Cameron and Miller’s writer’s room included David Goyer, Justin Rhodes, and Josh Friedman. Ray is now coming on to polish the script that is based on a story conceived by Cameron, Miller, and Skydance founder David Ellison.
Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger are returning to the franchise with Skydance and Cameron producing the project. Plot details are being kept under wraps, although Cameron has said that the film will be a direct sequel to “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” since he played no part in the recent installments.
The pic is set to bow on July 26, 2019.
Known for his prestige dramas like “Captain Phillips” and “State of Play,” Ray is responsible
Sources tell Variety that the auteur has tapped Adam Driver, Laura Dern, and Scarlett Johansson to star in his next film. Merritt Wever and Azhy Robertson are also on board.
Plot details are unknown at this time, but Baumbach is preparing to write and direct the film. Netflix, who is handling the distribution of “The Meyerowitz Stories,” is handling financing and distribution of this movie as well.
The all-star voice cast includes Jason Schwartzman, Rashida Jones, J.K. Simmons, and Joan Cusack.
The film is a Christmas family comedy that tells the story of a desperate postman who inadvertently brings about the genesis of Santa Claus. The screenplay is written by Pablos, Zach Lewis, and Jim Mahoney, based on an original story by Pablos.
“How is it possible there’s no story about the origin of Santa Claus?,” Pablos said. “He’s one of the most well-known and loved characters in the world! We felt this was a story that needed to be told and that there was no better way than with animation.”
Tanguy Olivier, Gustavo Ferrada, and Marisa Roman are serving as producers. The film is co-produced by Pablos’ animation studio Spa Studios and Atresmedia
Sony Pictures Entertainment made a high-powered presentation Nov. 8 that included chairman Tom Rothman, Columbia Pictures president Sanford Panitch and marketing president Josh Greenstein, but the studio had to wait on pins and needles for more than a week before learning it beat Warner Bros. and Paramount to land worldwide distribution rights to the film.
It’s a significant win for Sony given its currently anemic slate, but to acquire the project,...
Anthony Jerjen is directing from Andrew Crabtree’s original script. The project is produced by Michel Merkt (“Elle,” “Toni Erdmann”) and Benito Mueller (“The Whistleblower”) and executive produced by Wolfgang Mueller for Barry Films.
Hartnett and Levieva will portray siblings as they try to escape the spiral of violence that has held them captive since their father’s passing. Their characters deal with a region left behind by the economy, in which selling drugs has become their way of survival and a business that’s very hard to quit.
“’Inherit the Viper’ is a visceral story of a family fighting to escape its destiny,” said Merkt. “I am thrilled to be able to tell it on this third collaboration with the incredibly talented director Anthony Jerjen, whose career
The film was in flux after director Zack Snyder stepped away in May following the death of his daughter, and filmmaker Joss Whedon was brought in to write additional scenes and oversee reshoots and post-production. Whedon made another change, ushering out Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice composer Antonius Tom Holkenborg, aka Junkie Xl.
"I got the call from Joss very last second," Elfman tells Heat Vision. "I got the call and it was, ‘You have to decide...
Since then, “Justice League” producers, cast, and crew have been in lock-step in their message: Whedon selflessly came aboard to carry out Snyder’s vision. Wonder Woman herself chimed in: “This is Zack Snyder’s movie,” said Gal Gadot in an interview with Empire Magazine. “Joss only did a few weeks of reshoots. He was Zack’s guy and knew exactly what he wanted to get.”
The jury, headed by British director Michael Apted, honored Russian family drama “Loveless,” with cinematography by Mikhail Krichman and directing by Andrei Zvyagintsev (“Leviathan”), with a Silver Frog, while the Bronze Frog went to Angelina Jolie’s account of the Cambodian guerilla war, “First They Killed My Father,” filmed by Anthony Dod Mantle.
The jury honored Warwick Thornton’s “Sweet Country,” an Australian outback thriller filmed by Dylan River and Thornton, with the Fipresci award, while “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” shot by Ben Davis and directed by Martin McDonagh, won the fest’s first-ever audience prize.
The gala closing ceremony at the Opera Nova hall in Bydgoszcz topped a week of 283 film screenings and scores of workshops, filmmaker talks and
Papamichael, who introduced the film, shot on Arri Alexa cameras using older Panavision lenses. Here he reveals how he and Payne were able to maintain the director’s signature style even on a large-scale movie.
Alexander Payne is known for actor-focused, intimate films. “Downsizing” is a bigger movie with lots of visual effects. Was that a big change for him?
It was definitely an adjustment for Alexander. When he and I shoot, we don’t really storyboard or do shot lists, we just bring in actors and see how they move
While not revealing much in terms of plot, the sequel appears to take place almost immediately after the events of the first film. Set to Michael Giacchino’s iconic theme, the trailer shows Jack-Jack, the Incredibles/Parrs’ infant son who was revealed to possess a multitude of powers at the end of “The Incredibles” after his family long suspected him powerless, using his laser-vision to chop off a slice of his dad’s hair.
“You have powers!” Bob shouts with joy as Jack-Jack cackles at his father’s funny appearance.
Craig T. Nelson voiced Mr. Incredible/Bob Parr in the original film, with Holly Hunter as his wife Helen Parr/Elastigirl and Samuel L. Jackson as Mr. Incredible’s best friend Lucius Best/Frozone. Sarah Vowell voiced the Incredibles’ daughter Violet, who can create

At a celebration for “Get Out” at Hollywood’s Lombardi house, producer Jason Blum said the film defies a neat category or label – and that’s a strength.
“It is all things: satire. It’s an action movie. It’s a comedy. It’s a drama. It’s a thriller. It’s a horror movie,” Blum told Variety. “That’s what makes it great, is that you can’t put it in a box.”
The critical response to the genre film has been very inspiring, Blum said, in part because it has brought an ongoing conversation about structural racism to the fore.
“The movie is making people think that you can really use genre to tell very, very

“As far as I know, he was in a bedroom with a 14-year-old,” Morrissey added. “Kevin Spacey was 26, boy 14. One wonders where the boy’s parents were. One wonders if the boy did not know what would happen.” Given Morrissey’s penchant for controversial remarks over the years, is it really so strange that he would go to bat for Spacey?
