South Africa’s Sibs Shongwe-La Mer Tapped to Direct Cassian Elwes-Produced ‘Meridian’ (Exclusive)

South Africa’s Sibs Shongwe-La Mer Tapped to Direct Cassian Elwes-Produced ‘Meridian’ (Exclusive)
Fast-rising South African helmer Sibs Shongwe-La Mer has been tapped to direct “Meridian,” produced by Cassian Elwes and Susan Carter Hall.

Based on an original screenplay by Henderson Hall and Karolina Waclawiak, it’s the story of a priceless Picasso that goes missing from a Nazi bunker after WWII, only to resurface decades later in the small American town of Meridian.

Shongwe-La Mer describes the film as “a beautiful ode to cinema” and “classic Hollywood.” “That Hollywood is the Hollywood that made me fall in love with films,” he says.

Shongwe-La Mer says he met Elwes in L.A. after the AFI Fest screening of his acclaimed debut, “Necktie Youth,” which premiered at the Berlinale in 2015. “Cassian Elwes is a true hero of mine,” he says. “From ‘Blue Valentine’ to ‘Dallas Buyers Club,’ these are pictures that move me to the point that they remind me why I want to make films.

Stranger Things’ Charlie Heaton says The New Mutants “going full-fledged horror”

Having originally been slated to open in theaters this weekend, we now still have some 16 months to wait before we get to see 20th Century Fox’s X-Men spinoff The New Mutants.

Having been delayed twice, Fox has now taken the decision to “overhaul” the movie with up to 50% reshoots, reportedly inserting new characters, as well as ramping up the horror elements. And, according to Stranger Things star Charlie Heaton – who plays the character of Cannonball – Fox and director Josh Boone are looking to take the movie into “full-fledged horror” territory.

“It’s basically about these mutants in a facility for damaged mutants,” Heaton told EW. “It’s a story about these characters coming to grips with who they are and it’s a horror X-Men movie, which we haven’t seen before. I feel like, for an X-Men movie, yeah, I think they’re going full-fledged horror. Without saying

‘Krystal’ Film Review: Rosario Dawson Bewitches in Baffling Farce

‘Krystal’ Film Review: Rosario Dawson Bewitches in Baffling Farce
The comic drama “Krystal,” marking William H. Macy’s third time out as a feature director, is so baffling that it must be appreciated at least for its ability to defy all logic. Written by Will Aldis — as though he had gobbled up “Fried Green Tomatoes,” “The Good Girl,” and “Rushmore,” then gargled with bleach and regurgitated the mess on the page — the film tells the story of an 18-year-old boy with a heart that beats too fast (literally), who falls in love with a former junkie prostitute who’s trying to clean up her life.

Taylor Ogburn (Nick Robinson, “Love, Simon”) is a fanciful guy who’s been known to cross signals and get lost in his daydreams, as evidenced in a flashback where he reads one of his dad’s porno mags and imagines the devil walking out of its pages, attempting to chase Taylor down. The animation of the devil here must be singled out for its vision. It had me hoping “Krystal” might become a surrealist tale. But it didn’t.

Yes, the appearance of the devil and Taylor’s horrified reaction to him signals the guilt is strong in this one. And despite his father Wyatt (Macy) informing Taylor when he was a child that God, the devil, and Santa Claus do not exist, Taylor insists on believing in fictions and fairy tales as a young adult, which further fuels his anxiety, as he’s incessantly striving to do what’s “right.”

When Taylor sees Krystal (Rosario Dawson) walk in from the ocean — in just a wet white t-shirt (no bra) and panties — he’s so struck by her beauty that he nearly dies. Literally. That Taylor develops an unshakeable crush on Krystal for saving his life and taking him to the hospital seems natural. She’s beautiful, a blank slate, a savior in his naïve eyes. But everything that follows this improbable meeting grows so absurd that I had to pause the screener I was watching, go back, and make sure I’d seen what I thought I’d seen, which is, in some ways, admirable that this narrative could keep me guessing so much.

Taylor goes to extreme lengths to woo Krystal immediately, and with every attempt, hijinks ensue: He pretends he’s an alcoholic to infiltrate an AA meeting, and his boss (Kathy Bates) asks to be his sponsor. He sees a biker guy, Bo (Rick Fox), in a leather jacket at the AA meeting deliver a speech about being down and out and rising above it all, and Taylor becomes him, even buying a motorcycle and using Bo’s speech word-for-word to impress Krystal, like he’s Wally Brando or something. (Shout-out to “Twin Peaks: The Return” fans.)

Watch Video: How William H. Macy Tells Felicity Huffman He Doesn't Like Her Acting (Exclusive)

Macy’s strengths with this film lay in the scenes that play out like a stage production of a classic farce, generally when Taylor, his mom (Felicity Huffman) and dad, and his brother Campbell (Grant Gustin, “The Flash”) trade banter in their quaint, suburban home. Characters speak over one another, jostling for their own screen time, while Macy blocks the scene with each family member moving round the room, creating some much-needed dynamic action.

And the only time we get a hint that director Macy understands that Taylor’s newfound identities are truly dumbfounding is when this family razzes him endlessly about his puppy love. It had me wishing the whole film were just a single-location encounter of the family meeting Krystal and her 16-year-old son Bobby (Jacob Latimore) for dinner.

Watch Video: Watch Kumail Nanjiani Ask William H. Macy a Really Good Question

We do get that scene later on, and it’s appropriately bonkers, with some big reveals and a chance for Huffman to yelp curse words and quickly apologize for the language, but Macy leaves that drama too quickly, focusing for some reason on auxiliary characters, like William Fichtner’s Dr. Farley, a pot-smoking incompetent physician who always seems to be available to treat Taylor — for both his heart condition and a stab wound inflicted by Krystal’s ex Willie (T.I.).

And while Krystal is the title character, she’s also the least understood of them all, which could potentially have made the film funnier if Macy called more attention to the fact that all of these people are projecting their own thoughts, feelings, and fantasies upon one of the few non-white women in this Southern town. But instead, Macy has Krystal giving in to Taylor’s unfounded affections, with a moment so bizarre that my jaw dropped in a mix of surprise and nausea. “If you don’t kiss me right now,” begins Krystal’s sudden sexual declaration to Taylor as she’s peeking out the window, keeping watch for her violent, controlling ex.

Not to oversell this film or endorse it, but I can imagine John Waters watching “Krystal,” vacillating between boredom and banal amusement, remarking, “Oh well, that’s something.” Because Krystal is definitely… something.

Jon Hamm was reportedly going to appear as Mister Sinister in The New Mutants prior to the reshoots

Earlier this week it was revealed that 20th Century Fox has once again pushed back the release of The New Mutants, with the X-Men spinoff reportedly set to be completely “overhauled” with up to fifty percent of the movie reshot ahead of its latest release date in August 2019.

We know that these reshoots will include the addition of several new characters, but it seems they’ll also be removing one too – Mister Sinister, as played by Mad Men’s Jon Hamm.

According to The Tracking Board, The New Mutants would have featured the Essex Corporation, which you may recall was teased in the X-Men: Apocalypse post-credits scene, and would have featured a tag of its own with Jon Hamm making an appearance as Nathaniel Essex, a.k.a. the supervillain Mister Sinister.

Instead, the site is reporting that the post-credits scene for The New Mutants will now feature Antonio Banderas

Fox could be ‘overhauling’ The New Mutants, reshooting nearly fifty percent of the film

20th Century Fox announced back in January that they would be delaying the release of The New Mutants. The reason? The studio wanted to do “significant reshoots”, and also add a few more characters into the fray. Fans were certainly bummed out, and even the cast chimed in over the past few months expressing both understanding, and disappointment. Now, we have word of even more delays. The film was originally pushed back to February 2019 (from April 2018), but is now delayed all the way to August of next year.

So, in the words of Jerry Seinfeld: What’s the deal? Should we be worried? According to comicbook.com, Fox could be planning on reshooting nearly Half Of The Movie. This seems to stem from the studio’s desire to make a ‘scarier’ film, which ultimately prompted the decision to ‘overhaul’ it. This has apparently led to “creative differences” between the studio and Josh Boone,

X-Men: Dark Phoenix and New Mutants Release Dates Get Delayed Again

At one point, 20th Century Fox was planning on releasing three X-Men movies this year, The New Mutants, Deadpool 2 and X-Men: Dark Phoenix. But now it will only be one. Earlier this year, the studio pushed The New Mutants from April 13, 2018 to February 22, 2019, and now it's getting pushed again to August 20, 2019, while X-Men: Dark Phoenix is pushed from its plum November 2, 2018 slot to a Thursday slot on February 14, 2019. The studio has also pushed the highly-anticipated Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody from its Christmas Day release to November 2, 2018.

As of now, that leaves Christmas Day rather wide open, with just Disney's Mary Poppins Returns slated for release on that date. Warner Bros. also set that date as a placeholder for an untitled "event film" but since there is no indication as to what that may be yet, it may ultimately just get taken off the schedule.

Fox pushes back X-Men: Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants

Fox had big plans for the X-Men franchise in 2018, with the studio originally planning to release a triple-header in The New Mutants, Deadpool 2 and X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

However, back in January, the studio announced that it was pushing back the release of The New Mutants from April 2018 to February 2019 – with the film set to undergo “significant reshoots”, including the addition of a brand new character – and now we have word of more delays.

Firstly, The New Mutants has been delayed a further six months, and will now arrive on August 2nd, 2019, while Simon Kinberg’s directorial debut X-Men: Dark Phoenix has been pushed back from its original November 2nd release date and will now arrive on February 14th 2019.

The Valentine’s Day 2019 date was originally earmarked for the Channing Tatum-headlined Gambit movie, which will apparently arrive on June 7th 2019 (until it is pushed back again).

Brazilian YouTube Sensation KondZilla To Direct Netflix Original Series ‘Sintonia’

Netflix is working on a new original series with Brazilian YouTube creator KondZilla and Brazilian production house, Losbragas. The series, called Sintonia, will follow three friends growing up in a “favela” (essentially, a poverty-stricken town) just outside of Sao Paulo.

KondZilla, whose real name is Konrad Dantas, created the series, which he will also direct. His background lies in creating and producing electronic music videos, of which there are easily hundreds on his YouTube channel. Dantas has over 29 million subscribers on the video platform, making him one of the most popular YouTube creators in Brazil. Some of the music from his channel, Dantas told Variety, will appear in the Netflix series.

Dantas comes from just outside of Sao Paulo, like Sintonia’s central characters and Alice Braga, an actor who also heads up Losbragas along with Felipe Braga, a director and screenwriter, and producer Rita Moraes. The team previously worked

Anya Taylor-Joy says delay of X-Men spinoff The New Mutants is “frustrating”

In January, it was announced that 20th Century Fox has decided to push back the release of the X-Men spinoff The New Mutants from this coming April to February 2019.

The official reason given was to move it out of the way of Deadpool 2, but rumours suggested that the film – marketed heavily as a horror – was simply not scary enough. It was later rumoured that the film will undergo “significant” reshoots, even going so far as to introduce a new character entirely, and now it seems that has been confirmed by actress Anya Taylor-Joy, who has spoken to The Playlist about the delay, describing it as “frustrating” and “disappointing”.

“Well, the only thing that I could say, without being in trouble, is that it being delayed is disappointing, frustrating in fact, because we were all very excited for it to be released on April 13th, and I don’t mean just disappointing for me,

New Mutants Star Talks Frustrating Delay and Adding That New Character

When 20th Century Fox delayed the release date for New Mutants in January, pushing it nearly a year from April 13, 2018 to February 22, 2019, it wasn't terribly surprising as these things happen all the time. What was surprising was a report that surfaced in late February, which revealed that director Josh Boone is adding a new character to the movie, and while the identity of that character has yet to be announced, Anya Taylor-Joy did confirm this new character will be present. Here's what she had to say in a recent interview, defending the reshoots that have yet to take place.

"I do think that there is a great responsibility to make sure the movie is done right and that we deliver the fans something that they can all feel happy about and excited about. So, I don't think it being delayed is a bad thing because it's definitely more important to

New Mutants Reshoots Will Add a New Character

The New Mutants is going in for reshoots and a new character is being thrown into the mix. Fox was originally supposed to be releasing three X-Men related movies this year, with Deadpool 2 and X-Men: Dark Phoenix still on their release slate. However, New Mutants was bumped back by nearly a year so that Fox and director Josh Boone can rework the movie after some test screenings reportedly didn't go over so well. So, Boone will be doing some reshoots and a new report reveals that those reshoots will add a new character to the movie.

Reshoots are pretty common these days, but this doesn't sound too typical. It sounds like the reshoots being done on The New Mutants are rather significant, especially since they're going to add in a new character. As for who this character will be? That's anyone's guess at this point. Based on the teaser trailer

X-Men: The New Mutants to undergo significant reshoots, will add an extra character

Last month 20th Century Fox announced that it has decided to push back the release of its X-Men spinoff The New Mutants almost a year, with the Josh Boone-directed film now set to open in February 2019 rather than April of this year.

Officially, the reason given was to “avoid an overlap with X-Men movies in certain overseas marketplace, where Mutants and Deadpool 2 would have been in theaters at the same time,” although rumours suggested that the film simply wasn’t scary enough, given that it has been marketed as a horror.

Well, whatever the real reason may be, what we do now know is that the movie is set to undergo significant reshoots this summer, with THR reporting that the additional photography will be used to insert a new character into the film. Whether this is a new member of the New Mutants themselves, or perhaps another villain, remains to be seen.

Bizzers Like “Sound” of South-South Co-Prods

Bizzers Like “Sound” of South-South Co-Prods
When veteran producer Neil Brandt of South Africa’s Fireworx Media decided to set up shop in Brazil in 2015, he didn’t worry that the company’s creative vision would be lost in translation.

Though the two countries don’t share a common tongue, they have poignant similarities. Regional powerhouses and bulwarks of the Brics trade bloc, both are nations faced with rampant inequality that’s nonetheless proven to be fertile ground for their creative minds.

“There are an enormous amount of stories to told in both countries,” says Brandt. “There’s friction in these societies. Where there’s friction, there’s sparks, and where there are sparks, there are stories.”

For “The Sound of Animals Fighting,” an ambitious South Africa-Brazil co-prod directed by fast-rising South African helmer Sibs Shongwe-La Mer, there was a natural entry point for a film that travels from the gritty streets of Johannesburg to the underworld of Sao Paolo. Taking inspiration

Maisie Williams discusses the delay and “frightening” tone of The New Mutants

Currently doing the press rounds for Aardman Animation’s Early Man (read our review here), Maisie Williams has been addressing the almost-year long delay for Josh Boone’s mutant asylum horror, The New Mutants.

When Collider spoke to the actress about the movie being pushed back from April 13, 2018 to February 22nd , 2019, she had the following to say:

“It was always a really quick turn around, and there was always battles of how they were going to manage it. We finished in September and they were going to release in April and there’s- it’s a mutant film, there’s a lot of effects. There’s a lot of work that goes into the movie. They really make the movie after we finish shooting, so there was always kind of a bit nervous, really. I know how long this sort of thing takes on Game of Thrones and I know
