Aiming to beef up their 2014 slate with a title they feel will work well as a day and date theatrical/VOD type release, Lionsgate Films have picked The Angriest Man in Brooklyn – a rush thru traffic/fight against time archetype comedy featuring/pitting Robin Williams vs Mila Kunis. Indie vets Melissa Leo, Peter Dinklage and Hamish Linklater complete the supporting cast.
Gist: Written by Daniel Taplitz, this is the story of Henry Altmann (Williams), who is having a horrible day, made much worse by his visit with Dr. Sharon Gill (Kunis), who abruptly informs him that he only has 90 minutes to live. After storming out of the hospital in disbelief, Henry panics and races through Brooklyn in an attempt to right all of the wrongs in his life, while Sharon desperately scrambles to find him and get him into surgery.

Five-year-old FilmNation Entertainment — a key player in the independent sales-financing-producing world — is officially part of the American Film Market for the first time.
FilmNation will be selling international markets for a quartet of projects — Woody Allen’s “Magic in the Moonlight”; Alejandro Amenabar’s “Regression,” which the Weinstein Co. has bought; Bill Condon’s Sherlock Holmes tale “A Slight Trick of the Mind,” starring Ian McKellen; and Anton Corbijn’s “Life,” starring Dane DeHaan and Robert Pattinson.
In the past Afm, FilmNation execs still conducted meetings at Afm as it saw steady growth while acting as a producer, financier and sales agent. For CEO Glen Basner, it makes sense to formally be at Afm this November as the major studios continue to cede mid-budget and specialty films to the indie sector. Buyers, he said, have grown more discerning.

Nearly all of Fall TV's new series have debuted, and some have captured our interest more than others. Our editors live and breathe pop culture, and we're pretty huge TV nerds. Read on to find out which new series we're obsessed with, and I'm not talking about the shows we've got piled on our DVR. I'm talking about the shows we can't miss, the ones we watch night-of, the ones we try to talk our friends into watching so we don't have to turn to fan blogs. The Crazy Ones It took me a couple of episodes, but I'm all in on The Crazy Ones. Robin Williams is sharp as ever with his uniquely frenetic style of comedy, but he's not the only highlight of the show. The ever-adorable James Wolk has finally found a place to be charming every week, and Hamish Linklater is an ideal foil for those »

Wolk tweeted out the above photo of his co-star eating in a zebra print snuggie, because ... well, why not? It's hilarious. That's all the reason we need, really.
"Who's excited for #TheCrazyOnes tonight?" the caption reads. "Here's a peek at what goes on behind the camera #HamishLinklater #Snuggie."
"The Crazy Ones" airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. Et on CBS. »
After 30 years, Robin Williams has returned to television in The Crazy Ones. Will his new show measure up to CBS' high ratings standards for their sitcoms, or will it be cancelled like so many others? Time will tell.
The Crazy Ones follows an unorthodox ad agency executive (Williams) and his partner and daughter (Sarah Michelle Gellar). The rest of the cast includes James Wolk, Hamish Linklater, and Amanda Setton.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

Los Angeles, Oct 17: Actor-director Woody Allen has titled his next movie "Magic in the Moonlight", reports contactmusic.com.
The director has refused to give anymore details about his project, but if reports are to be believed, it is set in the 1930s.
In the past, Allen has. »

The past few years have been good to Woody Allen. With 2011’s Midnight in Paris becoming his top grossing film ever and Blue Jasmine earning nothing but raves for his cast led by Cate Blanchett, Allen’s looking to continue the big screen magic with his latest project.
Continuing the trend of releasing one film each year (his current streak dates back to 1982), the writer-director-actor unveiled two production stills and the title of his 2014 effort: Magic in the Moonlight.
The director seems to have found a new muse for his latest production in none other than Emma Stone, who stars alongside Colin Firth, Marcia Gay Harden, Jacki Weaver, Hamish Linklater and Simon McBurney.

Coming off the back of two biggest commercial hits of his career, Midnight In Paris and Blue Jasmine, Woody Allen is already currently at work on his next project even with the latter still in theatres. Plot details for Magic In The Moonlight are still under wraps but the Sony Classic Pictures film, thought to be a romantic comedy (so no change there) spanning 20 years during the 1920/30s, has a super cast that is led by Emma Stone and Colin Firth.
Here we have the first still from the film co-starring Marcia Gay Harden, Jacki Weaver, Eileen Atkins, Hamish Linklater, Erica Leerhsen, Antonia Clarke and Simon McBurney. It’s set for release next summer.
The post First Stills From Woody Allen’s ‘Magic In The Moonlight’ appeared first on The Hollywood News. »

In typical Woody Allen fashion, the first image and title for his latest film has been released just weeks after the release of Blue Jasmine. It is now confirmed that the Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man) and Colin Firth (The King's Speech) vehicle will be titled Magic in the Moonlight and will be a period piece. Allen's last period piece was the impeccable Midnight in Paris and hopefully he can continue his impressive run of form. Here's the first image, featuring Stone and Marcia Gay Harden (Mystic River)....
Although the plot is still kept under wraps, Magic in the Moonlight will see Emma Stone, Colin Firth and Marcia Gay Harden joined by Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook), Eileen Atkins (Cold Mountain) and Hamish Linklater (The Newsroom), Simon McBurney (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Jeremy Shamos (Taking Woodstock) and Erica Leerhsen (Anything Else). The release date is as yet to be confirmed, »

Woody Allen has revealed that the name of his new movie is Magic in the Moonlight.
Magic in the Moonlight - Allen's first feature shot in France since 2011's Midnight in Paris - is expected to release in 2014.
Midnight in Paris took in $151 million at the worldwide box office and earned Allen a 'Best Original Screenplay' Oscar.
Watch a trailer for Blue Jasmine below: »
When he’s still working on a film – as is the case with his latest – Woody Allen tends to rival Marvel and J.J. Abrams for secrecy in terms of what information he lets slip. He has, however, finally announced the title and let loose a couple of pictures from his latest, which we now know is called Magic In The Moonlight. Recently wrapped in the South of France, the film appears to be a period piece, which puts us in mind of Midnight In Paris (there’s no evidence yet that there will be scenes set in the present day, but who can tell when Woody keeps everyone sworn to secrecy?).What we do know is that Allen has assembled a typically great cast, with Colin Firth, Emma Stone, Marcia Gay Harden, Jacki Weaver, Hamish Linklater, Eileen Atkins, Simon McBurney, Erica Leerhsen, Catherine McCormack, Paul Ritter and Jeremy Shamos all »
Acclaimed director Woody Allen never has a problem landing big stars for his projects, and his latest offering, which he announced today will be called Magic in the Moonlight, is no different.
The film, which takes place in the south of France, stars Emma Stone, Colin Firth, Eileen Atkins, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater, Simon McBurney, Jacki Weaver, Jeremy Shamos, Paul Ritter, Catherine McCormack and Erica Leerhsen. In typical Woody Allen style, very few details have emerged about the film’s premise, though new stills from Magic in the Moonlight give us a few hints.
The images show Stone, Firth and Gay Harden in fanciful 1930s attire at an extravagant mansion in the French countryside. Vintage cars appear in the background on one photo. Does this mean that Magic in the Moonlight will take place entirely in the 1930s, or will it be another time-travel romp like Midnight in Paris? »
