Denzel Washington May Be Planning A Trip To The Inner City With Nightcrawler’s Dan Gilroy

21 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Long-time screenwriter Dan Gilroy made a real splash with Nightcrawler in 2014, his directorial debut that thrust Jake Gyllenhaal into the role of a tortured, borderline sociopath crime paparazzo who stalked the streets of Los Angeles, chasing accidents and other tragedies as they happened in real time.

Lauded with praise across the board, there’s mooted excitement circling his latest, wholly original project Inner City as it begins to take shape. Pitched as a legal drama in the vein of Paul Newman’s The Verdict, Gilroy’s sophomore effort is reportedly on the verge of landing The Equalizer star Denzel Washington.

Per Variety, it’s understood negotiations are ongoing for a role that could see Washington muscle his way into Oscar territory once more, something that we haven’t necessarily seen from the esteemed acting great since Flight four years ago. In fact, Inner City appears to fall into a similar, »

25 August 2016 12:46 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After crafting one of the best directorial debuts of its respective year, we thought it would be fairly quick for writer-director Dan Gilroy to turn around with a follow-up. It’s taken a bit longer, but two years later, we finally have word of his next project — and the A-lister who may lead it.

Variety reports that Gilroy will next direct and write the legal drama Inner City with Denzel Washington currently eyeing the lead role. The project is described as “a character study in the vein of Paul Newman’s 1982 classic The Verdict,” directed by the great Sidney Lumet. Set in Los Angeles, not much else is known about the film yet, but studios are already circling the drama, including Netflix.

Meanwhile, Washington can be seen this fall in The Magnificent Seven and the highly-anticipated Fences, which he also directed. While much of the last decade for Washington has been action features and thrillers, »

Denzel Washington Circling Dan Gilroy’s Legal Drama ‘Inner City’ (Exclusive)

25 August 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Denzel Washington is eyeing the lead role in “Inner City,” a legal drama written and to be directed by Dan Gilroy.

The project is being billed as a character study in the vein of Paul Newman’s 1982 classic “The Verdict,” and could land two-time Oscar winner Washington back in the awards race.

The movie takes place in Los Angeles, the familiar gritty setting of “Nightcrawler,” which was Gilroy’s directorial debut after three decades of screenwriting. That 2014 film, starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a troubled crime paparazzo (who also chased ambulances), grossed $32 million domestically on a $8.5 million budget.

Jennifer Fox is producing “Inner City.”

Click to skip The Light Between Oceans - Sept 2nd

Why You Should See It: Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander are currently two of Hollywood's most in demand talents and seeing them lighting up the screen together, in a Derek Cianfrance film no less, should be a treat.

Morgan - Sept 2nd

‘Masters Of Sex’ Star Lizzy Caplan Starring In Dark Comedy ‘Friend Of Bill’

21 August 2016 2:05 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

For those who aren’t fans of Masters of Sex and/or Lizzy Caplan, Friend of Bill might be a film that doesn’t quite rocket to the top of the “Must See” list, but there’s much to recommend here.

If nothing else, the fact that this is the same production collaboration that brought you Welcome to Me should be enough to get people to pay attention. That film, an Indie gem starring Kristen Wiig, was on my list of the year’s best, and this one looks just as interesting.

While not quite as offbeat in its premise as Welcome to Me, Friend of Bill has Lizzy Caplan playing a writer who is arrested for public intoxication, and forced to take a sabbatical. This leads to her return to her small hometown, where she has to deal with her mother, and two suitors while she struggles with sobriety. »

Let’s get to it and find out what I’ve settled on this time around… What you’ll see below is some across the board tinkering with my Oscar nomination guesses, including one big removal of a previously huge contender from the major categories.

The studio has three high-profile projects due to drop before the end of the year — Denis Villeneuve‘s “Arrival,” Robert Zemeckis‘ “Allied,” and Denzel Washington‘s “Fences” — which leaves the director’s upcoming “Silence” as a bit of a question mark.

Critics’ Choice Awards Jump Ahead of Oscar Season Fray

18 August 2016 12:05 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

By moving up their annual A&E Network show from January 17 to December 11, the Critics Choice Awards will become the first major televised award show of the season. For several years they aired on Oscar nominations Thursday, but last year aired after the Golden Globes.

This also moves up the date that the film critics will submit their ballots by about two weeks. Even on the old schedule, they barely screened “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” before their voting deadline last year. Will they be able to see all the films in time? Such likely late entries as Ben Affleck’s “Live By Night,” Denzel Washington’s “Fences” and Martin Scorsese’s “Silence” may not be screened by then.

Inside Nate Parker's Troubled Childhood and Rise to Hollywood After College Rape Case

Nate Parker became an overnight sensation in Hollywood after his film The Birth of a Nation, which he wrote, starred in, directed and produced, earned universal praise, scoring an unprecedented $17 million deal at the Sundance Film Festival and earning him glowing comparisons to Orson Welles.
