West Side Story (Steven Spielberg, 2020)

In a 2004 article about Elmer Bernstein, published after Bernstein's passing, Todd Haynes mentioned a Freud project:
Far From Heaven director Todd Haynes, in remarks filled with emotion, said that his film had been "graced beyond belief" by Bernstein's music. He said they had talked about collaborating on a film about Sigmund Freud.
So a Freud project is definitely something Haynes has been wanting to do for many years, perhaps even going further back than when he and Elmer Bernstein talked about it. My guess is that this is what the Amazon project will be.

What happened to all of Amazon's films after Wonder Wheel being self-distributed?

(The fact that they might actually not be so forthright and stingy about this new policy is a good thing, clearly, but I'm just surprised to see it change so quickly)

Greengrass lending his style to a Breivak-related film sounds pretty repulsive, but I guess it's one less movie I have to see. But then I liked Campos's pointless Christine Chabbuck film from last year, so we'll see!

Peter Strickland's In Fabric
Peter Strickland (Berberian Sound Studio) will direct ghost story In Fabric starring Oscar-nominated actress Marianne Jean-Baptiste (Secrets & Lies, Broadchurch).

The director is reteaming with producing partner Andy Starke (Free Fire) on the project after the pair previously collaborated on The Duke Of Burgundy. Starke developed the film in association with Ian Benson at Blue Bear Film and Television and will produce via his production company Rook Films.

In Fabric, also written by Strickland, is set against the backdrop of a busy winter sales period in a department store and follows the life of a cursed dress as it passes from person to person, with devastating consequences.

Not really in production so much as "almost released," but apparently Mel Brooks has sanctioned and is appearing in a CGI animated remake of Blazing Saddles?!?

The book was pretty lousy. Here's hoping Perkins can add something interesting to it.

Netflix’s Dan Gilroy-Jake Gyllenhaal Film Sets Ensemble.

The director of Nightcrawler and Roman J Israel Esq is currently shooting his next film about "...big money art and mega-collectors who pay a high price when art collides with commerce."

5 years after his brilliant film 'Das merkwürdige Kätzchen' premiered at Berlin Film Fest, Ramon Zürcher has a new project in the works!

When I saw Das merkwürdige Kätzchen at Leeds International Film Festival in 2013, I was so intrigued by it, I changed my schedule to see it a second time. I've kept tabs on the film maker ever since. Glad to finally hear some news from him.

Hazanavicius' next film will be a family fantasy starring Omar Sy and, who else, Berenice Bejo

It's trivial but Spielberg doing something for Lionsgate just does not compute.
