‘Too Old to Die Young’: Miles Teller to Star in Nicolas Winding Refn’s Amazon Series

27 March 2017 3:46 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Nicolas Winding Refn has so many projects in one stage or development or another that it can be difficult to glean a sense of which might actually see the light of day first. It now appears that his TV series “Too Old to Die Young” is moving to the front of the line, as “Whiplash” star Miles Teller has just been cast in the upcoming Amazon show.

Teller, who’s also appeared in “Divergent,” “Fantastic Four” and an unflattering Esquire cover story, is set to play a grieving Los Angeles police officer navigating an underworld filled with contract assassins representing the Yakuza, Mexican cartels, Russian mob and roving adolescents, among others. The series will follow “killers’ existential journeys in becoming samurai,” because this is Nicolas Winding Refn we’re talking about here and what »

SXSW Film Review: ‘Song to Song’

10 March 2017 11:21 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After making “Days of Heaven” in 1978, director Terrence Malick took a two-decade break from cinema, retreating to Austin, Texas, where his latest movie is set (bits of “The Tree of Life” also filmed there). During his absence, Malick was sorely missed: Here was a master filmmaker who had created one of the most visually stunning movies of all time, only to disappear, J.D. Salinger-esque, from the medium upon which he had so profoundly left his imprint. And then, practically out of the blue, Malick resurfaced with “The Thin Red Line,” after which, the man who’d been silent so long could scarcely shut up, unleashing a creative torrent that reaches its crescendo with “Song to Song.”

It pains me to say it, but Malick might want to consider another lengthy hiatus. Rushed into production mere months after his nearly-self-parodic, Hollywood-set “Knight of Cups,” “Song to Song” finds the maestro in broken-record mode, »

Ryan Gosling To Produce Adaptation Of The Underwater Welder

3 March 2017 11:39 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Damon Lindelof once described graphic novel The Underwater Welder as “the most spectacular episode of The Twilight Zone that was never produced,” and Ryan Gosling seems to agree, as he’s snapped up the rights to it. But cool your jets before you start visualizing Gosling in a skin-tight wetsuit wielding a blowtorch, as right now he’s only down to produce rather than star.

Gosling has been quietly producing films since 2010, with Blue Valentine, Only God Forgives and Lost River already under his belt, and The Underwater Welder looks like a sterling addition to the set. The graphic novel is written by award-winning author Jeff Lemire, known for his DC work on Justice League Dark, Swamp Thing and Green Arrow, as well as All-New Hawkeye and Extraordinary X-Men for Marvel.

It tells the tale Jack Joseph, an offshore oil rig suba diver responsible for underwater repairs. Back on shore, »

Nicolas Winding Refn to direct Amazon series Too Old To Die Young

9 February 2017 11:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was only last month that a report came out regarding Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn’s next feature, but now news has broken that Refn is to work on an entirely different project for Amazon.

The man behind Drive and Only God Forgives is set to direct a new a crime thriller in the vein of Refn’s early work on his Pusher trilogy.

The series will be called Too Old To Die Young, and Refn will write, direct and produce the project.

Reported in Variety, the show will focus on the criminal underworld of Los Angeles and will explore “various characters’ existential journeys from being killers to becoming samurai’s in the city of angels”.

The venture is bound to be a stylish affair – given Refn’s neon soaked history – and makes sense given the two parties partnership over the director’s last film The Neon Demon.

Film Quality Is Subjective: A Film Is Good Because We Say It Is

5 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Graeme Robertson on why film quality is subjective…

It’s a wonderful job being a film critic. Being able to watch films and write about them all hours of the day and night, discussing them with your fellow critics and generally have a merry old time talking about how wonderful it is to be a film critic.

Although when we disagree on something that’s when the fights start, with critics climbing into the steel cages ready to defend the honour of the films that they proclaim to be the best against the wretched scum who think otherwise.

Or something a bit less dramatic than that, like a polite discussion or a particularly stern talk over a pint or two.

Recently my Flickering colleague Samuel Brace penned an article (which you should all read by the way) in which he argued that with regards to films, “Quality is very much objective. »

Carole Baraton, Yohann Comte, Pierre Mazars Team With Asuna to Launch Charades

26 January 2017 9:49 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris – Three seasoned French industry players have left their companies to help launch Charades, a new international and co-production sales outfit formed in time for the Berlin Film Festival.

Carole Baraton, Yohann Comte and Pierre Mazars packed up from Wild Bunch, Gaumont and Studiocanal, respectively, to join Constantin Briest’s investment company, Asuna, in forming Charades. Their goal is to compete for high-profile projects, with Asuna, which specializes in co-production and co-distribution, in charge of corporate financing. Asuna has already attracted several private investors.

Briest said Charades hopes to acquire between 10 to 15 films per year, with the aim of “becoming a boutique super-indie.” Comte said that the films would range widely in terms of budget, genre and nationalities.

The underlying idea of the company is to board projects at an early stage in order to be involved in the creative and financing process as much as possible, Mazars said.

Of 20 sampled films, 11 fulfill all three requirements of Alison Bechdel’s litmus test for female representation in storytelling, according to a new Bustle survey. The sample pool is admittedly subjective, with a mix of ten of the year’s highest grossing films, and ten of what the author deemed “the most buzzed about films.”

Finding Dory

Captain America: Civil War

“Zootopia”

The Jungle Book

The Secret Life of Pets

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

“Deadpool”

Suicide Squad

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them

Doctor Strange

La La Land

“Arrival”

“Ghostbusters”

“Moana”

“Moonlight”

Manchester By the Sea

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Synopsis revealed for Nicolas Winding Refn’s new film The Avenging Silence

12 January 2017 1:10 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Nicolas Winding Refn loves a brooding, near silent hero – as seen by his previous movies Drive, Only God Forgives and Valhalla Rising. Well, he looks to be back at it again, revealed by an extensive synopsis for his new movie The Avenging Silence.

Refn, whose most recent movie The Neon Demon debuted last year, is supposedly working on an action spy thriller set in Tokyo, Japan, writing the flick with Bond veterans Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.

Perhaps then The Avenging Silence will be his most accessible film since Drive. There is a caveat however; the film’s protagonist is a mute.

The synopsis, coming from the Crouching Tigers Project Lab by way of The Playlist, reads as follows:

The spy was one of the leading spies in Europe. An injury inflicted to his vocal cords during a failed mission six years ago left him mute, forcing him to leave his profession. »

Newswire: Nicolas Winding Refn’s next movie will be about a mute spy fighting the yakuza

11 January 2017 3:44 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon was a nice return to form after the disappointing Only God Forgives, but it sounds like his next film will be a direct attempt to cater to fans of his phenomenally stylish 2011 thriller Drive. For cool people who like cool stuff, that’s pretty good news all on its own. It gets even better, though, because The Playlist has uncovered some details about the film’s plot, and it sounds like it’ll be the very best kind of ridiculous.

As we previously reported, the film is called The Avenging Silence and it’s a spy thriller set in Tokyo, but this new report adds that it will be about a former European spy who lost the use of his vocal records after a botched mission, leaving him unable to speak and with no choice but to give up the spy game ...

TrustNordisk has acquired Jens Dahl’s “3 Things,” a thriller featuring “Game of Thrones” star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and rising Danish actress Birgitte Hjort Sørensen (“Borgen,””Vinyl”).

“3 Things” marks the feature debut of Dahl, whose screenwriting credits include Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Pusher” and several Scandinavian hit series such as “Norskov.”

Mikael demands three things from the police: that his former girlfriend is brought to him, that the police bring the contents of a box he has stored, and that he is served butter chicken from his favorite restaurant. The police, under heavy time pressure to get him to witness the following day, agree.

Caroline Schlüter Bingestam (“When Animals Dream”) and Jacob Jarek (co-producer of “Only God Forgives”) of Copenhagen-based Profile Pictures are producing. »

Ryan Gosling: From Mouseketeer and indie darling to Hollywood movie star

4 January 2017 5:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sara Hemrajani on the rise of Ryan Gosling

La La Land, the award-tipped ode to musicals from Hollywood’s Golden Age, sees Ryan Gosling dance, sing, wax lyrical about jazz and woo Emma Stone’s aspiring actress in modern day Los Angeles. It’s a terrific performance and the 36-year-old seems to be a lock for one of the best actor Oscar nods. To top that off, he will be hitting the screens across the year in Terrence Malick’s Weightless and the eagerly anticipated Blade Runner sequel.

Showbusiness isn’t new to Gosling – he was a Mousekeeter (alongside pre-teen Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera) in The Mickey Mouse Club, and he played the title role in the Young Hercules series in the late 1990s. Gosling followed television with some smartly chosen indie features and, not too long after, he was primed for the big leagues as a major movie star. »
