Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone linked to Vampire Chronicles

19 August 2014 8:39 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Josh Boone has been linked with Universal Pictures' Vampire Chronicles reboot.

The Fault in Our Stars director is believed to be in line for a film starring Anne Rice's Lestat de Lioncourt, reports The Wrap.

Brian Grazer, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are producing the project, after Universal and Imagine Entertainment acquired the rights to all existing and future books in the series.

The deal also includes the adapted screenplay for The Tale of the Body Thief, written by the author's son Christopher Rice.

The first film will reportedly be based on The Vampire Lestat, rather than Rice's first and most famous Vampire Chronicles novel Interview with the Vampire.

The latter was released as a film in 1994 starring Brad Pitt, Kirsten Dunst and Tom Cruise as Lestat.

A Queen of the Damned movie was released in 2002 starring Aaliyah and Stuart Townsend as Lestat.

Lauren Bacall: The real winner in 1953's 'How to Marry a Millionaire'

13 August 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

In the opening credits of 1953’s How to Marry a Millionaire, the onscreen billing order ran Betty Grable, Marilyn Monroe, and then Lauren Bacall—though it was advertised with Monroe billed first (the success of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes earlier that year put her well on her way to swooning super-stardom). Either way, Bacall came last.

But that didn’t stop the late actress from stealing the movie.

Before getting any further, it’s important to establish that this is the kind of movie where somebody wins. How to Marry a Millionaire is about three models who conspire to marry rich. »

This Compilation of Celebrity Audition Tapes Is a Must-Watch (Video)

11 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's hard to imagine BBC's "Sherlock" without Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch, or "Risky Business" without Tom Cruise, but celebrities have to audition before they land iconic roles -- and they're not always successful.

That's the takeaway from a new YouTube video that compiles dozens of audition tapes from some of Hollywood's biggest names, including the aforementioned trio, as well as Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert Downey Jr., Emma Stone, and Robert De Niro. We see Lindsay Lohan don a fake British accent for her "Parent Trap" tryout, while a babyfaced Scarlett Johansson reads for a role in "Jumanji" (which ultimately went to Kirsten Dunst).

Former Disney Channel starlets Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus are also included, auditioning for their breakout series "Wizards of Waverly Place" and "Hannah Montana," respectively, while current "Game of Thrones" stars Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner read for the roles of the Stark sisters.

Anne Rice's 'The Vampire Chronicles' Brings Its Bite Back to the Big Screen

8 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In case you haven't heard, vampires are cool again. They're haunting art houses in movies like "Only Lovers Left Alive" and the upcoming Iranian film "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night," not to mention "True Blood." Now Universal is getting into the fang-bangin' game with its acquisition of Anne Rice's series of novels, "The Vampire Chronicles." The deal encompasses everything from 1976's "Interview with the Vampire" and Christopher Rice's screenplay for "Tale of the Body Thief," to any future fang-tastic novels Rice might pen.

Although Rice had given up on vampires for a while, she's back in the bloody saddle again with "Prince Lestat," which is coming out just in time for Halloween. It will also be a handy way to jumpstart Rice's momentum. For a lot of us, Anne Rice is the O.G. author of the modern vampire novel, but she's also written about witches, werewolves, »

7 August 2014 4:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Our continuing look back at some of the biggest summers we've lived through takes us back 15 years to one of the best recent movie seasons overall. In honor of the 2014 summer movie season, Team HitFix will be delivering a mini-series of articles flashing back to key summers from years past. There will be one each month, diving into the marquee events of the era, their impact on the writer and their implications on today's multiplex culture. We continue today with a look back at the summer of 1999. It was the summer I became Moriarty. To be fair, I had been contributing to Ain't It Cool for a little while already by that point, and I had been slowly but surely embracing the potential of the website and the audience that I was reaching. I had already taken a few trips to Austin, including a memorable stay at the third Quentin Tarantino Film Festival, »

‘Cosmos’ Writer Ann Druyan on Science and Seth MacFarlane

5 August 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Over a vegetarian breakfast at the London in West Hollywood in June, writer Ann Druyan contemplated the “Cosmos.”

She had been there before as a writer on the first “Cosmos” series in 1980 when her husband, the late astrophysicist and astronomer Carl Sagan, invented the science-as-entertainment genre and himself became a pop cultural phenomenon.

This time around, she’s working with executive producer Seth MacFarlane, who knows a lot about creating pop phenoms and is a science buff to boot.

“I love the guy,” Druyan says. “There would be no ‘Cosmos’ without him.”

But back up several years ago, and at that time, Druyan says she felt a palpable antagonism to science in society. “If Carl had been alive, he would have continued that astonishing one-man campaign to engage the broader part of the public in science.”

She already had host Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium at the »

The Drop Dead Gorgeous Premiere Will Give You So Much '90s Nostalgia

Drop Dead Gorgeous was released 15 years ago this week, and we're celebrating by taking a time warp back to the movie's star-studded La premiere in 1999. Sure, at the time, Drop Dead Gorgeous was a flop - it only earned $10.5 million and received a lot of nasty reviews - but it has become a cult favorite for many as the years have passed thanks to its dark humor and offbeat charm. (And let's not forget that it launched the career of Amy Adams.) Keep scrolling to see your favorite late-'90s stars come together for the premiere, including a kerchief-wearing Shannon Elizabeth and Kirsten Dunst rocking body paint. »
