David Morrissey Takes Up Residence in ‘The City and the City’ for BBC

13 April 2017 4:22 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

David Morrissey will head the cast of Tony Grisoni’s adaptation of “The City and the City” for BBC Two.

The international cast also features German actress Maria Schrader, recently seen in “Deutschland 83,” and U.S. actor Christian Camargo (“Dexter,” “Penny Dreadful”). Also starring are rising British actress Mandeep Dhillon (“Some Girls”) and veteran British actors Ron Cook and Danny Webb.

Described by the BBC as a “genre-busting thriller” based on the “mind-bending” 2009 novel by China Mieville, “The City and the City” follows the investigation of Inspector Tyador Borlu (Morrissey), a detective in the Extreme Crime Squad of the fictional rundown European city of Beszel, into the death of a foreign student. He soon discovers that the dead girl came from Beszel’s sister city, Ul Qoma, and was involved in the political and cultural strife that exists between the two. To do his job, Borlu must work alongside the Ul Qoman police.

Amazon vs. Netflix: An Itemized Guide to What You Should Be Streaming This Year

4 April 2017 1:26 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

You time is valuable, and so are both services for different reasons.War Machine (Netflix)

Although there may be a competition going on between Amazon and Netflix for subscribers, the truth is that both company’s streaming services are essential for anyone who watches a lot of movies and TV and who wants to be part of the pop culture conversations as they happen.

There’s no denying that Amazon Prime is worth the $99/year, which not only gives you access to many movies but also a good amount of music streaming and digital media access, plus faster shipping for when you actually want some sort of physical product (you can also just get video content for $8.99/month, which oddly means paying more for less).

And Netflix is still a must-have for both its exclusive and nonexclusive content, though depending on one’s usage could be best for sporadic membership rather than continued subscription — now at $120/year »

7 Filmmakers Turning Amazon Into An Art House Cinema Powerhouse

28 March 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Hot off the critical and awards season success of Kenneth Lonergan’s “Manchester by the Sea,” Amazon is continuing to ink major production deals with some of the art house world’s biggest stars, from newly-minted Oscar winner Barry Jenkins to the the delightfully original Leos Carax — and that’s just the start. Amazon’s relationship with creators also includes a number of television heavy-hitters, including Amy Sherman-Palladino and Matthew Weiner, but the keen eye they’ve turned on filmmakers is the one to watch.

Still, there is much work to be done. While Amazon has had major success working with filmmaker and showrunner Jill Soloway — and its latest batch of pilots includes a standout from “Gilmore Girls” alum Sherman-Palladino — the list of filmmakers who recently signed on to produce features with the studio is woefully lacking when it comes to female talents. If you can grab a Yorgos Lanthimos, »

Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote begins production (yes, really)

12 March 2017 3:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

17 years after the plug was pulled on his first attempt, Terry Gilliam has now commenced production on his passion project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, IndieWire is reporting.

As announced last year (when the project was delayed once again), Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Adam Driver is set to take on the lead role originally portrayed by Johnny Depp in the abandoned 2000 version. However, it seems that Gilliam regular Jonathan Pryce (Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen) will now take on the role of Quixote, replacing Michael Palin (who himself replaced John Hurt, Robert Duvall and Jean Rochefort).

Joining Driver and Pryce in the cast are Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace), Stellan Skarsgård (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Joana Ribeiro (A Uma Hora Incerta), Eva Basteiro-Bertoli (Black Bread) and Rossy de Palma (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown).

Here’s the official synopsis for the project, »

Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ Begins Production, Laughs in the Face of God

10 March 2017 12:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote has apparently begun production and now I’m worried that a giant foot will come down from the sky and crush director Terry Gilliam, Monty Python-style. After all, the forces of nature have kept this project on the ropes for nearly two decades. This isn’t even the first time cameras […]

Newswire: Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is back in production, for now

10 March 2017 11:54 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

It has now been 18 years since Terry Gilliam first tried to film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, a.k.a. The Movie That Will Probably Kill Terry Gilliam, Instead. In that time, Gilliam has faced a Job-like series of setbacks on the film, from flash floods to sick actors to dead actors to some “Portuguese chap” who couldn’t deliver the financing he supposedly promised. And yet, Gilliam has persisted on the film for almost two decades, blowing through our entire stock of jokes about “tilting at windmills” and the entire project becoming the exact definition of “quixotic.”

Today, IndieWire reports that Gilliam has hopped back in the saddle again, putting together an unnamed source and an Instagram post from original cast member Rossy De Palma that indicate that production has once again resumed:

By all accounts, the film still stars Adam Driver—the latest in ...

10 March 2017 11:14 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

The epic saga of Terry Gilliam trying to get his The Man Who Killed Don Quixote movie off the ground could make an epic movie of its own. Hell, they already did with 2002's Lost In La Mancha! I mean, this movie has had more false starts than Mickey Rourke's comeback career! Well, it looks like Gilliam's luck has finally changed! According to IndieWire, a source close to the production...

Little details and whispers have come our way over the past few weeks, but like anything regarding Terry Gilliam‘s forever troubled “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,” it seemed too good to be true – and even talking about it would curse the project. But Indiewire reveals that, believe it or not, the project is filming. Right now. Really.

Production company Entre Chien & Loup reveals that Jonathan Pryce has replaced the late John Hurt in the movie, with the cast rounded out by Adam Driver, Olga Kurylenko, Joana Ribeiro, and Stellan Skarsgard.

Terry Gilliam Has Begun Shooting ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,’ For Real This Time

9 March 2017 3:48 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Terry Gilliam has finally begun filming on his very, very long-gestating passion project, “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.”

A source close to the production confirmed to IndieWire that shooting began this week. There’s also the first photos from the set in the form of two Instagram posts, one from actress Rossy de Palma (who was to be part of the movie’s original production in 2000) and one from makeup artist Sylvie Imbert.

De Palma’s post, dated Feb. 27, is a photo of the cover of the film’s screenplay captioned, “FinallyHereWeAre.” Imbert’s post, dated March 6, shows her poring over a production grid for the film and is captioned, “Final touches last night.”

The original 2000 production was infamously delayed and waylaid by a variety of disasters, which were captured in the 2002 documentary “Man of La Mancha.” In October 2016, Gilliam was supposed to go into production with leads Adam Driver and Michael Palin, »

We like to keep you up to date. Actually, keeping you up to date is actually our job. But sometimes... well, in my case, just this one time, I kept a secret from you.

For some time now I have known that Jonathan Pryce had replaced Michael Palin in Terry Gilliam's so infamous it's infamously infamous, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. I almost told you, but... let's just say that the production are trying to keep their heads down and I didn't want to knock them off their game. Now, though, Pryce's name has been added to the site of Entre Chien et Loup, one of the film's production companies so, by my record, that's public domain: http://www. »
