PROJECTS ANNOUNCED

  • Platinum Studios has teamed with Valhalla Motion Pictures to turn the thriller comicbook “Final Orbit” into a feature film. Russell Gewirtz (“Inside Man”) will write the script. Valhalla chair Gale Anne Hurd and Platinum Studios chairman-CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg will produce. “Final Orbit,” which will be published by Platinum Studios Comics early next year, tells the story of a lottery that gives thrill-seekers a chance to vacation aboard a newly completed International Space Station. But the trips turns nightmarish after the station is damaged, trapping tourists in a crippled module with no trained astronauts to help them. Randy Greenberg will exec produce and Valhalla’s Gary Ventimiglia will co-produce.
  • Holding Pictures has acquired rights to Steve Niles’ graphic novel “Wake the Dead” and set James V. Hart to write the script and Jay Russell to direct. Niles wrote the graphic novel “30 Days of Night.” Holding Pictures principal Charlie Lyons will produce, fully finance development and likely fund the film through principal photography.

INDUSTRY MOVES

  • Rob Marshall has signed with CAA. Marshall, who built his career at ICM, leaves as he is preparing to direct “Nine” for the Weinstein Co. Daniel Day-Lewis will star with Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Sophia Loren, Nicole Kidman and Judi Dench in the musical, inspired by the Fellini film “81⁄2,” which is scheduled to shoot this fall. The director and choreographer’s last musical, “Chicago,” won six Oscars including picture and earned Marshall a director nomination. He also helmed “Memoirs of a Geisha” and directed and choreographed “Annie” for ABC. Marshall becomes the latest name to change agency addresses in the last few months, but his exit is a big blow to ICM, which has maintained a strong list of writers and directors.

BUSINESS NEWS

  • In an unprecedented takeover of the box office by women, Warner Bros. and New Line’s “Sex and the City” grossed an estimated $55.7 million — racking up the best opening ever for an R-rated comedy and beating holdover “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” for the weekend crown. The film’s unexpected boffo performance mystified Hollywood and shattered the decades-old thinking that females — particularly older ones –can’t fuel the sort of big opening often enjoyed by a male-driven event pic or family movie. No romantic comedy, of whatever rating, has opened to such numbers, prompting immediate talk of a sequel. Nor was it a matter of Paramount’s “Crystal Skull” underperforming in its second sesh. The Steven Spielberg-directed tentpole, jumping the $200 million mark over the weekend, is tapping into the lucrative family market. “Crystal Skull” declined a respectable 54% in its second frame to an estimated $46 million from 4,264 runs; cume is $216.9 million. While “Sex and the City” had an enormous Friday — $26.9 million — “Crystal Skull” beat out the romantic comedy on Saturday and is expected to have done the same on Sunday. “Sex and the City” wasn’t the only title that did better than expected. Rogue Pictures and Universal’s horror title “The Strangers” grossed an estimated $20.7 million from 2,467 runs in its debut, far exceeding expectations. Film, costing roughly $9 million to produce, was No. 3 for the weekend. The frame was up as much as 31% over the same weekend last year, when “Knocked Up” opened.
  • Adding to ThinkFilm’s legal woes, Mammoth Advertising, a Brooklyn-based company handling promotion and ads, has filed a lawsuit against the beleaguered distrib and its parent, David Bergstein’s Capitol Films, for failing to pay $428,295 in fees. Filed in New York’s Supreme Court, Mammoth’s suit alleges that the company was negligent in paying bills dating back to September. Think had previously posted a check for $80,000 that bounced. Some of the fees owed are related to a media plan purchased for Think’s “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead,” the Sidney Lumet-helmed film that was released in October and has grossed upward of $19 million. Mammoth contends it has not been paid a cent of the $257,000 it claims it’s owed despite repeated payment requests. Mammoth’s attorney Edward W. Hayes served Think with papers on May 2. Reached Friday, Hayes said a representative from Capitol/Think called to say the company intends to respond and wants to create a payment schedule. Referring to Think and Capitol, Hayes said, “They don’t want to sue and have to spend all that money on lawyers’ fees.” Calls to Think were referred to Bergstein’s praisery Insignia PR, which had no comment.

TECHNOLOGY/ MULT-PLATFORM CONTENT

  • It seems appropriate to announce this one just as S#x and The City opens in theaters. Fast-growing lifestyle and fashion vertical Glam Media has launched its first online video platform. Glam TV will distribute appropriately themed content such as E! Online’s E! News Now and Sony BMG’s Myplay.com to its network of 500+ premium sites and blogs that reach an aggregate 35 million uniques, per ComScore. Interesting sidelights of the launch include offering publishers curated videos from video platform Ooyala as well as linking the Glam network to Brightcove’s video content providers, offering a ready made distribution pipeline targeting the female demo.
  • Comcast Interactive Media (including sites such as Comcast.net, Fancast, Fandango, Ziddio and now Plaxo) is on target to turn a profit later this year, according to an interview in Reuters. Apparently ad revenue sharing partnerships with Google and Yahoo are bringing in more cash than expected.

WEBSITES TO WATCH

The guy-targeted site is easily the most crowded entertainment category on the net. It probably has something to do with the fact that the early days of online video was driven by, well, you know what I’m referring to. MTV Networks’ SpikeTV.com figures to have a leg up (no pun intended) on the competition, given the 96-million-home cable network behind it. A new redesign launching today follows web 2.0 standards, featuring a souped-up full episode video player, blog-style formatting, social networking tools and plenty of semi-crude attitude. The look is better, but not great – the organization needs a little work. Spike.com hopes to differentiate itself with compelling originals its sister network can contribute to and feed off of, according to Jon Slusser, SVP/Spike Digital & Video Games (former CEO of MTVN-acquired GameTrailers.com.) Spike is putting the finishing touches on an original content deal with Playboy that will yield web-only series exclusives for Spike.com and Playboy. (Spike should be a much better setting for the brand than YouTube, where a recent Playboy promotion fell mostly on deaf ears.) A new movie review show from YouTube’s Angry Video Game Nerd is coming. And the Spike network’s first original comedy The Factory will debut on the site 3 weeks before the on air premiere. Absorbing some 300,000 videos from the iFilm.com merger also helps add depth to the offering.

PROJECTS ANNOUNCED

  • Producers David Permut and Steve Binder have acquired screen rights to Alanna Nash’s 2003 book “The Colonel: The Extraordinary Story of Colonel Tom Parker and Elvis Presley.” Permut and Binder will develop a feature titled “The Colonel” based on the book about the man with shadowy origins who reinvented himself as the Svengali behind the world’s most famous entertainer. Parker started his showbiz career as a hustler on the carnival circuit before promoting Minnie Pearl and Eddy Arnold. Parker built Presley into a global music and film star — and took 50% of the spoils.
  • In a preemptive deal worth $850,000 against $1.6 million, Touchstone Pictures has sprung big for “Wedding Banned,” a comedy spec script by Jack Amiel and Michael Begler. A long-divorced couple kidnap their daughter on her wedding day to keep her from making the mistake of her life. The divorced parents rekindle their relationship as they elude cops and the angry groom. Mandeville’s David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman will produce with Nicole Rocklin and Blye Faust. Rocklin and Faust developed the project with the scribes.
  • “Made of Honor” scribes Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont have signed on to rewrite and direct the teen comedy “Big Man on Campus” for Columbia Pictures. Story kicks off when the most popular girl in school is unexpectedly rejected by the nerdiest guy. Her social status drops, his rises, and the rules of popularity shift for the entire school. Gina Wendkos penned an earlier draft based on her own pitch. Hal Lieberman (“Bridge to Terabithia”) is producing.

STRIKE/ LABOR NEWS

  • Even as insiders insisted that a deal was within reach, AFTRA and the majors continued to test the town’s patience by going down to the wire after three weeks of talks. With rival thesp union SAG champing at the bit to resume its negotiations at 10 a.m. today, AFTRA and the Alliance of Motion Picture & Televison Producers had been widely expected to announce a tentative agreement Tuesday. Negotiators had worked for nine consecutive days, including well into evenings in recent sessions, to finalize details. Instead, no deal had emerged as of late Tuesday amid a news blackout. Much of the negotiations have been devoted to a single issue — the companies’ proposal that actors agree to drop the consent requirement for online clips — and momentum has stalled on small details in recent sessions.

PROJECT UPDATES

Production of troubled indie comedy “Nailed,” starring Jessica Biel and Jake Gyllenhaal, has been shut down for a third time due to financial problems. Below-the-line crews refused to work Thursday. Members of the Intl. Alliance of Theatrical & Stage Employees were ordered by IATSE leaders not to show up at the South Carolina set after not being paid. A person familiar with the situation said production’s expected to resume Thursday in South Carolina. Previously set plans had been for filming to go on to a Thursday-through-Monday work week at that point to accommodate the availability of locations such as the state capitol buildings. IATSE-repped employees also stopped production on May 15 after not being paid, then resumed on Monday. The Screen Actors Guild had ordered its members to stop working on May 9 after film financer Capitol Films failed to deposit enough required money in SAG accounts set up to pay the actors. Capitol Films was not immediately available for comment. IATSE also would not comment. Pic, directed by David O. Russell, began shooting April 15 and is due to wrap in mid-June. Catherine Keener, James Marsden and Tracy Morgan also star. In a previous interview, Capitol Films topper David Bergstein insisted his company was on firm financial footing despite reports about unpaid bills and lawsuits. “Nailed” is produced by Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher through their Red Wagon banner and by Persistent Entertainment. Script by Russell and Kristin Gore, centers on an uninsured woman who goes on a crusade for better health care after a nail is accidentally shot into her head.

ACQUISITIONS/ FESTIVAL NEWS

As the Cannes Film Festival came to a close over the weekend, Sony Pictures Classics picked up North American distribution rights to animated Israeli docu “Waltz With Bashir,” capping a late-hour buying spree by the specialty unit. Michael Barker and Tom Bernard’s Sony Classics also sealed deals for Competition pic “Lorna’s Silence” and Un Certain Regard’s “O’Horten.” In addition, Sony’s specialty arm is expected to close a deal for all rights to James Toback’s Mike Tyson docu “Tyson” in the next few days. For much of the festival, there was a noticeable lack of dealmaking on the part of North American buyers, prompting some to proclaim that the market was dead. A burst of activity by IFC Films and, at the 11th hour, by Sony Pictures Classics changed that perception.

Regent Releasing has acquired distribution rights to ensemble comedy “Kabluey,” starring Lisa Kudrow, Scott Prendergast, Teri Garr, Christine Taylor, Conchata Ferrell, Chris Parnell and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Regent plans to release the film this summer. Prendergast directed from his own script and shot in Austin, Texas. Story centers on a man who’s forced to take a humiliating job as a corporate mascot to help his sister-in-law tend to her toddlers while his brother is off fighting in Iraq. “Kabluey” was produced by Rick Rosenthal through his Whitewater Films banner along with Gary Dean Simpson, Rhoades Rader, Jeff Balis and Doug Sutherland. Sarah Feinberg and Nancy Stephens exec produced.

BUSINESS NEWS

Sydney Pollack, the prolific director, producer and actor whose films tackled a variety of social issues while garnering critical acclaim and earning boffo numbers at the box office, died of cancer Monday afternoon at his home in Pacific Palisades. He was 73. Pollack’s publicist Leslee Dart said he was surrounded by family. Pollack continued to work after his cancer diagnosis, with several of his projects bowing recently or still to premiere.

The opening of Steven Spielberg’s “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” crystallized into a $311.1 million behemoth at the worldwide box office. Performance marks a triumphant return for the classic action-adventure film franchise after an 19-year slumber, and for topliner Harrison Ford. On the strength of baby boomers and their kids, “Crystal Skull” grossed an estimated $126 million domestically from 4,260 theaters over the long holiday weekend in the second-best Memorial Day bow. Last year’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” ($139.8 million) holds the record. “Crystal Skull” opened Thursday; its five-day domestic haul clocked in at an estimated $151.1 million, according to Rentrak. Overseas, where it began rolling out Wednesday, “Crystal Skull” grossed $160 million through Monday. The weekend international take (through Sunday) of $146 million reps the fifth best international opening of all time.

STRIKE/ LABOR NEWS

With SAG anxiously waiting in the wings, AFTRA and the majors are believed to be near a tentative deal on the union’s primetime contract. Amid a news blackout, neither side issued any official announcement as of Monday evening, but it was understood that AFTRA and the AMPTP had entered the final stages of reaching a three-year agreement. Monday marked the 16th day of negotiations between the two orgs. AFTRA leaders, who have touted their pragmatic approach, had been widely expected to make a deal before the Screen Actors Guild did. SAG is scheduled to resume its talks with the AMPTP on Wednesday. In agreeing to negotiate over the Memorial Day holiday weekend, both AFTRA and the AMPTP had started sending strong signals that they were closing in on a deal. Monday’s session marked the eighth consecutive day of bargaining over the contract, which covers a handful of primetime shows including “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Reaper,” “Rules of Engagement” and “‘Til Death.”

USA Network launched a Facebook app around its new show In Plain Site. Users take the role of a U.S. Marshall as the game dynamically pulls public information from a friend’s profile and delivers it into the game as “clues” to see how quickly the player can guess the friend’s identity.

Although it’s early days, signs of an (eventually) thriving mobile advertising market are on the horizon, according to Paul Burns, Director IPTV, Mobile, Broadband at Sympatico MSN at Vidfest’s parallel event, Convergence 2008. To defend his position he ticked off:

Feeling the need to strengthen its connection with digitally savvy gen Yr’s, the McDonalds’ interactive marketing team launched the UGC-powered alternative reality game The Lost Ring that has taken on a life of its own. Interactive banners around the world ask consumers Are you in? Trailers tease the audience with pieces of the backstory, which involves a young heroine who wakes up in a parallel universe not knowing who or where she is. What does she do? She sets up a blog to connect with other lost souls and together they begin to piece together clues about “Esperant,” a long lost universal global language that has the power to unite the human race at the summer Olympic Games in Beijing. The beauty of the campaign is that users are doing all the heavy lifting. Fans have launched wikis, video channels and Esperanto translation sites in more than 100 countries. Cleverly, the McDonald’s brand is barely noticeable. The depth and execution of the project is amazing.

PROJECT UPDATES

  • Jonathan Demme is taking over from Martin Scorsese as the director of an authorized Bob Marley documentary. Docu, produced by the Marley family’s Tuff Gong Pictures and Steve Bing’s Shangri-La Entertainment, has a target release date of Feb. 6, 2010, the 65th anniversary of Marley’s birth. Fortissimo Films is handling international sales. Scorsese, who announced in February that the untitled pic would be the follow-up to his Rolling Stones concert pic “Shine a Light,” dropped out for scheduling reasons.

ACQUISITIONS/ FESTIVAL NEWS

  • For the first time in years, Michael Barker and Tom Bernard’s Sony Pictures Classics might leave the Cannes Film Festival empty-handed. Sony Classics is known for being bullish on foreign-language fare, and has bought two or three films out of Cannes annually. Last year, Bernard and Barker bought “The Counterfeiters” and “The Band’s Visit.” They’re not the exception. Among American studio specialty arms and indie distribs, this year’s fest has been notably lean on deal-making. Despite plenty of advance buzz, James Gray’s “Two Lovers” and Charlie Kaufman’s “Synecdoche, New York,” are still up for sale.
  • Music Box Films has puckered up for domestic rights to Emmanuel Mouret’s Gallic romantic comedy “Shall We Kiss.” Mouret (“Change of Address”) wrote, directed and co-stars in the cause-and-effect tale of a kiss on multiple couples. Plans are for a late summer release. Virginie Ledoyen, Julie Gayet, Michael Cohen, Frederique Bel and Stefano Accorsi also star. Deal, Mouret’s first with a U.S. distrib, was sealed in Cannes by Music Box partner William Schopf and TF1’s Dimitri Stephanides.
  • IFC Films has devoured domestic rights to tyro writer-director Steve McQueen and writer Enda Walsh’s drama “Hunger.” Pic had its world preem in Cannes as Un Certain Regard opener and is a Camera d’Or contender. Michael Fassbender and Liam Cunningham star. “Hunger” picks up in the aftermath of the 1981 IRA hunger strike led by Bobby Sands and takes a look at life behind bars in the Maze Prison in Northern Ireland. IFC has been particularly hungry at this year’s fest, snapping up rights to seven titles so far.

BUSINESS NEWS

  • Filmmakers Mark and Michael Polish have formed Prohibition Pictures. To launch the shingle, they’ve lined up financing for two features they’ve co-written, which will shoot back to back starting next week. The siblings start with “Manure,” a comedy about manure salesmen in 1960s heartland America that reteams them with their “Astronaut Farmer” star Billy Bob Thornton. Tea Leoni and Kyle MacLachlan also star in the film, which begins production Tuesday. Days after the film wraps July 14, the brothers will begin production on “Stay Cool,” a comedy that will star Winona Ryder, Sean Astin and Chevy Chase. The pair co-wrote the scripts, and Mark Polish will be a featured thesp in both films. They will partner in Prohibition Pictures with longtime collaborator Jonathan Sheldon, financier-producer Ken Johnson and his partner-producer Ja’net DuBois, who has invested in the company. The Polish brothers will produce the films with Johnson, Sheldon and DuBois, with Nick Byassee serving as associate producer.

STRIKE/ LABOR NEWS

  • Hopes for the American Federation of Television & Radio Artists closing a primetime deal with the majors soon have started to vanish, with a June 30 contract expiration looming. The majors held their 11th day of contract negotiations Wednesday with talks slated to resume today amid a news blackout at the headquarters of the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers. Expectations had been high that AFTRA – with only seven shows to cover — would have wrapped up a deal before this week and put pressure on SAG to make a deal when it comes back to the table next week. Instead, AFTRA took a stance this week mirroring the Screen Actors Guild and declared that actors must still be asked for their consent for clips of their work to be used online. That’s significantly lowered expectations of a deal coming any time soon. Studios and broadcast networks can use clips for promotional purposes but are required to negotiate with the performers when clips are re-used for entertainment. The companies have asserted that there’s plenty of potential coin for actors via developing a market for clips to compete with the massive amounts of pirated footage on the Web.

INDUSTRY MOVES

  • Hutch Parker, vice chairman of the 20th Century Fox Film Group, has been named chairman of Fox-based New Regency alongside Bob Harper. Parker will end a 13-year run as a Fox exec when he begins the new job in mid-June. At Fox, he had a hand in such recent successes as “X-Men,” “Night at the Museum,” “Borat,” “I, Robot,” “The Day After Tomorrow,” “Alien vs. Predator,” “Dodgeball,” “Fantastic Four” and “Master and Commander.”

TECHNOLOGY/ MULT-PLATFORM CONTENT

  • Michael Eisner divulged some details about Vuguru’s next big online series. (This one will launch during the 50-webisode run of Foreign Body, a prequel to the Robin Cook hospital thriller about medical tourism set in India, set to launch May 27.) Back on Topps stars Randy and Jason Sklar, former hosts of ESPN’s Cheap Seats, as two of a group of executives vying to succeed the fictional founder of their company, Marvin Topps. The yarn is constructed to synergize with Topps trading cards, acquired by Eisner last year.
  • Newly renamed and reorganized KIT Digital (formerly ROO) will announce the acquisition of digital video content creator Kamera today, adding mobile content to its suite of IPTV solutions for the first time. Kamera offers video content to over 100 clients, including 40+ mobile operators and 70+ broadband media publishers, enabling companies such as Vodafone, MSN, Orange, Telefonica, O2, Hutchinson and China Mobile to deliver IPTV channels and content to their customers over mobile and online networks.
  • MTV will produce an array of VOD extras around films nominated for MTV Movie Awards this year for affiliates including Comcast, Time Warner, Cox and Charter. Look for making of featurettes behind-the-scenes clips, music videos, etc. There will also be a reprise of the best movie spoofs online UGC contest as well as the top nominated films from mtvU’s Best Film On Campus.
  • RDF Digital is producing original webisodes based on RDF’s faux Japanese game show format Banzai, which will have an exclusive home on MySpaceTV for the first 30 days before being syndicated to popular U.S. platforms YouTube, Hulu, MetaCafe and Dailymotion. The show, which has aired on Fox, USA, Comedy Central and G4 in the U.S., has attracted an array of celebrity guests including Angelina Jolie, Kelsey Grammar and Bill Murray.
  • Social entertainment producers Miles Beckett and Greg Goodfried, creators of LG15 and KateModern, look to branch out into a variety of interactive genres in upcoming EQAL projects for CBS including comedy, drama and non-scripted series, the two said in an interview. (In the meantime, the deal has provided enough funds to allow them to move their workspace from their living rooms to an actual LA office space.) Miles, head writer on both projects, did not rule out more shadowy, conspiracy-themed material he admits to gravitating toward. The point after all is to engage the audience and nothing lights up a chat board or motivates a wiki contributor like a good conspiracy yarn. Also expect more strong female characters. More than 65% of the fans that follow their shows are women.
