Ben Mendelsohn Rumored For A Role In ‘Star Wars: Rogue One’

25 March 2015 5:20 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

How much do we know about “Star Wars: Rogue One”? Well, not that much, and none of the rumors have been confirmed. We know it’s a “Star Wars” spin-off film, we know “Godzilla” director Gareth Edwards is helming, Felicity Jones (“Theory Of Everything”) stars and Chris Weitz ("Twilight: New Moon") and Gary Whitta have the main writing credits. Everything else — rumors of a bounty hunter movie centered around stealing plans to build the Death Star — are pretty much just conjecture at this point. But Deadline brings an interesting casting bit to light tonight. Ben Mendelsohn might be joining the cast. That’s all they got, but it’s intriguing because Ben Mendelsohn makes everything better. That should be a Hollywood axiom and while it’s not quite yet, in the circles of some of our greatest working filmmakers and actors it is. Mendelsohn’s been tapped by Christopher Nolan »

'Star Wars: Rogue One' Gets 'Godzilla' Composer Alexandre Desplat

16 March 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While John Williams is confirmed to score the soundtrack for this December's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it seems the idea of also taking on a number of standalone films set outside the main saga was too much to ask. Instead, director Gareth Edwards has turned to a familiar collaborator for his upcoming Star Wars standalone movie. Alexandre Desplat is now confirmed to score Rogue One.

Alexandre Desplat revealed the news himself with Radio Classique's Culture Club. He just won the Oscar for scoring The Grand Budapest Hotel for Wes Anderson. This past summer, he also composed the music for Gareth Edwards's Godzilla. That film saw him incorporating Akira Ifukeube's iconic 1954 Godzilla theme, so it makes sense that he would come aboard to provide a soundtrack that will also demand some of the original John Williams music be used. Though, no further details about his plans have been unveiled at this time. »

Desplat To Score "Star Wars: Rogue One"

16 March 2015 5:34 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Composer Alexandre Desplat, who has just come off an Oscar win for "The Grand Budapest Hotel," has been hired to do the score for Disney and Lucasfilm's "Star Wars: Rogue One".

Desplat previously worked with the film's director Gareth Edwards on last year's "Godzilla". 'Rogue One' is the first "Star Wars" standalone spin-off film that Disney is putting into production ahead of a December 16th 2016 release. It will begin shooting this Summer.

Desplat is no stranger to major franchises or awards films, having done the scores for the likes of "Argo," "Unbroken," "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," ""The Twilight Saga: New Moon," "The King's Speech," "Zero Dark Thirty," "The Imitation Game," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "The Queen," "A Prophet," and "Syriana".

'American Ultra' Stars Stewart and Eisenberg Reportedly Join Allen's Next Film Project

9 March 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

American Ultra stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg will be reunited later this year in another project: Woody Allen's next as yet untitled feature. Bruce Willis is the third cast member whose name has been publicly announced. The source for this information is an "exclusive" report via's Mike Fleming Jr. So far, as Fleming explains in his brief piece, Woody Allen and "his people" haven't confirmed the casting. In other words, things could change in the not-too-distant future. See also: Kristen Stewart Joins Kelly Reichardt Movie Project, also featuring Laura Dern and Michelle Williams. Unsurprisingly, no plot details about the upcoming Woody Allen project have been forthcoming. In fact, one wonders if Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, and Bruce Willis – in case they have indeed joined the fold – know what the movie is going to be about. Allen's latest collaborators – Letty Aronson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson – will be producing the film. »

No Marvel at 2015 Comic-Con?

9 March 2015 7:34 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The San Diego Comic Con has become quite the interesting beast. I first attended the convention back in 2006, a time when you could actually cover the convention as a member of the press. You didn't have to wait in long lines just to sit in a giant convention hall and actually leave said convention hall to participate in interviews and then return to check out more teaser footage. The last time I attended Comic Con was back in 2009, when I had to get up around 4 Am to wait in line with a bunch of teen girls lining up to see the The Twilight Saga: New Moon panel just so I can see the Avatar footage. I felt defeated. It was a low point in my career here at RopeofSilicon and I haven't been back since. However, this isn't to say Comic Con doesn't have its place in this industry, but »

Chris Weitz Talks ‘Star Wars’ Standalone for the First Time: “Expect Everything”

2 March 2015 7:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

On paper, Chris Weitz might seem like an unlikely choice to write a Star Wars movie. As a director, he’s best at realistic fare like About A Boy and A Better Life. He’s done bigger fantasy too, like The Golden Compass and The Twilight Saga: New Moon, but those are based on books. Even his latest film, […]

11 Actors Who Had an Oscar-Nominated Movie & a Total Bomb Come Out at the Same Time

20 February 2015 8:32 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Not every movie can be a winner. And not every actor can be Meryl Streep.

Even Oscar nominees make bad movies and sometimes, in an unfortunate twist of fate and bad timing, that bomb, that dud, that total and complete flop, comes out at the same time as some of the best work of their life. Here are 11 times that happened in the past 10 years:

Focus Features

1. Eddie Redmayne (2015)

Nominated Role: The Theory of Everything. Redmayne is the Best Actor favorite this year for this biopic about Stephen Hawking navigating black holes and Als.

Losing Role: Jupiter Ascending. This totally effing bonkers Wachowski sci-fi flick came out just before Oscar voting started. And once you see Redmayne as Bowie-esque space prince Balem Abrasax, it cannot be unseen.

The Weinstein Company

2. Jennifer Lawrence (2013)

Winning Role: Silver Linings Playbook. Lawrence took home Best Actress for her turn as a trouble townie named Tiffany in this dark spin on a rom-com »

Fifty Shades of Grey set for $90 million+ Us opening; breaks studio opening day record in France

13 February 2015 9:23 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Released today across various different markets, including the UK, Us and many European countries, Fifty Shades of Grey has finally been unleashed after months of anticipation. And despite its opening being only a few hours old, the film has already broken box-office records.

The film, directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson and starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, took an estimated $3.7 million on Wednesday, which included $2.7 million in France, a record opening day for Universal Pictures, beating the previous record-holder Fast & Furious 6, not including inflation.

Fifty Shades of Grey is set to break many more records over the weekend, with its Us release set to be the biggest of all. Opening today in 3,645 North American cinemas, the most modest estimates for the film’s debut stand around $50 million, while others are suggesting that the tracking and early-ticket sales of the film will see it closer to the $80 million-$90 million, which will »

Forecast: 'Fifty Shades' to Dominate Valentine's Day Box Office

12 February 2015 4:49 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

Friday Am Update: Fifty Shades of Grey opened to an estimated $8.6 million from Thursday night shows at 2,830 locations. That's the biggest Thursday night ever for Universal ahead of Fast & Furious 6 ($6.5 million), and ranks second all-time for R-rated movies behind The Hangover Part II ($10.4 million).It's also in the same class as 2014 blockbusters like Transformers: Age of Extinction ($8.75 million), The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($8.7 million) and X-Men: Days of Future Past ($8.1 million). If it plays like those movies, it will wind up with around $100 million over its first four days. Of course, it could play like a Twilight movie and wind up around $50 million. It also remains to be seen what kind of impact a Saturday Valentine's Day has on the movie's weekend.Meanwhile, Kingsman: The Secret Service opened to $1.4 million at 2,569 locations. That's roughly on par with Taken 3's $1.5 million Thursday night haul last month. It now feels like »

9 soundtracks that outshone their movies: Tron Legacy, Twilight and more

12 February 2015 4:01 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

These days no movie can get away without a tie-in soundtrack. The latest is Fifty Shades of Grey, which brings together everyone from Beyoncé, Sia and Ellie Goulding.

However, there's always a danger that the album can outshine the movie it originates from. Digital Spy highlights 9 instances where this is the case.

1. Tron: Legacy (2010)

Disney's belated sequel to its cult '80s hit Tron unfortunately forgot to bother with anything approaching a coherent story or believable characters - but what a display of visuals and sound. Daft Punk took care of the latter, crafting a score that fizzed with electronic pulses ripped straight from The Grid.

2. The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009)

Despite being so critically derided, the Twilight movies were consistently able to churn out impressive soundtracks. The best of them was 2009's New Moon, which collected new songs from Thom Yorke, Death Cab for Cutie, Lykke Li, The Killers, »

Box Office: ‘Fifty Shades’ Eyes Valentine’s Day Weekend Record

11 February 2015 2:27 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fifty Shades of Grey” is about to bring sadomasochism into the mainstream when it cracks the whip on what is shaping up to be the biggest Valentine’s Day weekend release in history.

The adaptation of E.L. James’ kinky story about a college student and the brooding billionaire who introduces her to to pleasures of the cuff and the gag will heat up 3,645 North American theaters. It will dominate the competition to the tune of at least $50 million. At least that’s what Universal and Focus Features, the companies behind the erotic romance, are saying. Other analysts and rivals peg the debut in the $70 million-$80 million range.

If that figure holds, it will easily trump “Valentine’s Day,” the ensemble romantic comedy that made $63 million when it debuted in 2010, as the top-grossing Valentine’s weekend release and set a new benchmark for Presidents Day weekend debuts.

Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars Spinoff Gets A New Writer

27 January 2015 11:38 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It was revealed not too long that writer Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli) had left Gareth Edwards’ untitled Star Wars spinoff upon completion of the movie’s first draft. Various sites reported at the time that Simon Kinberg might be brought in as a replacement, but it is in fact Chris Weitz who has landed the job!

Even if the name isn’t familiar, his work should be.

The Academy Award nominated screenwriter’s writing credits include About A Boy and The Twilight Saga: New Moon. He also penned Kenneth Branagh’s (Thor) upcoming live-action remake of classic Disney fairytale Cinderella.

Weitz is also an author (he’s currently working on a new series of Ya novels) and director, and helmed the Oscar nominated A Better Life and The Golden Compass. That’s a varied and impressive CV to say the least!

It’s still not clear what this movie will focus on, »

'Star Wars' Spinoff Finds A New Writer

27 January 2015 8:01 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

A few weeks ago, we received word that Gary Whitta joined Michael Arndt on the "I used to be writing a Star Wars movie" unemployment line. He, like Arndt, was granted a gracious departure that both sides claimed was mutual and amicable. He turned in his first draft, and that was the end of that. The Gareth Edwards-directed Star Wars spinoff has been searching for a replacement ever since, with the particulars being unclear (Is it for a page one rewrite? Is it to punch-up Whitta's script?). According to The Hollywood Reporter, they found their man.

Chris Weitz is something of a multi-talent. He's written several films. He's also directed several. His resumé as a writer includes an eclectic mix of films like AntzAbout A Boy, Nutty Professor II,  The Golden Compass, and Disney's upcoming live-action Cinderella (which shows that the Mouse House didn't have to go too »

Chris Weitz Will Pen Star Wars Spinoff

27 January 2015 7:32 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following The Book of Eli scribe Gary Whitta’s departure from Godzilla director Gareth Edwards’ upcoming Star Wars spinoff, a new screenwriter has been recruited to explore the galaxy far, far away – About a Boy co-director/co-writer Chris Weitz (who received an Oscar nomination for his work on that screenplay).

Whitta left the untitled project after working on and completing a first draft over the course of a year, but it’s unclear how much of his vision for the spinoff will actually make it to theaters. The prolific Simon Kinberg was rumored to have replaced him as scribe, but it now appears that Weitz has been tapped to pick up the pen and take a swing at the Star Wars spinoff.

In addition to his work on About a Boy, Weitz is known for writing the upcoming Cinderella adaptation, directing and penning The Golden Compass, helming mega-blockbuster The Twilight Saga: New Moon »

Star Wars Stand-Alone Finds Its Next Writer

27 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Gareth Edwards' stand-alone Star Wars film has found its next writer. Now that Gary Whitta has had a go at it and moved on, it is now time for writer and director Chris Weitz to take a stab at a new draft. I will tell you what should be bothering me about this report from THR: It is all the Young Adult (Ya) references in it. Weitz has worked on a lot of Ya related projects. He directed The Golden Compass and The Twilight Saga: New Moon, and, according to the report, is smack in the middle of writing a Pa/Ya (Post Apocalyptic Young Adult) trilogy of books starting with The Young World. He also wrote Disney's upcoming Cinderalla. It should be bothering me about it...

27 January 2015 3:13 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Chris Weitz has signed up to write a Star Wars spinoff movie.

The Twilight: New Moon director has been chosen to replace Gary Whitta on the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Whitta exited the project after completing a draft script earlier this month.

As well as working on Twilight, Weitz also wrote the screenplay and co-directed 2002's About a Boy, and is currently working on Disney's live-action adaptation of Cinderella.

The currently untitled Star Wars spinoff movie will be directed by Godzilla's Gareth Edwards.

Current plans will see Disney release new Star Wars movies each year, alternating between Jj Abrams's sequels and spinoffs.

The first spinoff movie is due for release on December 16, 2016, a year after the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

George Lucas recently revealed that none of his ideas for future Star Wars episodes will be used by Disney.
