Casey Affleck teams with Alfonso Cuaron for horror TV drama

1 hour ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Deadline, Anonymous Content is shopping around a new TV drama package which has Oscar-winning filmmaker Alfonso Cuaron attached to write and direct, with Academy Award-winning actor Casey Affleck on board to star.

Although details are being kept under wraps, the site reports that the project is a horror, and tracks the origins of a cult. Both Cuaron and Affleck are set to executive produce, and there is said to be interest from multiple cable and streaming outlets.

The as-yet-untitled series would mark the first TV series role for Manchester By the Sea star Affleck, whose upcoming feature film projects include Old Man and the Gun and Light of My Life, the latter of which he also writes and directs. Cuaron meanwhile will release his next film Roma in 2018. »

‘Liberation Day’ Review: A Slovenian Rock Band Visits Pyongyang in this Utterly Bizarre Look at Life in North Korea

17 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Only one foreign rock band has ever performed in North Korea. Any guesses? Here’s a hint: Instead of thinking about the musicians who Kim Jong-un would invite to his tetchy hermit kingdom, try thinking about the musicians who might actually take him up on the offer. U2? No. Kid Rock? It’s a toss-up. The Slovenian art band Laibach, who emerged from the ashes of communist Yugoslavia and like to parody fascist regimes by adopting all of their favorite party tricks (sometimes with such a straight face that they’re accused of being Nazis themselves)? Absolutely.

And so, in August 2015, the current members of the Laibach collective flew to Pyongyang International Airport and prepared to play a concert in honor of the 70th anniversary of Korea’s liberation from Japanese rule. Arranged by director Morten Traavik, a Fincher-like force of nature who’d orchestrated a number of trips to Pyongyang in the past, »

Casey Affleck To Star In Alfonso Cuarón’s Horror TV Series

18 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There was probably a better time for this to be announced, and it’s likely the folks behind this project preferred to wait, but it’s representative of how Hollywood — even in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein — is slow to change.

Last year’s Best Actor Oscar winner Casey Affleck — who was involved in two sexual harassment suits that were later settled, and does not have a fan in Brie Larson — is attached to a brewing TV project from Alfonso Cuaron.

Lena Headey Accuses Harvey Weinstein of Sexual Harassment: ‘I Felt Completely Powerless’

17 October 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Lena Headey has accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment in a series of four tweets posted to her official Twitter page that detail an encounter with the former head of The Weinstein Company that left the “Game of Thrones” star in tears. Headey first met Weinstein at the Venice Film Festival where she was promoting Terry Gilliam’s “The Brothers Grimm.” Miramax was co-distributor of the movie that also starred Matt Damon and Heath Ledger.

“At one point Harvey asked me to take a walk down to the water, I walked down with him and he stopped and made some suggestive comment, a gesture, I just laughed it off, I was genuinely shocked,” Headey writes. “I remember thinking, ‘It’s got to be a joke.’ I said something like, ‘Oh come on mate?! It’d be like kissing my dad! Let’s go get a drink, get back to the others. »

The Producers Guild of America Has Begun Termination Proceedings Against Harvey Weinstein

16 October 2017 12:46 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Following his expulsion from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences October 14, Harvey Weinstein’s membership in the Producers Guild of America may soon be revoked as well. The PGA’s National Board of Directors and Officers met this morning, calling sexual harassment a “systemic and pervasive problem requiring immediate industry-wide action” and unanimously voting to begin termination proceedings against him. Their final decision comes early next month.

In the Aftermath of Harvey Weinstein, Can We Separate the Art from the Artist? — IndieWire Critics Survey

16 October 2017 10:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In the aftermath of the Harvey Weinstein story and all that it involves — as people reconsider their relationship to the Miramax films of the ’90s (or don’t) and brace for a new Woody Allen movie, etc. —  we return to an age-old question that could always stand to be asked anew: How should the backstory of a film and / or its makers impact the way we receive it?

When horrifying accusations like the ones waged against Harvey Weinstein come to light, it’s very easy to scream for a boycott and move on (and, as we often see in cases like these, »

16 October 2017 5:56 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

John Oliver updated his viewers on the latest in the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal on Last Week Tonight, where the host discussed how Hollywood's blind eye toward the mega-producer's behavior finally ended this week.

In the week since the Weinstein exposés were published in the New York Times and New Yorker, more accounts of the producer's actions have emerged, including one story by model Angie Everhart.

As Everhart told TMZ, she woke up aboard a yacht outside a European film festival to find Weinstein masturbating in front of her. »

John Oliver Calls the Academy Hypocrites for Expelling Harvey Weinstein But Giving Casey Affleck an Oscar

16 October 2017 5:45 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

John Oliver was the first late night host to attack Harvey Weinstein over his sexual harassment allegations during his October 8 broadcast, and one week later the late night host again took some time during his broadcast to comment on the escalating scandal. Oliver’s Sunday night episode aired just a day after The Academy made its decision to expel Weinstein as one of its members, but Oliver wasn’t too happy about The Academy’s reasoning for doing so.

In an official statement, The Academy explained why it was removing Weinstein: “We do so not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues but also to send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over.”

Tommy Lee Jones joins Casey Affleck in Stoner

15 October 2017 2:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month it was announced that Casey Affleck (Manchester By the Sea) is set to lead the cast of Joe Wright’s (Atonement) new film Stoner, based upon the acclaimed 1965 novel from John Williams, and now THR is reporting that Tommy Lee Jones (No Country for Old Men) has also signed on to the project.

The film will see Affleck as William Stoner, “a dirt-poor farmer turned academic who emerges as an unlikely existential hero while making his way through the first half of the 20th century.” As yet, there’s no word as to who Jones will be playing.

Jones is currently shooting James Gray’s sci-fi Ad Astra with Brad Pitt, and has the Iraq war drama Shock and Awe and the action comedy Just Getting Started incoming. Wright’s next film Darkest Hour, starring Gary Oldman as British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, is set to open in the U. »

11 October 2017 9:53 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The news of Harvey Weinstein's sexual predatory acts over the last decade have started to take on some collateral damage, and Ben Affleck may have just become next in line. Affleck has been accused of groping former One Tree Hill actress Hilarie Burton after publicly condemning Weinstein's actions. Now actress Rose McGowan has insinuated that Affleck may have known of the Hollywood mogul's actions for years. The allegations came just hours after Ben Affleck released his statement about Weinstein, saying that he was "saddened and angry" at Weinstein and his actions.

Ben Affleck is condemning Harvey Weinstein -- who helped make him an Oscar winner -- calling his actions "completely unacceptable."  Affleck says reading the allegations against Weinstein made him sick, especially because they'd worked together so closely on "Good Will Hunting" -- the 1997 Miramax release that earned Ben his first Oscar. Rose McGowan seemed to be calling out Ben and his brother Casey on Monday with a vague tweet ... suggesting they've known about Weinstein's behavior, »
