Did Ryan Gosling Get A Tattoo of His Daughter’s Name? (Photo)

If we didn't already know Ryan Gosling would be a sweet dad, we do now! The new father stepped out in Los Angeles on Friday with what appears to be a new tattoo in honor of his daughter Esmeralda Amanda. Although it remains to be seen if the ink is pen or more permanent, the actor ran errands with the baby’s nickname "Esme" written on his left fingers.  Dressed casually in a white tee shirt, black leather jacket, hoodie and baseball hat Eva Mendes’s other half seemed like he was trying to go unnoticed.

DiCaprio to Produce Gritty 'Robin Hood: Origins' Movie

27 February 2015 4:33 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way production company is developing Robin Hood: Origins, which was written by Joby Harold (Knights of the Round Table). Deadline describes the project as, "a gritty version of the rogue do-gooder Robin Hood." The project isn't set up at a studio quite yet, but there are also two separate competing Robin Hood movies in development at other studios.

Disney is developing Nottingham & Hood, written by Brandon Barker, which is described as a revisionist take on the Robin Hood legend. The project is said to have the same tone as the studio's Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, which the studio intends to spawn a franchise from. Sony Pictures also acquired a Robin Hood pitch in October from writers Cory Goodman (The Last Witch Hunter) and Jeremy Lott (Lore), after a heated bidding war between Sony, Paramount and Working Title Films. That project will set up a Marvel-style shared universe, »

Robin Hood: Origins script being shopped around by Knights of the Round Table writer

27 February 2015 6:27 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Had enough of origin stories? Well, the man behind Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur movie Knights of the Round Table is shopping around his new script Robin Hood: Origins.

According to Deadline, Joby Harold has written a “dark and gritty” take on the infamous character. At present no studios are interested in developing it, but Sony are planning on a Robin Hood movie and could be interested in using Harold’s script as its basis. The Sony plan is to create a shared universe type franchise based on Robin Hood characters, similar to Marvel’s superhero movies.

Disney are also working on a Robin Hood movie entitled Nottingham & Hood, but its unlikely they will be interested in Harold’s script as their vision is to be more like Pirates of the Caribbean.

Robin Hood last graced the silver screen in Ridley Scott’s 2010 effort starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, »

Leonardo DiCaprio Aiming For Robin Hood: Origins

27 February 2015 4:54 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Cliff Owen/APdo

Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding through the glen. Robin Hood, Robin Hood, will have a film or three, again.

Yes, the legendary hero who robbed from the rich, gave to the poor, and once had a soundtrack by Bryan Adams looks to be raising his bow to the big screen once more. The only concern is which studio will be getting there first. News has broken today from The Tracking Board that Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company, Appian Way, and producer, Joby Harold have a cunning plan to produce Robin Hood: Origins, which will (if the title doesn’t give it way) look at how the outlaw came to be.

Origins isn’t the only entry on the list, though. As well as the DiCaprio/Harold’s take, Disney have Pirates of the Caribbean-ey, Nottingham & Hood in their to-do pile, and Sony also have the simple but not very effective, »

Leonardo DiCaprio developing Robin Hood: Origins

26 February 2015 11:13 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A further Robin Hood origin story is in development, and Leonardo DiCaprio is involved...

In what amounts to the third competing attempt to revive the adventures of Robin Hood into a new post-Avengers world, Leonardo DiCaprio and Joby Harold have joined forces to bring new life to the Princes of Thieves and his merry men. Sherwood Forest is getting awfully crowded these days…

As first broken by The Tracking Board, DiCaprio’s Appian Way production company is teaming with Harold’s Safehouse Pictures production company to produce a spec script Harold has entitled Robin Hood: Origins. As you might expect, it is a new detailed origin story for the bandit of Sherwood that with its current title is just begging for franchising capabilities.

Harold has previously contributed on Edge Of Tomorrow as an executive producer and as one of its many writers, as well as a writer on Warner Bros' upcoming Guy Ritchie reimagining, »

Julia Stiles: "The roles get more interesting as you get older"

25 February 2015 4:01 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Julia Stiles has insisted that she is "excited about maturing" as an actress.

The star told Digital Spy and other press that roles for women "get more interesting as you get older".

"My career is changing, but for the better," she said. "I think I'm maturing as a person and an actress; I'd like to think so, but the roles get more interesting as you get older, despite what I've heard other people say. I'm excited about maturing."

In Lifetime's new series Blue, Stiles plays a single mother who leads a secret double life as a high-class escort.

The star revealed that the show - originally a web series - "got racier as we made more episodes".

"I still am very shy and I get very nervous and self-conscious with those scenes, especially as time goes on," she admitted.

The Calloway Way – Why The New Alien Movie Might Disappoint

22 February 2015 5:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week Neil Calloway is wary of Neill Blomkamp’s Alien film…

When Neill Blomkamp released some of the artwork for his proposed Alien film, I was impressed – concept art for science fiction films is often better than the films themselves – and mentally filed it in my “great unmade films” drawer. It sat there alongside the Gladiator sequel scripted by Nick Cave, in which Russell Crowe’s character is resurrected and fights in various battles throughout history, Return of the Jedi directed by David Lynch (he was offered it, and turned it down because he did not want to helm a science fiction film where he was not in control of the material; ironically his next film would be an adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune. I cannot imagine what Lynch’s version of Jabba’s Palace would look like) and the unmade Jurassic Park sequel that featured dinosaurs, obviously, »

Arresting Development: Top Ten Sheriffs in the Movies

19 February 2015 10:04 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the vast history of cinema the profession of law enforcement has been portrayed heavily and made its mark on the big screen in both dramatic and comical fodder. Whether it be straight up cops and robbers or crooked officers on the take in gangster flicks or ant-hero gun-slinging loners trying to buck the system the presence of crime-busting cads never fail to add compelling, if not at times over-exaggerated, insight into the world of law-enforcing personalities.

The one element of the law-enforcing community that seems somewhat limited but still registers mightily in some cinematic arenas is the concept of the sheriff. Sheriffs do cast a prominent shadow in all sorts of fields in the movies: westerns, medieval times, contemporary country car-chasing farces and even some urban melodramas.

In Arresting Developments: Top Ten Sheriffs in the Movies we will take a look at some of the notable on-screen sheriffs in »

Watch: New Trailer For Russell Crowe’s Directorial Debut ‘The Water Diviner’ With Olga Kurylenko & Jai Courtney

13 February 2015 10:30 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Now, I'm no marketing person, but I'd humbly suggest that "The Water Diviner" probably isn't the most exciting title in the world for a movie. Nevertheless, it's the one Russell Crowe is going with for his feature directorial debut. And after opening in a number of overseas territories, the picture is now coming stateside, and a new trailer has arrived. Crowe also appears in front of the camera, alongside Olga Kurylenko, Jai Courtney, Cem Yılmaz and Yılmaz Erdoğan, in this historical tale about an Australian man who travels to Turkey four years after the Battle of Gallipoli to locate his three missing sons, one of whom was reported missing in action. So expect some sweeping vistas, wrenching emotion and more, as Crowe tells his first big-screen story. "The Water Diviner" opens on April 24th. Watch below. »

New Trailer For Russell Crowe’s Directorial Debut The Water Diviner

13 February 2015 10:28 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. has unveiled an all-new trailer for Russell Crowe’s passion project and directorial debut, The Water Diviner.

Set during the fallout of World War I, the Australian drama stars Crowe himself as Joshua Connor, a grieving father who sets forth to Turkey in order to locate the whereabouts of his three missing sons, who were last known to have fought within the infamous Gallipoli campaign of 1915. Taking place on the  Gallipoli peninsula, the battle is widely considered to be one of the most defining moment in Turkish history.

But for Crowe’s protagonist, the conflict will underpin a much more personal, emotionally harrowing journey, as the footage above attests. Joining the Oscar-winner for the genre epic are Olga Kurylenko, Yilmaz Erdogan, Cem Yilmaz, Jai Courtney, Steve Bastoni, Isabel Lucas, Ryan Corr, Dan Wyllie, Damon Herriman, Jacqueline McKenzie, Michael Dorman, Megan Gale, and Dylan Georgiades.
