Catherine Hardwicke: Tiff/YouTube

Catherine Hardwicke has found her next gig. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the “Twilight” director will helm Sony’s remake of “Miss Bala,” a 2011 Mexican drama from Gerardo Naranjo.

The original film sees protagonist Laura (Stephanie Sigman) enter the Miss Baja beauty pageant. “During rehearsals, she witnesses a gang killing DEA agents and nightclub-goers and is then kidnapped by the gang and forced to work for them in the deadly drug war,” THR summarizes. “Miss Bala” premiered at Cannes in the Un Certain Regard competition and was Mexico’s submission for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars.

The remake will center on Gloria Meyer, “who finds herself a pawn, after her friend Suzu goes missing in Tijuana, in a dangerous game being played by the CIA, the DEA and a charismatic young crime boss,” the source details. Deadline reports that “Jane the Virgin” star Gina Rodriguez is one of the actresses being pursued to play Gloria.

Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer will pen the script, while Kevin Misher (Kimberly Peirce’s “Carrie”) and Pablo Cruz (the original “Miss Bala”) will produce. Andy Berman (“Rosewood”) will exec produce.

“The truth is, most of those female stories that are contending for Oscars are directed by men. Let’s be honest,” Hardwicke has said about the films that generate awards buzz. “All the ones that were getting an Oscar pitch with the money and everything behind them were by men.”

Hardwicke’s “Twilight” earned $383 million worldwide on a budget of $37 million. It still holds the record of the highest opening weekend for a female director. “Miss You Already,” “Red Riding Hood,” and “Thirteen” are among her other films. Hardwicke is attached to direct the big screen adaptation of Ya novel “Stargirl” toplined by Joey King (“Fargo”).

Check Out The New Promo & Stills For Sleepy Hollow Season 4, Episode 8: "Sick Burn"

Sleepy Hollow had kind of a throwback episode last night as they put a wicked twist on the Red Riding Hood story, putting Molly in immediate danger. Luckily, the team of Ichabod, Diana, & Jenny were able to persevere and put an end to the big bad wolf.  Next week's episode has the team dealing with a supernatural infection that originates from a viral video, of all places, and they quickly find themselves in a race against the clock to discover a cure before the whole town goes down. Elsewhere, Molly has another ominous vision that doesn't paint a pretty picture for the future of humanity. Check out the promo for episode eight, titled "Sick Burn," below: A Curse Goes Viral On An All-new "Sleepy Hollow" Friday, February 24, On Fox When internet sensation Logan Macdonald comes to town, a supernatural infection hits, via a viral video.

Sleepy Hollow: Malcolm is Alive. Molly Channels Inner Red Riding Hood.

To paraphrase Ichabod’s words to Jenny: Evil tend to flare up just when you think it’s existence is no more. This sums up every single episode of Sleepy Hollow thus far. Doesn’t matter how many evil creatures Team Witness defeats, more will pop up in their place. In tonight’s episode, things take an interesting turn as the show takes a page out of the Grimms brother’s book. Ichabod’s fascination with modern-day toys in this episode amuses me greatly. The toys of today certainly put the toys of the past to shame. We have robots that transform, dolls that speak and cars that you

Split Review

Like the varying voices who shape James McAvoy’s performance(s) in Split, my mind is filled with conflicting opinions about M. Night Shyamalan’s latest thriller. McAvoy’s numerous appearances make for a transfixing theatrical experience, while devotion to parbaked themes and collegiate merit make for a jumbled, messy commentary on trauma. Shyamalan plays towards empowering the victim, but loses control of sci-fi terror in doing so. Anya Taylor-Joy proves to be the new genre “It” girl, there’s strength in numbers and we certainly need to talk about Kevin (McAvoy’s true character) – so why the feelings of indifference?

Kevin Wendell Crumb (McAvoy) suffers from a severe case of multiple personalities, twenty-three of whom reside inside his singular body. It’s one of these inhabitants who decides to kidnap three teenage girls with ceremonial intent. Casey (Taylor-Joy), Claire (Haley Lu Richardson) and Marcia (Jessica Sula) are in the

Den Of Geek’s Christmas 2016 UK TV and radio picks

Louisa Mellor Dec 12, 2016

We’ve taken a pen to the UK Christmas TV and radio schedules and circled the shows we’re looking forward to. Add yours below!

Amid the cosy repeats, big movies and inescapable cranberry-stuffed cookery shows on TV this month are a few original gems. Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton’s Inside No. 9 festive special The Devil Of Christmas (Tuesday the 27th of December, 10pm, BBC Two) is top of our must-watch list. Hot on its heels is Yonderland’s family friendly Yonder Yuletide (Saturday the 24th of December, 6.30pm, Sky One). Another for families on Sky is the Christmas Day Jasper Fforde adaptation The Last Dragonslayer, while Channel 4 has the non-festive-but-essential-for-fans-of smart-sci-fi Humans series two finale (Sunday the 18th of December, 9pm).

Could A Female Finally Be Nominated For Best Cinematography This Year?

Mandy Walker (Courtesy: ‘The Hollywood Reporter’)

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

It seems that the conversation around making the Oscars more inclusive and diverse is an endless conversation. Perhaps one of the statistics that oftentimes goes unnoticed is the Academy’s vast underrepresentation of female cinematographers in the best cinematography category — which has been around since the inception of the awards show.

This year we might just have a breakthrough with Mandy Walker and her work on the Theodore Melfi-directed Hidden Figures — which stars three black actresses in the main roles: Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe. General audiences won’t see the film until January 13, 2017, but critics are starting to see it this Friday.

In the history of the Oscars — all 88 ceremonies that are in the books so far — no women have won for best cinematography, mostly because none have ever been nominated in the category.
