Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprioMartin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese‘s longstanding relationship has lasted for five films, and now there is a new report that it will extend to six. Though Scorsese has a full slate of films that he is either reportedly attached to, or will most definitely work on, the director’s next project will be an adaptation of Devil in the White City, with DiCaprio set to play one of the real-life murderers. The Erik Larson novel, which blends meticulous research with a thrilling fictional narrative, is set during the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago, where a serial killer masquerading as a doctor lures unsuspecting victims to a crematorium and gas chamber built on the fairgrounds.

‘Captain Phillips’ Trailer: Paul Greengrass Takes True-Life Hostage Crisis To Dangerous Waters

Captain Phillips

A large part of what makes films based on true-life stories so appealing to a wide audience is the fact that it relies so much on the drama. It’s what keeps the audiences glued to their seat, because even though they probably already know what is going to happen because they’ve read about it, they want to experience it first hand by watching it. So imagine what happens when they watch Paul Greengrass‘ latest directorial effort Captain Phillips, starring Tom Hanks in the titular role.

You can watch the trailer for the film here below.

For those who might not remember, Captain Richard Phillips was captaining the Maersk Alabama, a cargo ship, when it was attacked by Somali pirates. He offered himself as a hostage in order to save his crew members from further harm. This act of heroism made its way into national headlines as the world held its breath to see what would happen to the captain. The rest is pretty much history, but it does have all the ingredients for a intense drama.

RELEASE DATE: August 17, 2012

Before a movie adaptation of The Hunger Games was announced, I knew not one thing about it, not even the title. Going into finally seeing the movie for myself, I knew it was based on a wildly popular book series and whatever small story and character tidbits picked up while writing about various casting news and such. This is how I prefer going into any movie, whether it be an adaptation or sequel or completely original, so that there is no expectation whatsoever.

The premise is simple, yet also quite brutal. After an apocalyptic event transforms North America, a wealthy government called the Capitol takes total control over the less-wealthy people and forms them into thirteen districts. After an uprising by the people ultimately results in the destruction of one of the districts, an unthinkable punishment is put into effect to keep everyone in check: each year, one boy and one girl ages 12-18 from each of the twelve districts will be selected at random to compete in the Hunger Games, where all 24 will fight to the death until only one remains.

Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow

And this project just got a whole lot more interesting.

A remake of the brilliant Thin Man, itself based off of a Dashiell Hammett novel, isn’t a piece that is being clamored about too much. It’s a beloved classic, and at this point, it doesn’t seem like it will be done the justice it deserves.  That is, until this bit of news.

Lionsgate To Deliver ‘The Hunger Games’ Adaptation In 2012

It’s been announced by Lionsgate Films that they’ve set a release date for The Hunger Games, the adaptation of the popular young-adult novel of the same name by author Suzanne Collins.

The movie is set to be released on March 23, 2012, and tells the story of a post apocalyptic future where North America is now known as the country of Panem, where twelve districts are controlled by the government in a city called Capitol. As a punishment, an annual event called the Hunger Games is held, where kids — one boy and one girl from each district within the ages of 12 to 18 — are forced to fight to the death to show that in these brutal times, the controlling government is in power and not even the younger civilians are safe.

The Hunger Games is set to be directed by Gary Ross, who previously helmed Seabiscuit and Pleasantville. Ross has also written Big, Dave, and The Tale of Despereaux along with the two titles mentioned above. Writer Billy Ray (Breach, State of Play) penned the screenplay, but it’s unclear whether his draft will be the one used for filming.
