Cannes: After Martin Scorsese’s ‘Silence’ Niels Juul Seeks to Bring Other Cecchi Gori Properties to the Bigscreen (Exclusive)

21 May 2015 10:17 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Back from the Taiwan set of Martin Scorsese’s “Silence,” which just wrapped shooting, Niels Juul, CEO of L.A.-based Cecchi Gori Media, is now shifting his energies to several other projects he has in various stages, including pics with Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Kafka as central characters.

“It’s been an amazing experience,” Juul (pictured with Scorsese) enthused about “Silence,” on which he is an executive producer, having been instrumental in  bringing to the screen the eponymous Shusaku Endo novel about God’s silence in the face of human suffering. Cecchi Gori holds the movie rights.

“Everyone has been bending over backwards to get this amazing movie made. Everyone taking a [pay] cut; everyone basically working for scale,” he recounted. “We are all making an amazing effort to make an independent $51 million movie.”

It’s been tough working “under extremely hard conditions,” Juuls said. But “Marty has come in on budget and on time, »

How the year 2012 helped redefine blockbuster movies

20 May 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

2012: the year the movie universe sparked, Universal struggled, and young adult adaptations really took off...

The big blockbusters of summer 2011 were the ones that followed fairly straightforward rules. The majority of them were sequels in linear movie franchises - Harry Potter, Transformers, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Fast & Furious - and it felt for the most part like a template was being followed.

Sure, there were surprises. Bridesmaids broke through and proved to be a massive R-rated hit. X-Men: First Class, meanwhile, came through unscathed - and in fine shape - from its reboot, whilst Jj Abrams took us temporarily back to the 1980s with Super 8. But other than that, the pattern was set: the big, pre-ordained films took the lion's share of the cash, and regular sequels were the order of the day.

The signs of change were there in 2011, of course. Thor was a bigger hit than most were expecting, »

Martin Scorsese’s ‘Silence’ To Wrap In Taiwan

4 May 2015 9:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Martin Scorsese is in the final few days of shooting “Silence,” his historical drama about faith and religion. Some 14 weeks of photography in Taipei will be completed May 15.

At a press event in Taipei on Monday, Scorsese spoke of the long journey to making the film, which is based on Shusaku Endo’s novel “Silence” about God’s silence in the face of human suffering. Scorsese had prepared a draft of the screenplay as early as 1992, but said that the origins were deeper still.

“The subject matter presented by Shusaku Endo was in my life since I was very, very young. I was very much involved in religion, I was raised in a strong Catholic family,” Scorsese said.

While the book is set in 17th century Japan, Scorsese located the production in Taiwan, following an introduction by Ang Lee. It was entirely shot in the territory with various locations in Taipei (Yangmingshan, »

Deepwater Horizon Is Putting Together An Awesome Cast

11 April 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When there was an explosion on a Bp oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, it spewed oil into the water for 87 days. Peter Berg (Battleship) is turning the real life disaster into a cinematic thriller, Deepwater Horizon, and in the process he.s putting together an impressive cast. There were a couple of stars already in place, and they just added two more high-profile actors to beef up the call sheet. There were eleven crew members killed in the blast, and Berg, who took over the project after J.C. Chandor (A Most Violent Year) left over creative differences, has said that he wants to tell the story about the "real heroes" working on the rig. He hopes to honor the ones aboard who tried to prevent the explosion and subsequent calamity, and it sounds like he.s taking a similar approach as he did with the real »

Dylan O’Brien In Talks For Deepwater Horizon; Kurt Russell Also On Board

10 April 2015 3:40 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Update: Variety reports that Kurt Russell, hot off a supporting turn in Furious 7, is also circling a role.

Original: Summit’s Deepwater Horizon, about the 2010 Bp oil-rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico that took the lives of 11 people and spilled oil into the ocean for a horrific 87 days, got a whole lot less interesting when A Most Violent Year director J.C. Chandor exited and was replaced by Battleship helmer Peter Berg, but the talent that’s being assembled in front of the camera for the pic is undeniably exciting. Mark Wahlberg and Jane the Virgin breakout Gina Rodriguez are already attached, and now The Maze Runner star Dylan O’Brien is in talks for a major role.

O’Brien, who first hit it big with the teen crowd back in 2011 with the hit MTV series Teen Wolf (now gearing up for its fifth season), has been a star »

30 Ridiculously Sexy Taylor Kitsch Pictures That Might Make You Blush

8 April 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Sure, there are plenty of reasons why Tim Riggins has your heart, but actor Taylor Kitsch is just as sexy off screen, too. This week, he turns 34, so to celebrate, we're taking a look at some of his hottest moments. The Canadian actor first won over fans as tough, hunky football hero Riggins on Friday Night Lights, and over the past few years, he's been on the big screen thanks to movies like John Carter, Battleship, and Savages. Soon, he'll be returning to the small screen with a buzzed-about role on True Detective. In any case, now seems like the perfect time to look back at some of his sexiest snaps from over the years, including a mix of red carpet appearances and crazy-hot magazine editorials.

17 year old Scottish actor John Bell leads the cast in WWII drama The Man in the Box which started filming on location near Innsbruck in Tirol (Austria) in mid-December, with filming now recommencing on location in Austria and Germany, as well as in Italy, near Bressanone.

Home Review

24 March 2015 9:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just as one one might wonder why it is that extraterrestrial life hasn’t been discovered yet, you’d think the existence of a solid 3D-animated film about a loveable alien is something we could confirm by the year 2015. From E.T. to Lilo & Stitch, the slam-dunk appeal of adorable interlopers from space has proven itself time and time again, but cracking this particular old chestnut in the age of 3D has only bred the likes of Planet 51 and Escape From Planet Earth. (Monsters vs. Aliens fails this test on account of siding squarely with the Monsters). Safely designed to minimize any potentially alienating elements, Home, the newest effort from DreamWorks Animation, does not mark an end to the search for a higher form of animated entertainment.

Adapted from Adam Rex’s 2007 children’s book The True Meaning of Smekday, Home follows the comfortable “mismatched buddies on a road trip” formula. »

Liam Neeson to Lead Ridley Scott Produced Action Thriller 'Narco Sub'

24 March 2015 8:52 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After joining the Navy in Peter Berg's action adaptation of the board game Battleship, it looks like Liam Neeson is getting back in uniform again (kind of). The Wrap reports the Taken and Run All Night star is being eye to lead Narco Sub, a drug-trafficking thriller that was once going to be directed by the late Tony Scott before his tragic death in 2012. Since then, filmmakers like Doug Liman and Antoine Fuqua have flirted with the project, but none of them have stuck with it. And now it will be "Game of Thrones" helmer Brian Kirk directing the film for 20th Century Fox and producers Ridley Scott and Simon Kinberg. The story follows a notorious Ecuadorian drug lord who forces a disgraced American naval officer to navigate a cocaine-packed submarine past the U.S. Coast Guard. the title refers to the custom-made ocean-going self-propelled submersible vessel built by drug traffickers to smuggle drugs, »

Home review: Jim Parsons and Rihanna's disjointed adventure

16 March 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Tim Johnson; Screenwriter: Tom J Astle, Matt Ember; Starring: Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Steve Martin, Jennifer Lopez; Running time: 94 mins; Certificate: U

Now that even Pixar are making more sequels than original films, it's encouraging to see DreamWorks attempt to launch a fresh franchise story, but is it good enough to rival the likes of Despicable Me and Toy Story?

Based on Adam Rex's 2007 children's book The True Meaning of Smekday, Home follows an alien race called the Boov who, despite being rather incompetent, manage to take over Earth in order to hide from their enemy.

To do this, the Boov move the entire human race in big pockets of desert space, thinking they are doing us a favour in the process. On paper, if this plot was taken by someone like Neil Blomkamp or James Cameron, it could have been transformed into a rather terrifying sci-fi horror film »

When will Liam Neeson go back to consistently making awards contenders?

12 March 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Like many of you, I was pretty surprised and more than a little bit delighted when Liam Neeson made the next act in his illustrious career an action packed one. No one expected Taken to be a hit, or as satisfyingly enjoyable as it was, but it signaled a new trajectory for Neeson. That’s been all well and good, but one thing that it’s cost us is his performances in Oscar fare. Since Taken, Neeson has more or less dropped off of the Academy’s radar, with only one upcoming project hopefully set to return him to prestige territory. I like when he kicks ass, like he does in Friday’s new release Run All Night, but I prefer it when he contends for awards. Neeson is a very strong dramatic actor and certainly very solid as an action hero, but it’s the former where he’s really been able to shine. »

Rihanna Wears $560 Fur-Lined Mules -- Like the Look?!

12 March 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Fur fever! Rihanna was spotted at the airport in New York City on Wednesday, sporting leather Simone Rocha mules with feathers on the soles. Even though her furry footwear resembles bedroom slippers, the designer duds actually cost a whopping $560! The "FourFiveSeconds" singer paired her show-stopping shoes with loose-fitting boyfriend jeans, an Anthony Vaccarello gray sweatshirt and a Dsquared2 leather shearling coat. RiRi isn't the only fashionista to wear shoes with eye-catching details. Back in December 2014, Kim Kardashian wore a pair of Celine sandals, which stood out because of the rabbit fur-lined inner sole. The 27-year-old star isn't only creating buzz for her sassy style, but she's also starring in her own documentary. According to Deadline, Peter Berg -- who worked with the singer on "Battleship" -- is directing a film that will examine "Rihanna's life and how she's ascended to become a global icon," and will be a "character study. »

Liam Neeson Will Stop Making Action Movies in 2 Years

12 March 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the success of Taken in 2009, Liam Neeson carved out quite a niche for himself as an older action star. His career certainly careened down this path, with the iconic actor appearing in 9 more action-packed thrillers that includ The A-Team, The Next Three Days, Unknown, The Grey, Battleship, Taken 2, Non-Stop, A Walk Among the Tombstones and Taken 3. Now, on the eve of his latest 'geriaction' movie, as some have dubbed them, Liam Neeson has declared that he will stop making action movies in 2 years, if he is able to make it that far.

Good Morning America caught up with Liam Neeson to chat about this weekend's Run All Night, which may certainly leave some fans with a sense of deja vu, as it once again features the actor running with a gun as he sometimes screams into a cell phone. The 62 year-old confirms that his days as an action star are numbered though, »

Rihanna documentary to be helmed by Battleship filmmaker Peter Berg

12 March 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Rihanna will be the subject of a new feature-length documentary by filmmaker Peter Berg.

The Bajan star's rise to fame and her current status as one of the most recognised women on the planet will be documented in a theatrical release by the director's new production company Film 45.

The film hopes to be a contemporary take on the 1967 Bob Dylan rock documentary Dont Look Back, according to Deadline.

It has been described as an "unfiltered look into Rihanna's life and how she's ascended to become a global icon".

Berg added that he liked the idea of examining "a young artist at the top of her professional field", and that the documentary will be "much more a character study than a music film".

Rihanna and Berg previously worked together on theatrical release Battleship, which was released back in 2012.

It marked Rihanna's first foray into acting, with the star's follow-up »

Peter Berg to Direct Documentary About R&B Pop Star Rihanna

11 March 2015 8:50 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After giving R&B pop superstar Rihanna a pivotal role in his ridiculous action flick Battleship, director Peter Berg will turn the camera on her real life. Deadline reports the Lone Survivor and Hancock directing is launching a new production company called Film 45 with a specialty in non-scripted programming for television and film, and one of the first projects will be a theatrical feature documentary about Rihanna.

Film Review: ‘Home’

7 March 2015 4:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hey “Home,” E.T. called — he wants his huggable-alien concept back. Introduced in the film’s opening seconds, when he bumps that little boy with the fishing rod from the DreamWorks Animation logo, over-eager alien invader Oh represents Jeffrey Katzenberg’s best hope at harnessing some of his old pal Steven Spielberg’s intergalactic buddy-movie mojo. Unimaginative and downright predictable by grownup standards, but bursting with elements sure to appeal to younger auds — including cutesy character design, quotable alien catchphrases and solid musical/vocal contributions from Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez, who add a dose of diversity to the human cast — Dwa’s lone 2015 feature release should manage to squeak past the $100 million mark during a relatively competition-free spring, while reinforcing the studio’s recent standing as the Pepsi of the animation world: It’s potable, but a distant second to the real thing.
