    Marc Forster Will Be 'Imagining Nathan'

    Marc Forster hasn't been having a great 2012, though there is light for him at the end of the tunnel. While "World War Z" has become such a fiasco that the film's star, Brad Pitt, won't even talk to him, Forster is quietly lining up options that he can tackle once the zombie ep...

    Stranger Than Life: Zoe Kazan and Paul Dano In The Fabulist 'Ruby Sparks'

    Neurosis hasn’t seemed this adorably sane since Woody Allen. Clever, funny, expertly walking the line between arty and mainstream, "Ruby Sparks" is a lovable romantic comedy, with Paul Dano as a novelist who writes a dream girl, and Zoe Kazan – Dano’s real-life partn...

    Apparently The First 45 Min. To 1 Hour Of 'World War Z' Is Fine…The Rest, Not So Much

    When it was revealed that Paramount's “World War Z” was going to be heading back for extensive reshoots, we can’t have been the only ones wondering how they were going to shoehorn Channing Tatum into this movie. Ah, maybe we’ve got our Paramount stories mixed up here, but...

    Discuss: As 'World War Z' Gets Seven Weeks Of Reshoots, Why Are So Many Tentpoles Being Delayed & Reworked?

    Reshoots: they're the new principal photography, it would seem. Every so often, a story will crop up that some major movie has reassembled its cast and crew for what's usually referred to as "additional photography." And it's easy for that to be blown up into some kind of scaremongering story, when ...

    You would think Hollywood would've learned last summer after audiences rejected the mashup "Cowboys & Aliens" that mixing nuts and gum doesn't work. But try, try again right? So here was have "Cowboy Ninja Viking" (sigh) and with Marc Forster now attached to direct, i...

    Marc Forster Talks 'World War Z' 'Quantum of Solace' & The Risk Of Failure

    We love a chameleon here at The Playlist; few things make us happier than a director who's able to leap between genres and style with aplomb. And Swiss-born director Marc Forster is, if nothing else, a chameleon. In the decade since he broke through in the U.S. with "Monster's Ball," the helmer has ...

    TIFF '11 Review: 'Machine Gun Preacher' Is Essentially A Botched 'Rambo'

    In 2008’s blitzkrieg actioner “Rambo,” writer-director Sylvester Stallone recognized the real-life struggles of the people of Myanmar, dramatizing the struggle in a blood-drenched exploitation film that, despite its inelegance, emboldened the people of that region while lionizing a fictional hero of...
