Mark Boal sues Us government over Bowe Bergdahl tapes

22 July 2016 11:07 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Mark Boal, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of The Hurt Locker who also wrote Zero Dark Thirty, is suing Barack Obama and the Us government over a threat to seize his taped interviews with Bowe Bergdahl.

The accused Army deserter and prisoner of war is facing a general court-martial and Boal, through his lawyers, is attempting to prevent the military prosecutor in the Bergdahl case from forcing a private citizen [Boal] into military court to relinquish legally protected materials for an ongoing military trial.

Mark Boal fully supports the military justice system and believes that Bergdahl has to face the music in a fair judicial process,” said his lawyer. “But Boal is a civilian and a journalist, and under the First Amendment, he should not be hauled into a military court to divulge his unpublished and confidential materials. We are asking the federal court in Los Angeles to protect Mark Boal’s constitutional rights.”

19 July 2016 1:32 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Homeland” has always been a series focused on real-world issues. From domestic terrorism to foreign threats, the Emmy-winning Showtime drama — which landed three nominations in 2016 — has built a reputation for being politically insightful, year in and year out.

Well, they ask ’em.

Before each season gets underway, “Homeland” producers fly into Washington D.C. for an “intense” three-to-five-day information-gathering summit with CIA officials and intelligence officers who inform them of the most relevant risks to America.

More Details From Swc's "Rogue One" Panel

16 July 2016 3:06 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The presentation for "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" ended the opening day of the Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 convention last night.

While the highlight was obviously the behind-the-scenes reel screened earlier and a new poster, those in the room also got to see the next trailer which sadly isn't online yet. There was also some new information learned about the film during the Q&A and in subsequent interviews. Here's a breakdown of all the important pieces:

Director Gareth Edwards tells io9 that one key location in the film, a desert marketplace called Jedha, was shot using a combination of location shooting in Jordan and full 360 degree sets:

"We went to Jordan to film and we built this set in Pinewood that was 360 degrees so you could kind of look wherever you wanted. Normally on a set the extras are told, 'Okay on action you walk over there and on cut you stop. »

‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Will Be Shot ‘Docu-Style With A Guerrilla Filmmaking Feel’

15 July 2016 11:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“I watched ‘A New Hope’ everyday until the BMX tape wore out,” said Gareth Edwards, the latest director granted admission to the “Star Wars” universe. Today, the 2016 Star Wars Celebration kicked off in Europe with a panel of creative forces and actors from the upcoming film “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”

It seems only fitting that that little boy would one day take on the beloved universe with a new movie based on a line from the original film’s opening crawl. “Rogue One” will be the first film in the franchise universe to tackle a completely unknown story. Set in the time of Luke Skywalker’s first adventure, the panel revealed that the plot would be based around a rag tag group of rebels in a dynamic similar to “Ocean’s 11” or “Mission Impossible.”

Gun Lobby Movie Miss Sloane Set For Awards Season

15 July 2016 4:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It usually takes Hollywood two years or more to turn out theatrical movies about real events and issues, but the subject of gun legislation in the U.S has been rumbling on for so long, it’s surprising a film like Miss Sloane hasn’t arrived sooner. It will surely benefit from the currently heightened profile of the gun law debate, however, and this sharp social relevance may well have influenced the decision to set its release date for the midst of awards season this year.

Directed by Academy Award nominee John Madden (Shakespeare In Love), Miss Sloane is the debut screenplay of newcomer Jonathan Perera. It stars Jessica Chastain – who has an Oscar nomination of her own – as the titular Elizabeth Sloane, who works as a lobbyist in Washington D.C. As she seeks to follow her ambitions, she takes on the influential national gun lobby and tries to »

The Devil Wears Prada and The Underserved Story of The Successful Career Woman

12 July 2016 11:42 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The Devil Wears Prada: 10 Years LaterHow its portrayal of successful career women aged over time in an industry that seldom tackles the topic.

The Devil Wears Prada, which just turned 10 in June, did something pretty unusual we don’t often see in contemporary mainstream Hollywood films. It portrayed professional females — some, already at the top of their game and some, newly kicking off their careers — as they relate to their jobs and professional ideals. Sure, there were romantic interests and failed marriages as part of its story-line, but The Devil Wears Prada was predominantly about office-based female workforce: sitting in cubicles, running unglamorous errands and leading companies that define an entire industry. Whatever sub-plotting sprung off from Andy Sachs’ (Anne Hathaway) 11-month-long adventures as the assistant to Runway Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep) fed the main narrative: a young, fresh-out-of-college woman finding her career sea legs and establishing her professional identity.

Justice League Lands Colin Farrell in Mystery Role?

5 July 2016 9:53 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this year, Warner Bros. shot down rumors that Justice League was being delayed and Zack Snyder was being removed as director. Instead, they announced a production start on April 11 at Pinewood Studios in the U.K. In the nearly three months since production kicked off, Warner Bros. has remained relatively quiet about the movie. Though they have revealed an official synopsis, a full cast list was never announced. Perhaps it's because the ensemble is still being finalized. A new rumor sparked over the 4th of July holiday, claiming that Colin Farrell and Game of Thrones star Michiel Huisman are in talks for unspecified roles.

The news comes from a Russian Twitter user dubbed "CutTheCrapTV" who claims that both Colin Farrell and Michiel Huisman are in negotiations to join the superhero adaptation. Of course, there is no word about who they may be playing, or confirmation from the studio that »

Awards-watchers have been wondering where Mike Mills’ dramedy “20th Century Women,” starring perennial Oscar nominee Annette Bening (“American Beauty,” “The Kids Are All Right”), would land in the fall line-up.

Well, rising indie distributor A24, which is having a strong 2016, has picked up U.S. rights to the film from Annapurna’s Megan Ellison (“Her,” “Joy,” “Everybody Wants Some!!,” “Zero Dark Thirty”).

Will 'Rogue One' Feature the Standard 'Star Wars' Text Crawl Opening?

23 June 2016 7:53 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Lucasfilm is working to change things up with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Ever since it was announced that they'd be releasing these movies every year until the end of time, one of the interesting highlights has been the reveal of the Anthology films. These were standalone pictures that would be set within the Star Wars universe, though unlike the traditional Saga films, these Anthologies would not be bound by the plot of the Saga, nor would they be bound by the genre, tropes, and tone of those movies. These would be their own thing.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy talked about some of the big difference we could expect from the Anthologies.

“One of the things we’re doing with these Star Wars stories is embracing the uniqueness of the different genres, and we’re very deliberately leaning into the various styles »
