Directors Update With Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu, Spike Jonze, Todd Phillips And More

18 August 2014 7:42 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu will be opening his highly anticipated "Birdman" this fall, will shoot "The Revenant" not long after, and has a new TV show on the way, "The One Percent." Starz has just given the show a straight-to-series order, with the program bringing together the unlikely cast of Hilary Swank, Ed Helms and Ed Harris, telling the story of "a downtrodden farmer (Helms) as he struggles to hold onto his family and his farm, when a bizarre twist of fate becomes a life-changing secret that will either save them or ruin them." We're intrigued. [Deadline] Spike Jonze is teaming up with Jonah Hill to co-write a one-act play for fashion label Opening Ceremony. You'll be able to see it during New York Fashion Week. Jonze will direct, but Hill won't be taking a role. [EW] Lone Scherfig ("An Education," the upcoming "The Riot Club") has taken over for Nick Cassavetes to direct the ABC pilot. »

The Other Woman Blu-Ray Review

4 August 2014 11:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Post-Bridesmaids, Hollywood is finally picking up on the fact that audiences want to see more female-led comedies. And since that landmark, there have been a few enjoyable flicks that have followed in its footsteps (the caustic Bachelorette and over-the-top buddy cop comedy The Heat come first to mind). Unfortunately, there have also been a few entries in the genre which one could fairly call regressive, whose female characters only relate to one another, or life as a whole, through men. The Other Woman, despite initial appearances, falls firmly into the latter category – in addition to being cheaply written, disappointingly stale and (worst of all) very guilty of squandering its two female leads.

That the film’s screenplay comes from a female writer – Melissa Stack, whose work here will undoubtedly secure her a long career in Hollywood – just heightens my confusion at The Other Woman‘s treatment of its lead characters. »

Love According to 21st Century Movies

27 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Love is a many-splendored thing. Love lifts us up where we belong. All you need is love!” so says Ewan McGregor in Baz Luhrmann’s classic romantic tragedy, Moulin Rouge!

It’s a thought that has persisted in cinema for well over a century. Love is what motivates characters; it’s a dream they want to realize, a reality they have to face, the content of their musings in their nightly diary entries.

Decades of cinema have seen the nature of other genres completely overturned. More and more, horrors are gearing towards high-concept supernatural thrillers over human killers; comedies are willing to get raunchier, with a whole lot more swearing; action movies are only too eager to show off brutal set-pieces; and comic book movies and sci-fi films have the effects capable of making the unreal real.

But romance? How much has that changed? And how much do we really want it to? »

People confirmed the news on Wednesday, shortly after Ok! first claimed that Ryan's girlfriend of three years, Eva Mendes, is expecting her first child. A source told Ok! that Eva has "been ready for motherhood for a while now" and that she wants to get married to Ryan.

Ryan Gosling wanted to throw Rachel McAdams off the Notebok Set

4 July 2014 12:20 AM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams are talented actors, because The Notebook shows no signs of behind-the-scenes strife.

According to director Nick Cassavetes, the co-stars' chemistry on set wasn't as evident as it was when the movie was released in theaters. "Maybe I'm not supposed to tell this story, but they were really not getting along one day on set. Really not," he recalls to Vh1. "And Ryan came to me, and there's 150 people standing in this big scene, and he says, 'Nick come here.' And he's doing a scene with Rachel and he says, 'Would you take her out of here and bring in another actress to read off camera with me?' I said, 'What?' He says, 'I can't. I can't do it with her. I'm just not getting anything from this."

Ryan Gosling tried to get Rachel McAdams replaced while filming The Notebook

3 July 2014 7:44 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

As much as I dislike the works of author Nicholas Sparks, I have to admit that The Notebook may be the most tolerable. Yes, it is tripe and overly sentimental, but the romance between Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams feels genuine. And then I heard the news that Gosling and McAdams did not get along during production on the Nick Cassavetes film. In fact, Cassavetes revealed that Gosling wanted McAdams fired from the production.

Ryan Gosling Apparently Hated Rachel McAdams While Shooting 'The Notebook'

2 July 2014 1:36 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"The Notebook" turned ten years old in June, and for some, it reignited the passion and tears the movie first evoked a decade ago. For others, it was just a reminder of when Ryan Gosling was still an up-and-coming actor, doing the kind of movies he wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole today. Meanwhile, for other folks, mostly those who track gossip history, the movie marked the first encounter between future sweethearts, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. And here's a story that may dampen that narrative a bit. While you might thank that sparks on the set of the film led to Gosling and McAdams getting close later on, that's not quite the case. Speaking with VH1, director Nick Cassavetes reveals that Gosling actually couldn't stand his co-star at all. "Maybe, I’m not supposed to tell this story, but they were really not getting along one day on set. »
