‘Homeland’ Director Lesli Linka Glatter is Fearless (Emmy Video)

20 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It isn’t news when Lesli Linka Glatter earns another Emmy nomination for directing “Homeland” (Showtime) — this time, she’s gotten two, as well as sharing Best Drama with showrunners Alex Ganza and Howard Gordon and the other executive producers.

From the start, Glatter has deployed the rigorous discipline she learned from being a modern dance choreographer to meticulously preparing everything she does, from storyboards to character analysis.

After her AFI women’s directing program short was nominated for an Oscar in 1985, Steven Spielberg hired her to direct an episode of “Amazing Stories,” a huge-scale World War II battle sequence with soldiers storming a beach and 150 extras. Then there was nothing she couldn’t do. While she went on to direct the 1995 teen classic “Now and Then,” she has found more nourishment from television than movies.

She earned DGA and/or Emmy nominations for her directing on “Twin Peaks,” “Mad Men, »

‘Homeland’ Season 6: Claire Danes & Alex Gansa Take You Inside Their Annual CIA Meeting

19 July 2016 1:32 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Homeland” has always been a series focused on real-world issues. From domestic terrorism to foreign threats, the Emmy-winning Showtime drama — which landed three nominations in 2016 — has built a reputation for being politically insightful, year in and year out. But how do the producers know what’s pertinent, right now, to spies working around the world?

Well, they ask ’em.

Before each season gets underway, “Homeland” producers fly into Washington D.C. for an “intense” three-to-five-day information-gathering summit with CIA officials and intelligence officers who inform them of the most relevant risks to America.

'Spider-Man' and 'Ghostbusters' loom large in the plans of Sony Pictures Animation

20 June 2016 3:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sony Pictures Animation has always been the red-headed stepchild of studio animation arms. They’ve had a few big hits, a few mid-sized hits, and they’ve done a very good job of squeezing every possible penny out of the direct-to-video market with sequels to some of their titles. In the press release they sent out today, Sony made it clear that they’re doubling down on animation. Kristine Belson is the president of Sony Animation, answering directly to Tom Rothman, and she talked about letting artists drive the films they’re planning to make. It’s a pretty safe list overall, with an emphasis on pre-existing properties, and I have a hard time getting my head around how anyone is even remotely artistically moved by the idea of an Emoji movie. Some of the titles had already been announced, but there are new details on those, and some of the announcements were brand-new. »

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama

7 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Last year, Peter Dinklage took home his second Emmy Award for his role as Tyrion Lannister on “Game of Thrones.” Despite the impressive ensemble of the show, Dinklage could stand out again this year; he already has the best line of the season: “That’s what I do. I drink and I know things.” He could face competition from co-stars Kit Harington and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, neither of whom has been nominated yet.

Jonathan Banks is a likely repeat nominee for “Better Call Saul,” but his co-star Michael McKean was a scene stealer as well, and also the biggest villain of the season as he looked to usurp his own brother. McKean is a beloved vet who has never received an Emmy nomination and is long overdue.

We could see repeat nominations for Jon Voight (“Ray Donovan”) and Michael Kelly (“House of Cards”), as well as two actors whose shows left the air this year, »

‘Homeland’ Nearing Renewal for Seasons 7 and 8, Will Return in 2017

1 June 2016 11:28 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Homeland” is nearing a renewal for Season 7 and Season 8, Showtime CEO David Nevins told reporters on Wednesday.

“We’re just about done with a deal with Fox 21 for ‘Homeland ‘for three more years starting for season six,” he said on a conference call.

The hit series will also move from its regular fall premiere date to a winter debut scheduled for January 2017 in its upcoming sixth season. Season 6 will begin production in New York this August, once again starring Claire Danes, Rupert Friend, F. Murray Abraham and Mandy Patinkin.

Speaking to reporters, Nevins indicated that the series could run for many more seasons to come.

Homeland is a show that’s constantly reinventing itself,” Nevins said. “It’s not on a straight character trajectory path. It’s changing season to season. More than most, it’s a show that has an open-ended expiration date because of the subject matter. »

26 May 2016 10:54 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Homeland” will be back to home base for season 6.

The upcoming season of the hit Showtime series, which will be set in New York after spending the last season in Berlin, will tackle the U.S. presidential election.

“The entire season will take place between election day and inauguration day. It’s an interesting time; a transition and transfer of power is happening,” showrunner Alex Gansa said while kicking off the show’s Emmy campaign on Wednesday at a For Your Consideration panel.

“In that 72 days, we’re hopefully going to tell an interesting story,” he continued. “Whether the president is male or female, it’s going to be a very interesting character.”

After tiptoeing around the issue for months, Gansa also confirmed that Rupert Friend’s character, Quinn, will return following last season’s cliffhanger that left his fate up in the air.

Andre the Giant Movie Is Happening, Who Can Even Play Him?

10 May 2016 8:53 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Finally! We're getting an Andr&#233 the Giant biopic. But the man was so much larger than life, who can actually play him on screen without the assistance of CGI? Perhaps Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is the only one who can do the legendary wrestler justice. As the two were friends. But this is something Lion Forge Comics and producers Scott Steindorff and Dylan Russell will have to struggle with in the months ahead as Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven moves towards production.

The movie will be based on the graphic novel biography published last year, which chronicled the amazing life of this extraordinary giant. Andre's daughter Robin Christensen-Roussimoff will serve as a consultant on the movie, after assigning the exclusive rights to the producers. Says Scott Steindorff about the project.

Andre The Giant Biopic in the Works (Exclusive)

9 May 2016 12:11 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lion Forge Comics and producers Scott Steindorff and Dylan Russell have partnered to develop a feature film about the life of iconic pro wrestler Andre “The Giant” Roussimoff.

The project is based on the authorized graphic novel biography published last year, “Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven.” Roussimoff’s daughter Robin Christensen-Roussimoff will consult on the film and assigned the exclusive rights for the biography to the producers.

Andre the Giant rode the wave of the rise of wrestling in America, while suffering from the painful health condition of gigantism – there’s an Elephant Man story here,” Steindorff said.

In addition to his wrestling career, Roussimoff played a key role in Rob Reiner’s 1987 fantasy comedy “The Princess Bride” as Fezzik, part of a trio of bandits with characters played by Wallace Shawn and Mandy Patinkin. He began wrestling professionally at the age of 17 and was billed as being »

Harker’s Hits: Hollywood

14 April 2016 5:22 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

There’s no such thing as quiet days in Hollywood. There’s always something happening and today is no exception, so let’s jump right into the fray!

• Oscar-winning legend Warren Beatty’s been keeping a fairly low profile since his wildly expensive Town & Country bombed 15 years ago. But apparently the lothario (long-rumored to be the subject of Carly Simon’s enduring hit “You’re So Vain”) is coming out of semi-retirement as news broke that his pet project based on the life of famed millionaire/movie producer/shut-in Howard Hughes will be released this fall. (He’s been working on this since the ’70s as writer, director, producer, and star.) What’s of more interest to me/us is that he also said he’s working on a sequel to his uber-stylish, three-time Oscar-winning comic-book adaptation Dick Tracy. No word on whether bold-name costars like Annette Bening, Al Pacino, »
