    Peter Morgan Apparently Working With Hugh Hefner On A Biopic Of The Playboy Founder

    The life of Hugh Hefner is certainly one tailor-made for a salacious silver-screen adaptation but, up until this point, we've not seen it put under the microscope in any significant way. Brett Ratner had been attached to helm a biopic a few years back for Universal but, with things never coming ...

    Antoine Fuqua To Direct Heist Flick 'Chicagoland,' Eminem Boxing Pic 'Southpaw' Goes On The Backburner

    We're not sure how or why a thoroughly average director like Antoine Fuqua can keep stacking up projects, but dude keeps stacking up the movies on his schedule, and good thing too since another one has fallen to the wayside for a moment.

    'The Queen' Scribe Peter Morgan Says He's Writing A Heist Flick With The Scale Of 'Heat'

    '360' Pensmith Wrote The Story For Next Bond Film, But Never Got To Do A ScriptExclusive: Screenwriters can be typecast in the same way as actors, and if someone was to stereotype Peter Morgan at this point, it would be as "the biopic guy." He's picked up two Oscar nominations for films based on real people -- namely "The Queen" and "Frost/Nixon" -- and along the way has tackled figures as varied as Tony Blair (three times), Bill Clinton, Lord Longford, Idi Amin, Brian Clough and, not once but twice, King Henry VIII.

    TIFF '11 Review: Fernando Meirelles' International Love Story '360' May Leave His Fans Heartbroken

    In a photo studio in Vienna, a sleazy photographer (Johannes Krisch) is coaxing a young Slovakian woman Mirkha (Lucia Siposová) into posing for her first nude pictures.

Her younger sister Anna (Gabriela Marcinkova) tries to persuade her to reconsider but she has her mind made up. She needs the money and wants to change her life. Her sister intones through darkly humorous voiceover “If there’s a fork in the road, take it.” It’s a highly provocative opening for what ends up being just a so-so anthology of interweaving tales, even though director Fe...
