At Close Range (1986)
This Past Weekend:
Bomb, bomb bomb bomb, Boooooomb! Things just kept getting worse and worse at the box office as this past weekend saw more new releases not meeting up to their potential. The horribly-reviewed horror movie Rings (Paramount) ended up around where I predicted with $13 million, taking second place to M. Night Shyamalan’s Split. The sci-fi romance The Space Between Us (Stx Entertainment) didn’t make much of a mark, opening in ninth place with just $3.8 million with about $1,300 per theater. Robert De Niro’s The Comedian (Sony Classics) tanked worse than many recent movies, making less than a million in 848 theaters or about $1,000 per theater. By comparison, the doc I Am Not Your Negro made about 78% of that amount in 800 less theaters.

What strikes as odd is the masterful roster of work Foley has accumulated over the years: The chatterbox character piece Glengarry Glen Ross and Netflix’s powerhouse politico hit House of Cards to name but two of his recent successes. Earlier in his career he made a name cultivating character studies that spoke to a different clientele than the Fifty Shades demographic, with the likes of underrated ’80s classics After Dark, My Sweet and At Close Range.

Nevertheless, Universal’s sights are on Foley for one reason or
Deadline Hollywood first reported that Foley was a front-runner for “Fifty Shades Darker” and sources now tell Variety that negotiations are expected to start shortly. Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are attached to reprise their roles, with author E.L. James, Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti producing. James’ husband, Niall Leonard, penned the script.
Execs had been meeting with directors over the past several months since Sam Taylor-Johnson, who directed the first film in the trilogy, announced that she would not be returning to helm.
Production will begin in the first quarter of 2016, with the film set to bow on Feb. 14, 2017. Casting should get under way once Foley’s deal is worked out.
Foley directed several stylish dramas in the 1980s and ’90s,
A fascinating year for film, 1986. It was a time when a glossy, expensive movie about handsome men in planes could dominate the box-office, sure (that would be Top Gun). But it was also a year when Oliver Stone went off with just $6m and came back with Platoon, one of the biggest hits of the year both financially and in terms of accolades. It was also a period when the British movie industry was briefly back on its feet, resulting in a new golden age of great films - one or two of them are even on this list.
As ever, there were certain films that, despite their entertainment value or genuine brilliance in terms of movie making, somehow managed to slip through the net. So to redress the balance a little,
This report also reveals that he may also sign on to direct the third installment, Fifty Shades Freed, which has been given a February 9, 2018 release date. The studio is still working out whether or not they should shoot both Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed back-to-back. Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are coming back to reprise their roles as Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.
Negotiations haven't started yet for James Foley to take the helm,
While no offer has been delivered, sources tell Variety that James Foley is the frontrunner to land the “Fifty Shades Darker” job and that an offer should be delivered shortly for the TV and film helmer, who has most recently worked on “House of Cards.”

Production will begin in the first quarter of 2016, with the film set to bow on Feb. 14, 2017, so Foley will have time to assess the script and form his strategy.
Known as one of the best readers and script advisers in Hollywood, she helped launch screenwriters including Steve Zaillian, Ron Shelton, Craig Bolotin, Blake Herron and Jordan Roberts.
As production executive at Orion, she worked on development and production of films including “Cherry 2000,” “At Close Range,” “Desperately Seeking Susan,” “Breathless,” “The Falcon and the Snowman,” “Under Fire,” “RoboCop” and “The Terminator.” She later served as a production exec at A Band Apart and Lawrence Bender Productions, and had producing credits on “Knockaround Guys” and “Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights.”
After attending Princeton, the New York native started out as a script reader and worked at Ray Stark Productions and for TriStar. Kirkham was partnered with her husband, producer Elliot Lewitt, in Kirkham-Lewitt Productions.

7.19 Habeas Corpse
This week’s episode, Habeas Corpse, is a bit of a head-scratcher because it is the reverse of what we usually see on Castle. As I’ve spent the last couple of years documenting, Castle is a barely passable procedural largely held together by the chemistry of its cast, its larger story-arcs, and the charm of the occasional standout episode. It is, of course, wholly enjoyable, but the quality is not generally to be found in the cases solved by its protagonists.
This week, however, it is the case that shines brightest, and not just because what surrounds it is so disappointing.
That case revolves around the death of an ambulance-chasing lawyer (in this case, almost literally, in that he at least finds his clients at the final

7.18 At Close Range
Yes, we love Caskett. Caskett is the reason we watch Castle. But it’s certainly not the only ‘ship we enjoy. When the writers have made us crazy by keeping Caskett apart and we’d thought, “Screw this, I’m out!” who kept us coming back?
That’s right: the bromance of Ryan and Esposito. They are just as funny, just as smart, and just as devoted (both to each other and Rick and Kate) as Caskett, but they never, ever break up or pretend not to hear the other when hovering near death. They always come through, even when that other couple leave us hanging, angry and/or frustrated.
And why not? Ryan and Esposito are both stand-up guys, dedicated to their jobs,
