Darabont Eyes 'Snow White and the Hunstman 2' and McNairy Joins 'Batman v. Superman'

26 June 2014 3:43 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Mist) is in talks to direct Snow White and the Huntsman 2, reportedly beating out Gavin O'Connor (Warrior) and Andy Muschietti (Mama). Additional word is Kristen Stewart is not expected to return as Snow White, though she may have a small cameo appearance. Darabont's take on the story apparently focuses on Chris Hemsworth as the titular Huntsman. The Wrap Scoot McNairy (The Rover) is joining Zack Snyder's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice in an unspecified role. Deadline Benjamin Bratt is set to join Ice Cube and Kevin Hart in Ride Along 2 for Universal with Tim Story (Think Like a Man Too) returning to direct. In typical sequel fashion, the story will move to a sunny locale, this time Miami where I'm sure Cube and Hart will get involved with some drug lord or something. The film hits theaters January 15, 2016. Variety »

The Academy Invites 271 New Members for 2014

26 June 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong'o among 271 Academy invitees

26 June 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years a Slave were two of the 271 artists and industry leaders invited to become members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which determines nominations and winners at the annual Oscars. The entire list of Academy membership—which numbers about 6,000—isn’t public information so the annual invitation list is often the best indication of the artists involved in the prestigious awards process. It’s worth noting that invitations need to be accepted in order for artists to become members; some artists, like two-time Best Actor winner Sean Penn, have declined membership over the years. »

Frank Darabont in talks to direct Snow White and the Huntsman 2

26 June 2014 12:02 PM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

Frank Darabont has directed some great movies including The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile. He more recently helped produce The Walking Dead until he was fired. He doesn't just say yes to anything obviously; so why he would want to lend his name to the sequel for Snow White And The Huntsman is beyond me. He beat out previous frontrunners Gavin O'Connor (Warrior) and Andy Muschietti (Mama) for the gig after the studio and producer Joe Roth were said to be happy with »

Josh Hutcherson, Lupita Nyong'o, Pharrell and 268 others invited to join the Academy

26 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »

Academy Invites 271 New Members

26 June 2014 11:49 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has invited 271 individuals to become members, with the list reflecting the org’s determination to bring more diversity to its ranks.

Every year, the list of invitations includes several recent Oscar nominees. That’s true this year as well, with letters going out Wednesday to a cross-section of people including 2013 contenders Barkhad Abdi, Lupita Nyong’o, Hayao Miyazaki, Pharrell Williams, Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, plus such creatives as Megan Ellison, Chris Rock, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Steve Coogan, Jason Statham, William Chang Suk Ping, Joan Sobel, Tracey Seaward, Mads Mikkelsen and Chantal Akerman.

Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs told Variety Thursday, “This is a continuation of an initiative to bring in new voices. Filmmaking has gotten more diverse, and audiences have been responding. There are terrific filmmakers around the world at the top of their game and we want to recognize them and bring them into the Academy. »

Exclusive: Frank Grillo on his Captain America 2 role and The Raid remake

15 June 2014 10:54 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Actor Frank Grillo tells us about reprising his role from Marvel's Captain America 2 and the state of The Raid remake...


Having begun his acting career in the early 90s, Frank Grillo has steadily built up an impressive body of work in TV and film, with some of his best big-screen roles including Warrior, The Grey and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

This year sees Grillo star in the action sci-fi sequel The Purge: Anarchy, and it was during an interview about this film, due out next month, that the actor told us a little bit about his future appearances. First, there's his character Brock Rumlow - also known as Crossbones - in Marvel's Captain America sequel. Was that a role he'd be returning to in the future?

"Well, I do know that I've signed on for multiple films, so yeah, it looks that way," Grillo told us, "but »

'Captain America' Star Frank Grillo To Star In Remake Of 'The Raid,' Isla Fisher Joins 'Grimsby' & More

14 June 2014 7:42 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The idea of a remake of Indonesian action sensation "The Raid" without the bonkers, surely-someone-must-have-died action genius of director Gareth Evans, or with the presumably lax approach to health and safety that's the only way some of the insanity of the film (and its even crazier sequel) could have been pulled off, seems somewhat pointless. But nevertheless, Screen Gems have been pressing on, with "Red Hill" and "The Expendables 3" helmer Patrick Hughes attached to direct, and they just made a hire that means we might have a sliver of interest in the prospect. The excellent Frank Grillo, who broke out in the last few years thanks to "Warrior," "The Grey" and, most recently, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," in which he played a villainous Hydra agent, has told We Got This Covered that he's signed on to star in the remake of "The Raid."

Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hardy Top Marvel’s List of Dr. Strange Actors

6 June 2014 8:08 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »


Marvel is moving along with their Phase Three plans, including the Dr. Strange film. Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hardy are at the top of Marvel’s list of people who should play the Master of the Mystic Arts, Dr. Stephen Strange.



According to Deadline, Marvel Entertainment has composed a wish-list of big-name actors who they would like to see in the title role of their planned Dr. Strange movie. Benedict Cumberbatch is high on the list, as is Tom Hardy.


Benedict Cumberbatch came on the scene with a splash due to his highly acclaimed portrayal of Sherlock Holmes on the BBC series Sherlock. He has also dived into sci-fi lore by playing that notorious bad guy Kahn Singh in Star Trek: Into Darkness, and into fantasy realms with voice-over roles in the Hobbit trilogy. He’s appeared in critically praised films such as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and War Horse. »

Frank Darabont in Talks for Snow White and the Huntsman Sequel

5 June 2014 6:49 AM, PDT | | See recent Worst Previews news »

After "Snow White and the Huntsman" grossed around $400 million at the worldwide box office, Universal Pictures greenlit a sequel, but is not bringing back director Rupert Sanders. Deadline is now reporting that the studio is in talks with three helmers, including Frank Darabont (Shawshank Redemption), Gavin O'Connor (Warrior) and Andy Muschietti (Mama). The most surprising person on the list has to be Darabont, who not only directed "Shawshank Redemption" and "The Green Mile," but he also launched "The Walking Dead" TV series. His last film was "The Mist," back in 2007, and has since been planning lots of personal projects, none of which is a sequel to some studio film. "Snow White and the Huntsman 2" will bring back Chris Hemsworth and Kristen Stewart. It's tentatively set to hit theaters in 2016. »

Snow White And The Huntsman 2 director shortlist

4 June 2014 10:41 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Frank Darabont and Gavin O'Connor are amongst the potential directors of Snow White And The Huntsman 2...


Well, this one's a film that disappeared off the radar for a while. The sequel to Snow White And The Huntsman looked likely off the back of the original film doing reasonable box office, but things have been quiet surrounding the project for some time now. It's long been known that original director Rupert Sanders wouldn't be back for it, but both Chris Hemsworth and Kristen Stewart are set to return.

But who will be directing? Well, we're glad you asked.

The apparently shortlist for Snow White And The Huntsman 2 is actually quite an interesting one. Frank Darabont is on it for a start, and if he took the job on it'd a) be a surprise and b) be his first feature since 2007's The Mist.

Elsewhere? Gavin O'Connor - best »

Snow White And The Huntsman 2: Director Short List Includes Frank Darabont, Andres Muschietti, and Gavin O’Connor

4 June 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

The short list for Universal's Snow White and the Huntsman sequel include veteran directors Frank Darabont and Gavin O'Connor, with relative newcomer Andres Muschietti being named as well.  While Darabont's name may be more familiar to the common movie-goer due to his work adapting and directing Stephen King stories for Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, and The Mist, O'Connor has been in the feature-directing game almost as long.  However, his most notable works came in the 2000s with sports dramas Miracle and Warrior; O'Connor's current film is the Western Jane Got a Gun.  Muschietti made a name for himself with his lone credit, the horror film Mama.  Hit the jump for more on this intriguing trio of directors. Deadline reports that Darabont, O'Connor, and Muschietti comprise the shortlist of directors for Snow White and the Huntsman 2.  Darabont has kept busy with television of late, wearing multiple hats for The Walking Dead and Mob City, »

'Snow White and the Huntsman' Sequel Eyes Frank Darabont & More

4 June 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

While there's a lot of buzz around the shortlist of directors Marvel is considering to take over Ant-Man (two more names surfaced today), there are other movies that are still in need of talent behind the camera. One of those films is the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman, the 2012 fantasy revisionist fairytale starring Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth. The film is expected to arrive sometime in 2016, and Deadline reports Universal has their eyes on Frank Darabont (The Mist), Gavin O'Connor (Warrior) and Andres Muschietti (Mama) to direct the follow-up to Rupert Sanders' directorial debut. More below! Darabont is undoubtedly my first choice for this film. He hasn't directed a film since the underrated 2007 sci-fi horror The Mist, but before that he deliver The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile, both spectacular dramas. Plus, he also helped make "The Walking Dead" a hit on TV. Meanwhile, O'Connor isn't »

Shortlist For Snow White And The Huntsman 2 Revealed

4 June 2014 1:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though the directing search that has preoccupied most media outlets over the past few days has been focused on Marvel’s Ant-Man, which lost Edgar Wright and then had Adam McKay and Rawson Thurber pass in quick succession, Universal is busy looking for a helmer to take on another blockbuster: Snow White and the Huntsman 2.

According to Deadline, the shortlist for that sequel, which is expected to star Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth, consists of Frank Darabont, Gavin O’Connor and Andres Muschietti. Those are three tremendously talented directors, though whether any of them will be willing to jump on board a major franchise like this one remains to be seen.

Darabont, who helmed classic dramas The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile, recently worked on AMC’s zombie thriller The Walking Dead before getting fired by AMC. His last film was 2007′s The Mist, so Darabont is overdue to get back behind the camera. »

Director Short List For Snow White & The Huntsman Sequel

4 June 2014 12:43 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Deadline is reporting, Univesal Pictures has three directors already in mind to helm their Snow White and the Huntsman sequel. Those three directors in contention are: Frank Darabont, Gavin O’Connor and Andy Muschietti. Frank Darabont is probably the biggest surprise on this list as he is known to be very picky about which films he works on. He is the former showrunner of AMC's The Walking Dead, until he was booted cause he wanted the number 1 show on cable television to have a higher budget. What a jerk! He is also the director of arguably the best film of all time, Shawshank Redemption. Gavin O'Connor is also talented as he directed Warrior, a thrilling mixed-martial arts film with Tom Hardy. Lastly, there is Andy Muschietti who directed the Guillermo del Toro-produced horror film, Mama. The first film was directed by Rupert Sanders and starred Kristen Stewart ("Twilight"), but »

Spike Jonze and Johnny Knoxville Visit a Sex Therapist, Roth Joins 'Selma' and Smith Finds 'Game Brain'

Tim Roth will play George Wallace, the Alabama governor who favored segregation and whose bullying tactics galvanized Martin Luther King Jr and the 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery, in Ava DuVernay's Selma. Deadline Will Smith has dropped out of starring in Brilliance and will instead star in a film based on the NFL's concussion problem based on the GQ article "Game Brain" written by Jeanne Marie Laskas. Peter Landesman (Parkland) will write and direct. Variety Gavin O'Connor (Warrior) recently took over directing the troubled Jane Got a Gun and will next move to the action adventure Massacre in the Himalayas following an international team of world-class mountain climbers who are intent on conquering the K2 summit in Pakistan, and are plunged into a grueling journey when attacked by a group of extremists. The story is based on the August 2013 article of the same title at "Men's Health" by Freddie Wilkinson. »

'Jane Got A Gun' Director Gavin O’Connor To Explore 'Massacre In The Himalayas'

3 June 2014 11:33 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As his career has pressed forward, director Gavin O'Connor's film titles have gotten progressively blunter: "Pride And Glory," "Warrior" and his forthcoming, "Jane Got A Gun." And now he's got another that makes no bones about the subject and thematic elements. The director has signed up to helm "Massacre In The Himalayas," which is exactly what it sounds like. The film will be based on Men's Journal article (read it here) by Freddie Wilkinson, that tells the true story of a dozen mountain climbers, trying to reach the summit of K2, who are attacked and eventually killed by Pakistani terrorists. Ten were killed, with one surviving by jumping off a cliff... And while it's a great true story, Variety notes it will be fictionalized, but let's hope they don't get too creative with the adaptation. No word yet on whether or not this will be the filmmaker's next effort, »
