Screen Australia fast-tracks female-led films

12 July 2016 6:49 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Screen Australia has committed Au$3m ($2.3m) towards fast-tracking 58 projects by female filmmakers, as part of a broader gender equality initiative.

The cash injection from Australia’s federal screen agency will fund the development of 45 film and television story ideas and 13 female-led business proposals.

Several of the projects are by women filmmakers with past professional credits but a significant number of the features come from newcomers or those making the leap from other disciplines within the industry, who might not otherwise quality for funding under the established structures. 

The scheme will support the development of projects by 27 new directors and 46 first-time writers. 

Among the projects financed are: Kill The Messenger, a new romantic comedy from director Samantha Lang (The Monkey’s Mask); Ride Like A Girl, a story of Australia’s most successful female jockey, which marks the directorial debut of actress Rachel Griffiths; and drama thriller Runaway, from producer Alex White and writer Mirrah Foulkes (Blue »

Weekend Forecast: 'Ninja Turtles 2' Look to Take Down 'X-Men'

2 June 2016 2:02 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

A pair of sequels in X-Men: Apocalypse and Alice Through the Looking Glass led a soft Memorial Day weekend last week and things aren't looking much better this weekend. Paramount is delivering its own sequel this weekend in the form of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows while Warner Bros. targets the romantics among us with Me Before You and Universal's Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, which is merely hoping to keep its head above water. Over the past five years, the weekend following Memorial Day has seen an average drop of 18.7% for the top twelve. At this time, projections are looking at a drop just a bit higher, right around 20%, a percentage that could easily improve should Turtles 2 or last weekend's newcomers outperform expectations. Opening in 4,071 theaters, Paramount is estimating a $35-40 million opening weekend for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. It's an estimate that seems just »

25 May 2016 5:55 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Teplitzky (The Railway Man, Better Than Sex) said that "to work with Brian Cox and see him play such an icon will be an incredible experience..

Crime Caper Mr. Cranky Casts Brendan Gleeson For Title Role

8 February 2016 12:59 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Irish actor Brendan Gleeson has boarded Jonathan Teplitzky’s crime caper Mr. Cranky, according to Screen Daily.

Assuming the title role of Kevin Darcy, a temperamental crime-boss-cum-debt-collector, Gleeson’s addition is the first piece of casting to come out of the nascent project, which recently earned the backing of Metro International. Teplitzky (The Railway Man) will be working from Chris Nyst’s script, with the director eyeing a September shoot Down Under – Melbourne, to be specific.

Having arguably stole the show across both In Bruges and The Guard, Brendan Gleeson is perhaps the perfect fit to play a cantankerous mob boss, and he’ll be causing nine kinds of headaches in Mr. Cranky by threatening those people who can’t pay their debits. A standard mob boss, then; though things take a turn for the worse when Darcy’s rampant temper gets the best of him, sparks a gang war, »

Hong Sang-soo, Leonardo DiCaprio, and More Developing New Projects

8 February 2016 11:02 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Not exactly slowing his roll, Hong Sang-soo is already shooting the follow-up to last year’s Right Now, Wrong Then — one of the finest films we saw in 2015, and one likely to end up on a few best-of-2016 lists if it actually gets released — all the while reuniting with leads Jung Jae-young and Kim Min-hee. Information on his 18th feature remains essentially non-existent to outsiders, but such is my enthusiasm for his work, arguably the best streak in modern cinema, that even a brief notice seems worthwhile. [Korean Film and Keyframe)

Also vague is a report from The Wrap that Leonardo DiCaprio will reunite with Revenant scribe Mark L. Smith for Conquest — a project about which nothing else (save for the involvement of Paramount and producer John Davis) is known. But there you have it.
