'Borg Vs McEnroe', 'Rita Hayworth', 'Mortal' among Ascot Cannes buys

26 May 2016 4:03 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Deals with Im Global, Sf Studios and Radiant Films.

Swiss distributor Ascot Elite has closed deals on a hat-trick of anticipated titles fresh from the Cannes Marche including sports biopic Borg Vs McEnroe, Elizabeth Banks-starrer Rita Hayworth With A Hand Grenade and André Øvredal’s fantasy thriller Mortal.

Ascot Elite has acquired all rights for German-speaking Europe (Germany, Switzerland and Austria) to the newly announced Borg Vs McEnroe.

The film, to be directed by Janus Metz, starring Shia Labeouf as John McEnroe, Sverrir Gudnason as Bjorn Borg and Stellan Skarsgard as Borg’s coach.

The film, which is sold by Sf Studios, centres on the rivalry between the two tennis stars, who met in 14 matches between 1978 and 1981, each winning seven apiece. But it is the 1980 Wimbledon final that became the stuff of legend, and is considered to be one of the greatest tennis matches of all time.

Preacher: 'It's bigger than Breaking Bad. It's a romp'

20 May 2016 9:09 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It’s got a minister with superpowers, a hard-boozing vampire – and it’s the most kickass show of the year. Preacher’s star Dominic Cooper and creators Seth Rogen and Sam Catlin talk cow’s blood, chainsaw attacks and turning God into a villain

Seth Rogen knows how to create a smash hit. “You just cast British people,” he says. “That’s what you do on TV.” For Preacher, one of the most anticipated series of the year, he and his comedy partner Evan Goldberg tapped up Dominic Cooper for the title role – Jesse Custer, a small-town minister in Texas who’s trying to live a noble life when a vampire and some gangsters sent by God drop on his doorstep.

Cooper’s not the only one working on his deep-south lilt; Joe Gilgun of This Is England fame plays an Irish vampire named Cassidy who becomes Jesse’s best »

Review: Why Seth Rogen's 'Preacher' was smart to move away from the comics

17 May 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We live in an age of miracles when it comes to allegedly unadaptable books actually being adapted. For years, fantasy fans assumed no one could do right by George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books, but then Game of Thrones became a phenomenon for readers and non-readers alike. Diana Gabaldon's Outlander books seemed too larded with historical detail (and the occasional extremely graphic rape scene) to seem plausible as a TV show, but the Starz version has won over most of her audience. Now comes AMC's Preacher, based on an acclaimed '90s comic book series, by writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon, whose apparent barriers to adaptation are so numerous and daunting that they make A Song of Ice and Fire look like Bridget Jones' Diary. The comic is deeply offensive on both spiritual and aesthetic levels — its recurring cast includes both »

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:

Studiocanal Buys Into Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sunny March, Urban Myth, Spain’s Bambu

4 April 2016 2:19 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cannes – Vivendi’s film-tv contents powerhouse Studiocanal has taken a 20% stake in Benedict Cumberbatch’s production company Sunny March TV and “Atlantis” producer Urban Myth Films, both based out of London, plus a 33% shareholding in Spain’s Bambu Producciones (“Velvet,” “Gran Hotel,” “Refugees”), producer of Netflix’s first original series in Spain.

Announced by Studiocanal chairman-ceo Didier Lupfer Monday at a Studiocanal MipTV press conference, all deals give Studiocanal distribution-sales rights to its new partners’ productions.

Equity stakes near double from five to eight Studiocanal’s portfolio of TV production houses. They also further Vivendi chair Vincent Bollore’s vision of Vivendi as Europe’s foremost contents factory, building up Europe-based talent-driven production partnerships, as well as, it seems, a pan-European pay TV platform network. Studiocanal now has over 100 TV projects in development, Lupfer said at Cannes.

Kill Your Friends Review

31 March 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Music is an ever-changing business and that business is fickle. Few lines of work are more cut-throat than the music biz and Hollywood loves to accentuate that about it’s sister industry. It’s a fascinating, frustrating free-for-all watching the players and heavy hitters crossing lines and breaking rules, all vying for the next big hit song or hot band. Ethics, morals, loyalty… these have no place here.

Kill Your Friends is the newest film to examine these escapades, written by and based on John Niven’s novel, the film is directed by Own Harris, who cut his teeth making episodes of edgy television shows like Misfits and Black Mirror. Harris definitely brings an edgy style to the film, one that is both unique and influenced by modern masters, undoubtedly including Danny Boyle among a few others.

'American Psycho' at 25: Bret Easton Ellis on Patrick Bateman's Legacy

31 March 2016 7:52 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Before American Psycho came out, 25 years ago this month, it was already the most controversial novel of the Nineties. Its vivid depictions of gruesome murders of women, men, children and animals preceded wherever it went. The original publisher dropped it and told author Bret Easton Ellis to keep the money — but to please go away. The New York Times titled its book review "Snuff This Book!" On the opposite coast, Los Angeles Times begrudgingly wrote that "Free Speech Protects Even an 'American Psycho.'" The National Organization of Women attempted to organize boycotts. »

Ruth Negga: ‘I never fitted anywhere – in life or in Hollywood’

17 March 2016 10:07 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

From small parts in 12 Years a Slave and Misfits to starring roles in AMC’s upcoming TV series Preacher and hotly tipped new films Iona and Loving, the actor talks industry diversity and complex characters

On a bright winter morning, actor Ruth Negga sits in the corner of a Soho restaurant, arms folded over a jumper on which two embroidered swifts are wheeling across a grey sky. Although she had small parts in 12 Years a Slave and World War Z, and recurring ones in Misfits and Marvel’s Agents of Shield, she enjoys relative anonymity. This time next year – after the release of a film (Loving) that has already been named a contender for the Oscars, as well as a TV series (Preacher) from the makers of Breaking Bad – it will not be so easy.

Yet Negga, 33, does not appear to be at ease today. She speaks cautiously, in a gentle Limerick lilt, »
