TWC-Dimension Announces Aptly-Named Whodunit ‘Murder Mystery’

24 September 2013 12:45 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The not very imaginatively-titled Murder Mystery has been announced as the second film slated under the equally blah-ly renamed TWC-Dimension. Bob and Harvey Weinstein’s company has teamed up with Endgame for the film directed by Anne Fletcher (The Proposal, 27 Dresses), which is being described as an “action whodunit comedy” written by James Vanderbilt (Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man, White House Down). You’ve piqued my interest. Murder Mystery is the tale of a married couple (so far uncasted) who takes the honeymoon they never had in the hopes of reigniting their struggling relationship. But when one of the passengers on their cruise ship winds up dead, they find themselves embroiled in a…murder mystery…that takes them in a caper all across Europe. Why it’s up to this this normal couple to solve the whodunit all by themselves is not known, but I guarantee that it brings them closer together as life partners, and »

'The Proposal' Director Planning 'Murder Mystery' from 'Zodiac' Scribe

24 September 2013 12:18 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After making a splash awhile back with The Proposal starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, director Anne Fletcher didn't fare too well with the comedy pairing of Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand in The Guilt Trip. Now she's heading into different romantic comedy territory with a project called Murder Mystery. The Weinstein Company announced today that their TWC-Dimension arm is working with Endgame on the "action whodunit comedy" with Fletcher directing from a script by James Vanderbilt (Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man). You can decipher what the inciting incident is, but there's a bit more. The press release says the film follows a married couple who takes the honeymoon they never had in hopes of saving their struggling marriage. But the two soon find themselves in the middle of their very own murder mystery when one of their fellow cruise passengers is found dead. They must travel across Europe to discover »

The Proposal Director Anne Fletcher to Helm Murder Mystery

24 September 2013 10:50 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Bob and Harvey Weinstein’s newly minted TWC-Dimension label has snatched up another project.  The company will team up with Endgame to produce the action comedy Murder Mystery, with The Proposal director Anne Fletcher signing on to take the helm.  Written by James Vanderbilt (Zodiac, White House Down), the film revolves around a married couple that takes a long-delayed honeymoon in the hopes of saving their marriage.  When one of their fellow cruise ship passengers turns up dead, the two set out across Europe to track down the murderer and maybe salvage their relationship in the process. Both Kevin Macdonald (State of Play) and John Madden (Shakespeare in Love) were at different points attached to direct Murder Mystery, and Charlize Theron was initially poised to star in Madden’s iteration.  Obviously those directors fell off, but Theron is still involved as a producer.  Fletcher most recently helmed The Guilt Trip. »

Have Firth, Blunt & Sandler Joined ‘Murder Mystery’?

29 April 2013 3:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s a mystery for sure!

Over the weekend it was reported that Colin Firth, Emily Blunt and ‘funny man’ Adam Sandler had joined Charlize Theron for the John Madden-directed Murder Mystery. The plot follows a newly-wed couple who visit Europe on their honeymoon, only to become involved in a murder scandal. The news was posted by Nrw Filmstifftung (who seem to be funding the project), but within hours of the post the statement was retracted. Representatives for both Colin and Emily have come forward to deny their clients involvement with Murder Mystery, but it all seems a little strange. Have they signed on? Or is this just typical Internet-based folly? We’ll have to wait and see.

If the news is true, what do you think of the casting? I absolutely love both Firth and Blunt and it’d be great to see them together on screen. Sandler, »

Colin Firth, Adam Sandler & More Join Madden's 'Murdery Mystery'?

26 April 2013 11:13 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Well, this is certainly a strange assembly of talent. Charlize Theron is already attached to star in and produce self-explanatory comedy called Murder Mystery from The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Shakespeare in Love director John Madden. And now she might be joined by some interesting American and British talent. THR reports Nrw Filmstifftung made a casting announcement saying Colin Firth, Emily Blunt and mediocre comedy giant Adam Sandler were all boarding the project, however, a few hours after the news surfaced, the company redacted their statement and took it off their funded project list. We're not really sure if the announcement was just premature, but representatives for Blunt and Firth have said the two are not involved in the project. That could just be damage control, or they might just be saying that if there's not a done deal. Either way, I like the sound of this project, and »

Colin Firth, Adam Sandler, Emily Blunt Join Murder Mystery

26 April 2013 8:50 AM, PDT | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Comedy thriller Murder Mystery is the follow-up to director John Madden’s international hit The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel with Charlize Theron coming aboard to star. The latest additions to the comedy whodunit are Colin Firth and Emily Blunt, who star in Dante Ariola’s rom-com Arthur Newman, opening today as well as comedy champ Adam Sandler. Penned by James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man) the film will shoot for 25 days in Western Germany’s North Rhine-Westphalia region. The Agatha Christie-esque caper follows an American couple in Europe who witness a murder, only to find themselves accused of murder, and are drawn into a web of international intrigue....

Colin Firth, Emily Blunt & Adam Sandler Will Solve A 'Murder Mystery' With Charlize Theron

26 April 2013 5:43 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

So, there's two ways to look at this story: as a reteaming between Colin Firth and Emily Blunt, who star in "Arthur Newman," opening today, or as the rare non-Happy Madison outing by Adam Sandler. We'll let you decide which one you want to go with, but the bottom line is this is a pretty good, and unexpected cast for this upcoming comedy. First announced last summer, the aforementioned trio will be joining Charlize Theron in "Murder Mystery," which is pretty much exactly what the title implies. Penned by "Zodiac" and "The Amazing Spider-Man" writer James Vanderbilt, the Agatha Christie-esque story follows an American couple on honeymoon in Europe who have to go on the run after witnessing and being accused of murder, and are drawn into a web of international intrigue. Yes, it's a comedy, but it will also apparently have dashes of suspense and romance as well. »

Charlize Theron To Star in Vigilante Thriller From 'The Killing' Writer

25 March 2013 1:27 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We're starting to suspect that Charlize Theron is planning on cloning herself. It was only on Friday that news emerged that the Oscar-winner, hotter than ever after the success of "Prometheus" and "Snow White & The Huntman," had signed on to a new comedy called "Ladies Night," adding to the long list of bubbling projects that also includes sci-fi "Agent 13" with Rupert Wyatt, Scott Derrickson's horror "Zwart Water," crime thriller "Cities of Refuge," John Madden's "Murder Mystery," a biopic of Marie Colvin, a remake of "Sympathy For Lady Vengeance," Seth MacFarlane's comedy "A Million Days To Die In The West," and an adaptation of Gillian Flynn's "Dark Places." And now she's only gone and added another, with Heat Vision reporting that the actress has set up an as-yet-untitled crime movie at Paramount through her Denver and Delilah shingle, in which she'll star and produce.

Charlize Theron To Star In Comedy 'Ladies Night,' Directed By Fred Savage (Yes, That Fred Savage)

22 March 2013 11:54 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Thanks to the success of "Prometheus" and "Snow White and the Huntsman" last summer (as well as her acclaimed, if ignored-by-awards-bodies performance in "Young Adult"), Charlize Theron is more in demand than ever before. The actress has already wrapped one blockbuster, "Mad Max: Fury Road," and has lots more bubbling under waiting to be picked out as her next project: sci-fi "Agent 13" with Rupert Wyatt, Scott Derrickson's horror "Zwart Water," crime thriller "Cities of Refuge," John Madden's "Murder Mystery," a biopic of Marie Colvin, a remake of "Sympathy For Lady Vengeance," Seth MacFarlane's comedy "A Million Days To Die In The West," and an adaptation of Gillian Flynn's "Dark Places." And somehow, she's found space for one more, as The Hollywood Reporter brings news that Theron will star in the comedy "Ladies Night," being backed by Skydance Productions ("Star Trek," "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol").

Charlize. Tough Chick Chic

1 February 2013 9:23 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Is it even possible for Charlize Theron to not look spectacular? (Her hair was all buzzed off for the Mad Max reboot with Tom Hardy but she's made the most of it here).

Next up for Charlize:

Mad Max: Fury Road (in 2014) A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014? 2015?) Sympathy for Lady Vengeance (2015? Remake of the Park Chan-wook movie)

Three other rumored projects (a horror film Two Eyes Staring, a thriller generically titled Murder Mystery and the sequel Snow White and the Hunstman 2 though it would be really weird if Queen Ravenna was suddenly alive again) could also go before cameras. As per usual, Charlize makes us wait between movies. Such a cruel beauty, that one.  »
