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’ Star Shares Evocative New Look at Stephen King Adaptation

21 August 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Traveller, beyond lies Mid-World.” If you’re already familiar with Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower,” there’s a good chance these words will have you even more excited for next year’s film adaptation of the endlessly prolific author’s eight-book series than you already are. Tom Taylor, the young actor who plays Jake, tweeted out a new image from the film accompanied by that line.

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. »

'The Dark Tower': Stephen King Reveals Why The Film Isn't A Straight Adaptation Of The Book

19 May 2016 7:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Production is underway for the film adaptation of Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" series with co-stars Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey at the helm. Though the film won't see the light of day until 2017, King has recently revealed in a podcast with EW that the film will not be a straight adaptation of the book. He says that the film "starts sort of in media res, in the middle of the story instead of beginning, which may upset some of the fans a little bit," but he's also confident that they "will get behind it, because it is the story."

Stephen King Discusses The In-Production Adaptation Of The Dark Tower

18 May 2016 11:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The thing about Stephen King is that he has a very devoted readership. Not unlike fans of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books, Stephen King’s audiences know his stories inside-out and, as a result, scrutinise every screen adaptation. It is not surprising, then, that Stephen King himself has been discussing the upcoming film version of The Dark Tower – seemingly to try to manage expectations.

Talking to Anthony Breznican on Sirius Xm’s Behind The Scenes With Anthony Breznican, Stephen King emphasised the fact that the chronology of the story may be a little different from the book.

“I expect that the movie will start where the books start. Y’know, ‘The man in black fled across the desert, and the Gunslinger followed.’ I think that nails it right in place for people… I’ve been pretty insistent on that, and I think everyone’s onboard with it.

“It starts sort of in medias res, »

Idris Elba as the Gunslinger Revealed in The Dark Tower

16 May 2016 1:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During Sony Pictures' CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas last month, it was revealed that production has finally began on the studio's long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower, which is set for release on February 17, 2017. We haven't heard any updates on the project since then, but today we have the first photos from the South Africa set, which offer our first look at Idris Elba in costume as The Gunslinger, Roland Deschain. Unfortunately, we don't get to see any of the actor's co-stars in these photos, but hopefully we'll get to see the rest of the cast in action quite soon.

These photos from The Daily Mail show the actor wearing a belt with two holsters on each side, along with numerous rounds of ammo affixed to the belt, as he walks to the set. Another photo shows the actor wearing a trench coat while standing in front of a large green screen, »
