Dead Within Gets Us Distribution

25 June 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

If you were holed up in a cabin with your loved one during the apocalypse, what horrors would you find outside your long unopened door? That’s the question at the heart of writer/director Ben Wagner’s latest film, Dead Within, which Millennium Entertainment recently picked up.

A release date has not yet been set for this psychological horror film, but we’ll let Daily Dead readers know when one is determined. To get real results out of his actors, Ben Wagner filmed the movie in the tradition of The Blair Witch Project, placing stars Amy Cale Peterson and Dean Chekvala (both of whom helped write the script) in a real locked cabin wherein they had no idea what horror the filmmakers would throw at them. In addition to the film, a prequel comic illustrated by artist Alfonso Ruiz will soon be available, perhaps expanding on the apocalyptic events »

Blu-ray, DVD Release: Bad Words

15 May 2014 3:51 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: July 8, 2014

Price: DVD $29.98, Blu-ray/DVD Combo $34.98

Studio: Universal Studios Home Entertainment

Jason Bateman (The Switch) plays a foul-mouthed spelling wonder in  omedy movie Bad Words.

Bateman’s Guy Trilby is on a mission and doesn’t care who is hurt. After finding a loophole in the rules of the national spelling bee The Golden Quill, Trilby competes despite being 30 years older than the other average contestant. Contest officials and parents are outraged.

But one contestant, 10-year-old Chaitanya (Rohan Chand, Lone Survivor) gives Trilby a run for his money and they start to influence each other, for better or worse.

Bad Words got decent reviews from critics, better from moviegoers, earning 64% approval from critics and 70% from moviegoers, according to Rotten Tomatoes. Still, turnout for the film in theaters was on the lower side for a Jason Bateman movie: Bad Words grossed only $7.7 million, compared to $134 million for »

‘Star Trek 3′: Roberto Orci is Set as Director

14 May 2014 6:48 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci have written for so many blockbuster franchises (Transformers, Star Trek) and big genre TV shows (Alias, Fringe) by this point, it was inevitable that the pair would eventually want to make the jump to directing some of these splashy tentpoles themselves. The dynamic duo is separating professionally, in order to better pursue such directing opportunities; Kurtzman is currently attached to helm the Spider-Man spinoff film Venom, while Orci is reported to have recently entered official talks for him to call the shots on the next Star Trek movie installment.

While Kurtzman has a feature-length film (People Like Us) and a couple TV episodes under his belt as director, Orci is ...

Roberto Orci wants to direct the next Star Trek film

22 April 2014 11:27 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News Simon Brew 23 Apr 2014 - 07:27

With Alex Kurtzman set to direct Venom, Roberto Orci apparently has his eyes on succeeding Jj Abrams as Star Trek director...

News broke late yesterday that long-time writing partners Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are going their separate ways. The pair have been a creative partnership for some time, writing across projects such as Jj Abrams' Star Trek reboots, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Transformers, the Sleepy Hollow TV show and Cowboys & Aliens.

Towards the end of last year, it was revealed that Alex Kurtzman is the man that Sony wants to direct one of its Spider-Man spin-off movies, Venom. Kurtzman is also writing the script for the film, which will be his second feature directorial effort after People Like Us.

Whilst Kurtzman and Orci will continue to work together on their television projects, Variety reports that their split on feature films is amicable. »

Roberto Orci hoping to replace J.J. Abrams as Star Trek 3 director

22 April 2014 11:09 PM, PDT | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman have been Hollywood’s go-to writing partnership for a raft of major blockbuster pictures over the past decade or so, but the pair are now parting ways to pursue directorial careers. With Kurtzman already having directed 2012’s People Like Us, Orci is now keen to make Star Trek 3 his directorial debut, having worked with Kurtzman on the scripts for the previous two films.

Roberto Orci Wants To Direct Star Trek 3

22 April 2014 7:22 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Photo: Art StreiberAfter writing as a unit for more than a decade and turning into something of a production company powerhouse/hive mind, Star Trek scribes Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci have decided to call it quits. No, snark fans, they’re not quitting the biz but merely focusing on separate film projects, which in Kurtzman’s case means negotiating to direct Amazing Spider-spin-off Venom and in Orci’s, lobbying to sit in the big chair for Star Trek 3.The directorial news is not that surprising. Kurtzman, after all, already has one credit under his belt with indie People Like Us and both have worked on more than enough huge movies to learn a thing or two. But while we can see Sony handing the lower-risk Venom on to a relative newcomer in the director’s chair, it might be a harder sell for Paramount to pull a Starfleet »

Roberto Orci wants to direct Star Trek 3

22 April 2014 3:09 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Whether or not you like their stuff, you can’t deny the success of Roberto Orci and his writing partner Alex Kurtzman. They are responsible for the likes of the first two Transformers movies, Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, Mission Impossible III and most recently The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Combined; their works have pulled in billions of dollars. And now, the writing duo have decided to go their separate ways. Both writers are making the shift into directing, and while Kurtzman has already one movie in his resume, (he directed People Like Us) Orci is lobbying hard to get his ass on the directors chair for Star Trek 3. With J.J. Abrams in a galaxy far, far away and Joe Cornish deciding to do something else instead of getting involved in the middle of a franchise, Orci isn’t necessarily a sure thing. While Abrams has given his blessing, »

Kurtzman And Orci Splitting Up For Future Movies; Orci Looking To Direct Star Trek 3

22 April 2014 12:38 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When it comes to blockbuster filmmaking, writer/producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci have seemingly always come together as a package deal. First working together in the late 1990s as writers on the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, they took their act to the big screen in 2005 with Michael Bay's The Island and have been Hollywood mainstays for big-budget summer action ever since. But now it appears that their partnership in features is coming to an end. Variety is reporting news that Kurtzman and Orci are "parting amicably" and will be moving forward in different directions with their future feature efforts. The cause for the split is that both filmmakers want to start pursuing different directing opportunities. Kurtzman has already made his directorial debut, having helmed the family drama People Like Us, and he is currently attached to make the Amazing Spider-Man spin-off movie Venom. Orci, meanwhile, is »

Roberto Orci Wants To Direct Star Trek 3

22 April 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even if you’re not immediately familiar with the writing duo of Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman by name, you’ve likely seen some of their work. They’ve been behind the scripts for films like Transformers, Star Trek, Mission: Impossible III, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and more. Now, it seems as if they’re hoping to take their careers in a different direction as according to Variety, they will be parting ways in order to pursue separate directorial ventures.

Kurtzman has already stepped behind the camera once before, for People Like Us, and is also set to helm Venom for Sony. Orci, however, has not had the chance to direct yet. The film that he’s eyeing for his directorial debut, though, is none other than Star Trek 3.

Paramount has been looking for someone to replace J.J. Abrams on the next Star Trek sequel for a while now, »

Roberto Orci Lobbying to Direct Star Trek 3 as Film Partnership with Alex Kurtzman Ends

22 April 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

For better or worse, the writing duo of Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman has been responsible for some of the biggest franchise hits of the past decade.  Orci and Kurtzman penned the scripts for the first two Transformers films, Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, Mission: Impossible III, and they were recently brought into the Spider-Man franchise as the scribes behind The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 3.  However, it appears that the two have decided to part ways in the feature world as they have their eyes on making the move to director—separately. Kurtzman already has one feature under his belt as director, the 2012 dramedy People Like Us, but Orci is thinking big for his directorial debut as he is currently vying to take over for J.J. Abrams on Star Trek 3.  More after the jump. Variety reports that Orci and Kurtzman are parting ways in the film world, »

Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci Splitting Up on Bigscreen (Exclusive)

22 April 2014 10:22 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Longtime writing and producing partners Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are parting ways in their filmmaking endeavors after nearly a decade together. The pair have worked on some of Hollywood’s biggest franchise films including “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ two “Transformers” movies, “Mission Impossible III” and “Star Trek Into Darkness.” They also collaborated on indie titles such as “Now You See Me” and “People Like Us,” which Kurtzman also directed.

Kurtzman and Orci–who will remain in business together on the TV front–are parting amicably, according to sources, and the split will allow them to pursue separate feature careers as directors. The two still have more than a dozen projects in development, including the next two “Spider-Man” films. It is unclear how those projects will be handled or divided between the two men. Their production company, K/O Paper Products, which they launched in 2009, will most likely be reconfigured »

Roberto Orci Wants to Direct the Next Star Trek Film

22 April 2014 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Although Attack the Block helmer Joe Cornish's name has been said to be in the running for the gig, Variety today reports that writer/producer Roberto Orci is after the director's chair on the upcoming thirteenth Star Trek feature film. The trade adds that Orci has the full support of Bad Robot, but that Paramount Pictures isn't necessarily sold on someone without big screen directing experience. Orci is nevertheless splitting creatively from his former writing and producing partner Alex Kurtzman, who himself is slated to helm Sony Pictures' Venom . Kurtzman, who will continue to produce but not write along Orci, previously directed the indie drama People Like Us , which Orci co-scripted. There's no announced timeframe for the next Star Trek film as of yet, but »

Chris Pine To Star In The Line From Director David Gordon Green

29 January 2014 7:48 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Still not really sure what to make of Chris Pine, eh? Guess he.s a leading man, even though audiences don.t think so: they stayed away from Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, and they didn.t really thrill to Pine in stuff like Unstoppable (strictly a Denzel vehicle) or his attempt to be like a real hu-mon in People Like Us. But hell, maybe he.s an action star. Maybe his Star Trek legacy suggests he should be blasting stuff with guns, lazers, or some combination of the two. Pine is set to star in The Line, according to THR. Pine would play a patrol agent with a family life in shambles as he attempts to pick up the pieces. However, a raid on a cartel places him in the care of a newly orphaned ten year old boy, who is now a target on both sides. So it.s »

Watch: Elizabeth Banks Has Hellish One Night Stand in 'Walk of Shame'

15 January 2014 8:13 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

While Elizabeth Banks has mostly been relegated to meaty supporting roles in films like People Like Us, The Hunger Games, The Next Three Days and Role Models, this time she's taking the lead on the comedy Walk of Shame. It's a classic race against time as Banks plays a local news reporter who has the sudden opportunity to become a network news anchor. The only problem is after her car is towed following a one night stand (with James Marsden), she has no phone, ID or money, and finds herself stranded and desperate to make it to the interview. This trailer reminds me of that movie Trojan War from 1997 with "Boy Meets World" star Will Friedle looking everywhere for a condom. And that's not a compliment. Watch! Here's the first trailer for Steven Brill's Walk of Shame, originally from Yahoo: Walk of Shame is written and directed by Steven Brill (Mr. Deeds, »
