Ward Pens "Cosmic Motors" For Bay & Warners

29 August 2014 4:38 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Warner Bros. Pictures and Michael Bay have picked Kyle Ward ("Machete Kills," "Agent 47") to write the screenplay for their "Cosmic Motors" project.

The story is based on a 2007 concept art book by German designer Daniel Simon that features futuristic vehicle designs. The book tells a story about the design and the purpose of his various futuristic vehicles.

Simon was the lead vehicle designer on "Tron: Legacy" and "Captain America: The First Avenger" as well as a concept illustrator on "Oblivion" and "Prometheus". He's also worked on futuristic concepts for companies like Bugatti and Lamborghini.

Bay is on board to produce the project. Ward is currently penning the launch film of Universal's "Arabian Knights" franchise.

Week in Review: ‘No Jokes’ in DC movies

29 August 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We can debate all day which comic book hero is cooler: DC or Marvel? Superman or Spiderman? Justice League or The Avengers? Batman or anyone who isn’t cool enough to be Batman? But it’s no question that Marvel has a serious leg-up on DC in the movie business.

Outside of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, DC has had a harder time making their characters stick and is even behind the ball in planning their lineup of films. Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel was one of the highest grossing films of last year, but it was forgotten as a dour, colorless, over-important mess as soon as it arrived. And yet this model may be the template DC is pursuing with all their future projects.

Drew McWeeny at Hitfix wrote a column saying that he’s heard numerous rumblings from Warner Bros. insiders that the policy for all their »

See 1920′s Jennifer Lawrence in new image from Serena

28 August 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new image from Susanne Bier’s Depression-era drama Serena has been released, featuring Jennifer Lawrence on horseback as the title character, Serena Pemberton.

Lawrence co-leads the film along with her American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley Cooper. The film hits UK cinemas on October 24, but still lacks a release date in the United States. The film went through an extensive 18-month editing process, and has failed to pick up a Us distributor. That means that despite a great cast and meaty dramatic material, Serena likely won’t have a chance to pick up any Academy Award nominations this fall, and may someday quietly get a direct-to-home video release in the States.

Directed by Susanne Bier (director of the 2010 Oscar winner Best Foreign Film, In A Better World), Serena stars Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Rhys Ifans (The Amazing Spider-Man), Sean Harris (Prometheus), Sam Reid (The Railway Man), Toby Jones »

Charlize Theron Rips Beauty Industry for Focusing on 20-Year Olds, Women Over 40 Ignored

28 August 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Charlize Theron is not too happy with the fashion and beauty industry for focusing on 20-somethig young women's beauty needs, while ignoring women over 40. Charlize thinks women only ''come into their prime'' in their 40s and wants to know why the beauty industry can't understand their needs, too. The 39-year-old 'Prometheus' star, who is dating Sean Penn, 54, says 20-year-olds ''have no f**king concept'' about life and believes the beauty industry should focus on older women. She told Women's Wear Daily (Wwd) magazine: ''It's ironic that we've built the beauty world around 20-year-olds, when they have no f***ing concept about wisdom, what life is about, having a few relationships below [their] belt and feeling hardships, to grow into [their] skin and feel confident within [themselves] and to feel the value of who [they] are, not because of a man or because of something like that. ''And I think that's such a beautiful thing. »

New Photos from Ridley Scott's 'Exodus: Gods and Kings'

28 August 2014 6:05 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

20th Century Fox has released some more new photos from director Ridley Scott's "Exodus: Gods and Kings," starring Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver, and Sir Ben Kingsley.

From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Prometheus) comes the epic adventure “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. Using state of the art visual effects and 3D immersion, Scott brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses (Christian Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.

Scott directed the Biblical epic story from a screenplay written by Steve Zallian, Adam Cooper, and Bill Collage.

"Exodus: Gods and Kings" is set to hit theaters on December 12, 2014.

15 Horror Franchises that Helped Define the Face of the Genre

27 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

There may be no other genre of film that juggles trends as often and openly as horror. One decade it’s the slasher; one decade it’s the ghost story; the next it’s found footage. The door does and will continue to revolve. That’s not going to change.

Fortunately for fans of this diabolical branch of celluloid, every now and then those shifts come on the heels of a landscape-altering production or the birth of a franchise destined to change the way we view film. We’ve seen movies evolve so much in the last 80-plus years it’s insane.

It’s almost hard to grasp, but it happens. And it often takes career-defining projects and game-changing films to make the shift a reality. Here are 15 horror franchises that enhanced or completely altered the face of horror as we know it.

Ridley Scott Talks ‘Blade Runner’ And ‘Prometheus’ Sequels

27 August 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director, Ridley Scott is spoilt for choice at the moment, with both scripts for the sequels to Blade Runner and Prometheus ready to roll.

Scott confirmed that he’s looking for Harrison Ford to return as Rick Deckard, the world weary bounty hunter who ends up forming a connection with the replicants he’s hired to retire in the 1982 dystopian neo-noir. Speaking about Blade Runner 2, Scott said:

“It’s written and it’s damn good. Of course it involves Harrison, who is a survivor after all these years.”

The Prometheus sequel is also ready for filming, although quite when this will happen is still unclear. Scott is currently busy with The Martian, starring Matt Damon, which is due for release in November 2015. It looks like he may start working on the Blade Runner sequel after The Martian, but then where does that leave Prometheus 2? He’d better get a move on. »

Ridley Scott: ‘Blade Runner 2’ and 'Prometheus 2' scripts are both ready

26 August 2014 3:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Ridley Scott has a lot on his plate — too much, one could argue, especially if you’re one of the fans eagerly awaiting sequels to two of his films: "Blade Runner" and "Prometheus." The director confirms to Entertainment Weekly that scripts and plans exist for both the announced "Blade Runner" and "Prometheus" sequels, with the former film in particularly good shape. “It’s written and it’s damn good,” he said of the "Blade Runner 2" script. “Of course it involves Harrison [Ford], who is a survivor after all these years — despite the accident.” But Ford’s "Star Wars" set injury isn’t what’s getting between Scott and the next "Blade Runner." Instead, it’s the Oscar-winning filmmaker’s increasingly busy schedule. His next film is called "The Martian," a Matt Damon-starring adaptation of Andy Weir’s novel about an astronaut stranded and left for dead on Mars. “It’s like 'Robinson Crusoe, »

Ridley Scott talks Blade Runner 2 and Prometheus 2

26 August 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, filmmaker Ridley Scott has spoken briefly about the proposed sequels to his sci-fi offerings Blade Runner and Prometheus, stating that Blade Runner 2 looks set to move forward, while Prometheus 2 seems to be suffering from scheduling issues.

With regards to Blade Runner 2, Scott stated that: “Blade Runner 2 is written and is damn good,” says Scott. “Of course it involves Harrison [Ford], who is a survivor after all these years – despite the accident [on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII]. So yes, that will happen.”

Scott is currently putting the finishing touches to Exodus: Gods and Kings and is gearing up to shoot The Martian with Matt Damon, which means he’s struggling to find time to fit Prometheus 2 into his schedule: “That’s the problem. I’ve got a lot of ducks in a row. But they’re all written.”

So, if Scott plans to direct Blade Runner 2 after The Martian, »

Review: Low-key drama in the English fenland propels debut feature 'The Goob'

26 August 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Venice - NBC's "The Office" rang frequent laughs from Dwight Schrute's beet farm, with glimpses of backwards Cousin Mose and his feral antics proving particularly fertile ground for comedy ("And as of this morning, we are completely wireless here at Schrute Farms, but as soon as I find out where Mose hid all the wires, we'll get all that power back on.") This kind of vaguely unsettling boys-on-the-farm vibe is played straight in "The Goob", a character piece that has atmosphere to spare, and whose minimal plot is helped along by the happily original setting; this might be the first film shot in Norfolk to premiere at Venice. Self-described as "a psychological Western" and set largely on farmland of sorts in the flat formerly marshy Fens in the East of England (think the reclaimed bits of the Everglades without the redeeming features of exotic wildlife or sunshine), The Goob is »

We hope you love sequels, because we’ve got all kinds of news about the next installments in franchises you already love in today’s roundup.

Ridley Scott Says Scripts For 'Blade Runner 2' And 'Prometheus 2' Are Written, He Just Has Figure Out Scheduling

26 August 2014 10:46 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As usual, Ridley Scott is juggling five thousand projects at once. He's currently wrapping up "Exodus: Gods And Kings" for release later this year, and this fall he'll begin rolling on the sci-fi film "The Martian" starring Matt Damon. But what about the long developing sequels to "Blade Runner" and "Prometheus"? Well, Scott promises both are coming, and he says that at least from a writing standpoint, they are ready to go. “It’s written and it’s damn good,” Scott told EW about "Blade Runner: Title To Be Determined." “Of course it involves Harrison [Ford], who is a survivor after all these years, despite the accident. So yes, that will happen.” That being said, Ford's involvement isn't confirmed by, at least not officially, but we suppose if the actor is willing to come back for "Star Wars," he will do anything.

Ridley Scott Updates 'Blade Runner' & 'Prometheus' Sequels' Status

26 August 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

This December, we'll see if Ridley Scott can finally deliver another great film by returning to the sword and sandal tale of Exodus: Gods and Kings (the trailer had impressive visuals, but felt a bit artificial otherwise). But he's got plenty of other projects on his future slate to keep him busy. The director's next film has been confirmed to be the sci-fi drama The Martian starring Matt Damon, but many are wondering when he'll get around to directing the developing sequels to his classic Blade Runner and the Alien prequel Prometheus. Well, Scott gave a brief update on the status of both sequels, giving us a vague timetable. When it comes to Blade Runner, Scott confirmed to EW that the script written by Hampton Fancher (co-writer of the original film) and Michael Green (of Green Lantern) is completed and just waiting for him to shoot it, "It’s written and it’s damn good. »

Ridley Scott Will Probably Direct Blade Runner 2 After The Martian

26 August 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ridley Scott is keeping quite active for a man in his 70s. He’s currently gearing up to release his Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings, and is also starting to get ready for production on The Martian (which begins shooting in November), his sci-fi film with Matt Damon. The prolific filmmaker doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon, either, as he recently told Entertainment Weekly that after The Martian, he’ll move on to Blade Runner 2.

According to Scott, the film has a completed script and it’s “damn good” :

“[Blade Runner 2] is written and it’s damn good. Of course it involves Harrison, who is a survivor after all these years—despite the accident. So yes, that will happen.”
