Taxi Driver will roll back into theaters for 40th anniversary

Are you acknowledging me? There’s no one else in the general vicinity, so you must be referring to only me. What do you think of my Robert De Niro impression? I don’t break it out often, only on special occasions like this. Oh, why is it a special occasion, you ask? Well, considering you read the headline you must already have an idea, but in case you clicked this by...

Paul Schrader to direct First Reformed with Ethan Hawke & Amanda Seyfried

I like Paul Schrader . Even if he never made another movie ever, he'd still be (rightfully) heralded for his work as the screenwriter for  Martin Scorsese 's TAXI DRIVER alone. But he continued with more classic collaborations with Scorsese (like RAGING BULL and LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST), as well as his own directorial efforts like HARDCORE and AMERICAN GIGALO. ...

Jerry Bruckheimer adapting sexual thriller American Gigolo as a TV series

Despite a weak run of recent films (THE CANYONS, DYING OF THE LIGHT, DOMINION: PREQUEL TO THE EXORCIST), Paul Schrader is still the guy who wrote TAXI DRIVER and RAGING BULL. Amongst his better films as director, AMERICAN GIGOLO stands out. The 1980 film has had a lasting impact on films and now looks to be on the cusp of being a part of pop culture yet again. Jerry Bruckheimer, who...

Schrader, Refn, Cage and Yelchin protest Dying of the Light edits

Yesterday the first trailer was released for Paul Schrader 's DYING OF THE LIGHT, and it actually looks like it might be a decent thriller. But the director isn't happy about losing control over the final cut, and stars Nicolas Cage and Anton Yelchin , and executive producer Nicolas Winding Refn have joined "Team Schrader" as well.

Nicolas Cage fights for revenge in the trailer for Dying of the Light

For most people these days, a new Nicolas Cage movie is grounds for immediate ignorance. The guy has turned in only a few decent performances (JOE is actually the only one that comes to mind) with the rest being pure, unadulterated crap. Still, the prospect of a movie written and directed by Paul Schrader (TAXI DRIVER, RAGING BULL) and producer by Nicolas Winding Refn is enticing...

Here's the trailer for The Bronx Bull, the unofficial sequel to Raging Bull

Two years after it began production as RAGING BULL II and being forced to change it's title to THE BRONX BULL, the sequel/prequel/remake to Martin Scorsese 's classic boxing drama has released a trailer. With a pretty good cast including William Forsythe , Joe Ma ntegna , Paul Sorvino , Penelope Ann Miller , and Natasha Henstridge , THE BRONX BULL looks every bit the low...

Lindsay Lohan may have killed director Paul Schrader's career with her behavior shooting The Canyons

At this point in her "career", I am unsure why we even pay attention to Lindsay Lohan . She is the epitome of the Hollywood horror story going from child star to superstar to fading star in just about a decade. I do not wish death on anyone, but Lohan is clearly heading for Corey Haim territory. Her latest project, THE CANYONS, was looking like a can't miss project with iconic...
