Universal Snags 'Safe House' Writer's Plane Crash Movie 'Black Box'
The success of writer Davis Guggenheim became as much of a story surrounding his first film, Safe House, as the movie itself earlier this year. Guggenheim was previously the editor of the magazine US Weekly and began writing scripts in his spare time, selling Safe House on spec (meaning nobody hired him to write it beforehand) to Universal before it went on to be a surprise hit in February. Now he's done it again, as THR reports Universal won a bidding war for Guggenheim's latest effort, the plane crash thriller Black Box. It's being compared to Enemy of the State and Three Days of the Condor, so we're in. Read more here.
Gareth Edwards' New 'Godzilla' Will Stomp into Theaters Summer 2014
We've been anticipating Monsters director Gareth Edwards' take on Godzilla ever since it wasannounced in January of 2011. Thankfully, Comic-Con this summer brought a surprise teaser trailer that will excited audiences who may not even be excited about seeing another Godzilla film. Warner Bros. and Legendary are still behind the film with Edwards expected to direct from a screenplay by David Callaham (The Expendables), David S. Goyer (the Dark Knight trilogy) and Max Borenstein (The Seventh Son) and the film has been slated for release on May 16th, 2014. That's right, we only have to wait a year and a half. Read more.
Michel Hazanavicius to Direct Tom Hanks 'In The Garden of Beasts'
Even before The Artist won Best Picture at this year's Academy Awards, we reported that directorMichel Hazanavicius had signed on to direct a remake of The Search, a film that took place in the aftermath of WWII. Nothing has come of that project yet, but now the French director could tackle a film that takes place just before WWII, as Deadline reports he's in talks to direct In The Garden of Beasts, which has Tom Hanks attached to produce and star as the first American ambassador to Hitler's Germany. Natalie Portman is also reportedly being considered to play Hanks' daughter. Sounds great to us. Read more.
I hope everyone has a great week!Hillary
