Chris Morgan talks The Legend of Conan: “Think Unforgiven… with a sword-wielding barbarian”

25 May 2015 1:31 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in February, we heard that Will Beall (Gangster Squad) had taken over scriptwriting duties on The Legend of Conan, and now producer Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious) has revealed to The Arnold Fans that the screenplay is complete, and that the film will be a direct sequel to John MiliusConan the Barbarian which will catch up with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Cimmerian warrior some thirty years later.

“Our tone is a logical extension of the character established in the ’82 film…but 30 years later. When we meet him again, Conan has been many things over the course of his life — a thief, a warrior, a pirate, a king, a legend — and is now an older man. Think Unforgiven…with a sword-wielding barbarian. Milius was a visionary. And a hero of mine. He established a milieu that is stunning and violent and clear — incomparable. The goal, the dream, is to live up to his world. »

Return to Sender movie review: yes, return to sender

21 May 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

For almost the entire running time of this movie, we have no idea what it is about. What is it trying to say? What sort of story is it trying to tell? I’m “biast” (pro): love Rosamund Pike

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

In my head I’m calling this film What Is This I Can’t Even: The Movie. It works at least as well as the blandly generic and not even really apropos Return to Sender, which describes a tiny section of the second act that then resolves itself and has no further bearing on the story. In fact, the bearing it does have on the story hardly makes any sense at all, not on the level of plot, character, or theme. Not that the plot, characters, or putative themes make any sense on a whole-movie level, »

Love is in the airJosh Brolin is officially engaged to his assistant, Kathryn Boyd, the actor's rep confirms to to Us Weekly. Sources close to the site say the the "Labor Day" star popped the question to the blonde beauty just last month. Josh and Kathryn recently vacationed in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico where they were spotted celebrating what looked like the next step in their relationship.  "They were with two tables worth of people so it was a big group, more than eight people," the witness told Us. "They had a fixed menu and it seemed like they were celebrating something ... It looked like a party and it seemed celebratory." The cute couple first started dating back in March 2013 -- just one month after the "Gangster Squad" actor and ex-wife Diane Lane announced they were splitting. Their divorce was finalized in November of 2013, the same time Josh entered rehab for substance abuse problems. »

The 10 new versions of Robin Hood in development

8 May 2015 8:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Film, TV and games companies have big plans for legendary tights-wearer Robin Hood. Here’s our primer on all the new versions…

Note: we've taken images from old Robin Hood projects because these new films and things, um, don't exist yet. Maximum geek points to whoever can remember what they're all from.

You don’t need us to remind you, but these days Hollywood and TV executives seem to have one target in mind – big franchises, hopefully with spin-offs and tie-ins galore across all possible forms of media.

An interesting consequence of all this is that the entertainment industry has begun looking beyond capes and cowls in their ‘what can we make a franchise out of?’ discussions. ‘What about other sorts of legendary characters?’ you can imagine them asking, before a big eureka moment… ‘What about Robin bloody Hood?!’

Almost simultaneously, it seems like every studio in Hollywood has latched »

10 Stories You Might Have Missed: Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone to co-star in musical

1 May 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone sizzled with on-screen chemistry in “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” and now they’ll get the chance to do that again — this time with song added to the mix. The two actors are officially set to lead musical movie “La La Land,” Lionsgate announced via press release on Thursday. Directed by Damien Chazelle, the Oscar-nominated writer-director of “Whiplash,” the musical is about Sebastian (Gosling) and Mia (Stone), are drawn together by their common desire to do what they love,” the press release detailed. “But as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart.” It’ll be a third movie project together for the duo, who also co-starred in “Gangster Squad.” The two actors have each given audience a taste of »

Watch: Explore Gangster Culture In This Fedora-Filled, Bullet-Riddled Supercut

28 April 2015 1:03 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Rewind to January 2013. Gangster movie aficionados eagerly awaited the release of Sean Penn’s “Gangster Squad,” the Ruben Fleischer-directed period piece that also starred Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, and Emma Stone. Unfortunately, the film didn’t quite live up to expectations, earning a paltry 32% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and grossing just over $46M domestic against a reported $60M budget.  Despite its disappointments, there was much to be eager about before the film opened. American audiences hadn’t had a great gangster flick in a while (2012’s “Lawless” was far from flawless, and “The Departed” was six and a half years old by then). As a lead-in to the film’s opening weekend, Press Play’s Matt Zoller Seitz and Nelson Carvajal reminded fans of the genre of all there is to love about mob movies with a four and a half minute video essay Carvajal put together.

New Projects: Chris Pratt gearing up for bootlegging drama ‘The Real McCoy’

16 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

You might’ve used the expression “The Real McCoy” and not actually known where it came from. Colloquially it refers to something being authentic, or the real deal. In fact, if someone were to name their movie after it, you might presume it was just a romantic comedy.

Well, now super-mega-star Chris Pratt is set to star in a movie about where that expression originated. The Real McCoy is a bootlegging drama about the life of Bill McCoy, a famous rum-runner during Prohibition who, as an American sea captain, shipped and sold illegal liquor across the coast until his capture in 1923. According to urban legend, McCoy touted that his liquor was never “cut”, or watered down, thus the expression “The Real McCoy”. But McCoy is also credited with having essentially created the six pack in order to better carry and ship bottles of rum and whiskey.

Emma Stone And Ryan Gosling Reunite For Damien Chazelle’s La La Land

15 April 2015 12:51 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Crazy Stupid Love brought together one of contemporary cinema’s most attractive pairings in the shape of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. Their electric chemistry outshone the sometimes-wavering material and left audiences feeling all warm and fuzzy at their cutesy story arc. As the duo are now circling a new project, that would fling them back together, will we see more of their romantic rapport onscreen?

By the sounds of it, that’s a resounding yes. According to Deadline, Stone and Gosling are the latest thespian couple in the crosshairs for Damien Chazelle’s romantic musical La La Land, which is described as “an old fashioned musical set in contemporary Los Angeles and centers on a love story between a jazz pianist and an aspiring actress.” Originally, the Whiplash helmer had his drummer boy Miles Teller set to co-star alongside Emma Watson, but the pair dropped out due to various commitments elsewhere. »

La La Land: Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, who previously showed great chemistry in Crazy, Stupid, Love and Gangster Squad, are now in talks to join the musical La La Land.

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone for Whiplash director's next film

15 April 2015 7:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are set to star in the next film from Whiplash director Damien Chazelle.

La La Land - a romantic musical set in contemporary Los Angeles - is expected to begin shooting in the autumn, according to Deadline.

The project would reunite Gosling and Stone, who previously worked together on 2011's Crazy, Stupid, Love and 2013's Gangster Squad.

La La Land will centre around aspiring and lonely actress Mia (Stone) and cocky, charismatic jazz pianist Sebastian (Gosling), who fall for each other.

However, the pair soon discover the challenge of making their relationship work in the cut-throat climate of the entertainment industry.

Last year, it was reported that Emma Watson and Miles Teller were poised to join the project, but neither deal worked out.

It was recently reported that Gosling will star in director Guillermo del Toro's reboot of The Haunted Mansion. »

Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone Circle 'Whiplash' Director's 'La La Land'

15 April 2015 6:54 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last summer, we heard Whiplash star Miles Teller was looking to reteam with director Damien Chazelle for a Los Angeles set musical La La Land. At the time, Harry Potter franchise star Emma Watson was also in talks for the female lead, but they've both fallen away. Deadline is now reporting that Crazy Stupid Love and Gangster Squad co-stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are circling the film about an aspiring actress named Mia, who's lonely desperate to fit in, and a cocky yet charismatic jazz pianist named Sebastian, who fall in love in Los Angeles. It's a straight-up, contemporary, romantic musical. More below! La La Land is also written by Chazelle, and it certainly sounds different than his Best Picture nominated directorial debut Whiplash. This also sounds like an interesting change of pace for both Gosling and Stone, who we haven't seen sing on the big screen at all yet. »
