‘RoboCop’ Director Jose Padilha Boards Art Heist Movie ‘Master Thieves’

‘RoboCop’ Director Jose Padilha Boards Art Heist Movie ‘Master Thieves’
Brazilian director Jose Padilha has come on board to develop the art heist drama “Master Thieves” as a possible feature film for Sony.

Matt Tolmach and David Manpearl are producing the project, and David Beaubaire is overseeing the development for the studio.

The screenplay is by Wayne Lemon, based on the true story of the 1990 Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum heist in Boston when guards admitted two men posing as police officers. Once inside, the men tied up the guards and stole 13 pieces of art in an hour. It’s the biggest property crime in the history of the United States, with more than $500 million worth of art stolen, and it remains one of the greatest unsolved mysteries to this day. The art and culprits have never been found.

Padilha broke out for directing the Brazilian hits “Elite Squad” and “Elite Squad: The Enemy Within,” along with the 2014 remake of “RoboCop.” He won the

Interview, Audio: Gary Oldman is Winston Churchill in ‘Darkest Hour’

Chicago – Gary Oldman has been generating memorable film portrayals since he broke through in the 1980s. From Sid Vicious (“Sid and Nancy”) to Lee Harvey Oswald (“JFK”) to Jim Gordon (Dark Knight Series), Oldman is a consummate actor. That is expressed in his latest role, as Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour.”

The title refers to one of the most challenging moments of Churchill’s career. Newly minted as Britain’s prime minister in 1940, he faces the onslaught of Adolf Hitler’s attack on his homeland, including the surrounding of the British troops at Dunkirk. Gary Oldman embodies the pugnacious bulldog that characterized Churchill at the height of his power, including the soaring rhetoric that strengthened the morale of the British people.

Entebbe : first trailer for new film from Narcos director

Simon Brew Dec 8, 2017

A historical plane hijacking serves as the inspiration for Entebbe, which stars Daniel Brühl and Rosamund Pike.

Arriving in cinemas in the spring of 2018 is Entebbe, a new film from director Jose Padilha. Padilha has most recently been directing the TV show Narcos, but is also known too for the likes of the brilliant Elite Squad, and the RoboCop reboot.

Entebbe, known as 7 Days In Entebbe in the Us, heads into cinemas in March, and boasts a cast that includes Rosamund Pike, Daniel Brühl, Eddie Marsan, Ben Schnetzer, Lior Ashkenazi, and Denis Ménochet .

The plot is inspired by the 1976 hijacking of an Air France flight on the way from Tel Aviv to Paris, and tells the story of the rescue mission that followed.

The first trailer for the movie – penned by ’71 writer Gregory Burke – has now landed. And it looks like this…

‘7 Days in Entebbe’ Trailer Finds Daniel Brühl and Rosamund Pike Leading a Hijacking

Focus Features has released the first trailer for the upcoming thriller 7 Days in Entebbe. Directed by Elite Squad and RoboCop (2014) filmmaker José Padilha, the film is inspired by the true events of the 1976 hijacking of an Air France flight from Tel Aviv to Paris, which was hijacked and diverted to Entebbe, Uganda where the hijackers held the passengers hostage for one week. Daniel Brühl and Rosamund Pike lead the cast as two of the hijackers, but the film also looks to be chronicling the rescue mission planned by the Israeli government, digging into the Israel/Palestine …

Three Men And A Baby at 30

Sophie Davies Nov 27, 2017

30 years on from its release, we take a look back at Three Men And A Baby and the French film that inspired it...

In 1987, a comedy directed by Mr Spock with Magnum Pi, Sam from Cheers and the star of Police Academy was the highest grossing film at the Us box office. For context, it made almost as much money as Lethal Weapon, Predator and Robocop in that year combined. So where are all of its diehard fans?

Among the most successful films of the 1980s, Leonard Nimoy’s Three Men And A Baby stands out as a bit of an anomaly. Despite being hugely popular in its time, it seems to have faded out of the public consciousness without leaving much of a mark, and you’d be hard pushed to find someone who would name it as one of their favourite films. In fact, it

Geostorm movie review: weather bomb

MaryAnn’s quick take… Almost hilariously terrible: absurd plot machinations, dubious politics, not a single character to care about. And it doesn’t even give good disaster porn. I’m “biast” (pro): big science fiction fan

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of what Hollywood often does with sci fi

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Who was it who said, “Everybody talks about the weather, but no one does anything about it”? Well, we showed that guy! After the catastrophic weather year of 2019 (which apparently made 2017 look like a pleasantly warm and breezy day), we — that is, humanity — “fought back” against, I guess, ourselves and the climate disasters we brought upon our planet, by launching a network of weather-control satellites covering the entire globe, and operated from a newly supercool International Space Station, which has a big wheel and gravity and factories to make more satellites,

The Blob Remake Will Be More Sci-Fi Than Horror

As we continue to live in an era populated by remakes, there’s no denying that the horror genre is probably the one most often perpetuating the practice – and probably also the one we have to thank for spearheading the movement. Beyond that, there’s an exclusive club of films that have been remade more than once, with Carrie being a recent example that comes to mind and, before long, The Blob will join that ilk.

Originally spooking moviegoers back in 1958, the corrosive, growing Blob would absorb unsuspecting townsfolk before ballooning to gigantic proportions. It later received a 1972 sequel and a 1988 remake, the latter of which was probably my first exposure to the franchise because, let’s be honest, any child of the ’80s can tell you we watched many movies that we probably shouldn’t have as kids. Hell, we even had action figures for RoboCop and Terminator 2: Judgment Day,

Jared Leto plays down his on-set “method” antics on Suicide Squad

Jared Leto is well known for the extreme lengths he goes to in order to get into character, but his alleged antics during the shooting of Warner Bros.’ DC blockbuster Suicide Squad certainly raised a few eyebrows.

According to reports, Leto sent a number of bizarre “Joker-inspired” gifts to his cast mates, including live rats, a dead pig, bullets, “sticky” Playboy magazines, anal beads and even used condoms. However, it seems some of the more outlandish reports may have been wide of the mark, as Leto has downplayed the situation during an interview with Entertainment Weekly to promote his new film Blade Runner 2049.

“Most of it was total bullshit,” said Leto. “Like that I was giving used condoms to people, which was not true. It doesn’t matter how loud you shout or hold up a sign with your pants off in Times Square — people will run the story that they want.

I’ve got questions about the Cars cinematic universe

Simon Brew Jul 19, 2017

With spoilers, some questions have sprung to mind about Pixar's Cars films. Er, can you help?

The world of the Cars films has always been a bit of a puzzle for me. I don’t have a massive affection for the films, although quite enjoyed movies number one and three. The origins of this particular film world are said to lie in a road trip that John Lasseter – who directed the first two movies – took with his family. That, combined with work Pixar had already been doing on a film called The Yellow Car, set things into motion, and in 2006, the film debuted as Pixar’s fifth feature.

I don’t want to delve into the critical response to Cars. I don’t think it’s going out on too far of a limb to call it Pixar’s least-regarded boxset, but also, I get that these

Gotham’s very own maid of mischief is stepping out (of prison) with style, and every inch of her exudes attitude.

Action packed new trailer for The Hitman’s Bodyguard, starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson

Author: Scott Davis

Summit Entertainment and Millenium Films has today unveiled a brand new trailer for their anticipated action-comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard, which you can view in the player below!

The new film stars Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool, Life) and Samuel L. Jackson (Kong: Skull Island, Avengers: Infinity War) and thus far the marketing has been making a few loving pokes at the classic 1992 film The Bodyguard including utilising the poster and Whitney Houston’s famous song “I Will Always Love You” to add to the “fun” aspect of the film.

The second trailer, however, goes all out on the action front as well as a whole host of R-rated humour for which Reynolds and Jackson are dab hands at. In the film, Reynolds plays the world’s leading bodyguard and is offered a new job: guarding one of the world’s leading hitmen (Jackson) – but, as you would have expected,

Newswire: Doug Liman reveals that he left Gambit over the script

Somehow, somewhere, Fox is still developing a Gambit movie for Channing Tatum—but without Doug Liman, who was once attached to direct. Now, while promoting his new film The Wall, Liman has explained why he gave up on the X-Men spinoff to try his hand at the DC universe with Justice League Dark. “I’m all about the script, and I just wasn’t feeling it,” he said in an interview with Lrm. “I’ve got to connect to the script.“ He then went on to compare his feelings on this matter to Matt Damon’s, noting that Damon calls himself a “‘script whore.” That’s really neither here nor there, though. Ultimately, it just seems like Gambit wasn’t shaping up to be all that great.

Back in 2014, Joshua Zetumer, writer of Patriot’s Day and the RoboCop remake, was tasked with giving voice to Remy LeBeau. When ...
