Meet the 2014 Tribeca Filmmakers #39: Brin Hill Chased Snow for 'In Your Eyes,' Written By Joss Whedon

7 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Writer-director Brin Hill is bringing his first feature since 2008 to Tribeca this year, after working as a writer on films like "Won't Back Down" and "Battle of the Year." Looking to Steven Soderbergh for inspiration and working with writer Joss Whedon ("The Avengers," "The Cabin in the Woods," and "Toy Story"), Hill is excited for the Tribeca audience reception of "In Your Eyes."  Tell us about yourself: I was a kid in Boston and a teenager in Santa Monica, from salty to sunshine, as if were. I’ve always been a filmmaker, but I’m also a recovering B-Boy and record digger, a decent two-guard who played college hoops, a creator of some cool branded entertainment, a teller of humorous stories about my seminal Little League experiences over a couple Jamesons, and a guy who nerds out on pulp and weird fiction. I’m excited for Tribeca audiences to see "In Your Eyes, »

'Spider-Man' Spin-Off 'Sinister Six' Won't Include Original Line-Up

15 April 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Amazing Spider-Man spin-off The Sinister Six is quickly building speed, with many fans excited to see this classic line-up of villains on the big screen. But even though The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is working hard to bring these guys together, which is a thread that will be carried over into The Amazing Spider-Man 3, don't expect to see the original comic book characters in the final movie.

Producers Matthew Tolmach and Avi Arad are promising the best 6 villains the Spider-Man universe has to offer, which means the debut incarnation of this bad guy gang may be changed or altered for the big screen. Tolmach explains,

"Nothing is sacred. I mean it's going to be the best Six that you can imagine, but it's going to make sense in the world that we're building."

What Is the Best Evil Object in a Horror Movie?

11 April 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

The Cabin in the Woods did a fine job of making fun of the whole evil-object concept by featuring a basement filled with occult jewelry and magic music boxes, etc. But the horror genre has to continue, and the subgroup in which an inanimate object is the killer remains among the hundreds of new scary movies each year.  This weekend, for instance, sees the release of Oculus, in which an ancient mirror seems to have caused the deaths of its owners for centuries, and the film's protagonists are likely next. Is it actually the mirror that does the killing? One thing about the items in The Cabin in the Woods is that they're all tied to something else, a homicidal family or a monster of some kind.

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2": "The Sinister Six" Movie Spin-Off

10 April 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to reports, Drew Goddard ("The Cabin In The Woods") will direct the first "Amazing Spider-Man 2" spin-off, based on classic Marvel Comics characters created by writer Stan Lee and illustrator Steve Ditko:

"Sinister Six", one of the first "Amazing Spider-Man" spinoffs, is based on a screenplay Goddard wrote featuring a team of super-villains, drawn from Spider-Man's list of enemies. The original incarnation of the group was organized by 'Doctor Octopus' and first appeared in "The Amazing Spider-Man Annual" #1 (January 1964).

Doctor Octopus contacts every known enemy of 'Spider-Man', but only 'Vulture', 'Electro', 'Kraven the Hunter', 'Mysterio' and 'Sandman' respond. Knowing he'd never be able to keep the team together for long, Doctor Octopus quickly formulates a battle plan in which each individual member of the 'Sinister Six' would battle Spider-Man in a carefully chosen location.

Drew Goddard Departs Sci-Fi Film The Martian; Matt Damon Courted to Star

9 April 2014 1:47 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A couple of days ago, we learned that The Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard has closed his deal to direct Sony’s Spider-Man spinoff film The Sinister Six.  However, it appears that his busy schedule has subsequently forced Goddard to back out of a different project.  The Wrap reports that Goddard has exited 20th Century Fox’s sci-fi film The Martian, which he signed on to last year.  With his impending schedule, Fox wasn’t keen to wait on the filmmaker to move forward on the project.  Not only is Goddard writing and directing Sinister Six, but he’s first running and directing Marvel’s Daredevil Netflix series, so he wouldn’t be able to move his focus back to The Martian for quite some time. Hit the jump for more, including the potential involvement of Matt Damon. With Goddard officially off the film, 20th Century Fox is »

Horror Movies: Is April the New October?

9 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The calendar may say it's springtime, with Passover and Easter around the corner, but at movie theaters, it's more like Halloween.

As many as seven horror films are opening this month, including "Afflicted," "Oculus," horror spoof "A Haunted House 2," and "The Quiet Ones." There are also the horror-themed sci-fi thrillers "Under the Skin" and "Transcendence." Even at the art house, there's a vampire movie, Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive."

Has April become the new October?

There are a number of possible reasons for the current pile-up of horror films, but it may not be a deliberate strategy on the part of the studios, according to box office experts.

"April is often a dumping ground for studios, which is probably why we're seeing a surplus of horror titles this year," says Jeff Bock, senior box office analyst at Exhibitor Relations. "Truth be told, it's also the calm before the summer storm, »

Drew Goddard Will Direct ‘Sinister Six’ As Sony Attempts to Out-Marvel Marvel

8 April 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

We’re one step closer to the inevitable fiery collapse of the comic book movie. Maybe. Sony, one of the four studios (count ‘em: Marvel, Sony, Fox, Warner Bros.) currently building an expanded comic book movie universe, has just put another piece into its gargantuan, multi-movie puzzle. That piece? Drew Goddard. Who, technically, had already been ensnared in Sony’s many-Spiderman’d web — he was announced as the writer of Sinister Six back when Sony first rolled out their cinematic Spidey-verse. But now there’s more, as Variety reports Goddard will be directing Sinister Six as well. Goddard’s first and only directorial effort was The Cabin in the Woods, a film that took typical slasher movie conventions, whisked them together with LSD and then laid them all out in a jumble (or something to that effect). Sinister Six is the first big superhero movie in the Big Superhero Movie era that doesn’t have any superheroes »

Drew Goddard, director of 'Sinister Six': An introduction

8 April 2014 12:39 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

So Drew Goddard is probably going to direct the Sinister Six movie, which is probably going to be released after Amazing Spider-Man 3, and which will probably star a lot of Spider-Man villains, at least one of whom will be less of a “villain” than an antihero who serves as the audience surrogate. (My money’s on Black Cat, but there’s always Sandman, the go-to not-really-evil villain for decades now.) Goddard was already announced as a member of Sony’s spin-off think thank, but if the news is not surprising, it’s still a bit unusual. Goddard’s sole »

The 'Sinister Six' Movie Has a Director Now

8 April 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Sony's "Amazing Spider-Man" spinoff "Sinister Six" has snared a director.

Deadline reports that Drew Goddard, who wrote and directed cult horror hit "The Cabin in the Woods," is in talks to helm the film, which is being planned as the springboard for an "Avengers"-style franchise focusing on the bad guys who terrorize the world of everyone's favorite web-slinger. The villains who make up the Sinister Six are Doctor Octopus, Electro, Kraven the Hunter, Mysterio, Sandman, and The Vulture, according to Deadline. (HitFix has a slightly different idea of the lineup.)

Goddard has reportedly already written the "Sinister Six" script, and just has to finalize a deal to direct. While there's no timeframe yet for when "Six" is expected to hit theaters, it will most likely make its debut after the bow of "Amazing Spider-Man 3," which is currently slated to open on June 10, 2016. A standalone Venom movie, directed by Alex Kurtzman, »

Drew Goddard to direct The Amazing Spider-Man spin off, The Sinister Six

8 April 2014 8:09 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

A couple of months ago, Sony and Columbia Pictures announced their plans to build a Spider-Man cinematic universe, akin to what Marvel Studios have pulled off, with ol' web head's villains getting their time in the spot light. The Sinister Six, a team up of Spidey's most fearsome foes, was one of those movies announced, sans director, with The Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard attached to write the script. Now the studio has revealed that Goddard will be pulling double duty on the project, having entered negotiations to step in as director. Nothing much is known about the project, which likely hit the big screen after The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in 2016, though don't be surprised if the team makes an appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which hits cinemas on this side of the pond on April 16th, and in the U.S. on the 2nd of May. »

Drew Goddard To Direct Spider-Man Villains Film 'Sinister Six'

8 April 2014 6:42 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

When “Cloverfield” screenwriter Drew Goddard was tapped last December to write the supervillain-center “Amazing Spider-Man” spin-off, “The Sinister Six,” for Sony it was with the understanding that the director’s chair was Goddard’s if he wanted it. Here we are four months later and the screenwriter-turned-director has made his decision. THR reports Goddard “is nearing a deal” with the studio to helm the spinoff, which would be his second feature-length directorial outing. A timetable for the film hasn’t been announced but it’ll likely arrive after Goddard delivers the pilot for the “Daredevil” series he’s writing for Sony’s comic-book rivals, Disney and Marvel, with the show to unspool on Netflix. By giving Goddard both writing and directing duties, the studio seems to be giving him a lot of leeway but will Goddard be able to bring some of the inventiveness that he displayed in his debut »

The Amazing Spider-Man: 10 Spidey Movies That Must Be Made Next

8 April 2014 6:39 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 heading into cinemas in the UK in just over a week, before a May 2nd kick-off in the States, not entirely unexpected news has arrived that Drew Goddard, the former writer of Lost and Buffy The Vampire Slayer, who made his directorial bow with The Cabin In The Woods, will duel writing of the Sinister Six spin-off with directing duties. That appointment – which was heavily hinted at when Goddard was announced as one of the five writers - along with Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner and Ed Solomon — who will collaborate on overseeing a unified Spider-Man narrative and tone across several films.

Naturally, with Marvel Studios doing so well with the two Phases of McU movies so far, Sony will be feeling the pressure to deliver on the Spider-Man property, in order to keep hold of the rights in a similar way »
