Tobis Film to return to production

Tobis Film to return to production
German distributor of Southpaw, Transcendence to return to production.

German distributor Tobis Film is to return to production after more than a decade’s absence following the arrival of two new shareholders, Timm Oberwelland and Peter Eiff.

According to Tobis - distributor of titles including 12 Years A Slave, American Hustle and upcoming Antoine Fuqua action-drama Southpaw - the company’s new shareholder structure will see the outfit become more active in the production of German-language films and international co-productions alongside the company’s core activities of film distribution, home entertainment and TV licensing in the German-speaking territories.

Founded in 1972 by the late film producer-distributor Horst Wendlandt, Tobis Film had made its first foray into production after StudioCanal took a 60% stake in the Berlin-based company in February 2000.

Under the management of Haig Balian and Albert Wiederspiel, the renamed Tobis StudioCanal (Tsc) was involved via its in-house production arm in the co-production of such local titles as Edward Berger’s [link

'Her' and 'Captain Phillips' Win at the 2014 Writers Guild Awards

The Writers Guild of America (WGA) handed out their annual awards tonight and it was Spike Jonze winning for his original screenplay, Her, while Billy Ray took the adaptation top prize for Captain Phillips, based on the book "A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy Seals, and Dangerous Days at Sea". Both screenplays are nominated for Oscars this year and, in fact, the Original Screenplay nominations match up exactly, but in the Adapted category John Ridley's screenplay for 12 Years a Slave was one of many deemed ineligible due to WGA qualifying rules. So if you think this makes for an "open and shut" case at the Oscars, that's definitely something to consider. That said, the win for Jonze I see as a very big deal in a tough field of competitors. I have Her at the top of my predictions in the Original Screenplay category and this only solidifies my opinion further,

Snubs Abound! 2014 Writers Guild Award Nominees Announced!

Both the Writers Guild of America, West (Wgaw) and East (Wgae) have announced nominations for the Writers Guild Awards. The biggest omission? Oscar front-runner "12 Years A Slave!" According to IndieWire, "12 Years A Slave, Fruitvale Station, Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, God Loves Uganda, 20 Feet From Stardom, and The Square are indeed ineligible for a WGA nomination because they were not written under the guild's jurisdiction."

Whatever that means! If you're wondering what happened, read the Writers Guild's rules:

Feature films eligible for a Writers Guild Award were exhibited theatrically for at least one week in Los Angeles during 2013 and were written under the WGA.s Minimum Basic Agreement (Mba) or under a bona fide collective bargaining agreement of the Writers Guild of Canada, Writers Guild of Great Britain, Irish Playwrights & Screenwriters Guild, or the New Zealand Writers Guild. Theatrical screenplays produced under the jurisdiction of the WGA or an affiliate

Allen Unstoppable, Three Major Snubs: Writers Guild of America Announces Their 2014 Nominees

WGA Awards 2014 nominations: Woody Allen, ‘American Hustle’ in; ’12 Years a Slave,’ ‘Blue Is the Warmest Color’ ineligible (photo: Cate Blanchett and Woody Allen on the ‘Blue Jasmine’ set) The Writers Guild of America has announced the nominees for the 2014 WGA Awards. The lists — adapted and original screenplay, documentary screenplay — mostly feature the expected titles, in addition to a handful of surprises chiefly because several of this year’s top contenders for screenplay awards have failed to meet the WGA’s strict eligibility rules. Among the out-of-contention screenplays for the 2014 WGA Awards were John Ridley’s 12 Years a Slave, Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope’s Philomena, Asghar Farhadi’s The Past, Abdellatif Kechiche and Ghalia Lacroix’s Blue Is the Warmest Color, William Nicholson’s Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, Peter Morgan’s Rush, Destin Daniel Cretton’s Short Term 12, and Ryan Coogler’s Fruitvale Station.

WGA Nominations: Oscar and the Eligibility Factor (Analysis)

WGA Nominations: Oscar and the Eligibility Factor (Analysis)
Writers Guild of America’s just-announced nominees have reason for optimism in terms of the upcoming Academy Awards, but they come with a load of footnotes and caveats.

The WGA has a pretty solid track record at predicting Oscar winners, though as far as nominations, there are more discrepancies, due to the guild’s eligibility rules.

Original screenplay candidates are David O. Russell and Eric Singer for “American Hustle”; perennial fave Woody Allen with his 21st nom, “Blue Jasmine”; Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack, “Dallas Buyers Club”; Spike Jonze, “Her”; and Bob Nelson, “Nebraska.”

Adapted screenplay: Tracy Letts, “August: Osage County”; Richard Linklater, Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke, “Before Midnight”; Billy Ray, “Captain Phillips”; Peter Berg, “Lone Survivor”; and Terence Winter, “The Wolf of Wall Street.”

Many of these contenders will be mentioned again when Oscar noms are announced Jan. 16. But there will undoubtedly be some changes, due to Writers Guild restrictions.

The Writers Guild Of America Nominations Have Been Announced

Earlier today saw the announcement of the Writers Guild of America‘s nominations for Best Original, Adapted, and Documentary Screenplay for 2013. Of the major guilds (Producers Guild, Directors Guild, etc.), these are usually the awards taken the least seriously due to their silly rules that exclude several of the top contenders each year. This year, major casualties of their rules included 12 Years a Slave (which is on the fast-track to winning the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar), Philomena, and Fruitvale Station. However, this wouldn’t be the first time a disqualified screenplay has gone on to win an Oscar, as we’ve seen previously with Django Unchained and The King’s Speech.

The exclusion of some of these nominees has led to a bit of randomness in their selections, particularly in the Adapted Screenplay category, where we find surprises like August: Osage County and Lone Survivor, two films that were of pretty poor quality.

Writers Guild Awards: Nominations for 'Her,' 'American Hustle,' 'August: Osage County'
The Writers Guild of America award nominations are out, but don’t expect to learn much about the Oscar race from these shortlists.

Too many major screenplays are ineligible for the guild prize, since the organization only honors writers who are union members or films that were made under the auspices of a guild agreement — excluding many foreign and independent movies.

Among those disqualified this year: John Ridley’s script for 12 Years a Slave — considered a frontrunner for the adapted screenplay Oscar — and Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope’s Philomena — another strong contender for that Academy Award. In the original screenplay category,

2014 WGA Nominations Find 'Llewyn Davis' Snubbed Again, 'Dallas Buyers Club' Gains Momentum

The Writers Guild of America (WGA) has announced the nominees for the 2014 WGA Awards and, as always, there will be Oscar contending screenplays that weren't eligible due to WGA qualifying rules. This year some of the ineligible scripts include 12 Years a Slave, Rush, Fruitvale Station and Philomena (via HitFix). The absence of such titles make the Oscar race a little more interesting, but if you think Lone Survivor is going to get a nomination (as much as I like seeing it recognized) over 12 Years a Slave guess again. In fact, looking at the nominations compared to my current Oscar predictions for Adapted and Original Screenplay you're going to find few differences. In the Original category the biggest difference is yet another snub for Inside Llewyn Davis, which was looked over yesterday by the Producers Guild and again today by the WGA, and once again, in its place we find Dallas Buyers Club,

WGA Nominations 2014: 'American Hustle,' 'Her,' 'Lone Survivor' in the Running

The Oscar race gets more interesting by the day!

The Writers Guild of America unveiled their film nominations today, and among the set are a few surprises - as well as some notable snubs.

In the original screenplay category, mortal lock Woody Allen received his 21st WGA nomination for "Blue Jasmine," while Spike Jonze earned his first for "Her." Rounding out the rest of the field were Eric Warren Singer and David O. Russell for "American Hustle," Craig Borten & Melisa Wallack for "Dallas Buyers Club," and Bob Nelson for "Nebraska."

One high-profile movie left out in the cold is Joel and Ethan Coen's "Inside Llewyn Davis." With a snub from the Producers Guild earlier this week, the critically-acclaimed tale of the '60s folk music scene is losing Oscar momentum.

The adapted screenplay category was more muddled this year, with likely Oscar contenders "12 Years a Slave," "Fruitvale Station," and
