Directors

Before M. Night Shyamalan basically imploded into himself in one inept and repetitive execution after another he made Unbreakble. That film kind of concluded perfectly and a sequel would most likely ruin it, but evidently peo...
UPDATE: Universal has already found a replacement in second-unit director and VFX specialist Cedric Nicolas-Troyan. He helped on the first film and is also set to direct the upcoming Highlander reboot. Well alright. ...
If you're one of many people, like myself and the rest of the Flixist staff, then you're anxiously awaiting the next installment of the Fast & Furious franchise, Furious 7. That's all thanks to the work of Justin Lin, and...
A new film adaptation of Stephen King's It has been bouncing around for a while now with director Cary Fukunaga attached. It hasn't really gotten off the ground, though, but now, possibly because Fukunaga is so cool nowa...
I think we were all a bit surprised that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was (1) not that bad and (2) a massive hit. Thanks to those to facts a sequel was pretty much announced right away and director Jonathan Liebesma...
Need some brooding 90s superhero-like goth stuff? The Crow, which, lets be honest, wasn't that great movie, is being remade and now it has a brand new director. Replacing J. Javier Gutierrez, who originally replaced ...
We're going to get so many superhero films the rest of this decade I say we just pay attention to the ones with enough unique bits to stand out. Chief among these is Warner Bros' eventual take on Wonder Woman. After our most ...
I've reached a crossroads. Writing so much about the Fast and the Furious franchise makes me feel like such a hypocrite. Take the first trailer for Furious 7, for instance. Here I am celebrating a series' seventh installment ...
I think we're all aware of the under representation of female directors in Hollywood. That problem is even greater when we're talking about big budget blockbusters. Women directors are almost completely missing from tent pole...
Do you know of Harmony Korine's last film, Spring Breakers? If you somehow don't, please remedy this immediately. It was one of the best surprises of 2013, and if his next film can be anywhere near as good then holy moley my ...
In case you missed the news The Conjuring 2 was delayed until 2016 instead of having a 2015 release date. That was kind of weird because Annabelle did really well at the box office so you'd think they'd want more ou...
Ready for some confirmations out of nowhere? Paul Feig is actually going to direct the third Ghostbusters film and they've hired Katie Dippold to help him write the script. In case the name is unfamiliar Dippold wrote Th...
Last we heard about a sequel to the 2009 film Zombieland, was about two years ago when the kibosh was effectively put on any sequel talk. Then last year talk had begun of a Zombieland TV series for Amazon's Instant Video. But...
David Ayer is one of my favorite folks in the business right now. Although he's only directed a few films (most notably End of Watch and the upcoming WWII tank film, Fury), he's a great screenwriter who's really put in the wo...
A remake of The Magnificent Seven has been in the works for years now with Tom Cruise at one point attached (maybe he still is). But with Tarantino getting ready to drop The Hateful Eight, a Tarantino homa...
I'm pretty sure once the Shadow of the Colossus movie is made we'll be repeating that subheader (which is a quote from the game) back at the filmmakers because despite being awesome I fear they will ruin it. Wait, you fo...
Well here's a hell of a tease (not to mention what would be an awesome wedding). J.J. Abrams just tweeted this image of him and Edgar Wright holding hands hinting strongly that he's getting married to the man... or that Wrigh...
Time to get all film schooly up in here. If you've done any study into the medium you know that film is not just the picture projected but the substance itself. For years avante garde filmmakers have been working on the mediu...
Do you folks remember The Ring? It was a horror movie in which watching a VHS tape leads to your death in seven days when a ghost girl comes out of a TV to eat donuts or something. It was all the rage for about two weeks, the...
Boyhood is supposed to be really good. Really, really good. I haven't seen it myself but the film's critical reception has been overwhelmingly positive. I have to give Linklater props for filming the movie in such a unique wa...
You won't believe it, but The Guns of Christmas Past is exactly what it sounds like: an action adaptation of the classic A Christmas Carol. A very loose adaptation. The film has just landed a director in Kevin Tancharoen...
Ever wondered what happened to that Six Million Dollar Man reboot that kept trying to get off the ground? Only vaguely, right? I mean of all the reboots possible who is this exciting? We've got enough super powered peopl...
