2015 Cannes Critics’ Panel Day 11: Kurzel’s “Macbeth” Avoids Tragic Fate

23 May 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

It was last year’s most snap worthy Cannes Market one sheet image and it pretty much secured an In Comp entry the moment Marion Cotillard signed on. The actresses’ fourth consecutive year in the Palme d’Or hopefuls (Rust and Bone, The Immigrant, Two Days, One Night), actually make that five if it is followed by It’s Only the End of the World in 2016, this latest version of Macbeth comes from an Aussie director who made the most noise in the Critics’ Week section when his Snowtown (later known as The Snowtown Murders) launched Justin Kurzel into a nice sophomore gig. While some of our critics jetted out early, here is a sampling of grades to feast on.

Wild Bunch launches La sales arm Insiders

9 May 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

First titles include Jeff NicholsLoving and Sean Penn’s Flag Day, starring daughter Dylan Penn.

Wild Bunch has announced the launch of a new La-based sales company, called Insiders, focused on independent pictures with budgets above $15m.

The new outfit will act as a sales service company for third party financiers, who will eventually also have the opportunity to take an equity stake in the entity. Insiders will be their independent sales agent, marketing their films to distributors around the globe.

Wild Bunch co-founder Vincent Maraval said the creation of Insiders was in response to the growing importance of equity financiers in the financing of independent film production in the Us.

“Over the last few years we’ve seen the American market for the financing of independent film change - with equity partners increasingly financing independent American films more than distributors,” he told ScreenDaily.

As a result of this trend, he said, Wild Bunch »

James Gray Bites Into 'Hard Apple' With '70s-Set Animated Crime Series

9 April 2015 1:32 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Well, here's something both unexpected and a little bit surprising. While James Gray is well-versed in crime drama ("Little Odessa," "The Yards," "We Own The Night"), he's not the first name you think of when you hear the word "animation." Given his unsatisfactory experience making "The Red Road," you might think television and the small screen wouldn't be an enticing proposition. But here's the thing, this time he's going to have a lot more control, and the material sounds pretty great. Read More: James Gray Talks 'The Immigrant,' Working With Marion Cotillard, The Late Harris Savides, And Much More Variety reports that Gray will executive produce and look over all the creative decisions on "Hard Apple." The animated show is geared towards adults and based on Jerome Charyn’s books that track Isaac Sidel, a fictional a detective who walks through three decades of law enforcement starting in the 1970s. »

Canal Plus Bites Into ‘Hard Apple’ With James Gray (Exclusive)

8 April 2015 9:07 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Looking to explore different genre and worlds, French pay TV giant Canal Plus is joining forces with American filmmaker James Gray to foray into “Hard Apple,” an adult-skewing animated series.

Gray, whose latest movie, the Marion Cotillard starrer “The Immigrant,” opened in competition at Cannes, will serve as executive producer and will supervise all creative aspects of the series, including the writing.

Inspired by New York-born author Jerome Charyn’s “Isaac Sidel” novels, the series opens in the 1970s and charts the rise of New York City’s premier law enforcer, detective Isaac Sidel, as he covers three decades of crime and political corruption.

Hard Apple” brings together an A-list creative team, leading with Israeli illustrators Tomer and Asaf Hanuka, who have worked for the New Yorker, Rolling Stone, as well as Ari Folman’s film “Waltz With Bashir.” The pair will create the animation designs such as the decor and characters. »

Interview: James Gray Talks 'The Immigrant,' Diving Into TV With 'Red Road,' And His Own Favorite Films

8 April 2015 9:03 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Director James Gray is something of a cinematic chameleon. While his films to date could be broadly categorized as crime dramas ("Little Odessa," "The Yards," "We Own The Night") or romances ("Two Lovers"), those descriptors are often merely the cloak that hides deeply layered and complex character studies between fathers and sons, men and women, those chasing ambition, or trying to outrun fate. And while the beautifully produced "The Immigrant," on Blu-ray this week, is on its face a period drama, it's also so much more. Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Marion Cotillard and Jeremy Renner, the film tells the story of Ewa, a Polish immigrant who crosses over to America in the early 1900s, only to discover her path to the American Dream thwarted by a charming, but deceptive, young man who forces her into prostitution. But hope lingers for Ewa, thanks to the attention of a magician who is eager to whisk her away. »

Canal Plus Stocks Up on High-End English-Language Series (Exclusive)

8 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With the launch of Netflix in France, the competition for subscribers has heated up, and Gallic pay TV giant Canal Plus is now, more than ever, banking on premium original drama, and building bridges with local and international film and TV talent, to keep its 11 million subs happy, and lure more.

A decade ago, Canal Plus was all about soccer and films. But today, the TV landscape has changed, and the paybox — which has lost some of its French soccer rights to Al Jazeera’s Bein Sports — has begun to measure its value in high-quality local series rather than be overly dependent on U.S. drama imports (such as “Scandal,” “The Big Bang Theory” and “Revenge”). Fabrice de la Patelliere, the boss of Canal Plus’ fiction department, is kicking off a new chapter in the pay TV group’s history by joining forces with James Gray on “Hard Apple,” an »

'A Most Violent Year' and 'The Immigrant' Lead This Week's New DVD and Blu-rays

7 April 2015 8:10 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

A Most Violent Year I was not the fan most were of J.C. Chandor's A Most Violent Year. It was one of those movies I respected more than enjoyed for its aesthetic, its approach to the genre and the performances. However, as I wrote in my review, I felt it was "a movie that feels like it's trying to be something rather than actually being that something." A second viewing may give me a little more respect for its narrative, but that's where I sit right now.

readmore postid="163864" The Immigrant The appreciation people have for James Gray's The Immigrant is something I will never understand. I saw it at the Cannes Film Festival back in 2013 (read my review here) and wow did I not enjoy it.

The Immigrant Blu-Ray Review

31 March 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The long journey from the shores of France to American homes is now over for The Immigrant, James Gray’s magnificent period drama that had a theatrical life nearly as tumultuous as its fictional heroine’s. Premiering to festival plaudits nearly a year before making it to North America, The Immigrant went from thoroughbred awards horse to shuffled-off afterthought in the time between Cannes 2013, and a 2014 wide release. Preceding the film’s new Blu-Ray transfer (announced in February to the surprise and relief of many) is a trailer for The Imitation Game, which The Weinstein Company put its best awards campaign muscle behind. The preview helps to illuminate what made The Immigrant – a film with a surface so Oscar-ready it’s golden-hued – a prestige season runt.

Whereas The Imitation Game was snappy, virtuoso, and built for maximum efficiency, The Immigrant is reserved, melodramatic, and abstruse. It’s an examination of faith and redemption, »

Birdman executive producer files $70m lawsuit against film finance company

25 March 2015 3:55 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Birdman executive producer Sarah Johnson has filed a $70m lawsuit against Worldview Entertainment.

Johnson filed the suit on March 12, claiming that the company behind the Oscar-winning film misused her investments and lied to her about its financial situation for years.

She says that this has caused her to lose around the sum of $20 million, and as a result is seeking $70m in damages for a total of 28 counts of alleged mismanagement, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

The executive producer has made investments to Worldview since 2011, for projects including Welcome to the Punch, The Immigrant and Devil's Knot.

The suit claims that the company "made repeated representations to Plaintiff regarding the status of her investments in order to induce her to make continued financial contributions to the Worldview Film Funds".

It is also alleged that former CEO Christopher Woodrow and Maria Cestone told Johnson that she would receive a 20% return on her investments, »

‘Birdman’ Financier Worldview Hit with New Suit

23 March 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Worldview Entertainment, which helped finance best picture Oscar winner “Birdman,” has been hit with a lawsuit alleging fraud and mismanagement of a $25 million investment by one of its major backers.

Sarah Johnson, daughter of billionaire Charles B. Johnson, made the allegations in a March 12 suit filed in New York State Court.

“This misconduct has substantially devalued Plaintiff’s investment and virtually ensured that she will recoup a fraction of the millions of dollars she invested in the Worldview Film Funds,” the suit said.

Besides “Birdman,” the complaint details transactions dating back to 2011 and involving “Blood Ties,” “Devils’ Knot,” “Tulip Fever,” “The Immigrant,” “Welcome to the Punch,” “The Green Inferno,” “Child 44,” “Song One” and “Wish I Was Here.”

It’s the fourth suit involving Worldview that has been filed since last summer, when founder Christopher Woodrow was ousted. The company has largely ceased operating.

The project, currently titled McQueen, has already attracted the interest of director James Gray (The Immigrant) and stars such as Channing Tatum, Ryan Gosling and Jeremy Renner.

‘Unique And Edgy’ Steve McQueen Biopic Pushes Forward

The life and times of Tinseltown’s coolest cat, Steve McQueen are being developed as a feature in a collaborative production between Lake Forest Entertainment and The Exchange.

Thought to be one of the hottest un-produced concepts, McQueen has caught the attention of many big name directors and A-listers in the past.

While the project will mainly be based on Marshall Terrill’s heavily-researched biography, Steve McQueen: The Life And Legend Of A Hollywood Icon, there’s another mysterious element that has everyone’s interests piqued.

Patricia Norris, the Oscar-nommed and Emmy-winning production designer and costume designer who helped craft distinctive looks for “12 Years a Slave,” “Scarface” and numerous other films, as well as TV’s “Twin Peaks,” died of natural causes on Feb. 20 in Van Nuys, Calif. She was 83.
