7 Actors That Got Screwed Over By Comic Book Movies

18 October 2017 5:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Acting in a blockbuster is not all candy and sunshine. With hundreds of millions of dollars riding on the film’s success, a lot of pressure can be placed on the crew which is then transferred to the actors. That’s not to say that this is a frequent thing, but it has occurred enough to the point where it’s burst in sudden ways, such as George Clooney and David O. Russell’s fist fight during the filming of Three Kings or Christian Bale’s infamous rant against cinematographer Shane Hurlbut on the set of Terminator Salvation

What tends to really happen, though, is things change during production. What someone signed on to do initially was altered while filming and set the actor on a different course without them even knowing about it until it was too late. This happens more often then we’d like to think, especially »

How ‘Human Flow’ Director Ai Weiwei Made the Definitive Film About the Refugee Crisis

18 October 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Ai Weiwei was detained by China’s secret police, the dissident artist imprisoned for 81 days for his supposed crimes against the state, the men tasked with interrogating him must have faced a unique challenge: He speaks in a stage whisper, murmuring with the flatness of someone to whom the world is always revealing itself. “They said I watched too many Hollywood movies,” he remembered. His voice barely went up a tick, even when imitating his furious jailers: “’This person is out of his mind! He’s talking about human rights and freedom of speech… can’t he just grow up?’”

The reasons for Ai’s release were as arbitrary as those for his incarceration, but perhaps he was set free because the Chinese government realized that he was fundamentally inextricable from his ideals. Born into exile during the Cultural Revolution, Ai was displaced before he even had a home »

17 October 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The New York Times and New Yorker stories detailing a decades-long history of alleged sexual abuse have undone the career of Harvey Weinstein. Bounced from his role as co-chairman of the company he founded with his brother Bob, his name scrubbed from multiple projects, expelled from the Academy, and publicly denounced by dozens of high-profile actors, executives and filmmakers, the mogul has been tossed out of the business of which he was once a titan.

But he’s not the only one facing a reckoning. With even more revelations about Weinstein’s misdeeds coming to light, the scandal has had a ripple effect throughout the industry, dragging down multiple companies and public figures in its wake.

Amazon scraps David O. Russell’s drama series as it severs ties with The Weinstein Company

15 October 2017 7:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As part of the fallout from the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse allegations, Amazon has announced that it has scrapped plans for an untitled drama series from David O. Russell, which it was co-producing with The Weinstein Company.

The project would have saw Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore starring, and apparently already had around $40 million spent during development.

“We support Amazon’s decision as in light of recent news and out of respect for all those affected we have decided together that it is best to not move forward with this show,” reads a statement from Russell, De Niro and Moore.

In addition to scrapping the drama from Russell, Amazon has also severed its ties with The Weinstein Company on The Romanoffs, and will now continue with the series on its own, rather than as a co-production with TWC. »

As the Academy Debates Harvey Weinstein, Much Rides in the Balance

14 October 2017 11:51 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences called an urgent board of governors meeting Saturday to decide what to do about one of their most storied members, Harvey Weinstein, who perhaps more than anyone in Hollywood today is identified with the Oscars.

This week the Weinstein Company’s ousted co-owner landed on the cover of Time Magazine after revelations in the New York Times, The New Yorker and beyond about his 30-odd years of bad behavior as an alleged sexual predator, abuser, harasser and rapist. His own brother Bob has gone on the record calling him “sick and depraved.” 

While the London and New York police departments have opened up cases on Harvey Weinstein, he has yet to be arrested, charged, or indicted. The Producers Guild of America postponed a recent meeting to give them privacy in their deliberations over his ongoing membership. BAFTA suspended him. UK politicians urged »
