Oscars move on as Craig Zadan and Neil Meron insist departure was their decision

26 March 2015 3:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As many expected, the big news out of last night's Academy Board of Governors meeting wasn't that the Best Picture nomination process would be changing, but that telecast producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan were out. The news broke in an "exclusive" spin session, er, interview with Deadline's Pete Hammond and the longtime producing partners insist the choice was theirs to make. In fact, the duo insist they had been thinking long and hard about coming back and that "if we were ever asked, whether we wanted to do it again."   Of course, they could have announced their "decision" before last month's Academy Award telecast or even in the weeks following. Instead, they tweeted cryptic comments and waited for their bosses to decide. Now that the Academy has decided to move on?  Well, let the spinning begin! "What people don’t know is that we signed a three-year deal with the Academy, »

Let's reflect on Amy Poehler's incredible work as Andy Richter's little sister

26 March 2015 1:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For no reason at all (other than the recent occasion of St. Patrick's Day maybe?), you just need to watch this hilarious bit from the late '90s with Amy Poehler guest-starring on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" as Andy Richter's insane, Conan-loving little sister. Poehler played versions of this character on Comedy Central's "Upright Citizens Brigade" and later on "SNL," but its raw power is most unbridled here. Remember how long sketches used to go on these shows? I miss it! »

Cannes: New Movies From Pixar, Woody Allen Expected at 68th Film Festival

26 March 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).

In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

Hulu Gives Series Pickup to Jason Katims Drama ‘The Way’

23 March 2015 9:22 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jason Katims is the latest A-list showrunner to set up shop at a digital outlet. Hulu has given a series order to “The Way,” a Universal TV drama about a family at the center of a controversial faith-based movement.

Katims will shepherd “Way,” created by Jessica Goldberg, who will serve as showrunner and exec producer with Katims and Michelle Lee of Katims’ True Jack Prods. Hulu has ordered 10 episodes.

Goldberg previously worked with Katims on “Parenthood,” the NBC family drama that wrapped its six-season run in January. Katims is also showrunner of the NBC comedy “About a Boy,” which is iffy for a third season renewal.

“Way” is billed as a “controversial, dangerous and thrilling world” with a family wrapped up in a faith movement and “struggling with relationships, marriage and power.”

Hulu’s Svod service has been slower out of the gate on the original content front than rivals Netflix and Amazon. »

Week in Review: Tommy Wiseau teases a prequel to ‘The Room’ in Reddit Ama

20 March 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Week in Review rounds up the past week in film news in one easy place. Check back this weekend for round-ups for TV and gaming.  

Oh Hai Tommy Wiseau. You’re making something of a comeback, aren’t you? Several months back we reported that you were working on a TV sitcom that you had written, directed, and starred in (naturally) called The Neighbors, but that in the same way that you would start throwing around a football and then completely forget about it a moment later, it seemed like that was just a whim. Sure enough, The Neighbors was picked up on Hulu, and this week you did a Reddit Ama to promote it. Looks like people are finally starting to recognize your genius.

Stepping away from my conversation with Mr. Wiseau for a moment, if you’ve ever actually gotten an opportunity to attend a late night screening »

George Clooney, Amy Poehler, Miley Cyrus & Maya Rudolph Join Bill Murray In Sofia Coppola's Christmas Special

19 March 2015 7:18 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Let's rewind a bit in case you forgot about this. Last fall, Bill Murray revealed he was re-teaming with "Lost In Translation" director Sofia Coppola for a TV Christmas special. “It’s not going to be live,” he said at the time. “We’re going to do it like a little movie. It won’t have a format, but it’s going to have music. It will have texture. It will have threads through it that are [being] writen. There will be prose.” And now, plot details have been revealed along with new cast members and this is shaping up to be something very... interesting... THR reveals that George Clooney, Amy Poehler, Miley Cyrus and Maya Rudolph have come aboard the project with Murray, and all will be playing themselves. Filming is already underway on the holiday tale that will see Murray trying to avoid a Hollywood figure who wants to represent the actor, »

He also has been working on Netflix’s new comedy, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which he attributes to the delay in the musical. “We are looking to do some actual solid readings coming around this summer,” he reveals. “The Kimmy Schmidt thing took a lot more time than we all thought, so it slowed some Mean Girls stuff down.”

Guys, a Mean Girls musical is happening. I repeat: a Mean Girls musical is happening. Talk of turning the 2004 film into a musical has been going on since 2013, but Tina Fey‘s husband Jeff Richmond just confirmed they’re working on the project together, and it’s almost finished.

The 30 Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt composer tells Yahoo! “there’s been quite a lot of progress” on the musical, and he’s working with Tony Award nominee Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde) on the lyrics. “We’ve been working for a long time now.
