Brad Anderson to Direct Action Thriller Shadow Run

22 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Sony Pictures has hired Brad Anderson to direct a new action thriller called Shadow Run. I’m a big fan of Anderson’s past work, which includes The Machinist, Session 9, and Transsiberian. The guy is a talented filmmaker who is good with the characters and stories he tells. He has also worked on TV series such as The Wire, Fringe, Boardwalk Empire, and The Killing.

Shadow Run comes from a spec script by Joe Gazzam. The story begins when "a viral attack puts lives in danger, forcing a CIA agent to enact a secret prisoner exchange: Russia’s most notorious spy for the American scientist who can create a cure.”

Anderson recently helmed The Call, which starred Halle Berry, as well as last month’s Stonehearst Asylum, starring Kate Beckinsale. I’m looking forward to seeing how this new project of his pans out. I think Marvel needs to »

Brad Anderson Takes Shadow Run For Sony

18 November 2014 8:32 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Machinist helmer Brad Anderson has signed on to direct Shadow Run, a mysterious actioner that is being broadly described as “Safe House on a plane.”

The project emerged first as a spec script by Joe Gazzam, which became the object of a financial tug of war between studios last February. Michael De Luca and Andrea Giannetti have been tasked with handling the film for Sony, and they’ll work alongside producers Neal H. Moritz and Hernany Perla.

Plot details are scarce at the moment, but Anderson’s involvement indicates that the script impressed the well-respected director. His past projects include Halle Berry thriller The Call, star-studded period mystery-thriller Stonehearst Asylum and episodes of acclaimed series like The KillingBoardwalk EmpireFringeThe Wire and Treme.

No casting has yet been announced, though Sony will likely be searching for a bankable, already established action star who can carry the pic. »

It appears that Monster director Patty Jenkins is now close to making her second feature film in over a decade.  The talented filmmaker was previously attached to helm Thor: The Dark World but subsequently dropped out over creative differences with Marvel.  Her other credits include directing the pilot for AMC’s The Killing as well as episodes of Entourage and Arrested Development, but now THR reports that she’s turning her attention to the action-comedy genre with a remake of the 2011 Norwegian film Jackpot.  Based on a story by crime author Jo Nesbo (Headhunters and The Snowman), the film revolves around four men who win big in a sports pool, only to resort to lethal measures when dividing the winnings proves difficult.

Watch: Vintage TV Special 'The Rocketeer: Excitement In The Air'

5 November 2014 2:30 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Here’s a throwback for all the children of the late '70s and '80s. Created by Dave Stevens, Cliff Secord was a stunt pilot who discovered a mysterious jet pack, which gave him the ability to fly. Donning the equipment, Secord became The Rocketeer, a crime-fighter who took on, among other foes, the Nazis. Stevens’ airborne adventurer first appeared in comic book form in 1982. Then, in 1991, he flew onto the big screen in Disney’s “The Rocketeer," directed by Joe Johnston (“Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Jumanji,” “Honey I Shrunk the Kids”). Bill Campbell (now Billy Campbell, and perhaps most recognizable for his portrayal of Darren Richmond on “The Killing”) played the titular stuntman. As a lead-in to the film, which opened in late June 1991, Campbell hosted a half-hour documentary on the character and mankind’s ever-burning desire to fly unimpeded.

Scream Reboot Gets Series Order from MTV

28 October 2014 2:32 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“Do you like scary movies?” If this line from Wes Craven’s Scream still sends a shiver down your spine, then perhaps you should prepare to be creeped out by more cryptic phone calls, as MTV has officially put in a series order for their Scream reboot.

MTV made the announcement via Twitter, using blood-splattered emojis to get the message across, in addition to a listed phone number. If you call the number, a man imitating Roger L. Jackson’s chilling vocal cords says, “Do you like scary TV? Scream is coming to MTV October 2015.”

The first season of the show will consist of 10 episodes and it is believed that the franchise’s iconic Ghostface outfit will not be worn by any killers early on, based on this statement made by R.J. Torbert of Fun World (the official rights-holder and manufacturer of the Ghostface costume) in an interview with Ghostface. »

The Killing: Season 1-3 DVD Review

27 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Amongst the plethora of television thrillers, mysteries and detective stories, the Nordic Noir genre is undoubtedly the one of the moment. As people turn away from your standard city cop thriller, a bleak Scandinavian vibe is satisfying the urges and they’re slowing down the pace in favour of character-led drama – where people actually have to work things out.

Originally a Danish series called Forbrydelsen, the Us version of The Killing, written and produced by Veena Sud, took all the good things and thankfully kept them (including the knitwear) in this equally exciting and absorbing television drama. Just as season four of the Emmy-nominated The Killing comes to Netflix, we’re excited to share the news that you can pick up seasons 1 to 3 on DVD and Blu-ray for the first time as one complete collection and also as single disc releases, with season 2 and 3 making their UK home entertainment debut this week. »

‘The Killing: Complete Third Season’ Blu-ray Review

26 October 2014 2:39 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

In the final season of The Killing, everything comes full circle and the past comes back to haunt Linden (Mireille Enos) who seemed to have finally escaped from the life of the homicide detective. Dragged back to the case that started her obsession, this is the one to make Linden question if her instincts were right, or was there a miscarriage of justice?

Moving away from politics, there is still a hint of police corruption in The Killing Season 3 pulling Linden back into being a homicide detective.  When Ray Seward (Peter Sarsgaard) a murderer from her past is nearing his execution, Linde begins to question his guilt when bodies of young women are discovered bearing the same tell-tale marks of his victim.  With Holder (Joel Kinnaman) by her side and James Skinner (Elias Koteas) her past partner investigating the murders, a whole new can of worms are opened up.
