Blake Lively to Star in Female Spy Franchise From James Bond Producers

12 July 2017 2:36 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Blake Lively has landed an extremely pedigreed film franchise, based on a series of spy novels from the same producers of the James Bond films. Lively will star in “The Rhythm Section,” adapted from Mark Burnell’s series about character Stephanie Patrick — a woman scorned by the loss of her family in a mysterious plane crash. “The Handmaid’s Tale” director Reed Morano will direct the first film in the series. Burnell, who serves as executive producer, has four books total. Also Read: Blake Lively, Jason Clarke Drama 'All I See Is You' Picked Up by Open Road »

The Beautiful and the Damned Dirty Apes: A History of The Planet of The Apes

12 July 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Cai Ross

The original Planet of The Apes movies occupied a curious netherworld of critical opinion. With each film, the budget was sawn in half, leading to a successive pattern of diminishing returns that led to a cheapening of its esteem. The spin-off TV show was quickly cancelled, further dulling the lustre and few people even remember the animated series that finally put the Apes to bed until a rude awakening in 2001.

However, for all their child-pleasing capers (the family-friendly G rating was a mandatory stipulation from the studios), the Apes movies deftly juggled important themes and arguments about slavery, free-will, nuclear war, vivisection, racism and oppression, and man’s innate capacity for cruelty. In pure storytelling terms, the circuitous plot links the first five movies (and the new post-Rise cycle) into a pleasing, if relentlessly pessimistic, self-perpetuating full-circle.

Enormous box office successes in their early stages, they spawned »

War For The Planet Of The Apes: exploring its ending, and what might happen next

Ryan Lambie Jul 12, 2017

With a warning for major, major spoilers, we look at War For The Planet Of The Apes, and where the franchise might go next...

Nb: This is your final warning for major Apes franchise spoilers.

See related  Fargo season 3 episode 1 review: The Law Of Vacant Places

Quietly, poignantly, the curtain has fallen on Caesar. The intelligent ape who first led his kind out of captivity in 2011's Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes has done so again in this summer's third chapter. Humanity has, it seems, finally reached its end thanks to a cruel mutation in the virus that already weakened it 15 years earlier. War For The Planet Of The Apes sees Caesar pass into legend; mortally wounded, he dies in the knowledge that his fellow apes are finally safe from harm.

It's a superb performance from Andy Serkis, who's now played the role of Caesar »

Midway Oscars Forecast: A Cluttered Landscape for Indies and Streamers

29 June 2017 4:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It was barely four months ago that director Barry Jenkins stood alongside the baffled cast and crew of “Moonlight” at the Dolby Theatre after defying virtually every known Oscar convention in spectacular, immortal fashion. But just eight short weeks from now, the season will purr right back to life at the Venice and Telluride film festivals. Hollywood will set its sights on that coveted gold statuette for the 90th time, and a new flock of prestige productions will vie for the industry’s top honor.

New York-based distributor A24’s victory brought the best picture tally for independents (and studio dependents) up to nine over the past decade. The only major studio to score in that stretch was Warner Bros. with “Argo,” as the game of Oscar continues to be one of bolstering the financial outlook of artistic risks that conglomerate-tethered companies feel they can’t afford. A glance at the horizon this year reveals a healthy »

How ‘Big Little Lies’ (and Improvised Sex Scenes) Turned Alexander Skarsgård Into an Awards Contender — Career Watch

12 June 2017 10:42 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors. In this edition we tackle Alexander Skarsgård, who’s advancing his career with a canny combo of studio movies, indie films, and premium television.

Bottom Line: You never know where you stand with Skarsgård, who has the complexity of a character actor beneath the leading-man looks that launched a thousand memes. (Reads one: “Research shows that if you’re afraid of spiders, you are more likely to find one in your bedroom… I’m really afraid of Alexander Skarsgård.”)

His muscular swagger and danger is on display in “The Legend of Tarzan,” but his tender attentions to wife Jane (Margot Robbie) were that film’s throbbing heart. And in the hugely popular and topical HBO drama series “Big Little Lies,” he holds his own with an ensemble of powerful women including executive producer Nicole Kidman, who performs an »

The Best One-Season Wonder TV Shows That Never Got Renewed — IndieWire Critics Survey

16 May 2017 9:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the best one-and-done show, a.k.a. a One-Season Wonder? (This refers to shows that only got one season and tragically did not get renewed, as opposed to limited series that never intended to continue.)

Allison Keene (@KeeneTV), Collider

There are so many! But for me the best will always be “Freaks and Geeks.” It’s a show that I watched at an age before I really understood the whole TV renewal/cancellation process, but even then I knew it was unjustly short. The show was such a great blend of smarts, snark, and genuine emotions, in a way that could actually be painful to watch. »

Exclusive: Im Global fully financing and introducing to Cannes buyers.

Two-time Oscar nominee Viggo Mortensen will star in the thriller Unabomb for The Trouble With The Curve director Robert Lorenz.

Im Global is fully financing the project and lining up additional cast for a January 2018 production start.

Freeman and his unconventional team travel the country piecing together a profile of the infamous hooded suspect.

However the closer they get to narrowing down the terrorist’s identity, the more deadly and personal the attacks become. Randy Brown adapted the screenplay from the book Unabomber by Jim Freeman, Terry Turchie and Donald »

Dee Rees Working on a Horror Film About a Lesbian Couple in a Small Town

12 May 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Dee Rees: GoldDerby/YouTube

Dee Rees’ next project will be a horror film exploring domestic life, race, sexuality, and small town America. Originally reported by the New York Times, the Tracking Board and Shadow and Act have confirmed that Rees is collaborating with “Get Out” producer Jason Blum on a horror movie about a black lesbian couple living in a rural town.

According to the Times, the “Pariah” and “Bessie” director informally pitched Blum the idea, which is inspired by her own life. Rees told Blum about her move to a small town: “You’ve got me and my wife, two black lesbians, and when we first moved in, we fought every day over all these little things: ‘Why is this over there? Did you move that?’”

“Maybe it was a ghost,” she observed. “Or maybe it was some other force — like us not wanting to be there or fitting in.”

Blum was intrigued by the pitch and followed up with her. Rees said that she is ready to “make the best possible version of what I want to make.”

“Visibility is great because it shows other African American women they can be whatever they chose to be. But for me, the story comes first. If I’m visible fine, but I really want the story to come first,” Rees told us, referring to opportunities for black women directors. “I stand on a lot of shoulders: Euzhan Palcy, Kasi Lemmons, and Julie Dash. It was great to be pursuing my dreams and hopefully I’ll build a body of work and I will be among them one day.”

Rees’ latest film, “Mudbound,” earned rave reviews when it premiered at Sundance earlier this year. Set in post–World War II South, the drama centers on two families facing racism and poverty. “Mudbound,” which Rees co-wrote with Virgil Williams, sold to Netflix for $12.5 million — the biggest deal of Sundance 2017. It stars Carey Mulligan (“Suffragette”), Jason Clarke (“Zero Dark Thirty”), Jason Mitchell (“Straight Outta Compton”), Mary J. Blige (“The Wiz Live!”), Rob Morgan (“Stranger Things”), Garrett Hedlund (“Inside Llewyn Davis”), and Jonathan Banks (“Better Call Saul”).

Mudbound” doesn’t have a release date yet, but is expected to debut sometime this year. Most recently, Rees has helmed two episodes of “When We Rise,” an ABC miniseries chronicling the gay rights movement in the U.S.

Dee Rees Working on a Horror Film About a Lesbian Couple in a Small Town was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »
