Can Kevin Hart Bring Heart to 'Intouchables' Remakec

1 October 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

French comedy-drama The Intouchables, about a wealthy quadriplegic who hires a street-wise minority from the projects as his caretaker, grossed over $425 million in theaters worldwide throughout 2012, so naturally rights were quickly acquired for an upcoming English-language retelling of the story. Now it's being reported the U.S. remake, headed up by The Weinstein Company, has finally found its star duo in Colin Firth (The King's Speech) and Kevin Hart (Think Like a Man). Firth, long attached to the project, will take over as Fran?ois Cluzet's wealthy quadriplegic character, while Hart will replace Omar Sy as the young man from the projects who cares for him. Hart brings bankability to the project via a built-in fan base, largely from his stand-up comedy but more recently in films such as Think Like a Man, Ride Along, and About Last Night. However, the large bulk of his work relies on out-and-out hilarity, »

Kevin Hart Joins Colin Firth for The Intouchables' American Remake

1 October 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

A remake of the hit French film The Intouchables has been brewing since 2012 when Chris Tucker was in talks to take the role originated by Omar Sy and British actor Colin Firth was rumored to be attached. Since then directors like Tom Shadyac and Paul Feig have been linked to the project, but we're not sure who's supposed to get behind the camera now. However, a report from French site Allocine (via The Playlist) reports that Firth is still in the film, and comedian Kevin Hart will be taking the co-starring role. Does that mean this is going to become less of a drama and more of a straight-up comedy than the original? This would be the first film that isn't pure comedy for Hart, who hasn't really shown that he has the acting chops to take on a role like this. The original French film is funny but touching »

Q&A: ‘Intouchables’ Helmers Eric Toledano And Olivier Nakache Discuss ‘Samba’

29 September 2014 12:38 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

San Sebastian, Spain– Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache, who delivered the biggest French-language hit ever with the Omar-Sy starrer “Intouchables” ($426 million worldwide) in 2011, fired up this year’s San Sebastian fest with the European premiere of “Samba” on closing night. In the well-polished social comedy, Sy plays Samba, a hard-working Senegalese migrant whose life is turned upside down after getting caught by authorities. Pic, which is produced by Quad Films, centers around Samba’s unlikely relationship and building romance with Alice, a social worker (Charlotte Gainsbourg) who is recovering from a burn-out. Sold by Gaumont, “Samba” sparked standing ovations at both Toronto, where it world-premiered, and at San Sebastian. Kicking off the European tour to promote the movie, Toledano and Nakache took time to chat with Variety about the genesis of “Samba,” what the film means to them, their collaboration with Sy and Gainsbourg, and what they look forward to in France and beyond. »

Film Review: ‘Good People’

26 September 2014 10:52 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Despite the proverbial suggestion of the title, bad things mostly happen to less-than-upstanding citizens in “Good People,” a capable crime caper that nonetheless disappoints, considering the flavorful talent involved. With off-kilter Danish genre specialist Henrik Ruben Genz (“Terribly Happy”) making his English-language debut from a script by “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead” writer Kelly Masterson, it’d be reasonable to expect a few more blackened twists in the tale of a hard-up Yank couple (James Franco and Kate Hudson) dragged into the Cockney underworld after pocketing a stash of dirty money from their deceased tenant. Both stars are in agreeable if uncharacteristically muted form, doing little to distinguish Genz’s pic from any amount of formula-following filler in the same B-movie ballpark; commercially, “VOD People” is the more apt moniker for this multi-platform release.

If nothing else, “Good People” serves as a relatively novel entry in Franco’s »

Extended Rogue Cut of X-Men: Days of Future Past set for summer 2015

26 September 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We knew it was coming, but now we have an idea of when we can expect the extended cut of X-Men: Days of Future Past to arrive, with writer-producer Simon Kinberg announcing that the ‘Rogue Cut’ will be released in the first half of 2015, with summer looking most likely. The extended edition will include more than 10 minutes of additional footage, including Rogue’s (Anna Paquin) sequences, as well as those featuring other characters.

“It’s a big chunk, a substantial part of the movie,” said Kinberg during the official announcement. “We want to give (fans) the fullest picture of the film — behind the camera, and in front of it with the Rogue Cut and provide more of the process we went through” to make the film.”

‘Good People’ is a solid, well-made thriller

25 September 2014 1:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Good People

Written for the screen by Kelly Masterson

Directed by Henrik Ruben Genz

USA, 2014

Tom and Anna Wright (James Franco and Kate Hudson) are a financially-struggling American couple giving UK life a try. The money from a robbery-gone-wrong ends up in their basement and they make the ill-fated decision to hold onto it, unaware that the cash will bring two separate criminal gangs and a worn police detective charging into their lives.

Good People plays out like a combination of A Simple Plan and Shallow Grave, though it has neither the cold irony of the former nor the sweaty shiftiness of the latter. Still, director Henrik Ruben Genz’s stateside debut is a capable thriller with sequences of strong suspense.

The opening scene may in fact be the strongest. Jack Witkowski (Sam Spruell) and crew prepare to rob a stash of heroin from drug importer Khan (Omar Sy). Genz »
