Watch: Dennis Quaid's Full Freak Out Video Rages Online

15 April 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A couple of days ago, the internet lighted up when it appeared that Dennis Quaid was joining the ranks of Christian Bale and David O. Russell for full blown, on-set rants. A clip of the actor in full freak out mode went viral with many wondering what the story behind the video was. Well, the answer is here. Read More: Dennis Quaid & Director Lee Sternthal Talk Shooting Digitally Sorry, this isn't a juicy story of a movie production gone awry. Rather, it's a Funny Or Die video in which Quaid loses his cool when a series of increasingly absurd interruptions keep ruining his takes. Eventually, he totally loses it, with a series of sight gags and puns to top it all off. Silly and ridiculous stuff, so watch below. »

Listen: Jon Brion Talks The Tyranny Of Temp Film Scores & More In Fascinating 1 Hour Talk

15 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Of all the left-field composers out there — typically musicians who don’t follow the traditional rules of film composing — if Jon Brion isn’t at the very top, he’s very damn close. The musician, composer, producer (who has worked with folks like Fiona Apple, Kanye West, Of MontrealElliott Smith and more) has been tapped by filmmakers like Paul Thomas Anderson (“Magnolia,” “Punch Drunk Love”), Michel Gondry (“Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind”), David O. Russell (“I Heart Huckabees”), Charlie Kaufman (“Synechdoche, New York”), Miranda July (“The Future”) and more. In recent years he’s been moving towards comedies, especially for the films of Adam McKay (“The Other Guys,” “Step Brothers”), Vince Vaughn (“The Break-Up,” “Delivery Man”) and Judd Apatow. Brion scored “Funny People,” “This Is 40,” and has also written the music for the upcoming “Trainwreck” film starring Amy Schumer. The bête noir of all film composers is temp music — the music a. »

Dennis Quaid Explodes on Set at Dopey the Dick

14 April 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

A video of Dennis Quaid going ballistic on set has gone viral along with questions over its legitimacy as many are believing this to be yet another Jimmy Kimmel-esque prank. The video finds Quaid questioning the professionalism of the set, which he would seem to be well within reason to criticize if there is someone on said set recording via a cell phone camera. We can only assume Quaid is yelling at the director and complaining about commotion in the background while he's trying to perform and it must take quite a bit to get someone to this level of frustration, that is if it's real. This, obviously, isn't the first time we've seen/heard something like this as Christian Bale was caught in a similar situation during the filming of Terminator Salvation and we're all familiar with Lily Tomlin's back-and-forth with David O. Russell on the set of I Heart Huckabees. »

Dennis Quaid -- Loses His Mind On Movie Set ... 'I Have a Bunch of Pussies Staring at Me!' (Video)

14 April 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Dennis Quaid went absolutely berserk on the set of a movie ... calling his co-workers unprofessional zombies, pussies, and more -- or so it seems based on a video that surfaced on the Internet. The video starts with Quaid chewing out someone for walking on set while he's running a line -- "I can't even get a line out until dopey the d**k starts whispering in your ear, you're not even watching anymore."

Ridley Scott and “The Martian”: Early Oscar Predictions for April

10 April 2015 9:20 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

After taking the month of March off in terms of Oscar predictions, I’m back taking a new look at what the Academy could do with this upcoming year in film. Again, it’s super early and probably silly to be focusing in on them like I am currently, but it’s also fun and gives us an idea of what movies to potentially look forward to. I’m keeping it mostly short and sweet today, just basically posting an update to the predictions (with a slight detour to discuss one contender), plus the next in line list that I know is popular as well. All of this can and likely will change in the near future, possibly even in the summer when things first begin to shape up, so stay tuned on that front. For now, enjoy these Academy Award predictions and cross your fingers that we have a good year for prestige films. »

No joke: Vin Diesel, Chris Tucker set for Ang Lee's 'Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk'

8 April 2015 10:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Vin Diesel is jumping back into the prestige movie world.  And, yes, that's "back."  Diesel has made his name in the "Fast and Furious" and Riddick franchises, but many forget he actually has a Steven Spielberg movie on his resume ("Saving Private Ryan").  He also starred in the cult drama "Boiler Room" and voiced the title character in the classic animated film "The Iron Giant."  What many have already forgotten, however, is that Diesel earned the best reviews of his career in Sidney Lumet's 2006 courtroom drama "Find Me Guilty."  Now, Diesel is getting serious again by teaming up with another cinematic master, Ang Lee. According to Deadline, Lee has cast Diesel and Chris Tucker to star in his adaptation of Ben Fountain's novel "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk."  The drama focuses on a group of American soldiers, including Lynn, who are being celebrated for their heroism during the Iraq War. »

Vin Diesel and Chris Tucker Team Up for Billy Lynn’S Long Halftime Walk

8 April 2015 4:38 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I had a blind spot for Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk until today but now I'm finally getting clued into this crazy Ang Lee (The Ice Storm, Hulk) directed project via the announcement that Vin Diesel and the ever elusive Chris Tucker have joined the cast. Based on the Ben Fountain novel of the same name, the film is an Iraq War satire that takes place in Texas and revolves around the surviving members of a squad of soldiers who, while preparing to return to Iraq, embark on a media-intensive “Victory Tour” at Texas Stadium. Most of the story takes place on the day of their appearance at the stadium, with flashbacks scattered throughout. The cast for this one is all over the place in a fairly great way and includes Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund, and Steve Martin. Simon Beaufoy will adapt Fountain's book for the screen. Tucker is a virtual ghost these days, »

Jason Schwartzman Says He Almost Starred In Another David O. Russell Film That Was Canceled Last Minute

6 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Jason Schwartzman made the transition that some teen actors can’t broker. His first film, Wes Anderson's "Rushmore," was a big hit and launched his career. But the years after were a bit lean and or unremarkable. It wasn’t until six years later, with David O. Russell’s “I Heart Huckabees,” that the actor proved he was more than a one-hit wonder (though those that remember know he was pretty hilarious in his small “Cq” role). On a Marc Maron podcast from earlier this year, the actor revealed that before ‘Huckabees’ he almost starred in another David O. Russell movie, an unnamed mystery film that Schwartzman wrote some of the music score for, and that the director pulled the plug on very shortly before filming was set to begin. “Before [‘Huckabees’] there was another movie we were supposed to make,” he explained. “Right after ‘Rushmore’ I met him and he said, »

She was one of Best Actress Oscar winner Julianne Moore's daughters in Wash Westmoreland and the recently deceased Richard Glatzer's Alzheimer's drama Still Alice.

'American Hustle' Producers Can't Nuke Defamation Lawsuit

2 April 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Paul Brodeur, a science writer who claims he was defamed by something Jennifer Lawrence said in David O. Russell's 2013 film American Hustle, has survived an attempt to knock out his $1 million lawsuit on First Amendment grounds. In the movie, Lawrence plays a character named Rosalyn who tells her husband, played by Christian Bale, that microwaves take the nutrition out of food. After Bale's character responds, "That's bullshit," Rosalyn shows him a magazine and says, "It's not bullshit. I read it in an article. Look, by Paul Brodeur." Brodeur says that during the late 1970s, when the

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to Hit Theaters on February 19th, 2016

31 March 2015 12:11 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Like the living dead that roam the 19th-century English countryside of its story, the movie adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has refused to die, shambling on through multiple director and lead actor changes over the past several years to finally begin filming last September. Now we know when to expect to see the living dead of Meryton, as an official release date for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has now been set for early next year.

According to Box Office Mojo, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will hit theaters on February 19th, 2016, from Sony/Screen Gems.

In the film, “the heroine, Liz Bennett (James), is pressured by her family to marry into a wealthy upper-class home but chafes at the stiff social mores of Victorian England. Instead, she feels that she should help defend the countryside against the onslaught of a horrifying zombie plague.”

What Really Happened to 'Serena,' Starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence

29 March 2015 10:49 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Back in 2012, after Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence co-starred in David O. Russell's Oscar-winning "Silver Linings Playbook" and before its follow-up "American Hustle," the duo shot period drama "Serena," which was once going to star Angelina Jolie with director Darren Aronofsky. Lawrence recommended Cooper and talked him into joining her on the project.  Oscar-winning Danish auteur Susanne Bier ("A Better World") took the helm for producers Mark Cuban and Todd Wagner's 2929 Productions, and has been delayed trying to finish it. Based on Ron Rash's 2008 novel, the film is set in 1929 North Carolina and follows George and Serena Pemberton, ambitious newlyweds with their hearts set on a timber empire. They become obsessed with success, and their lives take a Shakespearean turn when Serena finds that she can't get pregnant and tries to harm her husband's illegitimate son. Why the delays?

How Jennifer Lawrence's "Ditzy" Character in 'American Hustle' May Be Key to Libel Lawsuit

27 March 2015 9:29 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Next Wednesday, producers of David O. Russell's 2013 film American Hustle will attempt to nuke a lawsuit brought by Paul Brodeur, an expert in the biological effects of electromagnetic fields. The legal action filed in Los Angeles Superior Court has prompted what the plaintiff has termed the "Ditzy Defense." Brodeur made his $1 million libel claim last October against Columbia Pictures, Atlas Entertainment and Annapurna Pictures over a comment from Jennifer Lawrence's character Rosalyn in the film.

Review: Serena Finally Lumbers Into Theaters

26 March 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Hallmark Hall of Fame called, they said to stop right now - they do not have the budget for these movie stars...! Lantern-lit wood cabins and literary based period melodrama do not guarantee a respectable film. The problems with Serena would make more sense if the making of the film had preceded David O. Russell's acclaimed 2012 charmer Silver Linings Playbook. That film demonstrated an appealing chemistry between the shared leads Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, leaving one wanting more of them together on screen. Wish granted; Lawrence and Cooper play a depression-era married couple in Serena, which in fact was shot not soon after Silver Linings. (They are currently at work on another film together with Russell, following his American Hustle in which they...

The Hunger Games Scribe Peter Craig To Write Steven Spielberg’s It’s What I Do

26 March 2015 1:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From out of nowhere screenwriter Peter Craig has emerged as one of the industry’s buzziest scribes. The scribe has racked up a solid resume of credits including Ben Affleck’s The Town, both instalments of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay and the upcoming Gerard Butler thriller Hunter Killer. For his next project, he is set to reunite with his Mockingjay star Jennifer Lawrence, as Craig is now attached to pen It’s What I Do.

Based on the life of war photographer Lynsey Addario, the title of the movie is taken from her memoir It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War. Warner Bros. snapped up the rights prior to the book’s release and started to assemble a preliminary team to bring Addario’s emotionally-driven tale to the big screen.

Thus far the studio has struck gold. Andrew Lazar, whose experience on memoir »
