David O. Russell Talks Music In Film, Led Zeppelin, Jon Brion’s Unused ‘Fighter’ Score & ‘American Hustle’ On Vinyl

25 November 2014 11:01 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Percolating beneath the veneer of operatic melodrama, campy costumes, wigs and groovy vintage ‘70s pop tunes in “American Hustle” is a beating heart. A picture about dreamers and their endlessly aching desires for something of substance, David O. Russell’s take on a ‘70s crime story is typically offbeat. Crime, lies and con artist ruses are merely combustive means to explore an intimate narrative about people, identity and the lies they tell themselves to survive. An exhilarating element of the movie is Russell’s use of music, pulling away from the use of a traditional score to using once-kitschy touchstones such as Electric Light Orchestra to act as thematic signifiers into the lives of each character. The fact that most of the music in the film was once aggressively uncool —at least before hipster revisionism took over— is the point. “American Hustle” is busting at the seams with romantic, earnest notions, »

Members Only: TV Show Plans Cancelled by ABC

24 November 2014 1:28 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Another TV show has been cancelled before it even premiered. ABC has pulled the plug on their new John Stamos series, Members Only.

Described as an upstairs/downstairs drama at a private country club, Members Only was to star Stamos and Betsy Brandt with Boris Kodjoe, Natalie Zea and Luke Mitchell co-starring.

The network gave the show a straight-to-series order last January with David O. Russell and Susannah Grant set to co-write and executive produce. Russell exited the project a month later.

ABC has numerous other hour dramas in the pipeline and has now decided to drop Members Only series. The cast was informed of the decision over the weekend.

What do you think? Were you looking forward to seeing this new show?

ABC Scraps ‘Members Only’ Midseason Drama

23 November 2014 12:53 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC has formally pulled the plug on the midseason drama project “Members Only.”

Project, a co-production of ABC Studios and CBS TV Studios, was picked up in January with a straight to series order. It was billed as an “Upstairs, Downstairs”-esque vehicle revolving around a Connecticut country club. John Stamos, Betsy Brandt and Boris Kodjoe were among the ensemble cast.

Members Only” was originally set to mark director David O. Russell’s TV debut, but he left the project about a month after the series was picked up. Susannah Grant wrote the pilot script and was an exec producer with Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly.

The pilot was shot this past spring, directed by R.J. Cutler, but no other episodes had lensed. ABC had not set a premiere date beyond its midseason designation.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported ABC’s decision to nix the show.

John Stamos Members Only Canned

23 November 2014 11:39 AM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

We can now see why John Stamos has decided to attach himself to so many shows. ABC has cancelled his series called Members Only. The drama was set to premier in January covering the lives of a country club members. He was set to be the star of the show that seemed to hold a lot of promise. Oscar nominated David O. Russell was attached until this past February, but that did not prevent the series from going further in their pre-production. No word on why they decided to drop the series now, but it has been confirmed that ABC shut the door on it.

We are sad for John, but we are glad that he did allow himself to join more than a few shows. Hopefully one of them will air so we can enjoy seeing him on the small screen again. It would also give him a chance »

Jennifer Lawrence on Mockingjay's ending, David O’Russell and voting for Lupita

20 November 2014 8:02 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Jennifer Lawrence says she was about six years old when she first gave acting a shot. It wasn’t in a community theatre production or a fast-food commercial; it was in her aunt’s loo.

“I remember watching my aunt just tell a story, I was probably five or six, and I went into the bathroom. I didn’t even look in the mirror, it wasn’t about imitating or anything, but I remember I watched her, I watched her mannerisms,” recalls Lawrence, now 24, over the phone from an L.A. junket for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, the third of four movies based on Suzanne Collins’ books. “In that bathroom, at her house, when I was six was the first time I ever felt myself feel like somebody else, if that makes any sense and doesn’t make me sound like a psycho.”

To this day, observing people »

19 November 2014 4:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

There’s no denying it – Jennifer Lawrence is one of the biggest acting names on the planet.

So to celebrate the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, Thn are looking back at our five favourite J-Law performances, evidence that she definitely deserves every success given to her.

5. American Hustle

(David O. Russell, 2013)

Robert De Niro says he’ll appear in David O. Russell’s 'Joy'

17 November 2014 10:07 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Does Robert De Niro feel indebted to David O. Russell? His Best Supporting Actor nomination for 2012’s "Silver Linings Playbook" came 20 years after his last flirtation with the Academy, a Best Actor nod for 1991’s "Cape Fear." Many suspected that De Niro was done giving the all that earned him statues for "Raging Bull" and "The Godfather: Part II." Movies like "Little Fockers," "New Year's Eve" and "Righteous Kill" paid the bills — why chase awards fodder? And then "Silver Linings Playbook" came along, throwing the pessimistic theory out the window. De Niro kept a good thing going, reuniting with Russell for a bit part in "American Hustle," making him part of the director’s regular roster. From the sound of it, the working relationship isn’t slowing down: From De Niro’s mouth, he will costar in the director’s next project. Previously reported to be in talks for a role, »

Week in Review: Is Christoph Waltz the next Bond villain?

14 November 2014 8:51 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Today’s Week in Review takes us to the highly probable rumor mill and some potentially sensational casting.

First up, The Daily Mail is reporting that Christoph Waltz is on board to be the villain in the still untitled, Sam Mendes-helmed Bond 24. The Daily Mail was also the source behind other potential Bond news regarding Lea Seydoux, potentially the next Bond girl or “femme fatale.” And although it would seem obvious that Waltz would be playing the villain, even that seems ambiguous. “It’s not immediately evident whether the part’s friend, or foe, or a bit of both,” said one of the Mail’s anonymous sources. Still though, if you’re going to cast Anton Chigurh in your previous Bond movie, the next logical step is to cast Hans Landa, right?

The next concerns the potential full cast of Suicide Squad, the DC movie full of a team of super villains. »
