Is Guy Ritchie Going to Direct ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’?

8 December 2011 2:24 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Well, this is certainly going to make my piece about the Sherlock Homes: A Game of Shadows (coming next week! only here at Film School Rejects!) press conference a touch more interesting. Deadline Ratcliff reports that Warner Bros. is currently “making a deal” with director Guy Ritchie and his new partner Lionel Wigram to “come aboard” their The Man From U.N.C.L.E. feature that was recently vacated by director Steven Soderbergh. That’s really just sort of vague – Deadline has really buried the lede on this one, finally getting to it – “the intention is for Ritchie to direct the film.” A ha! Elementary! Ritchie and Wigram recently formed their own production company after making two Sherlock Holmes films together. Wigram wrote and produced the first Sherlock Holmes film, and serves as executive producer on the next installment, opening next week. Wigram has a bevy of other titles under his producer belt, including »

Max Borenstein Hired to Pen the Godzilla Remake for Legendary

10 November 2011 2:00 PM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Back in July, we brought you the news when writer David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, The Dark Knight Rises) was hired by Legendary Pictures to pen the script for their hotly anticipated remake of Godzilla, to be directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters).

Now, THR reports that Max Borenstein (The Seventh Son) has now been brought on by Legendary to pen the script. While Borenstein is relatively unknown at this point, he recently penned the script for Art of the Steal, re-wrote the script for The Seventh Son and is writing Jimi, the Jimi Hendrix biopic as well.

Godzilla is tentatively slated to hit theaters in 2014. »

"Godzilla," "Asteroids" get new screenwriters

10 November 2011 12:56 PM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

The "Transformers" series proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that movie audiences love nothing more than watching big, explosive, city-destroying science fiction action flicks. Luckily for fans of such material (ie. seemingly everyone on the planet), production is moving ahead on both a "Godzilla" reboot and the much-joked about adaptation of the classic arcade game "Asteroids," as both films now have screenwriters attached.

First up is "Godzilla," which is being rebooted by Legendary, and was rumored this past summer to be written by David Goyer. According to Heat Vision, however the writer behind this new version of everyone's favorite kaiju will be Max Borenstein. Though he's largely unknown to audiences, he's already a known quantity at Legendary, where he rewrote "The Seventh Son" and is working on "Jimi," a Jimi Hendrix biopic. The flick will be directed by Gareth Edwards, best known for the low-budget 2010 British alien flick "Monsters. »

Godzilla Reboot Finds New Writer

10 November 2011 9:13 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Back in August, we reported that David Goyer had been hired to write the script for the upcoming Godzilla reboot from Legendary Pictures. According to a new report, Max Borenstein has now been hired to continue work on the script. While the name may not be familiar to everyone, Max has been working with Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. on a number of projects, including The Seventh Son.

At this point, there is no information on whether or not Borenstein is working off of the David Goyer draft or it will be a brand new script. The film is still moving forward with MonstersGareth Edwards in the director’s chair and we’re glad to hear that Legendary isn’t rushing this project into production.

Not much is known about the new Godzilla film at this point, but if you’d like to hear Gareth Edwards talk about his approach to the material, »

Max Borenstein is the Latest Writer on ‘Godzilla’ For Legendary Pictures

10 November 2011 7:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Briefly: In March 2010 Legendary Pictures announced [1] that it would make a new Godzilla film. All the wrongs done by Roland Emmerich's 1998 film would be made right, and we would get a sci-fi creature feature that stands up to the best films in the long-running character's history. That was the idea, at least, but in almost two years since that deal was announced we still know almost nothing about what Legendary is doing with Godzilla. We know that Gareth Edwards, director of Monsters, is in the director's chair [2]. We've heard that there will be other monsters [3] in the film. David Callaham drafted a script, and last time we had any reliable word it was that David Goyer was writing a new draft [4]. That was in July of this year. Now there is a new writer: Max Borenstein, who wrote Art of the Steal, a draft of The Seventh Son and »

Godzilla Stomping For a New Scribe

10 November 2011 12:13 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

In the northeast corner of the Dread Central offices, we have a tiny shrine built to the king of all monsters, Godzilla. Each morning we leave an offering of mini-military vehicles in a tiny basket at his mighty feet, just praying that the new American flick will actually be good. Speaking of which, there's been some more movement on its front.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Max Borenstein (The Seventh Son) has been tapped to write the planned remake of Godzilla. Gareth Edwards, the director of the indie sci-fi movie Monsters, is attached to direct the creature feature centered on the giant city-destroying and monster-fighting lizard, which is in development at Legendary Pictures.

Legendary's Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing along with Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Brian Rogers. Warner Bros. will distribute per its deal with Legendary.

David Goyer (The Dark Knight) previously worked on the script.

Screenwriter Max Borenstein Attached To New 'Godzilla'

9 November 2011 10:08 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The next foray into American cinema for 'Godzilla' is slowly but surely moving forward. The last time the script was brought up, David Goyer of 'The Dark Knight Rises' and 'Man of Steel' was working on it. THR reports that screenwriter Max Borenstein has been assigned to pick up the slack. Borenstein doesn't really have much to his name right now. He wrote and directed the 2003 film, 'Swordswallowers and Thin Men.' It looks to be a limited beyond limited kind of release. More recently, he rewrote the screenplay for 'The Seventh Son,' supernatural fare that is based on the writing of author Joseph Delaney. The film's cast features Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore and, Ben Barnes.Details are very light on the new 'Godzilla,' which has 'Monsters' helmer, Gareth Edwards attached to direct. Months back, he said:  "I guess I »

Max Borenstein to Write Godzilla Reboot

9 November 2011 9:19 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

This summer it was reported that David Goyer would write the Godzilla reboot brewing over at Legendary.  The news gave Matt pause at the time, and I tend to agree.  Goyer is hit (The Dark Knight) or miss (The Unborn), and its not entirely clear how responsible he is for the hits.  We'll have to find other things to worry about, though, since Heat Vision reports Legendary has hired Max Borenstein to write Godzilla.  Wisely, Borenstein has not yet amassed a series of credits by which Matt and I would judge him.  But you'll see "Written by Max Borenstein" on a number of films over the next few years.  He just turned in the latest draft of Art of the Steal to producers Zac Efron and Kevin McCormick.  He entered into the Legendary family earlier this year with the assignment to rewrite The Seventh Son.  Last (but certainly not least »

‘Godzilla’ and ‘Asteroids’ Find Writers

9 November 2011 8:35 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

I became greatly excited for Legendary’s Godzilla reboot when Monsters helmer Gareth Edwards was announced as the director. A fresh, young voice taking on what might be the greatest of all screen monsters? Terrific. Then, the producers went in the complete opposite direction of a fresh, young voice by hiring David S. Goyer to write the script. To be fair, he isn’t the worst person you could give the job to — but his non-Nolan track record (Blade: Trinity, The Unborn) raises a red flag or three, and my hopes were therefore quickly diminished.

Now I’m enthusiastic again, because THR tells us that Max Borenstein will take over the screenplay, which Goyer is only mentioned as having “previously worked on.” He was only hired about four months ago, too; thankfully, I don’t see him having moved past a first draft. Borenstein‘s scripting credits are a little thin themselves, »

Legendary Gets 'Godzilla'-sized Pitch

9 November 2011 8:02 PM, PST | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

Contrary to my predictions, Monsters director Gareth Edwards is still attached to direct a reboot of Godzilla for Legendary Pictures, and there's been plenty of progress to report. Heat Vision broke the news this evening that Max Borenstein has landed the enormous task of bringing the Japanese green lizard back to theaters. David Goyer had previously worked on the script. My inside sources tell me that is hasn't been an easy task finding a writer to crack the code. How do you keep the integrity of the "man in a rubber suit" lore while modernizing it? It's not an easy concept to pitch. Therefore, Borenstein must have something special up his sleeve. What would you guys like to see? Borenstein rewrote Legendary's supernatural fantasy The Seventh Son. Based on the Joseph Delaney Ya book, it's due to go into production with Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore and Ben Barnes attached to star. »

Legendary Pictures Hires Max Borenstein To Pen Godzilla Remake

9 November 2011 6:38 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Source: THR Max Borenstein (The Seventh Son) has been tapped to write the planned remake of Godzilla. He currently wrote screenplay for Seventh Son for Legendary which is currently in pre-production. Apparently,the brass at Legendary are so impressed with his work that he's being given the responsibility to kickstart a potential tentpole franchise for the company. Sounds risky to me, seeing as he virtually has no other credits to his name unless you count writing a litany of films that were later re-written by others. Time will tell if that trend of near misses continues here or if this is indeed Mr. Borensstein's big brake. Gareth Edwards, the director of the indie sci-fi movie Monsters, is attached to direct the Legendary Pictures film. Warner Bros. will distribute through Legendary.

New Writer For Godzilla

9 November 2011 4:01 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

“Everyone’s got a very strong opinion about Godzilla and what it should be," director Gareth Edwards told Empire earlier this year. And it seems that plenty of people are being given the opportunity to have their say: the news this morning is that Legendary's take on the atomic Japanese titan has just gained yet another writer.Max Borenstein is the latest incumbent at the writing desk, and like his predecessor David Goyer (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight), he's got plenty of history with Legendary, having worked on the screenplays for the gestating Jimi Hendrix biopic, and The Seventh Son, the adaptation of Joseph Delaney's The Spook's Apprentice. There's also Art Of The Steal, which Warners are developing with Zac Efron.The first writer we knew about, following the splash of early publicity announcing Legendary's scoring the Godzilla rights from Toho, was David Callaham, who wrote The Expendables and Doom. »

Exclusive: Ben Barnes Talks Killing Bono

1 November 2011 1:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Actor Ben Barnes discusses the incredible true story of Killing Bono, getting both the Irish accent and the music down, future projects, and much more.

Most movies based on a true story already have a built-in audience, fans of the subject matter. The wonderful new indie release Killing Bono, which is currently available on video on demand formats and will hit theaters November 4, is unique because it will appeal to both fans and haters of the mega-group U2. Killing Bono is based on the memoir of Neil McCormick, a childhood friend of Bono, The Edge, and the rest of U2. For years, Neil McCormick tried to achieve the same success as U2, while constantly living in their shadow, and this hilarious and heartfelt tale brilliantly shows us both the highs and lows of the cutthroat music business. Ben Barnes, best known to fans of The Chronicles of Narnia as Prince Caspian, »

Ben Barnes Talks Killing Bono and The Seventh Son

1 November 2011 1:26 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We’ve all gone to school with friends who have become more successful than ourselves, but Neil McCormick (played by Ben Barnes) had to watch while his friend Paul (Martin McCann) became Bono. While Neil always dreamed of life as a rock star, Bono became one of the most famous rock stars on the planet. No matter how hard they try, Neil and his brother Ivan (Robert Sheehan) never reach the fame and stardom of U2, instead destined to forever live in their shadow. During a recent phoner to promote Killing Bono, adapted from Neil McCormick’s book I Was Bono’s Doppleganger: A Life in the Shadows of Superstardom, actor Ben Barnes talked to Collider for this exclusive interview about the appeal of a biopic seen through the eyes of someone who just happened to be in the room, getting to live out his own rock star fantasy with this role, »

Exclusive: Ben Barnes Talks The Seventh Son and The Chronicles of Narnia

1 November 2011 1:21 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

I recently got the chance to speak with actor Ben Barnes, who was promoting his new movie Killing Bono, which hits theaters November 4. We also talked about several of his upcoming projects, including The Seventh Son. Here's what he had to say about the Sergey Bodrov adaptation, which begins production in March.

"I think The Seventh Son starts shooting in March. At the moment, I hear it's going to be Vancouver and China. I've seen some of the artwork for it, and it looks like nothing I've ever seen. Jeff Bridges is one of my favorite actors in the history of ever. After working with Robert De Niro and Robin Williams, and previously I've worked with Colin Firth, and working with Jeff Bridges next year, I'm surrounding myself with my idols. There's no better way to learn than that, really. I don't know how I've managed to get here."
