Based on Peter Moffat‘s 2008 BBC series Criminal Justice, HBO’s upcoming remake of The Night Of has no shortage of talent behind it. Academy Award-winning screenwriter Steven Zaillian (Schindler’s List) directed nearly all eight episodes of the miniseries, making this is his first directorial effort in over a decade since the critical and financial misfire All the King’s Men. The director’s latest effort, which stars John Turturro (Fading Gigolo) and Riz Ahmed (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), looks significantly more appealing than that remake.
Below, watch The Night Of trailer.

HBO’s The Night Of represents screenwriter Steven Zaillian‘s return to the director’s chair. Zaillian hasn’t shot a feature film since All the King’s Men, and although that 2006 remake is a notable misfire, his directional debut, Searching for Bobby Fischer, is reason enough to want to see him direct again. The Academy Award-winning screenwriter responsible for Schindler’s List and American Gangster is, thankfully, back at it, having helmed eight out of the nine episodes of HBO’s upcoming miniseries.
The Night Of, which stars John Turturro and Riz Ahmed (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), premieres this summer. Watch The Night Of teaser trailer below.

The first Star Wars Anthology film, Rogue One, to be directed by Gareth Edwards, is sounding like an anomaly in the Star Wars lineup. The movie has been positioned explicitly as a war film, and the teaser trailer shown at Star Wars Celebration featured a vibe that is more serious, even adult, than any other Star Wars project to date. And there’s the cast, which is so far led by Felicity Jones, who we know plays a Rebel fighter.
Now Riz Ahmed (above, with Jake Gyllenhaal in Nightcrawler) is reported to be in the Rogue One cast as well. Additionally, Sam Claflin is reportedly circling a role. Read More »
You’ve got to hand it to Michael Winterbottom: he’s a prolific director who isn’t afraid to experiment. The results of his experiments are pretty hit and miss, but he’s got as many hits as misses, and that’s a better track record than many can boast.
His latest is Trishna, which is also his third Thomas Hardy adaptation. In this case the source material is Tess of the d’Urbervilles, with the story set in modern India rather than late 1800s England. The story follows the relationship between Jay (Riz Ahmed), the wealthy son of a hotelier , and working class girl Trishna (Freida Pinto). Their affair may be doomed, but the trailer for Trishna is quite pretty, and should be enough to make this romance look quite appealing. Read More »
