The MGM Lion Is Ready To Roar Once Again!

22 December 2010 5:02 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Legendary studio MGM has announced it’s emergence from bankruptcy. Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum of Spyglass Entertainment will act as the new co-chairmen and CEOs of the company and they will have a cheque of $500 million in new investment to fund on tv and film projects.

Good news all round as they can throw some of that money onto The Hobbit pile to make sure there are no last minute hiccups in New Zealend and they should have change left to finish up work on two further promising films gathering dust on the shelf, Cabin in the Woods and Red Dawn.

And of course money to finance a new James Bond film!

Written by Joss Whedon and directed by ex Lost/Cloverfield writer Drew Goddard, Cabin in the Woods is described as a twist on the cliched wilderness horror setup and stars Chris Hemsworth, Richard Jenkins and Amy Acker. »

MGM Emerging from Bankruptcy to Produce ‘James Bond 23’

21 December 2010 6:07 PM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

MGM Studios has seen some dark days of late, having barely been salvaged by filing bankruptcy. Their nearly insurmountable financial woes led to the delay of not only The Hobbit, directed by Peter Jackson, but also James Bond 23 -- starring the blondest James Bond of all, Daniel Craig.

Recently, the studio went through a massive, thorough restructuring and was able to acquire $500 million worth of credit from Jp Morgan, a good chunk of which will likely be spent on the follow-up to Quantum of Solace. MGM is expected to partner with Sony for co-financing, as it has done in the past with Casino Royale and Quantum.

2012 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Dr. No (1962), the very ...

Is There Any Chance Mortensen, Craig, Jackman or Hamm Lead Howard's 'The Dark Tower'?

20 December 2010 4:05 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Los Angeles Times spoke with director Ron Howard about his upcoming adaptation of Stephen King's massive fantasy series The Dark Tower of which Howard is set to direct the first film of a planned trilogy and then the first season of a tie-in television series based on the seven novel series with Akiva Goldsman (I Am Legend) writing the screenplay for each.

The project is yet to get the official green light, but the first film is tentatively slated to hit theaters on May 17, 2013 and Howard tells "Los Angeles Times" reporter Geoff Boucher progress on the film is moving quickly and he's becoming a bit obsessed with the franchise. The idea to turn King's work into three films with a tie-in television series is excellent if you ask me, as it creates a way to capture the massive scope of the novels without trying to cram it all »

‘The Tourist’ Review

9 December 2010 10:38 PM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

Screen Rant’s Vic Holtreman reviews The Tourist

Usually, it’s a Sci-Fi or superhero film that comes along from time to time which relies primarily on its “look” above everything else – one doesn’t usually expect a drama, romance or semi-action/adventure story to rely on its visual aspect to carry it. The Tourist does just that, whether that was director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck’s intention or not.

Of course there are worse things than a film which stars Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp relying on its appearance.

We begin in the beautiful city of Paris, with the most beautiful Angelina Jolie (it’s the eyes I tell ya). She is so aristocratic here that she fairly glides across the screen – and she is under…

‘Real Steel’ Teaser Trailer – Robot Battles With Heart & Purpose

9 December 2010 10:20 AM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

Yesterday brought us the Transformers 3 teaser trailer. Today, as if in response to Michael Bay’s third entry in his battling robots franchise (which he swears is the best yet) comes the teaser trailer for Real Steel, the movie starring Hugh Jackman (The Wolverine) as a fighter who gets a second chance at glory in the ring via the world robot battling.

If you aren’t familiar with this flick, check out the Real Steel official synopsis for the lowdown on what the movie’s story is about:

A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near future , where the sport of boxing has gone hi-tech, “Real Steel” stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall…

Michael Bay Talks ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ Story & 3D

8 December 2010 2:48 PM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

Michael Bay has taken a lot of flak for the Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Some of it is unjustified hatred by those who dislike his films – much of it stems from a flurry of quotes attempting to disprove Bay’s use of 3D.

The explosive director has been relatively reserved about it all, apart from two shout outs to Internet journalists where he called them “morons.” Finally, Bay invited the press to see what he is cooking under Paramount’s roof.

A handful of select journalists got an inside look at the three-week-old post-production of Transformers 3. It included an in-depth discussion with the director regarding every aspect of the upcoming film – essentially an informal press conference. For the first time in recent memory, Bay truly…

James Cameron Producing 3D Cirque Du Soleil Movie

8 December 2010 10:45 AM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

There’s no denying that James Cameron is obsessed with 3D, as every upcoming project he’s connected with is being shot in that format. One of those in-development pics could definitely be worth the price of putting on clunky glasses to view in the third dimension – namely, the Cirque du Soleil feature that Cameron is producing.

Cameron is teaming up with Andrew Adamson (director of the first two Chronicles of Narnia and Shrek movies) on a family-friendly flick that will be a hybrid of 3D footage from the famous acrobatics/dance group’s performances and a straightforward narrative film.

Deadline says that Adamson is directing the Cirque dul Soleil project, which revolves around a character who is transported into a magical realm – with the group’s Las Vegas shows serving as a backdrop…

Fox Cuts 9 Episodes from ‘Lie to Me’ Season 3; Show Not Canceled (Yet)

8 December 2010 7:53 AM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

Fans of Lie to Me will be disappointed to learn that Fox has decided not to pick up a back-nine order for the show – limiting the third season to only 13 episodes.

Fox made the decision to not order more episodes of the well-received investigation procedural, which stars Academy Award-nominee Tim Roth, due to the incoming show The Chicago Code (yet another police procedural).

However, there is a (slight) silver lining to Fox’s decision. According to Deadline, the move to not pick up the back-nine of Lie to Me does not mean that the network is canceling the series – at least, not yet. It also doesn’t mean that Lie to Me to…

Hugh Jackman Promises ‘The Wolverine’ Will Have More Depth

8 December 2010 6:49 AM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

The filmmakers behind The Wolverine are being understandably tight-lipped about the details of their upcoming production, but that hasn’t stopped them from building up a little enthusiasm with a few choice tidbits.

Director Darren Aronofsky delivered one of the more intriguing developments when he revealed that the film will not have ties to the existing X-Men franchise or the previous spin-off, X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Producer Lauren Shuler Donner has promised that the script by Oscar-winning screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects) will be much closer in spirit to the source material. In this case, that source material is a successful run of Wolverine comics from the 1980s by Frank Miller and Chris Claremont, which focused on the character’s exploits in Japan.

Aronofsky was one of several contenders vying the director’s chair, but…

The Hobbit Cast Adds Seven More – Including Cate Blanchett

7 December 2010 5:11 PM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

The Hobbit is officially on safe ground after being mixed up in MGM’s protracted financial ordeal. The long-awaited project received the official green light back in October and from then on actors have been joining the cast left, right and center.

Today comes news of more actors joining The Hobbit cast, some of whom you’ll be familiar with – from both in and outside of the Lord of the Rings universe – and some you most likely won’t be familiar with it at all.

Warner Bros./New Line Cinema have announced via press release that well known actors Cate Blanchett, Sylvester McCoy (formerly Doctor Who himself), Mikael Persbrandt (Everlasting Moments, Day and Night) and Ken Stott (Rebus) have joined The Hobbit cast. Blanchett will reprise her role from the Lotr trilogy as…

Sr Pick [Video]: ‘The Princess Bride’ Star Wars Lightsaber Duel

7 December 2010 9:33 AM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

Dueling is truly an endangered animal in cinema. Once upon a time, in the days of Errol Flynn and Captain Blood, one could count on the movies to provide you with a an epic clash of swords and skill. In the late 70s/early 80s, George Lucas and other filmmakers of the time recaptured the fine art of the duel, resulting in some of the best battles onscreen in films like the Star Wars saga.

Today’s movie audiences only know about how a proper cinematic duel is staged by way of films like Pirates of the Caribbean (the first one, not the ridiculous overwrought sequels), but are likely more familiar with the Kung Fu tainted influenced dueling action of films like The Matrix and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, or the ‘diddle your wand’ “duels” of…

Darren Aronofsky Still Wants To Bring Robocop Back To Life

7 December 2010 8:00 AM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

As we told you recently, MGM‘s restructuring plan was approved by the bankruptcy court. Why this matters so much to movie lovers is that it’s one step forward towards getting long-stalled out projects up and running, and headed towards the big-screen. Bond 23 is one of them, and a planned remake of RoboCop with director Darren Aronofsky (The Wolverine, Black Swan) at the helm was another.

The director recently spoke with The Playlist and he is still thinking about resurrecting the brutally murdered cop turned super-human cyborg.

Aronofsky said,

“Well, ‘RoboCop’ may still happen one day, who knows? It’s MGM and hopefully they’ll clear their stuff up and I’m still interested. David Self wrote a great script, but the company went under so…”

If all the stars align and MGM reaches stability around the same time Aronofsky completes work on The Wolverine, he may be »

‘Rare Exports’ Director to Make ‘Home Alone’ With Machine Guns

7 December 2010 6:44 AM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

The Finnish film Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale is currently sitting so very pretty at 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. In fact, it’s even more critically successful than all the other recently released critical darlings, even Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, which sits at 86%.

For those unaware, Exports is the bizarre tale of some Finnish men who accidentally unearth the real Santa Claus, a mythical monster buried deep beneath the earth whose sole purpose is to painfully punish wicked children. Apparently, the film is so strange, stylistic, creative, and conceptually out-there that writer/director Jalmari Helander has already made a name for himself, prompting many a film fan to wonder: What’s next on the agenda?

‘Terriers’ put down: FX Cancels Show After First Season

6 December 2010 5:24 PM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

Terriers was one of the best-received of this season’s new cable shows, but FX has shut it down after its initial 13-episode run. Despite positive reviews, the show just couldn’t hold an audience – after its premiere caught 1.6 million viewers, Terriers struggled to break half a million for the rest of the season. Last week’s finale topped out at around 800,000 and FX president John Landgraf announced in a press conference this morning that it would be the end of the series.

Terriers focused on a pair of private detectives outside of San Diego; Hank Dolworth (Donal Logue of Grounded for Life and ER) is an ex-cop who teams up with former criminal Britt Pollack (Michael Raymond-James, True Blood) to solve crimes and make ends meet. The show was executive produced by Shawn Ryan, whose previous…

Sources Have 'James Bond 23' On Track for a November 2012 Release

6 December 2010 2:36 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Ever since MGM filed for bankruptcy at the beginning of November the talk has been that the studio wanted James Bond 23 to hit theaters in November 2012. So much of what's been bandied about lately is hardly news, but there's talk and Bond talk is interesting so let's dig in...

On December 2, MGM received court approval for its pre-packaged bankruptcy plan. Belief is this will allow the company to "once again access the capital it needs to produce films based on treasured properties such as James Bond."

Quoted by The Wrap, MGM Co-Chief Executive Officer Stephen Cooper said, "Today's ruling is an important milestone for MGM... By dramatically reducing MGM's debt load and providing MGM with access to new capital, the reorganization plan the Court confirmed today will enable MGM to emerge from this process with a solid financial foundation and will position MGM to be a successful studio going forward. »

Cheech Marin Gets ‘Outnumbered’ in New Fox Comedy

6 December 2010 1:56 PM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

Cheech Marin is aiming for another career “high” – pun intended – with a new half-hour pilot for Fox. The comedy, titled Outnumbered, has the actor of Cheech and Chong fame hoping for a better outcome than his last Fox comedy, The Ortegas, which was pulled by the network before getting the chance to crawl, let alone fly. Marin’s last steady role in a sitcom dates back to the 1993 show The Golden Palace, a spin-off of The Golden Girls that also proved an early vehicle for Don Cheadle.

Marin’s most successful television project to date has been Nash Bridges, which spanned six seasons on CBS from 1996 to 2001. The 64-year-old actor was most recently seen on ABC’s Lost and in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete.

Outnumbered is based on the lives and familial shenanigans common…

'Bond 23' Goes Full Steam Ahead, Scheduled To Be Out November Of 2012

6 December 2010 1:48 PM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

Everything's been going to hell for the once powerful MGM who continually struggles to get the next James Bond film ("Bond 23") off the ground. If you had a potent franchise like that under your belt, you'd more than likely be doing the same things that this poor company is doing. Word has it that "Bond 23" could begin fairly soon in order to reach their November 2012 release. At this point MGM with "Bond 23" is acting like an engine that tries to start up but constantly fails. They've been trying to get this production off the ground for awhile now, and you kind of can't blame them. Not only is this a big money-maker of a franchise, but you certainly don't want this generation's Bond, Daniel Craig, to ultimately loose interest and walk away from it all.Sam Mendes is still attached to the production, and casting may have »

George Clooney To Make ‘Enron’ Movie

6 December 2010 1:32 PM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

George Clooney is never one to shy away from controversy. The Oscar-winning filmmaker who has made some challenging and politically polarizing films such as Syriana, Good Night, and Good Luck and The Men Who Stare at Goats now plans to bring the hit West End play Enron to the big screen.

However, it appears that a few people aren’t happy with some of the choices that Clooney has made.In September we learned that Spider-Man producer Laura Ziskin and Columbia Pictures were making the Enron film, but this is the first mention of Clooney’s attachment to the project as a producer – and Observer also states that he is “also likely to direct it”.

The official synopsis of the play reads as follows:

Paul Dano to Sign On For Rian Johnson’s Sci-Fi ‘Looper’

4 December 2010 5:20 PM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood, Little Miss Sunshine) is in the final stages of negotiations for a role in Rian Johnson’s latest genre exploration Looper.

Dano would round out an already impressive cast which includes: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt. Gordon-Levitt also starred in Johnson’s first film Brick, a noir homage in the vein of a Dashiell Hammett novel.

In a conversation with Moviefone earlier this year, Johnson described Looper:

Looper is a time travel movie, set in a near future where time travel doesn’t exist but will be invented in a few decades. It’s pretty dark in tone, much different from Bloom, and involves a group of killers (called Loopers) who work for a crime syndicate in the future. Their bosses send their targets hogtied and blindfolded back in time…
