‘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.

29 April 2016 4:43 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Warner Bros will need to find a new director for The Flash, as Pride And Prejudice And Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter author Seth Grahame-Smith has left the superhero tentpole film over creative differences, Deadline has confirmed. Grahame-Smith first became attached to direct the film in October, speeding past candidates that included WB’s original choice, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who are still on as producers. We’re told Grahame-Smith will remain… »

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...

First Trailer for MGM's 'Ben-Hur' Reboot

16 March 2016 9:07 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Morgan Freeman is a member the cast of MGM's entirely unnecessary reboot of the classic sword-and-sandals epic "Ben-Hur," based on the 1880 Lew Wallace novel "Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ." Timur Bekmambetov ("Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," "Wanted") is directing this new take on the material, following the epic 1959 Charleton Heston classic film, directed by William Wyler, that cleaned up at the Oscars that year (there was an even earlier adaptation of Wallace's novel, in the 1920s). John Ridley ("American Crime," "12 Years a Slave") rewrote the script for MGM. Freeman »

Watch: First Trailer For Timur Bekmambetov's 'Ben-Hur' Starring Jack Huston, Rodrigo Santoro, Pilou Asbaek & Morgan Freeman

Yep, there's a new "Ben-Hur" in town. Russian director Timur Bekmambetov ("Wanted," "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter") is putting his hands on the swords and sandals, and now we have our first taste of what his epic tale looks like.

Jack Huston takes the titular role with Nazanin Boniadi (Esther), Rodrigo Santoro (Jesus), Pilou Asbaek (Pontius Pilate) and Morgan Freeman (Ilderim) joining him in the film that takes Lew Wallace's 1880 biblical epic, and the Academy Award-winning 1959 movie, and turns it into a summer blockbuster. But those involved are hoping the ancient story will have some contemporary resonance.  “There’s something really beautiful about it, especially in the current climate of the world, about different religions and people being at odds against each other,” Huston told USA Today. “How do we find our way out of this, how do we forgive, »

Morgan Freeman is a member the cast of MGM's entirely unnecessary reboot of the classic sword-and-sandals epic "Ben-Hur," based on the 1880 Lew Wallace novel "Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ." That Timur Bekmambetov ("Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," "Wanted") is directing makes this an even tougher pill for me to swallow, given the filmmaker's usual style.

Listen to Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Melanie Lynskey Discuss Acting in Extensive Talk

10 March 2016 2:56 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

When asked which actress she’d like to talk to for a recent extensive discussion, Mary Elizabeth Winstead had only one choice: Melanie Lynskey. Proving she’s just as big a fan of her as we are around here, the two participated in a nearly 40-minute talk for The Talkhouse ranging from 10 Cloverfield Lane (which Winstead is fantastic in) to Togetherness, in which Lynskey currently masterfully portrays a guilt-ridden wife looking to mend her relationship.

They also discuss body image in media and the nightmares of self-taped auditions, while Winstead opens up about starting her career at 12 in Salt Lake City and getting her first role in Touched By an Angel (she notes she got her role changed because she was too nice). The two also touch on improvisation, including a hilarious anecdote about Winstead getting nervous on the set of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter when asked to come up »
