BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Danny Boyle has made some recent remarks on the possibility of his directing 28 Months Later, and the results might shock you.
Back during the Telluride Film Festival, Danny Boyle billed the screening of Steve Jobs as a ďwork in progress.Ē The filmmaker told press that he was still tweaking bits of the film, though the specifics were unclear at the time. During the press junket for Steve Jobs a couple weeks back, Cinema Blend sat down with Boyle, and he discussed the changes more in-depth, as well as their overall purpose.
Steve Jobs is not your typical biopic. In fact, itís not a biopic at all, according to screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. The spitfire wordsmith behind The Newsroom, The West Wing, and The Social Network sat down with Cinema Blend to chat about his take on the late Apple co-founder.
When biopics are made they are often controversial. When youíre digging around in somebodyís history you are bound to upset people, and thatís apparently what happened in the case of the upcoming Steve Jobs.
Trainspotting 2 has been talked about for years, and while it still looks to be moving forward, it is doing so with one major change: it is no longer called Porno.
Following the filmís debut at the Telluride Film Festival and ahead of its upcoming premiere at the New York Film Festival, a new Steve Jobs trailer has hit the web. Michael Fassbender stars as the man behind the big Apple, surrounded by a star-studded cast and crew.
Movies that tell the story of real people, especially those still alive, are even more complicated than normal films, and Steve Wozniak has some very strong feelings about the new Steve Jobs biopic.
Director Danny Boyle has spent years talking up the idea of doing a sequel to Trainspotting, but has regularly found himself distracted by other projects and opportunities, but that time may be over. This is because the filmmaker is now talking about Trainspotting 2 as his next feature.
Biographical films are always walking something of a tightrope. On the one hand they have to tell the true story about what happened to their subject, or theyíre not very good biographies. On the other hand, they have to tell interesting, or exciting stories, or they wonít make for very good movies.
After a mere 60 seconds of footage, the new Steve Jobs trailer, featuring the remarkable Michael Fassbender as the celebrated Apple co-founder, has been released. Watch the new riveting new footage now.
Ewan McGregor made his first big impact in Danny Boyleís darkly humorous junkie romp, Trainspotting. Nearly two decades later, amidst some apparent bad blood with the director, the possibility of a return is promising.
Alex Garland has admitted that he's come up with a pretty nifty idea for 28 Months Later.
Universal has picked it up from Sony's turnaround. Danny Boyle is still on board to direct the film, and now Michael Fassbender is no longer being eyed for the lead, but is officially attached to star.
Despite having the Academy Award-winning power of Aaron Sorkin and Danny Boyle behind it, the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic has been epically struggling through pre-production - and it has basically just hit rock bottom. Reports are coming in that Sony Pictures has decided to put the project in turnaround - essentially leaving it available for any other studio to pick up. The good news is that the developing film may already have a new home lined up.
What a difference 12 days makes. After only being confirmed as Steve Jobs on October 23rd, Christian Bale pulled out of the role on Monday and seemingly left Aaron Sorkinís planned biopic in crisis. But donít fret, because Michael Fassbender is here to save the day. The X-Men: Days of Future Past star is now believed to be the front-runner to replace the Welsh actor.
Christian Bale isnít a flake who picks up and drops films at random. If he truly believes heís wrong for the part, I can understand him passing on it.
Seth Rogen is reportedly in line to star in Aaron Sorkin's upcoming Steve Jobs biopic. Thatís right: Seth Rogen might be starring opposite Christian Bale, who last week was confirmed as the lead in the hugely anticipated drama. Am I the only one who is a tad concerned for Rogenís safety?
The year 2016 will mark the 20th anniversary of the release of Danny Boyle's Trainspotting, and it's slated to be the production start of it's long-awaited sequel. So says the star it launched, Ewan McGregor.
As if the idea of Christian Bale and Danny Boyle working on a movie wasnít tantalizing enough, the duo will be adapting a screenplay by Aaron Sorkin, Oscar-winning screenwriter of The Social Network, Moneyball, A Few Good Men and televisionís The West Wing.
For those of you that have been waiting for the Danny Boyle-directed biopic based on the life of Steve Jobs, it's been a pretty rough road up until this point. It pains us to say this, but it just got a lot rougher.
