Shailene Woodley Rocks Long Extensions On The Set Of "Snowden" Biopic -- Like The Look?

17 April 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Long hair, don't care!  Shailene Woodley was spotted on the set of the "Snowden" biopic in Honolulu, Hawaii on Thursday ... though we barely recognized her with all that hair. The actress didn't look like herself, sporting long brown hair extensions for her role as Edward Snowden's girlfriend, Lindsay Mills.  The young star was dressed down for the scene, rocking long denim shorts, a black T-shirt, minimal makeup and no shoes.  The Oliver Stone directed biopic -- which will follow the life of Snowden, a former CIA employee who leaked thousands of classified information to the press -- boasts a pretty impressive cast, too.  Woodley stars alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Snowden), Nicolas Cage, Scott Eastwood, Zachary Quinto and Joely Richardson in the biographic thriller.  While we think Woodley can rock any look, we've gotten used to her with slightly shorter tresses. What do you think about the 23-year-old's movie makeunder? Tell »

Beijing: Darren Aronofsky, Tsui Hark discuss co-pros

17 April 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Filmmakers including Darren Aronofsky, Tsui Hark and Jean-Jacques Annaud discussed the key factors that help a film travel at the Beijing International Film Festival’s Co-production Forum today.

In a touchy-feely session that was much tamer than last year’s Forum – when Oliver Stone blasted China for not making films that tackled its past – the talk was mostly of creating universal stories and looking beyond cultural differences.

“It all comes down to character and the humanity that unites us all,” said Aronofsky. “I was on the Berlin film festival jury this year and a film from Iran won. But it doesn’t matter what country it came from – it was just a deeply emotional human story. I don’t know that there are French stories, Chinese stories or American stories. Co-production should reflect that.”

Hong Kong director Tsui Hark agreed that the human story has to come first, but added that “there’s a different philosophy in Western »

Shailene Woodley beats out Jennifer Lawrence at the MTV Movie Awards

12 April 2015 5:51 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Actress Shailene Woodley took a few more steps toward owning the MTV demographic that Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart have had a stranglehold on the last few years Sunday by claiming a pair of awards at the top of the 2015 MTV Movie Awards: Best Actress for her work in "The Fault in Our Stars" and the Trailblazer Award for forging her own path in the industry. "I was here three years ago when Emma Stone won this award and I remember what she said," Woodley said from the Nokia Theatre stage in accepting the Trailblazer honor. "She came up here and defined what a trailblazer is…and in her speech she said we meet thousands of people we're inspired by but we'll never be anyone other than ourselves. In thinking about that I realized we can't truly be ourselves without a community to reflect back to ourselves who we are. »

Scott Eastwood, Riding Towards Movie Stardom

10 April 2015 11:28 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Scott Eastwood is starving. On a recent afternoon, the 29-year-old heartthrob barrels into a conference room at Twentieth Century Fox after a morning of press for his new movie, “The Longest Ride,” where he plays a bull-wrangling cowboy. He eyes the lunch buffet, unwrapping tinfoil and stacking two plates with chicken, fish and vegetables, a potluck for one. Then he sits down and realizes he might need to devour this meal with his bare hands. “I don’t have a fork,” says Eastwood, the son of screen legend Clint. “I don’t know what’s going on here.” A publicist rushes over with silverware. “Ah, ah, woo-hoo! You got some forks for us,” Eastwood says.

Even though he’s acted for 12 years, mostly in smaller roles, Eastwood’s career is now on the upswing. Eastwood has just arrived in New York from Hawaii, where he plays a Nsa agent in »

‘Twin Peaks’ at 25: Celebrating the Great Limited Series (That Wasn’t)

8 April 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Can it really be 25 years since “Twin Peaks” premiered? Seriously, how long were we all stopped at that eerie traffic signal?

Still, the fact the show still resonates – and even inspired Showtime to brave the wacky world of David Lynch in pursuit of a possible revival – stems from the fact that this quarter-century-old artifact was really well ahead of its time, more suited to the subscription- and binge-oriented world of today than a broadcast network back when AMC was still exclusively airing old movies.

To borrow a bit of modern TV parlance, “Twin Peaks” was the perfect limited series. It just didn’t know it yet.

Indeed, the first eight-episode season of “Twin Peaks” caused the sort of hysteria that caught ABC unawares. Still, with all the heat surrounding its “Who killed Laura Palmer?” mystery, the show would have been better served by being a self-contained story, as opposed to »

Logan's Run

The long-gestating remake of the sci-fi classic "Logan's Run" has scored a new rumor today that suggests the script for the film has been refitted so that Logan is now a woman rather than a man.

Previous reports have suggested the new version will use low-tech science fiction in a futuristic setting and hew closer to the book than the 1976 movie. [Source: Tracking Board]

New Image For Oliver Stone’s Snowden Sees Joesph Gordon-Levitt And Shailene Woodley Walk The Streets Of The Capital

7 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Late last month, the first image from Oliver Stone’s upcoming biopic Snowden found its way online, which sees Joesph-Gordon Levitt step into the shoes of the controversial figure. Now, with filming well underway in Washington, D.C., a new still from the production has surfaced that shows the leading actor walk the streets of the capital alongside Insurgent star Shailene Woodley.

Treading the line between whistleblower and traitor, depending on your own personal perspective on the events, Edward Snowden was an Nsa contractor who published a string of classified information from the company relating to Internet security, the controversial Prism program and much more. Before this debacle, though, he was a solider serving his country, and it’s understood Stone’s feature will spin out the divisive topic by first focusing on his own personal background.

Currently, Snowden has been granted political asylum in Russia, and no matter what »

New Snowden Image Features Shailene Woodley and Joseph Gordon-Levitt

6 April 2015 3:28 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Production continues on director Oliver Stone’s upcoming thriller Snowden, and Open Road Pictures has released yet another image from the set, this time giving us our first look at Shailene Woodley’s character during filming in Washington, D.C. The Fault in Our Stars actress plays the girlfriend of Edward Snowden (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) in the thriller, which recounts how Snowden obtained and absconded with thousands of classified Nsa documents, which he then disseminated to the press in the interest of informing the public about privacy breaches from its own government. Woodley plays Snowden’s girlfriend, who was unaware what Snowden was doing until he contacted her from Hong Kong, where he was already in the process of leaking the documents. She subsequently followed him to Russia, where the two live today. The timing of the new Snowden image is spot on, as last night the real Snowden appeared on »

First Look at Shailene Woodley With Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Oliver Stone’s ‘Snowden’ (Photo)

Oliver Stone is now filming “Snowden,” his biopic on Nsa leaker Edward Snowden, in Washington, D.C., and has released the first photo featuring Shailene Woodley alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Snowden, who has been granted political asylum in Russia, was an Nsa contractor who leaked classified documents. The act prompted various factions within the media to either champion him as a whistleblower or label him a traitor. Before he made a name for himself, however, he was just another soldier serving his country. Gordon-Levitt plays him in Stone’s film, while Woodley plays Snowden’s girlfriend, Lindsay Mills.
