Jessica Chastain Still Has Her Heart Set On Becoming A Bond Villain

6 hours ago | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Jessica Chastain is an actress who has gone from strength to strength in recent years, inhabiting a variety of roles across a wide range of genres. Some of her highlights include Oscar nominated turns in The Help and Zero Dark Thirty, and a commanding turn in Ridley Scott's critically-lauded sci-fi adventure The Martian. We'll next see her in Guillermo del Toro's gothic horror flick Crimson Peak, and it seems she's still got her eye on one role in particular. "One of my goals is to play a villain in a Bond film," Chastain told W Magazine. "People ask me if I want to be a Bond girl, and I say, ‘No, I want to be the villain.’ I’m waiting for that call!" It's a fascinating idea. The strength of a Bond movie is dependant on its villain, and she certainly has the talent and ability to pull off a memorable baddie. »

Sicario review – Emily Blunt at the sharp end in war on drugs

8 October 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Denis Villeneuve’s gruesome and intelligent white-knuckle thriller features a terrific star turn from Blunt as a determined FBI agent

When I saw Denis Villeneuve’s stomach-turningly gruesome narco thriller Sicario at Cannes this year, it struck me he had pinched Michael Mann’s style – and pinched his crown, too, like it or not. Perhaps it’s impossible to see a convoy of black SUVs speeding across an urban landscape in a film without thinking of Mann, but Villeneuve certainly carries off the borrowing with style.

The resemblance struck me again this week watching this film a second time, along with the thought that Villeneuve was probably taking notes during Kathryn Bigelow’s Bin Laden thriller Zero Dark Thirty – particularly for those extended special-ops attack scenes filmed in night vision, as if on an alien planet. He maybe even did the same thing with the Coens’ No Country for Old Men, »

Jc Chandor Confirmed To Helm Crime Pic Triple Frontier

6 October 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It wasn’t too long ago that we brought you the news that A Most Violent Year director Jc Chandor was on the verge of inking a deal to oversee high-profile crime drama Triple Frontier, and now, the filmmaker’s place at the helm has been confirmed.

Incubating over at Paramount Pictures, the project was guided into the spotlight by The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty dream team Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal. Upon laying the foundations, however, both Bigelow and Boal moved onto pastures anew – namely the starry Bowe Bergdhal biopic. Despite this, Chandor will still be adapting Boal’s script for Triple Frontier, situated in the hellish organized crime triangle between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil.

Originally titled Sleeping Dogs – no affiliation to United Front Games’ open-world title of the same name – it’s understood that Paramount’s crime flick has five primary roles, and that both Tom Hanks »

Amour Fou (Jessica Hausner)

An ecstatically original work of film-history-philosophy with a digital-cinema palette of acutely crafted compositions. Amour Fou seamlessly blends together the paintings of Vermeer, the acting of Bresson, and the psychological undercurrents of a Dostoevsky novel. It is an intensely thrilling and often slyly comic work that manages to combine a passionately dispassionate love story of the highest order with a larger socio-historical examination of a new era of freedom, and the tragedy beset by »

Deadline is reporting that acclaimed director J.C. Chandor has agreed a deal to direct Universal PicturesTriple Frontier.

J.C. Chandor Fills Up His Directing Slate

1 October 2015 12:34 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

While writer-director J.C. Chandor's starry ensemble "Margin Call," follow-up Robert Redford vehicle "All Is Lost," and period drama "A Most Violent Year," all earned stronger reviews than breakout box office, these days the filmmaker is a hot director for hire. Paramount has signed Chandor to direct organized crime drama "Triple Frontier," which in its incarnation as "Sleeping Dogs" was written by Mark Boal with his "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Hurt Locker" partner Kathryn Bigelow set to direct; there was interest from Tom Hanks and Will Smith to star. The film produced by Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven and Alex Gartner (see Deadline) is set in a criminal safe haven along the borders of Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil.

J.C. Chandor Closes Deal to Direct ‘Triple Frontier’ for Paramount

30 September 2015 4:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After reports suggested J.C. Chandor was circling the Paramount action-thriller “Triple Frontier,” sources close to the project have confirmed that the “A Most Violent Year” helmer has closed a deal to direct the pic.

Mark Boal penned the screenplay with Charles Roven and Alex Gartner of Atlas Entertainment.

The film is set in the notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil where the Iguazu and Parana rivers converge — making “la triple frontera” difficult to monitor and a haven for organized crime.

Kathryn Bigelow was originally eyed to helm the movie, but after she decided to direct “Zero Dark Thirty” first, the film got shelved and she eventually left the project.

The studio will next try and lock in the large ensemble that it has wanted for the film. Sources say Will Smith is interested in starring and the dialogue ongoing, but negotiations have not yet begun between the two sides. »

'Serial' Podcast Heads to TV with 'Lego' and 'Jump Street' Producers

30 September 2015 4:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Nearly one year after the immensely popular podcast Serial first launched, producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller are teaming with Fox 21 Productions (Homeland), to create a TV series adaptation. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that series creator Sarah Koenig, who hosted the weekly podcast that was a spinoff of This American Life, sparked to Phil Lord and Chris Miller's pitch for a TV adaptation, which will chronicle the process of making the successful podcast instead of the case it chronicled. The producers will start pitching to cable networks once a team of writers are in place.

The series will not focus on the murder case that made the series so popular, involving Adnan Syed, who was convicted of killing his former girlfriend Hae Min Lee in 2000. The podcast's 12-episode first season explored the case as Sarah Koenig and her team conducted their own investigation, which cast doubt on Adnan Syed's conviction. »

For Fact-Based Films, Is Scrupulous Accuracy the Ultimate Goal?

29 September 2015 9:49 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s perhaps appropriate that a film called “Truth” is gearing up for this year’s awards race, with other movies on the circuit already weathering the usual criticisms regarding the dramatization of real-life events.

At the Telluride Film Festival, “Steve Jobs” screenwriter Aaron Sorkin got out in front of the fact that the Danny Boyle-directed biopic doesn’t necessarily present things accurately. “Art isn’t about what happened,” Sorkin said at the time. “You can see a very good piece of journalism about him.” The goal, he said, was to make a “painting” rather than a “photograph.”

Last season, Ava DuVernay’s “Selma” was blindsided by criticisms over accuracy late in the year, kicking off a cycle of pieces that didn’t help its chances. Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher” took its share of knocks as well. We’re also three years removed from the unprecedented Congressional takedown of »

Jessica Chastain: Hollywood oversexualises female action stars

29 September 2015 5:20 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Oscar nominee says studios should follow example of Alien’s Sigourney Weaver and The Hunger GamesJennifer Lawrence to avoid creating sexualised women ‘in some catsuit’

Zero Dark Thirty star Jessica Chastain has called for Hollywood to stop sexualising female action stars in a new interview for the Radio Times.

Chastain, who is currently promoting her role opposite Matt Damon in Ridley Scott space drama The Martian, is known for dramatic roles in civil rights period piece The Help and super-serious science-fiction thriller Interstellar. But she retains an interest in taking on big-budget fantasy projects, provided the role on offer doesn’t require her to don tight clothing.
