Oscar Nominated Screenwriters working on Tupac Shakur’s Biopic

Posted by yoMcLovin on September 1, 2010

Stephen J. Rivele and Chris Wilkinson, the Oscar nominated screenwriters of films like Ali and Nixon, have now agreed to pen Training Day director Antoine Fuqua’s upcoming biopic about the late Tupac Shakur. Although the film’s lead role has yet to be cast, Rivele and Wilkinson revealed that the film will focus primarily on the slain rapper’s final day.

“I knew nothing about [Tupac before]…[but after researching him] it became clear that he was essentially a 19th century Romantic poet who found himself in the 21st century,” said Rivele. “This is the story of an artist whose character is at odds with his medium. He was a really sensitive, very romantic, talented young poet who also could sing, dance, and act. But the realities [of the record industry] were that he had to create this persona of the gangster.” (NYMag.com)

Although the identity of Tupac’s killer has been highly contested in Hip Hop circles, Rivele and Wilkinson say they hope to focus more on the senselessness of the killing itself. Rivele says that he feels Tupac was at the cusp of a transformative period in his life and that his associations with certain people may have led to his downfall.

“He was obviously very angry, and had been subjected to a great deal of violence at home, in the streets and in prison,” said Rivele. “But he was just beginning to shed that anger and look for a purer voice…He was in the process of changing himself, and entering a new phase of his life — essentially a Romantic vision — and had set up a new label, and a new production company to create it. He saw the contradiction between the musical persona of ‘Thug Life,’ and his essential nature as a gentle, sensitive person. And that was partly responsible for his murder: he was not a gangster, but the people around him were. They saw he was going to leave, that they were going to lose him, and so I think they decided to kill him.” (NYMag.com)

The film is expected to begin filming this November.

PW Chats With Idris Elba of The Wire

Posted by yoMcLovin on August 27, 2010

Idris Elba on Takers and life after The Wire.

“If I’m not in the mood, I’m not in the mood. I don’t pretend,” says Idris Elba, shrugging his shoulders. He’s talking about signing autographs, but he might just as well be talking about dutifully enduring the phony intimacy of a roundtable interview, fielding familiar questions from a room full of strangers about a movie he shot almost two years ago.

Anyone who saw Elba’s career-making turn as Stringer Bell on HBO’s The Wire already knows that he’s an imposing fellow. Tall, gruff and all-business in his bearing, this doesn’t seem to be a man who suffers fools gladly. There’s not a lot of enthusiasm in the room for Takers, a Michael Mann knockoff starring Elba, Chris Brown and T.I. as fashion-conscious bank robbers with a distinct straight-to-video whiff that recycles cops-and-robbers clichés for the urban market. (Chris Brown does parkour!)

A brief conversation is peppered with subtle acknowledgements of the film’s shortcomings and swift dismissals of silly queries. He’s friendly and professional, but would obviously rather be somewhere else. “I love heist films, and I wanted to be a part of one. The script was, you know, a good read.”

“The director, John Lussenhop, was really passionate,” Elba continues. “He wanted to see Heat . Like a cool, younger version of Heat. We were told that everyone’s gonna wear suits … Actors! Suits! Good-looking men! That was his whole business. Which was fine, as one of my first jobs when I do a film is I speak to the costume designer. That’s how I define who the person is, I put on the clothes. Then I go to work.”

When told that women in the preview audience squealed aloud during his shirtless scene, Elba is flummoxed. “It’s a compliment, I guess, but what do you say about all that? I don’t know.”

Such intelligent questioning continues when the actor is asked if he became friends with co-star Paul Walker. “Paul and I got on pretty well and had a chemistry that worked. But offscreen? No, I never see the guy. He’s always on a surfboard somewhere.”

If there’s a reason to see Takers, it’s for Elba’s scenes with Marianne Jean-Baptiste. She’s got a few surprisingly moving scenes as the suave bank robber’s troubled, drug-addict sister, temporarily throwing off the movie’s too-cool-for-school vibe and showing a more vulnerable side of Elba’s badass. He perks up and politely takes credit for the subplot.

“The script was in development, and a lot of changes happened after my input. I really wanted that storyline to be an anchor for my character. There had to be something to hang on to. There had to be a reason for why he was trying to get out.

“I thought [that storyline] was quite a departure when I saw the film,” he continued; “all of the sudden you’re in the middle of an EastEnders episode. I think all the characters could have done with a bit of that.”

But how did they get an Oscar nominee like Marianne Jean-Baptiste for a small role in such a testosterone-heavy action picture? Idris Elba smiles. “She wouldn’t have done it if I hadn’t asked her.”

Elba has worked almost nonstop since wrapping Takers, alternating between big-budget Hollywood films (The Losers, Thor) and television series both here (The Office) and abroad (Luther).

“It’s been my existence for ten years now, going back and forth. I’m quite good at doing it. It’s weird, though; in my personal life I can’t really find any anchor because I’m traveling around so much. Where am I living? What accent am I using today?

“I’ve been an actor for a long time, and the next few stages seem to be production, directing and writing. There’s a film I did called Legacy , it’s a very small film. I was the producer and that fulfilled me as an artist. I’m leaning toward producing, because a lot of the roles I’m getting just aren’t exciting.

“Some directors take time with the character, and others take time with the picture. If you get a character-builder, it’s great.”

Kevin Carson (Bow Wow), a young man living in the projects, wins $370 million in a nationwide lottery.

Every year the population of sleepy Lake Victoria explodes from 5,000 to 50,000 for Spring Break, a riot of sun and drunken fun. But this year, there’s something more to worry about than hangovers and complaints from local old timers; A new type of terror is about to be cut loose on Lake Victoria. After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area’s new razor-toothed residents.

Kassie (Jennifer Aniston) is a smart, fun-loving single woman who, despite her slightly neurotic best friend Wally’s (Jason Bateman) objections, decides it’s time to have a baby–even if it means doing it by herself… with a little help from a charming sperm donor. But, unbeknownst to her, Kassie’s plans go awry because of a last-minute switch that isn’t discovered until seven years later when Wally finally gets acquainted with Kassie’s precocious — though slightly neurotic — son.
 

Becca, an anxious, non-vampire teen, is torn between two boys. Before she can choose, Becca must get around her controlling father, who embarrasses Becca by treating her like a child. Meanwhile, Becca’s friends contend with their own romantic issues — all of which collide at the prom.

“Takers” Movie Trailer

Posted by yoMcLovin on August 19, 2010

Directed by John Luessenhop, Takers revolves around a notorious group of criminals (Idris Elba, Paul Walker, T.I.P. Harris, Chris Brown, Hayden Christensen and Michael Ealy) who continue to baffle police by pulling off perfectly executed bank robberies. They are in and out like clockwork, leaving no evidence behind and laying low in between heists. But when they attempt to pull off one last job with more money at stake than ever before, the crew may find their plans interrupted by a hardened detective (Matt Dillion) who is bent on solving the case.

T.I.P Harris stars in this motion picture that he produced, and if your a T.I fan you know he doesn’t let his fans down. This is going to be a movie to remember and a instant classic.
