As is the case with most of the recent casting additions, no details were given as to which character Thandie Newton may be playing, but her casting may hint at a recent character rumor.

Variety broke the news on today's casting, which comes just two days after the site broke the news that Fleabag star/creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge will join the cast as a CGI character that is said to be quite important to the film. Unfortunately, the site has no details about Thandie Newton's character, but back in October, a report claimed that three actresses of color, Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok), Zoe Kravitz (Mad Max: Fury Road »

The Weekend Warrior’s Unconventional Sundance Awards 2017

30 January 2017 8:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome to the first, hopefully annual, Weekend Warrior Sundance Awards, where I go through the couple dozen movies I had a chance to see over the course of the past week and pick some of my favorite things.

I ended up seeing roughly thirty movies in total, only walking out of a couple (that won’t be mentioned), and overall, it was a generally decent Sundance, although only a few movies really stood out and will be remembered later in the year when we start talking about next year’s Oscars.

Oddly, I missed many of the movies that won actual awards at Sundance, so I’ve decided to give a few of my own.

Sundance Film Review: ‘The Last Word’

24 January 2017 9:57 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Here’s a new movie rule: If you’re going to sit through a Sundance “crowd-pleaser,” complete with cardboard situations and cheeseball snark and life lessons, it’s always better if that movie stars Shirley MacLaine. In “The Last Word,” she plays — what else? — a cutely difficult pie-eyed pixie-curmudgeon who is always scolding everyone and telling them how to improve themselves. I can think of many films where she played a similar role that outclass this one — like “Terms of Endearment,” “In Her Shoes,” “Bernie,” or “Postcards from the Edge.” Those were real movies. “The Last Word,” written by Stuart Ross Fink and directed by Mark Pellington, is an eager assemblage of quasi-fake setups and two-stroke characters. It makes “Little Miss Sunshine” look…organic. (It’s also not nearly as well-made.) Yet MacLaine, who isn’t above falling into high-concept shtick herself, hasn’t lost the gift of spontaneity. At 82, she’s spry and fearless. »

Buyer or Seller, Selling a Movie At Sundance 2017 Is More Complicated Than Ever

21 January 2017 10:50 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

On Friday in Park City, the bidding wars opened for business. Fox Searchlight co-president Nancy Utley began and ended her day at the Eccles Theatre, where the Sundance premieres culminated with the big acquisition title, “The Big Sick,” directed by Michael Showalter and produced by Judd Apatow. Appetites remain high for Sundance titles, but last year proved to be a teachable moment for indie distribution: There’s a big difference between being able to compete for a title, and successfully gauging what will work in the marketplace.

“The marketplace is always changing, but now it is changing more rapidly, both on the production and consumer side,” said Searchlight co-president Stephen Gilula. “The bar for theatrical viability keeps going up. While we are talking about other models, Searchlight is still a global, theatrically driven company, trying to make money on each individual title. We haven’t changed our acquisition calculus, but »
