Fukunaga Gets Frank About "It" Departure

3 September 2015 7:32 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the saddest pieces of entertainment news to report this year was the departure of "True Detective: Season One" and "Jane Eyre" director Cary Fukunaga from the upcoming two-film adaptation of Stephen King's classic novel "It".

Fukunaga came onboard the project back in 2012 and penned the scripts with Chase Palmer. Originally starting at Warners, the films moved to New Line which is where the problems began. Fukunaga left the project earlier this year over what appeared to be budgetary concerns and creative differences.

In a lengthy piece for Variety, Fukunaga reveals that budget wasn't the issue as both sides agreed to make the two films for $32 million. The creative disagreements however were very much a problem. Here's the filmmaker's explanation:

"I was trying to make an unconventional horror film. It didn't fit into the algorithm of what they knew they could spend and make money back on based »

"Cary Fukunaga has handled projects as diverse as the migrant drama Sin Nombre, a Jane Eyre adaptation with Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender, and episodes of TV’s True Detective," begins the Guardian's Peter Bradshaw, declaring that Beasts of No Nation, starring Idris Elba, is "his best film yet. Fukunaga brings flair, muscular storytelling, directness and a persuasively epic sweep to this brutal, heartrending movie about child soldiers and a civil war in an imaginary West African country, based on the 2005 novel by Nigerian-American author Uzodinma Iweala."

Stephen King's It: why its director left the project

2 September 2015 10:32 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Cary Fukunaga had been set to direct two films of Stephen King's It before surprisingly leaving the project. So: what happened?

After being attached to the project for a good couple of years, it came as something of a surprise when director Cary Fukunaga suddenly departed the new two-film adaptation of Stephen King's It. Fukunaga, who has just helmed Netflix's first original feature film Beasts Of No Nation, was said to have left over "creative differences", with some sources suggesting the growing budget was to blame.

Yet chatting to Variety, Fukunaga has put his side of the story.

"I was trying to make an unconventional horror film. It didn’t fit into the algorithm of what they knew they could spend and make money back on based on not offending their standard genre audience", he explained.

"Our budget was perfectly fine. We were always hovering at the $32 million mark, which was their budget. »

Beasts of No Nation review – Idris Elba rules in Netflix's impressive move into movies

2 September 2015 3:56 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

True Detective’s Cary Fukunaga directs British star in the first competition film to screen at this year’s Venice film festival – and the first awards contender from Netflix’s new cinema division

Director Cary Fukunaga has handled projects as diverse as the migrant drama Sin Nombre, a Jane Eyre adaptation with Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender, and episodes of TV’s True Detective. This film, premiering at the Venice film festival, is his best film yet.

Fukunaga brings flair, muscular storytelling, directness and a persuasively epic sweep to this brutal, heartrending movie about child soldiers and a civil war in an imaginary West African country, based on the 2005 novel by Nigerian-American author Uzodinma Iweala.

Venice Film Review: ‘Beasts of No Nation’

2 September 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The unsentimental education of an African child soldier is captured with savage beauty and matter-of-fact horror in “Beasts of No Nation,” a tough-minded, tough-viewing chronicle of a civil war as seen through the eyes of one of its youngest casualties. Having moved with growing confidence from a slick Mexican gangland saga (“Sin nombre”) to a tony Victorian lit adaptation (“Jane Eyre”) to a crackerjack American crime serial (season one of “True Detective”), writer-director Cary Joji Fukunaga pulls off another chameleonlike turn with this artful, accomplished but not entirely sustained adaptation of Uzodinma Iweala’s 2005 debut novel, never quite finding an ideal cinematic equivalent for the singular spareness and ferocity of the author’s prose. By turns lucid and a bit logy, and undeniably overlong, it’s nevertheless the rare American movie to enter a distant land and emerge with a sense of lived-in human experience rather than a well-meaning Third World postcard. »

'Beasts of No Nation': Venice Review

2 September 2015 11:18 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

One of the many horrors of the modern world, that of child soldiers being coerced into violent combat roles by African warlords, is compellingly and convincingly dramatized in Cary Joji Fukunaga's Beasts of No Nation. The writer-director-cinematographer's two previous features also dealt with brutalizing rites of passage suffered by young people — Central Americans making their way through Mexico to the U.S. border in Sin Nombre, a 19th century English orphan girl's harsh life in Jane Eyre — but Beasts rates as the most disturbing of the three because of the way the pre-pubescent boy at its center is forced

Fukunaga Talks "True Detective" Season 2

1 September 2015 5:53 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

After making a name for himself first with "Sin Nombre" and then his well-received "Jane Eyre" adaptation, filmmaker Cary Fukunaga came to the attention of many when he directed all eight episodes of HBO's acclaimed first season of their detective anthology series "True Detective".

In the wake of that success, Fukunaga shot the Idris Elba-led child soldier drama "Beasts of No Nation" and was slated to helm a two-film adaptation of Stephen King's "It" before dropping out of that project over what he said the other week were simply creative differences.

Talking to Variety about 'Beasts', he was asked about the second season of HBO's "True Detective," a season which has come under much fire for the subsequent drop in quality. Fukunaga was listed as executive producer but admits it was more a name credit than anything:

"I really wasn't involved. My involvement in the second season was »

Idris Elba Plays A Brutal Warlord In Powerful New Posters For Netflix Original Film Beasts Of No Nation

19 August 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Having held the lion’s share of original TV content on streaming services for the longest time, Netflix is now beginning to make a push toward establishing itself as a prolific output for feature films, and spearheading the charge for the online giant is this year’s awards-tipped war drama, Beasts of No Nation.

Written and directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (True Detective, Jane Eyre), Netflix pushed long and hard to secure distribution rights for the film, ensuring that it qualified for a stint on the awards circuit later this year, too. And you can see why the company lobbied for the project.

The plot follows Idris Elba as a deadly warlord and Abraham Attah as a young boy from Western Africa whose life, along with scores of children just like him, is cruelly upended by a ferocious civil war. One thing’s for sure: Beasts »

The 'It' remake got very personal for director Cary Fukunaga. Here's why he left.

18 August 2015 5:13 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"True Detective" Season 1 director Cary Fukunaga departed the forthcoming re-adaptation of Stephen King's "It" in May for a variety of alleged reasons, and in a new interview with EW the filmmaker spoke out for the first time about why he decided to part ways with the project. While the "Jane Eyre" director didn't get specific (issues over budget, location and casting were rumored to play a role in his exit), the project was clearly a labor of love for the filmmaker, who did an extensive amount of work on the script with co-writer Chase Palmer. “It’s never easy,” Fukunaga told EW. “Chase and I had been working on that script for probably three years. There was a lot of our childhood and our experience in it. ...Ultimately, we and New Line have to agree on the kind of movie we want to make, and we just wanted to make different movies. »

Watch: 'Beasts of No Nation' Trailer from the Director of 'True Detective'

30 July 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As Netflix continues its bid to dip its toes into all film and television waters, one of their upcoming projects is Beasts of No Nation, the latest film from Cary Fukunaga (Sin Nombre, Jane Eyre, "True Detective") with Idris Elba in the lead role alongside newcomer Abraham Attah as Agu, a child soldier fighting in the civil war of an unnamed African country. Beasts of No Nation will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival, will then likely play Telluride and will finish up the circuit in Toronto after that, all before releasing in limited theaters and streaming on Netflix on Oct. 16. It's new territory for not only prestige cinema, but cinema altogether as television and the movies are coming together in ways previously thought unfathomable. Certainly some films will still stand to make the most money with major theatrical releases and it will be interesting to see »

Someone must make a choice in first trailer for ‘Beasts of No Nation’

30 July 2015 7:23 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The first trailer for the next feature film from director Cary Fukunaga was revealed on Thursday as Netflix offered the first look at Beasts of No Nation. The film is set to debut in theaters and on the streaming service.

Starring Idris Elba, Beasts of No Nation centers on a young African boy who is forced to become a child soldier in a rebel army, after his parents are killed, which is led by a brutal commandant played by Elba. The child is played by newcomer Abraham Attah.

Fukunaga caught everyone’s attention with True Detective, which he directed for every episode of the first season, but he has also debuted strong films such as Sin Nombre and Jane Eyre prior to this and it looks like he returns with a project that he has been wanting to make for awhile. It also features Elba, who has been doing great »

Watch: Idris Elba Leads Child Soldiers In The First Trailer For Cary Fukunaga’s ‘Beasts Of No Nation’

30 July 2015 7:09 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Cary Fukunaga burst onto the independent cinema scene in 2009 with his striking debut and immigration drama “Sin Nombre.” He’s made several celebrated films since and of course really cemented his auteur status by directing the entire first season of “True Detective.” But one of the first projects he announced after Focus Features and Universal signed him up for a big three picture deal in the wake of the critical “Sin Nombre” buzz was a little project called “Beasts Of No Nation,” based on the book by Nigerian-American author Uzodinma Iweala. The project was seemingly long forgotten after Fukunaga went on to make “Jane Eyre,” “True Detective,” and signed on for myriad other projects — many of which have come and gone like the adaptation of Stephen King’s “It” — but he swung back to the project last year with Idris Elba in the lead (and really the only star in »

"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

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. »
