"Orange Is the New Black" star Danielle Brooks (as Sofia), Cynthia Erivo (as Celie) and Jennifer Hudson (as Shug), will make their Broadway debuts in the upcoming fall revival of "The Color Purple." The Oprah Winfrey-produced project 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 playwrights that are worth exploring, instead of this continuous recycling of tried »

It's a film that's on my Oscar 2016 predictions list, as Chiwetel Ejiofor could see another Best Actor nomination for his performance in the American remake of the Argentine crime thriller, "The Secret in Their Eyes." It was a role that Denzel Washington was reportedly offered initially, but it eventually went to Ejiofor, who is surrounded by actresses also lauded for their past work - Nicole Kidman (nominated for Oscar thrice, won once) and Julia Roberts (nominated 4 times, also won once). Billy Ray, known more for his writing of scripts for critically-acclaimed movies like "Captain Phillips," "The Hunger Games," "State of »

He was one of the youngest TV executive producers in the medium's history, created not one but two successful animated programs, hosted the Oscars and had a blockbuster comedy bring in beaucoup box office receipts. He has contributed $1 million to the Reading Rainbow kickstarter fund and produced the recent reboot of the classic science series Cosmos; Harvard named him their 2011 Humanist of the Year. Yet Seth MacFarlane has managed to inspire an intense, rabid hatred of his raunchy comedy and retro-dude attitudes that's been as fervent as the fanbase that »

"If it drives, flies, floats, or fucks, lease it!" That's the advice financial consultant Spencer Strassmore (The Rock) gives his fellow NFL pals in Ballers, and that's the show in a nutshell: ostentatious, competitive consumption; boring, dated misogyny; with an air of hollow falseness. Come on! Everyone knows it's cheaper to buy than to lease a car.Look, we all love the Rock. That's basically the point of America. So the fact that even he cannot liven things up should indicate just how rote Ballers feels. His Spencer is a former NFL player, now trying to figure out his new career as a financial planner. His boss, Joe (Rob Corddry), is on his case to chat up more business, so he tries: There's the drama-plagued Ricky (John David Washington, who actually played in the NFL and is also the son of Denzel Washington), the hot-shot rookie Vernon (Donovan W.

The actor, currently cameoing in Mr Holmes, may be best known for sitcoms, but she’s also featured in an eclectic selection of big-screen work
And yet De la Tour has also made movies: an eclectic selection featuring collaborations with Martin Scorsese, the Wombles and Denzel Washington. Sometimes she’s seen only fleetingly – the briefest of fee-fi-fo-fums in last year’s Into the Woods, and just one appearance opposite Vicious housemate Ian McKellen in this week’s Mr Holmes. Sometimes we never even see the scenes: her role as a headmistress having an affair with Anne Reid in Love Actually was left on the cutting-room floor.

His latest film, "Furious 7," broke box office records -- but Tyrese Gibson already has his eyes on something bigger: An Oscar. The R&B singer/actor just completed a 23-minute short film called "Shame," which he wrote and stars in alongside Jennifer Hudson. The short, which premieres next Tuesday, was produced by Denzel Washington. Yeah, Gibson's surrounded himself with some really respected names -- and working with two-time Academy Award winning Washington was a bit of wish-fulfillment for the singer. "I've said for many years that as an actor I wouldn't feel like I really made it as an actor until I worked with Denzel Washington," Gibson tells toofab. "I guess dreams do come true! Having him on board as a producer has taken the integrity, energy and seriousness around this short to new heights. I'm honored to see my name in the same credits with my hero." And »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...
Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.
Without further ado...
23 Jump Street
Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »
Former "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul has scored the lead male role and will produce the Hulu original series "The Way" which premieres this winter. Each episode explores the choice between the life we live and the life we want.
Paul will play Eddie Cleary, a convert to a controversial movement with a wayward past. He's a husband and father who suffers a crisis of faith when all that he's come to accept as truth in his life is fundamentally challenged. Michelle Monaghan stars as his wife. [Source: TV Line]
Rooney Mara and Ben Mendelsohn are set to star in stage director Benedict Andrews' filmmaking debut "Blackbird" which will shoot for five weeks across the south of England. Playwright David Harrower penned the script described as an intense, unflinching examination of damaged love.
Mendelsohn plays Ray, a man confronted with his past when the young and beautiful Una (Mara) arrives unannounced at his office. »

A taut boxing yarn about a champ who loses it all and has to fight his way back to keep custody of his daughter, Southpaw sticks to tried-and-tested genre rules, yet an edgy cast — led by formidable leading man Jake Gyllenhaal — keeps the story in sharp focus. Director Antoine Fuqua has shown his talent for bringing out the shadowy side of nice guys like Denzel Washington in The Equalizer and Training Day. Here Gyllenhaal gets the makeover as a bloodied, battered but magnetic prize-fighter. Set for a late July release after its competition bow at

Following great viewing numbers for the release of the first trailer for Ridley Scott's The Martian, Fox decided to pull a release date switcheroo, moving the sci-fi feature starring Matt Damon as an astronaut stranded on Mars to Oct. 2 from its previous Nov. 25 date. At the same time they moved the Daniel Radcliffe starrer Victor Frankenstein, which previously occupied the October date, into that November release slot. Fox's move, however, is now causing a bit of a ripple effect with the first casualty being Gramercy's London Has Fallen, which has left the Oct. 2 date and now shuffled off to January 22, 2016. The film, a sequel to Olympus Has Fallen, is probably best suited for the cinematic dead zone anyway. Meanwhile, The Martian will still be facing off against Adam Jones starring Bradley Cooper, The Walk starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the limited release of Tom Hardy's Legend on Oct. 2 making for a rather packed weekend. »

Sony sets Release Date for Sequel to Antoine Fuqua‘s The Equalizer. Sony has officially given The Equalizer 2 a release date, providing complete assurance that this is actually happening. The Equalizer 2 will be released on September 29, 2017.
I haven’t seen the initial entry into this soon-to-be-franchise yet, but from what I’ve heard its a fairly average Denzel Is The Man action-thriller. I’ve seen my fair share of those, and don’t feel the need to spend time on the lesser ones. After all, can you get a cooler Denzel than the Man on Fire (2004), Training Day (2001), or American Gangster (2007) variety? In any case, Denzel Washington is set to return, no word on Antoine Fuqua yet.
On the production of the first film:

It has been announced this morning that the sequel to last year’s brutal, though brilliant actioner The Equalizer, will be released in the fourth quarter of 2017. 29th September, 2017 to be exact.
Denzel Washington will return to the lead role of Robert McCall, and The Equalizer 2 will be the first sequel in his glittering career. Richard Wenk, who wrote the first movie, and also the hits 16 Blocks and The Expendables 2, will pen the screenplay for The Equalizer 2.

Sony was so confident in The Equalizer, it got the ball rolling on a sequel months before the first one hit theaters. And now it looks like the studio’s franchise dreams are coming true.
