Maniac Cop remake presses forward

Nicholas Winding Refn and William Lustig are to produce the remake of Maniac Cop...

The planned remake of Maniac Cop is now pressing ahead, it's being reported. 

The project is the result of a multi-studio deal that will see Hollywood’s Vendian Entertainment and France-based Wild Brunch team up with Space Rocket Nation (the company of director Nicolas Winding Refn). While this multi-year alliance of firms will facilitate first-look deals to produce commercials for up and coming talent, feature films are on the menu, the first of which will be this Maniac Cop remake which has been gestating for the past few years.

The film will update the 1988-1993 Maniac Cop horror trilogy directed by William Lustig featuring the signature lantern-jawed visage of the late Robert Z’Dar as the titular killer constabulary Matt Cordell, who escaped from prison to wantonly murder innocent people in uniform. The »

American Honey [Cannes 2016]

15 May 2016 9:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With every new Shia Labeouf movie, I wonder whether it would be more entertaining to see the film or watch Labeouf as he watches it. American Honey wasn’t on the bill when the former Transformers actor did a masochistic marathon of his filmography, but if he were to do another, this punishing and monotonous 165 minute-movie might be the one to make him snap.

Labeouf plays a James Franco-lite in the film, and director Andrea Arnold (Fish Tank) also seems to be emulating Spring BreakersHarmony Korine. In many ways, American Honey is like Gummo without the absurdist humor and Spring Breakers without the hallucinatory lyricism. It’s Kids for the post-subprime mortgage crisis generation.

Along with films like The Bling Ring, Dope, and Spring Breakers, there have been quite a few recent movies that use teenagers as a means to interrogate American capitalism – who it’s for, what »

Cannes Film Review: ‘American Honey’

14 May 2016 4:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mere minutes into “American Honey,” her scrappy, sprawling astonishment of a fourth feature, Andrea Arnold hits the audience with a song choice almost too perfect to work. As a girl’s gaze meets a boy’s across the packed aisles of a Midwestern Walmart, the euphoric Edm throb of Calvin Harris and Rihanna’s 2011 smash “We Found Love” hijacks the busy soundscape, setting a love story emphatically in motion by the time he hops up to dance on the checkout counter. “We found love in a hopeless place,” the song’s chorus ecstatically declares, over and over, as well it might — does it get more hopeless than Walmart, after all? It’s a gesture so brazenly big and romantically literal that it can’t help but have your heart, and it’s such an early, ebullient cinematic climax that Arnold dares repeat it two hours later, cranking up the song again in a more fraught, »

Indie Puzzler Four Sided Fantasy Coming To PlayStation 4 This Summer

12 May 2016 9:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ludo Land’s visually simple but beautiful puzzler Four Sided Fantasy will release on PlayStation 4 this summer, studio founder and developer Logan Fieth has announced via Sony’s PlayStation blog.

Describing it as a game that “players who enjoy puzzle games and discovery will really take to,” Fieth explains how Four Sided Fantasy‘s main mechanic asks players to solve its conundrums through the use of “screen wrap,” or wraparound, as it’s otherwise known – a term used to describe the absence of any boundaries on the edge of your screen, allowing objects to leave one side of the screen and appear on the other.

We’re making a game that I think players who enjoy puzzle games and discovery will really take to. Four Sided Fantasy is a wordless, seamless experience where you use screen wrap to solve puzzles in ways you never thought about before. You know how in Pac-Man, »

NBC picks up DC Comics workplace comedy Powerless, first stills and synopsis released

12 May 2016 12:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to various outlets, NBC has given a series order to Powerless, a workplace comedy similar to The Office that takes place in the DC Comics universe. And as if the news itself wasn’t exciting enough, we’ve also been given the show’s first synopsis and still images.

Though the show will feature heroes and villains from the pages of DC Comics, it will focus primarily on the everyday office workers of an insurance company forced to clean up after them. Those hapless (and, more likely than not, witless) citizens will be played by Vanessa Hudgens (Spring Breakers, Sucker Punch), Alan Tudyk (Firefly, Zootopia) and Danny Pudi (Community, Captain America: The Winter Soldier). Here’s what they’ll be up to according to the show synopsis:

Vanessa Hudgens stars as Emily, a spunky young insurance adjuster specializing in regular-people coverage against damage caused by the crime-fighting superheroes. It »

Film Review: ‘Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising’

4 May 2016 3:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Considering it’s another trouble-in-suburbia comedy of modest proportions, boasting no innovations in form or technique, it may seem odd to say that “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising” couldn’t — or at least wouldn’t — have been made a mere decade ago. Yet a distinctly current engagement with identity politics colors and complicates Nicholas Stoller’s rampantly rude, rowdy sequel to 2014’s squares-vs.-students farce: With sly sorority girls having replaced lunkheaded fratboys as the collective nemesis of Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne’s harried, hip-no-more homeowners, the film has a knowingly conflicted engagement with millennial-generation feminism that freshens its outlook even as it unevenly rejigs many of its predecessor’s gags. Still, while a subtly clawed Chloë Grace Moretz proves a worthy new foil, it’s Zac Efron’s tragicomic anatomy of a dudebro that remains this series’ sharpest asset.

Though its ribald antics (not to mention Efron’s copious »

Trailer Watch: Zachary Treitz and Kate Lyn Sheil’s Independent Civil War Drama, Men Go to Battle

3 May 2016 1:04 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Written by Zachary Treitz and Kate Lyn Sheil, and directed by Treitz, Men Go to Battle is an ambitious independent historical drama that tells the story of two quarreling brothers whose back-and-forth are interrupted by the Civil War. Here’s how the filmmakers synopsize the film, which stars Tim Morton, David Maloney and, from Spring Breakers, Rachel Korine: While most Americans predict that the Civil War will end by Christmas, Henry (Tim Morton) and Francis Mellon (David Maloney) are more concerned about braving another winter on their struggling rural Kentucky farm. The brothers have become suffocatingly close. Francis’ practical jokes become […] »

13 Superhero Movies Perfect for Justin Bieber

30 April 2016 8:25 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

On the back side of the Funky Bunch, we never imagined that Marky Mark would emerge as Mark Wahlberg, top marquee draw and an Oscar nominee. While DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince was a fun and popular pop act of the 80s, no one living through 1988 ever thought, "That Will Smith sure has box office gold written all over him!" Cut to thirty years later, and he too is a multiple Oscar nominee and one of today's top leading men. While Justin Timberlake hasn't exactly set the big screen ablaze, he's become a beloved institution amongst the hipster marketplace, as well as a sought out persona amongst all other demographics who love his comedy on Saturday Night Live, bathe in his music, or applaud his various turns at dramatic acting. He's the closet thing we have to Frank Sinatra today.

What I'm trying to say is, there's hope for Justin Bieber. »

King Cobra review: James Franco at his lurid best in gay porn shocker

22 April 2016 11:22 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The actor gives his most unhinged performance since Spring Breakers in Justin Kelly’s compelling film detailing the rise of porn star Brent Corrigan

As an actor, James Franco has two modes: committed and can’t-be-bothered. His bold work in Spring Breakers, 127 Hours and Pineapple Express falls into the first category; Oz the Great and Powerful and Werner Herzog’s misbegotten Queen of the Desert meanwhile feature Franco at his most lifeless. Luckily for film-maker Justin Kelly, Franco is at his brazen best in the dark gay porn saga King Cobra.

The film reunites the star with the director of I Am Michael for another gay-themed narrative based on real events. That, however, is where the similarities end.

Watch: Harmony Korine Returns to Miami in Nsfw Music Video For Rihanna’s ‘Needed Me’

20 April 2016 9:27 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

For those that have been waiting to see Harmony Korine‘s Spring Breakers follow-up, it’s looking less and less likely it will be The Trap, his long-gestating crime epic starring Idris ElbaBenicio Del Toro, Robert Pattinson, Al Pacino, and James Franco. However, he’s returned to Miami for what we’re considering a pseudo-sequel, directing the Nsfw music video for Rihanna‘s “Needed Me.”

As for The Trap, he tells Dazed Digital, “I was supposed to shoot it last year. We were two weeks out. I got as close to shooting as you could be, and then I had issues with one of the actors. We had to pause the film, and then the movie got pushed back on the dates. I don’t really want to go into specifics, but it was more of a personality thing with one of the actors. So, we put a halt »

Tribeca Film Review: ‘King Cobra’

17 April 2016 6:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“I like to think that I’m gay in my art and straight in my life,” Gay James Franco told Straight James Franco in a split-personality interview for Four Two Nine magazine last year. The trouble with the famously ambiguous actor’s revelation isn’t how one defines “gay,” but rather, what one makes of his “art” — the latest questionable example of which, a Skinemax-styled true crimer called “King Cobra,” yields his queerest role yet.

Aspiring to do for the brutal slaying of gay-porn producer Bryan Kocis what “Boogie Nights” did for the Wonderland murders, “King Cobra” is all smut and no soul, a tacky, superficially titillating reunion between Franco and “I Am Michael” director Justin Kelly that finds the “Sausage Party” star on the receiving end of a supersized kielbasa. Franco plays one of two hot-rod-obsessed, ex-hustler meatheads who literally killed for the right to shoot a movie with »

James Franco’s Gay Porn Project ‘King Cobra’ Premieres at Tribeca

17 April 2016 9:44 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

James Franco premiered his latest project, “King Cobra,” directed by Justin Kelly and starring Christian Slater and Keegan Allen with cameos from Molly Ringwald and Alicia Silverstone, at the Tribeca Film Festival Saturday night.

Inspired by a true story, Slater stars as Stephen, a gay porn producer behind the company King Cobra, who takes on a new star, Brent Corrigan (Garrett Clayton). When Corrigan wants out of his contract, Stephen refuses. The Viper Boys, two rival porn producers played by Franco and “Pretty Little Liars” star Allen, pledge to help Corrigan out, and decide to brutally murder Stephen.

Kelly knew it wouldn’t be easy to make a film about gay porn, and credits Franco with getting the movie off the ground.

“He knows that attaching himself to a project will help get it made,” Kelly told Variety. “So he’ll find people whose work he loves and he’ll »

Tribeca Film Review: ‘The Fixer’

16 April 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Very loosely inspired by his prior documentary about an Afghani guide to Western journalists (2009’s “Fixer: The Taking of Ajmal Naqshbandi”), Ian Olds’ “The Fixer” is a culture-clash drama in which an exotic new arrival quickly becomes enmeshed in the less savory undersides of a rural Northern California town. Though less overtly comedic, this insinuatingly low-key tale may for some recall “Inherent Vice,” as it’s similarly a droll ostensible mystery whose investigation (let alone resolution) takes a back seat to the revealing eccentricities of characters and communities encountered en route. Presence of James Franco and Melissa Leo in supporting roles should boost prospects for a movie with considerable offbeat appeal, if few obvious commercial angles.

While the titular subject of Olds’ docu was kidnapped and ultimately executed by the Taliban for abetting foreign media, here fictive Osman (Dominic Rains) has made it out alive. Aspiring to become a professional journalist himself, »

11 Best Spring Break Movies of All Time

10 April 2016 12:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Spring Break movies are a unique beast. While there might not be direct research into this, it seems that these films are offshoots of the "beach, blanket, bingo films" from the 1960s. As the genre really seemed to catch fire in the late 1970s and then in the 80s, the connection between the two is actually more acute than one might think.

The beach movies of the 1960s were simple, fun and represented All American values. The spring break movie, truthfully, hailing more from the 1980s than the 70s, are similar in that their characters are looking for fun and a good time. However, spring break films have a devilish side, and that makes for many moments of boobs and butts that my generation has never forgotten. Yes, when you have a Spring Break movie, you can expect to see some sex!

How could we ever forget some of these cinematic moments? »

Rick Ross and Skrillex May Have Conjured Up Something Suicide Squad Related

5 April 2016 8:54 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

We know that Oscar-winning composer Steven Price (Gravity, Fury) is scoring David Ayer's Suicide Squad, but now we may have a hint at what else might be on the soundtrack. Electronic music producer Skrillex debuted a collaboration with rapper Rick Ross laced with Suicide Squad references at Wav Nightclub last weekend. Take a listen: The lyrics are difficult to fully make out in this video, but I hear "Suicide Squad", "Gotham City," "Killer Croc," and "purple Lamborghini," among other things. The song sounds like a possibility for the title or end credits. With marketing expected to ramp up for the film in the coming months (expect new footage this weekend), it could just be a part of a promotional tie-in. Or maybe it's not a part of the project at all! Quentin Tarantino and Jamie Foxx previously brought Rick Ross into the fold for Django Unchained and "100 Black Coffins. »

Why Florida May Lose 'Ballers' and 'Bloodline' to Other State

This story first appeared in the April 8 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. To receive the magazine, click here to subscribe. Florida's year-round sunshine, versatile locations and robust infrastructure long have made the state a coveted destination for such series and films as Burn Notice and Spring Breakers. But so did the state's tax incentives program, which legislators in March decided against replenishing for a fourth consecutive year. As one Florida film commissioner put it, the conservative legislature isn't keen on giving "Hollywood handouts," and instead is betting on the region's built-in assets to continue to
