Sony Nabs Rights to ‘Assassin’s Creed’ Movie

21 October 2011 9:33 AM, PDT | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

After a bidding battle, Sony Pictures has landed the movie rights to the Ubisoft video game “Assassin’s Creed.”

Variety reported Thursday final negotiations were underway. Other studios showed interest, including Universal.

“Assassin’s Creed” is a third-person adventure game series (four titles since 2007) that has sold more than 26 million copies. In case the title didn’t tip you off, the game centers on a lineage of assassins, but the sci-fi story flips backward in time to explores their secret conflict with the Templars, who have spread their influence across history.

The obvious comparison is Ubisoft’s equally high-flying, slow-motion “Prince of Persia,” which was adapted into a feature by Disney and super producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Despite Jake Gyllenhaal’s glistening abs, the $200 million movie disappointed at the box office, managing to recoup overseas for a $335 million total but dashing any hope of a franchise at the Mouse House.

Cesar Awards 2011 Winners

26 February 2011 5:35 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Bonjour Paris! February is quite interesting month when it comes to awards, and The Cesar Award is no exception.

So, let’s move to France for the national film award of France, first given out in 1975, with nominations that are selected by the members of the Académie des Arts et Techniques du Cinéma.

As we already guessed, Xavier BeauvoisDes hommes et des dieux, or if you prefer Of Gods and Men – movie that we previously talked about – took the top prize at France’s Cesar Awards.

And you all thought that Roman Polanski‘s The Ghost Writer will win? Ok, you were close, because the movie ended up taking home the most awards, including best adapted screenplay, best editing, best original score, and best director for Polanski himself, who was in attendance.

Looks that France loves Facebook, too, so David Fincher has a reason to be satisfied. He will »

36th Cesar Awards: Of Gods and Men Wins Best Film, Polanski Win Best Director

25 February 2011 8:00 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

48 hours before the Oscars, it was the French who feted the best in French cinema in 2010 with the 36th edition of the Cesar Awards. A trio of films claimed the most awards: Of Gods and Men (the Cannes winning film which was on the Oscar shortlist of nine but didn't make it into the final round) took the top award of Best Film and three in total tying up with Gainsbourg (which was picked up this week by Music Box Films) which won for Best Actor. The big winner of the night with four awards out of eight total noms was roman Polanski's The Ghost Writer which isn't in the French language but was a French production that won the filmmaker the Best Director award. Quentin "Vive le cinéma" Tarantino received an honorary award for his body of work -- not bad since he has another 40 years at least to double up on his output. »
