Movie News: 'The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance' Remake In the Works; Nat Wolff To Star In 'Death Note'

Oct 01, 2015

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance: The latest classic to be resurrected by Hollywood is John Ford's 1962 Western The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, which stars Jimmy Stewart and John Wayne as a pair who once banded together against the titular outlaw, played by Lee Marvin. The new version, which will be produced by Matt Jackson (End of Watch) for Paramount, might be set in the steel industry in the 1980s. [Variety]

 

Death Note: The next movie from director Adam Wingard (You're NextThe Guest) has found its lead. Nat Wolff (Paper TownsThe Intern) will star in Death Note, based on the popular Japanese comic (already very successfully turned into a movie franchise there), as a teenager who finds a magic notebook allowing him to kill anyone whose name he writes down in it. The adaptation was written by Jeremy Slater (Fantastic Four). [Variety]

 

Where To Invade Next: Michael Moore's latest documentary, which just debuted at the Toronto Film Festival, has found a U.S. distributor. The company is brand new and doesn't even have a name yet, but it's a venture set up by Alamo Drafthouse and Drafthouse Films head Tim League with former Radius heads Tom Quinn and Jason Janego. No release date was revealed, but we can assume they're holding the feature until 2016, given that a statement from the distribution trio said, "we hope to remind Americans they have the inalienable right to laugh, especially in an election year."

 

The Forest Trailer: Game of Thrones and The Hunger Games star Natalie Dormer goes into the haunted woods to find her missing twin sister in the first full spot for The Forest. Set in Japan's real-life "suicide forest," Aokigahara, the horror film also stars Chicago Fire's Taylor Kinney and was co-written by David S. Goyer (Man of Steel). Find it in theaters on January 8, 2016.
