Anne Hathaway to Lead ‘Live Fast Die Hot’, Elizabeth Olsen Joins ‘Kodachrome,’ and More

Soon to be seen in Nacho Vigalondo‘s highly-anticipated Colossal at Tiff, and next year in the upcoming Ocean’s Eight alongside a massive cast, Anne Hathaway has another project in her sights. She’s signed on to star in and produce an adaptation of Jenny Mollen‘s novel Live Fast Die Hot according to Variety, which is not a cross-over spin-off on the Die Hard and Fast & Furious series.

In fact, it is a collection of personal essays from the author that delve into adulthood, responsibility, and proving that you can travel alone without ending up in a Taken-esque scenario. Mollen herself has a particular set of skills as a writer and actress who lives in New York, who has appeared in films such as Crazy, Stupid, Love and TV episodes on Wilfred and Girls. The adaptation is in association with Warner Bros and one can check back for more details.

13 Most Anticipated Films of 2013

2013 is here. Obviously its extremely early in the game, but the biggest moneymaker of the year so far has been Texas Chainsaw 3D. That says something about a landscape of movies full of reboots, remakes and sequels.What it says is that they work.

Is this a sad fact? Yes, in some ways its a bit disconcerting. In my mind I see a film industry that no longer embraces the original. Just look back at the 80′s and nostalgia kicks in with bitter sentimentality. But if you go back 20 years to 1983 you’ll find six of the top 20 films from that year were also sequels. Granted, six of the top ten films of 2012 were also sequels, the others including one reboot, a comic book film and two films based on novels (The Hobbit can even be classified as a prequel).

Unfortunately we have to come to terms with what mainstream

Guerilla Filmmaking

Blockbuster – the one-time giant in the home video rental business which went bankrupt last September – was bought at auction this past week by Dish Network for $320 million. According to Dish, it intends to combine its wireless technology with Blockbuster’s brand name recognition, studio relationships and digital rights to re-establish Blockbuster as a player in the direct-to-home market against Netflix and newer contenders like Amazon and a Warner Bros. online rental service to be offered on Facebook.

However this plays out long-term, the auction buy is the last page in a final chapter begun back in September when Blockbuster busted. To trot out the old cliché, it’s the – everybody now — end of an era.

The business Blockbuster used to be in seemed revolutionary in its day, though it seems almost quaint now; come Friday, some delegate from the family would trot to the neighborhood video store hoping to get

Shawn Levy to direct Kodachrome road-trip drama for DreamWorks

Shawn Levy continues to be a director in high deman in Hollywood. He has not signed on to direct a new film based on a pitch to be penned by Jonathan Tropper that will center around the demise of Kodak’s Kodachrome film. Deadline reports that DreamWorks is close to picking up the script that would be a vehicle for Levy. In case you were not aware, Kodak stopped developing Kodachrome slide film, one of the most popular brands in the Kodak family. More and more photogs have switched over to digital, using film less and less. Dwayne’s Photo, an outlet in Kansas, was the last remaining developers of Kodachrome in the country and at the end of December they no longer accepted the format for processing.

The film is inspired by the NY Times article, “For Kodachrome Fans, Road Ends at Photo Lab in Kansas” that centers around

Oscar Season Chat #1 From Guest Columnist Actor Chris Sarandon

What makes good movies good?

As award season approaches its Oscar peak, it seems a fitting time to consider just what makes a movie stand out from the pack? What’s the difference between the popular, and a true creative accomplishment? I’m lucky enough to have worked with Chris Sarandon and he was gracious enough to take my place for the week and share some of his observations.

His breakout Oscar/Golden Globe-nominated performance as Leon, Al Pacino’s gay lover in Dog Day Afternoon (1975), launched him on a career which would include memorable roles on both the big and small screens as well as the stage, including the GQ-styled vampire in the serio-comic Fright Night (1985), the foppish villain king of The Princess Bride (1987), the voice of Jack Skellington in the animated classic The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), a turn on the New York stage as Signor Naccarelli in the
