The Bringing Jeremy Lovering

The former Nicolas Winding Refn project The Bringing could be back on after all, just not with Nicolas Winding Refn.  Jeremy Lovering is reportedly in talks to direct the horror project, which is loosely based on the real-life case of Elisa Lam.

In 2013, the Canadian tourist was found dead in a water tank on the roof of Los Angeles’ Cecil Hotel — which so happens to be the same hotel known for housing serial killers Richard Ramirez and Jack Untwerger once upon a time, and for being a suicide hotspot in the ’50s and ’60s. Creepy. Hit the jump for more details.

inherent-vice-header-3

A second image has arrived from Paul Thomas Anderson‘s Inherent Vice. And while it’s very much in the vein of the first (above) the shot is a good chance to pass along comments about the movie from someone who’s seen it. I’m becoming tremendously excited for this one; just the prospect of having PTA adapt a Thomas Pynchon novel makes me giddy. Of all the things to fancast and dream of seeing, a proper Pynchon film has been at the forefront of my mind for many years. Every couple days now I just savor the fact that we’ll see this movie before the end of the year.

Because there’s no trailer, however, I’ve talked to many people who don’t seem to have a good handle on what Inherent Vice even is. In short, think of it like The Big Lebowski, only more shambolic and unpredictable, and maybe a bit more grounded from a visual perspective. For some corroboration there, let’s go to the source of this new image, which comes with quite a bit of talk about the movie. Read More »

Jennifer Lawrence Hateful Eight

You’ve seen Jennifer Lawrence hold her own in films as diverse as Winter’s Bone, Silver Linings Playbook, and the X-Men and Hunger Games films. Now she may get a chance to do some really grim work in the new film from Quentin Tarantino, The Hateful Eight, in which stagecoach travelers pass a blizzard holed up in a Wyoming store, where tensions between them come to a violent head.

(The film might be called The H8ful Eight, depending on how seriously you want to take the trailer’s title card.)

Young Ones Trailer

“From writer/director Jake Paltrow comes a futuristic western, told in three chapters, which inventively layers Greek tragedy over an ethereal narrative that’s steeped deeply in the values of the American West.” I’m in. Did I mention that the film has a great cast? Michael Shannon, Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult and Kodi Smit-McPhee lead this story. Watch the Young Ones trailer embedded after the jump.

Minority report tv series

Steven Spielberg is developing a small-screen adaptation of his hit 2002 sci-fi movie which starred Tom Cruise. The Minority Report TV series is being written by screenwriter Max Borenstein, for Amblin television.

Borenstein is best known as the screenwriter credited for Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla, but he is also writing Legendary’s King Kong prequel Skull Island. He was working on Disney’s secret project Paladin (never reported, but that was going to be a movie adaptation of Disney theme park ride Space Mountain), but sadly the project has been on the back-burner (from what I’ve heard) since the Mouse acquired that other little space-set franchise.
