Michael De Luca Partners With Launch Pad to Find Books to Option (Exclusive)

20 June 2017 1:16 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Michael De Luca is on the prowl for a hit film.

The producer of “Fifty Shades of Grey” and “Moneyball” and his company, Michael De Luca Productions, have joined forces with the Launch Pad Competition to discover the next great novel to bring to screens. The event was started four years ago as a platform for showcasing literary talent. Last year, it began allowing writers to submit work in the manuscript stage. “Alien” director Ridley Scott and his Scott Free Productions participated in the inaugural contest, picking up two books to develop.

As part of the competition, De Luca has committed to option at least one winner. He will be joined by exclusive partners Energy Entertainment and Paradigm, who have each committed to signing one writer each from the competition, and publisher Inkshares, who has committed to publish a minimum of three books from the competition. Last year, Inkshares picked up eight books to publish. »

‘War Machine’ Review: Brad Pitt Stars In a Shrewd Blend of Wartime Drama and Workplace Satire

21 May 2017 9:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A movie called “War Machine” may not sound like a workplace satire, but that’s the savviest element in David Michod’s tone-shifting character study, in which Brad Pitt plays a naive army strategist lost in the fog of a conflict with no end in sight. As U.S. General Glen McMahon, Brad Pitt plays an overconfident military man tasked with winding down the war in Afghanistan, only to get trapped by hubris and vanity that have nothing to do with the mission. His greatest enemy is the job itself.

This might sound familiar. Set in 2012 in the midst of an election campaign, “War Machine” draws from Michael Hastings’ nonfiction “The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Story of America’s War in Afghanistan,” which recounts the pileup of dysfunctions surrounding his travels with General Stanley McChrystal, whose vocal opposition to the Obama Administration’s desire to wind down the »

A Look Back at Chris Cornell and Brad Pitt's Friendship Through the Years

19 May 2017 11:04 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Since the '90s, Brad Pitt has been one of Chris Cornell's biggest fans.

After the 52-year-old Soundgarden singer was found dead in a hotel room in Detroit, Michigan, following the band's concert on Wednesday night, a source told E! News that Pitt is "devastated and in shock" over the news. Cornell's death comes just a few days after the death of one of Pitt's other friends, former Paramount Pictures chairman and CEO Brad Grey.

"He is trying to process the loss of two great friends," the source said. "This has hit him very hard."

Pitt and Cornell's friendship goes back quite a ways, and so does the 53-year-old actor's admiration for the late rocker. In a 2004 interview, Pitt reportedly told Cinema Confidential, "I'm a big Chris Cornell addict, anything he does."

Jimmy Kimmel to return as 2018 Oscars host

16 May 2017 10:32 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd will return as producers.

Jimmy Kimmel will reprise his hosting duties at the 90th edition of the awards ceremony to be held on March 4, 2018.

Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs made the announcement today that Kimmel, De Luca and Todd will be reuniting for Hollywood’s biggest night. 

While the performance of all three received generally favorable reviews, they were ultimately overshadowed by the badly fumbled best picture announcement that incorrectly named La La Land the Oscar winner rather than the actual winner Moonlight. 

Kimmel serves as host and executive producer of Jimmy Kimmel Live! now in its 15th season. The show has earned six Emmy nominations in the outstanding variety series talk category, the writing for a variety series category, and the variety, music or comedy series category.

De Luca earned best picture Oscar nominations for producing Captain Phillips, Moneyball and The Social Network and has more than 60 film credits including »

Martin Scorsese Teases Gangster Drama ‘The Irishman,’ Says Not To Expect Another ‘Goodfellas’

12 May 2017 8:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Martin Scorsese’s next film,”The Irishman,” marks his ninth collaboration with actor Robert De Niro. And, while Scorsese’s fans might be hoping for another “Goodfellas” or “Casino,” the director says his upcoming Netflix ganster drama — which stars De Niro as Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, a mob hitman who’s rumored to be involved in the deaths of President Kennedy and Jimmy Hoffa — will be “a little different.”

The Best Of The Best – The Greatest Cinematographers and the Films that made them great

12 May 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

So, we come to the end of this particular series. We’ve covered a number of aspects of the creative input into film-making, including actors, actresses, writers composers, and directors (in two parts). We’ve stopped short of costume, make-up, special effects, art design and others, however our final stop is Cinematography. The Dop exerts plenty of influence over the look of the film. Yes, lighting, production design and the director’s vision are key too, but the consistency and persistence with which certain directors stick with and return to a trusted Dop shows just how much they contribute.

Seven has a unique visual aesthetic. Plenty of films have gone for the “always raining, always dark” approach, but contrast Seven with something like AvP: Requiem for a shining example of how hard it is to pull off effectively. And contrast is the word. Seven »

Despite the mishap that saw this year’s Oscar ceremony end with the temporary announcement of the incorrect best picture winner, Michael De Luca, one of the producers of the 2017 Academy Awards, is looking forward to returning to the gig next year.

“We did the 89th Oscars as an audition for the 90th,” De Luca acknowledged in his keynote conversation that closed out the Variety Entertainment and Technology Summit Tuesday. “Our sights were really set on that anniversary show,” he said of himself and his producing partner, Jennifer Todd.

He added that he’d love this year’s host, Jimmy Kimmel, to return as well. “I don’t think there’s a deal in place with Kimmel, but I think he wants to come back and we would desperately love for him to come back,” De Luca said. “He was an excellent host. Jimmy agreed to be in every segment »

Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” has its greenlight. The $100-million gangster movie Netflix acquired earlier this year will start production in August, according to sources connected to the production.

The Best Opening Credit Sequences In Movie History — IndieWire Critics Survey

8 May 2017 1:41 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Inspired by Baby Groot’s “Mr. Blue Sky” dance sequence at the beginning of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” what movie has the best opening credits sequence?

April Wolfe (@awolfeful), La Weekly

Hands down, it’s R.W. Fassbinder’s “The Marriage of Maria Braun.” I watch the opening sequence at least three times a year and show it to every filmmaker I can. I love any film that begins with a bang, and this one does quite literally: We open up on an explosion that rips out a hunk of brick wall, exposing a German couple in the middle of a rushed marriage ceremony. »

American Gods Season 1 Episode 1 Review – ‘The Bone Orchard’

3 May 2017 12:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the first episode of American Gods

American Gods has a petulant swagger, hunkering self-assurance and arrogance backed up by a conceited faith in its source material. From the opening frame to a jaw dropping closing salvo ‘The Bone Orchard’ delivers on visual panache, audacious invention, hard R rated sexual congress and violence at once poetic yet savagely close and personal. There are so many tricks up the collective sleeves of Messrs Bryan Fuller and company it will make your head spin. Starting from left field and coming out of the gate like Vikings, American Gods takes the plethora of interweaving storylines which make up Neil Gaiman’s Magnus Opus and bombards you relentlessly.

Dreamscapes of breathing branches, bison with eyes of flame and sex scenes which feel orgasmic, sultry, dirty and visually destroy anything Thrones ever tried, are just a few of the things in store. Beyond the picture palette, »

Madonna Biopic ‘Blonde Ambition’ in the Works at Universal

24 April 2017 4:28 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal is developing Madonna biopic “Blonde Ambition,” picking up rights to Elyse Hollander’s “Blonde Ambition” screenplay about Madonna’s first album.

“Blonde Ambition” led the 2016 version of the Black List — an annual ranking of the best unproduced screenplays in Hollywood. Hollander’s script received 49 votes among the 250 executives voting. The project details Madonna’s efforts in the early 1980s in New York City to get her first album released while navigating fame, romance, and the dismissive attitude of the music industry at the time.

“Blonde Ambition” is set up with Brett Ratner’s Ratpac and Michael De Luca. John Zaozirny of Bellevue Productions will also produce.

Madonna broke out in 1983 on her first album, “Madonna,” followed by 1984’s blockbuster “Like a Virgin.”

It’s the first script sale for Hollander, who has worked as an assistant to Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.

Chris Pratt Proves Nice Guys Finish First as He Receives Walk of Fame Star

21 April 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Years ago, Chris Pratt went in for a commercial audition that didn’t go so well. “I introduced myself and he looked up at me and said, ‘Do you think you’re attractive?’” Pratt recalls. “I said, ‘I don’t know.’ He said, ‘Thank you.’ And that was it.”

Pratt can laugh now, as “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Jurassic World” have turned him into one of the world’s most bankable action stars and sex symbols. And through it all, Pratt still manages to keep his reputation as one of the nicest guys in the business.

“I had good parents that raised me right,” he says, when asked how he keeps a clear head in the business. “And maybe it had something to do with the fact I’m 37 and moved here when I was 20, and in those 17 years saw the benefits and cost of being an a—— play »

Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin in talks with Marvel and DC

31 March 2017 10:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and DC Extended Universe could be looking to add some Oscar-winning screenwriter talent, with Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) revealing that he’s set to meet with both Marvel Studios and DC Films about potential projects.

“I happen to have meetings coming up with both DC and Marvel,” Sorkin told Comic Book. “I have to go into these meetings and tell them as respectfully as I can that I’ve never read a comic book. It’s not that I don’t like them. It’s just that I’ve never been exposed to one. So, I’m hoping that somewhere in their library is a comic book character that I’m gonna love and I’m gonna wanna go back and start reading from the first issue on.”

Presumably he’d be talking to Marvel Studios about an as-yet-unannounced Phase Four film, »
