Check out this bad ass custom made flame thrower that’s secured with metal grips under my forearm giving me more leverage to drive my motorcycle with one arm – and kill evil shit with my other,” said Johnson. “Apparently it’s also a good night to burn the hell outta my arm. Again.”

ABC Takes a Back Seat as Academy Calls the Shots for Oscar Show Again

9 November 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When ABC extended its deal to broadcast the Academy Awards through 2028, it emerged from the August negotiations touting greater creative input in the telecast. Most years, the Oscars are ABC’s highest-rated programming event, but the Motion Picture Academy has long seen fit to give its broadcast partner as little say in the show’s production as possible. So when Disney/ABC Television Group chief Ben Sherwood said at a Paley Center Q&A in September that the network now has greater sway over the show — and that he was hopeful its late-night star, Jimmy Kimmel, would be named host of the 89th Academy Awards in February — he sounded like a man holding a full house.

Turns out it was a losing hand. As Variety first reported, the Academy named Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd — two respected film veterans with no experience in live television — to produce the upcoming Oscars. Variety »

Fox 2000 Developing Isaac Adamson’s Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Helios’ (Exclusive)

10 October 2016 10:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox 2000 has bought Isaac Adamson’s science-fiction thriller “Helios” and has set the project up with Josh Bratman’s Immersive Pictures to produce.

Shane Munguia is co-producing and Gillian Bohrer is the executive overseeing for Fox 2000. Nikki Ramey was also instrumental in obtaining the project. Film details are being kept under wraps.

Adamson is currently adapting his Billy Chaka novel “Tokyo Suckerpunch” for Lionsgate, a decade after being set up at Sony. Adamson has also written “Hokkaido Popsicle,” “Dreaming Pachinko,” “Kinki Lullaby,” and “Complication.”

His script about Michael Jackson’s pet chimpanzee “Bubbles,” told from the chimp’s perspective, received the top number of votes of the 100 screenplays named to last year’s Black List.

Bratman has executive producing credits on “The Sitter,” “Fright Night,” and “Priest.” He signed a first-look deal last year with Sony Pictures.

Adamson is repped by CAA, manager Lee Stobby, and attorney Michael Schenkman.

‘Coming Through The Rye’ Trailer: Alex Wolff Searches For J.D. Salinger In Coming-Of-Age Film

22 September 2016 1:21 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“I felt like I was reading about someone who understand me. Not Huck Finn, not Tom Sawyer, but Holden Caulfield,” says Alex Wolff’s character Jamie Schwartz in the new trailer for “Coming Through the Rye.”

Written and directed by James Sadwith, who based the film on his own real life experience with J.D. Salinger, the drama is set in 1969 and follows the 16-year-old outcast who finds solace in “The Catcher In The Rye” and deeply identifies with its protagonist. He decides to adapt the book into a play but before moving forward seeks the approval of the author himself, who is portrayed by Chris Cooper.

‘Where The Wild Things’ Are Star Max Records & Christopher Lloyd Get Creepy In First Trailer For ‘I Am Not A Serial Killer’

7 July 2016 12:03 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s been a hot minute since we last saw Max Records. The “Where The Wild Things Are” star has kept a low profile since 2011’s unfortunately bland “The Sitter,” and it seemed like the child star might’ve given up on the whole acting thing. But that’s not the case. Rather, like several growing child stars before him, […]

15 Great Ways Filmmakers Found Their Independence In The Last 20 Years

Subverting the Unexpected

At the end of the 20th century, Bobcat Goldthwait’s legacy read like a cheap joke: He was a screaming comedian from the eighties best known as Zed in the “Police Academy” franchise who once tried at his hand at directing a movie (“Shakes the Clown”). Those achievements barely skimmed the surface of Goldthwait’s ability, as the ensuing years made clear, when Goldthwait completely transformed his career into one of the most provocative American filmmakers working today. With the microbudget “Sleeping Dogs Lie” (aka “Stay”), Goldthwait showed his potential to funnel taboo subject matters into oddly touching, relatable human dramas, a proclivity he kicked up to a whole new level with the subversive black comedy “World’s Greatest Dad,” which features Robin Williams in one of his all-time great roles.

Goldthwait has kept innovating, with each new movie offering a fresh perspective on the naive assumptions »

Film Review: ‘I Am Not a Serial Killer’

29 March 2016 2:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Suzanne Collins famously stumbled on her inspiration for “The Hunger Games” trilogy while channel surfing between newscasts of war zones and reality competition shows. In the case of “I Am Not a Serial Killer,” based on the first book in Dan Wells’ Ya series, it’s not hard to imagine its author slipping into a similar fever dream after binge-watching all of “Dexter,” “Fargo” and “Six Feet Under” in one go. The tale of a likable teenager, raised by a mortician family, whose own nascent sociopathic tendencies make him a perfect amateur sleuth when a serial killer strikes his folksy Midwestern town, director Billy O’Brien’s film adaptation strikes a tone that’s far more unique and endearing than that premise might imply, helped in no small part by a sharp-witted performance from former child star Max Records. A strange, clumsily handled third-act turn undoes some of its charm, »

‘Adventures in Babysitting’ Trailer: The 80s Favorite Gets a Disney Channel Makeover

13 February 2016 11:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Even though the David Gordon Green comedy The Sitter was basically a raunchy, darker version of Adventures in Babysitting, the family comedy favorite from 1987 is getting a more official remake by way of The Disney Channel. This time instead of one babysitter played by Elisabeth Shue forced to take some kids out for a […]

Kylie Bunbury to Star in Fox Drama About Mlb's First Female Pitcher

18 January 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Kylie Bunbury has been cast as the lead in "Pitch," Fox's just-picked-up drama about the major leagues' first pitcher.  The series will focus on a young female baseball player as she becomes the female Jackie Robinson. Since the series' creators and EPs are so far all male, we hope they recruit several female writers to tell this story of a woman challenging expectations in a male-dominated field  -- and almost certainly battling sexism along the way. Bunbury's previous credits include "The Sitter," as well as the TV series "Under the Dome," "Tut" and "Twisted." [via THR]
