Yet another live-action project is gearing up for production at Disney, as their new Winnie the Pooh movie has taken a sizable step closer to the big screen. In a move that can certainly be described as nothing less than A Choice, the studio has hired World War Z and Quantum of Solace director Marc Forster to helm Christopher Robin’s live-action return to the Hundred Acre Woods.

Director Marc Forster Is Making a Trilogy Out of Unproduced Stanley Kubrick Script

by Jacob Hall June 22, 2015 @ 3:43 PM
Over a decade ago, Steven Spielberg directed A.I. Artificial Intelligence, a bleak science fiction epic that had been the brainchild of the late master filmmaker Stanley Kubrick for decades. And while film fans continue to debate the quality of the film (psst, it’s a masterpiece), everyone pretty much agreed that Spielberg, one of the greatest filmmakers of all time, was one of the few people worthy enough to step into Kubrick’s boots. You won’t find such universal agreement with the news that Marc Forster is adapting one of Kubrick’s old un-produced screenplays. Actually, the news that The Downslope will be the first in a trilogy may be a enough to get the real film snobs to riot.

'World War Z' Review

by Jordan Hoffman June 21, 2013 @ 9:50 AM
The title is 'World War Z,' but I can think up two other letters: "O" and "K."
'World War Z' is okay because it zips along with the fury of a computer-generated cascade of fast zombies. 'World War Z' is okay because Brad Pitt is a great leading man, even if his character has no depth. 'World War Z' is okay because there is always a fatalistic draw to see our social order tumble and great cities reduced to cinders.
It is also, unfortunately, merely okay because there's nothing in this movie you haven't seen before.

No such complaints today, however, as the first featurette for the summer release has arrived, introducing us to plenty of crazed swarms of the undead. Check it out after the break!

One piece of Hollywood talk that's caught on is the concept of "Director Jail." The theory is this: if you get a chance to make a big movie and blow it, you're taken out of the game for a while. For example, Stephen Sommers was riding high after the first two 'Mummy' movies, but then came 'Van Helsing' and he didn't direct again for five years. So the latest news has us wondering: How come Marc Forster isn't in director jail?
