    Peter Sollett, Anne Hathaway Teaming For Romantic Comedy

    Could Be The Project 'Cover Your Assets'Peter Sollett is in talks to direct an untitled romantic comedy at Lionsgate with Anne Hathaway in the starring role. In the very vague logline, which sounds a little like it has a typo, Hathaway would play "a career woman looking to break her streak of losing romantic relationships to her job." This truly, honestly does not sound like any romantic comedy we've ever heard before! Anne Hathaway, breaking the mold! We're a little disappointed Hathaway would go in this direction, especially after "The Dark Knight Rises," where she'll probably be playing the fourth or fifth lead in a Boy's Club Adventure Mo...

    Toronto Film Festival - Day 2

    The thing that I've gotten from this festival so far is that this is a festival really about buying and selling. The cool thing for me is to look at all the great European films for sale and try and find a gem to see that might never make it to the US. I'm trying to find some cool under the radar...

    Because There Aren't Enough Fairy Tale Movies: Universal Hires Writer For A New 'Cinderella'

    Anne Peacock has been hired by Universal to write a new take on the "Cinderella" story. Again. We would say that fairy tales are the new superheroes, but it's not like studios are threatening competing "Iron Man" movies. Yep, Snow White has company, as if it wasn't enough that Relativity's "Snow Whi...

    TIFF '11 Review: 'Killer Elite' Offers Some Cheap Thrills But Not Much Else

    "Killer Elite," the new Jason Statham/Clive Owen/Robert De Niro testosterone tsunami, claims to have been inspired by a true story, and goes about setting the action in the early 1980s as a way of justifying its supposed historical validity. The problem, of course, is that the movie is so silly, so ...

    'Heroes Of Nanking' With Christian Bale Now Titled 'The Flowers Of War'

    Today, the Toronto International Film Festival was host to twenty minutes of "The Flowers Of War," the new film from Zhang Yimou seeking a distributor. If you're confused, thinking that the world was finally going to get a look at "Heroes Of Nanking," don't worry, it's the same movie, with Christian Bale as an American priest who helps a number of local women take shelter during the Nanking Massacre of 1937. The synopsis also suggests they "fight back," though the original title is much more aggressive than the new, more graceful one. Both are a bit too melodramatic for our taste, and we suspect to most this will be "that Chinese movie with B...
