Prior to 1999, the British Academy Film and Television Awards were seen as the poor, but perfectly respectable, country cousin of their high-wattage American brethren. There were a number of reasons for this, chief among them the four-month time lag between U.S. and U.K. release dates, which saw a bizarre hike in prestige releases during April, when the BAFTA ceremony was traditionally held.
Until 1997, the event also included an extensive roll of television awards, which made for a long night, with the top film awards inevitably going to the same films honored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences two months earlier. The BAFTAs felt stale.
In 1999, however, the BAFTAs stepped up the glamour offensive. Elizabeth Taylor was honored with a BAFTA fellowship, presented by Michael Caine, while the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Cate Blanchett, and Christina Ricci walked the red carpet outside North London’s dowdy Business Design Centre. »

In 2015, Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel stuck two fingers up at the film industry with the Paolo Sorrentino directed Youth. It proved to the whole industry just because you’ve reached a certain age doesn’t mean you’ve lost your talent or appeal to the movie going public. In fact over the last few years we have seen actors such as Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman and Robert De Niro all prove they are all digging their heels in and not going anywhere.
Now it’s time for the ladies to get in on the act with Golden Globe-winner Dame Joan Collins – who we last saw make an appearance in last year’s Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie – Oscar nominee Pauline Collins (The Last Dragon Slayer, Albert Nobbs) and Italian heartthrob Franco Nero (Django, Django Unchained) all starring in the upcoming feel-good comedy, The Time of Their Lives »

Back in August of last year it was announced that Rebel Wilson had signed on to MGM’s remake of the 1988 Steve Martin/Michael Caine comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and now THR is reporting that she will joined in the cast by Anne Hathway.
The remake, titled Nasty Women, has been written by Jac Schaeffer (The Shower), and “will feature two women from different walks of life teaming up to con a tech prodigy out of his money.” Production is slated to get underway later this year, with Wilson serving as a producer as well as starring.

Michael Caine had an interesting run of genre flicks starting in the late ‘70s. The Swarm (1978) was laughed off the screen, Dressed to Kill (1980) was enjoyed by audiences and critics alike, and The Hand (1981) dropped his batting average once again. Nestled in between all those was The Island (1980), a killer pirate movie from the author of Jaws and directed by the man behind The Bad News Bears. What could go wrong? Well, everything, according to most folk. It’s an odd one to be sure, but the wild tonal shifts that prevent the ship from staying on a clear course make it a fascinating treasure that gets better with each viewing.
Released in June by Universal, The Island had a surefire pedigree for success; the Jaws juggernaut of producers Zanuck and Brown and author Peter Benchley (here, adapting his own novel) promised a good time to be had by all. »

Over eight years ago, talk of a Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake began. Hot Tub Time Machine director and Grosse Point Blank co-writer Steve Pink was hired to write and direct the remake, based on the wonderful comedy starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine, which was itself a remake of the 1964 film, Bedtime Story. Pink eventually departed from the project, which is up and running again with Rebel […]

One comment from Donald Trump in last year’s Us Presidential debates appears to have gone a long way. When he called Hillary Clinton a “nasty woman”, the term was picked up by her supporters, and #nastywomen was soon trending.
The team behind the remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels clearly noticed too, as the new take on the story will now go by the name of Nasty Women.
We already knew that Rebel Wilson was in line to take one of the two lead roles. Now we get the news that Anne Hathaway is in talks for the other lead role. The most recent take on the story saw Michael Caine and Steve Martin in the leads.
Hathaway has to wrap up Ocean’s Eight first, and Nasty Women also still needs a director. »

Six months on from the moment MGM secured Pitch Perfect‘s Rebel Wilson, Deadline is reporting today that Anne Hathaway has entered negotiations to climb aboard the studio’s female-led remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
Steve Martin and Michael Caine headlined Frank Oz’s original slapstick comedy back in ’88 but this time, it is Hathaway and Wilson that are seemingly poised to take point as two scam artists who put social differences to one side in order to steal a small fortune from a wildly successful tech prodigy. Hilarity and some good old-fashioned hustling ensue, and we understand that Jac Schaeffer – who last collaborated with Hathaway for Warner’s alien comedy The Shower – is attached to pen the screenplay for MGM. No word yet on who will direct the remake, but Deadline notes that Rebel Wilson has also signed on to produce alongside Roger Birnbaum.

Anne Hathaway continues scuffing up her otherwise squeaky-clean cinematic image. She’s already boarded the woman-led heists and hijinks of Ocean’s 8, and it looks like she’s going to continue in that confidence woman vein. Deadline reports that Hathaway is being courted by MGM to join the Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake that’s already ensnared Rebel Wilson. Hathaway and Wilson will play scam artists from different social strata who try to out-grift each other while swindling some “naïve tech prodigy.”
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is the latest film to get the remake and gender-reversal treatment—you might recall that Frank Oz directed Steve Martin and Michael Caine as the titular scamps in the original. There’s an added twist: the film’s been renamed Nasty Women. There’s no word on whether that’s a reference to Donald Trump’s attempts to disparage Hillary Clinton by calling her a ...

Exclusive: MGM is in talks with Anne Hathaway to team with Rebel Wilson in Nasty Women, the title of the Jac Schaeffer-scripted remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. The comedy gender-reverses the 1988 Frank Oz-directed film that starred Steve Martin and Michael Caine as con men who try to swindle an heiress. The title is clever, given the awareness it received when Donald Trump gave Hillary Clinton that moniker during the presidential debates. Hathaway and Wilson play the… »

Few characters have enjoyed as much reinvention as Arthur Conan Doyle's sleuth Sherlock Holmes, an enduring icon who is as much bound up with the history of cinema (and indeed stage, TV and radio) as he is with literature. Indeed, adaptations of Holmes stories stretch right the way back to the earliest days of film at the start of the 20th century. Fittingly enough given Holmes' penchant for a violin serenade, the musical scores to his adventures are as richly varied as the outcomes to his mysteries are unexpected. Here are Holmes' musical highlights, from Buster Keaton through to Benedict Cumberbatch.
