Yes No Maybe So: "The Rewrite"

15 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Hugh Grant returns to the romantic comedy genre in "The Rewrite". Here's Matthew Eng to break it down for us in our Yes No Maybe So way


Marisa Tomei

Marisa Tomei

Marisa Tomei

• Let me say it again. Marisa. Tomei. I’ll take her wherever I can get her, and I’d watch The Rewrite if only as a dolled-up delivery system for the most undervalued Oscar-winning actress working today. Why active, actress-friendly directors like David O. Russell and Woody Allen have yet to scoop her up and make a comedic muse out of her is totally beyond comprehension. She’s moving, miffed, and magnificent in Love is Strange, giving a pitch-perfect supporting performance, in the purest sense of the term. And she seems to be serving up her usual best here (i.e. rich, relaxed, and revealing character work) and top-lining (!) the damn thing as Hugh Grant’s »

The 85th Academy Awards: If I had been a voter

28 August 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Today I’ll be going back once again and looking at a recent Oscar lineup and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories. I mentioned that potentially I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, and while I’m going to be doing that here and there, there’s a chance that this could turn into a long running thing. Again, if nothing else, this gives you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of the year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit more. Alright, here goes nothing: Best Picture – Argo The nominees here for this ceremony were Amour, Argo, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Django Unchained, Les Miserables, Life of Pi, Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook, and Zero Dark Thirty. »

27 August 2014 11:27 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Empire Magazine has released high quality version of two of the previously released photos from Joss Whedon's "Avengers: Age Of Ultron". The first showing Whedon and actor Jeremy Renner on the set, the second a shot of Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark And Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner.

Next comes new shots of the huggable robot Baymax in the Disney/Marvel animated feature "Big Hero 6," followed by a first look at Riley - the 11-year-old girl at the center of Pixar's "Inside Out". That film deals with the clashing personalities of the colorful emotions that populate her mind.

Finally there's a new shot of Meryl Streep in the film adaptation of the Sondheim musical "Into the Woods," a new shot of Benedict Cumberbatch in "The Imitation Game," a first look at Nicole Kidman in "Paddington," and a photo of Jennifer Lawrence in David O. Russell's period »

Jennifer Lawrence could potentially join Quentin Tarantino’s next film

21 August 2014 7:13 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While news of of a Quentin Tarantino film going into development is always met with a level of excitement, fans of the filmmaker have gone on a bit of a rollercoaster with his newest project. Titled The Hateful Eight, Tarantino initially scrapped the film following the leak of his script to the public, before staging a live-reading of the script for charity. This was followed by the announcement that Tarantino was back in production on the feature. Now a new piece of news has emerged, as Collider reports that Tarantino is in talks with actress Jennifer Lawrence to take on a role in the film.

Lawrence herself has seen her star rise in recent years, garnering acclaim for her role in 2010′s Oscar-nominated Winter’s Bone before going on to the role of Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise and Mystique in the X-Men franchise, as well as »

Jennifer Lawrence May Join Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight'

21 August 2014 5:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans who plan on seeing Sin City: A Dame to Kill For this weekend will be the first to check out the teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight. Following the trailer description from yesterday, Collider is reporting that The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is in negotiations for a role in the Western.

When the director staged a live reading of his screenplay back in April, there were only two female roles, Daisy Domergue and Six-Horse Judy, which were read by Amber Tamblyn and Zoe Bell.

We reported last month that the director plans on using the entire cast from is live reading, including Bruce Dern (The Confederate), Samuel L. Jackson (The Bounty Hunter), Kurt Russell (The Hangman), Amber Tamblyn (The Prisoner), Walton Goggins (The Sheriff), Michael Madsen (The Cow Puncher) and Tim Roth (The Little Man) and James Remar. However, the cast hasn't been officially announced yet, »

Jennifer Lawrence Wanted For Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight

21 August 2014 4:57 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Quentin Tarantino is moving full steam ahead with his upcoming Western, The Hateful Eight. While we’ve heard that the director will be using the same cast that he used for the live read (Bruce Dern, Kurt RussellMichael Madsen, Walton Goggin, Samuel L. Jackson, etc.), that is unconfirmed and for now, just a rumor. He very well could go with a whole new group of actors, or at least a few fresh faces, and if this latest report is to be believed, that might be exactly what he’s doing.

Collider is telling us that Jennifer Lawrence is wanted for a major female role in the film. Of course, this hasn’t been confirmed, and apparently the actress’ camp has shot it down already, but it’s still worth discussing. After all, just because a publicist denies a rumor doesn’t mean that it’s not true.

Jennifer Lawrence and Others Rumored for Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight'

21 August 2014 4:16 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

While a largely text-based trailer for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight will premiere in front of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For this weekend, the movie has not yet gone begun filming and the trailer doesn't even list any confirmed cast members. To this point it seems Kurt Russell is the only one that's said he's in the film, but even that has yet to be made official. Now, however, things are starting to heat up as new rumors suggest Jennifer Lawrence, Evan Rachel Wood, Geena Davis and Hilary Swank may all be under consideration for a role. Note, however, these are just rumors and could simply be wishlists and/or publicists trying to get their client's names in the mix. For example, Jeff Sneider from quoted Lawrence's reps in a The Wrap tweet saying, "Despite internet rumors, her reps have confirmed she's not doing this project. »

Rumor: Jennifer Lawrence In Talks For Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight'

21 August 2014 3:20 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Okay, so we know "The Hateful Eight" teaser trailer this weekend will amount to a series of titles, but that's only a minor distraction  from the fact that Quentin Tarantino is moving full steam ahead on his western, which is already being advertised for release in 2015. Which means a cast has to be put together, and while many assume the roster of names who participated in the live read in April would be the ensemble for the movie, that might not be the case. Collider reports that Jennifer Lawrence is in talks to join the movie. As far as we know, there's only one woman among of the titular Hateful Eight group —Daisy Domergue (read by Amber Tamblyn this past spring)— so we'd presume she's being sought for that part. And there's Six Horse Judy (read by Zoe Bell), but we'd guess the part is too small for an actor of Lawrence's calibre. »

Exclusive: Jennifer Lawrence in Talks to Join Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight

21 August 2014 2:51 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Jennifer Lawrence is at a point in her career where she can do almost anything she wants short of saying, "I'm Batman now. Take a hike, Affleck."  Thankfully, she continues to be smart about the projects she takes.  She has two blockbuster franchises, and she's found a strong collaborator in David O. Russell.  But now there's another big filmmaker who might work with the talented actress, and one who's a far cry from her previous directors. We're hearing that Lawrence is in talks to team up with Quentin Tarantino for his upcoming film, The Hateful Eight.  Hit the jump for more. Hot on the heels of yesterday's trailer description for The Hateful Eight, we've learned a little more about the highly-anticipated Western.  We can say that Lawrence is in talks to join the film, and this is not a "wish-list" thing where she's one of many actresses being considered for a role. »

'Sin City' Siren Eva Green on Her Sexy, Bloody Comeback

21 August 2014 9:04 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Eva Green's year has been one for the history books, or from them anyway. In March, the French actress was seen in plate mail playing the vengeful Persian warrior Artemisia in the action hit 300: Rise of an Empire. Then, in late April, she popped up in Showtime's Penny Dreadful, recently renewed for a second season, where she traded in ancient duds for frocks and black lace as Vanessa Ives, a Victorian prone to demonic possession. In August, Green caps her run of titillating period pieces with the release »

Bradley Cooper to Star in MacK Bolan Movie; Todd Phillips to Direct Action Novel Adaptation

18 August 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Author Don Pendleton introduced Mack Bolan (aka The Executioner) in 1969.  Pendleton wrote 37 Mack Bolan novels, sold the rights in 1980, and ghostwriters have produced over 600 books in the ongoing series.  Over the years, many of Hollywood's burliest leading men have angled to play the Vietnam veteran who fights against international terrorism, including Steve McQueen, Sylvester Stallone, Clint Eastwood, and Vin Diesel.  But a film adaptation has remained elusive. Writer Shane Salerno (Savages) is scripting a new attempt, and Warner Bros. has just acquired the Mack Bolan movie rights as a star vehicle for Bradley Cooper.  Cooper's Hangover director Todd Phillips is on board to helm the adaptation.  More after the jump. Salerno told Deadline his goal is to craft a “relevant, grounded and gritty, real-world PG-13 action-drama film series."  Salerno's script is intended as the first of a potential trilogy.  Salerno, Phillips, and Cooper will also produce. I will be impressed if Warner Bros. »

Shock Video Interview: Aubrey Plaza and Dane DeHaan on Zombie Relationships in Life After Beth

13 August 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Hitting theaters this Friday, the zombie comedy drama Life After Beth marks the debut feature of writer/director Jeff Baena (whose previous credit is as a writer on David O. Russell's I Heart Huckabees).

Dane DeHaan stars as Zach Orfman, a young man whose world has been shaken following the sudden death of his girlfriend, Aubrey Plaza's Beth Slocum. Things get weird, though, when Beth simply comes back to life with no memory of having ever died. Now, Zach has to deal with his now-undead girlfriend (who seems to be getting increasingly more undead), Beth's overprotective parents (played by John C. Reilly and Molly Shannon) and his gun-loving older brother, Kyle (Matthew Gray Gubler), who goes on a bit of a power trip when more of the recently deceased start coming back.

Interview: Aubrey Plaza, Matthew Gray Gubler & More on Zombie Comedy 'Life After Beth'

13 August 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This is a re-run of our interview with Aubrey Plaza, Matthew Gray Gubler and the cast of "Life After Beth" from the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Sometimes the chemistry on a set works just perfectly, and you can just tell the cast had a ball making the movie. Such is the case with “Life After Beth,” Jeff Baena’s directorial debut, which premiered last week at the Sundance Film Festival. The zombie comedy has a lively cast led by Aubrey Plaza and Dane DeHaan, with comic talents Anna Kendrick, Molly Shannon, John C. Reilly, Matthew Gray Gubler, Cheryl Hines and Paul Reiser offering zany support. Baena, who co-wrote “I Heart Huckabees” with David O. Russell over a decade ago (and is Plaza's boyfriend today), here offers a fresh and funny take on what can be an overplayed genre. Rather than highlighting the zombies’ flesh-eating qualities, the film focuses on the love »

Jack Huston To Suffer From ‘Pride And Prejudice And Zombies’

13 August 2014 5:31 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

One of the books that started the mash-up fad has been in development for quite some time. Based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic, the film sees an old fashioned romance blossom in a world populated with the undead. The books have received mixed reviews, with many saying the story doesn’t get past the joke title, but there’s still a lot to enjoy, although my personal favourite would have to be Sense And Sensibility And Sea-Monsters. Writer Grahame-Smith has already entered the world of film with a script for Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows and an adaptation of his own book Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.

Jack Huston has now been cast as George Wickham, joining the already cast Sam Riley as Mr. Darcy, and Lily James and Bella Heathcote as Elizabeth Bennet and one of her sisters. Igby Goes Down Director Burr Steers helms »

'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' Casts 'Boardwalk Empire' Star Jack Huston

12 August 2014 9:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one week after the languishing Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was given a new shot of life by Cross Creek Pictures, Jack Huston has signed on to play Wickham in this adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel.

Lily James signed on to play Elizabeth Bennett, with Sam Riley playing Mr. Darcy and Bella Heathcote playing Elizabeth's sister, all characters from Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice novel. Seth Grahame-Smith's novel is an "expanded" version of the original novel, where Elizabeth's quest for love is hampered by a vicious zombie outbreak.

Jack Huston, who we reported last week was in talks for an unspecified role, has now signed on to play Wickham, a blond lieutenant who Elizabeth falls for. Wickham plans on teaching these zombies how to fight, winning Elizabeth over with his theories on the undead soldiers.

Burr Steers (Emperor) is directing from a script he co-wrote with David O. Russell, »

Huston's Wickham and James' Elizabeth Bennett are immediately attracted to each other, and he’s familiar with her combat skills. Wickham aims to teach zombies to fight, and he wins Liz over with his theories regarding training them.

Steers (Igby Goes Down, Charlie St. Cloud) will direct from a screenplay by himself and David O. Russell. »

Why Dane DeHaan and Aubrey Plaza's ‘Life After Beth’ Make Out Could Have Been Awkward

7 August 2014 12:42 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

How's this for symmetry: Jeff Baena's script for a zombie rom-com called “Life After Beth” was brought back from the dead after his real-life girlfriend, Aubrey Plaza, decided she wanted to star as the movie's zombie girlfriend, Beth. (It is really good for symmetry, trust us). Baena, 37, had early success as the writer of the David O. Russell-directed “I Heart Huckabees,” a charming indie that helped him score a bunch of studio re-write jobs, which can feel like screenwriter purgatory. But when Plaza, the “Parks and Recreation” star, decided that she liked “Life After Beth,” a spec that Baena had. »
