James Patterson's Civil Rights Era Murder Mystery 'The Thomas Berryman Number' to Be Adapted as a TV Series

13 October 2014 2:08 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Having read 4 of his novels, I can't call myself a fan of author James Patterson's novels. There's a reason why they are sometimes labeled as "Airport novels," because they are typically fast-paced, superficially engaging and cliched, while not being particularly profound, nor, dare I say, well-written - at least in Patterson's case. Of course that's just my opinion. You might feel differently. So I'm not particularly moved by this news of another screen adaptation of one of his works, especially after previous adaptations really underwhelmed - most recently, Tyler Perry's awful attempt at bringing Alex Cross to the big screen - a wasted opportunity. That said, I'm sure if this »

8 October 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bryan Cranston is attached to star in the first of Good Films’ slate of seven projects, “The Infiltrator.” Brad Furman (“The Lincoln Lawyer”) will direct.

Produced by Good Films’ founder, Miriam Segal, principal photography is scheduled to begin January 2015 on location in London, Paris and Florida. Relativity Intl. will present the project to distributors at the American Film Market.

Adapted for the screen by Ellen Brown Furman, “The Infiltrator” is an investigative-thriller based on author Robert Mazur’s autobiography of the same name. Cranston will play customs and excise agent Robert Mazur, and his undercover alias, Bob Musella. Cranston’s involvement in the film stems from a relationship that he developed with the director while shooting “The Lincoln Lawyer.”

Segal said the film “demands a dynamic and complex leading man.” Camela Galano, president, Relativity Intl. added the pic will deliver “edge-of-your-seat thrills.”

Tyler Perry Didn't Know Anything About David Fincher Before Appearing in Gone Girl

27 August 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Tyler Perry is appearing in David Fincher’s upcoming adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s mega bestselling novel Gone Girl, and he recently spoke to Vulture about the role and said maybe the weirdest thing that ever happened. Honestly, it’s bizarre. But before we get to that, let’s go over some regular things he said.

Fincher offered him the role after seeing him in Alex Cross. The last act is different than the book's twist. He and Ben Affleck frequently led the cast and crew in sing-alongs. Affleck has a giant head. Literally. 

“Would you believe that his head and my head are the same size? He's got the biggest head I've ever seen on a person. I mean, it's just ... My head is proportionate to my body. His is not. He's got a big head. And he knows it. He knows it. [Laughs.]”

Now we’re getting to the weird part. »

Tyler Perry Would Have Turned Down Gone Girl If He Knew Who David Fincher Was

27 August 2014 9:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Apparently, Tyler Perry didn’t even know who David Fincher was when he signed on to Gone Girl, the director’s upcoming adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s hit novel of the same name. In a recent interview, Perry revealed that if he had been familiar with who Fincher was, he probably wouldn’t have joined the film.

“I probably would have walked away from it. If I had known who David Fincher was, and his body of work, or if I’d known the book was so popular, I would have said, No,” Perry said. “And my agent knew that! He didn’t tell me until after I signed on!”

Given that he likes to keep a low profile, the actor says he wouldn’t have signed on for Gone Girl if he had known who Fincher was and if he had any idea of how beloved the property was. »

Tyler Perry Goes from Not Knowing Who David Fincher is to Praising Him and 'Gone Girl'

27 August 2014 9:03 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

On Monday we learned from an interview with New York Magazine (via Yahoo) that before signing on to star in Gone Girl for director David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club, The Social Network), Academy member, director, actor, screenwriter and producer Tyler Perry had never heard of Fincher, wasn't familiar with his work and had no idea about the popularity of Gillian Flynn's novel from which the film is based. Perry has now said pretty much the same thing in a new interview with Vulture, though this time with a little bit of praise added to the quote. "I had no sense of how big the book was," Perry said. "If I had, I probably would have walked away from it. If I had known ... This is the honest-to-God's truth. If I had known who David Fincher was, and his body of work ... If I had known that the book was so popular, »

Tyler Perry Didn't Know David Fincher's Films Or What 'Gone Girl' Was When He Signed Up For The Movie

25 August 2014 11:55 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's Tyler Perry's world and Tyler Perry is living in it, according to Tyler Perry. The writer/director/actor/producer/Madea, rarely lends his talents to projects that don't involve his creative hand somewhere in the mix, and when he does, his choices range randomly from the already forgotten thriller "Alex Cross" to the blockbuster "Star Trek." But, again according to Perry, he doesn't like to sign up for high profile projects, so why "Gone Girl"? Because he had no idea who David Fincher was. “I probably would have walked away from it. If I had known who David Fincher was, and his body of work, or if I’d known the book was so popular, I would have said, No,” Perry told Yahoo. “And my agent knew that! He didn’t tell me until after I signed on!” In fairness to Perry, a thriller like Gillian Flynn's »

Fast And Furious On Water, Starring Tom Cruise?

7 August 2014 9:09 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It takes a lot of guts to say, "We just did the last, indistinguishable Underworld sequel, maybe one of the biggest stars in the world wants to work with us!" But that's just what's happening with Millennium Films and directors Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein. The duo are behind South China Sea, a pretty bombastic-sounding action film, and their sights are set high on who they want to lead the project. Someone put their big boy pants on today! Deadline reports that an offer is out to Tom Cruise to star in South China Sea. Written by Kerry Williamson (Alex Cross) with a re-write by Michael Stokes (The Marsh), the action thriller has an absolutely classic set-up. The story follows a tough-as-nails female police lieutenant who must free her nemesis, a legendary American pirate, from custody. Not only is he the only one who can take down a team of »

CBS Plans "Zoo" Event Series For Summer 2015

1 July 2014 6:09 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

CBS has ordered a thirteen episode straight-to-series TV adaptation of James Patterson's 2012 thriller novel "Zoo" for 2015.

A departure for Patterson who made his name penning the Alex Cross novel series, the global thriller deals with a wave of violent animal attacks against humans across the planet.

As the assaults become more cunning, coordinated and ferocious, a young renegade biologist is thrust into the race to unlock the pandemic's mystery before humans become the endangered species.

Jeff Pinkner ("Fringe"), Andre Nemec ("Star-Crossed"), Josh Appelbaum and Scott Rosenberg ("Life on Mars") will co-write the script and will executive produce alongside James Mangold ("The Wolverine"), Cathy Konrad ("Girl, Interrupted"), Patterson, Bill Robinson, Leopoldo Gout and Steve Bowen.

The series will premiere next summer, becoming an event series much like the returning "Under the Dome" and the upcoming "Extant" are this Summer for the network.
