“Cosmic Sin” Picked Up by Saban for North America

Saban Films has acquired North American rights to Bruce Willis-starring sci-fi-action project “Cosmic Sin.” One of the hottest projects being pitched at the Berlin Film Festival’s European Film Market, the picture is written and directed by Corey Large and Edward Drake (“Breach”) with Large also producing.

“Cosmic Sin” follows a group of warriors and scientists who must fight to protect and save their race when a hostile alien species with the power to infect and take over human hosts sets its sights on a futuristic human society.

“Saban Films has been partnering on films at earlier stages and this is a project we knew we wanted to be involved with from the beginning,” said Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley, who negotiated the deal, with Large on behalf of the filmmakers.

The film is currently in pre-production, with The Exchange handling international rights in other territories. Stephen Eads is executive producing.

Willis also stars in upcoming “Breach,” another sci-fi action project, featuring an alien force intent on taking control of a space ship. “Breach” is in post-production and was represented by Film Mode Entertainment.

Saban has handled theatrical films such as Hilary Swank-starring “The Homesman,” to two of the biggest Fathom events Rob Zombie’s “3 From Hell” last year and Kevin Smith’s “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot.” Saban’s upcoming slate includes: Jason Lei Howden’s “Guns Akimbo,” starring Daniel Radcliffe; Ant Timpson’s “Come to Daddy,” starring Elijah Wood, and “Vivarium,” starring Imogen Poots and Jesse Eisenberg.

Hey everyone! So sorry for the lack of updates lately… I’ve been very busy in my offline life and sadly my fannsites have been suffering because of it. Hope I make up some of it by giving you some awesome promotional images from Bruce’s latest movies! Enjoy!

‘Motherless Brooklyn’ To Open Chicago International Film Festival

Edward Norton’s adaptation of Jonathan Lethem’s novel Motherless Brooklyn will open the 55th edition of the Chicago International Film Festival.

Motherless Brooklyn centers on Lionel Essrog (Edward Norton), a lonely private detective living with Tourette Syndrome, who ventures to solve the murder of his mentor and only friend, Frank Minna (Bruce Willis). Armed only with a few clues and the engine of his obsessive mind, Lionel unravels closely guarded secrets that hold the fate of New York in the balance. In a mystery that carries him from gin-soaked jazz clubs in Harlem to the hard-edged slums of Brooklyn and, finally, into the gilded halls of New York’s power brokers, Lionel contends with thugs, corruption and the most dangerous man in the city to honor his friend and save the woman who might be his own salvation.

The film’s ensemble cast includes Bruce Willis, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Bobby Cannavale, Cherry Jones, Michael Kenneth Williams, Leslie Mann, Ethan Suplee, Dallas Roberts, Josh Pais, Robert Ray Wisdom, Fisher Stevens, with Alec Baldwin and Willem Dafoe.

“We’re thrilled to be opening with Edward Norton’s stunning and accomplished new film,” said the festival’s artistic director Mimi Plauché. “Edward is already celebrated for his acting talent, but with his second feature as a director he’s proven himself to be a visionary filmmaker with a highly entertaining movie full of terrific performances that feels both timeless and utterly timely.”

The opening night celebration, sponsored by Bloomberg Philanthropies and the John and Jacolyn Bucksbaum Family Foundation, will be held at the AMC River East 21 at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 16, 2019. An after-party at Union Station Burlington Room will follow, with additional support provided by Aberlour, Chloe Wine Collection, Goose Island, and Forza Meats.

Presented by Cinema/Chicago, the 55th Chicago International Film Festival will take place Oct. 16-27 at the AMC River East.

Bruce Signs 3-Picture Deal With MoviePass Films

It solidified a long relationship that Willis has had with Emmett/Furla/Oasis. He has made 14 films with them, with 10 Minutes Gone in post-production and past efforts that include the Richard Donner-directed 16 Blocks and the Stephen Frears-helmed Lay the Favorite.

The first in the new three-pic pact will be Trauma Center, written by Paul da Silva. It will begin shooting in February in Miami. Additional casting is underway on the film. Emmett, Furla and Lydia Hull will produce Trauma Center, while Ted Farnsworth, Tim Sullivan and Alex Eckert will executive produce.

Speaking on the relationship between the company and Willis, Emmett said: “We consider Bruce a part of the MoviePass family at this point. Bruce is not only one of the biggest worldwide movie stars but is also a force to be reckoned with, and we look forward to the future with him.”

Said Willis, “After 15 years, I look forward to continuing to work with Randall and George in the coming year.”

EFO is in post-production on Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman along with Willis’ 10 Minutes Gone. The Michael Polish-helmed WWII drama Axis Sally starring Al Pacino is currently in pre-production.

Why ‘Die Hard’ is definitely a Christmas movie

A recent poll by the Hollywood Reporter/ Morning Consult found 62% of American adults thought “Die Hard” was not a Christmas film. And even Bruce Willis joined in the debate.

“Die Hard” sits at number 11 on ranking site Rotten Tomatoes’ 50 Best Christmas Movies. It also features on best Christmas lists by Time Out, and tops movie magazine Empire’s list.

The most successful Christmas movie of all time is Home Alone, with a lifetime gross $476,684,675. “Die Hard” has made box office totals of around $141, 278, 197, according to boxofficemojo. This year the British Film Institute includes contemporary comedies in its Christmas line-up, including “Gremlins” and “Home Alone”.

We take a look at different criteria: soundtrack, the time frame the film is set in, viewing habits, music, anti-Christmas element and overcoming of greed. We can prove it IS a Christmas movie. Sort of.


Tiberius Picks Up Bruce Willis Crime Drama ’10 Minutes Gone’

The indie action thriller, from high-octane director and regular Willis collaborator Brian A. Miller, sees the ‘Die Hard’ star playing a man trying to piece together his missing memory during a bank heist gone wrong.

In a deal that shows there’s still an international market for old-fashioned action, distributor Tiberius has picked up 10 Minutes Gone, Bruce Willis’ latest indie action thriller, for the German market.

The crime drama, from high-octane director and regular Willis collaborator Brian A. Miller (Officer Down, The Prince), sees the Die Hard star playing a man trying to piece together a missing 10 minutes lost from his memory during a bank heist gone wrong in order to find out who sabotaged him. Michael Chiklis and Meadow Williams co-star in the feature from EFO Films and MoviePass.

Tiberius also snatched up German rights to the action thriller Last Rampage, starring Robert Patrick as real-life convicted murderer Gary Tison, who staged a bloody escape from Arizona State Prison in 1978. Heather Graham co-stars in the film from Halloween 4 director Dwight H. Little.

Tiberius made it an AFM action three-peat with the pickup of T-34, a Russian war epic from director Aleksey Sidorov that follows a group of Russian soldiers during World War II who escape from German captivity in a wreck of tank.

This story first appeared in The Hollywood Reporter’s Nov. 3 daily issue at the American Film Market.

Gallery: Unbreakable (2000)

Hey guys! In preparation for Bruce’s new movie coming out in January, I’ve updated the gallery with HQ promotional art, stills and screen captures from the 2000 movie Unbreakable. The new movie, Glass, is the 3rd movie in what has been referred to as the “Eastrail 177 Trilogy” (Unbreakable is the 1st part!). Hope you guys enjoy!

This suspense thriller unfolds as the audience is introduced to David Dunn. Not only is he the sole survivor of a horrific train-crash that killed 131 people he doesn’t have a scratch on him. Elijah Price is an obscure character who approaches Dunn with a seemingly far fetched theory behind it all.
