The villain from Watchman teaming up with the director of ‘Oldboy’? If you’re not ‘Stoker’-ed, then you weep alone.
Fox Searchlight is trying to spark (light up?) the interest of a certain audience via Twitter.
Bloom has two ‘Hobbit’ movies to make, but I guess Legolas doesn’t have too big a role, because he might wedge the terrible sounding romantic comedy ‘Lola Versus’ with Greta Gerwig into his schedule.
When I saw Brit Marling’s movies in Sundance, I thought she was going to be the next big star. I’m still pulling for Molly Dunsworth, but Marling has a head start.
Fox Searchlight wants an Oscar nominated director to helm the Russ Meyer biopic. Meyer was the writer/director/producer/craft services/breast appreciator for a number of famous b-movies.
It appears that Fox Searchlight has discovered a new way to churn out remakes – start remaking documentaries.
Darren Aronofsky would like you to see his new film, Black Swan, as a companion to his previous Oscar nominated The Wrestler. Maybe they’ll show as a double feature. Black Swan is about a ballet dancer (Natalie Portman) losing her grip with reality, and The Wrestler was about a steroid monster trying to make up with his daughter.
Fox Searchlight has released the trailer for Conviction, another one of those inspirational true stories that scream "Academy Award nominations all-around!" Hilary Swank plays a "high school dropout who spent nearly two decades working as a single mother while putting herself through law school, tirelessly trying to beat the system and overturn her brother’s unjust murder conviction." I assume the brother didn't do the crime, but Sam Rockwell's playing him so you never know. Maybe we'll get one of those Primal Fear endings. Swank spends years of her life striving to free her brother, then the instant Rockwell steps out of the prison gates he screams, "I stabbed that b*tch in the eyes!" and kicks Hilary in the stomach before stealing her broken down Taurus. Yeah… That would be awesome. Conviction gets tossed into theaters October 15, 2010. Check out the Oscar bait trailer after the jump…
