At nearly 8 months old, baby James Reynolds has accomplished what most supermodels and style icons only dream of—having a handbag named in her honor. Of course, the baby girl has the added benefit of being Blake Lively's daughter, meaning she skipped a few steps to reach the prestigious milestone. As the founder of bohemian lifestyle hub Preserve, Blake's tacked on "fashion designer" to her ever-growing repertoire, teaming up with a squad of designers and artisans in the process. And clearly, she's put her Gossip Girl sartorial training to good use, as she's already whipped up a few Amour Vert-approved dresses and, now, this enviable tote bag.

Steve Carell Drafted In To Replace Bruce Willis On Woody Allen’s Latest

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

Woody Allen has wasted no time in finding a replacement for Bruce Willis ahead of his new upcoming project, with Deadline reporting that the decorated filmmaker has drafted in Foxcatcher and Despicable Me alum Steve Carell to fill the vacant role.

News of Willis’ abrupt departure (firing?) came as a big shock late last week, considering that production on the Los Angeles/New York love story had barely begun in earnest. The official word is that scheduling conflicts had cropped up, specifically in relation to Willis walking the boards on Broadway, that forced him to pull out of the project at the eleventh hour. Still, the fact that the entire thing was filed away with relatively few details released suggests that there is more to this story than meets the eye.

Whatever the case, Carell’s swift casting ensures that production can continue on Woody Allen’s latest without any need for delay, »

Steve Carell to replace Bruce Willis in Woody Allen’s new film

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After news broke last week about Bruce Willis’ departure from the cast of Woody Allen’s now-shooting new film, the production has moved quickly to secure the services of Steve Carell to replace Willis, Variety reports.

Carell joins a cast that includes American Ultra stars Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart, as well as Blake Lively (The Age of Adeline), Parker Posey (Irrational Man), Anna Camp (Pitch Perfect) and Corey Stoll (Ant-Man).

Willis had to depart the project due to scheduling conflicts with his appearance on Broadway in Stephen King’s Misery, although some reports suggest he was dismissed. No official announcement on the reason behind his exit has been made.

Allen’s new film is set to debut in 2016 and is currently untitled.

Steve Carell Replaces Bruce Willis In Woody Allen’s Next Film

13 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last week when it was reported that Bruce Willis had exited Woody Allen's new film due to "scheduling," someone hit our comments section and teased that an "Oscar nominee" was going to replace the actor, which has happened indeed. Read More: The 10 Best-Shot Films Of Woody Allen Variety reports that Steve Carell (Best Actor nominee for "Foxcatcher") will step in for Bruce Willis in the movie. He joins an already pretty great ensemble featuring Blake Lively, Parker Posey, Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeannie Berlin, Corey Stoll, Anna Camp, Paul Schneider, and more, and as always, the title and plot remain under lock and key. But we do know the picture is a period piece based on set photos. It will be Carell's second time working with Allen, following a small role in "Melinda And Melinda," and it's likely a thrill for the actor who cut his teeth on comedy. »

Steve Carell set to take over Bruce Willis role in new Woody Allen film

29 August 2015 6:46 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Steve Carell is gearing up to reunite with his Melinda and Melinda director Woody Allen in the filmmaker's new movie.

The Foxcatcher actor will replace Bruce Willis in the film after Willis "was forced to leave" production, reports Variety.

The untitled project, which is written and directed by Allen, already features an all-star cast, including Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively, Jesse Eisenberg, Parker Posey, Anna Camp and Paul Schneider among many others.

Willis exited the project earlier this month due to his Broadway commitment to Misery but not before he had been spotted filming on set.

Allen's last movie Irrational Man was released in July and starred Joaquin Phoenix, Parker Posey and Emma Stone.

Meanwhile, Carell's latest project saw him revisit his evil villain character Gru from the animated franchise Despicable Me in the wildly successful spin-off film Minions.

The Oscar-nominated actor's next films will see him reunite with two of his Crazy, »

Woody Allen Comedy Boots Bruce Willis, Brings in Steve Carell

28 August 2015 5:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, reports surfaced that Bruce Willis had parted ways with the 2016 Untitled Woody Allen Comedy, just days after he was spotted shooting scenes on the set in Los Angeles. Today we have word from Deadline that Steve Carell has signed on to replace him. The casting keeps the production on schedule, with filming also set to take place in New York after the L.A. shoot wraps.

We reported in March that Bruce Willis, Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg were the first three cast members to sign on for this untitled comedy movie. Bruce Willis reportedly dropped out due to scheduling conflicts with his Broadway stage play adaptation of Misery. However, there have been persisting rumors that claim the actor was actually fired by Woody Allen, because he didn't think he was right for the role.

The cast also includes Jeannie Berlin, Blake Lively, Parker Posey, Corey Stoll, »

Misery opens at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York City on October 22 for previews, and is booking until February 2016.

It looks like Woody Allen just fired Bruce Willis

25 August 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Bruce Willis has exited the Woody Allen film he was attached to and reports indicate that the prolific director may have fired him. There are some conflicting messages. Deadline initially reported that Willis left the film due to a scheduling conflict with his Broadway adaptation of Stephen King’s Misery. However, The Wrap’s Jeff Sneider tweeted that Willis was in fact fired. As Vulture points out, the actor was seen on set yesterday, in front of a camera, in costume, and by all appearances working with Jesse Eisenberg. He’d likely have known if there was a a legitimate scheduling conflict ahead of the start of production. It’s unclear why Willis was fired --  if he was -- but in response to Sneider's initial tweet Tom O’Leary said, ”Yep. Fired. A friend is on the film. Bruce couldn't remember a line. Cue cards were no help. Cast were losing their minds. »

Bruce Willis Exits Woody Allen’s Latest

25 August 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even though photos of Bruce Willis appeared online yesterday from the set of Woody Allen‘s latest production, a new report now indicates he’s since left the film. What could have gone so disastrously wrong in less than 24 hours?

Deadline dropped the scoop citing the old scheduling conflicts as the reason for his sudden departure. In an unusual twist of events, Willis’ desire to collaborate with Allen was “hobbled” by his commitment to a Broadway adaptation of the Stephen King novel Misery. As the action muscle had only shot a few scenes, Allen now has sufficient time to recast the part and resume shooting.

By the size of it, this brief bump in the road won’t present too much of a hurdle for the prolific director. If anything, he’ll likely secure a replacement very soon as his starry ensembles have proven over recent years — everyone’s dying to work with him. »

Woody Allen Might Have Fired Bruce Willis Yesterday

25 August 2015 9:22 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Bruce Willis has exited Woody Allen’s newest film, though the reasons why remain ambiguous. Deadline reported that Willis left due to a scheduling conflict, as he’s set to star in a Broadway adaptation of Stephen King’s Misery (he’s playing the writer, not the psychotic nurse), but we’re not sure we agree 100 percent with the site's police work: Willis was photographed on set yesterday, in costume, sitting in a car driven by Jesse Eisenberg, in front of a camera rig, doing what we can only assume is acting. Actors tend to notice scheduling conflicts before they begin filming. The Wrap’s Jeff Sneider* tweeted that Willis was fired, which wouldn't be unprecedented. Allen has swapped out actors before, most famously replacing Michael Keaton with Jeff Daniels in The Purple Rose of Cairo. Allen’s film, currently in production, features Blake Lively, Parker Posey, Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, »
