The group of friends who return to the cabin in the woods for a weekend genre is one that gets its share of entrants, though they are often spaced out to a degree, but Beside Still Waters is getting more attention than most, and is getting first-time director Chris Lowell‘s name mentioned quite a bit.
Lowell’s most recent acting effort was the show Enlisted, but many may remember him from Private Practice, or Veronica Mars. Now he’s taking on directing, and co-writing, and this is certainly an interesting choice for a first move.
The movie also stars The Blacklist‘s Ryan Eggold, and a diverse group that you’re likely to recognize. The general premise may sound familiar, but this one has a few new spins to throw at you, including Whiskey Slaps.
Take a look at the trailer, and keep this one in mind.
Mourning the sudden death of his parents, »

Three years after the final Harry Potter movie came out, it's fair to say that Daniel Radcliffe has actively distanced himself from the role, taking parts in controversial plays like Equus and provocative movies like Kill Your Darlings. While Dumbeldore is far from the dreary town in Horns, there are a handful of things in Radcliffe's new movie that harken back to his Harry days. The film revolves around Ig Perrish (Radcliffe), a young man who curiously sprouts horns on his head in the wake of his girlfriend's (Juno Temple) mysterious murder. The whole town believes he's guilty of killing the beloved girl, but just when he thinks he's completely screwed, people start behaving really strangely around his horns. It doesn't sound like a Harry Potter movie at all, right? Well, I spotted some evidence to the contrary. There's a big fantasy element. Ig sprouts horns. Horns. Like, from his head. »
From master-of-horror Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D) comes Horns, a supernatural, offbeat thriller starring beloved British actor Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, Kill Your Darlings) and Juno Temple (Magic Magic, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For).
Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe) is accused for the violent rape and killing of his girlfriend, Merrin Williams (Juno Temple). After a hard night of drinking, Ig awakens, hungover, to find horns growing out of his head; they have the ability to drive people to confess sins and give in to selfish impulses. Ig decides to use this effective tool to discover the circumstances of his girlfriend’s death and to seek revenge by finding the true murderer…

We haven't been lacking in depictions of William S. Burroughs on the big screen in recent years with both Viggo Mortensen ("On The Road") and Ben Foster ("Kill Your Darlings") portraying the famed writer. But now a film thought to be long lost has resurfaced, giving fans and newcomers a window in Burroughs' world via the gnarled Beat eminence himself. Today, the Playlist has an exclusive clip from "Burroughs: The Movie." Starting as a thesis project in the late 1970s at New York University by director Howard Brookner (with sound by Jim Jarmusch, and cinematography by Tom Dicillo), production on "Burroughs: The Movie" eventually spanned over five years, with the filmmaker not only logging plenty of time with his subject, but also with fellow travelers like Allen Ginsberg, Terry Southern, John Giorno, and Brion Gysin. However, when Brookner passed due to AIDS in 1989, his film was thought to be lost. »

After diving into rather dramatic indie territory with Kill Your Darlings last year, director John Krokidas is heading into young adult territory. However, thankfully it won't be another dystopian sci-fi adventure as THR reports Krokidas will be at the helm of the adaptation of Wonder, a novel by R.J. Palacio from 2012. Sounding similar to the 1985 film Mask, the film follows a 10-year-old boy named Auggie Pullman who has facial difference which has kept him from going to a mainstream school. We join him as he heads into fifth grade at Beecher Prep, only wanting to fit in. Of course, he'll teach everyone not to judge a book by its cover. This sounds pretty cheesy for a promising director like Krokidas, but maybe he'll bring a different kind of style to a story that could easily turn into something hokey. The book is pretty popular, having sold 2 million copies since being published a couple years ago, »

Having made his feature length directorial debut in 2013 with the Daniel Radcliffe-starring Kill Your Darlings, John Krokidas will now tackle Lionsgate’s Young Adult fiction adaptation of the award-winning book Wonder, by R.J. Palacio. The novel, which took the top slot of the New York Times bestseller list on publication, won both a Maine Student Book Award and Vermont’s Dorothy Canfield Fisher Children’s Book Award, as well as featuring on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list. It is hardly surprising, then, that Hollywood would snap it up.
Wonder tells the story of 10-year-old Auggie Pullman, who has a rare facial malformation caused by mandibulofacial dysostosis. Having been previously home-schooled by his mother, Auggie finds himself heading into fifth grade at Beecher Pre, and must try to fit in and make friends. He meets prejudice and bullying from many quarters – but also makes firm and long-lasting connections with his fellow students. »

Viking movies have been a tough nut to crack for Hollywood. Mel Gibson has been trying for years, and Alexander Skarsgard has had one in the works for a while, but it looks like Baltasar Kormákur will beat the competition to the punch with his "Vikingr" (yes, that's how it's spelled). The filmmaker, who also co-wrote the script, has set up the movie over at Universal, and it's based on the classic tales deriving from the legendary Icelandic Sagas, which document larger than life heroes, adventures and battles of early Nordic settlers, as well as daily life in the Viking age. This is expected to be Kormákur's next gig after the upcoming "Everest." "Kill Your Darlings" director John Krokidas is drinking from the Ya cup, as he's been set to helm "Wonder." Based on the book by R.J. Palacio, it follows "a 10-year-old named Auggie Pullman, whose facial difference has »

In what's bound to be the latest in a string of enormously successful Ya adaptations, R.J. Palacio's debut novel, Wonder, is getting the big-screen treatment. Kill Your Darlings helmer John Krokidas has signed on to direct the film with a script by Jack Thorne, EW has confirmed. The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.

One of the buzziest films of the year is Whiplash, starring Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons, who go head-to-head in a story about a young jazz drummer and his ruthless instructor. The film takes off from its opening scene, building both the tempo and tension for much of its 106 minutes before leaving audiences stunned by the pair’s relentless nature.
Whiplash first wowed Sundance audiences back in January, and the film is finally opening in theaters nationwide on Oct. 10. Before you head out, we’re breaking down the most important elements so you know exactly what you’re getting into.
The film was blacklisted
In 2012, Damien Chazelle’s screenplay was featured on film executive Franklin Leonard’s annual round up of unproduced scripts. The Black List, which was created in 2004, has been responsible for catapulting several stories to the screen big. Some of the biggest films to come out of the list are American Hustle, »

Exclusive: Harry Potter‘s Daniel Radcliffe is in negotiations to join the cast of Now You See Me 2, the sequel to the magician caper that conjured $351.7 million for Summit and Lionsgate last summer.

Also coming back for more magic is Michael Caine as the duped insurance magnate Arthur Tressler; Radcliffe will play his son.

Sony Pictures Classics co-presidents Michael Barker and Tom Bernard were honored as icons of the Gotham film business on Monday at a lively party hosted by Variety on the roof of the Gramercy Park Hotel.
The two indie impresarios took a break from the New York Film Festival, where the company is fielding six premieres, including major screenings of such leading Oscar contenders as “Whiplash,” “Mr. Turner” and “Foxcatcher,” to be feted for their efforts to bring challenging and innovative work to the big screen.
“They personify independent cinema,” said Variety co-editor-in-chief Claudia Eller during remarks about the pair’s contributions to film. “I learn so much every time I walk away from a conversation with them.”

Jack Huston cast in 'Ben-Hur' remake? 'Boardwalk Empire' actor to follow in the footsteps of Ramon Novarro and Charlton Heston Jack Huston, best known for playing World War I veteran-turned-bootlegger-cum-assassin Richard Harrow in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire, may star in the latest Ben-Hur "remake," to be jointly produced by Paramount and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. I have "remake" between quotes because officially this fourth big-screen version of the semi-biblical epic (more on that below) isn't an actual remake of either the multiple Oscar-winning 1959 Ben-Hur or its 1925 predecessor, but a direct adaptation of former Civil War general Lew Wallace's 1880 bestselling novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ, which happens to be conveniently in the public domain. Timur Bekmambetov, whose credits include the Angelina Jolie-James McAvoy thriller Wanted and the supernatural cult classic Night Watch, has been attached as director of what is in fact A Tale »

Jack Huston is your new "Ben-Hur." The "Boardwalk Empire" star has been set to play the title role in MGM and Paramount's upcoming remake, according to Deadline. Timur Bekmambetov ("Wanted") is set to direct the epic film, in which Morgan Freeman was previously cast as Ildarin, the man who trains Ben-Hur to become a champion chariot racer. As we reported last month, Tom Hiddleston had previously been eyed for the lead role. Best known for his role as masked hitman Richard Harrow on the HBO crime drama, Huston has also appeared in a number of recent films including "American Hustle," "Kill Your Darlings" and David Chase's "Not Fade Away." Upcoming big-screen credits for the actor include "Posthumous" opposite Brit Marling, Nicholas Sparks adaptation "The Longest Ride" and "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," an adaptation of the bestselling mashup novel by Seth Grahame-Smith. Based on the hugely popular 1880 novel by Lew Wallace, »

Months after appearing in Judd Apatow’s Trainwreck (Universal releases this next summer), Screen Daily reports that Brie Larson is rejoining her costar in Douglas McGrath’s Brooklyn Bridge - a “monument” and father/son biopic about the architectural marvel and lifeline between the two biggest cities in the U.S. Also joining the Killer Films’ production, is the dozen plus project slate (in various stages of production) Ben Kingsley. Indie vet Christine Vachon is producing with Rose Ganguzza (both of them had previously worked on Kill Your Darlings — also starring Radcliffe). Production is set for spring 2015.
Gist: This follows a young, inexperienced engineer named Washington Roebling (Radcliffe), who is entrusted with the responsibility of overseeing the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge after his father (Kingsley) passes away. Larson will play his wife, Emily — who would become a pivotal figure in the completion of the fourteen year project.

The plot is based on the true story of a 1952 Coast Guard rescue mission, following one of the worst storms ever to hit the East Coast, which literally ripped an oil tanker in half. Facing sub-zero temperatures and waves as high as 70 feet, four Coast Guard members set off in a lifeboat to rescue over 30 crew members who were stranded in the sinking vessel. The mission is still considered to be the greatest 'small boat rescue" in Coast Guard history. No details were given for Ben Foster's character.
Craig Gillespie (Million Dollar Arm) is directing from a script by Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson (The Fighter), which was adapted from the book by Casey Sherman and Michael J. Tougias. Production is currently under way.

Over the past few years, both Rooney Mara and Dane DeHaan have become quite the impressive young actors, with the former making waves in The Social Network, Ain't Them Bodies Saints and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and the latter breaking through with Chronicle and expanding with Kill Your Darlings, Life After Beth and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Now the two will team up in a completely different genre for both of them as THR reports DeHaan and Mara will star in a 1920s set musical called Ziggy, which will be directed by Australian filmmaker Diesel Schwarze, a protégé of Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrmann. The film will follow the rise and fall of the title character (DeHaan), a hunchback escape artist who arrives in New York during the mass-culture boom of the late 1920s and falls in love with the fiancée (Mara) of a powerful media mogul.

Update: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies just won't die, and hopefully the new cast will give it the breath of life it needs to make the parody film work. Lily Collins is now out, but Lily James (the new Cinderella) is in. Other new cast members include Sam Riley (Maleficent), Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows), Douglas Booth (Romeo & Juliet) as Mr. Darcy's friend Bingley and Emma Greenwell ("Shameless") as Bingley's sister, and Jack Huston (Kill Your Darlings) as the handsome Lt. Wickham. It hasn't been clarified if Riley is playing Mr. Darcy or if that role has yet to be cast.
May 2, 2013: Lily Collins (Mirror, Mirror) will star in Pride, Prejudice and Zombies and, in doing so, brings the project back from grave. Burr Steers (17 Again) will direct, which - if you're counting - makes the project's the fifth director. The movie is based on Seth Grahame-Smith's reimagining of »
