'Oldboy' director Park Chan-wook to direct adaptation of 'Fingersmith'

Park-Chan-wook.jpg

Perhaps best known for his harrowing film Oldboy, Korean director Park Chan-wook has kept busy both at home and abroad. Having directed four other films since his famous 2003 thriller, including his English-language debut with Stoker, Chan-wook is returning home with his latest project.

Chan-wook has chosen to adapt the 2002 novel Fingersmith by Sarah Waters, a Victorian-style crime novel that the director will be putting his own spin on. The London-set novel will be shifted to 20th-century Korea during a period of Japanese rule in Chan-wook’s film, which currently has a Korean title, Agashi. The name translates to “young lady” or “miss” in English—which is fitting, considering the book’s original plot.

Waters’ novel follows the plight of orphan Sue Trinder, who, in the care of Mrs. Sucksby, grows close to a family of thieves living in her adoptive home. Known as fingersmiths, they corral Sue into one of their schemes, asking her to become the maid to the wealthy Maud Lilly in a plot to steal her inheritance. The plan loses its way, however, when Sue begins to fall in love with Lilly.

Agashi is currently in the process of casting, and Chan-wook plans to begin filming in 2015.

Thanks to the difficulty of William Faulkner’s stream-of-consciousness writing, his novel The Sound and the Fury has only seen one major film adaptation, released in 1959. That is, until James Franco decided to take a stab at the perennial high school English-class favorite. Franco’s adaptation, which he directed and also stars in, has a new clip to show fans of Franco and the novel what’s in store.

Sam Claflin chugs a horrifying cocktail in new 'Riot Club' clip

The-Riot-Club.jpg

Hazing is part of any secret college society experience, and it looks like the titular group of Universal Pictures’ The Riot Club is no exception in a new clip released from the film.

In the clip—which, fair warning, may churn a few stomachs—a new initiate of the Riot Club is kidnapped from a quiet study session in the library by a group of club members. Blindfolded and surrounded by the gleeful Rioters, the group forces Alistair Ryle, played by The Hunger Games‘ Sam Claflin, to both gulp down a glass of wine filled with a mixture of bodily fluids and maggots, and then correctly identify the wine’s make and year.

The Riot Club tells the story of two new students at Oxford University with dreams of joining the school’s most exclusive society, the Riot Club, which is modeled after Oxford’s Bullingdon Club. The film is based on Posh, the 2010 play which the film’s screenwriter Laura Wade also wrote.

From An Education director Lone Scherfig, The Riot Club will make its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival before releasing on Sept. 19.

'Life' remembers Ingrid Bergman's landmark career

Cinephiles and casual film fans alike will have some familiarity with Ingrid Bergman’s large body of work. The actress is perhaps most widely remembered for her starring role opposite Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, but Bergman’s more than 40-year career is replete with memorable—and award-winning—roles. On the anniversary of her passing, Life has compiled a gallery of Bergman to celebrate her career.

In tracking Bergman’s time in the spotlight, which included three Academy Awards and appearances in films like For Whom the Bell TollsJoan of Arc, and GaslightLife recalls a 1943 interview with the actress in which she said, “I am an actress and I am interested in acting, not in making money.”

Bergman acted until late in her life, frequently appearing on television and onstage in addition to her work on film. But her time in the spotlight also put her personal life front and center for many of her fans.

Head over to Life‘s remembrance of the actress to learn more about her personal and professional life and see photos of her work.

The Dowdle brothers talk about shooting their horror-thriller 'As Above So Below' in the Paris catacombs

As-above-so-below

Ah, Paris. City of love, romance—and a terrifying network of skull-filled catacombs where filmmaking brothers Drew and John Erick Dowdle shot their new horror-thriller As Above So Below. “It is an extremely creepy place,” says director John Erick (Quarantine, Devil). “It really tweaks at the mind. You go down there and your pulse slows. It’s really weird.”

'X-Men: First Class' writers, Steve Carell join Looney Tunes 'Acme' project

While Bugs Bunny fans eagerly await news about whether Space Jam 2 will ever happen, another movie based on the Looney Tunes world is moving forward with a pair of writers and one of its leads.

EW can confirm The Hollywood Reporter‘s original report that the writers behind 2011’s X-Men: First Class and the upcoming Power Rangers reboot, Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, have signed on to write the untitled Acme film. Not much is known about the project’s plot, though it is expected to be a hybrid of live action and animation with Steve Carell in a starring role.

THR also reports that the writers of Carell’s Crazy, Stupid, Love, Glenn Ficarra, and John Requa, are in early negotiations to direct the project.

The Acme company is known in the Looney Tunes universe for developing ridiculous and impractical items most famously used by Wile E. Coyote in his endless pursuit of the Road Runner. Whether the two characters appear in the film, one of Coyote’s go-to weapons, an Acme-branded anvil, will surely make at least one cameo.

'Underworld' reboot scares up screenwriter

Before the Twilight franchise swept the box office, the Underworld series had a monopoly on the cinematic war between vampires and werewolves. Led by Kate Beckinsale, the original 2003 film spawned three sequels—and now it appears the series is getting rebooted.

As The Hollywood Reporter originally reported, the studio behind Underworld, Lakeshore Entertainment, has hired Cory Goodman to pen the reboot’s script. Goodman’s previous work includes the vampire-human war depicted in Priest, as well as the upcoming Vin Diesel film The Last Witch Hunter.

The last film in the series, Underworld: Awakening, debuted in 2012 and went on to become the franchise’s highest earner at the worldwide box office by a wide margin. But despite that recent success, Lakeshore should be sure to choose the reboot’s star wisely: The only Underworld film not to feature Beckinsale, 2009’s Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, finished its run as the worst-performing entry in the franchise.
