Killing Them Softly (2012)
Andrew Levitas (Lullaby) will direct Minamata based on the book of the same name by Aileen Mioko Smith and Smith and adapted by David K. Kessler (A Hard Day’s Day). Shoot is due to begin in Japan followed by Serbia in January 2019.
The film will follow the reclusive Smith after his celebrated exploits during the Second World War as he travels to Japan in the 1970s to fulfill a commission from Life editor Ralph Graves. Armed with only his trusted Nikon camera he goes there to document the Minamata disease scandal: an annihilation of a coastal community by the Chisso Corporation’s negligent mercury poisoning and local police and government cover-ups. The victims’ case against the corporation responsible for the environmental disaster represents one
Holofcener’s new movie, “The Land of Steady Habits,” is the first one she has made based on material that she didn’t originate herself. You can see why:
Brian A. Kates is an American editor who has been working in the film and television industries since the mid-1990s. He is best known for his work on Killing Them Softly, Lee Daniels’ The Butler, and How to Talk to Girls at Parties.
Flickering Myth recently had the opportunity to interview him about his work on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel pilot, and I in turn had the honor to conduct it:
Mr. Kates, it’s a pleasure to be speaking with you. Congratulations on the Emmy-nomination! Now, we know that, for television pilots, a larger director is sometimes brought on to do the episode in order to create a standard/feel for the rest of the show. For example, you had Martin Scorsese do Boardwalk Empire’s pilot while Alfonso Cuarón did Believe’s (which you were ironically

Rachel Brosnahan stars as Midge Maisel, a 1950s New York City housewife who pursues a stand-up career after her husband (Michael Zegen) leaves her for his secretary. The biggest challenge, Kates admits, came in the climactic stand-up scene where Midge discovers

The 54-year-old actor’s production company, Plan B Entertainment and Annapurna Pictures have acquired the rights to the story of how New York Times reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey investigated and uncovered Weinstein’s pattern of sexual misconduct. The duo’s work recently earned them a Pulitzer Prize.
The project will take after Oscar-winning films such as All the President’s Men and Spotlight, focusing on the reporting that led to the Oct. 2016 exposé rather than the alleged abuse and harassment,
Dominik is an indie favorite after directing “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.” His other credits include the Nick Cave documentary “One More Time with Feeling” and the drama “Killing Them Softly,” which starred Fincher favorite Brad Pitt. Franklin, meanwhile, is a television veteran with directing credits on “13 Reasons Why,” “The Leftovers,” and Fincher’s own “House of Cards.” Dominik is reportedly filming two episodes, while Franklin will direct the remaining Season 2 episodes.
The Playlist notes Season 2 will only have eight episodes,
Trade blog Deadline reports that season 3 ‘will tell the story of a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods. Ali will play the lead role of Wayne Hays, a state police detective from northwest Arkansas.’
They add that the hugely talented McNairy will play Tom, ‘a father who suffers a terrible loss that ties his fate to that of two state police detectives over 10 years.’

The studio behind mother! has pivoted their second week marketing towards the bad word of mouth that the film has been receiving from moviegoers. They stopped selling it as a home invasion horror thriller and instead decided to embrace how polarizing it is.
Some people love it......some people don’t
It’s a bold move and we like it. What they don’t do though, is mention the F cinemascore that the film recieved. CinemaScore is a company that exit polls moviegoers’ opinions on opening night. They have been storing data since 1986, and in that time only 11 other films received the infamous F. Those so honored include Steven Soderbergh's Solaris (2002) and Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly (2012). And make no mistake Darren Aronofsky thinks it's an honor, he told The Frame:
What's interesting about that is, like, how if you walk out of this movie are

It's split audiences. It's bumped at the box office. But Paramount Pictures has come out fighting for Darren Aronofsky's mother!
Few films appear to have split the room as dramatically as Darren Aronofsky’s new movie, mother!, starring Jennifer Lawrence. The film opened in cinemas last weekend, and earned – in the Us – a very low cinemascore of F from audiences. That puts it in the company of movies such as Killing Them Softly, and the remake of Solaris. Not bad films, to be clear, more films that, if they don’t side with them, people tend to outright hate.

Jennifer Lawrence is an acclaimed, Academy Award winning actress who was once the highest paid actress in the world two years ago. The 27-year old actress can pretty much do whatever she wants, but it's beginning to look like her fans do not want to see her in horror movies. 2012's House at the End of the Street was panned by critics and is seen as a commercial failure when compared to Lawrence's other work, which still earned a lot of money and was in
Based in Las Vegas, CinemaScore surveys audiences every weekend to gauge their reactions to new movies and see what effect that might have on box-office returns; ballots have six questions. Other movies to earn the rare distinction are Steven Soderbergh’s “Solaris” remake, Andrew Dominik’s “Killing Them Softly,” William Friedkin’s “Bug,” and “I Know Who Killed Me” — so not exactly crowd-pleasers.
Still, it might not be so bad.
Five Things You Didn’t Know about Scoot McNairy
Adaptation (Spike Jonze)
It’s almost depressing to rewatch Adaptation in 2016, because it’s a reminder of how strong an actor Nicolas Cage is when he actually invests himself in good projects. It was soon after this that his career went off the rails, but he’s remarkably impressive here, playing the dual roles of Charlie Kaufman and his fictional twin brother, Donald. As much a mind-fuck as any other Kaufman screenplay,
Sam Shepard has sadly passed at the age of 73. We bid farewell to a great playwright, author and actor.
Playwright, author, and actor Sam Shepard, who spearheaded the Off Broadway movement, and starred in such films as The Right Stuff, Mud and Midnight Special, died on the 27th of July, the theatre public relations firm Boneau/Bryan-Brown announced. Shepard was 73 years old. Known for such plays as Buried Child, which won the Pulitzer Prize for drama, Curse Of The Starving Class and A Lie Of The Mind, Shepard’s 1969 science fiction play The Unseen Hand influenced Richard O'Brien's stage musical The Rocky Horror Show.
Shepard wrote 44 plays as well as books of short stories and essays. Besides his 1979 work Buried Child, his plays, True West and Fool For Love were also nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. 11 of Shepard’s plays won Obie Awards including Chicago and
