Film News Roundup: ‘Bridge of Spies’ Writer Matt Charman Producing Survival Novel ‘Ruthless River’
In today’s film news roundup, Matt Charman is developing “Ruthless River,” runaway slave story “Never Caught” is in the works as a movie, Cynthia Addai-Robinson is starring in “Always & Forever,” and “Kedi” gets a one-day release.

Development

Holly FitzGerald’s Amazon survival novel “Ruthless River” is in development as a movie with “Bridge of Spies” writer Matt Charman.

The story centers on FitzGerald and her husband, setting out on a yearlong honeymoon adventure backpacking around the world. Five months into the trip, their plane crash lands in Peru at a penal colony walled in by jungle, and their blissfully romantic journey turns into a terrifying nonstop labyrinth of escape and survival. They ultimately end up on a four-log raft that separates them from the piranha-and-caiman-infested water until they finally realize that there is no way out but to swim.

Charman, who received an Academy Award nomination for his “Bridge of Spies” screenplay, is also attached

Draya Michele on Breaking Into Acting, Reveals If She’ll Return to Reality TV (Exclusive)
Draya Michele is enjoying the “challenge” of building her acting career.

Fans first got to know her on Basketball Wives La, but after quitting the reality show in 2015, Michele has been building a name in the acting world, landing roles in recent releases like Til Death Do Us Part starring Taye Diggs, Annie Ilonzeh, and Being Mary Jane’s Steven Bishop, and True to the Game, whose cast included the late Nelsan Ellis.

“I’m always happy to work with seasoned actors. I need it,” Michele tells Et of sharing the screen with 39-year-old Ellis, who died from heart failure in July. “I’m learning and growing every day, and when you get to work with people that are that good, it's amazing.”

Sharing the screen with Ellis pushed Michele to work harder. “He brought some of my best acting out of me,” she says.

Box Office Surge Ends as 3 Films Vie for Top Spot

Box Office Surge Ends as 3 Films Vie for Top Spot
New entry “American Made” (Universal) and holdovers “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” (20th Century Fox) and “It” (Warner Bros.). are basically tied at the top for weekend box office #1, with estimates placing all within $310,000. Any of the three could emerge on top when Sunday’s actual numbers are compiled after the weekend.

That’s good news for “It” in its fourth weekend (now headed even higher than the $325 million that seemed likely a couple days ago), more mixed for the opening of Tom Cruise’s latest film and the holdover for the expensive second release in the “Kingsman” franchise.

What is not good news is the sudden 20 per cent-plus drop in box office total revenues for the weekend. After three post-Labor Day stanzas where “It” propelled a strong resurgence that gave hope that the mediocre summer’s returns might improve, the current results suggest that the year will end down

It Returns to Top the Box Office with $17.3M

It Returns to Top the Box Office with $17.3M
The blockbuster Stephen King adaptation It returned to take the top spot this weekend, after being knocked off by Kingsman: The Golden Circle last weekend, winning with an estimated $17.3 million, followed closely behind by newcomer American Made in second with $17.01 million and last weekend's winner Kingsman: The Golden Circle with $17 million. With all newcomers expected to underperform at the box office this weekend, it was believed to be quite the close race, which turned out to be true, with the top three spots separated by just $300,000. Since these movies are so close together in today's estimates, it's possible, if not likely, that the top three movies may switch spots when the actual numbers are released tomorrow.

Box Office Mojo reports that the It remake dropped 90 theaters in its fourth frame at the box office, bringing its theater count down to 3,917, but it still earned a respectable $4,419 per-screen average, bringing its domestic total to $291.1 million,

Weekend #1 Up for Grabs after Record September at the Box Office Comes to an End

Weekend #1 Up for Grabs after Record September at the Box Office Comes to an End
As a record September comes to an end, it's a race for number one with three films separated by a mere $310k. Based on estimates, it's a return to #1 for WB and New Line's It, but hot on its heels is Universal's American Made along with Fox's Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Otherwise, Sony's Flatliners debuted on life support, Novus's Til Death Do Us Part found its way into the top ten and Pure Flix's A Question of Faith finished on the outside looking in. With just over $300k separating number one and number three on this weekend's box office chart, first place currently belongs to WB and New Line's It, which is back on top after last weekend saw the killer clown finish in the runner up position. With an estimated $17.3 million, the record-breaking horror has now topped $291 million domestically and will spend Sunday enjoying its third weekend out of

'Til Death Do Us Part': Film Review

'Til Death Do Us Part': Film Review
If you didn’t already know that October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, then Til Death Do Us Part will serve as a potent reminder that with support and determination, abusive relationships don’t need to be endured, they can be terminated. Billed as a psychological thriller, the film actually plays more like a tense melodrama, a hybrid formula likely to draw a more diverse audience to theaters and assure continued interest in home entertainment formats.

Writer-director Christopher B. Stokes took on Til Death Do Us Part specifically to highlight the courage and determination of domestic violence survivors, a noble aspiration that...

'American Made' and 'Flatliners' Target Spots in the Weekend Box Office Top Five

'American Made' and 'Flatliners' Target Spots in the Weekend Box Office Top Five
As of the end of the day Wednesday, the month-to-date gross is less than $6 million shy of becoming the largest September ever. Much of the month's $620+ million is thanks to the record performance from It, which has grossed over $272 million domestically and $500 million globally. The month should become the largest September ever by the end of day today and this weekend offers one last chance to add to the total with new releases including Tom Cruise's American Made and Sony's Flatliners remake hitting theaters. Mojo's weekend forecast has the top twelve bringing in around $89 million, which would mean the month is likely to finish over $690 million, though just a bit shy of becoming the first September ever to hit $700 million. A pair of holdovers are likely to repeat atop the weekend box office beginning with Fox's Kingsman: The Golden Circle, which should pull in somewhere around $19.5 million, again finishing

Tom Cruise’s ‘American Made’ Battles ‘Kingsman 2,’ ‘It’ at Weekend Box Office

Tom Cruise’s ‘American Made’ Battles ‘Kingsman 2,’ ‘It’ at Weekend Box Office
Tom Cruise has arrived to cap a record September at the box office. But it won’t end with a bang.

He’s starring in this weekend’s widest launch, Universal’s “American Made,” which is expected to land in the low to mid-teens at 3,023 locations. While that’s certainly not ideal for an action feature with a major movie star attached, the film’s finances are partially bolstered by having already earned more than $60 million overseas. Still, there’s a good chance that it will be overshadowed by the recent string of R-rated releases including “It” and “Kingsman: The Golden Circle.”

#TakeAKnee: ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ ‘The X-Files,’ ‘Star Trek’ and More Join the Movement
Shonda Rhimes, Gillian Anderson, and David Duchovny are the latest stars to kneel in solidarity to protest racial inequality and police injustice in the United States.

The hashtag, the linked arms, and the kneel mimic the actions taken by NFL players during the National Anthem, as players paid homage to former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who began the protest movement last football season. The peaceful protests caused controversy that was further aggravated by President Donald Trump, following his remarks at an Alabama political rally.

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out, he’s fired. He’s fired,'” Trump said.

In response, people everywhere, not just on the football field, have begun to show their support, including some of TV’s biggest faces. The cast of “Grey’s Anatomy,

Will Tom Cruise's American Made Fly High at the Box Office?

Will Tom Cruise's American Made Fly High at the Box Office?
After New Line Cinema's It remake shook the box office out of its horrendous summer slump, it seems those glory days may be already over, with what looks to be a rather weak showing in theaters this weekend. Universal's American Made, Sony's Flatliners remake, PureFlix's A Question of Faith and Novus' Til Death Do Us Part will all be vying for the box office crown, along with an expanding Battle of the Sexes. But it seems like, despite a strong critical showing from American Made, Kingsman 2 will likely repeat atop the box office with a lukewarm $19.7 million, followed by American Made with $16.4 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that American Made will debut in roughly 3,000 theaters, while the Flatliners remake will only arrive in 2,200 theaters, although no theater count estimates were given for Til Death Do Us Part or A Question of Faith. Fox Searchlight's Battle Of the Sexes,

Flatliners Remake Character Posters Stare Death in the Face

Flatliners Remake Character Posters Stare Death in the Face
With just under one month left until Sony Pictures' Flatliners remake hits theaters, the studio has released four new character posters that shows completely different sides to the main characters. The posters feature Ellen Page's Courtney, Diego Luna's Ray, Nina Dobrev's Marlo and Kiersey Clemons' Sophia. While each of these characters has a seemingly normal expression, these one-sheets literally show another side of them, and it's clear they're truly terrified.

The posters surfaced on the Flatliners Twitter earlier today, although it remains uncertain if we'll get any more footage between now and the September 29 release date. The first Flatliners trailer didn't debut until mid-June, and with the release just a few weeks away, hopefully there will be more footage for fans to explore, before this reboot hits theaters. For fans of the original movie, there will be a familiar face involved, although he isn't seen on any of these posters.
