Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

15 October 2014 2:57 AM, PDT | Sky Movies | See recent Sky Movies news »

Will Ferrell fires on all comedy cylinders as the Nascar champion whose career suffers a blow-out with the arrival of Sacha Baron Cohen's gay French Formula One driver. While built on a solid comedy chassis, this goes into overdrive when the cast's improvisational skills go pedal to the metal. The overbearing Ferrell is mercifully reined in and the script is a non-pc delight. »

Penelope Cruz Named Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive

13 October 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This year, the title of Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive has been given to Penelope Cruz.  The actress of the upcoming Spanish-language film Ma Ma and Grimsby with Sacha Baron Cohen is the 10th honoree of the annual title. "I've played a lot of tricks on myself," she says in the magazine's cover story. "I've made it hard for me sometimes, especially in my teens and 20s. I had an attraction to drama. Most of us have that, especially if you are an artist — you feel like you are tempted to explore the darkness. I could not be less

13 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Esquire's 2014 "Sexiest Woman Alive" is (drumroll, please) ... Penelope Cruz!The 40-year-old actress proves she's worthy of the title, showing off her enviable body in a plunging one-piece swimsuit in a series of sexy snapshots for the mag. Penelope has kept a low profile in recent years, after starring in films including "Vicky Cristina Barcelona," "Vanilla Sky" and "Pirates of the Caribbean."She declined to comment to the magazine about her actor-husband, Javier Bardem, as well as their two children: Leo, 3, and Luna, 1. "That is for us," she said of her family. Cruz did, however, offer a little insight into how her career has changed over the years. "I’ve made it hard for me sometimes, especially in my teens and twenties," she admitted. "I had an attraction to drama. Most of us have that, especially if you are an artist -- you feel like you are tempted to explore the darkness. »

Julia Louis-Dreyfus to receive Charlie Chaplin Award, should be in more movies

7 October 2014 6:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Why isn't Julia Louis-Dreyfus in more movies? Yes, there are likely personal and professional reasons that keep one of the funniest ladies in Hollywood away from the big screen, but allow us to throw up our arms and demand more. Louis-Dreyfus has dominated television since the '80s (revisit her "Saturday Night Live" work and prepare to go bananas), "Seinfeld" making her a household name and providing a curse that only she could break. The success of "The New Adventures of Old Christine" and "Veep" rests entirely on Louis-Dreyfus shoulders. Maybe the weekly format provides a comfort, maybe Hollywood just isn't writing roles for funny women (that's not really a maybe, but let's not digress), but we're tired of the small screen having all the Julia Louis-Dreyfus fun. Her latest accolade only rubs it in. The British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles announced Monday that Louis-Dreyfus would »

Isla Fisher Is Pregnant! Actress and Sacha Baron Cohen Expecting Third Child: Reports

1 October 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Isla Fisher is pregnant! The Great Gatsby star and hubby Sacha Baron Cohen are reportedly expecting their third child together, according to Us Weekly, who was first to report the baby news, and People. (Isla's rep did not respond to E! News' request for comment.) Baby Cohen will join the couple's daughters: Olive, 6, and Elula, who turns 5 this month. And for 38-year-old Isla, family is everything. "Even when you don't take your kids with you, your mind and heart are busy with them," she told Gotham magazine last summer. She has no regrets, either, about making motherhood her primary focus after her daughters were born. "I took three years off," she said. »

25 September 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If this film thing doesn't work out, Johnny Depp has a sure future as musical sideman. Depp, 51, showcased his considerable guitar skills recently when he stepped out of the wings during a Ryan Adams show at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire to join the rocker on two songs, locking up a pretty mean guitar solo on his tune "Kim" and a cover of Danzig's "Mother."

Adams thanked the actor for his contribution, calling him "J-Dizzle," according to a concertgoer. »

Now You See Me 2, Dirty Grandpa Set For Release

10 September 2014 4:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lionsgate just added two high-profile projects to its upcoming schedule – magician caper sequel Now You See Me 2 and raunchy roadtrip comedy Dirty Grandpa.

The former has been set for June 10th, 2016. It’s a follow-up to last year’s surprise smash hit Now You See Me, which opened to an unexpectedly mighty $29.4 million domestic debut and went on to gross a stellar $351.7 million worldwide.

The sequel is expected to continue the story of The Four Horsemen (Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco), skilled magicians who perform heists, now that the enigmatic Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo) has inducted them into a secret society of magicians known as the Eye. Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) is sitting in the director’s chair, taking over from Louis Leterrier.

Now You See Me 2, as it’s currently known, is only currently facing down video game adaptation Uncharted on that date. »

Robert De Niro and Zac Efron Are Hitting Spring Break Together in a Buddy Road Trip Comedy

5 September 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

We can never have too many wacky road trip comedies, but they need to involve particular formula to make things extra off-the-wall. Here’s one version: take a no-nonsense youngster — extra points if he’s a millennial completely dependent on technology who doesn’t appreciate how good things are nowadays (a mile uphill in the snow to school, etc., etc.) — and pair him with a zany sex-obsessed octogenarian who just wants to party. And party hard! Where we going? Vegas? Why? Who cares? Such an adventure is set to star Zac Efron and Robert De Niro with a script by John Phillips and direction by frequent Sacha Baron Cohen collaborator Dan Mazer (he’s a writer on Borat, Bruno and The Dictator). The project is going through a bit of an identity crisis at this point — it’s either called Dirty Grandpa or Driving Dick Kelly, depending on which outlet you consult. But »

Robert De Niro to team with Zac Efron for Dirty Grandpa

5 September 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Two actors from very different generations are set to team up for an upcoming comedy. Oscar winner Robert De Niro (Meet The Parents, Goodfellas) and Hollywood heart-throb Zac Efron (Bad Neighbours, The Paperboy) being eyed to star in Dirty Grandpa, the latest film from Dan Mazer, director of I Give It A Year and co-writer of Borat, Ali G and Bruno with Sacha Baron Cohen.

Early talks have already started to take place, but if all goes well the film will see Efron will play a young man who is tricked into driving his grandfather (De Niro), a perverted former Army general who thinks his grandson is about to marry the wrong woman, to Florida for spring break. Think Spring Breakers and 22 Jump Street with a dash of The Guilt Trip and Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

If all goes well with the talks, Universal are looking at getting the film »

Zac Efron And Robert De Niro Team For Dirty Grandpa

5 September 2014 5:35 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Charlie St. Cloud star Zac Efron already proved he could do a mean Robert De Niro impression in this summer’s comedy smash hit Neighbors, and now we’ve learned that the actor will be joining forces with the acting legend himself for an upcoming comedy titled Dirty Grandpa.

Described as a road trip comedy, Dirty Grandpa will find Efron playing a young man tricked into driving his dirty-minded grandfather (De Niro), a former Army general, to Florida for spring break. Their trip is complicated by the grandfather’s belief that his grandson is on the cusp of marrying the wrong woman.

Dan Mazer, known for collaborating with Sacha Baron Cohen and helming the Britcom I Give It A Year, is set to direct the comedy, which was once housed at Universal but is now being packaged by Qed.

Robert De Niro Is A Dirty Grandpa

5 September 2014 1:41 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Johnny Knoxville was a Bad Grandpa for Jackass last year, but Robert De Niro is about to go one worse. He's signed on to be the Dirty Grandpa in a "raunchy" new Universal comedy. Zac Efron will be his straight man.The story finds Efron as a straight-laced guy about to get married, but strong-armed, just before his wedding, into driving his foul-mouthed ex-army grandpa to Florida for spring break. Presumably Grandpa vicariously enjoys the beach-based antics Harmony Korine showed us in Spring Breakers (minus the killing)... the filthy swine! But we'd imagine there'll be some mellowing of Grandpa and some loosening up for Efron before the film is over.Dan Mazer, director of I Give It A Year and writer/producer of copious Sacha Baron Cohen projects, is scripting the film and will also man the cameras. Barry Josephson, who worked with De Niro previously on Hide And Seek, »
