Relativity Fires Co-President of Production Adam Fields for Breach of Contract

9 September 2016 4:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Troubled studio Relativity Media has fired Adam Fields from his post as co-president of production for alleged breach of contract after four months on the job.

Fields, who could not be reached for comment, was given a letter of termination on Sept. 8.

Relativity announced it had hired Fields on April 27, two weeks after the mini-studio emerged from bankruptcy protection. Prior to then, Fields had served as a consultant at Sony Pictures and had worked with Relativity on its movies “Limitless,” “Safe Haven,” and “21 & Over.”

Fields was assigned oversight of business affairs, physical production, and post-production, reporting to Relativity chairman Ryan Kavanaugh. Kevin Spacey’s producing partner Dana Brunetti was officially named co-president of production in March with oversight over the creative operations as Spacey opted out of previously announced plans to assume the post.

Fields’ producing and executive producing credits include “Donnie Darko,” “Sixteen Candles,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “The Breakfast Club, »

News at the premiere of his new movie and opened up about his accidental encounter on the first day of production. "The truth is the first day, the first shot of the movie, I was rolling a joint.

The Safe Haven star eventually recovered and continued his filming, but couldn't help but laugh at recalling the accidental incident.

Marilyn Manson is best known as the frontman of the Marilyn Manson band, whose music garnered much controversy from politicians and the public for their nihilistic lyrics, graphic imagery, and provocative statements. Manson got tied up in the aftermath of the deadly Columbine shooting when he was blamed by politicians and the media for inciting the violence with his music. Manson has appeared in many films including David Lynch’s “Lost Highway,” Michael Moore’s “Bowling For Columbine,” in which he discussed the media’s interest in scapegoating rather than focusing on broader societal issues, and a recurring role on FX’s “Sons of Anarchy.”

Mark Boone Junior is best known for his role on “Sons of Anarchy,” along with his performances in Christopher Nolan’s “Memento” and “Batman Begins,” Terrence Malick’s “The Thin Red Line,” and David Fincher’s “Seven.” He will soon appear in Nate Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation,” about Nat Turner, the leader of a slave rebellion in Southampton County, Virginia in 1831.

Let Me Make You a Martyr” will premiere at Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal next month. Manson will be in attendance.

The Choice (2016) – The Review

4 February 2016 3:28 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

2016 is five weeks old, so the new model is rolling off the assembly line. You might think I’m referring to an automobile company like Ford or Lincoln. Well, we are dealing with a brand name, one associated with popular novels instead of cars. Stephen King is still king of the horror/suspense novels, John Grisham has the legal thrillers, and Nicholas Sparks is best known for the swoony, sweeping romance paperbacks that fill the spinner racks at airport gift shops and often protrude from the tops of canvas beach bags. His best sellers quickly grabbed the attention of the movie studios, and almost a dozen have been translated to the big screen (easy to see why since they don’t require costly CGI action set pieces or big name superstars since Sparks is the name that draws ’em in). Back to the assembly line reference, there’s been a »

Author Nicholas Sparks Thinks ‘The Choice’ Will ‘Speak to an Authenticity That People Will Recognize’

2 February 2016 2:43 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The author of nearly 20 romance novels, Nicholas Sparks has contributed to the cinematic adaptations of his written works since the release of “A Message in a Bottle” in 1999.

“I’ve always been involved in the script oversight, notes, casting and selection of the director,” Sparks told Variety on Monday at the Los Angeles premiere of Lionsgate’s “The Choice” — which marks the 11th Nicholas Sparks adaptation. “Film is always a very collaborative process. You’ve got a lot of voices — studio voices, producers’ voices, directors’ voices, casts’ voice. I was always one of those voices,” said Sparks, who also foresees being involved in any future adaptations of his novels.

As his dynamic love stories continued to be developed into films, the bestselling author’s involvement in the productions increased; a progression he described as “a natural evolution.” Sparks was credited as a producer for “Safe Haven” (2013), “The Best of Me »

Relativity’s Emergence From Chapter 11 May Come Down to a Single Objection

28 January 2016 12:03 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The votes are in, and Ryan Kavanaugh's plan for the reorganization of Relativity Media has commanded a huge amount of "accept" votes from creditors. But don't count on the studio behind such films as Immortals, Limitless and The Fighter emerging from Chapter 11 bankruptcy just yet. Sure, some of Kavanaugh's recent antagonists including Cortland Capital and Manchester Securities have voted to accept the plan, as has the Directors Guild of America and the Screen Actors Guild, along with more than 85 percent of unsecured creditors. There are certainly notable objectors, too, including Nicholas Sparks Productions (which co-produced Relativity’s Safe Haven)

Sundance: Sandy Hook Documentary ‘Newtown’ Unites 17 Composers for Emotional Score

20 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Newtown,” which debuts this weekend at Sundance, has what may be the most ambitious score of any movie in the festival: 17 different composers contributed music, all because they were moved by the subject matter.

Newtown” deals with the aftermath of the December 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, where 20 first-graders and six staffers were killed in the second-deadliest mass shooting by a gunman in U.S. history.

Composer Fil Eisler (“Revenge,” “Empire”), Czech-born but now an American citizen with a 4-year-old daughter, remembers a conversation with producer Maria Cuomo Cole in which he expressed his outrage at yet another massacre. (“I’m scared of her growing up in this country,” he said.) Then Cole told him she was working on a film about Sandy Hook.

“The floor just fell out from under me,” Eisler recalls. “I didn’t ever want to see that film, much less score it.” But the more he thought about it, »
