Megan Fox Entertains Idea Of One Day Playing Indiana Jones

16 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Megan Fox is keen to follow in the footsteps of her Transformers co-star Shia Labeouf and have a crack at the Indiana Jones franchise – but as the famed archeologist himself, as opposed to a supporting player.

Word comes by way of GameSpot, who spoke to the actress ahead of her part in blockbuster sequel Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, where she’ll be reprising her role of seasoned reporter April O’Neil. Beyond that, Fox noted that donning the whip and fedora as Indiana Jones would actually be her second choice, behind Tomb Raider‘s own iconic archeologist Lara Croft.

Per GameSpot:

“I’ve always wanted to do Tomb Raider, but it’s been done–and very well. So I guess I’d go with Indiana Jones, since I always loved how fun and free-spirited Indiana is. He’s an adventurous rogue archaeologist who barely escapes death »

‘It’s happened to me before,’ Labeouf said in a voice message left to a man in New York City, who was allegedly attacked for resembling the actor

A man assaulted in New York for looking like Shia Labeouf got a call from the actor himself in commiseration.

Mario Licato, an advertising art director, was sucker-punched in a Lower East Side subway station on Saturday night. “While I was falling down the stairs, all I hear was, ‘This is because you look exactly like Shia Labeouf,’” Licato told Gothamist.

Man Punched in the Face for Looking 'Exactly Like Shia Labeouf'

27 April 2016 6:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Shia Labeouf once wore a paper bag over his head to announce "I am not famous anymore," but he's still famous enough that strangers are willing to punch other strangers on the streets of New York simply for resembling him. That's when you know you are actually quite infamous.

A NYPD spokesperson confirmed to People that Mario Licato, 26, now has a black eye after being punched by a man in his 20s while walking down the subway stairs at the corner of Essex and Delancey. According to the NYPD rep, the punching man stated, "This is because you look like Shia Labeouf."

So he never thought the guy was Shia Labeouf, he just apparently hates the "Transformers" actor so much that he's now on a hunt through the streets, punching anyone who even comes close. It's like the Terminator taking out any and all Sarah Connors. Casualties are inevitable.

Tribeca Film Festival: A Conversation with Acclaimed Writer/Director Andrea Arnold

26 April 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

At the Tribeca Talks series at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival, filmmaker Ira Sachs ("Love is Strange") interviewed U.K. writer and director Andrea Arnold about writing, filmmaking, and surrendering.

In 2005 Arnold’s short film, Wasp, earned an Academy Award. She also received two BAFTA awards and two jury prizes at Cannes, as well as a multitude of festival accolades for her films, "Milk," "Dog," "Red Road," "Fish Tank" and "Wuthering Heights." On television she has directed two episodes of "Transparent." Arnold's latest film, "American Honey" starring Shia Labeouf and Riley Keough (recently acquired by A24) about a crew of teens who sell magazines across the Midwest is her first to be filmed in the U.S. "American Honey" is one of just three films from female directors in the 2016 Cannes Film Festival’s main competition and one of two from the U.K.

 On Filmmaking

In Andrea Arnold’s films many of the actors are non-actors and they employ street casting.

Sachs: The shooting process has surprises, dangers, and risks.

Arnold: I love that. It brings life. I don’t like knowing everything that’s going to happen on the shoot.  

Sachs:  What frightens you in filmmaking?

Arnold: I like the obstacles. In the last one (‘American Honey’), I think I pushed it. It was very tough, there were days I had scenes with loads of non-actors, and there were a few days I really pushed it.  What are you frightened of?

Sachs: I’m burdened by everything.

Arnold: The money?

Sachs: Yes, the money. It’s fear and fearlessness.  You navigate between the two; I don’t panic in it.  

Arnold: I remember before starting the film, I was taking a lot of risks that definitely entered my head. I try not to let the money stop me, you worry too much then you don’t push it. I do feel responsible for the money.

Sachs: Do you think your filmmaking has changed?  

Arnold: I feel like the last film I made was the most me I’ve ever been. I trusted myself totally, the most I’ve ever done. In that way it has changed.  

About Screenwriting

Sachs: How do your ideas for film begins?

Arnold: Usually what starts driving me is an image I have that won’t go away.  For ‘Fish Tank’ I had an image of a girl pissing on the floor in someone’s house, it wasn’t her house. And I thought ‘What is this girl doing?’ and then I start thinking about what that means and who she is, where she comes from, why she’s doing that, and so I start a mind map.  

Surrendering

Arnold: Sometimes when you’re filmmaking things don't always go the way you were expecting.  You know, I have such a beautiful vision in my head in my head before the shoot, and then we get there and of course it's different.

On Improvising

Sachs: With your screenplays, does the dialogue or the action ever change when you're shooting?  Is there any improvisation?  How concerned are you with preserving what you've written?

Arnold: I always have this romantic idea about improvising but then we go on set and there's no time to get the same coverage. I think it's sometimes valuable when you have scenes that might not be working. And this last film (‘American Honey’) we did more than normal. I let them put in some of their own words but it's definitely my story but they did do it in their own kind of way.

Sachs: I never liked improvisation. I want it restrained.

Using Film

Arnold: We did start with film, but it was way too difficult; we had to keep changing magazines. I like film a lot.  Somebody said the other day, which I thought was a very good way of describing it; “When you see a shot of a man in an empty room, on video, you think someone has left the room, and when you see it on film, you think someone is about to come in.” There’s nothing like film.

On Rehearsing

Sachs: Do you give actors the whole script? Rehearse?

Arnold: I haven't rehearsed in a long time. I don’t like to rehearse. In ‘Fish Tank’ I gave them pages once a week and they learned it bit by bit. On this last one, ‘American Honey’ I gave them pages every day -- they didn’t know what was coming!

Final Words

Sachs: Advice for first-time directors?

Arnold: Be yourself. There's only one of you. Be unique, trust that.

Q&A: Shia Labeouf and Alma Har’el on Merging Reality and Performance in ‘LoveTrue’

22 April 2016 3:26 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Among the most singular films to premiere at this Tribeca Film Festival, Alma Har’el’s documentary “LoveTrue” reps an unusual view on the well-worn topic of love, in all its human imperfections. Tracing the bittersweet trajectories of three people under varying types of emotional strain — an Alaskan stripper fearing a lonely future, a Hawaiian slacker re-examining his relationship to his son, and the teenage daughter of a troubled but musically gifted New York family — the film blends intimate non-fiction footage with stylized dramatization in a manner that expands on the unorthodox technique of Har’el’s breakout 2011 doc, “Bombay Beach.” It also marks a striking off-camera diversion for actor Shia Labeouf, here taking his first feature-length credit as executive producer. We chatted to Har’el and Labeouf about this unexpected creative collaboration.

The three subjects you follow embody very different types of love. Do you think there’s a »

LoveTrue review: dreamy, evocative – and just a bit dull

22 April 2016 10:57 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This Israeli director’s film, backed by Shia Labeouf, follows a pensive stripper, busker and surfer – but while well shot, their stories just aren’t that interesting

What is love? It’s a question that has vexed thinkers from Plato to Haddaway. Israeli director Alma Har’el, whose roots lie in music videos and art installations, makes no claim on knowing the answer, but is persistent in repeating the question. If the chatter at this year’s Tribeca film festival is to be believed LoveTrue, Har’el’s latest, was financed without the consultation of lawyers after the increasingly art-adjacent Shia Labeouf became a fan of the director since her last picture, the hallucinatory portrait of a California ghost town, Bombay Beach.

LoveTrue is a portrait of three individuals who share no connection other than being unhappy. Blake is a big-hearted young stripper in Alaska, who finds tremendous empowerment and gratification in her job, »

Jerrod Carmichael Heads For Transformers 5

22 April 2016 6:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

All eyes are on Jerrod Carmichael – the young NBC star making a name for himself by creating his own material – as he begins to segue into film roles in an increasingly big way. Having created his own comedy series, The Carmichael Show, the actor will soon be seen reprising his Bad Neighbours role in the upcoming sequel, and is now tipped to join the cast of Transformers 5.

The fifth instalment in what has now become a multi-billion dollar film franchise will be directed by Michael Bay in Detroit this summer. The legendary action director kickstarted the Transformers film series back in 2007, when the robots in disguise stormed the screen alongside Shia Labeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Anthony Anderson and Jon Voight. A sequel followed in 2009 with largely the same cast, while Rosie Huntington-Whitely replaced Megan Fox as the token female in the third film – released in 2011.

Tribeca Film Review: ‘LoveTrue’

18 April 2016 7:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Human love — in all its fulsome, frustrating forms — is a slippery subject for an 82-minute documentary to wrap its arms around, but Alma Har’el’s opalescent, often bewitching “LoveTrue” makes a virtue of that elusiveness. Merging intimate fly-on-the-wall footage with fanciful dramatization in a manner that will be familiar to admirers of Har’el’s 2011 feature debut “Bombay Beach,” this more untethered outing drops in on three delicate domestic scenarios in which love is both fostered and challenged: an Alaskan stripper’s first serious relationship, a Hawaiian surfer’s conflicted paternity crisis, and a New York musician’s processing of her parents’ embittered separation. To what degree these narratives highlight universalities or distinct, disparate facets of love is in the eye of the beholder; either way, Har’el saturated sensory technique is a seduction in itself.

‘Love True’ at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival

18 April 2016 5:48 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

In 2011, Alma Har’el won the Best Documentary Feature Award at the Tribeca Film Festival for her doc Bombay Beach. Now just five years later, Har’el is back with another documentary at Tribeca, called Love True. Grammatically it may incorrect but visually, it astounds the audience’s eyes with amazing aesthetics of the past, present, and future of three characters.

What makes the film remarkably poignant is not only the subject matter, but rather the story between Har’el and executive producer Shia Labeouf. At the time of filming, Har’el was going through a bitter divorce with her filmmaker husband, and she talks about the struggle between what the film showed and her actual life.

But how did Labeouf come to work together with Har’el? After going through a bad relationship of his own, he was searching through movies and found Har’el’s Bombay Beach in »
