Darren Aronofsky's got another flood on his hands after this year's "Noah": he's executive producing an HBO adaptation of Margaret Atwood's MaddAddam trilogy, set in the middle of the 21st century after a so-called Waterless Flood that nearly wipes all of humanity off the planet. In the Canadian author's trilogy--"Oryx and Crake," "The Year of the Flood" and "MaddAddam"--corporations have replaced governments and genetic modification is all the rage. As Vulture reported today in a conversation with the author, Atwood will be a consulting producer on the project, and has been a part of the extensive planning process to determine the show's structure. But she has no plans to write an episode: "I'm too old," she told the website. "I think my role as a consultant is to stay alive until they finish it, so I can actually see it!" When asked by Vulture's Jennifer »

Academy Award-nominated director John Stevenson of Kung Fu Panda fame will direct Unified Pictures first CG-animated feature, inspired by the story of Noah's Ark. The catch this time around is that tells the story from the point of view of the animals because of course it does. I suppose the Darren Aronofsky take on Noah this year may not have satisfied everyone’s hunger for more "great flood" storytelling. Here’s the synopsis: The story »

If you’re an independent film company looking to make the first leap into producing a CG-animated feature, you’re going to want to find an experienced director to make it. Such is the case with Unified Pictures, which has hired DreamWorks Animation veteran John Stevenson to tackle a comedy version of the Noah’s Ark story.While Darren Aronofsky brought the Biblical tale to the screen with doomy dramatic style this year, Unified is looking to instead focus on the animals’ adventures. Our hero is an outcast aardvark named Gilbert, who has greatness thrust upon him when he becomes the reluctant leader of a group of rag-tag animals who must get to the Ark before the flood arrives. As they make their perilous journey across the land, they learn to work together, and Gilbert, surrounded by pairs, figures out that one doesn’t have to be the loneliest number. »

Since becoming a fully-fledged producer/distributor of drama and comedic content, Amazon has been dealing with some big names. Its upcoming slate features a project from Steven Soderbergh and the company are even courting the indie scene via director Whit Stillman (Barcelona). But the studio’s latest announcement sees them talking to God and entering what could be choppy waters with an epic Biblical pitch called Promised Land. A dramatization of The Book Of Joshua from the Old Testament, their idea is to develop a pilot based around the story of two brothers leading up to the formation of the Israelite nation. An epic saga involving slavery and a perilous journey, the series concept will also no doubt feature the bloody battles that occurred in the name of conquest.
A complex tale to summarize, but it should be intriguing to see Amazon’s approach in this age of historical output like Spartacus, »

The film was written and directed by David Ayer, whose helming credits include “End of Watch,” and whose writing credits include “Training Day” and “The Fast and the Furious.” Pic also stars Shia Labeouf (“Nymphomaniac”), Logan Lerman (“Noah”), Michael Pena (“End of Watch”), and Jon Bernthal (“The Wolf of Wall Street”).

Sony Pictures is pushing up the release of David Ayer's intense world War II film "Fury," marking "Inglourious Basterds" star Brad Pitt's return to World War II as the commander of a battle-weary five-man tank unit at the end of their tour of duty--from November 14, 2014 to October 17, 2014. "Transformers" star Shia Labeouf, Logan Lerman ("Noah"), Jon Bernthal ("Walking Dead") and Ayer regular Michael Pena ("End of Watch") also star in this 35 mm portrait of men under pressure. Why the move? It's clearly a less competitive time frame. "Gone Girl" opens the week before, whereas in November the actioner would be up against some powerful players: Chris Nolan's "Interstellar," the "Hunger Games" sequel "Mockingjay" Part I and in the awards arena, Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher." If "Fury" turns out to be an awards contender--Pitt and Logan Lerman »

I quite liked Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. It’s not the type of film I’ll likely return to again and again like some of his other work, but I was surprised the strength of vision his Bible pic possessed. It was also interesting to note the reaction of a few über religious people with whom I was sharing the theater, getting upset because “that’s not the way it really happened.” I don’t think Aronofsky was attempting to rattle their feathers, I actually think he was trying to retrofit a popular story with elements that are significant to our current civilization as we teeter upon the edge of environmental disaster. Myths and the narrative framework in which we view our lives are often necessary constructs to impart meaning and significance upon events. Darren Aronofsky gets that, so it’s a pleasure seeing him speak at some length regarding it. »

The visually stunning global hit Noah, from director Darren Aronofsky, is now available on Blu-ray/DVD. The film is an action spectacular with impressive visuals that could have only been brought to life through a collaboration between the visionary filmmaker and Industrial Light & Magic. Visual effects supervisor Ben Snow (who’s also worked on King Kong, Terminator Salvation, Iron Man 1 and 2, and Pirates of the Caribbean 4, and is currently working on Avengers: Age of Ultron) recently spoke to Collider for this exclusive phone interview about how daunting it was to take on the visual effects for a movie as epic as Noah, bringing the Bible to life in a respectful way, working on effects that are specific to the personality of each individual character, the biggest creative challenges on the film, how visual effects have most advanced in the last few years, and how difficult it is to distance yourself »

Some books are widely considered to be ‘unfilmable’ for a multitude of reasons, from complex themes to unconventional narrative construction to epic scope. Philip Roth’s seminal novel American Pastoral exhibits all of those traits – but Lakeshore Entertainment is still moving full steam ahead with an adaptation of it to be helmed by Phillip Noyce (The Giver). Today, Noah actress Jennifer Connelly, who won an Oscar for A Beautiful Mind, joined the cast, which is being led by Ewan McGregor.
Connelly is set to play Dawn, the wife of protagonist Swede Levov (McGregor). Said Lakeshort CEO Tom Rosenberg:
