“There’ve been so many incarnations of the film, and a lot of fairytales have been turned into live-action films lately. I thought, ‘Is the world ready for another one’? Then I read the ‘Pan’ script and it was so fun and different,” Hedlund, 31, told Variety at the film’s U.S. premiere at New York’s Ziegfeld Theatre on Sunday afternoon. “It also affected me emotionally. I laughed, I cried and I knew why the movie was being made. Because of [director] Joe Wright’s unique vision, the movie is very ambitious, has lot of action, and [is] wonderfully colorful. I hope people will like the movie as much as I do.”
Hedlund may not have to worry. He and his costars Hugh Jackman, »

It.s now been 4 years since David Fincher.s re-imagining of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. The film was met with generally favorable reviews, but its $232.6 million return from a $90 million budget meant that the intended sequels soon took a step backwards. However, Rooney Mara is still very much interested in playing the character of Lisbeth Salander again, though she admits that she.s had to quell her expectations that the films will actually happen. I spoke to Rooney Mara today about her role as Tiger Lily in Pan. I was intrigued to find out about the future of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, especially since there had been speculation earlier this summer that the second and third books could be merged together to make a single film. Mara admitted that she hadn.t actually heard this particular rumor regarding the future of the films, though she insisted »
We’ve just got back from this afternoon’s press conference for the upcoming Pan, starring Hugh Jackman, Levi Miller and Rooney Mara – a film that we positively reviewed at the weekend. During the press conference, an audience member called at Mara, complimenting her on her performance in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, in which she played the character of Lisbeth Salander.
It was apparent from the interaction that Mara was very disappointed with not being able to reprise the role of Salander in the two sequels, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest and The Girl Who Played With Fire. We captured the press conference on video, and have singled out the actress’s comments. It seems that she is very »

From the outset, David Fincher has honed a very distinctive visual style. Gritty and visceral, yet clean and precise, his back catalogue is very impressive. From Fight Club and Seven to The Social Network and Gone Girl, he has managed to make films that are both high quality and that people love. Yet they often also cost a lot of money and, due to the often uncompromising nature of his films, studios can be reluctant to give him exactly what he wants. The inevitable result is that differences become irreconcilable and projects collapse.
Below we look at some of the projects that have fallen by the wayside.

Just like Colm Tóibín’s 2009 novel, which revolves around Eilis Lacey having to cope with the changes caused by her immigration from Ireland to America during the 1950s, the cinematic adaptation of Brooklyn encountered some alterations over the course of its development. Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) was to play the lead female protagonist but delays in the production required a new actress to be cast (Saoirse Ronan) and a non-Irish filmmaker was sought for the project that ended up being directed by John Crowley, a native of Cork, Ireland. While attending the Toronto International Film Festival, Crowley shared […] »

Todd Haynes is a director of quality over quantity, and the case looks no different with his latest film. Haynes startled audiences with his 1995 cult classic Safe, starring Julianne Moore, and since then has mostly focused on period pieces, with such film and television work including Far From Heaven, I’m Not There, "Mildred Pierce", and now, the 1950s set Carol. The film stars Cate Blanchett (who may win her second Oscar in a row after 2013's Blue Jasmine) and Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Her) as lesbian lovers whose circumstances make their romance challenging and potentially heart-breaking. The trailer promises lots of drama and tears, and at least two incredible performances from its stars, in fact Rooney Mara already tied for Best Actress at this year's Cannes film festival.

Rooney Mara seems to have come out of nowhere. Her first major roles came in 2009, only six short years ago. Since then, the 30-year-old actress has blossomed into one of the most fluid, expressive, and powerful performers working today. She’s gone toe to toe with motor-mouth Jesse Eisenberg in David Fincher’s “The Social Network,” she’s been the tough as nails outlaw/wife in “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints,” and taken on the role of the decade as Lisbeth Salander in “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” for which she was nominated for an Oscar. And by the looks of it, Mara seems to just be getting started: this year looks to be another huge one for the actress thanks to Todd Haynes' “Carol,” in which she delivers her most reserved and vulnerable performance yet as Therese, the young lover of Cate Blanchett’s titular character.

It certainly seems like director Nikhil Advani and Kangana Ranaut have developed a good working rapport with Katti Batti. In fact, we hear that Nikhil has roped in Kangna to essay the lead role in his next film as well. Nikhil's next which is supposedly a thriller, will see Kangna playing a no nonsense police officer. Commenting on the same Nikhil says, "Yes Kangna will be featuring in my next, but it is still too early to talk about it. As of now, I can say that Kangna will be undergoing workshops on mannerisms and her body language for the film." Said to be based on the 2011 film The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Nikhil's yet untitled venture will go on floors next year. »

Throughout the course of movie history, numerous films have been remade in other languages. Hollywood has been no exception to this rule, with perhaps 1960’s The Magnificent Seven standing as the most notable example of a remake, bringing Akira Kurosawa’s classic The Seven Samurai to a new audience, with David Fincher’s 2011 film The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo proving that the trend is still alive and well.
Remakes, however, come in all forms, from devoted redoings to loose interpretations by filmmakers who put their own unique stamp on the material. The latter category includes the 2002 film Insomnia, which was directed by Christopher Nolan. The latter’s third film, and his last before taking on the Dark Knight trilogy, was an adaptation of Erik Skjoldbjærg’s 1997 film of the same name, with Alaska stepping in for Norway, and Al Pacino stepping in for Stellan Skarsgård. Now a video has »

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.
Without further ado, here's what's coming up...
One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »

Warner Bros. has released 4 new posters for their upcoming adventure film, Pan, spotlighting the main characters from the movie. There’s Hugh Jackman (X-Men: Days Of Future Past) as the villainous pirate Blackbeard, Rooney Mara (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) as Tiger Lilly, Levi Miller as “the boy who wouldn’t grow up” himself, and Garret Hedlund (Tron Legacy) as James Hook – which is an appropriate name for a guy who will eventually lose a hand and have it replaced with… a hook.
Director Joe Wright (Hanna, Pride And Prejudice, Atonement) has promised fans a very different Peter Pan story, and from what we know thanks to the plot summary below, it definitely seems to be a fresh take on the early days of these characters.
Peter (Levi Miller) is a mischievous 12-year-old boy with an irrepressible rebellious streak, but in the bleak London orphanage »

Mads Mikkelsen may not have a home on the small screen anymore since NBC’s cancellation of “Hannibal” earlier this summer, but the one-time Bond villain remains an in-demand actor in Danish cinema. This fall, Mikkelsen returns to the big screen at Toronto International Film Festival in the Danish black comedy “Men & Chicken,” and an official English subtitled trailer has finally been released. Read More: Podcast: Talking The 2015 Toronto International Film Festival Lineup Co-starring David Dencik (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” and both versions of “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”), the Anders Thomas Jensen-helmed film centers on a pair of odd brothers played by Mikkelsen and Dencik that find out they’re adopted and go on a journey to meet their biological father who is said to reside on a remote island. The trailer, via Slashfilm, showcases the off-kilter and dark comedic sensibility of the film, as well as »

Not even 24 hours after we heard no miracle was reached for David Fincher’s thriller series “Utopia” at HBO and we tried to dig around a little more, Deadline has the scoop: “Utopia” is dead. Written by Fincher’s “Gone Girl” collaborator Gillian Flynn, “Utopia” ran into trouble a few weeks ago when Fincher and HBO clashed over the budget on the show. Fincher wanted north of $100 million for the first season, and for comparison, Netflix’s budget for the first three seasons of “House Of Cards” was also $100 million. But Fincher doesn’t do anything on the cheap and won’t get out of bed without a petty pay day (see “Steve Jobs," which Sony balked at at the time because of his $10 million asking price). Things were already looking grim and the writing was on the wall for “Utopia” last week as the cast were released from their contracts, »
