David Ellison’s Skydance Hires DreamWorks CFO Larry Wasserman

16 September 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Longtime DreamWorks Chief Financial Officer Larry Wasserman has joined David Ellison’s Skydance Productions in the same post.

In the newly created role, he will oversee Skydance’s finance, accounting and administrative operations. He’ll also support the analysis and execution of new initiatives.

The move comes two weeks after veteran TV executive Michael Wright was announced as the new CEO at DreamWorks, replacing Stacey Snider who will leave the company at the beginning of January. A DreamWorks spokeswoman said that the company would issue an announcement related to Wasserman’s departure later this week.

“I am thrilled to welcome Larry Wasserman to the Skydance family,” said Ellison, who’s the CEO of Skydance. “Larry’s wealth of knowledge and depth of experience make him the perfect addition to our company as we continue to grow and expand our film and television business.”

Wasserman spent a decade at DreamWorks in a variety of senior posts. »

10 Classic Movies That Will Inevitably Be Remade

9 September 2014 4:13 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Remakes, reboots and reimaginings; in recent years, ‘re’ has certainly become Hollywood’s go-to prefix. In an age where nearly every high-profile movie that hits theaters is based on an existing property, original projects are continually being overlooked in favor of those with built-in appeal and name recognition. There are currently dozens of established properties in development that are being rehashed and updated for the current generation of audiences, with the trend showing no signs of slowing down.

With that being said, there have been plenty of great remakes over the years. Classic movies like The Fly, Scarface, The Thing and Heat were all based on existing movies, while Ocean’s Eleven, Cape Fear and True Grit all delivered updates that were superior to the originals. However, on the other side of the coin are the dozens of lazy and uninspired remakes that seem to think a recognizable »

'Ender's Game' Star -- My Trailer Better Be As Big As Abigail Breslin's

6 September 2014 12:20 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Size definitely mattered for the teenage stars of "Ender's Game" ... who had a mine's-bigger-than-yours attitude on the set ... at least as far as their dressing room trailers were concerned. Both Asa Butterfield and Hailee Steinfeld made sure they didn't get stuck with a dinky or crappy trailer ... by including specific language in their minor's contracts. Studios are required to file these with the court for all actors under 18. According to the legal docs obtained by »

Sony Confirms Josh Greenstein to Head Marketing

5 September 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony Pictures Entertainment has hired Josh Greenstein as the studio’s president of worldwide marketing and distribution.

Greenstein will assume the role previously held by Jeff Blake, who was forced out in late July, and oversee the day-to-day management. He will report to Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment and chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group.

Friday’s announcement came three days after Variety reported that Greenstein, the former Paramount Pictures chief marketing officer, was in final negotiations with Sony to succeed Blake.

Greenstein, who has been at Paramount since 2005 and previously served as co-president of marketing and executive vice president of creative advertising, had already informed his bosses at the Viacom Inc.-owned studio that he would not be renewing his contract when it expires at the end of this year.

Before joining Paramount, he served as head of marketing for Dimension Films.

5 September 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Update: That was quick. Sony just sent the release, which runs below the brief update.

I’m hearing that Greenstein’s deal is closed and that it’s all over but the press release at this point. The official word should come before the weekend. He replaces Jeff Blake, who exited after launching Sony’s summer box office. Stay tuned.

Culver City–Sony Pictures Entertainment (Spe) today announced that Josh Greenstein will join the company as the studio’s President of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution. In this role, Greenstein will assume the role previously held »

3 of the Greatest Book to Movie Adaptations

1 September 2014 6:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anthony Hodgson on his three greatest book to movie adaptations…

American Psycho

Author, Bret Easton Ellis.

Screenplay, Mary Harron & Guinevere Turner.

Upon its original publication in 1991, American Psycho was marred by controversy, and it’s no surprise considering one of the chapters is called ‘Killing Child at Zoo’, which was sensibly not included in the film. The satire focuses on Patrick Bateman, a cold blooded narcissistic ‘yuppie’ who spends his days listening to Phil Collins in his plush Wall Street office, but spends his nights brutally murdering prostitutes and homeless people. Harron & Turner were set with the tough task of portraying the comedic elements of the book whilst keeping it’s gruesome themes.

And they nailed it. From the opening credits of blood-like condiments dripping across the screen, to the famously ambiguous ending, it is easy to tell that they truly understood what Ellis was trying to say. And through »

Never Say Die: 21 highlights from Josh Brolin's terrific,'Goonies'-heavy Reddit Ama

21 August 2014 5:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Though he was ostensibly promoting his role in the upcoming Robert Rodriguez sequel "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," Josh Brolin's Reddit Ama on Thursday was delightfully all over the map, with topics ranging from "The Goonies" ("I've never had more fun on a movie") to his disastrous "Thrashin'" audition ("an 18 wheeler ran over it") to the insanity of working with Paul Thomas Anderson ("It felt like swimming in a Ralph Steadman drawing") to that horrible moment on the set of "American Gangster" with Russell Crowe ("I went back to my trailer waiting to be fired"). But mostly he talked about "The Goonies," and god love him for it. Check out the 21 best moments from the spirited, candid and wildly entertaining Q&A below. 1. His favorite superheroes are the Hulk, Thor and...Richie Rich? @Judomonkeykyle asks: Hi Josh, are you a comic book fan? Who is your favorite superhero/supervillan? »

‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Star Josh Brolin On Why You Should “Never Write Anybody Off”

20 August 2014 8:08 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Josh Brolin‘s performance in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For isn’t wildly dissimilar to his work in Men in Black III. They’re very different films and performances, of course, but both prequels feature Brolin inheriting a role from another actor. Brolin eerily embodied Tommy Lee Jones as Agent K, while in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For he’s channeling Clive Owen’s work as Dwight McCarthy from the first movie. This is Dwight before he had to change his face, which, in case you haven’t read Frank Miller‘s comics, is why Owen isn’t back playing the character. Whether Josh Brolin studied Clive Owen’s performance never came up in our wide-ranging conversation with the actor, who’s clearly pleased with both the film and his performance. With the exception of Labor Day – a film I’ll readily go to bat for — it’s the first time since True Grit »

The Giver – The Review

14 August 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Once again let’s spin the dial on the multiplex time machine and return to another dismal possible future (it’s not a better world usually, is it?). So, is the planet a desolate, scorched hellscape much like in The Rover or the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road? Well, not really. Is it a harshly divided class system pitting the have against the have-nots as in The Hunger Games or Snowpiercer? Nope, not at all. This film harkens back to the cold, antiseptic futures of Things To Come, Logan’S Run, and even Sleeper. But like the aforementioned games series and the recent Divergent, this film features a teenage hero (male this time) and is based on a series of young adult novels, one that’s twenty years-old (predating those two). And while those other Ya-based flicks feature physical challenges and violent competitions, this story is more about emotions and memories. »

Shared Interests Have Led New Mexico Unions and Government to Work Together

14 August 2014 12:33 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Over the past decade, thanks to its aggressive tax rebate, New Mexico has positioned itself as a filmmaking and TV production magnet that’s attracted over $2 billion in spending — including such projects as “Breaking Bad,” the new “Manhattan” series, “Transcendence,” “Transformers 2,” “Terminator Salvation,” “True Grit” and “Cowboys & Aliens.”

But despite that success story, the state’s local unions also face some unique challenges, says Jon Hendry, business agent for Iatse Local 480. “We have a Republican governor, Susana Martinez, who’s indicated that she’s not particularly union-friendly, and we have a robust union, which was very close to the last administration,” he says.

But the two sides share many interests, which has led to a fruitful compromise. “After three years we’ve finally worked out a truce, if not a warm relationship, and both parties understand that we have to work together for our common goals,” Hendry adds.

Watch a supercut of some of cinematographer Roger Deakins' best work

13 August 2014 12:49 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I've spent the better part of the last few months diving into the catalog of cinematographer Roger Deakins, starting with Michael Radford's "Nineteen Eighty Four" and soaking up each and every indelible image he's given us over the last three decades. I imagine I'll write something up soon enough, as he'll surely be in the thick of things again this season with his work on Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken," but in the meantime, here's a delicious video exploration of some of his work. The video — pieced together by Plot Point Productions — leans heavily on the latter-day stuff. Lots of "No Country," "Jesse James," "Revolutionary Road," "Jarhead," "True Grit," etc. Probably that's because all of those are available in higher definition formats, but it would be great to see more of the striking imagery from "Sid and Nancy" or "Kundun" or little-seen stuff like "Mountains of the Moon" slip in. »

Comic-Con Helped Josh Brolin Understand Thanos Role Even More

8 August 2014 12:09 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Just recently, we got our first official look at Josh Brolin as Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy. Even if you haven't seen the film, Marvel revealed a first look photo at the True Grit and No Country for Old Men star as the cosmic villain who will end up creating tons of problems for The Avengers in the future of the comic book studio's cinematic universe. We're not sure when we'll next see the big bad guy pop up on the big screen, but Brolin is aware of at least one upcoming appearance, and he told IGN as much when he talked about how he came to the role, and how Comic-Con helped him understand the character even more. First of all, keeping things vague, Brolin knows some of Thanos' future plans: “I know what one appearance is going to be for sure. There’s one or two that I don’t know. »

Video of the Day: Roger Deakins and Coen Brothers supercut

5 August 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Always the bridesmaid and never the bride, cinematographer Roger Deakins is one of the greatest working DPs today, having earned 11 Oscar nominations and never won. He’s like the Susan Lucci of the technical categories.

But he got that way because for years he’s been consistently collaborating with the Coen Brothers on some of their most iconic films, everything from Fargo to O Brother Where Art Thou, The Man Who Wasn’t There, True Grit, The Big Lebowski, Barton Fink and No Country for Old Men. The man is a master, most recently making sinister, wintery chills in last year’s Prisoners.

Thanks to Blag Films, you can now see a short supercut of some of Deakins’ finest shots among his collaboration with the Coens (with the unfortunate exception of The Ladykillers and The Hudsucker Proxy). While only limiting it to Coens films eliminates the chance to see some »

A Spectacular Collaboration: Roger Deakins and the Coen Brothers

3 August 2014 5:21 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

The collaboration between the Coen Brothers and cinematographer Roger Deakins is spotlighted in this Blag Films supercut featuring moments from films such as Fargo, O Brother Where Art Thou, The Man Who Wasn’t There, True Grit, and quite a few other simply beautiful-looking films. And if these shots seem astonishingly well composed, well, then that’s due not just to Deakins’ mastery but to the Coens’ penchant for scouting, pre-production and storyboarding everything in advance. The shots in this video, with their precise time of days, frequent use of high angles and careful arrangement of what’s in the frame are clearly […] »

DVD Review: 'Unforgiven'

29 July 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆Released to widespread critical and audience acclaim back in 1992, Clint Eastwood's Oscar-winning revenge tale Unforgiven is fondly remembered as a valiant last stand by an American movie genre that had been slowly dying a death for decades. The West, as it transpired, had been well and truly won, despite several sporadic attempts to spur the old horse back into life (see Open Range, the Coen brothers' True Grit and, most recently, Quentin Tarantino's revisionist Django Unchained). Now, 22 years on from Eastwood's original offering, director Lee Sang-il presents Yurusarezaru mono (2013), a loose remake transposed to nineteenth century feudal Japan, with cowboys replaced by samurai. »

Marvel Confirms Josh Brolin as Thanos in 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and Beyond

26 July 2014 7:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Thanos, Marvel's most cosmic villain, now has a face as Josh Brolin joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

The celebrated actor can first be seen and heard as the Mad Titan in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, in theaters August 1, and will subsequently play Thanos in future Marvel Studios films.

Here's what producer Kevin Feige had to say about Josh Brolin portraying Thanos.

"Josh brings all the weight and stature necessary for a character as iconic and significant as Thanos. We're incredibly excited for fans to see more of him as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand."

Brolin's career began with the cult-classic The Goonies, and in his 29-year career since then the actor has taken on countless roles in both film and television, including critically-acclaimed performances in No Country for Old Men, W. and True Grit. In that time, Brolin has worked with such esteemed directors as Oliver Stone, »
