After all these years Ken Russell's The Devils gets uncut release on Shudder

Ken Russell 's epic 1971 historical drama horror film THE DEVILS has reached almost mythic status among cinephiles. It received an X-Rating upon release, and was severely cut down (from 117 minutes to 103 minutes), as well as being buried by Warner Bros. The film dealt with themes of religious persecution and hypocrisy, which is said to be the main reason for its...

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. ...

New HBO series The Young Pope starring Jude Law releases new trailer

  More than a little disappointed that YOUNG POPE isn't about a teenage Pope with sunglasses, a backwards hat, and EXXXTREME views on Catholic dogma, but damn, this looks good! Then again, it  is  HBO, home of GAME OF THRONES, SOPRANOS, and...VINYL? JOHN FROM CINCINATTI? Okay, maybe they're not all home runs, but their...

Robert Redford to play Oral Roberts in Jonathan Demme's Come Sunday

At age 77, Robert Redford is enjoying a career resurgence thanks to acclaimed roles in the virtually dialogue free ALL IS LOST and the villainous turn as Alexander Pierce in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER. With those under his belt, Redford may be close to embarking on another unique role for his acting career: playing a preacher. The Hollywood Reporter says Redford is in...

Waterworld director Kevin Reynolds to helm Gladiator-style Jesus Christ movie, Resurrection

Kevin Reynolds is best known for directing the epic disaster WATERWORLD starring Kevin Costner which sent him into filmmaking purgatory for quite some time. It was not until last year's History mini-series HATFIELDS & MCCOYS, also starring Costner, that he started getting some more projects. The next film the veteran director is attaching himself to is a religious drama that takes a...

The sequel to The Bible is coming to NBC

I couldn't think of a witty joke title for the sequel to History's mini-series THE BIBLE. I considered BIBLE 2: CHRISTIAN BOOGALOO, BIBLE 2: JUDGEMENT DAY, or even THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD. But, all of those are a little offensive so we will go with the real title: A.D.: BEYOND THE BIBLE. The Mark Burnett-produced mini-series had huge ratings (13 million viewers) and NBC sorely...
