5 August 2014 6:49 AM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

Honeymoon for three? On CBS's The Young and the Restless, hotshot attorney Christine (Lauralee Bell) has been in a tizzy since learning that her hubby Paul (Doug Davidson) and his pal Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) created a child decades ago when they were members of a hippie love cult. This bizarre development — news to everyone in Genoa City, including the parents — has really bonded Paul and Nikki, to the point where he now seems hesitant to go through with plans to have a baby with Christine. What's worse, that damn drama queen Nikki won't go away! On Aug. 8, she's so emotionally distraught she intrudes on Christine and Paul's long-delayed honeymoon. TV Guide Magazine went to lunch with the three stars to find out where this divine mess is headed.

9 July 2014 6:55 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Gus Van Sant has signed on to direct the stuck in development film adaptation of the Japanese manga "Death Note" at Warner Bros. Pictures.

The story revolves around a college student named Light who finds a mysterious notebook which has the unique power to kill anyone whose name is written in it.

When the student uses his newfound power to rid the streets of criminals, he is pursued by an FBI criminologist. The title has already spawned a number of features and TV shows.

Shane Black, Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry worked on the script several years ago, no word if that draft will still be used. Dan Lin, Doug Davidson, Roy Lee and Brian Witten are producing.

Gus Van Sant Will Direct Anime Adaptation 'Death Note'

8 July 2014 6:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Gus Van Sant has signed on to direct an adaptation of the Japanese manga Death Note, which has been languishing in development at Warner Bros. for several years now.

Back in January 2011, Shane Black signed on to direct from a script by Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry, but we never heard anything else about the project until now. The Tracking Board reports that the most recent script was written by Shane Black, Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry, and that Shane Black was still attached to direct up until 2013, which is, coincidentally, when his blockbuster Iron Man 3 hit theaters.

Death Note is based on the Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, which follows a young student who finds a bizarre notebook. He discovers that he can kill anyone instantly simply by writing their name in the notebook, as an FBI agent starts tracking him when the bodies keep piling up. »

Best Actor at the Daytime Emmys could turn out to be a family feud if our forum posters are right. Peter Bergman and Billy Miller, who play brothers Jack and Billy Abbott on "The Young and the Restless," are both strong contenders to win. The nominees are as follows (click each actor's name to watch their submissions): -Break- Peter Bergman, "The Young and the Restless" Doug Davidson, "The Young and the Restless" Christian LeBlanc, "The Young and the Restless" Billy Miller, "The Young and the Restless" Jason Thompson, "General Hospital" Eileen Davidson vs. Heather Tom for Best Actress? Forum posters say ... Bergman submitted a strong episode in which he learns about a teenage daughter he never knew he had, while Miller submitted just the opposite: an episode of intense mourning shortly following the death of his young daughter in a hit-and-run accident. But it's po »

Daytime Emmy reels: Billy Miller ('Y

The Daytime Emmy reels for Best Actor are available for viewing online. I've watched all five. After two wins for Best Supporting Actor, will Billy Miller ("The Young and the Restless") earn a promotion for an episode involving the tragic death of his child? -Break- Watch his rivals' reels: Peter Bergman, Doug Davidson, Christian LeBlanc, and Jason Thomspon Length of Reel: 9:04 Synopsis: After the death of his daughter Delia in a hit-and-run, Billy Abbott (Miller) is met by his bitter rival Adam Newman (Michael Muhney), who tries to comfort him, though Billy doesn't realize Adam was the driver responsible for the accident. He returns home to his wife, Victoria (Supporting Actress nominee Amelia Heinle), and expresses his grief. Analysis: Miller submitted the same episode as his on-screen wife Heinle, though reels are edited down to just the actors' scenes, so we see a different side of the stor »

Daytime Emmy reels: Jason Thompson ('Gh') makes painful choice at Christmas in Best Actor scenes

24 May 2014 12:21 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The Daytime Emmy reels for Best Actor are available for viewing online. I've watched all five. Can four-time nominee Jason Thompson ("General Hospital") overcome another onslaught of "Young and the Restless" stars? -Break- Watch his rivals' reels: Peter Bergman, Doug Davidson, Christian LeBlanc, and Billy Miller Length of Reel: 10:13 Synopsis: Patrick Drake (Thompson) has a difficult decision to make when his wife (Emmy-winner Kimberly McCullough) returns from the dead. He makes a difficult decision to leave his new love, Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), and reunite with the woman he thought he lost. Analysis: Last year, Thompson competed against Doug Davidson ("Y&R") with a subtle performance, but it didn't pay off. This year's reel is also subtle, but he is extremely expressive in close-ups. The episode is also much longer, so while he doesn't demonstrate as much range a...' »

Daytime Emmy reels: Best Actor contender Peter Bergman ('Y

24 May 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The Daytime Emmy reels for Best Actor are available for viewing online. I've watched all five. Peter Bergman ("The Young and the Restless") has more Best Actor nominations than anyone in the awards' history. Will he add another trophy to his collection? -Break- Watch his rivals' reels: Doug Davidson, Christian LeBlanc, Billy Miller, and Jason Thomspon Length of Reel: 9:54 Synopsis: Jack Abbott (Bergman) confronts Phyllis (Emmy-winner Michelle Stafford) about kissing his son, which leads her to confess that her teenage daughter Summer is his biological child. He is outraged by the deception and is prepared to take his first drink since he battled for sobriety, but is talked down by the ghost of his father, John (Jerry Douglas). Analysis: "What kind of person lies about the father of their child?" Jack demands in this episode, which is ironic given how many of this year's acting nominees sub »

Daytime Emmy reels: Defending Best Actor Doug Davidson ('Y

24 May 2014 12:19 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The Daytime Emmy reels for Best Actor are available for viewing online. I've watched all five. After finally winning for the first time last year, can veteran Doug Davidson ("The Young and the Restless") keep it up? -Break- Watch his rivals' reels: Peter Bergman, Christian LeBlanc, Billy Miller, and Jason Thomspon Length of Reel: 8:35 Synopsis: Paul Williams (Davidson) talks a suicidal Jamie (Younger Actor nominee Daniel Polo) off the edge of a building, then confronts the parents of Jamie's bullies about taking responsibility for their own children's actions. Analysis: Davidson is the defending champion, winning for the first time last year after 35 years on "Y&R." His reel this year is less emotionally showy (in his winning scenes he confessed to murdering his own son), but the subject matter packs a punch, and so does Davidson's connection to the material. He shows Paul not...' »

Daytime Emmy reels: Best Actor nominee Christian LeBlanc ('Y

24 May 2014 12:18 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The Daytime Emmy reels for Best Actor are available for viewing online. I've watched all five. Will Christian LeBlanc ("The Young and the Restless") win his fourth Emmy in 10 years? -Break- Watch his rivals' reels: Peter Bergman, Doug Davidson, Billy Miller, and Jason Thomspon Length of Reel: 7:58 Synopsis: Michael Baldwin (LeBlanc) confronts his wife Lauren (Emmy-winner Tracey E. Bregman) with evidence that she is having an affair. She deflects the question and takes him to task for not supporting their son when he needed them. When Michael leaves to drown his sorrows at a bar, he becomes suspicious that the bartender is his wife's lover. Analysis: LeBlanc is a nine-time nominee and a three-time winner; all his wins have been in the lead category, and all have come in the last 10 years, so he can never be ruled out of an Emmy contest. His scenes are certainly impactful enough »

This story first appeared in the May 16 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Thomas Tull's business practices are at the center of a legal dispute with three top Hollywood producers who claim they were unfairly booted from Godzilla. Lawyers for Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Doug Davidson are demanding Legendary produce internal documents the trio says will show they were promised producer credits on the film for helping negotiate with Japanese rights owner Toho and developing the project at Legendary.

Can Jason Thompson ('General Hospital') overcome 'Young and Restless' onslaught at Daytime Emmys?

7 May 2014 3:55 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Best Actor nominee Jason Thompson ("General Hospital") has been in this position before at the Daytime Emmys. Last year he was nominated against three men from "The Young and the Restless." This year there are five nominees in the category, but once again Thompson is the only contender not representing "Y&R." Does that make the "Y&R" stars unbeatable? -Break- Daytime Emmy nominations: 'Y&R' leads with 26, 'Gh' snubbed for series In 2013, Thompson's "Y&R" opponents were Peter Bergman, Doug Davidson, and Michael Muhney, with Davidson winning the contest. Bergman and Davidson are back in contention this year, along with their co-stars Christian LeBlanc and Billy Miller. Not only is Thompson outnumbered by stars from a rival show, he's also the only actor in the category who isn't a previous winner. Davidson is the defending Best Actor champ, while Bergman is a three-time w...' »

‘Godzilla’ Director Gareth Edwards, Legendary’s Thomas Tull on Doing the ‘King of the Monsters’ Justice

6 May 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood can be a beast for anyone looking to establish a business.

Movies and TV shows frequently fail. Financing can dry up instantly. And the outsized egos and conflicting agendas of insecure executives can drive anyone mad. So the long odds overcome by an outsider like Thomas Tull in transforming his love for genre fare, comicbooks, toys and videogames into a brand for fanboys are somewhat astonishing.

Tull, who started his career running Laundromats in his hometown of Binghamton, New York, spent eight years building Legendary Entertainment on the back of co-financing deals for Warner Bros.’ superhero films featuring Batman and Superman, adaptations of graphic novels like “300″ and “Watchmen,” remakes of “Clash of the Titans,” and R-rated comedy franchise “The Hangover.” Lately, he has been digging deeper into his own wallet to take more control of the movies that bear his company’s name.

Last year, Legendary bankrolled 75% of the »
