The Broad Green Layoffs: Why Good Movies Aren’t Enough to Avoid The Startup Curse

20 July 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When Wall Street billionaires Gabriel Hammond, 37, and his brother, Daniel, 33, launched independent producer-distributor Broad Green Pictures two summers ago, Hollywood was skeptical about its prospects. In a time when even the Weinsteins are struggling to survive, it was a strange time to reinvent a dying economic model.

Now Broad Green is laying off around 6 percent of its staff, all of whom work in the publicity department, the company confirmed to IndieWire. Broad Green’s publicity head Adam Keen, a former Warner Bros. publicity exec, has resigned. Marketing and communications personnel are traditionally the first casualties of cutbacks in Hollywood.

The layoffs were unsurprising. Ken Kwapis’s Sundance comedy “A Walk in the Woods” starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte managed $30 million, but that couldn’t counterbalance films like Ramin Bahrani’s well-reviewed real estate thriller “99 Homes” ($1.7 million domestic) and Sarah Silverman’s depressive drama “I Smile Back” ($58K). Now, the »

First Trailer For Terrence Malick-Produced ‘The Vessel’ Starring Martin Sheen Looks Like It Was Directed By Terrence Malick

1 July 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The suddenly prolific Terrence Malick isn’t just busy making his own movies, but lending his producing powers to other projects that have no shame in borrowing his aesthetic. “The Better Angels,” directed by “To The Wonder,” “Knight Of Cups,” and “Weightless” editor A.J. Edwards, certainly bore the trademark look and feel of Malick feature, and […]

Malick Goes to IMAX

30 June 2016 3:08 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Leave it to Terrence Malick to always keep us guessing when his next film will drop. Recently we got word that his long-rumored documentary Voyage of Time would finally be dropping this fall and on massive IMAX screens to boot - before the star filled Weightless that he shot back-to-back with this year's Knight of Cups. Like his movies, I guess the release schedules and post-production meander as well.

But even without Weightless's star power, Voyage will pack wattage of its own. Ennio Morricone will be scoring the film, reuniting him with the director after almost forty years since they collaborated on Days of Heaven. And there may not be recognizable faces on screen among the eyepopping visuals, but Brad Pitt narrates (Cate Blanchett is set to narrate the extended, non-imax version that is also rumored).

If you have your doubts about another Mallick meditation on existance, consider that »

IMAX Releases Poster and Official Synopsis for Terrence Malick’s ‘Voyage of Time’

27 June 2016 6:39 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In just a few weeks, Terrence Malick will begin production on his new World War II drama Radegund — but it won’t be the last time we hear about the director this year. Along with recently finishing work on his Austin-set drama Weightless — which won’t get a theatrical release until 2017, but may show up at a film festival in the fall — his long-gestating documentary Voyage of Time will arrive in just a few months.

Earlier this summer, IMAX let slip that they’ll give the film a release on October 7, and now they’ve updated their official site with a new synopsis and confirmed a runtime, along with the release date. This version (Voyage of Time: The IMAX Experience) clocks in at 40 minutes with narration from Brad Pittt and the synopsis lets us learn a bit more about the project, which they say is his “most original film to date. »

22 June 2016 9:10 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

New Roy Andersson feature About Endlessness also gets backing from Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg.

Terrence Malick is lining up WWII drama Radegund (aka Jägerstätter), about the life of Franz Jägerstätter, an Austrian conscientious objector during World War II who was executed by the Nazis in 1943 aged 36.

Set to play Jägerstätter is August Diehl (Inglourious Basterds, The Counterfeiters), while Valerie Pachner (Jack) is also due to join.

The project was announced by the German funding body the Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, which is backing it with €400,000.

The drama is reportedly set to shoot at Studio Babelsberg in Potsdam, Germany, this summer and marks Malick’s return to the WWII era following acclaimed 1998 title The Thin Red Line.

The title Radegund refers to the Thuringian princess and Frankish queen from the 6th century who found protection under the Church after fleeing her marriage when her husband had her »

Terrence Malick's Next Film Is "Radegund"

22 June 2016 8:09 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Knight of Cups" opened earlier this year, "Weightless" still hasn't locked a release date, and the documentary "Voyage Of Time" is a few months off. Nevertheless, that's not stopping filmmaker Terrence Malick from setting up his next project.

Blickpunkt: Film (via The Playlist) says that Malick has received funding from a German funding body towards the production of his next feature "Radegund".

"Inglourious Basterds" actor August Diehl plays Franz Jagerstatter, an Austrian man who opposed the Nazis and refused to fight as a conscientious objector - causing him to be executed by the Nazis in 1943. Axel Corti previously adapted his story on film in 1971, and in 2007 Jagerstatter was beatified and declared a martyr by Pope Benedict XVI.

Shooting will take place at Studio Babelsberg this summer. »

Terrence Malick Reveals New World War II Drama ‘Radegund,’ Starring August Diehl

22 June 2016 7:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Terrence Malick hasn’t made a wartime drama since 1998’s enormous “The Thin Red Line,” but that’s soon about to change thanks to an intriguing new project. According to The Film Stage and several German news sources, the director will head to World War II for his next movie in order to tell the true story of Franz Jägerstätter, an Austrian solider who became a conscientious objector during World War II and was sentenced to death at age 36 for his actions. “Inglourious Basterds” star August Diehl is set to play Jägerstätter.

The film is currently titled “Radegund” and is set to begin shooting at Studio Babelsberg in Potsdam, Germany this summer. Could that mean Malick is actually finished with his gestating projects “Voyage Of Time” and “Weightless”? Possibly, but it’s notoriously hard to tell with the reclusive filmmaker. »

Terrence Malick Announces Next Film ‘Radegund,’ Based on the Life of Franz Jägerstätter

22 June 2016 6:31 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With Knight of Cups arriving on Blu-ray this week, his Austin-set drama Weightless finally completed, and his long-gestating Voyage of Time set for an IMAX release this October, director Terrence Malick seems to be taking no breaks as he’s already looking towards his next project.

In 2007, Pope Benedict XVI declared Jägerstätter a martyr, and he was beatified in a ceremony. Set to play Jägerstätter is August Diehl (Inglourious Basterds, The Counterfeiters), while Valerie Pachner will also join.

‘Knight of Cups’ Exclusive Behind-The-Scenes Clip: Natalie Portman & Others Talk Working With Terrence Malick

21 June 2016 1:55 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups” follows a Hollywood screenwriter Rick (Christian Bale) in the midst of an existential crisis as he tries to find solace in garish industry excess and frequent dalliances with women. Divided into eight chapters named after Tarot cards following Rick’s relationship with another person in his life, Malick abstracts internal pain and confusion into a momentous visual experience that’s both intimate and alienating.

Watch an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip below featuring actors like Natalie Portman, Frieda Pinto, Antonio Banderas and more talk about Malick’s unique filmmaking process.

Long-Gestating Terrence Malick Drama Weightless Unveils Running Time And Star-Studded Cast

24 May 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It may have first entered production all the way back in 2011, but thanks to directing duties on both To The Wonder and, more recently, the Christian Bale-led Knight of Cups, Weightless fell far down the pecking order for esteemed filmmaker Terrence Malick.

It’s finally starting to display signs of life, however, with the British Board Of Film Classification (via The Playlist) posting not only the movie’s official running time – just north of 145 minutes in length – but also the ensemble cast that will be headlining Malick’s latest creative effort.

Pulling together some of the talent that also featured in existential feature Knight of Cups, the filmmaker will reteam with Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman for the musical drama, while there’s also roles for Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Haley Bennett, Michael Fassbender, Val Kilmer, Benicio Del Toro, Clifton Collins Jr., Angela Bettis, Bérénice Marlohe, Florence Welch, »

Terrence Malick’s ‘Weightless’ Gets Runtime, Official Cast, and Rating

24 May 2016 6:38 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With Knight of Cups arriving on Blu-ray soon (albeit with some embarrassing cover art) and Voyage of Time finally getting a release date, the year of Terrence Malick looks to continue as promised. His other feature in the can is the Austin-set Weightless, which follows intersecting love triangles in the world of music. Today finally brings confirmation it’s complete with an official running time, rating, and cast.

Thanks to an update at the British Board of Film Classification, we know they’ve given the film a 15 rating for “infrequent strong sex” and “sex references,” which makes it likely the MPAA will slap the film with an R rating. They also note that Weightless runs 145 minutes and 45 seconds — nearly 30 minutes longer than Knight of Cups — and confirm the cast: Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Haley Bennett, Natalie Portman, Michael Fassbender, Val Kilmer, Benicio Del Toro, Clifton Collins Jr., »
