Leth, Zandvliet team for skinhead drama

Leth, Zandvliet team for skinhead drama
Project comes from Land Of Mine’s producer and writer duo.

Danish director Asger Leth (Man On A Ledge) will direct the timely, politically-minded Us-set drama White Dog, from a story by Land Of Mine writer/director Martin Zandvliet.

Nordisk’s Mikael Rieks, who also produced the likely Oscar-contender Land Of Mine, will produce. Zandvliet co-wrote the script with Anders August.

The film is described as “an eye-level portrait of two skinhead brothers at a point in their lives where their paths are pointed in very different directions.”

The team expects to shoot the film in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

“The film will take place in Pittsburgh, USA, but it is just as easily a portrait of a time where populist politicians everywhere are appealing to the worst in us,” said Asger Leth, whose credits also include Ghosts Of Cite Soleil.

Meanwhile, Zandvliet is currently in pre-production in Japan on his English-language debut The Outsider starring Jared Leto.

Fantastic Four: what we know about the reboot

  • Den of Geek
We've now had our first glimpse at Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four. Here’s everything we know about 2015’s most mysterious blockbuster.

We’ve known about the Fantastic Four reboot for quite some time, but that hasn’t stopped it being a mysterious project which, until this week, we knew next to nothing about.

We knew that the cast, director and groundwork of the original 2005 film, and its 2007 sequel Rise Of The Silver Surfer, had been firmly thrown out in favour of a new visual look, some reimagining of the source material and an altogether more modern take on the Marvel comics property. Beyond that, many facets of the film remained a mystery.

Yet the reveal of the new trailer finally gave us a few more specifics. And here's what we know so far...

Genesis Rodriguez and Stan Lee Join Kevin Smiths Yoga Hosers

Kevin Smith's 'Yoga Hosers' is the latest genre offering from the writer/director and the smoking hot Genesis Rodriguez -below ('Man on a Ledge', 'The Last Stand') is the latest to join the cast. The comedy horror, which will see a number of faces from his upcoming horror 'Tusk' appear once more, will team up two 15 year old girls with an old man-hunter to help defeat a party-pooping demonic force. The two young leads will be played by both Kevin and Johnny Depp's daughters Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Melody Depp respectively. There are no details currently on the role Rodriguez will take but as this is the second helping of Smith's new 'True North Trilogy' it is possible that she'll be playing the same role she does in the upcoming 'Tusk', something the two lead youngsters will also be doing.

Rectify Renewed For Third Season

As the first original series from SundanceTV, Rectify was something of a gamble on the part of the network. Premiering on April 22 2013 with six episodes, however, the drama quickly established itself as a critical success, winning loyal fans and avid followers. Season two followed on June 19 2014, and is about to wrap after 10 episodes. Fans need not worry, though, as the show has now been renewed for a third season.

The premise of the series is simple, but with endless possibility for exploration. The story focuses on Daniel Holden who, as a teenager, was convicted and imprisoned for the rape and murder of his 16 year old girlfriend, Hanna. 19 years later, new DNA evidence proves his innocence and he is freed. His attempts to adjust, and the attempts of those around him to do the same, form a character study within a Southern Gothic tale.

Starring Aden Young (I, Frankenstein), Abigail Spencer

Snowpiercer movie review: hunger train

Hauntingly grim, full of appalling ironies and awful truths. This is most definitely not the feel-good movie of the summer. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m a big Sf geek

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

There’s a reason why Snowpiercer — which could have, theoretically, easily been a centerpiece summer film for a major Hollywood studio — is getting handled with the timid kid gloves of an arthouse release by the industry, quietly dribbling into a few cinemas here and there instead of getting a big opening-weekend push out onto three thousand screens. It’s a reason that has a lot to do with what the film has to say about human nature, hope, despotism, and a revolutionary spirit that might want to counter that despotism. What Snowpiercer is about offers too harsh

Justin Long is Slowly Becoming a Walrus in New Bloody Tusk Photo

Justin Long ('Drag Me to Hell') has been snapped by director Kevin Smith in what might be the actors most uncomfortable scenario to date. Laying with his arms stitched to his sides with a mouth full of what either appears to be a mouth full of blood or at least missing teeth. Long's character is the unsuspecting victim of an absolute nutter played by 'Red State' star Michael Parks who decides his new roommate should be converted into a human/walrus hybrid. Long stars alongside Haley Joel Osment ('The Sixth Sense') and Genesis Rodriguez ('Man on a Ledge') also star as Long's best friend and girlfriend, of course respectively. Head below the image....

Asian Film Buyers Guide

The theatrical market in the Asian-Pacific region is now the largest single component of global box office, worth $11.1 billion in 2013, the year when it overtook both North America ($10.9 billion) and Europe-Middle East-Africa (also $10.9 billion). And unlike the European and North American markets, which have stagnated, Asia has been on a steady upward trend, driven on by growth in China, India and Malaysia as well as emerging movie markets Indonesia and Vietnam.

But if the overall trend is upward, the individual market conditions faced by distributors within the region vary enormously:

In booming South Korea, the major exhibitors are under anti-monopoly investigation, yet the number of film imports and releases is one of the highest in the world. In China, these days the world’s fastest growing major market, government policy favors local films and local companies. While import quotas grab the headlines for their effect on Hollywood studio titles, censorship

Sam Worthington Arrested After Fight With Paparazzo

Sam Worthington was arrested on Sunday afternoon in New York City after getting in a fight with a paparazzo, which ended up with both men a bit bloody and in handcuffs.

Sam Worthington Claims Paparazzo Assaulted His Girlfriend

Worthington, known for his lead role in Avatar, was walking in Greenwich Village with his model girlfriend Lara Bingle when the photographer, Sheng Li, allegedly kicked Bingle’s shins to elicit a reaction from her for a photograph, sparking a physical confrontation with Worthington. Worthington was issued a desk appearance ticket and then released, while Li was charged with assault, reckless endangerment and harassment. This isn't the first time Worthington has been in trouble with the law. In 2012, he was arrested for disorderly conduct.

At Li’s arraignment on Monday, Feb. 24, Li told a different story, claiming that it was Bingle who went after him and instigated the altercation.

Tusk Stunner Genesis Rodriguez Joins Blumhouse Productions Home

The sexy Genesis Rodriguez -below ('Man on a Ledge') has signed on for Blumhouse's latest haunted house thriller 'Home'. '+1' helmer Dennis Iliadis will direct the project which saw 'That 70's Show' star Topher Grace pick up the lead role last month. 'Shutter Island' star Patricia Clarkson was previously reported to be in negotiations for a role which still appears to be the case at the moment. No word just yet on the details of Rodriguez's character but for those who can't wait to catch another big screen outing for the beauty will find solace in the fact that the 26 year old will be appearing in Kevin Smith's upcoming hybrid horror 'Tusk'. Blumhouse's Jason Blum and Leonardo DiCaprio and Appian Way partner Jennifer Killoran will co-produce 'Home', whilst Iliadis will helm from a script penned by Adam Alleca....

Genesis Rodriguez Goes Home With Topher Grace For Blumhouse Thriller

After deftly handling supporting roles in action fare like Man on a Ledge and The Last Stand, actress Genesis Rodriguez is set to make her mark as a scream queen in the upcoming Blumhouse thriller Home.

The actress will star alongside Topher Grace in the thriller, which centers on a man (Grace) who inherits a creepy old mansion from his parents and begins to believe that it is haunted. It’s not much of a spoiler to say that he’s right, and lots of horrifying supernatural events ensue. It has not been confirmed which character Rodriguez will be playing in Home, though I imagine that she’ll be taking on the role of the love interest of Grace’s protagonist.

Though the actress hasn’t showcased a particularly impressive set of dramatic chops to date, I also didn’t mind her performances in last year’s Hours or Identity Thief.
