3 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Borgen” co-creator Adam Price is boarding “Rides Upon The Storm,” a one-hour drama series which marks the first collaboration between Danish broadcaster Dr, Franco-German net Arte and recently-launched Sam Productions.

Copenhagen-based Sam Productions, a screenwriter-based production company launched by Price as well as Søren Sveistrup and Meta Louise Foldager, two other high-profile Scandi industry figures, along with the international film powerhouse Studiocanal.

Price, who won a BAFTA for “Borgen,” said “Rides Upon the Storm” had a “character-based story about two brothers and what happens when war and a number of personal conflicts hit a so-called ‘ordinary’ family.”

“Rides Upon the Storm” is produced by Dr with Arte, Sam Productions Aps and Sam Le Francais, the shingle’s French subsid, serving as co-producers. Camilla Hammerich (“Borgen”) is producing.

Dr has already commissioned the first two seasons comprising 10 episode each.

Rumor: 'Spider-Man' Frontrunner Reportedly 'Ender's Game' Star, Asa Butterfield

29 April 2015 9:08 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I saw Avengers: Age of Ultron last night and while I'm not necessarily the most comic book savvy individual, it seems director Joss Whedon wasn't lying when he said there weren't too many Easter Eggs in the movie. At least there weren't any that I really noticed, though these films still can't really get by telling just one story without alluding to a darker, more sinister plan afoot in future films and such will be the cast in Captain America: Civil War, wherein a brand new, non-Andrew Garfield Spider-Man will have a cameo appearance and Marvel is looking to fill those shoes soon as the actor taking over the role is expected on set in June. Last we heard, Nat Wolff (Paper Towns, The Fault in Our Stars), Asa Butterfield (Hugo, Ender's Game), Tom Holland ("Wolf Hall," The Impossible), Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar) and Liam James (The Way, Way Back, »

Review: Jasmine, A Claustrophobic Twilight Zone Of Revenge

25 April 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Dax Phelan, veteran screenwriter and producer based in Los Angeles got the Hong Kong bug on a writing research trip to the city in 2005. By his own tongue-in-cheek admission, it had become somewhat tedious being handsomely paid for writing screenplays that rarely if ever get made. Citing inspiration by such auteurs as Lodge Kerrigan (The Killing TV series, Keane) and the Dardenne brothers (Two Days, One Night) Phelan sensed that Hong Kong could be fertile ground for a psychological thriller that would be his directorial debut. He penned Jasmine based on a story that he had co-written with Jason Tobin.While Hong Kong has a truly enormous vault of thrillers with the revenge theme, it begs pointing out that Jasmine is like none of them...

In addition to the Joker's trademark green hair and red lips, Ayer's version of the villain also features blackened teeth, dozens of "Haha" tattoos across his body and ink on Joker's forehead that reads "Damaged."

Jared Leto’s Joker: First Picture from Suicide Squad

24 April 2015 6:06 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We got a fuzzy shot of Jared Leto referencing The Joker’s appearance in Alan Moore’s The Killing Joke and another one showing off his bright green hair, but it's finally time to see the complete look because David Ayer just unveiled the very first Suicide Squad image of Leto in full costume as The Joker on Twitter. I expected something extreme, but I certainly wasn't imagining something quite like this. (Did The Joker have a grill in the source material?) Regardless, this shot is definitely striking to say the least and also has me believing the guy is an absolute lunatic, which is clearly a step in the right direction. However, it wasn't Heath Ledger's hair, makeup and wardrobe that sold the character in The Dark Knight. It was his insanely committed, haunting performance and Leto's certainly got his work cut out for him if he's going »

First Look: Jared Leto as The Joker in David Ayer's 'Suicide Squad'

24 April 2015 5:59 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Hahahahaha... Finally, after teasing photos of cutting the hair, David Ayer has revealed The Joker in full. Academy Award winning actor Jared Leto plays the DC villain in the upcoming movie Suicide Squad, that David Ayer is preparing to direct with one hell of a cast. Besides Leto, it has Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Scott Eastwood, Joel Kinnaman and Cara Delevingne. This first look is primarily just a promo shot, not an actual still from the film which just started shooting this month up in Toronto. He's got plenty of nice tattoos, that signature green hair, and a purple glove. You may also remember that other reference to The Killing Joke before this Joker reveal. This is a freaky way to introduce him, but damn does he look cool. David Ayer writes: "The Suicide Squad wishes you a Happy Anniversary Mr. J! #Joker75 #SuicideSquad" See the other cast »

Five In Line for 'Spider-Man', Who Will Takeover as the New Webslingerc

23 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last night we learned Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will begin working on a new animated Spider-Man movie for Sony (aren't they all essentially animatedc) with a planned July 2018 release date, but that film is separate from the new adventures of Spider-Man as the studio is set to reboot the webslinger for the second time and a list of five contenders has arrived courtesy of The Wrap. Nat Wolff (Paper Towns, The Fault in Our Stars), Asa Butterfield (Hugo, Ender's Game), Tom Holland ("Wolf Hall," The Impossible), Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar) and Liam James (The Way, Way Back, "The Killing") are reportedly in the running to star as Peter Parker (aka Spider-Man) as the character needs to be cast soon as he's expected to cameo in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, though word is that role won't be filmed until June. "The Wrap" does say others are in contention, but »

Asa Butterfield, Nat Wolff, And More On Shortlist To Play Marvel's 'Spider-Man'

23 April 2015 5:01 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"Captain America: Civil War" is shooting very soon, and the rumors have had it that Marvel's rebooted Spider-Man will make his first appearance in the film. But before that can happen, they need to cast him, and a few names have surfaced as contenders for the gig. The Wrap reports that buzzworthy rising star Nat Wolff ("Paper Towns," "The Fault In Our Stars"), Asa Butterfield ("Hugo," "Ender's Game"), Tom Holland ("Wolf Hall," "In The Heart Of The Sea"), Timothee Chalamet ("Interstellar," "The Adderall Diaries") and Liam James ("The Killing") are in the running. It's certainly not the most diverse selection of players, and we guess those previous assertions by the trade that Spider-Man "would not be white" didn't pan out. That being said, there's still some time for this to play out as the new Peter Parker isn't expected to have to be on set for 'Civil War' until »

Spider-Man Shortlist Includes Nat Wolff, Asa Butterfield And More

22 April 2015 5:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Wrap is reporting tonight that a shortlist of actors to play the new Spider-Man has emerged and as was reported earlier, it contains five names. The young men said to be in contention for the role are: Nat Wolff, Asa Butterfield, Tom Holland, Timothee Chalamet and Liam James. Neither Sony or Disney were prepared to comment on the list, but The Wrap is confident in their source.

While filming on Captain America: Civil War (which will feature a cameo from the webslinger) is set to get underway shortly, it still may be a while until we find out who exactly will be stepping into the iconic role. Apparently, Spidey’s scene won’t be shot until June, so whichever actor ends up snagging the part won’t be needed for at least a few more months.

However, Sony is getting ready to “make test offers” to the young men »

'Wonder Woman': Original Director Wanted 'Braveheart' Type Movie

17 April 2015 2:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Wonder Woman director Michelle MacLaren backed away from the highly-anticipated project, citing creative differences with Warner Bros. Just a few days later, Patty Jenkins came on board to replace her. Today we have new details from Variety about what those creative differences may have been. Multiple sources claim that the director's vision was "vastly different" from the studio's, since she wanted an "epic origin tale" in the same vein as Braveheart, while Warner Bros. wanted a more character-driven story with far less action.

The site's sources claim that that Warner Bros. executives became increasingly worried about her ability to deliver a "large-scale, action-packed production," since she has never directed a feature film before, although she has directed episodes of Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead. With Patty Jenkins now on board, the studio is expected to stick with a more character-based story. Patty Jenkins made her feature »

‘Wonder Woman': The Story Behind Michelle MacLaren’s Exit

17 April 2015 10:16 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While Warner Bros. made a swift decision this week to hire Patty Jenkins as its new “Wonder Woman” director, industry insiders are still chattering about why original helmer Michelle MacLaren suddenly vanished from the project.

The studio is declining to elaborate on the cliched “creative differences” joint statement that was issued when the two parted ways. But, according to multiple sources close to the project, the director’s vision for the movie was vastly different from the studio’s view. MacLaren envisioned the DC Comics-based “Wonder Woman” movie as an epic origin tale in the vein of “Braveheart,” whereas Warner wanted a more character-driven story that was less heavy on action.

Warner executives, these insiders said, became increasingly concerned about MacLaren directing a large-scale, action-packed production when her experience was limited to the small screen, where she made her name directing episodes of “Game of Thrones,” “Breaking Bad” and “The Walking Dead. »

Jared Leto offers a glimpse of his Joker makeover for Suicide Squad

16 April 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jared Leto has revealed a glimpse of his Joker makeover for the Suicide Squad movie.

A selfie of the actor with green hair is now circulating online after he shared the photo on Snapchat.

Earlier this month, director David Ayer posted a picture of the 43-year-old channelling the Joker, recreating the cover image from Alan Moore's 1988 one-shot comic The Killing Joke, which featured art from Brian Bolland and colours by John Higgins.

Suicide Squad will star Will Smith, Viola Davis, Jay Hernandez, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jai Courtney, Karen Fukuhara and Cara Delevingne.

It centres around a group of DC Comics villains - among them Deadshot, Harley Quinn, the Joker and Captain Boomerang - who are dispatched on a government-sanctioned mission of redemption.

Suicide Squad will open in cinemas in August 2016. »

Jared Leto Shows off the Joker’s Green Hair for Suicide Squad

16 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Suicide Squad star Jared Leto must be relishing giving little reveals of the Joker because he’s been doing it for weeks. The shot of him doing The Killing Joke pose was fun and clever (and also taken by director David Ayer) but we’ve also been treated to samples of his Joker voice and a shot of his short, bleached hair. Now he’s snap-chatted a selfie showing off his green dye-job and red lips because we need to know every single step of the process. If this were a complex bit of makeup that took hours and hours, that would be a different situation. Seeing special effects makeup and applying prosthesis is an interesting process. This is hair dye and lipstick. Check out the latest development of Leto’s Joker look below. Maybe next time he’ll show us a close up of purple fabric or perhaps his »

'Wonder Woman' Has a New Director: Patty Jenkins

16 April 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Onetime "Thor: The Dark World" director Patty Jenkins is changing comics allegiances, switching from Marvel to DC to helm the upcoming Wonder Woman movie.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jenkins just closed a deal with Warner Bros. to take over the project from Michelle MacLaren, who departed the flick just days ago amid creative differences with the studio. Warner Bros. was reportedly eager to have a woman helm the film, and looked specifically for female directors for the project.

Jenkins, who directed "Monster" (which netted Charlize Theron a Best Actress Oscar) and the pilot of AMC series "The Killing," had previously been attached to "Thor" sequel "The Dark World," but in a similar situation to MacLaren, left the project over creative differences with Marvel Studios. (Ironically, replacement director Alan Taylor also had some well-documented creative issues with that film.) She would have been the first female to direct a tentpole superhero flick, »

Patty Jenkins to direct Wonder Woman for Warner Bros.

15 April 2015 11:23 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warner Bros. has wasted little time in securing a replacement for outgoing director Michelle MacLaren on the studio’s Wonder Woman movie, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that Patty Jenkins (Monsters) has signed on to helm the film.

Jenkins, whose previous credits includes the pilot for AMC’s The Killing, has previous experience in the superhero genre, having originally been attached to direct Thor: The Dark World, before vacating the director’s chair due to creative differences with Marvel Studios.

Wonder Woman is set for release on June 23rd 2017, with Gal Gadot reprising her role as the Amazon Princess from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Patty Jenkins Now Directing Wonder Woman

The wheel turns. And quickly, this time. Just a day or so after it was announced that Breaking Bad veteran director Michelle MacLaren had left the job of making Wonder Woman for Warners due to creative differences, the studio has hired Monster’s Patty Jenkins to take her place. Jenkins was famously the first director hired to handle Thor: The Dark World, but despite her enthusiasm for the project, never quite saw eye to eye with the Marvel team and was replaced by Alan TaylorGal Gadot is playing the title character, making her first appearance in next March's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice before the Wonder Woman stand-alone adventure arrives in 2017. Jason Fuchs is writing the script for the film, with MacLaren collaborating while she was in development. After helping Charlize Theron to an Oscar with 2003’s Monster, Jenkins has largely worked in TV, kicking off The Killing »
