Filming for 'Divergent' confirmed to take place in Chicago

31 December 2012 7:22 AM, PST | Twilight Examiner | See recent Twilight Examiner news »

Divergent lovers rejoice! Chicago, the very heart of the five-factioned world has been officially selected as the filming location for the book-to-film adaptation of Veronica Roth's best-seller. As confirmed by the Chicago Sun Times, Illinois state governor Pat Quinn's office fought for the film's production to take place in the area and ultimately succeeded in drawing the filmmakers in. View slideshow: Shailene Woodley "They’ve been busy for months wooing a new blockbuster to Illinois," a source reports, adding that pre-production should begin in the next few months to develop a local crew. The fact that Divergent will be filmed in its literary location is quite a win for the city. Some other fellow young adult book-to-film franchises have utilized alternate locations for shooting than their book bases (like Beautiful Creatures in Louisiana rather than South Carolina and The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones in Toronto rather than New York City).

The Dog Stars Find a Home at Constantin Film

6 December 2012 2:44 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Constantin Film has acquired the rights to Peter Heller's novel The Dog Stars, which was published in August by Knopf. Take a look at the book's official description.

"A riveting, powerful novel about a pilot living in a world filled with loss-and what he is willing to risk to rediscover, against all odds, connection, love, and grace.

Hig survived the flu that killed everyone he knows. His wife is gone, his friends are dead, he lives in the hangar of a small abandoned airport with his dog, his only neighbor a gun-toting misanthrope. In his 1956 Cessna, Hig flies the perimeter of the airfield or sneaks off to the mountains to fish and to pretend that things are the way they used to be. But when a random transmission somehow beams through his radio, the voice ignites a hope deep inside him that a better life-something like his old life-exists beyond the airport. »

'Avatar', 'Star Wars', 'Avengers', 'Justice League': Franchised Hollywood of 2015

29 November 2012 9:14 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

2015 is loaded and it is beginning to look like the mushroom cloud of doom when it comes to Hollywood's ever-increasing love for franchises and marketing opportunities. Movies already slated for release include The Avengers 2 on May 1, Ant-Man on November 6 and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 on November 20 and that's just the beginning. Movies expected for 2015 include Star Wars: Episode VII, Justice League and Avatar 2, which James Cameron recently told Afp he hoped to have the scripts for both Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 completed by February and begin filming by the end of 2013. I also wouldn't be surprised if the follow-up to Skyfall ends up in 2015 or another G.I. Joe feature depending on the success of G.I. Joe: Retaliation, maybe a Jack Reacher sequel, Mission: Impossible 5, Fast and Furious 7, a sequel to The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and you know we'll have Paranormal Activity 7. The »

Marlene King and Lena Headey team up for "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones"

27 November 2012 10:40 AM, PST | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

Tags: Marlene KingLena HeadeyThe Mortal InstrumentsCassandra ClareIMDb

Pretty Little Liars showrunner Marlene King and beloved "You're a wanker, number nine!" actress Lena Headey have teamed up for a project I don't even need to elaborate on because when I said their names together in the same sentence, you knew you were going to drop ten dollars on it. But here are some details anyway: King has adapted Cassandra Clare's impossibly popular The Mortal Instruments book series for the big screen and she is joined in her endeavor by Headey, who plays the Shadowhunting mom of Clary Fray, a teenager who finds herself smack dab in the middle of a whole lot of supernatural high jinks one fateful evening in a Brooklyn nightclub.

Trailer Trash – Issue 18

22 November 2012 2:19 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Welcome to issue 18 of Trailer Trash our series showcasing the latest trailer releases – this issue once again features our all-new “excitement-o-meter” where we rate (in exclamation marks on a scale of 1 to 5) each and every trailer by how excited we are to see the film after watching it. This issue of Trailer Trash includes new trailers for Snitch, Jack the Giant Slayer, Dark Skies (no not the old TV series), The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and The Host 2.

Snitch

Dwayne Johnson stars as John Matthews, a businessman hit hard when his teenage son is wrongfully ensnared in a drug bust and threatened with a terrifying 10-30 years in federal prison (under the Us government’s draconian minimum drug sentencing laws). The only option to reduce the sentence is to “snitch.” A desperate Matthews makes a deal with the politically ambitious federal prosecutor (Sarandon) and infiltrates the operation of a »

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones – playing a familiar tune

21 November 2012 3:37 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

It's vaguely scary. It has a moody male lead. And a female protagonist with one facial expression. In its bid to become the next Twilight, this yarn for young adults ticks all the right boxes

Reading on mobile? Watch here

Now that the Twilight Saga has retired to the land of Things That People Will Retrospectively Be Ashamed of Liking, a vacuum has formed at the heart of the young adult movie market. Something has to fill it, but what?

Could it be The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones? It's one of a glut of Twilight-minded young adult films due next year, and its name is certainly impenetrable and silly enough to impress its key demographic – teenagers who think they're deeper than they actually are. But can The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones really go on to become the next Twilight? Let's run its new trailer past a tried and »

Today's Hot Trailer: The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Fights Off Demons

20 November 2012 7:07 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Move over Stephenie Meyer, another Ya book-to-movie franchise is (possibly) ready to take Twilight's place.

With The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 opening last weekend (and owning it too), there has been a scramble for other Young Adult adaptations or other undead-romantic movies to ride the wave of Twilight mania for similar potential success. With The Hunger Games already a lock to absorb some of the Twilight fandom, the first trailer for zombie rom-com Warm Bodies arrived last week, and, over the weekend, the first trailer for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones has debuted as well.

Based on Cassandra Clare's prolific young adult fantasy series, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones follows Lily Collins as teenager Clary Fray, who learns she is a descendent of clandestine order of half-angel warriors called Shadowhunters who protect the world from demons. Clary joins forces with fellow Shadowhunters Jace Weyland (Jamie Campbell Bower »

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Trailer

19 November 2012 3:15 PM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Now that The Twilight Saga has run its course, there are a handful of new movie franchises battling it out to try and capture the same young adult audience. The Hunger Games has already thrown down the gauntlet with a pretty massive debut earlier this year, but there is also Stephenie Meyer's The Host, Divergent starring Shailene Woodley, and now this movie: The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. This particular movie stars Lily Collins as Clary Fray, a teenage girl who finds out that her mother was actually a demon hunter and that she was being sheltered from this secret world. She must learn to embrace her newfound powers and save her mother from the forces of evil. Yeah, the premise sounds more than a little familiar, but I'm guessing that's part of the draw. Jared Harris (Mad Men) also co-stars along with Lena Headey, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Kevin Durand, »

The Shipping News: Fix-It Fic, Muchacha and Malec Hits the Big Screen!

Hi everyone! I’m Adri, back for another issue of The Shipping News and serving you up all of those Feels! So let’s get right to it.

Shipping Win of the Week: Destiel Reunion (For Real This Time)

Last time I was with you guys, I gave my ship of the week to Destiel even though I only knew about them vicariously. This week I come to you a full convert to weep and praise the trench-coat-wearing angels for the Dean and Cas reunion, for real this time. We had a reunion in Purgatory, of course, but here they’re back at home base, and boy are they happy to see each other! More than that though, we got some answers we've been waiting for since the season started.

As Dean so earnestly put it, he tried very, very hard to get Cas out of Purgatory and in »

Poll: Move over Twilight, make way for the next big Ya novel adaptation

17 November 2012 8:05 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

With the final installment of The Twilight Saga now out in Cineplex theatres, we turn our attention to the next big movie to come out of Ya literature. There’s plenty of contenders ready to fill the gap left by Twilight and become the next big thing. The movie pipeline is stacked with films based on teen-targeted novels (that adults love too) with some major productions currently filming and hitting the cinema in 2013 and beyond.

Some of the Ya-based films that are tops on our radar are Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight follow-up The Host with Saoirse Ronan which opens in March and whose first full trailer just debuted online. But before the The Host's aliens attempt to take over the Earth, we'll have February's Beautiful Creatures based on Kami Garcia’s novel with Emmy Rossum, Emma Thompson, Jeremy Irons, and Viola Davis, and the Tribeca Film Festival sensation Struck by Lightning »

Reject Recap: James Bond, ‘Mortal Instruments’ and One Direction

17 November 2012 8:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

This week saw the countdown to the end of the Twilight movies, though we didn’t pay it much attention. Kevin gave us a drinking game to play while watching the whole series in marathon form, but that’s it. Maybe we were all too busy still appreciating the greatness of the latest James Bond — a series that fortunately didn’t conclude after only five installments — or skipping through to wonder about the future, as in whether The Mortal Instruments is the new Twi-like sensation. We did, of course, review the final Twilight Saga film, and we remind and invite you to check out that and other reviews of new releases (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2; Lincoln; Anna Karenina; Price Check) as well as an interview with Anna Karenina director Joe Wright. We also watched a lot of trailer, including new spots for The Host (from Twi-lit author Stephenie Meyer), Oz: The Great and Powerful, The ABCs of Death »
