    Craig Gillespie On Why Making 'Lars and the Real Girl' Wasn't That Different From Working With Disney

    On the surface, Disney's Jon Hamm-starring feel-good family film "Million Dollar Arm" has all the makings of a typical studio sports movie, but dig deeper and you'll be surprised to learn the project has some serious indie cred going for it.

    Review: 'Million Dollar Arm' With Jon Hamm, Lake Bell, Alan Arkin & Bill Paxton

    In terms of in-house branding, the "Disney sports movie" has almost as much instantly recognizable cachet as something like their animated princess movies or Marvel superhero flicks. Movies like "Cool Runnings" up through "Remember the Titans" and "Miracle" have the same general, crowd-pleasing form...

    Director Craig Gillespie Talks 'Million Dollar Arm' and Doing the Dramedy Dance

    Craig Gillespie is no stranger to offbeat drama and comedy, and "Million Dollar Arm" represents his greatest dance with dramedy. The inspirational biopic about recruiting two raw talents from India and turning them into major league baseball pitchers in less than a year also afforded "Mad Men's" Jon...

    Hollywood is still trying to make Chris Pine happen. Outside of the "Star Trek" franchise, the actor has been a non-starter, but that's not stopping Disney from choosing Pine to lead "The Finest Hours."

    'Lars & The Real Girl' Director Craig Gillespie To Massage Jon Hamm's 'Million Dollar Arm'

    After the disappointing returns for the unfortunately underrated "Fright Night," followed by his exit on "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies," director Craig Gillespie is dusting himself off and picking himself up. This summer he got attached to direct Will Ferrell in "The Flam...

    Craig Gillespie To Direct Will Ferrell Comedy 'The Flamingo Thief'

    2011 wasn't kind to Craig Gillespie. His remake of "Fright Night" was unfairly ignored (c'mon, it featured an awesomely smarmy Colin Farrell and was a bit of goofy fun with some decent thrills) and then in the fall, he dropped out of the forever developing "Pride And Prejudice...

    Watch: Super Bowl Ads From Bobby Farrelly, Craig Gillespie, Noam Murro, Jake Scott & More

    Ah, the Super Bowl. Where nobody cares who really won, but instead the post-game chatter is about M.I.A.'s middle finger (snore), Madonna's halftime show (double snore) and of course, the ads. In case you missed it, all the movie spots are rounded up right here, but guess what? There's e...

    Craig Gillespie Now The Third Director To Leave ‘Pride and Prejudice And Zombies’

Russell, for a brief moment had Mike White attached, and then seemed to be ready to go with "Lars And The Real Girl" and "Fright Night" director Craig Gi...

    Craig Gillespie Says He Was Attracted To The "Brutal" Vampire Mythology Of ‘Fright Night’

    Despite his art house pedigree, “Lars and the Real Girl” director Craig Gillespie -- who will tackle "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" next -- is diving into the genre world head first. This week he attempts to satiate the horror crowd with a remake of ‘80s camp classic “Fright Night” that he hopes will bring back the “ruthless vampire” from the depths of lovey-dovey romanticism like “Twilight.” Starring Colin Farrell, Anton Yelchin, David Tennant, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Imogen Poots, the film keeps the basic premise but adds a darker edge to the proceedings while relocating the story to Las Vegas. Add in some 3D and you have a unique, ...
