another round remake

It’s the fate of nearly every successful foreign-language film — to be remade in English by Hollywood. But the turnaround came remarkably fast for Another Round, the stellar comedy-drama from director Thomas Vinterberg that walked away with the Best International Film Oscar on Sunday night. And less than 24 hours later, Hollywood struck with the news that a remake was in the works with Leonardo DiCaprio potentially taking the role played by Mads Mikkelsen. Naturally, the internet didn’t respond well. But Vinterberg is holding out a little more hope for the Another Round remake than the rest of us.

killers of the flower moon cast jesse plemons

While Martin Scorsese‘s Killers of the Flower Moon already has heavy-hitters like Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro, it looks like the lead of the film will be played by none other than Jesse Plemons, who worked with Scorsese previously on The Irishman. Plemons is taking a role that was originally intended for DiCaprio, but DiCaprio preferred to step into a more supporting part instead. Killers of the Flower Moon is based on the book by David Grann, which tells the true story of how members of the Osage Nation were targeted for murder in 1920s Oklahoma. Plemons will play Tom White, the lead FBI agent investigating the murders.

killers of the flower moon rewrites

Killers of the Flower Moon, a film that will reunite Martin Scorsese with both Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio, was supposed to start filming in March of this year. That didn’t happen, thanks to the coronavirus. And it seems that screenwriter Eric Roth has used that delay to work on rewrites for the film – rewrites requested (or perhaps we should say “demanded”) by DiCaprio. It was previously rumored that the film ran into behind-the-scenes issues when DiCaprio decided he wanted to play a different character. Now it looks like Roth is confirming those rumors.

Killers of the Flower Moon production

The behind-the-scenes saga of Martin Scorsese‘s Killers of the Flower Moon has been a bit of rollercoaster. The pic, based on the true story of a series of murders of wealthy Osage people in the early 1920s, was originally set up at Paramount and was supposed to start shooting in March 2020. Of course, the coronavirus destroyed that March shoot date, and then Paramount got cold feet about the film’s ballooning budget of $200 million. Apple TV+ then swooped in to save the project. Now, the movie is eyeing a new production start date: February 2021.

Island TV adaptation

Acclaimed writer Aldous Huxley is best known for his 1932 novel Brave New World, which you probably had to read in high school. (A new TV adaptation of that book is currently airing on Peacock, NBCUniversal’s new streaming service.) But while Brave New World explored a dystopian world, Huxley’s final novel, the 1962 book Island, served as a counterpoint, diving into the idea of a utopian society instead. Now Leonardo DiCaprio‘s Appian Way production company is set to make an Island TV series. Get the details below. Read More »
