Directed by Steve McQueen and adapted by John Ridley, the film narrates the true story of Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a 19th century free black man from New York who's sold into slavery in 1841. While the film isn't for those...

David Fincher is Back on 'Black Hole' With Brad Pitt Behind Him

David Fincher, Black Hole
Okay, first things first: David Fincher is not on a remake of the 1979 Disney film The Black Hole. That remake is still in flux (though supposedly Joseph Kosinski is/was going to direct that). No, it's the Charles Burns comic Black Hole that David Fincher is now planning to direct, a project that's been in the works for over a decade, and one...

'World War Z' Sequel In Need Of A Director

Published by

World War Z
World War Z was a movie riddled with problems, delays and, for a minute there, the slight possibility that it would make nearly nothing in the box office. The film miraculously made back it's money and is leaning towards a sequel, but that's where the latest problem comes in. If Marc Forster isn't going to return to the director's chair, who would take the...

12 years a slave
The true story of Solomon Northup is a wholly haunting one—a talented violinist, he was kidnapped from Washington D.C. in 1841 and taken to Louisiana, where he was sold into slavery for 12 years.  It was only a matter of time before Northup’s wrenching story was made into a biopic, and so director Steve McQueen, a master of excellent films that make...

There's no denying the last couple years of Ridley Scott's career have been hit and miss (Body of Lies, Robin Hood, and Prometheus are his last three efforts), but there's also no denying that he's still one of the best working filmmakers, and generally does well when he's working with a good script.

Brad Pitt's 'World War Z': Apparently, It Doesn't Suck

Published by

World War Z
A megabudget sci-fi film without an ending.  A giant movie star floundering in an out of control production.  A director who has reportedly lost control of the project.  All told, it sounds as if the Brad Pitt-starring, Marc Forster-directed World War Z reportedly had all the makings of another bomb of Waterworld proportions.  And then...
