Brett Ratner adapting story based on Goodfellas’ Henry Hill

Henry Hill's story was told in Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas - but not all of it...

The story of mobster Henry Hill was infamously told in Martin Scorsese’s stunning Goodfellas. He was played in that movie by Ray Liotta, but it didn’t cover Hill’s full story. Nor did the other movie based around Hill's life, that was released at the same time, the Steve Martin/Rick Moranis comedy, My Blue Heaven.

For as the Espn television movie Playing For the Mob charted, Hill was also involved in a scandal where he tried to fix basketball games in Boston in the late 1970s. And now there are plans to bring that story to the big screen.

Brett Ratner is linked to this one, with his RatPac Entertainment set to bring the story to the movies. It’s unclear as of yet if Ratner has earmarked »

Baskets Is Not Quite Like Anything You’ve Ever Seen

21 January 2016 6:18 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Baskets, about the existential crisis of a rodeo clown, is a bizarre show with a great pedigree that won’t be to everyone’s liking. I watched the first five episodes and still haven’t entirely warmed to it, but my initial impression could be as likely to entice people as scare them away: It plays as if an old Steve Martin picaresque-dumbass movie like The Jerk were done in the style of an earnest, realistic, rather dour indie drama.  This seems inevitable once you learn that the series’ creators are Louis C.K., Zach Galifianakis, and Jonathan Krisel of Portlandia. Galifianakis stars as Chip Baskets, who studies clowning in France — and en Français, yet — then returns to the United States with a beautiful but cold French wife named Penelope (Sabina Sciubba), who admits she’s only marrying him for citizenship. Chip tries to get a job paying the bills with »

David Bowie dies at 69 after long fight with cancer

11 January 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

David Bowie, the other-worldly musician who broke pop and rock boundaries with his creative musicianship, nonconformity, striking visuals and a genre-spanning persona he christened Ziggy Stardust, died of cancer Sunday. He was 69 and had just released a new album.

Bowie, whose hits included "Space Oddity," ''Fame," ''Heroes" and "Let's Dance," died "peacefully" and was surrounded by family, representative Steve Martin said early Monday. The singer had fought cancer for 18 months.

Long before alter egos and wild outfits became commonplace in pop, Bowie turned the music world upside down with the release of the 1972 album, "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars" which introduced one of music's most famous personas. Ziggy Stardust was a concept album that imagined a rock star from outer space trying to make his way in the music world. The persona - the red-headed, eyeliner wearing Stardust - would become an enduring part of his legacy, »

Tiff Stevenson chats about her new stand-up tour, Fringe, Buffy, Joss Whedon, Portlandia, Sherlock and Jason Statham....

Heading on tour around the UK this month is Tiff Stevenson. Her new stand-up show, Mad Man, is about to get underway, and she spared us some time for a chat. It got quite nerdy...

I'll start with the obvious one, and then we can go nerdy. You're going on tour with a show called Mad Man. What's it about?

It's about identity really. Who we are as people, how much of our personalities are made up of what we think we like and what we put out into the world, and how much is chewed up and sold back to us through various advertisements and social media and everything else.

Do you have specific examples you're tapping into?

Yeah, sure. Advertising is a huge thread that runs through the show. »
