MadRiver, Riverstone Seal Production, Financing Alliance (Exclusive)

5 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Marc Butan’s MadRiver Pictures and Reliance Entertainment’s Riverstone Pictures have pacted to finance, develop and produce a slate of movies in the $15 million-$50 million range. The pair aim to make between two and four director- and star-driven films per year.

Adding heft to the announcement, the nine-month old MadRiver revealed that Kimberly Fox has become a company partner. She will head a new international sales arm.

Founded by Deepak Nayar and Nik Bower, and backed by leading U.K. media investor Ingenious, Riverstone will also make a multi-million dollar start-up contribution in to a development fund for MadRiver. That will allow the company to accelerate its feature-film development drive.

“Our interest and business acumen are closely aligned with Nik and Deepak at Riverstone,” said MadRiver Pictures founder Butan. “We look forward to a successful collaboration on a bold slate of films with widespread international appeal.”

The film, which begins production later this month, focuses on the end of Swiss painter and sculptor Alberto Giacometti’s life.

Giacometti died in 1966 in Switzerland. He’s best remembered for his stark and surrealistic sculptures.

Producers are Gail Egan for Potboiler alongside Nik Bower for Riverstone Pictures and Ilann Girard. Deepak Nayar is an executive producer and the film is produced in association with Olive Productions, Lowsun Productions and Arsam International.

Exclusive interview with Dermot Mulroney for ‘Dirty Grandpa’

29 January 2016 2:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Hitting cinemas this week is the brand new comedy Dirty Grandpa, which pits Zac Efron’s uptight lawyer Jason, against Robert De Niro’s Dick, his grandpa who forces him to take him on a road trip to Daytona Beach in Florida for spring break. Also along for the ride is Dermot Mulroney, the father caught between the two of them. This week, we caught up with Mulroney, the stars of such films as Young Guns, My Best Friend’s Wedding and The Grey, to talk about Dirty Grandpa, parenting and playing the cello.

What did you think when you first read the script?

I thought it was the next in a list one movies where you really get grossed out; the raunchiest of raunchy humour, and for me those are great movies and I’m proud to be in one. I could;t believe it when i got tasered »

TV in 2016: January to April (Part 1: New Series)

16 January 2016 6:02 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Though 2015 brought an absurd bounty of great television, not to mention the proclamation that we had entered the era of #PeakTV, there’s absolutely no reason to think that 2016 will let up. At all. In the first few months of the year alone, there are a whole host of great returning series gearing back up, as well as a wide variety of new ones. There are so many, in fact, that it took some difficulty to narrow them down to under 30. But here we are.

So please note that this is by no means a comprehensive list – for those so inclined, by all means, get excited for Legends of Tomorrow, American Crime Story, The Magicians, Lucifer, and, sure, why not, Fuller House. The list below are just a few that seemed, for one reason or another, to be especially noteworthy. (In at least one instance, “noteworthy” is not necessarily a compliment. »

Yesterday, the 36th annual Razzie Awards nominations were announced by the The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation. It is tradition that the Razzies, which celebrate the worst movies of the year, are nominated just before the Oscar nominations, which celebrate the best films of the year. The Oscar nominations will be announced in Los Angeles later this afternoon, but the Razzie nominations have already been released.

We’re afraid its bad news for Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum, and Kayley Cuoco-Sweeting.

Here is the official press release.

All five films up for Worst Picture at this year’s 36th Annual Razzie® Awards are big budget/high profile productions that have no excuse for being among the year’s “berry” worst.

2016 Razzie Awards Nominations Are Here

13 January 2016 10:07 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

All five films up for Worst Picture at this year's 36th Annual Razzie Awards are big budget/high profile productions that have no excuse for being among the year's "berry" worst. And 2015's acting contenders include popular stars like Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum, and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, previous Oscar winners Gwyneth Paltrow, Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore, and such Razzie Repeat Offenders as Adam Sandler, Jennifer Lopez and Katherine Heigl. "Winners" will be announced in intentionally tacky ceremony scheduled for 8pm/Pst on Saturday February 27 -- Oscar eve.

The choices for Worst Picture include Fifty Shades of Grey (2015's "Most Successful Bad Movie"), Fantastic Four (a nearly instant remake that flopped with both critics and movie-goers), Jupiter Ascending (the latest sci-fi fiasco from Andy Wachowski & Lana Wachowski), Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (a box office hit despite its 95% negative rating at Rotten Tomatoes) and Adam Sandler's latest excuse for a movie, »

Kevin James, 'Fifty Shades of Grey' come up big in this year's Razzies

13 January 2016 7:51 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's the day before the Oscar nominations are announced, and that means Razzies! Yes, the nominees for the awards that celebrate the best of the worst have been announced. Not too many surprises this year: "Fifty Shades of Grey," "Jupiter Ascending," and "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" led the pack with six nominations each. Really the only surprise was that "Mortdecai" wasn't up there with them (it only got three noms). Oh, and that Julianne Moore was nominated. I didn't see "Seventh Son" but I can't imagine that she was bad enough in it to be considered one of the worst performances this year. She's Julianne Moore! And dubious congratulations are in order for Kevin James, who was nominated in several acting categories for his work last year. Winners will be announced on February 27 -- as always, the night before the Oscars are handed out. Worst Picture "Fantastic Four"  "Fifty Shades of Grey »

2016 Razzies Nominations: It's a Four-Way Tie for the Worst

13 January 2016 5:53 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Yes, it's that time of the year again! The day before Hollywood pats itself on the back with Oscar nominations, the Razzies show up to remind everyone why Hollywood deserves a few raspberries with the champagne.

Besides as Jean-Ralphio could tell you, there's nothing more fun than honoring the wooooorst:

This year, there's a four-way tie for the dubious honor of most Razzie Award nominations: "Fifty Shades of Grey," "Pixels," "Jupiter Ascending," and "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" got six nods. That, at least, is some small consolation for "Fantastic Four," which walked away with "only" five nominations. And "Pan," "Mortdecai," and "Human Centipede 3" were seriously let off the hook. (Hook -- get it? The worst!)

Here's an exciting note: Eddie Redmayne has a chance to win both an Oscar and a Razzie in the same year, since the reigning Best Actor winner will probably be nominated again for "The Danish Girl »

'Robin Hood: Origins' Lands Jamie Foxx as Little John

11 January 2016 4:21 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the Robin Hood (Taron Egerton) and Maid Marian (Eve Hewson) roles locked up for Lionsgate's gritty reboot Robin Hood: Origins, the rest of the cast is starting to get filled out. Deadline reports that Jamie Foxx has come aboard to star as Little John, although this version of the character will be much different than the original folklore tale. This incarnation of Little John is said to start out not trusting Robin Hood, because they both fought on the opposite side of The Crusades. But he eventually warms up to the hero.

Joby Harold (Knights of the Round Table) wrote the screenplay, which offers a revisionist take on the beloved Robin Hood tale. The plot follows the title character, who returns home from fighting in The Crusades. He discovers that his beloved Sherwood Forest has become a den of corruption, leading him to form a band of merry outlaws to take back his homeland. »

Don't Stray from The Path! [Trailer]

11 January 2016 12:17 PM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Hulu is getting into the original content game in a big way. "The Path" is not the first original show the streaming service has put out but between this and "11.22.63," (trailer) Hulu is clearly trying to graduate to the big kids table to play alongside Netflix and Amazon Studios.

Jessica Goldberg's new show stars Aaron Paul and Michelle Monaghan as a couple who are members of an emerging religious "movement" led by charismatic leader Hugh Dancy who comes to the show fresh from the finale of the gone-too-soon "Hannibal." There are few details about the specifics of the show but according to the Tc [Continued ...] »

Watch: Aaron Paul and Hugh Dancy Find Faith — But Not Scientology — in Hulu's 'The Path' Trailer

Read More: Aaron Paul and Michelle Monaghan Are On 'The Path' to a Cult in First Look at Jason Katims' Hulu Drama It's not about Scientology. That's probably the answer everyone involved with "The Path" will have to give repeatedly when answering questions about the new Hulu series. Focusing on a cult-like new religion, the hour-long drama series starring Aaron Paul, Hugh Dancy and Michelle Monaghan isn't meant to be a fictional evaluation of the corrupt, celebrity-fueled "religion," despite what viewers may assume from the new trailer (above). "I wanted to invent my ideal faith," creator Jessica Goldberg said Saturday afternoon when speaking at Hulu's TCA press day in Pasadena. "And then, of course, with any faith, there’s a dark side to it. I felt it would be too narrow, and wouldn’t allow us the same storytelling opportunities, if we put this into something that already existed." Even without a topical, »

Following his stellar 5 season run on the critically acclaimed hit Breaking Bad, Aaron Paul returns to series television with the new drama The Path.
