Studio chairman-ceo Jim Gianopulos announced the news at CinemaCon on Wednesday afternoon as the studio presented its slate of films to theater owners gathered in Las Vegas for their annual convention.
A Quiet Place was a much-needed success for the studio, which has endured a tough run at the box office for more than a year. It is the first film that went into production after Gianopulos...
The potential series is based on the New York Times report about the group published last year. The report, authored by Barry Meier, featured interviews with multiple women who said the purported self-help group, led by Keith Raniere, recruited women to serve as “slaves” and branded them with Raniere’s initials.
No writer is attached yet, but Woodward will executive produce along with Megan Ellison, Sue Naegle and Susan Goldberg of Annapurna.
The group has come under renewed interest in recent weeks, after Raniere was arrested in Mexico last month on charges of sex trafficking. “Smallville” star Allison Mack, who was identified as Raniere’s top lieutenant in the Times report, was arrested last week.
Screenwriter James Vanderbilt has written the script to adapt the book. King originally wrote the novel under the pseudonym Richard Bachman.
Vanderbilt will also produce the adaptation with Bradley Fischer and William Sherak via their Mythology Entertainment banner. Tracey Nyberg will exec produce.
“The Long Walk” is set in a future dystopian America and follows the contestants of a grueling walking contest, held annually by the totalitarian government of the United States of America. Contestants must maintain a pace of four miles per hour, and if they drop below it they will be executed — the race ends when only one contestant is alive.
“After careful consideration we have decided not to move forward with a second season of Here and Now,” HBO said in a statement to Deadline. “We thank Alan for his dedication to innovative storytelling, and we look forward to his next endeavor.”
Here and Now, which starred Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter, stemmed from Ball’s close relationship with the previous HBO regimes. It was a rare miss for the Oscar and Emmy winner, creator of HBO’s signature series True Blood and Six Feet Under and executive producer of Cinemax’s biggest hit Banshee. In addition to a lukewarm reception from critics, Here and Now also drew modest viewership for an HBO drama series, averaging 300,000-400,000 Live+same day viewers for the premiere telecast.
Shyamalan told the audience at CinemaCon at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas that “Glass” is the “first truly grounded comic book movie.”
Jackson added, “It’s about time I got the title role in my own motherf—ing movie.”
All four stars appeared on the stage, and the footage set up Paulson as a psychologist dealing with the three other characters, who she notes all believe that they are superheroes. What followed was a series of scenes with the characters interacting with each other — with Willis’ character attempting to stop an apocalyptic outcome.
“Glass” brings together the narratives of Shyamalan’s “Unbreakable,” which was released in 2000 through Disney, and last year’s “Split,” from Universal. Shyamalan is self-financing. Universal, Blumhouse and
Chris Butler, who directed the studio’s Oscar-nominated 2012 movie “ParaNorman,” will direct the globe-trotting comedy-adventure.
The film will be the Oregon-based studio’s fifth feature, following successes like “Coraline,” “The Boxtrolls” and “Kubo and the Two Strings.”
“Our next film represents an evolutionary shift for Laika,” Laika president and CEO Travis Knight said in a statement. “It’s an exciting bridge to our future. Director Chris Butler and the wizards at Laika have crafted a moving work of art, layered with wit and imagination and soul. Plus it’s really, really funny. It’s a privilege to partner with Megan [Ellison] and her exceptional team at Annapurna to bring this beautiful original story to the world.”
Annapurna founder Megan Ellison added, “We’re excited for the opportunity to collaborate with Travis and the amazing team at Laika. We appreciate their trust and look forward to having some fun together.”

“I heard what they were thinking and I immediately said yes,” Curtis said. “First of all, except for ‘Star Wars,’ I can’t think of another movie that the same actor playing the same character 40 years.”
Curtin went on to promise fans the sequel is “going to scare the living shit out of you.”
“This isn’t the piece of shit we made back in the 90s and I apologize for anyone who had to endure it,” she continued. “This movie is hella scary – and you guys please tweet that I said hella.
The film, set for release on Oct. 12, 2018 — the heart of awards season — reunites Gosling with his La La Land director Damien Chazelle, who take the stage with his two actors at CinemaCon, where First Man was one of the centerpieces of Universal's CinemaCon presentation.

Cruise was feted Wednesday night on the third day of Cinemacon, the National Association of Theater Owners’ annual convention in Las Vegas. The pioneer of the year award is given to a member of the motion picture community to honor professional leadership, service, and commitment to philanthropy.
“I grew up going to the movies and I wanted to make movies since I was four,” Cruise said in his acceptance speech. “I’m very proud to be part of this family. We take care of our own, that’s what families do.”
Cruise spent most of the 15-minute speech offering thanks. He recalled one of the early instances of that came when Stanley Jaffe and Harold Becker expanded his role in the 1981 drama “Taps.
In his “Just Between Us” segment, in which Klepper’s faux-right wing persona pretends to have a private conversation with like-minded conservatives, Klepper said “”We need Hillary Clinton. She’s basically the whole Gop strategy for winning the midterms. Without her to crap on, our candidates have nothing to stand for.”
Watch the clip above.

“Republicans have already given up on legislating this year and it’s only April,” Klepper said. “If there was no Joker in Gotham, Batman would just be some rich weirdo in a cape, masking it up with a boy acrobat he’s not even related to.”
“We need more Hillary, and we need more Hillary, quick,” Klepper continued. “Just seeing her name makes most people’s buttholes shiver.

“What do we do when Hillary isn’t relevant anymore?” Klepper asked. “Same thing I do when my therapist tells me to stop bringing up my ex-wife: talk about her anyway.”
“You bring out the worst in me,” Klepper joked about Clinton. “Which is my best feature.”

“I don’t even know what happened here,” Noah said on Wednesday’s episode of “The Daily Show.” “I think Kanye realized he’s too rich to not be Republican.”

Earlier on Wednesday, West tweeted that he has “love” for the president despite not agreeing with all of his actions. “You don’t have to agree with Trump but the mob can’t make me not love him,” he wrote. “We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone.”
That was followed by a few more tweets discussing his support for Trump, including a photo of his signed “Make America Great Again” hat. And earlier this week, Alex Jones even asked Kanye to come on his conspiracy-minded YouTube show “Infowars.”
“Breaking news from the sunken place,” Noah said at the top of the bit, referencing Jordan Peele’s Oscar-winning horror film “Get Out.”
“You know this is probably going to confuse people on Fox News, right?” Noah continued. “They’re probably gonna be” — at this point he adopted an extremely “white” sounding accent — “Why don’t these celebrity rap thugs stay out of politics and… sorry I mean this guy understands the American people, he understands all of them.”

What’s weird, Noah continued, is that “Kanye is the same guy who said George Bush hates black people. That’s right, he said ‘George Bush doesn’t care about black people.’ But he’s the same guy who loves Trump? Like when George Bush sees this on Twitter he’s gonna be like ‘what the f—?”
