John le Carré's spy story Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy gets dusted off for a classy-looking remake. How's this for a cast: Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Michael Fassbender, Stephen Graham and Benedict Cumberbatch. If you like your thrillers a little bit more bombastic, then Taylor Lautner's Abduction and Jesse Eisenberg's 30 Minutes Or Less should be more up your street.

In 2011, Academy Award winning actor Sigourney Weaver, most known for her role as Ellen Ripley in Alien (and the subsequent sequels Aliens and Alien 3), will be having her strongest year in film since 2008.

The Beaver

Opens: March 23rd 2011

Cast: Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, Anton Yelchin, Jennifer Lawrence

Director: Jodie Foster

Summary: A depressed toy company CEO with a failed marriage starts to wear a beaver puppet on his hand as a form of therapy, much to the initial bemusement of his family. He soon begins talking only through the character.

The thriller remake "Edge of Darkness" and this were his first on screen roles in ten years, 'Beaver' is also his "Maverick" co-star Foster's return to the director's chair fifteen years after her last feature. The script topped the 2008 Black List and scored rave reviews for its blend of sophisticated humor and sad pathos, »

The Black List of 2010 - Part 1

15 December 2010 12:20 AM, PST | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

With the publication of the 2010 Black List another compilation of the year's best unproduced screenplays has arrived. This is the fifth year that The Black List has been in existence, and its purpose is to shine a spotlight on what 290 film executives think are some of the best creative executions of ideas worthy for the big screen.

To be nominated and included on The Black List a screenplay can't have been released in 2010. As well, the minimum number of votes that a screenplay needed to have to warrant inclusion on the list is five. Several of the projects listed on Tbl are in development and will be released in the next twelve months. Others might have heat but take years to reach theaters, and there are also many that will never be greenlighted.

In the words of the creators of The Black List, don't take this assembly of screenplays to »

The Black List is an unofficial list of the most-liked scripts that studio execs read or were relevant in a year. If a script makes the Black List and is not in development already, often that will be the catalyst for a studio to snatch it up.

Snow White and the Huntsman by Evan Daughtry. Universal and Joe Roth's take on Snow White but reimagining the relationship between the teen and the wicked queen's right hand man to become more of a mentorship.

The Black List - 2010's Best Unproduced Screenplays

13 December 2010 10:01 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Back in 2004, a list was compiled of the best unproduced screenplays in Hollywood of that year. This came to be known as The Black List.  It was all started by a young executive at Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company Appian Way, who polled 90+ peers to send him their 10 favorite, new, unproduced screenplays to read over the holidays. It has since become a tradition at the end of every year, in December, to release this list, which is voted on by a group of individuals in the entertainment industry from producer assistants, talent agency individuals, and many people involved with film development all the way up to VP's.

The 2010 Black List is here, and thanks to Deadline we have the list of best unproduced screenplays. Most of the scripts we've heard of, many of them are in production, some have already wrapped filming, they just wont be released until next year. »

Incarceron: Taylor Lautner Heading To Prison After Breaking Dawn

13 December 2010 10:00 AM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Way back in March, we told you that Fox 2000 had won a bidding war over the rights to British Sci-Fi/Fantasy novel Incarceron, written by Catherine Fisher. The novel was first released in the UK in 2007 but just hit the Us a few weeks ago, and earned a spot on the New York Times’ best seller list.

Now, Deadline reports that Taylor Lautner (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Abduction) has signed on to play Finn in the sci-fi adventure film. Finn is a young lifelong resident of Incarceron, which is a fully self-contained prison society. In the book, Finn meets the daughter of the Incarceron warden, who is housed in her own prison which resembles the 17th Century. When they find a mysterious key, and learn about the only man to ever escape the prison, they hatch their own plan to escape.

No director is yet attached to the project. »

Every year, studio executive Franklin Leonard compiles the “Black List,” a collection of the best unproduced screenplays as voted on by 300 execs and high-level assistants.  The 2010 list is the sixth of its kind to bring additional awareness to Hollywood’s hottest scripts.

Topping the list this year is Wes JonesCollege Republicans, a Social Network-esque story (read my script review here) about the underhanded election of Karl Rove to a National College Republican seat, managed by strategy wunderkind Lee Atwater.  Shia Labeouf is attached to play Atwater and Paul Dano as Rove.  Previous Black List leaders include 2008’s The Beaver, which became a long-delayed film directed by Jodie Foster and starring Mel Gibson, and 2009’s The Muppet Man, which remains on the shelf.

2010 The Black List: The Year’s Best Unproduced Screenplays

13 December 2010 8:19 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The Black List has been released. The annual list is compiled with a poll of 300 (up from last year's 250) development executives and high-level assistants, and contains a ranking of the hot screenplays making the rounds in Hollywoodland, which were written in, or are somehow uniquely associated with, 2010 and will not be released in theaters during this calendar year. Basically, the black list contains the hottest projects in Hollywood that you haven't heard of yet. Note: The headline is a slightly inaccurate, because a lot of these screenplays have already been acquired (six of the top ten listed), a bunch are in production now, and some have even finished production. One of this year's top ten screenplays, J.C. Chandor's Margin Call, about the last 24 hours at now-defunct investment bank Lehman Brothers is already in the can and set to premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival with Chandor at the helm »

The 2010 Black List Screenplays Unveiled

13 December 2010 7:56 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Frank Leonard is the most popular man in Hollywood today. This fine December day marks the release of the 6th annual Black List, a ranked collection of the top un-produced screenplays in the town, compiled by Leonard. Last year the top script was The Muppet Man from Christopher Weekes about “the life and times of the late Jim Henson.” Coming in second was Aaron Sorkin‘s The Social Network script, which is a current frontrunner to sweep the Oscars. The year before was The Beaver, now starring Mel Gibson and set for a release in 2011.

The top one this year, College Republicans, has Shia Labeouf and Paul Dano attached. As for the rest of the list, I’ll be seeing Margin Call (pictured above) at Sundance 2011 and Safe House goes into production next year. We also reported on Oldboy director Park Chan-wook‘s English language debut with Carey Mulligan attached, »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part One

13 December 2010 7:39 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Back for its third year (see the 2010 edition) and bigger than ever, today kicks off the first in a fifteen-part look at the various cinematic releases hitting the U.S. in 2011. Each 'part' contains brief descriptions and editorial opinion/analysis of varying length covering twenty films. Expect the remaining ones to go up between now and the first major releases in mid-January.

Like all cinematic lists set within a timeframe, there's some overlap. Some films here have already opened worldwide but have yet to hit the U.S., some upcoming films you'd expect to be here aren't because they're either still in development or have already announced 2012 release dates, some were on last year's list but got delayed so have been included again (but with all new analysis).

I confined my list to films that have either set 2011 release dates or had begun/completed production, and only films that have »
