Steve Carell set to take over Bruce Willis role in new Woody Allen film

29 August 2015 6:46 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Steve Carell is gearing up to reunite with his Melinda and Melinda director Woody Allen in the filmmaker's new movie.

The Foxcatcher actor will replace Bruce Willis in the film after Willis "was forced to leave" production, reports Variety.

The untitled project, which is written and directed by Allen, already features an all-star cast, including Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively, Jesse Eisenberg, Parker Posey, Anna Camp and Paul Schneider among many others.

Willis exited the project earlier this month due to his Broadway commitment to Misery but not before he had been spotted filming on set.

Allen's last movie Irrational Man was released in July and starred Joaquin Phoenix, Parker Posey and Emma Stone.

Meanwhile, Carell's latest project saw him revisit his evil villain character Gru from the animated franchise Despicable Me in the wildly successful spin-off film Minions.

The Oscar-nominated actor's next films will see him reunite with two of his Crazy, »

Their friendship is tested when Laurel falls in love with a younger, openly gay, car mechanic, Stacie Andree, who urges Laurel to be open about their relationship. Laurel finds the domestic happiness she’s long sought with Stacie and they buy a house together.

Steve Carell to Replace Bruce Willis in Woody Allen’s Next Film

28 August 2015 2:38 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Following the report Bruce Willis was forced to leave the production of Woody Allen’s next pic, Allen has moved quickly to find his replacement as sources tell Variety that Steve Carell will replace Willis in the pic.

Carell joins Blake Lively, Parker Posey, Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeannie Berlin, Corey Stoll, Ken Stott, Anna Camp, Stephen Kunken, Sari Lennick and Paul Schneider in the cast, with Allen writing and directing.

The film is currently untitled and without distribution. As has been the case with several of Allen’s past films, Sony Classics is the front-runner to land the pic.

As always, plot details are under wraps, and the shoot is currently under way. Though an early report said Willis was forced to leave because of his commitment to “Misery” on Broadway, there remains some confusion surrounding his exit since the actor did appear on set before leaving the production. »

Watch: Julianne Moore and Ellen Page Star in Powerful ‘Freeheld’

27 August 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Coming on the heels of the Supreme Court’s decision on marriage equality is a noticeable increase in the amount of Lgbt stories in mainstream entertainment. First “Fun Home” takes top honors at the Tony Awards, then film awards season frontrunners “Carol” and “Grandma” feature more strong and complicated lesbian characters. Joining Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, and Lily Tomlin in the awards race is Oscar nominee Ellen Page and last year’s leading actress Oscar winner Julianne Moore in what look to be two of the most powerful performances of the season. “Freeheld,” based on the real-life story of Ocean County cop Laurel Hester, is screenwriter Ron Nyswaner’s adaptation of the Oscar-winning, Cynthia Wade-directed 2007 documentary of the same name. Helmed by Peter Sollett, the film centers on Hester’s terminal cancer diagnosis and subsequent fight to have her pension benefits transferred to her domestic partner Stacie Andree. Page, »

Watch: First U.S. Trailer For Stephen Daldry’s ‘Trash’ Starring Rooney Mara, Wagner Moura & Martin Sheen

26 August 2015 9:35 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Stephen Daldry occupies a rarefied position. He is one of the few filmmakers to have been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director four times in a row and for his first four films: “Billy Elliott,” “The Hours,” “The Reader” and “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” (three of the four were also nominated for Best Picture). Perhaps after years of Oscar-bait material —he has directed six actors in Oscar-nominated performances, namely Julie Walters, Nicole Kidman, Ed Harris, Julianne Moore, Kate Winslet, and Max von Sydow— Daldry has switched gears for “Trash” a movie set in the slums of Rio with big stars cast in supporting roles.

Criterion Collection: Two Days, One Night | Blu-ray Review:

25 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Premiering at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival where it went home empty handed from the Jane Campion headed jury, Belgian directing duo Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne continue their more recent trend of working with critically acclaimed French actresses, concocting one of their most emotionally potent titles to date, Two Days, One Night. Star Marion Cotillard would lose twice to American actress Julianne Moore in the international awards area, who trumped her at Cannes for Maps to the Stars and at the Academy Awards for Still Alice. Still, it’s an increasingly intense boil of a performance, ranging from quiet desperation to an act of selfless defiance that will transcend the trappings of any such contemporary award recognition.

Married and a mother of two, Sandra (Cotillard) has recently returned to work after a period of sick leave following a bout of depression. In her absence, management at Solwal, a local solar panel company, »

Actor helps launch petition asking for racially diverse Jeb Stuart high school in Virginia to be renamed in response to Charleston shootings

Almost 30,000 people have signed an online petition sponsored by the Oscar-winning actor Julianne Moore, which calls for a Virginia high school named after a Confederate Us civil war general to be renamed.

Moore came together with Hollywood producer Bruce Cohen after students and alumni at the racially diverse Jeb Stuart school in Fairfax County, Virginia, began a campaign to change its name. The movement began in response to the shootings of nine black parishioners in Charleston, South Carolina, in June, by a white supremacist who proudly flew and wore the Confederate flag, and subsequent calls for institutions across the south to rid themselves of Confederate iconography.
