As Predicted Here, Resolution Agents Adam Kanter And Martin Spencer Land At Paradigm; Which Clients Will Come?

13 March 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

As Deadline reported last Friday, Paradigm has confirmed that agents Adam Kanter and Martin Spencer have joined the agency after their abrupt exits from Resolution. Word had raced last week that this was happening, as the two agents did not want to take paycuts from their low-seven-figure salaries. The two joined Jeff Berg last year shortly after he left ICM to launch Resolution, and those agents came from CAA. At Paradigm, they should feel right at home alongside former CAA cohorts Bob Bookman, Ken Stovitz, Rand Holston and most recently Manny Nunez. Related: Resolution Agents Martin Spencer, Adam Kanter Exiting; Paradigm Next Stop? So now, the big question is which clients will join them in the move. Here are the ones I’m hearing are most likely to make the jump to Paradigm: Stuart Beattie, Stalingrad helmer Fedor Bondarchuk, Joe Johnston, Mark Steven Johnson, Malcolm Lee, Rob Minkoff, Evan and Shea Mirzai, »

Universal Pictures clearly knows when they have a good thing going and having already had an early January hit with the Ice Cube-Kevin Hart action-comedy Ride Along , they're reteaming with that movie's producer Will Packer (pictured) for another comedy called Girls Trip under his Will Packer Productions banner. If that weren't enough to guarantee a hit, they've also hired director Malcolm Lee to helm the comedy, Lee coming off his own enormous Universal hit The Best Man Holiday , which opened to the tune of $30 million in just 2,024 theaters last November and grossed $70 million domestically.

We’re a little light on quantity at What to Watch this week but not on quality. And our newest contributor, Dave Canfield, has already handled today’s release of “All is Lost,” a film you really should add to whatever queue allows you to see quality films. When you’re done with that, pick one of these five. Ok, four. Ignore “Diana.” Please.

The Returned: Season One”

Netflix landed a lot of press for the way they stormed the gates of the TV industry in 2013 but I think the story of The Sundance Channel’s evolution into a major player was under-reported. Jane Campion’s “The Top of the Lake” and the brilliant “Rectify” would have been enough but this import of a French series was actually their best program, and one of the best on TV overall. »

One of the scenes in The Best Man Holiday that’s sure to be talked about (and enjoyed) is when the male cast members entertain their female counterparts with a performance of New Edition’s “Can You Stand the Rain.” Director Malcolm D. Lee sets up the scene, which has its roots in his own lip-synching days at Georgetown. “After dinner, Mia (played by Monica Calhoun), tells the guys that they are not going to have dessert until they do ‘air band.’ This catches them by surprise. She has the jackets, hats and outfits they had circa 1991, and they’re going to … Continue reading →

This comes just as Mia receives some serious news about her health that will have complications for everyone involved. (Be sure to stock up on the tissues!)

Here is our exclusive interview with Monica, where we chat about everything from resurrecting her character ten years later to Morris Chestnut's essence. Just don't ask her about the third chapter of this saga. »

20 January 2014 9:11 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

One of the nicest surprises when the 45th NAACP Image Awards Nominations were announced recently, was the nomination for Outstanding Direction for A Motion Picture, which went to Jono Oliver for his independent film Home. He joins Steve McQueen, Malcolm D. Lee and Lee Daniels, who were also nominated for best director.And no doubt both Tambay and I have both raved about Home, because, simply, it’s really worth it (Here, Here and Here); but what about Oliver himself? Though Home is his first feature film as a director, he has had years of experience in filmmaking as a DGA assistant director on films and TV shows as such The Great Debaters, Notorious, Guess Who, Barbershop 2, »
