We're not surprised that the studios would want another Harry Potter star for a horror movie! DanRad's The Woman in Black overperformed at the box office by A LOT!

We've just learned that the Weinstein Company may be moving forward with their Thanksgiving-themed horror movie Kristy…AND we're hearing that they want Emma Watson for the lead role!

Here's how the project is being described:

Madonna's W.E. Film Gets U.S. Distribution!

Filed under: MadonnaFilm FlickersBusiness Blitz

madonnas movie gets us distribution

It's on!

We are VERY excited to report that Madonna's U.S. directorial debut W.E. has been picked up by The Weinstein Company for domestic distribution.

As a reminder, the film's story is about "a modern-day New Yorker obsessed with the royal love story between Britain’s King Edward VIII and American divorcee Wallis Simpson."

The film was directed/co-written by Madge, and it stars Limitless' Abbie Cornish, Secret Diary of a Call Girl's James D'Arcy, and Never Let Me Go's Andrea Riseborough.

Here's what Madonna had to say about the distribution deal:

"W.E. is about the nature of true love, and the sacrifices and compromises that are often made. I've wanted to tell this story for a very long time, and bringing it to life has been a great adventure for me. I'm looking forward to working with Harvey and The Weinstein Company on this film."

Congratulations, Madge! As we've said before, we cannot wait to see this!

Are U pumped to hear that Madonna's W.E. is getting a U.S. release? Will U check it out when it hits theaters?

Yes! Scream 5 Is A Go!

Filed under: Film Flickers

After the ending of the last one - which was pretty kick-ass, might we add - we have no idea how they could continue the series, but hey! If it doesn't suck, we're all for it!

Despite Scream 4 not doing as well financially as anyone had hoped in the US, The Weinstein Company chief Harvey Weinstein recently revealed the horror/comedy sequel has done so well overseas that a Scream 5 will almost certainly happen, and director Wes Craven will most likely be involved!

He explains:

"I'm sure [director Wes Craven is] going to do a sequel, I'm sure he's going to do a sequel. Foreign [sales] are so strong that we'll do over $100 million worldwide. It's at $90 now, with about five or six major countries to go and a lot of small ones. We'll probably do $110 million. I wish it would have been better domestically. But it's not the worst thing in the world that's ever happened. When I had my first conversation with [screenwriter Kevin Williamson] about this whole thing, he had an idea for a new trilogy. And I think that was Bob Weinstein's thing also about waiting so long — if there were to be a 'Scream 4,' there would also probably be a 'Scream 5' and a 'Scream 6' sooner or later so we could construct a new trilogy that kind of stood on its own."

Wow! We're certainly more than curious to see how they can manage to continue the story after Scream 4 - it seemed pretty nicely wrapped up!

But we're certain if anyone can do it, it's Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven!

We're ready to see what you have up your sleeves, guys!

What do U think? Do U want to see a Scream 5?

Weinstein VS Relativity: When Studios Get Catty!

Filed under: Film Flickers

relativity-weinstein-company.jpg

Meow!

Two of the biggest movie-making companies in the biz are at each other's throats over the distribution rights to the movie The Crow.

Basically, Relativity owns the rights to the movie right now, but agreed to hand over the rights to the Weinstein Company so they could distribute it. The Weinstein Company claims Relativity reneged on the deal because they are still upset over what they call the "mishandling" of Nine, the last flick the two companies collaborated on.

So, Relativity is asking for $20 million in damages from Weinstein for Nine because it performed so poorly and they are refusing to hand over The Crow, claiming the studios lacks the $70 million necessary to release the film.

And what does the Weinstein Company have to say about this whole mess? Let's check in with their lawyer Bert Fields and see! Bert says:

"The allegations of the motion are absolute garbage. This claim was about a totally different picture. It should have been made at the time of 'Nine,' not now because they broke the contract on 'The Crow.' It's total hogwash, and I cant wait to get Mr. Kavanaugh on the witness stand."

Someone's all fired up!!! The fight is on!!!

But all this fuss over The Crow? Seriously? we know it has a pretty devote following, but c'mon? $70 million???
