Joseph Kosinski Sets Sights On Yarnell Hill Wildfire Movie No Exit

29 January 2016 2:01 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the rebooted Tron universe now all but dead over at Disney, director Joseph Kosinski has set his sights on Lionsgate’s No Exit, a real-life drama based on the tragic events that ensued when lightning struck Yarnell Hill in Arizona and ignited a vicious wildfire three years ago.

Best known for his work across Tron: Legacy and Tom Cruise-fronted sci-fi flick Oblivion, Variety reports that Kosinski will partner with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura on the feature film, which will mark the director’s first foray behind the lens to tackle a genre other than science fiction – and what a departure it is.

Working from a script penned by Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down), No Exit is poised to orbit around the Granite Mountain Hotshots, a tight-knit group of firefighters that were left scrambling to control a raging wildfire in 2013 that almost wiped out their entire crew. At its peak, »

Kosinski To Direct Firefighter Tale "No Exit"

29 January 2016 6:58 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Tron: Legacy" and "Oblivion" director Joseph Kosinski is set to leave behind the sci-fi worlds of that film in favor of a new fact-based firefighting drama feature "No Exit" for Black Label Media.

The true story tale deals with one of the worst firefighting disasters in American history - a tragic wildfire in Arizona in 2013 that saw over 600 firefighters tackling a blaze that grew to 8,400 acres.

Due to fast-changing winds and 2,000-degree heat, all but one of a twenty-man wildfire fighting specialist team named Granite Mountain Hotshots perished.

"Black Hawk Down" scribe Ken Nolan is penning the script, while Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Mike Menchel, Dawn Ostroff and Jeremy Steckler will produce. Shooting could kick off as early as this Summer.

Joseph Kosinski to Direct Ken Nolan’s Firefighter Pic ‘No Exit’ (Exclusive)

28 January 2016 3:48 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Black Label Media, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Conde Nast Entertainment and producer Mike Menchel have tapped Joseph Kosinski to direct the Ken Nolan-scripted “No Exit.”

The pic tells the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, a group of firefighters that faced one of the deadliest wildfires in history in order to save an Arizona town, resulting in the tragic death of 19 crew members.

Nolan developed the story on spec with the producers.

Di Bonaventura, Erik Howsam, Jeremy Steckler, Dawn Ostroff, Mike Menchel, Black Label Media’s Molly Smith, Trent Luckinbill and Thad Luckinbill are producing the film. Black Label is financing.

Kosinski broke out with “Tron: Legacy” and followed that up with Tom Cruise’s “Oblivion.”

As for di Bonaventura, the film fits in his wheelhouse of action-packed films following projects like the “Transformers” franchise, “G.I. Joe” and the upcoming “Deepwater Horizon” starring Mark Wahlberg.

25 movie trailers that gave away way too much

From Terminator films and Jurassic World through to trailers with the ending in them...

One of the trailers for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is the latest to ignite grumbles about just how much is given away in promos for movies.

This list looks at 25 films where the trailer has given away more than it really should in its promos - and it goes without saying that spoilers lie ahead for each of the movies. Don't read or click on individual entries of films you've not seen if you don't want to be spoiler sullied!

25. Jurassic World

Director Colin Trevorrow was amongst those who expressed disappointment at this one particular promo for Jurassic World. In it, we see Chris Pratt riding on his motorbike, alongside velcoraptors that surprisingly don't appear to be eating him. Presented out of context, the scene just looked a little daft. But »

Ben Stiller Partners With Showtime To Tell A Super Sad True Love Story

26 January 2016 6:20 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been an awful long time coming – almost a year, in fact – though today Variety is reporting that Ben Stiller is finally making some headway with his small-screen rendition of Super Sad True Love Story.

Yes, remaining true to the old adage that true love never dies, Stiller will now take the reins of the project for Showtime, working from a script produced by Karl Gajdusek of Oblivion and Trespass fame. Pitched as a social satire, Super Sad True Love Story is based on the novel of the same name by Gary Shteyngart. Whisking viewers to a not-so-distant future where the American economy is on the brink of collapse, said Love Story revolves around Lenny Abramov and his relationship with an “impossibly cute Korean American woman” named Eunice Park.

Here’s the official logline lifted from Shteyngart’s acclaimed printed, bound media artifact:

A Perfect Day movie review: war is hellacious

15 January 2016 12:40 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

This compact little satire — set in 1990s Balkans — is a small, personal story about huge unfairnesses and injustices. Bleakly, bitterly, blackly funny. I’m “biast” (pro): love Benicio Del Toro and Tim Robbins

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

The title of the film is, ironically, the least ironic bit of absurdity four humanitarian aid workers confront in this bleakly bitter black comedy set in the Balkans in 1995. (One unintentional bit of bleakness: the reminder that 1995 is 20 years ago.) The three veterans — Mambrú (Benicio Del Toro: Sicario, Guardians of the Galaxy), B (Tim Robbins: Welcome to Me, Life of Crime), and Katya (Olga Kurylenko: The Water Diviner, Oblivion) — may come from very different parts of planet Earth, but they are united in their comparative privilege, relative to this one small »
