Amazon’s ‘The Last Tycoon’ Screens in Monte Carlo After Public Pilot-Rating Process

18 June 2017 12:28 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Monte Carlo, Monaco – Roy Price, global head of content for Amazon Prime Video, loves author F. Scott Fitzgerald. That’s key to the tone of “The Last Tycoon,” the big-budget series that debuts on Amazon on July 28 after a successful pilot run last year.

Originally developed for HBO by writer-director Billy Ray and showrunner Christopher Keyser, the nine-episode show, based on the final unfinished novel by the author of “The Great Gatsby,” found a home at Amazon after HBO passed on the project. Since then, Price has been crucial to the extent to which the novel is reflected in the series.

“HBO was saying, ‘We are not even sure we want to call this “The Last Tycoon” anymore. We don’t know that we are getting an advantage by referencing a Fitzgerald novel that is that old,'” Keyser said at the Monte Carlo Television Festival, where “Tycoon” is launching in Europe.

Ghost in the Shell anime reboot announced

10 April 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Publisher Kodansha and Japanese animation company Production I.Gare collaborating to create a new Ghost in the Shell anime project. The film will serve as a reboot and is set to be co-directed by Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex series) and Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed).

This news follows on from the release of the live-action movie starring Scarlett Johansson, which is going to cost Paramount in the region of $60 million following its underperformance at the box office, something the studio has put down to the controversy surrounding the whitewashing of several of its characters.

Japanese audiences praise Ghost in the Shell remake and are happy with Scarlett Johansson’s casting

10 April 2017 4:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rupert Sanders’ controversial (in some circles) adaptation of Ghost in the Shell has received its fair share of good reviews in the West [read our review here], despite the ‘white-washing’ claims hanging over it. However, it hasn’t connected with audiences domestically. Its opening weekend of $19 million was very disappointing considering its $110 million budget, and the audience dropped 60% in week two. Ghost in the Shell is doing better internationally ($92 million at the time of writing), and the film has now opened in its original home country of Japan where its being received very favourably.

Yahoo! Movies Japan rated the movie 3.5, praising the film’s visuals but not so much its story. The Hollywood Reporter spoke to some Japanese audience members who echoed that statement.

7 April 2017 4:02 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After years in development, Hollywood’s live-action Ghost in the Shell finally hit cinemas this past month, although it failed to live up to expectations financially and is looking at a loss of around $60 million – put down to the whitewashing controversy surrounding Scarlett Johansson’s casting as The Major.

Before Johansson came on board the project, another actress was being lined up for the lead in Margot Robbie, and we know have a look at some early concept art from Jeff Simpson and Nivanh Chanthara featuring the Suicide Squad star as the character…

“I spent a tiny amount of time doing pre-production work for the new Ghost in the Shell,” said Simpson. “These were done back in 2013? 2014? When Margot Robbie was gonna be the lead. Only spent a few days on it, but it was fun.”
