Charlize Theron, Seth Rogen Comedy ‘Flarsky’ Sells to Lionsgate

20 March 2017 3:55 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate has picked up worldwide rights to Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen’s comedy “Flarsky” with “50/50” director Jonathan Levine helming.

Lionsgate handled distribution on two previous Levine films — “50/50,” which starred Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and “Warm Bodies.”

Rogen will play an unemployed journalist, battered by his own misfortune and self-destructive ways, who endeavors to pursue Theron’s character — his childhood crush and babysitter, who now happens to be one of the most powerful and unattainable women on earth. The script is written by veteran comedy scribe Dan Sterling. Production is expected to begin in August.

The Shallows Director Jaume-Collet Serra Reportedly In Contention For Suicide Squad 2

17 March 2017 9:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Shallows director Jaume-Collet Serra is the latest candidate in the mix for Suicide Squad 2, according to a report from Meet the Movie Press (via Screen Rant). Should a deal place, the filmmaker will be working from a script penned by Adam Cozad (The Legend of Tarzan).

Jaume-Collet Serra, who is perhaps best known for his action-oriented collaborations with Liam Neeson (see: Unknown, Non-Stop, Run All Night and upcoming thriller The Commuter), cropped up in conversation amid the ongoing episode of Mtmp, where reporter Jeff Sneider named-dropped as a potential candidate for the gig. It should be noted that this merely indicates that Serra is one of many filmmakers currently populating Warner’s wishlist – you know, assuming Sneider’s sources are sound – which has also made room for Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies), Daniel Espinosa (Life) and Mel Gibson, who is coming hot off the Oscar-nominated war epic, »

Suicide Squad 2 Drafts In Legend of Tarzan Screenwriter

15 March 2017 12:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though the search for a director continues apace, The Hollywood Reporter brings word today that Adam Cozad, screenwriter on the recent Legend of Tarzan reboot, has officially entered talks to pen Suicide Squad 2 for Warner Bros.

The anti-hero sequel, which has been labeled a straight-up priority for the studio after David Ayer’s divisive original stormed to $745 million worldwide, sparked into life exactly one month ago, when Hacksaw Ridge helmer Mel Gibson rose to the tip-top of Warner’s shortlist. Gibson remains the number-one choice to helm the follow-up, according to sources, though it should be noted that those same reports indicated that Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies), and Life director Daniel Espinosa were also in contention for the coveted gig.

Train To Busan: A Zombie Spotter’s Guide

28 February 2017 11:40 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The annals of horror history are infested with the living dead. And most movie fans would conjure up the same mental picture of a zombie: slow, groaning, hungry for human brains.

But like anything else – living or, erm, living dead – the zombie comes in many forms. It’s evolved and changed, taking on new traits and characteristics with each new generation of seminal zombie movies.

With Train to Busan released on DVD, Blu-ray, and VOD this week, we’ve put together an essential guide for anyone who enjoys a bit of “zombie spotting”, detailing the most common – and rarest – types of undead brain-munchers out there.

“The Voodoo Classic”

As Seen In: White Zombie (1932)

Defining Characteristics: With their cloaks, big moustaches, and pirate-style baggy pants, they look more like extras from a Gilbert & Sullivan production than your standard reanimated corpse.

Seth Rogen Will Pursue Charlize Theron in ‘Flarsky’; ‘Captain Fantastic’ Director Finds ‘Tomorrow and Tomorrow’

24 February 2017 10:17 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Jonathan Levine (50/50, Warm Bodies) is set to direct a new dark comedy, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, he has snagged two heavy-hitters for the lead roles. Flarsky, a tale about an unemployed journalist (played by Seth Rogen, who seems to be continually trying to expand his dramatic chops outside his comedic efforts) that decides to pursue his childhood crush (Charlize Theron), who now happens to be one of the most powerful women in the world. The script is penned by Dan Sterling (The Interview), and was sitting on the Black List in 2011 until it was scooped by Point Grey and Denver & Delilah. Flarsky is set for an August production start, which means we’ll likely see it in 2018.

Mel Gibson Is Reportedly First Choice For Suicide Squad Sequel As Director Likens Talks To A “First Date”

16 February 2017 7:49 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Undeterred by scathing reviews and a less-than-stellar box office haul, Warner Bros. has officially jump-started pre-production on Suicide Squad 2, effectively sending the Internet into a tailspin in the process.

Amid last night’s hullabaloo, Hacksaw Ridge director Mel Gibson emerged as an early frontrunner to take the reins, with additional reports revealing that the likes of Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies), and Daniel Espinosa (Life) have also cropped up on the studio’s preliminary shortlist. It’s early, early days, but Variety reporter Justin Kroll has provided some context to the ongoing situation, noting that, as of now, Gibson is Warner’s first choice to helm Suicide Squad 2, and that the sequel is essentially his, should he sign along the dotted line.

Barring anything else crazy happening by the end of Friday, this week’s winner in the category of “Wtf News” belongs to yesterday’s reports that Mel Gibson is in early talks to direct “Suicide Squad 2.” It’s not a done deal and there are other contenders in the mix — Daniel Espinosa (“Safe House,” the upcoming sci-fi “Life“), Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland,” “Gangster Squad“), and Jonathan Levine (“Warm Bodies,” “50/50“) — but that Gibson is even at the table is surprising.

Warner Bros. talking to Gibson about replacing David Ayer, according to reports.

Other directors reportedly in the frame to replace David Ayer for the DC sequel include Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) and Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies).

The first Suicide Squad received mostly negative reviews, but still made $745m at the global box office and has been fast-tracked for a sequel.

Mel Gibson, beset by personal problems in the last decade, has made a comeback with his new film Hacksaw Ridge, which has been nominated for six Oscars and made $164m worldwide.

He has several upcoming projects including a starring role in police thriller Dragged Across Concrete alongside Vince Vaughn, with Bloom launching pre-sales on the film at this year’s Efm.

Update: Suicide Squad 2 - Mel Gibson In The Running To Direct DC Supervillain Sequel?

15 February 2017 7:58 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Update:

While attending a screening of Hacksaw Ridge, Gibson confirmed that the talks with Warner Bros regarding Suicide Squad 2 were indeed happening, but as of this writing, they are no where near any sort of deal.

"It's kind of a first date," he told the moderator. You can take a look at the video below, though be warned that the audio is very low.

Also of note from Variety reporter Justin Kroll:

Couple updates on the Suicide Squad director search since I posted after a few calls. First if Mel wants it, it's his.

After much uncertainty, it seems as if we’ll definitely be getting a Suicide Squad 2. Those box office numbers proved to be strong enough to justify a sequel and now, Warner Bros. is on the hunt for a director. Earlier today, we heard that Mel Gibson was in talks, along with Daniel Espinosa and tonight, Variety is reporting that Zombieland‘s Ruben Fleischer and Warm BodiesJonathan Levine are also being eyed by the studio to take the helm.

From what we understand, there’s no clear frontrunner at the moment, given that it’s so early on in the search, and it’s expected that additional names will be added to the shortlist before a decision is made. When WB will settle on someone is unknown, but the project is definitely a priority »

Mel Gibson, Jonathan Levine and Ruben Fleischer Among Directors Being Considered for ‘Suicide Squad 2’

15 February 2017 3:32 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. has begun the search for the director who will take over the reins for the sequel to box office hit “Suicide Squad.” Mel Gibson is perhaps the most surprising of the handful of possibilities.

Sources tell Variety that in addition to Gibson, Warners has met with — or is planning to meet with — Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland”), Daniel Espinosa (“Safe House”), and Jonathan Levine (“Warm Bodies”).

Warner Bros. had no comment.

Mel Gibson In Early Talks To Direct Suicide Squad 2 For Warner Bros.

15 February 2017 1:59 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Suicide Squad may not have fared particularly well with critics, but it was a box office success, so you probably won't be too surprised to learn that a sequel is in the early stages in development. However, in a very unexpected twist, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Mel Gibson is in early talks to take the helm of the movie!  He's a long way off signing up to direct, and the trade adds that he's currently familiarising himself with the comic books to see if it's a property he would be interested in working on. Warner Bros. is hedging their bets, though, as Daniel Espinosa (Safe) is also being considered along with a number of others that Variety lists as being Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) and Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies).  With Suicide Squad's David Ayer busy working on Gotham City Sirens, it makes sense that he's not returning, and Gibson »

Amy Schumer & Goldie Hawn do some serious bonding in the new trailer for Snatched

7 February 2017 9:16 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

It’s always nice to see a Mother and Daughter combo doing some serious bonding but Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn take it to the next level in the new trailer for Snatched. In this new film the pair give their kidnappers a run for their money while on an exotic holiday.

Related: Snatched Trailers

Snatched marks Hawn’s first role since 2002’s The Banger Sisters and this new film features an odd couple who have only their comedic roles in common. So whose bright idea was it to team up the once well known sex symbol actress Goldie Hawn and the outspoken, controversial comedian Amy Schumer as a mother and daughter bad-ass duo? That would be Bridesmaids and Ghostbusters director Paul Feig – who acts as producer on Snatched – as well as Schumer herself who co-wrote the outrageous comedy alongside her sister Kim Caramele and Ghostbusters and Spy writer, »

Sundance 2017 Interview: Teresa Palmer & Max Riemelt Talk Berlin Syndrome

23 January 2017 9:27 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Over the last few years, I’ve come to admire actress Teresa Palmer’s body of work, as she’s consistently taken on intriguing projects like Knight of Cups (with Terrence Malick), Warm Bodies, and last year’s Lights Out (as I entered the interview, she mentioned that work on a script for the sequel is currently underway). Her latest project, Cate Shortland’s Berlin Syndrome, recently premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and follows her character, Clare, after she finds herself being subtly abducted following a night of passion with Andi (Max Riemelt), a teacher who wants to keep her tucked away from the world forever after their romp.

In Park City, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with both Palmer and Riemelt about their experiences working on Berlin Syndrome, their collaborative relationship together and with director Shortland, and the complicated connection their characters share in the film. »

Sundance 2017 Review: Berlin Syndrome Effectively Digs into the Horrors of Relationships

23 January 2017 6:01 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A brutal, yet subtle abduction thriller, Cate Shortland’s Berlin Syndrome is a stunning effort from the Australian filmmaker that deftly explores the idea of Stockholm syndrome in a very unexpected, thoughtful, and intimate way.

Co-starring Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies, Lights Out) and Max Riemelt (Sense8), Berlin Syndrome follows Clare (Palmer), an Australian photographer who has just arrived in Germany after coming to a crossroads in her life and realizing that she wants to experience the world at large through the lens of her camera. While Clare is quite shy and sometimes awkward around others, she catches the eye of Andi (Riemelt), a local teacher who takes an immediate liking to her, and they end up sharing a night of passion. But the next morning, Clare finds herself unable to leave Andi’s apartment (which of course happens to be located in a remote part of Berlin that most folks »
