    Joe Carnahan To Direct Pilot Of A&E Remake Of Danish Crime Series 'Those Who Kill'

    Fans of Scandanavian drama (or at least American remakes thereof) take heart. While AMC axed "The Killing" this afternoon, A&E is moving ahead with another murderously titled show in "Those Who Kill," and have brought on Joe Carnahan to help get it off the ground.

    Watch: New Footage In Featurette For 'Anna Karenina' With Keira Knightley, Jude Law & Aaron Johnson

    It seems folks are still divided on Joe Wright's undeniably audacious take on Leo Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina." After a trailer and a generous six minute clip, some haven't cottoned to Wright's approach, while this writer, at least, has fallen for what has been on display so f...

    Rosie Perez Joins Ridley Scott's 'The Counselor'

    Granted, we don't keep up with Rosie Perez, but that doesn't mean she hasn't been keeping busy. While the last time this writer saw her was in "Pineapple Express," just over a year ago, a fellow Playlist-er caught her awesomely praising (and then leaving) a screening of "T...

    Dustin Lance Black Penning J.J. Abrams-Produced Earthquake Movie

    Way back in 2008, J.J. Abrams teamed up with Universal to produce an earthquake movie -- not a remake of the 1974 Charlton Heston flick -- and tasked the original "The Omen" writer David Seltzer to pen the script. And then....that was pretty much the last we heard of it. But now a new writer is on b...

    Comic-Con Wrap: from 'Walking Dead' Zombie-Proof Car and 'Twilight' Finale to Marvel Panel; Costume Photo Gallery

    Comic-Con is great fun if you don't have to be in Hall H. I'd skip it and watch the panels on YouTube if I didn't want to see the early footage. The Hall H security was so tight this year that even the studio PR execs were complaining about trying to get their people in. I bargained for passes for e...

    'The Master' Moves Up To September 14th & 'Killing Them Softly' Shuffles Back To October 19th

    Well, this is interesting. It was just this morning that the The Playlist honchos were talking "The Master" over cups of coffee, and wondering what Harvey Weinstein's gameplan would be. With the film not appearing in the Venice or TIFF lineups, and with rumors of a Fantastic Fest showi...

    The Weinstein Co. Moves 'The Master' Up and 'Killing Them Softly' Back

    As the Weinsteins send mixed messages about where Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" will wind up on the festival circuit, we can now rule out New York. The new September release (9/14 limited and 9/25 wide) could still mean a Venice or Telluride bow or a screening at Fantastic Fest (...
