          Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley in Talks to Direct ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Movie

          Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley in Talks to Direct ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Movie
          Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley are in negotiations to direct the “Dungeons & Dragons” movie for Paramount Pictures.

          They’re replacing Chris McKay, who parted ways with the project to focus on the Skydance pic “Ghost Draft” starring Chris Pratt. The timing works out for the directing duo, as Daley and Goldstein recently left the Flash movie over creative differences, and Paramount moved quickly to jump at the chance to work with them.

          Michael Gillio will be penning the script. Hasbro’s Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis are producing.

          The film will be one of the first projects to go into production for the newly created AllSpark Pictures. Launched last October by Hasbro, the production company aims to transform itself into an industry player to rival Marvel Studios.

          In addition to the Dungeons & Dragons tabletop roleplaying game, Hasbro’s lines of toys and games include Mr. Potato Head,

          Disney’s ‘The Lion King’ Remake to Cross $1 Billion in Just 19 Days of Release

          Disney’s ‘The Lion King’ Remake to Cross $1 Billion in Just 19 Days of Release
          In just 19 days since it was released, Disney’s remake of “The Lion King” is set to pounce on $1 billion at the global box office Tuesday, making it the fourth Disney film this year to hit that figure.

          Disney’s live-action remake of “Aladdin” took a full two months before it crossed the $1 billion threshold, and the film is now the sixth live-action Disney release to ever cross the $1 billion mark in what is proving to be an incredibly dominant year for the Mouse House.

          Jon Favreau’s “The Lion King” split critics with just a 52% score on Rotten Tomatoes, but the film managed an A CinemaScore all the same.

          More to come…

          How The CW’s ‘Riverdale’ Provides a Direction Through the Cluttered Streaming Landscape

          Streaming has become something of a buyer’s market recently, and network executives are hustling to make their platforms stand out in an unprecedented and crowded film and television environment.

          At the Natpe Streaming Plus event in Los Angeles Tuesday, panelists, including executives from Netflix, CBS All Access, Starz, and a host of other television networks and streaming platforms, discussed the problems of monetization and content delivery that film and television providers are grappling with in the era of streaming video.

          No matter the subject, the perpetually increasing competitiveness of the streaming market loomed over every panel. There are already over 300 streaming services in the United States, and many of them feature acclaimed and popular films and television shows. Content wasn’t the primary discussion topic at Natpe, and rightfully so: Having the rights to one or two hit programs is no longer enough to stand out in the saturated streaming market,

          Film News Roundup: ‘Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool’ Set for Release by Abramorama

          Film News Roundup: ‘Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool’ Set for Release by Abramorama
          In today’s film news roundup, “Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool” finds a home, the Saturn Awards land a producer and La Skins Fest selects five fellows.

          Acquisition

          Abramorama has bought North American theatrical rights to Stanley Nelson’s documentary “Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool” and plans releases in August and September.

          “The story of Miles Davis – who he was as a man and artist – has often been told as the tale of a drug-addled genius,” said Nelson. “You rarely see a portrait of a man that worked hard at honing his craft, a man who deeply studied all forms of music, from Baroque to classical Indian. An elegant man who could render ballads with such tenderness yet hold rage in his heart from the racism he faced throughout his life.”

          The film premiered in January at Sundance. It includes outtakes from his recording sessions, rare photos and interviews with Quincy Jones,

          Spider in the Web, a film that has nothing to do with The Girl in the Spider’s Web or Spider-Man, stars Ben Kingsley as an aging Mossad agent suspected of fabricating intelligence. A younger operative is sent to shadow him – and that’s when things get slippery. Spider in the Web looks to be drawing on John Le Carré-style spy thrillers, […]

          ‘The Aeronauts’ No Longer Headed to IMAX After Amazon Changes Release Plan

          The Aeronauts, a film designed for IMAX and filmed partially with IMAX cameras, will no longer be headed to IMAX theaters. Last week, Amazon Studios changed its release plan for the Eddie Redmayne-Felicity Jones-led drama, pushing its theatrical run back from October 25—with one week exclusively in IMAX—to December 6, leaving just two weeks in theaters before it begins streaming on Amazon. When the news broke, Collider's Adam Chitwood questioned what that meant for the film's IMAX chances. According to THR, those chances just fell out of the wicker basket completely. "We don't …

          Pmk-bnc and Rogers & Cowan, Now Hollywood’s Biggest PR Firm — But Is That Better?

          When major PR firms merge, they’re usually consolidating in order to stay on top. It’s a little different for former standalones Pmk-Bnc (which has merged at least four times in 40 years) and Rogers & Cowan: Both are owned by the publicly traded Interpublic Group (2018 revenue: $9.71 billion). Now, they will form a single firm (yet to be named) that will represent more than 500 clients and 30 brands.

          So why the change? The combo creates a more impressive client list, and will allow them to trim the expenses and other redundancies that come when two entities merge. It’s the easiest and fastest way to become bigger while meeting the demands of their corporate overlords.

          Of course, bigger is not always better. Still, when the new company officially launches January 1, it will dwarf Kelly Bush and Mara Buxbaum’s ID-pr. It will also become one of the top 20 PR firms in the world,
