Greenwich Entertainment Acquires Tribeca True Crime Doc ‘The Phantom’ About Wrongful Execution Case, Doug Liman Joins As Exec Producer

EXCLUSIVE: Greenwich Entertainment has acquired North American distribution rights to The Phantom by BAFTA-winning director Patrick Forbes (The Force). The Phantom tells the story of a dark episode in the history of American justice, the execution of Carlos DeLuna who was arrested in 1993 aged 21 for the murder of Wanda Lopez. DeLuna protested his innocence until his execution, declaring that it was another Carlos who committed the crime. The prosecution insisted that this other Carlos was a “phantom’ and didn’t exist. Through interviews with witnesses, Carlos’s family members, and legal experts, the film asks whether the judicial system wrongly executed an innocent man, and whether a poor Hispanic youth had any chance within a justice system and a society that by it’s actions seemed to regard him as disposable.

‘Chaos Walking’: Tom Holland & Daisy Ridley Can’t Save Doug Liman’s Uninspired Dystopian Sci-Fi Thriller [Review]

For a sci-fi dystopian thriller about dark secrets and not being able to conceal your inner-most thoughts—and hide, you know, secrets— Lionsgate’s “Chaos Walking” is extremely uninspired and even unimaginative. Based on the first novel in the “Chaos Walking” series, “The Knife of Never Letting Go,” by Patrick Ness, the film’s setting is the future, and a planet that humans have colonized because Earth’s environment is no longer sustainable.

Did Daniel Craig's James Bond Copy The Bourne Identity? Doug Liman Talks Legacy Of His Matt Damon Film

Matt Damon was already a well-known name in Hollywood pre-2002, but that year, he became a bonafide action star when he debuted as Jason Bourne in The Bourne Identity, which was directed by Doug Liman. 2002 was also the year that Pierce Brosnan’s tenure as James Bond ended with Die Another Day, and four years later, the Bond franchise was rebooted, with Daniel Craig taking over the 007 mantle in Casino Royale. With a darker tone and edgier, more realistic action, many noted how similar Casino Royale was to the first two Bourne movies. Is this a case of copying?

Doug Liman has more 'confidence' in space movie

Doug Liman has "more confidence" about making a movie in space since shooting 'Locked Down' in deserted London. The 55-year-old filmmaker is pleased that PH van Sandwijk's idea for a low-budget, hastily-assembled pandemic heist thriller paid off and he's now got more faith that the producer's other "crazy" idea - which also involves Tom Cruise, Elon Musks SpaceX and NASA - will work out too.

Doug Liman Wants A “Character-Driven” Sequel To ‘Edge Of Tomorrow’ That Doesn’t Try To Go Bigger

“Edge of Tomorrow” is an interesting case-study in box office misfires that find critical acclaim and a second life after they leave the theaters. While the studio probably wasn’t happy with the overall box office performance of “Edge of Tomorrow,” which would go on to be known as “Live Die Repeat,” you can’t argue that the goodwill the film has received from fans and critics has propelled the idea of a sequel into almost getting made a number of times. So, what is keeping the sequel from getting the coveted green light? Doug Liman has the answer. He thinks, at least.

‘The Bourne Identity’ Director Doug Liman Still Doesn’t Know How to Feel About Bond Copying Bourne

Doug Liman changed the game with The Bourne Identity. The director’s grounded vision for what many eventually came to see as “America’s James Bond” influenced action movies for years, and arguably still continues to do so. When James Bond was rebooted with Casino Royale and beyond, audiences and critics spotted an unmistakable Bourne influence. More inner conflict, more brutal hand-to-hand combat, and the gadgets and toys flew out the window. 007 became a spy in the modern world, similar to the tone Liman struck with his Robert Ludlum adaptation.
