Hiroyuki Sanada joins Westworld season 2 and Avengers: Infinity War casts

16 September 2017 12:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Japanese actor and martial artist Hiroyuki Sanada will be joining the cast of HBO’s Westworld in a major recurring role for season 2, TV Guide reports. In addition to the fact that Sanada will be playing a new character named Musashi for multiple episodes, the outlet also did a little bit of digging and discovered that the character could give the audience a closer look at Samurai World (park name unconfirmed), a sister park to Westworld hinted at in the season 1 finale. 

For this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Funko unveiled a wave of exclusive HBO-related Pop! vinyl figures, including one for a character of the name Musashi; he hadn’t been introduced on the show before and sports a samurai-appropriate sword, helmet and armor. Westworld clearly isn’t Delos Incorporated’s only venture, and the toy would suggest that at least one of those other ventures will get some »

Toronto Docs Dig Deep Into Celebrity With New Insights

15 September 2017 2:06 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When it comes to documentaries, the idiom — “out with the old, in with the new” — doesn’t hold much weight.

Just ask the Tiff directors behind docs about Eric Clapton, Sammy Davis Jr., Grace Jones, Jim Carrey, Andy Kaufman, Jean-Michel Basquiat and André Leon Talley. Each boldface name has garnered so much media attention that audiences might think they already know everything there is to know about them.

But the filmmakers, including Sophie Fiennes (“Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami”), Sam Pollard (“Sammy Davis Jr.: I’ve Gotta Be Me”) and Lili Fini Zanuck (“Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars”) managed to challenge the existing mythologies surrounding each individual and reveal new insights through new access to each artist’s lives and work. The result? A fresh, sometimes surprising perspective on people we thought we knew.

'The Accountant' Director Tapped for 'Suicide Squad 2'

7 September 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

In the summer of 2016, Suicide Squad introduced a new team of antiheroes to the DC cinematic universe. It proved to be a rip-roaring popular success, earning more than $745 million at the box office worldwide. Director David Ayer soon began working on a spin-off project, Gotham City Sirens, that would revolve around Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), leaving the inevitable Suicide Squad sequel in the hands of a director to be named later. Reportedly, the candidates included Mel Gibson, Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), Daniel Espinosa (Life) and Jonathan Levine (Snatched). In July we heard that Jaume Collet-Serra (The Shallows) was the front-runner for the job, but a short while later he dropped out of consideration, instead deciding to direct Disney's action-adventure movie Jungle...

Justice League Dark gets a new screenwriter

31 August 2017 7:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having been tipped as a potential replacement in the director’s chair following the departure of Doug Liman, Deadline is reporting that Gerard Johnstone (Housebound) has signed on to polish the script for Warner Bros.’ planned DC ensemble Justice League Dark.

The movie, which focusses on the supernatural side of the DC universe and reportedly features John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna and Etrigan the Demon, has not had an easy ride since it was first announced back in 2012, with both Guillermo del Toro and Liman exiting the project.

Warner Bros. had been looking to tap It director Andy Muschietti for the film, although he’s said to be moving straight onto the second part of the upcoming Stephen King adaptation. Safe House and Life helmer Daniel Espinosa has also been rumoured as a contender. »

Warner Bros. reportedly underwhelmed by director pitches for Justice League Dark

24 August 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks as though Warner Bros. has been frustrated in its search for a new director to take on the supernatural DC ensemble Justice League Dark, with Variety’s Justin Kroll reporting that the studio has gone back to the drawing board after being unwhelmed by recent director pitches.

Justice League Dark update: Studio Back to work on script after recent presentations by directors underwhelmed execs

— Justin Kroll (@krolljvar) August 23, 2017

Guillermo del Toro was initially slated to direct Justice League Dark, signing on back in 2012 before leaving to focus on Pacific Rim 2 (a project he subsequently handed over to Steven S. DeKnight). Doug Liman then took on the director’s chair in 2016, only to drop out earlier this year.

A few days ago, it was rumoured that Daniel Espinosa (Life) and Gerard Johnstone (Housebound) were on Warner’s shortlist, but it’s unclear whether there was any truth to this, »

Justice League Dark: two new directors linked with the film

20 August 2017 9:54 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Aug 21, 2017

Both Gerard Johnstone and Daniel Espinosa are now in the running for Justice League Dark...

The Justice League Dark movie, that Warner Bros is planning, has thus far lost both Guillermo del Toro and Doug Liman as potential directors. The pair had both been involved in developing the movie, with Liman the last to depart the project three months ago.

Since then, Warner Bros has been on the hunt for a new director.

It seems it may have found one, too. A new report suggests that – after considering the likes of Andres Muschetti and Damian Szifron (who made It and Wild Tales respectively) – that the shortlist is now down to Daniel Espinosa and Gerard Johnstone. The former is best known for Life and Safe House, the latter for Housebound.

The screenplay for the film – at least the current draft – has been penned by Michael Gilio, and it »

Rumour: Two directors said to be in contention for Justice League Dark

19 August 2017 12:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As with The Flash (now titled Flashpoint), Warner Bros. are on the lookout for a third director on its upcoming supernatural DC ensemble Justice League Dark following the departures of Guillermo del Toro and Doug Liman.

Well, it Beyond the Trailer’s Grace Randolph is to be believed, the studio has now narrowed its choice to two contenders: Safe House and Life helmer Daniel Espinosa, and New Zealand filmmaker Gerard Johnstone, director of the 2014 horror-comedy Housebound.

Justice League Dark was featured as part of Warner’s DC Films slate at the San Diego Comic-Con International back in July, and is said to be viewed as a priority within the studio, so hopefully we’ll get official word on a director soon.

Justice League Dark Director Search Narrowed Down To Two

19 August 2017 8:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Justice League Dark has been having a bit of a hard time getting off the ground. Once set to be directed by Guillermo del Toro, the project eventually fell into Doug Liman’s lap, at which point, it looked like things were good to go. However, the Edge of Tomorrow helmer shocked us all a few months back when he announced that he’d be walking from the film, citing scheduling conflicts as the reason for his departure.

Currently, Warner Bros. has yet to find a replacement, but from what we understand, the studio is aggressively searching for someone to fill the director’s chair and whoever they bring on board will “play a major role in the new” DC cinematic universe. For a while there, it sounded like It director Andy Muschietti and Argentinian filmmaker Damián Szifron were the top choices to replace Liman, but now we have another »

Rumor: Justice League Dark Director Search Is Reportedly Narrowed Down To These Two

18 August 2017 6:06 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Justice League Dark — believe it or not — is still a movie that’s supposedly happening. For those unfamiliar, this is a team of of superheroes who skew more towards the horror side of things. Some notable members inclue Constantine, Frankenstein, and Swamp Thing.

This is a movie that’s been in the works for around five solid years. For the longest time, fan favorite helmer Guillermo del Toro was attached to the movie, and in 2015, he unceremoniously dropped out of said project. In his place was Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman, but it didn’t take long for him to hop off in order to focus on the adaptation of the Ya novel Chaos Walking. Now, it sounds like Warner Bros. may actually be closer to zeroing in on a director for the film. According to YouTuber Grace Randolph, who runs the channel Beyond the Trailer, they have two »

Toronto ‘17: Docs Feature Stories of Boundary Breakers

3 August 2017 1:49 PM, PDT | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

By Thom Powers

“Resistance is a key theme in this year’s documentaries,” said Tiff Docs Programmer Thom Powers. “We pay witness to rebels challenging the status quo in art, politics, sexuality, religion, fashion, sports and entertainment. They speak powerfully to our times as audiences seek inspirations for battling powerful and corrupt systems.”

Tiff’s 2017 documentary lineup goes deep into the lives of boundary-pushing characters — Grace Jones, Jim Carrey, Jane Goodall, and Eric Clapton, to name only a few of the most famous. But the celebrity factor isn’t enough to make a great film. What sets these docs apart is their directors’ ability to a bring fresh perspective.
