Academy Award–nominated writer-director Lawrence Kasdan's last two directorial efforts — 2003's Dreamcatcher and 1999's Mumford — weren't critical disasters, but didn't exactly set the box office on fire, either. Still, after writing the scripts for Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Empire Strikes Back, and writing and directing movies like The Big Chill, Silverado and Grand Canyon, we're always interested in what Kasdan is working on.
His latest movie, Darling Companion, stars Diane Keaton as a woman who finds a dog that she eventually loves more than her husband (Kevin Kline). When her husband loses the dog, she enlists a search party to help find it, including a psychic (Ayelet Zurer). Set for an April release, Yahoo! has released the first trailer for the movie. watch the trailer >> Posted 01.24.12 by Ryan
Warner Bros. upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel won't be opening for another year and a half, but rumors are already circulating that a sequel is in the works.
According to ThinkMcFlyThink, the studio is pleased with what they've seen from Man of Steel and have already compiled a shortlist of writers for a possible sequel, including Steve Kloves (the Harry Potter movies), Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim), and Lawrence Kasdan (The Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark). No deals are in place for any writer, nor does the report claim that an offer is in place at this point. The report also claims that the studio is pleased with the recent rewrites from husband-and-wife screenwriting team Kieran and Michele Mulroney (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows). David Goyer wrote the original script. More on Man of Steel from Henry Cavill >> Posted 11.16.11 by Ryan
The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Lawrence Kasden (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Empire Strikes Back) has been hired by Warner Brothers to write a remake of the 1981 cult classic Clash of the Titans.
The story follows the adventure of Zeus' son, Perseus, as he attempts to rescue Princess Andromeda. Along the way, he is challenged to a series of tasks by Zeus which include slaying Medusa and capturing Pegasus.
The decision to remake the pic is no-doubt influenced by the rabid success of 300, also by Warner Brothers. Furthermore, it begs the question, what other lousy movies with ancient men in their underpants are studios going to remake now in hopes of find the next 300? Posted 04.16.07 by reelz
