Martin Scorsese to helm George Washington biopic which will undoubtedly star Leonardo DiCaprio
Apr 28, 2016 2:20pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Martin Scorsese has an absurd number of projects in the hopper, including an untitled Mike Tyson biopic, an untitled Leonard Bernstein project, an untitled Ramones project, a Grateful Dead documentary, a remake of Macbeth, a Frank Sinatra biopic, an Evel Knievel biopic, an adaptation of The Devil in the White City, and an original crime drama called The Irishman.
But when presented with the opportunity to helm a biopic about President George Washington, the Academy Award-winning director couldn’t pass it up. Especially with Leonardo Dicaprio set for the lead role. Ok, that last part is unconfirmed, but let’s be honest, it’s probably going to happen.
The Tracking Board reports Scorsese is in talks to helm The General, which is being described as a “Unforgiven-like” biopic centered around Washington’s role as a General in the Revolutionary War.
The script was written by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage, who penned Allegiant and the forthcoming Assassin’s Creed. Daren Aronofsky was previously attached to the project.
A prequel to The Omen is in the works
Apr 28, 2016 2:03pm | Cosequence Of Sound
In 1976, The Omen introduced audiences around the world to Damien, a big-cheeked little boy who just happened to be the Antichrist. The Richard Donner-directed film, which starred Gregory Peck, eventually went on to become one of the most successful at the box office that year and a classic in the horror cannon.
Now, some four decades later, a prequel is said to be in the works. According to The Hollywood Reporter, filmmaker Antonio Campos, who recently helmed the riveting Sundance biopic Christine, is in talks to direct for 20th Century Fox. David Goyer (The Dark Knight trilogy, Man of Steel) and Kevin Turen (The Birth of a Nation) are on board as producers. Ben Jacoby, writer for the 2016 thriller Bleed, is said to have penned the script.
The original Omen went on to spawn two sequels, Damien: Omen II in 1978 and Omen III: The Final Conflict in 1981. A remake of the film came out in 2006.

The trailer for Southside With You recounts the Obamas first date watch
Apr 28, 2016 1:20pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Southside With You is a new film from director Richard Tanne which recounts President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama’s very first date in the summer of 1989. The film premiered at Sundance to rave reviews, including from our own Michael Roffman, who called it, “charming and prescient.”
“Tanne borrows from Richard Linklaters notebook and applies his Before magic, eschewing any of the expected prestige in lieu of surprising naturalism,” wrote Roffman. “Walking with Barack and Michelle, you tend to forget who they are at times, which is quite a powerful feat on behalf of the filmmaker.”
Parker Sawyers stars as the future president of the United States, while Tika Sumpter portrays Mrs. Obama.
The official synopsis:
“Inspired by Barack and Michelle Obamas first date, Southside With You recounts the eventful summer day in 1989 when a young law firm associate named Barack Obama (Parker Sawyers) tried to woo lawyer Michelle Robinson (Tika Sumpter) during a daylong date that took them from the Art Institute of Chicago to a screening of Spike Lees Do the Right Thing to the site of their first kiss outside of an ice cream parlor.”
