Are The Farrelly Brothers Breaking Up?

28 January 2015 7:21 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Bobby and Peter Farrelly have been joined at the hip since 1994 . cinematically speaking, of course. Their first film together was with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in Dumb and Dumber, and they.ve since gone on to direct eleven feature films together. But is it finally time for them to cut the chord and set out to make waves on their own? We wonder, because Bobby has signed on to direct his first movie without his big brother. As reported by The Wrap, he will helm a comedy called One Night Stan, which was something that both brothers were originally attached to. Though, Peter is at least working on it as an executive producer. The story is also very Farrelly Brothers-esque: Stan, known for his one-night stands, finally considers settling down when he falls in love with a woman named Amy, but she too "has her own ideas about relationships. »

That Steve Jobs Biopic Finally Has a Cast

28 January 2015 5:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The game of musical chairs that is the Steve Jobs biopic has finally come to an end (we think).

The Aaron Sorkin-penned project has seen several stars come and go (Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale), one high-profile director come and go (David Fincher), and even a studio come and go (Sony gave it up, now it's being made by Universal). The quagmire of a movie became somewhat infamous due to the Sony email hack.

Well, now all is settled. "Steve Jobs" began filming this week, with these actors: Michael Fassbender as Jobs; Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak; Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley; and Kate Winslet as Joanna Hoffman, former Macintosh marketing chief.

The movie is made up of three, long, real-time scenes, the last of which focuses on the 1998 launch of the iMac. At the least, that should prove to be colorful. »
