Ealing Studios Acquires Stake in GreenAcre Films as TV Expansion Continues

21 May 2015 10:47 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — London’s Ealing Studios is looking to further expand its TV division by acquiring a significant stake in production company GreenAcre Films, and forging a creative partnership with the company. Earlier this year, ITV commissioned Ealing to produce two stand-alone films based on the “Maigret” novels, starring Rowan Atkinson.

GreenAcre was co-founded by Nadine Marsh-Edwards and Amanda Jenks in 2010 and became a division of Wall to Wall in 2012.

Chris Pratt Appearing In Non-Guardians Of The Galaxy Marvel Movies

20 May 2015 7:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

During his recent GQ cover story, Chris Pratt spilled the beans on a whole lot, from talk of him becoming the new Indiana Jones to Ghostbusters rumors. Less specifically but also excitingly, though, the Guardians of the Galaxy star discussed his future with Marvel, teasing that he’s signed on for not only Guardians of the Galaxy 2 but a threequel and other Marvel films.

The quote came when Pratt was musing about his packed schedule. Describing his Marvel commitments, the actor said that, “I’m tied to doing three more, or five more, Guardians of the Galaxy or whatever it is, you know, two more Guardians plus another couple…”

The interviewer took that to mean that Pratt is contracted to appear in second and third Guardians installments as well as other Marvel movies in which Star-Lord could brush up against other Avengers, and I’m inclined to agree. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is sprawling, »

Exclusive – Damon Lindelof talks Star Trek 3 plot and Idris Elba for villain role

19 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To promote the release of his new movie Tomorrowland, writer Damon Lindelof (the man responsible for Lost, Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus) sat down with Flickering Myth’s Oli Davis, where they proceeded to talk about his new movie, but also the new Star Trek 3 film.

Lindelof produced the first two films in the relaunched franchise, writing the second instalment, but working on Tomorrowland and his HBO TV show The Leftovers meant he had to step away from the third. In the interview, Lindelof talks about what he knows of Star Trek 3’s story so far:

“It’s really about the beginning of the five year mission. It’s establishing the crew after they’ve been out there and together for a while. But I don’t know anything about the plot.”

Which is…pretty much what everyone expected, seeing how Star Trek Into Darkness ends with »

Exclusive – Damon Lindelof: Working on Star Wars would be “a dream come true”

19 May 2015 4:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To promote the release of his new movie Tomorrowland, writer Damon Lindelof (the man responsible for Lost, Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus) sat down with Flickering Myth’s Oli Davis, where they proceeded to talk about his new movie, but also the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Trek 3 movies. Because they’re both pretty geeky (and one of them is best buds with Star Wars director J.J. Abrams).

While getting excited about the impending return of Luke, Leia and Han, Lindelof spoke about whether he would ever take on a Star Wars movie down the line:

“Obviously Star Wars really made me want to be a filmmaker, so the possibility that I could work on one of those films in the future would be truly a dream come true.”

"Center Stage" Turns 15 -- See What the Cast Looks Like Now!

12 May 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

"Cooper, you're an amazing dancer, and you're a great choreographer, but as a boyfriend... you kinda suck" -- if you remember Jody Sawyer's classic line, you can call yourself a "Center Stage" fan. It's hard to believe it's been 15 years since Jody (Amanda Schull) danced into our hearts (and all over he ex-boyfriend's heart!) in the 2000 teen drama about ballet life at the fictitious American Ballet Academy. The film was filled with steamy love triangles and well-choreographed dance moves, as well as an epic finale to "Canned Heat" by Jamiroquai.  In honor of the film's 15th anniversary, toofab is taking a look back at the cast to see what they've been doing since the movie's big screen debut.   So, where is Jody now? Schull has had success on the small screen, landing recurring roles on "One Tree Hill," "Pretty Little Liars" and "Suits." She currently stars as virologist Cassandra Railly on Syfy's new series, »

Trailer Watch: Nina Simone is "as Fragile as She is Strong" in 'What Happened, Miss Simone?'

30 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

"Most people are afraid to be as honest as she lived," says Lisa Simone Kelly, daughter of jazz legend Nina Simone.  "People think that when she went out on stage, she became Nina Simone," Kelly recalls in the first trailer for Oscar-nominated documentarian Liz Garbus' "What Happened, Miss Simone?" "My mother was Nina Simone 24/7," Kelly clarifies. "And that's where it became a problem."  Simone's brilliance and self-destructive tendencies are on display in the spot, which showcases the singer's extraordinary stage presence and inimitable voice.  After a world premiere at Sundance and a screening at the Berlinale, "What Happened, Miss Simone?" will become available on Netflix on June 26. (The documentary is a completely different endeavor from "Nina," director Cynthia Mort's biopic starring Zoe Saldana.)

What Happened, Miss Simone? Trailer: Netflix Doc Examines the Rise and Fall of Nina Simone

29 April 2015 9:31 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Before we watch Zoe Saldana controversially take on the High Priestess of Soul in an upcoming biopic, we'll get a documentary on the legendary Nina Simone. Directed by Liz Garbus, What Happened, Miss Simone? (which debuted at Sundance) promises an unfiltered look at the life and times of Simone — both the good and the bad — using rare interviews, her songs, and archival footage approved by Simone's daughter, Lisa Simone Kelly, who served as an executive producer. In the doc's first trailer, we hear Kelly narrate Simone's story, warning that her mother "was Nina Simone 24/7 ... and that's where it became a problem." We've got goose bumps. The doc will hit Netflix on June 26. »

Could James Cameron be working on four Avatar sequels?

29 April 2015 8:38 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Could the Avatar film series actually end up spanning five movies?

Well, composer James Horner has revealed that James Cameron currently has scripts for four follow-up films.

As of now, only three more Avatar movies have been announced, with the first set to be released in late 2017.

Horner told HeyUGuys: "He's got four sequels script-wise, and he's trying to make it into three. And I think that's where the effort is going right now. How do you keep it from expanding into a fifth movie?"

Cameron plans to film the series of three Avatar sequels back-to-back, releasing them in consecutive years.

Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana will return for the three new movies, with Sigourney Weaver also returning to play a new character.

Avatar was released in 2009, and took a record-breaking $2.8bn at the box office.

Star Trek 3 reportedly titled Star Trek Beyond, Idris Elba set for a “kick-ass” role

22 April 2015 11:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to fansite TrekMovie.com, which has a solid track record when it comes to Star Trek, the upcoming third movie in Paramount Pictures’ relaunched series is going by the title of Star Trek Beyond.

According to the site, Star Trek Beyond has been registered with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), although the report does go on to state that it could be a decoy title, given Bad Robot’s penchant for secrecy.

Little is known about the plot for Star Trek 3, although Simon Pegg – who is co-writing the script, as well as reprising the role of Soctty – has previously stated that it will have “the spirit of the TV show”, and an increased emphasis on exploration.

Meanwhile, speaking to MTV, Pegg has also confirmed that Idris Elba is set for a “kick-ass” role, stating that: “It will be [an original character]. This is the five-year mission now, we’re out there. »
