"Orange Is the New Black" star Danielle Brooks will make her Broadway debut playing Sofia in the upcoming fall revival of "The Color Purple." Brooks joins the previously cast Cynthia Erivo (Celie) and Jennifer Hudson (Shug), both also making their Broadway debuts, in the Oprah Winfrey-produced project, which is currently set for a December 3 open, at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre. John Doyle is directing. Just as I pondered when "A Raisin in the Sun" was revived yet again, last year, with Denzel Washington starring, only 10 years after its previous run in 2004, I would love to see some unexplored, original plays, written by black »

Time travel is a sci-fi device that has lent itself to reinvention again and again, ever since H.G. Wells wrote the first story that had a machine powering a character's ability to make a temporal leap. Writers' fresh takes on how time travel works open up situations that wouldn't happen in a world where it takes 24 hours to travel one day into the future and where you can't relive your past. Time travel let us watch a teenager hang out with his parents when they were his age, a man become the father to his resistance leader friend, and an agent track down a suspect in two times at once, delivering one of cinema’s most compelling car chases (it helps that Denzel Washington was behind the wheel there too). New thriller "Time Lapse," now in theaters and on VOD, has its own way of playing with time: A camera »

Boston turned out to be too strong for Daniel Espinosa. The director, who is coming off the major box office disappointment of Child 44, has fallen off of Boston Strong, the drama based around the events of the Boston Marathon bombings. "Creative differences" is the reason cited for the departure, according to sources, although it is unclear what those were. But the Swedish filmmaker, who also directed the Denzel Washington-Ryan Reynolds hit Safe House, has been going through career turbulence of late. Child 44, a period Soviet drama starring Tom Hardy, cost over $30 million to make, but only

After months of casting on MGM and Sony’s remake of The Magnificent Seven, the Western is finally gearing up to roll cameras later this month. Today brings word that perennial baddie Peter Sarsgaard is in final negotiations to play robber baron Bartholomew Bogue, the villain of the film whose cronies murder the husband (Matt Bomer) of a young woman (Haley Bennett), leading her to hire an unruly band of mercenaries to take back her town.
