    Tribeca Review: Neil LaBute Goes Back To Basics In Spartan, Scintillating 'Some Velvet Morning'

    When filmmakers find themselves in a rough place, they tend to dial back their productions, usually by necessity, but also as a refresher course in refueling the creative spirit. Playwright Neil LaBute has had a rough go of it in his last few big-screen adventures: "Lakeview Terrace" was a half-bake...

    Neil LaBute Heads To Television With 'Full Circle' Plus Poster For 'Some Velvet Morning'

    The usual conversation about Neil LaBute, at least around here, is how the man who broke out with provocative fare like "In The Company Of Men" and "Your Friends & Neighbors" has turned into the unrecognizable guy behind stuff like "Lakeview Terrance," "The Wicker Man" and "Death At A Funeral." But ...

    Watch: Adam Brody in an Exclusive Scene From Neil LaBute's SXSW Premiere 'Some Girl(s)'

    After some odd directorial decisions of late (the contested, eyebrow-raising remakes of "Death at a Funeral" and "The Wicker Man"), acclaimed playwright and filmmaker Neil LaBute has mostly stuck to writing and making short films in the last few years.

    Sony Picks Up Neil LaBute's Agatha Christie Adaptation 'Crooked House'; Film Looks To Be Recasting

    It’s been a little over a year now since we heard that Neil LaBute was set to direct an adaptation of famed mystery writer Agatha Christie’s “Crooked House,” which he would be bringing to life from a script he co-wrote with Academy Award-winning “Gosford Park” wri...

    Adam Brody To Star In Neil LaBute Penned & Produced 'Some Girls'; Lands 'Welcome To The Jungle'

    Former “The O.C.” heartthrob Adam Brody has come a long way from his days of covering for bad boy buddy Ryan Atwood in the privileged California community. Since his breakout turn in the Fox drama, he’s stolen the show in everything from big budget blockbusters like “Mr. &...

    The announcement of new projects from some directors are greeted in The Playlist's headquarters with a robust cheer. These days, the announcement of a new film from writer-director Neil LaBute musters nothing more than a groan and an immediate game of 'pick the short straw' to see who has to go and ...

    Neil LaBute & Aaron Eckhart To Reteam For 'The Geography of Hope'; Ed Harris Also Stars

    Breakout movie roles don't come as memorable -- or repulsive -- as Aaron Eckhart's slimy performance as Chad in Neil LaBute's "In The Company Of Men." It was a wickedly dark turn in a movie that itself was blackly hilarious that lead to two more collaborations between the writer/director: the excellent "Your Friends & Neighbors" and the far less successful "Possession." And then the two parted ways. Eckhart went on to become one of the top leading men and character actors in Hollywood, while LaBute fell into a bit of spiral directing a string of bad movies including, at the bottom of the barrel, "The Wicker Man" and "Lakeview Terrace." But al...

    Neil LaBute To Direct Agatha Christie Adaptation 'Crooked House' Written By Julian Fellowes

    We have to admit, we were a little curious as to why Neil LaBute dropped out on the adaptation of his own short story "Seconds Of Pleasure" for director Mike Figgis, but now it looks like a reason has emerged -- a project written by an Oscar winner and based on a book by one of the most celebrated m...
