Jaume Collet-Serra to Direct Another Shark Movie, This One at Sony

25 June 2015 7:51 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Sharks, more sharks everywhere. In addition to the giant shark movie Meg finally getting a new director (Eli Roth, details below) another shark movie has found a director. Deadline says Spanish filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra, of House of Wax, Orphan, Unknown, Non-Stop and Run All Night, is looking at directing a movie called In the Deep at Sony Pictures. While it sounds a lot like that 2003 found footage thriller Open Water, the descriptions compare it to Gravity or 127 Hours meets Jaws – or any shark movie. It's about a young woman surfing on an isolated beach who gets stranded at a buoy off-shore because of a great white shark in the water and she can't swim back. I'm sure there's more to the story, but that is a scary scenario. As for the other shark movie, it was just revealed a few weeks ago that Eli Roth is taking over directing the »

Jaume Collet-Serra Swims Toward '127 Hours' Meets 'Jaws' Meets 'Gravity' Shark Movie 'In The Deep'

24 June 2015 10:48 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

So, are shark movies a thing now? I suppose it'll take three to officially make it a trend, but Eli Roth was recently slated to helm "Meg," and now another predator pic is getting in the water. Deadline reports that "Orphan," "Non-Stop," and "Run All Night" helmer Jaume Collet-Serra is eyeballing the director's chair for "In The Deep." Penned by Tony Jaswinski, the story centers on a young woman clinging to a buoy twenty yards off shore of an isolated beach, with a great white shark in her path to safety. Yikes. Even more, this one is being compared to "127 Hours," "Jaws," and "Gravity," so basically, it'll be intense. Hollywood is going to make it scary to get in the water again, but I mostly hope that if Collet-Serra does the movie, he casts Liam Neeson, and we get to watch the actor punch a shark. »

In the Deep: Orphan Director ‘Circling’ Shark Thriller

24 June 2015 8:58 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Jaume Collet-Serra broke out in horror. His House of Wax is an entirely undervalued contemporary slasher, while his Orphan was a glorious killer kid summer surprise. Soon after however, he abandoned the genre for a different kind of golden trash: the B-action thriller. Can we find a happy medium?  Deadline reports Serra is “circling” In the Deep, an…

The Magnificent Seven Remake Just Picked Up The Perfect Villain

21 May 2015 8:26 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The idea of a Magnificent Seven remake was initially met with jeers and cynism, but now that Sony Pictures continues to beef up its cast with an all-star ensemble, public opinion is swaying. The latest addition to join this remake of a remake is Peter Sarsgaard, and if his body of work is any indication, he's going to make a great antagonist. Variety first reported the news of Sarsgaard, who's known for roles in Lovelace (playing a scumbag pornographer), Green Lantern (as the mentally unstable Hector Hammond), Jarhead, Orphan, and Flightplan, among many others. According to the trade, he'll play the film's main villain, that of the robber baron named Bartholomew Bogue. The original Magnicent Seven, released in 1960 as a remake of director Akira Kurosawa’s The Seven Samurai, followed seven gunslingers who protect a small Mexican village from a gang »

Review: Liam Neeson can't keep dull action thriller 'Run All Night' on its feet

13 March 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Beloved serial killer John Taken is back for another heartwarming family adventure! I'm confused by the continuity on this series, though. I'm pretty sure this takes place after "Taken 2" and "Non-Stop," but before "Walk Among The Tombstones," and parallel to "Taken 3" and "Unknown." In this entry in the long-running hit series, John Taken (Liam Neeson) and his son Mike Taken (Joel Kinnaman) go head-to-head with the Red Skull (Ed Harris) after witnessing Red Skull Jr. (Boyd Holbrook) murdering some Armenian heroin smugglers. Plus Nick Nolte shows up for about five minutes, and I'm not 100% sure he knew he was in a movie. Here's the thing about Jaume Collet-Serra: he is just weird enough to stand out from the pack of fairly anonymous filmmakers who make studio level B-movies these days. There are a bunch of these guys, many of them graduates of the Luc Besson action factory, »

Jaume Collet-Serra says there has been no progress on the Akira remake

9 March 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Some movies spend an eternity in development hell before finally becoming a reality. Others become warnings to filmmakers or bedtime stories that keep Hollywood executives awake. The live action remake of Akira is one of those films. For years, everyone from Leonardo DiCaprio, Stephen Norrington, Allen and Albert Hughes, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Zac Efron, Morgan Freeman, James Franco, Keanu Reeves, Keira Knightley, and Gary Oldman were involved and nothing happened. Most recently, Orphan and »

First Image Of Stephen King Adaptation Cell Arrives Online

5 February 2015 12:20 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The first image from Stephen King adaptation Cell has arrived today alongside news that Clarius Entertainment has acquired U.S. distribution rights to the film. Helmed by Paranormal Activity 2’s Tod Williams, the movie stars John Cusack as a man desperate to track down his family after a bizarre Twilight Zone-inspired incident hits the country.

Co-starring Samuel L. Jackson (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan) and Stacy Keach (Nebraska), Cell orbits around this central group of strangers who unite after a signal hits all mobile phone networks across the U.S. The dangerous transmission soon turns cell phone users into murderous slaves to an unknown power. Needless to say, they each strive to find their loved ones as the national crisis escalates.

As a first teaser for those disastrous events, the image which accompanied the news is pretty standard fare. Cusack, Jackson and Fuhrman stand on a vandalized street, »

First Look at Stephen King's 'Cell' Starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson

5 February 2015 8:26 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Well, this could mean trouble for Cell as it was announced this morning Clarius Entertainment has acquired domestic distribution rights to the film based on the Stephen King novel of the same name. So far Clarius has had an awful track record at the box office with the releases of And So It Goes, Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return and most recently the Nicole Kidman starrer Before I Go To Sleep, the three of which combine for a grand total of only $26.8 million at the domestic box office. The budget of the Oz feature alone was $70 million while the other two haven't even been reported. Perhaps, however, this will be a turn for the better as the film, directed by Tod "Kip" Williams (Paranormal Activity 2), stars John Cusack, Samuel L. Jackson, Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan) and Stacy Keach centers on a powerful signal broadcast across mobile networks worldwide, resulting in »
