Russo Brothers Hire Mike Larocca as President of Production Company

27 March 2015 2:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A week after coming on to direct two Avengers movies for Disney/Marvel, Anthony and Joe Russo have hired veteran exec Mike Larocca as president of their Sony-based Getaway Prods.

Larocca had been senior VP at Chernin Entertainment and is an executive producer on Melissa McCarthy’s upcoming comedy “Spy.” He also worked on “The Drop,” starring James Gandolfini and Tom Hardy; “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” starring James Franco and Andy Serkis; and the Tom Cruise sci-fier “Oblivion,” directed by Joseph Kosinski.

Prior to working at Chernin, Larocca was an executive at Spyglass Entertainment.

In his new post, Getaway and Larocca will work with with Ivan Reitman and Channing Tatum to produce a “Ghostbusters” movie. That project was unveiled earlier this month.

The news about Larocca was first reported by THR.com.

Cruise Performs Laugh-Out-Loud Stunts in MI5 Trailer (with Bonus Teaser)

24 March 2015 5:55 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' star Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' trailer: Movie stunt combo "Desperate times. Desperate measures," says Tom Cruise aka Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation trailer aka the Mission: Impossible 5 and/or MI5 trailer. Whatever you call it, that particular line could be read in a number of ways: Tom Cruise's superstardom is in the doldrums – at least that's what we hear from those who see reality only through U.S.-focused lenses – and he needs all the box-office help he can get. Hence, MI5. Hollywood is in dire need of a mammoth domestic blockbuster following a year of mediocre-performing tentpoles at the U.S. box office. Hence, MI5. The world's socioeconomic fabric is about to unravel. Hence, MI5 – so humankind can go with a bang. Not only with a bang, but with mirth as well. »

Tron 3 set to shoot in Vancouver this winter, Joseph Kosinski and Garrett Hedlund to return

11 March 2015 11:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After Tron Legacy, the long-awaited sequel to the 1982 classic Tron, debuted during the Christmas season in 2010, rumours have circulated that a third (and perhaps final) film would make its way to the big screen, with Legacy director Joseph Kosinski (Oblivion) continuously attached to the threequel without any concreate news or official confirmation from Disney, the franchise owners.

Well, yesterday Vancouver-based website VanCity Buzz reported that Tron 3 is going ahead, and that is it gearing up for a shoot this October in the city. Furthermore, both Koskinski and his Legacy star Garrett Hedlund are set to return, with Hedlund reprising his role as Sam Flynn, the son of Tron creator Kevin, played by Oscar winner Jeff Bridges in both films. There’s no word on whether Bridges will return in some form, or Olivia Wilde, who co-starred in Legacy as Quorra.

While never a massive box-office success, the original Tron »

‘Tron 3′ set to begin filming soon with Joseph Kosinski returning to direct

11 March 2015 9:10 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Don’t ever say that Disney doesn’t like getting more green.

It seems like the House of Mouse will actually be moving forward with a sequel to 2010’s Tron Legacy, according to a report by Badass Digest on Tuesday. The film starred Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, and Jeff Bridges and was a continuation of the original Tron from 1982.

The original report came from Vancity Buzz out of Vancouver, which reported that Tron 3 would be filming in Vancouver this fall with Hedlund set to return. Badass Digest has since also confirmed that the movie is happening and that director Joseph Kosinski will be coming back also.

The question that many are posing with this movie is why Disney would want to move forward with it even though the other film didn’t make as much money. Tron: Legacy barely brought back its budget and the film wasn’t a »

Tron 3 Could Shoot This Fall with Joseph Kosinski Back at the Helm

11 March 2015 7:28 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

For a long time it seemed as though any chance of Tron: Legacy getting a sequel was non-existent.  But according to a new report, that's not the case, and after some very quiet development, Disney is ready to shoot this Fall with the director returning.  Come inside for a little more information!

Well this is interesting.  According to some reports out of Vancouver, Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy and Oblivion) is gearing up to film Tron 3 at that location this Fall...just a few months from now.  What's crazy, is that from just about all we've heard until this point, was that Tron 3 was virtually dead, as Legacy had failed to perform as expected in the box office.  While rumblings of a third Tron movie has popped up over the years since (including a writer being hired back in 2011 for it), nothing ever seem to come of it.

Hot Rumor: 'Tron 3' Will Start Filming This Fall With Garrett Hedlund

11 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Dust off your Led suit and get ready to go back to the Grid, because the word on the street is that "Tron 3" is filming this fall.

According to Vancouver's VancityBuzz blog, "Tron 3" will begin filming on October 5, 2015, with Garrett Hedlund attached to reprise his role as Sam Flynn. Badass Digest got confirmation from a trusted source in the industry that the movie is a go, with "Tron: Legacy" director Joseph Kosinski returning as well. During an interview for "Oblivion" in 2012, Kosinski said, "I've said it would have to be our 'Empire Strikes Back' for me to come back and for me to pull the whole team back together. I think we do have that idea. We do have the idea that feels big and really blows the doors off this franchise."

It makes sense that Kosinski would return for another run, but Hedlund's run of dramatic roles »

Tron 3 rumoured to shoot this autumn

10 March 2015 11:49 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It looks like Tron 3 may be on after all, as a report suggests it'll be bringing Garrett Hedlund to Canada this October.

Since the release of Tron: Legacy back in 2010, there have been continual rumours and reports of a Tron 3. Director Joseph Kosinski - who's since made Oblivion, starring Tom Cruise - has continually declared his interest in making another Tron adventure, whilst Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde would be expected to pick up where the last film left off.

Appreciating that Tron films are hardly cheap to make, the project seemed to have stalled at Disney. But a fresh report now suggests that Tron 3 will be filming in Vancouver, with production starting on October 5th.

Furthermore, the report - which appeared in Van City Buzz - says that Garrett Hedlund will indeed be back, reprising the role of Sam Flynn in the movie.

Disney hasn't confirmed the story, »

Tim Burton Returning to Disney to Direct New Live-Action 'Dumbo'

10 March 2015 12:09 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last summer we learned that Disney was working on a live-action retelling of another one of their classic animated films, the flying elephant tale Dumbo. Transformers franchise writer Ehren Kruger was hired to write the script and also produce the film with Justin Springer (Tron: Legacy, Oblivion), and now The Wall Street Journal is reporting director Tim Burton is returning to the craze he helped kick off at Disney back in 2010 with Alice in Wonderland by getting behind the camera for this new take on the circus fairytale of sorts. And considering Burton's obsession with dark circus visuals, that's a pretty perfect fit. More below! However, the film is still early in development, and while we know it will mix live-action with computer generated effects, probably not unlike Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book in production now, there aren't any details on how this version will differ from the original. »

Tim Burton to Direct Live-Action ‘Dumbo’ for Disney

10 March 2015 11:51 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disney and “Alice in Wonderland” director Tim Burton are getting back in business, this time with “Dumbo.” The Oscar-nominated filmmaker is attached to direct a live-action version of the animated classic.

Ehren Kruger, who wrote the last three “Transformers” movies, recently turned in a draft. According to sources, Disney execs are very pleased with the script and wanted to quickly land an A-list director.

Justin Springer, who worked on “Tron: Legacy” as well as “Oblivion,” is producing with Kruger.

The original story followed a ridiculed baby circus elephant, who, with the help of a mouse, works to achieve his full potential. Burton’s film will be a mix of live action and animation.

Following the success of “Maleficent” and “Alice,” Disney has been busy developing several of its animated classics into live-action features. “Cinderella,” opening this Friday, is looking at a $60 million opening weekend, and the studio is also in »

New Projects: Leonardo DiCaprio, Barbie, and ‘Gran Turismo’

5 March 2015 9:32 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

New Projects is a weekly round up of movies and TV shows recently announced and currently in development for the near future. 

See, Netflix isn’t just in the business of producing multiple Adam Sandler movies. Their next big original film deal will likely help them compete even more with HBO, as they’re teaming up with Leonardo DiCaprio and his Appian Way Pictures to produce a series of environmental documentaries as Netflix originals.

DiCaprio executive produced Virunga, a documentary about mountain gorillas in the Congo, that was eventually released by Netflix and was nominated for an Oscar this year. Now DiCaprio will continue to produce or executive produce original documentaries or ones acquired through film festivals, all part of a multi-year deal between Netflix and Appian Way.

“Working with Netflix on Virunga has sparked a shared vision about projects that we want to develop and bring to viewers,” said DiCaprio via The Hollywood Reporter. »

Tron: Legacy Director Joseph Kosinski In Talks For Gran Turismo Video Game Movie

4 March 2015 1:14 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Joseph Kosinski has, to date, only directed two films: the shiny, bright Tron Legacy and the altogether more grimy Oblivion. The leap in quality from the first to the second was so substantial, however, his third seems like a movie worth waiting for.

But what that third movie will be has proven hard to pin down, with projects coming and going and never quite getting rolling. Now, though, he’s making a deal to direct Sony’s long-gestating movie version of the Gran Turismo video game.

Being a driving simulator, Gran Turismo has only the sketchiest of plots, and one that’s 98% cars going fast, 2% cars slowing down for corners. For a good while the plan was to make this movie about a video gamer who becomes an ace driver, but that was when Alex Tse was writing and things could be entirely different now Kosinski is coming on board »

Oblivion Helmer Joseph Kosinski Circling Sony’s Gran Turismo Film

3 March 2015 9:52 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Not deterred by the middling success of last year’s Need for Speed, Sony is pushing ahead with its big-screen adaptation of Gran Turismo, and today, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Oblivion and Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski has entered talks to helm the project.

While it’s not necessarily a done deal, as the outlet states the director is still in negotiations, early signs appear to be promising. Should Kosinski sing along the dotted line, he will work alongside Michael De Luca, Dana Brunetti, Josh Bratman, DeVon Franklin and Elizabeth Cantillon, who are all on board as producers.

“Kosinski has been itching for a racing movie for a while,” the website explains. “The director spent a couple of years developing a movie based on Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans, written by A. J. Baime, for Fox. Brad Pitt »

Joseph Kosinski To Helm 'Gran Turismo,' Steve McQueen Has Directed A Video For Kanye West And More

3 March 2015 6:20 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"Gran Turismo" is a slick, detailed, absolutely beautiful car racing video game with zero soul, so who better than Joseph Kosinski to take it on as a film project? The director behind the sleek and totally empty "Tron: Legacy" and "Oblivion" will get the adaptation off the ground for Sony. And while plot details aren't yet being disclosed, it will apparently "center on a video game player turned racer." Guess it can't be any worse than "Need For Speed," right? And in fairness to Kosinski, he was working on the racing drama "Go Like Hell" that might've teamed up Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise before it fell apart, so he's undoubtedly got a wealth of research and material to draw from. [THR] It's Yeezy season, so you can either complain about the weather or bring a jacket. Kanye West announced during his recent Oxford lecture that Steve McQueen has recently wrapped »

Live action Gran Turismo movie finds new director in Tron: Legacy helmer

3 March 2015 5:59 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

First announced back in 2013, a live action movie based off popular video game series Gran Turismo has been stuck in development hell, but it looks like it has found its way to second gear.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tron: Legacy and Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski is in final negotiations to direct the adaptation which will be developed with Sony and Columbia Pictures. The trade also states that the movie will not be focused solely on driving as per the game, but series lead designer Kazunori Yamauchi has said the film will be about video game player who becomes a racer.

Think The Last Starfighter but with less space.

Gran Turismo first debuted on the PlayStation back in 1997 and has been a flagship title for Sony’s home consoles with Gran Turismo 7 currently in development for the PlayStation 4. Watchman scribe Alex Tse had previously drafted a script for Gran Turismo »
