Archer: Season Seven Ratings

20 May 2016 7:25 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last year, fans didn't have to worry about Archer being cancelled because it had already been renewed for season seven. The ratings fell. This time around, the show's fate is up in the air. Will this be the final season of Archer? Cancelled or renewed for season eight? Stay tuned.

Archer revolves around the highly skilled but vain former master spy Sterling Archer (Jon Benjamin). He and his coworkers now run a private investigation firm in Los Angeles. Every seedy surveillance of a suspected adulterer or investigation into insurance fraud is actually just another excuse for the staff to undermine, sabotage and betray each other for personal gain. The sitcom also features the voices of Aisha Tyler, Jessica Walter, Chris Parnell, Judy Greer, Amber Nash, Lucky Yates, and Adam Reed.

18 May 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

George Clooney’s Suburbicon has just picked up Woody Harrelson. According to The Wrap, the former True Detective star has now officially come aboard as part of the forthcoming crime comedy film, scripted by Joel and Ethan Coen.

Suburbicon is set in the quiet family town of Suburbicon in the ‘50s. The film centers on a deadly home invasion that forces a family into the murky waters of blackmail and revenge. The film boasts an impressive cast comprised of Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac and Josh Brolin. Needless to say, Harrelson, who previously worked with Brolin in the Coen Brothers’ No Country For Old Men, is a welcome addition.

Harrelson can be seen next in Now You See Me 2 and The Duel with Liam Hemsworth. He can also be seen alongside Laura Dern and Judy Greer in the forthcoming screen adaptation of Daniel ClowesWilson and Rob Reiner’s Lbj. »

Michael Shannon to be mistaken for Bigfoot in Pottersville

10 May 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that Michael Shannon has signed on to star in the indie comedy drama Pottersville, where he’ll appear alongside Judy Greer, Tom Lennon, Ron Perlman, Christina Hendricks and Ian McShane.

Pottersville “centers on Maynard (Shannon), a beloved local businessman who is mistaken for the legendary Bigfoot during an inebriated romp through town in a makeshift gorilla costume. The sightings set off an international Bigfoot media spectacle and a windfall of tourism dollars for a simple American town hit by hard times. When Brock Masterson (Lennon), reality TV’s Monster Hunter, arrives to hunt the beast, Maynard agonizes over whether to come clean, destroying the rebirth of his beloved town, or perpetuate the inadvertent hoax.”

Seth Henrikson is making his feature length directorial debut on the film, which has been scripted by Dan Meyer.

STX Partners with Ben Stiller for ‘Alex Strangelove’ Comedy

9 May 2016 1:49 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

STX Entertainment is developing teen comedy “Alex Strangelove” with Craig Johnson (“The Skeleton Twins”) and is in advanced talks with Ben Stiller’s Red Hour Films to produce.

Johnson is directing from his own script about high school senior Alex Strangelove, whose quest to lose his virginity — eagerly awaited by his patient girlfriend, cheered on by his rowdy friends — launches him into an exploration of modern manhood.

In addition to Red Hour, STX is also in talks on “Alex Strangelove” with producers Nicky Weinstock and Jared Goldman.

Red Hour, which is operated by Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld, announced in November that it was  partnering with Bold Films to produce a slate of new movie, TV and digital projects. It also announced that Weinstock was joining Red Hour at that point.

Red Hour, which had a longstanding first-look deal at Fox, has produced mostly comedies including the “Zoolander” movies,  “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, »

Pilot Buzz: Female-Led Comedies, Time Travel & Known Brands Heating Up at Broadcast Nets

2 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

May is here, which means that new broadcast TV shows are almost here.

This week, network execs are sitting in screening sessions, gathering final thoughts on pilots, some of which will be unveiled as official 2016-17 series later this month at upfronts in New York City.

Though the nets will have a better sense of their pilot slates by this week’s end, certain projects are emerging as hot — or not.

Diversity will shine this next TV season across the board, as will recognizable brands and talent. Female-led comedies are dominating ABC’s list of potential favorites, along with female-led dramas that appear to pack more procedural flare. Major male TV stars will topline the majority of programming at CBS. Fox is full of reboots, as well as some really big swings, while NBC is eyeing properties and hitmakers that have done well for them in the past. The CW »

Phedon Papamichael Eschews Visual Flash for Authenticity, Humanity

20 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Phedon papamichael might not have the name identification of such fellow directors of photography as Emmanuel “Chivo” Lubezki or Roger Deakins, but his status among his peers is no less elite. He has brought out the best in directors like Alexander Payne, James Mangold and Gore Verbinski. And he has demonstrated a mastery of several genres, from psychological thrillers to dramedies, from biopics to Westerns, from arthouse curios to mega-budget blockbusters.

If cinematographers like to think of themselves as chameleons, Papamichael prides himself on an oeuvre in which no two movies look alike.

“It’s not really applying a style, it’s really adjusting to the story,” says Variety’s latest Billion Dollar Cinematographer. “Not just that, it’s really saving all those decisions — (involving) the performances and locations and actors — until you have all the elements unfold in front of you the moment you’re about to do it. »

Grandma DVD Review

3 April 2016 11:27 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The movie is called Grandma and stars Lily Tomlin. That’s all you really need to know about this diverting 80 minutes of indie-style drama. It’s with praise and blame that I note writer/director Paul Weitz‘s casting of the iconic actress which in some ways lifts the action but in others draws attention to the overall lack of punch.

It opens as ageing counter culture poet Elle (Tomlin) is dumping younger girlfriend Olivia (Judy Greer) but we soon learn Elle is pushing Olivia away to stop her getting too close, rather than having fallen out of love. She doesn’t have much time to mope though as granddaughter Sage (Julia Garner) arrives with a bombshell – she’s pregnant and seeking cash for a termination. Elle then transports her to various places in a bid to raise the funds from people she knows – this becomes a journey through various phases of her life, »
