Mary Pinchot Meyer Murder Mystery Limited Series In Works At WBTV From David Seidler & Safehouse Pictures
The story about the murder of JFK’s lover, American painter Mary Pinchot Meyer, is being developed by Warner Bros TV as a potential limited series. The project hails from Oscar-winning writer David Seidler (The King’s Speech) and Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell’s Safehouse Pictures.

Written by Seidler and based on Peter Janney’s book Mary’s Mosaic, the drama/murder mystery explores different theories about the killing of Meyer while also exploring her secret romantic relationship with President John F. Kennedy.

Seidler executive produces for Studio Seven 13, which he co-founded with Clara Hendon, along with Tunnell and Harold for Safehouse. Studio Seven 13’s Hendon is a producer. Safehouse, Studio Seven 13, and Warner Bros TV co-produce.

‘Mary Poppins Returns’ Review: A Sweet But Imaginatively Bankrupt Sequel

A listless Sunday afternoon of a movie that bursts with forced whimsy and synthetic optimism from the first notes of “(Underneath the) Lovely London Sky” to the last twinkles of “Nowhere to Go but Up” (an admirably bold choice of song title for any film’s big closing number), “Mary Poppins Returns” isn’t dishonest so much as it’s out of its time, like a useless clock that’s happy to be five minutes off. In fact, that analogy is something of a plot point in this long-awaited Disney sequel, which — after its daytime lullaby of an opening number — begins with the grizzled Admiral Boom (David Warner) complaining that Big Ben is running a few ticks ahead of schedule. Of course, the truth of the matter is that the crotchety old naval vet is actually lagging behind, but this is a film that would rather slow down the rest

Top Gun 2 Script Gets an Assist from Mission: Impossible - Fallout Director

Top Gun 2 Script Gets an Assist from Mission: Impossible - Fallout Director
It looks like Tom Cruise has brought in one of his favorite collaborators to help polish up the script for Top Gun 2: Maverick. Christopher McQuarrie, who most recently wrote/directed Mission: Impossible - Fallout, has been brought on board to do a little additional script work on the highly-anticipated sequel to the 80s classic that helped make Cruise a star. Since the movie was recently delayed by a full year, it apparently gave them a bit of time to some polishing. What's another year for those who have been waiting to see this since 1986?

During a recent interview, while they didn't touch on the topic too much, Tom Cruise revealed that Christopher McQuarrie has been brought in to work on Top Gun 2: Maverick. This isn't meant to be cause for concern. The main script is done. It appears as though McQuarrie is just going to be adding some touches and doing a punch-up.

‘Top Gun 2’: Tom Cruise Confirms Writer Christopher McQuarrie Is Feeling The Need For Speed

It should come as no surprise that Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise like to collaborate on films. After multiple successful ventures, including the two best “Mission: Impossible” films, “Jack Reacher,” and “Edge of Tomorrow,” McQuarrie seems to enjoy writing (and sometimes directing) for Cruise. And it doesn’t appear that’s going to end anytime soon, as Cruise says that McQuarrie is back for some “Top Gun” action.

'Terrifyingly relevant': why Doug Liman had to recut Fair Game

In 2010, the political drama starring Naomi Watts didn’t make a splash but now the director hopes a director’s cut will appeal to the current climate

The films of Doug Liman are half-siblings: they have a lot in common underneath, but don’t always look alike. Swingers, the likable low-budget 1996 comedy that also launched the careers of Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn, was the movie that first made his name, but the big break was the 2002 blockbuster The Bourne Identity, starring Matt Damon as a deadly amnesiac. Since then, he’s developed a reputation as a dependable, protean Hollywood director, sometimes mischaracterized as an action journeyman.

Even when he changes up his style, as in last year’s mile-a-minute American Made, he can’t seem to get away from his preoccupations: skulduggery (often involving the CIA); military-industrial flim-flam; characters who find themselves in plots beyond their control or are forced to start over.

Connecting the Dots from Bush to Trump: Doug Liman Recuts His 8-Year-Old Valerie Plame Movie ‘Fair Game’

Connecting the Dots from Bush to Trump: Doug Liman Recuts His 8-Year-Old Valerie Plame Movie ‘Fair Game’
Doug Liman is an independent filmmaker who gets away with murder in Hollywood because he boasts a string of major hits, from “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” and “The Bourne Identity” to “Edge of Tomorrow.” He often throws sets into chaos in order to achieve unexpected results. “My films have been successful and therefore the process has accommodated me,” he once told me. “When the studio said ‘no,’ I did it anyhow. Now, they don’t say no to me.”

Indeed. Liman’s films are consistently watchable and entertaining in their quirky unpredictability, even with his misfires (see: “Jumper”). Indie-financed “Fair Game” (Summit Entertainment), which earned mixed reviews (Metascore: 69) and struggled at the 2010 box office (domestic total: $9 million), is hardly the usual candidate for a re-release 8 years later. Yet here it is. “I’ve never seen a rule I didn’t think about breaking,” he told me on the phone.

And get ready for something unexpected, as Kinberg says the upcoming X-Men spin-off is going to be a romantic comedy. That's right, everyone. Prepare for the first ever romantic comedy with mutants.

Simon Kinberg who, in addition to serving as a longtime producer and writer of the franchise, also serves as director of the upcoming Dark Phoenix, recently provided a brief update on Gambit. Surprisingly, when talking about the project, which has Channing Tatum attached to star as the titular character, Kinberg surprisingly said, albeit loosely, that this is going to feel like a romantic comedy. Here's what he had to say about it.

"When you look at Gambit, he's a hustler and a womanizer and we just felt like there was an attitude,

Matthew Vaughn Signed To Write/Direct ‘Kingsman 3’ & Take Over Former ‘Bond 25’ Release Date

There’s little hope for a “Dredd 2,” “Galaxy Quest 2,” or the “Edge of Tomorrow” sequel anytime soon. But yet, Fox is still going to pump out a third “Kingsman.” Filmmaker Matthew Vaughn threatened the possibility of a threequel a while ago (combined with a potential TV series and prequel film), but now it appears that “Kingsman 3” is officially official.

Fox Developing Tech FBI Drama ‘Switch’ From ‘Underground’ Duo & Len Wiseman

  • Deadline
Fox has put in development Switch, an hourlong drama from former Underground executive producers Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell, Len Wiseman and Warner Bros. TV.

Written by Harold and to be directed by Wiseman, Switch asks the question, what if you could quite literally drive the body of another human being? Welcome to the world of Switch – an adrenaline-fueled procedural detailing the exploits of the FBI’s newest undercover unit, the Switch Division, a task force created to allow an agent to go undercover inside the body of another human being. Or at least that’s the theory. Unfortunately, type-a Louise “Lou” Fawkes can’t find an agent insane enough to try her new technology. Enter Harry “Mac” Macallister – a sloppy, loose-cannon, former undercover burnout who will enjoy nothing more than the opportunity to spend each week inside the bodies of various criminals – except perhaps watching Lou pull her hair out trying to control him.

10 Great Female-Fronted Action Movies Worth Revisiting

When Doug Liman’s Edge of Tomorrow kicks into high gear, it’s not because of the star wattage of Mr. Tom Cruise finally reaches full brightness. It’s because Cruise’s oft-murdered soldier must fight and learn from Sgt. Rita Rose Vratask, played with no-bull skepticism and physical oomph by Emily Blunt. She’s the better soldier by a mile but by the end of the movie, she will have thanked Cruise’s character for teaching her one thing or two and everyone claps or something.

Brad Bird Says Hollywood’s Sequel Obsession Is ‘Shortsighted and Stupid,’ Calls ‘Dunkirk’ the Boldest Blockbuster in Years

Brad Bird Says Hollywood’s Sequel Obsession Is ‘Shortsighted and Stupid,’ Calls ‘Dunkirk’ the Boldest Blockbuster in Years
Brad Bird has taken to social media over the last several days to sound off on the prioritization of sequels from Hollywood’s major studios. The director happens to be responsible for one of the biggest sequels of the year, “Incredibles 2” (nearly $600 million in the U.S. and over $1.1 billion worldwide), but he isn’t happy with the fact movie sequels are becoming the only type of film major studios are willing to put big money behind.

“Some of the best films made are sequels,” Bird admitted, “and yes, they are hard to do well. But they are getting to be the only movies of size and ambition that Hollywood will make now. And that’s not only sad, it’s shortsighted.”

Bird singled out Christopher Nolan for reaching a rare level where a major studio like Warner Bros. gives him big budgets to make original properties. The director

Star Trek: Discovery’s Best Episode Was Rewritten At The Last Minute

Season 2 of Star Trek: Discovery looks like it’s going to change gears after the wartime setting of the first outing. Though the show’s debut run was received pretty well, its focus on non-traditional Trek fare certainly alienated some fans, which is possibly why the sophomore effort sounds like it’ll travel to some slightly more familiar territory.

Before we get there though, let’s revisit one of Discovery‘s best episodes yet, “Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad.” Inventive and exhilarating, it saw Rainn Wilson return as Harry Mudd, out for revenge on Captain Gabriel Lorca for leaving him behind on the Klingon prison ship a few episodes prior. Using a device that allowed him to loop time, the seventh installment of the first season took on an Edge of Tomorrow vibe as it had the crew reliving the same situation over and over again, forcing
