Exclusive: Big shakeup at Silver Pictures, Joel Silver‘s producing label. I’m told that his two top creative executives — president Andrew Rona and Evp Alex Heineman – have just left the company. Both Rona and Heineman came there after Universal sold Rogue Pictures to Relativity and Rona, who ran that label, moved on. He took the Silver Pictures job after longtime head Susan Downey exited to partner in Team Downey with husband Robert Downey Jr. I’m told that Rona and Heineman intend to start their own production shingle. A spokesperson for Silver confirmed the moves, and said Silver wished them well as they set up their new venture. Silver kept a prolific pace even as the producing great transitioned from a longtime Warner Bros producing deal to being backed by StudioCanal and distributing through Universal Pictures. During Rona and Heineman’s time at Silver, the label produce 12 movies including »

Last week’s X-Men teaser promised an in-depth look at Days of Future Past, this summer’s hotly-anticipated reunion prebootquel. Sure enough, director/pitchman Bryan Singer and the X-cast have teamed up with Empire magazine to unveil 25 magazine covers featuring the sprawling cast of characters who occupy Future Past’s two timelines.
The most notable revelation is a full-sized Sentinel, one of several mutant-hunting megadroids who torment the X-Men throughout the generations.
First up, here’s a look at the #Sentinel Mark I, circa 1973. #XMen #Empire25 @EmpireMagazine pic.twitter.com/gNcwwc68FX

Miles Teller wowed Sundance audiences with his performance as a virtuoso drummer in the opening night selection “Whiplash,” directed by Damien Chazelle. Teller, 26, is no stranger to the fest. Last year, he starred in “The Spectacular Now,” which debuted at the festival, and he can be seen in the upcoming comedy “That Awkward Moment,” starring Zac Efron.
Ramin Setoodeh: How many times have you been to Sundance?
Miles Teller: This is my second year. My favorite part of this business is film festivals. Films like this that are shot in 19 days. They need to bring people to Sundance in order to get a viewing.
Rs: You almost turned down “Whiplash.”
Mt: I had just done “Divergent.” I had been on it for four months. The year before, I’d done four films, so I’d worked a lot, and I just wanted to hang out. Then the script came in and I read it, »

Variety is reporting that Simon Kinberg (Sherlock Holmes, X-Men: The Last Stand) has finished re-writing the script for the upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot and director Josh Trank (Chronicle) plans to begin testing actors for the roles of Reed Richards (aka Mister Fantastic) and Sue Storm (aka Invisible Woman) by the end of the month. During the Sundance Film Festival, Miles Teller (Project X) was asked if he will be playing Richards. The actor replied: "Yeah that should be happening in the next few weeks." Even though he made it sound like he already has the role, it turns out he meant to say he's still auditioning. Other actors expected to test for the part include Kit Harington (Pompeii, "Game of Thrones") and Richard Madden ("Game of Thrones"). Meanwhile, Kate Mara and Saoirse Ronan will test for the role of Sue Storm. Michael B. Jordan (Chronicle) is already attached to star as Johnny Storm, »
20th Century Fox’s new Fantastic Four boasts a director in Chronicle’s Josh Trank, a release date of June 19, 2015, and a small army in screenwriters, including X-Men: Days Of Future Past’s Simon Kinberg. What it conspicuously lacks, to this point, is a cast, and it wouldn’t be much of a movie without one of them.But, with the long-agonised-over script now officially locked, Variety reports that there are screen tests planned for the likes of Game Of Thrones’ Kit Harrington, Divergent and Project X’s Miles Teller, Saoirse Ronan and Kate Mara, who will need no introduction to House Of Cards fans.Teller, in fact, seemed to confirm that he would be playing Reed Richards, aka Mr. Fantastic, when quizzed on the rumours at Sundance. “Yeah, that should be happening in the next few weeks,” he told reporters. Those comments have subsequently been dialled back, and it »
It was almost half a year ago when news started to break that Miles Teller (Project X, 21 & Over) had reportedly met with director Josh Trank to discuss a lead role in Twentieth Century Fox’s reboot of Fantastic Four. A few months later, Teller confirmed that he had been in talks but claimed to be unsure of his involvement.
While Fox is busy promoting their second most expensive film of all-time in X-Men: Days of Future Past, banking on it to potentially relaunch the franchise in a sense, their next Marvel movie has had little to no news when it comes to story and characters. We know it begins shooting this ...

Opening night films at the Sundance Film Festival are a bit like opening acts: The audience is still spilling into town, and while the theater may be packed, the town is still half-full. Opening night films are generally forgettable crowd pleasers too: Sure, they warm the winter audience up, but at the end of the day, everyone's talking about the films that come on next. Last night, Whiplash – kicking off the 30th annual Sundance Film Festival – was something very different: the rare opening act that may steal some of the bigger headliners' thunder. »
“Babysitting,” which is part of Other Angle’s roaster for the Unifrance’s three-day Rendez-Vous mart, has been picked up by Russia (All Media), Belgium (Victory) and Switzerland (Praessens).
A comedy starring Philippe Lacheau, Gerard Jugnot and Clotilde Courau, “Babysitting” turns on an employee who is asked by his boss and his wife to babysit their son, an out-of-control teenage brat. The next morning, they receive a call from the police warning them that their son is missing and their villa has been turned out. The parents must watch a found footage of the night’s events to find out what happened to their son.

The found-footage style of filmmaking has become so played out that the Paranormal Activity series' most recent attempt at reinvention comes off as a different kind of rehash – of The Blair Witch Project, Chronicle, Project X, and an assortment of other films that weren't all that original to begin with. This time out, instead of unfolding via homemade surveillance footage or via laptop cameras that have been conveniently left on, the gimmick is your usual guys-constantly-carrying-a-camera-around setup. Still, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones does depart from the typically bland McMansions of the earlier films and places us in a slightly more promising and alive milieu: a two-story apartment complex in a Mexican-American corner of Oxnard, California.We open on Graduation Day at the local high school, and see Hector (Jorge Diaz) and his best friend Jesse (Andrew Jacobs) fooling around with their new camera. We watch the two buds goof »

Congratulations are in order, sorta, for Peter Jackson and his Hobbit team. According to TorrentFreak’s annual list, the first film in their trilogy was downloaded well over eight million times in 2013, making it the year’s most pirated movie.
It wasn’t, however, a runaway victory. An Unexpected Journey was followed closely by Django Unchained, which has an estimated download count of 8.1 million — just 300,000 fewer than The Hobbit, even though The Hobbit’s worldwide box office take was more than twice what Django made. Two blockbuster sequels — Fast and Furious 6 and Iron Man 3 — plus a surprisingly high-performing Oscar »
