'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' Still Doesn't Have a Workable Script

22 April 2014 1:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In a recent interview, Jerry Bruckheimer seemed pretty confident that Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth film in the lucrative Disney franchise, was going to be in front of cameras before the end of 2014. That might not be the case, though, as Disney CEO Alan Horn claims there isn't even a script yet.

Speaking at the Tribeca Film Festival today in New York, Alan Horn gave this update on the sequel.

Disney Studios chief Alan Horn says he hasn't seen a #Pirates5 screenplay he's ready to greenlight yet

Brent Lang (@BrentALang) April 22, 2014

"We haven't seen a screenplay yet that I've been able to sign off on... There's a lot of variables that effect the final outcome once it leaves the studio lot, so we are very careful."

This follows a report from March, where Disney chairman Bob Iger revealed at the studio's company shareholder meeting in Portland, »

Quentin Tarantino May Direct 'The Hateful Eight' Next Winter

21 April 2014 2:48 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Hateful Eight may not be dead yet! Director Quentin Tarantino has announced that he is working on a third draft of the screenplay, and he may actually direct it next winter.

As it has been widely reported, Quentin Tarantino ditched his plans to make the Western his next movie after the first draft of the screenplay leaked online earlier this year. This past weekend, he held a one time only live reading of the screenplay, with Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Amber Tamblyn, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Bruce Dern in the leads, which seems to have reinvigorated his passion for the project. At the staged reading, which he directed himself, Quentin told the audience that they were going to see a 'work in progress of the second draft', and that he is currently planning to write a new third draft. This will include an all-new take »

Quentin Tarantino takes 'Hateful Eight' script out for an all-star live test drive

20 April 2014 4:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Okay, we're drifting away from the dialogue a bit. Let's bring it back. No more co-writing." By far, the most exciting element of Saturday night's live read was actually seeing Quentin Tarantino work with his cast as they performed his latest screenplay, "The Hateful Eight," for a sold-out capacity audience at The Theater at the Ace Hotel. Depending on where you were seated in the theater, the physical experience ranged from the tolerable to the punishing, with the audience in the upper balcony essentially getting a free sauna as the total lack of air conditioning and the preposterously close rows combined to make the running time of over three-and-a-half hours almost impossible to bear. It is a testament, then, to the compelling nature of Tarantino's script and to the great cast he put together that no one seemed willing to leave before the end, no matter how hard it was to stay seated. »

Samuel L. Jackson Joins Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' Live Reading

18 April 2014 12:46 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since Film Independent announced earlier this month that they are hosting a live staged reading of Quentin Tarantino's screenplay The Hateful Eight, fans have been wondering which actors will be showing up to read for the filmmaker. Today, Film Independent revealed on their Twitter feed that Samuel L. Jackson will be a part of the festivities.

The path of the righteous man is to Tarantino's #TheHatefulEight. One of Quentin's and ours fave @SamuelLJackson will be there, will you?

— Film Independent (@filmindependent) April 18, 2014

While the tweet doesn't exactly say he will be a part of the cast, Deadline confirms that he has a role in the reading, although it isn't clear what character he will be playing.

Quentin Tarantino had planned on directing this new script next winter, but he shelved the project indefinitely after the screenplay was leaked in January. Later that month, the filmmaker filed a lawsuit »

'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' and 'Beverly Hills Cop 4' Shooting This Year

16 April 2014 4:44 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last we heard, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth film in the series, has not yet been greenlit by Disney. That hasn't stopped producer Jerry Bruckheimer from claiming the sequel will be shooting before year's end. He also claims that Beverly Hills Cop 4 will be up and running by then as well.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was originally set to be released July 10, 2015, in a summer overcrowded with tentpole blockbusters. It was delayed so that directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim R&#248nning could revamp the script by Jeff Nathanson.

According to Jerry Bruckheimer,

"[I hope to] get that going by this fall or end of the year if everything lines up properly."

Johnny Depp is set to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow, with Christoph Waltz interested in playing the villainous Captain Brand. Keith Richards may also reprise his role as Jack's father. »

An April Oscar Predictions Update

10 April 2014 1:01 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

As promised last week, here I am again with some more up to date Oscar predictions. They’re not amazingly different from what I debuted with, but they do already show a change in focus, at least in terms of some of the second tier contenders. We’ve still got a long way to go and these new predictions will likely be completely wrong anyway, but I feel ever so slightly more confident in backing these sorts of horses as opposed to other ones. If nothing else, this sort of shows where I’m going from as the months pass and the race begins to evolve into something actually competitive… The big difference that you’ll notice besides the changes that I made in each category is that I’m also listing predicted winners now. As such, you can see that films like Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher, »

7 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Jennifer Lawrence, now accustomed to being front and center on magazine covers, appears off to the side in a bridesmaid dress on the latest cover of Martha Stewart Weddings.

Jennifer Lawrence The Bridesmaid

Lawrence, 23, was one of 11 bridesmaids for her brother Blaine Lawrence’s wedding to Carson Massler. The Lawrence-Massler nuptials took place at the Hermitage Farm in Kentucky in October 2013.

In the cover photo, Massler, in her white lace Monique Luhillier wedding dress is the main focus, while the American Hustle and Hunger Games star stuns to the right of the photo in a peach gown with a heart-shaped neckline. In photos within the magazine, Lawrence’s brother looks dapper posing in a Jos A. Bank suit that he paired with cowboy boots.

Despite the rainy day for the wedding, the 325 guests had a ball. There was even a patch of sunshine that came through just as the couple was exchanging their vows. »

Daniel Bruhl Up For Ryan Reynolds And Helen Mirren's Woman In Gold

4 April 2014 6:31 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Let's all take a moment to thank Quentin Tarantino for Inglourious Basterds and the sensational foreign actors he's managed to bring into Hollywood's spotlight through it, like Michael Fassbender, Christoph Waltz, Diane Kruger, Melanie Laurent, and Daniel Brühl. Since Inglourious Basterds debuted, the Barcelona born Brühl has been popping up in a slew of American movies from the horror-thriller Intruders, to the cheeky indie sequel 2 Days In New York, and to a double dose of docudramas with Rush and The Fifth Estate. Fitting then that he's now in talks for Woman in Gold, another drama that has found its inspiration in real life. Deadline reports Brühl has entered into negotiations to co-star in The Weinstein Company's Woman In Gold, which will be directed by My Week With Marilyn helmer Simon Curtis. Should he sign on, Brühl would join a cast that includes Ryan Reynolds and Helen »

News Nuggets: Will Quentin Tarantino surprisingly make 'The Hateful Eight' film after all?

3 April 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Film Independent is hosting a staged reading of Quentin Tarantino's "much-tussled-over" screenplay "The Hateful Eight" at the Los Angeles Film Festival on April 24. The script was leaked online, and two-time Oscar winner Tarantino is in a major lawsuit with website Gawker over that event. The western film is about a stagecoach diverted by a blizzard that traps a group of bounty hunters, a Confederate soldier, and a female prisoner in a remote saloon. Before he thwarted the idea of actually shooting the movie, rumors had Bruce Dern and Christoph Waltz as possible cast members. Could this reading be a sign that the film will be back on track for production? Thompson on Hollywood. -Break- FX unveils the first seven minutes of their new miniseries "Fargo" starring Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton. Based loosely on the 1996 Oscar-winning film from Joel and Ethan Coen, the show begins ominously with Thornton's chara. »

Quentin Tarantino to Direct 'The Hateful Eight' Live for One Night Only

3 April 2014 2:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As you may know, Quentin Tarantino shelved his latest project The Hateful Eight after the screenplay for this Western was leaked, and subsequently found its way online. While in the midst of suing Gawker over the distribution of the copyrighted work, with a lawsuit that recently got a trial date, Tarantino has decided to direct a one night only live reading of the screenplay.

The production will come to life on stage at Lacma (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) thanks to Film Independent, and the team that promotes director Jason Reitman's Live Read series, which finds popular actors reading various iconic screenplays in front of a live audience.

The The Hateful Eight live read directed by Quentin Tarantino will take place on April 24, and tickets aren't cheap. They will run you $200. While that may seem steep, Film Independent and Quentin Tarantino are promising a unique experience. While previous »

3 April 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With his lawsuit against Gawker over their linking to his leaked script "The Hateful Eight" ongoing (a trial date is set for January 27, 2015) and the status of whether or not this will actually be his next movie or not up in the air (he said it was shelved, but later rumors surfaced he was still rewriting it), Quentin Tarantino has decided to roll out the western in its first, legal airing. And you better hope you have a couple hundreds bucks to spare and can make it to Los Angeles.

'Zero Theorem', 'Night Moves', 'Magic in the Moonlight' & 'Jarhead 2' in Today's MPAA Ratings

1 April 2014 3:59 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Today's batch of MPAA ratings is a little more independent than normal, which is a little surprising considering we're headed into summer movie season, but I guess titles from Woody Allen, Terry Gilliam and Kelly Reichardt will serve as more interesting to those of us that like a little something more than just superheroes and giant robots. First up is Reichardt's new film Night Moves starring Jesse Eiesenberg and Dakota Fanning. I missed it in Toronto last year and the domestic trailer just recently premiered, giving you a first look at the supposed suspense thriller, but knowing Reichardt I have a feeling it's probably quite far afield from what we normally think of when it comes to suspenseful thrillers. sb id="907435" height="343" width="610" Next is Woody Allen's new film Magic in the Moonlight starring Emma Stone and Colin Firth. The film scored a PG-13 rating and Sony Classics has »

'The Walking Dead' Star Norman Reedus Joins 'Triple Nine'

31 March 2014 11:39 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus has joined the cast of the upcoming crime thriller Triple Nine from Open Road Films and director John Hillcoat (Lawless, The Road).

No details were given regarding the actor's character, but he joins a cast that includes Cate Blanchett, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Christoph Waltz, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Winslet, Aaron Paul, Teresa Palmer, Gal Gadot, Michael Pe&#241a and Woody Harrelson.

Matt Cook wrote the screenplay, which centers on a group of cops who are blackmailed by the Russian mafia to pull off an impossible heist. They realize that the only way to do so is by setting up a fellow officer to be killed, although their plan backfires when the rookie cop they set up to die foils their attack. The title refers to 999, the police code for "officer down."

Steve Golin, Keith Redmon and Bard Dorros are producing, with shooting is scheduled to begin this summer. »

Ladies & Gentlemen! It’s The ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ Conference Report!

28 March 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’ve been a Muppets/Sesame Street fan since I was aware of television, so what better way for me to spend a Tuesday afternoon than to attend the Muppets Most Wanted press conference?! Full of gags from beginning to end, the film’s main stars – Kermit The Frog, Miss Piggy, Constantine and Ricky Gervais – were on overdrive, and here’s just a snippet of what they had to say.

Edith Bowman (Eb): Kermit, I’ve got to say I’m loving seeing you in a kind of James Bond-style leading role in this film.

Kermit (K): Well, was James Bond ever in prison?…I think of myself as kind of getting to do a bit of an action role in this. It’s something I haven’t done before. In order to prepare for that role I watched all of Bruce Willis’ movies, and when that didn »

Channing Tatum and Steve Carell look set to hit the Cannes red carpet with 'Foxcatcher'

27 March 2014 2:31 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Cannes Film Festival is turning into quite the refuge for postponed Oscar bait. After "The Great Gatsby" skipped the 2012 awards season to open last year's fest instead (and wound up with a pair of Oscars to boot), the Weinsteins' seemingly troubled "Grace of Monaco" is following the same path. Now, on a more prestigious note, we have independently verified that Bennett Miller's much-anticipated drama "Foxcatcher" will indeed have its world premiere on the Croisette in May. "Foxcatcher," a stranger-than-fiction true-crime drama based on the autobiography of Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz, was originally lined up to be a formidable contender in the 2013/14 Oscar derby, securing the Opening Night slot at the AFI Fest in Los Angeles -- until Sony Pictures Classics rather abruptly pulled it from the slate. It was a slightly surprising move, given that the studio didn't have a bigger pony in the race: "Blue Jasmine" became their number-one campaign priority instead, »

Mike Gold: Peter Capaldi as the Ultimate Evil

26 March 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

This is the second part of a two-part look at the actor who has taken over the lead in Doctor Who. The first part discussed his work in Hotel!, In The Loop, and in the Oscar®-winning Franz Kafka’s It’s A Wonderful Life. This week, we focus on another upcoming performance.

There must be a law somewhere that mandates an adaptation of Alexandre DumasThe Three Musketeers every several years. Punch it up on IMDb and your computer will explode. Some of these movies and teevee series are quite good, others, well, suck… although I’m quite partial to the movie version that starred The Ritz Brothers. The latest version, The Musketeers, went up on the BBC earlier this year – it will be on BBC America in June – and it’s as rip-roaring as any. I’ve seen the first five, and I enjoyed them.

Miss Piggy, Kermit get Ricky Gervais giggling at Muppets UK premiere

25 March 2014 6:02 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Miss Piggy, Kermit the Frog and his Russian doppleganger Constantine had Ricky Gervais in hysterics at the UK premiere of Muppets Most Wanted in London last night (Monday, March 24).

The Muppets made their entrance in the back of a black cab, and were later joined by giggling co-stars Gervais and Ty Burrell on the red carpet at the Curzon Mayfair.

The 2011 sequel to The Muppets follows the titular characters on a sold-out global tour, before they become embroiled in an evil plot masterminded by international criminals including a Kermit lookalike called Constantine and his second-in-command (played by Gervais).

Burrell and Tina Fey co-star in the film, while Tom Hiddleston, Stanley Tucci, Lady Gaga and Christoph Waltz are among the stars appearing in cameos.

Other guests at the special screening included director James Bobin, Tucci and his wife Felicity Blunt - sister to Hollywood actress Emily.
