Leonardo DiCaprio to produce Yellowstone female alpha wolf movie

29 September 2014 2:27 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Leonardo DiCaprio is to produce American Wolf.

The film will be an adaptation of Nate Blakeslee's book about O-Six, the famous female leader of a wolfpack at Yellowstone National Park.

In 2010, there was an outcry as she was legally shot by a hunter, which led many to campaign for new hunting regulations.

The book has yet to be completed, but the Wolf of Wall Street star has already signed on to produce the film version.

DiCaprio will produce alongside Kevin McCormick (Gangster Squad), but while publishing rights were recently bought for a seven-figure sum by Crown in the Us and Knopf in Canada, no further details of the project have been announced.

DiCaprio has recently been appointed Messenger of Peace for the United Nations.

It was also revealed that he will star alongside Brad Pitt and Robert De Niro in a short film by Martin Scorsese. »

Leonardo DiCaprio Tackling Wild Animal Tale 'American Wolf' (Exclusive)

26 September 2014 11:27 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Just days after a seven-figure book deal was made for American Wolf, Hollywood is now also trapping the canis lupus murder mystery. Leonardo DiCaprio and his Appian Way production banner are partnering with Kevin McCormick's Langley Park to pick up the movie rights to the book proposal by Nate Blakeslee. The book generated plenty of interest on both the publishing side and the movie side, with New Regency and Robert Zemeckis' ImageMovers also in on the bidding. McCormick, who spearheaded the hunt for the rights, is the Warners-based producer of Gangster Squad who recently wrapped the independent Mickey

Ruben Fleischer on ‘Two Night Stand’s’ Max Nichols: ‘The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From the Tree’

17 September 2014 1:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Indie romcom “Two Night Stand” features a wealth of players on a path to making a bigger name for themselves, from former “America’s Next Top Model” contestant Analeigh Tipton to Scott Mescudi, better known as hip hop artist Kid Cudi. But perhaps the most notable rising star at film’s Tuesday premiere at the Tcl Chinese Theatre was director Max Nichols, son of director Mike Nichols.

“My whole life I’ve had this incredible ongoing conversation with my dad about art and films and life and love,” said the younger Nichols, “and here was an opportunity to take all those amazing years around the dinner table and actually channel it into a specific work.”

Two Night Stand” marks Nichols’ debut feature effort, having mainly worked on music videos throughout his career. Producer Ruben Fleischer, whose directing credits include “Zombieland” and “Gangster Squad,” felt he was being overshadowed as a »

Warner Bros Registered Domains For Shazam, Wonder Woman and Aquaman Movies

2 September 2014 7:04 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

There have been a lot of rumors about Warner Bros' upcoming slate of superhero films. The studio has yet to confirm anything, but there have been promises that an official announcement will soon be made. It seems that Warner Bros wasn't lying, because we're now seeing a plan being executed in the form of registering domain names. Tech Times has learned that the studio just registered JusticeLeagueFilm.com, ShazamMovie.com, WonderWomanTheMovie.com, and AquamanMovie.com. We already know that "Justice League" is in development. "Wonder Woman" is all but greenlit and Dwayne Johnson has been strongly hinting that "Shazam" is in the works. And just recently, it was reported that the studio hired Will Beall (Gangster Squad) and Kurt Johnstad (300) to write separate "Aquaman" scripts. »

Confidential or Gangster Squad, the two noir films starring Gosling and Crowe, but seeing as the movie is »

8 Stars Toronto Could Do Without at Tiff

2 September 2014 2:10 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's no secret that stars aren't always on their best behaviour at all times. After all, when the whole world worships you, it can pretty easily go straight to your head. It can make you believe that the same rules of etiquette (and even the law) don't apply to you. You're above it.

We've all heard whispers of Mariah's demands for white furniture, Beyonce's insistence on brand-new toilet seats and Britney's strict orders for Cheetos and cheeseburgers. But diva behavior isn't limited to divas. A handful of actors have infamously worn out their welcome on the Toronto Film Festival's red carpet with their diva antics and entitled behaviour. And hey, we're Canadian; that kind of attitude doesn't really fly at the film festival renowned for bringing stars and regular folks together to bask in a mutual love of cinema.

While most stars are nothing but gracious at Tiff, there are a few whose ridiculous demands, »

History’s Houdini Releases Classic Posters With Adrien Brody

1 September 2014 5:31 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Starting tonight, History is bringing you the story of Houdini’s life. Starring Adrien Brody, the 2-night special covers a wide variety of the components that made up the multi-faceted man, and it’s something you don’t want to miss.

In the spirit of the History Channel and, you know, history, they’ve released some very cool posters which put Adrien Brody into some of the classic promotional posters used to promote Houdini himself. You probably recognize at least one of these, and the changes are wonderfully subtle.

Give them a look, and be sure to tune in.

 

 

Houdini, a new two-night scripted miniseries airing on September 1 and 2 at 9 p.m. Et/Pt on History®, is the story of a man who can defy death, but who really was the man behind the escapes? The event miniseries follows the epic tales of Harry Houdini as he emerges as America’s first bonafide world-renowned superstar. »

‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Star Josh Brolin On Why You Should “Never Write Anybody Off”

20 August 2014 8:08 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Josh Brolin‘s performance in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For isn’t wildly dissimilar to his work in Men in Black III. They’re very different films and performances, of course, but both prequels feature Brolin inheriting a role from another actor. Brolin eerily embodied Tommy Lee Jones as Agent K, while in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For he’s channeling Clive Owen’s work as Dwight McCarthy from the first movie. This is Dwight before he had to change his face, which, in case you haven’t read Frank Miller‘s comics, is why Owen isn’t back playing the character. Whether Josh Brolin studied Clive Owen’s performance never came up in our wide-ranging conversation with the actor, who’s clearly pleased with both the film and his performance. With the exception of Labor Day – a film I’ll readily go to bat for — it’s the first time since True Grit »

‘Aquaman’ Movie Reels In Two Writers

17 August 2014 3:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

To say that there has been quite a large amount of hype surrounding superhero franchises lately, would be an understatement larger than the Incredible Hulk’s biceps. With Marvel Studios’ cinematic future mapped out farther than we could even imagine, Warner Bros surprised (and delighted) movie fans earlier this month, with the long overdue announcement of a catalogue of DC Comics film adaptions.

Although the titles of these films remain a mystery, we can quite easily make a few educated guesses as to what they may be. Based on the numerous cameo appearances lined up for 2016′s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, it’s long been assumed that Wonder Woman and Aquaman will receive their own spin-off films after Justice League hits theatres. Jason Momoa has still not been officially confirmed for the role of Aquaman in Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel sequel, however at this point it »

Another Sign Warner Bros. Doesn’t Know What They’re Doing with Their Superheroes

13 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Warners has hired competing screenwriters for their post-Dawn of Justice Aquaman movie. That’s super crappy for the writers (and really all writers), but it’s also another sign that the studio hasn’t planned out their break-neck push into connected superhero universes beyond cameo (and subplot) introductions for a shotgun blast of potential Justice League members in a movie supposedly focused on Batman and Superman. Drew McWeeny compared the process to a reality show (picture an anthropomorphic script doing a rose-less walk of shame), and I agree 100%. While far from conclusive, the method points to another shaky element of Warners’ planning. Specifically, that they have no firm planning. Meanwhile, they’re pointing their bat to the bleachers. To be fair, while they’ve hired differently-skilled (yet pulpy) writers in Will Beall (Gangster Squad) and Kurt Johnstad (300), it’s unlikely that their personal styles will stray too far from each other.

2 Writers Hired to Write 2 Different Aquaman Movies

13 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Warner Bros. is wasting no time in trying to do with DC what Marvel has been able to do with its movies. The Hollywood Reporter reports two writers, Will Beall (Gangster Squad) and Kurt Johnstad (300: Rise of an Empire), are set to take on scripting an Aquaman movie. Here's the fun part: They aren't working together. Each will be writing a separate movie, and Warner Bros. will pick the best one. It's a script-off! There is no exact date set for Aquaman, but Warner Bros. has stuck its flag in many dates over the next few years, so this might be coming as early as summer 2016. This news comes after speculation about Jason Momoa's casting made its way around the internet again earlier this week. That still has yet to be confirmed. It's almost like the producers are leaking that rumor just to gain a negotiating upper hand »

Warner Bros. Comissions Two Different Screenwriters for 'Aquaman' Movie Scripts

13 August 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As Warner Bros. attempts to fill out their slate of DC Comics films, we can now rest assured that one of them will be an Aquaman feature as the studio has set Will Beall (Gangster Squad) and Kurt Johnstad (300: Rise of an Empire, Act of Valor) to write competing scripts for a feature film based on the underwater superhero. Apparently both scripts will be developed at the same time until one is decided to be the best. Of course, given we're talking about Beall and Johnstad here I think we're looking for the script that's the lesser of two evils as neither has shown any real talent for screenwriting as of yet. At this time, it seems safe to assume Jason Momoa would be playing the title character as he has all but been confirmed to be playing the character in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. »

More Proof That the Aquaman Movie Is Going to Happen

13 August 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Warner Bros. is going all in on the fishy DC character Aquaman by hiring two separate writers to write scripts for the film. That's right: scripts, plural.

Will Beall (""Gangster Squad") and Kurt Johnstad ("300," "Act of Valor," "300: Rise of an Empire") will be writing separate scripts for Aquaman's big-screen debut. It's not quite clear how this will work; will WB cobble together a Frankenstein script from the best bits of each, or what? The character already has some image problems - he can talk to other sea critters, big whoop! -- but he's also got some staunch defenders.

One of those defenders is Zack Snyder, the director of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and other upcoming Justice League movies. Snyder apparently called in to a radio show to defend this fictional comic book character to a couple of snarky DJs.
