Universal Pictures has unveiled five clips from ‘Non-Stop,’ which opens on February 28th. Liam Neeson leads ‘Non-Stop,’ a suspense thriller played out at 40,000 feet in the air. During a transatlantic flight from New York City to London, U.S. Air Marshal Bill Marks (Neeson) receives a series of cryptic text messages demanding that he instruct the government to transfer $150 million into an off-shore account. Until he secures the money, a passenger on his flight will be killed every 20 minutes. ‘Non-Stop,’ which reunites Neeson with ‘Unknown’ director Jaume Collet-Serra and producer Joel Silver, co-stars Golden Globe Award winner Julianne Moore, Lupita Nyong’o, Scoot McNairy, Nate Parker, Anson Mount, Michelle Dockery, and Corey Stoll.
From Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown) comes a new action thriller starring Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore and Michelle Dockery. Bill Marks (Neeson) is a burned-out veteran of the Air Marshals service. He views the assignment not as a life-saving duty, but as a desk job in the sky. However, today’s flight will be no routine trip. Shortly into the transatlantic journey from New York to London, he receives a series of mysterious text messages ordering him to have the government transfer $150 million into a secret account, or a passenger will die every 20 minutes.
During a recent chat with Digital Spy for the home release of ‘Filth’ in the UK, James McAvoy shed some light on 20th Century Fox’s upcoming ‘Frankenstein.’ Given that there’s been a number of ‘Frankenstein’ adaptations over the years, McAvoy was asked how this adaptation will stand out, “It’s about obsession and a maniacal pursuit of advancement, and it’s also about man and God and trying to replace God and whether that’s right or wrong with man trying to become the creator. It’s about the same thing, but it approaches it in a different fashion. It is not about the monster’s existential crisis and dilemma at all, but it is about the relationship between my own character Victor Frankenstein and Daniel Radcliffe’s character Igor, who doesn’t feature in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.”
With the release of the film on the horizon, Warner Bros. Pictures has set loose this batch of images from Akiva Goldsman’s ‘Winter’s Tale,’ which is based on the 1983 novel of the same name by Mark Helprin. Set in 1916 and present-day Manhattan, ‘Winter’s Tale’ follows the story of Peter Lake (Colin Farrell). Peter Lake is a thief who falls in love with Beverly Penn (Jessica Brown Findlay), a dying girl who occupies one of the houses he breaks into. The film also co-stars Russell Crowe, William Hurt, Jennifer Connelly, Matt Bomer, William Hurt, Eva Marie Saint and Will Smith, who will cameo as a judge. ‘Winter’s Tale’ opens on February 14th in the US and February 21st in the UK.
Set in a mythic New York City and spanning more than a century, “Winter’s Tale” is a story of miracles, crossed destinies, and the age-old battle between good and evil. The film stars Colin Farrell (“Total Recall”), Jessica Brown Findlay (TV’s “Downton Abbey”), and Oscar® winners Jennifer Connelly (“A Beautiful Mind”), William Hurt (“Kiss of the Spider Woman”), Eva Marie Saint (“On the Waterfront”) and Russell Crowe (“Gladiator”). “Winter’s Tale” also introduces young newcomers Ripley Sobo and Mckayla Twiggs (both from Broadway’s “Once”). The film marks the directorial debut of Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (“A Beautiful Mind”), who also wrote the screenplay, based on the acclaimed novel by Mark Helprin.
Terry Gilliam has offered up some new details about his long-awaited and continually delayed Miguel de Cervantes adaptation, ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.’ Speaking to Empire for ‘The Zero Theorem,’ Gilliam revealed that production on ‘Don Quixote’ will potentially kick off on September 29th on the Canary Islands. Gilliam now has Spanish producer Adrián Guerra, veteran of ‘Buried,’ ’Red Lights’ and Elijah Wood’s ‘Grand Piano.’ “He’s really smart, loves movies,” explains the director. “He’s young enough to still love movies. But we’ve still got to cast it and get the money but other than that, that’s the deal.”
So how many Quixote casts has this film had now? “I’m hoping it’s the lucky 11,” he laughs. “We keep rewriting the script each time, too, so it’s a slightly different film each time. It’s the same film but the details change. Maybe it’s better, it’s certainly slightly smaller to fit into the new clothing we wear,” he said, adding wryly, “Which are cheap clothes these days.”
The Hollywood Reporter have caught wind that Anne Hathaway is in talks to join ‘The Intern,’ a workplace comedy to be directed by Nancy Meyers. Robert De Niro is also starring in the project , which tells of an owner of an Internet company (Hathaway) who gets assigned an intern who’s a retiree (De Niro). He becomes a valuable resource and the two develop a relationship. Both Reese Witherspoon and Tina Fey were previously attached to the comedy. Hathaway will next be seen in Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’ and is coming off the Sundance premiere of the drama ‘Song One.’ To be produced by Scott Rudin, ‘The Intern’ is planned to go into production shortly.
Deadline are reporting that after spending several years looking to generate a sequel or two to the 1996 Fox blockbuster ‘Independence Day,’ it looks like director Roland Emmerich and co-writer and producer Dean Devlin are going to have to take on those earth-leveling aliens without Will Smith. The outlet are told that Smith informed the studio that he won’t be joining in on a sequel that the filmmakers hope to have on the big screen from July 1st, 2016. That marks the 20th anniversary of the 1996 original that grossed $811 million worldwide and launched Smith on a trajectory to become the world’s most bankable movie star.
This doesn’t mean that the ’Independence Day’ sequel can’t happen. Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin wrote two different versions of the movie – one with Will Smith and one without him. One has Smith as the centerpiece, and the other takes the battle to the aliens without his cocky hero fighter pilot Captain Steven Hiller. Deadline don’t believe that Smith has had the final conversation yet with Emmerich, but that will likely happen shortly. They add that Smith has been back and forth before on whether to make the movie, though I hear he is pretty much decided.
