‘Stan & Ollie’ Director Jon S. Baird Hired For Marv Films Movie Prompting ‘Kingsman’ Speculation
Exclusive: Stan & Ollie director Jon S. Baird has been hired to co-write and direct an as yet untitled Marv Films movie, taking him off recently announced Mel Gibson-Shia Labeouf starrer Rothchild.

Matthew Vaughn’s UK outfit, known for the Kingsman and Kick-Ass franchises, confirmed Baird’s hire for an “untitled Marv Films movie” but wouldn’t reveal more at this stage.

Rumor is that Baird is in line to direct ‘Kingsman 3’ (the project is still untitled), despite Vaughn having helmed the previous films in the series. All parties are keeping tight-lipped on this, however.

It was only a couple of months ago that Baird was announced as director on hot Cannes package Rothchild, which scored multiple pre-sales on the Croisette. At the time, Gibson’s involvement in a film whose title evokes a wealthy Jewish family caused some consternation on social media but this is not thought to

‘The King’s Man’ First Trailer: Matthew Vaughn’s Super-Spy Franchise Gets a Flashy Prequel
Before the “Kingsman” film franchise wraps up with a long-teased third entry in the Taron Egerton and Colin Firth-starring series, director Matthew Vaughn is going back in time to explore the early days of the smooth-talking super-spy secret society. In “The King’s Man,” Vaughn digs deeper into the genesis of the Kingsman collective, as first imagined by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons in their comic book series of the same name.

Per the film’s official synopsis, the World War II-set film follows “a collection of history’s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds [who] gather to plot a war to wipe out millions, one man must race against time to stop them.” This time around, Ralph Fiennes and Harris Dickinson step into the shoes previously occupied Firth and Egerton, taking over as the elder Kingsman and his newest recruit.

Vaughn has had plenty of ideas to expand the “Kingsman” universe.

British Film Producers Fear Netflix and Streaming Wars Could Kill UK Indie Film

Netflix announced earlier this month it would be setting up a new production base at England’s Shepperton Studios, a new power move at a time when Disney, Apple, WarnerMedia, and more are all gearing up to launch their own streaming platforms to compete against Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and more. The streaming wars are nearly upon us and British film producers are worried what that means for the future of independent film in the UK. Several producers recently spoke to The Guardian expressing their fears that all of the attention on streamers will leave the UK film industry neglected.

Andy Paterson, who co-produced the Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman-starring drama “The Railway Man” and “Girl With a Pearl Earring,” said the amount of content needed to fill all of the various streaming platforms means there’s never been a better time to be a filmmaker or producer in Britain.

Doc Corner: Hitting the High Seas with ‘Maiden’ and ‘The Raft’

By Glenn Dunks

Did anybody see that Colin Firth movie about the amateur sailor who attempted to circumnavigate the world and failed miserably. It was called The Mercy, and while I never watched it, I did think of it as I watched Maiden. This is a film with such a remarkable true story that I couldn’t believe nobody had made a film out of it already but they had made The Mercy. Although I suppose one shouldn’t expect more: a movie about a male failure will almost always get made before that of a female success. But now we have Maiden, which puts a full stop at the end of that and seeks to settle a few more filmmaking blindspots with its oft-exhilarating telling of Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old rebel who in 1989 became the skipper of the first ever female crew to compete in the Whitbread Round the World boat race.

5 Of The Best: Submarine Movies

Signature Entertainment

This week, Matthias Schoenaerts, Colin Firth and co. take to the seas in the new underwater thriller Kursk: The Last Mission. The film, which debuted at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, where we first caught it, is based on the true story of the nuclear-powered Oscar-class K-141 sub, which, following two massive explosions, was sunk to the bottom of the nearly two decades ago.

The film is excellent, brought to the screen by talented Danish director Thomas Vinterberg, the screenplay based on the book Robert Moore’s book A Time to Die, which was released in shops in 2002, two years after the disaster.

In this feature, we take a look at the film and four other submarine features to have graced the silver screen in recent times, all of which are well worth seeking out.

Exclusive: Thomas Vinterberg, Lea Seydoux and Matthias Schoenaerts on Kursk: The Last Mission

Back at the Toronto International Film Festival, we had the immense pleasure of taking part in a junket that brought together three huge forces in European cinema: Danish filmmaker Thomas Vinterberg, Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts, and French superstar Lea Seydoux – and we weren’t disappointed.

Also starring Colin Firth and Max Von Sydow, Kursk: The Last Mission is a moving and gripping exploration beneath the sea, telling a brutal true story. We discussed the project in great length with those who brought it to our very screens – and you can watch the full video of our chats right below:

Synopsis

An explosion on a nuclear-powered Russian submarine kills most of the men aboard and causes the few survivors to huddle in waterlogged and oxygen deficient rear compartments, where they anxiously await rescue. It is a race against time with oxygen levels running low as the Russian government plans the best course of action,

Review Round-Up: “The Command” and “Nightmare Cinema”

As the weekend hits, it’s time to bring back the review round-up in order to cover a few more titles arriving in theaters. Today, we’ll be briefly discussing two particular genre efforts, each of them quite different from the other. The movies in question are the true life drama The Command (formerly known as Kursk on the festival circuit) as well as the anthology horror tale Nightmare Cinema. Both of these flicks offers up something different and may or may not be worth your time. That question is something I’ll attempt to answer right now, so let us dive in! The Command It’s impossible not to currently think about HBO’s miniseries Chernobyl while watching The Command. A high profile Russian tragedy that could have, if not been prevented, then reduced with less bureaucracy and corruption? Yeah, there are parallels. However, while the cable prestige program has drawn raves,
