Narnia: The Silver Chair Is Director Joe Johnston's Final Movie

Narnia: The Silver Chair Is Director Joe Johnston's Final Movie
We haven't heard anything about The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair since late April, when director Joe Johnston signed on. Sony hasn't issued a formal release date at this time, but the filmmaker put in an appearance at Paris Comic Con, where he not only confirmed that production will begin next winter, with prep work starting next July, but also that this will be his last movie as a director. Here's what he had to say, when asked during an interview if this will in fact be his last directorial effort, while also confirming the production schedule.

"That's the plan. It will take a couple of years to make the film as we won't be able to start shooting next winter in New Zealand, on the South Island, which will be summer down there. And post and the visual effects will take another year and it'll be 2019, and I

Woody Harrelson and Kevin Costner to hunt Bonnie & Clyde in Netflix’s Highwayman

Deadline is reporting that Woody Harrelson and Kevin Costner are in talks to play legendary lawmen Frank Hamer and Manny Gault, the two former Texas Rangers tasked with hunting down notorious outlaws Bonnie & Clyde, in the drama Highwayman.

The site reports that Netflix is currently in talks to acquire the project from Universal Pictures, where it was set up four years ago. John Lee Hancock (Saving Mr. Banks, The Founder) will direct, and has rewritten an earlier script from John Fusco (Young Guns, Hidalgo).

Rather than focussing on the two outlaw lovers, famously portrayed by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway in 1967’s Bonnie & Clyde, Highwayman will explore the story from the point of view of the posse assembled by Hamer to bring their violent crime spree to and end.

Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair Gets Captain America Director
After announcing last year that the Chronicles of Narnia franchise will be "restarted" with the new movie The Silver Chair, the producers have finally found their director. Joe Johnston has signed on to direct this fantasy adventure, marking his first movie since the 2014 thriller Not Safe For Work. No cast members have been set at this time, but this story will feature characters from the original C.S. Lewis novels, who haven't been featured in any of the previous movies.

Variety broke the news today, which comes eight months after producer Mark Gordon joined forces with Sony's TriStar Pictures, eOne and The C.S. Lewis Company for this restart. David Magee came aboard to write the screenplay in 2013, although the studios haven't set a release date or a production start date at this time quite yet. Here's what producer Mark Gordon had to say about bringing Joe Johnston in to direct The Silver Chair.

The Legend of Tarzan review

Director David Yates leaves the Harry Potter Franchise behind for the time being and gives us The Legend of Tarzan, and enjoyable boys own adventure. In this day and age of big budget action cinema mainly consisting of super hero movies, it’s a nice change to have an old fashioned hero, albeit update for a 21st Century audience. Unfortunately, although having an abundance of CGI and action, I think the film’s ,downfall at the box office could be due to old fashioned nature of the film, which for this viewer is what raised it form just a typical action/adventure. More in line with Joe Johnston’s Hidalgo than Spielberg’s Raiders of the Lost Ark, the Legend of Tarzan is one of better big budget action movies...

10 Best Horse Movies – Celebrating Birthday Of 1973 Triple Crown Winner Secretariat

March 30, 1970. Racing champion Secretariat was born.

After Citation in 1948, Secretariat became the first U.S. Triple Crown winner in 25 years and became the stuff of legend.

New York Post columnist Larry Merchant said:

Secretariat is the kind of Big Horse that makes grown men weep, even when they are flint-hearted bettors, even when he goes off at 1-10. He is the apparently unflawed hunk of beauty and beast they search for doggedly in the racing charts every day, and never seemed to find. His supporters rhapsodize over him as though he is a four-legged Nureyev, extolling virtues of his musculature, his grace, his urine specimens.” If he were to lose the Belmont, Merchant warned, “the country may turn sullen and mutinous.”

As of 2015, only 12 horses have won the Triple Crown: Sir Barton (1919), Gallant Fox (1930), Omaha (1935), War Admiral (1937), Whirlaway (1941), Count Fleet (1943), Assault (1946), Citation (1948), Secretariat (1973), Seattle Slew (1977), Affirmed (1978), and American Pharoah (2015).

Omar Sharif, ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ and ‘Dr. Zhivago’ Star, Dies at 83

Omar Sharif, ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ and ‘Dr. Zhivago’ Star, Dies at 83
Omar Sharif, the dashing, Egyptian-born actor who was one of the biggest movie stars in the world in the 1960s, with memorable roles in “Dr. Zhivago,” “Lawrence of Arabia” and “Funny Girl,” has died. He was 83.

Sharif suffered a heart attack on Friday afternoon in a hospital in Cairo, his agent said.

It was announced in May that he had Alzheimer’s disease.

With the global success of David Lean’s “Lawrence of Arabia,” starring Peter O’Toole, in 1962, Sharif became the first Arab actor to achieve worldwide fame, thanks to his charismatic presence in the epic film — and the Oscar nomination he drew because of it.

In its wake he very quickly became a busy Hollywood actor: Sharif made three films in 1964, including “Behold a Pale Horse” and “The Yellow Rolls Royce,” and three in 1965, including his first lead role in an English-language production, as the title character in Lean’s “Dr.

The Shack Adaptation Lands Director Stuart Hazeldine

Finally, an adaptation of William P. Young’s inspirational Christian bestseller The Shack is picking up steam over at Lionsgate, now that the studio has set Stuart Hazeldine to sit behind the camera on the project.

Hazeldine doesn’t have too much directing experience, but he’s made his mark on the film industry by scripting multiple epics, from Gods and Kings (the Moses pic which Steven Spielberg was developing before Ridley Scott powered ahead with Exodus) to Irish war saga Gods and Men and Bernard Cromwell adaptation Agincourt (which has Michael Mann set to direct). Previously, Hazeldine also helmed the BAFTA-nominated indie Exam, which he also wrote, and the short film Christian, about Jesus Christ disguising himself as a 14-year old boy to visit a tough British high school.

On The Shack, Hazeldine will be working from a script by John Fusco (Hidalgo, Netflix’s Marco Polo, upcoming Crouching Tiger,

Netflix’s Marco Polo Trailer Teases Sex And Swordplay On A Grand Scale

Netflix’s aggressive advances into original programming have so far included star-studded political dramas (House of Cards), animated sitcoms (BoJack Horseman) and distinctive dramedies (Orange is the New Black), but this winter will see the arrival of what could be the streaming giant’s most ambitious venture yet - Marco Polo.

A big-budgeted historical epic on the scale of Starz’s Da Vinci’s Demons or Showtime’s The Tudors, Marco Polo follows the famed explorer’s early years spent in the court of Mongolian emperor Kublai Khan. Lorenzo Richelmy stars as Polo in a cast that also includes Benedict Wong, Joan Chen and Chin Han.

Unquestionably, the $90 million series, created by John Fusco (Hidalgo), is Netflix’s riskiest bid to date. If it takes off with viewers in the same way that House of Cards and Orange is the New Black have, we could be looking at one of
