Captain America Star Chris Evans to Play Jekyll for Lionsgate

6 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Lionsgate is moving forward with its Jekyll movie, and it seems the studio has found its leading man. A new report reveals that Captain America: Civil War star Chris Evans has become attached in the lead role as Tom Jackman for the studio. The project is still in fairly early stages, with no director attached at this time.

Deadline reports that the studio is developing this project based on the 2007 UK miniseries of the same name. The miniseries spanned six episodes and was written by Doctor Who and Sherlock creator Steven Moffat. Lionsgate has brought in Anthony Bagarozzi and Chuck Mondry (The Nice Guys) to write the script, although no plot details were given.

Interestingly enough, The Nice Guys star Russell Crowe recently signed on to play Dr. Jekyll in Universal Pictures' monster reboot The Mummy, where he'll star alongside Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis and Jake Johnson. »

Movie Sequels We Want to See: Clueless, Heathers and More

19 July 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Bryce Dallas Howard wouldn't mind some more help—more of the movie The Help, that is. The actress says she'd love to reprise her role as Hilly Holbrook in a sequel to the 2011 hit drama. "Put it out there," Howard said while promoting her upcoming family-friendly fantasy pic Pete's Dragon. "It's a good time to smoosh Hilly Hollbrook again." It certainly is. In the movie, an adaptation of Kathryn Stockett's 2009 novel of the same name, Hilly Holbrook is a 1950s housewife who supports segregation and condemns those who don't agree with her racist positions. The film was nominated for four Academy Awards, including best picture. Octavia Spencer won the »

Arthouse Audit: Viggo Mortensen Propels ‘Captain Fantastic’ to Rare Heights

10 July 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Thanks to a well-reviewed movie star, Bleecker Street took “Captain Fantastic” to a now-rare, once-common $20,000-plus limited per theater opening. With all well-oiled cylinders at work, Bleecker  filled the demand for older-audience films after two failed recent attempts by others at corralling the younger market (“Swiss Army Man” and “The Neon Demon”).

Two New York-only docs, “Under the Sun” (Icarus) and Sundance opener “Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You” (Music Box) both attracted interest.

A wider Bollywood release, Salman Khan-starrer “Sultan” (Yash Raj), achieved something few specialized films have managed in recent months: a Top Ten placement despite playing at fewer than 300 theaters.

Meantime, The Orchard’s “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” expanded again to strong numbers close to last weekend’s. This word-of-mouth hit could play all summer and expand wider. There is still an audience out there: it’s just more selective.

Oscar Race at the 2016 Halfway Mark: Diversity and Confusion

24 June 2016 11:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As 2016 hits the halfway point, the Oscar race is even fuzzier than usual. Two things are clear: The studios are back-loading their awards hopefuls yet again, with launches at fall festivals and/or the fourth quarter; and there are more diverse films in the mix, with at least 16 potential biggies from filmmakers who are women, Asians, Latino-Hispanics, black and seniors (i.e., over 65).

In the past few years, “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Boyhood” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” had been widely screened and started industry buzz by late June. This year, there is a lot of industry enthusiasm for a few January-to-June titles such as “Zootopia,” “The Jungle Book” and “The Witch.” But best-pic contenders? Not so sure.

The festivals so far have offered possibilities like “Manchester by the Sea” and “Loving.” And some pundits anointed “The Birth of a Nation” as the Oscar front-runner last January (a mixed blessing for Fox Searchlight, »

As Stacey Snider Ascends at Fox, Hollywood Is in Turnaround

17 June 2016 9:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At the 2014 New York Film Festival premiere of “Gone Girl,” Twentieth Century Fox Film Chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos seemed visibly relieved to have Stacey Snider finally join the studio, after months of speculation that this capable executive would join him from DreamWorks. Now, almost two years later —and after a 25-year career at Fox —the studio has confirmed that Gianopulos’ contract will not be renewed after it expires on June 30, 2017, when he will graduate “upstairs” into an executive role at parent company 21st Century Fox.

This follows a transition for Snider that has not been smooth. While the veteran exec has the right mix of skills to run a studio (and did so at Universal with Ron Meyer), knows how to manage a team of executives, and how to develop, produce, and release movies that are smart and four-quadrant friendly, entering the Fox landscape proved to be a challenge. »

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series

7 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After five nominations for playing Sheila Jackson on “Shameless,” Joan Cusack finally took home the guest actress prize last year. And just in time — she didn’t appear in the show’s most recent season.

That opens the cateogry to a whole new winner, and it might just be someone who will be doubling up on noms this year. Ellen Burstyn [“Mom”] is also a potential nominee for her work on the drama “House of Cards,” as is Carrie Fisher [“Catastrophe”] for “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce.” Tovah Feldshuh stole the show with her “Where’s the Bathroom” number in “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” but could also score a nod on the drama side for her guest work on ‘The Walking Dead.”

Natasha Lyonne [“Portlandia”] did standout work on “Orange Is the New Black,” where her character is sorely missed. Cynthia Nixon [“Broad City”] and Judy Greer [“Mom”] are other actresses pulling double duty on the comedy and drama sides. »

“I am just a dumb bunny, but, we are good at multiplying!”

When I reviewed Zootopia here at We Are Movie Geeks, I wrote”, the beautifully designed, brightly-hued Zootopia is breezier and bouncier than most.
