Trump, Triumph and Speaking Truth to Power: Politics Take a Bow at 2017 Writers Guild Awards

19 February 2017 9:50 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When you think about the Writers Guild of America, which hosted two award ceremonies on Sunday night in two Blue cities, New York and Los Angeles, it’s no surprise that the writers spoke out. (Check out videos of some of the best bits below.)

For example, while accepting his life achievement award, filmmaker Oliver Stone got two standing ovations. After conservative James Woods was targeted at the top of the evening by WGA West Awards show host Patton Oswalt, retaliating by going onstage to steal his shoe, Woods presented the WGA award to the ultra liberal Stone, who starred him in “Salvador,” won three Oscars for “Midnight Express,” “Born on the Fourth of July” and “Platoon,” and penned “greed is good.”

Stone thanked mentors Robert Bolt and Ernest Lehman as well as Wma agent Ron Mardigian. He reminded that when he told Billy Wilder about his “Nixon” running time of 3 hours 10 minutes, »

Lindsay Lohan Wants to Be Ariel in The Little Mermaid Remake

19 February 2017 2:28 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in August, Disney revealed that the studio is teaming up with Lin-Manuel Miranda and Alan Menken, who are set to write new music for the studio's The Little Mermaid remake. We haven't heard any more on the remake since then, including who will be cast, or who will serve as writer or director on this coveted project. Today we have word that actress Lindsay Lohan may be throwing her hat in the ring for the Ariel role, after a new post on Instagram this weekend.

While Lindsay Lohan doesn't specifically state that she wants the Ariel role, she posted a side-by-side picture of herself with red hair, and the redhaired animated version of Ariel. She didn't state anything else on Instagram, only using the hashtag #TheLittleMermaid. It isn't known if the script is even ready or if the studio is ready to start the auditioning process, but we don't »

'Love Actually' is Getting a Mini Sequel for a Good Cause

You probably never expected there to be a sequel to Love Actually, the 2003 ensemble holiday favorite from writer/director Richard Curtis, and technically there likely never will be one officially.

The mini sequel is happening in support of Comic Relief and Red Nose Day, the biennial British televised fundraising event to provide aid in Ethiopia. The Comic Relief charity was actually founded in 1986 by Curtis, who was then a TV writer.  Titled Red Nose Day Actually, the short will feature original cast members Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Bill Nighy, Rowan Atkinson, Martine McCutcheon...

Newswire: Love Actually writer is crafting a mini-sequel for charity

15 February 2017 12:19 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Like many people who watched Love Actually, we have lingering questions about the 2003 film. For example, did Harry and Karen stay together after his sort-of infidelity? They’re spotted together at the airport, but did she really forgive him? Also, were Sam and Joanna able to work out some kind of long-distance thing? And did Richard Curtis seriously think that what Mark did to Juliet and Peter wasn’t fucked up? Some of those queries may be answered sooner than you’d think—BuzzFeed reports that Curtis is working on a “mini-sequel” to his indefatigably popular rom-com.

The forthcoming comedy skit will do more than just potentially satisfy our curiosity. Titled Red Nose Day Actually in honor of the annual day of philanthropy, the short film will benefit Comic Relief, a charity that helps people in the UK and Africa. Curtis said via press release that he’d never ...
