John Crowley Eyed to Direct Adaptation of ‘The Goldfinch’

20 July 2016 9:05 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

John Crowley is in talks to direct the highly anticipated adaptation of Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel “The Goldfinch.”

Warner Bros. acquired the rights to the sought after novel in 2014 and tapped Peter Straughan to adapt the script. With a script now in, Crowley soon rose to the top of the list of people to helm the project and insiders now say an offer has been put on the table.

The story, which takes place over two decades, follows a 13-year-old boy who loses his mother in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He survives the explosion, steals the Carel Fabritius painting the Goldfinch, gets taken in by an Upper East Side family and eventually reunites with his father, an alcoholic gambling addict who takes him to Las Vegas.

RatPac is financing the project with principal Brett Ratner producing, joining with “The Hunger Games” producer Nina Jacobson »

Stephen Colbert Takes a Hilarious Tour of the Republican National Convention Complex

19 July 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

[Youtube "WFjDBvRxcbM"] It's the 2016 Hungry for Power Games, and may the odds be ever in your favor - to laugh hysterically. On Monday's episode of the Late Show, host Stephen Colbert shared a pretaped segment with the audience in which he toured the Republican National Convention to mock the proceedings as well as presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump. Colbert reprised his riff on The Hunger Games' emcee Caesar Flickerman (Stanley Tucci), holding a faux pet weasel while strolling around the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. "I've arrived at the 2016 Republican National Hungry For Power Games," he began. "Welcome to the arena, »

Simon Mayo interview: Blame, writing, Kermode, Stephen King

Simon Brew Jul 21, 2016

Simon Mayo chats to us about writing, the importance of Stephen King, politics, Blame, and Basil Exposition...

Simon Mayo is a man of many talents. To cinema folk, he's one of the two voices behind Wittertainment, the BBC's flagship film programme (wassup, etc). To others, he plays choice songs on Radio 2. To me: he was also chairman of Melchester Rovers. And to a growing number of people, he's the author of some really fine works of fiction.

His latest, Blame, sees him heading into the world of Young Adult. And over a hot drink (him: civilised green tea, me: coffee caffeine rocket fuel concoction, no biscuits) we had a chat about what could almost be an accidental shift into non-fiction...

The last time I interviewed you I messed up my opening question when I tried to follow the Simon Mayo interview handbook, but I think I’ve got this nailed now. »

Watch Stephen Colbert Skewer Donald Trump in 'Hunger Games' Rnc Skit

19 July 2016 7:41 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

On Monday night's episode of The Late Show, Stephen Colbert romped around the Republican National Convention at Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena, cracking jokes about Chris Christie, Paul Ryan and North Carolina's infamous "Bathroom Bill."

The TV host has referred to the election as "Hungry for Power Games" for months. He narrates these skits as a character based on Caesar Flickerman, the maestro of The Hunger Games movies (on the big screen, Flickerman is played by Stanley Tucci). To add flair on his jaunt through the Quicken Loans arena, Colbert brought along his pet weasel, »

At Republican National Convention, Trump Emphasizes Entrance Over Substance

18 July 2016 10:55 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The stage in Cleveland was lit so intensely with floor lights that the surface took on a liquid, reflective quality. It was tinged slightly blue, as was the backdrop — the blown-out gray of a screen that is on, but not transmitting anything yet. From the wings emerged a silhouette, shadowy but unmistakable. That shambling gait, that helmet-like bouffant; these are the physical attributes of a man as reviled as he is adored, as mocked as he is lionized.

And now, these are the traits of a man on the verge of being officially nominated as the major political party’s candidate for commander-in-chief.

His wife is the former model, but it was Donald Trump who made a runway entrance at the Republican National Convention’s first night in Ohio. The theme of the evening was “Make America Safe Again,” but with that backlit attention to not just image but mere silhouette, the »

Stephen Colbert Crashes Republican Convention to Deliver Anti-Trump ‘Hunger Games’ Parody Speech

18 July 2016 8:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Stephen Colbert has one-upped himself yet again. On Sunday, the man who famously roasted George W. Bush while standing just feet away from the President a decade ago crashed the Republican National Convention stage a day before the ceremonies begin to deliver a quick but hilarious speech.

Studiocanal Asks French Theaters to Pull ‘Bastille Day’ Movie in Wake of Nice Attack (Exclusive)

16 July 2016 4:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Studiocanal asked French exhibitors Saturday to pull the movie “Bastille Day” from their theaters — not just ads for the film — following the truck attack in Nice that left 84 people dead and scores more injured.

The request came as France entered a three-day period of national mourning. The decision by Studiocanal appears to have been taken Saturday morning as media reports started to filter through that the Nice attack had been the work of someone inspired by the radical group Islamic State.

The company had initially just yanked ads for “Bastille Day” in France but left the decision whether to continue showing the film — which turns on a terrorist plot to bomb Paris — up to cinema chains. Most if not all appeared to have continued screening it on Friday night and early Saturday morning.

But Jocelyn Bouyssy, the director of Cgr, which released “Bastille Day” in 35 cities on Wednesday, said Saturday »

Woody Harrelson is in talks to join Rob Reiner’s Iraq war film “Shock And Awe.” According to Deadline, the political charged picture centers on a group of journalists investigating the assertions by the Bush Administration about Saddam Hussein’s alleged weapons of mass destruction, the reason given by the administration for the invasion of Iraq.

Woody Harrelson in Talks for Iraq War Drama ‘Shock and Awe’

12 July 2016 8:58 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Woody Harrelson is in talks to star in Rob Reiner’s Iraq War drama “Shock and Awe.”

Reiner has been developing the project for several years through his Castle Rock banner. Jorva Entertainment has come on board to finance.

If the deal for Harrelson goes through, “Shock and Awe” would reteam Reiner and Harrelson following their collaboration on Lyndon B. Johnson biopic “Lbj.”

The “Shock and Awe” script, written by “LBJ” screenwriter Joey Hartsone, centers around journalists investigating the assertions by the Bush Administration about Saddam Hussein’s alleged weapons of mass destruction as a pretext for invading Iraq in 2003. The film is scheduled for production later this year.

The term “shock and awe” was employed by U.S. defense officials to describe their plan for invading Iraq.

Jorva partnered with Reiner on his drama “Being Charlie,” which starred Nick Robinson of “Jurassic World” and premiered last year at the Toronto International Film Festival. »

Sun Valley: John Malone Spills About ‘Frenemy’ Sumner Redstone, Lionsgate and Starz Merger

7 July 2016 8:47 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Twenty two years ago, John Malone and Sumner Redstone faced off in a bidding war for control of Paramount Pictures. It was a battle in which Redstone ultimately prevailed, and the two media moguls have had a frequently combative, occasionally collaborative relationship over the past two decades.

On Thursday, Malone brushed aside past differences, telling press at the Allen & Company media conference in Sun Valley, Idaho, that he had sympathy for the legal battle engulfing Redstone’s empire.

“I’m hoping that all settles down and everybody is treated fairly,” said Malone. “Sumner’s been a longtime friend and sometimes partner and sometimes frenemy. You hate to see the stress of a family situation. I certainly hope it all works out to everybody’s benefit. They created some great assets over the years and they’re a very important part of our industry.”

Gamera Obscura: The Best Five Minutes of The Purge: Election Year Are Clichéd and Nonsensical

7 July 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

One of the many reasons I’ve never been terribly successful as a movie reviewer is that I tend to confuse “interesting” with “good.” Consistent with that, yet worse still, as in the case of The Purge: Election Year, is that I’m likely to find a movie’s most incoherent, contradictory, or unbelievable moments its most strangely compelling. Of course one could argue, and plenty of critics have, that the very premise of James DeMonaco’s Purge films is absurd, not just select moments. Twelve hours of legally sanctioned carnage every year? Um… maybe. I guess everything depends on where you go from there, both in tone and the world-building you do around such a premise. Consider Death Race 2000, Battle Royale, The Hunger Games. For me the...
