The post Stephen King’s ‘The Stand’ Adaptation Just Got Alright, Alright, Alright… appeared first on Screen Junkies.

By Jared Jones

Last week, Stephen King fans around the world uttered a collective cheer when it was announced that The Stand would finally receive the feature-length treatment it deserved, then doubled over in agony when they learned that said adaptation would actually be broken up into 4 feature-length films. With the success of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay and The Hobbit trilogy carving a new way for movie studios to soullessly milk us for every penny we’re worth, needlessly broken up film adaptations are hotter than Hansel right now, artistic integrity be damned, and The Stand will be no different.

But as they say, every cloud has a silver lining, and it looks like The Stand’s silver lining will come in the form of smooth-talking Texan who drove Lincoln SUV’s before he was ever paid to. The Guardian is reporting that Matthew McConaughey has been pegged for the role of Randall Flagg, the story’s lead antagonist, in the four-film version of The Stand which will be directed by The Fault in Our Stars’s Josh Boone.

The role of Flagg would really serve as a tip in the cap of McConaughey, who as you well know is having the best 2014 of any human being on this planet or any other (#InterstellarPuns). In addition to winning an Academy Award for his portrayal of Ron Woodruff in Dallas Buyers Club, McConaughey has received heaps of praise for his standout roles in Mud, True Detective, and most recently, Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.

On Kevin Smith’s “Babble On” podcast, The Stand writer/director Boone went into further detail about his original plans for the film, which he describes as “the Godfather of post-apocalyptic thrillers”, and how it came to be the multi-part epic that Warner Bros. is backing.

I really wanted to do an A-list actor, really grounded, credible version of the movie. I sold them on that and they hired me…I sold them on a single, three hour movie. I went and got [Stephen] King sold on it, everybody’s really excited…I told the story non-linear and that was the way I was able to compress that book and get everything into that script. You open with Mother Abigail dying and sending the guys off, and then you jump back in time… So what happened is the script gets finished, I write it in like five months, everybody loves it, King loves it, $87 million is what it was budgeted at, really expensive for a horror drama that doesn’t have set pieces.

They came back and said “would you do it as multiple films?” and I said “fuck yes!” I loved my script, and I was willing to drop it in an instant because you’re able to do an even truer version that way. So I think we are going to do like four movies. I can’t tell you anything about how we’re going to do them, or what’s going to be in which movie. I’ll just say we are going to do four movies, and we’re going to do THE STAND at the highest level you can do it at, with a cast that’s going to blow people’s minds. We’ve already been talking to lots of people, and have people on board in certain roles that people don’t know about.

According to Boone, production for the first installment of The Stand will begin next year, “hopefully in the spring.”

You may be avoiding footage of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar (starring Matthew McConaughey) so that you can walk into the theater on November 7th and have a fresh experience. With sensitivity to that, we’ll avoid posting any spoilers — although we’ve put the emotional final trailer above to satisfy you curious types out there. For everybody else, feel free to tide yourself over by watching this scene from RocketMan starring Harland Williams.

Essentially the same movie, more or less.

Brad Pitt, in addition to being a personal lubricant for any woman over the age of 20, is one of the generation’s most respected actors, having logged decades worth of Oscar-quality films.

But as with many actors of his caliber, his start was less auspicious — there are a bunch of late-’80s and ’90s stinkers with his young, beautiful mug in them. Some actors get lucky right out the gate (see: Jennifer Lawrence), but most actors that anyone cares about had to slog through bit parts in horrible movies to make a name.

In a cutthroat industry like Hollywood, we shouldn’t chastise them. Hell, we all gotta make rent. But that doesn’t make it any less schadenfreudelicious to look back on some of the awful early roles of actors who can now buy and sell us several times over.

Jennifer AnistonLeprechaun (1993) No one will pretend for a second that Jennifer Aniston has any cred as a “meaningful actress” — I’m guessing her shot at Oscar glory is as unlikely as her chances at a meaningful long-term relationship. But one year before she became Rachel Greene, she starred with Willow in horror comedy Leprechaun. This series is still cranking out sequels and prequels; no telling if she’s gonna add to her rumored $11o million net worth by reprising her role.

Leonardo DiCaprio – Critters 3 (1991) The funniest thing about this role is the fact that Leonardo DiCaprio pretty much looks like the same 17-year-old punk 23 years later. Still, it’s funny to see Martin Scorsese‘s go-to actor competing with a bunch of nasty Furbies with sharp teeth in the second sequel to an 80s B-movie franchise. Unfortunately, Leo makes it through the film without getting his punchable face chewed through.

Steve Carell – Curly Sue (1991) Steve Carell is the most aiiight comedian on the face of the earth, so I’m not sure if anyone missed much from his quick, nobody role as a waiter in this charming early-1990s vehicle for the surviving Belushi brother.

Damon WayansBeverly Hills Cop (1984) The funniest Wayans brother (by far) offers Eddie Murphy his bananas in a pretty funny bit role that served as something of a predecessor to his Men on Film bit on In Living Color. 

Matthew McConaughey and Renee Zellweger – Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (1994) This movie is indescribably bad, and features a pre-”awright, awright, awright” McConaughey basically being an evil redneck to Zellweger’s obnoxious, interminably screaming minx. Don’t watch this. Consider yourself warned.

Continue to the next page for the very humble beginnings of Jim Carrey, Adam Sandler, Angelina Jolie, and more…

We’ve Got The Trailer For Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’ Starring Matthew McConaughey http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/weve-got-the-trailer-for-christopher-nolans-interstellar-starry-matthew-mcconaughey/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/weve-got-the-trailer-for-christopher-nolans-interstellar-starry-matthew-mcconaughey/#comments Thu, 31 Jul 2014 15:56:58 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=263592 It's not a Christopher Nolan film if you understand what's going on.

Christopher Nolan’s next outing will likely be just as high-profile as his most recent ones. Interstellar, a space thriller that will supposedly screw with heads the same way Inception did, has a typically all-star cast including Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, and Jessica Chastain.

The film will focus on a weary old pilot who is called back into duty for a trip to space. From there, things get predictably hairy, though it’s not exactly clear how.

Christopher Nolan is pretty overt about “borrowing” from Kubrick in the film, which is also no surprise. It would be bigger news if a director didn’t borrow from Kubrick in a space film.

Interstellar, as the trailer states, hits theaters in November.

Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson have teamed up, surprisingly not to raise hemp awareness (it’s a versatile material!), but instead to have a drawl-off in the upcoming HBO series True Detective. They star as two detectives — Harrelson is the family man and McConaughey is the tortured one who sleeps naked and leans back in chairs — tracking a serial killer across Louisiana over the span of seventeen years.

I don’t want to spoil the series for those who haven’t read the book, but prepared to be disappointed to find out the killer is actually a really methodical alligator.

McConaughey may not be making waves by popping up in huge tentpole blockbusters these days, but his last half-dozen roles or so in films like Mud, Magic Mike, and Killer Joe have restored a lot of the credibility that was eroded during his dark, troubling rom-com phase.

It seems the streak has no sign of ending, as he’s signed up for another heavy one with Dallas Buyers Club, in which he plays an AIDS patient given a month to live. Understandably, his character goes on a mission to find the then-new drug AZT.

Keep it, Matt. You’re raging against the stupid summer movie machine.

In news that is sure to bum out Marion Cotillard, Anne Hathaway is said to be in talks to once again join Christopher Nolan for his next film. If the deal firms up, she’ll star alongside Matthew McConaughey in Interstellar, a project that deals with theories of wormholes and time travel based on theories developed by theoretical physicist Kip Thorne.

Beyond that, the film’s details are top secret so let’s all assume that this is a big screen adaptation of the Jerry O’Connell science fiction series, Sliders. If this reality makes any sense, Michael Caine will soon join in the role of Prof. Maxmillian Arturo originally made famous by John Rhys-Davies. (THR)

When Christopher Nolan offers you a part, you’d be a fool to say no. And so, Matthew McConaughey has followed in the footsteps of Tom Berenger, Matthew Modine, and Anthony Michael Hall before him and said yes to an offer from the acclaimed director of movies that seem really good at first but later seem overblown and confusing. And so, McConaughey has confirmed he will join Nolan’s next scifi adventure, Interstellar. Thus, we can confirm that we will have fun with this one when it comes time for the Honest Trailer version.

Not much is known about Interstellar except that Nolan will direct from his brother Jonathan’s script which is said to deal with “time travel and alternate dimensions and sees a group of explorers travel through a wormhole.”

Seriously. The Honest Trailer for this is going to be so good. (Star Tribune)

After a few big budget efforts that didn’t pan out, Jack Black is going back to basics. In Bernie, he re-teams with School of Rock director Richard Linklater to tell the true story of a pleasant, clean-cut man who befriends and then murders an elderly Texas millionaire.

Shirley MacLaine plays the despised widow with whom Black’s mortician strikes up the unlikely friendship. The strongest performance in this trailer, however, goes to Dazed and Confused alum Matthew McConaughey. I watched until close to the end before realizing his character wasn’t being played by Gary Cole. And I’m still not totally convinced.

Also, Jack Black should totally play a live-action version of The Simpsons Yes Guy.

This story doesn’t need any snark, nor any particular insight. It stands on its own merit.

In a new music video, Matthew McConaughey has reprised his legendary Dazed and Confused character Wooderson, the man who keeps getting older even though high school girls stay the same age, and who thinks it would be a lot cooler if you had a joint on ya.

The appearance comes in Butch Walker and the Black Widows’ video for “Synthesizers,” a song that sounds just like “Come On Eileen,” but updated for 2012. The song is so-so, but seeing Wooderson again is a flat-out revelation. He’s rocking the same look, and 18 years later, Matthew McConaughey doesn’t look as though he’s changed a bit.

His advice for looking so young?

Just keep livin’, man. L-I-V-I-N.

The post These 6 Movie Characters Will Steal Your Girlfriend appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Living in LA, you learn to keep your guard up if your girlfriend or date takes up with an actor. There are rules. First of all, don’t let your girlfriend talk to famous people that are richer and better-looking than you are. However, remember you live in LA, where almost everyone is some combination of more famous/richer/better looking than you. Then move to rule two. Rule two is: Insert yourself into their conversation so that the actor in question knows that you’re her boyfriend and your girlfriend knows that you’re on to her game. It sure as hell won’t change anything, but when they leave together, you’ll sleep easie knowing that you did everything you could.

Well, that’s the real world. Now imagine going up against fictional characters. They’re shrewder and better-looking than real people. You might as well start sobbing now. And keep your girlfriend the hell away from these guys.

6. Aldous Snow – Forgetting Sarah Marshall/Get Him to the Greek

Mr. Snow (Russell Brand) may be the biggest jackass on this list (and this list is rife with jackasses), but he has a very endearing, naïve quality that allows him to steal any woman he wants. He’s pretty much two-for-two, having stolen the titular Sarah Marshall from Jason Segel’s Peter Bretter and banged Jonah Hill’s gf in a bizarre threesome in Get Him to the Greek. If your girlfriend has a pulse and 51% of her limbs, then she’s fair game for Snow.

5. Glenn Guglia – The Wedding Singer

While we don’t see anyone lose their girlfriend to Julia’s fiancé in The Wedding Singer, it’s a foregone conclusion that he will throw back some Alabama Slammers and have his way with her. He’s also the least likely on this list to take “no” for an answer.

I think we all wish that he has taken Robbie’s (Adam Sandler) advice midway through the film and had a few drinks, then driven home.

4. Wooderson – Dazed and Confused

It’s nothing personal. It’s the Wooderson (Matthew McConaughey) way. If (when) Wooderson went after m high school girlfriend, I don’t even think I’d be mad. I’d be all, “That’s our Wooderson! It’s what he does! Psssh! Scoundrel!”

Frankly, if you take issue with your lady sleeping with a mustachioed, toe-headed Matthew McConaughey, just keep her the hell away from him and his moon tower keggers. It’s not like he’s playing his hand close to the vest.

It boils down to this: If Wooderson gets close enough to your girl to bang her, it’s your own damn fault. Seriously. It’s f*ckin’ Wooderson.

It’s hard to believe that it’s taken this long for Matthew McConaughey to be cast as a strip club owner, but the long wait is finally over. In Steven Soderbergh‘s upcoming male-stripper study Magic Mike, McConaughey will play the proprietor of the strip club in which Channing Tatum does his little catwalk on the runway as the titular character.

So we’ve got McConaughey running the club, Channing Tatum dancing in it, then we’ve got scrappy upstart Alex Pettyfer being taken under Tatum’s wing. Is there really so much to learn about male stripping that you need to be taken under someone’s wing? Just do some sit-ups, cover yourself in oil, then act like an asshole. That’s it. Three things.

This film continues McConaughey’s indie streak to five consecutive films, which I guess is a little impressive in its own right, but mostly it just makes me happy because it means he isn’t in romantic comedies with J. Lo and or Sandra Bullock. (Variety)

What are they odds that Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon can get together and star in a film that is an actual drama? The film title is Mud. Really. It’s not like This Love Has Taken Its Toll or …Forever Hold Your Peace. The project is being written and directed by Jeff Nichols.

McConaughey will play a fugitive named Mud who befriends a weird 14 year-old kid (Tye Sheridan) that is hell-bent on seeing Mud escape the law, while Witherspoon will play Mud’s love, with whom he is desperate to reunite. Variety is reporting the film to be a “coming-of-age drama” in the style of Stand by Me. Although it’s not specified, I think the combo of these two and the fugitive storyline lead me to believe that this film just might take place in the South. Spitballin’ here.

McConaughey is on a bit of an indie tear as of late, having wrapped on Bernie and Killer Joe and currently filming The Paperboy. Witherspoon is still doing a whole mess of mainstream studio stuff, but, hey, that’s okay too.

As today’s casting news indicates, Pedro Almodovar can reel in the A-list even as a lowly producer. Matthew McConaughey, Tobey Maguire, Zac Efron, and Sophia Vergara have all enlisted for The Paperboy, an adaptation of a 1995 novel that follows a Miami reporter who investigates the incarceration of a death row inmate. Lee Daniels will be pulling director duty on this one.

Alomodovar’s capacity as only producer is somewhat surprising, given that he has worked with The Paperboy author Pet Dexter developing this project over the past decade. However, the project seems to be left in capable hands with Daniels, who has Precious and the upcoming Selma to his name.

The roles corresponding to the A-list actors have not been disclosed, but I think that McConaughey would make a good journalist, Tobey Maguire is a very convincing sex offender, Zac Efron would make a remarkable murder victim, and Sophia Vergara could be either a sultry Latina stripper or a down-on-her-luck, nude adult film actress.

In case it’s not clear, I’m not terribly familiar with the source material. (THR)

Matthew McConaughey will be playing a Texan. Remember this day, as this only happens in like 63% of the movies in which he is cast. He will star in The Dallas Buyers Club, a film that centers around a man who smuggles in AIDS medicine into the US from Mexico to help himself and other AIDS sufferers in Dallas, Texas. In case you were wondering, AIDS medicine is the most depressing thing that this title could refer to. The film has been picked up by Content Film and will finally see a production after languishing without distribution.

Joining McConaughey in his struggle will be Hilary Swank. Though her capacity in the film is not divulged, I wouldn’t put “wife” outside the realm of possibility.

The film is based on the true story of Ron Woodruff, a Texas electrician diagnosed with AIDS in 1986 and given six months to live. Woodruff managed to hang on for another six years by smuggling in unapproved medicine from Mexico, first for himself, then for others, hence the movie’s title.

The film, directed by Jean-Marc Vallee, has caught the eye of numerous actors and directors over the years, but it wasn’t able to find its way to production. Well, wait no longer, audiences! Actually, you’ll need to wait a year longer. Sorry to get your hopes up. (Deadline)

High school girls, be advised. Matthew McConaughey has AIDs… in his next movie.

McConaughey has joined the long-troubled production of The Dallas Buyers Club. McConaughey is the latest to be attached as the project has been buzzed by several stars and directors including Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt, and director Marc Forster.

Jean Marc Gallee is the latest on directing duties with the good intentions of getting this film off the ground. McConaughey will play the protagonist, an AIDs infected electrician who prolongs his six-month death sentence to six years by smuggling illegal medicines into the country to treat himself and other sufferers of the disease.

“It’s not the sort of movie studios are throwing money at these days,” McConaughey tells the LA Times, but he’s confident that it’s “a great script and a great story, and I think it can be a great movie.”

Agreed. We’ll have to see where this one ends up (if at all). I have a feeling it depends strongly on whether or not Kate Hudson will be allowed to play a  magazine reporter who cures McConaughey with the healing power of wearing cute dresses.

Review: The Lincoln Lawyer http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-the-lincoln-lawyer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-the-lincoln-lawyer/#comments Tue, 08 Mar 2011 20:08:48 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=102974 A perfectly average legal drama.

The post Review: The Lincoln Lawyer appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>

The Lincoln Lawyer is a perfectly average legal drama. I trust that the book is exactly like this, totally programmed to hit standard beats in the plot. It’ll serve its purpose in theaters just like a paperback novel does.

Michael Haller (Matthew McConaughey) is a lawyer working out of his car, a Lincoln Continental. He’s so slick and smooth talking, he gets a judge to give him an extension while he waits for a client to extend his retainer. Then he goads the client for money for an expert witness, when he really already has the witness in hand.

You learn just enough about Haller to like him, which is the standard cliché. He takes care of his chauffeur, keeping him employed even after he got his own driver’s license back. He has a daughter with prosecutor Maggie (Marisa Tomei), and the only reason they broke up is because they’re on different sides of the court.

The real case is Louis Roulet (Ryan Phillipe), a rich boy accused of beating lady of the night Reggie Campo (Margarita Levieva). Louis is hard to like because he’s so privileged and frequently uses an ignorant epithet for gays. Of course, the case isn’t simply he said/she said so Haller’s values are tested.

The point of the movie is to take Haller from a guy so smooth he doesn’t even need an office to a haggard, disheveled wreck. In the beginning, he manipulates the media and the D.A. but Louis really turns the tables on Haller. If you want to see McConaughey sweat, this is the movie for you.

Haller still does a good job for Louis. He baits prosecutor Ted Minton (Josh Lucas) into revealing an attack on Louis’ mother, so the jury ends up sympathizing. We knew about the attack but how it comes up in trial is skillful lawyering. Also Lucas and McConaughey engage in a drawl off.

The plot is smug and contrived. Everything works out neatly but the film moves through the plot briskly. The courtroom scenes really have no personality. There’s no political agenda or flair like on “Boston Legal.” Even the one-liners like Corliss the snitch’s (Shea Whigham) comments on the stand or Val Valenzuela’s (John Leguizamo) research comments are not funny. The audience sort of laughs because it’s the right time, but they’re not funny.

I thin The Lincoln Lawyer should represent the Fast and the Furious gang. He’s on the road, they’re on the run, can he get them out of trouble? That’s a movie I would see.

The premise of The Lincoln Lawyer (Matthew McConaughey practices law out of the back of his car) makes the movie sound a lot more charming than the third trailer makes it look. It seems to play as a straight-up legal thriller, albeit with a lot of stars. Additionally, we get Ryan Phillipe at The Lincoln Lawyer‘s bad-boy client, William H. Macy, Marissa Tomei, Josh Lucas, and John Leguizamo.

The trailer does a pretty good job of confusing the hell out of the viewer, so kudos to the producers for that. The big takeaway here is that there’s lots of deception, and these men love to yell at each other. Something tells me that, when all is said and done, the guilty parties will wish they had never crossed…The Lincoln Lawyer. If you’re on the fence, it’s looking like William H. Macy is sporting his funniest hairstyle since Boogie Nights, so do with that information what you will.

It would seem that Josh Lucas has an affinity for period pieces. Or period pieces have an affinity for Lucas. Either way, he’s in a lot of them these days. He has just signed on to play aviator Charles Lindbergh in the upcoming Clint Eastwood-directed biopic J. Edgar, with DiCaprio playing the titular role. What does Charles Lindbergh have to do with former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover? I have not the foggiest idea, but one thing’s for certain: If Josh Lucas was cast to play him, then Charles Lindbergh must have been a very, very handsome man.

Not content sticking to one historically significant character per year, Lucas is also in the running to be no less than Honest Abe himself in the much-anticipated film adaptation of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Lucas seems like an odd pick to play Lincoln, but the entire premise of the movie seems odd, so who knows what will work and what won’t.

Further solidifying the assertion that Lucas has caught “Lincoln Fever,” Lucas’ next role will be opposite Matthew McConaughey in The Lincoln Lawyer, about a lawyer who practices out of the back of his Lincoln automobile. Josh Lucas: One-stop shopping for all your cinematic Lincoln-related needs. (Deadline)

In this second trailer for The Lincoln Lawyer, Matthew McConaughey plays the finest car-based defender that money can buy. This time around we get an inkling more about the film’s plot and an answer to the important question, “Why a car?” The answer is simple: because offices suck.

McConaughey gets the case of his career when he’s hired to clear Ryan Phillippe after he’s been accused of imitating Charlie Sheen. However, as McConaughey learns, the golden boy isn’t as innocent as he seems. I love how the courtroom scene will undoubtedly play out.

McConaughey: “You need to confess.”

Phillippe: “No.”

McConaughey: “It would be a lot cooler if you did.”

Judge: “Case closed.”

Bailiff cues up Rupert Holmes song and everyone parties in the court room.

Never hire a lawyer who works out of their car. That’s just a general rule of thumb. In this trailer for The Lincoln Lawyer, Matthew McConaughey does exactly that — tools around town in a Lincoln while doling out shady legal advice. If he cared about the environment he’d have studied to be a Prius Lawyer.

The film has a pretty diverse cast: McConaughey, Marisa Tomei, Ryan Phillippe, William H. Macy, Michael Pena, Margarita Levieva, and most notably Josh Lucas. What was Brad Furman thinking when he cast McConaughey and Lucas against each other? Doesn’t he know that they can’t be in the same place at the same time? A) it confuses the baby, and B) if they touch, the universe will fold in on itself.
