We are here today at the Southend Film Festival with the opening film King Cnut. How did the film first come about between the two of you?

Evandro – Dave is a stand-up comedian and turned what had happened to him into a show. I went to see him because I knew someone who was going to the show. He called me and said I am going to a new show did you want to see it. I had never heard of Dave,

10 Actors You Forgot Were in “Band of Brothers”

As a heavily dramatized version of a large bunch of men that formed what was called Easy Company, Band of Brothers was a miniseries that took people through the basic training of the men involved all the way to the end of WWII. There’s a great deal more to it than just that but the number of faces in this miniseries was absolutely intense since there were so many well-known names that might not have been as famous but would soon be on their way to new heights that they’d not experienced yet. A lot of these men went on

Steven Spielberg Headed To The World Of DC Comics For Blackhawk

The Hollywood Reporter brings word today that Steven Spielberg has signed on to produce and potentially direct an adaptation of DC Comics property Blackhawk, the WWII action-adventure hero who first sprung onto the tiles in 1941.

On script duties is David Koepp, a frequent Spielberg collaborator whose work spans Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, War of the Worlds and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, with the full force of Amblin Entertainment ready to produce alongside Warner Bros.

Spielberg, meanwhile, has agreed to develop and produce Blackhawk, though WB is said to be angling it as a potential directing vehicle. Should a deal place, it would mark the filmmaker’s first major foray into the world of DC Comics, and there is perhaps no character better suited to Spielberg than Blackhawk, whose WWII roots ought to whisk the illustrious director back to his days on Band of Brothers – albeit with an added superhero twist.

Podtalk: Christian Taylor on Origins for her Documentary ‘The Girl Who Wore Freedom’

Chicago – The era of World War II, now close to 80 years in the past, seems ever so farther in the rear view mirror of history. Movies have done their part to keep the memories and the spirit alive, so joining such works as “Band of Brothers” and “Saving Private Ryan” is a new documentary in development, “The Girl Who Wore Freedom,” now in pre-production by filmmakers Christian Taylor and Terry Jun of Reverse Negative Studios in Skokie, Ill.

Ms. Taylor was accompanying her military son Hunter to Normandy, France, as he participated in an anniversary event honoring D-Day, the “storming of the beach” by U.S. troops and their Allies. This battle – which began on June 6th, 1944 – was the beginning of France’s liberation from Nazi occupation, and the beginning of the end of World War II in Europe. While Taylor and her son were participating in ceremonies, she met up with Dany Patrix Boucherie,

Battlestar Galactica Movie Wants to Gender-Swap Roles?
Universal's long-gestating Battlestar Galactica movie is still moving forward, with director Francis Lawrence offering an interesting update while promoting his new movie Red Sparrow. While there is still no indication as to when production may actually take place, the filmmaker has been developing the script with Westworld co-creator Lisa Joy, and while no specific plot details have been divulged, the filmmaker revealed there is a strong possibility some of the iconic roles from the TV series may be gender-swapped. Here's what the director had to say when asked about the possibility of gender-swapping certain Battlestar Galactica roles.

"Yes absolutely 100 per cent! I'm not going to give any details but 100% there's room for that."

While there has been little to no movement on the project since Lawrence was brought on as director in June 2016, the director revealed in an interview last month that Battlestar Galactica is in fact still happening, although
