    Catherine Hardwicke To Direct '60s Brit Gangster Pic 'Diamond'

    After taking a sharp swing towards the mainstream with "Twilight" and "Red Riding Hood," it seems that director Catherine Hardwicke is determined to get back to the indie grit with which she made her name, with films like "Thirteen" and "Lords Of Dogtown." Ove...

    Catherine Hardwicke To Reunite With Evan Rachel Wood For Erotic, L.A.-Set Thriller 'Plush'

    Seems like Catherine Hardwicke ("Thirteen," "Lords of Dogtown") is trying to hone in on a grittier return behind the camera. After "Twilight" and "Red Riding Hood," the helmer was linked to an adaptation of the potentially franchise-spawning "The Maz...

    Women Directed Movies in 2011

    Yesterday, the Hollywood Reporter roundtable on directors made me crazy, but it also made me think.  While I will give them no leeway on the ridiculous comment asking the directors to name a major movie directed by a woman this past year, I thought it would be good to look at ALL the movies dir...

    Guest Post: Breaking Dawn: Part 1 High Heels, White Weddings, Broken Headboards, and Bella as Pregnant Martyr by Natalie Wilson

    While the first Twilight film was directed by a woman, all subsequent adaptations have had males at the helm. The first adaptation, directed by Catherine Hardwicke, featured a Bella that was stronger than her book counterpart. Alas, the subsequent films have not similarly strengthened Bella’s ...

    Catherine Hardwicke To Direct Noomi Rapace In Swedish Boxing Biopic Opposite Ex-Husband

    It was just a couple of weeks ago when director Catherine Hardwicke hinted at her next movie saying, “I have another project that looks like it’s going to go first. It’s in Sweden and Germany, and it’s really wild. I can’t quite talk about it, but we’ll probably do the announcement in a couple of we...

    Catherine Hardwicke Plotting Wild European, 'Thirteen'-Esque Project Based On A True Story

    After impressing early in her career with "Thirteen" and "Lords Of Dogtown," Catherine Hardwicke hasn't exactly lived up to her promise in recent times, getting behind the first installment of the 'Twilight' franchise and delivering the tepid "Red Riding Hood" earlier this year.

    Catherine Hardwicke To Direct 'The Bitch Posse'

    For a moment there, we thought we lost director Catherine Hardwicke to the tentpole world. She made a smash success out of vampire/human romance with "Twilight," teamed up with Warner Bros. for the egregious "Red Riding Hood" (which this writer already places on the Worst Of The Year list) and late ...

    Review: 'Red Riding Hood' A Brooding Tweenage Fairy Tale

    Catherine Hardwicke, for better or worse, has largely defined what we have experienced, cinematically, for the past couple of years. Her influence might get lost in the shuffle, since every subsequent film has been helmed by a different director, but with the look and feel of the first "Twilight"' m...

    Watch: New 'Red Riding Hood' Trailer Is Basically 'Twilight' In Olden Times

    We're beginning to lose faith in you Catherine Hardwicke. You came on the scene with a one-two punch with "Thirteen" and "Lords of Dogtown," took a paycheck gig directing "Twilight" and yes, we understand that your musical "Hamlet" with Emile Hirsch didn't come together, but surely you can do more t...
