Paul Dano to Direct His First Film, Based on the Novel ‘Wildlife’

2 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Emboldened, perhaps, by the life-affirming message of “Swiss Army Man,” Paul Dano is set to go behind the camera for the first time. The actor will make his directorial debut with “Wildlife,” an adaptation of Richard Ford’s 1990 novel that Dano has co-written along with Zoe Kazan.

Neither actor is expected to appear onscreen in the film, reports Variety. “Wildlife” tells of a teenager named Joe Brinson whose parents’ marriage slowly dissolves after the family moves to Montana in 1960. Dano and Kazan have been in a relationship since 2007 and co-starred in “Ruby Sparks” (which Kazan wrote solo) together four years ago. Kazan’s recent credits include “Our Brand Is Crisis” and the South by Southwest premiere “My Blind Brother,” while Dano has been seen in “12 Years a Slave,” “Prisoners” and “Love & Mercy.”

Screenwriter Eric Heisserer on Lights Out, The Rules of Horror and Collaborating with James Wan

27 July 2016 10:11 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Eric Heisserer bristles at the label of horror movie screenwriter. It’s understandable. While his produced credits include a Final Destination sequel and the remakes of The Thing and A Nightmare on Elm Street, Heisserer points out that he has authored 56 feature film scripts and only eight of them have been in the horror genre. That connotation may change later this year when Heisserer’s screenplay for the sci-fi film Arrival hits screens from Prisoners and Sicario director Denis Villeneuve. But for now Heisserer and I are talking about Lights Out, a new horror offering based on director David F. Sandberg’s […] »

The Walking Dead Stalwart Lennie James Caps Off Blade Runner 2 Cast

26 July 2016 2:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Production is already underway on the set of Blade Runner 2 – but that hasn’t prevented Denis Villeneuve’s sequel from scooping up some last-minute talent to add to its already jam-packed ensemble.

Hot off his turn in The Walking Dead season 6, it is Lennie James that will join the sci-fi sequel’s crowded roster. No word yet on who James will be playing (Replicant? Human?), all we know is that he’ll be rubbing shoulders with Harrison Ford’s Deckard, Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Carla Juri, Guardians fan-favorite Dave Bautista and Captain Phillips star Barkhad Abdi.

That makes for quite the enviable casting docket, which is reason enough for us to lend Warner and Alcon Entertainment’s long-rumored follow-up the benefit of the doubt. That, coupled with Villeneuve’s recent track record (read: Prisoners and the Emily Blunt-fronted actioner Sicario) which has witnessed the »

The Walking Dead's Lennie James Joins Blade Runner 2

26 July 2016 12:24 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Lennie James of The Walking Dead and Snatch fame has official joined the cast of the currently-untitled Blade Runner 2.

James will be joining an all-star cast that includes Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, and Dave Bautista. In addition to the impressive cast, the film also boasts director Denis Villeneuve at the helm, who is best known for Prisoners and, more recently, Sicario.

As of this writing, few details regarding the plot have made themselves known to the general public. All we really do know is that the film takes place decades after the first Blade Runner in a future Los Angeles where The Climate Has Gone Berserk and the "ocean, the rain, the snow is all toxic."

The original film's director, Ridley Scott, is serving as executive producer, and cinematography legend Roger Deakins is re-teaming with Villeneuve on this project after working with him on last year's Sicario. »

‘Blade Runner 2’ first look: Official image lands online

17 July 2016 11:54 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The first official image from the upcoming Blade Runner sequel, which is still officially untitled, has been released by Warner Brothers/ Sony Pictures.

Denis Villeneuve (SicarioPrisoners) is directing and principal photography is scheduled to begin this month.  The film will be released by Warner Bros. in North America and Sony Pictures Releasing International will distribute in all media for all overseas territories.

“I’ve always been attracted to science-fiction films with strong visual signatures that lead us into unique parallel worlds and the original ‘Blade Runner’ is by far the best of all time,” Villeneuve said in an official release. “Ridley Scott had the genius to blend science-fiction and film noir to create this unique exploration of human condition. The new ‘Blade Runner’ is an extension of the first movie a few decades later.”  

The sequel is set several decades after the 1982 original, with Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role as Rick Deckard. »

In Nod to ‘Lights Out’ YouTube Origins, Warner Bros. Taps YouTube Creators for Scary Promos (Exclusive)

15 July 2016 1:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

David F. Sandberg’s feature-length directorial debut, “Lights Out,” is set to bow next week — and Warner Bros. is using his YouTube-to-bigscreen success story to market the horror film.

The studio pacted with YouTube to invite eight up-and-coming creators to shoot scary short films at YouTube Space New York, on new sets inspired by the “Lights Out” movie. The videos are slated to go live Friday, one week ahead of the July 22 debut of “Lights Out,” a New Line Cinema presentation distributed by Warner Bros. The shorts will appear on the individual creator channels, as well as the YouTube Space channel, the official Warner Bros. YouTube channel and promoted through social media platforms.

“It’s a Cinderella story born at YouTube,” said Blair Rich, president of worldwide marketing for Warner Bros. “So it seemed like the most natural place to promote the movie was with YouTube.”

Stellar New 'Blade Runner 2' Concept Art Released!

15 July 2016 11:04 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

While Blade Runner wasn’t very well received upon its released in the early 1980s, it has held up over time and is now revered as a dramatic science fiction film to which all others are compared. It was slow, contemplative, and life-changing for a great number of people, not the least of whom was director Denis Villeneuve, who is set to helm the anticipated Blade Runner sequel.

“I remember the opening sequence perfectly,” Villeneuve told EW. And it’s not just the opening sequence he remembers. After watching the film “thousands of times,” he claims to know the whole thing by heart. “That note of music; seeing Los Angeles in 2019; that smog; that darkness. It’s really the movie that gave birth to my desire to become a director.”

While the world could have very much gone on just fine without a Blade Runner 2, if you were to give a sequel to a filmmaker, »

Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Developing Alien Invasion Thriller ‘The Fall’

7 July 2016 4:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners is developing alien-invasion thriller “The Fall,” based on a script by Australian writer Pete Bridges.

Madhouse Entertainment partner Adam Kolbrenner will produce with Madhouse’s Robyn Meisinger executive producing. Amblin closed the deal for the script this week.

Kolbrenner was a producer on the 2013 thriller “Prisoners,” starring Jake Gylenhaal and Hugh Jackman.

Are Popular Characters Replacing Big Name Actors?

5 July 2016 8:47 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 The long-accepted rule in the film industry is that established names bring in the box office gold. Hollywood has always relied on big-name actors to guarantee them big box office. But is the trend changing now? Are fans now becoming less interested in A-list actors than in the characters they play?

A-List Hollywood stars get the big money because they bring in big profits for Hollywood studios. Or at least, they have up until now. Is the era of the A-Lister starting to fade? It’s possible, because in recent years, it seems that film fans have more interest in the role and less in the person playing the role. Look at what’s been happening to many A-lister in recent years.

 Let’s take Johnny Depp, for instance. He used to play a variety of roles and could draw in crowds with his name alone. More recently, however, his »
