Directors


Some unclear news coming from the old rumor mill. El Miyambe reports that once X-Men: Apocalypse and Wolverine 3 are done so is the Bryan Singer X-MEN universe that started back in 2000. You can read his full q...

If you're not aware the American adaptation of Death Note, a manga about a kid finding a book that magically kills people when you write their name in it, has been floating around for quite some time. The last we heard of thi...

For those who care about the happenings at the Cannes Film Festival, the past few days has been very exciting. Late last week parts of the official program was unveiled, and today the members of the jury has been made pu...

News that Michelle MacLaren was going to helm the Wonder Woman film got everyone pretty excited, and then news that she left the project got everyone unexcited (until Patty Jenkins came on). Of course the news was not de...



It's like two steps forward and two steps back for WB and DC. It's just a natural fact that DC's films are having quite a bit of trouble on the back end. It seemed fine at first with WB openly searching for a female director ...

Chris Miller and Phil Lord are awesome. Everything (about them) is awesome. So whatever project they take next will most likely be awesome, and they seem to have some choices. WB is courting them for the upcoming The Flash&nb...

With Avengers: Age of Ultron only a month away, it's time to care about the films we'll be getting forever away from now! According to Badass Digest, who has gotten the info from an un-identified source so take it with some s...

Cult filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky (pictured above with his biggest fans, Kanye West and a grey cat) successfully funded his new film, Endless Poetry, through Kickstarter. We reported about Jodorowsky's Kickstarter campaign ...

It's a Gendy Tartakovsky kind of day evidently. The awesome animation director was all set and very excited to direct Sony's animated Popeye movie even to the point of putting together a fantastic animation test, but it ...

After Harrison Ford told Ridley Scott the Blade Runner 2 script was the best thing he's ever read, it appears he's finally signed on for the sequel. And now that the ball's rolling, Alcon Entertainment has a director in talks...

Alejandro Jodorowsky, the legendary cult filmmaker behind El Topo, The Holy Mountain, and Santa Sangre, is turning to fans to help fund his latest film, Endless Poetry (Poesía Sin Fin). Jodorowsky turned to crowdfundin...

If you're a highly celebrated director working on a beloved genre franchise, posting illusive concept art on Instagram seems to be the latest trend.  Just a few months after District 9 director Neill Blomkamp posted his ...

Awesome news for awesome people here: the guys behind The Guest and You're Next, Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett, are returning with a new film called The Woods. If you haven't seen their previous...

It appears that basically being the architect for an entire cinematic universe is a bit time consuming and exhausting. Joss Whedon is currently wrapping up Avengers: Age of Ultron, and he's pretty sure he will not be returnin...

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...

Consider me a bit more interested in Snow White and the Huntsman And Their Sequel. First of all, this story allows me to revive one of my favorite headers, and secondly, everything but Kristen Stewart was good in the first fi...

UPDATE: Speaking with Collider, Shane Black considers his upcoming Predator as more of a sequel than a reboot:  As far as Fred and I are concerned anyway,” Black said, adding “Why start over, when you’...

WarGames never really stood out to me when I originally saw it back in the day, but its a considered a classic and any 80s classic that exists must get a remake. Thus we've had a new one on the dock for a few years now. ...
