'The Little Mermaid' Casts Chloe Grace Moretz, Script By 'Love Actually' Writer

9 November 2015 2:20 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

To us, she is perfect! Chloe Grace Moretz is going under the sea in the live-action "The Little Mermaid" movie, Variety reports. They said Richard Curtis -- the smart/funny writer of "Love Actually," "Four Weddings and a Funeral," "Notting Hill," and pretty much everything that Hugh Grant ever did right -- is in talks to write the script.

No one is on board to direct yet, at least officially, which is kind of a problem. Sofia Coppola dropped out back in late May/early June. At the time, Kelly Marcel, Abi Morgan, and Caroline Thompson had been taking passes on the script.

It's not clear yet how much this movie will follow the Hans Christian Andersen story of a mermaid who wants to be human after saving a man from drowning. Disney's 1989 animated movie was hugely popular, but you have to imagine the live-action version will want to put its own stamp on things. »

25 great movie performances by actors in multiple roles

5 November 2015 1:41 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




From Thomas F Wilson in Back To The Future to Nicolas Cage and John Travolta in Face/Off - when actors play multiple roles...

The dramatic use of actors playing multiple characters is a bold and rather theatrical device that has its ups and downs. It goes at least as far back as Captain Hook being played by the same actor who plays the Darling children's father in stage productions of Peter Pan, a technique largely adopted in film adaptations of the story, too (hello to Jason Isaacs).

It's used a lot in cinema too. Done well, it's impressive, but when it's bad, it's Jack & Jill. Whether used in comedy or drama or outright horror, there are countless examples of actors delivering terrific performances in more than one role at once, and that's before we even get past Cloud Atlas. Still, we've had a go at totting up 25 of the best. »

From Child Star to Leading Man: The Rise and Rise of Nicholas Hoult

4 November 2015 9:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sara Hemrajani on the rise of Nicholas Hoult

The transition from child star to serious adult actor has always been notoriously difficult – for every triumph there seems to be double the number of failures. But one talent defying the odds is Nicholas Hoult. He joined the business as a 7-year-old, and now, nearly two decades on, is booking top parts and even launching films at the Cannes and Venice festivals.

Hoult’s forthcoming releases range from Rebel in the Rye, where he’ll portray reclusive author J.D. Salinger, to Collide, a drug smuggling drama with Anthony Hopkins, Felicity Jones and Ben Kingsley.

Let’s take a look at how he kept his career and profile on the rise:

About a Boy – Hoult famously embraced a goofy pudding bowl haircut and pitchy singing for his breakout film role in 2002’s About a Boy. The adaptation of Nick Hornby’s novel sees »

Afm: Pathe Intl. Paints ‘Cezanne et moi’ (Exclusive)

4 November 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Pathe Intl. has boarded vet Gallic scribe/helmer Daniele Thompson’s “Cezanne et moi,” a 19th-century period drama toppling Guillaume Canet, pictured, and Guillaume Gallienne as two French culture’s legends, the novelist Emile Zola and post-impressionist painter Paul Cezanne.

The ambitious drama chronicles the complex, decade-long friendship between Cezanne, who was born into a wealthy family but struggled to make a living as a painter, and Zola, who came from a poor background but achieved fame and prosperity as a politically-engaged novelist.

Exploring the pair’s fears and ambitions, the movie charts their relationship through the early days in Aix-en-Provence, their arrival in Paris’ absinthe-soaked cultural scene and their diverging professional and sentimental experiences.

Pathe has taken international sales and will start shopping the pic at Afm, where it will unveil the first images of the movie.

From Notting Hill to Hampstead: which other London areas deserve movies?

21 October 2015 2:43 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Diane Keaton is filming in Hampstead Heath, providing a cinematic sheen to a new part of the capital. But it’s a big city: here’s where Hollywood should go next

Notting Hill (the movie) is now 16 years old. That’s 16 years of attention that Notting Hill (the place) never really deserved. The success of that film meant that hundreds of thousands of foreign tourists must have found themselves travelling three stops further down the Central line than they really needed to, only to spend 15 minutes getting drizzled on outside M&S while they looked for Hugh Grant, then glumly going home again.

But all that might be about to end. The director of Last Chance Harvey – itself a Notting Hill for the South Bank in all but name – has just persuaded Diane Keaton and Brendan Gleeson to star in a film called Hampstead. It’s about an American widow »

20 October 2015 3:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Coming to ITV this Sunday is Charlie Higson's new superhero take on Jekyll & Hyde. Here's what we learned on set this summer...

It's not every day you see Richard E. Grant and Tom Bateman tussling in an underground bunker. Visiting the set of ITV’s superhero-retelling of Jekyll & Hyde in the outskirts of London this June, that’s exactly what we got.

The new show, a 1930s adaptation of the oft-retold Robert Louis Stevenson novel, focuses on Robert Jekyll, the grandson of Edward Hyde and inheritor of the family’s dark secret. It’s 19th Century literature with a modern superhero twist, and fully intends to take over Sunday-night family viewing.

The show, which premieres this Sunday at 6.30pm on ITV, filmed its first ten-episode series in London over the summer. With a gaggle of other journalists, Den of Geek visited the set and chatted with »

Bridget Jones’ Baby Locked For September 2016

The cameras, they are a-rolling on romantic-comedy sequel Bridget Jones’ Baby, and with Working Title setting up shop in London, England at the beginning of the month, the studio has now slated the film for a nationwide release across the States on September 16, 2016.

Welcoming back both Renée Zellweger and Colin Firth – on board as a pregnant Bridget Jones and on-again, off-again love interest Mark Darcy – the long-awaited new chapter in the cult series is being directed by none other than Sharon Macguire, following her genre-defining work with the beloved 2001 original. Whether she can recapture the charm and blunt humor of Bridget Jones’ Diary is up for question, though Macguire will be working from a script she co-wrote with One Day scribe David Nicholls.

But the question remains: just how is the father of Bridget’s child? Presuming Maguire and Nicholls want to keep the story focused, one would assume that »
