Kate Hudson: 'Marriage Is Not a Golden Ticket'

15 September 2014 3:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Kate Hudson has been engaged to rocker Matthew Bellamy for more than three years, but the long wait doesn't bother her. "Were working, it's a long engagement. I think the best part is that knowing you're working towards the idea of a commitment that is hopefully as long of a stretch as you can pull it - and forever seems beautiful," the actress, 35, tells Women's Health. "My parents aren't married," she says of mom Goldie Hawn and her longtime love, Kurt Russell. "And one of the reasons why they never got married is because they had been married before and »

Duncan Jones and Rian Johnson interested in directing Preacher episodes for AMC

15 September 2014 10:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As we speak, writing, directing and producing duo Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Superbad, This is the End) are hard at work on an adaptation of Garth Ennis’ 1990s graphic novel Preacher for AMC. Over the weekend, the two got into a discussion about the project over Twitter, and caught the attention of up-and-coming directors Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) and Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper).

Aint It Cool News’ Eric Vespe began the conversation by suggesting that Goldberg and Rogen cast Kurt Russell as the Saint of Killers on the show. Jones then jumped in, apparently a bit out of the loop since he’s been busy directing a little video game movie called Warcraft for Legendary pictures, and asked about the project. Check out their conversation below (courtesy of /Film):

Duncan Jones Is Game To Direct Some Episodes Of AMC's Preacher TV Series

15 September 2014 8:23 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Over the weekend, Ain’t It Cool News‘ Eric Vespe tweeted Seth Rogen with the casting suggestion of Kurt Russell for the Saint Of Killer's role in Rogen and Evan Goldberg's small screen adaptation of the controversial DC Vertigo classic, Preacher. This led to Warcraft director Duncan Jones joining the conversation, and although a lot of the exchanges are clearly banter, it does sound like Jones is genuinely interested in getting involved: @ManMadeMoon @EricVespe @evandgoldberg TV show for AMC. Wanna direct some episodes? (I should note that we haven't finished a pilot script) — Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) September 12, 2014 @Sethrogen @EricVespe @evandgoldberg But in all seriousness... I'd eat my own arm off to do it. — Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) September 12, 2014 Then, after a fan suggested Rian Johnson (Looper) also try his hand at directing an ep or two, this happened: @EricVespe I've got 2 hands. @ThatJoeMeyers @Sethrogen @ManMadeMoon @evandgoldberg — Rian Johnson (@rianjohnson) September »

Richard Linklater Setting Cast for That’S What I’M Talking About; Wyatt Russell, Blake Jenner, and Tyler Hoechlin May Star

12 September 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker Richard Linklater is indeed planning on next directing his “spiritual sequel” to Dazed and Confused, a baseball-themed film called That’s What I’m Talking About.  Linklater has been discussing making the college-set project for years now, and coming off the massive success of Boyhood (and after dropping out of The Incredible Mr. Limpet), it appears that the time has finally come.  The filmmaker previously said the pic was hard to put together because he didn’t want to cast “stars” in the film—much like Dazed and Confused—and indeed, a report has surfaced that offers for three leads have gone out to Wyatt Russell (22 Jump Street), Blake Jenner (Glee), and Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf).  More after the jump. The story of That’s What I’m Talking About takes place in the 1980s and will revolve around freshmen as they navigate through the first year of college »

Red Army Review | Tiff 2014

11 September 2014 6:20 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When it comes to American sports, we love our individual figures: Babe Ruth, Joe Montana, Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky.  It’s part of the individualistic nature of county, and while we’re not against teams, we prefer legends.  There’s an entire movie set around 1980’s “Miracle on Ice”, but with Herb Brooks (Kurt Russell) at the center.  These sports legends reinforce our notions of what we aspire to be. “History is written by the victors”, Churchill said, but sometimes the more interesting stories come from the defeated.  Gabe Polsky’s superb sports documentary Red Army crosses the Atlantic to explore how hockey was viewed in Russia, and how their culture affected their play and their players.  Filled with terrific mini-narratives within its larger context, Red Army is deeply insightful and constantly entertaining. Using celebrated player Viacheslav Fetisov as the backbone of the film but expanding to other figures as well, »

Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight Will Shoot in January

4 September 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The Weinstein Company announced that Quentin Tarantino's upcoming western The Hateful Eight will start shooting in January 2015, and it will be released later that year. The movie is being shot in Super CinemaScope (70mm) and they also revealed that the movie will have the largest 70mm release in over 20 years. 

There was a teaser trailer released in theaters recently, and even though it had no actual footage from the film as it hasn't started shooting yet, it was still enough to get me excited. I love westerns, and this has the makings of a great one. 

The Hateful Eight follows the steadily ratcheting tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route, and traps a pitiless and mistrustful group which includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier, and a female prisoner in a saloon in the middle of nowhere.

No stars have been officially confirmed yet, »

Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight Confirmed For Release Next Year

4 September 2014 3:57 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The Hateful Eight has had a rough start to it's production, with Quentin Tarantino threatening to shelve his return to the Western genre after the first draft of the script was leaked by Gawker last year. Thankfully, Tarantino never went ahead with his threats, and the film heads in front of the camera in January, with Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and Walter Goggins rumoured to be taking part in the tale of eight strangers holed up in cabin during a blizzard in post-Civil War Wyoming. The release date for the movie has been set for Autumn 2015, with Tarantino proclaiming it will be 'the widest 70mm release in over 20 years' with the film being released in the higher resolution 70mm format, with a 35mm and digital releases following shortly after. Any Tarantino movie immediately goes on my must-see list, and the prospect of seeing »

Confirmed: Tarantino's The Hateful Eight shooting in January

3 September 2014 10:37 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight may make it into cinemas by the end of 2015, it seems...

The story on this one so far. Quentin Tarantino penned a script for another western, after he'd clearly enjoyed putting Django Unchained together. That western is called The Hateful Eight, but after the script leaked, Tarantino pulled the project, and said he'd never make it.

Following aborted legalities, the project is now firmly back on though, and it's been announced now that The Weinstein Company has picked up worldwide distribution for the film. It's backing the movie, which is now going to shoot beginning in January, with one eye on a release towards the end of 2015.

It already looks as if Kurt Russell is in the cast for a start, and Tarantino held a live reading of the script, recruiting Samuel L Jackson, Bruce Dern and Michael Madsen amongst others for that event. »

Big Trouble in Little Downton: When Dan Stevens met Kurt Russell

3 September 2014 3:40 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Downton Abbey fans may be a tad surprised by Dan Stevens’ recent choice in roles, which include a gun-toting Kentucky army veteran in the bananas action movie The Guest (out Sept. 17) and a New York drug dealer in the Liam Neeson-starring private eye thriller, A Walk Among the Tombstones (out Sept. 19). But such projects are very much in the wheelhouse of the man who spent three years playing the period drama’s dashing Matthew Crawley, as this writer discovered when he recently met with the actor for a feature in this week’s Entertainment Weekly. “I’m a genre fan, »

Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight' Coming Fall 2015, 'Dragon 3' Bumped to 2017

3 September 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I know, a story about a new Quentin Tarantino movie and the third film in the How to Train Your Dragon franchise doesn't exactly feel right, but both have to do with their respective film's release dates so I think it works. First off, The Weinstein Co. has issued a press release Tarantino's The Hateful Eight will begin shooting in January for a Fall 2015 release and along with that news the release announced it will receive the widest 70mm release in over 20 years". It will be curious to see if those roadshow plans also remain. The ensemble Western centers on bounty hunters returning human plunder to a town called Red Rock in exchange for hefty rewards when they run into a Southerner on the road. The three of them, along with their driver arrive at a haberdashery to take shelter from an oncoming blizzard. The proprietors are nowhere to be found, »

'Hateful Eight' Gets A Start Date, Ain't That Great?

3 September 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It's been a long and winding road all ready for Quentin Tarantino's next film, The Hateful Eight. There was the infamous script leak, then Tarantino's outraged "It's off!" response to said leak, then a star-studded staged reading, then a "It's back on!" announcement from the director, a quick teaser, and now The Weinstein Company has announced a start date for filming.

The post-Civil War set western will go before cameras this January. The film will take place in a snowy Wyoming town, and center around a group of characters left stranded in the town after a blizzard diverts their stage coach. There'll be bounty hunters, prisoners, Confederates, a Cow Puncher, a Hangman, and more- as hostilities within the town all come to a head.

If the cast of the aforementioned reading is any indication, Tarantino has put together quite a talented group. We're talking Bruce Dern, Kurt Russell, Amber Tamblyn, »

Tarantino’s ‘Hateful Eight’ to Start Filming in January for Fall 2015 Release

3 September 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Quentin Tarantino’s original plan was to shoot his western Hateful Eight in the early going of 2015 – and now, after he publicly went back and forth about whether or not he would make the movie at all (following an early script draft leak), the filmmaker is moving ahead on the project as he originally intended.

Hateful Eight already has a poster and teaser trailer that mention a 2015 release, but today the Weinstein Company announced that principal photography on the film will begin in January 2015 – as likely cast member Kurt Russell previously said might happen – in order to make a fall 2015 launch date.

Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight to Begin Shooting in January; Will Receive Widest Release for a 70mm Film in over 20 Years [Updated]

3 September 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I understood when Quentin Tarantino decided to put The Hateful Eight on hold after the script was leaked.  It was his property, it wasn’t ready for public consumption, and it tainted the process.  But I’m overjoyed he decided to pick it back up and that it’s set for release next year.  According to Empire, Tarantino will begin filming in January, which means in all likelihood we’ll know the final cast before the end of 2014.  The full cast has yet to be announced, but Empire confirms Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Walton Goggins, and Samuel L. Jackson are attached; there’s also the possibility Jennifer Lawrence could be on board. Even more exciting is that Tarantino is using his sway to get a 70mm presentation to as wide an audience as possible.  Hit the jump for more. [Update: Ben Fritz at the Wall Street Journal adds that The Hateful Eight will initially be released exclusively in 70mm, followed by a 35mm and digital release in the following weeks.] Executive producer Harvey Weinstein tells Empire that »

'The Hateful Eight' Confirmed for January Shoot & Fall 2015 Release

3 September 2014 7:11 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following rumblings from Kurt Russell that shooting on Quentin Tarantino's new western The Hateful Eight would shoot early next year, and assumptions the film would get an awards season release in 2015, a press release from The Weinstein Company has officially confirmed both of those details. More specifically, the film will star shooting in January to arrive in theaters next fall, though no specific date has been chosen. And as the teaser poster and trailer both indicated, the film will be shown in 70mm and the press release touts that it will be "the widest 70mm release in over 20 years." And that's just plain awesome. Read on! Harvey and Bob Weinstein also released the standard publicity fluff saying, "We are incredibly excited to begin production on The Hateful Eight, as we know this picture will be as innovative, brash and of course fun as all Quentin projects prior.

Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' Confirmed For Fall 2015, Will Have Widest 70mm Release In 20 Years

3 September 2014 6:43 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A press release from The Weinstein Company has reached inboxes, bringing rock solid confirmation of some good news: the studio will be releasing "The Hateful Eight," the latest film from Quentin Tarantino, the filmmaker's ninth, in a little over a year. Having come close to dropping the project when the script leaked at the start of this year, Tarantino's now preparing for a January shoot for the project, and the press release confirms the news from the recent teaser trailer that the film will be released in the fall of 2015. Most intriguingly, the film, which Tarantino has long-touted would be filmed in large format, will apparently receive 'the widest 70mm release in over 20 years' (we think the last to get a similar roll-out was Ron Howard's "Far & Away"). For anyone who loves film, that can only be a good thing. With a January start date, we'll likely hear confirmation »
