Amanda Seyfried To Star Opposite Ed Helms For New Comedy The Clapper

23 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Writer-director Dito Montiel (Man Down) is set to take the reins of his own passion project The Clapper, Deadline reports that Montiel has already secured his two leading cast members in Ed Helms and Ted 2 star Amanda Seyfried.

Adapted from Montiel’s own novel of the same name, The Clapper is pitched as an offbeat comedy that chronicles the life of a professional clapper, who makes a living sitting on in infomercials and applauding on cue. A drab and dreary profession, it’s understood that Ed Helms will take point in the lead role as Eddie Krumble, who unwittingly becomes the center of attention while in the audience for a Jay Leno talk show. Thrusting him into the limelight for 15 minutes of fame, Helms’ character is soon left battling unwanted attention that threatens both his employment and flailing love life.

As for Seyfried, the actress has reportedly been cast for the role of Judy, »

Ed Helms and Amanda Seyfried join comedy The Clapper

7 February 2016 9:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that Ed Helms (Vacation) and Amanda Seyfried (Ted 2) have signed on to appear in The Clapper, which is being directed by Dito Montiel (Empire State) from his own book of the same name.

The site reports that the film revolves around ” professional clapper for infomercials who gets plucked by a late night talk show host to be on his TV show. The notoriety that his 15 minutes of fame brings ends up costing him his job as well as a budding relationship with a girl who works at a gas station. The project is a testament to how easily fame is achieved in today’s reality-program driven society and how it can complicate ordinary people’s lives.”

Montiel’s latest film, the post-apocalyptic thriller Man Down starring Kate Mara, Jai Courtney, Shia Labeouf and Gary Oldman, premiered at the Venice Film Festival back in September, but is currently without a release date. »

Super Bowl Weekend Preview: 'Panda 3' Over 'Hail, Caesar!', 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' & 'The Choice'

4 February 2016 10:14 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

It's Super Bowl weekend and some segments of the box office are likely to take a bigger hit than others. Last weekend's #1 film, Kung Fu Panda 3, won't be affected as much thanks to it being a family film, but adult-targeted features will be more susceptible. One such film is the new movie from the Coen brothers, Hail, Caesar!, which is hitting theaters alongside the period horror Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and The Choice, which looks to become the lowest grossing opener for a film based on a Nicholas Sparks novel. Overall, the top twelve is looking to finish around $100 million, down $36 million from the same weekend last year, though about $16 million ahead of 2015's Super Bowl weekend. Kung Fu Panda 3 will finish #1 for the second weekend in a row, dropping around 40-44%, bringing in around $23-25 million. Last year, after its $52.1 million opening, Home dropped 48.2% and »

Watts occurring in ‘Twin Peaks’

2 February 2016 2:48 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As an avid movie journalist you tend to get excited by certain pieces of news. But every so often a titbit comes along that blows your head off, and for me one of those moments has just landed, as Deadline reveals Naomi Watts has signed up for Twin Peaks.

David Lynch, the director who puts the key into wacky, has teamed up with former collaborator Mark Frost to get the sinister soap back on the road. Details of Watts’ character are under wraps and producers Showtime have as ever remained tight-lipped.

Cast news has been the source of heavy speculation. Of the returning thesps, Kyle MacLachlan is definitely in, with all other names up for debate. Michael Horse, who appears in the teaser trailer, mentioned that Kimmy Robertson and Harry Goaz were back as lovestruck idiots Lucy and Andy, also unconfirmed. Even Lynch is rumoured to be reviving his hearing-impaired FBI Chief Gordon Cole. »

'Twin Peaks' Lands Naomi Watts and Tom Sizemore

2 February 2016 12:35 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With production still under way on Showtime's Twin Peaks revival, even more casting news is starting to surface. Deadline is reporting that Naomi Watts and Tom Sizemore have recently joined the cast, but no details were given about the characters they are playing. We reported back in late October that series creator David Lynch was eyeing Naomi Watts for a role, but now she has reportedly signed on.

The site also reports that David Lynch himself will reprise his on-camera role from the original Twin Peaks series as FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole. It isn't known how significant of a role he will have in this Twin Peaks revival, but the filmmaker starred as Cole in six episodes of the original series. We have already seen a brief trailer for the show, but it didn't reveal any actual footage, although it did tease that the population in this sleepy little town has remained unchanged, »

Naomi Watts Set To Reteam With David Lynch For Twin Peaks Revival, Tom Sizemore Also Cast

2 February 2016 7:06 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

More than a decade ago, David Lynch handed Naomi Watts a chance to make a name for herself by headlining Mulholland Drive opposite Laura Elena Harring; one psychedelic script and a breakout performance from Watts later and the rest is history. Now, Deadline reports that the actress is primed to reunite with Lynch for Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival, with Tom Sizemore (True Romance, Black Hawk Dawn) also cast in season 3.

No word yet on who exactly Watts and Sizemore will be portraying come early 2017, though fans of the original supernatural mystery series can take solace in the fact that David Lynch is set to reprise his role as FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole. Other key cast members at the time of writing include Laura Dern, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Ted 2 star Amanda Seyfried.

Naomi Watts and Tom Sizemore added to Twin Peaks revival cast, David Lynch to reprise role

2 February 2016 5:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The cast of 2017’s revival of the cult classic Twin Peaks has just grown larger, as Naomi Watts (While We’re Young) and Tom Sizemore (Reach Me) are reportedly signing on to the show in unknown roles, and series co-creator David Lynch is rumored to be returning to play FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole.

Lynch, who will also be helming and co-writing all of the episodes alongside Mark Frost, has directed Watts in the past on 2001’s critically acclaimed neo-noir mystery film Mulholland Drive. Sizemore, on the other hand, has yet to work with the director.

Gordon Cole appeared in a handful of episodes during the original 1990 to 1991 run of Twin Peaks. Most of Lynch’s appearances as the character came in the show’s second season, and his inclusion in the limited series is unexpected but much-welcomed news.

The new Twin Peaks will see the return of  Kyle MacLachlan as Agent Dale Cooper, »

Top 10 Disappointing Films Of 2015

18 January 2016 2:26 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

2015 offered some terrific films for audiences – The Martian, Creed, Straight Outta Compton, Brooklyn and Star Wars: The Force Awakens to name a few. They were huge crowd-pleasers and very successful at the box office. But not every movie connected with audiences this past year, as much as we wanted them to.

Wamg takes a look at the past 12 months and the movies that we really wanted to love, but just couldn’t. Here we go with our Top 10 list of the Most Disappointing Films of 2015.

Dishonorable Mention: Seventh Son

It’s hard to decipher exactly what Jeff Bridges is saying under his accent that sounds like a cross between Gandalf and Bane from The Dark Knight Rises. And that is only one of the many problems with this film. Seventh Son is nothing but hallow, visual clutter that is cobbled together to form something that struggles to appeal to the »
