Hogwarts wizard school in america

Everyone knows the best school for witchcraft and wizardry is Hogwarts, which is in England. But wizards aren’t only in that country. As we saw in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, there are wizarding schools all over the world. In fact, Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling recently said there are 11 across the globe. She’s confirmed a few more beyond the obvious ones but never one in the United States. That may change, however, when audiences see Rowling’s latest work, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

The author, who wrote the screenplay for 2016 adventure film set in the same world as Harry Potter, has teased that the film will reveal the name and locations of the American school of witchcraft and wizardry. Read More »

The Stand movie

The epic nature of Stephen King‘s The Stand has meant that a big screen adaptation is all but impossible. Several filmmakers have tried and failed to condense the lengthy story – which is about a plague that destroys the world, and the battle between good and evil that follows – into a single movie. All have failed.

Josh Boone, director of The Fault In Our Stars, is the current director attached, and it seems his film won’t face the same failure. In fact, the project just got a lot bigger. Boone, Warner Bros. and CBS Films are reportedly talking to Showtime about airing an 8-part miniseries of The Stand that would act as a lead up to The Stand movie, which would hit theaters after the series ends.  Read More »

Thank (or blame, depending on how you feel about it) Fifty Shades of Grey: Another famous piece of fanfiction is getting turned into a movie.

Find out all about the One Direction fanfiction movie after the jump.  Read More »

peanuts movie poster

Given how ubiquitous Charlie Brown and Snoopy still are, it’s a bit surprising to realize they haven’t been the subjects of their own full-length feature film in 35 years. But that changes this fall with The Peanuts Movie, which gives Charles M. Schulz‘s beloved creations a 3D CG upgrade.

On paper, that description sounds kind of alarming — does that mean we’re in for a cooler, sexier Charlie? As the new Peanuts Movie poster reveals, you needn’t fear. The gang’s all here, and they still look like their own delightful selves. Check out the Peanuts Movie poster after the jump.

paper towns trailer 2

Fox 2000 Pictures has released a new trailer for Paper Towns, the new mystery romantic drama following a young man and his friends who go on the “road trip of their lives to find the missing girl next door.” I’m mainly interested in this film because it was written by Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber, the screenwriters behind (500) Days of Summer and The Spectacular Now. I also enjoyed director Jake Schreier‘s first feature Robot & Frank when I caught it at Sundance a few years back.

 Vincenzo Natali Neuromancer concept art

I’m always fascinated with the stories of movies that never were (like Darren Aronofsky’s vision of Batman). So much work in Hollywood never makes it to the big screen. From pitches to development, to years of scripts, casting, and even screen tests, films have a long road before cameras begin to roll. And we only occasionally see remnants of these unmade productions.

Most common are abandoned scripts which have leaked online over the years (like Frank Darabont‘s draft of Indiana Jones 4). Sometimes we get costume tests and concept art, like has happened with Tim Burton‘s Superman Lives. But other times we get a glimpse into the pitching process, be it a video like Kevin Tancharoen’s ‘The Hunger Games’ Pitch Trailer or concept art for an idea that never made it into development. And sometimes a filmmaker posts abandoned concept art and it sparks the fire and a movie is reborn (as is with Neill Blomkamp’s Alien film).

Splice/Cube/Hannibal director Vincenzo Natali has been posting some of the early concept art and pitch work that was created for some of his unmade movies, including Neuromancer, Stephen King’s It, Swamp Thing and Predator. Take a look at the Vincenzo Natali Neuromancer It and Predator concept artwork after the jump.
