The decision to close the company ImageMovers, owned by Robert Zemeckis, Disney Studio took in March of last year. A year later, Disney fulfilled its promise, and the director was on the street. But this week ImageMovers has been picked up with the studio Universal.
Terms of Universal and Zemeckis deal differs from the collaboration with Disney. The contract for two years provides a so-called first look - on all the projects of director. In addition, Universal is not going to spend money to build the pavilion like the one that was previously available to the director and used to work on the films using the technology of motion capture.
According to the contract with Universal, Robert Zemeckis will have to develop not only animated, but artistic feature films. This means that some "Polar Express" director did not get off. There are no units for the project work will not be built.
Now Zemeckis producing a picture of "How to survive the onslaught of garden gnomes" for Sony Pictures Animation, but the fate befall his remake of "Yellow Submarine" is not yet known.
Moving of ImageMovers to Universal - a strange move for a studio that has a problem with the box office hits. Everyone remembers the attachment to the format of Zemeckis and 3D animation using motion capture. These projects do not bring profit to the creators. Especially loud fell cartoon "The Mystery of the Red Planet" filmed over 150 million and has earned a worldwide box 38.9 million dollars. After leaving Disney with Zemeckis, virtually every Hollywood studio asked director to shoot feature films. One of the projects can be a movie "Flight" with Denzel Washington, but with the revival of ImageMovers things can change.
Creative duo of brothers Hughes somehow quietly disintegrated: Albert Hughes offered to shoot, "Akira" and Allen Hughes - a political drama "Broken City" with Mark Wahlberg. However, Albert plans have changed. The director left the film version of anime and looked closely at the draft of Motor City, where the main role proposed to Chris Evans.
Departing from the project "Akira," Albert Hughes stayed with the studio Warner on good terms. Moreover, the studio assured him employment in another projects, which seems to be and the Motor City.
Chris Evans can play a small rascal, who, being substituted, gets into the jail. Coming from it, he would take revenge on his oppressors. It would seem a trivial subject. But why did the script of Chad St. John appear in the famous "Black List" of best non-released scenarios of 2009? The thing is that the protagonist of the film says only one replica. Moreover, in all scenarios there is only one replica.
In our days, to shoot a silent film in the Hollywood is a real suicide. Some time ago the Coen brothers were trying to break through a silent film about World War II, but failed, despite the consent of Brad Pitt filming at them.
But at this year's Cannes Film Festival has done a lot of noise and black and white silent film "Artist". Jean Dujardin won award for best actor, critics were ecstatic, Harvey Weinstein bought the rights to immediately release the picture in the U.S. It is possible that the script of Motor City has been taken from the shelf on the wave of interest in the film of Michel Hazanavichusa.
The film produces Joel Silver, who will not give up the ability to find future hits. Chris Evans after the release of "The First Avenger" has proved that he can make on his shoulders the entire movie, even if one-third of these pictures are narrow shoulders. But if he refuses, there are already some candidates to replace: Jeremy Renner and Joel Edgerton.
In any case, Hughes has accepted the offer to film. Work will begin in early January. Whether Evans will accept the project or not we will get to know soon.
Given that the classical image of Snow White is still connected with the Walt Disney film, the long reluctance of studios to take on the game version of the story of the girl, the evil queen and the Seven Dwarfs caused at least puzzling. Now Disney shook off the dust from the project about Snow White and the Seven Shaolin monks, renamed it and changed the concept.
The project, formerly known as "Snow White and the Seven", was known from 2002. Some time ago to it was assigned director of the thriller "I - a legend" Francis Lawrence. But since then much water has flowed, Lawrence took "Water for Elephants," a story about a girl and seven Shaolin monks seem to have forgotten.
Now, when studios Universal and Relativity raced off their version of "Snow White", Disney came to its senses. The script for "Snow White and the Seven", which put a number of famous writers' hands up to the writer Michael Chabona, got down from the shelf and handed over to the young visionary Michael Gracie.
Gracie was an animator in the company Animal Logic, which worked on the cartoon "Happy Feet", and then teamed up with colleague Pete Commins, special effects specialist, founded the company Partizan Lab, and went to shoot commercials. One of them, you know very well:
The film, with which Michael Gracie debuts in cinema, will be called "The Order of the Seven". From the stories about Snow White will be only a girl and the number of her defenders. The action will be transferred to China of the 19th century, however, seven characters will be recruited from around the world.
A team of soldiers belonging to an ancient order, meets fugitive from England, pursued by an ancient evil. Warriors no longer follow the rules of their order, so that the meeting with the evil will become for them a kind of redemption. By the way, each character will have his own unique fighting style. Michael is a wonderful dancer and choreographer, so he will put the stage of fighting.
In the near future Gracie will start working on storyboards and design of the film. Shooting will begin next year.
Studio Paramount, whose contract to release the films of DreamWorks Animation production ends in 2012, proposed to continue the cooperation for another year. DWA Head Jeffrey Katzenberg has refused. Paramount said about organization of their animation studio.
The relationship between the studios has relentlessly gone to its logical conclusion. The last straw was a sequel fees of "Kung Fu Panda" - a picture that brings together in worldwide box office of over 600 million dollars, but, obviously, DreamWorks hoped for more.
Paramount offered to extend the contract until 2013 and produce an animated film unit DreamWorks, getting paid for it 8 percent of the fees. DWA wants to pay for the release of their paintings less than, well, Paramount, ideally, would like to receive the same release anymore. There is a divergence of interests.
The proposal to continue the cooperation received from Paramount some time ago, but Jeffrey Katzenberg, head of the DWA, according to insiders, was adamant. Although, frankly, obvious alternative for Paramount to release DreamWorks Animation films on the horizon is not visible.
Meanwhile, in early July, Paramount announced about the creation of its own studio producing animation. The first swallow the studio to work with animation, became film "Rango," Gore Verbinski. Western with a budget of 135 million at the box office proved to be unimportant, having collected more than $ 240 million, but received praise of the most reputable American critics.
Paramount hasn’t doubts in success of their own enterprise.

Jolie, who still appear in the image of Egyptian queen in the new version of "Cleopatra" has shared her views on life and work.
"You were attracted to certain roles because they address the issues of life, love or freedom - she says. - You ask yourself these questions, while growing up. Am I strong enough? Adequate enough? Do I understand myself?"
Angelina has already understood for herself.
"I was older and I understand who I am. And I have much less interested in characters who help me find an answer to a question who I am in position to respond as a woman and as an adult. "

On the panel, devoted to "The Adventures of Tintin" Steven Spielberg has officially announced the launch of the "Jurassic Park 4". For director has joined also Peter Jackson and together they talked about working on the "Tintin" and answered questions from fans.
At 11 am, when in Los Angeles was still a Friday, the scene of the hall to overflowing potted H Exhibition Center of San Diego with a capacity of over 6,500 people came out. We could write something about the smiling elderly grandfather, but who needs the extra words? Spielberg won the convention Inkpot award for achievement in cinematography.
"Without you I would not be here today - said director, welcoming the audience, applause broke out. - All my life I was a kid. Thank you for staying in children. You will be such during all your life. It seems to me we ought to sit in the room with you. "
Then the conversation turned to "Tintin."
"How many of you read comic books about him?" - asked Spielberg. Only a few people in the room responded positively.
"Well, then it would be much easier!"
Director said that the first learned about Tintin in 1981, read a review of French criticism, comparing it to "Indiana Jones" from Belgian comic Erzhe. Spielberg has found his work, and instantly fell in love. In a sense, a young journalist Tintin really looked like Indiana Jones, he also managed constantly to get into the exciting and dangerous adventures.
Film rights to the comic Spielberg bought back in 1983, but for some reason he decided to make a movie about Tintin just now, and even by the technique of motion capture?
"I had to decide to shoot a feature film with the computer or take a dog in fully animated picture," - explained the master.
Yet the main reason for a "Tintin" was chosen as the animation, it was Spielberg's desire to repeat the exact pattern of Erzhe.
"I do not want the audience to say, "Yeah, not bad, but it does not look like Erzhe." I wanted the characters were a hair's breadth, as in the comics. " "But we tried to add most realistic textures to bring the movie to the game"- added Jackson.
This means that the skin pores are heroes, freckles, scars - details of the most realistic, but the characters are similar to the pattern of Erzhe.
Work on the "Tintin" Spielberg compared with shooting on 8-millimeter camera, because he was always in the hands of the controller, like a gamepad on Playstation. In this case the director saw the reality of the actors on the screen and moving computer characters. Spielberg likened the process of shooting with the drawing, since the director is able to monitor personally many aspects, such as: lighting, play, costumes and more. Continuing the story of the impact on the film, Spielberg said he was inspired by many adventure films, as well as silent films with Buster Keaton.
The philosophy of producing on Spielberg: "I hire a director and am going away."
The most pleasant memories of producing the project with Steven stayed to work on the trilogy "Back to the Future." Does Peter Jackson will return to the horror? Someday in the future he would return.
It turned out that the information on "Jurassic Park 4", which took place in the news in mid-June - the truth. Spielberg said: "We have a story, which I am very pleased to inform you. Hopefully, we'll shoot the fourth film in the next two to three years. "
The last question was from a guy in a shirt that says "If possible, I'd like to meet with Steven Spielberg, shake his hand and say "Thank you very much". Seeing the sign, the director invited the boy to climb on stage and took a picture of his shirt. The scene was photographed by Peter Jackson. The guy is still Spielberg asked: Will he continue to shoot on film? The director responded that "Tintin" had to take off a digit, and then of course he will return to the film.
"The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn 3D" will be released in cinemas in November 3.
Tireless director Robert Rodriguez has obtained one more project. He said about the purchase of film rights to the series of journals Heavy Metal. At the same time Robert did not forget about the sequel to "Sin City" and the extensions of the adventures of the Machete. One of them will take place in the cosmos.
The last time talking about the production on the film "Heavy metal" came in 2008. Then the project was in the hands of David Fincher, and he was planning to make an animation picture, divided into several parts. Each part had to take apart a guest director. Among the likely names were called Zack Snyder and James Cameron.
One of the directors, approved by Fincher, was Kevin Eastman. It was he who got in touch with Rodriguez after the rights to stage "Heavy metal" in Fincher expired. A curious coincidence that just at that time, Robert began to find out who owns those rights. At the convention on Thursday, Rodriguez talked about how long he loves these magazines and still holds tons of titles of "Metal" in his studio. The director admitted that he owes his inspiration to them, "Sin City" novels by Frank Miller and Robert E. Howard. Rodriguez said at the same time that his desire to shoot "Barbarella" was partly motivated by the desire to approach as close to "Heavy metal" as possible.
What form will take the project with his participation, Rodriguez does not know yet, but the format of the anthology with different directors has always liked him. Robert offered to visitors of the convention to shoot movies in the style of "heavy metal" themselves and send him - just in time people have send him trailers to the project "Grindhouse".
As for "Sin City 2," then, according to the director, he will either make a movie this year or never.
"As soon as the script is ready, we begin to shoot. If the script was ready right now, we'd already picked up the actors. We must once again go through the script. As will be ready - we shoot. We do not hold, except for work on story and characters. Viewers have long been waiting for the movie, so we can’t spoil the pot".
The second film will be called "A Dame To Kill For", it will include the eponymous subject of comics and has two new stories, which are specially composed by Frank Miller.
In addition, Robert wants to shoot "Sin City 2" in 3D, but swears that he will apply the technology in such a way as to him no one had ever done before.
With the success of "Machete" Rodriguez on DVD starts to work immediately by two sequels: "Machete kills" and "Machete kills again." And in the third film director is going to launch a hero Danny Trejo in the cosmos. Opinion of the actor in this regard is not yet known.
