Paramount is going through an awkward moment. Looking back, the studio’s CinemaCon presentation could only highlight 18 Oscar nominations; looking forward, the release slate is skimpy and Nickelodeon division’s is woeful, anchored by “SpongeBob SquarePants” and designed to make the studio look like they have exploitable IP.
That said, change is coming: Genial ex-Fox chairman Jim Gianopulos replaces outgoing 12-year veteran Brad Grey. (Said worldwide marketing president Megan Colligan, “We are thrilled to have him leading the ship and taking us into our future.”) Gianopulos has full greenlight authority over what remains of the studio’s skeleton crew, but he needs top-level (and top-quality) help. One production candidate, Scott Stuber, skipped to Netflix, while Oscar producer Michael DeLuca kept his lucrative deal at Universal.
The studio does have two franchises it can still exploit. “Mi 6: Mission Impossible” starts shooting April 8 in London, India, Paris, and New Zealand, for »

George Clooney is a man of many talents, but apparently, picking baby names isn’t one of them.
The 55-year-old joked about welcoming twins with his wife Amal, sharing that he wants to name the little ones after his successful tequila company Casamigos — much to Amal’s dismay.
He adds, “It was just a thought. I mean, you know, it’s a family business.”

The movie, which will be arriving on November 3rd, stars Clooney, Matt Damon, and Julianne Moore. Suburbicon has been written by Joel and Ethan Coen, and sees Clooney himself taking up the director’s chair.
The film revolves around the lives of seemingly ordinary people in the town of Suburbicon, showcasing humanity’s best and worst components. At the centre of the story is a home invasion turned deadly, which causes a picture perfect family to resort to blackmail and revenge.
Given its top draw line up, the Coens in tow, and its prime time release date, one should expect Suburbicon to be on plenty of awards watch lists, »

George Clooney is failing the baby name game -- at least, according to his wife, Amal.
While promoting the trailer for his latest directorial project, Suburbicon, at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Tuesday, the 55-year-old actor chatted with Et's Kevin Frazier about the impending arrival of his twins, expected in June.
"I don't know how you fully digest [having two], but I'm excited," the first-time father-to-be told Et. "It will be fun."
Clooney joked that he considered naming the children after his thriving tequila company, Casamigos, but the idea was quickly vetoed by Amal. "My wife says I can't name them Casa and Amigos. That's the one thing I'm not allowed to do," he said.
The Oscar winner added, "It was just a thought. I mean, you know, it's a family business."

The actor - who is expecting twins with wife Amal - looked dashing in a gray suit and appeared to be in a good mood as he spoke on stage with costars Matt Damon and Julianne Moore and mingled with Dwayne Johnson. In addition to promoting the movie, George gave an update on Amal's pregnancy, telling Extra, "She is doing really great. She is amazing. I don't have anything to do. There is nothing I can do to help, but make tea and stuff." The babies will be the first children for both Amal and George, and the actor is ready for them to arrive. "I know swaddling. I know what I'm in for," he said. He also joked that diapers will be an important part of life "for me, not for the kids. »

In true friend fashion, Matt Damon is keeping parenthood tabs on a few of his Hollywood pals.
The Oscar winner confessed that while Clooney, 55, is often overly prepared on set, he is still prepping for this whole first-time fatherhood thing. The news broke in early February that Clooney and his wife, Amal, are expecting twins in June.
"He's going to get prepared," the Suburbicon star told Et. "He better figure it out, 'cause they're on the way. But he'll be great. He'll be a mess, but [Amal] will take care of everything."

George Clooney is ready to meet his twins. E! News' Marc Malkin caught up with the first-time father-to-be at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, where he was joined by Matt Damon and Julianne Moore to present the first trailer for Paramount's Suburbicon. Conversation quickly turned to Amal Clooney and their babies, and not even George can wrap his head around the exciting times ahead. "Can you believe it?! Yeah, [I'm] even happier [than before,]" he gushed. "I didn't know that we'd have kids. I was very happy that we were going to get married and then [a pregnancy] seemed like the next step." But when asked if he's busy baby-proofing their home »
“We knocked over a few casinos here, haven’t we?” said Clooney to laughs from the audience. He and his stars charmed the crowd with plenty of jokes. Clooney asked Damon, “What was it like to be directed by Batman?,” with Damon responding that he’d almost forgotten that Clooney even played that role.

Paramount Pictures showcased George Clooney’s “Suburbicon” on Tuesday — which will release in the awards strike zone this year — and Clooney himself introduced the footage with stars Julianne Moore and Matt Damon at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. Damon and Moore play in-laws who share a dead woman in common – her twin, his former wife — and Oscar Isaac is a detective who finds something very fishy about the way she met her demise. The period piece has a very noirish feel with some comedy wedged in — Damon took a brutal punch to the nose, and Moore sits for an excruciating »

Paramount has been through a bruising leadership shakeup, but Megan Colligan, the studio’s distribution and marketing chief, said at CinemaCon on Tuesday that it was a new day for the studio.
Colligan said that the appointment of Jim Gianopulos as studio chairman “marks a new moment.” Gianopulos led Fox’s film business for 16 years, and is known for his command of the global entertainment business.
Jim Gianopulos Named Paramount Chairman/CEO (Exclusive)
“We are thrilled to have him leading the ship and taking us into the future,” Colligan said.
Paramount’s corporate parent Viacom was consumed in a battle for control that pitted former chairman Philippe Dauman against Shari Redstone, the daughter of company founder Sumner Redstone. Dauman was forced out last summer. Brad Grey, Paramount’s head for 12 years, later followed him to the exit door. He was undone by a string of money losers such as “Ben-Hur” and “Zoolander 2. »

Exuberant studio session on Tuesday showcases R-rated comedy, sci-fi, adult thrillers, satire.
George Clooney and Matt Damon, Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Michael Bay, Mark Wahlberg and Anthony Hopkins, Alexander Payne and none other than former Us vice-president Al Gore were among the celebrity highlights of a high-wattage studio presentation on Tuesday.
The footage dazzled the crowd and drew sustained applause at the end. Damon and on-screen wife Kristen Wiig volunteer for a ground-breaking social experiment in which they are reduced to the size of dolls.
“Downsizing imagines what might happen if, as a solution for overpopulation and climate change, Norwegian scientists discover how to shrink people down to five inches tall,” Payne, who is editing the film now, said. “What people soon realise is it’s actually a way to consume more.” The »

Nicole Kidman and Amy Schumer are set to co-star in a new film. “Maggie’s Plan” hit theaters just last year, but writer-director Rebecca Miller is already lining up a star-studded cast for “She Came to Me,” her next project. Joining Kidman and Schumer in the comedic drama is Steve Carell, Variety reports.
Set in “the world of contemporary art and tug boats” (yep), the film depicts “two intertwining love stories,” according to the source.
Miller is producing under Round Films, hers and Damon Cardasis’ banner which launched last May. The production company’s first release was Miller’s “Maggie’s Plan,” a critically acclaimed comedy about an unusual love triangle starring Greta Gerwig, Julianne Moore, and Ethan Hawke. Odd Lot Entertainment’s Gigi Pritzker and Rachel Shane are also producing.
Kidman can currently be seen in HBO’s “Big Little Lies.” The Oscar winner is earning rave reviews for her performance as Celeste, a talented lawyer who sacrificed her career to be a stay-at-home mom under pressure from her abusive husband. The limited series is based on Liane Moriarty’s bestselling book of the same name. Kidman is also serving as executive producer on the murder mystery. Her upcoming projects include Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled,” set during the Civil War, and a role in Season 2 of Jane Campion’s feminist mystery series “Top of the Lake.”
Schumer just made headlines for dropping out of the “Barbie” movie. She was slated to star as the iconic doll in the Sony Pictures live-action film, and according to the source, she exited the project “to make room in her schedule” for “She Came to Me.” The comedienne recently released “The Leather Special,” a stand-up special for Netflix. She can next be seen in “Snatched” alongside Goldie Hawn. The pair play a daughter and mother on a vacation that goes horribly awry. The comedy, written by Katie Dippold (“Spy”), hits theaters May 12.
Nicole Kidman and Amy Schumer to Star in Rebecca Miller’s “She Came to Me” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Amazon look set to once more throw down the gauntlet to its main rival Netflix with its latest project. The studio has reportedly managed to bag Lobster director Yorgos Lanthimos, and his lead, Colin Farrell, for a new project. This follows not long after the announcement that they are developing a David O. Russell drama starring Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore. The new project will focus on Oliver North and his involvement in the Iran-Contra affair.
The production is still in very early stages, with the script still being written by Enzo Mileti and Scott Wilson; Ben Stiller and Nicky Weinstock are on-board as executive producers. Lanthimos had this to say about the forthcoming project:
“I’m really excited to be working with Colin again on something quite different to what we have done so far. I look forward to joining forces with Ben and Nicky, who had an »

Kingsman: The Secret Service was one hell of a movie! Based on the comic book series The Secret Service from Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, the movie was both a fun homage and semi-parody on the spy genre. A love letter to James Bond in every way, director Matthew Vaughn brought with him everything he learned from Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class and took it to the next level with incredible action scenes, dialogue, and cast including memorable performances by Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, and Taron Egerton.
The sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, sees the return of Vaughn as director and cast members Egerton, Mark Strong, and Firth... somehow. Joining them is a completely bonkers cast including Jeff Bridges, Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Julianne Moore, and even Elton John. And let's not forget that Pedro Pascal (Narcos, The Great Wall) is playing a character named "Jack Daniels." The film is in post-production, »

Colin Farrell is ready to return to the small screen.
Farrell and his “Lobster” director Yorgos Lanthimos are teaming up again on an Amazon show about Oliver North and his involvement in the Iran-Contra affair. Farrell will star as the former U.S. marine in the untitled limited series, which will primarily focus on the Iran-Contra scandal, and Lanthimos will direct.
“I’m really excited to be working with Colin again on something quite different to what we have done so far,” Lanthimos said. “I look forward to joining forces with Ben and Nicky, who had an excellent casting idea and saw the potential of the material early on and Amazon, who has embraced the project with great enthusiasm.
