    Weinstein-Produced "Seven Samurai" Remake Finds A Writer/Director; To Shoot Later This Year

    It's not what we'd call "black cinema" but, come on... you can't call yourself a lover of cinema if you haven't seen Akira Kurosawa's 1954 masterpiece (actually one of many Kurosawa masterpieces) Seven Samurai.

    Nicole Kidman Eyes 'Our Wild Life' With Phillip Noyce

    Just before the end of last year, there was a little bit of an update on the Phillip Noyce front. While he ruled out directing a sequel to "Salt," we heard that he was eyeing the true life conversation story "Our Wild Life." And then that was all we had heard. The film has a bit of an interesting history.

Slightly more tantalizingly, Walter Salles (”The Motorcycle Diaries”) became attached to the project later on and Julia Roberts was rumored to have been ...

    Blame Canada

    Fucking eh. How did this happen? After two weeks of the increasing suggestion of a Conservative minority/strong New Democrat opposition, the Canadian electorate surprised everyone by totally shaking up the country's political landscape. For the better as Quebec rejected its political history entirely and gave a remarkable gift to the rest of the country by voting in the New Democrats nearly every seat in province (reducing the Bloc Quebecois to just 4 seats as a result). The rest of the country, meanwhile, couldn't quite join Quebec's orange surge. Though the cores of urban areas went for Jack Layton's NDP, most of the rest of the country t...
