Michael Douglas and his ex-wife Diandra Luker have put their luxury estate on the market for around £40 million. The couple, who were married from 1977 to 2000, share the property in Valldemossa, on the west coast of Mallorca, during the year, with the 'Falling Down' actor having it from January to June, while Diandra has it for the remainder of the year.

The couple announced a trial separation in August 2013 but have since reunited. Earlier this year, meanwhile, Diandra moved to quell speculation that Catherine was keen to acquire her share of the luxurious property, insisting she hadn't made any offer for her stake in the house.

Dad's Army: Pike actor Ian Lavender 'shocked' by Blake Harrison's scarf

28 November 2014 6:36 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Dad's Army actor Ian Lavender has criticised the costuming of the forthcoming big-screen reboot of the classic sitcom.

Lavender, who played Private Pike on the show, has taken issue with the scarf worn by his counterpart Blake Harrison in the film version.

Lavender spotted the difference between the scarf he wore and the scarf now worn by Harrison while shooting a cameo on set.

Speaking to the Birmingham Mail, Lavender said: "It looked like a banana split to me. I'm colour blind so I'm not sure what colours it was, but there was definitely a yellow in there.

"It certainly wasn't an Aston Villa scarf. I was deeply shocked."

He added: "I'm not sure why they changed it. I'm told it was already committed to film by the time I got there so there wasn't a lot I could do about it."

Bill Nighy and Catherine Zeta-Jones are among the cast of the forthcoming film. »

19 November 2014 3:27 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Mark Gatiss has revealed that he was "sceptical" about the upcoming Dad's Army movie remake.

The Sherlock co-creator and actor will star as Captain Mainwaring's colonel-in-chief in the new version, Radio Times reports.

Afm Kicks Off With Prestige Fare Amid Global Shifts & Hunt For The Perfect Fit

5 November 2014 2:00 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

A decade ago, when the Afm forged in to replace Mifed in November, it was a bastion of B-movies with B-List stars hawking themselves in multiple films, and a slew of deals that often didn’t result in anything. Now, with studios only wanting to finance sequels and superhero movies, and requiring partners to fully fund or partly pay for everything else on their slates, indie companies have new currency and are dealing with some of the biggest films in the business, with everyone from Gary Ross (The Free State Of Jones) to Quentin Tarantino (The Hateful 8) in Santa Monica courting foreign buyers.

As it sheds the schlockfest stigma the Afm once bore, attendees are focused on the increased importance of offshore returns and a more disciplined approach to the business. There’s a lot of money in the market, but rigor is key while packaging has become tougher as »

5 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As final prep took place for the 35th American Film Market in Santa Monica, temperatures began rising — and so did optimism that the independent marketplace would generate significant transactions.

Adding to the positive vibes were several recent funding announcements: Kevin Frakes’ PalmStar backing Basil Iwanyk’s Thunder Road and Bill Block’s Qed plus Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp securing $600 million in financing with Scarlett Johanssen »
