Right after my Deadline Hollywood colleague Pete Hammond moderated a Weinstein Company panel this morning on Big Eyes, the film that Tim Burton will direct with Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams, I moderated another on Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Destiny, a sequel to the 2000 film that won the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, and at the time became the biggest grossing foreign language film in America. I was joined onstage by producer David Thwaites, Harvey Weinstein, actor Donnie Yen, director and martial arts choreography legend Yuen Wo Ping (he handled action choreography of the Ang Lee-directed original Crouching Tiger). Also with us was exec producer Anthony Wong, who translated for the director. Michelle Yeoh was seen on a screen, after being set to reprise her role. Scripted by John Fusco, this film is derived from Iron Knight, Silver Vase, the fifth book in the Wang Duluís Crane Iron Pentalogy. Fusco borrowed from some of the other books, but made the final title his primary focus. Weinstein acknowledged he courted Yen very hard to make his first English language movie with TWC (this will be shot in both English and Mandarin), and wasted no time setting the stage for a followup. Noting that Martin Scorsese helped him get rights to Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, Weinstein enlisted both Yen and Yuen Wo Ping to at least have a ... Read More »
Filed under: Performance, Luxury, McLaren Now that McLaren is a proper automaker, it's automatic that auto journalists will inquire about future product. That's how we've come to learn that the McLaren P1 will have a successor - but not until a decade from now. Attempting to answer the question left by the mission statement of the P1, which is that it "will maintain its status as the best super sports car the world has ever seen until a successor is built," Autocar inquired about the supercar's following act. The company's head of sales and marketing explained that not only will it be a "decade or so" before the next flagship arrives, but we can expect a "short product cycle" for the P1 because "you have to step back from the market for a few years." We take that to mean there'll be a gap when no transcendent flagship is on sale, the same way we waited nine years for the Ferrari LaFerrari to succeed the Enzo. The McLaren F1 didn't fulfill its sales ambitions but did become a legend. The clock has just started on the McLaren P1, but with "30 or so" cars in the order books it should avoid the former fate, and before we get to thinking about a successor, perhaps we can first see how the P1 fares against the competition and its own heritage.McLaren already pondering P1 successor originally appeared on Autoblog on Sun, 19 May 2013 05:21:00 EST.

Will Ferrell is still keepin' it classy in latest sneak peek of December 20 sequel, 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues.' By Katie Atkinson
If you went to see "Star Trek Into Darkness" this weekend, you may have glimpsed a nice little surprise; a new teaser trailer for arguably our single most anticipated motion picture of the year. Not "The Wolf Of Wall Street" or "Twelve Years A Slave," or "The Counselor" or even "Inside Llewyn Davis" (which our crack Cannes contingent are lining up for as we speak), but a little film called "Anchorman: The Legend Continues." Yep, the Channel 4 News Team are back together, with shooting having now taken place on the long-awaited sequel, and a year after the first teasers for the film, we get another glimpse at the picture today. It follows the same format as previous teasers, and while there isn't anything as brilliant as "In this movie, we play witches," there's plenty to enjoy here. We're counting the days until "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" hits theaters on December 20th.
