Diablo Cody Says She Won’t Direct Again, Listen To 2-Plus Hours Of Podcasts With The ‘Juno’ Oscar-Winner

21 August 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Few screenwriters these days are as well known as Diablo Cody. Her colorful backstory and distinctive dialogue made her a rare behind-the-scenes star when she broke out with “Juno” eight years ago, and her work, while not always as successful as that hit film, (which also won Cody an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay), has always been fascinating and worth a watch.  Cody’s been back in the limelight recently after penning Jonathan Demme’s Meryl Streep-starring “Ricki & The Flash” (read our review here), and tells the Hollywood Reporter that despite her success, there’s one thing she’s unlikely to be doing again, and that’s directing a movie. Cody’s first feature as a helmer, 2013’s “Paradise” (starring Julianne Hough, Russell Brand and Octavia Spencer) was critically slaughtered (our review called it “a cloying after school special”), and it was released straight to DirectTV without much fanfare. »

The first international trailer has arrived online for director Gabriele Muccino’s upcoming drama Fathers and Daughters which stars Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried. Take a look below after the official synopsis…

'Fathers & Daughters' Trailer with Russell Crowe & Amanda Seyfried

6 August 2015 4:46 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I was so afraid of you leaving me!" The first Japanese trailer (in English) for Gabriele Muccino's Fathers & Daughters has arrived. The film stars Russell Crowe as the father, with Amanda Seyfried as his daughter (all grown up). The cast includes Aaron Paul, Diane Kruger, Jane Fonda, Octavia Spencer and many others. The story spans two settings across 30 years - the first in the 1980s when Crowe struggles to try and raise his young daughter as a single father; and also the modern day where that same daughter, now all grown up, struggles to connect with others just as well. It seems to be a very bold, emotional look at the long-term effects of tragedy. This got my attention, though I already like Crowe's side of the story more. Here's the first trailer for Gabriele Muccino's Fathers & Daughters, on YouTube (via The Film Stage): A Pulitzer-winning writer »

Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried And Aaron Paul Share A Familial Bond In First Fathers And Daughters Trailer

6 August 2015 1:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Italian filmmaker Gabriele Muccino may not be a household name in Hollywood, but his two most prominent western films – Seven Pounds and The Pursuit of Happyness – have underlined the director’s ability to capture raw, profoundly human emotions on camera. Now, Muccino is back with a star-studded cast for Fathers and Daughters, which has today debuted its heart-wrenching international trailer.

Starring Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried and Aaron Paul, Fathers and Daughters is a tragic tale about one family ripped apart by a car crash. It’s Crowe’s Pulitzer-winning novelist who shoulders the most pain, though, blaming himself for the loss of his wife. Left to raise a 5-year-old daughter on his lonesome, the narrative will jump between Katie’s troubled childhood and the present day, where she will be portrayed by Seyfried.

While the first look doesn’t appear to be too remarkable, Fathers and Daughters earns the benefit »

Patricia Richardson Blasts Ken Howard in SAG-aftra Election Campaign

30 July 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Patricia Richardson has taken off the gloves in her challenge to Ken Howard for the presidency of SAG-aftra.

The “Home Improvement” star, in an email sent Thursday to the union’s 160,000 members, accused Howard and his Unite for Strength allies of poor performance in recent contract negotiations, spending on “lavish” offices and cloaking union operations in secret. Although the tone of the missive was cordial and did not name Howard — opting instead to attack “current leadership” — the email carried a long list of accusations of incompetence.

Richardson, who is heading the self-styled progressives on the Membership First slate, took a cordial tone in the message and said she would not make “wholesale changes” to committee chairs and members just because of party differences.

“We need the expertise of everyone we have,” she said. “However, we do feel the current leadership has been unable to deliver true gains.”

Ed Harris, Martin Sheen Endorse Patricia Richardson for SAG-aftra Presidency

22 July 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Patricia Richardson’s challenge to SAG-aftra president Ken Howard has attracted endorsements from Elliot Gould, Valerie Harper, Ed Harris, Robert Hays, Amy Madigan, Ken McCord, Nick Nolte, Martin Sheen and Nancy Sinatra.

About 140,000 ballots went out this week to the SAG-aftra membership, with results due to be tabulated on Aug. 20. Richardson, best known as Tim Allen’s co-star on “Home Improvement,” announced her candidacy on June 25 as head of the self-styled progressive Membership First slate.

Howard won elections in 2009 and 2011 for the SAG presidency and then won the post in 2013 against Esai Morales in the first election for the merged SAG-aftra, running each time as the head of the moderate Unite for Strength slate. He announced June 1 that he would seek re-election with Jenny O’Hara as his running mate for secretary-treasurer.

Howard’s current endorsement list includes Alec Baldwin, Lewis Black, Bryan Cranston, Sally Field, Tom Hanks, William H. Macy, »

Emoji Animated Movie Happening at Sony

21 July 2015 2:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony Pictures Animation has emerged victorious in a bidding war for a project based on the social media icons known as Emoji. Warner Bros. and Paramount were also vying for the project, but Deadline reports that Sony Pictures Animation was much more aggressive in their pursuit of the animated movie. Anthony Leondis (B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations) is attached to direct and he is co-writing the screenplay with Eric Siegel.

What makes this project unique is there are no underlying rights to purchase, because the Emoji icons are in public domain. There is reportedly another pitch that will be shopped to the studios soon centering on Emoji, but it isn't clear who is behind that project quite yet. No details were given about how the story will be brought to life, but director Anthony Leondis pitched the studios using storyboards that explained how the movie would play out.

Watch seven new short films set in the ‘Twilight’ universe and made by women filmmakers

17 July 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One of the most commercially successful young adult franchises over the past decade has been the Twilight franchise, as the adaptations of the novels by Stephenie Meyer have drawn a sizable audience of the course of its four-movie run. With the last feature coming in 2012, news emerged last year that Meyer and Producing company Lionsgate would be revisiting the show’s universe with a number of short films.

This time around, however, the shorts themselves would be based on original stories set in the franchise’s universe, rather than adaptations of Meyer’s existing work. Joining Meyer and Lionsgate was the crowdsourcing platform Tongal and the organisation Women in Film, as the four groups combined to set up the contest. From over a thousand applications, the entries were whittled down to seven filmmakers, each of whom received $50,000 to make their short. A winner will be selected from the seven films, »
