Film adaptations of Stephen King stories are never a sure thing. On the one side there’s brilliant stuff like The Shining, Stand Be Me or The Shawshank Redemption. On the other side there’s disappointments such as Dreamcatcher, Thinner or 1408. Then, in the middle, there are dozens of films that have their fans, haters, and everything in between. Long story short, with the name “Stephen King” attached, you never know what you’re going to get.
Now, an old short story of King’s has been optioned for a film and it already has a pretty good start. The Jaunt, which is about a family who explores teleportation for travel to Mars, has been picked up by Brad Pitt‘s Plan B pictures. Mama director Andy Muschietti is eyed to direct.

Let’s just put all the good-looking, well-established movie star types in one movie. Maybe that’s the secret to success for a financial downturn movie. Adam McKay is writing and directing The Big Short, based on the book written by Michael Lewis of Moneyball fame. The book is the story of “the build-up of the housing and credit bubble of the 2000s,” so it may be quite a departure from McKay’s typical comedies. Brad Pitt‘s company Plan B is producing, and now Pitt is in line to star, along with Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling. Read More »
During periods of his career, Martin Scorsese has enjoyed working with one lead actor over and over again. In the Seventies, Eighties and Nineties, that actor was Robert De Niro. In the last two decades, it was Leonardo DiCaprio. However, the three have never worked together on a feature film. That’s the gag in a series of commercials for two casinos in Manila, Philippines.
Scorsese directed the commercials, which star DiCaprio and De Niro as themselves, competing for a same role. However, these are not just commercials. These are basically trailers for a short film called The Audition that will also bring Brad Pitt into the mix. Yes, it’s a Martin Scorsese directed short starring DiCaprio, De Niro and Pitt. And rumor has it, each actor made over $10 million for the work. Check out the Martin Scorsese Leonardo DiCaprio Robert De Niro commercials below. Read More »

It’s not what happens, but how.
OK, it actually is about what happens, because a disruptor shows up to throw a little spice into the proceedings. We won’t spoil that part here, just watch below. Read More »
