The Dark Tower TV series announced, will adapt Wizard and Glass

21 September 2016 12:51 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coinciding with Stephen King’s 69th birthday today, Sony and Media Rights Capital – the production company behind the upcoming movie – have announced that the companion TV series to The Dark Tower is officially a go.

EW is reporting that Sony and Mrc have committed to financing a run of between 10 and 13 episodes for the series, which will delve into the backstory of Roland the Gunslinger, using the saga’s fourth book, Wizard and Glass, as its source.

Idris Elba will be reprising his role as Roland from the movie, as will Tom Taylor, who plays Jake Chambers, and will appear as part of a framing device bookending the central story about a younger Roland. The Man in Black will also appear, although they are yet to secure Matthew McConaughey, and another actor may potentially portray the character.

[Tiff Review] In the Blood

11 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If forty’s the new thirty, twenty-three can easily become the new thirteen. I think first-time director Rasmus Heisterberg would agree as the man behind screenplays for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Swedish) and A Royal Affair delves into a med student’s coming-of-age drama in In the Blood. What’s often reserved for younger children moving towards adolescence, eighteen at the oldest shifting from high school to college, the genre truthfully fits any period in one’s life if his/her maturity hasn’t quite sunk in. I know a few forty-year olds who could do with a bit of growing up — some people simply haven’t had to leave that alcohol-drenched bachelor pad lifestyle behind. When success comes easy like with Simon (Kristoffer Bech), responsibility can often be pushed aside until too late.

This is practically the young man’s mantra and actually one of the first »

6 September 2016 5:49 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ron Howard on bringing Stephen King’s The Dark Tower to the screen

6 September 2016 3:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After spending years developing the project, producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer are now less than half a year away from realising their dream of bringing Stephen King’s The Dark Tower to the big screen. However, as we’ve seen and heard, director Nikolaj Arcel’s film is not going to be a direct adaptation of King’s fantasy epic, but rather a sequel of sorts, and Howard has been speaking to Deadline about how they have went about crafting their take on the source material.

“We started talking about what it could be,” states Howard. “I read all the novels and we broke them down. He [Akiva Goldsman] presented this idea to Stephen King, and this is insider material you might not get, but it was about introducing the Horn of Eld into the very first story. He knew it would allow us to use elements of the novels in »

The Light Between Oceans – Review

1 September 2016 8:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The lushly beautiful The Light Between Oceans is a three-hankie historic drama set on the coast of Western Australia. With heart-tugging performances by an attractive trio of Oscar nominees (with two winners), Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander and Rachel Weisz, the film is an adaptation of M. I. Stedman’s 2012 bestseller of the same name. The tale set in a remote corner of the world, in the years after the devastation of World War I, which nearly wiped out a generation of young men in Europe and left those who survived scarred by this most brutal of wars.

Derek Cianfrance, whose previous films include Blue Valentine and The Place Beyond The Pines, both wrote the script and directs, and it is hard to imagine a more perfect director for this moody historic tale of moral choice. The title refers to the story’s setting, a remote lighthouse in Western Australia, at »

Why Derek Cianfrance Sees ‘The Light Between Oceans’ as a Companion Piece to His ‘Blue Valentine’

30 August 2016 11:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Derek Cianfrance knows a thing or two about heartbreak. The “Blue Valentine” and “The Place Beyond the Pines” helmer is best known for making gut-punch features that turn electric love stories into elegies (and sometimes even eulogies) on the meaning of commitment and family, so it’s no surprise that his latest feature — distributed by Walt Disney and their DreamWorks, and thus his first real studio film — explores those same themes, albeit on a much bigger scale.

For his first film since 2012’s “Pines,” Cianfrance has taken on M.L. Stedman’s best-selling novel “The Light Between Oceans,” a tearjerker that rarely lets up on an emotionally wrenching story. Cianfrance adapted the novel himself, which follows a Wwi vet (played by Michael Fassbender) as he attempts to find some much-deserved peace and quiet when he takes a job tending a lone lighthouse on a secluded island off the coast of Australia. »

The Dark Tower: Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey on the movie

14 July 2016 12:15 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

John Saavedra Jul 15, 2016

The stars of The Dark Tower, Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, talk about Roland and the Man in Black.

The Dark Tower movie, based on Stephen King's series of fantasy/horror novels, has been filming in South Africa and New York City for the past few weeks. The series, once thought to be impossible to adapt, will be ushered onto the big screen by director Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair), stars Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, and King himself. To say that this long-gestating adaptation is under a lot of fan scrutiny is an understatement.

Elba and McConaughey took some time off from shooting to talk to EW about their characters and what to expect from the film. As was already confirmed by King and Arcel before shooting even began, the movie will remix the events of the books and begin in media res.

First official images of Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey in The Dark Tower

14 July 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve seen a few spy photos from the set of The Dark Tower over the past couple of weeks [see here, here and here], but now thanks to Entertainment Weekly we’ve got our first official look at Idris Elba’s Roland Deschain and Matthew McConaughey’s Man in Black from the hotly-anticipated adaptation of Stephen King’s fantasy epic The Dark Tower. Take a look…

“When we meet Roland he’s a bit lost,” states Elba with regards to his role as The Gunslinger. “He’s been walking around for a long time, so he definitely feels like a man who’s… coiled. [He] has forgotten the face of his father. That’s a sense of, ‘You’ve forgotten your purpose.’ Until he meets [Jake Chambers], he doesn’t have anything to believe in, really. He’s really pent up and releases his soul through [defending] the boy.”

“Well, he is a man, actually,” replies McConaughey when asked about his villainous character, »

New Image from The Dark Tower Bows to Matthew McConaughey’s The Man in Black

14 July 2016 10:28 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Following the recent official reveal of Idris Elba as The Gunslinger, EW has now unveiled a new photo of the person he pursues: Matthew McConaughey’s Man in Black, aka Walter.

EW‘s photo shows The Man in Black strolling towards New York City’s Dixie Pig, a place where outsiders of the world—including sorcerers—congregate. Walter, who is also known as Randall Flagg from The Stand, is respected and feared by the crowd, who bow their heads as he passes by.

McConaughey tells EW that Walter is in search of Jake, a boy with the ability to “Shine.” The Man in Black hopes to exploit this power in order to destroy the Tower and bring about a collision of worlds and the rise of his master, the Crimson King. But Walter is squarely in the vengeful sights of The Gunslinger, who has a hateful history with the powerful being. »
