Douglas Booth: 'I'm a 90-year-old trapped in a young body'

27 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

He’s mates with Miley Cyrus and can play anyone from Bullingdon boy to Boy George. Just don’t call actor Douglas Booth handsome

Douglas Booth is trying to dissuade a dog from having sex with his leg. “No humping, Barry – I knew you when you were a puppy!” Booth has evidence, too: video footage of the young actor in a vest, cradling the photographer’s whippet on a previous shoot, found its way on to the internet two years ago, its Athena poster cuteness delighting teenage girls around the world. It’s probably for the best that this sequel isn’t being filmed.

Paul Feig Talks Spy, Jason Statham, and Test Screenings

26 March 2015 6:44 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When a big movie studio is willing to show a film months before its release, they know they have the goods. That was definitely the case when 20th Century Fox world premiered writer-director Paul Feig’s comedy Spy at this year’s SXSW Film Festival.  The potential franchise-starter features Melissa McCarthy as Susan Cooper, a CIA analyst who goes into the field for the very first time after her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid. Loaded with an all-star cast (Jason StathamRose ByrneMiranda HartBobby CannavaleAllison JanneyPeter Serafinowicz, and Morena Baccarin), one of the main reasons Spy is so great is that each supporting character has a moment to shine, and Statham completely knocks it out of the park in his first big studio comedy. During the premiere, the crowd was laughing so loud I missed lines of dialogue between Statham and McCarthy. Trust me, »

15 Things You Didn’t Know About Emilia Clarke

24 March 2015 2:51 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Victoria Will/AP

Emilia Clarke’s rapid rise to the global stage has been remarkable. In just four years, she has been launched from roles in minor productions, to worldwide fame as Game of Thrones heroine Daenerys Targaryen. Her success has gone hand-in-hand with the HBO series’ enormous success.

In 2010 – just one year after graduating from Drama Centre London – the 28-year-old was cast as the star of Game of Thrones before the first season had begun filming. Now as the show approaches its fifth series, Clarke’s career is continuing to blossom, with several major roles lined up.

This summer, Clarke will feature as Sarah Connor in the highly-anticipated Terminator Genisys, alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger. It will mark her biggest film role so far, with her only other mainstream appearance coming in Dom Hemmingway with Jude Law in 2013.

She will also star in indie film Voice From The Stone, and Me Before You »

Review: Paul Feig and Melissa McCarthy strike gold again with genre spoof 'Spy'

22 March 2015 4:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Austin - When "Bridesmaids" was in production, I visited the set, and it seemed to me that the collaborators working on the film were flying happily under the radar, no pressure on them beyond whatever pressure they put on themselves. When they brought the film to SXSW for a "work-in-progress" screening, it absolutely destroyed the audience, and Universal suddenly realized what a hit they had on their hands. Seeing Paul Feig onstage last Sunday at the Paramount to introduce his new film as a writer/director, I was struck by how far he's come even since I met him on the set of "Unaccompanied Minors." He's always been wildly funny and very smart, and if you haven't read his book, "Superstud," you are doing it wrong. It is a tremendous piece of writing. His work on "Freaks & Geeks" is also beautiful and nuanced. But with "Bridesmaids," he was launched into that rarefied A-list territory, »

Lionsgate Takes Robin Hood: Origins

20 March 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Joby Harold is quickly becoming the go-to guy for medieval adventures. Guy Ritchie is currently shooting Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur from his screenplay, and now Lionsgate has acquired another promising reimagining from the up-and-coming scribe – Robin Hood: Origins.

No plot details yet, though Harold’s take will of course follow the famed thief who stole from the rich and gave to the poor.

Appian Way will produce thepic alongside Safehouse Pictures’ Harold and Tory Tunnell.

Robin Hood may be making a comeback. Though the last major title to bear that name was Ridley Scott’s ill-received 2010 take, Sony has acquired a pitch for Hood, while Disney is working on turning Nottingham & Hood into a movie. Whether Harold’s take will be dark and brooding or take a lighter approach to the material is one key question. Origin stories for classic characters are all the rage these days, from »

Robin Hood: Origins script picked up by Lionsgate

20 March 2015 3:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A new Robin Hood movie will go ahead after Lionsgate entered negotiations to acquire the Joby Harold-penned script for Robin Hood: Origins.

According to Deadline, Origins is an "edgier" take on the story of the Nottingham outlaw who stole from the rich to give to the poor.

Robin Hood: Origins is being produced by Harold with Appian Way and Tory Tunnell under the Safehouse Pictures name.

Origins is one of several Robin Hood-based scripts in production in Hollywood, with Disney working on revisionist version Nottingham & Hood and Sony owning a script for Hood, which is described as more of an action film take.

Harold has also written the script for the upcoming Arthurian epic Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur, which is directed by Guy Ritchie and stars Charlie Hunnam and Jude Law.

Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur will be released on July 22, 2016. »

Lionsgate Lands ‘Robin Hood: Origins’ From Joby Harold

19 March 2015 2:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate has acquired the script “Robin Hood: Origins,” penned by “Knights of the Round Table’s” Joby Harold.

Appian Way will produce along with Harold and Tory Tunnell through their Safehouse Pictures banner.

How exactly this origin tale will unfold is still unknown, other than it will follow the thief who stole from the rich in order to give to the poor.

Hollywood has much appreciated the story of Robin Hood over the years, with pics ranging from 1938’s “The Adventures of Robin Hood,” starring Errol Flynn, to 1991’s “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves,” with Kevin Costner.

Sony recently bought the pitch “Hood” from scribes Cory Goodman and Jeremy Lott, and Disney is developing “Nottingham & Hood.”

Harold’s “Knights of the Round Table” is currently filming and stars Charlie Hunnam and Jude Law, with Guy Ritchie directing. Harold is repped by CAA.

Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.

Spy Review [SXSW 2015]

18 March 2015 4:57 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Melissa McCarthy may be America’s comedic sweetheart, but her filmography has been extremely hit-or-miss as of late. Where The Heat is a riotous take on hilarious buddy-cop antics with a female-driven spin, Tammy’s down-on-her-luck optimism barely musters a single chuckle-worthy joke throughout the entire film. But when McCarthy and filmmaker Paul Feig work together (The Heat/Bridesmaids), something magical always seems to happen, and in that same fashion, Spy ends up being another winning combination of Feig’s jovial cinematics and McCarthy’s sweetly bullish comedic stylings. Feig’s screenplay is smarter than the average spoof, McCarthy doesn’t overpower audiences, and a wonderful supporting cast ensures that every character scores a few laughs while kicking some terrorist ass along the way.

The film follows Susan Cooper (McCarthy), a desk-chained overseer who has an obvious crush on her assigned field agent, Bradley Fine (Jude Law). But when her partner’s identity is compromised, »

Character Posters Revealed For Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham & Jude Law In ‘Spy’

18 March 2015 1:32 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I just caught up with the Red Band trailer for Spy, which I’ve also included below for you, and it’s looking pretty good. Thankfully, the marvellous McCarthy also appears to be back on form when it’s released on 5th June for movie goers in the UK.

Directed by BridesmaidsPaul Feig, Melissa McCarthy plays Susan Cooper, who’s an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst and the unsung hero behind the Agency’s most dangerous missions. But when her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Jason Statham) is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster.

It’s obviously all a little ridicolous but what else would we expect? There’s a top cast that includes the three below alongside Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Allison Janney, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Miranda Hart. »

L.A.'s Secret Designer to Celebs, VIP's and Artists is An Artist Himself

This story first appeared in the March 27 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Founded in 2013, Blaine Halvorson's Madeworn line includes handmade men's and women's bags and shoes and seasonless clothing with the historical, romantic quality of, say, a prairie dweller's couture (from $420 for clothing to as much as $12,000 for a bag). The pared-down silhouettes of faded-but-luxe fabrics from the 1800s have caught the discerning eye of Brad Pitt, Jude Law, Diane Keaton and Kanye West. A leather skirt, for instance, is flared and gathered - and made of much distressed leather - so it's
