The news that 1964 classic Mary Poppins is getting a sequel hasn’t gone down well with some, but the fact Emily Blunt is taking over the role made famous by Julie Andrews has helped. It also doesn’t hurt that director Rob Marshall is assembling one hell of a cast. The latest addition looks set to […]

Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke may be in ‘Mary Poppins 2’

8 August 2016 3:02 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Mary Poppins sequel Mary Poppins Returns is set to go into production very soon for a release on Christmas Day, 2018 with Emily Blunt in the title role and Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda in a supporting role, but it looks like the two main stars of the original movie may be back too.

Those two stars are the original Mary Poppins herself, Julie Andrews and co-star Dick Van Dyke, who played lovable cockney Bert. The news is being reported by E! Online, and there wasn’t any elaboration as to who they may play, but we’re guessing that their roles may just be cameos.

The film will be set in Depression-era London, where a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, along with Michael’s three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, »

Original Mary Poppins Cast to Return in Mary Poppins 2?

6 August 2016 2:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been over fifty years since Disney's timeless classic Mary Poppins first hit theater screens way back in 1964. But that isn't stopping the studio from creating what could be a very magical sequel all these years later. Though Emily Blunt will take over the iconic role of the magical nanny in Mary Poppins Returns, the original Mary is reportedly returning along with her better half.

Yes, that's right! Apparently Disney is set on reuniting original stars Julie Andrews, who played the title character, and Dick Van Dyke, who played Bert, the always chipper chimney sweep, in this rollicking musical follow-up. Rob Marshall is already set to direct the sequel, and Lin-Manuel Miranda is co-starring in the movie after a powerful and very lucrative turn on Broadway in his award-winning Hamilton stage play.

At this moment in time, details about Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke's new characters are being kept under wraps. »

Thank you for being here today and for 15 years, ‘Princess Diaries’

3 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For over six decades, Disney has been igniting in little girls the dream of being a princess. Then, in 2001, with the help of Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway, the House of Mouse showed us that wearing the tiara is not all it’s cracked up to be. The Princess Diaries opened in theaters 15 years ago today. Hathaway’s Mia Thermopiles learns just what kind of pressure and responsibility is involved with being princess when she learns she’s the heir to the crown of Genovia. “I don’t want to run my own country. I just want to pass 10th grade,” she moans. It was the film debut of Anne Hathaway, who has since become Hollywood royalty herself, earning an Oscar for Les Misérables and nabbing coveted roles like Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. The Princess Diaries gave us Anne Hathaway, and it also gave us »

The upcoming Mary Poppins sequel just got even better.

Yup, the original Mary Poppins and Bert! Details about their appearance are unknown. A rep for Andrews says there have been "no discussions" about the Hollywood legends popping up in the film. The original 1964 film won five Oscars, including the best actress in a leading role statuette going to Andrews.

Practically perfect: Meryl Streep to play Mary Poppins' cousin in Disney sequel

29 July 2016 1:20 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Reuniting with Emily Blunt, the actor will play Topsy Tartlet, a supporting role who didn’t feature in the 1964 Julie Andrews version of Pl Travers’s book

Meryl Streep is set to sing once more, joining Emily Blunt and Hamilton star Lin Manuel-Miranda in Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns.

Sources have told Variety that Streep is being lined up to play Poppins’s cousin by marriage, Topsy Tartlet. Topsy is a maid who, in Pl Travers’s Mary Poppins Comes Back, marries Arthur Turvy – so changing her name to Topsy Turvy. The character did not feature in the 1964 film starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, which Travers famously hated.

Newswire: Meryl Streep in talks to join Mary Poppins Returns

28 July 2016 6:15 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Believing that it might be worth getting one of those fun Oscar nominations for, Meryl Streep has reportedly entered talks for a role in Disney’s Mary Poppins sequel—which is still called Mary Poppins Returns, even though that’s a little silly. This comes from Variety, which says Streep would be playing Mary Poppins’ cousin Topsy, a character who Julie Andrews’ Poppins never felt the need to mention in the original film even though she’s apparently important enough to be played by Meryl freakin’ Streep. Variety notes that Streep will sing in the film if they reach a deal, and it’ll also reunite her with Into The WoodsRob Marshall and Emily Blunt, who are directing and starring in Returns (respectively).

Mary Poppins Returns will be set years after the original film, with grown-up Jane and Michael Banks once again running into Mary Poppins after “a personal »

Hector Elizondo Talks About Working on All 18 of Garry Marshall’s Movies

26 July 2016 11:10 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The one staple of every Gary Marshall movie was a supporting role for Hector Elizondo. The two first met in 1978 and quickly became close friends and collaborators. With Marshall’s passing last week at the age of 81, Elizondo spoke to Variety’s Ramin Setoodeh about some of his favorite memories from their 18-movie partnership that started with 1982’s “Young Doctors in Love” and continued through last spring’s “Mother’s Day.”   

Hector Elizondo: Garry Marshall didn’t say funny things. He said things funny. He had a way of looking at the world. A unique Garry sound. He didn’t like it when people made a big deal of little things. If you brought something to the table, he was open to it. The first thing he’d ask when a new actor came on set was, “Did you eat?” That was a big thing for him: “Get him some food!” You »

Marni Nixon Remembered: A Wonderful Collaborator, Even if Natalie Wood Didn’t Agree

25 July 2016 5:41 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“You are the writer, but I am the author!”

When famed ghost-singer Marni Nixon said those words to me, her ghostwriter, I didn’t quite understand how any of it would work. I had written previous books on my own (“That Book about That Girl,” “Noel Coward: A Bio-bibliography”), but had never been a ghostwriter before. And aren’t they one and the same: author and writer?

What I eventually learned from that “Marni-ese” was that it was all about collaboration. Over the course of a year and a half of intense back and forth work on her memoirs, “I Could Have Sung All Night” (which we almost called “Audrey Hepburn Dubbed My Face”), I came to realize that Marni Nixon was the consummate collaborator.

She was dubbed “the ghostess with the mostest” by Time Magazine when it became public knowledge that she had dubbed Deborah Kerr, Natalie Wood »

Director/ writer/ actor Gary Marshall dies at age 81

22 July 2016 9:49 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

On Tuesday July 19, Hollywood lost a giant in the world of comedy with the passing of beloved director/writer/producer/actor Gary Marshall at the age of 81. While most of the news outlets focused in on his considerable work in television (he practically owned Tuesday nights in the 1970’s with his “Happy Days” empire), this site would like to salute Mr. Marshall’s work on both sides of the camera.

After impressive writing credits on many of the classic sitcoms of the 1960’s, it was inevitable that the movie studios would tap him to contribute to several screenplays. The first was produced in 1968, a marriage comedy starring James Garner and Debbie Reynolds, How Sweet It Is. A youth-oriented romantic comedy starring Jacqueline Bisset, The Grasshopper, was released in 1970. TV triumphs quickly followed, so Marshall’s movie career was put on hold for more than a dozen years. 1982 was the year »
