New Journey Pictures has released the lyrics to a U2-ish-sounding song written for The Gnashing by indie-rock band The National.

 

Spoiler

"Where Will You Go" by The National

 

Where will you go when you die?

Where will you go when you die?

Do you know?

Do you know?

Where will you go when you die?

Where will you go when you die?

Do you know?

Do you know?

We're just a century away from being bodies in graves,

and they tell us to sit down, telling us to behave.

I think it's funny in a way

when they try to rule our fate...

We're just a century away from being bodies in graves,

and they tell us to sit down, telling us to behave.

I think it's funny in a way

when they try to rule our fate...

Which is the right afterlife?

Which is the right afterlife?

Will I go there

when it's my time?

What is the when, where, and why?

What is the when, where, and why?

All the questions

on my mind...

We're just a century away from being bodies in graves,

and they tell us to sit down, telling us to behave.

I think it's funny in a way

when they try to rule our fate...

We're just a century away from being bodies in graves,

and they tell us to sit down, telling us to behave.

I think it's funny in a way

when they try to rule our fate...

When they try to rule our fate...

When they try to rule our fate...

When they try to rule our fate...

When they try to rule our fate...

Phoenix Fire Entertainment brings yet another shake-up surrounding the December Y8 film Dreams, the adaptation of the 2020 video game of the same name.

 

Originally, it was announced that the legendary Steven Spielberg would be responsible for directing this film. However, thanks to a friendly agreement between Phoenix Fire and Lager Pictures, Mr. Spielberg will now have Penpal as his major Y8 directing commitment. Spielberg and Amblin Entertainment remain on as producers on Dreams.

 

More recently, Phoenix Fire announced that Jennifer Yuh Nelson (Spark: Beyond the SkySpark: A Hero's Promise) would direct Dreams. That continues to be the case, as Nelson remains at the helm of... a portion of the film.

 

Phoenix Fire is now making the announcement that Ms. Yuh Nelson will not direct the entirety of the film, directing only two of the five shorts, as well as the prologue of the film. Three other directors have joined in the project to helm the remaining shorts, as the studio and Ms. Yuh Nelson agreed that it would be for the best that certain shorts would be distributed to directors who best fit their specific material.

 

The rundown of the five Dreams shorts, between director and cast, will be as follows:

Jennifer Yuh Nelson will direct the prologue of the film, which will star Michelle Pfeiffer as a doctor who presents to a group of students the machine that will allow for their ideas to be turned into films.

Jake Kasdan (Bad TeacherJumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) will direct Slayer Scrolls, a fantasy action comedy starring Jason Statham as an assassin seeking to slay a dragon. Liam Cunningham, Kristofer Hijvu, Iain De Caestecker and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau will also star.

 

-----

Jennifer Yuh Nelson will also direct A Greasy Meal, an animated sci-fi comedy - the animation being mostly in traditional 2D, but also having 3D elements - starring Lily James and Tiffany Haddish as two friends who eat at a mysterious restaurant, and one of them becomes a brand new person physically. Tara Strong also features.

 

-----

 

Mike Flanagan (Director).jpg'젠틀한 남자' 다니엘 헤니 (1).jpgOlga Kurylenko Berlin 2015.jpg

 

Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Ouija: Origin of Evil, Doctor Sleep) will direct Horror in Chernobyl, a horror thriller starring Daniel Henney as an investigative journalist seeking answers about the disappearance of three people who lived near Pripyat, the infamous city where the 1986 Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant disaster ocurred. Olga Kurylenko will also feature.

 

-----

Jennifer Yuh Nelson will also direct Overdrive, a sci-fi action drama starring Sasha Lane as a woman seeking to avenge her family, targeting the ruthless dictator played by Vera Farmiga.

 

-----

 

Patty Jenkins at the 2018 Comic-Con International.jpgJoana Ribeiro Cannes 2018.jpg

 

And finally, Patty Jenkins (MonsterWonder Woman) will direct Taken by the Rust, a fantasy short with philosophical ambitions starring Joana Ribeiro as a woman who wakes up in a mysterious forest and wanders in its surroundings to figure out where she is.

 

Dreams will be released on December 13th Y8, with the studio hoping that it guarantees at least one week of IMAX theaters as well.

Based on the 2014 novel by Celeste Ng, EINTY follows a Chinese-American family in the 1970s grappling with the disappearance and death of the daughter Lydia. In a twist similar to the one in The Lovely Bones, there's ghostly stuff involved in the story.

Phoenix Fire Entertainment would like to thank its incredible list of filmmakers for its now finished Y8 slate. We hope that you, the filmgoer, are able to enjoy these films as much as possible.

 

Moving towards the future. Y9 is a step away, and we want to make some announcements. We'll start by confirming the release of three previously announced films:

  • the latest by Phoenix Fire Artstyles, Vixen and the Castle of Doom, the sequel to Vixen and the Flaming Feather, co-directed by Gianluigi Toccafondo and Robert Morgan and starring the voice of Katherine Langford, which will take the saga of Vixen forward with a psychedelic trip about the soul-crushing power of guilt and self-pity. To be released in January Y9, either on the MLK 4-day weekend or on the weekend before;
  • the much anticipated Mighty Fall, Alex Hirsch's live-action and animation hybrid space opera starring Olivia Cooke, Finn Wolfhard, Naomi Scott, Christoph Waltz, Emma Thompson and the voices of Bob Bergen, Billy West and Dee Bradley Baker, which will challenge two siblings to find a missing person, in what is set to be the first of a trilogy. To be released on Memorial Day Weekend Y9;
  • the Peter Avanzino-directed adaptation of the Nickelodeon cult cartoon Invader Zim, set to be the first movie by Phoenix Fire Family Animation. Ryan Reynolds leads the voice cast in a movie that, similarly to the show, parodies the slight nature of humanity as it is. The film will be released on September Y9, set to kick off Halloween season.

As far as Alex Graves' MBW2: Carnage Unleashed, the sequel to Y7's Monster Bug Wars, is concerned, we are announcing that it will be delayed until Y10. With the release of The Scorpion Path and The Spider Path this year, both films serving as an experimental setup of sorts to the sequel, we want audiences to have a break from the franchise before we release the sequel.

 

Finally, we are making announcements surrounding the Y9 Film Festival, should Phoenix Fire enter the competition:

  • as far as the in-competition film is concerned, the plans are currently set right now on Sleep Deprivation, a fictional story based on real events, about an American man who was friends with the Portuguese Communist Party in the mid to late 1940's, and was arrested in Lisbon by PIDE, the secret service of the repression-driven nationalist government Estado Novo ("New State"), who would then go on to torture the man through, by other means, extreme use of sleep deprivation. This gut-wrenching political thriller with horror elements is set to explore the influence of the Cold War on anti-humane practices in the West. Sam Mendes (American BeautySkyfall, 1917) is in talks to be the director. This film would likely release in theaters in October Y9;
  • and as far as the out-of-competition film goes, the choice will fall on one of two films. A secondary choice would be Vixen and the Castle of Doom, which, were that to be finalized, would hopefully be the CAYOM Film Festival's first animated film. However, the main choice will probably fall on an untitled thriller directed by Jack Bender (The SopranosGame of ThronesMass Effect: Ascension) and starring an all-star cast featuring, amongst others, Brad Pitt, Emily Blunt, Florence Pugh, Robert De Niro and Meryl Streep, set for a theatrical release on Christmas Y9.

Looking forward to hearing more about Sleep Deprivation. Though maybe a title tweak may be in order as you work on it. Right now it just sounds a little bland.

It's a working title, I'll probably change it :ph34r: But I appreciate it, thank you.

In a shocking turn of events, Endless Animation shakes up its Y10 and Y11 slate.

 

  • Genndy Tartakovsky’s Will You Imagine? has been pushed back to Spring Y11 to further develop the story, moving Jorge R. Guiterrez’s untitled film to Summer Y11.
  • The sci-fi animated musical mockumentary, The Valkyries vs The Galaxy is now moving to 3/27/Y10 with Molly Ostertag (The Owl House) now making her directorial debut alongside Erica Rivinoja (Clone High, Girl’s Trip, Trolls) who joins part of writing team. Dreamcatcher will stay in summer Y10.
  • As for the holiday season of Y10, Gateways 2.0. is being fast tracked. Jennifer Yuh Nelson (Kung Fu Panda 2, Spark: A Hero’s Promise, the upcoming Summer Wars) will now direct the project, with a script from Academy Award winner Pete Docter (Inside Out, To The Moon, Gateways) and Brenda Chapman (Brave, Herestias). McKenna Grace, Donald Glover, and Awkwafina have signed on to return their original roles as new cast members join or in talks of joining as Angelina Jolie has officially signed on as the voice of Piper, Bailee’s long lost mother. More plot details are expected next month but the brief summary is being described as taking place a year after Gateways, as Bailee, Levi, Magi and Stripes have gotten into the groove of their odd nuclear family as things get dicey for stability as a two threats collide: the end of the multiverse which involves the return of Piper in Bailee’s life and the growing love life of Levi.

Due to prior obligations to Alpha Pictures’ upcoming Summer Wars and Endless Animation’s Gateways 2.0, Jennifer Yuh Nelson has left Green Lantern Corps: Evolution. Ava DuVernay (Selma, A Wrinkle in Time, upcoming The New Gods) has signed on to direct the film instead as Nelson’s replacement. Xavier B Irving notes “DuVernay is an extraordinary visionary when it comes to building great characters and providing great entertainment and it’s an honor to have her in the Endless Entertainment family.” Green Lantern Corps: Evolution is still slated for May 2nd, Y9.

Phoenix Fire Entertainment is proudly claiming the film rights to one of entertainment's biggest properties of the moment: Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto series.

 

The franchise was under the co-ownership of O$corp Pictures and Endless Entertainment, but the absence of the former from activity for a number of game years and the latter's amicable agreement in lending Phoenix Fire their portion of the rights, with neither party planning anything GTA related for at least five game years and nothing in their future plans for now, led to this claim.

 

Right now, the plans for a Phoenix Fire-produced GTA film aren't gonna see the light of day until Y10-11 at earliest, but there's already two sets of plans at motion.

 

The first sees an introductory film to the series, appropriately titled Grand Theft Auto. Loosely based on the original 1997 video game of the same name and its 1999 sequel Grand Theft Auto 2, this dark crime thriller dramedy will explore the facets of a psychopath working under the criminal underbelly of a fictionalized version of North America - specifically, Anywhere City, a parody of Detroit, Michigan, and Ludendorff, North Yankton, a take on Fargo, North Dakota. More so, the film will implement new tactics of storytelling that will attempt to be an adaptation of the game's revolutionary open world free-roaming gameplay to the cinematic format. The fascinating yet controversial S. Craig Zehler (Bone Tomahawk, Brawl in Cell Block 99, Dragged Across Concrete) has been tapped to direct, and frequent cast collaborators Vince Vaughn, Jennifer Carpenter and Don Johnson will feature in the film, with no protagonist yet set, but rumors point towards Lucas Hedges.

 

The second film will be titled Welcome to Liberty City. This will be deviated from the story of Grand Theft Auto, but will take place in the same world. It will be the first of a trilogy of films based on Grand Theft Auto IV, a story centered on Niko Bellic, an Eastern European veteran and former human trafficker, coming to Liberty City - the universe's version of New York City - in order to escape his past, chase the so-called American dream and exact revenge on a war traitor. What does it mean to chase the American dream in a modern society, especially from the context of an immigrant with a criminal background? Is the American take on capitalism well balanced and just, or a platform for greedy and corrupt men to exact their hunger for power? Can you truly outrun a tragic past and learn overtime that you do not need to be the person it says you are? These are questions that this trilogy is set out to ask. The film will be helmed by Den skyldige (known in English as The Guilty) director Gustav Möller, who co-pens the script with Jeremy Rush. Mission: Impossible, Ghost Protocol's Vladimir Mashkov is set to star as Niko Bellic, while the ensemble supporting cast for Welcome to Liberty City includes names like Brian O'Halloran, Mahershala Ali, Rosario Dawson, Sarah Polley, David Cross and Tommy Flanagan.

 

Beyond that, a second and third films based on Grand Theft Auto IV will happen. Plans for a film series on Grand Theft Auto V, one of the highest-selling video games ever, are also in the works; while adaptations for other games in the series (particularly Grand Theft Auto IIIGrand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas) are on the table, but far from officially greenlit yet.

Travis Knight has signed on to direct the original sci-fi/fantasy film The Last Beacon: Zealotry of the Miniatures, to be released in Y10. New Journey Pictures deemed it necessary to make this announcement now in order to 'reserve' the director for Y10, so to speak.

A Statement from Blankments Productions

 

We at Blankments Productions are saddened to hear about the passing of Christopher Plummer this past Friday. Undeniably a titan among actors, we had the pleasure of featuring him in roles in Y4's The Dogs of Babel and Y6's Duck Hunt. He will be sorely missed by all of us. Although cast for next year's Duck Hunt: Now Bundled with R.O.B.! to reprise his role as Hogan, he did not complete recording by the time of his passing, and, in respect to him, the role will be recast. The film, scheduled for Thanksgiving Y9, will be dedicated in his honor.

Phoenix Fire Entertainment, further looking ahead to the future, is making some official announcements regarding some of its Y10 slate.

 

First of all, we are officially announcing that Bone Tomahawk, Brawl on Cell Block 99 and Dragged Across Concrete director S. Craig Zehler's Grand Theft Auto will come out on November Y10, and it will star Lucas Hedges, Jaylen Barron and Paul Giamatti in the main roles. Original plans were that Hedges' character would be named Claude, the same name as the playable character from Grand Theft Auto 2 (one of the two games this is based on, alongside the original GTA), but the name "Claude" will be reserved should there ever be a Grand Theft Auto III adaptation. Instead, he will portray Kieran Gallagher, an original character with psychopathic traits who, in order to provide heroin for himself, starts working for Robert "Bubby" Seragliano (Giamatti), the leader of a powerful gang of the vibrant Anywhere City, while his girlfriend Janelle (Barron) works to uncover his secrets. Kieran's actions become increasingly volatile as he explores his inner animal in the city, and Janelle decides to track him down on the same day. As priorly mentioned, Zehler veterans Vince Vaughn, Jennifer Carpenter and Don Johnson will also be in the film, and more casting news are to come in the near future.

 

And secondly, we are also announcing that we are fast-tracking Phoenix Fire Family Animation's Sackboy, the LittleBigPlanet adaptation, to June Y10, Pride Month. Not only that, but we originally announced that Steve Moore, of Open Season fame, was going to be the director of the film. Phoenix Fire still intends on working with Moore on a film for PFFA in the future, with possibility being on that of a sports movie, but Moore is no longer the director of Sackboy. Instead, we are proud to announce that the helming of Sackboy will be in the hands of Mike Owens and Shadi Petosky, the co-creators of the Amazon Prime LGBT cartoon Danger & Eggs. The reason for this shift is because Sackboy will directly deal with LGBTQ+ themes - particularly, the theme of gender-fluidity. Ian Alexander, Brigitte Lundy-Paine and Amandla Stenberg will star in lead voice roles. Steven Universe creator Rebecca Sugar will produce.

 

If you're wondering what happened to another PFFA film that was in the docks before Sackboy, Peter Browngardt's Looney Tunes sci-fi comedy Wabbit Hole, that has been delayed until Y11 at earliest.
