    Wayne Kramer To Direct Futuristic 'Ecstasia'

    Wayne Kramer: overrated or underrated? Depends who you ask. He made a name for himself with the indie "The Cooler" and followed it up with post-Tarantino multi-strand Paul Walker thriller "Running Scared" which in this writer's opinion doesn't deserve the cult following the film has. After that, Kramer switched it up again with the political drama "Crossing Over" which found him battling with the Weinsteins who ultimately buried the film. Earlier this year, Kramer was tapped to direct the Sylvester Stallone vehicle "Headshots" but later bowed out over "creative differences" with word that he had his another project brewing that was close to g...

    'American Psycho' Director Mary Harron Gets 'Wicked Lovely'

    Mary Harron came into the film world in a blaze of glory. With a one-two punch of the colorful "I Shot Andy Warhol" followed up with the contemporary classic "American Psycho," it seemed that the director was a vibrant, exciting new voice, but her subsequent efforts failed to live up to that promise...

But before we get to that, let's just re-cap for a second shall we? Last fall, came first word that Keira Knightley would re-team with her "Atonement" and "Pride & Prejudice" director for the film. Then, this spring, Jude Law and Aaron Johnson came aboard with Joe Wright later saying that Kelly Macdonald and Benedict Cumberbatch had joined the film, and that he was waiting on Saoirse ...

    Cannes Restless Reaction: Managing Expectations for Van Sant Tweener, Silent Version on DVD

    Sony knew that Gus Van Sant's Restless was a tweener. It's neither an art film that plays for highbrow critics looking for discovery or depth, nor a mainstream entertainment aimed at teens. The movie is what it is: a sweet unpretentious coming-of-age love story that doesn't over-reach.

    Mike Mills on "Beginners," a Love Letter to his Father
