This week’s question: What filmmaker would you most like to see try their hand at a horror movie?
Kristy Puchko (@KristyPuchko), Pajiba/Riot Material
I struggled with this question, because a lot of the directors I have adored have worked in horror, be it Tim Burton (“Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands”), Robert Zemeckis (“Death Becomes Her”), Edgar Wright (“Shawn of the Dead”), Frank Oz (“Little Shop of Horror”), Guillermo del Toro (“Crimson Peak”), Bong-Joon Ho (“The Host”), Jim Jarmusch (“Only Lovers Left Alive”), or Taika Waititi (“What We Do In the Shadows”). Part of what I love about the genre is the way is can be reshaped with vision, color,

According to Deadline, Driver has joined John David Washington (Ballers), and Laura Harrier (Spider-Man: Homecoming) in Black Klansman, which follows black police detective Ron Stallworth in Colorado Springs who went undercover in the Kkk. Driver plays a fellow undercover police offer, named Flip, who is known to be a perfectionist and anti-social.
With Lee at the helm — whose vital, urgent Chi-Raq was one of 2015’s best films — and the producing backing of Jordan Peele, Jason Blum, and distribution from Focus Features,
One of the most buzzed-up projects at Morelia’s Sundance Lab, “Noche de fuego” is produced by Nicolas Celis and Jim Jarmusch collaborator Jim Stark (“Down By Law”) and is set up at Celis’ Pimienta Films, producer of Huezo’s docu-feature debut “The Tiniest Place” and “Tempestad,” and also a lead-producer on Alfonso Cuarón’s upcoming Spanish-language movie “Roma,” and a co-producer on “Pájaros del verano,” also in post, from Academy Award-nominated Colombian Ciro Guerra (“Embrace of the Serpent”).

In all of these accounts, Weinstein seemed to think that the relative privacy of the hotel room provided him with a sanctuary in which he could perform deplorable acts on whomever he pleased, but the context was more specific than that: In every instance, he was at a film festival.

Directed by John Carroll Lynch
Starring Harry Dean Stanton, David Lynch, Barry Shabaka Henley, Beth Grant, and Tom Skerritt.
The spiritual journey of a ninety-year-old atheist.
Late, lamented Hollywood legend Harry Dean Stanton had the sort of face the camera practically keeled over for. Less a visage than an ordnance survey map of Hollywood history, Dean Stanton’s features were testament to his extraordinary 60 year career as a ubiquitous, scene-stealing support player in the likes of Alien and Repo Man.
Small wonder that debut director John Carroll Lynch makes such sublime use of the actor’s wonderfully weathered features in his lyrical small town drama Lucky. Indeed, Stanton’s face practically is the entire story, competing with the sun-baked, cactus-strewn landscapes for sheer ruggedness.
Named after Stanton’s central character, Lucky is that rare movie that gifts the actor a juicy lead role, comparable to his iconic desert-trekking loner in Wim Wenders’ Paris,

Six months later, domestic distributor Warner Bros., international distributor and production partner Sony and production company Alcon Entertainment are about to find out whether the Denis Villeneuve-directed sequel to Ridley Scott’s iconic 1982 original has what it takes to get filmgoers off the couch.
It’s starting to look promising for the sequel, which opens Oct. 6 and stars Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford reprising his Rick Deckard character from the 1982 film. Sony co-financed the production with Alcon Entertainment, while Warner Bros. handles the domestic rollout through its longstanding output deal with Alcon.
It’s highly beneficial that the original is held in such high regard, Rothman says, but adds that “Blade Runner 2049” is being pitched very much on its own, rather
