Anne Hathaway in The Shower; Actress to star in new comedy

27 August 2015 1:05 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Anne Hathaway in The Shower: Actress will topline female focussed comedy. Anne Hathaway in The Shower

Anne Hathaway in The Shower. Apologies for that disappointing, misleading headline. The title alludes to the fact that Anne Hathaway is set to star in a new alien invasion comedy called The Shower, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The script for the movie was on that best-of-the-best unmade screenplay list, the Blacklist, last year, and now it looks like it will roll into production very soon. The planned film is written and will be produced by Jac Schaeffer, along with Hathaway, the son of Ralph, Andrew Lauren, Adam Shulman (Hathaway’s husband) and D.J. Gugenheim.

The script is being billed by the trade as a cross between the Seth Rogen comedy This is the End, British flick Attack the Block and Bridesmaids.

The trade also posted the rough outline for the planned flick.

Captain America: Civil War - Frank Grillo on Crossbones

10 August 2015 10:30 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Frank Grillo talks about his role in the new Captain America film, and on getting his new costume just right...

This piece contains very light spoilers for Captain America: Civil War.

Taking his place amongst the sizeable cast for next year's Captain America: Civil War is Frank Grillo. He's returning, following his work in Captain America: The Winter Solder, to play the role of Brock Rumlow. Or, more to the point, Crossbones.

He's been chatting a little more as to what to expect from his work on the film.

"It’s just what you would imagine it to be", he told Collider. "That’s what we are. Me and [Chris] Evans were doing this scene for days, where we were supposed to be in a certain part of the world and they recreated that world. There were hundreds of extras, and there we were in the centre of it. [Robert] Downey »

"Raid" Remake Delayed By Casting Issues

10 August 2015 3:59 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One project we've not heard much about lately is that of the remake of the 2011 Indonesian martial arts action thriller "The Raid". Acclaimed by critics, the project was picked up and distributed by Sony Pictures Classics who were also developing an English language remake for their Screen Gems arm.

At last report Patrick Hughes was set to direct and both Frank Grillo and Taylor Kitsch were attached to star. Speaking at the Television Critics Association on behalf of his DirecTV original series "Kingdom" on Sunday, Grillo revealed to Slashfilm that the project seems to have stalled due to casting issues:

"The Raid was a go movie and there was one character, the critical character, that they were just not happy with. There's not a lot of 30-something guys out there that... there's a lot of training, a lot of martial arts training.

They weren't going to remake The Raid, which is a beloved film, »

6 May 2015 6:37 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a pre-Cannes move, Tim Nye’s Abbolita Films is expanding into distribution through a strategic partnership with “The Raid” producer Xyz Films, Variety has learned exclusively.

The new venture will involve acquisition and distribution of films across a variety of territories including Turkey, Portugal, Greece, Israel, South Africa, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, Hong Kong and the Philippines. Xyz will consult.

“We believe that with Xyz’s pipeline of production and sales content, we will be able to expand on Abbolita’s desire to build out a 21st century distribution network across traditional and new distribution platforms,” said Abbolita founder Tim Nye.

Xyz has been involved with producing New Zealand’s Oscar foreign-language submission “The Dead Lands,” Cannes title “On the Job” from the Philippines and the actioner “Pilgrimage,” currently shooting in Ireland and Belgium starring Jon Bernthal, Richard Armitage and Tom Holland. The partnership with Abbolita moves Xyz into distribution in international territories. »
