Michelle MacLaren Met With Lucasfilm For Second Star Wars Spinoff

12 June 2015 9:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For a time, Michelle MacLaren was attached to Warner Brothers’ upcoming Wonder Woman film, but left the project due to creative differences. Now, it’s being reported that the Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones director may have moved on to greener pastures (that grow in a galaxy far, far away).

According to TheWrap’s Jeff Sneider, MacLaren has met with Lucasfilm about the second Star Wars Anthology spinoff, which is expected to focus on the rivalry between a young Han Solo and Boba Fett. Chronicle and Fantastic Four helmer Josh Trank was originally attached to the film, but recently abandoned the project. When last we heard, Disney was courting either Jon Favreau or Matthew Vaughn to take the reins, but MacLaren’s name is an interesting and exciting addition to the equation.

Victor Frankenstein Theatrical Release Date Changed to November 25th

10 June 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Starring James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe, Victor Frankenstein was originally scheduled to hit theaters in candy corn season, but the big screen adaptation of Mary Shelley's 1818 novel will now come out when pumpkin pie and turkey are on the menu.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, 20th Century Fox has moved the theatrical release of Victor Frankenstein from Friday, October 2nd to Wednesday, November 25th—the day before Thanksgiving.

20th Century Fox swapped Victor Frankenstein with Ridley Scott's The Martian on the calendar, placing the Matt Damon-starring sci-fi film in the October 2nd slot to put some distance between the ambitious project and the crammed cinematic scene of Thanksgiving week (Creed, The Good Dinosaur, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 are all slated to hit the big screen between November 20th – 25th).

Directed by Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin) from a script written by Max Landis (Chronicle), Victor Frankenstein stars McAvoy, »

Ten filmmakers whose skills would be well-suited to television

10 June 2015 8:39 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Rian Johnson

The migration of filmmakers from the big screen to the small one is not a new phenomenon, but another team was formally inducted this weekend, with the Wachowskis’ Netflix series Sense8 making its debut. The duo join the ranks of others such as Steven Soderbergh, and they are far from the last ones, as Steve McQueen, Baz Luhrmann, and Amy Seimetz are among those who are poised to make the creative leap as well. There are some filmmakers, however, who have displayed a set of talents that make the idea of them moving to television an exciting one. Here are ten filmmakers who would be a great fit on the small screen in charge of a tv show.

1) Alex Garland

With a writing filmography that includes 28 Days Later, Sunshine, Never Let Me Go, and Dredd, Alex Garland has proven that, no matter the genre, he is capable of telling a compelling story. »

The Blunt Reason Jurassic World's Colin Trevorrow Won't Do A Star Wars Movie

8 June 2015 7:27 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Lucasfilm is cultivating some impressive up-and-coming names around their Star Wars films. Aside from J.J. Abrams directing Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rian Johnson of Looper will direct Episodes 8 and maybe 9, while Godzilla's Gareth Edwards is helming the anthology film, Rogue One. Josh Trank of Chronicle and Fantastic Four was on board for the second anthology, but dropped out over behind-the-scenes drama. Colin Trevorrow is another name that has ben linked to the resurrected franchise, but according to the Jurassic World helmer, he won't be tackling the galaxy far, far away any time soon.  When the filmmaker recently stated that he will not be returning to direct the sequel to his dino extravaganza, people began to wonder whether that meant he was being considered for another big blockbuster event (i.e. Star Wars). Speaking with MTV, Trevorrow put an end to those rumors, saying: I feel like, at »

Michael B Jordan stars in the clip as Johnny Storm, and is shown transforming into the Human Torch before throwing a fireball and flying off.

The actor recently hit back at critics of his casting as the comic book character, saying: "It used to bother me, but it doesn't anymore.

"I can see everybody's perspective, and I know I can't ask the audience to forget 50 years of comic books. But the world is a little more diverse in 2015 than when the Fantastic Four comic first came out in 1961."

Josh Trank Opens Up about 'Fantastic Four' Rumors & Leaving 'Star Wars'

5 June 2015 2:19 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

We all know the upcoming press tour for Fantastic Four is going to be interesting. The film's director, Josh Trank (Chronicle), has been the source of a lot of controversy as of late. Starting with the announcement of the cast of Fantastic Four, featuring an African-american Johnny Storm, to the sudden, rumor-filled departure from an upcoming Star Wars Anthology film, Trank is probably ready to put this all behind him. In an interview posted by the La Times, Trank finally opens up about his departure from the Star Wars Anthology film, "I knew that this was going to be questioned and it was going to come under skepticism as to why I left Star Wars. And it was hard. It was the hardest decision I've ever had to make in my life." The "skepticism" is in reference to the litany of rumors surrounding his departure.

Josh Trank Says He Wasn't Fired From Star Wars Spin-Off

5 June 2015 4:11 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Despite being on board to direct one of the "Star Wars" films, director Josh Trank was absent from this year's Star Wars Celebration. It was later revealed that Trank was fired from the movie, with several insiders stating that Disney no longer trusted him after finding out that producers on Trank's "Fantastic Four" and "Chronicle" often complained about his behavior and lack of leadership. Now, in a new interview with La Times, Trank shared his side of what happened. "I knew that this was going to be questioned and it was going to come under skepticism as to why I left 'Star Wars,'" he said. "And it was hard. It was the hardest decision I've ever had to make in my life. I want to do something original after ['Fantastic Four'], because I've been living under public scrutiny, as you've seen, for the last four years of my life and »

Josh Trank Explains His Decision to Leave ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff

4 June 2015 6:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Josh Trank has cited the pressures of directing the “Star Wars” spinoff, following four years of work on “Fantastic Four,” as the key reason for dropping out of the Disney-Lucasfilm project a month ago.

In his first public interview since the May 1 announcement, Trank told the Los Angeles Times that he wants to do a lower profile project rather than a “Star Wars” movie after working on Fox’s “Fantastic Four.”

“I want to do something original after this because I’ve been living under public scrutiny, as you’ve seen, for the last four years of my life,” he told the newspaper. “And it’s not healthy for me right now in my life. I want to do something that’s below the radar.”

Trank’s statement on May 1 said only that he made a “personal decision to move forward on a different path. I’ve put a tremendous amount of thought into this, »

Josh Trank Explains Why He Left Star Wars; Denies Rumors of Fantastic Four Troubles

4 June 2015 5:59 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It's been a rough month for Josh Trank. When the Chronicle and Fantastic Four director was a no-show for his planned Star Wars Celebration appearance, rumors immediately began circulating that his Star Wars anthology film was doomed. It was only a matter of weeks before fan suspicion was confirmed and Trank dropped off the project. Following his departure, the rumor mill spun into overdrive, speculating that there were troubles during the production of Fantastic Four spanning from erratic, indecisive behavior from Trank to costly rental property damages from his dogs. Unconfirmed reports claimed that this behavior led Simon Kinberg to doubt Trank's abilities as a director, causing a rift in their relationship. [caption id="attachment_391557" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via 20th Century Fox[/caption] In an interview with La Times, Trank finally addressed the rumors for the first time, “None of those facts were true - and any of the facts that were true were spun »

Josh Trank Reveals Why He Really Left Star Wars; Addresses Fantastic Four Bts Rumors

4 June 2015 3:51 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When Josh Trank didn't show up at this year's Star Wars Celebration, he and Disney told everyone that he had the flu. The truth was that the Chronicle helmer was no longer attached to direct their second Star Wars Anthology movie, and various trades would later claim that he was fired for strange behaviour on set, property damage, and a falling out with writer and producer Simon Kinberg. Calling his departure "the hardest decision I've ever had to make in my life," Trank told Hero Complex the following in an interview last week about those reports. "None of those facts were true – and any of the facts that were true were spun in such a maliciously wrong way. If you ask anybody by name who I’ve worked with, from Simon to [producer] Hutch [Parker] or my crew or anybody else, they’d be like, ‘We’ve been working really hard on »

Star Wars: director Josh Trank on why he quit

4 June 2015 3:26 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Fantastic Four's Josh Trank walked away from 2018's Star Wars: Anthology movie. And here's the real reason why.

Chronicle and Fanastic Four reboot director Josh Trank was announced last year as the director of the second planned Star Wars Anthology movie, due in 2018. Yet earlier this year, he departed the project, and a rumour soon sprung up that he'd actually been fired from the film. "At first I was like, ‘I’m just not going to say anything because it will blow over'", Trank told Hero Complex. "But I was shocked – it just hasn’t blown over. People get so excited to raise their pitchforks".

So what actually happened?

"It was the hardest decision I've ever had to make in my life", Trank said, of quitting Star Wars. To the allegation that he was fired, and that he had behaved erratically on the set of Fantastic Four, Trank »

Fantastic Four reboot: "I knew it was going to get ugly"

3 June 2015 10:57 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Director Josh Trank admits that he understands the criticism that's been aimed at the Fantastic Four reboot...

We're two months and two days away now from the release of Fox's Fantastic Four reboot, which is being directed by Chronicle helmer Josh Trank. The new film has caused 'intense conversation' pretty much from day one, with reports of alterations to the source material, and debate over the film's casting. In particular, Michael B Jordan as Johnny Storm and Jamie Bell as The Thing.

Chatting to Hero Complex, Trank admitted that "I knew it was going to get ugly", adding that "I get it. I have a lot of friends who are older than me who are comic fans, and it's really hard for them to be on board with a change like that. Fantastic Four has been theirs for longer than I've been alive. It hasn't been mine".

Josh Trank And Simon Kinberg Address Fantastic Four Controversy, Casting, And More

3 June 2015 1:18 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In a recent interview with the Hero Complex Magazine for the La Times, Josh Trank revealed that he "knew it was going to get ugly" when the decision was made to make some major changes to the source material for his upcoming reboot of the Fantastic Four. However, it sounds like the Chronicle director actually sympathises with fans! "I get it. I have a lot of friends who are older than me who are comic fans and it's really hard for them to be on board with a change like that. 'Fantastic Four' has been theirs for longer than I've been alive. It hasn't been mine." That's a valid point, but it's not really just older fans who aren't happy with the changes being made! Regardless, Trank hopes that they will at least approach the movie with an open mind this August. "It only speaks to the greatness of any »

New 'Star Wars' Anthology Rumors Include Favreau, Vaughn, Solo, Obi-Wan & Yoda

3 June 2015 7:35 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It seems the closer we get to the release of the first movie in the new era of Star Wars films, the more begins to float downstream. Whether it's the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, its sequels or one of the Star Wars: Anthology films (stories that take place within the Star Wars universe), there is always some measure of speculation to discuss. To that point, the website Schmoes Know has dropped a few fascinating rumors about two of the Anthology titles and other potential projects. A second film in the Anthology series for 2018 has previously been reported to focus in on villainous bounty hunter Boba Fett. Chronicle director Josh Trank had been attached to direct, but left the role last month. Schmoes Know provides speculation for both the plot of the upcoming film and who might fill the empty position. According to their source, »
