Casting Net: 'Game of Thrones' vet Rose Leslie joins Vin Diesel project

11 July 2014 4:19 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

Game of Thrones alum Rose Leslie is set to join Vin Diesel in The Last Witch Hunter, a supernatural thriller about a “semi-immortal” witch hunter (Diesel) who teams up with a witch (Leslie) to take down a more evil witch. And, despite being mortal enemies, the witch and the witch hunter also flirt with romance. Breck Eisner is directing the Summit pic, which recently got a polish from Dallas Buyers Club writer Melisa Wallack. [THR]

Gary Oldman Is Closing In On Criminal

11 July 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s true what they say – talent attracts talent. Further to the news that Kevin Costner is climbing aboard Ariel Vromen’s next directorial effort, Criminal, it now seems that powerhouse actor Gary Oldman is also looking to catch that ride.

The action-thriller, which sees the memories, knowledge and skills of a dead CIA operative transplanted into a prison inmate in an effort to complete a dangerous mission, comes from screenwriters Douglas Cook and David Weisberg – both of whom wrote Double Jeopardy. Ariel Vromen takes the helm for the first time since 2012’s The Iceman. Kevin Costner is said to be locked on to the role of the prison inmate, while Oldman would play a CIA chief.

If the film comes together successfully in this way, it becomes one of the more interesting projects to enter the pipeline. Firstly, the plot would suggest an interesting subversion of the usual good guy/bad guy roles. »

Gary Oldman set to join Kevin Costner in thriller Criminal

11 July 2014 2:17 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Gary Oldman is set to join Kevin Costner in Criminal.

The Dawn of the Planet of the Apes actor is in negotiations to play a CIA chief in the Millennium Films thriller, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Iceman writer and director Ariel Vromen has signed on as director of the film, which was written by Douglas Cook and David Weisberg.

The movie follows a dangerous prisoner, played by Costner, who has the memories of a dead CIA operative implanted in him in a bid to stop a potentially catastrophic threat.

Oldman recently apologised multiple times for anti-Semitic remarks he made during a Playboy interview, where he defended Mel Gibson for his past comments.

"Once I saw it in print, I saw that it was insensitive, pernicious and ill-informed. I am a public figure, I should be an example and inspiration and I am an a-hole. I am 56. I should know better. »

Snowpiercer movie review: hunger train

10 July 2014 6:53 AM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Hauntingly grim, full of appalling ironies and awful truths. This is most definitely not the feel-good movie of the summer. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m a big Sf geek

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

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

There’s a reason why Snowpiercer — which could have, theoretically, easily been a centerpiece summer film for a major Hollywood studio — is getting handled with the timid kid gloves of an arthouse release by the industry, quietly dribbling into a few cinemas here and there instead of getting a big opening-weekend push out onto three thousand screens. It’s a reason that has a lot to do with what the film has to say about human nature, hope, despotism, and a revolutionary spirit that might want to counter that despotism. What Snowpiercer is about offers too harsh »

Small films released on the same day as major blockbusters

8 July 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Some great films were released on the same day as such recent hits as The Dark Knight Rises and Frozen. Here are a few of them...

Odd List

The 3rd July 2013 saw the release of Disney's The Lone Ranger, its larger-than-life western starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer. Its theatrical debut marked the end of a lengthy and difficult production, stories from which had been hungrily served up by the media - the previous summer was dominated by news stories of its spiralling budget, which was thought to have crossed $250m. Nevertheless, the 2013 blockbuster season should, in theory, have marked a fresh start for Disney, as it spent a reported $150m on marketing The Lone Ranger. But the House of Mouse hadn't counted on the popularity of another film launched on that exact same day in July: Universal's animated sequel, Despicable Me 2.

Costner To Swap Brains For ‘Criminal’?

18 June 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As if one barmy high concept flick wasn’t enough, Kevin Costner looks likely to star in the sci-fi-tinged Criminal from director Ariel Vromen. The leading man of 3 Days To Kill could soon be seen as a murderer who takes part in a radical experiment to avoid prison. What will get him out of those potentially awkward soap-fetching situations? Why, having his brain replaced with that of a freshly-slain field operative of course!

The flatly-named script is by Douglas Cook and David Weisberg and amongst the producers are Chris Bender and J.C. Spink, who most recently brought us We’Re The Millers and horror comedy Zombeavers (think zombies, then beavers… Zom-Beavers!). Their eclectic involvement doesn’t give much clue as to the tone of the new film, but Vromen helmed The Iceman, which indicates a certain level of straight-facedness. And in Costner the team may have found the perfect candidate »

Kevin Costner Circling Ariel Vromen’s Criminal

18 June 2014 2:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Costner comeback continues with news that the Academy Award winner is in negotiations to take the lead role in the sci-fi thriller Criminal – currently being developed by Millennium Films. The film would see the actor as an unpredictable and dangerous character, who finds himself in the unusual predicament of being needed for action on the government side of the law. The knowledge and skills of a deceased CIA operative are implanted into his brain, and the shadowy organization asks him to finish the mission.

Criminal has Ariel Vromen attached to helm the project. Having made his first feature film – Simple Lies – in 2005, his most high profile directorial (and co-writing) effort to date has been 2012’s The Iceman – the true story of a contract killer – starring Michael Shannon, Chris Evans, James Franco, Winona Ryder, Ray Liotta and David Schwimmer.

Though the plot synopsis perhaps sounds like a Bourne Identity meets Strange Days kind of story, »

Captain America: The Winter Soldier review: politics in our peanut butter

24 March 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Stuns me with its scathing commentary on what is happening in the real world today, wrapped up in what is some of the most delicious, most comic-booky fantasy ever. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the first movie, love Chris Evans, love the Avengers series

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

I saw an ad on British TV last Friday night — it came, perhaps unsurprisingly, during a break in the broadcast of the latest episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. — in which Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury helped British ISP Sky Broadband cheer on its new automatic censoring filters… the ones that new customers have to opt-out of if they don’t want them, and that have been found to block legitimate sites, including those offering rape counseling, sex education, and legal file sharing. (You can watch that ad here.) Is S.H.I.E.L.D. pro-censorship now? »

Horror Anthology ‘Fear Paris’ Teaser Trailer

4 February 2014 11:47 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Dark gothic cityscape, an accordion, a mime, this is most definitely Paris. The teaser trailer for Fear Paris, a horror anthology from directorial trio Joe Dante (Gremlins), Xavier Gens (Hitman) and TimoVuorensola (Iron Sky). Based on this teaser, which isn’t actually of footage from the film as that is yet to start shooting, the film has the potential to be phenomenal. The trailer below presents us with a short story in and of itself as we see a group of mimes, with the ability to use their powers to create invisible weapons, go in search of their lost tongues. That in itself is a wonderful premise, and the aesthetics are very engaging.

Here’s the official press release:

The producers behind Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and The Iceman join forces on the genre bending Fear Paris, an ambitious new film of unique interconnected stories exploring the dark underbelly of the city of lights. »
