Kimberly Fox to launch MadRiver sales arm

5 February 2016 9:34 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Megan Ellison’s sales chief is joining Marc Butan’s MadRiver Pictures as a partner and will launch the international sales arm in Berlin.

The new division will handle sales on all MadRiver films and those from Christopher Woodrow’s Vendian Entertainment, which has made a strategic investment in MadRiver Pictures following the $30m revolving equity investment it committed to when the company launched last May.

MadRiver’s upcoming slate includes Burr Steers’ new release Pride & Prejudice & Zombies starring Lily James, John Hillcoat’s imminent crime thriller Triple 9 with Chiwetel Ejiofor, Casey Affleck and Woody Harrelson, and James Gray’s The Lost City Of Z starring Charlie Hunnam.

The company is in pre-production on Peter Landesman’s Felt, which was announced during the Afm last November and stars Liam Neeson. Sierra/Affinity handles sales on that title.

Fox will continue to run the Annapurna International label, whose titles include Richard Linklater’s upcoming SXSW opener [link=tt »

29 January 2016 10:12 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

The same five filmmakers who have been nominated for the best director Oscar — Room‘s Lenny Abrahamson, The Revenant‘s Alejandro G. Inarritu, Spotlight‘s Tom McCarthy, The Big Short‘s Adam McKay and Mad Max: Fury Road‘s George Miller — have been named Outstanding Directors of the Year by the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. They will be celebrated, individually and then collectively, at Santa Barbara’s historic Arlington Theatre on Feb. 11, the fest announced Thursday.

“These directors have each made their mark on the film canon and have solidified their standing as some of the best directors of our time,” said Sbiff executive director Roger Durling. “The fact that these films come on the heels of already illustrious and established careers makes this honor even more special.”

This particular event — which I am very excited to moderate for the second year in »

2016 Sundance Trading Card Series: #8. Camille Rutherford (Jacqueline Argentine)

26 January 2016 7:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Eric Lavallee: Name me three of your favorite “2015 discoveries”.

This year I discovered Extras, the series Ricky Gervais did after The Office. It’s so funny. This guy is insane. I want his talent and his brain.

I go the cinema all the time, I think one movie that really impressed me was Foxcatcher. The script is incredible, the ideas, the atmosphere.

I want to buy the dvd. The last thing that comes to mind right now is David Bowie. All his songs. I can’t stop listening to him. Ashes to ashes. Heroes. Woew. He was wonderful. I also can’t stop listening to a Pink Floyd song at the moment, Paintbox. I love the melody. I want it in my next short film but I’ll never have the money for it. It must be so expensive to have Pink Floyd in a movie. Oh, I must say »

‘A Gathering of Saints’ Movie in the Works With ‘Foxcatcher’ Exec Producer

25 January 2016 2:34 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Catch & Release Films is developing a movie based on the book “A Gathering of Saints: A True Story of Money, Murder and Deceit” about a pair of 1985 bombing murders in Utah.

Catch & Release principals Tom Heller and Frank Hall Green will produce the movie through their shingle, which acquired the rights to “A Gathering of Saints” from New York Times reporter Robert Lindsay, who also authored “The Falcon and the Snowman.”

Heller executive produced “Foxcatcher” after discovering the source material for the story in 2004, acquiring life rights to Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz and bringing the material to director Bennett Miller. He also has credits on “Precious,” “127 Hours,” “Win-Win” and “Mud.”

“A Gathering of Saints” investigates the three separate bombings, which killed two individuals and seriously injured a third, by Mark Hofmann — a disillusioned Mormon who used his talents to blackmail the Mormon Church by releasing forgeries of documents about the »

With ‘Margaret’ Trauma Behind Him, Kenneth Lonergan Returns to Sundance With ‘Manchester by the Sea’

21 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Writer-director Kenneth Lonergan returns to the Sundance Film Festival this week with “Manchester by the Sea,” his third feature film to date. It’s a homecoming of sorts, as he premiered his directorial debut, “You Can Count on Me,” at the fest in 2000. But the time in between has been incredibly taxing for the 53-year-old filmmaker. The saga of “Margaret” — a film written in the wake of 9/11, filmed in 2005, originally slated for a 2007 release, tied up in litigation over final cut for years and finally released by Fox Searchlight in 2011 — left quite the scar. He’s eager to shake off that trauma as he heads back to Park City with a hotly anticipated drama starring Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams and Kyle Chandler.

How does it feel to finally have the ordeal of “Margaret” behind you?

It feels good to be further away from it. I don’t think it’s »

‘Room’s’ Surprise Oscar Nominee Lenny Abrahamson Tried Not to Read the Predictions

15 January 2016 12:42 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jet-lagged and still on Los Angeles time in Dublin yesterday morning, “Room” director Lenny Abrahamson woke up in the afternoon, sauntered downstairs and figured he’d watch the nominations announcement and show some love for star Brie Larson, who was a favorite to be mentioned. He didn’t figure on too much support from the Academy besides, because, like any artist new to the awards circuit, he couldn’t help but pay attention to the punditry.

“It’s very hard not to look,” Abrahamson says. “The way I describe it is if you’re sitting at a restaurant and you realize the people in the next booth are talking about you and they don’t know you’re there, of course it’s almost impossible not to listen. I managed for quite a period of time not to look. And it became more pleasant, to do your thing and let it happen in the background. »

Channing Tatum and Beyoncé “Run the World” Together on Lip Sync Battle

8 January 2016 8:43 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Channing Tatum has been getting a lot of praise in recent years for his acting in films, such as Foxcatcher, 22 Jump Street, and even, most recently, The Hateful Eight. However, I’m not sure if Tatum has ever given a better performance than the show he put on during this week’s Lip Sync Battle on Spike. Although, the actor did have a little bit of help from the Queen B herself, Beyoncé. Last night’s Lip Sync Battle was a duel between spouses, as Tatum and his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum (who is currently recurring as Lucy Lane on CBS’ Supergirl) went head-to-head in one of the show’s most fun battles

Spotlight movie review: all the pope’s men

6 January 2016 1:36 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

An elegy for old-school reportage and the people who pursue it, and a journalistic procedural with a snappy rush of urgent discovery and consequence. I’m “biast” (pro): partial to stories about journalists, love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

For me, this kind of story is why we do this.” So says Liev Schreiber as Marty Baron, the editor of the Boston Globe newspaper on the eve of the publication, in January 2002, of a story the team of investigative journalists in the paper’s Spotlight department had been working on for months. It would crack open the coverup of pedophile priests in the Catholic Church in Boston, led to the revelations of similar coverups around the U.S. and across the planet, and would go on to win a Pulitzer Prize in 2003. But “this kind of story »

Golden Globes 2016: Who's Going to Win

6 January 2016 12:32 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Winning a Golden Globe doesn't have the same cachet as getting an Oscar or an Emmy, but the awards ceremony itself is often more entertaining, for one big reason: It's unpredictable. The stars are boozed-up, the atmosphere's informal, and the outcomes are … well, sometimes pretty bizarre. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is a small organization, and keeps both its membership and its voting practices shrouded in mystery. It's often hard to make sense of its choices, because shadowy cabals would rather not explain themselves.

Steve Carell Receives His Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

6 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s a notable lineage in cinematic history of gifted comedic actors who have gone on to achieve great commercial and critical success as dramatic players. Perhaps the most famous example is Robin Williams, whose career began with his now-iconic role as a wacky, displaced alien on “Mork & Mindy” before giving way to parts with considerable heft, from the titular lead in “The World According to Garp” to his revelatory turn in “The Fisher King” to his Academy Award-winning performance as Matt Damon’s therapist in “Good Will Hunting.”

And there are scores of other comedians, from Jackie Gleason to Michael Keaton to Bill Murray, all three of whom received Oscar nominations for their dramatic work in “The Hustler,” “Birdman” and “Lost in Translation,” respectively.

And now there’s Steve Carell, who rose from a “senior correspondent” on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” to loner workaday hero Michael Scott »
