Ellen Pompeo Reveals Hollywood Ageism Kept Her From Leaving ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

27 July 2016 3:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ellen Pompeo is the title star of “Grey’s Anatomy,” but has she ever considered leaving the hit ABC medical drama? No — thanks to Hollywood ageism.

“My decision to stay on ‘Grey’s’ was based solely on age,” Pompeo said in a recent interview. “At 33, I was wise enough to know my clock was already ticking in Hollywood.”

Pompeo, 46, has starred as Dr. Meredith Grey on the Shonda Rhimes series for all twelve seasons and is confirmed to return to the upcoming thirteenth season this fall. She was 35 years old when the show debuted in 2005.

The actress says she got a “super late start” in the industry and admits had she been younger when she landed the starring role on the ABC medical drama, “I probably would have done my time, then gone out to search for other things.” She added, “[I] was definitely aware of how challenging it would be to find other roles in my late »

Tiff Lineup: 5 Reasons to Get Excited About the 2016 Program

26 July 2016 1:21 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the middle of summer, when moviegoing options are slim, it’s hard to visualize the sheer scope of films that will screen this fall at the Toronto International Film Festival. No single film commands all the buzz, nor can one lineup, and so the first big announcement — featuring the Galas and Special Presentations — can only begin to provide some insight into the titles worthy of anticipation.

Still, there’s a lot to dig through: Oscar hopefuls looking to gain momentum (“The Birth of a Nation,”  “Loving” and more detailed here); big-budget studio efforts hoping to earn some upscale cred (Peter Berg’s “Deepwater Horizon,” Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi “Arrival”); veteran filmmakers still pursuing the kind of topics that put them on the map (Oliver Stone’s “Snowden,” Mira Nair’s “Queen of Katwe”).

Beyond these obvious standouts, however, several titles from these programs hold a lot of potential for »

The Toronto International Film Festival announced a host of films that will be heading to Canada this September, including new offerings from Tom Ford, Denis Villeneuve, and Mira Nair. Kicking things off is Antoine Fuqua’s Denzel Washington- and Chris Pratt-starring remake of the The Magnificent Seven, which will anchor this year’s opening night. The film selection was announced at a press conference earlier today, which you can watch here:

The special presentation lineup will feature the likes of Damien Chazelle’s eagerly anticipated Whiplash follow-up La La Land, Ewan McGregor’s Philip Roth adaptation American Pastoral, young Barack Obama movie Barry, Rachel Weisz’s Holocaust denier drama Denial, and Mascots, which is the latest mockumentary from Christopher Guest. Among the more eyebrow-raising entries: King Of The Dancehall from Nick Cannon—yes, that one—and a film called Catfight starring Anne Heche, Sandra Oh, and Alicia Silverstone. »

Annecy Animation Film Festival: Gallic Gathering Runs Global Gamut

10 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Anyone wanting to take the measure of animation trends need only look at the range of films screening at Annecy.

The yearly festival in the French countryside is attracting a broad swath of animation, from big studio releases like Universal/Illumination’s “The Secret Life of Pets” and Disney/Pixar’s “Finding Dory” to personal, indie efforts of every length and style.

This year’s festival is placing special focus on French animators, for whom Annecy is a traditional mecca.

“The French were early adopters of computer animation,” says Illumination Entertainment chief Chris Meledandri, who’ll unveil “The Secret Life of Pets” at the festival. When that film’s credits roll, the role of French artists will be apparent, and their contributions have continued to rise since Universal/Illumination purchased the Paris-based studio Mac Guff in 2011. “Mac Guff started at 100 people and today it’s at 850,” says Meledandri.
