10 May 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

We’ve been hearing bits and pieces of news regarding Beetlejuice 2 for a few years now. Back in 2012, director Tim Burton was waiting to see how Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and David Katzenberg‘s script turned out, saying he’d keep an “open mind” about directing the sequel. The director’s interest in the project has significantly risen over the years, but […]

Summer Preview — TV Edition!

6 May 2016 4:41 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

So much good TV, so little time. … We’re all busy so I sorted through the upcoming series to highlight a few that I think have potential. Let me know what shows you’re looking forward to in the comments!

May 22

Preacher — AMC

Expectations are high for this adaptation of the revered comic series. Dominic Cooper (Captain America, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Dracula Untold) plays the titular preacher, who lives in a dusty Texas town and who is imbued with a special power. With a character named Tulip and an Irish vampire in the mix, this is going to be one weird, wild ride!

Scream — MTV

Did you guess whodunit last year? I had a sprinkling of an inkling. … (A year later, I’m still afraid to spoil it!) Season 2 kicks off with Emma returning to Lakewood after taking some time to recover from the horrors of last summer, »

Movie News: 'The Flash' Needs a Director, Quick; Jeremy Irons to Return as Alfred in 'Justice League'

2 May 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The Flash: Seth Grahame-Smith, who was attached to make his feature directing debut with superhero movie The Flash, has departed the project due to "creative differences."

The plan is to retain the script and find a new director; Ezra Miller is still set to star. The movie is scheduled for release on March 16, 2018.

Comic Book Review: Rough Riders #1

2 May 2016 9:41 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

   First of all let’s just get this out of the way, I am a sucker for books and movies that feature prominent moments and figures from American History no matter how ridiculous the concept seemed. For example in films movies like Wild Wild West and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Also in books titles like American Legends (Top Cow Productions Inc. & Image Comics) and All Star Western (DC Comics) and well you get the trend. Now Adam Glass through Aftershock Comics has released a very interesting book called “Rough Riders”. Which features a team of soon to be legends such as Theodore Roosevelt, Thomas Edison, Harry Houdini as well as others. They are set to travel to Cuba and defeat a threat using alien technology to destroy American vessels. The cover alone sold me the book as it features the team of Rough Riders in an antique style color palette »

‘The Flash’ Loses Director Seth Grahame-Smith Over “Creative Differences”

29 April 2016 4:50 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The narrative for Warner Bros. and their DC Universe hasn’t been a good one. Lagging far behind Marvel and their massively successful Cinematic Universe — but hardly at war with one another as some have suggested — Warner Bros. knew they had to leverage their vast DC intellectual properties in a similar manner. But racing to get to a ‘Civil War’ like face off movie as quickly as possible, rather than letting their characters breathe and define themselves, Warner Bros. stumbled hard with the largely incoherent “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.” Tonight, WB hits another snag: director Seth Grahame-Smith is departing from “The Flash” film over “creative differences” with WB. No further reasons were given, but it’s another snafu for Warner Bros.

The Flash Movie Loses Its Director Over “Creative Differences”

29 April 2016 4:38 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Work on the Fastest Man Alive’s solo movie just came to a screeching halt with the news that Seth Grahame-Smith has departed the DC Comics adaptation over “creative differences.” Set to be released on March 3rd, 2018, The Flash will see Ezra Miller suit up as the Scarlet Speedster after joining the rest of the Dceu’s heroes in next year’s Justice League.

Details on what these “creative differences” may have entailed have yet to be revealed, but Warner Bros. will apparently keep Grahame-Smith’s screenplay (which was written based off a treatment by The Lego Movie helmers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller). However, a new filmmaker taking over the project could lead to at least some changes being made to the script.

Regardless, The Flash would have marked the directorial debut of Grahame-Smith, who’s most well known as the author and screenwriter »

The Flash loses director Seth Grahame-Smith over ‘creative differences’

29 April 2016 4:24 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Warner Bros.’ Dceu is just getting started, The Flash has just lost its director, Seth Grahame-Smith, over ‘creative differences’ according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Grahame-Smith is the author of the parodies Pride & Prejudice & Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as well as the screenwriter for their film adaptations. He is primarily a screenwriter and Flash would have been his directorial debut. There is no word yet on what these creative differences might have been, but perhaps WB were a little wary of letting a first-time director have control over such a hot property. Though Grahame-Smith has left the film as its director, WB will still retain his script, one he worked off of a treatment written by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.

Even though he’s left The Flash, Grahame-Smith is also involved with several other WB projects. He’s been tapped as the screenwriter for The Lego Batman Movie, »

‘The Flash’ Movie Loses Director Over Creative Differences

29 April 2016 4:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Seth Grahame-Smith is leaving as director of “The Flash” due to “creative differences” with Warner Bros.

The Flash” would have been the feature directorial debut for Grahame-Smith, who authored and wrote the screenplays for “Pride & Prejudice & Zombies” and “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.”

Grahame-Smith wrote the script for “The Flash,” based on a treatment from Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Ezra Miller is starring as the speedy superhero — also known as Barry Allen — and was introduced in Warner’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

Warner Bros. has set “The Flash” for release on March 3, 2018 so it may not have to shift that date should it be able to get another director on board soon.

Miller is also appearing as The Flash in “Justice League Part 1,” which began shooting this month with Zach Snyder directing.

Grahame-Smith is a writer on the studio’s “Lego Batman Movie” and is working on its “Beetlejuice” sequel. »

"The Flash" Movie Loses Its Director

29 April 2016 12:50 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Pride & Prejudice & Zombies" and "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" writer Seth Grahame-Smith, who was attached to direct the upcoming "The Flash" movie for Warner Bros. Pictures, has left that project over "creative differences".

Grahame-Smith would have made his directorial debut on the film based on the iconic DC scarlet speedster character who is being played by Ezra Miller. Miller was first seen as the character briefly in two scenes of last month's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

The project will retain Grahame-Smith's script, which he wrote working off a treatment from Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. With the film not due out for another two years, there's plenty of time for the studio to find a replacement director.

Grahame-Smith still remains involved in other Warners project including "The Lego Batman Movie" and a "Beetlejuice" sequel.

‘Hardcore Henry’ Producer Timur Bekmambetov on Head Explosions, Cameraman as Lead Actor

8 April 2016 1:26 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Ilya Naishuller’s “Hardcore Henry” storms into theaters this weekend courtesy of Stx Entertainment with an inventive gimmick: It’s shot entirely from the first-person point of view of its unseen title character, who goes to violent lengths to rescue his wife (Haley Bennett) from a telekinetic albino warlord (Danila Kozlovsky) with the help of a human chameleon played by Sharlto Copley. The buzzy new film has an unseen force of its own, Russian filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov (“Wanted,” “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”), who produced “Hardcore Henry” after watching Naishuller’s innovative “Bad Motherfucker.” Here, Behmambetov shares his thoughts about the new film, »

Exclusive: Lr Talks to Timur Bekmambetov About 'Hardcore Henry', 'Ben-hur' and More

7 April 2016 11:26 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Opening this Friday, April 8 is one of the more innovative action films you’re likely to see anytime soon when Hardcore Henry opens nationwide.

It’s the directorial debut by Ilya Naishuller, a Russian punk rocker-turned-filmmaker who caught the eye of Russia’s most successful filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) with the music video for his band Biting Elbows, and the two of them set out to create something similar for the big screen. (You can watch Ilya’s original video here, but Warning: it’s not really safe for work or for young kids.)

The Hardcore Henry of the title is a man who died but was brought back to life by his wife (Haley Bennett), who is then promptly kidnapped by a powerful warlord named Akan (Danila Kozlovsky) who sends his army of mercenaries to stop Henry from getting her back. Then there’s the mysterious Jimmy (Sharlto Copley »

The Lego Batman Movie Poster Features A Brick Bat-Symbol

22 March 2016 2:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following that first batch of official stills from The Lego Batman Movie, actor Will Arnett, who will once again provide the voice for the titular Caped Crusader, has taken to Twitter to unveil the first teaser poster for the highly anticipated Lego Movie spinoff.

There’s not really a whole lot to the one-sheet, but it does feature a cool Lego brick version of the now iconic Bat-symbol – and if you look closely you’ll catch a glimpse of Gotham’s skyline.

The Batman character from The Lego Movie was easily the highlight, though pretty much everything about Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s animated adventure was… well, awesome. The directing duo won’t be back for this outing however, as it’s Chris McKay sitting behind the camera and working from a script by Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter creator Seth Grahame-Smith. So, it’s understandable then that fans are »

Latest 'Hur' Remake Gets a Loud, Bombastic Trailer for the Fast and Furious Crowd

18 March 2016 12:49 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Ben-Hur' 2016 with Jack Huston: Chariot race to the death. 'Ben-Hur' 2016 trailer: 'Gladiator' meets 'Fast Seven' meets 'Star Wars' meets… Paramount Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer have released the trailer for their 2016 Ben-Hur remake (or reboot or readaptation) – a.k.a. Fast and Furious A.D., as one wag called it in an online comment. Instead of grandiose spectacle featuring at its core a “human” story with Christian overtones, this chariot-and-sandals epic is being sold as Gladiator meets Fast Seven meets Spartacus: Blood and Sand meets Star Wars – with Morgan Freeman's Sheik Ilderim as the Roman Empire's dreadlocked version of Alec Guinness' Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi. Say what you will, the trailer-makers sure know their target audience. And that's not the same crowd that would go check out what's usually referred to in the U.S. media as “faith” (i.e., Christian) movies. One assumes that particular audience segment will be getting »

Ben-Hur Trailer Paints An Odd Picture Of Film’s Own Relevance

17 March 2016 9:50 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Ben-Hur is coming your way in August, and if you weren’t aware of the fact, it isn’t much of surprise. There’s a trailer for the film, which showcases the obvious – Romans, chariots, betrayal…, sand – but, it’s a trailer that doesn’t seem to have a way to speak to anyone.

The film stars Jack Huston, who you probably aren’t overly familiar with, but recognize from Boardwalk Empire, and has Morgan Freeman in it. Other than that, the film isn’t really drawing any crowds off name recognition.

It’s directed by Timur Bekmambetov, of Wanted and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which isn’t likely to sell Ben-Hur to you.

But, oddest of all, the trailer zips through its own premise in a way that makes it hard to figure who, if anyone, it expects to show up.

It’s already a film that will make cinephiles nervous, »

New Trailers: 'Ben-Hur,' 'Now You See Me 2' and 'Central Intelligence'

16 March 2016 11:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

In this roundup of new trailers, we have a double dose of Morgan Freeman for you. Unfortunately, he's not in all three, as he'd probably fit in well in Central Intelligence.   Ben-Hur We've seen this story before. More than a few times, actually. But Lew Wallace's 1880 novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ is one worth retelling, or re-adapting, over and over. Each time with the latest in cinemtatic technology, be it widescreen spectacle or, now, plenty of CG effects. This one comes to us from director Timur Bekmambetov (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and stars Jack Huston (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) as the title nobleman turned slave turned chariot champion. Also Morgan Freeman with dreadlocks. See it in theaters starting August...
