Maisie Williams In Talks For Lead Role In The Last Of Us Adaptation

25 July 2014 1:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Last Of Us wowed gamers worldwide when it was first released last June for the PS3, impressing with its tense, bleak tone and cinematic narrative. Now, a feature film adaptation in the works over at Screen Gems, with Evil Dead filmmaker Sam Raimi producing and the game’s creative director/screenwriter Neil Druckmann involved, and there’s no bigger question on fans’ minds than which actors will take on the lead roles of Joel and Ellie, two survivors who band together to survive while travelling across the dangerous, post-apocalyptic ruins of the United States.

Today, at Comic-Con, Druckmann revealed that, though no one has been cast just yet, Maisie Williams, the young actress who plays Arya Stark on HBO’s Game of Thrones, is in talks to take on the role of teenage Ellie. Williams has been a fan favorite choice for a while, and news that Druckmann and »

TV on Tap: Dermot Mulroney Gets “Shameless,” “Scandal” Won’t Last Eight Seasons and “The Big Bang Theory” Still Negotiating Cast Contracts

17 July 2014 5:42 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

HBO is adapting Broadway play All the Way as a movie. Bryan Cranston, who won a Tony for his portrayal as President Lyndon Johnson, will reprise his role. The story follow Johnson in the year after Kennedy‘s assassination.

Dermot Mulroney has signed up for a story arc on Shameless as Fiona‘s latest suitor. While he’ll play a new character, TVLine describes him as basically replacing the character that was played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

Dermot Mulroney, not to be confused with the guy who was on American Horror Story.

Former Daily Show showrunner Rory Albanese — who worked on the show for 14 years — is returning to Comedy Central’s late night lineup. He’ll be in charge of the upcoming Minority Report, the show that will replace The Colbert Report. That sounds like a pretty promising sign.

The Daily Beast says that Barbara Walters was “enthusiastic” about »

Shameless Taps Dermot Mulroney as Fiona's Season 5 Love Interest

16 July 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Is Shameless‘ Fiona Gallagher angling to be the next Bachelorette?

The Showtime dramedy has tapped Dermot Mulroney for a major Season 5 arc as a potential suitor for Emmy Rossum’s character, according to the network.

Mulroney, who was last seen on NBC’s ill-fated Crisis, will recur as “ex-bad boy and recovering addict” Sean Pierce, Fiona’s manager at Patsy’s Pies — where she began working in the Season 4 finale. Throughout the season-long arc, Sean will take an interest in Fiona »

Dermot Mulroney to join 'Shameless' for season 5

16 July 2014 2:11 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Dylan McDermott is coming to "Shameless"! Wait, that's not right. Derbel McDillett is coming to "Shameless"! Also not right. Dermot Mulroney is coming to "Shameless!" That's the one. The frequently-confused-for-McDermott actor will be joining the fifth season of Showtime's acclaimed series, playing "ex-bad boy and recovering addict Sean Pierce," who will be the new manager at the diner diner where Emmy Rossum's Fiona got a job at in last season's finale. Though it will be a new character, he's essentially filling the slot of Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who was introduced in that exact capacity (and with that history) in the season 4 finale. It's a shame Morgan couldn't stick around, given how good he was in that episode (and how refreshing it was to see him in full character actor mode for the first time in a while), but I suppose the same diner can't employ two different ex-bad boy recovering addicts in managerial capacities. »

But when he kills the man who killed his family, it raises the anger and revenge of the murderer's brother Delarue (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).

With Horror TV Taking Over Networks, Jerry Asks: How About A Hideaway Series?

1 July 2014 3:53 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

While horror is dominating Television these days in everything from Hannibal, Penny Dreadful, and Bates Motel already airing, the upcoming series of Del Toro’s The Strain set to debut soon and god knows how many other shows being developed as I write this, I often ask myself: “Wouldn’t it be nice if this or that would be made into a series?”. With it being abundantly clear that execs are taking the turning of popular films and franchises into decent or downright awesome series (Anybody see Fargo? Wow), there are a handful of books and/or films that I think warrant a solid weekly, if not limited series run on TV. One example is the 1995 film adaption of my favorite Dean Koontz book of all time, his 1992 novel, Hideaway.

Hideaway tells the story of Hatch Harrison (played by Jeff Goldblum in the film), an antiques dealer, who gets into »

Watch: 6 Clips From 'The Salvation' Starring Mads Mikkelsen & Eva Green Plus Soundtrack Song & More

4 June 2014 6:44 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

What happens when you put together Mads Mikkelsen and Eva Green in a western? Well, you capture our attention, that's for sure. And while our Jessica Kiang didn't quite fall for "The Salvation" at Cannes—calling it in her review a genre movie that's "so faithful as to veer dangerously close to pastiche"—it's still got enough intriguing ingredients to make it one the rest of us will catch up with anyway, if only to see Mikkelsen playing cowboy. Co-starring Jeffrey Dean MorganJonathan PryceEric Cantona and Mikael Persbrandt, and directed by Kristian Levring, the film follows a mild-mannered settler, new to America, who's out for blood when a gang leader murders his wife and child. And these six new clips from the movie are extensive and perhaps spoilery, going deep into the movie, and circling around what seems to be some pretty major plot points. So fair warning. »

Cannes: IFC Films in Negotiations to Acquire Josh Charles Starrer ‘Bird People’ (Exclusive)

25 May 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris– IFC Films is in advanced negotiations to acquire the rights to “Bird People,” Pascale Ferran’s Un Certain Regard player  that stars “The Good Wife’s” Josh Charles as an American business traveler with a 24-hour delay in Paris.

Paris-based Films Distribution handles international sales on the film – one of the arthouse standouts of the official selection — and is currently negotiating the sale to the U.S..

The story, set almost exclusively inside the Hilton hotel near Charles de Gaulle Airport, is what Variety critic Peter Debruge called “an unlikely Cinderella story around its magical midway point.”

Ferran, who won Cannes’ Camera d’Or for her 1994 debut, “Petits arrangements avec les morts,”  penned the screenplay of “Bird People” with Guillaume Breaud.

Pic is produced by Denis Freyd at Archipel 35, the well-established co-production company of Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne’s “Two Days, One Night,” which played in competition.

Cannes 2014: The Salvation Review

21 May 2014 2:15 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Danish director Kristian Levring has already delved into the past, with his Malaysian-set period piece The Intended. Whereas that film was a languid, tropical piece, The Salvation is action-packed and arid.

The American West in the 1870s: Jon (Mads Mikkelsen) is at the train station to pick up his wife and young son, who he hasn’t seen in seven years. With him is his brother Peter (Mikael Persbrandt), who won’t be journeying on the stagecoach with the family, preferring to let his hair down in town. As soon as the journey gets underway the situation precipitates. Jon is hurled from the coach and as he follows its path he stumbles across the body of his son. When he reaches the stagecoach and kills the two men, it is too late: his wife has also been murdered. But Jon has killed the wrong man. He’s the brother of Delarue (Jeffrey Dean Morgan, »

Jonas Cuarón's 'Forsaken' A 'Gravity' Prequel?

20 May 2014 9:47 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Another day, another Cuarón story. Makes sense, considering the steady rise of the Mexican filmmaker's Hollywood stock over the years. But this time, we're not talking about Alfonso. We're talking about his son, Jonás. See, Jonás became a hot commodity himself ever since he co-wrote Gravity with his papa. We know he's working on a big budget film about Atlantis, but he's also directing a smaller film called Forsaken.

The film stars Gael Garcia Bernal, and it's a chase thriller about a man trekking through the Sonora desert trying to get into the United States, only to have his fellow travelers picked off one by one by gunmen. The film's story of survival, set in an utterly bleak situation, may seem thematically similar to Gravity, and there may be a reason for that.

Producer Stuart Ford (Dredd) spoke about the film about at Cannes, to Variety, where he revealed where »
