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

8 February 2016 1:52 PM, PST | 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 »

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. »

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.

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.
