Samuel L. Jackson Reportedly Wanted for Johnny Cochran Role in Ryan Murphy's "Crime" Franchise

17 December 2014 4:15 PM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Cuba Gooding Jr.and Sarah Paulson previously booked the lead roles of O.J. Simpson and prosecutor Marcia Clark in prolific award-winning producer Ryan Murphy's follow-up to his hit "American Horror Story" franchise, to be titled "American Crime Story" - a companion anthology focused each season on a different true crime story, which made headlines. Roger Friedman at Showbiz 411 is now reporting that producers want David Schwimmer to play Robert Kardashian, although he has yet to commit; and if he doesn't, Tim Roth is apparently waiting anxiously in line to take the job. But even more interesting is that Ryan Murphy reportedly wants Samuel L. »

David Oyelowo and Ava DuVernay Talk Selma, Bringing Martin Luther King Jr. To Life On Screen, Their Most Memorable Scene, and More

16 December 2014 10:10 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Selma is a beautifully designed film that not only hits you emotionally in the gut, but also makes you feel for the humanity that the Civil Rights movement was fighting for.  While Martin Luther King Jr. was just a man, he spoke for and to people willing to defy intimidation, face economic retaliation, and endure arrests and beatings, all in hopes of provoking a transformative confrontation that would give African Americans the basic rights that they so desperately wanted and deserved.  Expertly directed by Ava DuVernay, the film stars David Oyelowo (in an award-worthy performance as Dr. King), Carmen Ejogo, Tom Wilkinson, Tim Roth, Oprah Winfrey, Andre Holland, Common, Giovanni Ribisi, Tessa Thompson, Dylan Baker, Alessandro Nivola and Omar Dorsey. During a roundtable interview at the film’s press day, actor David Oyelowo and director Ava DuVernay talked about taking on someone so very well known, never hesitating in showing »

‘Selma’ Cast, Director Wear ‘I Can’t Breathe’ Shirts at N.Y. Premiere

14 December 2014 11:19 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Parties and protests don’t typically overlap, but the “Selma” cast made an exception and a statement on Sunday night following the film’s Manhattan premiere. At one point during the otherwise splashy festivities, director Ava DuVernay took to the steps of the New York Public Library with actors David Oyelowo, E. Roger Mitchell, Wendell Pierce, Omar DorseyJohn Lavelle, Stephan James, Kent Faulcon, Lorraine Toussaint, Andre Holland, Tessa Thompson and Colman Domingo, donning “I Can’t Breathe” T-shirts over their partywear and raising their arms in the “don’t shoot” pose.

It was not just an unusually sobering photo op, but also a direct acknowledgment of the eerie timing of Paramount’s civil rights drama, with its scenes of organized protest and its urgent plea for justice and reform. The premiere was held the same weekend that more than 25,000 men and women marched through Manhattan, in the largest protest »

Ava DuVernay is 'stunned' over her Golden Globe directing nod for 'Selma'

11 December 2014 3:16 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One of the nicest surprises from this morning's 2015 Golden Globe nominations was the love the Hollywood Foreign Press Association bestowed upon Ava DuVernay's "Selma." The dramatic story behind the historic 1965 Selma-to-Birmingham march earned four nominations including Best Picture - Drama, Best Original Song ("Glory" by John Legend and Common), Best Actor in a Drama (David Oyelowo) and Best Director (DuVernay). It's somewhat disheartening that DuVernay is only the fifth woman nominated by the HFPA (still more than the Academy Awards for the moment) and the first African-American one, but this sort of love for one of the best pictures of the year? We can only hope Oscar is listening. DuVernay and Oyelowo were in Toronto this morning following a special Tiff screening last night. She jumped on the phone to chat about the big day. *** HitFix: Congratulations Ava! How is Toronto? Where were you when you heard about the nominations? »

Quentin Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight' Begins Production

11 December 2014 11:38 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just before the Thanksgiving holiday last month, Samuel L. Jackson gave fans the first look at part of Quentin Tarantino's assembled cast of The Hateful Eight during a rehearsal session. Yesterday, the actor gave fans our first look at the set in Colorado as production got under way on this highly-anticipated revenge Western. Hopefully this will be just the first of several photos as production continues, but we'll have to wait and see.

We reported back in September that director Quentin Tarantino will start shooting The Hateful Eight on December 8, somewhere in southwestern Colorado. The Colorado state film commissioner David Zimmerman confirmed that "the whole movie's going to be shot here," with sets to be built on an existing ranch. Colorado awarded the production with a $5 million tax incentive to shoot in the state, which represents 20% of the film's Colorado budget. The project will be the first major motion »

David Oyelowo’s Preparation to Portray Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in ‘Selma’

11 December 2014 8:21 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

British actor David Oyelowo’s portrayal of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Ava DuVernay’s Selma has received praise since the film premiered at AFI Fest. The Hollywood Reporter’s Stephen Farber said, “His rousing speeches are superbly done, and his moments of introspection and self-doubt retrieve the humanity in a leader who has come to seem larger than life.”

Now, he isn’t the only British actor playing a Southerner in the film: Tom Wilkinson embodies President Lyndon B. Johnson while Tim Roth depicts Governor George Wallace.

Oyelowo will receive this year’s Palm Springs International Film Festival’s Breakthrough Performance Award, and if he earns an Oscar nomination for his role as King, it wouldn’t be the first time an actor landed a nomination for personifying an iconic figure from a different country: American actress Meryl Streep won for her portrayal »

30 years since Gremlins: Stars of the Christmas cult classic then and now

9 December 2014 9:15 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without a heavily tinseled tree, a tipple before midday and Gremlins on the telly at some point during the day.

The Joe Dante-directed black cult comedy sees protagonist Billy Peltzer being gifted with Gizmo, a cute furry Mogwai discovered by his inventor father in a mysterious Chinatown antique store.

Of course the creature comes with three special instructions which, if not adhered to, result in the spawning of grizzly Gremlins hell-bent on havoc.

The Steven Spielberg-produced movie - which is

currently being fast-tracked by Warner Bros for a remake - celebrated its 30th anniversary earlier this year, and here's what the main cast members got up to after the movie's success:

Zach Galligan plays William 'Billy' Peltzer who becomes enthralled by his unusual Christmas gift - yet careless with the three golden Gizmo rules.

Must Watch: UK Trailer For Martin Luther King Jr. Biopic ‘Selma’ Starring David Oyelowo

6 December 2014 9:22 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s not often a movie trailer gives you shivers but the historic nature of Martin Luther King Jr.’s story gave me that reaction, and in a truly positive way after watching this first UK trailer for Selma. The film focuses around the civil rights marches that, very literally, changed America and had a rippling affect forever across the world. The story of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s struggle to secure voting rights for African-Americans opens in UK cinemas on 6th February, 2015 with next year also marking the 50th anniversary of this pivotal moment in the Us Civil Rights Movement and this triumphant story of the power of the people.

Selma stars the brilliant Brit actor David Oyelowo as Martin Luther King Jr. with direction coming from Ava DuVernay. There’s also an impressive supporting cast that includes Tom Wilkinson as President Lyndon B. Johnson, Tim Roth as »

Pulp Fiction 20th Anniversary Retrospective

5 December 2014 4:45 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Jules: “You know what they call a Quarter-Pounder with Cheese in Paris?”

1994. The year Justin Bieber and Harry Styles were born – luckily the world was not ready yet for those two (was it ever ready?) and instead, we had actual art like Pulp Fiction to lift us from the grave, like The Bride in Kill Bill Vol.2. Interestingly, much like The Bride Pulp Fiction had to fight through the suffocating dirt that went with making an independent film in the 90s. Before we delve further in to the humble beginnings of the iconic film, 1994 was the year Dumb And Dumber, The Shawshank Redemption, Forrest Gump, The Lion King, Interview With The Vampire and Natural Born Killers were released. Not a bad year for film you could say, certainly for a young kid growing up then. I must admit, I wasn’t totally aware of Pulp Fiction at that time, but »

Turnin’ the Beat Around: DuVernay’s Poignant, Passionate Mlk Portrait Revitalizes Notions of Biopic

Eschewing what’s come to resemble a traditional route in downplaying both the significant violence and vile truth concerning historical depictions of racial injustices, Ava DuVernay throws all the euphemisms out the window for her excellent third feature, Selma. A depiction of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s mounting of the civil rights marches in 1965, DuVernay’s entry is the most significant cinematic depiction of the famed historical figure to date, though the film explores only one (significant) moment from his esteemed career. Those who may sniff at such material arriving just in time for awards superbaiting should be made aware that the film is anything but a carrot poised conveniently in front of the film industry’s chomping mandible, as it’s the kind of material that transcends such accolades whether they are bestowed upon it or not. »

Awakenings, part 2 by Anne-Katrin Titze

27 November 2014 12:16 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Christopher Abbott as Andrew with Brady Corbet as Ira in Mona Fastvold's hauntingly beautiful The Sleepwalker.

Brady Corbet, who pops up in Bertrand Bonello's exquisite portrait of the tortured artist Saint Laurent, Mia Hansen-Løve's Eden and the incisive Clouds Of Sils Maria by Olivier Assayas, talked about the banality of evil and the evil of banality, as our Sleepwalker conversation turned to Amy Berg's An Open Secret. Mona Fastvold and Corbet's upcoming project, The Childhood of a Leader, which he is going to direct, will star Bérénice Bejo, Tim Roth, Stacy Martin and Robert Pattinson. The script is influenced by everyone from John Fowles and Jean-Paul Sartre, to Volker Schlöndorff's Young Törless. I suggested checking out Christian Kracht's cinematic novel Imperium in the Norwegian translation for last minute reading, as pre-production begins next week.

14 Lies Everyone Tells But Nobody Admits

25 November 2014 3:56 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lies. Fibs. Deception. Dishonesty. Porkies. Tall Tales.

Let’s be honest for a second, no matter what you call it you are bound to tell a few little lies here and there once in a while. It’s part of our human nature to tell lies to defend ourselves. However, there are a few common little slip ups that everyone has said at least once or twice in their lifetime but you can forget it if you think anyone is going to own up to it anytime soon. Shame on all of us.

We know there is a large difference between little white lies and huge blunders. There are many reasons why people would feel motivated to tell porkies as Jim Carrey shows us in Liar Liar (1997) that lying can be good sometimes when we are trying so desperately to get out of a situation we don’t want to be in. »

The Sleepwalker director/writer Mona Fastvold and co-writer/actor Brady Corbet: "Yes, juxtapositions are what we've been looking for." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

Director/writer Mona Fastvold and co-writer/actor Brady Corbet of The Sleepwalker, starring Gitte Witt, Christopher Abbott, Stephanie Ellis and Corbet, connect Michael Haneke's Caché and Funny Games, in which Corbet starred with Naomi Watts, Tim Roth and Michael Pitt, to Ingmar Bergman's Hour Of The Wolf and Andrei Tarkovsky's Solaris. We discussed Borderline Films' productions of Sean Durkin's Martha Marcy May Marlene and Simon Killer by Antonio Campos and how it began for Corbet. Lars von Trier's love of Douglas Sirk and Melancholia led the discussion to the films of Claire Denis, Bruno Dumont, Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne. Scarlett Johansson's performance in Jonathan Glazer's Under The Skin in contrast to an Aki Kaurismäki film conjures up choices for all filmmakers to consider. »
