Leone Film Group at 30: From Spaghetti Westerns to Hollywood Movies

  • Variety
Italy’s Leone Film Group, the company founded by Spaghetti Western master Sergio Leone, has been on a roaring roll since 2012.

That’s when his children, Raffaella and Andrea, who now run the company, spotted a theatrical distribution gap left open by Medusa and Rai Cinema and stepped in to swiftly sign an output deal with DreamWorks. This, in turn, propelled its expansion.

The two Leone siblings hadn’t been idle before then. They were already among the top distributors of TV movies in Italy, having delved into that market in 1989, the year their father founded the company. That was also the year that Leone Sr. died.

In those days, driven by Silvio Berlusconi’s Mediaset, Italian TV was flourishing, recalls Andrea. “For us, movies are a passion; but at the same time they are business,” he says. During that period, “there was serious opportunity to do business in that segment.

Search for Top Talent Heats Up as Netflix and Amazon Increase Film and TV Shoots in Mexico

  • Variety
Epigmenio Ibarra proudly shows off the impressive new facilities of his 27-year-old production house, Argos Comunicación, located in an industrial zone outside Mexico City. He walks through one of six brand-new sound stages, a state-of-the-art suite where colorists are working on a series, a set-construction warehouse and more. A production has wrapped the day before, another will start the following week, and still another in two weeks.

Construction of the facilities was completed less than two years ago, just in time for the extraordinary explosion of the Mexican entertainment industry that followed the arrival of global companies like Netflix and Amazon. Not that Ibarra had an inkling of what was coming. As recently as five years ago, he says, the local television landscape was still dominated by Televisa and TV Azteca, and perhaps only five series were being produced in all of Mexico.

Today, Ibarra puts that number at 50. Many

The Hateful Eight: 5 Ways It's Better As A Netflix Miniseries (& 5 Ways It's Worse)

A few days ago, Netflix secretly dropped an extended cut of The Hateful Eight that turned a three-hour movie into a four-hour miniseries. Quentin Tarantino has since confirmed his involvement in the re-edit:

“Netflix came to us and said, ‘Hey, look, if you’d be interested...If there’s even more footage, if you’d be interested in putting it together, and in a way that we could show it as three or four episodes, depending on how much extra footage you have, we’d be willing to do that.’ And I thought, ‘Wow, that’s really intriguing.’” It was an interesting experiment.

Lionsgate enlists Fede Alvarez to assist Doug Liman with Chaos Walking reshoots

THR is reporting that Lionsgate has enlisted Evil Dead, Don’t Breathe and The Girl in the Spider’s Web director Fede Alvarez to assist Doug Liman on reshoots on the troubled sci-fi movie Chaos Walking.

Last week it was announced that “additional photography” was underway on Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley-headlined adaptation of Patrick Ness’ Ya novel at a cost in excess of $15 million, after studio executives deemed Liman’s original cut “unreleasable”.

The THR article states that Liman remains in control of the project and is directing the reshoots. However, Alvarez has reportedly provided Liman with extensive notes and the two worked together to plot new material. His role is said to be that of an on-set “consultant” for the duration of the three week shoot.

Quentin Tarantino talks Hateful Eight miniseries, reveals Django Unchained director’s cut is coming

This week saw the Netflix release of an extended version of Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, with the 2015 western broken up and re-edited into a four-episode miniseries, and speaking to Slash Film, Tarantino has revealed that he personally oversaw the creation of the miniseries cut, and has also created an extended director’s cut of Django Unchained.

“About a year after [The Hateful Eight] released, maybe a little less, me and my editor, Fred Raskin, we got together and then we worked real hard,” said Tarantino. “We edited the film down into 50-minute bits, and we very easily got four episodes out of it. We didn’t re-edit the whole thing from scratch, but we did a whole lot of re-editing, and it plays differently. Some sequences are more similar than others compared to the film, but it has a different feeling. It has a different feeling that I actually really like a lot.

‘Warrior’: Inside the ‘Hateful Eight’-Inspired Episode That Pits Kung-Fu Fighters Against Gunslinging Outlaws

‘Warrior’: Inside the ‘Hateful Eight’-Inspired Episode That Pits Kung-Fu Fighters Against Gunslinging Outlaws
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers for “Warrior” Season 1, Episode 5, “The Blood and the Shit.”]

Cinemax’s new Western action drama “Warrior” is adding to the renaissance of Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight.” Not only has his 2015 film been recut as a limited series for Netflix, but it also inspired the May 3 episode of “Warrior,” in which disparate groups of people become embroiled in a violent saloon shootout during a stagecoach stopover.

The episode marks a departure for “Warrior,” which is set in the 19th century Tong Wars in San Francisco’s Chinatown. Directed by Kevin Tancharoen (“The Flash”) and written by Kenneth Lin (“House of Cards”), the episode’s concept came from showrunner Jonathan Tropper, who wanted to “open up the world” of the series at its midway point.

“When Jonathan and I first spoke … we talked about a lot of Bruce Lee movies, but also just pulp films,” said Tancharoen. “Lots of Tarantino, a little [Robert] Rodriguez here and there.

Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek Movie is Still "a Very Big Possibility"

After director S.J. Clarkson’s Star Trek 4 was shelved because Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth dropped out of the project, the Star Trek film franchise has been in limbo. The shows being developed at CBS All Access are moving fast, but there doesn’t seem to be any momentum on the film front.

Well, it seems like the film franchise is about to pick up some momentum with the R-rated Quentin Tarantino Star Trek project. While talking to /Film about the new extended edition of The Hateful Eight on Netflix, the filmmaker said that his Star Trek project is still a possibility and that he’s going to start working on it again after he’s done with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Set to Premiere at Cannes

After some hestitation if Quentin Tarantino would finish Once Upon a Time in Hollywood in time for a Cannes premiere, the festival announced today that his 1969-set film would officially be ready to have its world bow there. Set to screen in 35mm, it clocks in at 2 hours and 45 minutes, but it’s not the longest film added to the competition line-up. The festival will also premiere Abdellatif Kechiche’s sequel Mektoub, My Love: Intermezzo, which runs a whopping four hours.

It’s also not the only Tarantino update we got this week.

Quentin Tarantino Probably Won’t Ever Revisit Kill Bill

Last week, Quentin Tarantino’s 2015 western The Hateful Eight was re-released on Netflix in the form of a re-edited four-episode miniseries subtitled the “Extended Version.” Subsequently, Chris Evangelista of /Film reached out to the director, who clarified that he was personally involved in overseeing this new cut.

Now, since Tarantino is in the habit of revisiting and tweaking his old works, some of you may be wondering if we can expect to see Kill Bill get a similar treatment. Specifically, many fans are still waiting for a proper release of the extended cut, titled Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair. First screened in 2011, the cut edits the two volumes together into a single, complete work, and among the lucky few who’ve seen it, many still regard it as the definitive version of the Uma Thurman revenge saga.

From the sound of things, however, Tarantino considers his re-edit of The Hateful Eight

Tarantino on Making His Star Trek Movie: It's a Very Big Possibility
As hard as it may be to believe, there's still a very real possibility that Quentin Tarantino directs a Star Trek Movie. We first head that this wild project might happen in December 2017 when it was revealed that Tarantino had a pitch for a movie set within that universe. J.J. Abrams took to the idea and it was brought to the folks at Paramount. It's been quietly in development ever since, with few official developments between then and now. Tarantino has provided an update personally and it sounds encouraging for those who would like to see this happen.

The filmmaker was recently interviewed in honor of The Hateful Eight miniseries that he personally helped edit for Netflix. During the conversation, Quentin Tarantino was asked if he really might make a Star Trek movie. According to him, after his latest movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is released this summer,

Netflix's Extended Hateful Eight Miniseries Was Re-Edited by Tarantino Himself

Netflix's Extended Hateful Eight Miniseries Was Re-Edited by Tarantino Himself
Quentin Tarantino has made his first TV show. Kind of. Recently, fans of his noticed that Netflix released an extended version of his 2015 movie The Hateful Eight. Only instead of just being presented as a movie with additional footage, it was cut into four, 50-minute episodes, effectively turning his snowy western into a miniseries. There was some debate as to whether or not this was something Netflix did on their own, or if Tarantino had some say in it. As it turns out, Tarantino actually spent a great deal of time with his editor personally putting this together.

Given the confusion, Quentin Tarantino recently did an interview explaining how the project came to be. Basically, Netflix approached him with the idea. The Pulp Fiction filmmaker liked the idea enough to actually give it a shot and, as a result, got together with his editor Fred Raskin and cut together The Hateful Eight miniseries.

Django Unchained to Get Director's Cut as Soon as Tarantino Is Done Filming Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

We recently reported that director Quentin Tarantino’s movie The Hateful Eight is getting a four-part extended release on Netflix, and today we have good news about another one of his films.

Django Unchained, which happens to be my favorite Tarantino flick, is his highest grossing film, as well as his most acclaimed, winning him the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, and the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for one of the film’s stars, Christoph Waltz. The movie clocks in at a hefty 165 minutes already, but here’s what the director had to say about the director’s cut he has been working on for the movie:

“But for instance like take Django [Unchained], I’ve actually cut a director’s cut of Django. That’s about like three hours and 15 minutes, or three hours and 20 minutes, something like that. That’s one I wouldn’t do as a mini-series because
