    Robert Zemeckis In Talks To Direct Tom Hanks In 3D Toy Adaptation 'Major Matt Mason'

    HBO Adaptation Of Neil Gaiman's 'American Gods' Planned To Be Effects-Heavy Six Season SeriesThe colossal failure of motion-capture animation "Mars Needs Moms," and the subsequent cancellation by Disney on the planned performance capture remake of "Yellow Submarine," seems to have given Robert Zemeckis, something of a pioneer of the format, pause for thought. The director of mega-hits like "Back to the Future" and "Forrest Gump" hasn't made a live action picture since 2000's double bill of "What Lies Beneath" and "Cast Away," but recent months have seen him linked to any number of potential projects starring real people, rather than dead-eyed...

    Oscar Winning 'Milk' Scribe Dustin Lance Black To Adapt Green Day Musical 'American Idiot'

    The Broadway hit is no longer the dead cert for a transfer to a big-screen that it once was, but as ever, if studio executives see the queues forming on the Great White Way, they smell the kind of built-in audience that makes their lives easier, even if the path to the big-screen proves trickier than it used to be.

    Lee Daniels Eyeing 'The Scottsboro Boys' Musical For A Feature Film

    Lee Daniels seems to be taking his time in choosing a followup to last year's leftfield Oscar contender, "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire." For a while, it looked like all things were go on the civil rights drama "Selma." It had a killer cast lined up that included Hugh Jackman, Liam Neeson, David Oyelowo, Ray Winstone, Robert De Niro and Cedric the Entertainer but it couldn't manage to get the financing together, as the film got further and further pushed back until now, it appears to be off the map altogether. Perhaps seeing the writing on the wall, Daniels signed on this summer to direct "The Butler," a film based on the t...

    Neil LaBute May Direct Film Version Of Stephen Sondheim's Musical 'Company'

    For a man who's long been a giant in the field of musical theater, it's somewhat surprising that Stephen Sondheim hasn't been more of a feature on the big screen. Sure, there was his score for Alain Resnais' "Stavisky," a few original songs for Warren Beatty's "Dick Tracy" and co-writing the script ...
