John Turturro replaces Robert De Niro in HBO's 'Criminal Justice'

22 April 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

John Turturro has replaced Robert De Niro as the star of Criminal Justice, the seven-hour HBO miniseries that was once conceived as a James Gandolfini vehicle. Based on a 2008 BBC drama of the same name, Justice was slated to be The Sopranos’ star’s high-profile return to an HBO series, and he had filmed the pilot before he died last June. HBO recruited De Niro in September to assume the lead role, but as the Hollywood Reporter initially wrote, he’s now out, as is his Tribeca Films production company.

Turturro will play Jack Stone, an unscrupulous New York City »

John Turturro Replacing Robert De Niro In Criminal Justice

21 April 2014 10:26 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

HBO’s seven hour miniseries, Criminal Justice, is going through a bit of a casting change today. Originally, James Gandolfini was set for the lead role, that of Jack Stone. He appeared in the pilot but after his tragic death, he was replaced by Robert De Niro. Now, De Niro has dropped out due to scheduling conflicts and John Turturro has stepped in to fill his shoes.

Based on Peter Moffat’s BBC series and co-written by Richard Price (The Wire), Criminal Justice follows Stone, a NYC attorney who “gets in over-his-head when he takes on the case of a Pakistani accused of murdering a girl on the Upper West Side.” Of course, not everything is as it seems and Stone soon finds himself in a world of trouble.

For those who are wondering, HBO will not air the pilot episode with Gandolfini in it. Instead, they’ll restart and »

John Turturro Takes James Gandolfini Role In 'Criminal Justice' After Robert De Niro Exits

21 April 2014 3:20 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When James Gandolofini suddenly and sadly passed away last year, a project that was unfortunately left in the lurch was HBO's "Criminal Justice." The show had already been through some development hurdles, with the network originally passing on the project, but later coming back on board when it was retooled as a limited series. And then things looked even better when Robert De Niro signed up to replace Gandolfini in the fall, but it looks like there's another casting switcheroo happening. De Niro has exited the show citing schedule problems, but the always reliable John  Turturro has stepped into the leading role. Penned by Richard Price ("Clockers," "The Wire"), with Steven Zaillian producing and directing the pilot of the seven-hour series, the remake of the BBC show will find Turturro playing an ambulance-chasing New York City attorney who decides to defend a Pakistani man accused of murdering a girl from »

John Turturro To Replace Robert De Niro As James Gandolfini’s Successor In HBO Mini ‘Criminal Justice’

21 April 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

There is a casting change on HBO‘s miniseries Criminal Justice, the passion project of the late James Gandolfini. John Turturro has stepped in to play the role of Jack Stone, originally played by Gandolfini in the pilot. Turturro replaces Robert De Niro who committed to succeeding the beloved Sopranos star last fall but has pulled out because of scheduling reasons.

Richard Price wrote the adaptation with Steven Zaillian directing.  On the mini, produced by HBO in association with BBC Worldwide Prods. and Film Rites and Tribeca Films, Turturro joins originally cast Riz Ahmed, Bill Camp, Payman Maadi and Poorna Jagannathan. The New York crime story centers on Jack Stone, an ambulance-chasing New York City attorney who gets in over-his-head when he takes on the case of a Pakistani (Ahmed »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #124. Daniel Espinosa’s Child 44

13 February 2014 7:30 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Child 44

Director: Daniel Espinosa

Writers: Richard Price

Producer: Summit Entertainment, Worldview Entertainment, Etalon Film, Scott Free Productions, Stillking Films

U.S. Distributor: Summit Ent/Lionsgate

Cast: Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman, Joel Kinnaman, Vincent Cassel, Jason Clarke, Paddy Considine

Based on the first novel from a popular trilogy, this sounds like a melding of John Le Carre and Stieg Larsson (of course, mainplayers Rapace and Oldman might be responsible for that ambiance as well). Helmed by Swedish director Daniel Espinosa, who received wide acclaim with his 2010 film, Easy Money, we’re hoping this gets more traction than his 2012 English language debut, Safe House. A killer (and very masculine) cast should make this one to watch for, though screenwriter Richard Price can be a bit iffy. He’s been working television since his last feature screenplay, which was 2006’s Freedomland…but we’re hoping this is the same caliber »

Six of the Best: The Directors – Spike Lee

9 January 2014 5:12 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Always outspoken, determined and confident – Spike Lee has been one of the most active and influential artists making movies in America for the past thirty years. Although it is important to mention his influence as an African-American filmmaker, he also stamped a style and tempo which snapped at the heels of narrative with colour, energy and bite. He has made films that were unanimously praised, caused debate and even ones that have been generally panned – but his films are never ignored.

When Sidney Poitier slapped actor Larry Gates in the 1967 film In the Heat of the Night, it was seminal – one of the first instances of a black man striking a white man on the silver screen. It jolted people and it mirrored a social spirit of a nation in a split instance, a way that cinema only can. But the man behind the camera, in the producers chair and »
