Munich Film Festival to Pay Tribute to Alexander Payne with Retrospective

11 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — The Munich Film Festival is to pay tribute to Alexander Payne with a complete retrospective of his movies.

Payne’s last visit to the event was in 1997 when he won the High Hopes Award for “Citizen Ruth,” the predecessor of the festival’s CineVision Award. The film starred Laura Dern as a white trash antihero who becomes a cause celebre when she gets pregnant with her fifth child.

Among the movies to play in Munich this year are “Election,” which was the international breakout role for Reese Witherspoon, “About Schmidt,” starring Jack Nicholson, “Sideways,” which stars Paul Giamatti, “The Descendants,” starring George Clooney, and “Nebraska,” with Bruce Dern toplining.

The Munich retrospective will show all Payne’s shorts, features and TV films. On June 26, there will be a gala held in his honor, and the director will also speak about his life and movies at Filmmakers Live in the Gasteig Black Box. »

Reese Witherspoon will play Tinker Bell in Disney's new live-action movie Tink

22 May 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In what may be one of Disney's best-matched castings to date, Reese Witherspoon is to play Tinker Bell in a new film.

Tink, which will focus on the story of Peter Pan's fairy companion, is the latest classic from the animation studio to be given the live-action treatment.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Witherspoon will also produce the feature alongside Bruna Papandrea, her partner at production banner Pacific Standard.

Finding Dory writer Victoria Strouse is currently penning the script, but as yet there is no director attached to the project.

The movie is thought to be following in the footsteps of Disney's Sleeping Beauty spin-off Maleficent in that it will portray the untold story of the lead character.

The studio is currently producing a live-action Beauty and the Beast (starring Emma Watson) and is also developing similar adaptations of classics Dumbo, Pinocchio and Winnie the Pooh.

Watch Best of 'Red Nose Day': Anna Kendrick as Indiana Jones, 'Game of Thrones' Musical

22 May 2015 6:18 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Last night, NBC aired a live special to raise money for Red Nose Day to help children around the world. Pretty much every celebrity you can think of was part of the show -- since "Do You Want to Help Save Children?" is a strong pitch. You can head to NBC's site to see the full episode and learn how you can get involved with donations, but here are five video highlights:

"Indiana Jones With Anna Kendrick"

As this video's intro states, "After the excitement surrounding the all-female 'Ghostbusters' reboot, Hollywood is now remaking hundreds of classic films with female leads." Cue Anna Kendrick in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade." We see her in the pivotal scene where she has to choose the right grail cup ... and maybe choose a few more to take home and decorate her house.

Reese Witherspoon to Play Tinker Bell in Live-Action Disney Flick

22 May 2015 3:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Disney's live-action trend continues with the announcement of its newest take on a classic character: Reese Witherspoon is set to play Tinker Bell in an origin story flick.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that the Oscar-winning actress has been tapped to headline "Tink," which will delve into the backstory of the "Peter Pan" character. Though there are no plot details yet, THR says that the movie "will play with the idea and the timeline of the well-known Peter Pan narrative." And like 2014 hit "Maleficent," "Tink" aims to tell "'the story you don't know,' and will offer a new perspective on the character," per THR.

Witherspoon certainly has the petite, pixie-ish looks to pull of the character, and she's been splitting her time pretty evenly these days between comedy and drama projects. Depending on which director she takes Tinker Bell, the flick could wind up being some combination of those two genres. »

Reese Witherspoon to play Tinkerbell in live-action Disney remake

22 May 2015 1:03 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Reese Witherspoon will play Tinkerbell in Disney's live-action remake of the film. The 39-year-old actress will star as the little fairy - made famous in 'Peter Pan' - in 'Tink', and will be replacing Elizabeth Banks, who has been attached to the film since 2010, as the producer as well, alongside Victoria Strouse - co-writer of Pixar's upcoming 'Finding Dory' - writing the script. According to the Hollywood Reporter, this latest take on Tinkerbell will ''play with the idea and timeline of the well-known Peter Pan narrative,'' and will take the angle of telling ''the story you don't know'', just like 'Maleficent' did with Angelina Jolie. However, 'Tink' is being developed with a more modest mid-range budget as opposed to 'Maleficent''s $180 million and 'Cinderella''s $95 million. Since Elizabeth announced she was playing Tinkerbell with a ''mischievous nature'' in 2010, Disney has released 'Maleficent', »

Reese Witherspoon Away With The Fairies In ‘Tink’

21 May 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Disney have been having a field day of late reworking their animated back catalogue into live action blockbusters. Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella has been to the ball and left with wads of cash, and with Tim Burton announced as helmer for the transfer of Dumbo the House Of Mouse shows no signs of slowing down. Next to get the green light is a character who could well be mistaken for a green light herself – Tinker Bell!

The perpetually high-wattage Reese Witherspoon is to star in and produce Tink, a vehicle for Peter Pan’s tiny winged companion. Written by Victoria Strouse, it’s reportedly a period piece. J.M. Barrie’s source material evolved into a play and a novel in the early twentieth century.

Reese Witherspoon to play live action Tinkerbell

21 May 2015 10:56 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tink is to star and be produced by Reese Witherspoon, with Finding Dory's co-writer penning the script.

In the past year or two, a succession of projects have been revealed by Disney, that aim to turn some of its animated classics into live action features. Tink, a movie outing for the character Tinkerbell, actually predates that trend, with this particular project having been in development since 2010.

Back then, Elizabeth Banks was attached to play the lead role, but it seemed that Tink gradually fizzled out. Until now at least.

For whilst Elizabeth Banks no longer seems to be involved, Reese Witherspoon very much is. She's signed on to star in and produce Tink, which is also getting a new screenplay from Victoria Strouse. Strouse has co-written the upcoming Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory.

The pitch here is that we're getting the Tinkerbell story we apparently didn't know, and it's »

‘Red Nose Day': Live Fundraiser Blends Star Pitches, Comedy Performances

21 May 2015 9:41 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Do something funny for money” was the slogan of NBC’s inaugural “Red Nose Day” telecast, a live three-hour show that helped raise more than $21 million to aid children living in poverty in the U.S. and abroad.

The telecast that originated Thursday from New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom went off with only a few minor hitches that were probably not visible to the viewing audience at home.

Seth Meyers, David Duchovny and Jane Krakowski each hosted an hour of the program that blended pitches from stars such as Julianne Moore, Olivia Wilde and Gwenyth Paltrow with taped comedy segments produced by Funny or Die and in-studio bits from “Saturday Night Live’s” Colin Jost, Michael Che and Jay Pharaoh, as well as Billy Eichner and Josh Groban.

In between the entertainment, short films featuring celebrity appeals on behalf of specific causes struck a serious note. Jack Black traveled »

Reese Witherspoon is attached to tell a live-action version of Tinker Bell's story, The Hollywood Reporter writes. The project is in development, but, yes, in one of the more solid cartoon-to-live-action casting moves in recent memory, Witherspoon would play the titular fairy.

Finding Dory screenwriter Victoria Strouse is penning the screenplay, which will reportedly tell us the story we don't know (think Angelina Jolie's Maleficent). Drama.
