Cinelou Sets Jacob Tremblay’s ‘Burn Your Maps’ for February Release (Exclusive)

1 December 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cinelou Films has set an Oscar weekend release date of Feb. 24 for its Vera Farmiga-Jacob Tremblay comedy-drama “Burn Your Maps,” Variety has learned exclusively.

The film, directed by Jordan Roberts, centers on an American 8-year-old who declares to his parents that he is actually a Mongolian goat herder born in the wrong place. When he meets a similarly displaced Indian filmmaker, they journey east, seeking what they believe to be their true place in the world.

“It’s the same kind of quirky story as ‘Little Miss Sunshine,’ and we think mature audience will respond — particularly with an opening on the Oscar weekend,” said Mark Canton, who founded Cinelou in 2014 with Courtney Solomon.

Burn Your Maps” is the fifth title from Cinelou, founded as a prestige label specializing in character-driven adult-targeted movies in the $10 million range. Since then, it’s released Jennifer Aniston’s dark comedy “Cake” and »

Immortals 2 Not Off The Table At Relativity

16 November 2016 7:04 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Before Henry Cavill became the Man of Steel for Warner Bros., there was Immortals, a lavish fantasy drama that first released five years ago. In those intervening years, Relativity Media has continually dropped hints of its plans to push on with a sequel – not all that surprising, given the original 2011 hit pulled in $226 million worldwide – and the latest report from Screen Daily indicates that Immortals 2 may not be such a far-fetched idea after all.

In fact, it’s one of a number of embryonic follow-ups kicking around at Relativity, now that the company has teamed up with Storyoscopic Films to engineer “family films and branded features with global appeal.” Among that slate of sequels no one asked for are November Man 2, Act of Valor 2 and Earth to Echo 2.

Out of those prospective films, Immortals 2 appears to hold the most potential, and not just because it features Henry Cavill’s name on the masthead. »

15 November 2016 2:13 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Tarsem Singh‘s Immortals isn’t talked about much these days, but it was a decent hit in its time. With a worldwide box office total of $226 million, the 2011 fantasy actioner is still Relativity’s highest-grossing release to date. And now it’s headed where all successful films go these days — into sequel territory. Relativity Studios is […]

Relativity, Storyoscopic set $200m slate fund

14 November 2016 1:08 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Ryan Kavanaugh’s Relativity Studios and Storyoscopic Films on Monday announced a joint venture whereby Storyoscopic will produce and finance approximately five or more projects a year.

Films produced under the joint venture and backed by what a source said would be at least $200m in production funding will release internationally via Relativity’s network of output partners and go through Relativity Europa Distribution (Red) in the Us.

Relativity launched Red in 2010 after it acquired Overture Films from John Malone’s Liberty Media and four years later EuropaCorp came on board in a reported $130m deal to acquire a 50% stake.

The venture comes as Relativity shifts its focus towards financing, producing and distributing family films and branded features with global appeal.

George Lee and Marcus Englefield, the duo behind 2D-to-3D conversion specialists Venture 3D, have worked with Hollywood and Chinese partners and launched Storyoscopic in 2013 to make family and genre films in the $15-50m range »

Exclusive: Alain Moussi Talks Kickboxer: Vengeance

2 September 2016 8:04 AM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

Back in the '80s, I use to love those action-packed martial arts films that created icons out of Bruce Lee, Jackie ChanSho Kosugi, and Jean-Claude Van Damme. One of the films that I remembered back in the days was Kickboxer, which starred a young Jean-Claude Van Damme, and was surprised that they would be making a remake of the film tilted Kickboxer: Vengeance, which would feature the return of Jcvd to the franchise.

Kickboxer: Vengeance stars martial artist and stuntman Alain Moussi, and he has some big shoes to fill as he is playing the role that once belonged to Jcvd. An update to the 1989 classic film KickboxerKickboxer: Vengeance follows the story of Kurt Sloane (Alain Moussi), who travels to Thailand to avenge the death of his brother at the hands of Tong Po (Dave Bautista). Kurt trains with the legendary Master Durand (Jean-Claude Van Damme) until »

12 expensive and eccentric modern Hollywood movies

25 July 2016 8:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 26, 2016

They cost millions and they’re very, very odd. We take a look at 12 expensive and eccentric Hollywood films from the past 40 years...

The risk-averse nature of filmmaking means that the world’s more maverick and outrageous writers and directors have to make do with relatively low budgets. Nicolas Winding Refn drenched the screen in all kinds of sordid, violent and startling imagery in such films as Only God Forgives and this year’s The Neon Demon, but the combined budget of those probably didn’t even match the catering budget for something like Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

Every so often, though, a truly bonkers film slips through the Hollywood studio system - often by accident. From horror sequels to original sci-fi adventures, here are 12 incredibly expensive and gloriously eccentric Hollywood movies from the past 40 years.

The Exorcist II (1977)

Budget: $14 million

Pinto Scores Lead In "Guerrilla" Mini-Series

28 June 2016 8:04 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Slumdog Millionaire" and "Immortals" actress Freida Pinto has scored the female lead role in Showtime and Sky Atlantic's six-part mini-series "Guerrilla" which is being produced by Green Door Pictures, Fifty Fathoms, ABC Signature and Stearns Castle.

Idris Elba and "12 Years a Slave" scribe John Ridley serve as executive producers on the story about a politically active couple whose relationship is tested when they liberate a charismatic political prisoner and form a radical underground cell in 1970s London.

Their ultimate target becomes the Black Power Desk, a true-life, secretive counter-intelligence unit within Special Branch dedicated to crushing all forms of black activism. Pinto will play the wife of the couple, the husband has yet to be cast. Elba has a supporting role in the production, though details of it have yet to be revealed.

Ridley will write the majority of the episodes and direct the first two, while Sam Miller »

Gods Of Egypt review

17 June 2016 8:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Gerard Butler shouts and transforms into a robot in Alex Proyas’ fantasy Gods Of Egypt. Ryan reviews a screamingly odd film...

Ancient Egypt - a land of pyramids, colossal statues and unconvincing scorpions. Did you know that, in the time of the pharoahs, gods lived among ordinary mortals and could transform into huge, fire-spouting robots? Director Alex ProyasGods Of Egypt may have been demolished by critics when it appeared in the Us earlier this year, but it’s certainly educational.

Proyas previously brought us such dark and moody delights as The Crow and Dark City, but Gods Of Egypt is completely unlike anything he’s made before. It’s big, it’s camp, it’s awash with CGI which varies in quality from shot to shot. In style and tone, it belongs in that same odd category of action fantasy films as Louis Leterrier’s Clash Of The Titans »

Death Note Movie Gets Straight Outta Compton Star

12 June 2016 7:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in April, Netflix picked up the rights to Death Note, after they expired while the project was at Warner Bros. This adaptation of the popular Japanese manga series is now moving forward, with Nat Wolff joining the cast in April. Now we have word of another casting addition, Keith Stanfield (Straight Outta Compton). No details were given for his character.

Almost exactly six years after Warner Bros. first acquired the rights to the manga comic Death Note, Warner Bros. hired director Adam Wingard (The Guest) to take the helm last April. We reported last year that director Gus Van Sant was attached to the project, which previously had Shane Black set to direct back in 2011. Jeremy Slater (The Lazarus Effect) wrote the most recent draft of the screenplay.

The plot, based on the original manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, follows a student who discovers a strange notebook, which allows him to kill anyone whose name he writes in it. The student decides to rid the world of all men and women he deems to be evil, while a police officer starts tracking him down, as the bodies keep piling up. The script had been previously worked on by Charley Parlapanides and Vlas Parlapanides (Immortals) and the writing team of Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry, before Jeremy Slater came on board.

Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Jason Hoffs and Masi Oka are producing, with Doug Davison and Brian Witten serving as executive producers. Adam Wingard's other directorial credits include A Horrible Way to Die, You're Next and segments of horror anthology films such as V/H/S, V/H/S/2 and The ABCs of Death. Netflix hasn't issued a release date at this time, so stay tuned.

Keith Stanfield made his feature acting debut in 2013's Short Term 12, and went on to star in The Purge: Anarchy, Selma, Dope and the blockbuster biopic Straight Outta Compton. He most recently starred in another biopic, Miles Ahead, and he will next be seen in Snowden and Memoria. We'll be sure to keep you posted with more on Death Note as we get closer to production starting this summer. »

‘Honor for Sale’ NYPD Scandal Movie in the Works (Exclusive)

10 May 2016 6:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

NYPD scandal drama “Honor for Sale” is in development by Atmosphere Entertainment and Cross Creek with “Triple Nine” director John Hillcoat attached, Variety has learned exclusively.

Producers are Mark Canton for Atmosphere and Brian Oliver for Cross Creek. Crystal City Entertainment is co-producing.

Producers have tapped Harrison Query to adapt the script, based on Gerald E. Kelly’s book “Honor for Sale: The Darkest Chapter in the History of New York’s Finest.” Kelly, a former police officer, recounts the years from 1969 to 1976 and the theft of 500 pounds of narcotics from the NYPD’s Property Clerk’s office — including some of the heroin seized during the famed “French Connection” case.

Kelly story focuses on a Special Investigations Unit detective who replaced suitcases of drugs with flour during various visits to the Property Room over three years and died under suspicious circumstances in 1972 as investigations into the Siu were getting underway. »

[Review] Gods of Egypt

26 February 2016 8:31 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s tempting to want to give too much credit to Alex ProyasGods of Egypt for sheer invention. Not since last year’s polarizing belly flop, Jupiter Ascending, has a blockbuster been so filled to the brim with intricate, nonsensical, transcendently stupid world building. Within the first twenty minutes, an amber-encrusted Egypt obsessed with pageantry and grand gestures becomes a fiery hellscape ruled by winged mechs with designs based on dense Egyptian mythology shooting laser beams at each other.

From there, the mythology keeps building an ornate, jeweled ladder to nowhere, throwing in every manner of insane set decoration, from immortal leviathans made of smoke to chariots led by gigantic scarabs to floating portals to nether realms. But while the film becomes a constant test to outdo itself, the raw ambition isn’t nearly enough to make up for the content of the actual film: an ungainly, ugly, nearly interminable monstrosity. »

Futuristic 'Robin Hood' Movie Happening with '300' Producers

1 February 2016 6:35 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After several years of delays, The Hollywood Gang production company is finally moving forward with Robin Hood 2058, which offers a futuristic take on the classic Robin Hood story. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the production company has brought on British writer Tony Lee to work on the script. Other writers who have worked on the project in the past include Jason Dean Hall (Paranoia) and Michael Ross (The Throwaways). Gianni Nunnari, known for his work on 300 and Immortals is producing with The Hollywood Gang.

The story is set in a futuristic, dystopian version of London, following a rogue MI5 agent on a mission to avenge injustice. The project's working title Robin Hood 2058 is believed to change at some point, but the site didn't reveal what the replacement title may be. Despite the massively different setting, writer Tony Lee revealed that he plans on staying faithful to the original source material. »

Robin Hood 2058: future 'reimagining' lands new writer

31 January 2016 9:28 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




A reimagining of Robin Hood, set 40 years in the future, is pressing ahead...

The latest in the string of adaptations-that-aren't-really-adaptations just got a scriptwriter with a background in comics. We're referring to the 'futuristic Robin Hood' project currently in development at The Hollywood Gang, the production house headed by 300 and Immortals producer Gianni Nunnari.

Tony Lee just signed onto to pen the script for the adaptation, one of several Robin Hood projects in various stages of development. This one, described as a Robin Hood reimagining, is said to be set in a 'dystopian London with a rogue MI5 agent on a mission to avenge injustice', according to The Hollywood Reporter.

With a working title of Robin Hood 2058, one can only imagine how loosely this adaptation might be based on the original tale of Robin Hood, Sherwood, and his Merry Men. However, Lee does seem a good man for the job, »

Relativity’s Emergence From Chapter 11 May Come Down to a Single Objection

28 January 2016 12:03 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The votes are in, and Ryan Kavanaugh's plan for the reorganization of Relativity Media has commanded a huge amount of "accept" votes from creditors. But don't count on the studio behind such films as Immortals, Limitless and The Fighter emerging from Chapter 11 bankruptcy just yet. Sure, some of Kavanaugh's recent antagonists including Cortland Capital and Manchester Securities have voted to accept the plan, as has the Directors Guild of America and the Screen Actors Guild, along with more than 85 percent of unsecured creditors. There are certainly notable objectors, too, including Nicholas Sparks Productions (which co-produced Relativity’s Safe Haven)
