Explorers Reboot TV Series from Cary Fukunaga and David Lowery Set for Paramount

Joseph Baxter Nov 6, 2018

Explorers, the 1985 sci-fi film, is getting adapted as a TV series for Paramount by the impressive duo of Cary Fukunaga and David Lowery.

Explorers arrived anemic on the box office scene back in 1985, manifesting as one of several contemporaneous wide-eyed optimistic sci-fi films with prodigious child actors, two of whom were Ethan Hawke and River Phoenix. However, as the 1980s continues to be mined for reboots, it was only a matter of time before the industry revisited Explorers. Indeed, that is now happening in the form of a Paramount TV series. Yet, the names attached to the project might just give knee-jerk skeptics something to ponder.

Cary Fukunaga and David Lowery have been tapped to develop a TV series adaptation of 1985’s Explorers for Paramount Television, reports Deadline. According to the trade, the duo will collaborate on a script and pen the show bible, and it is

First Look at Hilary Duff in The Haunting of Sharon Tate

First Look at Hilary Duff in The Haunting of Sharon Tate
The 50th anniversary of the Sharon Tate murders happens next year, and there is more interest in the heinous crime than ever before. Most attention has been placed on Quentin Tarantino's upcoming epic Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which will use the Tate murder as a wraparound for its 60s set story. But there is another Sharon Tate movie coming, and today we have a first look at this true crime psychological thriller.

The Haunting of Sharon Tate stars former Disney princess Hilary Duff in the title role. And she has already been lambasted by Sharon Tate's sister over the movie. It's Margot Robbie playing Sharon Tate in Tarantino's film, which has garnered less vitriol from the Tate family. A first look photo shows what Duff has in store while embedding the character.

Saban Films announced today that they have acquired U.S. distribution rights from Voltage Pictures

Locarno Film Review: ‘Ray & Liz’

Locarno Film Review: ‘Ray & Liz’
Art imitates life “Ray & Liz,” the autobiographical debut feature by Turner Prize-nominated artist Richard Billingham; that’s nothing new. But it’s the way art imitates, reflects and recomposes other art — specifically, Billingham’s much-discussed photography — that lends complex layers of memoir and mimesis to this singular spin on the British kitchen-sink drama, preserving both the director’s childhood and his creative evolution in gorgeous, grainy amber. Collating multiple visual and thematic preoccupations from the director’s fine-art oeuvre (notably his bleakly intimate portraiture of his working-class parents) and filtering them through the ingenious compositional eye of d.p. Daniel Landin, “Ray & Liz” is formally arresting and rigorous, though not at the expense of its direct emotional force. Commercially, this Locarno competition entry is an uncompromisingly hard sell, though festival bookings will come thick and fast.

Familiarity with Billingham’s photographic output is by no means vital to an appreciation of “Ray & Liz,

Two young soldiers, Bartle (21) and Murph (18) navigate the terrors of the Iraq war under the command of the older, troubled Sergeant Sterling. All the while, Bartle is tortured by a promise he made to Murph’s mother before their deployment.

There is an emotional tale of war trauma, grief, and lost souls to be found in Alexandre Moor’s sophomore feature The Yellow Birds (based on the novel by Kevin Powers which more intriguingly is co-adapted by A Ghost Story director David Lowery) struggling to land with the impact of a mortar strike, and the dry execution likely has nothing to do with

Alden Ehrenreich Endures the Aftermath of War in First Trailer for ‘The Yellow Birds’

Alexandre MoorsBlue Caprice was a harrowing, stunningly-shot depiction of the D.C. sniper attacks. The director made his return at last year’s Sundance with the war/Ptsd drama The Yellow Birds, co-written by David Lowery, and now it’s finally getting a release some 17 months later. The delay seems to be two-fold as we imagine the distributors were waiting for its star, Alden Ehrenreich, to have his Solo break-out, and also, the drama comes up short.

Dan Mecca said in his review, “Moors is a filmmaker with immense talent, as demonstrated in his Sundance film Blue Caprice from a few years back, but the beats don’t quite align this time around. This kind of film is important and should be made and made often. Perhaps the problem is that this kind of film has been made, and made often, and made a bit better.”
