Paramount Players Lands First Project: ‘Vacation Guide to the Solar System’

17 August 2017 11:31 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Newly minted Paramount Players has landed its first project, winning a bidding war for the movie rights to the book “Vacation Guide to the Solar System.”

Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley, who most recently scripted “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” will produce and adapt the book written by Olivia Koski, head of operations for Guerilla Science, and Jana Grcevich, an astronomer who has presented at the Hayden Planetarium.

The project is inspired by Koski and Grcevich’s work with Guerilla Science on the Intergalactic Travel Bureau, a retro futuristic pop-up travel agency that plans vacations to space for the public.

Justin Theroux Says He Skipped an Audition for 'Friends': 'I Slept in That Day'

17 August 2017 9:42 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Justin Theroux may have met Jennifer Aniston a whole lot sooner in life.

The Leftovers star is featured in the latest issue of Mr. Porter magazine, and reveals that early on in his career, he decided to skip an audition in New York for a role on Friends, his now-wife's beloved '90s sitcom. "No, I didn’t bother,” he recalls. “I slept in that day. I wouldn’t have been prepared for [the fame].”

Theroux also opens up about Aniston's sense of humor, admitting that his wife of two years isn't afraid to shut down his jokes. "When it’s not funny, she calls me out," he notes. "She says, ‘That’s not funny.'"

Netflix releases ominous teaser promo for Ozark starring Jason Bateman

16 August 2017 2:36 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

I've heard mixed things about Ozark, the dark crime drama starring Jason Bateman. Some said it was good, gripping stuff, others said it was just a watered-down - though still solid - Breaking Bad rip-off, others said it was hot garbage. I haven't had a chance to check it out myself yet, but I might after that eerie and cryptic teaser. What do those images mean (besides of course that "N" in the top left... Read More »

Ozark Renewed For Season 2

16 August 2017 12:40 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It was only a week or so ago that I finished watching Season 1 of Ozark on Netflix, it was something I stumbled upon while browsing the streaming service one evening and gave it a shot. I am so glad I did and then binge watched all 10 episodes within a week. (That’s binging for me)

As soon as I had finished I wanted to know about Season 2, when is it due to hit and are they even making it, and then I found out that Season 1 had only just been released in July. It could take ages for them to decide on a Season 2, so I spread the word to everyone I could, more people watching means more chance of getting another season we assume, although Netflix never release their viewer numbers for shows.

Netflix’s Ozark Has Been Renewed For A Second Season

15 August 2017 10:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ozark

One of the best shows screening online at the moment is the impressive Netflix series Ozark, and the super-streamer has just renewed it for a second season.

Jason Bateman leads the cast of Ozark, which revolves around his character Marty Byrde, a financial planner who relocates his family from Chicago to a summer resort community in the Ozarks. With wife Wendy (Laura Linney) and their two kids in tow, Marty is on the move after a money-laundering scheme goes wrong, forcing him to pay off a substantial debt to a Mexican drug lord in order to keep his family safe. While the Byrde’s fate hangs in the balance, the dire circumstances force the fractured family to reconnect.

Created by Bill Dubuque (The Accountant, The Headhunter’s Calling, The Judge), Ozark will return in 2018 for ten new episodes.

Jason Bateman and Laura Linney's Ozark Is Coming Back For Season 2

15 August 2017 3:15 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Hopefully your life could use a whole lot more Jason Bateman and Laura Linney, because their twisted Netflix drama, Ozark, has been renewed for a 10-episode second season. As fans of the slow-burning first season are aware, Bateman and Linney star as Marty and Wendy Byrde, who abruptly relocate their family from the quiet suburbs of Chicago to a Summer resort community in Missouri's Ozarks after a money-laundering situation goes south. The show premiered to middling reviews, but fared much better than Netflix's other dramatic offering, Gypsy, which recently got the ax. An official date for when Ozark will come back for season two has yet to be unveiled, but given season one's premiere in July, it's safe to assume the next batch of episodes will come around the same time in 2018. Plot details are also scarce at this point, but Bateman did reveal a few tidbits about where Marty »

Why Creators Think Netflix Is The Future

15 August 2017 2:35 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Hollywood is a tough and uncompromising place to work, often described as a "meat grinder" by those working in the trenches. Many, many stories have been written about the challenges of breaking into the industry, establishing a career, and chasing that next gig -- a whole cottage industry of books and websites exists for these very reasons. A frequently posed question by many aspiring creatives: does it really have to be this way? With so much money on the line for every movie and TV show, the stress and pressure is understandable... if only there was another way.

In recent years Netflix has established itself as an anti-Hollywood. We've read and heard about top writers, directors, and actors moving to Netflix in droves. In just the last week the Coen Brothers, David Letterman, and Shonda Rhimes signed deals with the Los Altos, California company. They join Netflix alums like Jason Bateman, »
