What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

1 October 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

Fox developing a half hour sitcom based on the Tom Hanks classic Big

30 September 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

The 1988 comedy Big represented a turning point in the career of Tom Hanks. Prior to Big, Hanks was known for comedy and not serious dramatic roles. Big afforded him the chance to stretch his acting muscles which would eventually turn him into one of the premier actors of his generation. Now, the Penny Marshall directed film, photographed by Barry Sonnenfeld, and written by Gary Ross, is becoming a Fox sitcom. Deadline are reporting that Enlisted creators Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce have »

Q&A: ‘The Giver’s Lois Lowry And Phillip Noyce On The Give And Take Between Author And Director

15 August 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Outside of the Angelina Jolie action film Salt, all the hits on Australian helmer Phillip Noyce’s resume are book adaptations. That ranges from his breakout hit Dead Calm to Patriot Games, Clear And Present Danger, Sliver, The Bone Collector, Rabbit-Proof Fence, and The Quiet American; he is currently adapting Philip Roth’s American Pastoral. Noyce’s latest book transfer is The Weinstein Company’s The Giver, a Michael Mitnick and Robert B. Weiden-scripted adaptation of Lois Lowry’s Newbery Medal-winning children’s novel that took 21 years to reach the screen. That glacial development pace allowed high action dystopian tomes like The Hunger Games and Divergent to score with young audiences, books that were written much later and likely were influenced by Lowry. Vets Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Alexander Skarsgard and Katie Holmes are surrounded by young audience pleasing newcomers Brenton Thwaites, Odeya Rush, Cameron Monaghan and Taylor Swift, but »

Jennifer Lawrence’s ‘Glass Castle’ Gains Momentum at Lionsgate

8 August 2014 9:11 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate’s “The Glass Castle,” starring Jennifer Lawrence, is gaining momentum after two years in development.

The studio is in negotiations with a “major” actor for the drama, CEO Jon Feltheimer disclosed during the company’s conference call with analysts Friday as part of a discussion about upcoming projects.

Destin Cretton, director of “Short Term 12,” was attached a year ago to direct and rewrite the script with Andrew Lanham. Marti Noxon wrote the first draft of the adaptation of Jeannette Walls’ 2005 bestselling memoir.

The story follows a young girl raised in dysfunctional family with an eccentric artist mother and an alcoholic father. Lawrence is producing with Gil Netter.

Lawrence has been a key figure in Lionsgate’s success, with her first two “Hunger Games” films grossing over $1.6 billion worldwide and two impending “Mockingjay” sequels slated for November 2014 and 2015. Feltheimer said Friday that “Mockingjay – Part 1″ should outperform “Catching Fire,” which grossed $865 million worldwide. »

Selfies, Jennifer Lawrence and the modern movie star

27 June 2014 1:59 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The movie star isn't a thing of the past - it's just a changing phenomenon in the face of the web, Ryan writes...

Feature

Taken at this year’s Academy Awards, a photograph of a huddled group of Hollywood actors quickly became the most shared image in social media’s short history. In this single shot - taken by Bradley Cooper and posted by Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres, who are surrounded by such familiar faces as Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts and Brad Pitt, we get a glimpse of how the modern movie star has changed in the past 20 years.

The movie star phenomenon began in the early 20th century, when actors such as Mary Pickford and Charlie Chaplin became famous enough to secure ticket sales by themselves. Hollywood studios initially resisted the rising phenomenon of the movie star with all the strength they could muster; with stardom came a demand for things like higher salaries, »

25 June 2014 8:13 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The folks behind The Hunger Games: Mockingjay- Part 1 have just released a new viral clip. It's an address from President Snow (Donald Sutherland) to the people of Panem. In it, he preaches a message of unity, while being flanked by Peeta (Josh Hutcherson).

Watch the clip below, which is also part of a viral website and promotes the hashtag "#OnePanem":

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay- Part 1 is adapted from the first half of the epic conclusion of the trilogy of books by Suzanne Collins, and it's due to arrive in theaters on November 24. The fourth film, Mockingjay- Part 2, will be released next year on November 20.

Q&A: ‘Bates Motel’ Showrunner Carlton Cuse Reflects on His Big Break

20 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As an executive producer and writer on “Lost” and showrunner of “Bates Motel” and the upcoming FX series “The Strain,” Carlton Cuse knows how to keep a secret. But the two-time Emmy winner said that seeing his name alongside Army Archerd’s in the pages of Variety meant he wasn’t a secret any more.

What do you recall from that time in your life?

I started my career as a development executive. On the side, I was writing, honing my craft so that I could jump across the desk and be the person coming in and pitching projects rather than the person trying to develop them.

Did you learn a lot from reading scripts?

I learned what it meant to be a good writer and what it meant to write a script that would get made. It also inspired me to put in the hours honing my craft.

David O. Russell's 'Joy', Likely Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Set for Christmas 2015

6 June 2014 8:01 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It was reported earlier this year that David O. Russell and his American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook golden girl, Jennifer Lawrence, were looking to reteam once again on a film titled Joy and now Fox has set the film for a Christmas Day 2015 release. Lawrence isn't confirmed for the role just yet, though she was Russell's first pick earlier this year. The story follows the life story of Joy Mangano (Lawrence), a struggling Long Island single mom of three who became one of the country's most successful entrepreneurs with her self-wringing Miracle Mop invention. Russell rewrote the script, which was originally penned by Annie Mumolo, one-half of the Bridesmaids screenwriting duo. No word on when filming will take place as Lawrence is currently working on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 and Part 2 and will once again play Mystique in X-Men: Apocalypse as well as her attachment to »

Lionsgate Launching The Hunger Games Touring Exhibit in Summer 2015

30 May 2014 9:09 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When director Gary Ross’ adaptation of The Hunger Games opened in March 2012, few could have predicted just how successful the film would be.  Even after the pic garnered overwhelmingly positive reviews and grossed nearly $700 million at the box office, many still figured the sequel would fall short.  Alas, director Francis Lawrence’s follow-up The Hunger Games: Catching Fire surpassed the original in many ways (including box office), and now The Hunger Games stands—almost defiantly—as one of the most popular franchises around.  All good things must come to an end, though, and while there are still two films left to go (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Parts 1 & 2 open November 2014 and November 2015), Lionsgate is keen on milking the series for all its worth before its conclusion. The studio has announced today that, somewhat anachronistically, they will be launching The Hunger Games: The Exhibition in 2015, a touring exhibit that offers »
