Doctor Who’s Matt Smith To Star In Patient Zero

21 November 2014 8:35 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Since leaving the massively popular British sci-fi series Doctor Who in 2013, Matt Smith has been racking up an impressive number of major roles in buzzy tentpoles like Terminator: Genisys and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and now the actor has added one more exciting project to his schedule. Deadline reports Smith will star in Screen Gems’ pandemic thriller Patient Zero opposite Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer.

In the pic, an unprecedented global pandemic of a super strain of rabies has transformed its hosts into a new species fueled by violence. One human survivor (Smith), inexplicably immune to the horrific virus, possesses the ability to communicate with this new species, which makes him the only person capable of spearheading a hunt for the cause of the virus. When his wife becomes infected, the man must race against time to find Patient Zero and extract a cure from them.

Cinematographer Shane Hurlbut on Camera Tests and the Joy of Older Lenses

16 September 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

I first saw cinematographer Shane Hurlbut speaking at a trade show held in New York City in 2010 hosted by Canon. Hurlbut had just finished shooting Act of Valor, shot predominately using the Canon 5D Mark II, and he burst on stage with enough energy to power the building. At the time I wrote that he was “loud, in your face, cracking jokes while dashing about the stage,” but it was also clear he had a passion both for the gear and for sharing information. Since then Hurlbut has lensed the pictures Deadfall, Need for Speed, and the currently in […] »

Kelly Greyson (“Alone Yet Not Alone”) will star in Mutual Film Company’s spy thriller “Double Indentity” as a socialite and CIA agent.

Mutual, headed by Gary Levinsohn, most recently produced a pair of spy thrillers — “Deadfall,” starring Eric Bana, Olivia Wilde, and Charlie Hunnam; and “Jack Reacher,” starring Tom Cruise and based on the Lee Child book series.

Mutual acquired rights earlier this year to Zach Ayer’s screenplay “Double Identity,” which focuses on the daughter of a Washington, D.C., politician using her paparazzi past as the perfect CIA cover.

Greyson can be seen in Holocaust drama “Return to the Hiding Place,” “To Have and to Hold” and “Little Boy.”

“Kelly’s recent body of work has created a lot of momentum for her career and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to capitalize on that,” said Levinsohn. “She exhibits a unique range of talents that will »

Rachel Weisz and Jane Fonda join all-star cast of Paolo Sorrentino's post-Oscar project

6 May 2014 7:37 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The last time high-style Italian auteur Paolo Sorrentino attempted an English-language film, the results were interesting but muddled: starring Sean Penn as a past-prime goth-rock star crossing America in search of a Nazi war hunter, 2011's unabashedly odd Irish-Italian co-production "This Must Be the Place" had its champions, but was deemed enough of a misfire to send the director back to the safety of home. His follow-up, last year's Fellini-inspired Roman valentine "The Great Beauty" was as Italian as Italian can be, and his most universally acclaimed film to date -- even winning the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Bolstered by that success, Sorrentino is wading back into English-language waters. Boasting Italian, Swiss and British financing, "Youth" will tell the story of two septuagenarian men -- one a filmmaker trying to assemble his last masterwork, the other a composer being lured out of retirement -- holidaying together in the Alps, »

At first this was a baffling experience, there was rumours of a lot more new content being added and when you logged into the Ios app for Lovefilm/Amazon post switchover, suddenly you were faced with A Lot of new content, things like Aliens, Congo, Cujo, Invaders from Mars and lots of HBO shows including Eastbound and Down, Enlightened and the Sopranos as well as Community in the ‘Recently Added’ section.

Of course this was too good to be true and you could add these to your watchlist but then not actually watch them. So when things calmed down and you logged back in, these titles it turned out were part »
