This holiday season, Disney’s “Saving Mr. Banks” and Fox’s “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” are testing the boundaries of what it means to be an all-audience film, as studios strive to strike the right balance between adult drama and family entertainment.
But the challenge in attracting parents, teens and kids, by no means an easy feat for any movie, is made even greater for these outliers, given that there are already some high-profile family films in the crowded Thanksgiving-to-Christmas corridor, including Disney’s animated musical, “Frozen” and Warner Bros.’ “Hobbit” sequel, “The Desolation of Smaug,” which has an added fanboy component driven by premium large formats, including Imax.
This year, there are seven movies with predominantly family appeal that will bow throughout this month and next, compared with only five in 2012, and 10 each in 2010 and 2006.
The preponderance of family product during those two years caused cannibalization at the box office. »

Football: England vs Germany
Jingoistic tabloid headlines at the ready, ze Germans are in town. This friendly marks the first meeting of the two nations since the 2010 World Cup, where Joachim Löw's side handed England a 4-1 humbling. Three years later, this remains an impressive German team, technically assured and very, very fast. Roy Hodgson's side, though, has been impressive recently, and in Gerrard, Rooney and Sturridge contains three of European football's form players. Adrian Chiles presents. Gwilym Mumford

If you’ve clicked into this story, then you’re like me and love a bit of Cameron Crowe movie brilliance. The Californian-born writer, director and producer has had an almost flawless run of movies since Say Anything in 1989 and recently brought to the screen the real-life story of Benjamin Mee in We Bought A Zoo, based on a Dartmoor Zoo that I used to visit as a kid. Heck, I haven’t even mentioned Almost Famous, Jerry Maguire and Singles, well…
Anyway, his new project is currently filming and goes by the name of ‘Untitled Cameron Crowe Hawaii Project‘ but we’ve got the first image today of stars Emma Stone and Bradley Cooper taking to the air. The film also stars the legend that is Bill Murray, plus John Krasinski, Danny McBride, Rachel McAdams, Jay Baruchel and Alec Baldwin. I’m a bit bloody excited!

As many of you already know, I adore Cameron Crowe. I connect with his films on every level. We Bought A Zoo didn't quite resonate as much with me though I think it deserves a second watch. I felt the same way about Elizabethtown until I gave it another viewing. The directors next currently known as "Untitled Hawaii Project" began production on September 26th with Eric Gautier (Into The Wild) serving as cinematographer. The story written by Crowe centers on "A celebrated »

Cameron Crowe's upcoming Untitled Hawaii Project already has an all star cast including Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Jay Baruchel , Danny McBride and Bill Murray all starring and today another name has been announced, with The Office actor John Krasinski the latest addition to the romantic comedy.
The film follows a "defence contractor played by Bradley Cooper who falls for an Air Force pilot (Emma Stone) after he's assigned to oversee the launch of a weapons satellite from Hawaii." Krasinski will play a military man married to McAdams, who is Cooper's ex-wife.
Crowe's last film We Bought a Zoo was saccharin sweet but it was charming and moving and hopefully the Untitled Hawaii Project will show his wit and intelligence once again. »

Jim Halpert, military man? It could happen, thanks to Cameron Crowe.
"The Office" star (and soon-to-be father) John Krasinski is in talks to join the cast of Crowe's latest film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The untitled movie stars Bradley Cooper as a defense contractor who falls in love with an Air Force pilot (Emma Stone) while working on the launch of a military satellite.
The already star-studded cast also includes Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, Alec Baldwin, Jay Baruchel and Danny McBride. If a deal works out, Krasinski would play a military man who's married to McAdams' character -- who, incidentally, is the ex-wife of Cooper's character.
Krasinski and Crowe ("Almost Famous," "We Bought a Zoo") have never worked together before, but it seems like a pretty natural fit. Krasinski has donned a military uniform once before in his movie career for a co-starring role in "Jarhead."

Based on an old, previously unproduced screenplay by writer/director Crowe – Deep Tiki - this project will mark the first collaboration between Murray and the respected director. The re-vamped, re-worked story focuses on a washed up military contractor (Bradley Cooper), who is sent to Hawaii on a highly classified weapons satellite launch mission. On the island, events are complicated by a ‘talking computer’, and the presence of ‘mystical island forces’. He crosses paths with an old flame (Rachel McAdams), and crosses swords with an Air Force pilot (Emma Stone), with whom he must ultimately team with to scupper the mission.

Who doesn’t love Cameron Crowe? The talented American director has made his mark with a filmography of well-received, original, character-driven movies, many positively stunning in the pure sense of joy and optimism that they communicate. Lack of cynicism is a rare gift in Hollywood indeed.
The director is currently hard at work on his latest film, an untitled romantic comedy starring Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Danny McBride and Alec Baldwin. That’s quite an impressive cast, but it doesn’t end there as today we’re hearing that the project has picked up yet another star in the form of This Is The End‘s Jay Baruchel.
The Hawaii-set film, based on an original screenplay by Crowe, will apparently center on a military contractor (Cooper) who recruits an Air Force pilot (Stone) to prevent a top-secret military launch he’s supposed to be helping to facilitate. Inevitably, »

There’s no denying that I’m a sucker for a Cameron Crowe movie, he seems to find those moments of life in the vein of our very own Richard Curtis but with an American twist. He’s now announced via TheUncool that his as-yet Untitled production is filming in Hawaii and will star Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams with additional rumours of Alec Baldwin and Danny McBride. So I’m already convinced, it’s that simple.
For those of you unfamilar with Crowe, he’s the man behind Almost Famous, Say Anything, Jerry Maguire, Vanilla Sky and more recently the charming, based-on-real-life-story, We Bought A Zoo. This one is him reworking an older project called Deep Tiki and sees him team-up (very interestingly) with Into The Wild cinematographer Eric Gautier and goes with this official synopsis:

Rather than an official “start of production” news release, Crowe simply posted a photo of a clapboard on his official site The Uncool with the following missive:
“The Untitled Hawaii project is officially underway. As you can see above, the production began filming on September 26th with Eric Gautier (“Motorcycle Diaries,” “Into the Wild”) as Cinematographer. Stay tuned as we begin to share images and much more from the set very soon. Mahalo!”
Crowe shot his last film, “We Bought a Zoo, »

Paul Greengrass’ true-life heart-stopper Captain Phillips may be opening next Friday, October 11, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to see the film a whole six days early – at least, that’s what Sony Pictures seems to think. This Saturday, the studio will sneak preview the film in around 800 theaters around the country (you can see exactly where right here), and while Captain Phillips is already one of my favorite films of the year, I’m not wholly convinced it necessitates a sneak preview. The sneak preview model isn’t a totally out of the box method of marketing, though it’s not utilized too often. In 2011, Fox launched weekend sneak previews for its We Bought a Zoo, positioning the family-friendly film for a Thanksgiving weekend release without actually having to change its release date. Last year, The Guilt Trip got its own sneak weekend, complete with a special video Q&A with stars »

Are you ready for Cruella de Vil's side of the story?
The "101 Dalmatians" baddie, whose morbid taste in fur coats had a whole host of dogs nipping at her ankles, is getting the live-action treatment from Disney and "Cinderella" writer Aline Brosh McKenna. It will be interesting to see how the chain-smoking, fur-loving villainess gets transformed for the 21st Century; at the very least, she'd have to ditch her cigs to retain a Disney-friendly PG rating.
Brosh McKenna also wrote the screenplays for "Annie," "We Bought a Zoo," and "The Devil Wears Prada," among others. Given Miranda Priestly's chilly demeanor, striking hair, and haute taste, is it any wonder that we're picturing Meryl Streep taking on the role of De Vil? She would look fabulous with that two-toned coif Cruella favors.
Glenn Close first brought Cruella to live-action life in 1996's "101 Dalmatians," and then again in "102 Dalmatians." She is an exec producer on the project. »

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Disney is moving forward with a solo film for Cruella de Vil, aptly titled Cruella. The studio has chosen Aline Brosh McKenna (We Bought A Zoo, The Devil Wears Prada, 27 Dresses) has been hired to pen the script.
de Vil is the villain in Dodie Smith’s book The One Hundred and One Dalmatians. Disney adapted the book into the 1961 animated classic 101 Dalmatians and the live action 1996 film, which was followed by the 2000 sequel 102 Dalmatians. Glenn Close played de Vil in both live action films, but I’m guessing Disney is going to want someone a little younger this time around.
There’s no word on a director or casting, but that will come together once the script is finished.

It seems the old school, formulaic rom-com, fodder for many a Saturday afternoon watching cable on the couch, is becoming a thing of the past. The latest crop of romantic comedies have more than a meet cute and a big kiss at the end – they’re more honest, more crass, and more serious than ever before. Case in point: Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s porn addiction saga Don Jon, which opens today, and follows a recent trend in the rom-com genre – a protagonist with a very serious problem.
Even fun movies are a little darker lately, and maybe that’s just a »

Ellen Page is in talks to take on the role of British spy Tara Chace in an adaptation of the graphic novel series "Queen & Country." Fans of her "X-Men" character Kitty Pryde have been clamoring for the petite star to get her own major action flick, and goodness knows the comic book genre could use more high-profile ladies kicking butt -- is it possible Tara Chace is the big-screen heroine we've been waiting for?
According to "Variety," the idea to give Page her own franchise has been cooking at Fox for a while, and "[t]his property gives Page that and could do for Page what the Jason Bourne franchise did to lift Matt Damon's profile." That's an interesting comparison, given Damon's career trajectory: Like Page, he has the dramatic chops for work like "Behind the Candelabra" and "We Bought a Zoo," and the action abilities for big films like "Elysium" and "The Bourne Ultimatum. »

Fans of Joe Cornish.s urban alien invasion flick Attack the Block have been waiting patiently for the British filmmaker.s sophomore directorial effort, and while it looked like he was going to be adapting Royden Lepp.s acclaimed graphic novel Rust as his next project, he dropped out a few weeks ago with no rhyme nor reason. According to TheWrap, his vacancy will soon be filled, as Rio director Carlos Saldanha is in negotiations to take over the reins. While Saldanha is a more established filmmaker, albeit within the animation genre, I can.t help but feel slightly disappointed by this decision. Should he take the job, he.d be directing this Genre Films production from a screenplay written oddly enough by Aline Brosh McKenna, who has written such films as The Devil Wears Prada, We Bought a Zoo and the upcoming Annie remake. Saldanha got his start co-directing »
