Quentin Tarantino Says Terry Gilliam Gave “The Best Advice” During Mentorship For ‘Reservoir Dogs’

Welcome to #FlashbackFriday, where we look at past moments with filmmakers, actors, etc. and highlight something in cinema history that’s fascinating, amusing, perhaps something you never knew or have seen, you name it.

For our latest #FlashbackFriday, we wanted to take a trip back to the early-‘90s. It was a much simpler time, for sure. But it was also a time when a fresh-faced, but eager, Quentin Tarantino went to the Sundance Institute to workshop a script he was working on, titled “Reservoir Dogs.”

As they do at the Institute, Tarantino was teamed up with some more accomplished filmmakers, who would, of course, read his work, listen to his pitch, and give him notes.

10 Things You Never Knew About Get Out

10 Things You Never Knew About Get Out
Not long after the series finale of sketch comedy powerhouse Key & Peele, Jordan Peele made his feature film directorial debut with Get Out, which quickly became a modern horror classic and earned Peele an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay in the process. Here, we'll take a look at 10 things you never knew about Get Out.

Eddie Murphy

During a red carpet interview at the film's premiere, Jordan Peele talked about a bit from the Eddie Murphy standup film Delirious and the influence it had on his movie's title. "Eddie Murphy is talking about the difference between how a white family and a black family would react in a haunted house," Peele told Entertainment Tonight. In the classic routine, Murphy says if a supernatural presence told a black family to "get out," they'd leave. "It's one of the best bits of all time," Peele said.

Exclusive Interview – Cinematographer Hagen Bogdanski on shooting Papillon and Director of Photography role

Red Stewart chats with Hagen Bogdanski about Papillon…

Hagen Bogdanski is a German cinematographer who has been working in his country’s film and television industries since the mid-80s. He is best known for his work on films like The Lives of Others, Young Victoria, and The Physician. His latest movie is the biographical drama Papillon, which is set to be released on August 24th, 2018.

Flickering Myth had the privilege to interview him, and I in turn had the honor to conduct it:

Mr. Bogdanski, thank you so much for taking the time to speak with me. I’ve actually never talked to a cinematographer before, so this is an honor.

I promise it will not hurt [laughs]. So no worries.

Now I’ve always said that cinematography is the most important aspect of filmmaking. You can have a movie with bad direction, bad writing, bad sound, bad sets, and so forth.

Vincent D’Onofrio Asks Twitter Followers If It’s Ok to Play an ‘Irredeemable Racist’ Right Now

Vincent D’Onofrio asked his Twitter followers on Sunday whether it would be Ok for him to play an “irredeebable racist” in an upcoming project given the current political climate.

“I am going to ask a question to everyone that cares to answer it,” the actor tweeted. “Is Now the right time (considering the world in which live right now) for me to play a real to life characte [sic] who is irredeemable racist in a dramatic series?”

It’s unclear what dramatic series he is considering or why he decided to ask the hive mind for its input. A rep for D’Onofrio did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap.

The power of a uniform by Anne-Katrin Titze

Milan Peschel (Freytag), Max Hubacher (Willi Herold) and Frederick Lau (Kipinski) in Robert Schwentke's The Captain (Der Hauptmann)

In his Hollywood career Robert Schwentke has directed Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and Morgan Freeman for Red; Shailene Woodley, Jeff Daniels, Naomi Watts, and Miles Teller in Allegiant; Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges and Mary-Louise Parker for R.I.P.D., and Jodie Foster, Peter Sarsgaard and Sean Bean for Flightplan.

In the final installment of my conversation with The Captain (Der Hauptmann) director/screenwriter Robert Schwentke he speaks about Alexander Fehling (star of Giulio Ricciarelli's Labyrinth Of Lies) and Frederick Lau's reaction to the captain's uniform, cites a line delivered by Max von Sydow in Woody Allen's Hannah And Her Sisters, agrees with Whit Stillman on Stanley Kubrick's expatriate perspective, recalls the reaction to his Family Jewels (Eierdiebe), and states that "every character in The Captain has a reason for what they're doing.

Spielberg Goes To War With "Napoleon"

  • SneakPeek
With many big-budget film-makers comparing themselves to military generals, in charge of thousands of people working on a single campaign, director Steven Spielberg continues to develop writer/director Stanley Kubrick's anti-war "Napoleon" project as a TV mini-series.

"I’ve been developing Stanley Kubrick's screenplay," said Spielberg, "for a miniseries, not for a motion picture — about the life of Napoleon. Kubrick wrote the script in 1961...a long time ago."

Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821) was a French military and political leader who rose to prominence during the latter stages of the 'French Revolution' and its associated wars in Europe. As 'Napoleon I', he was 'Emperor' of the French from 1804 to 1815. His legal reform, the 'Napoleonic Code', has been a major influence on many civil law jurisdictions worldwide, but he is best known for his role in wars led against France, by a series of coalitions, during the 'Napoleonic Wars'.

Napoleon spread the ideals of the French Revolution,

It Happened Here

Kevin Brownlow and Andrew Mollo were teenagers when filming began on this superlative wartime thriller. Taking over eight years to complete, it imagines life in an England occupied by Nazi Germany and run by home-grown English collaborators. The film’s realism outdoes any big-studio picture — the period detail and military hardware are uncannily authentic. It also pushes the limit of the documentary form by using the ugly testimony of real English fascists in a fictional context. Mr. Brownlow opens up his behind-the-scenes film archive for this dual-format release.

Film Review: Sparrow (2008) by Johnnie To

“Told you sparrows bring bad luck.”

Every director has a passion project of his or her own. Although every project is one they had always been planning to do or were interested in doing, the difference to other project, sometimes is quite huge, which, of course, is not necessarily a positive aspect. Directors like Stanley Kubrick or Terry Gilliam have worked on their individual projects for many years, sometimes with no conclusion in sight, as in the case of the former and his “Napoleon” project.

In the case of Chinese director Johnnie To, “Sparrow” (2008) definitely qualifies as a passion project in the body of the work of the director. For a director and producer, who sometimes released three to four different films per year in his career, “Sparrow” is quite the oddity. Shooting took place over a period of three years during which he released many famous entries of his body of work,

Ewan McGregor Says ‘Shining’ Sequel Is a ‘Faithful’ Adaptation, So Stephen King Might Like It More Than Kubrick’s Film

Ewan McGregor Says ‘Shining’ Sequel Is a ‘Faithful’ Adaptation, So Stephen King Might Like It More Than Kubrick’s Film
Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining” is quite different from the Stephen King novel it is based on, which is the primary reason the legendary horror author disliked the film adaptation. King famously called Kubrick’s movie a “poor adaptation” and one of the only movie adaptations of his work that he actively didn’t enjoy. Fortuantely, King should be able to rest easy with the upcoming “Doctor Sleep” movie, based on his “Shining” sequel novel.

Ewan McGregor, who is playing an adult Danny Torrance in the horror film, recently spoke with USA Today (via CinemaBlend) about his role in Disney’s “Christopher Robin,” but the actor couldn’t help bust tease “Doctor Sleep” when asked whether or not he thought King would like the film. “Doctor Sleep” is being directed by Mike Flanagan, a horror favorite after genre efforts like “Oculus” and “Hush.”

Zahn McClarnon Is Crow Daddy in Shining Sequel Doctor Sleep

Zahn McClarnon Is Crow Daddy in Shining Sequel Doctor Sleep
Westworld's Zahn McClarnon has been cast in The Shining sequel Doctor Sleep currently in the works at Warner Bros. He'll be playing Crow Daddy, part of a mysterious psychic cult known as The True Knot who steal the lifeforces of children who can "Shine". He joins previously announced cast members Ewan McGregor who's playing an adult Danny Torrance, Rebecca Ferguson who's playing The True Knot leader Rose the Hat, Alex Essoe who's playing Wendy Torrance, and Carl Lumbly who will play Dick Halloran.

McClarnon has been considered a bona fide breakout for the reoccurring role of Akecheta, a Native American "host" on HBO's Westworld (which recently concluded its second season). Horror fans may also remember him for his supporting roles in Resolution and Bone Tomahawk, though the actor has primarily worked in TV appearing as a regular in The Sons, Frontier, and Fargo. As for his character in Doctor Sleep,

The Shining Sequel Doctor Sleep Casts Dick Halloran And Wendy Torrance

As a longtime lover of The Shining, you’d better believe that I’m right there with those of you who’ve been seemingly waiting an eternity for a sequel on the silver screen. Fortunately, the gargantuan success of It forced Hollywood to fast track an adaptation of Stephen King’s 2013 novel, Doctor Sleep.

For a short while, we’d been waiting on the studio to round out cast and crew, as Ewan McGregor (Danny Torrance) and Rebecca Ferguson (Rose the Hat) had previously been the only ones named to star in the picture directed by Mike Flanagan.

But now, we’ve received confirmation on two very important puzzle pieces falling into place, those being Dick Halloran and Wendy Torrance. Thanks to Deadline, it’s been revealed that Carl Lumbly (Supergirl) will play the former, with Alex Essoe (The Maestro) being enlisted as the latter.

Personally, I’m curious to

The Shining sequel Doctor Sleep finds its Wendy Torrance, Dick Halloran and Crow Daddy

Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros.Stephen King adaptation Doctor Sleep has cast Alex Essoe (Starry Eyes) and Carl Lumbly (Supergirl) as Wendy Torrance and Dick Halloran, characters portrayed by Shelley Duvall and Scatman Crothers in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining.

The duo join the previously announced Ewan McGregor (Christopher Robin), who is playing the now-adult Danny Torrance, while Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Fallout) is set to portray Rose the Hat, the leader of The True Knot – a psychic cult which feeds on the “steam” created by children who possess the shining.

In addition to Essoe and Lumbly, Variety is reporting that Zahn McClarnon (Westworld) is in talks to play Crow Daddy, a member of the villainous cult and the right hand man to Ferguson’s Rose the Hat.

Doctor Sleep takes place 36 years after The Shining and finds Danny as a drifter, desperately trying to shed his father’s legacy of despair,

Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey is Being Re-Released in IMAX!

I have never seen Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey on the big screen. I tried to go once to a special screening but it ended up selling out and I wasn't able to get in. This is one film that I've always wanted to see on the big screen and it looks like I'm finally going to get my chance! Not only that, but I'll get to see it the best way possible... in IMAX!

In honor of the film's 50th anniversary, Warner Bros. is going to re-release the film in IMAX in select theaters. These theaters will be located in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Toronto starting on August 24th.

Christopher Nolan recently oversaw 2001: A Space Odyssey’s restoration in 70mm print, but this is the first time the film will be offered in IMAX. The film is also getting a 4K home entertainment release.

Casting Update for Movie Adaptation of Doctor Sleep, Stephen King’s Sequel to The Shining

The cast is growing for Mike Flanagan's film adaptation of Stephen King's The Shining sequel.

Deadline reports that Alex Essoe is set to play Wendy Torrance, the mother of Danny Torrance, in Doctor Sleep, while Carl Lumbly is lined up for the role of Dick Halloran.

Dick Halloran and Wendy Torrance were played memorably by Scatman Crothers and Shelley Duvall, respectively, in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining adaptation. The Doctor Sleep film, meanwhile, will be an adaptation of King's sequel to The Shining novel, which has a different ending than Kubrick's version.

Variety previously reported that Ewan McGregor will play an adult version of Danny Torrance in the Doctor Sleep movie, so Essoe will likely be playing his mother shortly after the haunting events at the Overlook Hotel in The Shining, before the story flashes forward to when Danny is an adult.

The Doctor Sleep movie is slated for a January 24th,

‘Doctor Sleep’ Gets Carl Lumbly For Dick Halloran, Alex Essoe For Wendy Torrance

  • Deadline
‘Doctor Sleep’ Gets Carl Lumbly For Dick Halloran, Alex Essoe For Wendy Torrance
Exclusive: Warner Bros is setting Carl Lumbly to play Dick Halloran and Alex Essoe to play Wendy Torrance in Doctor Sleep, the continuation of the storyline from The Shining. Those are the roles that Scatman Crothers and Shelley Duvall played in the Stanley Kubrick-directed original, if you are keeping score at home.

Mike Flanagan is directing Doctor Sleep, which stars Ewan McGregor as grown up Danny Torrance, and Rebecca Ferguson plays Rose The Hat, head of a cult that feeds on the “steam” created by young people who have a touch of the “shining.” It is an excruciating fatal process for the victims and Torrance finds himself in their cross hairs as he tries to help a young girl elude their grasp. Flanagan rewrote Akiva Goldsman’s adaptation of Stephen King’s 2013 novel that picks up the life of the Redrum kid when he is in his 40s and
