Jennifer Lawrence reunites with Mockingjay writer for Spielberg drama

2 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jennifer Lawrence will reunite with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 co-writer Peter Craig for Steven Spielberg's upcoming war drama.

Spielberg is currently developing an adaptation of war photographer Lynsey Addario's memoir It's What I Do for the big screen.

Lawrence is currently attached to play Addario, whose travels into war zones led her to being kidnapped in Libya in 2011.

Addario is one of the few female photographers to travel into war zones in Afghanistan to document on-going crises in the region.

Spielberg has turned to screenwriter Craig to adapt the memoir, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Craig penned crime drama The Town and the forthcoming Mel Gibson thriller Blood Father aside from his work on the Hunger Games series.

Spielberg could begin work on his adaptation of It's What I Do after completing his newly-announced science fiction film Ready Player One.

Macross Cynicism Pause | Sony Pushes for Robotech Movie

5 hours ago | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

I’m half Japanese. I’m an american. I’ve lived in Japan for a lot of my earlier childhood and 1/4 of my life. I have land there. I knew ramen was  life since the ’80s, and not cheap college student menu before U.S. hipsters of the past several years did. I even rocked a bento strong in elementary school, some of which were Macross branded. I was introduced to Macross through Robotech though, as I suspect most people in the U.S. were, but in my years in Japan, I’ve never come across anyone (the count is officially zero) who seem to care more about how Robotech came into being  as I have in english speaking messaegeboards in the 21st century. They have theirs, we have ours. As a child of both worlds it was never really a conflict, so it’s always puzzled me why it »

The Hunger Games Scribe Peter Craig To Write Steven Spielberg’s It’s What I Do

6 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From out of nowhere screenwriter Peter Craig has emerged as one of the industry’s buzziest scribes. Craig has racked up a solid resume of credits including Ben Affleck’s The Town, both instalments of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay and the upcoming Gerard Butler thriller Hunter Killer. For his next project he is set to reunite with his Mockingjay star Jennifer Lawrence, as Craig is now attached to pen It’s What I Do.

Based on the life of war photographer Lynsey Addario, the title of the movie is taken from her memoir It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War. Warner Bros. snapped up the rights prior to the book’s release and started to assemble a preliminary team to bring Addario’s emotionally-driven tale to the big screen.

Thus far the studio has struck gold. Andrew Lazar, whose experience on memoir adaptations »

25 March 2015 4:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Three new releases debuted in the top three spots on the national home video sales charts for the week ending March 22, led by the 20th Century Fox-distributed “Penguins of Madagascar,” from DreamWorks Animation.

Gehenna: An Indie Horror Film (with Practical Effects) that Matters

24 March 2015 11:57 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

At MoreHorror.com, we see a lot of horror films seeking funding through Kickstarter. Here’s one that caught our eye. We think this is a film that actually matters to the horror community.

Hiroshi Katagiri is the mind behind “Gehenna: Where Death Lives”. Hiroshi has had a stellar career in makeup and special effects, and is known especially for sculpture, which is the art that “creates the creature”. He’s done three films with Spielberg, worked on multiple films with Guillermo del Toro, and his 39 film credits also include Wolverine, Pirates of the Caribbean, Alien v Predator Requiem, Cabin in the Woods, and The Hunger Games. His TV credits include being part of an Emmy winning team for The X-Files. He is also a true fan of horror and suspense, and has written and directed several acclaimed horror shorts.

But what caught our eye was his view on horror. »

24 March 2015 1:16 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal’s “Furious 7” is expected to set box office records when it opens on April 3, with fans eager to flock to multiplexes to bid farewell to Paul Walker. But the film’s star and producer, Vin Diesel, predicts that “Furious 7’s” success won’t be limited to the number of tickets it sells. He says the film will also sweep a certain 2016 awards ceremony.

“Universal is going to have the biggest movie in history with this movie,” Diesel said in a lengthy interview with Variety for this week’s cover story. “It will probably win best picture at the Oscars, unless the Oscars don’t want to be relevant ever.”

Diesel took a breath, before offering his prediction for a second time. “This will win best picture,” Diesel said. “There is nothing that will ever come close to the power of this thing.”

Diesel said he was very pleased with the final movie, »

Box Office Democracy: The Divergent Series: Insurgent

24 March 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

There’s a murkiness to The Divergent Series that is utterly baffling. Does it want to be The Hunger Games? While the obvious answer to that question would be “yes” I’m growing less and less sure by the moment. It feels like there was a meeting at some point during the production process where it was decided that they probably couldn’t reach the popularity or, frankly, the quality of The Hunger Games but that they could probably make a great deal of money by making a comparable product. Divergent is the result of that cynical take on filmmaking. Where Catching Fire brought in a new director and turned that franchise from a quick cash-in to a legitimate statement piece of media, Insurgent seems content to collapse under the weight of its own narrative and slouch toward the end of the series confident that it won’t be abandoned »

Arnold Schwarzenegger talks Terminator: Genisys and his character

24 March 2015 11:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Whether you want to poke fun at the title, the retconning of its story or Arnold Schwarzenegger playing an “ageing Terminator”, Terminator: Genisys has had an uphill struggle to get people on its side.

One of the items in that list has been the story of the movie, which many have been confused by as it seems to reset the Terminator timeline. But what does this mean for Schwarzenegger’s iconic character?

“The story has changed, so I am like a combination of the characters who you have seen in the past,” he told Empire Online. “He is a powerful and potentially evil kind of machine that can be very destructive if I see that a there is danger from me or for the victory against the machines. I can switch over to being the protector of Sarah Connor. It depends where we are in this storyline.”

Jennifer Lawrence Says X-Men: Apocalypse is Her Last X-Men Film

24 March 2015 4:22 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Jennifer Lawrence currently stars in two major franchises, "The Hunger Games" and "X-Men." The last installment of "The Hunger Games" will be released later this year, and now comes word from the actress, she plans to leave the "X-Men" series after next year's "X-Men: Apocalypse." "It is my last one, actually. Yes," Lawrence said of "X-Men: Apocalypse." She didn't explain her reason for refusing to reprise the Mystique role, but the film may be the perfect way for her to exist the franchise. Writer Simon Kinberg previously said that "X-Men: Apocalypse" will "complete the trilogy we began with 'First Class' . to complete the stories of young Raven, young Hank, younger Charles and Erik." Meanwhile, lots of new characters are being introduced, including young versions of Nightcrawler, Cyclops, Storm and Jean Grey. In other words, it's possible that the franchise may not only lose Lawrence, but also James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult and Michael Fassbender. »

Jennifer Lawrence Leaving X-Men After Apocalypse

24 March 2015 2:58 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

After all the time-travelling shenanigans Days Of Future Past, the next instalment in the X-Men franchise looks to be starting from scratch – and it’s also going to be losing one of its biggest stars. Along with totally recasting a lot of its principal actors, the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse will also serve as a swansong for Jennifer Lawrence.

The Hunger Games actress has played the shape-shiftng siren Mystique since prequel film First Class, but it looks like she’s about to hang up her…er…well, she doesn’t tend to wear a whole lot in these films. “It is my last one, actually,” she said when asked about the next part of the X-Men franchise.

Given that, not long before the release of Days Of Future Past (in which her character plays a key role) there were rumours that Lawrence might star in a Mystique spin-off film, »
