The Good Lie (2014) – The Review

2 October 2014 1:31 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

As the temps continue to fall, the studios inch closer to serious film time (and Oscar season) by releasing another movie with the nebulous ad line “inspired by true events”. That phrase has been attached to everything from the Nicholas Sparks adapted weeper The Vow to sports flicks such as Million Dollar Arm, often basing the story on just part of an incident. But for this new release the phrase could be amended to “inspired by ongoing true events”. Like 2011′s Machine Gun Preacher, this new film concerns the ongoing conflicts in the Sudan in North Africa. Now the title of this new film is somewhat ironic. It refers to a literary work read by one of the characters, but the title could also be a comment on the film’s marketing, which we’ll discuss a bit later. First let’s explore The Good Lie.

15 July 2014 2:52 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Relativity and Walden Media announced today that they will develop, finance and produce a feature film adaptation of Alice Ozma's The Reading Promise, a bestselling memoir of how a shared passion for reading helped a single father and his youngest daughter navigate the ups and downs of their lives. Doug Atchison (Akeelah and the Bee) is set to write the screenplay.

Walden Media COO Frank Smith had this to say in a statement.

"At its core, The Reading Promise is a heartfelt, imaginative story that celebrates family and love of reading, and as such, celebrates the core tenants of a Walden Media film. Jim Brozina's dedication to his family and the promise they made are nothing short of inspirational."

The Reading Promise is a heartwarming, true story of a young woman whose single father (Jim Brozina), a beloved elementary school librarian, made a promise to read aloud together for 100 consecutive nights. »

Don’t Mess with the Missionary Man: Machine Gun Preacher Sam Childers

9 May 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

I recently attended the Gasparilla International Film Festival in Tampa, Florida, where I served on the documentary grand jury as well as a panel discussion about filmmakers and the press. In the Filmmaker Lounge post-panel, I was surprised to meet the subject of one of the docs I’d watched. Kevin EvansMachine Gun Preacher tells the unbelievable tale of Sam Childers, outlaw biker turned rescuer of African children, fighting the Lord’s Resistance Army with a Bible in his hand. (If this stranger than fiction story sounds familiar, it’s probably because you saw Gerard Butler play Childers in the 2011 Hollywood […] »

Screen Gems Picks A Padre

9 April 2014 2:39 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Move over Priest and Machine Gun Preacher, there’s a new man of God in town. Padre, a spec script by Mike Maples, has been picked up by Screen Gems in what Deadline is reporting is a six-figure deal. The screenplay is, reports the site, in the mould of No Country For Old Men and A History Of Violence. Padre is billed as a “stark drama”, although it has elements of fuzzy, lo-fi thriller about it the synopsis is anything to go by. The titular priest has a dark past as a special-forces soldier, presumably one of those with a CV full of brutal killings and IEDs, but his efforts to shrug off the agonies of his experiences is hampered when his congregation is laid waste by a group of villainous lawmen.He’s then tortured and dumped in the desert. From there it sounds like a pretty standard vengeance quest, »
