Disney To Co-Finance Spielberg’s The Bfg; Rebecca Hall, Penelope Wilton And More Join Cast

13 April 2015 1:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After completing work on his cold war thriller Bridge Of Spies with long-time collaborator Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg has turned his eye to something a little more family-friendly: The Bfg. The Roald Dahl adaptation has been on the director’s radar for years, and has at last commenced principal photography in Vancouver, B.C. with a starry cast all poised to bring the much-loved story to the big screen.

And if that prospect hasn’t tantalized your tastebuds, then brace yourself for this latest development. The classic tale will now go down in history as Spielberg’s first proper Disney movie. The mouse house has joined forces with Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment to co-produce and co-finance the flick, with Disney set to distribute internationally.

Here’s what the legendary filmmaker had to say on the union:

The series will air on ITV Encore and is based on the books by novelist Phil Rickman. Stephen Volk (The Awakening) will write the screenplay for the adaptation.

Joel Edgerton gets behind the directing chair for paranoid thriller, ‘The Gift’

1 April 2015 4:46 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Simon says….look out for Joel Edgerton and his goatee.

The first trailer for The Gift was released on Wednesday, which marks the directorial debut of The Great Gatsby and Exodus star Joel Edgerton. The paranoid thriller also stars Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall.

Edgerton has been a solid actor for some time now with bit parts in multiple movies, both big and small, and this film looks like it has a lot going for it. From the trailer, it seems to be in the same vein as popular horror thrillers such as Insidious (and actually shares a producer with that movie) and could possibly work with a mass audience. Edgerton has only directed short films up to this point, but The Gift could be a step into bigger movies.

The cast is great with Bateman diving into drama, which he has been doing recently with Disconnect and This Is Where I Leave You, »

New Clip & Photos from The Hallow

29 January 2015 10:01 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With their ancient roots, shadowy confines, and stealthy residents, forests can be places of magical wonder and dark foreboding. The woodland in Corin Hardy’s (who is set to direct The Crow reboot) The Hallow is definitely the latter, and we have a clip and photos from the horror film that recently premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

The Hallow (Sundance Midnight World Premiere)

Director: Corin Hardy

Starring: Joseph Mawle, Bojana Novakovic

Synopsis: When a London-based conservationist is sent to Ireland with his wife and infant child to survey an area of forest believed to be hallowed ground by superstitious locals, his actions unwittingly disturb a horde of demonic creatures who prey upon the lost. Alone and deep within the darkness of the remote wilderness, he must now fight back to protect his family against the ancient forces’ relentless attacks.

Starring Joseph Mawle (The Awakening, Game of Thrones) and Bojana Novakovic (Devil, »
