Watch: Trailer for 'Scandal' Star Tony Goldwyn's New Legal Drama 'The Divide'

1 hour ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Tony Goldwyn -- aka Potus from "Scandal" -- has a new show in the works now that the most recent season of the guilty-pleasure series starring Kerry Washington has wrapped. But he won't be acting. He's writing and producing.  The new project is called "The Divide," and Goldwyn collaborated with Richard Lagravenese ("Behind the Candelabra"). It centers on an Innocence Initiative caseworker (Marin Ireland of "Homeland") who's fighting to halt the nearing execution of a Death Row inmate (Chris Bauer), wrongly accused of the murder of a family. Goldwyn has focused on the Innocence Project for years now; he directed 2010's "Conviction," starring Hilary Swank as a woman who puts herself through law school to come to the defense of her imprisoned brother. Here's the trailer for "The Divide": »

4 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Scandal might be done for the season, but this summer, Tony Goldwyn will be back on TV in a different way.

In July, the Goldwyn-produced drama The Divide, which he worked on with Richard Lagravenese (Behind the Candelabra), will make its debut on the rebranded WEtv network, and Entertainment Weekly has your first look at the series.

“It’s absolutely insane, but intoxicating as well,” Goldwyn told EW back in late November of juggling writing and producing with his Scandal duties. “It’s incredibly busy doing both, but so incredibly creatively inspiring.”

The drama centers on an Innocence Initiative caseworker (Marin Ireland, »

Cannes: Looking Past the Hype and Hate (Analysis)

17 April 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Inherent Vice.” Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups.” Tim Burton’s “Big Eyes.” Hou Hsiao Hsien’s “The Assassin.” Clint Eastwood’s “Jersey Boys.” Woody Allen’s “Magic in the Moonlight.” Doug Liman’s “Edge of Tomorrow.” Stephen Frear’s untitled Lance Armstrong biopic. Thomas Vinterberg’s “Far From the Madding Crowd.” Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s “Birdman.”

The list of films and filmmakers once rumored to be hot prospects for the Cannes Film Festival, only to be go unmentioned during this morning’s official selection announcement, is, as usual, a long and tantalizing one — so tantalizing, in fact, that some festgoers may find themselves surveying the actual lineup today with a mild sense of deflation, even disappointment. I’ll be the first to admit that those of us fortunate enough to attend film festivals on a regular basis can too often lapse into a posture of whiny, »

17 April 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

The U.S. will be represented by two films in the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or competition: Actor Tommy Lee Jones—who co-wrote the screenplay and directs fest select “The Homesman”—will also be acting alongside Meryl Streep, Hilary Swank, Hailee Steinfeld (“True Grit”), Miranda Otto (“Rake”), and William Fichtner (“The Dark Knight”) in this year’s competition. Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher,” featuring a starry cast that includes Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo, also made the Cannes competition cut.  The full lineup was announced by Thierry Frémaux in Paris this morning; it’s his seventh year as the festival’s general delegate. Canadian filmmaker David Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars,” starring Robert Pattinson—also in another Cannes select with Guy Pearce titled “The Rover”—is also in competition, as is fellow Canadian Atom Egoyan’s thriller “The Captive,” starring Ryan Reynolds and Rosario Dawson. »

Croisette regulars veterans Jean Luc Godard, Ken Loach and Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne will compete alongside Competition first-timers Alice Rohrwacher, Xavier Dolan and Damian Szifron at the Cannes Film Festival next month.

Artistic director Thierry Fremaux announced the Official Selection of the 67th edition on Thursday (17) at a packed press conference at the Normandie Cinema on the Champs Elysées in Paris.

“Anyone who makes a film of more than one hour in duration, has the right to submit a film to Cannes… this year we received some 1,800 films in total – all of which were screened,” said Fremaux.

He announced 49 titles in total from 28 countries and hinted a further two or three could be announced ahead of Cannes. [Click here for the full list.]

Fremaux, who tied up the line-up at 1am local time ahead of the announcement, said films were arriving later and later for consideration due to digitisation of filmmaking.

“It used to be that January was late,” he said. “Now »

Hilary Swank and Tommy Lee Jones in The Homesman

At last the carefully manipulated suspense is over: Thierry Fremaux, the Cannes Film Festival’s director, today launched the 67th edition at a Parisian media gathering at the Ugc cinema on the Champs Elysées – and unveiled a host of familiar and anticipated names from previous editions as well as a smattering of new contenders and pretenders to the ultimate prize: the Palme d'Or.

They include the likes of the UK’s Ken Loach and Mike Leigh, Canada’s David Cronenberg, Atom Egoyan and wunderkind Xavier Dolan, the Belgian Dardenne Brothers and France’s Olivier Assayas, Bertrand Bonello and Michel Hazanavicius as well as that essential New Wave icon Jean-Luc Godard.

Cannes Unveils 2014 Official Selection Lineup

17 April 2014 2:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tommy Lee Jones, Bennett Miller, David Cronenberg and Atom Egoyan will duke it out with Jean-Luc Godard, Mike Leigh, Ken Loach, Michel Hazanavicius and the Dardenne brothers for the Palme d’Or at the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup this morning in Paris by fest topper Thierry Fremaux.

The wide-ranging competition slate is typically heavy on French filmmakers, with Olivier Assayas’ international co-production “Clouds of Sils Maria” and Bertrand Bonello’s fashion-designer biopic “Saint Laurent” joining Hazanavicius’ “The Search” and Godard’s 3D experiment “Goodbye to Language.” Fremaux noted that Godard, famously a no-show at the 2010 Cannes premiere of his “Film socialisme,” had “promised he’ll be there — which doesn’t mean he will!”

One of the more intriguing developments of this year’s competition is the unusual dominance of Canadian auteurs. »

Channing Tatum, Ryan Gosling, Kristen Stewart are carpet-bound as Cannes 2014 lineup is revealed

17 April 2014 2:01 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cannes Film Festival director Thierry Fremaux sent out mixed messages in his -- very long, as usual -- preamble to announcing this year's Cannes Film Festival lineup. First he mentioned a focus on newer, fresher filmmakers, but mentioned elsewhere that "Cannes is an event for the regulars." Predictably enough, the latter statement turned out to be closer to the truth: of the 18 films competing for this year's Palme d'Or, 13 have been to the dance before. (And of the Competition virgins, Bennett Miller and Xavier Dolan are hardly unknowns.) Early on, meanwhile, Fremaux made the initially bold statement that 15 women were in the Official Selection, promising a bounty of female directors for jury president Jane Campion to consider. It turned out to be a slight manipulation of the truth: several of those women are involved in portmanteau films, while only two of them -- Naomi Kawase and surprise inclusion Alice Rohrwacher »

2014 Cannes Film Festival Predictions: Main Competition, Un Certain Regard & Special Screenings

16 April 2014 5:35 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

With only hours ago before the official selection for the Main Competition is announced, we’ve narrowed our final predictions to the following titles that we’re crystal-balling as the films that will be included on Thierry Fremaux’s highly anticipated list. Despite an obvious drought of Asian auteurs (we’re thinking the rumored frontrunner Takashi Miike won’t be included in tomorrow’s list) who’s to say there won’t be some definite surprises, like Jia Zhang-ke’s A Touch of Sin last year.

Several hopefuls appear not to be ready in time, including Malick, Hsou-hsien, Cristi Puiu, and Innarritu, to name a few. But there does appear to be a high quantity of exciting titles from some of cinema’s leading auteurs. We’re still a bit tentative about whether Xavier Dolan’s latest, Mommy, will get a main competition slot—instead, we’re predicting another surprise, »

Cannes Film Festival: Early Pics Include Tommy Lee Jones’ ‘The Homesman,’ ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’

16 April 2014 11:44 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On the eve of the Cannes Film Festival’s official selection announcement, a major competition prospect has emerged in Tommy Lee Jones’ frontier drama “The Homesman,” starring Jones and Hilary Swank as a claim jumper and a pioneer woman undertaking a perilous journey across the Midwest. Also featuring Meryl Streep, William Fichtner and Hailee Steinfeld, the film marks Jones’ first directorial outing since his 2005 Western, “The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada,” which walked away from the Croisette with two major prizes. Like “Three Burials,” “The Homesman” was financed and produced by Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp, which is also handling international sales on the film.

Also set to make its world premiere in Cannes is 20th Century Fox/DreamWorks Animation’s “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” which will receive an out-of-competition screening, in keeping with the festival’s tradition of bowing a U.S. studio blockbuster the first weekend. The sequel, »

Tommy Lee Jones Western ‘The Homesman’ Gets an International Trailer

15 April 2014 7:41 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Tommy Lee Jones has had a long and successful career as an actor, but on occasion he likes to take a seat in the director’s chair as well. Although, given that he’s played leading roles in his three feature films so far, he probably doesn’t get to do a lot of sitting down.

In the new international trailer for The Homesman, Jones’ upcoming Western, he starts out sitting down in quite a precarious situation. His character, George Briggs, is a claim jumper who has been left to hang as soon as his horse gets bored or skittish, and who is discovered by pioneer woman Mary Bee Cuddy (Hilary Swank). Mary offers to set him free, on the condition that he performs a certain service for her in return.

It’s just as well that she wrangles a ...
