Hollywood News from MovieWeb - 15 hours 37 min ago

Felicity Jones has signed on to star in A Monster Calls for director Juan Antonio Bayona, with Liam Neeson being courted to play the Monster.

We first reported on this adaptation of Patrick Ness' novel back in March, when River Road Entertainment, Participant Media, Lionsgate International, and Focus Features teamed up to produce and finance the project. Felicity Jones is playing "Mum" in this story, which centers on a young boy who escapes into his own fantasy world, to get away from his dying mother and the classmates who bully him daily. This new world is filled with monsters and fairy tales that deal with loss, courage and faith. Patrick Ness wrote the book based on an original idea by the late Siobhan Dowd. Ness and his illustrator Jim Kay won the Carnegie Medal and Greenaway Medal in 2012, which are presented to the U.K.'s best children's books each year.

Patrick Ness wrote the screenplay adaptation himself, with Bel&#233n Atienza producing. River Road's Bill Pohlad and Mitch Horwits, Participant's Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King, and Lionsgate's Patrick Wachsberger are executive producing. No production schedule was given for the 2016 release.

Felicity Jones will next be seen in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and the upcoming True Story, which stars Jonah Hill and James Franco.

A Monster Calls comes to theaters in 2016 and stars Felicity Jones. The film is directed by Juan Antonio Bayona.

Scarlett Johansson and Lupita Nyong'o Circle 'The Jungle Book'

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - 16 hours 13 min ago

Scarlett Johansson and Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o are in negotiations to join the voice cast of Warner Bros.' live-action/CGI hybrid The Jungle Book. The actress' join Idris Elba, who signed on back in March.

This adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's beloved novel follows Mowgli, who has not been cast yet, a young boy who is raised in the wilderness by a pack of wolves, a bear and a black panther. Scarlett Johansson is in early talks to voice Kaa, a python who eats other animals after hypnotizing them. This snake is the second villain next to the man-eating tiger Shere Khan (Idris Elba), who views Mowgli as a threat to his domain. Lupita Nyong'o is in final talks to voice Rakcha, a mother wolf who takes Mowgli in.

Jon Favreau is directing from an adapted screenplay by Justin Marks, with the director also producing alongside Brigham Taylor. It isn't known when production will begin, although the project has some competition with Disney's version of The Jungle Book, which has Andy Serkis attached to direct from a script by Steve Kloves (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2). Rudyard Kipling's book is in the public domain, which allows both adaptations to move forward. It isn't known when shooting will begin on Warner Bros.' version of The Jungle Book, which has an October 9, 2015 release date in place.

Scarlett Johansson currently stars in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Under the Skin, which are both playing in theaters, and she recently started production on Avengers: Age of Ultron. Lupita Nyong'o is coming off her Best Supporting Actress Oscar win for 12 Years a Slave, and she also recently starred in Non-Stop.

'Midnight Rider' Loses William Hurt Following Crew Member's Death

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - 17 hours 1 min ago

William Hurt has dropped out of the Gregg Allman biopic Midnight Rider, two months after production was suspended following the death of 27-year-old camera assistant Sarah Jones. Since William Hurt was playing Gregg Allman in this adaptation of the singer's biography, it remains unclear whether or not the production will start back up again, as investigations continue into the tragic on-set accident.

Production was taking place in Atlanta, Georgia when, on February 20, a train collided with film equipment in rural Doctortown, GA, where the crew was setting up for shooting on a train trestle that overlooks the Altamaha River, resulting in Sarah Jones' death and seven other crew members getting injured. According to Deadline, the movie's producers were apparently still trying to rally the crew to continue production in the days following, but shooting was eventually suspended.

William Hurt was one of the actors on the bridge who were filming a dream sequence involving a mattress laying on the tracks, and nearly escaped injury on February 20. The actor was said to be visibly shaken after the incident, and it wasn't known if he would come back. The actor is currently shooting another movie overseas, The Moon and the Sun with Pierce Brosnan.

A source close to the production reveals that the producers were already looking to recast several roles, including the Gregg Allman character played by William Hurt. Director Randall Miller reportedly wants to shift production from the Atlanta area to Los Angeles, where his Unclaimed Freight Productions company is based, in hopes to restart production as early as June. News of the production restart has prompted a flurry of activity on the Internet in protest, including a page entitled "I Refuse To Work on Midnight Rider," which has almost 11,000 members.

Investigations are still ongoing regarding who may be to blame for Sarah Jones' death. Randall Miller, his Unclaimed Freight Productions company and other crew members could face criminal or civil lawsuits once the investigations are completed.

Midnight Rider is in development and stars Eliza Dushku, Bradley Whitford, Wyatt Russell, Kathy Baker, Joel Moore, Aldis Hodge, Tyson Ritter, Chad Lindberg. The film is directed by Randall Miller.

Ron Howard Will Direct 'The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair'

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - 17 hours 33 min ago

Ron Howard is attached to direct and produce an adaptation of Joel Dicker's hit novel The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair for Warner Bros.

The book, which has become a publishing sensation in Europe, follows a novelist who gets caught up in a scandal involving his beloved mentor, a heavyweight of American literature, when a 15-year-old girl is found dead in his backyard. The book was published by Bernard de Fallois' Editions de Fallois, and has already sold more than 2 million copies. The book finished just behind Fifty Shades of Grey on the charts in France, and it has also outsold Dan Brown's Inferno in Italy and Spain. Penguin will publish the novel in the U.S. next month.

The filmmaker is also producing with his Imagine Entertainment partner Brian Grazer, with deals already in the works for Eug&#233nie Grandval (The Next Three Days) and Claire Lundberg to produce as well. Imagine's Erica Huggins and Alexandre Dauman are serving as executive producers, with Jesse Ehrman and Racheline Benveniste overseeing the project for Warner Bros.

Ron Howard is currently in post-production on Heart of the Sea, which stars Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy and Ben Whishaw. Ron Howard and Brian Grazer are also working on an adaptation of Dan Brown's Inferno, with Tom Hanks set to reprise his role as Robert Langdon from The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons.

'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Promo Art with Electro, Rhino and Goblin

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - Wed, 23/04/2014 - 22:53

Maybe it feels like The Amazing Spider-Man 2 already came out. Technically, it did last week, as it debuted internationally in theaters across the globe. Those of us in the U.S. still have another week and a half to go, which means Sony Pictures is still promoting the sequel as much as they can. Today, we get a ton of new promo art images and photos from the movie. Seen here are three Wall posters featuring the main villains Goblin, Electro and Rhino, which are available to purchase at Wal-Mart. We also get a handful of new photos featuring Chris Cooper turning a nice shade of green as Norman Osborn, and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy in what might be her final moments alive. Is she spending them well? Stay tuned after the images for how the recent split between writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci may affect The Amazing Spider-Man 3.

Marc Webb is exhaustedly trying to promote The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in theatres before its domestic release in theaters next Friday. Yesterday, it was announced that longtime writing duo Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who helped pen various drafts of this superhero sequel, have split up. But don't worry about that affecting The Amazing Spider-Man 3. It sounds like the story is already in place, and their departure will probably help, not hinder, the project. Marc Webb made these comments about the creative divorce.

"I don't think it will affect The Amazing Spider-Man 3. That is a very protected storyline. I love those guys, and they are going to do great. They will always be our partners."

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 comes to theaters May 2nd, 2014 and stars Martin Sheen, Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield, Dane DeHaan, Stan Lee, Sarah Gadon, Felicity Jones, Jamie Foxx. The film is directed by Marc Webb.
