    Walter Hill Returns to Features with St. Vincent

    Walter Hill is one of Hollywood's most neglected master action directors, mostly because he has directed more classics (48 Hours, The Long Riders, The Warriors, Broken Trail) than commercial hits. So it's good news that his indie-financed St. Vincent appears to be moving forward, with a July 12 start of production in Detroit. The crime thriller written by Cameron Young stars Pierce Brosnan as a hitman who disguises himself as a priest to kill a gangland traitor (Billy Bob Thornton). Giovanni Ribisi and Maria Bello also star. Financed by Premier National Studios and Quickfire Films and produced by Claudio Castravelli, Irish Dreamtime’s Beau S...

    Stone Talks Wall Street Dysfunction and South of the Border Tour

    Fox conducted Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps interviews at the Hotel du Cap cabanas by the Mediterranean on a grey day with drizzle in the air. I have always enjoyed talking to Oliver Stone. An unashamed liberal, he's a well-informed, gifted visual storyteller who, like Clint Eastwood, keeps hungri...

    A Brilliant Evening

    The best film of the 2010 Cannes Film Festival thus far was a 47-year-old one shown Friday on what was one of the most electrifying evenings in recent festival history. A superbly restored version of Luchino Visconti's "The Leopard," which won the Palme d'or in 1963 and has always been one of my favorite films, debuted as part of the Cannes Classics sidebar, presented by Martin Scorsese and accompanied by the film's two surviving stars, Alain Delon and Claudia Cardinale. The three-hour film was listed to start at 6:15 p.m. at the Debussy in the Palais des Festivals, and Cannes is normally a tightly run ship when it comes to maintaining its ...

    Cannes Film Festival Review: "You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger"

    "You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger" is one of those Woody Allen movies that bolsters the conviction that sometimes he doesn't spend enough time on his scripts. More a diagram for a movie than a work that feels fully realized or inhabited by real people, this London-set comic melodrama is poplated a...

    Julie Taymor Talks The Tempest, Spider-Man

    Writer-director Julie Taymor is in Cannes promoting her film take on Shakespeare's The Tempest, which Icon International is selling in the market. "Isn't it Disney?" I asked Lionsgate UK's Nick Manzi. He responded: "Yes, but not all over the world."
