Ethan Hawke on ‘First Reformed,’ Making a ‘Before’ Film in 2018, and Getting Paid More When He Carries a Gun

Ethan Hawke on ‘First Reformed,’ Making a ‘Before’ Film in 2018, and Getting Paid More When He Carries a Gun
In his new film “First Reformed,” Ethan Hawke stars as Reverend Toller, an ailing former military chaplain, who counsels an expectant father so disturbed by climate change that he wants his wife to get an abortion. As the narrative — from writer/director Paul Schrader — progresses, Toller learns that one of the nation’s biggest polluters paid for the upgrades to his church, yet nonetheless assumes the young man’s environmentalist mantle.

A clergyman is “not a role that you often see fully explored in movies,” Hawke told IndieWire during a recent interview. “You see people dressed up as priests and they’re robbing a bank, or they’re in ‘Cannonball Run,’ or you see evil priests in horror movies, and things like that…I really was grateful for not the opportunity to play a [pastor], but this one.”

Meanwhile, Hawke concedes, “There’s about 80 million cop movies,” including his own “Brooklyn

Fuhrman in “Masters of Sex”

“Hunger Games” alumna Isabelle Fuhrman has signed on to star in “Tape,” a timely indie drama sure to be associated with the #MeToo movement. Written and directed by Deborah Kampmeier and based on a true story, the Full Moon Films’ pic sees Fuhrman playing an ambitious actress who crosses paths with a Harvey Weinstein-like producer.

The pair meet at an open call audition. It’s not long before he invites her to his hotel to discuss a potential role. “What he doesn’t know is that another actress (Annarosa Mudd) is waiting to exact her revenge against him,” Deadline summarizes.

“The screenplay is based on the events that occurred to a dear friend of mine whose story I knew needed to be told,” said Kampmeier in a statement. “This was before the #MeToo movement took hold of the country and shone a light on

‘Lady Bird’ Takes Flight as Best Specialty Opener of 2017

‘Lady Bird’ Takes Flight as Best Specialty Opener of 2017
Lady Bird” (A24), Greta Gerwig’s first solo directing effort, rode a wave of strong reviews and publicity to score the best limited opener of the year. After a disappointing prime specialty season when it has become easy to forget what a strong limited platform opening can be, her valentine to her home town of Sacramento starring Saorise Ronan debuted even higher than expectations.

This success stood in sharp contrast to the weak opening for Richard Linklater’s “Last Flag Flying” (Lionsgate). Despite a strong push for the Amazon presentation, which opened the New York Film Festival, the military veteran drama starring Bryan Cranston, Steve Carell and Laurence Fishburne couldn’t pull in specialty audiences.

Opening

Lady Bird (A24) – Metacritic: 93; Festivals include: Telluride, Toronto, New York 2017

$375,612 in 4 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $93,903

The first breakout hit of the awards season is also the biggest specialized release of the year

Richard Linklater on ‘Last Flag Flying,’ Confidence, and the Film That Launched His Career

Richard Linklater on ‘Last Flag Flying,’ Confidence, and the Film That Launched His Career
Richard Linklater has returned to his roots — specifically, his hometown of Houston, just a week or so before that World Series thing — to conduct a series of interviews for his latest film, “Last Flag Flying.” But he’s easily distracted by twinges of nostalgia as he settles in at the Hotel ZaZa for a late-afternoon chat.

Back when he was in his early 20s and working on offshore oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, Linklater would spend much of his downtime in H-Town educating himself in movie history by attending screenings just across the street, at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Or at the nearby Rice University Media Center. Or at art houses like the River Oaks Theatre — back when it screened repertory double bills — and the long-shuttered Greenway 3. He has spent most of his life and career in and around Austin, where he shot his breakthrough indie feature, “Slacker,” in 1989. But

James Franco’s Movie Column: How Richard Linklater Inspired My Work

James Franco’s Movie Column: How Richard Linklater Inspired My Work
James + Semaj is a column where James Franco talks to his reverse self, Semaj, about new films. Rather than a conventional review, it is place where James and Semaj can muse about ideas that the films provoke. James loves going to the movies and talking about them. But a one-sided take on a movie, in print, might be misconstrued as a review. As someone in the industry it could be detrimental to James’s career if he were to review his peers, because unlike the book industry—where writers review other writer’s books—the film industry is highly collaborative, and a bad review of a peer could create problems. So, assume that James (and Semaj) love all these films. What they’re interested in talking about is all the ways the films inspire them, and make them think. James is me, and Semaj is the other side of me.

Ranked: The Best Characters In Richard Linklater's Movies

Austin, Texas filmmaker Richard Linklater helped define the 1990s American indie scene with “Slacker,” a loose collection of conversations with real and invented personalities from the local Austin scene. That first film set a pattern for the filmmaker, who often employs large casts to create sprawling slice of life portraits. The lineup in “Dazed and Confused” could overwhelm a “best characters” list from many other filmmakers, and then there are the “Before” trilogy, “Boyhood,” and the new “Everybody Wants Some!!” to consider, among many others. Read More: SXSW Review: Richard Linklater’s ‘Everybody Wants Some!!’ With Blake Jenner, Tyler Hoechlin, Zoey Deutch & More While often an author of his own scripts, Linklater has adapted material by Eric Bogosian (“SubUrbia”), Eric Schlosser (“Fast Food Nation”), Stephen Belber (“Tape”), Philip K. Dick (“A Scanner Darkly”), and Bill Lancaster (“Bad News Bears”). Even in those cases, the director’s methods and style...

Review: Everybody Wants Some!! is Richard Linklater's Latest Home Run

A hangout movie largely devoid of major conflict, Richard Linklater's Everybody Wants Some!! is an easygoing, carefree, and hilarious exploration of youth and philosophy viewed through the prism of an east Texas college baseball team in 1980. It's alternately raucous, touching, sweet, and silly, but it's almost always hilarious. This is one of my favorite films of 2016 so far.

Linklater is one of the true chameleons of American film, able to slip between genres and legitimately make it feel as if he's mastered any given one at a particular time. Look at intimate, talky dramas like the Before trilogy or Boyhood, fun projects aimed at kids like School of Rock and Bad News Bears, and more heady adult pieces like Tape or A Scanner Darkly — they all have an assured sense of control to them. His period piece comedies, epitomized by Dazed and Confused and that film's spiritual sequel, Everybody Wants Some!

Letters: swearing, Rene Russo, one room and 50 Shades

Our latest letters round up! Swearing at Den Of Geek, and why on earth do we talk about 50 Shades Of Grey?

Right then! A few weeks have passed, so it must be time for another Den Of Geek Letters Page (Tm). (Actually, we've not trademarked that). We're back to normal here, so we're unlikely to be found in the comments. That said, if you want to write in - the details are at the bottom of the post - then we'll try and get your missive into our next letters round up.

But enough waffle from us! On with the latest batch of correspondence...

Jarring isn't it. Why are DoG articles now seemingly using words such as these?

Two Night Stand review

Despite its muted release in the Us, Two Night Stand - starring Miles Teller and Analeigh Tipton - is pretty decent.

Well, I wasn't expecting much from this. Arriving in the UK on the back of precious little fanfare, Two Night Stand is a sort of romantic comedy with a simple premise: what happens the day after the one night stand? Specifically, when you've had a one night stand with someone, and then find yourself unable to leave their apartment the following day, thanks to some cheap-looking CG snow on the outside?

It's the conundrum facing Megan (Analeigh Tipton) and Alec (Miles Teller), who discover they don't particularly like each other, once they've rumped, pumped and trumped. It's Megan who's the catalyst for the film's narrative, as it's she we see setting up the quickie online following the ending of her relationship with her fiancee. She merrily trots over to Alec's place,

Flashback: Richard Linklater's Experimental Approach in 1995's 'Before Sunrise' Was Sundance's Real Breakout Hit

Flashback: Richard Linklater's Experimental Approach in 1995's 'Before Sunrise' Was Sundance's Real Breakout Hit
Most Richard Linklater fans can tell you which film – and sometimes which scene – ignited their enthusiasm for the director, whether it was 1991’s influential indie Slacker, 1993’s high-school classic Dazed and Confused or 2003’s comedy School of Rock.

But, it all began with Before Sunrise.

Released 20 years ago this week, Before Sunrise boasted fresh-faced actors and a swoon-worthy premise: An American man (Ethan Hawke) meets a French woman (Julie Delpy) on a train, and they spend one magical evening together in Vienna. That alone was enough to attract my 17-year-old self to the theater, as was the case with many of my peers.

News: Julie & Ethan Reunite 'Before Midnight'

The true magic of Before Sunrise, however, lies beyond the picturesque scenery and smitten gazes. Building upon his gift for crafting relatable and engrossing conversation, Linklater’s characters feel fully formed, discussing everything from philosophy and religion to love and their hopes for the future.

Stewart’s Eccentricity Barely Keeps “Match” Lit

Groomed and primmed ballet dancers create arches and points which are lauded and corrected by their instructor, kept sharp by his knowledge and dedication to the craft. The bustling bright city of New York as its backdrop, the liveliness of the city is matched only by its protagonist. Introduced at the beginning is a sense of high regard and careful perception which can only be achieved by a writer who like, Tobi, understands his or her own craft to the point where it becomes not just their livelihood but their life. Writer/director Stephen Belber’s start stems from theatre with plays such as Tape (which had its film adaptation directed by Richard Linklater) and The Laramie Project (in which he shares credit with multiple people) and a half dozen years after his film debut in Jennifer Aniston starring Management, he proves to

Ethan Hawke on 'Boyhood' awards success: 'I feel like we crashed the party'
"Boyhood" has been steamrolling in the critics phase of the awards season, something we all saw coming. But today the film received some real, tangible love from an actual industry organization: the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette were chalked up in the supporting races, while the film's cast was nominated in the ensemble category. For Hawke, it all makes for the biggest of cherries on top of a hugely fulfilling creative endeavor. "I've done eight movies with Richard Linklater," the actor says by telephone. "I met him when I was 24 years old at a time in my life when I felt as excited about acting as I imagine Peyton Manning feels about the Super Bowl. I was dedicating my life to it. I was so interested in it. And he was a peer that was as interested in the kind of naturalism that I was into,
