    Walden Media Honcho Says 'The Magician's Nephew' Will Be Next 'Chronicles Of Narnia' Film

    Hold On C.S. Lewis Fans, No Deal Yet In Place To Make The MovieWhile none of the sequels have yet to match the $745 million haul of "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe," the team behind the "The Chronicles Of Narnia" films can't be feeling too badly. "Prince Caspian" and "Dawn Treader" each brought home over $400 million in ticket sales which isn't too shabby (though the former cost a staggering $255 million to make so no surprise the budget for the third installment was slashed considerably). So, all this to say there are still fans out there and while there is nothing yet in place for film number four, Walden Media head Michael Flaherty r...

    Meet the 2011 ND/NF Filmmakers: “Outbound” Director Bogdan George Apetri

    The march of New Romanian Cinema continues apace in this quietly gripping drama that steadily descends into a dog-eat-dog netherworld in which matter-of-fact exploitation and reflexive avarice are givens. Two years into a five-year prison sentence, Matilda is given a day pass to attend her mother’s funeral. In the 24 hours that follow, the camera tracks this determined and unsentimental woman as she relentlessly pursues her goal of finding the money she needs to skip the country for good. As single-minded as its protagonist, this brisk, hard-edged, and businesslike film bears many of the hallmarks of the new generation of talented Romanian fi...

    Rashida Jones-Penned Script 'Celeste & Jesse' Resurrected, Andy Samberg To Co-Star

    'The Vicious Kind' Director Lee Toland Krieger At The HelmPresumably, Rashida Jones has some kind of flaw. You can't be bitten by Michael Jackson's pet monkey Bubbles as a child (as she was) and come out completely unscathed. But she certainly doesn't seem to demonstrate any: the Harvard-educated daughter of legendary music producer Quincy Jones has made it entirely on her own steam, thanks to being traffic-stoppingly beautiful and immensely talented, both comedically (recent episodes of the spectacularly good "Parks and Recreation," on which she's a regular, have seen her stretch her comic wings) and dramatically (see "Monogamy," where she's...

    Bill Nighy & Danny Huston Confirmed For 'Clash of the Titans 2' As The First Synopsis Arrives

    'Eastern Promises' Scribe Steven Knight Rewrote Script, Gemma Arterton Nowhere To Be SeenIt's almost exactly a year since "Clash of the Titans" opened, overcoming some tough competition, a beyond-shoddy 3D conversion and terrible reviews to pick up a hugely impressive half-billion dollars worldwide. While filming has been underway for a few weeks in the U.K. on the yet-to-be-officially-titled sequel ("Wrath of the Titans" has been bandied about, but never confirmed), Warner Bros has sent out a press release to officially announce the start of principle photography, and it's confirmed a few cast members, as well as giving the first detailed de...

    Aaron Johnson & Taylor Kitsch Look Set To StarIt's kind of funny how things work sometimes. Last month when Jennifer Lawrence first entered talks to star in Oliver Stone's "Savages," a handful of other names were mentioned for roles at the time including Benicio Del Toro. In subsequent reports -- in...

    Brian Koppelman & David Levien Writing 'National Treasure 3'; Finish Script For 'City Of The Sun'

    You probably forgot, likely because you don't care, but last spring mega-producer Jerry Bruckheimer confirmed that a "National Treasure 3" was in the works and then we didn't really hear anything since. But it appears that work is now underway.

    'Dune' Is Dead At Paramount

    Last we heard, the writing was on the wall for "Dune." It was last November that it was reported that Paramount was given a deadline of this spring (read: now) to get a film into production or risk losing the rights to the film and with nothing having happened since, it's no surprise to now hear th...
