21 May 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The deal, struck during the Cannes market this week, will see Broad Green add the film to its 2016 slate.

The agreement was brokered on behalf of the filmmakers by Wme, while Dylan Wiley, president of specialty releasing and Chris Tricarico, evp business affairs handled for Broad Green.

Based on a true story, The Infiltrator is set amidst the lavish excess of the 1980s and tells the story of undercover agent Robert Mazur.

Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston plays Mazur, a customs and excise agent who went undercover as Robert Musella and traded on mob connections to become the confidant to scores of the international underworld, and the bankers who enabled them.

Jason Derulo and Sage the Gemini Duke It Out for Song of Summer (and Jordin Sparks’s Heart)

21 May 2015 2:13 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After kicking her ex Jason Derulo to the curb and stepping her selfie game up, Jordin Sparks has a new man. His (stage) name is Sage the Gemini, and even if you think you don't know him, you most likely do: He had a hit with 2013's club banger "Gas Pedal" (yep, the one about grinding against a wall) and is featured on Flo Rida's "G.D.F.R.," which has been steadily climbing the charts for weeks. Now that his relationship with Sparks is Instagram official, he coincidentally has a new single out called "Good Thing," featuring none other than Nick Jonas (who has apparently replaced Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke as hip-hop's go-to white boy R&B crooner). It's a slow-burning scorcher accompanied by a tropical-themed video, debuted today, perfectly timed for Memorial Day Weekend — better known as the unofficial start of the Song of Summer race. »

Cannes: 9 Big Secrets from the Amy Winehouse Documentary

16 May 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Amy,” the upcoming documentary about Amy Winehouse, is an unflinching portrait of how drug and alcohol addiction combined with a series of enablers led to the death of the famous soul singer at the age of 27. The film, directed by Asif Kapadia, was several years in the making after Winehouse’s 2011 death. It relies on audio interviews with Winehouse’s closest friends and family — including her mother, her father, her managers and her bodyguard — juxtaposed with personal never-before-seen videos of Winehouse.

The movie premieres on Saturday night at the Cannes Film Festival, where it’s sure to be an emotional tearjerker. A24 will release “Amy” in the United States in July. Here are nine of the project’s biggest revelations.

1. Winehouse suffered from depression and anorexia from a young age.

The film argues that Winehouse’s adolescence was influenced by her parents’ divorce: her father, Mitchell, left her mom, Janis, »

See Julianne and Derek Hough Gross Each Other Out on 'Lip Sync Battle'

15 May 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Dancing With the Stars standouts Derek and Julianne Hough brought their sibling rivalry to the stage on Thursday's installment of Lip Sync Battle, showcasing their choreography chops while making each other deeply uncomfortable.

For the first round, Derek gave a spirited rendition of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' "Can't Hold Us," making host L.L. Cool J. blush with the dancer's liberal seasoning of pelvic thrusts. Julianne in turn scandalized her brother with a sexed-up performance of "All About That Bass," but stacked the deck a bit by bringing out a »

Adams was – for the third time in six years (more info below) – a Best Supporting Actress nominee. This time around, she was shortlisted for her performance in David O. Russell's The Fighter, a generally well-regarded and surprisingly successful (in the U.S.) boxing drama that earned fellow supporting actress Melissa Leo the evening's Oscar. Another The Fighter actor, Christian Bale (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight), took home the Best Supporting Actor Oscar statuette. In fact, the film's only major cast member left without an Oscar nomination in the acting categories was lead Mark Wahlberg (pictured with wife) – though he did »

Cannes: Mark Damon Dishes Over Food, Friends, Films and the Fest

14 May 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mark Damon is in Cannes this year with several films from his shingle Foresight Unlimited. The executive has been in the industry for nearly 50 years, and he helped pioneer the business of overseas sales/production via such companies as Producers Sales Organization. With deadpan humor, he talks about his work in Cannes.

Recommended restaurants

My favorite night in Cannes is my last night there, when I know I’m leaving the next day. So we alternate between two favorite restaurants: L’Armenien, which is on the Croisette but a little farther down; and then just out of town, Le Bistrot du Mougins.

Restaurant insights

The food is incredible. At L’Armenien, they keep bringing out plates of appetizers and main courses; I think there must be about 25 plates of food. At Le Bistrot, I always order boeuf bourguignon; my wife changes her selection. Both are run by husband-and-wife teams. It »

Time Machine: Spielberg and Daughter (with 'Indiana Jones' Actress Capshaw) on Oscars Red Carpet

14 May 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

The Jem and the Holograms Trailer Is Total Drama

12 May 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

BuzzFeed unveiled the trailer for Jem and the Holograms, and it's kind of like Justin Bieber turned into a girl and then joined 'N Sync, and then turned into a combination of Beyoncé and Justin Timberlake (makes sense because Scooter Braun is producing, right?). Drama. Good news: Even though the movie has been updated to include Photoshop, viral marketing, and mainstream sell-out music-biz references, there will still be lots of hair dye and "showtime synergy." The movie comes out October 23. »

Nashville Sam Palladio interview: 'Gunnar has a lot of tearful scenes'

12 May 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

We love Nashville, so we're very excited indeed that the third season is about to hit UK screens! Who doesn't want a bit of country music with added drama in their lives? To celebrate its return, we caught up with Sam Palladio - also known as Gunnar - to find out a bit more about what drama we can expect in the new episodes (lots, it sounds like)...

Are you excited about season three coming over to the UK?

"Very, very excited. I get told off a lot on Twitter by fans that follow me when I'm tweeting about episodes that are going out back in the States. 'Sam, shut up, I'm going to unfollow you if you don't stop spoiling the show!' So I have to occasionally apologise – 'I'm sorry guys, they make me do it!'"

The last time we saw Gunnar, he was trying to persuade Scarlett to stay in Nashville. »

Floria Sigismondi (“The Runaways”) will direct “The Delivery Man,” a drama based on the Joe McGinniss Jr., novel.

“The Delivery Man,” published in 2008, is set against the surreal excess of Las Vegas – and the artificial suburbs, gated communities, and freeways that surround it. The novel centers on a young man who, after attending college in New York, returns to Vegas and is drawn into the lucrative but dangerous world of a teenage call-girl service with his childhood friend, a Salvadoran immigrant.

The novel was first optioned by Thom Mount in 2007. McGinness is the son of the late journalist Joe McGinness.

Sigismondi made her feature directorial debut with “The Runaways,” starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning. »
