20 Wild Details Behind The Making Of Hook

For many people growing up in the 1990s, Hook is thought of fondly as a childhood favorite. With a star-studded cast including Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman, Bob Hoskins, and Julia Roberts, Steven Spielberg’s 1991 re-imagining of the Peter Pan story will conjure up magical memories of Neverland and of trying to crow like the Lost Boys. Although the movie holds a special place in many people’s hearts, Hook wasn’t actually very well received when it was released. Critics accused it of being sappy, messy, and bloated. Spielberg himself has been critical of his movie, and because of all this, Hook has gone down in history as being one of Spielberg’s worst films.

Whether or not you’re a fan of the movie, it can’t be denied that there is something charming about this story of regained childhood. Robin Williams is as charismatic and wonderful as he always was in films,

‘The Old Man & the Gun’: How David Lowery Brought 1970s Cinema Back to Life for a Modern-Day Robert Redford

‘The Old Man & the Gun’: How David Lowery Brought 1970s Cinema Back to Life for a Modern-Day Robert Redford
Initially, David Lowery’s adaptation of David Grann’s New Yorker article about 78-year-old bank robber Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford) were closer to the real-life story of the man who escaped prison 16 times. While Tucker tried to be the charming gentleman robber Redford would portray him as in Lowery’s “The Old Man and the Gun,” in reality his notorious “Over the Hill Gang” was made up of 20-30 hardened criminals involved with drug-running and murder. After getting a chance to spend time with and direct Redford in “Pete’s Dragon,” Lowery dramatically changed his approach.

“After I did ‘Pete’s Dragon,’ I realized there is no way to get away from Robert Redford in some shape or form being Robert Redford, whether he likes it or not,” said Lowery as a guest on IndieWire’s Toolkit Podcast. “He carries with him the accumulated history of everything he has done

Carrie Underwood Remembers Craig Zadan: “He Will Be Greatly Missed”
Country star Carrie Underwood took to Twitter Wednesday to respond to the death of Craig Zadan, executive producer of The Sound of Music Live! which she starred in.

“Such sad news,” Underwood tweeted. “Craig was a visionary, a risk-taker, a lover of music and just an all around nice guy! I am honored to have worked with him. He will be greatly missed.”

Underwood starred as Maria von Trapp in NBC’s live version of the musical that aired on Dec. 5, 2013 and co-starred Stephen Moyer as Captain Georg von Trapp and Audra McDonald as Mother Abbess.

Despite Underwood’s limited acting and Broadway experience, Zadan and long-time producing partner Neil Meron took a chance on her to headline the live event. In part because of Underwood’s popularity, The Sound of Music was such a huge ratings success, it led to Zadan and Meron executive producing four more live productions

Remembering Craig Zadan: A Final Interview With A Showbiz Great As Possible ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ Emmy Love Awaits
Some things just hit you in the gut and have no easy explanation. The death Tuesday of Craig Zadan is one of them. I am still trying to process it.

I have done so many interviews over the years of this prolific producer and true showbiz devotee, including one I just did in June at our Deadline studios, that it is hard to comprehend his sudden and unexpected passing reportedly due to complications from shoulder-replacement surgery.

He had contacted me in May saying he and Neil would be open to any interview tied to Emmy season and their wildly acclaimed NBC live-musical staging of Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert on Easter Sunday. I told him at the time it represented their greatest chance at finally winning the Emmy, after basically re-inventing the network live-musical format with the likes of The Sound of Music,

Glenn Close movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Fatal Attraction,’ ‘Dangerous Liaisons’

Glenn Close movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Fatal Attraction,’ ‘Dangerous Liaisons’
Glenn Close got her start on Broadway in the ‘70s, appearing in such shows as “Barnum,” and made-for-tv movies including “Too Far to Go” and “The Orphan Train.” She was 35 at the time of her big-screen debut in 1982’s “The World According to Garp.” But Close swiftly made up for lost time by racking up three back-to-back supporting actress Oscar nominations for “Garp,” “The Big Chill” and “The Natural.” With “Fatal Attraction,” “Dangerous Liaisons” and “Albert Nobbs,” she would add three lead actress nods to her total, and currently holds the record as a living actress with the most Academy Award nominations – six – without a win.

That Academy Award losing streak might come at the 2019 Oscars, thanks to Close’s tour de force star performance as the put-upon spouse of a womanizing, self-absorbed novelist (Jonathan Pryce) who wins the Nobel Prize in literature in “The Wife,” opening Aug. 17. An early

Honest Trailer For Hook - Steven Spielberg's Least Favorite Steven Spielberg Movie

I know that Hook isn't Steven Spielberg's best movie, but chances are, if you grew up with it, you probably love it. Hook is one of those films that will always hold a special place in my heart. Hell, out of all of the Peter Pan films that have been made it is one of the best!

With Winnie the Pooh coming out this weekend, Screen Junkies have released an Honest Trailer for Hook because of the similarities in the stories and the fact that it focuses on sad middle-aged men who are forced into a situation that make them remember how happy their childhoods used to be and inspire them to be better husbands and fathers. 

The Honest Trailer for Hook doesn't necessarily bash the movie, it just makes amusing observations like how this is Steven Spielberg's least favorite Steven Spielberg movie.

‘Hamilton’ Filmed Performance With Lin-Manuel Miranda Could Hit Big Screen: Report

A week after Netflix announced it will film Bruce Springsteen’s hotter-than-hot one-man Broadway show for streaming in December, a similar – but big-screen – plan reportedly is in the works for Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton.

The Wall Street Journal reports today that unnamed Hollywood studios are bidding for the rights to a filmed performance of Hamilton from 2016 – when Miranda still headed the cast in the title role. The worldwide theatrical rights, WSJ reports, could sell for more than $50 million.

The WSJ cites two unnamed people with knowledge of the deal. According to the article, representatives for the production recently screened the recording for interested buyers.

Among the interested studios, according to the WSJ, are Warner Bros and Twentieth Century Fox. The potential buyers are being asked not to play or stream Hamilton until 2020 or 2021.

A spokesperson for Hamilton told Deadline that neither the production nor Miranda would have “any comment on this at this time.

10 Things About The Lost Boys You Never Knew

10 Things About The Lost Boys You Never Knew
Sleep all day, party all night, never grow old, never die - it's fun to be a vampire. It's one of Movieweb's favorite movies of all time: the 1987 classic The Lost Boys. Here we'll take a look at 10 things you never knew about The Lost Boys.

The Goonies in Neverland

With its badass vampires, California cool, and slick visuals courtesy of Michael Chapman, famed cinematographer of Taxi Driver and Raging Bull, The Lost Boys is an '80s teen classic, but it began as something remarkably different. Early drafts were much more "on the nose" with the Peter Pan references, with David's character originally going by Peter. The main characters were all going to be much younger, too, with Richard Donner attached to direct. But The Goonies director, who stayed on as a producer, moved on to make Lethal Weapon instead. He was replaced by Joel Schumacher, whose St. Elmo's
