‘Arrival’ Could Never Have Been Made By a Studio: Here’s Why

9 November 2016 10:57 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Look under the hood and many of the Hollywood studios’ best movies are independently financed, like Paramount Pictures’ “Arrival.” The studio won the brainy sci-fi thriller in a Cannes 2014 bidding war, plunking down a record $20 million for North America and other territories — but only after it was already financed and packaged with Oscar-nominated Denis Villeneuve, Amy Adams, and Jeremy Renner.

Arrival” was initially developed at Twentieth Century Fox, where director-producer Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps Entertainment has sustained a rich first-look production deal for 10 years that stretches back to the first “Night at the Museum.” Levy, who studied English and Theater at Yale, has continued to direct family movies like “Cheaper By the Dozen” and DreamWorks’ “Real Steel;” meanwhile, 21 Laps also produced “Date Night,” the $2-million Sundance A24 hit “The Spectacular Now” (developed from the bestseller), and discovery Matt and Ross Duffer’s breakout sci-fi Netflix series “Stranger Things.”

Sandman Movie Writer Quits, Wants a TV Show Instead

4 November 2016 10:34 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in March, New Line Cinema's highly-anticipated adaptation of Sandman suffered a huge blow when it lost Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who had been attached to both direct and star in the movie. Today we have word that the project has now lost its screenwriter, Eric Heisserer, who came aboard in March, just one day after Joseph Gordon-Levitt left the project. While doing press for his new movie Arrival, the writer says he's taken himself off the project, and that this Neil Gaiman comic would be better suited as a TV show.

io9 caught up with Eric Heisserer, whose other writing credits include this year's hit low-budget thriller Lights Out, Hours, The Thing, Final Destination 5 and The Nightmare on Elm Street reboot. The writer says he just couldn't see eye to eye with the studio about the direction a Sandman movie should take. Here's what Eric Heisserer had to say »

'Sandman' Loses Director and Star Joseph Gordon-Levitt

5 March 2016 1:51 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just yesterday, we reported that Warner Bros.' adaptation of Neil Gaiman's classic comic book Sandman had brought on a new writer in Eric Heisserer (Hours). The project seemed to finally be picking up steam. And that report from The Hollywood Reporter seemingly confirmed that Joseph Gordon-Levitt had finally decided to both direct and star in the movie. Today, that is no longer the case.

The actor has announced his exit from the project on his personal Facebook page. He sites creative differences with New Line as the reason for his departure. At this time, it isn't known who will come aboard to direct, and if that director will star in the movie as Joseph Gordon-Levitt had planned to do. Joseph Gordon-Levitt has this to say about leaving the project in the lurch.

"So, as you might know if you like to follow these sorts of things, a while back, »

'Sandman' Movie Brings in 'Final Destination 5' Writer

4 March 2016 5:45 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros.' adaptation of Neil Gaiman's classic comic book Sandman is getting closer to becoming a reality. The Hollywood Reporter has word that Eric Heisserer (Hours) has come aboard to write the screenplay, based on a treatment written by David S. Goyer. The treatment was written to help launch the search for a screenwriter, which has now been completed.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt came aboard to star and direct the Sandman adaptation back in December 2013, but he later admitted that he was only producing. Tom Hiddleston was being sought to play Morpheus, but his involvement was never confirmed. Now it seems that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to star, produce and direct the adaptation.

It is believed that the actor/director will play Morpheus, the personification of Dreams in a family known as The Endless, whose members represent other aspects of life such as Death, Delirium, Desire, Destruction, Despair and Destiny. »
