It looks like there won't be a fifth season for the Mr. Selfridge TV series. "It's the last series," co-star Amanda Abbington reportedly told What's On TV, "We won't be doing any more, which will be really sad because it's been a part of my life for four years." While ITV hasn't confirmed or denied Abbington's statement, last year series creator Andrew Davies said, "It was always conceived of as four series."
Mr. Selfridge follows flamboyant businessman Harry Selfridge (Jeremy Piven) who decides to build the biggest and finest department store in the world at the "dead end" of Oxford Street in London. In addition to Piven and Abbington, the series stars Frances O'Connor, Katherine Kelly, Gregory Fitoussi, Aisling Loftus, and Trystan Gravelle.

It was confirmed back in March that the Jeremy Piven series would be returning for a fourth run, though the channel has not confirmed the show's long-term future.
"It's the last series," Abbington told What's On TV. "We won't be doing any more, which will be really sad because it's been a part of my life for four years."
Digital Spy reached out to ITV for comment, but the channel would not confirm if Abbington's statement is accurate.
"It was always conceived of as four series - that is, if people liked it enough," he said last year. "People seem to love it, so I think we can do the four series. »
The middle of Spring actually means a new selection of summer blockbusters to look forward to, and with a ton of big-budget films slated to come out within the next few months and beyond, the summer of 2015 looks like one to remember.
From the new Mad Max (which is already on our end-of -year top ten list event though we haven’t yet seen it) to Avengers, Poltergeists, male strippers, talking teddy bears, and a reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, this summer’s trips to the theaters will be jam-packed with sequels and new tales. From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.
Grab your calendar, because Wamg has a rundown of this summer’s films we’re most excited about, so check them out below! »

As Tambay reported last week (Here), Spike Lee is getting ready to make his next film project for Amazon Studios, titled “Chiraq,” which is planned to star Samuel L. Jackson, Common, Kanye West, and Jeremy Piven, and which will deal with the violence that has been plaguing the city. No details, as yet, on what story the film will tell, although it has been described as a “comedy” in some media reports. How a film on this subject could be the basis of a comedy, is beyond me. Needless to say, it has caused something of a firestorm in Chicago, with many people publicity speaking out in the media against the film - especially against the title, which they say further »

"Whatever I do next,” Hollywood heart-throb Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) tells his agent Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) in the trailer for the approaching Entourage movie, “I also want to direct”. Ari is appalled – his toothy young buddy is a mere actor, after all – but Vince is right on trend: more and more Hollywood stars are falling for the lure of the headphones and the video monitor. »

Maybe the second most anticipated movie of the summer is Jurassic World, in part because Hollywood’s newest, biggest star, Chris Pratt, gets the chance to headline yet another blockbuster. But if you watched the trailer some weeks ago, you might’ve noticed how grim, self-serious and decidedly not Andy Dwyer/Starlord-esque charming and funny Pratt’s character was.
The first sigh of relief came this week when the first clip for the film was released this week, which you can watch above. Pratt is playfully flirting with Bryce Dallas-Howard in the scene, hinting at why the two of them never had a second date. Charming and funny? Maybe. Badly written? Arguably. Cliche? Probably. But is it sexist?

Doug Ellin's wildly popular television series about the trials and tribulations of a rising Hollywood superstar makes the jump from HBO to the big screen this summer.
After becoming a superstar with Aquaman and then nearly ruining his career with the Pablo Escobar biopic Medellín, Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) turns his talents to directing in the Entourage movie.
With a $100 million budget at his disposal, Vincent rolls the dice on a gamble that could have disastrous consequences for himself and super-agent Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven).

Jeremy Piven is one heck of an actor. He makes Entourage everything that it is, and then the brashness that he wears like a second skin is nonexistent in the delightful British series Mr. Selfridge, on PBS' Masterpiece Classic. But put aside the three Emmy wins for playing Ari Gold and you're still left with Piven's mixed bag of a reputation. The 49-year-old thesp comes off pretty well and no more cocky than most in interviews, but he's also the guy who raised a lot of eyebrows when he blamed too much sushi for the mercury poisoning that led to him bowing out of Speed-the-Plow on Broadway and, legend has it, he's quite the...er, flirt, with the ladies. (But to be fair, after that whole sushi »
It's been awhile since writer and director Spike Lee had a film that wowed me. Though I'd call myself a fan of Lee's previous efforts such as Do the Right Thing, Malcolm X, School Daze and The 25th Hour, his recent efforts just haven't measured up to his potential. In fact, I would say that the last great film Lee made was Inside Man back in 2006. But his next project sounds promising as The Wrap reports Amazon Studios has picked up Lee's next drama called Chiraq. And right now Lee is hoping to land Samuel L. Jackson, Common, Jeremy Piven and rapper Kanye West for the ensemble cast. So what's the new film about? Well, the title refers to a nickname that his been given to the city of Chicago due to the level of corruption and gun violence that continues to rise in the Windy City. If that's still too subtle for you, »

Amazon, already a major original content source in television thanks to new hit shows like "Transparent", have set their sites towards original filmmaking, and it looks like they've worked up quite a catch. Spike Lee signed a deal with Amazon Studios for them to produce his latest feature, Chiraq. Meanwhile, Kanye West, Common, Samuel L. Jackson and Jeremy Piven are eyed or in talks to star in the ensemble piece. The plot details are scarce for the moment, but as The Wrap notes, "Chiraq" has quickly become a synonymous name for Chicago, thanks to their increased gun violence in recent years. West and Piven are both Chicago natives, while Jackson and Lee have an extended working history together. None of the others, however, are confirmed for their roles. The "Entourage" alum's involvement is the shakiest, as Piven is slated to shoot another season of his series "Mr. Selfridge" soon and »

The Wrap has learned Spike Lee's next movie Chiraq will be for Amazon Studios (which is a big win for its film production arm), and the site is also reporting that Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Piven, Common and Kanye West may star in the project. There aren't any details on the plot for Chiraq, but the movie's title is an unflattering nickname for Chicago (Chicago + Iraq) due to the Windy City's recent increase in gun violence and crime rates. Jeremy Piven and »

Spike Lee will make his next feature-length film for Amazon Studios, the Wrap reports. Titled Chiraq (as in Chicago + Iraq = Chiraq), the movie could reportedly have Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Piven, Kanye West, and Common climbing aboard. Plot details are under wraps at the moment, but given its title, the movie might tackle the Windy City's recent uptick in gun violence. Then again, Da Sweet Blood of Jesus had less to do with Jesus than you'd think, so who knows about the titular truth, Ruth. We'll see. »

Spike Lee has done it all, and has never let the method of delivery stop him from telling a story. From low-budget independent features to star-studded studio pictures to crowdfunded flicks to television documentaries to web shorts to music videos, you name a format, and the director has probably done a project in that arena. And now, the filmmaker is stepping in to the world of streaming with Amazon lining up his next feature film. And it sounds promising. The Wrap reports that Samuel L. Jackson, Kanye West, Jeremy Piven and Common are being courted to star in Lee's "Chiraq." The title is a nickname for the crime-and-murder riddled Chicago (emphasis on that last syllable if you're still not getting it), where West, Common and Piven are all from. Meanwhile, Jackson is a regular collaborator with Lee, and has made five films with the director. Nothing is official just yet, »
