Tff 2015 Daily Recap: April 17th

17 April 2015 10:09 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“Live from New York, it’s the Tribeca Film Festival.”

I’m sure that is how some people’s coverage of this year’s Tff started off. It makes sense considering the opening night film was a documentary about Saturday Night Live! Plus, some writers can’t help but resort to puns and cheap gimmicks to appear witty. Hell, I used it and haven’t even seen the film yet. But my TriBeCa experience didn’t start off with belly laughs. Instead it began with a double feature of films about shitty parents.

The Adderall Diaries stars James Franco as an author struggling with writer’s block, which could be the inspiration for my deconstruction of an opening to this recap. The film is based on the memoir of the same title by Stephen Elliott. Franco’s version of Elliott deals with drug addiction (mostly Adderall), a Bdsm fetish that could ruin a burgeoning relationship, »

Roger Deakins: The Ten Best Cinematographers working today

14 April 2015 8:18 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

It’s time for a new weekly series folks! Yes, starting today I want to try a new series on for size. Much like how I looked at the best winners in almost every Academy Award field, I want to now turn my attention towards individuals (specifically those active in the field), starting with cinematographers. Basically, this first one will look at the best Directors of Photography currently working in the business. There’s tons of amazing Dp’s in the industry so this is clearly going to be a divisive list. Still, that’s part of the fun of it as well! Hopefully you all enjoy and this becomes a weekly or at least monthly series… Before I get to the list, I’m going to quickly explain what will be happening below. In short, I’ll be listing ten Dp’s/cinematographers that I think are the best in the business right now. »

Why A White Tiger Lily Works, According To Rooney Mara

14 April 2015 11:02 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

For the record, Rooney Mara didn.t initially believe she could play Tiger Lily in a Peter Pan movie, either. Shortly after it was announced that the star of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo would play Tiger Lily for director Joe Wright in a Peter Pan prequel, internet outrage (whether real or imagined) erupted on the usual chats and forums. There was even a petition to get Mara replaced. The actress understood. until she met with Wright and learned about his vision. "I feel like there really hasn.t been a proper interpretation of the character," Mara told us when we visited the set of Pan last year. We talked at length about her trepidation to play a character that she "always thought of as a Native American." But long conversations with her director . who she was anxious to collaborate with . and readings of Jason Fuchs. screenplay showed Mara »

Child 44: let's put an end to British actors adopting horrible fake foreign accents

13 April 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Soviet thriller Child 44 continues the trend of actors putting on funny voices to play foreigners. Why can’t they keep their mouths shut?

It remains to be seen whether Tom Rob Smith’s trilogy of thrillers set in postwar Soviet Russia ever becomes a full trilogy of movies. My suspicion says no. Like many modern movie trilogies, Smith’s series of novels falls off depressingly in its second and third instalments, though each is adorned with striking sequences and moments of power and horror. I suspect that, as with the David Fincher version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, we shall just see the opener, Child 44.

'Dragon Tattoo' Sequels Moving Forward Without Fincher?

9 April 2015 2:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Despite gaining plenty of critical acclaim and taking in a healthy $233 million worldwide in 2011, there hasn't been any movement lately on a sequel to David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The project was based on the first of author Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy books, which were followed by The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. There has been plenty of talk over the past few years about whether or not The Girl Who Played with Fire would ever move forward, but now we have a new report from The Hollywood Reporter indicating the sequel may very well happen, although without director David Fincher.

The new interest in getting a sequel off the ground comes from the recent announcement that Knopf is publishing a new Millennium series novel entitled Spider's Web, written by David Lagercrantz. While this new entry was »

New Projects: ‘Dragon Tattoo’, ‘Pinocchio,’ and ‘Lost City of Z’

9 April 2015 12:12 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With Hollywood looking for franchises wherever it can find them, it seems mighty odd that The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, a highly successful novel with a film adaptation that had Rooney Mara, David Fincher, and James Friggin’ Bond attached, is not already swimming in sequels. The American version of Stieg Larsson’s novel wasn’t exactly a blockbuster, but it made $233 million worldwide on a $90 million budget. It seems like a no-brainer.

Now there’s talk from THR that a sequel could arrive soon enough, but Sony is debating the possibility of turning Larsson’s last two books, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, into a single film. They may even lump in a new novel starring hacker Lisbeth Salander by David Lagercrantz called The Girl in the Spider’s Web. Larsson passed away in 2004, before the books were even »

Sony looking to complete Dragon Tattoo trilogy, may combine two books into one sequel

9 April 2015 5:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony has not yet given up hope of a sequel to David Fincher’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and is considering rounding out the trilogy by combining Stieg Larsson’s remaining two Millennium books, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest, into a single sequel, which would then be followed by an adaptation of the upcoming fourth book, The Girl In The Spider’s Web, penned by David Lagercrantz.

The U.S. version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo starred Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander and Daniel Craig as Mikael Blomkvist, and was eyed as the first of a trilogy of film’s based on Larsson’s books, with Fincher aiming to shoot the two sequels back to back. However, progress seemed to stall, with Rooney Mara stating on several occasions that it looked »

Sony May Combine Two Dragon Tattoo Books Into One Film

8 April 2015 5:30 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It has been four years since David Fincher delivered what was supposed to be the first of at least three films based on Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy of books, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. But though there has been talk of developing a sequel, nothing has reached screens. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony is looking into ways to get back on track, including combining the other two books of Larsson’s initial run – The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest – into one movie. Part of the reason for the new impetus – and right now, it’s all still at the meetings and theory stage – is the publication of a fourth book featuring hacker Lisbeth Salander, The Girl In The Spider’s Web, which was written David Lagercrantz following Larsson's death in 2004 and looks set to kick Salander back into more public awareness. »

"Dragon Tattoo" 2 & 3 To Become One Film?

8 April 2015 2:29 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With a fourth instalment in the late Stieg Larsson's best-selling Millennium novel series on the way, attention has turned back towards its iconic hacker character Lisbeth Salander and her on screen future.

Though David Fincher's adaptation of the first novel "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" under performed, Sony Pictures has been pursuing the sequel slowly - keen on a follow-up so long as it can be done for a fraction of the $90 million budget Fincher did the first film on. Sony has already paid quite a bit for Steve Zaillian's script adaptation of the second book "The Girl Who Played with Fire".

Today though comes a report from THR that suggests there's talk of turning that second book and the third book "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest" into one feature. Should that be a success then the new novel, "The Girl in the Spider's Web" penned by David Lagercrantz, »

Does a New 'Dragon Tattoo' Book Breathe Life into the Film Franchisec

8 April 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

A story published early this morning by The Hollywood Reporter asks the question, "Will New Dragon Tattoo Book Sequel Become a Moviec", and while I continually hope and pray the franchise isn't totally dead, no matter all the signs pointing to the contrary, I can't help but assume I will never see a sequel to David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, or at least not one made the way I would like it to be -- Fincher back as director, Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig in the lead roles, and a budget and runtime that allow misfit hacker and ward-of-the-state Lisbeth Salander's stories to breathe. Back in February, Mara told E! Online the sequels are likely dead, telling the outlet, "I don't think it's going to happen. I'm sad never to do it again, but it just doesn't seem like it's in the cards." However, recently a »

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Trilogy To Continue Without David Fincher

8 April 2015 1:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo remake caused a stir when initially announced. Sony, who threw a sizeable budget at the movie, were hoping for a significant return on their investment. Bearing in mind the popularity of the Millennium series of novels on which it’s based, that assumption wasn’t unrealistic. But the end product still flopped at the box office, anyway.

In the four years since, much talk has been made out of the sequel, The Girl Who Played With Fire, and the possible threequel, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest. Even though the studio hired Steven Zaillian to write a screenplay for Fire in the recent past. it’s seemed as if the entire U.S. franchise was dead in the water.

That may have changed, however, in light of a new report from THR, who believe that the studio are still »

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Trilogy Might Have A New Plan

Despite being based on a massively popular series of novels, David Fincher.s 2011 adaptation of Stieg Larsson.s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo underperformed. It still made $232 million worldwide, but expectations were through the roof. Since then, there.s been a great deal of talk about whether or not we.ll see the rest of the novels on screen, but now it looks like Sony has a plan in place. Hacker heroine Lisbeth Salander will be back on the page later this year, with author David Lagercrantz picking up the mantel of the Millennium series in the wake of Larsson.s death with The Girl in the Spider.s Web. According to The Hollywood Reporter, this new chapter figures into Sony.s strategy for the franchise.

Dragon Tattoo Franchise May Conclude Without David Fincher

8 April 2015 12:16 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

It’s been clear for some time now that even if the Dragon Tattoo sequels move forward, it will be without David Fincher as the director. The filmmaker was given a “blockbuster” budget for his R-rated The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo adaptation, and while the film earned respectable box office, it wasn’t the smash hit that Sony Pictures was expecting given the success of the books. Moreover, Fincher and the studio butted heads quite a bit during production and over the marketing, and Sony wanted to significantly reduce the budget for the follow-up, so that relationship didn’t exactly end on a high note. Four years after the release of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Sony has yet to move forward on the follow-ups in any capacity, but that may be about to change. THR reports that a new plan is being proposed in which The Girl »

Sony Have Alternative Plans For The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Sequels Without David Fincher

8 April 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Shizuo Kambayashi/AP

Like anything else, it’s about money. According to a feature in the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter, and excerpted on their website, Sony have plans for The Millennium Trilogy – soon to be tetralogy – that don’t involve David Fincher.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo made over $230 million on a $90 million budget. Assuming marketing costs of another $90 million, that’s still a profit, but prices on sequels tend to go up. One belt-tightening scheme that the studio has considered is to combine both the second and third books into a single film and then to make it without David Fincher.

And then, after the follow-up book comes along later this year, Sony would use that as the basis of a third film, rounding out the trilogy on a more recent, more hyped adaptation.

According to THR, Amy Pascal has an issue with this plan. She »

When she ran Sony, Amy Pascal negotiated for the studio's right to produce adaptations of the Millennium books, and sources say Sony also has rights to Spider's Web.

Rooney Mara Joins Survival Tale 'Lion' for The Weinstein Co.

7 April 2015 12:13 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

After receiving an Oscar nomination for her role in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and having what could be considered a banner year in 2013 -- which included starring roles in both Ain't Them Bodies Saints and Side Effects and a supporting role in Her -- Rooney Mara has quickly become one of the most highly sought-after actresses working right now, and for good reason. Today The Hollywood Reporter notes The Weinstein Co. has successfully reeled in Mara for a role in the Indian survival tale Lion, which the studio acquired for distribution at last year's Cannes Film Festival. Mara joins a cast that includes Nicole Kidman, Dev Patel, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Tannishtha Chatterjee, David Wenham, and Divian Ladwa. The film, which is being produced by See-Saw Films and directed by Garth Davis ("Top of the Lake") from a screenplay by Luke Davies, tells the true story of five-year-old Saroo Brierley, »
