Week in Review: Study reveals growing gender gap in film industry

24 April 2015 10:27 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This week, Variety reported on a study that was released confirming what many already know about the film industry, or at the very least anecdotally: Women are having an increasingly hard time breaking in.

The study showed that there’s a large gender gap between independently financed and directed projects by women when compared to projects within the studio system. The Sundance Institute and Women in Film looked at movies in competition at Sundance between 2002 and 2014 compared to the top 1300 grossing films between the same time period. Men appeared at Sundance at a ratio of 3 to 1 more often than women, but an even more staggering 23 to 1 when looking at studio films.

Further, half of the industry executives surveyed believed that films directed by women did not appeal as broadly as films directed by men. A quarter of those surveyed added that they shared a “perceived lack of ambition” in women directors, »

24 April 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Robert Downey Jr is turning to ABC's Diane Sawyer to 'correct' his promotional experience after a combative interview with the UK's Krishnan Guru-Murthy.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron star walked out of his Channel 4 News interview with anchor Krishnan Guru-Murthy this week after taking issue with his choice of questions about the actor's time in prison and his addiction issues.

Avengers 2 stars Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner sorry for Black Widow "slut" joke

Before walking out on Guru-Murthy, Downey made reference to the atmosphere seeming "a little Diane Sawyer" in regard to tough questioning.

Downey ran into the real Diane Sawyer while taping an appearance for Live! with Kelly and Michael at ABC's New York headquarters on Friday (April 24).

Stanley Tucci Joins 'Beauty and the Beast' as a New Character

23 April 2015 6:20 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The already insanely star-studded cast of Disney's upcoming live-action remake of "Beauty and the Beast" just added another big name: Stanley Tucci.

Variety reports that the "Hunger Games" star just signed on for the flick, and will be playing a role created specifically for the new version. The character is named Cadenza, and is described by Variety as a "grand piano, a new character to the realm who is described as a neurotic maestro."

Tucci's casting should round out the ensemble, which just added Ewan McGregor earlier this week. "Beauty" stars Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Emma Thompson, Ian McKellen, Josh Gad, Audra McDonald, and Kevin Kline.

Production is scheduled to start later this year. "Beauty and the Beast" is due in theaters on March 17, 2017.

Ewan McGregor To Light Up ‘Beauty And The Beast’ As Lumiere

23 April 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ewan McGregor, maybe better known as a young Obi Wan Kenobi, is reportedly in the final stages of signing on to join the live-action remake of Disney’s Beauty And The Beast.

McGregor will play Lumiere, the confident, show-stealing maitre d’/candelabra, who gets his own solo in catchy tune Be Our Guest. Ewan is no stranger to singing, having blown minds in the 2001 musical drama Moulin Rouge.

It’s not like Beauty And The Beast needs much more star power. If a deal is made he’ll be featuring alongside Emma Watson (Belle), Dan Stevens (Beast/Prince), Luke Evans (Gaston), Josh Gad (Le Fou), Ian McKellen (Cogsworth), Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts), Kevin Kline (Maurice), Stanley Tucci (Cadenza), Audra McDonald (Garderobe), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Plumette) and Adrian Schiller (Monsieur D’Arque). Now that’s a cast!

Disney’s Live-Action Beauty And The Beast Adds Hunger Games Star Stanley Tucci

22 April 2015 8:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the majority of leading parts already filled, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Disney had all but finished casting duties on its upcoming live-action retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Yesterday brought news that Ewan McGregor was in negotiations to play Lumiere, meaning that the Scottish actor would join an ensemble cast that consists of Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson, and Luke Evans, not to mention Dan Stevens and Emma Watson as the titular, besotted duo.

However, Variety brings word that there is still space for The Hunger Games star Stanley Tucci, who has reportedly signed on a new character known as Cadenza, the grand piano in Bill Condon’s modern rendition. Aside from that not, not much was disclosed about the nature of this novel addition, though Variety’s report claims Cadenza is a neurotic maestro — not unlike Tucci’s Caesar Flickerman, then.

Ewan McGregor joins live-action 'Beauty and the Beast'

21 April 2015 6:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ewan McGregor is the latest to join what’s shaping up to be quite the lovely cast for Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast.” The Scottish actor will play Lumiere, The Hollywood Reporter posted Tuesday. The charming McGregor seems well-suited for the suave, free-spirited candelabra, and we bet he’ll have way too much fun working with Ian McKellen, who’s playing Lumiere’s buddy Cogsworth. Now just imagine — the star of “Moulin Rouge!” belting out “Be Our Guest.” We’ll give you a moment to dwell on that wonderful thought. It’s not totally clear which songs will be in this film, but word is that it will feature a score by Alan Menken, who won two Oscars for Disney’s 1991 animated “Beauty and the Beast,” plus new recordings of the 1991 movie’s songs and new songs by Menken and Tim Rice. Also announced today: Stanley Tucci will be in the film, »
