Oliver Stone Accused of Sexual Harassment After Defending Harvey Weinstein
Oliver Stone has been accused of sexual harassment by actress and model Carrie Stevens. Stevens revealed in a Twitter post that Stone groped her while walking out of a party, and the revelation was a response to Stone’s own comments defending Harvey Weinstein against many sexual harassment allegations.

When I heard about Harvey, I recalled Oliver walking past me & grabbing my boob as he walked out the front door of a party. Two of a kind!

Carrie Stevens (@CarrieStevensXO) October 13, 2017

Stone was asked to weigh in on the Weinstein scandal during a panel at the Busan International Film Festival in South Korea, to which he responded: “I believe a man shouldn’t be condemned by a vigilante system. It’s not easy what he’s going through, either.” He continued by saying the right thing to do would be to “wait and see” whether or not the many accusations

Author Don Winslow Explains The Wild, Dangerous Moviegoing Experience Of 1970s New York City

  • The Playlist
While there is a certain nostalgia for the grittier era of 1970s New York City, particularly when contrasted with the increasing gentrification of the city, it’s worth remembering it was hardly a paradise. Crime was rampant, the city could be incredibly dangerous, and not even the sanctity of the cinema could keep you safe.

Author Don Winslow (“The Force,” “Savages“) knows this quite well, and in an interview with The Village Voice he shared what he witnessed working in movie theaters at the time, and it goes far beyond talking and texting during the film:

Exclusive Interview: Aaron Taylor-Johnson Talks The Wall

Coming off a career best performance as serial killer Ray Marcus in Nocturnal Animals, The Wall actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson has cemented himself as one of the industry’s top young talents.

No stranger to comic book films, the actor rose to stardom playing the titular hero Dave Lizewski in the Kick-Ass films.

In The Wall, Taylor-Johnson stars as Isaac alongside WWE superstar and recent comedy film standout John Cena as two soldiers in a deadly encounter with an Iraqi sniper. Trapped behind a crumbling stone wall, Isaac must battle wits and marksmanship in a deadly cat and mouse game of survival.

Gears Of War Adaptation Locks Down Avatar Writer

  • LRM Online
There’s been talk of a Gears of War film almost since the time the first game hit the original Xbox back in the mid-2000s. And it makes sense. The game has a very cinematic style, and its hard-action, testosterone-fueled leads very much lends itself to the medium. Of course, like almost every other video game franchise under the sun, there have been some…delays in the development process.

For whatever reason, an actual Gears of War film has had a hard time getting off the ground. Scripts were written, scripts were rewritten, budgets were raised an scaled back, and every so often we get news of them taking another crack at the franchise. It’s all very much par for the course for most video game adaptations.

Gears Of War Movie Picks Up Steam After Recruiting Avatar Scribe

Video games are fun. Movies are fun. But when the two combine to produce a live-action feature film – or, by the same token, a tie-in video game in the vein of The Chronicles Of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay – the results often range from disastrous to flat-out disappointment.

2016 was no exception, either, after the back-to-back flops of Assassin’s Creed and Duncan Jones’ budding franchise-starter, Warcraft: The Beginning. There have been rumblings of potential sequels for both blockbusters, but without any tangible development in almost six months, the thought of revisiting the Animus – and indeed the mystical realm of Azeroth – is about to be chalked up as wishful thinking.

But if Hollywood executives have been deterred by those box office bombs, it doesn’t show; The Division and the Alicia Vikander-fronted Tomb Raider are just two examples of high-profile video game movies incubating in development, and Deadline brings

Gears of War Movie Brings in Avatar Sequel Writer

  • MovieWeb
Now that the long-awaited Gears of War movie found a studio home at Universal last October, the project is finally starting to come together. Universal has brought on screenwriter Shane Salerno, who co-wrote all four upcoming Avatar sequels with James Cameron, to work on on the screenplay. Dylan Clark will produce through his Universal-based production company, although no director is set in stone quite yet.

When Universal announced their partnership with The Coalition, the Microsoft-based company that develops the video game franchise, it was revealed that the movie wouldn't be based on a specific game in the Gears of War franchise, but an original story set in this established universe. Deadline broke the news of Shane Salerno coming aboard to write the script, but no story details have been given as of yet. This popular video game franchise has had a long road to the big screen, but now

‘Gears of War’ Movie Gains Momentum With ‘Avatar’ Writer Shane Salerno

‘Gears of War’ Movie Gains Momentum With ‘Avatar’ Writer Shane Salerno
Universal’s “Gears of War” movie has picked up momentum as the studio has tapped high-profile writer Shane Salerno to write the screenplay.

The move comes seven months after Universal Pictures optioned motion picture rights to Microsoft Studio’s “Gears of War” franchise, based on the Xbox video game series. Dylan Clark (“Planet of the Apes”) is producing.

Salerno’s writing credits include the four sequels to “Avatar” for director James Cameron, which begins shooting in August. Salerno is also writing and producing Fox’s drug drama “The Cartel” for Ridley Scott with filming in January. His other credits include “Armageddon” and Oliver Stone’s “Savages.”

“Gears of War” has generated more than $1 billion in sales with over 45 million players worldwide. Microsoft acquired the “Gears of War” series in 2014 when co-creator Rob Fergusson came on board to lead the Coalition, the Microsoft development studio focused exclusively on “Gears of War.

Oliver Stone’s ‘The Putin Interviews’: Why the Showtime Series Could Help the Legendary Filmmaker Get His Mojo Back
Oliver Stone and Vladimir Putin are a match made in heaven. Stone’s upcoming documentary series “The Putin Interviews” could be just the project to give the filmmaker’s career the shot in the arm in desperately needs. The director of iconic films like “Platoon” and “JFK” has never wavered from tackling challenging political stories, both documentaries and narrative features, but the results as of late have been lackluster.

“The Putin Interviews,” a four-night series airing on Showtime this June, could change all that. While Stone has always been an outspoken critic of governments around the world, the recent rise of issues like surveillance, hacking and cyberwarfare have made him even more energized, and concerned, about current events.

“What’s going on right now is pretty shocking,” Stone said at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival.

Oliver Stone Interviews Vladimir Putin, Uncensored, in Showtime’s New Documentary Series ‘The Putin Interviews’

Oliver Stone Interviews Vladimir Putin, Uncensored, in Showtime’s New Documentary Series ‘The Putin Interviews’
Oliver Stone has interviewed Russian president Vladimir Putin more than a dozen times over the past two years. Now, Stone and his documentary producer Fernando Sulichin have turned those chats into “The Putin Interviews,” a four-hour documentary series airing over four nights this June on Showtime.

Check out a first look at “The Putin Interviews” below. Stone most recently interviewed Putin in February, after the U.S. presidential elections (in which Putin and Russia are believed to have actively influenced). Showtime compares “The Putin Interviews” to David Frost’s famed conversations with Richard Nixon in 1977.

Stone and Sulichin were granted wide access to Putin’s personal and professional lives. “It’s not a documentary as much as a question and answer session,” Stone told the Sydney Morning Herald. “”It opens up a whole viewpoint that we as Americans haven’t heard… He talks pretty straight.

Logan Director James Mangold Finds His Next Project In The Force

Given how successful Logan has turned out to be, both at the box office and with critics, one would assume that director James Mangold has his pick of projects when it comes to what he’ll do next. And while he has expressed interest in possibly making an X-23 film at some point down the road, it seems like he’ll be taking a break from the world of mutants for a while to bring us an adaptation of Don Winslow’s upcoming novel, The Force.

20the Century Fox acquired the rights last year and Mangold will help them develop the project in addition to getting behind the camera to direct. No writer has been chosen yet to bring the story to life on the big screen, but whoever the studio drafts in will be working closely alongside the Logan helmer to deliver what sounds like a very exciting movie.
