Lincoln Center Chaplin Gala To Fete Robert Redford

Lincoln Center Chaplin Gala To Fete Robert Redford
Has any contemporary movie star more intriguingly chafed at the gilded prison of stardom than Robert Redford? Certainly, he was not the first — or the last — matinee idol who endeavored to show us there was more to him than just a pretty face (or, in Redford’s particular case, that California tan, those blazing baby blues, and that wonderfully, ridiculously tousled hair).

Some actors, so inclined, stretch themselves in their choice of material; others add producing, directing, and even political activism to the mix. But “Bob” did all that and still felt somehow unfulfilled. So, rather like a fussy housewife forever rearranging the living room furniture, he gazed out at a sizable property he owned in the mountains of Utah and thought that an institute devoted to the cultivation and support of American independent filmmakers might look awfully nice over there.

If Sundance now seems nearly as iconic as Redford himself,

Amazon Renews Bosch For Second Season After Impressive Performance

Not only has Bosch, Amazon‘s original drama series, performed well for the service, it’s managed high praise from viewers and critics. Amazon has now announced a second season, and even a bit of a plot synopsis for that season.

If you aren’t already on board with the stylish, intense series based on Michael Connelly’s books, you now have even more incentive, as you know there’s more on the way.

This is actually a bigger announcement than it might seem, because new seasons are still a guessing game for streaming services, which don’t have a history for viewers to fall back on when it comes to being able to figure out if a favorite is worth investing in. I know a lot of people weren’t sure about jumping into Alpha House at first, for just that reason.

At any rate, you have more to look forward to,

Interview: A conversation with Endangered screenwriter Jack Reher

Zachary Leeman chats with Jack Reher about the upcoming film Endangered, his adaptation of Pin, and the art of screenwriting...

Zachary Leeman: Before we get to your upcoming movie Endangered, let's talk about screenwriting in general. Walk me through the moment you went from aspiring writer to a paid screenwriter with people like Billy Bob Thornton reading your work...

Jack Reher: Man, that's a hole and the white rabbit got pretty damned bloody while stumbling down it. I was doing my undergrad at the University of Minnesota. Business. I had that career plan. You know? Always stayed grounded. On a whim, I signed up for a screenwriting class taught by Thomas Pope who did fairly well early on in his career - fresh out of USC, he was hired to draft Dune with Ridley Scott directing. Scott left, as did Pope, then Lynch came on. He also did work

While Dwayne Johnson may be the big draw in Ric Roman Waugh's Snitch, Benjamin Bratt gets to play the big bad behind the scenes. During a recent interview for the film, Bratt talked about his history with Waugh, the authenticity that the director brings to the picture, the thin line separating crops from criminals, starring in an antagonistic role and going up against the physically imposing Johnson.

A few new posters for some upcoming releases have landed online. Briefly: Snitch – The first poster for director Ric Roman Waugh’s action-thriller puts Dwayne Johnson’s DEA informant character front and center. The film opens on February 22nd. The Last Exorcism Part II – I’m not exactly sure how a film with “last” in the title can have a sequel, but the first poster for the horror follow-up has some twisty fun with teasing the number 2. The film opens on March 1st. Parker – The final poster for the Jason Statham-led actioner highlight’s Statham’s gun-handling abilities and Jennifer Lopez’s, um, behind. The film opens on January 25th. Monsters University – A playful Spanish poster for Pixar’s upcoming sequel promises “a monstrous summer.” The film opens in 3D on June 21st.

Watch Snitch Trailer, Starring Dwayne Johnson

  • Filmofilia
The first trailer has arrived for Dwayne Johnson‘s new actioner Snitch, which doesn’t feature as much guy-shooting as you might think.

Coming from veteran stunt coordinator Ric Roman Waugh the flick follows Johnson as a father who becomes an undercover DEA informant in order to keep his son from going to jail after being wrongfully convicted on a drug charge.

I mean we know it doesn’t work with the court, so Rock will have to take matters into his own hands once more.

Inspired by true events, the film also stars Susan Sarandon, Benjamin Bratt, Jon Bernthal, Nadine Velasquez and Barry Pepper. Snitch feels a little beneath Johnson’s potential, but hits theaters on February 22nd, 2013.

First Trailer for Snitch Starring Dwayne Johnson

  • Collider.com
Judging by the trailer for Snitch, mandatory minimums are a great law-enforcement strategy as long as you force Dwayne Johnson to be an untrained undercover informant. Johnson plays a father who, in order to keep his son from going to jail, is forced to work with the feds to take down a drug kingpin (Benjamin Bratt). Snitch could end up being a bunch of goofy, B-movie fun especially with a strong supporting cast that includes Michael Kenneth Williams, Barry Pepper, Harold Perrineau, and Susan Sarandon. Or, it could be Faster. I'm hoping it’s the former. Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Snitch opens February 22, 2013. Click over to Yahoo! Movies to see the trailer in HD.

Susan Sarandon Joining Dwayne Johnson for the New Thriller 'Snitch'

She's a stone cold fox. He's The Rock. THR reports Susan Sarandon has joined Dwayne Johnson for the new action-thriller Snitch. The film, which comes from stuntman turned writer and director Ric Roman Waugh (Felon, In The Shadows), is based on a 2004 episode of PBS' Frontline entitled "The Plea." The film will tell the true story of a suburban father (Johnson) who goes undercover to take down a high-level drug dealer in exchange for a reduction on his son's 30-year prison sentence. Sarandon will play an attorney working with Johnson's character who's looking for a big drug bust to further her career. Waugh rewrote a draft by Justin Haythe (the upcoming Lone Ranger, Revolutionary Road, The Clearing), who penned the film when it was set-up back at New Line Cinema with Carl Franklin (Devil in a Blue Dress, High Crimes, Out of Time) attached.

Exclusive: Gore Verbinski and Johnny Depp Talk Lone Ranger
"Hi-yo Silver! Away!" Those are the immortal words of the classic Western hero that first rode to justice on the radio and eventually on television in the '1940s and early '50s. Now the famous character is about to ride on to the big screen thanks to Rango director Gore Verbinski and his star, actor Johnny Depp. Depp is scheduled to play the Lone Ranger's faithful sidekick Tonto in the film, while Verbinski is set to direct. Justin Haythe (The Clearing) is penning the script and Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest) will produce the film.

Recently we had a chance to catch up with Gore Verbinski, and Johnny Depp while they were out promoting their new film Rango, which opens in theaters on March 4th. We took the opportunity to ask both the director, and the actor about the highly anticipated new project. We began

Me Tonto

The Lone Ranger had been originally announced back in 2007 with Jerry Bruckheimer doing the usual producer’s job on the film and possibly Gore Verbinski directing.

Disney has now announced that the project with Verbinski is moving ahead. Also announced is that Johnny Depp with play the Lone Ranger’s side kick and best friend Tonto.

Not much outside of the above information has been released except Justin Haythe (Revolutionary Road, The Clearing) has written the script. It is also unknown how close to the original origin the film will stick to which saw a group of rangers ambushed leaving one alive, brought back to health by the Native Americans.

Whatever happens I’m sure with a large part of the creative influence, Johnny Depp, Gore Verbinski, Jerry Bruckheimer and Disney having worked on the mega blockbusters of Pirates Of The Caribbean they will produce something very similar and bring in a lot of bucks.

Confirmed: Gore Verbinski To Direct 'The Lone Ranger' Starring Johnny Depp
Revealed nearly two months ago that talks had begun, Deadline confirms that Gore Verbinski has officially signed on to direct the big screen version of "The Lone Ranger" with Johnny Depp attached to play Tonto. This project has been kicking around for a while, as it has put its various pieces into place. Last we heard, Disney hired Justin Haythe, who adapted "Revolutionary Road" for Sam Mendes and wrote the Fox come-and-gone thriller, "The Clearing" and the "Jekyll" project for Keanu Reeves, to write the screenplay. So maybe it'll be a darker take on the material with more domestic strife.…
