Aaron Sorkin Stunned by Hollywood’s Diversity Problem, Offers Help Any Way He Can

4 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Aaron Sorkin has spent his career writing stories about controversies and power struggles in modern society — from “The West Wing” to “The Social Network” to “The Newsroom.” But one high-profile conversation point seems to have passed him by: The lack of diverse writers’ rooms in Hollywood.

Sorkin revealed his lack of insight during a discussion at the Writers Guild Festival in Los Angeles on March 25, Variety reports.

“Are you saying that women and minorities have a more difficult time getting their stuff read than white men?” he asked the audience at one point. “And you’re also saying that [white men] get to make mediocre movies and can continue on? You’re saying that if you are a woman or a person of color, you have to hit it out of the park in order to get another chance? »

World War Z 2 Producer Still Holding Out Hope For David Fincher

21 March 2017 11:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Much like its predecessor before it, World War Z 2 has encountered its fair share of production woes, after Juan Antonio Bayona’s abrupt departure forced Paramount to pull the apocalyptic sequel from its current release slate.

Prior to Bayona’s exit, World War Z 2 had been clutching on to the admittedly hopeful June 9th, 2017 release slot, which would have placed Paramount’s flesh-munching sequel on a collision course with The Mummy and horror pic It Comes at Night. Alas, that wasn’t to be. Creative setbacks aside, we are beginning to hear word that World War Z 2 is about to turn a corner, after the illustrious David Fincher (Gone Girl, The Social Network) was reportedly short-listed for the gig. Negotiations are still ongoing, it seems, though last we checked Fincher was reportedly keen to climb on board and was simply awaiting the go-ahead from Paramount.

SXSW Free Fire Cast/Crew Red Carpet Interviews

20 March 2017 1:52 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

A24's Free Fire brought its U.S Premiere to South By Southwest. Anarchic Writer/Director Ben Wheatley (High-Rise, Kill List, A Field In England) and cast, Armie Hammer (The Social Network, Lone Ranger) & (the insane) Sharlto Copley (District 9, Chappie), were in attendance. And the film's promotional presence was appropriately subversive. Press had the opportunity to barbecue with Armie and paintball with Sharlto at the explosive 'Stunt Ranch' which featured plenty other daredevil diversions. 

The Q&A's on either end were no less distinct. Ben will shoot a dumb question down with his deadpan shorthand, Sharlto with his charming abrasiveness, and Armie with his cool formality. The laughter provoked through the film persisted into the Q&A. 

But before things got too rowdy, I was able to talk with Ben a second time (the first a discussion on High-Rise) and with Armie Hammer for the first, about their creative »

Mike De Luca turns down Paramount job (reports)

13 March 2017 4:05 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Fifty Shades Darker’ producer understood to be happy with existing set-up.

The Oscar-nominated producer of The Social Network and current box office hit Fifty Shades Darker has reportedly decided not to pursue a top job at the studio.

De Luca, who recently co-produced an Oscars telecast that despite its controversial finale was viewed as one of the best in a long time, had been in contention to head up the film division.

It is understood that scenario would have seen De Luca work under the incoming head of Paramount Pictures. Former Fox Filmed Entertainment chairman Jim Gianopulos is in pole position to replace Brad Grey in that role.

However it is said De Luca favours preserving his current arrangement: a producing deal at Universal that allows him relative freedom and the ability to live half the week with his family in Fort Worth, Texas.

The current set-up also gives the producer of Moneyball, Captain Phillips and the »

Jim Gianopulos frontrunner for Paramount job (reports)

7 March 2017 3:12 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Studio veteran in the frame after second round of talks with Viacom.

The identity of the executive who will replace Brad Grey appeared to be coming into focus on Tuesday.

According to reports, former Fox Filmed Entertainment chairman Jim Gianopulos has impressed Bob Bakish, CEO of Paramount parent company Viacom, and is regarded as a leading candidate to run Paramount.

It also emerged that veteran producer and former New Line executive Mike De Luca is in contention to play a role, possibly overseeing the film division.

De Luca produced current hit Fifty Shades Darker, The Social Network and Moneyball, among many others, and just co-produced the 89th annual Academy Awards where he acquitted himself with distinction despite the best picture envelope mix-up at the finale that was not his fault.

Gianopulos has been a gun for hire since he departed Fox last year and had reportedly been in talks with Legendary to run the Wanda-owned company after Thomas Tull »

If we've learned nothing after the countless number of programming hours on television dedicated to the hunt of serial killers, we are absolutely fascinated by them.

While the chit chat starts out from the familiar voice of Anna Torv (Fringe), it continues with words from Holt McCallanay (Sully).

He sounds like he's warning a man who might be the greenest and most excited of the bunch. 

His attitude is going to bite him in the ass. He thinks it's his job electrocute them not commiserate with them. »

Netflix's War Machine Trailer Has Brad Pitt on the Firing Lines

1 March 2017 8:16 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Netflix presents the First Look at the feature film War Machine, starring Brad Pitt, Emory Cohen, Topher Grace, Anthony Michael Hall, Will Poulter, Lakeith Stanfield, Meg Tilly, Tilda Swinton, and Sir Ben Kingsley. This pitch-black war story takes on hot-shot General Glenn McMahon, a man caught up in a modern war machine that keeps on churning, seemingly to no end.

War Machine is the latest feature film from acclaimed director David Michod (Animal Kingdom). It will be released globally on Netflix on May 26, 2017. It promises to be one of this summer's biggest hits, and if you subscribe to Netflix, you won't even have to leave the comfort of your home to battle the crowds at the multiplex.

An absurdist war story for our times, writer-director David Michod (Animal Kingdom) recreates a U.S. General's roller-coaster rise and fall as part reality, part savage parody - raising the specter of just »

Film Critics Pick One Thing They Would Change About the Oscars — IndieWire Critics Survey

27 February 2017 2:13 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

What is one thing that you would change about the Oscars?

Richard Brody (@tnyfrontrow), The New Yorker

The awards turned out far better than usual last night, but the event was just as stage-managed and reined-in as ever — at a time when a little wildness would have been more than welcome (and which ultimately came, entirely by accident). I’m still waiting for Eddie Murphy to host; but at the systemic level, the most absurd injustice in the Oscar system is the one that allows each country’s official committee, even one under government control, to choose its entry for Best Foreign-Language Film.

‘David Fincher & The Craft of Music Videos’ Goes Deep on the Filmmaker’s Rich Pop Video Career — Watch

21 February 2017 11:13 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Plenty of film fans and hardened cinephiles are familiar with David Fincher’s filmography of award-winning dramas like “The Social Network,” “Fight Club,” and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” but other non-super fans may overlook his storied history with pop music. A new video essay from Patrick H. Willems seeks to fix that by analyzing what exactly made Fincher, in the words of Willems, “one of the best pop music video directors of all time.”

The essay takes a deep dive into Fincher’s work on the videos for Madonna’s “Vogue,” Justin Timberlake’s “Suit and Tie,” and George Michael’s “Freedom.” Willems compares Fincher’s naturalized style to more mainstream pop videos, emphasizing the director’s rare talent for attention to detail, shooting choreography, and telling a story in a different medium. »

The Craft of David Fincher’s Music Videos

20 February 2017 9:35 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The name David Fincher conjures up a few buzzwords for film-lovers: “dark,” “elaborate,” “precise.” Also, “many takes” and “tracking shots” (and, in film school, “6K cropped to 4K for maximum stabilization”). When discussing his work, many will point to his game-changing Se7en, his millennium-defining The Social Network, or arguably his magnum opus, Zodiac. However, far fewer talk about how the meticulous auteur broke into the business, and simultaneously learned his craft: music videos. But not just any music videos. Pop — pop only, in fact.

A new video essay titled David Fincher & The Craft of Music Videos by Patrick Willems dives into Fincher’s back catalogue of directorial work, where he shot videos for Madonna, the late George Michael, and Paula Abdul, among others. Studying this work turns out to be fascinating, as it points to many things — namely how Fincher was able to chomp at the bit of filmmaking through these videos, »

Trump, Triumph and Speaking Truth to Power: Politics Take a Bow at 2017 Writers Guild Awards

19 February 2017 9:50 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When you think about the Writers Guild of America, which hosted two award ceremonies on Sunday night in two Blue cities, New York and Los Angeles, it’s no surprise that the writers spoke out. (Check out videos of some of the best bits below.)

For example, while accepting his life achievement award, filmmaker Oliver Stone got two standing ovations. After conservative James Woods was targeted at the top of the evening by WGA West Awards show host Patton Oswalt, retaliating by going onstage to steal his shoe, Woods presented the WGA award to the ultra liberal Stone, who starred him in “Salvador,” won three Oscars for “Midnight Express,” “Born on the Fourth of July” and “Platoon,” and penned “greed is good.”

Stone thanked mentors Robert Bolt and Ernest Lehman as well as Wma agent Ron Mardigian. He reminded that when he told Billy Wilder about his “Nixon” running time of 3 hours 10 minutes, »
