"Mama" Director To Helm King's "It" Films

16 July 2015 9:34 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Mama" helmer Andy Muschietti is reportedly in negotiations to direct the two-part film adaptation of the Stephen King classic "It" for New Line.

"True Detective" Season One and "Jane Eyre" helmer Cary Fukunaga penned the work and was set to direct the adaptation until he parted ways with the project back in late May over creative and budgetary differences.

Producers Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith and Jeffrey Katzenberg however didn't want to let the project languish and began the hunt for a new director quick.

Filming was to begin in June but a new start date is unclear. A new writer will be brought in to adjust the script for Muschietti's vision, but the plan is for the adaptation to still take place over two parts. Barbara Muschietti will likely produce.

The question still remains about the involvement of Will Poulter whom Fukunaga wanted for the role of Pennywise the Clown. »

Point/Counterpoint: Is 'True Detective' Season 2 Any Good? Why 'Bloodline' Is Better

14 July 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Matt Brennan: Why has “True Detective” seemed so flat this season, compared to Season 1? Four episodes in, I think it lacks the rich sense of place the cast and crew cultivated along the lower reaches of the Mississippi. Writer/creator Nic Pizzolatto, born in New Orleans—where I’ve lived since 2009—and raised in southwest Louisiana, knows this part of the country inside out. And director Cary Fukunaga, of the impressive, finely wrought “Jane Eyre,” had the chops and experience to bring the series’ bayou Gothic to life, even if the payoff didn't live up to the setup. Watching Season 2, by contrast, it's almost as if Pizzolatto's only knowledge of California is what he's seen in the movies. Which would be fine if the approach were as self-aware as, say, Rian Johnson's high-school neo-noir, “Brick.” Unfortunately, Season 2 is so self-serious that it’s become an unwitting parody. Read »

Comic-Con 2015: Salem Renewed for Third Season

12 July 2015 5:06 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Plenty of devious plans for future Salem episodes were discussed at the show's roundtables that Daily Dead took part in at Comic-Con, and now some of those ideas could move forward on the small screen, as Wgn America has officially renewed their witchcraft series for a third season.

Press Release: "The magic continues for Wgn America’s original, breakout hit series “Salem,” with the announcement made today at Comic-Con International: San Diego by the cast and creative team that the supernatural thriller has been renewed for a third season.  The captivating one-hour drama, from Fox 21 Television Studios and creators and writers Brannon Braga and Adam Simon, boldly reimagines the infamous 17th century witch trials in colonial Massachusetts in a world where witches are real, but they are not who or what they seem to be.  The third season will begin production in Shreveport, La later this year for a 2016 debut. »

Netflix has been doubling down on its original content this year, but since so much of the focus is on TV shows like Orange is the New Black and House of Cards, it's easy to forget that they're also expanding on the movie front, too.

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization."

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

Madame Bovary | Review

Good Time Gal: Barthes’ Sensible Remake of Flaubert’s Classic Novel

Few literary protagonists have reached the heights of notability as the infamous Madame Bovary, from the proto-feminist novel written by French author Gustave Flaubert in 1857. Examining the selfish and inevitably tragic actions of a discontented wife, the titular character is also rather hard to sympathize with considering a multitude of understandable yet frustrating actions. As many literary figures, she’s been resurrected for the big and small screen on multiple occasions over the decades, generally to troubled critical reception. Though Claude Chabrol’s 1991 adaptation is somewhat regarded as the definitive film version, this latest examination is the first to be directed by a woman, a detail being used as a selling point for tuning in. But even if you can ignore the fact that a notoriously bi-sexual French man originally penned the material inspiring this English language co-production, it »

Early Reviews: Manage Your Expectations for the Return of 'True Detective'

12 June 2015 7:34 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

After debuting in 2014 to critical acclaim (and the inevitable backlash), becoming enough of a cultural obsession to crash HBO Go during the season finale and disappoint those, myself included, who'd first defended it, the second season of "True Detective" (HBO) was always bound to face impossibly high expectations. It didn't help that writer and series creator Nic Pizzolatto came off preening and thin-skinned when The Hollywood Reporter profiled him last summer, dismissing trenchant criticism of the first season's tendency to deploy women's bodies as little more than set decoration and posing for oh-so-serious photos to accompany the story. He's had a target on his back ever since. More importantly, though, Cary Fukunaga—who treated the languid, overgrown landscapes of the Louisiana bayou with careful, creepy Gothic romanticism, as in his superb adaptation of "Jane Eyre"—has been replaced by the small cadre of directors more common to television, led by. »
