Tom Hiddleston to Star in King Kong Origins Film ‘Skull Island’

16 September 2014 1:24 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Marvel fans who can’t get enough of the demigod Loki may be drawn to the massive monster franchise Legendary is cooking up, as it’s just been announced that Tom Hiddleston will play the lead role in the upcoming King Kong origins movie, Skull Island. A new director has also been attached to the film that will explore the seemingly prehistoric island teeming with colossal creatures.

Legendary announced today that Jordan Vogt-Roberts will direct Skull Island off a screenplay by Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein. Skull Island was revealed at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con during a surprising teaser video that concluded with an amped-up King Kong. In late July we reported that Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) had been offered the director’s chair for the project, but now it is Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) who will helm the large-scale adventure.

Tom Hiddleston to star in Skull Island with Jordan Vogt-Roberts directing

16 September 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Legendary Pictures announced today that Thor: The Dark World and Only Lovers Left Alive star Tom Hiddleston is in talks to star in the new King Kong film, Skull Island, with The Kings of Summer and You’re the Worst director Jordan Vogt-Roberts at the helm.

Unfortunately we still don’t know much about the project, though it will explore the titular island that King Kong and various other mysterious and monstrous creatures call home. Previous reports suggested that Attack the Block helmer Joe Cornish was on the studio’s mind for the directing job, but they must have found something special in Vogt-Roberts.

This is not the only high-profile project on Vogt-Roberts and Hiddleston’s plates, however. Vogt-Roberts is already signed on to direct Metal Gear Solid for Sony, though that project will likely get pushed aside for now. Hiddleston, on the other hand, has a few upcoming films on his slate, »

First Look: Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt In 'By The Sea'

15 September 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It looks like there are now two Angelina Jolie Oscar campaigns we have to think about.  There's her WWII survivor story "Unbroken" coming in December, but the actress/director/screenwriter is already at work on her next movie "By The Sea," co-starring new husband Brad Pitt. And after only a week of shooting, the first images have arrived. And even more, there are some plot details as well. Here's the synopsis via EW:  Set in France during the mid-1970s, Jolie plays Vanessa, a former dancer, and Pitt is her husband Roland, an American writer. As they travel the country together, they seem to be growing apart, but when they linger in one quiet, seaside town they begin to draw close to some of its more vibrant inhabitants, such as a local bar/café-keeper (War Horse and A Prophet‘s Niels Arestrup, pictured below) and hotel owner (Richard Bohringer, The Cook, »

First By The Sea Images Reveal Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt as a Married Couple

15 September 2014 11:13 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Newlyweds Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are revealed as a not-so-happily-married couple onscreen in the very first By the Sea images from their new film.  Jolie wrote, produces, and is directing the feature, which takes place in 1970s France and revolves around a marriage that’s collapsing on itself.  Jolie plays a former dancer and Pitt plays an American writer, and the story finds the disenchanted couple growing closer together in a quiet seaside town as they meet its inhabitants and begin sharing stories.  Cinematographer Christian Berger (The White Ribbon) is shooting the film using mostly natural light, and the supporting cast includes Niels Arestrup (War Horse) and Richard Bohringer (The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover). Check out the first By the Sea images after the jump, along with an explanation from Jolie as to why she chose to set the film in the 1970s.  The pic »

First Look: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt swept away in romantic drama 'By the Sea'

15 September 2014 10:17 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

“But no man moved me till the tide / 
Went past my simple shoe /And past my apron and my belt /
And past my bodice too / And made as he would eat me up / 
As wholly as a dew…”

Whether or not this poem by Emily Dickinson, published under the title By the Sea, served as inspiration for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s new film of the same name, the spirit seems to match up with its story of a woman caught in an undertow of passion and rejuvenation while visiting a seaside village with her husband.

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Reach’

12 September 2014 4:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Judging by Michael Douglas’ presence as producer and star, “The Reach” must have been some sort of passion project for the aging Hollywood icon. Well, as Pascal observed, the heart has its reasons — which, in Douglas’ case, remain impenetrable at the end of “The Reach,” for upwards of 90 minutes, while the audience looks on in quiet disbelief. A hopelessly misguided mashup of Cornel Wilde’s 1955 cult favorite “The Naked Prey” and “The Most Dangerous Game,” with Douglas playing a mutant hybrid of Gordon Gekko and the Glenn Close character from “Fatal Attraction,” this inauspicious English-language debut for promising French helmer Jean-Baptiste Leonetti doesn’t look to reach far from its Toronto premiere (where Lionsgate paid a surprising $2 million for the U.S. rights).

If there were a festival prize for most Chekovoian use of a handgun, it would surely go to “The Reach” for the early scene in which small-town »

The 84th Academy Awards: If I had been a voter

9 September 2014 4:44 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Once again today I’m going to be taking a look back at a recent Oscar lineup and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories we all follow so intently each season. I previously mentioned that potentially I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, and while I’m going to be truing to do that, time will still tell. Again, if nothing else, this gives you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of the year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit more. Alright, here goes nothing: Best Picture – Moneyball The nominees here for this ceremony were The Artist, The Descendants, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Help, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball, The Tree of Life, and War Horse. »

Relativity Snaps Up Eel Marsh House & The Woman In Black 2 For Us Release

5 September 2014 6:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hammer Films’ gothic scarefest The Woman in Black was an undeniable hit back in 2012. The big screen adaptation of Susan Hill’s eerie novel pulled in close to $130 million at the international box office and managed to strike a chord with its native audience in the UK. Moreover, it comfortably shepherded Daniel Radcliffe away from the shackles of a certain boy wizard and allowed him to stretch his acting muscles as a competent leading man. (The latter point is debatable, but we digress.)

That said, the young British actor won’t feature in the upcoming sequel, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, which is to be distributed by Relativity Media in North America following a recent deal penned during the Toronto International Film Festival. According to Deadline, the partnership between the studios is said to be north of seven-figures.

In Radcliffe’s stead, the horror sequel will star War Horse »

"I just don't believe in the notion that you can press a button and create a franchise, but, I mean, I'm definitely planning 3 and 4…"
