‘Jurassic World’ Scribe To Polish ‘Kong: Skull Island’ Script
  |  @   |  

It is only a matter of weeks before Legendary’s King Kong-prequel Skull Island, starring Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson, starts to film, but not before a final script is turned in. This isn’t anything new, as scripts are constantly being rewritten in order to perfect the narrative, and now Universal is doing an in-house hire before the script can be finalized. According to a new report, Jurassic World co-writer Derek Connolly has been tapped to polish the script.

Movie Review: Selma
  |  @   |  

Selma
Director: Ava DuVernay
Screenwriter: Paul Webb
Cast: David Oyelowo, Tom Wilkinson, Carmen Ejogo, Tim Roth, Oprah Winfrey, Common, Lorraine Toussaint, Wendell Pierce
Paramount Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 127 Minutes
Release Date: January 9, 2015

Directed by Ava DuVernay (Middle of Nowhere, I Will Follow), Selma is the story of a movement. The film chronicles the explosive three-month period in 1965 when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (David Oyelowo) led a campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition. The march from Selma to Montgomery culminated in President Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement.

Selma isn’t the first film about the civil rights movement, nor is it the first to feature Dr. King. What makes DuVernay’s film special, however, is that it doesn’t depend on the stereotypical white savior to rescue people of color from their plight. Films like Mississippi Burning, Ghosts of Mississippi, and To Kill a Mockingbird explore segregation, racism, and injustice for African Americans, but always with the help of an idealistic white person.
