    First Look: Terry Gilliam's Short Film 'The Wholly Family'; Will Premiere At Bradford Film Festival

    Before he gets to his stint at the English National Opera this spring, directing "The Damnation Of Faust," helmer Terry Gilliam will get his latest short film venture, "The Wholly Family," in the can. First announced last year, the film stars Cristiana Capotondi, Douglas Dean, Nicolas Connolly and Sergio Solli and is being shot on location in Italy, and not without good reason. The film is being sponsored by pasta company Garofalo as part of an annual series of films about Naples, and while details of what it's about have been kept under wraps, the project does have an original script by Gilliam and is not based off the Eve Merriam poem of th...

    Christopher McQuarrie May Adapt Anime Series 'Star Blazers' To Big Screen Feature

    If the last few weeks are notable for anything in the film world, it's the emergence of two billionaire twentysomethings who look to be giving a much needed adrenaline shot to film financing. David Ellison, 28, and Megan Ellison, 25, are the children of Larry Ellison, the founder of Oracle, and the sixth-richest person in the world, and have seemingly been connected to every other announced project in 2011 so far. Their first major foray into film production was hugely successful; pairing up to back the modestly-budgeted Coen Brothers western "True Grit," they've seen their investment richly rewarded, with the film taking close to $200 millio...
