Elisabeth Moss joins Blumhouse’s The Invisible Man

Update: It has now been confirmed that Elisabeth Moss has finalised her deal to join Blumhouse Productions and director Leigh Whannell’s (Upgrade) Universal Monsters movie The Invisible Man. Original story follows…

Reports are circulating that Elisabeth Moss is in early talks for a lead role in the upcoming retelling of the classic horror story The Invisible Man. Additionally, it was recently confirmed that Leigh Whannell will be directing and penning the script for the film.

Currently, plot details are being kept under wraps, but it will be part of a fresh push from Universal Pictures to create new films centered around their monster properties, which includes Frankenstein, Dracula, and the Wolf Man.

In 2017, Universal released the first picture in their proposed “Dark Universe” series with the remake of The Mummy. After the film’s negative reception from critics and audiences, many deemed it unlikely for the studio to continue

‘The Invisible Man’: Elisabeth Moss Joins Blumhouse/Universal Monster Reboot

‘The Invisible Man’: Elisabeth Moss Joins Blumhouse/Universal Monster Reboot
It would appear that “Us” won’t be Elisabeth Moss’ only collaboration with powerhouse production company Blumhouse. The Emmy-winning “Mad Men” and “The Handmaid’s Tale” star has joined “The Invisible Man,” a reboot of the classic monster movie that Jason Blum’s genre-centric studio is producing alongside Universal. Leigh Whannell is helming the project, which was originally announced as part of Universal’s Dark Universe — a venture that was scrapped after the rocky reception to 2017’s “The Mummy.”

It’s been a good month for both Moss and Blumhouse, with “Us” already raking in more than $220 million worldwide against a $20 million budget; its opening-weekend haul of $71 million is the highest ever for a horror film not based on an existing property. The studio behind “Get Out” partnered with director Jordan Peele once again on their continued fruitful collaboration, and Blumhouse may hope to begin a similar relationship with Moss

Christopher Nolan Teams with Robert Pattinson for His Next Big Movie: What We Know!
Fans of Christopher Nolan can now look forward to another film by The Dark Knight auteur — and it sounds massive.

From Memento, Dunkirk, Inception and Interstellar, Nolan is returning to the director’s chair with stars Robert Pattinson, BlacKkKlansman‘s John David Washington and Widows actress Elizabeth Debicki, according to Variety.

The 48-year-old is no stranger to building momentum and anticipation for his films by being extremely secretive — and he’s back to his old tricks with his latest film. The project has, however, been described as an “event film” on IMDb.

  • HeyUGuys
BlackKklansman’ actor John David Washington has joined the cast of Christopher Nolan’s next project at Warner Bros, while Robert Pattinson is expected to join any day now.

Even though the project is being kept top secret there is a major buzz around the production. There are no plot details available but the word on the street – and what you would pretty much expect from Nolan – is that the event movie is going to be “massive, innovative, action blockbuster, which will again be shown in Imax”.

According to Collider, Pattinson and Washington will play the two leads. There will also be an age-appropriate female lead, as well as an older male co-star.

Nolan has written the script for the project which Warner Bros have allocated a release slot of July 17, 2020. Nolan will also produce alongside Emma Thomas.

Production is expected to commence later this year.

Christopher Nolan’s New Film Casts John David Washington, Described as ‘Massive Action Blockbuster’
Christopher Nolan’s ultra-secretive new movie has cast John David Washington in a starring role, Variety confirms. Further details on the film are being kept under wraps for now, but Warner Bros. has already given the project a July 2020 release date. Nolan has finished the script for the movie and production is eyeing a start date later this year.

Per reporter Justin Kroll: “One insider described the pic as a massive, innovative, action blockbuster, which will again be shown in Imax.”

When it was announced earlier this year that Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk follow-up had been set for a July 17, 2020 release, the jokes already started if Tom Hardy or Cillian Murphy would be the first to be cast in the project. Well, today brings our first announcement of the ensemble and it’s going to be a first-timer in the Nolan universe.

Variety reports that John David Washington–who had a major 2018 with Monsters and Men, The Old Man & the Gun and, most notably, BlacKkKlansman–has been set to lead the film. Rumors circulated recently that it would be a romantic thriller that was North by Northwest meets Inception,

Christopher Nolan has tapped “BlacKkKlansman’sJohn David Washington to star in his next “event film,” sources tell Variety.

Nolan recently finished the script for the movie and Warner Bros. quickly dated it for July 18, 2020 — a slot the studio often reserves for the director, most recently with “Dunkirk.”

The gig has become one of the more highly coveted in town, even though most of the industry has been kept in the dark about who has been meeting for the role and what the movie is even about.

Although rumors are swirling that the film is a romantic thriller in the vein of “North by Northwest,” sources have denied those claims, keeping plot details under lock and key. One insider described the pic as a massive, innovative, action blockbuster, which will again be shown in Imax.

Fox Searchlight Hold ‘Splitfoot’ Seance For Kat Candler

Kat Candler will move into the haunted house Fox Searchlight project Splitfoot as filmmaker Antonio Campos (currently lensing The Devil All the Time) finally had a bit too many items on his plate. Variety reports that Condé Nast Entertainment’s Jeremy Steckler (The Old Man & the Gun) and David Greenbaum are still producing. After her Sundance preemed third feature Hellion (review), Candler sojourned into television most notably for Queen Sugar. She’ll likely rework this project, and we could expect to see casting announcements a bit further into the year. Splitfoot was originally written by Jt Petty.…

Watch: 'Don't Be a Hero' Short About an Unhappy Cowboy Bank Robber

"I got robbed... by a cowboy." If you were a successful bank robber, would your life really be better? That's one of the questions hidden within this short film titled Don't Be a Hero, from writer/director Pete Lee. Don't Be a Hero is about a middle-aged woman who battles her loneliness and boredom by robbing banks in the guise of a cowboy on her lunch break. But after the adrenaline rush wears off, she still has to deal with her deeply unhappy life. It's inspired by a true story - which isn't surprising once you see this. Missi Pyle stars in this as Lizzy Jo, along with Link Ruiz, Hojo Shin, and Ashley Spillers. This reminds me a bit of Robert Redford's The Old Man & The Gun, which has that casual cowboy bank robber thing going on as well. Thanks to Short of the Week for the tip on this.

Berlinale Talents Nurtures Emerging Filmmakers Worldwide
When Berlin Film Festival chief Dieter Kosslick launched the Berlinale Talent Campus in 2003, he probably couldn’t have imagined the impact it would go on to have. Now called Berlinale Talents, the festival’s development program for emerging filmmakers has seen 5,673 “Talents” pass through its doors — many of whom have gone on to forge successful careers in the industry.

Kosslick is being honored at the Berlin Film Festival with Variety‘s Achievement in International Film Award.

Take, for example, this year: seven films by nine former Talents made it onto the shortlists for the 2019 Oscars. Anna Wydra, part of the 2012 intake, produced the Polish doc “Communion,” which is in the running for documentary, as well as Kazakhstan’s entry for foreign-language film, “Ayka.” Similarly, Sandino Saravia Vinay, from 2004’s edition, was involved in the production of Colombia’s entry, “Birds of Passage,” and in Mexico’s “Roma.”

Robert Redford hints at less public role at Sundance in awkward press conference

Robert Redford hints at less public role at Sundance in awkward press conference
‘I think we’re at a point where I can move to a different place.’

Sundance Film Festival founder Robert Redford cut an almost outsider figure at the 2019 opening press conference on Thursday (24) as he said he wanted to spend less time introducing the event and more time with filmmakers.

“Having done this for – god, it’s 34 years now – since the festival started, I think we’re at a point where I can move to a different place,” said Redford, who stood alone on stage at The Egyptian and had begun by acknowledging the “vital role” of the press in giving visibility to the festival.

Robert Redford Leaves Sundance Press Conference Early
As always, Robert Redford appeared at Sundance’s Day One Press Conference moments ago to officially kick off the festival. But unlike in past years — 34, to be precise — he left after delivering a few brief remarks and suggested that the time has come for him to “move on to a different place” that allows him to focus more on the actual movies now that the festival requires little to no introduction.

“I think we’re at a point where I can move on to a different place, because the thing I’ve missed over the years is being able to spend time with the films and with the filmmakers and to see their work and be part of their community,” Redford said at the beginning of the hourlong press conference. “I don’t think the festival needs a whole lot of introduction now — it runs on its own course, and I’m happy for that,

Robert Redford Exits Sundance Opening Presser; Taking More Backseat Role
“Bye bye,” said Robert Redford surprisingly today at the Sundance Film Festival, exiting as the public face for the Utah gathering he founded decades ago.

“Having done this for God, 34 years now, since the festival started,” the Oscar winner told media and others on Thursday as he stood alone onstage at Park City’s Egyptian Theatre. “I think we are at a point where I can move on to a different place.”

Redford’s exit from Sundance today follows his announcement last year that Fox Searchlight’s The Old Man & The Gun would be his final on-screen performance.

“I’ve been spending a lot of tine introducing things but I don’t think that the festival needs a lot of introduction any more,” the leather jacketed 82-year old Redford added, noting he wanted to spend more time with filmmakers this year.

With that, Redford made a joke about his

‘Monsters and Men’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: John David Washington, Anthony Ramos, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Chanté Adams, Jasmine Cephas Jones, Nicole Beharie, Rob Morgan, Cara Buono, Grant Jaeger, Josiah Gabriel, Emilia Allen, Brian Pollock, Joe Tippett, J.W. Cortes, Giuseppe Ardizzone | Written and Directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green

Monsters and Men tells a ripple-effect narrative: from an eye-witness (Ramos) who captures a shooting on his phone, an African-American police officer (Washington) battling with his conscience to stand up against his fellow officers, to a local high school student (Harrison Jr) who transforms from passive bystander to vehement activist. With fluid cinematography that’s alert and expressive, the film explores the ramifications of such an event in a terrifying and poetic way.

Director Reinaldo Marcus Green’s Monsters and Men is a contextually subtle yet conceptually shrewd and powerful character piece. Detailing the haunting turmoil and fallout of traumatising moment of police brutality in three characters’ lives in

First Look At Casey Affleck’s ‘Light Of My Life’ Which Premieres At The Berlin Film Festival

Casey Affleck has had a pretty quiet last couple of years. The Academy Award-winning actor took a step out of the spotlight after sexual harassment lawsuits resurfaced in 2017, as Affleck found himself in the #MeToo conversation. Since then, he’s appeared in only a couple of films, 2017’s “A Ghost Story” and last year’s “The Old Man & the Gun.” But in 2019, the actor has at least one new film, the upcoming “Light of My Life,” which will have its world premiere at the Panorama sidebar at the Berlin Film Festival.
