First Look at Kristen Stewart and Laura Dern in Kelly Reichardt’s ‘Certain Women’

19 July 2016 12:25 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

On October 14th, you will not only get to see one of our most-anticipated films of the fall, Park Chan-wook‘s The Handmaiden, but one of the best films we saw at Sundance this year: Kelly Reichardt‘s Certain Women. It tells three (very loosely connected) stories, and, today, we have a batch of new images from the IFC Films release. Featuring Michelle Williams, as well as providing our first look at Laura Dern, Kristen Stewart, Lily Gladstone, James LeGros, and Jared Harris, they give a much better idea for what to expect in the drama.

As I said in my review, “The cinema of Kelly Reichardt lives in quiet, tender observations with deeply rooted characters and location. Even when adding a thriller element as with her last feature, the overlooked Night Moves, her style is never compromised. Her latest feature, Certain Women, is a loosely connected three-part drama adapted »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Star Zendaya Circling Greatest Showman With Hugh Jackman

12 July 2016 9:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Singer-songstress Zendaya is circling a lead role in The Greatest Showman with Hugh Jackman, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Word of Zendaya’s potential casting comes only one week after My Week with Marilyn alum Michelle Williams closed a deal to star, rounding out a cast that currently comprises both Jackman and Zac Efron.

Chronicling the legendary story of one P.T. Barnum, founder of the modern circus who made a name for himself across Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, The Greatest Showman has already appointed director Michael Gracey at the helm, working from a script penned by esteemed screenwriter Michael Arndt, best known for his work on Toy Story 3.

Hugh Jackman, who has remained attached to the project for years at this point, is set to lead the charge as Barnum, while THR notes that Disney starlet Zendaya is in contention for the role of a trapeze artist. »

Zendaya in Talks for Hugh Jackman’s ‘Greatest Showman on Earth’

12 July 2016 9:11 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Zendaya is in talks to join Hugh Jackman in the P.T. Barnum biopic “The Greatest Showman on Earth.”

The project has been in development since 2009 with Jackman attached. The contemporary musical is being produced by Chernin Entertainment, Laurence Mark and Jackman.

Zac Efron and Michelle Williams are also in negotiations for the project. Michael Gracey is attached to direct from Michael Arndt’s script.

Jackman will play the showman with a specialty in hoaxing a gullible public as he creates the three-ring Barnum & Bailey Circus that made him famous. Barnum gained fame as a 19th century impresario with tours of Tom Thumb and the singer Jenny Lind; he began calling it the “Greatest Show on Earth” near the end of his career.

Efron would play Barnum’s right-hand man. Williams will play Jackman’s love interest and Zendaya will play a trapeze artist.
