Thanks to the successful film adaptations of The Hunger Games franchise and The Fault In Our Stars, 2014 could be dubbed the year of the Ya. The genre of books took over the box office with other big screen takes on the first of the Divergent series, The Giver, If I Stay, and The Maze Runner.
While the primary focus on these films was the young stars that embodied the angst-ridden teens of the books, every one of these movies was supported by an award-winning adult actor. Even Meryl Streep got into the Ya game, adding pedigree to The Giver, which starred budding star Brenton Thwaites.
But how did Streep compare to Julianne Moore, who stepped into the role of President Coin in the third Hunger Games film, or to Kate Winslet, who portrayed the villain in the first installment of Divergent? We ranked all of the 2014 film performances based on who used their Oscar prowess to maximum »
According to Variety, Kate Winslet is in negotiations to take on the lead female role in Universal Picture’s Steve Jobs biopic. She will join Michael Fassbender, who is set to play Jobs, and Seth Rogen, who is on board to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. Jeff Daniels is also looking to join the project as former Apple President John Scully.
Danny Boyle is directing the film from a script written by Aaron Sorkin. The movie was originally set up at Sony Pictures, but they just couldn’t seem to get it together, so they kind of just gave up on it and let Universal Pictures take it.
There’s no word on who Winslet will play in the movie, but it’s probably the same role that Natalie Portman was up for before she dropped out. If that’s the case, Winslet could be playing Jobs’ daughter, but that’s not confirmed. »

After sputtering its way through development hell, the Aaron Sorkin-penned film, Jobs, continues to show signs of forward momentum. Despite directors and actors like David Fincher and Christian Bale walking away from it, the film lives. Even Sony dropping the film from its slate didn't kill this thing. Now with a new lease on life over at Universal pictures, with Danny Boyle at the helm, and with Michael Fassbender and Seth Rogen set to star in it, comes news of the film potentially finding its female lead. Last month, it was Natalie Portman who was said to be in talks for the part, but those talks fizzled.
According to Variety, the new actress that's being pursued is Kate Winslet. This would be another high-profile "get" for the production, as Winslet has been nominated for 6 Academy Awards- with a win for Best Actress for her work in The Reader. It's »

Although Reese Witherspoon's face is on all the posters, the real stars of "The Good Lie" are the actors who portray young survivors of the brutal civil war in Sudan. Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany, and Emmanuel Jal star as the Sudanese "Lost Boys" who start a new life in Kansas City, Mo. Philippe Falardeau ("Monsieur Lazhar") directed the movie, based on a script by Margaret Nagle ("Boardwalk Empire").
Critics loved this crowd-pleasing film based on a true story about two disparate groups who come together in solidarity during Margaret Thatcher's term as Pm. Lgbt activists are trying to raise money to support the families of striking miners, but they're not having any success. Eventually, the group, »

Winslet will take the female lead, which was previously expected to go to Natalie Portman.
Jeff Daniels is also reported to be in talks for the role of former Apple president John Scully.
Aaron Sorkin is writing the script.
That’s not just any simple garden, we’re talking about the grand gardens of Versailles for King Louis Xiv in the upcoming period piece A Little Chaos. In A Little Chaos Kate Winslet is Madame Sabine De Barra, a woman who’s assigned to design the landscape of the still-to-be-completed palace of Versailles during the rule of […]
Although upon hearing the title, I didn’t expect A Little Chaos to be harking back to the Merchant Ivory genre with Alan Rickman directing but interestingly, it feels somewhat refreshing in days of constant big-screen explosions and warring superheroes. It’s also important not to forget of the differing audiences across the board especially after the low-key success of Mr Turner and My Old Lady.
This isn’t to say the style doesn’t cover all audiences, especially with a good premise and great cast that includes Kate Winslet, Matthias Schoenaerts, Alan Rickman and more. Focusing around the life of Madame Sabine De Barra (Kate Winslet), she’s an unlikely candidate for a landscape architect of the still?to-be-completed Palace of Versailles. She has little time for the classical, ordered designs of the man who hires her, the famous architect Le Nôtre (Matthias Schoenaerts). However, as she works, she »

Oscar winning actress Kate Winslet is said to be the frontrunner for the female lead in the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, according to Variety. Originally Natalie Portman had been approached for the role but negotiations have fallen through.
The film is based on the Walter Isaacson-penned biography about the apple founder Steve Jobs. The film has had some issues over the past few weeks with both Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale dropping out, as well as original director David Fincher leaving the project. Sony was originally funding before letting it go, allowing Universal to pick up the project.
The film currently has no official release date, and is being directed by Danny Boyle with a script from Aaron Sorkin. Kate Winslet is set to join a cast that includes Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs with Seth Rogan as Steve Wozniak and Jeff Daniels as John Scully.

And now, an update on the Aaron Sorkin/Danny Boyle Steve Jobs film that doesn’t come from a leaked e-mail. After Jessica Chastain and Natalie Portman passed on a role, it seems Oscar winner Kate Winslet is the latest actress up for the female lead in the film. She’d star opposite Michael Fassbender as Jobs, Seth […]

It seems every piece of news touches upon Sony this week, and their former Steve Jobs biopic, now housed at Universal, continues to add to what is turning into a stellar cast for the Danny Boyle-directed, Aaron Sorkin-penned walk and talk, and talk and talk and talk. Variety reports that Kate Winslet is in negotiations to join Michael Fassbender (as Jobs) and Seth Rogen (as Steve Wozniak) in "Jobs." Other actors in play include Jeff Daniels circling the part of Apple president John Scully, with Michael Stuhlbarg signing up for the role of computer scientist Andy Hertzfeld, according to Deadline. As for Winslet? There's no word on what character she might play. Also on deck for the actress is the recently wrapped "The Dressmaker." Screen Daily has the first look (up top) at the comedy about "a glamorous woman with a penchant for haute couture who returns to »

Two weeks after actress Natalie Portman passed on the female lead in Universal's Steve Jobs biopic, the studio is in talks with Kate Winslet for the role. If a deal is finalized, she will star alongside Michael Fassbender and Seth Rogen, who are playing Apple co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. We also reported earlier this month that Jeff Daniels is circling the role of Apple CEO John Sculley, although a formal offer isn't in place yet.
The plot is based on Walter Isaacson's memoir, which is adapted by Aaron Sorkin. The story will be set backstage at the launch of three major Apple products, the Mac computer, Apple Next and the original iPod. No details about the female lead have been revealed, but Aaron Sorkin said last month that Steve Jobs' daughter Lisa is the "heroine" of the movie, so it's possible that Kate Winslet may be playing her. »

As Sony’s strife with the cyber-hack continues, one of their projects recently that shuffled to another studio is charging forward. After the studio bailed on their Steve Jobs biopic, Universal swooped in to pick up the pieces. With a script from Aaron Sorkin and Danny Boyle in the director’s chair, it’s hard to believe this project ever had difficulty locking down its cast during its time with Sony… but Universal aren’t messing around. Per Variety, Oscar-winner Kate Winslet is now in the running for the female lead.
Recent talk had linked Natalie Portman to the role, but due to unknown circumstances, her deal never went through. Now that Winslet is in talks with the studio though, the idea of cameras rolling in the near future doesn’t seem impossible. Should she nail down a deal, the British actress will be starring alongside Michael Fassbender, who nabbed »

While Sony Pictures is dealing with the fallout from the North Korean cyber-attack, a former Sony project is barreling forward. Universal Pictures recently picked up the Aaron Sorkin-scripted Steve Jobs biopic from Sony, and while the film had trouble firming up its cast, it appears that things are finally coming together. Michael Fassbender is set to play the Apple innovator, Seth Rogen is onboard as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, and Danny Boyle is firmly in the director’s chair. Now, after Natalie Portman previously flirted with the role, it appears that Kate Winslet is now in line to join the project as the female lead. More after the jump. Per Variety, Kate Winslet is in early negotiations to play the female lead in Jobs. Details regarding the role are unclear at this time, but the movie is structured like a play as it’s comprised of only three major »

The pic is based on the Walter Isaacson biography and was originally set up at Sony before Universal picked it up out of turnaround when Sony let it go.
Jeff Daniels is also circling the role of former Apple president John Scully, though no offer is in place.
Given the pedigree of the pic, it’s no surprise Winslet was drawn to the role. She’s already garnered six Oscar nominations and one win for best actress for her performance in “The Reader.”
She can be seen next reprising her role as Jeanine »

Society is heading to war in Insurgent (in theaters March 20)—which means we get to see Shailene Woodley's Tris kick some serious ass. Adapted from the popular Veronica Roth trilogy, Divergent's sequel will see Tris and Four (Theo James) continuing to lead the resistance against the corrupt government while evil mastermind Jeanine (Kate Winslet) tries to wipe out Tris and her kind.
