‘It’ Director Andy Muschietti Adapting H.G. Wells Classic ‘The Time Machine’, Leonardo DiCaprio Producing

Andy Muschietti directed last year’s adaptation of Stephen King’s It, but Muschietti is no clown.

James Bond 25 director Cary Fukunaga teases his approach to Daniel Craig’s final 007 movie

Last month the American director was announced as Danny Boyle’s replacement on Bond 25.

‘Sicario: Day of The Soldado’ Director Stefano Sollima on the Importance of Authenticity and Real Locations [Interview]

With Sicario: Day of The Soldado, director Stefano Sollima roughened the edges of screenwriter Taylor Sheridan‘s potential trilogy. With Kate Macy (Emily Blunt) no longer around, Sollima felt Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro) and Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) unleashed naturally meant things would turn bleaker. A crowd-pleasing thriller Sollima’s sequel is not, and nor should it be. It’s a suitably bleak […]

‘Mandy’ Director Panos Cosmatos on Pitting Nicolas Cage Against Evil [Interview]

The unnervingly beautiful and grotesque worlds born in Panos Cosmatos‘ imagination are remarkable. The writer-director showed with his directorial debut Beyond the Black Rainbow that he knows how to keep an audience’s eyes glued to the screen, but he can do far more than compose piercing images and an all consuming atmosphere. The visuals in Cosmatos’ new […]
