Jennifer Lawrence Wants Boyhood Director For Her Next Movie

28 July 2015 2:25 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Though she is only 24 years old, Jennifer Lawrence has already had the opportunity to work with some truly amazing directors - and for her next film, The Rosie Project, she may get the chance to add another esteemed name to that list. According to reports, the movie is now eying Boyhood filmmaker Richard Linklater to helm. Deadline has the news on this development, but there's no mention of whether or not an offer has been extended to the Austin-based director yet or if negotiations have begun in earnest yet. Should he sign on, Linklater will be replacing A-listers Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who first became attached to The Rosie Project a little less than a year ago, and will be working with a script from duo Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber (The Spectacular Now, (500) Days of Summer). Based on the novel of the same name by Graeme Simsion, The »

Richard Linklater Might Direct Jennifer Lawrence in 'The Rosie Project'

28 July 2015 2:16 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

While The Rosie Project recently found its headlining star in Jennifer Lawrence, Sony has been in search of someone to fill the director's chair following the departure of directorial duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie). According to Deadline, Richard Linklater might be Sony's guy, or at least he is the studio's prime target. amz asin="1476729093" size="small"Adapted from Graeme Simsion's book of the same name, The Rosie Project tells the story of socially-awkward genetic professor Don Tillman, who comes up with a scientifically sound survey to find his perfect mate. Things get more complicated, however, when he meets Rosie Jarman (Lawrence), a woman who doesn't possess any of the qualities he's looking for yet becomes irresistible to him. For anyone who listens to Ted talks as much as I do, the Tillman character sounds an awful lot like a male version of Amy Webb, who »

Linklater to direct The Rosie Project with Jennifer Lawrence?

28 July 2015 4:48 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Deadline are reporting that Boyhood director Richard Linklater is in early talks to helm The Rosie Project with Jennifer Lawrence in the lead role.

The film “focuses on a genetics professor with limited social skills who thinks he has conjured a scientific survey to find a perfect mate. That goes awry when he meets Rosie (Lawrence), a mismatched woman who becomes irresistible to him.”

The film is based on Graeme Simsion’s novel of the same name, which originally had The Lego Movie helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller attached to direct. They’ve now found another project, so they’ve left the film, but Linklater is an exciting prospect.

The Rosie Project script is being written (500) Days Of Summer‘s Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber. Another exciting aspect.

Sony Pictures are financing and distributing.

Richard Linklater Considering The Rosie Project

27 July 2015 5:06 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Like Bob: The Musical (more on that one here), it appears the job of directing book adaptation The Rosie Project is now an open assignment, since Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who had been developing it, are now throwing their full concentration towards a Han Solo film. So who could take over the job of directing Jennifer Lawrence in the lead? Sony wants Boyhood’s Richard Linklater to do it.Written by Graham Simison, the book tells the story of professor Don Tillman, a genetics expert on the Asperger’s scale who never seems to be able to land a second date. He starts The Wife Project, working up a questionnaire to find the perfect partner, but is instead entranced by the free-spirited Rosie (Lawrence), who matches none of his criteria but might just be his soul mate. The book has been big both here and in Australia where it's set, »

Richard Linklater Frontrunner To Direct 'The Rosie Project' Starring Jennifer Lawrence

27 July 2015 1:44 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While Richard Linklater has always bounced back and forth between studio projects and indie movies, you have to go back to 2005's "Bad News Bears" to find his last full-fledged picture for a major Hollywood outlet (not counting indie arms). However, in the wake of the success of "Boyhood," it is interesting to see how the studios are coming back to Linklater. Paramount is distributing this next movie, which was just dated for spring 2016, and now Sony is eyeballing the filmmaker. Deadline reports that Linklater is the frontrunner to direct "The Rosie Project" starring Jennifer Lawrence. Phil Lord and Chris Miller were originally attached before they got too busy conquering Hollywood, and I have to say, this seems a little safe and dull for Linklater. Based on Graeme Simsion's bestselling book, with a script by  Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber ("The Spectacular Now," "The Fault In Our »

Jennifer Lawrence’s ‘Rosie Project’ Eyes Director Richard Linklater

27 July 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony is eyeing “Boyhood” director Richard Linklater to helm Jennifer Lawrence’s dramedy “The Rosie Project.”

The movie, based on the Graeme Simsion novel, centers on a socially awkward genetics professor who devises a science-based survey to find the perfect mate — only to see those theories splintered when he meets the spontaneous Rosie Jarman (played by Lawrence), who possesses the opposite qualities.

Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, who teamed on “(500) Days of Summer,” have revised Simsion’s  adaptation of the novel. “The Lego Movie” co-directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were initially interested, but have opted to take on Disney’s Han Solo “Star Wars” standalone movie.

Sony acquired the film rights to “The Rosie Project” last year and set it up with Sony-based producers Matt Tolmach and Michael Costigan.

Paramount announced Monday that it will release Linklater’s baseball comedy — formerly titled “That’s What I’m Talking About »

Richard Linklater Frontrunner To Direct Jennifer Lawrence In The Rosie Project

27 July 2015 1:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Deadline is reporting today that Boyhood helmer Richard Linklater, nominated for the Best Director Oscar last year, is Sony Pictures’ top pick to direct Jennifer Lawrence in The Rosie Project.

Discussions are just getting under way, but Linklater’s schedule is currently open and the studio has been looking to attract a big name for the gig ever since The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller left the project for a Star Wars spinoff focusing on a young Han Solo.

The adaptation of Graeme Simison’s novel centers on a genetics professor who’s more adept at navigating complex scientific data collections than his social life. When he comes up with a scientific survey designed to find him his perfect mate, the professor believes he’s sidestepped the risks that come with dating. His world gets shaken up, however, when he falls hard for a woman named Rosie »

Richard Linklater May Join Jennifer Lawrence for 'The Rosie Project'

27 July 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

One of Jennifer Lawrence's next films may have set its sights on an Oscar-nominated director.

According to Deadline, "Boyhood"'s Richard Linklater is the top choice to helm "The Rosie Project," in which Lawrence plays the titular object of the protagonist's affections. Linklater would replace previous "Rosie" helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who left the flick after striking a deal to make the recently-announced Han Solo-centric "Star Wars" prequel.

"Rosie," based on the novel by Graeme Simsion, focuses on an eccentric genetics professor who creates a scientific survey to make up for his lack of social skills and find the perfect love match. He then meets Rosie (Lawrence), who doesn't meet any of his qualifications, but bewitches him nonetheless.

Fresh off the success of "Boyhood," Linklater has been busy lately, working on a comedy about baseball players that's been described as a spiritual successor to his early classic, »

Wait! Whatc Sony Has Greenlit an Emoji Moviec

22 July 2015 8:57 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Sony Pictures Animation must certainly be enjoying how people are taking in the Pac-Man-heavy marketing for this weeks' Pixels (and, to the film's mild credit, he is the best part of it), because the suits in charge have ponied up the near seven figures to have some other yellow-faced friends transition to the big screen. In a heated three-studio audition, Sony won the right to have their banner placed in front of an Emoji movie. With Warner Bros and Paramount reported to be the other two studios vying to get the expressive, social media/text message-based personalities their cinematic due, it's apparently a ripe opportunity to take this property (c) to the next level, as the Japan-hatched ideograms don't subside themselves to any pesky rights, making them essentially free-reign when it comes to marketing, promoting and all that jazz. Does it matter that they'll have to take the extra route »

Sos This Week #16: Filling In The Blanks

19 July 2015 10:01 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It seems like every movie franchise is expanding with sequels, prequels, and anthology films. Every character must be explained and every moment must be felt for us to truly know it happened. We take a look at some of the upcoming prequels, such as the Han Solo solo film that The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are directing, and why it may not be entirely necessary to have these films that focus on the details of characters that we learned to love without much explanation.

Watch: Excellent Video Essay On 'Looney Tunes' Animation Legend Chuck Jones

17 July 2015 2:23 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Every great animation director, from Miyazaki to John Lasseter and Pete Docter, to Phil Lord and Chris Miller, owes a little something to Chuck Jones. If the name isn’t familiar — and it should be — Jones was an animator, writer, producer and director who won three Oscars (plus an honorary one) and picked up a further five nominations for his work, who made his name working on the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series for Warner Bros, creating characters like Marvin The Martian, Pepe LePew, Wile E. Coyote and The Road Runner, and making some of the finest hours of characters like Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck.  Jones was fired from Warner Bros in the early 1960s, and continued to do some fine work, including on Tom & Jerry and the famous “Grinch Who Stole Christmas” TV special, before returning to Warner Bros and Looney Tunes near the end of his life  - for example, »

Michael Cera Will Play Robin in 'Lego Batman' Movie

17 July 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Batman has found his sidekick: Michael Cera is set to voice Robin in the upcoming "Lego Batman" movie.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that Cera has just finalized a deal to play the plastic version of the comic character, alongside Will Arnett's titular hero. Arnett is reprising his role from 2014 hit "The Lego Movie," which is being spun off into a tale centered around his brooding Batman.

While there's no plot yet for "Lego Batman," the flick will retain much of the creative team that made the first flick so fun. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are producing the spinoff, and "Lego Movie" animation supervisor Chris McKay is directing. Screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith is penning the script.

"Lego Batman" will also be a reunion for Arnett and Cera, who starred together on "Arrested Development." That series is due for another round of episodes on Netflix sometime next year, though no »

The Lego Batman Movie: Michael Cera is Robin

16 July 2015 10:27 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Cera is set to be Robin to Will Arnett's Batman...

The last time we saw Batman's crimefighting sidekick, Robin, on the big screen things didn't go well. Chris O'Donnell realised the role in two Joel Schumacher-directed Batman films in the 1990s, and it would be fair to say that he wasn't in danger of winning too many awards for his take on the character.

Michael Cera, however, we suspect may fare better. He's lending his voice to the character of Robin in the upcoming The Lego Batman Movie, which sees Will Arnett voicing Batman, as he did in The Lego Movie.

Chris McKay is directing the new movie, with Seth Grahame-Smith having penned the screenplay for it.

Thus far, no plot details for the film have been released. We do know that The Lego Movie's Chris Miller and Phil Lord are overseeing the project, having previously »

Michael Cera Voicing Lego Batman's Robin

16 July 2015 5:45 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The team behind The Lego Movie’s Lego Batman spin-off (currently known, somewhat logically as Lego Batman), already have Will Arnett back as the Dark Knight. So who would you cast as his Robin? They've picked his on-screen Arrested Development nephew, of course, with Michael Cera taking on the role. Cera feels like the perfect choice for this one, and we can already imagine his Robin as a nerdy, nervy and slightly whiny take on Bruce Wayne’s ward, most likely a little sick of his boss’s arrogant style and tired of his own sidekick status. The people in charge of bringing the new film to life include Seth Grahame-Smith on script duty and Chris McKay, animation co-director/editor on Lego, directing. Franchise overlords Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are producing. Promising to cover all aspects of the character’s long history, Lego Batman will be with us on February 10, 2017. In related Cera news, »

Emmys: Only Three Women Nominated in Top Writer-Director Categories

16 July 2015 3:25 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Out of the 23 people nominated for writing or directing Emmys in the top comedy and drama series races, only three are women: “Transparent’s” Jill Soloway, “Mad Men’s” Semi Chellas and “Homeland’s” Lesli Linka Glatter.

Despite what the Academy described as a 60% increase in the number of women writing and directing nominees from last year, their numbers in the most prominent series categories dropped by two from last year.

Women were represented in the longform field with Dee Rees grabbing writing and directing mentions for HBO’s Bessie Smith biopic “Bessie.” Lisa Cholodenko and Jane Anderson were nommed for directing and writing HBO’s miniseries “Olive Kitteridge.” And Amy Schumer was recognized for variety series directing, along with Ryan McFaul, for the “12 Angry Men” episode of Comedy Central’s “Inside Amy Schumer.” There are also numerous women among the writing staffs nominated for variety series and specials.
