Comedians Whitney Cummings, 31, and Kerri Kenney-Silver, 44, got a little rowdy with Sandy, coining themselves the "Jackson a**holes." An E! News eyewitness says the gals were spotted at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar around 9 p.m. on Thursday for some music and drinks. "There were probably six to 10 women in the group. It appeared to be a ladies night. They just came in to listen to the band [Southern Soul Allstars]," the eyewitness said.

TriStar Acquires Jodie Foster’s Money Monster

26 July 2014 5:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In terms of performers-turned-filmmakers, they don’t come much bigger than Jodie Foster and George Clooney. Between them, they are responsible for some of the more interesting and satisfying TV and film projects of the last few years – from episodes of Orange Is The New Black and House Of Cards (Foster), to movies like Good Night And Good Luck and The Ides Of March (Clooney). The prospect of these two talents collaborating is an exciting one, to say the least – so it comes as no surprise that Money Monster is already heading straight for ‘highly anticipated’ status, with studios clambering for a piece of the action. TriStar now seems to have won that battle, with a financing package of $30 million.

Written by Jim Kouf, Alan Difiore and Jamie Linden, the timely story sees Clooney play the host of a financial TV show famous for insider trading tips. When a viewer »

Exclusive: Melanie Lynskey Talks Happy Christmas

25 July 2014 4:09 PM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Melanie Lynskey has a conjurer’s ability to mine the vulnerability of characters without sinking into sad-sack caricature. Whether as a troubled teenager in her stirring debut “Heavenly Creatures,” George Clooney’s younger sister in “Up in the Air,” Matt Damon’s wife in “The Informant!,” a fresh-out-of-rehab mother in “Win Win,” or a recent divorcee working her way through a rebound romance with a much younger man in the underrated “Hello I Must Be Going,” Lynskey always serves the story without ever blending into the scenery. Her latest film is “Happy Christmas,” from writer-director (and in this case co-star) Joe Swanberg. In it, the New Zealand-born actress gets to use her native  [ Read More ]

Money Monster lands at Tristar

25 July 2014 3:32 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Tom Rothman’s Tristar Productions has taken a major project off the independent table and acquired worldwide rights to the thriller in which Jodie Foster will direct George Clooney.

Jamie Linden wrote the screenplay about a broadcaster caught in a tangle of high finance lies after he is held at gunpoint live on air.

The project had been set up at Im Global before CEO Stuard Ford put it into turnaround.

Alan Difore and Jim Kouf wrote an earlier draft of the script. Sources in the business have drawn parallels with Sidney Lumet’s 1976 drama Network.

Dan Dubiecki and Lara Alameddine developed the project with Foster and will produce together with Clooney and his Smokehouse Pictures partner Grant Heslov.

Principal photography is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2015.

“It is impossible to resist saying that we at TriStar hit the talent jackpot today,” said TriStar Productions chairman Tom Rothman. »

25 July 2014 1:57 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

TriStar Pictures will finance and release “Money Monster,” starring George Clooney as a stock picker held hostage on TV.

Jodi Foster is directing the project from Jamie Linden’s script, in which the hostage taker is a man who lost his money after following the tout’s advice — and threatens to kill him if the cameras are turned off.

Plans are for production in the spring after Clooney completes shooting on “Hail Caesar” for the Coens.

Producers are The Allegiance Theater’s Daniel Dubiecki, Lara Alameddine and Smokehouse’s Clooney and Grant Heslov. “Money Monster” has a budget of $30 million.

Clooney will be seen next in Brad Bird’s “Tomorrowland,” which Disney will release in May.

Foster, who’s been attached to “Money Monster” since 2012, has directed “The Beaver” starring Mel Gibson, “Home for the Holidays” and “Little Man Tate.”

25 July 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

News that Ben Affleck will play Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice sparked some serious backlash last year, but given the recent pictures of him as the hero, we're convinced that Ben will nail his role as Bruce Wayne. Don't believe us? Drawing on his onscreen experience, his proven talents, and his real-life roles as dad and director, we're sharing 11 reasons why Ben Affleck will be a Batman to remember: 1. He Has Superhero Experience . . . Ben made his superhero debut back in 2003 when he donned a red latex suit for Daredevil, and he suited up again in 2006 for Hollywoodland as George Reeves, one of the actors who played Superman. 2. . . . But He's Come a Long Way Since Daredevil Ok, so maybe Daredevil wasn't the most successful superhero film, but that movie came out 10 years ago. (And, for the record, so did Gigli.) Over the past decade, Ben has raised his acting game, »

New Before I Go To Sleep trailer features Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth

25 July 2014 6:04 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Earlier this month a trailer hit for the Rowan Joffe thriller Before I Go To Sleep. Joffe was responsible for writing the restrained character study The American, starring George Clooney, and I really dug the deliberate pace of that story. This material is based on a book by S.J. Watson, but it seems to be in the same stylistic vein. This new trailer also gives us a bit of a different vibe as well. Take a look: Oddly enough, I really dig the first trailer a lot more.

A Most Wanted Man – The Review

24 July 2014 6:54 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

John LeCarre’s A Most Wanted Man has the author’s usual trademarks: unique characters conveyed with shades of gray, an intricate and creative plot, and an appreciation for the complexities of international politics. The last LeCarre film adaption Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, with its meticulous Cold War details and labyrinthine cloak-and-dagger plot, required the viewer to maneuver a dense story through many twists and knots. A Most Wanted Man is more straightforward, yet no less engrossing and it’s anchored by a powerful performance from Phillip Seymour Hoffman in his last role.

The setting is Hamburg Germany – where some of the 9-11 hijackers had planned their attacks. Here’s where Issa Dobrygin (Grigori Dobrygin), a young, sickly, frightened Muslim from Chechnya (or is he?) washes up on shore seeking refuge after escaping from Russia. He enlists the help of mother and son Muslim émigrés from Turkey who, in turn »
