Time to Help Choose the Next Series: 5 New Pilots Premiere August 28th

11 August 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | Hollywonk | See recent Hollywonk news »

Big news today: We’re excited to announce Amazon Studios’ third pilot season, beginning August 28th and featuring three half hour comedies The Cosmopolitans, Really and Red Oaks, and two hour-long dramatic thrillers Hand of God and Hysteria.  For one month, it will be up to you to watch, rate and comment – ultimately helping us decide which of them get the greenlight.

“There is something for everyone in this season,” says Roy Price, Director of Amazon Studios.  The glamorous life of modern day expats in Paris. The hijinks of a summer job at a country club in 1980s New Jersey. The visions of a vigilante judge who appears to be channeling God.  The complexities of marriage and friendship among a circle of friends in suburban Chicago.  And the mysteries behind a psycho-physiological illness spreading through a small town in Texas. 

You can help choose which of these stories should get “picked up” to become shows. »

‘The Fluffy Movie’ Interview with Comedian Gabriel Iglesias

25 July 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Comedian Gabriel Iglesias has just started to make a silver screen presence, having done some voice-work for Planes in 2013 and The Nut Job in 2014, along with appearing in films like Magic Mike and A Haunted House 2. Now, Iglesias makes his biggest effort yet to show the moviegoing crowd his comedy of hyper impressions and voices with his first theatrical stand-up film, The Fluffy Movie.

I sat down in a roundtable interview with Iglesias to discuss his stand-up film, the power of Youtube numbers, the over-the-top stereotype humor in A Haunted House 2, Magic Mike 2, and more.

The Fluffy Movie opens everywhere on July 25.

What has been your involvement with this film project, aside from making the jokes?

This is really challenging for me because it’s my baby, I’m very personal about my standup. That’s all I’ve known. And so the back-and-forth with the film company, »

Red Oaks Comedy Pilot Teams Steven Soderbergh With David Gordon Green, Announces Cast

8 July 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Red Oaks seems like it could definitely be my type of jam. A comedy set in 1985 at a country club in New Jersey?  This has enough shades of Caddyshack to pique my interest.  Of course it doesn't hurt that the show will be produced by Steven Soderbergh or that the pilot will be directed by David Gordon Green (Eastbound & Down).  Red Oaks is gearing up to shoot as a pilot for Amazon (who are still implementing their voting policy when it comes to determining what gets picked up to series). And now the cast has been announced.  Red Oaks stars Craig Roberts (Submarine) as David Myers, a college student who’s an assistant tennis pro at the Red Oaks Country Club in suburban New Jersey in 1985.  Paul Reiser (Mad About You), Richard Kind (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing), Oliver Cooper (Californication), Gage Golightly (MTV’s Teen Wolf) and »

Helming the first episode will be filmmaker David Gordon Green ("Pineapple Express," "Eastbound & Down"), who's set to direct from a script by Gregory Jacobs ("The Knick") and Joe Gangemi ("Eliza Graves"). “Greg Jacobs told me this idea on the set of 'Behind the Candelabra' and I told him it was great and that he should start working on it immediately,” said executive-producer Soderbergh in a statement. “Then, while we were on the set of 'The Knick' he gave me the script he wrote with Joe Gangemi and I said, »

"It Stopped Being Fun," the Biggest Reason Steven Soderbergh Quit the Movies

7 July 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In a new interview with Steven Soderbergh at Esquire, the director of the upcoming Cinemax television show "The Knick" discussed the "biggest reason" he got out of movies, which was, "It stopped being fun." The fact that it became a story at all is because of Matt Damon. He remembered verbatim a drunk conversation we had in Chicago and repeated it to USA Today. I'd talked about it before and nobody gave a sh*t. It wasn't until Matt said that I had a plan to get out. The bottom line when people talk about all the reasons, you know the biggest reasonc It stopped being fun. It just stopped being fun. It really wasn't. That's a big deal to me. It may sound like "Why do you have to have fun to go to workc" I don't know. I like to be in a good mood. The ratio of »

And he’s recruited Craig Roberts, Paul Reiser, Richard Kind and Oliver Copper to star.As with The Girlfriend Experience show, Soderbergh won’t actually direct the pilot for the new potential series, though he’s hired someone more than capable: David Gordon Green.

Joe Manganiello Updates on ‘Magic Mike Xxl’

25 June 2014 6:44 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Correction: In an earlier article, it was mistakenly published that Channing Tatum is writing in the quote. In fact, Joe Manganiello said that Reid Carolin is writing. And as a point of clarification, Manganiello will have more input on his character in "Magic Mike Xxl." We regret this error.

Big Dick Richie is back.                                  

And that’s probably a no brainer.

During an exclusive interview with Latino-Review, actor Joe Manganiello re-confirmed he will be back next installment of the male stripper movie, “Magic Mike Xxl.”

He told Latino-Review via phone.

“I will be Magic Mike 2. Yes. I did have my producer/director hat on for the past year and a half with ‘La Bare.’"

Manganiello admitted he may have a larger role in the movie.

This is what he told us:

“At some point during the summer, I’m going to have to get back into it. I’m »
