And hopefully, the upside could be to reignite the Marx Brothers and get their films fully restored, with blu ray releases.


What has been the hold up on that? The films seem popular enough to have warranted it by this time, are there rights or restoration issues?

I don't know that there are many things that I find less enjoyable than filmmakers trapped in their own alternate universes. It seems like such a waste of time that could be spent doing something original when you make stuff like Life During Wartime and this. Though I know it's difficult for Solondz to get his films financed, and this probably gives that process a nudge, so I can't fault him too much.

After all these years, there is still hope for a Deadwood-movie. In other, less exciting news (or are they :-k ), Dolph Lundgren is starring in an new Kindergarden Cop. Uncertain whether this is a sequel, remake, or a rebootmaquel. From the writer of American Pie.

Not even the first American Pie. Rather, American Pie 2 (and one of the direct-to-video spinoffs).

Biopic of the Kinks in the works, directed by Julien Temple.

No reason to think this will be good, right?

I'd say "Absolute Beginners" (not to mention Ray Davies' scene in that movie) would be one good reason.

Steve James (director of Hoop Dreams, The Interrupters, Life Itself) is shooting a documentary in my high school about race relations and the achievement gap. It's filming all year and he's turning it into a miniseries with no network signed on yet.

Roland Joffe to helm The Archbishop and the Antichrist, with Forest Whitaker and Vince Vaughn

Mostly I'm surprised to learn that Roland Joffe is apparently still making movies.

Holy shit, that cast! I can't wait to see what Carruth does with the budget that cast will net him

J.C. Chandor has two projects in the pipeline now. First is Triple Frontier, which previously had Kathryn Bigelow at the helm but didn't come together. He's also set to remake German crime drama The Robber

Lasse Halstrom's "A Dog's Purpose" is about a dog who realizes the meaning of his own existence through his own re-incarnation that puts him into the lives of many owners. The family film stars Dennis Quaid, Peggy Lipton, Britt Robertson, K.J. Apa, Juilet Rylance, Luke Kirby, John Ortiz and Pooch Hall. Releasing in January next year.

Something tells me this will not be very similar to My Life as a Dog.

Slightly off topic, but speaking of Hallsröm movies with the word 'Dog' in the title: I was looking through the imdb top 250 a while back, and there's a fairly recent Hallsröm/Richard Gere collaboration I'd never heard of called Haichi: A Dog's Tale on the list. I can't remember hearing about this when it came out (2009), but it must have made an impression on the imdb crowd. It's a remake of a Kaneto Shindô film, no less.

It's been in the IMDb Top 250 for a while.

Haichi: A Dog's Tale never received a theatrical release in the US, so it's easy to understand why anyone might not have heard of it. I've always been curious given that the story is excellent material for a weepie. Halstrom is also a directed I someone I want to like more. His filmography is wildly inconsistent but does contain a few very fine films (I think Once Around and The Hoax are very underrated).

I heard about Hachi in China, where it's probably more well-known than it is in the U.S. and where it's even among the top 20 on the local IMDb equivalents (Douban and Mtime). I won't claim to know what that proves about the Chinese filmgoing audience, other than that they don't hold Richard Gere's politics too strongly against him.

Michael B. Jordan to appear in new remake of The Thomas Crown Affair

Brilliant analysis by THR there:
Quote:
The move is an example of Hollywood's new diversity thinking in action as the potential new movie would go from having white actors in its incarnations to non-white.

Good God, why does that movie keep getting remade. Am I the only one that finds it something that has no hope of being anything better than largely mediocre?
