The film, which will begin production later this year, follows “Tom and Kimberly (Heard), two star-crossed lovers escaping the dark criminal underbelly of the European modeling industry. Tom, an American visiting Paris for his best friend’s bachelor party, falls for the beautiful, mysterious Kimberly. When Tom learns a surprising truth about her, his trip takes a lethal turn; the two embark on a riveting journey through Paris streets to start a new life together.”
Director Grivois is a longtime collaborator of Jacques Audiard, and directed the dream sequences in A Prophet and the opening sequence and titles of Rust and Bone before making his feature debut with Through the Air.

Young will be joining the previously announced cast of Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Billy Bob Thornton, Charlie Hunnam, and Giovanni Ribisi.
The story follows a young man who awakens on an airplane to Chicago with no recollection of his injuries or of how he ended up on the plane. He then heads to a rehab and begins his journey to sobriety. Young will play Lilly, a crack and heroin addict who falls in love with the man.
Both Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Sam Taylor-Johnson adapted the script from James Frey’s 2003 book of the same name. Though the novel was promoted as a memoir, it was later discovered that many of the events described in the book never happened.
The film is the first feature of Brad Weston’s Makeready company to go into production. Makeready’s Pam Abdy
The festival saluted the two actors for their work in “Get Out” and “Call Me by Your Name,” respectively, plus Mary J. Blige (“Mudbound”), Hong Chau (“Downsizing”), John Boyega (“Detroit”) and Kumail Nanjiani (“The Big Sick”).
Each actor was brought out for a one-on-one conversation, with Blige talking about how amazing it was to see the many women behind the cameras on “Mudbound,” including Oscar-nominated d.p. Rachel Morrison. Boyega called “Detroit” the biggest movie he’s done, despite the “Star Wars” films, because “Detroit” represents “longevity” for his career. (And no, he doesn’t know the name of “Star Wars” No. 9 yet.)
In paring down the list, we had to answer the question: “Just what is a football movie?” We didn’t include “The Blind Side,” for example, because though its central character plays football, the film is primarily about many other things. And while Act 3 of Robert Altman‘s “M*A*S*H” is made up of what is arguably the
McDormand is also part of an elite group of actors who have won the “Triple Crown of Acting.” That distinction is given to actors who have won all three of the major acting awards given: the Oscar, Emmy and Tony. McDormand won her Emmy for the HBO miniseries “Olive Kitteridge” in 2015. She was also nominated for another Emmy for her supporting role in the TV movie “Hidden in America” in 1997.
Loosely based on Frey’s life (and published as a memoir rather than a novel, leading to much controversy), A Million Little Pieces tells of his rehabilitation from drug and alcohol abuse. Taylor-Johnson is set to portray the protagonist, with Thornton as Leonard, his guardian angel at a rehab facility, with Juri as the female lead. Giovanni Ribisi (Avatar) is also on board.
Filming on A Million Pieces is set to get underway this coming week, and is being financed by Makeready, a new independent
Billy Bob Thornton, Carla Juri, and Charlie Hunnam have joined Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Giovanni Ribisi in the detox drama “A Million Little Pieces.”
Sam Taylor-Johnson is directing for Brad Weston’s Makeready. Makeready’s Pam Abdy is producing with the Picture Company partners Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman.
Sam Taylor-Johnson and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who are married, adapted the script from James Frey’s 2003 book “A Million Little Pieces.” Though the novel was promoted as a memoir, it was later discovered that many of the events described in the book never happened.
Makeready will fully finance the film. Sierra/Affinity is handling international sales and plans to take the project to Berlin.
Thornton will play the Leonard role. He is repped by Wme and Media Talent Group; Juri by [link
Sam Taylor-Johnson, who directed 2015’s Fifty Shades of Grey, is behind the camera for the adaptation of the James Frey best-seller that is being financed by Brad Weston’s Makeready Films.
Weston is producing along with The Picture Company partners Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman.
The book was for years set up at Warner Bros., but the Taylor-Johnson husband-and-wife team extricated it. Million Little Pieces became controversial after Frey was exposed for inventing or embellishing...
The HBO adaptation led the TV pack by converting on four of its six total nominations, capped by a final win for Best TV-Movie (which it qualified for since at the time of production there was no intent for a Season 2).
Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale followed with two wins apiece.

Big Little Lies — Winner
The 75th Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Seth Meyers, airs this Sunday on NBC, and unlike the Emmys, which are easier to predict when it comes to the winners, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association likes to be unpredictable with who they mint the year's best on the small screen.
Will Amazon's critically-acclaimed new dramedy, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, sweep the comedy series and comedy actress categories? Will Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale bring home the top drama prize? Does anyone stand a chance in pulling an upset over Big Little Lies? It's anyone's guess when it comes to the Globes!
With just three days to go before the big day, Et predicts who will win and who should win the TV categories at the Globes.

While the nominations can seem mercurial, the long view shows that the HFPA generally reflects more middle-brow Hollywood tastes without too much foreign flavor. And, peering over our shoulders to last year, they ushered “Moonlight” and “La La Land” — best picture drama and best picture — musical or comedy, respectively — off to the Oscars for the biggest finish line fumble in Academy history. One can say that the swamis at the HFPA virtually anticipated the climactic Academy Awards snafu.
The biggest shocker this year on the film side is that the HFPA didn’t catch the industry’s wave of female empowerment and nominate a single woman for director honors, which remained
It goes without saying that low brow comedy is nothing new. Foul mouthed tirades, sex jokes and toilet humour. Occasionally these comedies might play with stereotypes relating to race, gender or sexuality. Of course attitudes have changed and. largely, comedies these days have grown up with society. This is not to say that low brow comedy can’t be funny but the trouble arises when you set your stall out as such, but forget some key things (like engaging characters, funny lines) and this is what we’re increasingly finding in all too many modern comedies.
You can have filth. You can have unlikeable leads, complete bastards. You can do something like It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Everything about the show is pushing to a point but not overstepping and mixing
So which movie has the absolute worst Christmas sequel? Well, we can scratch Friday After Next off the list, because the original was never a Christmas movie to begin with. But at the top of the list surely has to be A Christmas Story 2. While the original is so popular that it plays for 24 hours straight on Christmas day, the only place you're likely to see the sequel is playing on a loop in Hell. Sure, it has some fans, but

Zwigoff worked with Miramax on the Billy Bob Thornton-starring Christmas comedy “Bad Santa,” which was produced by Bob Weinstein under the Miramax-owned Dimension Films. The director said in a tweet that he was interested in casting Sorvino for an unspecified role in the comedy, but that every time he brought up her name to Bob and Harvey Weinstein they would immediately hang up on him. Zwigoff alleges this happened numerous
