The Hunger Games’ Amandla Stenberg to headline Ya adaptation Darkest Minds

27 September 2016 5:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hunger Games star Amandla Stenberg is set to headline the Ya adaptation Darkest Minds, which is based upon Alexandra Bracken’s book trilogy and is being directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson (Kung Fu Panda 3).

Darkest Minds takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where a pandemic has killed most of American’s children, with some of the survivors developing superpowers and finding themselves places in internment camps after being deemed too dangerous for society.

THR reports that Stenberg – who portrayed the character of Rue in the first Hunger Games movie – is set to play Ruby Daly, a 16-year-old with telekinetic powers, who escapes her camp and joins a group of teens on the run from the government.

The project will mark the live-action debut for director Nelson, with Chad Hodge (Wayward Pines) writing the script and and Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) producing.

The UK has chosen its favorite book-to-film adaptations

27 September 2016 3:39 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

To the surprise of no one, Harry Potter has just topped a UK list of fan's favorite book-to-film adaptations. How did your favorites fare? J.K. Rowling's adaptations also topped a similar list last year. Considering she's British and writer of one of the biggest franchises in history, I would assume Rowling's work will easily continue taking the top spot for years to come. Unless they decide to do a reboot which somehow turns out terrible. Let's not think about that. According to The Guardian, 32% of 2,000 cinemagoers put Harry Potter at the top of their lists. It's a relatively small sample of people living in the UK, but something tells me it would stay on top even if it were larger. Here's the full list as they voted: 1. The Harry Potter series (Jk Rowling) 2. A Christmas Carol (Charles Dickens) 3. The Shawshank Redemption (Stephen King) 4. The Lord of the Rings saga »

Woody Harrelson To Be Lost In London For Directorial Debut

27 September 2016 1:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Woody Harrelson is an actor that has been captivating audiences for the better part of three decades, and in that time, we’ve witnessed some truly stellar performances ranging from a cripplingly polite blind man opposite Will Smith in Seven Pounds to The Hunger Games franchise, where Harrelson brought the inimitable character of Haymitch Abernathy to the big screen like few could.

Adding another proverbial feather to his cap, Screen Daily brings word that Oscar-nominated star is primed to make his directorial debut with Lost in London. Little is known about the project at this early stage, only that it will be rooted in the English capital. Will Harrelson also headline said feature? Who knows, but you can readily expect that we’ll be keeping track of the actor’s feature film debut as it develops.

Lionsgate Keeping Hope Alive For “Possibility” Of More ‘Twilight’ Movies

27 September 2016 12:29 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With “The Hunger Games” over (for now) and the “Divergent” series collapsing like a wet fart after too many sliders at White Castle, Lionsgate find themselves without a Ya franchise at the moment. The studio sparked the whole craze with the “Twilight” films, wringing the most out of it they could with four movies. And course, any studio executives worth their salt are going to find a way to open that money faucet back up if they can, and Lionsgate is no different, hoping that one day, they can excite Twihards all over again with more movies.

Free State of Jones Review

27 September 2016 9:10 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Filmmaker Gary Ross has a tendency to deliver consistently solid work but as an artist he is far from prolific. Ross hadn’t called action on a film since The Hunger Games in 2012 and before that it was Seabiscuit back in 2003. But his work has always resounded as solid and with essence. For his latest, […]

Twilight: Lionsgate leaves door open for more movies

26 September 2016 10:31 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Sep 27, 2016

Divergent is definitely heading to television, Lionsgate confirms, and it also admits the more Twilight films are a "possibility"...

With the Divergent series faltering (more on that below), Lionsgate’s hopes of having a third massive young adult movie franchise have hit problems. Still, there’s continued chatter about more The Hunger Games movies, with a prequel the most likely. And then there’s Twilight, the series that woke Hollywood studios up to the idea of young adult movie franchises (although Harry Potter can't have hurt).

Not surprisingly, then, Lionsgate co-chief Patrick Wachsberger has held the door open for more Twilight movies – but insists that that author Stephenie Meyer holds the keys to them.

Chatting to Screen Daily, Wachsberger said that “it’s a possibility. Not a certainty, but it’s a possibility”, with regards to future Twilight movies. “It’s about Stephenie. If she wants to »

Woody Harrelson on 'Lbj', Trump and Spandex

26 September 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Lbj star talks politics, playing chess with Václav Havel and the possibility of donning Lycra.

Woody Harrelson arrives at Zurich Film Festival (Sept 22 - Oct 2) this week following strong notices for his portrayal of former Us president Lyndon Baines Johnson in Rob Reiner’s biopic Lbj, which debuted at Toronto International Film Festival.

The two-time Oscar nominee was in typically refreshing form when Screen caught up with him to talk about the film’s resonance with current political events in the Us, interacting with Bryan Cranston and the actor’s plans to direct a movie in London.

Screen: Congratulations on this performance, Woody. What drew you to the part?

The main thing was that I wanted to work with Rob. I think he’s one of our great filmmakers. It was Joey Hartstone’s script, too.

I wasn’t really a big fan of Lbj because of Vietnam, like a lot of people. But the more »

18 Unnecessary Movie Reboots

25 September 2016 2:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The big knock on Hollywood today is that it is bereft of ideas. That the best the copious amounts of writers and idea people can do is just rehash old formulas. When that fails they simply reboot movies. And there are a lot of reboots still coming, if you believe IMDb.

Sure, there's a lot films made from beloved literary properties (Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Twilight, et al), but where are the truly original ideas? It used to be that you could cite indy films as a place where those ideas thrived. Sadly, the independent world has become a way station where actors reboot their careers, or the films made are merely lower budget versions of what is already in the theaters. (In most cases, sometimes indy films manage to surprise and inspire.)

All of this brings me back to the idea of reboots. Google tells us that a »

Patrick Wachsberger talks franchises, highlights and Polanski

23 September 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: “We’re going through a sea change,” Lionsgate executive says of the film business today.

This Sunday, industry veteran and sales supremo Patrick Wachsberger, co-chairman, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, will be honoured at the Zurich Film Festival with the event’s Game Changer Award, which is bestowed on an individual who has been able to “successfully navigate through the aggressively changing entertainment landscape.”

Wachsberger’s more than 30-year navigation of those choppy waters has seen him play a pivotal role in two billion-dollar franchises, multiple Oscar and Palme d’Or campaigns and two of the industry’s most successful independent film companies of recent decades.

However, the film business is more unpredictable than ever claims the former Summit boss, who spoke to Screen shortly before the surprise news that fellow Lionsgate co-chair Rob Friedman is to leave the company.

My Ifp Film Week Experience, Part 2: The Pitch Perfect(ed)

22 September 2016 9:44 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Read Part One of Isabel Sandoval’s Ifp Film Week Diary, “The Female Gaze, Anyone?”, here. Forget Project Greenlight. If anyone wants to do a reality series based on the No Borders pitch meetings, it would be a more grizzled Swingers meets The Hunger Games — but with lookbooks subbing for bows and arrows. The thing is, I’m sure somebody actually used that logline for their own project. The proceedings have a jovially survivalist element to them. While my No Borders project Lingua Franca is my third feature, it’s my first U.S. production so Film Week doubles as Indie Film Financing […] »

Under The Shadow (Iran/UK/Jordan) Opening Gala Film & Special Presentation

We open the festival with the supernatural tale, Under The Shadow. The scary Sundance sensation has drawn comparisons with our previous festival gem, The Babadook. After her husband leaves to fight in the war with Iraq, an Iranian mother and her young daughter are left to cope by themselves in an increasingly empty apartment building. It’s soon clear that someone or something else has moved into the building with them – an evil spirit who with a sinister agenda of its own. One the scariest films of the year, »

Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 8 – A Journey’s End? Review

22 September 2016 6:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With its original five-episode length extended to eight, Minecraft: Story Mode has cemented its position as Telltale’s longest-running individual season. And while I was quite fond of the initial four-episode introductory arc despite having no experience with the source material, the series’ shift to more self-contained installments from Episode 5 onward have caused it to stumble a bit. It’s become more difficult to get invested in Jesse’s world-hopping adventures when the conflict keeps changing and the recurring characters get little time to shine.

The season finale, A Journey’s End?, doesn’t do quite enough to avoid these same flaws, but at the same time, it gave me an experience much more akin to the series’ better days. There’s a bigger sense of focus to its plot, great pacing, and some of the best action scenes we’ve seen yet. If you’ve stuck with the series up to this point, »

Following their triumphant Emmy wins Sunday night, “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson” producers Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson have inked a new overall deal with FX Productions, Variety has learned.
