‘Fantastic Beasts’ Trailer: Eddie Redmayne Fights Against Magical Creatures & No-Majs

23 July 2016 2:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Director David Yates made his Hall H debut at Comic-Con to unleash the latest trailer of the highly-anticipated film, “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.” Joined by Eddie Redmayne, who passed out wands to the audience, the Oscar-winner led the room in a Luminous Maxima spell before they revealed the sneak peek.

The newest preview of the Jk Rowling-written adventure sees Redmayne as the magizoologist Newt Scamander, who travels to New York in 1926 for a meeting with the Magical Congress of the United States of America with a magical briefcase containing a host of dangerous creatures. After the beasts accidentally escape, it’s up to Scamander to try to get them back before the wizarding authorities catch him, and before Wizard/No-Maj relations become any more strained as a result of a potential catastrophe. Newt soon teams up with a couple of witches and a no-maj who will »

‘The Girlfriend Experience’: Why Riley Keough Sizzles (Emmy Video)

11 July 2016 1:04 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

You know it when you see it. A star on the rise.

Casting “Magic Mike,” Steven Soderbergh saw an audition tape for then-22-year-old model-actress Riley Keough—whose genetic blessings from grandfather Elvis Presley and mother Lisa Marie are self evident—and hired her sight unseen for a small role as stripper Nora, where she learned all about “underwear and spray tans,” she told me in our video interview. She first met Soderbergh at a “Magic Mike” staff dinner with her co-stars Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and her romantic interest Alex Pettyfer, to whom she was briefly engaged.

Five years later, “The Girlfriend Experience” producer Soderbergh cast Keough to carry the 13-part Starz half-hour series “The Girlfriend Experience,” now adapted from his 2009 film by indie writer-directors, Amy Seimetz (“Sun Don’t Shine”) and Lodge Kerrigan (“Claire Dolan”). Reviews and Emmy buzz are strong.

Steven Soderbergh to Produce Movie on Panama Papers Leak

7 July 2016 6:04 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Steven Soderbergh has signed on to produce a movie based around the leak of the Panama Papers, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Panama Papers encompass more than 11 million leaked documents from the Panamanian company Mossack Fonseca. The disclosure of the materials by an anonymous whistleblower revealed Mossack Fonseca's extensive efforts to help the world's super-rich conceal wealth and evade taxes. News outlets published the first stories on the documents in April.

The story of the massive leak will be chronicled in The Secrecy World, a forthcoming book by Jake Bernstein. »

Steven Soderbergh Signs On For Panama Papers Feature

7 July 2016 5:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Steven Soderbergh is currently in production on his highly anticipated return to feature filmmaker, “Logan Lucky,” and it seems like he’s catching quite the cinematic bug on set. After famously retiring from moviemaking and stepping into television work, the director is quickly lining up new big screen projects, the latest of which is an untitled drama centered around the Panama Papers.

The project will be based on Jake Bernstein’s yet-to-be-published book “The Secrecy of the World.” Bernstein was one of the investigative reporters who helped expose the Panama Papers, millions of documents that detailed how the world’s elite used a Panamanian law firm to escape financial scrutiny.

Soderbergh is set to produce the feature, though reports say he’s already eyeing the director’s chair. The auteur will team up with his longtime screenwriter Scott Z. Burns for the movie. »

Steven Soderbergh's Comeback

7 July 2016 5:45 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Steven Soderbergh is retired no more. The director, who had previously announced Side Effects (2013) as his last feature film, is making two movies in the next year or so. It was just announced that he will be directing a feature film about The Panama Papers, the leaked documents which revealed how many of the super-rich employ legal, but dodgy accounting systems to avoid taxation. Even some luminaries in the film world (Emma Watson, Pedro Almodovar and the estate of Stanley Kubrick) were named in that scandal. The film will be based on Secrecy World, a to-be-published book by the Pulitzer prize-winning reporter Jake Bernstein. The adaptation will be written by frequent Soderbergh collaborator Scott Z Burns (Contagion, Side Effects, The Informant!).

Sounds like another Contagion, no? Taking a global incident and examining it from different points of view. Before that he will make Ocean’s Fourteen -- well not exactly, »

Panama Papers Movie in the Works From Steven Soderbergh

6 July 2016 5:38 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Steve Soderbergh is producing and may direct an untitled movie about the Panama Papers along with Lawrence Grey’s Grey Matter Productions and Anonymous Content.

Grey, Michael Sugar, Scott Burns and Soderbergh are producing, with Burns writing the script. Sugar was one of the four producers who received a best picture Academy Award for “Spotlight” in February.

The project is based on the upcoming book “The Secrecy World” by Jake Bernstein, senior reporter on the team that broke the Panama Papers story. The book will be published by Henry Holt in fall of 2017.

UTA came on board in April to begin selling the film rights to “Secrecy World,” an account of the leak of 11 million documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca about dubious global financial transactions. The Panama Papers were leaked by International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and provided details of how the wealthy and powerful used the law firm to escape scrutiny. »

4 Pieces of Must-Know Casting News

27 June 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Rev up those engines—Steven Soderbergh wants to take you to the Nascar races. There are no ponies to be had in his next film, “Logan Lucky,” that’s set to begin shooting in Atlanta in August. The cast for the project, put together by Carmen Cuba, is already an oddball mix of familiar faces. Those already attached to the project include Hilary Swank, Adam Driver, Daniel Craig, Channing Tatum, Seth MacFarlane, Katherine Heigl, and Riley Keough. The drama will follow a desolate West Virginia father, who’s down to his last dollar. In an attempt to help his family he teams up with a group of thieves to steal $14 million from a motor speedway. The sparse additional casting will continue as the project moves toward production at the end of summer. The streaming universe is bulking up this week with multiple projects for the big three—Netflix, Hulu, and »

'Boys Don't Cry' Director Kimberly Peirce on Orlando Massacre: "Every Killing of a Queer Person Matters"

21 June 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Filmmaker Kimberly Peirce made her directorial debut with the Hilary Swank-starrer Boys Don't Cry, released by Fox Searchlight in 1999. The film, inspired by real-life events, followed the story of trans man Brandon Teena, who was gunned down in a hate crime in Nebraska on Dec. 31, 1993. When 49 people were killed in the Pulse nightclub mass shooting on June 12, the result of a hate crime at the hands of Omar Mateen, Peirce was understandably devastated upon hearing of another attack on the Lbgt community, one that now ranks as the worst shooting in U.S. history.

‘Denial’ Trailer: Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson & Timothy Spall Have Their Day in Court in Holocaust-Denial Drama

15 June 2016 10:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Anyone who’s seen Errol Morris’ documentary “Mr. Death: The Rise and Fall of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr.” knows that the bizarre phenomenon of Holocaust denial can make for a strange, compelling movie. Mick Jackson’s “Denial” looks to be considerably more straightforward, but the prestige-picture-in-waiting does have the benefit of a standout cast: Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson and Timothy Spall headline the drama arriving this fall. The first trailer is available now.

An adaptation of Deborah E. Lipstadt’s book “History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier,” the film stars Weisz as the author herself, who was accused of libel by David Irving (Spall) for calling out his views on the Holocaust; what follows is a legal battle in the English court system, where the burden of proof is on Lipstadt rather than Irving.

Hilary Swank was previously attached to star before Weisz stepped in. Bleecker Street will release “Denial” on September 30.

10 June 2016 9:17 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Meanwhile, Steven Soderbergh is expanding his cast for his first feature since Side Effects, Logan Lucky.

Hilary Swank And Katherine Waterston Board Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky

9 June 2016 2:46 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Steven Soderbergh does love his heist movies. After delivering Warner Bros. a corking heist trilogy, packed with A-list talent in the shape of Ocean’s Eleven, Twelve and Thirteen, he’s at it again. Logan Lucky is his next heist-related drama that’s now bolstered its cast with Oscar-winner Hilary Swank and Alien: Covenant‘s Katherine Waterston.

Unlike the Vegas charms of Ocean’s, Logan Lucky is a real-life drama based in the world of Nascar, and is set to follow the tale of two brothers who stage a near-impossible heist to take place during a race. The news hails from Deadline, who sadly don’t offer any additional details on who either of the actresses will play. Let’s hope they get to sink their teeth into something a little meatier than romantic interests though. Perhaps they’re a couple of mechanics? Fingers crossed.

As for who’ll be »
