FilmNation Entertainment has tapped “Cars” scribe Dan Fogelman to direct his romance screenplay “Life Itself” with shooting starting in March in New York and Spain.

7 March 2016 2:38 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Warner Brothers and Chinese-based Gravity hope to sign director John Turteltaub to save the mega-shark movie Meg.

Turteltaub is best known for the National Treasure movies. He last directed 2013’s Last Vegas movie and upcoming TV pilot episode for Rush Hour.

3 March 2016 3:28 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many horror fans cheered when it was revealed that Eli Roth had come aboard to direct the big screen adaptation of the best selling novel Meg.

Director Jon Turteltaub Circling Shark Movie ‘Meg’

3 March 2016 3:15 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jon Turteltaub is in early talks to direct the shark action movie “Meg” for Warner Bros., sources confirmed to Variety.

Dean Georgaris is writing the screenplay based on Steve Alten’s novel “Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror.”

Belle Avery will produce the pic through her banner Apelles Entertainment, and Colin Wilson is producing through Maeday Productions. Eli Roth was attached but recently left the project.

Gerald Molen, Wayne Wei Jiang and Randy Greenberg are exec producing. Gravity Pictures will co-produce and co-finance the movie and distribute it in China.

The book revolves around two men who band together to fight an ancient shark threatening the California coast. The Megaladon, considered one of the largest and most powerful predators in history, can reach a length of 60 feet.

This time around the shark will be terrorizing the coast of China rather than California — a change that helped in bringing on Gravity Pictures as a co-financier. »

Trailers can hide what a film really is, or mislead you about what to expect, but functionally, they're meant to briefly encapsulate the movie they're advertising, and rarely has a film's corpulence been so perfectly distilled, with such repellent efficiency, as this.

In case you missed the trailer and might otherwise wander into a cinema with any other expectations, the title character is Dick Kelly (Robert De Niro), a septugenarian whose wife has recently passed after a long battle with cancer. He's not on good terms with his son (Dermot Mulroney), but his buttoned-down grandson Jason (Zac Efron »
