    British Helmer Julian Gilbey To Direct Sci-Fi 'Offworld' For 'Watchmen' Producer Lloyd Levin

    We were, to put it politely, less than enamored of British director Julian Gilbey's first two films, the thuggish, seen-it-all-before gangster pictures "Rise of the Footsoldier" and "Rollin' With The Nines." But the helmer's third film, the Melissa George-starring, mountaineering genre tale "A Lonel...

    'Bourne' Producer Developing Adaptation Of Jeffrey Archer Thriller 'A Matter Of Honor'

    We imagine that Jeffrey Archer is not particularly well known outside the U.K. Which is a shame, because he's a fascinating figure; elected to Parliament aged only 29, before giving it up after five years, he went on to become both a millionaire and a successful writer of potboiler thrillers (perhap...

    Trey Parker & Matt Stone Confirm A 'Book Of Mormon' Movie Is On The Way, But Not Just Yet

    Of all the creative types working today, one would imagine that possibly the least likely to threaten to pick up an EGOT (managing to win an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony, a feat managed by only ten people in history) are the gleefully puerile "South Park" and "Team America" creators Trey Park...

    It looks like the Coens are a little closer to getting their next film mounted, and with producer Scott Rudin -- who paired with duo previously on "No Country For Old Men" and "True Grit" -- now behind the film, it looks like the trio are gearing up for another run at the Oscars.

    Ron Howard & Brian Grazer Looking For Financing For 'The Dark Tower'; Javier Bardem Still Attached

    Is has not been a good time at Hollywood studios for ambitious projects. "At The Mountains Of Madness," "The Dark Tower" and more recently, "The Lone Ranger," have all been squashed as execs have been very reluctant to risk hundreds of millions of studio dollars (and possibly their jobs) to bring th...

    Watch: Paul Rudd Presents 'Our Idiot Brother: The Hangover, Borat'

    There is probably no better (or controversial) marketer or movie hustler in the business than Harvey Weinstein. The man is capable of spinning almost anything into buzz about his movies (see last year's NC-17 rating of "Blue Valentine" which he promptly turned into a rallying point around the film), and putting Harvey into the awards season with a project to shill is like putting together peanut butter and chocolate. It's a no-brainer. And while movies that come out during the rest of the year may not get the full Harvey Weinstein treatment, if they can turn a modest profit and live a long life on DVD and digital, the honcho is more than happ...

    Oren Moverman To Write, Maybe Direct 'Terrorist Search Engine' For Scott Rudin & Jesse Eisenberg

    Israeli-born writer-director Oren Moverman isn't just the owner of one of the best bald heads this side of Greg Mottola,, he's also becoming one of the most in-demand screenwriters around. Having gotten early credits on the likes of "Jesus' Son," "Married Life" and Todd Haynes' "I'm Not There," Moverman broke out with his 2009 directorial debut "The Messenger," which saw him, co-writer Alessandro Camon and star Woody Harrelson all nominated for Oscars. His follow-up "Rampart" is one of our most eagerly anticipated films at Toronto this year, and he's taken a number of high-profile screenwriting jobs of late, including biopics of Kurt Cobain a...
