Top 10 dogs on filmTop 10 dogs on filmAmanda Wood8/26/2016 10:00:00 Am

We humans have been sharing the silver screen with all manner of beasts for as long as movies have existed.

There are far too many movie dogs to include in this list, so »

Locarno — He may have played one of the most beloved fictitious Commanders-in-Chief in recent cinematic history, but back in the real world, Bill Pullman is hoping to let Hillary Clinton get on with the job.

“In this day and age, I do support Hillary Clinton very strongly,” he stated during a Q&A session at Switzerland’s lakeside Locarno Film Festival, where the 62-year-old “Independence Day” star was honored with the Moët & Chandon Excellence Award in recognition of his 30-year film career.

Barry L. Levy will direct “Stranglehold,” a movie about the Boston Strangler Task Force with Todd Garner and Sean Robins producing through their Broken Road company.

The Solution Entertainment Group will finance the project and produce “Stranglehold.” Myles Nestel is producing with Lisa Wilson, and Stephen Emery is executive producing.

Levy is set to make his directorial debut and will helm from his own script. His screenwriting credits include “Vantage Point” and “Paranoia.”

“Stranglehold” tells the untold true story of the Boston Strangler Task Force, which was assembled as a special unit by the Massachusetts Attorney General to stop the serial killer after more than a dozen unsolved murders in the early 1960s. What no one could have predicted was that this group, led by a disgraced Boston Police Detective and a Hollywood psychic, would unearth an even more heinous crime.

Producers are planning to begin casting immediately.

Director/ writer/ actor Gary Marshall dies at age 81

22 July 2016 9:49 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

On Tuesday July 19, Hollywood lost a giant in the world of comedy with the passing of beloved director/writer/producer/actor Gary Marshall at the age of 81. While most of the news outlets focused in on his considerable work in television (he practically owned Tuesday nights in the 1970’s with his “Happy Days” empire), this site would like to salute Mr. Marshall’s work on both sides of the camera.

After impressive writing credits on many of the classic sitcoms of the 1960’s, it was inevitable that the movie studios would tap him to contribute to several screenplays. The first was produced in 1968, a marriage comedy starring James Garner and Debbie Reynolds, How Sweet It Is. A youth-oriented romantic comedy starring Jacqueline Bisset, The Grasshopper, was released in 1970. TV triumphs quickly followed, so Marshall’s movie career was put on hold for more than a dozen years. 1982 was the year »

Pretty Woman Director Garry Marshall Dead At 81

20 July 2016 11:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Garry Marshall, the celebrated filmmaker and producer behind such films as Pretty Woman and The Princess Diaries, has died aged 81, sources have confirmed.

Marshall passed away Tuesday in Burbank, California following complications from a stroke and later pneumonia.

Known for his knack of firing young up-and-comers to stardom, Marshall was instrumental in putting both Richard Gere and Julia Roberts on the map via Pretty Woman – the latter nabbed an Oscar nomination for Best Actress – while The Princess Diaries ensured Anne Hathaway broke onto the scene as an exciting new talent. Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Eve and the recent Mother’s Day are examples of the director’s final movies.

His work extended beyond the silver screen, too, penning scripts and overseeing production on both Mork and Mindy and Happy Days. Of course, the latter birthed a fan favorite in Henry Winkler’s the Fonz, and for a brief time during its peak, »
