Russo Bros Pizza Film School

If we were to ask the /Film readership what their ideal version of “living the dream” might look like, I imagine that “watching movies and eating pizza” would be one of the most popular responses.

hercules remake

Disney is hellbent on remaking as many of their animated classics as they can, and Hercules recently joined the ever-growing line-up. The remake of the 1997 animated musical is being produced by the Russo Brothers, and while it’s still way too early to see how things will shake out, the Russos are promising their take on the material is going to offer something new, and not follow in the footsteps of the recent shot-for-shot Lion King remake.

The Filmmakers Who Defined the Decade in Cinema

Filmmakers That Defined the 2010s header

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.)

I moved to Hollywood ten years ago and have seen from the ground level how the industry has changed, in both tumultuous bursts (the decimation of the mid-budget film, the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements) and more gradual changes (the rise of streaming, the utter domination of Disney). But as tempting as it can be to refer to the film industry in monolithic terms, the truth is that it isn’t a monolith: it’s a collection of individual people, and a handful of those talented folks have made themselves known in a huge way over this past decade. I’d like to take a minute to track some of those directors’ career paths, from virtual unknowns all the way to becoming household names.

tragic mistake

As the directors who introduced Tom Holland‘s version of Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Anthony and Joe Russo know how hard Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige had to work to reach an agreement with Sony Pictures to share that character on the big screen.

When word came out that that delicate deal fell apart earlier last month and Spider-Man would no longer be a part of the MCU, the Russos seemed resigned to it. But their outlook seems to have evolved a bit, because in a more recent interview, Joe Russo calls the decision a “tragic mistake” on Sony’s part. Read the full quotes below. Read More »
