Marc Streintenfeld’s Collaborators Cite Film Composer’s Ability to Burrow Into Characters

20 May 2015 12:47 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“He’s a filmmaker who has not made a film,” says director Saar Klein of composer Marc Streitenfeld. “He discusses things on a story level. He has an overall macro understanding of the film. And incredible taste.”

The two met while Klein was editing “The Thin Red Line” and Streitenfeld was assisting composer Hans Zimmer. By the time Klein was ready to make his own, “After the Fall,” Streitenfeld had begun composing on his own and Klein enlisted him while the film was still in the writing and prep stages.

“I think he really got to the soul of this man,” Klein says, referring to the lead character (Wes Bentley, as an unemployed family man who turns to crime). “There’s a lot going on inside this man who’s falling apart. The music almost illustrates the sadness, the tragedy of this man.”

Composer Marc Streitenfeld Is Arduous In His Search for the Lost Chord

20 May 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Marc Streitenfeld — the composer of “Prometheus,” “American Gangster” and the upcoming “Poltergeist” — can trace his musical roots back to a 19th-century troubadour whose family was executed after he wrote a song mocking the emperor of Germany.

“Which is funny, you know?” he says, laughing in his spacious, comfortable Venice, Calif., studio just days after completing the mix for the “Poltergeist” soundtrack. “That’s the only family musical connection I can find.”

It must have been enough.

The 40-year-old German native has joined the ranks of billion-dollar composers with five films for director Ridley Scott, including “Gangster” and “Prometheus,” and four more for other directors including “The Grey,” “Killing Them Softly” and “After the Fall.” He’s now scoring the series “Hand of God” for Amazon.

It seems like a meteoric rise, considering he’s only been composing for nine years. But this ex-guitarist has been working in various capacities in »

Marc Streitenfeld’s Soundtrack For Gil Kenan’s Poltergeist Available May 19

7 May 2015 3:53 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

British director Gil Kenan proved his atmospheric take on the horror and fantasy genres with his movies Monster House and City of Ember. Now, with legendary filmmaker and producer Sam Raimi (Spiderman, Evil Dead, The Grudge), Kenan directs the remake of the classic 1982 horror movie Poltergeist.

For the soundtrack, available May 19 via Sony Classical, Kenan chose German film score composer Marc Streitenfeld, known for his collaborations with director Ridley Scott.

Poltergeist contemporizes the scary tale about a family – starring Sam Rockwell (Moon, The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy) and Rosemarie DeWitt (Cinderella Man, Rachel Getting Married) – whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces.

When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter (Kennedi Clements) captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever.

Acknowledged for his ambitious and intelligent score for Prometheus, as well as the multi-faceted soundtrack, The Grey, Streitenfeld »

Watch: Trailer For Civil War Drama 'Echoes Of War' Starring James Badge Dale & 'It Follows' Star Maika Monroe

7 April 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We’ve been delighted in the last few years to see veteran character actor James Badge Dale break out to bigger and better things. The actor’s been a familiar face for a while thanks to “The Departed” and “The Pacific,” but racked up a string of high-profile credits and scene-stealing performances in things like “Shame,” “The Grey,” “Flight,” “Iron Man 3,” “The Lone Ranger” and “Parkland,” and finally looks to be graduating to lead roles, with horror-actioner “Spectral” due in 2016.  Read More: The Breakout Performances of 2012 First up though is something smaller in scale, as Badge Dale takes the lead in indie Civil War drama “Echoes Of War,” which hits theaters next month. Written and directed by Australian helmer Kane Senes, it sees the actor play a haunted soldier who returns home to Texas from the conflict, only to spark up a conflict between his family and a cattle rancher neighbor. »

Watch an Unofficial James Bond Movie From the Producer of That 'Power/Rangers' Short

23 March 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

If you enjoyed the gritty Power Rangers movie that caused some controversy regarding its legality this week, now it's time to become familiar with more of Adi Shankar's productions. We don't mean his commercial Hollywood features, like Lone Survivor. The Grey and Killing Them Softly, although those are recommended, too. We mean his other "Bootleg Universe" one-shot films, of which Power/Rangers was the latest. Maybe you're already familiar with his first one, 2012's The Punisher: Dirty Laundry, which brought Thomas Jane back as the Marvel Comics antihero. He also made one for the Spider-Man villain Venom and last year produced an animated Judge Dredd web series, which wasn't tied in any way to Dredd, the official comic book adaptation he worked...

Mark Millar Teases Nemesis Movie

16 March 2015 3:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mark Millar, creator of Wanted and Kick-Ass, has taken to Facebook to tease fans about another long, long, Long gestating adaptation.

Nemesis has been floating around for years now with various figures attached at different stages, and through a sly post to his social media hub, Millar has kickstarted that craze again.

Post by Mark Millar.

Post by Mark Millar.

For those who are unaware, the comic revolves around a philanthropic billionaire who uses his technological prowess and bags of cash to fight for what’s right! And what’s right to him is pretty much pursuing every violent and sordid whim to its fullest, without any regard for who gets in the way of his selfish endeavors. There’s a reason the character has been dubbed “Batman meets the Joker.”

At one stage, Joe Carnahan was incredibly interested in directing. He even penned a script that Millar himself showered with praise. »

7 Actors Who Need A Liam Neeson-Style Comeback

15 March 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In 2008, if someone mentioned the name of actor Liam Neeson, chances are you immediately thought of him in one of two ways. It is likely that you automatically imagined the actor in his portrayals as historical figures – Oskar Schindler, Alfred Kinsey, Michael Collins – or of the gravitas he lent to franchises such as Star Wars and Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. However, that all changed with the release of Taken six winters ago. With his gruff heroics and thick voice, he became one of Hollywood’s most bankable action heroes. Not bad for a man who was 56 years old at the time.

Since Taken, Neeson’s star power has soared. As the biggest action stars of the previous generation (the Fords, Stallones and Schwarzeneggers) struggle to excite and entice audiences for a bloody time at the cinema, Neeson rose into one of the most in-charge (and in demand) action stars of the current era. »

Directors: Joe Carnahan Leads 'Motorcade,' 'Toy Story 4' Gets A Co-Director & More

13 March 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Joe Carnahan ("Stretch," "The Grey") is revving up the long dormant "Motorcade" for DreamWorks. At one time eyed by Tom Cruise, and a few years ago slated to star Ryan Reynolds, with a script from Billy Ray (indeed, his is the most recent draft), the thriller has a bunch of terrorists attacking the President's motorcade during a trip to Los Angeles. Four-wheel Drive Down! We'll see if Carnahan will finally be the guy to get this movie off the ground. [Variety] John Lasseter won't be going it alone with "Toy Story 4." Pixar veteran Josh Cooley, who has credits on "The Incredibles," "Cars," "Ratatouille," and "Up," has graduated to the co-director's chair on the sequel. There's no word yet on plot details, except that it will be a "romantic comedy" and not tied to the original trilogy. [via Empire] "Mama" director Andy Muschietti will be behind the the big screen adaptation of »

8 Reasons Why We're Bummed Liam Neeson Is Quitting Action Films

13 March 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Are you ready for some bad news? Seriously, are you sitting down? Because you're going to need to brace yourself. It looks like we're only going to get around two more years of hardcore, badass action films from the incomparable Liam Neeson.

News: Jimmy Fallon Challenges Liam Neeson to Arm Wrestling

In a recent interview with The Guardian, the star of Run All Night -- as well as the Taken series, Non-Stop, Star Wars, and The Grey -- revealed that he thinks he's only has a few more years of punches to the face left in him.

"Maybe two more years. If God spares me and I’m healthy. But after that, I’ll stop [the action] I think," Neeson said.

Run All Night -The Review

12 March 2015 10:16 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

It would appear that Liam Neeson is continuing his Charles Bronson-esque revenge spree with Run All Night. After countless of films that are all marketed in the same style as Taken and its sequels, you might be surprised to hear that this new genre exercise is more than just a run and gun thriller. In fact, thanks to a script that lends the occasionally exhaustive action some deeper meaning, Run All Night is one of the best films Liam Neeson has done in years. Now if only Jaume Collet-Serra was as interested in highlighting the drama as much as all the running around, we might have more than just a “good” action marathon.

Neeson plays former hitman and now current alcoholic Jimmy Conlon. Years ago he became notorious in the New York crime scene for his skills of disposing targets. His former boss Shawn Maguire (Ed Harris) has also »

When will Liam Neeson go back to consistently making awards contenders?

12 March 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Like many of you, I was pretty surprised and more than a little bit delighted when Liam Neeson made the next act in his illustrious career an action packed one. No one expected Taken to be a hit, or as satisfyingly enjoyable as it was, but it signaled a new trajectory for Neeson. That’s been all well and good, but one thing that it’s cost us is his performances in Oscar fare. Since Taken, Neeson has more or less dropped off of the Academy’s radar, with only one upcoming project hopefully set to return him to prestige territory. I like when he kicks ass, like he does in Friday’s new release Run All Night, but I prefer it when he contends for awards. Neeson is a very strong dramatic actor and certainly very solid as an action hero, but it’s the former where he’s really been able to shine. »

Liam Neeson Says He Has “Maybe Two More Years” Of Action Movies Left

12 March 2015 10:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The 62-year old star of Taken has gone on the record to confirm his badass days may soon be a thing of the past. Liam Neeson, who has since 2008 forged a career off the back of his Bryan Mills persona, spoke out on the subject of his filmic future… and it will apparently have fewer guns and swarthy terrorists.

The Irish thesp sat down with Good Morning America (via /Film) who broached the topic of his action career, asking if it’s something he would hope to continue, to which he answered:

Maybe two more years. If God spares me and I’m healthy. But after that, I’ll stop [the action], I think. I’m in a very, career-wise, great place. [After] the success of certainly the Taken films, Hollywood seems to see me in a different light. I get sent quite a few action-oriented scripts, which is great. I’m not knocking it. »

Liam Neeson Will Stop Making Action Movies in 2 Years

12 March 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the success of Taken in 2009, Liam Neeson carved out quite a niche for himself as an older action star. His career certainly careened down this path, with the iconic actor appearing in 9 more action-packed thrillers that includ The A-Team, The Next Three Days, Unknown, The Grey, Battleship, Taken 2, Non-Stop, A Walk Among the Tombstones and Taken 3. Now, on the eve of his latest 'geriaction' movie, as some have dubbed them, Liam Neeson has declared that he will stop making action movies in 2 years, if he is able to make it that far.

Good Morning America caught up with Liam Neeson to chat about this weekend's Run All Night, which may certainly leave some fans with a sense of deja vu, as it once again features the actor running with a gun as he sometimes screams into a cell phone. The 62 year-old confirms that his days as an action star are numbered though, »

Joe Carnahan is Taking 'Motorcade' for a Spin Over at DreamWorks

12 March 2015 7:12 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Right around the time that I started writing here at FirstShowing in 2009, there was a project called Motorcade in the works. At the time, Ryan Reynolds had just been brought in to replace Tom Cruise in the project, and "24" executive producer Jon Cassar was replacing Len Wiseman in the director's chair. But it's been over five years since that news surfaced, and the project has been dead in the water. But today it has new life as Deadline reports DreamWorks is bringing in Smokin' Aces, The Grey and The A-Team director Joe Carnahan to get the project in gear and finally get it into production. So what's this film about again? Motorcade follows a disgraced Secret Service agent who happens to be in the wrong place at the right time when the president's motorcade is commandeered by terrorists in New York in an effort to kidnap the world leader.

Joe Carnahan To Helm "Motorcase"

12 March 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

DreamWorks has set Joe Carnahan ("The Grey," "Narc") to write and direct their long-gestating action thriller "Motorcade".

The story deals with a terrorist attack on the U.S. President's motorcade as he travels through Los Angeles, and was originally pitched back in 2004 by Hans Bauer and Craig Mitchell.

Several other high-profile names have been linked to the project in the past including Tom Cruise and Len Wiseman. Billy Ray previously took at shot at the script which shifted the original pitch's action from New York to Los Angeles.

It's unclear what changes Carnahan's version will employ just yet. Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald will executive produce.

Joe Carnahan Will Conduct DreamWorks’ Motorcade

11 March 2015 7:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Joe Carnahan has been tapped to write and direct Motorcade for DreamWorks, a project that the studio has had in the works for over a decade.

The thriller will center on a Secret Service agent who fails to stop a deadly and vicious attack on the President of the United States as he rides in a motorcade.

Hans Bauer and Craig Mitchell originally pitched the pic to DreamWorks back in 2004, and the studio picked it up for a modest sum. Over the years, writers Ehren Kruger, Billy Ray and Robert Rodat have all circled for rewrites, and Jon Cassar was at one point attached to direct, but somehow Motorcade has yet to be made. Carnahan, though, is expected to take it on as his next project.
