    Steve McQueen Discusses His Short-Hand With Michael Fassbender, The Influence Of Pasolini On 'Shame' And His Fela Kuti Biopic

    Not every filmmaker has a background as a controversial, award-winning artist. But film has always been intrinsic to Turner Prize-winner Steve McQueen's work  -- 1997's "Deadpan," for instance, recreated Buster Keaton's legendary collapsing building stunt in "Steamboa...

    The Small Screen: Chiwetel Ejiofor & Matthew Goode To Star In 1930s Jazz World Drama 'Dancing to the Edge'

    His name might be pretty much unfamiliar to all but the most fervent Anglophiles, but Stephen Poliakoff is something of a legend among British writers. He started his career as a playwright in the 1970s, before moving into television, which has hosted the bulk of his work, followed by feature f...

    Steve McQueen Teams With Chiwetel Ejiofor For 'Twelve Years A Slave'; Brad Pitt Producing

    There are a good handful of actors and producers around town whose name can "get things made," but there are only a select few who decide to back projects that ordinarily would be perceived as "risky" or as an unwise business investment.
