Ed Helms-Owen Wilson Comedy ‘Bastards’ Changes Title to ‘Father Figures’

15 September 2017 10:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. has decided to lose “Bastards” as the title for its Ed Helms-Owen Wilson road comedy, opting instead for “Father Figures.”

The studio is keeping the Dec. 22 release date for the Alcon Entertainment production.

J.K. Simmons and former pro football player Terry Bradshaw, who is playing himself, are potential father figures to Wilson and Helms’ characters — who are brothers whose eccentric mother raised them to believe their father died when they were young. When they discover this to be a lie, they set out to find their real father.

The brothers’ mother Helen Baxter (portrayed Glenn Close) admits at her wedding that she stretched the truth about their father dying when they were young. “I’m not sure who your father was,” she says in the first trailer for the film.

Ving Rhames, June Squibb, Katt Williams, and model Jessica Gomes — who plays the love interest of Wilson’s character — also star.

9 September 2017 3:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

David Lowery’s “A Ghost Story” was the big winner of the 43rd Deauville American Film Festival, scooping three awards, including the Revelation prize, the Critics prize and the Special Jury Special (shared with Joshua Z. Weinstein’s “Menashe”).

Chloé Zhao’s “The Rider,” which world premiered at Cannes’s Directors Fortnight and was acquired by Sony Pictures Classics, won the Grand Prize from a jury presided by Michel Hazanavicius (“The Artist,””Redoutable”).

Hazanavicius praised “The Rider” for his “humanity and poetry” as well as its “soft political reflection.”

When picking up his award from the Revelation jury president Emmanuelle Bercot, the French actress-turned-director, Lowery paid tribute to his wife and said their relationship served as inspiration for the film.

A Ghost Story” is supernatural drama reuniting Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara. The pair starred in Lowery’s last film, “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints,” which had also competed at Deauville. “A Ghost Story »

Owen Wilson saying “wow” except it’s backwards now

7 September 2017 11:35 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Owen Wilson is a versatile actor—watch The Minus Man!—but that’s not to say he doesn’t have a few actorly wells to which he returns. We’ve seen time and again the many, many times he’s uttered his catchphrase—“wow”—and we’ve even seen it dubbed over other sounds, such as that of a lightsaber. Now, perhaps inspired by…

‘Starsky & Hutch’Reboot is Picked up by Amazon

6 September 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Remember “Starsky & Hutch”, that highly entertaining television buddy cop show from the 70s that lasted for 93 episodes? It entertained many of us for endless weeknights from 1974 to 1979 on ABC and starred David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser, as well as one really hot car, namely a two-door Ford Gran Torino. The mismatched cop duo was resurrected in the 2004 theatrical release of the same name directed by Todd Phillips with Ben Stiller playing David Starsky, the high-strung workaholic. Owen Wilson played Ken “Hutch” Hutchinson, who’s a laid-back ladies’ man. The two were detectives patrolling the Bay

“It’s my first day of school and I’m really excited and nervous just like you all might be,” Tremblay said in the video. “I wanted to take this opportunity to pledge to choose kind this year and encourage all of you to do the same.”

Venice: David Linde on How ‘Human Flow’ Encapsulates Participant Media’s New Course (Exclusive)

1 September 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Venice, Italy — Participant Media’s David Linde and Diane Weyermann made the trek to Venice for the world premiere Friday of Ai Weiwei’s migrant crisis doc “Human Flow,” which they say encapsulates exactly what the Hollywood mini-major is hoping to achieve with entertainment that aims to drive social change.

Ai Weiwei wasn’t trying to make an art movie,” Weyermann said about the ambitious piece shot over more than a year in 23 countries by the Chinese artist.

“He was very clear about that. It’s about reaching people. He really truly believes that this is a major crisis, and there are many people out there who don’t know about it,” said Weyermann, Participant’s executive vice president of documentary films. “He wanted to reach a wide audience, to the extent that a filmmaker can.”

Guardians Of The Galaxy director James Gunn is set to executive produce a brand new Starsky & Hutch TV series. The project is being set-up over at Sony Pictures TV, and is about to be pitched to broadcast, cable and streaming networks, according to Deadline.

It was also turned into a Todd Phillips-directed movie starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson in 2004.

Neal Moritz’s Original Film, which produced the movie, will also work on the potential new series. »

Thirteen years have passed since Hollywood first rebooted “Starsky & Hutch,” delivering a Todd Phillips directed lark starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, that was guilty pleasure fun, and chalked up $170 million worldwide, which isn’t too bad. However, intellectual property can only sit around so long before it needs to be exploited once again, but this time, the mismatched cops are headed back the small screen where they originated.
