Danny McBride featured in new Alien: Covenant behind-the-scenes image

23 June 2016 4:31 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the past couple of weeks Ridley Scott has given us a peek behind-the-scenes of Alien: Covenant with production photos featuring Katherine Waterston and Michael Fassbender, and now it’s the turn of Danny McBride, who is joined by the legendary director on what we presume is the Covenant spacecraft.

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in Alien with Alien: Covenant, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

Noomi Rapace to return for Prometheus sequel Alien: Covenant

21 June 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite previous reports suggesting otherwise, sources close to Deadline have now confirmed that Noomi Rapace will be reprising her role from 2012’s Prometheus as Elizabeth Shaw for 2017’s sequel, Alien: Covenant. According to the outlet, the actress is currently on the set of the film in Australia, where she will shoot “weeks worth of scenes.” The size of her role is unknown at the time.

Back in August 2012, when 20th Century Fox announced they’d be making a sequel due to the moderate success of Prometheus, Rapace was on board to come back. Earlier this year, however, fans were led to believe that Rapace wouldn’t make an appearance after director Ridley Scott (Alien) confirmed such news in an interview. That story was further cemented when the film’s ensemble was unveiled and she wasn’t listed among the many names.

Ridley Scott and Michael Fassbender featured in new behind-the-scenes image from Alien: Covenant

16 June 2016 8:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The official social media channels for Alien: Covenant have debuted a new image from next year’s hotly-anticipated sci-fi, which sees director Ridley Scott joined by his returning Prometheus star Michael Fassbender. Check it out here…

Fassbender certainly looks different than David did in Prometheus (his head is once again attached to a body, for a start), so could this be another android who is part of the Covenant crew? It’s looking likely from the above image.

“There are going to be great sets and aliens coming out of people. The sets are fantastic. Again, the most impressive sets I’ve seen since Prometheus, which was the original setting. It’s a fantastic mixture of high-end technology and primitive elements. The way that I can explain it is the »

New Generation of Mexican Filmmakers Reaches Out to Europe, U.S.

15 May 2016 11:08 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Over the past decade, Mexican filmmakers, producers and production companies have galvanized the country’s cinema industry with radical, sometimes brutal movies. Now, that wave — Carlos Reygadas, Fernando Eimbcke, Amat Escalante, Gerardo Naranjo, shingles Canana, Mantarraya and Cine Pantera — has become a new talent tsunami with a second generation riding along, broadening Mexico’s industry base and recent trophy trawl.

Mexico’s first wave boasts some of Mexico’s biggest movie achievements: Cannes director awards for Reygadas (2012’s “Post Tenebras Lux”) and then Escalante (2013’s “Heli”). Those helmers still promise some of Mexico’s biggest big fest and market films: the upcoming “Where Life Is Born” from Reygadas and “The Untamed” from Escalante, Canana’s crime/corruption thriller “The Black Minutes,” with Oscar-nominated Demian Bichir (“A Better Life”) and Diego Luna.

'The Hateful Eight' Interview with Demian Bichir | Exclusive

25 March 2016 9:05 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With a filmography that spans nearly 40 years, Demi&#225n Bichir has had more than his fair share of ups and downs throughout his career. In the mid-80s, he moved to New York and then Los Angeles to pursue his craft, but he was eventually drawn back to Mexico, where he became one of his home country's biggest box office stars. He won an Ariel Award, the Mexican equivalent of an Oscar, for his role in 'Til Death in 1994, and his 1999 blockbuster Sex, Shame and Tears became the highest-grossing movie in the country's history. While he was a bona fide star in Mexico, he would only gain the attention of American audiences nearly a decade later

His portrayal of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro in 2008's Che (Part 1) and Che (Part 2) helped put Demi&#225n Bichir on one Hollywood map, as well as his portrayal of Tijuana mayor/drug kingpin Esteban Reyes on Showtime's Weeds. »

Is The Hunt for Adolf Eichmann Chris Weitz’s Next Project?

‘Rogue One’ Writer Chris Weitz in Talks to Direct Movie on Nazi War Criminal

24 February 2016 11:19 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” writer Chris Weitz is in early talks to direct MGM’s drama about the Israeli team that captured Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann.

The studio began developing the project last year with the purchase of Matthew Orton’s script. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Automatik are producing, and Matt Charman is exec producing.

Eichmann was in charge of the logistics of mass deportation of Jews to Nazi extermination camps in Eastern Europe during World War II. He fled to his native Austria after the war and then moved to Argentina, where he was seen in 1953 in Buenos Aires.

Eichmann was captured in 1960 by agents of the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad. Following a widely publicized trial in Israel, he was convicted of war crimes and executed by hanging in 1962.

Eichmann never showed any remorse for his crimes.

Weitz signed on earlier this month to adapt the screenplay »

Demian Bichir joins Alien: Covenant cast

23 February 2016 1:40 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Alien: Covenant, the Ridley Scott-directed sequel to 2012’s Prometheus, has just added Oscar-nominated actor Demian Bichir to its cast, according to Deadline. Bichir is set to join a group of actors that includes Katherine Waterston, Michael Fassbender, who is reprising his role as David, and the recently announced Danny McBride

As of now, no details about Bichir’s character have been released.

In their article, Deadline also lists Noomi Rapace, star of Prometheus, as part of the sequel’s cast, despite Scott himself claiming last month that she will not appear in the film. Reports on this matter have conflicted in the past, but as the film’s release date inches closer, Fox will surely put out an official statement on whether or not the actress is involved, to clear things up.

The film will supposedly begin filming in Australia in the near future.

Ava DuVernay Takes ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ as ‘Embrace of the Serpent’ Director Sets Next Project

23 February 2016 11:01 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Almost nobody would’ve expected Ava DuVernay to become a leading fantasy filmmaker, yet the director’s post-Selma path has been littered with one such project after the other. Following offers for Black Panther and word of an Amblin-backed, Lupita Nyong’o-starring sci-fi tale comes, from Deadline, news that she’s been tapped by Disney adapt A Wrinkle in Time, that perennial classic of Ya sci-fi literature.

If you attended elementary school in an English-speaking country, you’ll have at least seen Madeleine L’Engle‘s book on a library shelf at some point or another. That ubiquity betrays, I think, the oddity of this story, in which a brother-sister pairing (as well as a friend from school) travel through space, dimensions, and across numerous planets, to find their missing scientist father. Adapted properly, A Wrinkle in Time would make for a massive-scale and visually overwhelming epic — no small order, »

Alien: Covenant Adds Demián Bichir

22 February 2016 9:39 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Just as intriguing as the Xenomorphs in some of the previous Alien films are the people that encounter them. The group in Ridley Scott’s upcoming Alien: Covenant still has plenty of open slots, but some seats on what could be a wild ride have been taken, with Demián Bichir the latest person to climb aboard the project.

Variety (via Deadline) reports that Bichir has been set to join the cast of Alien: Covenant in an unknown role. A follow-up film to the Alien prequel, Prometheus, Alien: Covenant will feature Michael Fassbender reprising his role as the android David and will also star Katherine Waterston (Steve Jobs). Danny McBride (Pineapple Express, Eastbound & Down) is also in talks for a co-starring role.

Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in 2011’s A Better Life, Bichir recently co-starred as Bob in Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight and »
