Gareth Edwards Gives His Side Of The Story Regarding Rogue One Reshoots

9 December 2016 8:11 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It's a tricky time to be Gareth Edwards. On the one hand, the director is about to have the biggest day of his life when Rogue One: A Star Wars Story arrives in theaters and dominates the world. But on the other, there's the unfortunate fact that he was essentially replaced by Tony Gilroy after the film entered post-production. We won't pretend to know exactly what went on between Edwards and Lucasfilm once they saw where he was going with the movie, but it's pretty obvious that the studio was worried enough that they tapped Tony Gilroy to not only rewrite the script, but to also direct the huge portion of the film that was re-shot.

They took Rogue One out of the Godzilla director's hands.

Rita Repulsa concept art from Max Landis’ Power Rangers pitch revealed

2 December 2016 4:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While earlier this week fans were given a brand new look at Elizabeth Banks’ Rita Repulsa in next year’s Power Rangers movie, artist Matt Frank (via Cbr) just revealed a much different interpretation of the character in his concept art from a previous version of the project.

Back in 2013, when Power Rangers was still in development, Max Landis, writer of Chronicle and Victor Frankenstein, pitched his idea for the film to Lionsgate. The studio didn’t end up moving forward with his vision, but Landis did ask Frank to draw up some concept art, which he just unveiled on his Facebook page. See the sketch below…

On his work, Frank wrote, “Max Landis approached me back in 2013 to do some concept art for #PowerRangers when he was doing a script treatment. I had other obligations at the time and could only do a quick Rita, so I pulled from »

Kathleen Kennedy Says Female Directors Can’t Come Into ‘Star Wars’ With “Essentially No Experience”

28 November 2016 6:36 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Filmmakers making the leap from smaller or independent productions to big budget blockbusters is nothing new in Hollywood. The results have always been mixed — just last year we saw both sides of the coin with “Safety Not Guaranteed” director Colin Trevorrow‘s “Jurassic World” and “Chronicle” helmer Josh Trank‘s “Fantastic Four” — but the industry has generally been open to giving directors a shot at transitioning to larger tentpole movies.

It Sounds Like Josh Trank's Planned Boba Fett Star Wars Spinoff Was Much Further Along Than We Realized

23 November 2016 4:22 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

You may recall that just before Star Wars Celebration 2015 was due to commence, Josh Trank was abruptly removed from the panel. We were told this was down to "illness", but we later discovered that the Chronicle director was actually taken off Lucasfilm's planned Boba Fett standalone movie because of his bonkers behavior while shooting Fox's Fantastic Four reboot. The tale of the uber-popular bounty hunter was pushed back, and the Han Solo movie took its original 2018 release date - but according to EW, Trank's movie was further along than anyone realized and was actually supposed to be officially announced at Celebration with a teaser reel. Apparently the Boba Fett Anthology film will still happen at some point (2020 is speculated), but how cool would it be to see that shelved footage? Maybe someday! »

Star Wars: how close were we to Josh Trank's Boba Fett film?

22 November 2016 9:17 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mike Cecchini Nov 23, 2016

New details of the Star Wars movie that Fantastic Four's Josh Trank was set to direct have come to light...

It's no secret that Disney wants to make a Boba Fett solo movie to add to their expanding universe of Star Wars Anthology films. For years, whenever the possibility of a Star Wars spinoff came up, the first name mentioned was Boba Fett, thanks to fans' unending fascination with the badass looking bounty hunter who never actually got around to doing anything of note in The Empire Strikes Back, croaked unceremoniously in Return Of The Jedi, and got a dopey origin story foisted on him in Attack of The Clones. But Boba Fett has mystique by the sandcrawler-load, and that's all that counts.

Production began this week on Netflix's crime fantasy thriller Bright, with Will Smith and Joel Edgerton spotted on the Los Angeles set in the first photos.

Walking Dead’s David Albert and Robert Kirkman teaming with John Landis’ son for An American Werewolf In London remake...

AFM: Buyers Seeking Star Sizzle Plus Quality in Independent Movies

6 November 2016 8:37 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With the 37th American Film Market at its halfway point, buyers are showing plenty of appetite for starry, mainstream fare — and less for the schlocky titles that flooded the market a decade ago.

“Quality seems to be more of a factor than in years past,” notes Afm managing director Jonathan Wolf. “We are seeing growth in titles with true commercial potential at all budget levels.”

Wolf contends that Afm, which has seen a 7% drop in sales companies to 350 this year, has evolved into a more realistic place than in 2006 and 2007. A decade ago, there were so many sellers, thanks to a glut of product and equity money, that Afm needed three floors of the Merigot Hotel to accommodate all the sales companies.

“It took the housing crisis to stop there being too many films,” Wolf said. “There’s more of a rush to quality now.”

American Film Market Opens Amid Cautious Optimism

2 November 2016 11:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Amid a brutally fast-changing environment for movies, the American Film Market opens its 37th edition Wednesday at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel.

Forecasts are for mostly sunny weather — unlike the unpredictable conditions for the independent sector for both buyers and sellers, with majors focusing on franchise tentpoles and questions surrounding traditional distribution through theaters.

“There’s a lot of uncertainty on both sides,” said Madriver’s Kim Fox, who also handles Annapurna sales. “I don’t think it’s a horrible thing; you just can’t keep doing what you used to. It’s still a thriving business and there are gems out there.”

There’s still some sizzle to Afm. On Oct. 29, Tom Hardy came on board as gangster Al Capone in “Fonzo” with “Chronicle” director Josh Trank helming from his own script. The film will be produced by Russell Ackerman and John Schoenfelder for Addictive Pictures alongside “Pulp Fiction” producer Lawrence Bender. »

Tom Hardy to Play Al Capone in Josh Trank’s ‘Fonzo’

31 October 2016 4:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The past couple of years have been pretty rough on Josh Trank. After his career got off to a spectacular start with 2012’s Chronicle, he flamed out with his sophomore effort, Fantastic Four, and seemingly did himself no favors by bad-mouthing his own movie. In between, he also picked up and then lost a Star Wars spinoff. Understandably, he’s […]

Fantastic Four director returns with Fonzo

30 October 2016 12:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tony Sokol Oct 31, 2016

Josh Trank is set to direct Tom Hardy in upcoming Al Capone feature, Fonzo...

Al Capone, aka Scarface, the Brooklyn mobster who was sent by Frankie Yale to cool his heels in Chicago, has been played by some of the best actors in Hollywood, but rarely by an actual Italian. That's not changing either with Capone's next big screeno outing, as Tom Hardy will be cigar-chomping in the upcoming film Fonzo.

Fonzo is coming from writer-director Josh Trank, who directed Chronicle and Fantastic Four. The movie will start when Capone is released from prison at the age of 47 and suffering dementia that was triggered by gonorrhea.

'Once a ruthless businessman and bootlegger who ruled Chicago with an iron fist, Alfonse Capone was the most infamous and feared gangster of American lore', reads the official synopsis. 'At the age of 47, following nearly a decade of imprisonment, dementia rots »
