That was fast!
Plummer is always great.
He’s often cocky about it but Ridley does deliver on deadlines and budgets. All the more impressive when he’s 79 years old. They always look good too (even if the stories don’t always work).
It’s kind of unbelievable that he’s still going at that age. My dad’s turned eighty this year, and he definitely couldn’t work in a high-pressure environment anymore.
That looks intriguing. And I usually trust the Cannes recommendations.
I somehow haven’t seen Lynne Ramsay’s movies yet. I was interested in We Need to Talk About Kevin, but missed it.
Oh, man. It’s a rough one. Well made, and quite good, but not easy to watch, and I imagine it’s far harder to watch as a father.
This could be an epic film, I liked the animated version, but the story is very rich.
I like this image a bit better than the one Deadline went with;
She looks more dramatic there.
I prefer the first trailer, I was looking forward to a drama, not a thriller.
Same. Also, it’s weird but Plummer’s reading of the character is way different in the few clips we’ve seen. I think I liked Spacey’s harsh demeanor for Getty a bit more.
Wait till next year and you can see what you’re looking for on TV:
Warner Bros is looking for a new action franchise;
‘Cleopatra Jones’ Back At Warner Bros; Misha Green Writing, Producing
Warner Bros is reviving Cleopatra Jones, the 1973 blaxploitation female empowerment film that starred Tamara Dobson as the undercover government agent who used the day job of supermodel as her cover and an excuse to travel to exotic places. The studio has set Misha Green to write the script and produce a film that will present the heroine very much as the female answer to James Bond. Those comparisons were made when the original hit film was released, partly because Jones was so adept at martial arts and drove a Corvette Stingray fully equipped with automatic weapons.
Green is the co-creator, writer and exec producer of the WGN series Underground, who is now working with exec producers Jordan Peele and JJ Abrams on Lovecraft. She is co-creator, writer and exec producer of the upcoming HBO series. She is also writer and producer of the Netflix film The Mother.
Niija Kuykendall will oversee for Warner Bros. Green is repped by CAA and Del, Shaw, Moonves.
The deal comes after Sony set a new version of Super Fly and as New Line preps a reprise of Shaft that Tim Story will direct with Samuel L. Jackson returning as the original Shaft’s nephew, with Jessie T. Usher playing his son, and Richard Roundtree, who originated the character, back as well. Netflix acquired the foreign on that film, and will play it on its international streaming service two weeks after it opens.
20th Century Fox is mounting a potential new family film franchise based on BOOM! Studios’ female detective graphic novel series, Goldie Vance, with Kerry Washington’s Simpson Street producing and Rashida Jones on board to adapt and direct the feature.
Created by Eisner award-winning writer Hope Larson and artist Brittney Williams, the story, set at a historical Miami resort, follows sixteen-year-old Goldie Vance, a mixed race, precocious and highly detail-oriented teenager with ambitions of becoming the hotel’s in-house detective; but getting embroiled in uncovering an international crime ring will challenge her in ways she never imagined.
I read the first arc of the comic, and it was pretty enjoyable.
It’s a shame there hasn’t been any recent update on the Lumberjanes movie though.
Now I’m imagining a Fred, Shaggy, and Scooby movie that’s like that one of the pointedly comedic episodes of Supernatural but with a talking dog.
There’s your cinematic universe.
I think some folks have kind of lost track of why we draw funny cartoons in the first place.
Yeah, but they also lost track of the fact that the Scooby Gang was actually pretty annoying and intrusive, which I feel needs a resurgence too.
