Say what you will about Fifty Shades Of Grey, but if the film can gross a worldwide total of $571 million against a budget of $40 million and be nominated for one Academy Award, all the while being critically panned, well it must be doing something right. Granted, I wasn’t a huge fan of the film as a whole, but there were some interesting shots and lighting selections that caught my eye, and no, none of those involved the more “intimate” scenes.
So with its box office success and huge fanbase, there are many who are interested in seeing what could happen in its sequel, Fifty Shades Darker. And now Universal is giving you a sneak peek at what to expect from it. Check it out the teaser to the trailer here below.
A movie adaptation of Boston Strong, a book about the Boston Marathon bombings and manhunt that followed, was first announced back in July of 2013. Now comes word that Massachusetts native Casey Affleck is set to star in and produce the movie.
The book is written by Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge, and the rights to adapt it were optioned by The Fighter writers Eric Johnson and Paul Tamasy, who penned the spec script.
You knew it was only a matter of time before this happened. Screenwriters Eric Johnson and Paul Tamasay have optioned the rights to Boston Strong, an upcoming book by true crime author Casey Sherman and Boston Herald reporter Dave Wedge that covers the Boston Marathon bombings that took place on April 15th of this year, the city of Boston’s reaction to the tragedy, and the manhunt to find the brothers who were responsible for it.
The book isn’t due out until sometime next year, but as we’ve seen happening more and more often lately, Hollywood isn’t fond of waiting around decades to make movies about significant news stories anymore.
