Friendly Reminder: Jeffrey Dean Morgan Co-Owns a Candy Shop With Paul Rudd

11 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Although you might be very angry with Jeffrey Dean Morgan after watching The Walking Dead on Sunday night (we won't disclose any spoilers in case you haven't watched), we want to remind you that he's a sweetie in real life...pun intended! He owns a candy shop with Paul Rudd, and there's no possible way you could you stay made at someone like that. Yes, the 50-year-old actor and the Ant-Man star are co-owners of Samuel's Sweet Shop in Rhinebeck, N.Y., but the back story that led to them purchasing the shop is even more heartwarming.  Morgan and Rudd had done some work together in Hudson Valley and had met the candy shop's previous owner, Ira Gutner—who bought »

Justin Theroux may have just won Throwback Thursday with a vintage photo from a film many may have forgotten about.

The actor posted an epic picture of him and costar Elizabeth Banks from their 2005 film The Baxter, in which they played teenagers in love.

Duncan Jones' 'Mute' Coming to Netflix

14 October 2016 1:23 AM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With 2009's Moon and 2011's Source Code, director Duncan Jones gave us two refreshingly clever and original sci-fi thrillers, winning the admiration of audiences and critics alike. It's not understatement, then, to say how surprising it was when Jones signed on to direct the movie adaptation of blockbuster video game, Warcraft. Whatever you thought about that movie, Jones' talent for brainy, entertaining science fiction is undeniable - lucky for us, he's returning to the genre with Mute, a new original film for Netflix. The movie, having commenced principal photography this week in Berlin, packs a hefty cast, with Alexander Skarsgård, Paul Rudd  and Justin Theroux starring. It will follow Leo (Skarsgård), a mute man searching for a missing person in the year 2052 in Berlin while dueling with two rogue villains played by Rudd and Theroux. Jones started developing the story twelve years ago and co-wrote the script with Michael Robert Johnson (Sherlock Holmes, »

Duncan Jones’ Long-Promised ‘Mute’ Adds Justin Theroux As a ‘Rogue Villain’

13 October 2016 7:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the years following his 2008 debut film “Moon,” director Duncan Jones has tried to get its spiritual sequel “Mute” off the ground. The film follows mute bartender Leo Beiler working in a futuristic Berlin in order to find the love of his life who has disappeared. As Leo’s search draws him deep into the city’s underworld, an odd pair of rogue American surgeons keep recurring and Leo has to figure out if they’re friends or enemies. Though Alexander Skarsgård and Paul Rudd have already joined the cast as Beiler and one of the Americans respectively, Variety reports that actor Justin Theroux has now rounded out the main trio, playing the other American surgeon.

‘Moon’ director Duncan Jones’ next sci-fi project is getting a Netflix release sooner than we’d hoped

12 October 2016 10:43 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Duncan Jones has been working on Mute for 12 years, and now its release is just about 12 months away (maybe less than!). It feels like we’ve been waiting forever for Mute — for me, ever since I raced to Google Jones’ in-the-works projects immediately after seeing his incredible feature directorial debut, Moon, at my hometown’s indie theater in 2009. In the interim, Jones released time loop movie Source Code and this year’s Warcraft, but Mute has been waiting on the back burner all the while. Now Mute has a Netflix release and an ambitious schedule: the streaming platform announced today that it’s distributing the film with a 2017 release date, and production in Berlin starts today. It’ll likely get a limited theatrical release simultaneous to hitting the streaming platform, similar to last year’s Beasts of No Nation. This news comes after Alexander Skarsgård spilled on the Netflix deal late last month. »

Justin Theroux Goes ‘Mute’ for Duncan Jones; Shane Black Finds ‘Predator’ Star

12 October 2016 8:51 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If it wasn’t for Chinese box-office returns, Duncan Jones‘ break into big-budget spectacle might have been for naught, career-wise, but Warcraft could prove a worthwhile exertion for whatever role it ultimately played in getting his passion project, Mute, off the ground. (We happened to enjoy the fantasy picture more than most, anyway.) Almost a year after Paul Rudd and Alexander Skarsgård joined its cast and not long after Netflix announced its handling of distribution, the picture’s started shooting — and, per Variety, has added Justin Theroux in an undisclosed role.

Details on his involvement will remain mum for now, though we’ve known for some time that Mute is set in Berlin circa 2052 and concerns Leo Beiler (Skarsgård), a mute bartender caught in a noir-esque, Blade Runner-inspired plot as he searches for a missing girlfriend. Two American surgeons (one is played by Rudd; can we assume Theroux fills the second part? »

Mute, The Latest From Duncan Jones, Adds Justin Theroux From The Leftovers

12 October 2016 7:56 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Duncan Jones seems to have a mystique about him, doesn't he? It might be because his father was one of the most enigmatic, revered, unpredictable artists ever, David Bowie. Or because his career began with a bang, with critically-acclaimed films like Moon and Source Code, which showed that he was no mere rookie director; They demonstrated that he had serious chops, and was a filmmaker to look out for. Right out of the gate, he was able to get stars like Sam Rockwell and Jake Gyllenhaal to sign on and buy into his vision for those early films.

Then Warcraft came out, and- despite the fact that it was a high-profile bomb at the domestic box office that received bad reviews- the young director managed to walk away virtually unscathed. In fact, his next project, Mute, is already gaining plenty of buzz. Netflix recently picked it up, and it's a »

Justin Theroux Bound For Duncan Jones’ In-Development Mute

12 October 2016 7:37 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Production continues apace on the Berlin set of Mute, but it appears Duncan Jones’ long-anticipated movie has made room in its cast for one more last-minute addition. Variety reports that Justin Theroux, star of The Girl on the Train and The Leftovers on HBO, has joined the Blade Runner-esque sci-fi pic in an undisclosed role. He’ll round out an ensemble that already boasts Alexander Skarsgård and Ant-Man himself, Paul Rudd.

Rooted in the same fictional universe as Moon, Jones has teased that Mute takes place in the year 2056 and will orbit around Leo Beiler (Skarsgård), a mute bartender making ends meet in a far-future Berlin. A missing girlfriend sends Beiler onto the busting streets of the German capital, where he comes into contact with Paul Rudd’s American surgeon. “It’s about a guy who was in an accident as a kid,” Skarsgård revealed previously. “He’s ex-Amish, »

Newswire: Justin Theroux quietly boards Duncan Jones’ Mute

12 October 2016 7:13 AM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Hot off playing an asshole of the highest order in The Girl On The Train, Justin Theroux will take on a role in Duncan Jones’ new film Mute, Variety reports. As we previously reported, Mute is set in Berlin 40 years in the future, and concerns a mute bartender (Alexander Skarsgård), who encounters a surgeon (Paul Rudd) in his quest to find his missing girlfriend. It’s unclear what Theroux’s character will be up to, but based on the cast so far it seems like the world of this film consists solely of ruggedly attractive white men. We do know, however, that the story will connect in some way or another to Jones’ Moon, a film far more beloved than his most recent effort, Warcraft. Moon’s star, Sam Rockwell, is also rumored to show up in Mute, which is a Netflix production that will have a limited theatrical »

Helen Mirren Helps Empower Children Who Stutter

11 October 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Imagine it: You’re standing in front of 850 people, and you can’t get your words out. The moment might provoke awkwardness or discomfort in a lot of audiences, but not the one that gathers together every year in support of Say, the Stuttering Assn. for the Young.

“There’s something very magical about an audience full of people just sitting, without any embarrassment, and waiting for the person onstage to say what they have to say,” says Helen Mirren of the annual gala. “It’s beautiful.”

Warwick Saint for Variety

Mirren got involved with Say after learning about the New York-based nonprofit from Broadway actress Kelli O’Hara. The two knew each other from the theater scene — they both won Tony Awards in 2015 — and O’Hara invited Mirren and her husband, director Taylor Hackford, to the organization’s fundraising gala. “I absolutely was blown away by it,” Mirren recalls. »
