Time knocks them for not keeping their promise to the gays. I knew this backlash would happen. But they did hold out a long time and they've done so much good for the world including for marriage equality that I think we should let it slide

Gawker asks the intriguing question: "Why is Angelina Jolia a movie star?"

Some of her movies have been well-received acting vehicles. Some of her movies have been gargantuan commercial products. There is no place where those circles overlap on the Venn diagram. 

It's worth pondering her atypical celebrity.

John Hillcoat's 'Triple Nine' Sets Fall 2015 Release Date

28 August 2014 6:37 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

2015 may be over-saturated with costly tentpoles, but we have release date news of at least two films that appear to be aiming at an older crowd: we suspect each will be worlds apart in tone once all is said and done, First up, THR reports that John Hillcoat’s followup to “Lawless” will hit theaters next year on September 11th. Titled “Triple Nine,” the Matt Cook-scripted heist thriller will follow “a crew of dirty cops that [are] blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist. The only way to pull it off is to manufacture a 999, police code for ‘officer down,’ but the plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack.” While the plot may sound like something straight out of the David Ayer playbook, the cast is nothing to sneeze at, encompassing actors like Chiwetel EjioforCasey Affleck, »

John Hillcoat's Corrupt Cop Drama, 'Triple Nine' Set for September 2015 Release

27 August 2014 4:37 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Open Road has set a September 11, 2015 release date for John Hillcoat's new film Triple Nine and I'm largely mentioning this because this is a film with a stacked cast from a director whose work I highly anticipate. Matt Cook penned the script and the ensemble cast includes Chiwetel Ejiofor, Casey Affleck, Anthony Mackie, Woody Harrelson, Aaron Paul, Kate Winslet, Gal Gadot, Norman Reedus, Teresa Palmer and Clifton Collins, Jr. As for the plot, it centers on a crew of dirty cops is blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist and the only way to pull it off is to manufacture a 999, police code for "officer down." Their plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack, triggering a breakneck action-packed finale tangled with double-crosses, greed and revenge. This is a release date to remember and a movie »

20,000 Days on Earth directors Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard on Nick Cave with Blixa Bargeld, Kylie Minogue, Warren Ellis and Ray Winstone: "They were all people we thought would draw out a different side of Nick." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

20,000 Days On Earth loosely intertwines Nick Cave with music collaborators Kylie Minogue, Warren Ellis and Blixa Bargeld, submerging us into his unholy earthiness. Ray Winstone, Captain Stanley in John Hillcoat's The Proposition, written by Cave with an Ellis/Cave score, joins the cast of witnesses.

Speaking with Jane Pollard and Iain Forsyth in New York, we discussed the importance of Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita, Nicolas Roeg's The Man Who Fell To Earth, Michel Gondry-like eels, the genesis of the project in an open Cave notebook and the fateful day of recording Push The Sky Away.

Kami Naghdi joins Clintons

1 July 2014 5:01 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Entertainment lawyer and producer Kami Naghdi has joined London-based boutique law firm Clintons, where he will head the firm’s film and TV practice.

Former lawyer Naghdi took a six-year hiatus from law to produce on a number of features including Bille August’s The Color of Freedom, Werner Herzog’s Rescue Dawn and Ryuhei Kitamura’s No One Lives.

Prior to producing, Naghdi had provided legal services to films including Woody Allen’s Match Point and John Hillcoat’s The Proposition.

Hillcoat's Stacked Cast for 'Triple Nine' Makes It a Must See of 2015

30 June 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Gal Gadot (Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Fast & Furious 6) tweeted a couple photos from the set of John Hillcoat's Triple Nine (included at the bottom of this post), reminding me this is a film I think has only been mentioned once on this site and that was almost four years ago when Shia Labeouf was circling the pic after Labeouf worked with Hillcoat on Lawless. Now there's no Labeouf, but the cast is stacked for this corrupt cop drama. The film centers on a group of corrupt police officers who are blackmailed into pulling off a seemingly impossible heist. In order to orchestrate the plan a "999", code for 'officer down', must be executed and a rookie police officer is the proposed victim. Along with Gadot, the film stars Aaron Paul, Teresa Palmer, Kate Winslet, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael B. Jordan, Clifton Collins Jr., Anthony Mackie and Norman Reedus. »
