New Regency has acquired an untitled thriller and set “71” helmer Yann Demange to direct the pic.
Plot details are unknown.
Demange has been one of the more sought-after directors in Hollywood following the critical acclaim of “71,” which stars “Unbroken” star Jack O’Connell in the story of a British soldier who is left behind in Belfast after a riot.
New Regency has increasingly found ways to team with high-profile directors like Steve McQueen on “12 Years a Slave” and Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu, who is coming off of his Oscar win for “Birdman,” and is directing “The Revenant,” staring Leonardo DiCaprio, for the company, which will open the film next Christmas.
New Regency and Plan B see Demange as a director with strong storytelling skills. »

The ripples from the 87th Academy Awards will be felt for years to come. Most are positive, some are negative, but beyond a disappointingly long and unfunny telecast this wasn't an Oscar season that will be forgotten anytime soon. First off, the importance of Fox Searchlight's dominance during the telecast cannot be discounted. The mini-major took home eight Academy Awards including Best Picture, Director and Original Screenplay for "Birdman." The four wins for "The Grand Budapest Hotel" notably included Alexandre Desplat's first win for Best Original Score. Moreover, Searchlight has now joined only a small number of studios that have won Best Picture back-to-back. The films they release year after year continue to rank in most film critics' top 10 lists and the modern classics under their banner are significant enough to make parent studio 20th Century Fox green with envy. Over the past two years, they have released "12 Years a Slave, »

Daniel Wolfe established himself as one of the brightest directorial talents in Britain with his music videos. His promo for "Time to Dance", a song by French dance outfit The Shoes, featured Brokeback Mountain star Jake Gyllenhaal as a serial killer slaughtering hipsters in Dalston. The collaboration came about because Gyllenhaal voiced a desire to work with the British director after seeing the videos he made for the rapper Plan B. »
The investigation into Mr. Green’s murder took a sharp turn down Wtf Avenue on Sunday’s Downton Abbey as a Bates was unexpectedly placed behind bars — but not the one you might have expected.
RelatedDownton Abbey Recap: Life’s Ruff
Is it possible? Could Anna really have pushed Mr. Green to his death? The witness to his murder certainly didn’t hesitate to pick her out of the line-up, but I remain unconvinced. Turning Anna into a killer seems like a shark over which even Downton wouldn’t dare to jump.
Still, things aren’t looking too great »
Based on cryptic responses from inside the White House, President Obama and the first family’s viewing plans on Oscar night must be a closely guarded secret.
An Academy Award nominee for adapted screenplay, Moore becomes the Obama Administration’s de facto inside man because his mother, Susan Sher, served as First Lady Michelle Obama’s initial chief of staff and “confidant-in-chief” in the first years after the Obamas’ move from Chicago to Washington.
Michelle Obama lauded “The Imitation Game” and other films and TV shows last month for helping to break stereotypes about gay people. The film depicts Alan Turing’s heroic efforts to break a crucial Nazi code during World War II, even as he was ostracized for his homosexuality. »

Well, we've got another barn burner on our hands people. Final voting for the 87th Academy Awards is well underway and this year's Best Picture race is far from settled. Or is it? Excuse me, feeling deja vu. I believe we went through something similar to this last year. In one corner, we have indie darling "Boyhood," Richard Linklater's 12-year achievement which has won most of the major critics' honors and took home the BAFTA award for Best Film last Sunday night. In the other corner is Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," another critically-acclaimed drama which has taken home the three key guild honors: the Producers Guild Award, the Directors Guild Award and the Best Ensemble honor at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. If you were to play the analytics game, the easy pick would be "Birdman." No film has won all three guild honors and lost the Oscar »

Charlie Hunnam will star in the 'The Lost City Of Z'. The 34-year-old actor has taken over the lead role in the mythical adventure from Benedict Cumberbatch and is expected to start filming this summer, reports Empire Online.

If you’re someone who rolls their eyes at the idea of Benedict Cumberbatch taking on every film and genre possible, prepare to wipe one title off your to-boycott list. He’s no longer attached to James Gray’s adventure film The Lost City Of Z. Nope, now Charlie Hunnam will take the lead instead.Bubbling away in development for a while, the adaptation of David Grann’s popular book once boasted Brad Pitt as the star, but he’s now simply on board to produce via his Plan B company. Hunnam will play Percy Fawcett, who headed into Brazil’s Amazon jungles on a mapping quest in 1925. There, suffering from a nasty case of malaria, he claimed to have discovered a mythical city he called the Lost City of Z.When his adventurer peers roundly mocked the idea as a fantasy or fraud, Fawcett gathered up his son and »
It’s been well over a year since any significant movement was made on James Gray’s The Lost City Of Z. In late 2013, Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson joined the cast, which, at that time, only included Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead. Then, in December, Sienna Miller was reportedly grafted onto the project in a minor role, with outlets announcing that production would commence in summer 2015.
Was that imminent lensing date a motivating factor for acquiring a new leading man? Either way, Deadline reports that Cumberbatch is off the project and Sons Of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam is taking his place. It’s likely that the former has had to reshuffle his pending projects due to his Marvel commitments on Doctor Strange.
Whatever the reason, the unknown cause of the film’s delay now means that Hunnam will play Percival Fawcett, described as a “British colonial who disappeared in the »

Malick is working first in the IMAX format for a 40-minute version with scientific narration by Brad Pitt, whose Plan B produces, followed by a 35mm feature-length version narrated by Cate Blanchett, who stars in Malick's upcoming Berlinale premiere "Knight of Cups."
