Paul Thomas Anderson To Write And Possibly Direct Warner Bros' ‘Pinocchio’ For Robert Downey Jr.

1 July 2015 10:53 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For his past couple of films, Paul Thomas Anderson has very much followed his own idiosyncratic path, even if the box office rewards or awards season success didn't follow. Together with Joaquin Phoenix, he explored the nature of man versus animal in "The Master" and the blissed out vibes of a changing era in "Inherent Vice." So what's PTA's next move? Making a live action kids' movie, of course. Wait… what? THR reports that the director is taking a page from fellow auteurs like Noah Baumbach ("Madagascar 3"), Alex Ross Perry ("Winnie The Pooh") and David Lowery ("Pete's Dragon") and is set to convert a 19th century Italian folk tale turned 20th century animated classic into a fresh new blockbuster for the 21st century. PTA will be rewriting the long developing "Pinocchio" for his pal Robert Downey Jr. with an eye to direct, with the movie set up over at Warner Bros. »

What's New on TV, Netflix, Digital, and DVD/Blu-ray This Week: June 29 - July 5

29 June 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"Get Hard"

Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart team up in this comedy about a rich hedge-fund manager who is sentenced to San Quentin; desperate for tips on how to survive prison, he looks for help from a black businessman, assuming he'll know what to do. That's not racist at all! As it turns out, Hart's businessman has never even had a parking ticket, so it's the blind leading the blind. The Blu-ray has tons of extras, including an unrated cut of the film, a gag reel, deleted scenes, and these featurettes: "Just Put Your Lips Together and Blow," "Get Hard Line-o-Ramas," "The Kevin Hart Workout," "Face Off with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart," "-Ferrell Fighting," "A Date with John Mayer, »

Edinburgh Film Review: ‘Len and Company’

26 June 2015 5:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll are kept mostly offscreen in “Len and Company,” a semi-comic portrait of a music-biz burnout that concerns itself less with glittery debauchery than its mopey aftermath. In the prickly, unlovable role of a hermetic super-producer unnerved by a surprise visit from his college-age son, Rhys Ifans finds an unusually demanding showcase for his frayed, feckless screen persona. As a dysfunctional family drama, however, commercials director Tim Godsall’s debut feature takes far fewer risks, while offering a less-than-convincing glimpse into the modern-day pop factory. Unspooling at Edinburgh — though seemingly made with a view to Sundance — this modest diversion shares its cranky protagonist’s hostility to commercial appeal, despite a baffling third-act lunge into thriller territory.

“Just a rich old bastard with loads of f—ing T-shirts,” is how the eponymous Len (Ifans) describes himself to a classroom of bewildered schoolchildren at a disastrously ill-advised »

Len and Company review – Rhys Ifans rocks out in surprisingly nuanced drama

25 June 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Ifans plays a veteran musician holed up in an isolated rural house whose life is complicated when his teenage son and a girl singer disturb his peace

Rhys Ifans is all over the Edinburgh film festival like a rash: this is the third new film, after Under Milk Wood and The Marriage of Reason and Squalor, featuring the now decidedly grizzled actor who – strange as it may seem – appears to embody some kind of British rock’n’roll chic as far as certain film-makers are concerned.

Canadian-born commercials director Tim Godsall is the latest to deploy Ifans’ unique charms, and the actor pretty much picks up where he left off in Noah Baumbach’s Greenberg as a midatlantic idea of an aging Britrocker. Here, though, he is a lot more successful than the leather-jacketed loser in Baumbach’s film: the idea here is that he is some sort of veteran »

She's Funny That Way: Peter Bogdanovich's not-so funny rom-com

24 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Peter Bogdanovich; Screenwriters: Peter Bogdanovich, Louise Stratten; Starring: Imogen Poots, Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston, Rhys Ifans, Kathryn Hahn, Will Forte; Running time: 92 mins; Certificate: 12A

With his first feature in almost 15 years, director Peter Bogdanovich aims for crowd-pleasing comedy without actually considering his audience. She's Funny That Way harks back to the screwball comedies of the '30s and '40s with its farcically twisted plot concerning Imogen Poots and Owen Wilson as a starlet on the rise and her neurotic director, but the narrative convolutions rarely add up to a decent punchline and the dialogue is only superficially funny. Modern moviegoers just won't get it and cineastes mightn't be too impressed either.

Immediately, Poots' Brooklyn 'New Yawk' accent strikes an odd note – is that nasal twanging supposed to be funny, or is she just overcooking it? The only thing we can know for sure about Izzy is that she's an incurable romantic, »

'Deutschland 83,' 'The Americans,' and the End of an Era in TV Drama (Trailer)

23 June 2015 1:39 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In the closing moments of the next "Deutschland 83" (SundanceTV), the first German-language series to air on U.S. television, protagonist Martin Rauch (Jonas Nay) orders a round of "crazy" cocktails for himself and a beautiful young woman. For all the novelty of a Cold War espionage thriller set in the bureaucratic heart of West Germany, however, the music cue that accompanies the moment is strangely familiar. Underlining the action with David Bowie's "Modern Love," released in 1983 and recently revived by Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig in "Frances Ha" (2012), the otherwise efficient, engrossing "Deutschland 83" exhibits its one notable flaw, a worrisome example of the medium's fast-approaching future, which is a recurring sense of déjà vu.

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Original Screenplay

23 June 2015 10:16 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A year after not one woman was nominated in either screenplay category, it looks like we're heading toward a much needed change of pace. Believe it or not, Amy Schumer could very well be able to call herself an Oscar nominee a year from now if "Trainwreck" can ride its extremely strong reviews to some deserved Oscar buzz (like "Bridesmaids" did when it got a nomination here).  And Schumer could be joined by "Bridesmaids" co-scribe Annie Mumolo (teaming with David O. Russell to write the "Joy" script), previous winner here Diablo Cody ("Ricki and the Flash"), Greta Gerwig (who co-wrote "Mistress America" with Noah Baumbach"), Abi Morgan ("Suffragette") and none other than Angelina Jolie (who wrote her next directorial effort, "By The Sea"). Imagine that lineup of nominees? Best Original Screenplay predictions below. Check out predictions in other categories here. The Lock: Bob Petersen & »

James Morrison’s 'Diverge' wins Us in Progress prize

12 June 2015 5:18 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Sci-fi thriller wins fourth edition of Us indie showcase in Paris.

James Morrison’s debut sci-fi thriller Diverge has won the fourth edition of indie showcase Us in Progress in Paris.

The time-warp drama revolves around the survivor of a global catastrophe who is given a chance to reclaim his lost former life by stopping the man who caused the cataclysmic event - himself.

It is debut feature for Morrison after shorts Stay True and Little Brother, which travelled the North American festival circuit.

The Paris Us in Progress showcase – a joint initiative between the American Film Festival in Wroclaw, Champs-Élysées Film Festival in Paris and Black Rabbit Film – aims to connect upcoming Us independent films with distributors and sales agents in Europe.

Last year’s winner, Benjamin Dickinson’s Creative Control premiered at SXSW, where it took the Special Jury Recognition for Visual Excellence award, before being picked up for international sales by Paris-based The Coproduction »

Checking in on That Orson Welles Crowdfunding Campaign

11 June 2015 9:53 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

A month in, with 25 days to go, and the Indiegogo campaign to finish Welles' last film has so far just barely exceeded a quarter of its goal. The crusade for "The Other Side of the Wind," a 15-year-long passion project abandoned when Welles died in 1985, has thus far attracted the support of Edgar Wright, Wes Anderson, Noah Baumbach, Peter Bogdanovich and Brett Ratner. But despite celebrity backing, and a goal whittled down from $2 million to $1 million, the crowd-funding effort is still slogging toward the finish line even in the wake of Welles' centennial. This is an expensive project that the campaigners are fully throwing their weight behind, with lots of exclusive swag if you decide to donate — including a lucky 35mm print of the film.

At this point, I could watch Noah Baumbach and Great Gerwig read the phone book. They are just that good together.

The first trailer for their latest collaboration, Mistress America, was released on Wednesday and it looks like it will be the spiritual sequel to Frances Ha we all didn’t know we needed. The film stars Gerwig and Lola Kirke.

In this film, Tracy (Kirke) is a lonely college freshman in New York, having neither the exciting university experience nor the glamorous metropolitan lifestyle she envisioned. But when she is taken in by her soon-to-be stepsister, Brooke (Gerwig) – a resident of Times Square and adventurous gal about town – she is rescued from her disappointment and seduced by Brooke’s alluringly mad schemes.

The film just oozes the same humor and spunk that Frances Ha had and with Baumbach »

The Mistress America Trailer Will Make You Want to Be Bff With Greta Gerwig

3 June 2015 3:10 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Greenberg and Frances Ha director Noah Baumbach has made yet another film with his muse (and real-life girlfriend), Greta Gerwig. Set in New York City, Mistress America features Gerwig as Brooke, an adventurous New Yorker who takes her soon-to-be stepsister (Lola Kirke) under her wing. Brooke lives in Times Square, freelances as an interior decorator, and prides herself on being an autodidact. She also spouts off useful advice like: "There is no cheating when you're 18. You should all be touching each other all the time." Even if you haven't seen Baumbach and Gerwig's previous collaborations, it's time to hop aboard the quirky train. Mistress America opened to great reviews at the Sundance Film Festival, and it hits theaters on Aug. 14. »
