Steven Soderbergh explains why he came out of retirement for Logan Lucky

25 April 2017 8:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite announcing his retirement from feature directing following 2013’s Side Effects and Behind the Candelabra, filmmaker Steven Soderbergh is back behind the camera this year for the heist caper Logan Lucky, and during an interview with Entertainment Weekly he has explained what drew him to this latest film.

“I was sitting there on [The Knick] set, realizing that this is the job that I should be doing,” said Soderbergh. “This is my job. I should be directing stuff. Nobody’s waiting around for my paintings. So I kind of flipped a switch. I got reconnected with what I like about the job… I wasn’t really thinking about movies… until this script came in over the transom. If it hadn’t, I think everything would be TV oriented.”

“On the most obvious level, it’s the complete inversion of an Ocean’s movie,” he continued. “It’s an anti-glam version of an Ocean’s movie. »

Steven Soderbergh is back — although he never really went away. The filmmaker hasn’t helmed a movie since 2013’s Behind the Candelabra, but that didn’t stop him from directing 20 episodes of The Knick on Cinemax and serving as executive producer on Starz’s The Girlfriend Experience and Amazon’s Red Oaks.

Now Soderbergh is returning to the big screen with Logan Lucky, a heist film starring Adam Driver, Channing Tatum, Seth MacFarlane, Daniel Craig, Katie Holmes, Hilary Swank, Katherine Waterston and Sebastian Stan, revolving around the Coca-Cola 600, an annual 600-mile Nascar race held at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina during Memorial Day weekend.

Soderbergh sat down with Entertainment Weekly and dropped several details about the film (along with a new photo), including what drew him back to filmmaking and the unique way Logan Lucky will be distributed, via Bleecker Street and Soderbergh’s own Fingerprint Releasing. “I »

Bill O’Reilly Harassment Allegations: The Murdochs Must Take Action to Preserve Fox’s Legacy

7 April 2017 3:44 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Even with the defection of more than 50 advertisers, Bill O’Reilly is weathering his latest sexual-harassment scandal. Ratings for “The O’Reilly Factor” are up, his new book “Old School” is a bestseller, and he just signed a rich new deal with Fox News Channel.

That makes this an even tougher test for corporate parent 21st Century Fox, and leaders James and Lachlan Murdoch. While O’Reilly is apparently immune to dishonor (and to fleeing sponsors, as long as his faithful viewers tune in), the corporation’s reputation is on the line. And the Murdochs haven’t done much to condemn the allegations of sexual harassment, or detail how they plan to expand efforts to make sure employees, and particularly women, feel safe in the workplace. A hotline isn’t enough.

Ironically, the company has recently made great strides in naming women to high-profile posts on the film side. Stacey Snider »

It’s only April, but already, 2017 has brought with it some terrific films and TV shows, several of which will be receiving honors from MTV, as the company looks to shower praise upon the best of the best with their annual awards show, which has received a name change.

MTV Movie & TV Awards Nominations Full List: ‘Get Out’ Tops Nominees; Show Goes Gender-Blind for Acting

6 April 2017 9:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The first-ever MTV Movie & TV Awards is already setting itself apart from the other awards ceremonies with two bold moves. The first is to go gender-blind when it comes to the acting categories; men and women won’t be segregated, but rather in competition with each other. That means you’ll get some very interesting matchups like “Atlanta’s” Donald Glover taking on the Khaleesi herself, Emilia Clarke from “Game of Thrones.”

Combining the gendered categories has been a debate for years, especially when it comes to performance-based achievements. The Television Critics Association doesn’t make a gendered distinction, instead lauding someone by genre such as Individual Achievement in Comedy. Of the bigger awards shows, the Grammys ditched the gendered categories a few years ago, opting for unisex titles such as Best Pop Solo Performance.

Netflix Cartoons to Get Drunk on History

31 March 2017 2:05 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Streaming overlords sign Channing Tatum to teach us something.

Ever since animation has been targeted at children, adults have thought it would be really cool if it was aimed at them instead. Once regulated to a late-night programming block of the Cartoon Network and a sub-genre of pornography, adult animated series are everywhere and chock full of the kinds of celebrities who were once called upon only to phone in performances on things like Shark Tale every so often. Adam Reed’s Archer has become a sweet moneymaker on FX and Raphael Bob-Waksberg Bojack Horseman has done massive inroads to make Netflix seem hip and with it. Which is probably why Netflix, per Deadline, has just signed on the voice of Channing Tatum to star in an animated movie penned by Dave Callaham, proud writer of “Untitled Zombieland Sequel,” which has yet to hit theaters. His feature-length movie for Netflix will be called America: The Motion Picture »
