Review: 'Everly' Allows Salma Hayek to Finally Wield Her Own Weapons

26 February 2015 1:16 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When it was announced that Kate Hudson would take on the starring role in Joe Lynch's "Everly," the casting was seen as a big career change: The role would transform Hudson from girl-next-door, rom-com queen to genuine action star; the good girl gone bad. Then she left the project. Enter Salma Hayek, whose embodiment of "Everly" inspired Lynch to completely change the character from the waifish, heroine-addict from the original, blacklisted script to the cheetah that Hayek portrays. Throughout her career, Hayek has played the types of characters who are perpetually surrounded by guns, yet rarely wield one themselves -- the possible exception being "Banditas," Luc Besson's 2006 period heist flick wherein she and Bff Penelope Cruz teamed up to rob banks. But even in her past Rodriguez films, like "Desperado" or "From Dusk Till Dawn," Hayek was more likely to nurse a wound, or put on a show, »

Oscar de la Renta, L’Wren Scott: Red Carpet Stars Who Won’t Be Forgotten

24 February 2015 8:58 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Looking back over the awards season that ended with the Oscars Feb. 22, the red carpet was a little less luminous owing to the loss of two of fashion’s brightest lights: designers Oscar de la Renta and L’Wren Scott.

Between them, de la Renta, 82, who lost his almost-decade-long battle with cancer in October, and Scott, 49, who passed tragically in March, have dressed the evening’s biggest stars, including Cameron Diaz, Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams, Penelope Cruz and Jennifer Garner.

“You always knew there was going to be a great Oscar dress on the red carpet,” says Elizabeth Saltzman, stylist to Gwyneth Paltrow. “He was the epitome of class and style and taste. I adored him. It’s for his clothing I would save my money, knowing how timeless each piece is, how beautifully made, how worthy, and chic, and not trendy.”

De la Renta’s timelessness, says Eric Daman, »

Zoolander 2 Exclusive: Derek Jr Is Grown Up, Super Smart And Seriously Overweight

19 February 2015 5:48 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

At the end of Zoolander, Derek’s baby son steals the show by doing his own first modelling face. It’s basically Blue Steel but smaller and cuter, and it looks very much like he’s about to toddle off in his father’s footsteps.

But he isn’t.

We have now learned that Zoolander 2 will feature Derek Jr. grown up to tweenage, and a very big tweenage at that. He’s become the opposite of his Dad and Jr. is now fat enough to upset Sr., but also smart enough to run rings around him.

There aren’t any obvious candidates for this role. I can’t think of a single well-known actor in the 10-12 age group who’s packing some extra weight. Maybe fans of the Disney channel will know somebody from one of their shows, but I’m completely at a loss. I »

Diane Kruger Joins Bryan Cranston For The Infiltrator

16 February 2015 2:21 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Inglourious Basterds star Diane Kruger has joined DEA thriller, The Infiltrator. Per Deadline, the actress has signed on to star opposite Breaking Bad alum Bryan Cranston in what’s been previously described as an “investigative thriller.” The sole scrap of information about Kruger’s involvement is this: she’s involved. Kruger is currently shooting Sky and the Penelope Cruz-starrer This Man, This Woman, so, it’s expected that she’ll be tackling this role upon completion of her previous commitments.

Until further details roll in on her female lead part, let’s take a look at the rest of the movie. The thriller is in part based on the autobiography of Robert Mazur, a Floridian who worked as an undercover DEA agent. Cranston will portray Mazur, who during the daytime operated as a customs and excise agent, before taking down big name criminal enterprises in his off-time. A Good Films production, »

“One look?!….One Look?!”

After the success of long-gestating sequels Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and Dumb & Dumber To, it looks like we will finally see the return of Magnum-looker Derek Zoolander in the anticipated follow-up to 2001’s cult hit.

This week, Italian site Bad Taste has apparently reported the Mayor of Rime Ignazio Marion has announced that Zoolander 2 is coming to Italy this spring to shoot for 12-weeks at the famous Cinecittà Studios, as well as its surrounding areas.

“Rome returns to the center of the international destinations of great cinema,” Ignazio said.

The Mayor also met with star Ben Stiller, who is reprising his role as the male supermodel with a heat of gold but a brain like a melon, with Justin Theroux (Iron Man 2) co-writing and directing.

The sequel looks set to reunite Stiller with original stars Owen Wilson as Hansel, Will Ferrell as Mugatu »

Zoolander 2 confirmed, shooting this spring

9 February 2015 10:35 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ben Stiller will be returning as Derek Zoolander, as it's confirmed that Zoolander 2 is heading to Italy...

After years of speculation as to whether it would or wouldn't happen, it finally is. Er, Zoolander 2 that is, which Ben Stiller will be shooting this coming spring.

The news was broken by Stiller and the Mayor of Rome. For the Italian city will be playing host to Derek Zoolander during its 12 week production, as the movie heads to Europe. If all concerned fancy a stop off in Halesowen too, there's a half decent coffee shop in the Cornbow Centre we can recommend.

Will Ferrell, Owen Wilson, Christine Taylor and Penelope Cruz are all expected in the cast. Justin Theroux, meanwhile, has co-written the screenplay with Stiller. It's not been announced whether Stiller will be returning to the director's chair too, as some reports suggest that Justin Theroux will be taking the job on. »
