‘The Divergent Series: Ascendant’ To Be Launched As TV Movie, Will Skip Theatrical Release

20 July 2016 3:31 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“The Divergent Series: Ascendant” is set to be released in theaters in June of 2017, but according to a new report from Variety, that might not be the case anymore. It seems that Lionsgate is now planning to wrap up the “Divergent Series” with a TV movie and a spinoff series.

No deals have been made yet and negotiations are in the early stages, though the studio is getting ready to pitch the project to networks. A source told Variety that Lionsgate’s television group will handle the production.

Shooting for the fourth and final film was set to begin this summer, but that was before the last movie, “Allegiant,” was a box office disaster and caused the team to rethink its strategy.

Based on Paula Hawkins’ bestselling novel, The Girl on the Train is adapted for the screen by Erin Cressida Wilson.

Wilson wrote and produced on the first season of HBO’s Martin Scorsese/Mick Jagger series, »

Difficult People Is Back!

16 July 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

There may be plenty of gripes about snubs from this year's Emmy nominations, but one of the bigger letdowns in my estimation is Hulu's Difficult People. Emmy is rarely kind to cult shows and the comedy's caustic humor is admittedly not everyone's cup of tea. However with its enviable explosion of big names guest stars, you would imagine that the voters could have recognized it with a nomination in the guest acting categories.

And with the start of the second season, they are only upping the ante for their day planners. By now I'm sure you have been teased on upcoming stints from the likes Lin-Manuel Miranda and Julianne Moore after the premiere episodes already gave us Tina Fey and Nathan Lane. In fact, as it returned this week all of the discussion around the show seemed targeted on who would be popping up rather than what hilarity we could expect from the season itself. »

‘Equals’: How Kristen Stewart’s Futuristic, Androgynous Costumes Came To Life

15 July 2016 1:43 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The new movie “Equals” presented an interesting challenge for costume designer Alana Morshead, who alongside co-designer Abby O’Sullivan, had to capture what clothing would look like in a world where humans had freed themselves of emotions. While the movie does take place in the future, director Drake Doremus didn’t want a technology-driven dystopia like we are used to seeing in theaters and was reaching for something quite different. We asked Morshead to take us through her process of creating the characters’ uniforms and what inspired their unique style.]

Read More: ‘Equals’ Trailer – Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult Dystopian Love Story Gets a New Preview

Before reading the “Equals” script, director Drake Doremus described to me the futuristic love story he was creating with writer Nathan Parker. He described it as an emotionless utopia, where feelings have been eradicated leading to no love, hate or war. There is a disease some have called Switched on Syndrome, or Sos, where you can begin to feel emotions like lovers Nia (Kristen Stewart) and Silas (Nicholas Hoult).

Having only his words to imagine this world, my mind began spinning on who these people were and what they might look like. After reading the script, I was completely drawn to how meticulous and precise the characters are. Everything they do and everything they own has a function, a reason for its existence. The character’s apartments have only what they need. The food »

Kingsman 2: new set photo confirms returning actor

Spoiler ahoy: don't click here if you don't want to know who's coming back for Kingsman 2...

This piece contains a spoiler for Kingsman: The Secret Service and potentially one for Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

Right then. Potential spoilers lie ahead, so scroll past Daphne The Spoiler Squirrel (not Tm) at your peril...

Still here? Right then. Here's the story.

For it looks as though Pedro Pascal just confirmed Colin Firth's return for Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Pascal, best known for his turn as Oberyn Martell on Game Of Thrones, is starring in the comic book adaptation sequel from Matthew Vaughn, and just shared this Instagram pic from the set...

Colin Firth pictured on the ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ set

We all thought that Colin Firth met his maker in the very first Kingsman movie, but it looks like we presumed wrong. The British Oscar-winner has just been snapped on the set of the sequel, which is now shooting under the watchful eye of Matthew Vaughn.

We previous saw a teaser poster featuring the words “Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated,” prompting speculation that a return for Firth was on the cards.

Now we may have the proof from co-star Pedro Pascale’s Instagram – or could it be a twin brother? Who knows? Take a look.

Colin Firth Returns In "Kingsman 2" Set Pics

12 July 2016 12:43 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Despite his apparent death in the first film, the casting of Colin Firth in the upcoming sequel "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" made it quite clear that his Harry Hart character would be back in the Matthew Vaughn-helmed follow-up to the spy action-comedy.

20th Century Fox obviously have little issue with it as a potential spoiler. Previously they released a teaser poster confirming Firth's return and now some set photos have gone up on social media from fellow cast members Taron Egerton and Pedro Pascal. The new photos show off a returning Firth in the film which is has been shooting ahead of a 2017 release. Halle Berry, Mark Strong, Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Channing Tatum and Elton John also star.

Colin Firth Returns as Harry Hart in New Kingsman 2 Set Photo

11 July 2016 3:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Shortly after 20th Century Fox released their surprise blockbuster Kingsman: The Secret Service, talk of a sequel started to surface. Director Matthew Vaughn teased last spring that he had some ideas for the sequel, even hinting that Colin Firth's character Harry Hart may return in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, despite being seemingly killed off at the end of the first movie. Back in April, a new poster teased the return of Harry Hart, but we haven't gotten a glimpse at the actor since production began. Thankfully, Pedro Pascal has offered our first look at Colin Firth from the set.

Over the weekend, Pedro Pascal shared a photo on Instagram, which features the actor hiding behind Colin Firth, with the caption "Hide behind Harry." Unfortunately, the photo doesn't come with any details about how this Kingsman agent was brought back to life, but the poster from this spring featured the »

Colin Firth Will Indeed Return For Kingsman: The Golden Circle

11 July 2016 1:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Reports of his death have been greatly exaggerated and, sure enough, Colin Firth will be back as Harry Hart for Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

Word of Firth’s return first surfaced a few months back, when Taron Egerton posted a teasing photo that included Hart’s signature spectacles. Flying in the face of expectation – the way in which The Secret Service ended led fans to believe that Hart was firmly en route to meeting his maker – director Matthew Vaughn has opted to welcome back the charismatic Firth for another whirl, and an Instagram post from Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal all but confirms Hart’s role in the action sequel.

Maggie’s Plan review – a refreshingly complex romcom

10 July 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Great Gerwig and Julianne Moore win the day in this smart and subversive love triangle tale

A young woman’s decision to take control of her destiny and her fertility backfires when she falls in (and out of) love with a married man. There’s something of the Jane Austen heroine in manipulative but well-meaning Maggie (Greta Gerwig, dialling down some of the kookiness that unbalanced Mistress America): she’s Emma transposed to the age of turkey basters and sperm donors. A refreshingly complex and even somewhat unlikable character, she is presented without judgment. Gerwig’s gift for gauche naturalism brings an easy familiarity to the role; Maggie feels like the annoyingly controlling friend you can’t help but love despite yourself.

In a new interview with Australia's Daily Telegraph, Julianne Moore opened up about raising son Caleb, 18, and daughter Liv, 14, to have relatively normal lives, despite having a very famous mom. "They live a regular life. I make breakfast for them, my husband drives them to school and we all go to basketball games," Moore, 55, said. "Both my kids play a lot of basketball - my son's a really, really good player." She added: "We have family vacations. We're involved in their lives and they don't have jobs. I don't think it's a good thing for kids to work." Related Video: »

Equals Review: A Quiet, Satisfying Sci-Fi Romeo and Juliet

8 July 2016 11:25 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

No matter what "in the not too distant future" sci-fi movie you are watching, odds are, if it was made at any point in the last decade, everything looks like it evolved from an Apple store and is sleek, sterile and very modern looking. Equals very much exemplifies that, and it is hard to know just how off base the aesthetic of these movies will be. But while other sci-fi movies made in this era may both look and feel very outdated, at the very worst, Equals will only feel that way. Probably. There is a reasonably compelling love story to latch onto, and that kind of stuff tends to stand the test of time a little better than many other things.

Equals is a movie that takes place at some point in the future after the Earth's inhabitants have nearly bombed themselves out of existence. There are still a »

Maggie's Plan review – terrifically funny metropolitan comedy

7 July 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Greta Gerwig, Julianne Moore and Ethan Hawke star in Rebecca Miller’s witty, invigorating film about a woman’s attempt to become pregnant

A romantic comedy worthy of the name isn’t what I expected of Rebecca Miller, whose previous pictures have been strained and unrelaxed exercises, often based on her novels. But Maggie’s Plan is terrifically funny and enjoyable – a metropolitan comedy in the former high style of Woody Allen, directed with elegance and dash by Miller and co-scripted by her with publisher-turned-screenwriter Karen Rinaldi. Greta Gerwig stars in her idiot savant Annie Hall mode as Maggie, a New York lecturer in “ficto-critical anthropology” who is trying to become a single mom using sperm donated by an old school contemporary who is now making a fortune marketing pickles. Her plan is to get pregnant within four months, but then she has an encounter with handsome, distrait colleague John »

Michelle Williams May Star Alongside Hugh Jackman in P.T. Barnum Biopic ‘The Greatest Showman’

6 July 2016 12:57 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Per Deadline, Michelle Williams is in talks to star alongside Hugh Jackman in “The Greatest Showman.” Jackman will play P.T. Barnum in the musical biopic, which charts the rise of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Zac Efron may be joining the project as well in an as-yet unspecified role.

Though silver-screen musicals aren’t too uncommon in and of themselves, “The Greatest Showman” purports to be Hollywood’s first not based on an existing property since 1992’s “Newsies.” Michael Arndt — who won an Academy Award for his “Little Miss Sunshine” screenplay and has also written or co-written “Toy Story 3,” “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” and “The Force Awakens” — is on script duty. Veteran commercial director Michael Gracey will helm the project, which will feature original songs by the Tony-nominated duo of Justin Paul & Benj Pasek (“The »

Michelle Williams in Talks for Hugh Jackman’s ‘Greatest Showman on Earth’

6 July 2016 12:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Michelle Williams is in talks to join Hugh Jackman in the P.T. Barnum biopic “The Greatest Showman on Earth.”

The project has been in development since 2009 with Jackman attached. The contemporary musical is being produced by Chernin Entertainment, Laurence Mark and Jackman.

Variety reported last month that Zac Efron was also in negotiations for the project.

Michael Gracey is attached to direct from Michael Arndt’s script.

Jackman will play the showman with a specialty in hoaxing a gullible public as he creates the three-ring Barnum & Bailey Circus that made him famous. Barnum gained fame as a 19th century impresario with tours of Tom Thumb and the singer Jenny Lind; he began calling it the “Greatest Show on Earth” near the end of his career.

Williams recently starred in a revival of the play “Blackbird” on Broadway opposite Jeff Daniels and was nominated for a Tony. She appeared in 2014’s »

Exclusive Interview: Writer-director Rebecca Miller discusses Maggie’s Plan

6 July 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Acclaimed dramedy Maggie’s Plan is released in UK cinemas this Friday [read our ★★★★ review here] and writer-director Rebecca Miller has been chatting to Flickering Myth’s Freda Cooper about the film and how she became involved.

Maggie’s Plan marks Miller’s first film since 2009’s The Private Lives of Pippa Lee and when she first discovered the project, it still had yet to be finished:

“The book came to me through my friend Karen Rinaldi and he actually on sent me the Maggie chapters of the book – I haven’t actually read the whole book yet! It’s published in a year’s time but in those chapters was the fundamentals of the love triangle and the basic hook of the movie. I added the best friends and the pickle man so a lot of the plot was built out by me.”

15 Great Ways Filmmakers Found Their Independence In The Last 20 Years

4 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Subverting the Unexpected

At the end of the 20th century, Bobcat Goldthwait’s legacy read like a cheap joke: He was a screaming comedian from the eighties best known as Zed in the “Police Academy” franchise who once tried at his hand at directing a movie (“Shakes the Clown”). Those achievements barely skimmed the surface of Goldthwait’s ability, as the ensuing years made clear, when Goldthwait completely transformed his career into one of the most provocative American filmmakers working today. With the microbudget “Sleeping Dogs Lie” (aka “Stay”), Goldthwait showed his potential to funnel taboo subject matters into oddly touching, relatable human dramas, a proclivity he kicked up to a whole new level with the subversive black comedy “World’s Greatest Dad,” which features Robin Williams in one of his all-time great roles.

Goldthwait has kept innovating, with each new movie offering a fresh perspective on the naive assumptions »

Exclusive Interview: Writer & Director Rebecca Miller For ‘Maggie’s Plan’

4 July 2016 2:49 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

In cinemas this week is the superb romantic comedy Maggie’s Plan, the Greta Gerwig led comedy from writer and director Rebecca Miller.

We first reviewed the film at this year’s Berlin Film Festival, and were absolutely delighted with it.  Maggie’s Plan revolves around Gerwig’s title character of Maggie. Maggie desperately wants a baby, and it seems she’ll do anything to get her wish. She even has an exact date of when she’d like to conceive with the prospective father; sperm donor, and pickle entrepreneur Guy (Travis Fimmel – Vikings, upcoming Warcraft). However, things take a slightly different turn when fate gets in the way and fellow lecturer, and wannabe fiction writer John (Ethan Hawke), comes into Maggie’s life. A relationship soon forms, despite the fact that John is still married, with two children, to Georgette (Julianne Moore). Maggie and John’s relationship develops and »
