Eastwood’s Hereafter is a supernatural thriller by Frost/Nixon and The Queen writer Peter Morgan that stars Matt Damon as a reluctant psychic. The film tells three parallel stories that eventually intersect – about a French TV journalist, played by Cecile de France, who suffers a near-death experience during the Asian tsunami of 2004; a drug-addicted English single mother, played by Lyndsey Marshal, who loses one of her twin 10-year-old sons in a car accident; and Damon’s character, who can talk to the dead but prefers not to. De France and Marshal contact Damon in a desperate quest for answers and consolation…Warner Bros. is financing the movie, which is produced by Eastwood’s Malpaso…







Battleship is set for a July 1, 2011. Peter Berg is directing the live-action pic based on Hasbro’s naval combat board game. Berg has called the film “a contemporary story of an international five-ship fleet engaged in a very dynamic, violent and intense battle”…

HOT TOPIC- MORE INFO TO COME!
Clint Eastwood To Shoot in Hawaii
Clint Eastwood is planning to film some of his new movie, Hereafter, in London. Production began yesterday in France on the supernatural thriller written by Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen) that stars Matt Damon as a reluctant psychic. The film will tell three individual stories which are ultimately connected; the first about a French journalist who suffers a near-death experience during the 2004 tsunami, a drug-addicted single mother who loses her son in an accident and Damon’s character, who desperately tries to ignore the fact that he can talk to the dead.

This will mark the first time that Eastwood, who has just finished directing Invictus starring Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela, will have filmed in the UK since making White Hunter, Black Heart at Pinewood in 1989. After shooting in London, Eastwood will then move the Hereafter production to Hawaii.

Rumors have been circulating for months that CBS was close to finally reviving the iconic police drama Hawaii Five-0 after an announcement more than a year ago…Now it’s official…

CBS made the announcement yesterday saying that writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Transformer: Revenge of the Fallen) will do the screenplay…

“It obviously will be a very updated, modern version,” a source at CBS told Reel Hawaii…







Kurtzman, Orci and Peter Lenkov, an executive producer on CBS’ CSI: NY, will develop the new version…According to the CBS announcement, Lenkov will write the pilot script under Kurtzman and Orci’s supervision, with Lenkov being the showrunner if the pilot is picked up as a series…







No time frame was given as to when CBS would start shooting the pilot, begin preproduction or if it even will be shot in Hawaii…







Steven Bruckheimer and Warner Bros.’ Cooler Kings pilot according to sources has been delayed until at least January because so many productions are heading to Hawaii that available production equipment is quickly dwindling…Don’t be surprised if much of the Five-0 pilot is filmed on a sound stage in Los Angeles, a source said…According to Variety, CBS gave the project a pilot commitment yesterday after a pitch from Kurtzman, Orci and Lenkov…







CBS reportedly has wanted to revive the series since the disastrous pilot filmed on Oahu more than a decade ago starring Gary Busey…That pilot by veteran producer Stephen Cannell never aired…




The original Hawaii Five-0 series was created by Leonard Freeman and starred the iconic Jack Lord…A Five-0 film has been languishing in development for years by business partners of the Freeman estate…




Casting hasn’t been announced for the rebooted Five-0…

According to sources in Los Angeles and Honolulu, the Jerry Bruckheimer/Warner Bros. co production of Cooler Kings television pilot for A&E has been pushed to January. No reasons given but both sources believe it’s because of the possible lack of available necessary production equipment with so many features planning to start filing here before the end of the year
