Mama director Andres Muschietti could be the man to bring Stephen King's It to the big screen

17 July 2015 4:48 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

New Line's reboot of Stephen King's It is alive and well, in spite of the departure of director Cary Fukunaga.

Plans for a two-part movie based on the classic horror novel are moving ahead with Mama director Andres Muschietti potentially taking over.

New Line's partnership with Andres will likely involve his sister Barbara Muschietti coming aboard in a producer role, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It had been scheduled to go into production this summer prior to Fukunaga's departure in May, after working on the project for three years.

Changes to the movie's direction mean that The Maze Runner's Will Poulter is no longer necessarily still attached to play the demonic clown Pennywise, but he could come back aboard at some later stage.

There is no word yet on when production will begin with Andres Muschietti at the helm.

Comic-Con 2015 Interviews: Scott Wilson, Barbara Hershey, Glen Mazzara & Bradley James Talk Damien

12 July 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

At Comic-Con, I recently joined the press room for A&E's The Omen sequel series, Damien, where, along with a handful of journalists, I caught up with writer/executive producer Glen Mazzara and cast members Bradley JamesBarbara Hershey, and Scott Wilson, who discussed the upcoming adult Antichrist series.

Glen Mazzara on the tone of the show:

"It is realistic, we're using the original 1976 film as the source not only of the story but of the style of filmmaking. That film was very grounded, it felt like it was taking place in the world and so we're trying to follow that, you know? I think that's what makes the horror play. If you feel that it's real. Once something becomes very involved, very dependent on special effects, I tend to feel not as frightened, to tell you the truth. So we're trying to stay as realistic feeling as possible.

First Trailer For "Damien" TV Series

9 July 2015 8:31 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A&E have debuted the first trailer for "Damien," the new TV series follow-up to the original 1976 "The Omen" with former "Merlin" star Bradley James taking on the role of the Antichrist-to-be Damien Thorne. In the new take, he's now a thirty-year-old war photographer who has forgotten everything about his past.

Glen Mazzara ("The Walking Dead," "The Shield") produces the series which he calls "grounded" and realistic. There'll be some special effects dealing with Damien's powers, but for the most part they're subtle.

Speaking at Comic Con earlier today, James says this version's Damien is aware that "there are strange things going on, and his life is not what other people’s lives seem to be." The first season will essentially deal with his struggle between his regular-guy humanity and the destiny that Lucifer planned for him after he learns the truth.

One of the factors will be his »

“It was quite extraordinary,” he says via phone from South Africa, where the series shoots. “I got to play some really cool stuff as an actor, really interesting stuff, stuff that you’re not normally asked to do… It was a gas.”

Oscar Nominated Moody Pt.2: From Fagin to Merlin - But No Harry Potter

Ron Moody as Fagin in 'Oliver!' based on Charles Dickens' 'Oliver Twist.' Ron Moody as Fagin in Dickens musical 'Oliver!': Box office and critical hit (See previous post: "Ron Moody: 'Oliver!' Actor, Academy Award Nominee Dead at 91.") Although British made, Oliver! turned out to be an elephantine release along the lines of – exclamation point or no – Gypsy, Star!, Hello Dolly!, and other Hollywood mega-musicals from the mid'-50s to the early '70s.[1] But however bloated and conventional the final result, and a cast whose best-known name was that of director Carol Reed's nephew, Oliver Reed, Oliver! found countless fans.[2] The mostly British production became a huge financial and critical success in the U.S. at a time when star-studded mega-musicals had become perilous – at times downright disastrous – ventures.[3] Upon the American release of Oliver! in Dec. 1968, frequently acerbic The »

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell episode 5 review: Arabella

14 June 2015 12:15 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Bertie Carvel shines, along with the rest of the cast, in this week’s captivating, madness-themed Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell…

This review contains spoilers.

1.5 Arabella

Forget Barb meters drily totting up television ratings, the true measure of a TV episode should be judged by the volume of a viewer’s involuntary wail when the end credits appear. By that system, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell registers off the scale. When the screen turned black at the close of tonight’s instalment, my neighbour knocked on the party wall to check I hadn’t done myself an injury.

As an adult, watching this series is the closest I’ve come to the childhood experience of being read a new and spell-binding bedtime book. In the joy of the anticipation, in the telling, and in the frustration of realising a chapter’s end has snuck up on you mid-tale; that’s just how it feels. »

Humans: Is Channel 4's striking new series really science fiction?

11 June 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Channel 4 has won much acclaim for its exploration of themes of technophobia in Black Mirror - and on Sunday night (June 14), the broadcaster returns to that topic, but on a much grander scale, in new 8-part series Humans.

A co-production with Us cable network AMC - home to The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad and Mad Men - Humans is based on a European production called Real Humans, which has aired two acclaimed series in its native Sweden.

Relocated to suburban London, Humans will otherwise explore similar territory to the original - it's again set in a parallel present where uncanny humanoid robots, known as 'Synths', are as commonplace in the home as a mobile phone or an iPad.

"Overall, it's the same idea, we just tell the story in a different way," says producer Chris Fry. "Towards the middle of the series, it does change quite a lot [from the original] - with this subject matter, »

'The Rising'

1 June 2015 5:04 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Colin Morgan, the lead in the BBC and Syfy’s Merlin and a cast regular on Humans, has been cast in the Irish historical thriller that is scheduled to shoot in winter 2015/16.

Kevin McCann will direct The Rising and is targeting a 2016 release to mark the centenary of The Easter Rebellion, when the Irish Republican Brotherhood clashed with British occupying forces in Dublin.

The insurrection was suppressed after six days but revived secessionism and returned it to the forefront of Irish politics.

McCann co-wrote the screenplay with Colin Broderick, which centres on Irish freedom fighter Sean McDermott and predates events in the films Michael Collins and The Wind That Shakes The Barley.

David O’Hara has joined the cast as Irish revolutionary leader James Connolly. The Pogues frontman Shane MacGowan will write the theme song.

All Films, the Oscar-nominated company that produced Tangerines, are in talks to reunite with McCann after the parties collaborated on the 2015 short »

Fanny Ardant begins ‘Waiting For You’ shoot

1 June 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Merlin star Colin Morgan co-stars in British coming-of-age feature.

Shooting has begun in France on Waiting For You, a British drama starring Fanny Ardant (8 Women) and Colin Morgan (Merlin).

The film, funded by private equity, will shoot for five weeks on location in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France until June 20. Production will then move to the Ilford in the UK for a week.

Production designer Charles Garrad (The Englishman Who Went Up A Hill…) will make his feature directorial debut on the project, which he describes as “a lyrical mystery”.

The story centres on Paul (Morgan), who investigates his late father’s increasingly disturbing past and becomes suspicious of the mysterious, melancholic and probably dangerous Madeleine (Ardant).

Chris Curling (Hannibal Rising) produces for Zephyr Films and it will be shot by cinematographer David Raedeker (My Brother the Devil).

French actress Ardant won the Cesar Award for best actress in 1997 for Pedale Douche and was nominated »
