Real estate scion and accused murderer Robert Durst has had his story told several times, but not by him. Durst declined all interview requests until shortly before the release of the 2010 fictional movie based on his life, All Good Things, starring Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst. At that point, Durst called the distributor, Magnolia Pictures, and the company put him in touch with All Good Things director Andrew Jarecki. Durst wanted to tell his story to Jarecki, and the six-part HBO documentary series The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst is the result of those conversations.

Brr it's cold in here, there must be some Clovers in the atmosphere! It's been almost 15 years since cult-hit "Bring It On" was released, but that doesn't mean we've forgotten about the classic 2000's teen-comedy. And apparently neither has infamous Clovers cheerleader, Gabrielle Union. In a recent interview with Yahoo Style, the "Being Mary Jane" star dished on who she thought could fill the shoes of the original cast members. The movie follows a champion high school cheerleading squad that discovers their former captain stole all their winning routines from an inner-city school. The 42-year-old actress was on point when she recast the movie with several of today's hottest young stars. First, she picked Keke Palmer as her character, Clover captain, Isis. Next, she chose Dakota Fanning as head Toros chearleader Torrance, played by Kirsten Dunst in the movie. Last, and probably the most surprising recasting was Selena Gomez as bad-girl Missy, »

This October will mark 15 years since Bring It On hit theaters, and in a new interview with Yahoo! Style, Gabrielle Union is revealing who she would cast in a remake of the beloved cheerleading film that made her a star.
And we gotta say, we completely agree with her choices.
Gabrielle, now 42, reveals she would pick Masters of Sex star Keke Palmer to play her own role (Isis, the captain of the East Compton Clovers squad) and Dakota Fanning to play Kirsten Dunst's Torrance, the captain of the Toro cheerleading squad. Rounding out the lead parts in her mind is Selena Gomez as Eliza Dushku's "bad-girl" Missy.

While Gabrielle has clearly made a name for herself beyond her breakout role more than a decade ago, in the candid new interview, the outspoken actress opens up about everything from her thoughts on current race relations, and why she »
What will February bring to Netflix? "House of Cards" returns for its much awaited third season, but not until Feb. 27. If you can't wait for your Kevin Spacey fix until then, "Now: In the Wings on a World Stage" (2014), a documentary of Spacey starring in a production of Shakespeare's "Richard III," is available on Feb. 1.
And the 2004 "King Arthur," starring Clive Owen and Keira Knightley, isn't exactly Shakespearean, but look at how many great actors -- like Mads Mikkelsen, Ioan Gruffudd, Hugh Dancy and Joel Edgerton -- have gone on to much bigger things.
You can also stream "Joe," one of Nicolas Cage's best films in recent years; the overlooked indie "The Brothers Bloom" with Mark Ruffalo, Adrien Brody and Rachel Weisz; and the barely-in-theaters thriller "The Two Faces of January," starring Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst.
Here's a much larger rundown of what's new on Netflix in February 2015, provided by Netflix. »

There have been a lot of questions regarding the second season of FX's beloved, Golden Globe-winning "Fargo," which capped off whirlwind first season in pretty definitive fashion. Initially series creator Noah Hawley (working from the equally revered Coen Brothers movie of the same name) said that the second season would go into the past, to a story recounted in the first season by Lou Solverson (Keith Carradine, to be played by Patrick Wilson in this new season), about some criminal activity he investigated following his return from Vietnam. After the TCA winter press tour, FX CEO John Langraf shared some additional details with Entertainment Weekly.
"It covers something that was referenced in the first installment by Lou Solverson, Molly Solverson's [Allison Tolman] father," Langraf told EW. "It's a big sprawling, in some ways, more comedic [season], though at times, a very serious show. It's set in the late '70s against the backdrop »

The art of creating a successful mystery seems to be lost on many of today’s filmmakers and their films. Instead of allowing a solid story to play out in front of you and keep you guessing, a lot of films falling into the mystery/thriller genre tend to utilize the same ol’ twists and turns we’ve all seen time and time again. When a film comes along and offers a story full of suspense and surprise, it’s a surprise and a very refreshing one at that. Luckily, Drive screenwriter Hossein Amini’s feature directorial debut, The Two Faces Of January, is just that type of film, one that keeps you guessing until the very end.

FX’s “Fargo” has added Keir O’Donnell.
O’Donnell will play Ben Schmidt in the second installment of the series. Described as “ambitious and driven,” he was “that kid who narced on other kids.”
O’Donnell was most recently seen in “American Sniper,” which just earned an Oscar nomination for best picture. He can be seen next in the Jason Blum pic “Incarnate.” He is repped by UTA and Visionary Entertainment.

Leslye Headland was last at Sundance for the premiere of her 2012 film "Bachelorette," with Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan and Rebel Wilson. Since then she has developed some projects for television and wrote the script for the Kevin Hart film, "About Last Night." Headlan's latest film, "Sleeping with Other People," revisits similar themes of modern relationships. Years after impulsively losing their virginity to each other in college, Lainey (Alison Brie) and Jake (Jason Sudeikis) meet at a support group in New York ("What's a nice girl like you doing at a sex addicts meeting?"). A spark resurfaces, but they've walked this road before. Abject failures in romance who lead lives of serial infidelity and self-sabotage, they agree to a platonic friendship to mutually support their recovery—and what's more supportive than teaching your friend proper self-stimulation? Can love bloom while you're sleeping with other people? What it's about: characters »

"The engagement is coming soon," a source tells Us, adding that Hedlund moving in "strengthened their relationship."

Jeff Nichols has been a steadily rising director since his excellent 2007 debut, Shotgun Stories, which first united him with star Michael Shannon, who has gone on to appear in all his features since. 2011’s Take Shelter, starring Shannon and Jessica Chastain, premiered at Sundance before hitting Cannes, while 2012’s Mud played in the main competition at Cannes before heading to Sundance. Each film has seen a significant increase in production value, so we’re not surprised to find Nichols finally working on a studio financed production with Midnight Special, starring Joel Edgerton, Kirsten Dunst, Adam Driver, and returning cast members Shannon and Sam Shepard. A sci-fi film concerning a father and son that go on the run after discovering his child has special powers, this recalls a heyday of adult studio genre films from the 1980s, perhaps Stephen King’s Firestarter (1984)?

Aww geez, everybody loves Fargo. The FX miniseries beat out Starz's The Missing and HBO's Olive Kitteridge, True Detective and The Normal Heart to take home the Golden Globe for Best Miniseries or TV Movie. The first season of Fargo starred Colin Hanks, Allison Tolman, Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton. Thornton took home the Best Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie trophy. "These days you get in a lot of trouble, no matter what you say," Thornton said while accepting his award. "So I'm just going to say thank you." The second season of Fargo is set to star Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson, Jean Smart, Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons. It's set in the 1970s with Wilson playing Lou »
Word broke last month that Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons would be part of the ensemble for the second season of the Fargo-based TV series, which spins new takes on Coen brothers films into dark telly comedy drama. We now know that Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson, Nick Offerman and Jean Smart will be joining them for the show, which will be set in 1979.Wilson will star as Lou Solverson, a clean-cut Minnesota state patrolman, four years back from Vietnam, where he served in the Navy. A humble and competent man, Lou is a devoted husband to his wife Betsy, and father to four-year-old Molly. Danson will be Hank Larsson, the sheriff of Rock County, Minnesota. An unflappable World War II vet who embodies a certain cowboy poetry, Hank is Lou’s father-in-law. Parks And Recreation star Offerman is Karl Weathers, the town lawyer of Luverne, Minnesota.

There are a handful more interviews (at least) on the way given that the film year doesn't end until the Oscars are handed out and other films are still playing -- so we'll keep updating this particular page as we did in previous years (linked below). Nathaniel leaves for Los Angeles for the Critics Choice awards mid week and Michael we'll join him at Sundance the following week. It's high season! Can you handle all of these things happening at once every day?
If you've missed any of our chats, they're listed below. It's one of the only perks of a life of movie blogging to be able to meet talented people and grill them about their gifts and work (albeit in a usually rushed way!). Hope you enjoy reading them!

Yesterday, Fargo made some huge casting announcements for its second season. The FX anthology series, which had already snagged Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst for lead roles in Season 2, has now cast a trio talented actors to join them, as it is official that Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson, and Jean Smart will be playing major characters. Wilson will star as the younger Lou Solverson (who was originally played by Keith Carradine in Fargo Season 1), “a clean cut Minnesota State Patrolman, four years back from Vietnam, where he served in the Navy. A humble and competent man, Lou is a devoted husband to his wife and father to four-year-old Molly.” (I’m a big fan of Wilson but, like Hitfix’s Dan Feinberg, I’m really disappointed that Fargo didn’t go with The Killing‘s Joel Kinnaman.) Meanwhile, Danson will play Hank Larsson, “the Sheriff of Rock County, Minnesota. An unflappable WWII vet who… »

I've written before about my love for the FX original series Fargo, and just a couple of days ago I wrote about how showrunner Noah Hawley mentioned that season two would be "a lot bigger" than the first season. Part of the growth of the show includes an expanded cast, and ever since it was announced that the second season would revolve around a young Lou Solverson (played wonderfully by Keith Carradine), I wondered who Hawley would cast to step into that character's shoes. ComingSoon reports that The Conjuring star Patrick Wilson will play a young Solverson, which is a fantastic choice. Wilson has been doing consistently great work for the past few years, and I'm really looking forward to seeing him take the lead on one of the most cinematic and well-written shows on TV.
