Amazon Developing Ida Tarbell-John D. Rockefeller Movie

15 August 2016 6:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Amazon Studios is developing a movie about pioneering investigative journalist Ida Tarbell and her battle against industrial magnate John D. Rockefeller.

Amazon has acquired movie rights to Mark McDevitt’s “Ida Tarbell,” which was named to the 2015 Black List, and set it up with Tom Drumm of Think Tank Management & Production. Think Tank manager Kate Hart brought the Tarbell script into the company and will be an associate producer on the project.

Ida Tarbell” is the first feature sale for McDevitt, an Irish writer who moved to New York in 1994. The script focuses on Tarbell’s magazine series “The History of the Standard Oil Company,” which explained meticulously how Rockefeller had monopolized the country’s oil business, backed up by thousands of pages of documents and interviews with the corporation’s executives and competitors, government regulators and academic experts.

Her pioneering expose on Standard Oil began in the November 1902 issue »

Rebel Wilson To Star In Female-Led Remake of ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’

4 August 2016 11:24 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Gender swapping in remakes is becoming the new norm in Hollywood these day. With the all-female “Ghostbusters” and an “Ocean’s Eleven” starring Sandra Bullock on the way, MGM is adding a female-led “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” to the list.

Fresh off her “Absolutely Fabulous” cameo, Rebel Wilson has just committed to star in the remake of the 1988 comedy starring Steven Martin and Michael Caine. Per Variety, the updated version will bring con artistry to the 21st century and feature two female scam artists, one low rent and the other high class, who compete to swindle a naive tech prodigy out of his fortune.

The script is being written by Jac Schaeffer. Roger Birnbaum and Wilson are set to produce. No director is attached at the moment.

Is The Book Always Better Than The Movie? — Critics Survey

1 August 2016 8:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, the CriticWire Survey asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday morning. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: This past weekend saw the release of “Indignation,” which has been rather faithfully adapted from the Philip Roth novel of the same name. In the hopes of shining some light on what makes for a great adaptation, is there a film that you believe is better than the book from which it was adapted?

This is a difficult question as I admit I haven’t read a lot of the books of movies I love (unless we count my childhood interest in novelizations), so I can’t think of any favorite films I »

‘Don’t Think Twice’ Star Keegan-Michael Key On How To Tackle Comedy In This Divisive Political Climate – Q&A

20 July 2016 11:20 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For nearly two decades, Keegan-Michael Key has been tirelessly chiseling out a successful path in comedy. Name a standout sitcom from “Reno 911” to “How I Met Your Mother,” “Parks and Recreation” to “It’s Always Philadelphia,” “Modern Family,” “The Muppets” or “Ricky and Morty,” and Key has popped by to add his hilarious flare. The path began back in 2004 when he was cast on “MADtv,” and eventually led to he and castmate Jordan Peele spawning their own sketch show, the critically heralded and sharply satirical “Key and Peele.”

Through all of the above, Key has shown himself to be one of the boldest and most entertaining comedy performers working today. But in his new film, “Don’t Think Twice,” the funny man smoothly slides into drama. Which turns out to be an important next step for the challenge Key’s looking to take on next.

Gun Lobby Movie Miss Sloane Set For Awards Season

15 July 2016 4:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It usually takes Hollywood two years or more to turn out theatrical movies about real events and issues, but the subject of gun legislation in the U.S has been rumbling on for so long, it’s surprising a film like Miss Sloane hasn’t arrived sooner. It will surely benefit from the currently heightened profile of the gun law debate, however, and this sharp social relevance may well have influenced the decision to set its release date for the midst of awards season this year.

Directed by Academy Award nominee John Madden (Shakespeare In Love), Miss Sloane is the debut screenplay of newcomer Jonathan Perera. It stars Jessica Chastain – who has an Oscar nomination of her own – as the titular Elizabeth Sloane, who works as a lobbyist in Washington D.C. As she seeks to follow her ambitions, she takes on the influential national gun lobby and tries to »

Colin Firth pictured on the ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ set

We all thought that Colin Firth met his maker in the very first Kingsman movie, but it looks like we presumed wrong. The British Oscar-winner has just been snapped on the set of the sequel, which is now shooting under the watchful eye of Matthew Vaughn.

We previous saw a teaser poster featuring the words “Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated,” prompting speculation that a return for Firth was on the cards.

Now we may have the proof from co-star Pedro Pascale’s Instagram – or could it be a twin brother? Who knows? Take a look.

Colin Firth Returns In "Kingsman 2" Set Pics

12 July 2016 12:43 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Despite his apparent death in the first film, the casting of Colin Firth in the upcoming sequel "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" made it quite clear that his Harry Hart character would be back in the Matthew Vaughn-helmed follow-up to the spy action-comedy.

20th Century Fox obviously have little issue with it as a potential spoiler. Previously they released a teaser poster confirming Firth's return and now some set photos have gone up on social media from fellow cast members Taron Egerton and Pedro Pascal. The new photos show off a returning Firth in the film which is has been shooting ahead of a 2017 release. Halle Berry, Mark Strong, Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Channing Tatum and Elton John also star.

Colin Firth Returns as Harry Hart in New Kingsman 2 Set Photo

11 July 2016 3:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Shortly after 20th Century Fox released their surprise blockbuster Kingsman: The Secret Service, talk of a sequel started to surface. Director Matthew Vaughn teased last spring that he had some ideas for the sequel, even hinting that Colin Firth's character Harry Hart may return in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, despite being seemingly killed off at the end of the first movie. Back in April, a new poster teased the return of Harry Hart, but we haven't gotten a glimpse at the actor since production began. Thankfully, Pedro Pascal has offered our first look at Colin Firth from the set.

Over the weekend, Pedro Pascal shared a photo on Instagram, which features the actor hiding behind Colin Firth, with the caption "Hide behind Harry." Unfortunately, the photo doesn't come with any details about how this Kingsman agent was brought back to life, but the poster from this spring featured the »

Colin Firth Will Indeed Return For Kingsman: The Golden Circle

11 July 2016 1:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Reports of his death have been greatly exaggerated and, sure enough, Colin Firth will be back as Harry Hart for Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

Word of Firth’s return first surfaced a few months back, when Taron Egerton posted a teasing photo that included Hart’s signature spectacles. Flying in the face of expectation – the way in which The Secret Service ended led fans to believe that Hart was firmly en route to meeting his maker – director Matthew Vaughn has opted to welcome back the charismatic Firth for another whirl, and an Instagram post from Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal all but confirms Hart’s role in the action sequel.

7 July 2016 3:09 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

To celebrate the release of the supremely funny Grimsby, which arrived on DVD and Blu-ray on Monday, we have three copies of the film to give away.

Nobby (Sacha Baron Cohen), a sweet but dimwitted English football hooligan, has everything a man from the poor fishing town of Grimsby could want, including nine children and the most attractive girlfriend in Northern England (Rebel Wilson). There’s only one thing missing: his little brother, Sebastian (Mark Strong), who Nobby has spent 28 years searching for after they were separated as kids. Nobby sets off to reunite with Sebastian, unaware that not only is his brother MI6’s deadliest assassin, but he’s just uncovered plans for an imminent global terrorist attack. On the run and wrongfully accused, Sebastian realizes that if he is going to save the world, he will need the help of its biggest idiot.
