    'Source Code' To Become A Weekly Sci-Fi Procedural TV Show

    While TV shows becoming movies is nothing new, movies becoming TV shows seems to happen less often -- until now apparently. The big to small screen conversion seems to be taking off in 2011, with new shows on the way or in production based on "The Transporter," "The Lincoln Lawyer" and "Anger Manage...

    Writer Of Relativity's Snow White Movie Admits Project Borne Out Of Desire To Beat 'Huntsman'

    Meet Jason Keller, the last honest man in Hollywood. The writer recently attended the premiere of "Machine Gun Preacher" and the party hearty Vulture were there in attendance and couldn't help but ask Keller about the still untitled Snow White movie he penned for Relativity. You know, the one that has been competing bitterly with Universal's "Snow White And The Huntsman" over release dates, with Relativity so desperate to come out on top first that Tarsem is already filming for a release date of March 16, 2012. That's right, he's got less than a year to crank this sucker out. And according to Keller, when he was first hired in December last y...

    You know, sometimes all it takes for a bunch of old white privileged people to learn how truly magical and delightful life can really be is a trip to a foreign country where those plucky locals may be living in poverty, but gosh darn it, they are just so happy. Isn't that inspiring?

    'Coriolanus' Producer & 'Senna' Writer Teaming Up For Formula 1 Film Based Around Ferrari Team

    For those unfamiliar with the Formula 1 racing documentary "Senna," the somewhat surprising hit takes a look at the life of Brazilian driver Ayrton Senna, who won three F1 championships before his untimely death at the age of 34. While fans of Formula 1 and cinephiles didn't seem like a natural mix, the doc has received acclaim from many outlets (including us), and become something of an international box-office hit. With the film catching many critics and audiences off guard, it was only a matter of time before those behind the film started earning some clout in the movie business. First up, is writer Manish Pandey, who's being picked by "Co...

    TIFF11: "W.E." Has Gobs of Deliciously Wretched Cult Classic Potential

    Madonna’s absurd “W.E.” is the most marvelously wretched film I have seen in quite some time. I wouldn’t go so far as to say it falls into the “so bad it’s good” category. It’s simply fascinating in its terribleness. At first it’s sort of painful, establishing its abysmally ridiculous “Julie and Julia” style narrative and trying to shock a sympathetic reaction to its entirely unlovable characters.
