'Little Miss Sunshine' directors in talks to adapt 'Silver Linings Playbook' author's latest novel

Nearly one year after DreamWorks acquired the rights to Silver Linings Playbook author Matthew Quick’s manuscript The Good Luck of Right Now, the studio is in negotiations with Little Miss Sunshine directing team Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris to head up the adaptation. Variety first reported the news.

The story follows a middle-aged man who has always lived with his mother. When she dies, he and a group of fellow outsiders — a librarian, her vulgar brother, and an ex-priest — head to Canada. On the way they form a family of sorts. Oh, and it’s all told through a series of letters written to Richard Gere. Yep, that Richard Gere.

DreamWorks acquires Catholic priest sex scandal movie

In 2001, reporters at the Boston Globe began investigating and reporting on the Catholic Church’s history of covering up sexual abuse perpetrated by priests in Massachusetts. Their tireless work earned the paper a Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 2003 — and ten years later, the rights to their story have been acquired by DreamWorks Studios and Participant Media.

Win Win director (and Boston University graduate) Tom McCarthy has signed on to direct the movie; he’ll also co-write the script with Josh Singer, a veteran TV writer who also penned DreamWorks’s upcoming Wikileaks drama The Fifth Estate. This will be the sixth collaboration for Participant and DreamWorks; the companies have previously partnered on The Fifth Estate, Lincoln, The Help, The Kite Runner, and The Soloist.

SHADOW-BONE_240.jpg

DreamWorks has picked up the movie rights to Leigh Bardugo’s bestseller Shadow and Bone, about an orphan girl whose ability to harness a rare magic makes her one of her nation’s most coveted warriors.

Holly Bario, DreamWorks’ president of production, will announce the acquisition later today, and although every studio would like to grab a fresh YA book series in the hope that it can be turned into the next Harry Potter-style film franchise, not every film has the actual producer of the Potter movies overseeing it.

Shadow and Bone would be the exception.

Santa, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, and more in 'Rise of the Guardians' character posters

Santa Claus has graced the silver screen in countless holiday movies, and this November, he’s back again. But this time, in DreamWorks Animation’s Rise of the Guardians, he’s joined by a crew of other creatures that accompany the visions of sugar plums in children’s heads. Today Paramount, which is distributing the film, released a series of character posters featuring a formidable Easter Bunny, a birdlike Tooth Fairy and four other characters. In the film, these classic characters are all known by nicknames — Santa is North, the Easter Bunny is E. Aster Bunnymund — but on the posters, they went with the better-known names, with the exception of Pitch, the Boogeyman-inspired nightmare-bringer antagonist of the film.

The movie comes from the mind of the man who won this year’s Oscar for best animated short, William Joyce (The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore). He penned the Guardians screenplay and the children’s book series from which it is adapted.

You'd better watch out for DreamWorks Animation's 'Rise of the Guardians' -- NEW PICS & TRAILER

Have you ever believed in something so strongly that you made it real?

William Joyce definitely has.

The artist and storyteller, who wrote the books Dinosaur Bob and George Shrinks and did character design for the movies Toy Story and Robots, wanted his daughter, Mary Katherine, and son, Jack, to have no shadow of doubt that Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy were real. So he began planting evidence — like a bad cop, or maybe the world’s best dad.

Those efforts have led to a series of books and an upcoming 3-D film from DreamWorks Animation, Rise of the Guardians, in which tough-as-nails versions of childhood icons join forces to combat a Boogeyman named Pitch.

With a new trailer showing off the Nov. 21 movie, Joyce takes a deep dive with EW on the story behind his backstories.

'Madagascar 3' trailer: It's a circus! -- VIDEO

This may seem like a bit of a digression, but when the first Madagascar came out in 2005, my sister happened to be living on the island nation off the southeast African coast. Suffice it to say, other than the presence of lemurs, the movie did not exactly have a great deal in common with its namesake. I know, I know. It’s a cartoon. It shouldn’t.

But that brings me to the new trailer for Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, which depicts our beloved lost foursome — Alex the lion (Ben Stiller), Marty the zebra (Chris Rock), Gloria the hippo (Jada Pinkett Smith), and Melman the giraffe (David Schwimmer) — on the lam in Europe as part of a traveling circus. Sight gags featuring Marty’s “circus afro,” Melman’s attempt a high-wire act, and lady bears riding tiny tricycles abound, set in comparatively accurate portrayals of Monte Carlo, Rome, and the Swiss Alps. So not to put too fine a point on it, but why is this franchise still called Madagascar?

I know, I know. It’s cartoon.

'Rise of the Guardians' reveals warrior versions of Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, and Boogeyman

DreamWorks Animation previewed the first footage from its upcoming adventure saga Rise of the Guardians on Wednesday with the most detailed look so far at the movie’s take on some beloved childhood myths.

Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, the Sandman …

Anyone who grew up hearing stories of these figures can conjure an image of them, but the animated feature debuting Nov. 21 this year fuses those kindly characters with a warrior mythology. They don’t just bring candy, presents, and dreams; they are relentless protectors of innocence and imagination locked in an ongoing war against fear itself.

The movie is based on the new series of books from writer and artist William Joyce (a recent Oscar-winner for The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.)

“If you haven’t met Bill, he’s somebody who really, really loves and celebrates the holidays full out, all the time, not just the biggies,” says Bill Damaschke, DreamWorks Animation’s Chief Creative Officer “He’s someone who has an Arbor Day party at his house.” READ FULL STORY
