Sacha Baron Cohen returns to Freddie Mercury biopic to star and direct

27 March 2015 4:21 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sacha Baron Cohen has rejoined the upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic.

The comedian, who previously exited the project after reportedly falling out with the remaining members of Queen, will now help to write, produce and direct the movie, as well as taking the lead role.

Music Week reports that the band's manager of 40 years, Jim Beach, announced Baron Cohen's re-appointment at the Artist and Manager Awards 2015 last night (March 26).

Skyfall actor Ben Whishaw had been singled out by Queen drummer Roger Taylor as a preferred replacement for Baron Cohen back in 2013.

The band also expressed concerns that the comedian's involvement would turn the project, based on the late singer's life, into "a joke".

Sacha Baron Cohen can next be seen in the Louis Leterrier-directed spy spoof Grimsby.

The comedy, which also stars Rebel Wilson, Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane, Gabourey Sidibe, Isla Fisher and Annabelle Wallis, will be released on July »

New Projects: Patty Hearst, ‘Barbershop 3′, and a Lego spinoff

26 March 2015 11:07 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Just days after the 39th anniversary of the conviction of Patty Hearst back on March 20, 1976, Deadline is reporting that Fox 2000 has acquired the rights to a new, untitled book being written by Jeffrey Toobin about the life and kidnapping of Hearst. The writers behind Big Eyes, Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, will be adapting Toobin’s account.

Deadline is also speculating the role might also be in development for Jennifer Lawrence, but those talks are currently preliminary.

Hearst was 20 when she was kidnapped from her wealthy parents in the Hearst Publishing Family. She was later found to have changed her name to Tania and had joined up with her kidnappers, the Symbionese Liberation Army and eventually robbed a bank in San Francisco. Hearst’s story, based on her own novel, was first adapted into a film in 1988 by Paul Schrader, with Natasha Richardson in the role. Hearst is now 61.

And the Cannes line-up is…?

26 March 2015 4:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Gazing into the crystal ball, Screen rounds up its Cannes predictions.

With the unveiling of Cannes Film Festival’s Official Selection now exactly three weeks away buzz over the titles that Thierry Fremaux and his team will select for the 68th edition is hitting fever pitch.

Official teaser announcements have started to roll this week, led by the confirmation on Wednesday that George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road would premiere in an Out of Competition screening on May 14.

Earlier the week, Cannes unveiled its poster featuring Ingrid Bergman to mark the centenary of the late big screen’s birth and it was announced that Stig Bjorkman’s documentary Ingrid Bergman – In Her Own Words would show in Cannes Classics as part of the commemorations.

For the rest of the Official Selection, except perhaps the opening film which is traditionally revealed in advance, Cannes watchers will have to wait for the announcement press conference in Paris on April »

Derek and Hansel Frolic in New Zoolander 2 Images

25 March 2015 11:47 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Break out your best Blue Steel. The long-awaited comedy sequel Zoolander 2 doesn’t begin production for another month or two, but that doesn’t mean Ben Stiller is keeping everything under wraps until then. He and Owen Wilson recently showed up in character as Derek and Hansel during Fashion Week in Paris, dropping the first images of the two back in costume after 14 years. Now, even more Zoolander 2 images have landed online from the duo’s time in Paris, and it’s clear they haven’t missed a beat. We still don’t have any plot details on Zoolander 2, but Stiller is returning to direct, Penelope Cruz has joined the cast, and Will Ferrell and Christine Taylor are expected to return. The first film was a box office disappointment (to be fair, it was released two weeks after 9/11), but it found a large following on home video—remember Blockbuster? »

Now Digital Spy has uploaded some photos of Wilson and Stiller as Hansel and Derek Zoolander making mischief in front of the Eiffel Tower.

Whether the shots were for the film or merely for promotional reasons remains to be seen….

The site also mentions that director Justin Theroux could possibly be replaced by Stiller due to commitments with his television show, The Leftovers, but no official comment on this has been announced.

Watch Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson walk the runway at Paris Fashion Week

11 March 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Derek Zoolander and Hansel are back, strutting their stuff not on screen but on the Valentino runway on Tuesday at Paris Fashion Week. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson made an appearance as their iconic 2001 characters at the event, subsequently announcing Zoolander 2 for release on February 12, 2016.

Pret-a-Reporter is reporting that the film is currently shooting in Rome and that Penelope Cruz is on board to appear in the sequel along with Will Ferrell returning and Justin Theroux (Tropic Thunder, Iron Man 2) writing the screenplay.

The original Zoolander from 2001 has been something of a cult darling as Stiller has moved on to bigger and better things, but this will also be Stiller’s fifth feature film and his follow-up to The Secret Life of Walter Mitty from 2013. Stiller is also serving as producer on this film as well as two other major upcoming sequels, Space Jam 2 and Dodgeball 2. »

Ben Stiller And Owen Wilson Announce Zoolander 2 Release Date In Hilarious Fashion

10 March 2015 9:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fourteen years after taking to the catwalks as Derek Zoolander and Hansel in the hit original, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson today returned to the fashion scene at the Valentino’s show in Paris to formally — and hilariously — announce Zoolander 2, which is due to hit theaters on February 12, 2016.

Remaining in character as dumb and dumber 2.0, the pair brought their A game to the runway, though the jury is still out on which look they were modelling. The infamous Blue Steel? Magnum? We’ll let you decide.

Shortly after their appearance, Paramount Pictures confirmed the sequel’s release date via Twitter.

So hot right now: Derek & Hansel blaze down the @MaisonValentino runway, #Zoolander2 announced. Coming Feb. 12, 2016.

Paramount Pictures (@ParamountPics) March 10, 2015

Given that the first film launched all the way back in 2001, talk of a Zoolander 2 has been simmering on the brink of development for quite some time. »

Pictures: 'Zoolander 2' Officially Announced at Paris Fashion Week

Zoolander 2 has officially been announced as Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson took over Paris Fashion Week in character as Derek Zoolander and Hansel as part of an announcement the sequel to the 2001 comedy would be arriving on February 12, 2016. Granted, we pretty much already knew this was happening, with Will Ferrell expected to return as Mugatu and Penelope Cruz joining the cast as Justin Theroux (Dedication) steps in to direct. Still no official word on a synopsis, but last heard it would find Derek (Stiller) hired to be a personal model for an Arab Sheikh which is when he finds out models are being turned into oil. Sounds good to me. Watch video of Stiller and Wilson as Derk and Hansel as they take the runway below. sb id="1497463" height="360" width="640" »
