Eva Green eyed for Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

29 July 2014 5:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

French starlet Eva Green – fresh off her appearance in Robert Rodriguez’ latest Sin City chapter – is currently in talks to reunite with her Dark Shadows director Tim Burton for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. The movie – which is an adaptation of Ransom Riggs’ debut novel – tells the story of Jacob, a young boy who following a horrific family tragedy follows clues that take him to an abandoned orphanage on a Welsh island, where he must protect a group of orphans with intriguing powers.

The book – originally published in June 2011 – has been listed on the New York Times bestseller list. Eva Green is set to play the titular role, who is somewhat of a guardian to the orphans in their struggle against strange creatures hell bent on destroying them.

Jane Goldman (Stardust, X-Men: First Class) penned the screenplay with Peter Chernin (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Oblivion) on production duties. »

Watch: Pierce Brosnan is Tough in Full 'The November Man' Trailer

23 July 2014 11:16 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You know we use to call you? The November Man. Because after you passed through, nothing lived." After being James Bond for four films, Pierce Brosnan is back in action mode in The November Man. We've already seen a teaser trailer for the film, and now the theatrical trailer shows off even more of the action thriller. While the plot seems generic, there's still something about this that seems appealing. Maybe it's just having Brosnan in this kind of role again at an older age, not unlike Liam Neeson. The supporting characters leave something to be desired, but that doesn't seem like it's ruining anything all that much. Watch below! Here's the full trailer for Roger Donaldson's The November Man, originally from Apple: The November Man is directed by Roger Donaldson (The Bank Job, Thirteen Days) and written by Michael Finch (Predators) and Karl Gajdusek (Oblivion), based on a »

The 6 Best Film Scores of 2014 (So Far)

9 July 2014 2:36 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Far be it from me to make any grand sweeping statements on the year in film this early, but as of July 2014, I would argue it’s already been a fascinating year for scores. Just look at blockbusters. We’ve heard both the invigoratingly new and the depressingly dull. Ambitious combinations have even produced a commendable failure here and there. Hollywood studios almost always take the safe road in their big-budget franchises, but the music attached to those tentpoles feels less restrained and not nearly as beholden to manageable cliches.

Thus far we’ve had a tremendous grab bag in film music (and I say this as someone who hasn’t yet seen Under the Skin), but what’s been the best to come out of it? Without further ado…

'Dumbo' Is Getting The Live-Action Treatment

9 July 2014 7:55 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Disney is bringing Dumbo back to the big screen. The studio is developing a, you guessed it, live-action take on its 1941 animated classic. Ehren Kruger, who wrote the Transformers franchise, has been hired to pen the script.

Dumbo is one of the shortest, but also most moving animated features in Disney's movie repertoire. The film (you know, just in case you forgot) tells the story of a young circus elephant who is ridiculed because of his enormous ears. According to THR, the new take will tell the original story but also include "a unique family story that parallels Dumbo's story."

Lately, Disney has been in the game of turning old animated classics into live action movies, and it has worked out for them thus far. Most recently, the studio released Maleficent, which is a re-imagining of the 1959 movie Sleeping Beauty. The pic grossed more than $630 million worldwide. And before that, »

Disney Developing Live-Action Dumbo Movie

8 July 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Disney is developing a live-action feature film adaptation of Dumbo, and you know how I know it's going to suck? Because it's being written by Ehren Kruger, who worked on all those terrible Transformers movie scripts. I'm not sure who could watch those Transformers movies and be like, "Wow! We've got hire the writer of this to write our movie!" Justin Springer is producing the film and he has worked on bringing films such as Tron: Legacy and Oblivion to life. 

I'm not the biggest fan of Dumbo. It might just be my least favorite of all the classic Disney animated movies. It's so damn depressing. The original film tells the story of a baby circus elephant who is made fun of for his big ears. His mother steps in to protect him at one point and is locked up for it. Dumbo ends up on the road with a »

Ehren Kruger Is Writing A Live Action ‘Dumbo’ Movie

8 July 2014 1:39 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ehren Kruger, the screenwriter behind films like Arlington Road, Scream 3 and the last three Transformers movies, has been hired by Disney to write the live-action Dumbo movie. After the massive success of their $600 million-taking Maleficent, which was released earlier on this year, and the future Jon Favreau directed The Jungle Book, the beloved tale of the big-eared elephant is the next classic Disney film to be adapted with real actors. Live-action versions of Cinderella and Beauty And The Beast are also in the works at the studio.

Kruger will also co-produce the film along with Justin Springer (Tron: Legacy, Oblivion).

The announcement of the Dumbo movie definitely makes us ask the question; which property will Disney pick on next? Robin Hood? The Black Cauldron? We can only hope.

Live-Action Dumbo In The Works With Transformers Scribe

8 July 2014 1:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As part of its on-going quest to devalue every happy cinematic memory from our childhoods, Disney is looking to turn its animated classic Dumbo into a live-action affair with the help of (wait for it) Transformers franchise writer Ehren Kruger. Because everyone knows that, when you want to make a movie about a kindly elephant with over-sized elephants, there’s no one better than the guy who gave us such gems as “There’s a missile in the living room,” “Prime’s taken my trophy case, and he will feel my wrath,” and my personal favorite, “Autobots, we’re going to prove who we are, and why we’re here” (and that’s just from Age of Extinction).

Justin Springer, who worked on Oblivion and Tron: Legacy, will be producing along with Kruger. Their version will adapt the original movie while “adding a unique family story that parallels Dumbo’s story. »

Disney Plans "Dumbo" Live-Action Remake

8 July 2014 1:04 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Disney's 1941 animated classic "Dumbo" is set to be the next film set to score a live-action remake by the Mouse House.

The original 64-minute film follows a baby circus elephant who is made fun for his large ears. When his mother steps in to protect him and is locked up for it, he ends up on the road with a mouse as his companion.

The mouse instills into Dumbo the idea that with the help of a magic feather, he can fly. In order to pad it out, the new version also includes a unique family story said to parallel Dumbo's story. The flying elephant himself will be a CG creation.

"Transformers: Age of Extinction" scribe Ehren Kruger is penning the script for the new version and will produce alongside Justin Springer ("Tron: Legacy," "Oblivion").

Live-Action Dumbo Remake in the Works at Disney; Transformers 4 Writer Ehren Kruger to Tackle Adaptation

8 July 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Surprising but, at the same time, not surprising.  Disney is planning a live action take on Dumbo to be penned by Transformers: Age Of Extinction writer Ehren Kruger (to be fair, he was under some non-narrative marching orders on that one).  Oblivion producer Justin Springer will co-produce alongside Kruger. If you're like me and it's been decades since you've seen the original Dumbo, you may not have easily recalled that this elephant can fly.  He can.  No matter, Disney is said to be confident that modern CGI can take care of such things.  I'm sure it can, but doesn't a live action flying elephant seem like an aesthetic nightmare come to life?  Hit the jump for more on the new Dumbo remake. According to The Hollywood Reporter, "the new take involves the adaptation of original movie adding a unique family story that parallels Dumbo's story."  Which makes sense. I sort »

Disney Developing Live-Action 'Dumbo' from 'Transformers' Writer

8 July 2014 11:51 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Disney is still all about turning their classic animated stories into live-action films. Cinderella is on the way next spring, followed by The Jungle Book and a developing new take on Beauty and the Beast. And now we can toss one more onto the pile as THR has learned that the studio is developing a live-action version of the 1941 animated classic Dumbo for the big screen. In what seems like an odd pairing, the studio has hired Transformers franchise writer Ehren Kruger to write the script and also produce the film with Justin Springer (Tron: Legacy, Oblivion). They're not planning some crazy sci-fi version of the story are they? Thankfully, the film will mostly stay true to the original, which some might not remember only clocks in at 64 minutes. While we'll still see the story of Dumbo, an outcast elephant with giant floppy ears separated from his mother after she »

Disney Developing Live Action ‘Dumbo’ Movie

8 July 2014 11:28 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disney is developing a live action “Dumbo,” based on the animated classic of 1941.

Transformers: Age of Extinction” scribe Ehren Kruger is writing the script that will build a family tale around the circus elephant who is ridiculed for his enormous ears and learns to fly through the help of his only true friend, a mouse.

The toon was Disney’s fourth animated film after “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “Pinocchio” and “Fantasia.” It’s also one of Disney’s shortest animated film at 64 minutes.

Ru? Instant Reaction Review Podcast Ep. 107 – Edge Of Tomorrow Review

7 July 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Edge of Tomorrow was probably the movie that we have most looked forward to in at least a year. But, even though we went in with high hopes, we were also awfully nervous that this could easily be a film that went sideways fast, and became something silly.

Luckily, despite a lot of negative audience reaction to the film’s ending, we weren’t disappointed at all.

We respond to listener questions (more than one), on Jonah Hill and his apology, and the casting of Gambit, and I share my own secret for famous people to rid themselves of the paparazzi forever.

We have a lot to say about Edge of Tomorrow, and we do talk about the ending, so be prepared for the fact that we eventually get spoilery. Perhaps most impressively, even though we both also loved Oblivion, Tom Cruise was really good. Somewhat surprisingly, even though a »

The Many Faces Of Tom Cruise

4 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

The subject of this week's quiz is Tom Cruise. Born on the third of July, Oscar-nominated for Born on the Fourth of July, he turned 52 this week. That doesn't stop him from appearing in action movies, though: he is currently visible in theaters with Edge of Tomorrow, and it is ironic that the film explores a topic of endless repetition, as indeed did his previous film Oblivion. For Tom often looks exactly the same between films, and actually consistently acts the same way too. And yet, and yet... It would be so easy to dismiss him, and each new film starring him, but he manages to pick collaborations with an impressive array of interesting directors. He also isn't afraid of the odd self-deprecating cameo,...
