The Notable Films of 2010: Part Seven

29 December 2009 7:16 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Mother and Child

Opens: 2010

Cast: Naomi Watts, Annette Bening, Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington

Director: Rodrigo Garcia

Summary: A tale of a mother and daughter, separated at birth, who struggle with the damage done by the most important person missing in their lives while a young African-Americn woman deals with an unwanted pregnancy and the adoption process.

Analysis: Scoring rave reviews in Toronto, the $7 million latest effort of Rodrigo Garcia ("Nine Lives," "Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her") once again shows off his skill at weaving multiple narratives together in clever and unexpected ways. At its heart it's an emotional family drama, but Garcia excels with his female characters which makes the involvement of Naomi Watts, Kerry Washington and especially Annette Benning thrilling.

The few criticisms levelled at the film were toward some pacing and credibility issues in the last act, but otherwise praised it for not »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Six

27 December 2009 10:09 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Last Airbender

Opens: July 2nd 2010

Cast: Noah Ringer, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, Dev Patel

Director: M. Night Shyamalan

Summary: A live-action film based on the Nickelodeon animated TV series. In a fantastic world where civilisation exists as four great empires, a reluctant young child sets out on a perilous journey to restore balance to a world torn apart by war.

Analysis: It has been quite the decade for M. Night Shyamalan, who started it as a household name with the label of a modern-day Hitchcock thanks to the likes of "The Sixth Sense" and "Signs". Today he's considered more of a one-trick pony and in some cases a punchline due to rampant stories of egomania run wild and a series of much derided onscreen flops like "Lady in the Water" and "The Happening".

Thus 'Airbender' marks a potential return to form for the helmer. An adaptation of the hit »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Five

23 December 2009 10:10 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Hippie Hippie Shake

Opens: 2010

Cast: Cillian Murphy, Sienna Miller, Max Minghella, Emma Booth, Lee Ingleby

Director: Beeban Kidron

Summary: Follows the love story of Oz editor Richard Neville and Louise Ferrier. Neville and his cohorts launch the London edition of Oz amidst the 1960s counterculture and are subsequently put on trial for distributing a sexually explicit issue.

Analysis: One of the most troubled productions in Working Title's history, 'Hippie' began development back in 1998 but failed to get beyond script stage both in 1999 and in 2002 when "Elizabeth" helmer Shekhar Kapur was attached to direct. Filming finally got underway late 2007 with director Beeban Kidron in charge and shooting seemed to proceed without issue aside from feminist author Germaine Greer being vehemently unhappy about being depicted on film.

Actually the film scored quite a bit of free press for a skinny dipping scene where full-frontal shots of actress Sienna Miller shooting the sequence »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Four

19 December 2009 11:50 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Georgia

Opens: 2010

Cast: Val Kilmer, Andy Garcia, Rupert Friend, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Johnathon Schaech

Director: Renny Harlin

Summary: An American journalist, his cameraman, and a Georgian native get caught in the crossfire of the five-day Russia-Georgia conflict in August 2008, and then have to deal with their obligation to be impartial.

Analysis: A timely parable on war, or Hollywood propaganda filmmaking at its worst? Wherever it goes, especially in Europe and the former Soviet states, "Georgia" will cause a lot of talk and controversy as the incidents depicted are still so fresh in many's minds. Like all topics of the sort, it'll also have its strong supporters and detractors having opinions on the film long before a frame of footage is screened anywhere.

Shot on-location in Tbilisi, the project also marks a potential return to form for Finnish director Renny Harlin. Given the right material the skilled action director delivered three »

Warner Bros. Buys $2 Million Star Vehicle for Steve Carell

18 December 2009 10:47 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Variety reports that Warner Bros. is betting big on Steve Carell and Cars writer Dan Fogelman.  The studio has just paid $2 million against $2.5 million for an untitled spec script by Fogelman with the intention of having Steve Carell star in it.  Oddly enough, the film doesn’t sound like an expensive movie nor does it seem like it’s the kind of movie Carell typically stars in.  According to Variety, “Script has a tone comparable to ‘Love Actually.’ Carell will play a father whose life unravels while he deals with a marital crisis and tries to manage his relationship with his children.”  I guess WB really, really like Dan in Real Life.

Fogelman wrote the script specifically with Carell in mind but there’s only a 50-50 shot Carell will do the film during his hiatus from The Office.  The other film is one we reported on a couple days »

Warner Bros. Staying In The Steve Carell Business

18 December 2009 8:34 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Apparently Steve Carell can't leave the house without being offered a new movie project. Just yesterday we heard that he and Date Night co-star Tina Fey will likely reteam for the comedy Mail Order Groom, and now Warner Bros. has paid a tidy $2 million for a spec script written specifically for Carell. The news comes from Variety, the site with the impossible to navigate paywall, but here's what I can gather: Carell will play a father dealing with a marital crisis and trying to build a relationship with his children, all with a tone that's somehow similar to Love Actually. The film is a likely candidate for Carell's next project during hiatus from The Office next summer, with the Mail Order Groom also in there somewhere. Interestingly, this spec script means that Warner Bros. is postponing Get Smart 2 for the second year in a row, making it all the »

Warner Bros. Buys Steve Carell a Script

18 December 2009 6:59 AM, PST | ReelLoop.com | See recent Reel Loop news »

I wish I had enough sway in Hollywood that studios would seek out script rights just so that I could be put in the film. That’s what The Office star Steve Carell’s life is like, living the new American dream.

Warner Bros. has just picked up an untitled script by Cars writer Dan Fogelman for $2-2.5 million dollars, in what is being called the biggest spec script sale of the year. Fogelman has just hit the jackpot, it seems.

According to Variety, the film will have “a tone comparable to Love Actually. Carell will play a father whose life unravels while he deals with a marital crisis and tries to manage his relationship with his children.” I’m glad to see they’re taking the Little Miss Sunshine semi-serious route instead of goofy stuff that tempts talented actors like Carell away from their successful careers.

Tina Fey & Steve Carell Team Up for Mail-Order Groom

18 December 2009 4:20 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Steve Carell and Tina Fey are loosely attached to star in a new feature film called Mail-Order Groom. The pair will also be co-producing the movie through their respective production companies, Carousel Productions  and Little Stranger, Inc.

THR describes Mail-Order Groom as the story of a desperate and naive single woman (Fey) who buys an Eastern-European mail-order husband (Carell). The idea for the film originally came from Fey’s husband Jeff Richmond, but the script was written by Robert Carlock and Scott Silveri. The screenwriter team of Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Bad Santa) are currently working on a “light” rewrite of script.

 

While Fey and Carell are currently attached to the project, there is no guarantee that they will end up as the lead actors. As the THR article points out, both Fey and Carell are the anchors on two very successful television shows »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Three

Dinner for Schmucks

Opens: July 23rd 2010

Cast: Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, Bruce Greenwood, David Walliams

Director: Jay Roach

Summary: A renowned publisher encourages his friends to invite the most pathetic guests possible for their weekly dinner party. Just as they find the most pathetic man yet, the host is injured and ends up trapped with the man all night long.

Analysis: A remake of director Francis Veber's 1998 César award-winning "Le Diner des cons", 'Schmucks' is one of the highest profile comedies of next year with one of the strongest casts for the genre in recent memory. It also marks the return of "Austin Powers" and "Meet the Parents" helmer Jay Roach who has produced several films in recent years but hasn't directed since 2004's "Meet the Fockers".

The question now lies not in the performers or director but the material itself and whether a Gallic comedy can »

Tina Fey, Steve Carell may re-team for 'Groom'

17 December 2009 10:38 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Steve Carell and Tina Fey are taking their big-screen relationship to the next level.

The two NBC comedy stars, who will share the screen in the movie "Date Night" this spring, are "loosely attached" to a new project called "Mail-Order Groom," according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film is based on an idea by Fey's husband, Jeff Richmond.

Fey ("30 Rock") would play a woman whose lack of success at relationships leads her to a service that imports men from abroad. She ends up with an Eastern European man played by "The Office" star Carell.

The "loosely attached" part of their involvement stems from the fact that the movie doesn't have a director yet, and filming would have to take place while both Carell and Fey are on hiatus from their shows. The script, originally written by "30 Rock" scribe Robert Carlock and Scott Silveri ("Friends"), is also getting a rewrite from »

Warners Tempts Carell With New Comedy

17 December 2009 10:11 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

As seems to be the norm these days, Steve Carell is in heavy demand. Just yesterday we reported on the Mail Order Groom comedy he's pondering as a likely reunion with Date Night's Tina Fey (and that film is still awaiting release). And now Warners - with whom he has a development deal anyway - is trying to woo him with a comedy pitch.Given that his moviemaking time is limited thanks to his commitments to The Office, he's a picky man, so the studio has splashed out $2 million to buy an untitled spec written by Cars scribe Dan Fogelman.There aren't that many details about the possible pic, but according to Variety, it's a Love Actually-style blend of the bitter and the sweet about a man dealing with a marital crisis and attempting to restore his relationship with his kids.Fogelman apparently wrote the thing with Carell »

Steve Carell & Tina Fey to Reunite for 'Mail-Order' Comedy?

17 December 2009 5:38 PM, PST | TheInsider.com | See recent The Insider news »

Are Tina Fey and Steve Carell going to team up for another big-screen comedy? The "30 Rock" and "The Office" comedians will co-star in April in the big-screen comedy 'Date Night,' and now the two are loosely attached to the romantic comedy 'Mail-Order Groom,' according to The Hollywood Reporter. Based on an idea by Tina's husband, Jeff Richmond, 'Mail-Order Groom' is about a naive single woman looking for love who winds up importing a husband from Eastern Europe to the United States. The script for the film is currently being rewritten by 'Bad Santa' and 'I Love You Phillip Morris' writing duo Glenn Ficarra and John Requa for Warner Bros.

Steve Carell & Tina Fey Might Walk The Aisle In 'Mail-Order Groom'

17 December 2009 2:00 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Steve Carell and Tina Fey are getting married. Well, not really. Just in fiction land. And maybe not even there. Really, the whole marriage thing is an uncertain proposition.

Should Carell and Fey choose to tie the knot on the big screen, it would come in the form of "Mail-Order Groom," a Warner Bros. Comedy in which Fey would star as "a naïve single woman who can't find love and ends up with a husband from Eastern Europe, bringing him home to the States," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Despite the announcement of the potential romantic comedy, nothing is completely set in stone just yet. "Groom" lacks a director at the moment, and Carell and Fey are both juggling hectic schedules thanks to their television obligations on NBC's "The Office" and "30 Rock" respectively.

The only open window for them to film "Groom," THR reports, is after filming concludes on their respective shows for the season. »

17 December 2009 12:05 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Courtesy of IMPAwards, the world’s best movie poster site ever, we have three new posters for Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass, Shawn Levy’s Date Night, and Martin Campbell’s Edge of Darkness.  The Kick-Ass poster feature Chloe Moretz as “Hit-Girl” and completes the set of the previously released posters.  The Date Night poster is so plain that they just took an image we’ve already seen, slapped a gray background and the movie’s titled on it, and went about their business.  Still, people love Steve Carell and Tina Fey so what more do you really need?  And finally, the poster for Edge of Darkness tells us that few escape justice, none escape vengeance, and Mel Gibson can’t escape motion blur. [Update -- This poster was not a finalized version of the alternate poster and we have removed it at the request of the studio]

Hit the jump to check out all the posters plus a brief synopsis on each film.

[We've updated the Kick-Ass poster with a larger version courtesy of IGN]
