Eastwood News / The 15:17 to Paris: Production Information and News
« on: April 20, 2017, 12:23:12 PM »

EXCLUSIVE: Clint Eastwood has firmed the next film he will direct. He’ll helm a drama based on the book The 15:17 To Paris: The True Story Of A Terrorist, A Train, And Three American Heroes. The book was written by Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos, Spencer Stone and Jeffrey E. Stern; the life rights of the heroes Sadler, Skarlatos and Stone are part of the package. Newcomer scribe Dorothy Blyskal wrote the script, and Eastwood will begin casting right away to start production later this year. Eastwood will produce with Tim Moore, Kristina Rivera and Jessica Meier
This keeps Eastwood on the track of building crowd-pleasing movies out of true stories about ordinary men in extraordinary situations. That included Sully, the hit film about Chesley Sullenberger (Tom Hanks), the heroic airline pilot who landed US Airways flight 1549 in the Hudson River after the engines were damages by birds right after takeoff. Before that, Eastwood directed the blockbuster American Sniper, about Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper) and the toll his precise shooting in Iraq took on himself and his family.

Here, Eastwood makes room for a trio of heroes in Sadler, Skarlatos and Stone. In August 2015, an ISIS terrorist boarded train #9364 from Brussels to Paris. Armed with an AK-47 and enough ammo to kill more than 500 people, the terrorist might have succeeded except for three American friends who refused to give in to fear. Stone was a martial arts enthusiast and airman first class in the U.S. Air Force, Skarlatos was a member of the Oregon National Guard, and all three pals proved fearless as they charged and ultimately overpowered the gunman after he emerged from a bathroom armed and ready to kill. They most certainly averted a mass tragedy.

General Discussion / An interview with Renato Casaro
« on: July 30, 2015, 09:58:19 AM »

There are few film poster artists as prolific as Italian-born Renato Casaro whose work featured on thousands of posters advertising films around the globe for over 40 years. From his beginnings as a cinema-obsessed youth in Treviso, northern Italy, Renato forged a career that saw him join the famous Studio Favalli in Rome aged 19 before becoming a freelance artist and designer just over a year later. By the time of his retirement at the end of the millennium he had worked on memorable posters for some of the biggest films of the past 50 years whilst forming close friendships with the likes of Dino De Laurentiis, Sergio Leone and Bernardo Bertolucci. For many years Renato was the go-to artist for both Italian and German distributors wanting to release their films with a striking poster design.

Quote
What happened when it came to painting the re-release posters?
Sandro Symeoni had painted the original Italian poster for A Fistful of Dollars and at that time Clint Eastwood wasn’t the big name star he was a few years later so his face wasn’t painted accurately and the poster just depicts an action scene. When the film was re-released in Germany at the end of the 1970s, Leone asked me to make sure I focused the poster on Eastwood and make it a recognisable portrait of him.

Just received the September issue.
It seems that the editors are planing a companion issue to the Dollars Trilogy special.
They announce a special issue entitled "The American Westerns of Clint Eastwood" for spring 2015.

Maybe Mike can enlighten us a bit.

If I'm correct this concept was originally meant to be a book...

The Cannes Film Festival has set a screening of a restored version of 1964′s “A Fistful of Dollars” for May 24 with Quentin Tarantino hosting the closing-night event.

The screening will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the release of the first Spaghetti Western, directed by Sergio Leone  and starring Clint Eastwood and Gian Maria Volonte.

The film will be screened after prizes have been awarded, using a new copy restored by the Cineteca di Bologna. The restoration was undertaken by the Cineteca di Bologna and Unidis Jolly Film (the original producer and distributor); the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and Martin Scorsese’s Film Foundation were also involved.

The Immagine Ritrovata film restoration laboratory digitized the original Techniscope camera negative and restored it to 4K resolution. Cinematographer Ennio Guarneri oversaw the digital calibration.

The digital restoration of the sound used two optical negatives of the English version owned by Unidis Jolly Film and MGM, remixed with two separate magnetic sets containing the original pre-mixes of the music and the effects.

Clint Eastwood collaborator Ted Post dies aged 95

Ted Post, the film and TV director notable for collaborating with Clint Eastwood on Hang 'Em High and Magnum Force, died yesterday. He was 95.
 

The Brooklynite made his directorial debut in the 1950s, and first worked with Eastwood in the 1960s TV series Rawhide. The actor then insisted Post direct Hang 'Em High in 1968.

The two would later fall out during the filming of Magnum Force, with the director claiming Eastwood had ruined his career by giving the impression he directed more of the film than he did.

According to the BBC, he later told an interviewer: "I believe that Clint became afflicted with a touch of megalomania. Clint's greed and ego began to affect his sensitivity and judgment."

His other directing credits include 1970's Beneath the Planet of the Apes, as well as 56 episodes of the Western series Gunsmoke, 90 installments of Peyton Place and the 1981 pilot episode for Cagney & Lacey. As well as Eastwood, he directed Elliott Gould, Burt Lancaster, Chuck Norris and Robert Mitchum.

In 1996, Post formed Pro Bono Productions, which he hoped would showcase the skills of older film makers in L.A.

Eastwood joined Jack Lemmon, Karl Malden and Gregory Peck in publicly backing the initiative.

Post told the Los Angeles Times: “Today we’re living in an era where it's a sin to be old.

"It wasn't true years ago. They were looking for people with experience to guide them.

"But, these days, you’re discarded like Kleenex. It’s a very serious problem.”

His last directing credit was 1999's low-budget film 4 Faces.

He is survived by his wife Thelma, two children and four grandchildren.

« on: February 27, 2012, 06:47:30 AM »
Clint Eastwood's longtime collaborator Bruce Surtees has died at the age of 74.

The Oscar-nominated cinematographer passed away last Thursday, according to Variety. No more details about his death were known as WENN went to press.

He made 14 films with the veteran actor/director, including 1971's Dirty Harry, and Eastwood chose Surtees as his director of photography when he made his directorial debut on Play Misty for Me in 1971.

Surtees won an Oscar nomination in 1975 for his work on Bob Fosse's Lenny Bruce biopic Lenny and his other film credits include Risky Business and Beverly Hills Cop. »
