Helmer Zwart Treks to Norway’s Arctic Circle for ’12th Man’ Shoot

26 August 2016 4:35 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Director Harald Zwart, who last made a feature in the country eight years ago, has returned to Norway with “The 12th Man,”which has begun its local shoot for producer Aage Aaberge and Nordisk Film Production.

Co-produced by Norway’s Motion Blur (co-owned by Zwart), the $6.8 million tells the story of Norwegian war hero Jan Baalsrud, who was one of 12 Norwegian resistance fighters crossing the North Sea on a fishing boat, to blow up the Bardufoss Airport in March 1943, during the Nazi occupation. Their boat is discovered,  and the saboteurs blow it up, trying to escape in a smaller boat. But 11 of them are captured, and killed by the enemy; only 25-year-old Baalsrud manages to escape, and after hiding in a snow cave on the fjell for two months, he is able to cross the border to neutral Sweden.

Zwart started shooting north of the Arctic Circle in April, starting with the ending. »

Dwayne Johnson To Produce Son Of Shaolin For Sony

23 June 2016 3:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

So, by my count, the indefatigable Dwayne Johnson is essentially booked straight through to the year 2025, or thereabouts – and he’s still adding projects to his mighty slate. With starring roles announced on what seems to be a weekly basis, the actor is also working to expand his presence behind the camera – and the newly planned Son Of Shaolin will fall into that category, with Dwayne Johnson on board as producer.

The film will be based upon the yet-to-be-published graphic novel of the same name, written by Jay Longino. Since this source material has not yet hit the stands, plot details are scarce. But, as per Deadline, it will tell “a contemporary Kung-Fu story that intertwines Shaolin mythology with many of the current issues faced by teens growing up in gentrifying neighbourhoods.” Author Longino will also write the script, but the director’s chair apparently remains vacant at this time. »

18 May 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Warren Beatty was last in front of a camera 15 years ago; 18 years have passed since he last directed a movie; and it's been even longer since Beatty, 79, first flirted with the idea of making a movie that involved legendarily elusive and eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes. Now, in an exclusive interview with Beatty, People and Entertainment Weekly has learned that all three of those streaks will finally come to an end on Nov. 11, when Fox releases Rules Don't Apply - an unconventional love story set in 1958 Hollywood which the Oscar-winner wrote, directed and produced. He will also appear in the film as Hughes himself. »

TrustNordisk Enlists Harald Zwart’s ‘The 12th Man’ (Exclusive)

10 May 2016 8:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

TrustNordisk has come on board helmer Harald Zwart’s “The 12th Man,” a WWII-set drama telling the true story of Norwegian resistance hero Jan Baalsrud, who was trained by the British to fight the Nazis.

Scripted by Petter Skavlan (“Kon-Tiki”), “The 12th Man” is set in northern Norway and chronicles the journey of Baalsrud, who was the only one out of 12 resistance fighters, to escape the Germans following a failed raid at Bardufoss in 1943. The movie centers around Baalsrud’s relationship with his Norwegian countrymen, who helped him survive in the wilderness and reach neutral Sweden while being tracked down by the Gestapo.

Zwart said he and his wife, who is producing this film, bought the rights to the book 15 years ago. “This story is a natural treasure for Norway. It’s a great survival story; it sheds light on all the people who helped Baalsrud. They were the people in the country, »

Freeform Is Stocking Up On Superhero Shows, Announces Plans For Misfits Remake

7 April 2016 2:39 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Okay, remakes are dangerous beasts, but can we have a moment of silence in the hopes that this particular one will be awesome? Following an announcement earlier today that Freeform (formerly ABC Family) would join in the Marvel Cinematic Universe game with the series Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, the network has now revealed it is developing a remake of the unabashedly awesome UK superhero (kind of) series Misfits.

The creators of the redo will be Gossip Girl co-creators Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz, the latter of which also had his hands in creating The O.C. and Chuck. Since this is very, very early-goings, there’s no news regarding casting, story (will this just be season one, again?), or how loyal the tone will be considering the glitzy atmosphere of Freeform.

Here’s the official description of the remake from the network:

Lynn and Curtis of Mockingbird Pictures will produce along with Miller, who is also financing through her company Sparkhouse Media. Principal photography will commence at the end of March in Los Angeles.

Shadowhunters: A Behind The Scenes Look

16 March 2016 4:06 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Article Excerpt Written by & Copyright Edward Gross From its debut earlier this season, the Shadowhunters TV series has worked its magic, ensnaring large audiences and consistently building its fervent fan following. Not really surprising considering that it's based on Cassandra Clare's best-selling (36 million copies in print) The Mortal Instruments books, the latest spin-off of which, Lady Midnight, was recently published. And even with a failed big screen adaptation in the form of 2013's The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones in the mix, the franchise continues to grow in popularity - a point exemplified by the fact that the show has officially been renewed for a second season.   "Listen, I think you have the marriage of the two most important components in being successful," offers executive producer/director McG. "One is archetypal story. I mean, come on, it's the Skywalker story. It's Peter Parker. It's everything I love. That's what »

Shadowhunters Flexes Divine Power To Secure Second Season At Freeform

14 March 2016 9:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three years ago, Screen Gems and Entertainment One’s The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones failed to ignite a newfound Ya franchise in the way the studios had hoped. But in circling back to Cassandra Clare’s novel series and all the human-angel hybrids within, Freeform has crafted a new spin on the source material in the form of Shadowhunters.

With a first season now under its belt and a cult audience in tow, the network has renewed the sci-fi series for a second outing, ensuring that it will outlive its cinematic brethren after all.

Word comes by way of the Shadowhunters Facebook page, which recently featured a Q&A session with the core cast and crew. There, it was confirmed that Freeform will pick up Constantin Film and showrunner Ed Decter’s sci-fi drama, with the likes of Katherine McNamara, Dominic Sherwood and Alberto Rosende all primed to reprise their respective roles. »

'Rams' Composer Atli Örvarsson Wins Best Film Score at the 2016 Harpa Awards

18 February 2016 5:23 PM, PST | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

Icelandic cinema scored one more victory at the 2016 Harpa Awards, which took place at the Nordic Embassies during Berlinale on February 15, 2016.  Composer Atli Örvarsson won the award for Best Film Score for the Icelandic film "Rams," while Johann Johannson took home the Honorary Award.

“The award for Best Film Score goes to a man with a unique sound,” said the jury who consisted of Thomas Robsahm, Konrad Sommermeyer and Christineauf der Haar.  “The accordion perfectly matches the loneliness, the nature and the sound of the sheep calling out for each other - the bleating. The music, the atmosphere and the pictures fit perfectly together. It feels as if the director and the composer really are in close contact – and telling their story together.”

Grímur Hákonarson's "Rams" took home the Un Certain Regard Award at last year's Cannes Film Festival and has since screened at numerous festivals around the world charming critics and audiences alike. Cohen Media Group released the film stateside earlier this month.

Atli has worked with Hans Zimmer in Los Angeles for a number of years. Since moving back to his original hometown Akureyri in northern Iceland, he has scored a number of Hollywood films and TV series as well as Icelandic films. 
The film "Rams" was coincidentally shot in the remote countryside village where his mother grew up and is based on a true story about two elderly brothers living on the same farm and leading a very rural countryside life - but have not spoken to each other for many decades. 
Atli is the son of Iceland´s most distinguished accordionist Örvar Kristánsson who passed away last year. Atli created the score to a large degree using his father’s old accordion which is heavily featured in the score.

Atli’s credits include orchestrating and writing music for some of Hollywood’s biggest projects, including the "Pirates of the Caribbean" series.  He has contributed music to films from "Angels and Demons" to "The Holiday. As a composer, Atli Örvarsson displays musical diversity throughout his action-film scores in "The Eagle," "Vantage Point," "Babylon A.D.," the Morgan Freeman caper "Thick as Thieves," "The Fourth Kind," and the Nicolas Cage medieval fantasy "Season of the Witch."  Atli’s most recent credits include "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," the dark and edgy film "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters," the drama/thriller "A Single Shot" starring Sam Rockwell, the hit NBC series "Chicago Fire" and "Chicago Pd," and working with Hans Zimmer to contribute music to the Zack Snyder's Superman reinstallment "Man of Steel."

The Harpa Awards were invented in 2009. The aim was to put a spotlight on Nordic talent, skills and know-how and to promote the great Nordic film talents in music and acting for the international film industry and thereby strengthening the opportunities for cooperation between the Nordic countries and the international film market.  More information you can visit  http://www.nordicfilmmusicdays.com/

Shadowhunters episode 3 review: Dead Man's Party

Despite a slight uptick in quality, Shadowhunters is still disappointingly far, far from the show it could have been...

This review contains spoilers.

1.3 Dead Man's Party

It’s not saying much, but this was the best episode of Shadowhunters so far. With most of the major characters introduced and most of the basic rules of the universe already established, there was a bit more breathing room for things to happen. And with most of the worst aspects of the show pushed discreetly out of sight, there was even time to have some fun.

So, again, we pick up pretty much exactly where the last episode left off, with Simon being abducted by vampires who think Clary knows where the Mortal Cup is and quite fancy nicking it for themselves. That sense of continuity is quite nice; it can be disconcerting to feel like characters in a TV »
