"Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" Movie Review 


Another year, another attempt to create a revisionist take on a classic Brothers Grimm tale. It did not work for Catherine Hardwicke’s “Red Riding Hood” but will it create magic for Tommy Wirkola’s (“Dead Snow”) “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters?”

The R-rated 3D spectacle stars Jeremy Renner as Hansel and Gemma Arterton as Gretel. And just like the title suggests, they are now grown-up and hunting witches. Their nemesis is Famke Janssen as the Evil Witch Muriel.

So how many kisses does “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” get? Take a look.

J.J. Abrams Wields Lightsaber, Will Direct "Star Wars 7" for Disney 


From "Star Trek" to "Star Wars!"

Despite telling Empire Magazine last month that he turned down Disney's offer to direct the seventh "Star Wars" flick, J.J. Abrams is back and ready to helm one of the best and most popular franchises in TV history.

According to Variety, Disney is closing the deal with the director/producer.

Wow, Abrams is the ultimate fanboy! He successfully rebooted "Star Trek" for Paramount and the sequel "Into Darkness" is opening this summer. Now, he's about to enter the world of "Star Wars!"

Hope Abrams lives long and prosper for the force is with him.

Sundance Purchase: "The Descendants" Writers Sell "The Way, Way Back" 


The Oscar-winning writers, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, have sold "The Way, Way Back" to Fox Searchlight. The writing/directing duo's latest project stars Steve Carell, Toni Collette, Sam Rockwell, Allison Janney, Maya Rudolph, AnnaSophia Robb, Amanda Peet, and Liam James. "The Way, Way Back" is scheduled for release Summer of 2013.

Here's the full press release from Fox Searchlight:

PARK CITY, UT January 22, 2013 – Fox Searchlight Pictures Presidents Nancy Utley and Stephen Gilula announced today that the company has acquired rights to North America as well as most major territories to the heartfelt comedy THE WAY, WAY BACK. Directed and written by Academy Award® winners Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, THE WAY, WAY BACK stars Steve Carell, Toni Collette, Sam Rockwell, Allison Janney, Maya Rudolph, AnnaSophia Robb, Amanda Peet and Liam James.

The film was produced by Kevin J. Walsh of The Walsh Company and Tom Rice of Sycamore Pictures, and executive produced by Sycamore’s Ben Nearn and George Parra, OddLot Entertainment’s Gigi Pritzker, Faxon, and Rash. OddLot Entertainment and Sycamore Pictures co-financed the project.

The film is scheduled to be released in Summer, 2013.

“Nat and Jim have crafted a uproarious coming of age story and it is great to be reunited with them,” said Gilula and Utley. “The amazingly pitch perfect cast never misses a beat and was well deserving of the standing ovation the film received yesterday.”

“This is a very personal film and it's been a long journey. We are so overwhelmed by the response it received at Sundance and are beyond delighted that it's found a home with our family at Fox Searchlight,” said Faxon and Rash

“We are all elated that a vibrant company like Fox Searchlight shares our enthusiasm for the film and faith in Jim and Nat as writers, directors and storytellers,” said Rice and Walsh.

THE WAY, WAY BACK is the funny and poignant coming of age story of 14-year-old Duncan’s (Liam James) summer vacation with his mother, Pam (Toni Collette), her overbearing boyfriend, Trent (Steve Carell), and his daughter, Steph (Zoe Levin).

Having a rough time fitting in, the introverted Duncan finds an unexpected friend in gregarious Owen (Sam Rockwell), manager of the Water Wizz water park. Through his funny, clandestine friendship with Owen, Duncan slowly opens up to and begins to finally find his place in the world - all during a summer he will never forget.

The deal was brokered by Fox Searchlight’s Executive Vice President of Worldwide Acquisitions Tony Safford, Senior Vice President of Business Affairs Megan O’Brien and Vice President of Acquisitions & Co-Productions Ray Strache. Creative Artists Agency (CAA) and WME Global negotiated the deal with Craig Emanuel on behalf of the financiers.

Sierra / Affinity is handling international sales for the project for territories outside those acquired by Fox Searchlight Pictures.

Fox Searchlight Pictures is a specialty film company that both finances and acquires motion pictures. It has its own marketing and distribution operations, and its films are distributed internationally by Twentieth Century Fox. Fox Searchlight Pictures is a unit of Fox Filmed Entertainment, a unit of Fox Entertainment Group.
