4-Time “Harry Potter” Director David Yates Returning For J.K. Rowling’s ‘Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them’
According to a new report, David Yates, who directed the final four films in the ‘Harry Potter’ film series, is in talks to direct the first installment of the ‘Harry Potter’ spinoff trilogy ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.’ A production schedule for “Beasts” has yet to be worked out as Yates is currently filming the ‘Tarzan’ reboot until November, but sources reportedly confirm to Variety that the director has agreed to make the film.
The film, set for November 18th, 2016, is based on J.K. Rowling’s world of witches and wizards and inspired by Harry Potter’s Hogwarts textbook of the same name. ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ will follow the adventures of the book’s fictitious author, Newt Scamander. The first in a planned trilogy set in the wizarding world, the story will feature magical creatures and characters, some of which will be familiar to devoted Harry Potter fans. The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt’s story will start in New York, seventy years before Harry’s gets underway. ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ is set roughly seven decades before Harry Potter’s saga starts
Sony Pictures Entertainment send word that Shane Black will direct the film adaptation of the popular adventure book series ‘The Destroyer’ by Warren Murphy. Penning the screenplay are Jim Uhls (Fight Club) and James Mullaney; Mullaney co-authored and became the sole writer of ‘The Destroyer’ until the series’ end in 2008. Black is also currently attached to co-write and direct ‘Doc Savage,’ based on the hero of pulp novels, films, and comic books, for Columbia Pictures. Furthermore, he’s got a new ‘Predator’ film and the Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe-starring ‘The Nice Guys’ in the works. At this moment in time, it looks as if ‘The Nice Guys’ is up first on Black’s schedule.
Shane Black most recently wrote and directed ‘Iron Man 3,’ which became the fifth-highest grossing film of all time worldwide. He began his career in screenwriting, making his mark with ‘Lethal Weapon’ and collaborating on its sequel. Black’s directorial debut came in 2005 with his critically acclaimed ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang’ starring Robert Downey, Jr. and Val Kilmer.
This new trailer has hit the web for writer/director Gregg Araki’s (Kaboom, Mysterious Skin) ‘White Bird in a Blizzard,’ which stars Shailene Woodley, Eva Green, Christopher Meloni, Shiloh Fernandez, Gabourey Sidibe, Thomas Jane and Angela Bassett. Eyed for release on iTunes and VOD on September 25th and in theaters on October 24th, ‘White Bird in a Blizzard’ is based on the acclaimed novel by Laura Kasischke.
Set in 1988, Shailene Woodley stars as Kat, a college-bound teenager who is just discovering and relishing her newfound sexuality, when her mother (Eva Green), a beautiful, enigmatic, and haunted woman, disappears. Having lived for so long in a stifled, emotionally repressed household, Kat barely registers her mother’s absence and certainly doesn’t blame her doormat of a father, Brock (Christopher Meloni), for the loss. But as time passes, Kat begins to come to grips with how deeply Eve’s disappearance has affected her. Returning home on a break from college, she finds herself confronted with the truth about her mother’s departure, and her own denial about the events surrounding it.
