Warner Bros. Taps Spider-Man: Homecoming Scribes To Helm Flashpoint

Barry Allen has finally found a new director. Or directors, according to Variety.

Spider-Man: Homecoming scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein have officially been handed the keys to Flashpoint, Warner’s long-in-development standalone movie featuring Ezra Miller’s Scarlett Speedster.

In doing so, they’ve become the third (and hopefully final) directing team to have a crack at Flash, given Dope filmmaker Rick Famuyiwa left the spinoff project in 2016 due to creative differences – ditto for Seth Grahame-Smith (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) who was initially expected to direct from his own script.

The appointment of Daley and Goldstein has been long on the cards, it seems, as Warner Bros. executives were wary of announcing a replacement(s) so soon after Famuyiwa’s departure – not to mention the fact that Ezra Miller was busy filming Justice League and fellow WB property, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

Exclusive Interview – Film editor Kevin Tent on Downsizing, his directorial debut Crash Pad, and more

Red Stewart chats with film editor Kevin Tent on Downsizing, his directorial debut Crash Pad, and more…

The entertainment industry is full of fascinating people working behind the scenes to ensure audiences get the best quality experience from whatever venue they are enduring, often with little recognition. In the film sector, in particular, it seems that the only crew members to be acknowledged are the directors and producers.

One of these unsung roles is the film editor, and we at Flickering Myth had the privilege to speak to an Academy Award nominated one called Kevin Tent. Tent has been working as a film editor since the early 1990s, getting his foot in the door thanks in part to famed film producer Roger Corman. Though he has worked with a variety of filmmakers over his career, Tent’s most frequent collaborator remains director Alexander Payne, whose latest film Downsizing hit theaters Friday.

Twelve Unsinkable Facts for Titanic’s 20th AnniversaryTwelve Unsinkable Facts for Titanic’s 20th AnniversaryKurt Anthony12/19/2017 10:00:00 Am

“It’s been 84 years….”

Actually, it’s been 20 years! James Cameron’s record-breaking blockbuster Titanic celebrates its 20th anniversary today and we know you’re frozen with excitement.

A chilling tale of romantic disaster, Titanic combines the fictitious love story of Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet) and Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) with the untimely fate of the R.M.S. Titanic, one of history’s most famous ships.

Originally an elaborate plan to obtain funding for deep-sea filming expeditions, Cameron has stated that he made Titanic because he wanted to dive to the real wreck. As the writer, director, co-producer, and co-editor of the film, Cameron ended up spending more time with the ship than its actual passengers.

Filmed on a production budget of $200M, Titanic was the most expensive movie ever made at the time.

Joel David Moore to direct remake of Korean horror-thriller Hide and Seek

Cj Entertainment has announced that Joel David Moore (Avatar, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story) has been tapped to direct the company’s remake of the 2013 hit Korean social horror-thriller Hide and Seek.

Moore, who most recently directed the dramedy Youth in Oregon starring Frank Langella, Billy Crudup and Christina Applegate, will write an adapted feature English-language screenplay for Hide and Seek in addition to directing.

It follows a man searching for his long-lost brother who stumbles upon a secret world of squatters living in the homes of unsuspecting tenants – a revelation that becomes all the more menacing when his home becomes the next target.

Hide and Seek is a sharp, sophisticated thriller that created a lasting imprint on me,” said Joel David Moore. “I wanted to
