Back in September, Sony Pictures set up an Untitled Evel Knievel Biopic with Channing Tatum attached to star and Darren Aronofsky eyed to direct. The project fell apart after Darren Aronofsky backed away to direct an untitled indie movie which has Jennifer Lawrence attached to star. Today, Deadline reports that Paramount is moving forward with an adaptation of Sheldon Saltman's book Evel Knievel on Tour, with William Monahan (The Departed) signing on to write the adapted screenplay. The studio hopes to reunite the screenwriter with director Martin Scorsese, but nothing is set in stone at this point.
The 1977 book Evel Knievel on Tour will be used as a resource for this biopic, but it isn't known exactly how faithful this adaptation will be. The book covers Evel Knievel's infamous 1974 attempt to jump the Snake River Canyon in a steam-powered rocket known as the Skycycle X-2, which failed. Author Sheldon »
Paramount will release Academy Award-nominated director Michael Mann’s (Heat, The Insider, Collateral) Enzo Ferrari, starring Academy Award-winner Christian Bale (Dark Knight Trilogy, The Fighter, American Hustle) as Ferrari.
It takes place in one pivotal year, 1957. It is the personal story of a passionate man and his sprawling world, at times hilarious and at the next moment devastating, as he faces a brutal challenge to his survival.
Vendian Entertainment and YooZoo Bliss Film Fund have come on to finance the heavily-anticipated project, which will shoot next summer in Italy. Mann will produce along with Vendian and YooZoo Bliss. YooZoo Pictures also will distribute Enzo Ferrari in China. Vincent Maraval’s Insiders will commence international sales on selected territories at next month’s American Film Market.

Stormtroopers deal with 'Boycott Star Wars: Episode VII' Twitter 'controversy.' The “Boycott 'Star Wars: Episode VII'” media idiocy The “Boycott Stars Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens” hashtag, concisely named #BoycottStarWarsVII, was trending earlier today (Oct. 19, '15) on Twitter. Shocked? If so, you haven't spent much time on that social media platform, where all sorts of idiotic hashtags and topics trend continuously. Absolutely no one in their right mind should – or would – take this sort of stuff seriously. Unless, of course, Twitter's trending topics and hashtags can be used as clickbait “news.” And that's what we have with the “Boycott Stars Wars: Episode VII” nonsense. Manipulating the eager to be manipulated 'news' media Numerous publications online, from the more serious-minded Salon and the Los Angeles Times to The Hollywood Reporter and The Mary Sue have devoted time and space to “discuss” the Twitter trolls (“twolls,” for »

• Skarsgård: ‘I’ve turned down every other cop show’
Spoiler alert: this recap contains details about the first episode of River, showing on BBC1 on Tuesday nights.
So when did you realise the important fact about Nicola Walker’s character, Stevie? Ok, it’s been done before in everything from Dead Man’s Shoes to Edge of Darkness to Drop Dead Fred, but making one of this country’s best television actors, essentially, an imaginary friend is an audacious move by Abi Morgan.

Read More :Oscar Buzz: Who's Looking Good In The Original & Adapted Screenplay Races? The BAFTA BFI Screenswriter's Series continued on Friday evening with Andrew Bovell. Known in the industry as a "screenwriter's screenwriter," the Australian playwright has penned novels such as "The Rain Stops Falling" and adaptations such as "Lantana," "Strictly Ballroom," "The Secret River," "Edge of Darkness" and "A Most Wanted Man." Like Nicky Hornby, who kicked off the BFI Series two days prior, Bovell began the evening launching into a conversation with a point that most screenwriters can easily identify with: not being recognized. Bovell hilariously told the audience how he goes through a dilemma everytime he travels by taxi: to lie or not to lie about his profession. He goes back and forth in his head if he should tell the truth, which will inevitably set the cabbie off into a "I've never heard of that one, »

Things have been quiet on the Resident Evil: The Final Chapter front ever since stuntwoman/actress Olivia Jackson was badly injured on set. Shooting seems to be back up and running at full pace now. And today, Deadline has announced five new cast additions. Though, at this time, it isn't known how many more actors may be coming aboard.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is currently shooting in South Africa. The crew on-location welcome franchise newcomers Ruby Rose, Eoin Macken and William Levy. Returning from previous installments are Iain Glen, who played Dr. Isaacs in 2004's Resident Evil: Apocalypse and 2007's Resident Evil: Extinction, and Shawn Roberts, who played Albert Wesker in 2010's Resident Evil: Afterlife and the previous installment, 2012's Resident Evil: Retribution. They join franchise mainstay Milla Jovovich, who reprises her iconic role as Alice. Also starring in the movie is Ali Larter as Claire Redfield.
It’s an exciting time to be a horror fan — rarely has the genre seen such a diversity of fare, from mega-hits like “The Conjuring” to indies like “You’re Next” (let alone the wealth of horror shows on TV), and barely a month goes by without the emergence of some bright new talent. The latest, it appears, could be Corin Hardy. Hotly tipped by Edgar Wright, among others, he’s come up through shorts and music videos for the likes of The Prodigy and Keane, before making his feature debut at Sundance this year with “The Hallow.” The film stars “Game Of Thrones”’ Joseph Mawle and Bojana Novakovic (“Edge Of Darkness”) as a young couple who move to the Irish countryside, only to find dark things in the woods. Mawle’s fellow Westeros inhabitant Michael McElhatton (Aka Roose Bolton) and Ben Wheatley fave Michael Smiley are also in the cast. »

At least the new season of True Detective is working for someone. Though it’s been raked over the coals by critics of late, the HBO crime drama is giving Vince Vaughn a chance to flex his dramatic muscles, and Mel Gibson has taken notice, enlisting the actor to star in his fact-based WWII story Hacksaw Ridge.
Garfield, fresh out of the Amazing Spider-Man franchise, will play Doss in the movie, which will chart the journey of the 307th Infantry, 77th Army Division, 1st Battalion, Company B as they train for war. The story first picks up in South Carolina as they learn basic survival skills before they’re deployed to Japan to fight in what will become the Battle of Okinawa. »

The next project for Jackie Chan is now in the works, with a new director officially attached. Deadline is reporting that Stx Entertainment is finalizing a deal with director Martin Campbell, who will be at the helm of an adaptation starring Jackie Chan. The film will be titled The Foreigner, adapted from Stephen Leather's novel The Chinaman, first published in 2008. Campbell last made Green Lantern but has been stuck in "movie prison" ever since, and is also responsible for Casino Royale, Edge of Darkness and Vertical Limit. Word is that they're aiming to start production this fall, with deals being finalized with everyone now. Here's the plot description from the book's listing on Amazon: The Chinaman understood death. Jungle-skilled, silent and lethal, he had killed for the Viet Cong and then for the Americans. He had watched helpless when his two eldest daughters had been raped and killed by Thai pirates. »

In 2008, if someone mentioned the name of actor Liam Neeson, chances are you immediately thought of him in one of two ways. It is likely that you automatically imagined the actor in his portrayals as historical figures – Oskar Schindler, Alfred Kinsey, Michael Collins – or of the gravitas he lent to franchises such as Star Wars and Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. However, that all changed with the release of Taken six winters ago. With his gruff heroics and thick voice, he became one of Hollywood’s most bankable action heroes. Not bad for a man who was 56 years old at the time.
Since Taken, Neeson’s star power has soared. As the biggest action stars of the previous generation (the Fords, Stallones and Schwarzeneggers) struggle to excite and entice audiences for a bloody time at the cinema, Neeson rose into one of the most in-charge (and in demand) action stars of the current era. »

After scripting thrillers like The Departed, Body of Lies and Edge of Darkness, in addition to making his directorial debut with London Boulevard, screenwriter William Monahan is back behind the camera for his sophomore effort, a new thriller called Mojave. The film was just announced as being part of the line-up at the Tribeca Film Festival next month, and with that news comes the first photos of the film with future Star Wars actor Oscar Isaac and Tron Legacy lead Garrett Hedlund. There's nothing too revealing, but Hedlund is sporting a new look, and the photos give off a pretty gritty, almost western vibe. Look now! Here's the first photos from William Monohan's Mojave (via The Playlist): Mojave is written and directed by William Monahan, director of London Boulevard and Oscar-winning screenwriter of Martin Scorsese's The Departed, Edge of Darkness and Body of Lies.

I could never claim that I was driven to switch from television screenwriting to writing novels by the limitations of the TV storytelling palette. After all, we live in the era of the trinity of Davids – Chase, Simon and Milch – and their titanic achievements (The Sopranos, The Wire, Deadwood). That said, although this level of excellence is attainable, few apart from the Us cable showrunners are allowed to reach for it. This wasn’t always the case, but I sadly doubt a contemporary Edge of Darkness would feature an extended dialogue-free scene where a father slowly explores the contents of his murdered daughter’s room, finds a Geiger counter and a gun, »
