Kevin Spacey to play Gore Vidal in Netflix biopic

10 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Variety is reporting that two-time Oscar winner Kevin Spacey is set to portray the late American writer Gore Vidal in an upcoming biopic entitled Gore, which is being produced by Netflix.

Gore is being directed by Michael Hoffman (The Last Station) and will explore the life of the author, playwright and political commentator during the 1980s. The film is currently shooting in Rome, but will soon move to Vidal’s longtime villa in Ravello, where he entertained a host of high-profile friends including the likes of Greta Garbo, Lauren Bacall, Paul Newman, Susan Sarandon, Andy Warhol, Rudolf Nureyev, and Mick Jagger.

Kevin Spacey was most recently seen in Edgar Wright’s latest film Baby Driver, while his upcoming films include Rebel in the Rye, Billionaire Boys Club and All the Money in the World – all of which see him portraying real life people in Whit Burnett, Ron Levin and J. »

Coming Distractions: J.D. Salinger rocks recluse-chic in the first trailer for Rebel In The Rye

10 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The first trailer has arrived for Danny Strong’s Rebel In The Rye, with X-Men and Fury Road star Nicholas Hoult in the starring role of tortured would-be novelist J.D. Salinger. The film focuses on the earlier portions of Salinger’s career, with Kevin Spacey and Victor Garber on-hand to discourage or build him up as needed, and Sarah Paulson as his loyal literary agent, Dorothy Olding.

The tone of the film feels very recluse-chic (or at least tortured cool), as Hoult’s Salinger struggles handsomely with his work, the publishing world, and his memories of World War II. And while we can’t imagine the man himself would have been overly happy about seeing his early life transformed into one of Byronic heroism, there’s an energy to the trailer that suggests the film might offer up more than a simple series of basic biopic pleasures.

Presumably hoping for better results than the documentary “Salinger,” Danny Strong’s upcoming biopic “Rebel in the Rye” will examine the early years of everyone’s favorite recluse.

Watch the “Rebel” trailer below.

Here’s the brief synopsis from the film’s Sundance premiere: “This biopic of legendary author J.D. Salinger (Nicholas Hoult) details his relationship with socialite Oona O’Neill (Zoey Deutch), his experiences fighting in World War II, and his writing process for ‘The Catcher in the Rye.’” The trailer is heavy on Salinger’s inner turmoil, which gives life to his most famous creation: Holden Caulfield. »

The Disappointing Reason Baby Driver Doesn't Live Up to the Hype

17 July 2017 3:40 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

You've probably heard a lot of buzz around the new Edgar Wright film, Baby Driver. The action flick follows Baby (Ansel Elgort), a talented young getaway driver who gets sucked into a life of crime working for a kingpin (Kevin Spacey) after being in a car accident as a child, which killed his parents and left him with a constant ringing in his ears that he blocks out by listening to music through his headphones. The film is getting fantastic reviews and even has a 95 percent critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but unfortunately I'm here to tell you it just doesn't live up to the hype. Don't get me wrong - Baby Driver has a lot of redeeming qualities. It has an awesome cast, including not only Elgort and Spacey, but also Jon Hamm, Lily James, Eiza González, and Jamie Foxx. It has a killer soundtrack that includes songs from Barry White, »

Alexander Payne’s ‘Downsizing,’ Starring Matt Damon, Will Open Venice Film Festival

14 July 2017 2:48 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Look for Matt Damon to turn up on the Lido this year on August 30. That’s because he stars in writer-director Alexander Payne’s comedy “Downsizing,” which will open the Venice International Film Festival, in competition. And Paramount is putting its money down that Payne’s latest will come out of the fall festival season as one of the top contenders in this year’s Oscars race. Payne also directed Oscar contenders “Sideways” and “Nebraska.”

Damon plays an ordinary suburbanite who convinces his wife (Kristen Wiig) to go small– and buy into a richer lifestyle. So they get shrunk. Laura Dern, Christoph Waltz and Jason Sudeikis costar.

Paramount may well decide to take Darren Aronofsky’s “Mother!” to Venice as well, if not Italy resident George Clooney’s “Suburbicon.” Venice is the first of the fall festivals to launch the official awards season, with Telluride and Toronto on its heels. »

Emmy Nominations Analysis: Freshmen Dramas and Auteurs Rule as Voters Do Their Homework

13 July 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

How wide open was the Emmy Awards nominations race this year with “Game of Thrones” sitting out this year? Five first-year series crowded into the drama series race — an unprecedented display of new-ness in what has long been the Emmy’s most competitive category.

Last year, USA Network’s “Mr. Robot” was the sole freshman entry among seven drama series nominees. This year, “Homeland” and “The Americans” were elbowed aside by Netflix’s “The Crown” and “Stranger Things,”  Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” NBC’s “This Is Us” and HBO’s “Westworld.”

The wealth spread to newbies reflects the breadth of programming that Emmy voters had to choose from and a clear desire by voters to inject fresh blood into the realm of shows considered Emmy-worthy.

In that sense, the Peak TV explosion of nearly 500 scripted series helped lower-profile entries like “The Crown” and “Handmaid’s Tale,” as well as for FX’s “Atlanta” on the »
