    Jon Brion Tried To Score 'The Fighter' For David O. Russell, But The Score Was Scrapped

    At the beginning of the aughts, Jon Brion was the man for film soundtracks, especially the quirky and offbeat kind. He wrote the score for Paul Thomas Anderson's "Punch-Drunk Love" (and had done the same for "Magnolia"), as well as Michel Gondry's "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and David O....

    Mark Wahlberg Says They're Looking For A New Director To Helm 'The Fighter' Sequel

    Remember that alleged rift between Mark Wahlberg and David O. Russell? Despite their three films together -- "Three Kings," "I Heart Huckabees," and "The Fighter" -- and Wahlberg being one of the director's main cheerleaders (unlike, say, George Clooney), there may ...

    John Carpenter Wants Amy Adams To Star In His "Gothic Western" (In His Dreams)

    It's been well documented how much John Carpenter loves and is influenced by classic westerns – his breakthrough feature "Assault on Precinct 13" was an updated, urbanized version of Howard Hawks' "Rio Bravo;" his iconic Snake Plissken character is modeled after the western heroes John Wayne embodied; and his films often share a kind of compositional identity with early westerns with an emphasis on the kind of luxurious widescreen framing that Sergio Leone and John Ford employed. But he's never actually made an honest-to-god western himself, although 1998's mostly forgettable "Vampires," with James Woods playing a grizzled vampire hunter, pro...

    Mark Wahlberg Remains Pretty Insistent There's Going To Be A 'Fighter 2'

    The idea of a sequel to "The Fighter" is a cute thought. One has to assume high of the success off the picture (some seven odd years in the making) producer/actor Mark Wahlberg and director David O. Russell -- who have worked together on three films so far, "Three Kings," "I Heart Huckabees" and the...

    David O. Russell Says He's Ready To Write The Sequel To 'The Fighter'

    With "The Fighter" now on DVD/Blu-ray it's fairly safe to say most people have seen it at least once by now. (The film actually plays better the second time.) The true story of underdog boxer Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg) and his somewhat dysfunctional family was nominated for a ton of awards and ended up just shy of $100 million at the U.S. box office. But the real underdog story is the resurrection of director David O. Russell's career. After an unintentional six-year hiatus (where he eventually abandoned his troubled political satire "Nailed"), the writer/director reunited with his pal Wahlberg to take on "The Fighter" after filmmaker Darren ...
