The more projects Paul King takes on, the less likely it looks like he will ever direct Paddington 3. As unfortunate as that news is, King’s ability to bring “magical ideas to explore human emotions” will live on in other films.
Now the Paddington director will be at the helm of a new film for Fox Searchlight. According to new reports, King will be behind the lens for Time’s Fool, an adaptation of Glyn Maxwell‘s novel Time’s Fool: A Tale in Verse. More on the report, below.
The Old Man and the Gun

Writer: David Lowery

Distributor: Fox Searchlight Pictures
Rated PG-13 | Minutes: 93

Effective storytelling is something that is hard to come by, but David Lowery‘s The Old Man and the Gun does it so well, making the characters in the film storytellers who tell a mostly true story about wild and romantic tales of charming bank robberies and fascinating jailbreaks. It is not only a love letter to Robert Redford‘s career, it is also a terrific capper for the legendary actor who will be leaving the acting game on a very high note.
The Old Man and the Gun brings out the very best in Redford by letting him be himself: a charismatic, charming, warm, gentleman who loves what he does and does what he loves. Surrounded by a terrific supporting cast that consists of Sissy Spacek, Casey Affleck, Tom Waits, Tika Sumpter, and Danny Glover, Lowery’s latest effort is a nostalgic reminder of what makes character-driven stories so captivating and why we go to the movies. Check out my full review below.
After giving Fox Searchlight Pictures an Academy Award for Best Picture for The Shape of Water, the studio is extending their working relationship with Guillermo del Toro by signing him to a brand new deal.
Del Toro will now oversee a yet-to-be-named label that sees him writing, producing, and directing horror films in the sci-fi and fantasy genres. Said films will be financed, marketed, and distributed by Fox Searchlight Pictures. More on the story below.
