News On Director Quentin Tarantino’s Upcoming Western ‘The Hateful Eight’

The first poster for Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming western The Hateful Eight.

Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino went through a pretty big hassle some months back when the script to his upcoming Western, The Hateful Eight, was leaked online, but production seems to be going on without any disturbances and excitement is now buzzing around Hollywood about the new footage Tarantino displayed at the Cine Gear Expo last week using 70mm camera lenses. Tarantino and cinematographer Robert Richardson (Inglorious Basterds, Shutter Island) wanted to present Hateful Eight in 2.78:1 ratio, and so have been working with older Panavision lenses to update the equipment to use on the film, and a total of 50 cinemas across the country are set to be fitted with the special lenses to display the film upon its release. The hope from Tarantino’s view is that the display will bring movie-goers back to the cinema for the visual experience that can’t be duplicated in a home theater system or any other setting. Principle photography is currently underway in Colorado, the story centered on a group of bounty hunters who become isolated in a winter-storm in post-Civil War Wyoming and must survive the weather, and each other. Appearing in the film are Tarantino veterans Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction, Django Unchained), Tim Roth (Reservoir Dogs, The Incredible Hulk), and Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill: Volume 2), plus Kurt Russell (The Thing, Grindhouse), Walton Goggins (The Shield, Sons of Anarchy), Jennifer Jason Leigh (Road to Perdition, The Machinist), and Oscar-winner Bruce Dern (Monster, Nebraska). No official US release date has yet been scheduled, but we should see a trailer out relatively soon. Stay tuned!

Ava DuVernay To Direct Tim Roth, Tom Wilkinson, And David Oyelowo In Civil Rights Drama ‘Selma’

Paramount Pictures has found a replacement director for their Civil Rights drama Selma after Lee Daniels (The Butler, Precious) backed away from the project. Ava DuVernay, who has served as publicity specialist on projects like The Help, Rush Hour 3, and Spider-Man 2, has taken the job after just directing her own episode of Scandal. The film revolves around the “Bloody Sunday” civil rights marches that happened in Selma and Montgomery, Alabama in 1965 and has Tim Roth (Reservoir Dogs, The Incredible Hulk) set to star as Senator George Wallace, Tom Wilkinson (The Patriot, Michael Clayton) as President Lyndon Johnson, and David Oyelowo (The Last King of Scotland, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Senator George Wallace is famous for his extreme opposition to banishing segregation in the United States; he famously stood in front of the doors at the University of Alabama in an effort to block newly admitted black students from entering, and when the Selma marches began the politician ordered state troopers to stop the first waves of marchers by beating them, stirring national attention and building great support for desegregation. No word yet on when this one is expected to hit theaters, but we’ll keep you informed.

Andy Serkis And Original Hulk Actor Lou Ferrigno Lending A Hand In ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’

With production on The Avengers: Age of Ultron currently in full speed, fans are growing more and more eager to see the sequel to one of the most anticipated comic movies ever. Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, and Mark Ruffalo are all reprising their comic hero counterparts for the Age of Ultron, which is once again being written and directed by Joss Whedon (Toy Story, Alien: Resurrection). Along with other supporting cast members like Samuel L. Jackson and Don Cheadle, actor Mark Ruffalo, who is reprising the role of Hulk, will be receiving some help on his character from actors Lou Ferrigno and Andy Serkis. Ferrigno, if you are not aware, portrayed the Hulk in the 1970s TV series The Incredible Hulk, and Serkis is the experienced mime-actor behind Gollum in The Lord of the Rings and Caesar in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Ferrigno will provide some voice-overs for the Hulk when he is big and green, and Serkis will be coaching Ruffalo with some motion-capture techniques for the new movie. Age of Ultron is scheduled for release in May 2015, so we’ll have to wait to see the two actors’ contributions, but it will most likely be worth it.
