"Gravity" Producer In The "Demilitarized Zone"

15 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

"Gravity" producer David Heyman, along with "Mad Men" executive producers Andre and Maria Jacquemetton, continue developing a TV series adapting DC Comics' 'near future' title "Dmz" ("Demilitarized Zone") :

Published by DC Comics under their Vertigo imprint, "Dmz" debuted in 2005, with 72 original issues published over 7 years, created and co-illustrated (with Riccardo Burchielli) by Brian Wood.

"Dmz" is set in the near future, where a second American civil war has turned the island of Manhattan into a 'Demilitarized Zone', caught between the forces of the government and the secessionist 'Free States of America'.

The "Free States" movement began with an uprising of secessionist groups that formed a separate government in Montana before spreading across the country. 

The "Free Armies" and government military first met in combat at Allentown, Pennsylvania where the Free Armies won, then marched into New York. A planned evacuation of Manhattan goes wrong, but despite that, the »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Last Days in the Desert’

25 January 2015 11:36 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A filmmaker known primarily for his perceptive melodramas about women, from “Things You Can Tell Just By Looking at Her ” to “Mother and Child,” now turns his attention to a primal tale of fathers and sons — including the Son of Man himself — in “Last Days in the Desert,” a quietly captivating and remarkably beautiful account of Jesus’ time in the wilderness before the beginning of his ministry. Deliberately paced, sparely imagined and suffused with mystery, writer-director Rodrigo Garcia’s seventh feature is nonetheless quite lucid and accessible in its themes of empathy, compassion and sacrifice, and grounded by a Christ/Satan dual performance by Ewan McGregor that plays vastly better onscreen than it sounds on paper. While many will find the drama as arid as its parched surroundings, with a thoughtful and concerted marketing approach the picture might well appeal to art-minded nonbelievers and Christians open-minded enough to accept an off-Scripture narrative. »

‘Birdman’ Wins Top Producers Guild Award

24 January 2015 10:22 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Oscar-snubbed “Life Itself” and “The Lego Movie” win documentary and animation awards

Birdman” was named the best-produced feature of 2014 at the Producers Guild Awards on Saturday night, giving the daring Alejandro Iñárritu film new life in the Oscar race for Best Picture.

“Boyhood” was considered the most likely PGA winner and the Oscar leader, but the critical favorite now finds itself in the same spot “The Social Network” was in four years ago. That film swept the critics’ awards and the Golden Globes, but then lost the PGA to “The King’s Speech,” which rode a string of guild wins to victory at the Oscars. »

First Look at Leonardo DiCaprio in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant

24 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

20th Century Fox has released new first look photos from Alejandro González Iñárritu’s (Birdman) next movie, The Revenant.

Co-written with Mark L. Smith, the film is based on the novel of the same name by Michael Punke, and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy and Will Poulter.

Deep in the uncharted American wilderness, trapper Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is severely injured and left for dead by a traitorous member of his team, John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy). With sheer will as his only weapon, Glass must navigate a hostile environment, a brutal winter, and warring Native American tribes in relentless quest to survive and exact vengeance on Fitzgerald.

Based on a true story, shooting on the movie by cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki (Birdman, Gravity) began in September. The film has a release date of December 25, 2015 (limited); January 8, 2016 (wide).

The 'Gravity' Cinematographer Has Something Even Crazier Planned for Filming 'The Revenant'

21 January 2015 6:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Today Entertainment Weekly unveiled the first image of Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant, directed by Birdman's Alejandro González Iñárritu. And while it's cool to see the normally clean-shaven DiCaprio all grizzled up for this period piece about a frontiersman who seeks revenge against the men who left him to die after a bear attack, the image is far from the most interesting part of the story. The Revenant is being shot by Emmanuel Lubezki, the boundary-pushing cinematographer behind the distinctive looks of movies like Children of Men, Gravity, and most recently Iñárritu's own Birdman. And while Lubezki is known for being the master of long, complicated shots, he and his Birdman director have given themselves a different...

First Photos: DiCaprio In "The Revenant"

21 January 2015 11:14 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The first photos are out of Leonardo DiCaprio in "Birdman" director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's new period drama thriller "The Revenant," currently shooting in Calgary until April. The film is shot by "Gravity" cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki and uses only natural light in remote locations, which means only a few hours of filming can be done each day.

EW posted the shots from the true story film about an early 1800s frontiersman mauled by a grizzly bear and left for dead by his companions. Despite his injuries, he makes the 200-mile journey back to civilization to confront the men (Tom Hardy, Will Poulter, Domnhall Gleeson) who left him to die.

First Look at a Grizzled Leonardo DiCaprio in Revenge Film The Revenant

21 January 2015 10:27 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu is following up his Oscar-nominated film Birdman with another equally ambitious project. The Revenant tells the true story of a hunter (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) who is mauled by a grizzly bear and left for dead by his companions. But he survives, and embarks on a 200-mile hike to find the men who abandoned him (played by Tom Hardy, Will Poulter, and Domhnall Gleeson). But the crazy part is how Inarritu is filming this: he and his Birdman cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki (Gravity) are "shooting with only natural light in remote locations left untouched by mankind," which sounds like it would put a lot of pressure on everyone to capitalize on the few hours of filmable daylight they have to work with out there in the elements. 

EW has a couple first look photos from the production, as well as a brief interview with Inarritu, who spoke about »

If you think Birdman was extreme filmmaking, wait until you see what Alejandro González Iñárritu has in store for his follow-up. Shooting this month in Calgary (average nighttime low: 9 degrees) the writer-director has partnered with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy to tell the true story of Hugh Glass (DiCaprio), an American fur trapper and frontiersman in the early 1800s. After being mauled by a grizzly bear and left for dead, Glass made a heroic 200-mile trek back to civilization to find the men who abandoned him in his time of need, played by Hardy, Will Poulter, and Domnhall Gleeson. “He’s a brave, »

Kick-Ass scribe Jane Goldman to adapt DC/Vertigo comic Fables for Warner Bros.

21 January 2015 4:05 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

An adaptation of Bill Willingham’s popular Fables comic book series has been in the works for quite some time now, but never really gained traction. Today, however, the film’s producer offered up an intriguing and encouraging update.

We learned back in June of 2013 that A Royal Affair helmer Nikolaj Arcel (who was once on the shortlist for Marvel’s Doctor Strange) would be bringing the DC/Vertigo comic to the big screen, and according to producer David Heyman (Gravity, Harry Potter), that’s still very much the case. On top of that, the movie now has a new screenwriter, in the form of Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class scribe Jane Goldman.

Heyman dropped the news in a recent interview with Cbr:

Jane Goldman is working on a draft as we speak. Nik Arcel is attached [to direct]. He did a draft, and now he’s supervising Jane, who’s doing a draft. »

Kick-Ass Screenwriter Jane Goldman To Pen Fables Adaptation

20 January 2015 5:03 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A big-screen adaptation of Bill Willingham’s popular Fables comic series has been in the works at Warner Brothers for quite some time now, but has not had a substantial update in nearly two years. Thankfully, that’s now changed, as the film has gained a new screenwriter in the form of Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class and Kingsman: The Secret Service scribe Jane Goldman.

Goldman will pen a draft that builds upon the one written by A Royal Affair director Nikolaj Arcel, who jumped on board to helm the film back in 2013. The update comes from producer David Heyman (Gravity, Harry Potter), who assures us that Arcel is still involved and offers words of encouragement for those eager to see the DC/Vertigo comic brought to life:

Kick-ass Writer Jane Goldman Penning Fables Screenplay

20 January 2015 10:40 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I was pretty pissed off when ABC essentially stole the concept of Bill Willingham's terrific Fables comic series and turned it into Once Upon A Time. The fact that they'd been specifically considering a TV adaptation of Willingham's comic and then decided to just rip off the conceit was a total douche move on the network's part, and I didn't think we'd ever get to see an adaptation of Fables after that. But in June of 2013, we got word that DC Comics was looking to make a feature film version of the property. There haven't been any updates since then, but Comic Book Resources just spoke with producer David Heyman, who offered the latest news: Kick-Ass and Kingsman: The Secret Service writer Jane Goldman is writing the newest draft of the script.

First, here's a synopsis of the comic:

47 (Out of 350) Times People of Colour Contended for Oscars in 10 Years

16 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

And the Oscar nominees are ... the whitest since 1998.

That's the truth as far as the acting categories are concerned. For the first time in 17 years, not a single person of colour stands to win an acting Oscar. [The Atlantic says the last entirely white Oscar nomination list was in 1995. We'll let them duke out which year it is.]

We here at Moviefone Canada looked at Oscar winners and nominees from the past decade to see how they stack up against the upcoming 2015 ceremony. We restricted ourselves to the acting, directing and screenwriting categories.

The definition of "people of colour," of course, varies widely. But when it comes to Oscar nominations, we largely considered people who don't come from an all-white heritage within the last couple of generations.

We plugged the numbers ... and 47 out of 350 nominees in the past 10 years went to people of colour.

That's 13 per cent ... and it's not enough. Especially when U.S. government statistics show that white people (excluding Hispanics or Latinos) make up only 62.6 per cent of the country's population. »

16 dos and don'ts of travel in the movies: Hostel, 127 Hours, Hitchhiker's Guide

16 January 2015 3:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Do: check the instructions (Wild)

This month sees the release of Wild, based on Cheryl Strayed's memoir about her solo hike along the gruelling 1,000 mile Pacific Crest Trail. Cheryl (Reese Witherspoon) certainly doesn't make it easy for herself, buying the wrong type of gas cylinder for her stove and thus being forced to subsist on a diet of "cold mush."

Don't: give up (Touching The Void)

Consider the obstacles that Joe Simpson faced during his calamitous attempt to climb Peruvian mountain Siula Grande: a broken leg; a fall into a crevasse; and zero hope of rescue after partner Simon Yates left him for dead. And yet, as recounted in classic documentary Touching The Void, Simpson gritted his teeth and dragged himself through hell to reach safety.

Do: stay calm (Life Of Pi)

Travel is unpredictable. One minute, like Indian teenager Pi (Suraj Sharma), you're emigrating to Canada aboard a freighter. »

'Harry Potter' Producer David Heyman Talks the Big 'Paddington' Cast Change, Rowling's 'Fantastic Beasts' Script and More

15 January 2015 2:45 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

It’s pretty impossible for producer David Heyman to top the global success of the Harry Potter franchise, but it sure looks like he’s having fun trying. He’s since produced Alfonso Cuarón’s visually stunning Gravity and now it looks like he’s gearing up for another profitable franchise with Paddington-- and let’s not forget the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The legendary marmalade-addicted bear from deepest darkest Peru created by Michael Bond in the 1950s has received the big-screen treatment thanks to the VFX company behind Gravity and the voice of Ben Whishaw. Paddington (opening Friday) shows the young bear’s journey to the Brown family in London where he adapts to human life while getting himself into...
