Watch James Franco in Malick-esque ‘The Color of Time’ trailer

12 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

James Franco stars as Pulitzer Prize winning poet C.K. Williams in The Color of Time. The film centers on the struggles of the real-life writer, from childhood throughout his career. The film has eleven credited directors, so the film could be a beautiful experiment or a wonderful mess. There is also a very Terrance Malick-esque quality to the trailer, which should be interesting to see how that style carries over into the full, given that no one can do Malick besides Malick (and even then it’s a little iffy sometimes). The Color of Time also stars Mila Kunis, Jessica Chastain, Zach Braff, Henry Hopper, and the always-fantastic Bruce Campbell of Evil Dead fame.

CaCee Cobb Posts Super Sweet Pic With Donald Faison & Son Rocco

26 November 2014 3:45 PM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Like father, like son! CaCee Cobb shared the sweetest snap via Instagram of hubby Donald Faison hugging their adorable baby boy Rocco. Little Rocco looks just like his famous dad in the shot, grabbing on to the "Scrubs" actor's head with a giant grin on his little face. The cute couple tied the knot in Zach Braff's backyard in 2012, and announced that they were expecting their first child together shortly after. Even before the pair said "I do," CaCee was eager to start a family. "Right when we decided we wanted to get married, we realized we wanted to have a baby. We were very lucky, though -- we did it all in one weekend," the actor told Us Weekly last year. "We tried so hard before we got married and it didn't work.""Well, before you say we tried so hard, there are a lot of people out there that tried really hard, »

GQ Names Zach Braff, Johnny Depp, Shia Labeouf, & Woody Allen Among The Least Influential People Of 2014

24 November 2014 1:48 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

December is just a week away, and soon we will be flooded with lists declaring The Best and Most Important of everything pop-culture related in 2014. But what about the people who were in the spotlight, but did little of value to earn their space in the press, and hardly did anything to change the game in their respective fields? Well, GQ has crunched the numbers and come up with their 30 Least Influential People Of 2014. And some high profile and highly paid actors and directors made the cut. Ranking at number five is Zach Braff, who crowd-sourced "Wish I Was Here" and, as the magazine says, "made yet another mope-piece that ached to be taken seriously as art. He should've just filmed himself rubbing that money on his armpits." Ouch. From his red carpet hijinks for Lars von Trier's "Nymphomanaic" to pulling out his tooth and fighting with his castmates on "Fury, »

Quiz: Can you guess the voice of these animated characters?

24 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

When it comes to voicing animated and stop-motion characters, who better to turn to than Hollywood’s A-list? With distinctive voices and acting styles a popular celeb can lend their vocal chops to give life to an animated being. Animators can use visual cues from the actors behind-the-scenes to add some personality, movement and facial expressions into their animated forms and let their on-screen personalities shine through. That CGI flying monkey in Oz: The Great and Powerful? That’s definitely a monkey version of Zach Braff.  And there's no separating Robin Williams from the iconic Genie in Aladdin.

This week’s animated offering The Penguins of Madagascar features the voice talents of non-other than Benedict Cumberbatch.  With a voice that sounds like a “jaguar in a cello” he’s just the latest celeb to lend his voice to an animated character.  Joining him in his Arctic adventure is John Malkovich »

Watch James Franco and Mila Kunis' Steamy Kiss in 'The Color of Time' Trailer

24 November 2014 4:45 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

James Franco and Mila Kunis play a couple in a rut in the trailer for their upcoming film The Color of Time. In the film, Franco portrays real-life writer C.K. Williams, who won the Pulitzer prize for poetry in 2000. The trailer shows the film jumping in chronology, as C.K. is seen both as an adult and while interacting as a child with his mother. "You're gonna get a whoopin' so hard," someone ominously informs Franco's character in one scene.

Watch: James Franco Feels 'The Color Of Time' In New Trailer With Mila Kunis

21 November 2014 9:54 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The James Franco-produced “The Color of Time” (formerly titled “Tar” when it premiered at last year’s Rome Film Festival) examines the life and work of Pulitzer Prize winning poet C.K. Williams. The film takes an unusual approach to the material, in that an ensemble of 12 directors (all are New York University students) collaborated with the main cast. But this is not an anthology film —the directors worked together to create a single narrative.  The story follows a young Williams, living with his wife and young son and grappling with both the dark and idyllic memories of his past as he prepares for a reading in New York City. Judging from the U.S. trailer, the directors decided to really go for the Terence Malick look. But unfortunately, the all-star cast including Franco (as Williams), Mila Kunis, Jessica Chastain, Zach Braff, Bruce Campbell and Henry Hopper can't make the dreamy material work. »

Zach Braff May Direct Dustin Hoffman in Remake of 'Going in Style'

20 November 2014 12:53 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It took Zach Braff 10 years to get back behind the camera for his directorial effort Wish I Was Here, but it sounds like he's not waiting that long to do it again. Variety has word that the "Scrubs" star who has starred in both of his own films is looking to be at the helm of Going in Style, a remake of the 1979 comedy of the same name starring George Burns. The project is set up at New Line, and Braff would replace Ted Melfi (St. Vincent) as director on the project if a deal can be solidified. Since I wasn't super impressed with his sophomore film, I'm not as excited for a new Braff film, but the cast certainly grabs my attention. Read on! Dustin Hoffman is currently in talks to join the already cast Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine in the film about three retired men who decide »

Zach Braff Has Entered Talks To Direct Going In Style Remake For New Line

20 November 2014 9:25 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though he turned to crowd-funding website Kickstarter for his previous project, Wish I Was Here, Deadline is reporting the Zach Braff is following a more traditional route to his next film, after the actor-cum-director has entered talks to helm New Line’s remake of heist caper Going in Style. This follows Theodore Melfi’s decision to exit the project, though we understand that the St. Vincent director will still be onboard for script duties of the upcoming retelling.

Released back in 1979, the original film starred George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg, three geriatrics who become so tired with the mundane nature of living out the rest of their days that they decide to rob a bank — because daytime TV really can be a bitch. However, their escapades are soon spoiled by overbearing cops and health problems, but not before the unlikely crew enjoy their share of the limelight.

Dustin Hoffman May Be Going In Style

19 November 2014 4:01 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

New Line's remake of the 1979 George Burns comedy Going In Style already has Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine attached to star. Now the final member of the lead trio may have arrived. Dustin Hoffman is in talks to make up the third piece of the puzzle.The original film starred Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg as bored Brooklyn senior citizens who hatch a plan to rob a bank. They pull off the caper wearing Groucho Marx disguises and then significantly increase their earnings with some casino luck. Their story becomes a media cause célèbre, but ill health and killjoy cops but a dampener on their adventures.Theodore Melfi (St. Vincent) was originally lined up to direct, but has apparently moved on, although we still seem to be talking about his screenplay. Oddly, Variety reports that New Line are looking at Zach Braff (Garden State, Wish I Was Here) as his replacement, »

Zach Braff in Talks to Direct 'Going in Style' Remake

19 November 2014 3:11 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fresh off his second directorial outing Wish I Was Here, Zach Braff is in talks to direct the Going in Style remake for New Line Cinema.

The original 1979 movie Going in Style starred George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg as three retired friends in their 70s, who plan a bank heist to add some excitement to their dull lives.

We reported in September 2013 that Theodore Melfi (St. Vincent) was replacing Don Scardino (The Incredible Burt Wonderstone) at the helm, but now it seems he is no longer directing. Theodore Melfi is still attached as a producer, and he also provided the screenplay.

Donald De Line (Pain & Gain) is producing, with Tony Bill, who produced the original Going in Style, serving as executive producer. No production schedule was given.

After making his directorial debut with 2004's Garden State, Zach Braff's second feature Wish I Was Here hit theaters this summer. »

Zach Braff in Talks to Direct Going In Style Remake

19 November 2014 12:15 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It took a decade for Zach Braff to direct his second feature film after 2004’s Garden State, but it appears that he’s eager to jump back into the director’s chair much more quickly this time around.  Deadline reports that Braff is in talks to take the helm of the Going in Style remake that New Line Cinema has been developing for a few years now, positioning the film as the follow-up to his Kickstarter-funded drama Wish I Was Here, which opened in theaters this summer.  The 1979 caper comedy Going in Style revolved around a trio of elderly friends—played by George Burns, Art Carney, and Lee Strasberg—who decide to rob a bank out of boredom.  More after the jump. Per Deadline, Braff is in negotiations to direct Going in Style as his next film.  The project has had a few different directors attached, first with The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’s Don Scardino, »

The Color Of Time Trailer and Poster: James Franco, Jessica Chastain, Mila Kunis, and More Go through the Life of Poet C.K. Williams

19 November 2014 11:18 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Starz Digital Media has released The Color of Time trailer and poster.  We last reported on this film over two years ago, and at the time it looked like it was an adaptation of the poetry of Pulitzer Prize-winner C.K. Williams, but as this new trailer and synopsis explain, it's really more of a biopic.  The plot has Williams (James Franco) preparing for a reading in New York City, but he's haunted by memories from his past.  The Color of Time has the hook of being handled by 12 directors, and the cast also includes Mila KunisJessica Chastain, Zach Braff, Henry Hopper, and Bruce Campbell.  However, looking at this trailer, it seems like the ensemble of directors really wanted to make The Tree of Life minus dinosaurs. Hit the jump to check out The Color of Time trailer and poster.  The film will be available for early digital download on December 2nd, »
