Filming Begins On ‘Terminator: Genesis’ – Starring Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Arnold Schwarzenegger….
Skydance Productions have just revealed on their Facebook page that filming has commenced on ‘Terminator: Genesis,’ the reboot of the beloved sci-fi franchise. Skydance posted the following message with the above image:
::SKYNET preparation routines complete.
::Initialization sequence complete.
::Reboot initiating in 03m00s.
The first in a new trilogy, ‘Terminator: Genesis’ stars Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke as John Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, Dayo Okeniyi, Byung-hun Lee, Michael Gladis, Sandrine Holt, and J.K. Simmons. Alan Taylor, who worked with Emilia Clarke in the HBO series ‘Game Of Thrones,’ is directing the film. The latest ‘Terminator’ will be the fifth installment of the storied movie series. Arnold Schwarzenegger starred in all but the last one, 2009’s ‘Terminator Salvation.’ Taylor cut his teeth directing big-budget HBO shows such as ’Game of Thrones’ and ’The Sopranos’ before making his movie debut with Marvel’s ’Thor: The Dark World.’ ‘Terminator: Genesis’ has a July 1st, 2015 release date.
From The Weinstein Company comes this extended TV spot for ‘The Giver,’ the adaptation of the Lois Lowry novel from director Phil Noyce. While there’s been a plethora of movies involving dystopian young adult novel storylines, ‘The Giver’ was ahead of its time, winning the Newbery medal in 1994. Starring Jeff Bridges, Brenton Thwaites, Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, Alexander Skarsgard, Odeya Rush and Taylor Swift, the film lands in cinemas on August 15th.
Jeff Bridges has been trying to make Lois Lowry’s 1993 classic ‘The Giver’ into a film for nearly 20 years. In that time, his kids became adults, his father Lloyd, who he’d wanted to play the Giver, died, and he got rejection after rejection from everybody in town until Harvey Weinstein came along. Jeff Bridges has took on the role of the Giver and is serving as a producer on the film.
Bloody hell, that was quick! Almost exactly a week ago it was reported that David Fincher has exited the untitled Steve Jobs film based on Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography. Now it is being reported that Sony Pictures is in talks with Danny Boyle to direct the biopic of the late Apple Computer co-founder. Additionally, Boyle is said to have approached his ‘The Beach’ star Leonardo DiCaprio to play Jobs. Sources caution that deals are not done, and it’s worth noting that DiCaprio has committed to star in Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu’s thriller ‘The Revenant starting in September. Fincher had wanted Christian Bale for the title role, though the actor was not signed.
After a long hiatus due to the tragic death of star Paul Walker, ‘Fast & Furious 7′ commenced shooting again earlier this month, giving Universal Pictures and director James Wan ample time to meet its rescheduled April 10th, 2015 release date. Last week the studio announced that Walker’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, are assisting in finishing the film. Today, Vin Diesel took to his hugely populated Facebook page to share an image of the sibling pair on the set. Diesel added the following message with the image:
When I heard the news, I left the production, grabbed a plane and took my family and Michelle back to LA… drove directly to his parent’s house…
Just last Friday it was reported that Steven Spielberg is set to produce and potentially direct the religious drama ‘The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara.’ Today THR bring word that Tom Hanks has become attached to a project that is another Spielberg contender, as the Oscar winner is attached to star in an untitled Cold War project written by Matt Charman and produced by Marc Platt.
If Steven Spielberg does indeed direct this, it would mark the fourth feature film partnership between the director and Tom Hanks. The two previously collaborated on ‘Saving Private Ryan,’ ‘The Terminal’ and ‘Catch Me If You Can.’ They also acted as producers on such projects as the acclaimed HBO miniseries ‘Band of Brothers.’ This particular movie tells the true story of James Donovan, an attorney who was put into the center of the Cold War when he negotiated the release of downed U-2 spy plane pilot Gary Powers.
