29 August 2016 12:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Gene Wilder, who regularly stole the show in such comedic gems as “The Producers,” “Blazing Saddles,” “Young Frankenstein,” “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” and “Stir Crazy,” died Monday at his home in Stamford, Conn. His nephew Jordan Walker-Pearlman said he died of complications from Alzheimer’s disease. He was 83.

His nephew said in a statement, “We understand for all the emotional and physical challenges this situation presented we have been among the lucky ones — this illness-pirate, unlike in so many cases, never stole his ability to recognize those that were closest to him, nor took command of his central-gentle-life affirming core personality. The decision to wait until this time to disclose his condition wasn’t vanity, but more so that the countless young children that would smile or call out to him “there’s Willy Wonka,” would not have to be then exposed to an adult referencing illness or »

Film Nerd 2.0: When kids ask hard questions about history, does Hollywood help or hurt?

26 April 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

“I want to be in the Army.” That statement prompted a frantic phone call from my ex-wife, and an entire series of conversations. It also inspired a very particular screening of a very particular film, one in a series of recent screenings that have spoken to Toshi’s developing interests in both history and Hollywood. While movies are very important to Toshi, they are less important than Allen, and I suspect there will come a time where I lose Allen to other interests. That’s fine with me. Whatever he’s interested in and excited by, I’ll encourage him. Right now, his interests are more in games and puzzles and building things. Minecraft is pretty much the perfect intersection of all of Allen’s energies. As a result, when I am picking things that we’re all going to watch together, I find myself going mainstream and populist and easy. »

Teen Wolf Star Kelsey Asbille Plots Course For Wind River

25 April 2016 8:06 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Kelsey Asbille has plot course for Wind RiverTaylor Sheridan’s starry crime thriller that is currently shooting in Utah.

Deadline has the scoop, revealing that the Teen Wolf star joins an ensemble that already includes Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen in leading roles, flanked by The Walking Dead and Daredevil fan-favorite Jon Bernthal, Graham Greene, Julia Jones and Gil Birmingham.

Sheridan, meanwhile, takes point for his directorial debut after serving as screenwriter on Denis Villeneuve’s intense narcotics thriller, Sicario. Wind River represents a different kettle of fish, though maintains those core, thriller tenets.

Essentially, Sheridan’s feature places Olsen in the role of a rookie FBI agent who, after stumbling upon the death of a young girl, seeks help from a burned out veteran game tracker (Renner), who harbors a haunted past of his own that remains largely under wraps for the time being.

Together, the unlikely duo »

31 March 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fury and Daredevil star Jon Bernthal may have spent much of the past fortnight quelling rumors about a potential Marvel spinoff based on The Punisher, but there are other projects afoot for the actor, and Deadline is reporting that Bernthal has enlisted for Taylor Sheridan’s directorial debut, Wind River.

Also starring fellow Avengers Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen, not to mention Graham Greene along with Julia Jones and Gil Birmingham of Twilight fame, today’s casting tidbit marks a reunion for Bernthal with Sheridan, who penned Denis Villeneuve’s intense white-knuckle ride Sicario late last year.

Residing in the thriller genre, Wind River places Olsen in the role of a rookie FBI agent who, after investigating the death of a young girl, seeks the help of a local veteran (Renner). Shouldering a tragedy of his own, Renner’s haunted game tracker agrees to search for answers on a remote Native American reservation. »
