Sundance: Sony Pictures Worldwide Nabs Foreign Rights to ‘Hearts Beat Loud’

Sundance: Sony Pictures Worldwide Nabs Foreign Rights to ‘Hearts Beat Loud’
Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has acquired all international rights to Brett Haley’s “Hearts Beat Loud” in advance of its Sundance Film Festival premiere.

The tender drama about a father (Nick Offerman) trying to convince his daughter (Kiersey Clemons) to form a band premieres on the festival’s last night. It marks Haley’s third Sundance film in four years — he previously debuted “The Hero” and “I’ll See You in My Dreams” at the mountainside gathering. It’s a showy role for Offerman, allowing an actor best known for his comedic turn on “Parks & Recreation” to flex some dramatic muscles.

The deal excludes North American rights and was negotiated on behalf of the filmmakers by Endeavor Content. Sony’s Michael Helfand, Joe Matukewicz, and Jon Freedberg negotiated the deal for the studio.

The film co-stars Ted Danson, Sasha Lane, Blythe Danner, and Toni Collette, with original music by Keegan DeWitt, and is set

Sundance: Brett Haley on ‘Hearts Beat Loud’ and Making Indie Films for Middle America

Sundance: Brett Haley on ‘Hearts Beat Loud’ and Making Indie Films for Middle America
Brett Haley has become as much a Sundance institution as the trams that circle around Park City, Utah.

The indie filmmaker has premiered three films at the festival in four years, scoring with the likes of “I’ll See You in My Dreams” and “The Hero.” His latest effort, “Hearts Beat Loud,” will close out this year’s gathering. It’s the story of a Brooklyn record store owner (Nick Offerman) who tries to convince his college-bound daughter (Kiersey Clemons) to start a band. At a time when many Sundance offerings are bleak or medicinal, “Hearts Beat Loud” is unabashedly uplifting and, shudder, entertaining. That also bodes well for its commercial prospects — something that should help the film attract a buyer as it searches for distribution.

On the eve of another Sundance, Haley spoke with Variety about his work ethic, his box office track record, and what inspired “Hearts Beat Loud.”

You are wildly prolific.

Flashpoint Movie Gets Vacation Directors Daley and Goldstein

Warner Bros. has finally brought on new filmmakers for its long-awaited Flashpoint movie, with John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein (Vacation, Game Night) entering negotiations to direct. The studio had previously been courting Ben Affleck to direct this movie, and while he ultimately passed, that may have explained the rumor from last month that the actor will return as Batman in the Flashpoint movie, but not in The Batman, with his involvement in that project still very much up in the air. Warner Bros. had no comment on the story, and while it may be some time before there's confirmation, it seems clear the Flashpoint movie is finally back on the right track.

The project has had more than its fair share of ups and downs, with The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller first tapped to direct this project a few years ago, but they ultimately

What does the future hold for DC movies?

Rob Leane Dec 20, 2017

Following on from Justice League, let’s have a look at the slate of upcoming DC Extended Universe films...

With Justice League failing to bring in Avengers-level money and instead procuring a sizeable pile of negative write-ups, Warner Bros is making some behind-the-scenes changes with regards to its DC Comics film adaptations.

Comic book legend Geoff Johns remains in a position of power as DC Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer, but Jon Berg – who had been the head honcho of Warner Bros’ DC output – has been shuffled away from the intertwined mega-franchise to focus on non-superhero projects.

Shortly after that news broke, a DC presentation at Brazil’s Comic Con Experience 2017 included an outline of DC Entertainment’s upcoming cinematic plans. This provided a strong - although not definitive - indicator of which DC films will be reaching our eyeballs in the near-ish future.

More Evidence Suggests That Iris West Will Be Recast For Flashpoint

At the very least, Justice League proved to be an entertaining action movie featuring DC’s A-list superheroes. But while there were some great moments shared between the characters, those of us who vehemently followed its production are well aware of how much was left on the cutting room floor. Heck, one person even assembled a trailer featuring footage shot by Zack Snyder that didn’t make the final cut.

Things such as this, among others, have led to a public outcry, with a sizable chunk of the fanbase wishing for Snyder’s cut of the film to be released on home video. Actually, reports have surfaced saying that an extended version will be included on the Blu-ray, although it may not necessarily be the “Snyder Cut” – it’ll just be beefed up with additional scenes. And while we can’t be too sure of what’ll happen until Warner Bros.

More rumours of troubles in the Dceu, Avengers: Infinity War trailer makes Kevin Smith cry and more – Daily News Roundup

Issues In Warner Bros Affected Justice League

With all of the production issues Justice League clearly had, many fans have wondered why Warner Bros. didn’t just delay the movie and wait until it was right. Well according to a new report from The Wrap – so do take this with a pinch of salt – Warner Bros. executives needed to get the film out in order to get their bonuses for the year. WB president Toby Emmerich and CEO Kevin Tsujihara “wanted to preserve their bonuses they would be paid before the merger [with At&T],” and were concerned that “if they pushed the movie, then their bonuses would have been pushed to the following year and they might not still be at the studio.” Hmm.

Rumour: Warner Bros. was reportedly going to recast Iris West for Flashpoint

Last summer, back when Rick Famuyiwa remained attached to direct, it was announced that Dope actress Kiersey Clemons had been cast as Iris West alongside Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen in Warner Bros.’ The Flash movie, with Clemons subsequently confirmed to cameo as the character in Justice League.

Well, Clemons’ role was ultimately cut from the DC blockbuster, although it did leak online a few weeks back – and according to a VFX artist who worked on the film – the fact the clip leaked may have saved the actresses job as Warner Bros. was reportedly looking to recast the role for Flashpoint.

“We were replacing Clemons with a digital woman in the shot – Clemons was brought on because of Famuyiwa, when he bailed, it meant WB could recast her,” said the unnamed source on Reddit. “That’s around the time the shot was cut. Now it’s been leaked online with her in it,

Warner Bros. Wants To Recast Iris West For Flashpoint, But Can They?

Right now the Dceu is in a state of flux. If everything had gone to plan, Justice League would have been the critical and commercial equal to Marvel’s Avengers and kicked off a hotly anticipated phase of DC characters solo movies. With the film a bit of a disaster, however, things are up in the air for Warner Bros. And their problems couldn’t be better illustrated than the current fix they’re in regarding who will play Iris West in Flashpoint.

Previously cast was Kiersey Clemons by director Rick Famuyiwa, and West was set to make her debut in Justice League before a full appearance in the Flash solo film. Unfortunately, the character ended up a victim of the editing scissors and never made it to the final cut of Justice League. Not only that, but Famuyiwa is off the project due to creative differences. So, given that

Justice League's growing fallout: moustaches, edits and more

Ryan Lambie Nov 28, 2017

It’s been a bumpy few days for Justice League, as its release is joined by news of hurried VFX and more...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for Justice League and Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

If the opening shot of Justice League wrong-footed you, then rest assured: it wasn’t only regular audiences who were left startled by Superman’s uncanny valley face. A brief scene designed to reintroduce a gentler, kinder First Son of Krypton, the superhero epic’s opening instead sparked widespread discussions about Henry Cavill’s top lip.

As was commonly reported before Justice League’s release, the cast of DC-Warner’s movie were recalled for extensive reshoots during post-production, during which time Cavill had already signed up for a role in Mission: Impossible 6 - a part that required him to grow a moustache.

Henry Cavill keen to “show Superman in his full colors”, contracted for one more DC movie

In the build up to the release of Justice League, Henry Cavill revealed that he felt the resurrected Man of Steel in Justice League is “the first time we see the true Superman” in the Dceu, and now the actor has been talking to The Los Angeles Times about how this sets the stage to tell a definitive Superman tale going forward.

“He’s definitely different from previous incarnations,” said Cavill with regards to Justice League’s Superman. “I feel like this is the natural progression from the end of Man of Steel into what he is now. This is a rebirth of the character, to coin the D.C. comics franchise right now: It’s a refresh. This movie highlights the qualities of Superman that exist in the comic books. That’s something I’ve always been very keen to highlight in the character. This rebirth provided the opportunity
