Catherine Zeta-Jones Set for Drug Lord Biopic 'The Godmother'

13 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Catherine Zeta-Jones has signed on to star in the biopic The Godmother, playing true-life female drug kingpin Giselda Blanco.

Giselda Blanco was the only woman to ever rise through the ranks of Colombian's notorious Medellin cartel, a feared figure during the drug wars that exploded in Miami during the 1970s and 1980s. She was said to have ordered hundreds of assassinations to attain her grip on the drug trade, which earned her nicknames such as La Madrina, Black Widow, and the Cocaine Godmother. Her story was also told in the 2006 Magnolia Pictures documentary Cocaine Cowboys.

Blanco was born in Cartegena, Colombia, spending her childhood as a teenage runaway and prostitute before emigrating to New York City. Along with her husband, she started a cocaine business before she was forced to flee back to Colombia to escape federal charges. Blanco later resurfaced in Miami, where she set up a drug network between Los Angeles, »

Catherine Zeta-Jones To Play Colombian Drug Lord In ‘The Godmother’

15 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Catherine Zeta-Jones, nominated for a Golden Globe for her turn as the ruthless wife of a drug lord in 2000’s Traffic, has landed an even juicier role in the true story crime biopic The Godmother. In a new film directed by Norwegian helmer Eva Sørhaug (90 Minutes, Cold Lunch) Zeta-Jones will play real life kingpin Griselda Blanco, the first and only woman to rise to the higher echelons of Colombia’s Medellin drug cartel.

Blanco was a fearsome figure at the center of the Miami drug wars of the 1970s and ’80s depicted in the 2006 Magnolia Pictures-released documentary Cocaine Cowboys. Her reign of terror, in which she’s suspected to have ordered hundreds of assassinations to stay in money and power, was so vicious and violent that it earned her the nicknames La Madrina, Black Widow, and the Cocaine Godmother.

Blanco was also one of the biggest success stories »

Steven Soderbergh Recuts 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' as Silent Film

24 September 2014 3:17 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While it may be some time before we see a new film from "retired" director Steven Soderbergh, his latest experiment on the website may be the closest thing we get. The filmmaker posted a new black and white "silent" cut of the 1981 classic Raiders of the Lost Ark, which has absolutely no dialogue, but does feature music from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross scores for The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Earlier this year, he cut together mash-ups of both the original version of Psycho and the 1998 remake on the website.

Click on the image below to watch the 115-minute video in its entirety, then take a look at Steven Soderbergh's statement about why he made Raiders of the Lost Ark a silent film.

The Definitive ‘What the F**k?’ Movies: 10-1

23 September 2014 8:26 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

10. Altered States (1980)

Directed by: Ken Russell

Is it a horror film? Many of Ken Russell’s films could be argued as such, but there’s enough in Altered States that makes it less horror and more science fiction/psychological thriller. Based on the novel by Paddy Chayefsky, Altered States introduced the world to William Hurt (and also featured the film debut of Drew Barrymore). Edward Jessup (Hurt) is studying schizophrenia, but branches out into sensory deprivation experimentation with a floating tank. Eventually, he travels to Mexico to visit a tribe that provides him with an extract which he begins to take before his trips into the flotation tank, resulting in bizarre imagery and eventual physical devolution, once to a primitive man and to a near primordial blob. Side effects start to occur, causing Edward to suffer from episodes of partial regression even without the hallucinogenic drug. Russell’s direction shifts »

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

The Cameras Begin Rolling For Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike Xxl

2 September 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While this past Labor Day weekend was very much considered a holiday in the Us, the production team behind Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike Xxl abstained from the annual celebrations and quietly began filming on the raunchy stripper-centric sequel.

News comes by way of Soderbergh’s Twitter account, where he posted a view of the film’s official clapperboard from the set, which also confirms that Magic Mike Xxl will be situated at least in parts within Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

It’s On!

— Bitchuation (@Bitchuation) August 31, 2014

And though Soderbergh is still very much involved in the follow-up after overseeing the first film, the renowned filmmaker has passed on directing duties to long-time collaborator, Gregory Jacobs, who worked alongside Soderbergh for a number of productions including Side Effects and last year’s rather excellent Behind the Candelabra.

Production on Magic Mike Xxl is officially underway

1 September 2014 11:19 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While many spent the long Labor Day weekend soaking up the few remaining days of summer, the cast and crew of Magic Mike Xxl were hard at work as the follow-up to Steven Soderbergh’s 2012 film Magic Mike began production.

Soderbergh announced the news himself via Twitter, under one of his various alter-egos, and posted the following image while saying, “It’s On!”…

Soderbergh has passed directing duties on Magic Mike Xxl to his longtime collaborator Gregory Jacobs, who worked as assistant director on films like Side Effects, Behind the Candelabra and the Ocean’s trilogy. Instead, Soderbergh will act as director of photography, film editor (under alias Mary Ann Bernard), and camera man (under his cinematographer alias Peter Andrews).

At this time we know little about Magic Mike Xxl, other than that Channing Tatum is reprising his role as the eponymous male stripper, while Matthew McConaughey is not expected to return. »

'Magic Mike Xxl' Begins Production, Steven Soderbergh Steps Behind the Camera

1 September 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

While most spent the long Labor Day weekend enjoying what's left of the summer, a hot title of next summer's slate began production: Magic Mike Xxl. Steven Soderbergh, who helmed the original male stripper flick penned by Channing Tatum and Reid Carolin, tweeted a shot of the sequel's clapperboard on Sunday, adding, "It's On!" While he's passed the director's torch to his oft-collaborator Gregory Jacobs (who was Soderbergh's first assistant director on Side Effects, Behind the Candelabra and the Ocean's films, among other films), he has signed on as Xxl's director of photography, camera operator and film editor.

Seven Years Later, 'Foxcatcher' Finally Makes it to the Big Screen

25 August 2014 10:37 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm ecstatic I'll finally be seeing Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher at the Toronto Film Festival, beginning on September 4, which is to say in less than two weeks from now. Today a new poster for the film has premiered and along with that, over at Vulture they have profiled the upcoming release which stars Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo, though that wasn't always in intention. The Vulture piece reveals Miller first started working on the script for Foxcatcher in 2007 with Dave Eggers and at the time was thnking of Ryan Gosling and Bill Nighy for the leads, and also spoke with Heath Ledger for a role. But things quickly changed after seeing the 2006 feature A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints. E. Max Frye who was ultimately credited with the screenplay alongside Dan Futterman remembers Miller's light bulb moment saying, "I remember Bennett saying, 'This is the guy! He even has a mixed-martial-arts background! »

TV Brain Drain: Development Season Off to Slow Start

13 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The doors are open, but where are the pitches? That's the question asked in TV studio and network halls in recent weeks as executives grapple with an increasingly crowded landscape. Side effects of the boom in scripted programs — cable alone aired 144 original series in 2013, up from 29 a decade earlier — are a smaller pool of available writers and a schedule that no longer fits with the broadcast networks' traditional pitch season of July 4 to Labor Day. "It's a great time to be representing talent because there are multiple suitors for a TV writer," says ABC

The Knick Series Premiere Recap: It Seems We Are Still Lacking

8 August 2014 8:12 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

We’re well past the point where anyone could accuse Steven Soderbergh of resting on his laurels. Safe to say that his “I’m retiring” prattling during the Side Effects (2013) and Behind the Candelabra (2013) rollouts — whipped up into a state-of-the-cinematic-art lament by the Moloch that is the 24-hour news cycle — was more off-hours musing than prophetic threat. Now perhaps we can go back to judging his work as we should most art: project by project. As it comes, when (and if) it comes. Our clocks aren’t, and shouldn’t, be his.Appropriate, then, that Soderbergh’s new undertaking — Cinemax’s period hospital drama, The Knick, of which he directed, edited, and photographed all ten first-season episodes — begins in the nebulous space of an opium den, where time evaporates in benumbed bliss. The high is short-lived: No sooner have we settled into the sensational first shot (Pov over a propped-up »

TV Review: Grisly Sacrifice for Science in Captivating Period Drama ‘The Knick’

8 August 2014 6:16 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – Cinemax’s ominous new series “The Knick” is a hospital drama that’s very much in the voice of its director, Steven Soderbergh. Set in New York City at the turn of the 20th century, the series presents the medical world as it inches closer and closer to modernity, while making contemporary parallels to the desperate hustle by surgery room clients and their doctors alike regarding treatment of the human body. What has changed in the politics of medicine? What hasn’t?

Television Rating: 4.0/5.0

The Knick is the name of the hospital (formally called The Knickerbocker) that employs John W. Thackery, a disturbed surgeon played by Clive Owen, who tiptoes towards medical breakthroughs often at the expense of human lives. He proclaims emotionally early in episode one that science is at a crucial point, in which more breakthroughs have been made in the last five years compared to the last five hundred. »

Rooney Mara Replaces Jessica Chastain In The Secret Scripture

23 July 2014 10:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After breaking out in David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo with her Oscar-nominated turn as hacker Lisbeth Salander, Rooney Mara has steadily cemented her reputation as one of the most talented young actresses working today with strong performances in Ain’t Them No Bodies Saints, Side Effects and Her. And she doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon, with Stephen Daldry’s Trash, an untitled Terrence Malick project and erotic thriller Carol in the can. Now, we’ve learned that Mara has booked another high-profile gig leading the Jim Sheridan-directed The Secret Scripture.

Mara will replace Jessica Chastain in the drama, “about a 100-year-old woman named Roseanne who recounts her life in mental institutions in a secret memoir.” She will be playing the younger version of Roseanne, “who survives a traumatic childhood only to see her life utterly changed by a vindictive Catholic priest. »

Steven Soderbergh Explains Why He Retired From Film Directing

7 July 2014 7:37 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Few filmmakers have left behind a body of work quite like Steven Soderbergh. The skilled storyteller and Oscar winner bowed out last year after his last theatrically-released film, Side Effects, instead opting to dabble in television, artwork, and occasional side endeavors. Prolific to the very end, Soderbergh hasn't been linked to any directorial projects in almost two years right now . normal for other filmmakers, but not for him. We really aren't going to get any more Steven Soderbergh-directed movies for a long time, and for a very basic reason. In an excellent, probing interview with Esquire, Steven Soderbergh elaborates on why he backed away from movies. Promoting the new television series The Knick starring Clive Owen, Soderbergh simply, and tragically, credits the fact that filmmaking was no longer any "fun." "The bottom line when people talk about all the reasons, you know the biggest reason? It stopped being fun. »

Soderbergh on his ‘retirement’: ‘It stopped being fun’

7 July 2014 2:57 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »


The running line about Steven Soderbergh in the last few years has been that he’s the most prolific retired filmmaker today, supposedly having given up film for good and turned his mind toward other mediums and projects. And in the short time since February 2013 when his official “last film” Side Effects was released, he’s been busy at work with the HBO movie Behind the Candelabra, the Cinemax show The Knick and a Broadway production called The Library.

But Soderbergh Monday clarified his “retirement” in an interview with Esquire.

The bottom line when people talk about all the reasons, you know the biggest reason? It stopped being fun. It just stopped being fun. It really wasn’t. That’s a big deal to me,” Soderbergh said. “ The ratio of bullshit to the fun part of doing the work was really starting to get out of whack.”

"It Stopped Being Fun," the Biggest Reason Steven Soderbergh Quit the Movies

7 July 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In a new interview with Steven Soderbergh at Esquire, the director of the upcoming Cinemax television show "The Knick" discussed the "biggest reason" he got out of movies, which was, "It stopped being fun." The fact that it became a story at all is because of Matt Damon. He remembered verbatim a drunk conversation we had in Chicago and repeated it to USA Today. I'd talked about it before and nobody gave a sh*t. It wasn't until Matt said that I had a plan to get out. The bottom line when people talk about all the reasons, you know the biggest reasonc It stopped being fun. It just stopped being fun. It really wasn't. That's a big deal to me.

The day after the world premiere of Transformers: Age of Extinction in Hong Kong, I landed an awesome extended video interview with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura.  Since the franchise launched in 2007, he's produced all the films along with projects like G.I. Joe, Red, Side Effects,Stardust, and many more.  While we already posted what he had to say about Joe Carnahan's Five Against a Bullet, G.I. Joe 3, David S. Goyer's The Breach, the possibility of a Transformers/G.I. Joe crossover movie, and the Dead Rising digital series, it's finally time for what he had to say about making Age of Extinction. During the interview he talked about how the story came together for the film, how and why they finally brought in the dinobots, the way they work with Hasbro, how breaking the story led to introducing a new kind of character to the Transformers movie mythology, »
