Sony’s Starman remake will have a younger cast than the original and a contemporary setting confirms director Shawn Levy

The news broke this April that a remake of John Carpenter’s 1984 sci-fi Starman is currently being worked up at Sony. Real Steel and Night At The Museum’s Shawn Levy is to direct and produce, joined by original producer Michael Douglas and Grace Of Monaco screenwriter Arash Amel on scripting duties.

While chatting to Levy about terrific new Netflix series Stranger Things, he gave us an update on Starman’s progress and confirmed that the new film will indeed have a contemporary setting:

Starman is halfway through being written. It is fucking cool and very much the story of the original but leans into the technology and the scientific awareness that we have now, which is radically different than what we had when John Carpenter made the original film. »

Cannes: How to Handle a Festival Bomb

17 May 2016 11:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

“When you come to Cannes, you’re prepared,” said Olivier Assayas on the smattering of boos following Monday’s press screening of his latest film, Personal Shopper. “You’re prepared for anything.” His Kristen Stewart-starring ghost story may have been the only competition title so far this festival to have been greeted with that most European of critical put-down, but it hardly ranks among the great Cannes maulings. Last year, it was Sea of Trees that sparked the reviewers' wrath, while 2014 gave us arguably the most famous contemporary turkey, curtain-raiser Grace of Monaco, the loud jeers from

5 Burning Questions About the Cannes Film Festival

10 May 2016 11:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood players will be watching the Cannes Film Festival intently this week. As the movie business decamps to the Côte d’Azur, here’s a look at five hot topics that will dominate the rosé-filled after-parties, red carpets and A-lister press conferences along the Croisette.

(1) How Active Will Harvey Weinstein Be?

For months, rumors have abounded that the Weinstein Company is in turmoil. The indie label cut staff last year and left the last Sundance and Toronto Film Festival without landing a major project. Film flops such as “Burnt” and “Jane Got a Gun,” as well as the weaker-than-expected results for Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight,” have further amplified mutterings that all is not well in Harvey’s kingdom. But regardless of rumors, Weinstein has always been a ringleader of Cannes — whether fighting with the director of “Grace of Monaco” or promising an Oscar nomination to Jake Gyllenhaal for “Southpaw. »

Cannes archives: Screen's Jury Grid 2014 - 'Mr Turner' sets record

9 May 2016 4:48 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

As Cannes approaches, Screen casts its eye back at the winners and losers of 2014 according to our jury of critics.

Each year, Screen International’s Jury Grid collates the verdicts of an international panel of critics to provide an impressively reliable prophecy of the year’s top prizes.

In 2014, the festival’s opening night film Grace Of Monaco may have caused something of a furore by upsetting Cannes regulars, the royal family of Monaco, but the main Competition was very much business as usual.

Mike Leigh topped the jury grid once again with Mr Turner [pictured], a biopic of eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner. Mr Turner, starring Timothy Spall, scored 3.6 out of 4 – the highest score ever in the history of the Jury Grid.

The film marked Leigh’s fifth film in Competition at Cannes, and though Spall won the best actor award, Leigh missed out on the Palme d’Or again. Instead, the festival »

Shawn Levy to remake Starman

3 April 2016 2:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that director Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Real Steel) has signed on to direct a remake of the 1984 sci-fi romance Starman, which will be scripted by Arash Amel (Grace of Monaco).

Directed by John Carpenter, the original movie starred Jeff Bridges as an alien who comes to Earth and assumes the identity of a woman’s (Karen Allen) dead husband in an effort to evade capture by the government. Coercing the woman into driving him cross country to a rendezvous point, a romance then blossoms between the two.

Levy, whose last directorial efforts were 2014’s Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb and This Is Where I Leave You, will also serve as a producer on the remake alongside Michael Douglas, who produced the original.

John Carpenter's Starman is next for the remake treatment

The director of Night At The Museum, Shawn Levy, is tackling a remake of John Carpenter's Starman...

The cinema of John Carpenter has already been heavily pillaged for remakes over the past decade or so, but up until now, Starman has been excused. However, plans are now afoot to revisit the 1984 sci-fi flick, that originally starred Jeff Bridges and Karen Allen.

The original Starman saw an alien visit Earth in response to a message from Nasa. He then takes on the body of Bridges, and a chase ensues. The new Starman is being panned by Arash Amel (Grace Of Monaco) with Michael Douglas reprising his position as producer.

Directing this time will be Shawn Levy, best known for the likes of Real Steel and the Night At The Museum trilogy. We're promised that the new film will be set in the 21st century, and thus brought up to date. »

'Starman' is getting remade by Shawn Levy because of course it is

1 April 2016 4:05 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The first film set I ever visited was for John Carpenter’s Starman. I was 13, and the film was shooting just outside Chattanooga, Tn, where I lived at the time. When I was leaving the set at the end of the day, the unit publicist (the great Peter J. Silbermann) gave me a copy of the script by Bruce A. Evans & Raynold Gideon and Dean Riesner, the first actual film script I ever read. It could have been anything I read first, but I’m glad that as I started try to break down structure and character and the crazy magic trick that is writing words on a page that then come to life on a film set, it was that script which I was studying. It’s a lovely piece of writing, and there’s a reason Jeff Bridges got nominated for an Oscar playing the lead role of »

Review: Sturdy, Grounded, But Not Quite Satisfying 'Standing Tall' Starring Catherine Deneuve

1 April 2016 2:02 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This is a reprint of our review from the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. Last year, the Cannes Film Festival got off to the worst possible start. The opening night slot has always had ups and downs (read our feature on the best and worst of them here), and for every "Moonrise Kingdom" or "Up," there was a "Da Vinci Code" or "Blindness," but "Grace Of Monaco" was something else: a rotten, ill-conceived biopic of Grace Kelly that hasn't just skipped U.S theaters entirely, it's actually premiering on Lifetime. Festival head Thierry Fremaux clearly had some making up to do with this year's opening night film, and he's eschewed big Hollywood stars for a more modest, homegrown effort in Emmanuelle Bercot's "Standing Tall," which also marks the first time since Diane Kurys' "A Man In Love" in 1987 that a film from a female director has kicked off Cannes. The result is a sturdy, »

1 April 2016 1:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Night at the Museum director Shawn Levy is on the verge of helming Columbia PicturesStarman remake, based on the John Carpenter sci-fi classic of the same name.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, it’s understood that the studio has drafted in Arash Amel (Erased, Grace of Monaco) to pen the screenplay, shifting the tale into the modern era. Michael Douglas, meanwhile, is attached to produce alongside Levy after working on the original more than three decades ago.

After careering into Earth with the intention of paying a visit, the extra-terrestrial assumes the form of a woman’s dead husband, eventually directing her toward a strange rendezvous site before it perishes. Jeff Bridges and Karen Allen anchored the ’80s feature, with the former earning an Oscar nomination at the time »

'Real Steel' Director to Helm 'Starman' Remake

1 April 2016 12:50 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Cue the David Bowie track, 'cause it looks like we're about due for the stars!

According to THR, the 1980s sci-fi film Starman (which starred Jeff Bridges and Karen Allen) is getting remade, and helming this project is Real Steel and Night At The Museum director Shawn Levy. Producing the film alongside him will be Michael Douglas, who also produced the original 1984 film, which was directed by John Carpenter.

Writing the script for Starman is Arash Amel, a relatively new talent with less than a handful of films to his name. On that list, however is a Nicole Kidman/Tim Roth film called Grace Of Monaco, which was released in 2014, but was not too well received by fans.

The synopsis for the original film is as follows:

"Answering a Nasa message intended for aliens, a space being tries to contact mankind, but an American missile grounds his ship. Scrambling, the »

Shawn Levy To Direct Remake Of John Carpenter's 'Starman'

1 April 2016 10:27 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If Jeff Nichols' excellent "Midnight Special" spurs Hollywood to make more Amblin-esque, '70s/'80s era science fiction that's as big on character as it is concept, that would be a great thing. However, the industry is still in the business of redos, so while getting an original concept like Nichols' picture made will still likely involve jumping through a lot of hoops, Hollywood is just going to do another version of John Carpenter's "Starman." Read More: The Essentials: 7 Great John Carpenter Movies THR reports that Shawn Levy, the guy behind "Night At The Museum," "Real Steel," and the "Pink Panther" remake, will helm the picture. Arash Amel ("Erased," "Grace Of Monaco") will pen the script that follows an alien from another world who takes the form of a woman's dead husband and falls in love with her, all while on the run from the government.
