Philip Noyce Directs Part of HBO Miniseries: AMERICAN LION

Philip Noyce Directs Part of HBO Miniseries: AMERICAN LION

We reported a while back that Sean Penn was taking on the mantle of Andrew Jackson in the developing AMERICAN LION miniseries and now a director is attached. Philip Noyce (pictured), who has directed such works as Patriot Games, The Bone Collector, Rabbit-Proof Fence and HBO Films: MARY AND MARTHA, is now expected to direct some of the six-hour program. Our source says the production should get before the cameras in October and air in 2017. Granted a six-hour period piece is a big project, but couldn’t Noyce take on the whole project? It would have made for a cohesiveness and singular vision had it been that way. We will keep an eye out...

HBO Miniseries: LEWIS AND CLARK Being Reworked

HBO Miniseries: LEWIS AND CLARK Being Reworked

Speaking about projects being reworked (see: WESTWORLD) the situation with the major HBO miniseries LEWIS AND CLARK seems to be a major overhaul of the scary kind and that is not good. First the sweeping six-hour endeavor hit a snag, to use the production team’s words, with “internal and external, weather-related factors,” leading to a “rough shoot” so far.   Then this past summer the director John Curran and the director of photography Rob Hardy left over the infamous “creative differences” reason. Then the trail went cold, as it were, and the project seemed dead in the water. Finally, we now have a little to go on about the...

HBO Films: The Leisure Class

HBO Films: The Leisure Class

  The Leisure Class is a film inextricably linked to its production, being the final project of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s newly revived series, Project Greenlight. When you look at a painting or listen to a song, you don’t normally see or hear the struggle that went on between conflicting artists vying to bring their vision to life. However, here that’s specifically the case as an entire television show was produced around the making of this film. From the start, Project Greenlight winner Jason Mann presented himself as someone with a vision he wanted to bring to life. It was his cinematic eye that shined through...
