Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve shared voiced fears to The Hollywood Reporter's Director Roundtable saying he surely thought, "everyone was going to hate me because I dared to do [the remake of the classic film, Blade Runner.]"

Disney eyeing Rob Marshall to direct The Little Mermaid

As Disney continues to adapt many of its classic animated films, Deadline reports that the studio is eyeing Rob Marshall to direct the live-action The Little Mermaid. Marshall has reportedly been offered the director’s chair and will decide after the holidays.

This won’t be the first time Marshall will have worked for Disney if he accepts. He has just come off directing Mary Poppins Returns, starring Emily Blunt as the famous English nanny. He also directed Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, a film which earned Disney over $1 billion at the box office in 2011, as well as 2014’s Into the Woods.

The Little Mermaid will be produced by Lin-Manuel Miranda (Broadway’s Hamilton), who also worked with Marshall on Mary Poppins Returns, and Marc Platt. Miranda will also write new songs for the film with Little Mermaid‘s original song writer and composer Alan Menken.

‘The Little Mermaid’ Live-Action Disney Reboot Eyes Rob Marshall as Director
Disney has offered Rob Marshall the job of directing its live-action version of “The Little Mermaid.”

The studio tapped Lin-Manuel Miranda and Alan Menken last year to write the songs for the reboot of its 1989 animated hit. Miranda is also producing the film along with Marc Platt. Jane Goldman wrote the script.

The original version followed a mermaid princess who sought to meet a human prince on land. Menken wrote the music, including the songs “Under the Sea,” “Part of Your World,” and “Kiss the Girl.”

If Marshall takes the gig, it would mark his fourth Disney film after 2011’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” 2014’s “Into the Woods,” and “Mary Poppins Returns,” which stars Emily Mortimer, Emily Blunt, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, Miranda, Angela Lansbury, and Dick Van Dyke. “Mary Poppins Returns,” a sequel to the 1964 film that starred Julie Andrews, hits theaters on Dec. 25, 2018.

Julia Stiles Speaks Out After She Was Criticized for the Way She Held Her Newborn

Julia Stiles Speaks Out After She Was Criticized for the Way She Held Her Newborn
Julia Stiles has a message for mom shamers.

The 36-year-old actress was accused this week of not holding her newborn son, Strummer, correcting after she posted a picture of herself and her 5-week-old child in a baby carrier. On Friday, Stiles took to Instagram to speak out against the criticism she was receiving. 

"It was brought to my attention that in the previous photo I am not holding my baby correctly," Stiles began her post.

"Wow, I didn't expect that. What was supposed to be a shout out of products I like, suddenly becomes an invitation to comment on my baby, and my ability as a mother. That's the internet for you, the carnivorous plant from 'Little Shop of Horrors,'" she continued. "I was trying to keep as much of my son's image private, including, I guess, his little feet. And it was just a photo taken at home, not how I normally

Denis Villeneuve Responds to Criticism of ‘Blade Runner 2049’s Female Characters: ‘The World Is Not Kind on Women’
Disappointing box-office numbers notwithstanding, “Blade Runner 2049” is among the most well-received films of the year. One aspect of Denis Villeneuve’s long-awaited sequel that hasn’t earned widespread praise, however, is its portrayal of women — a critique the director has responded to by saying that “cinema is a mirror on society.”

“I am very sensitive to how I portray women in movies. This is my ninth feature film and six of them have women in the lead role,” he says in a Vanity Fair interview. Among those are “Arrival,” which stars Amy Adams, and “Sicario,” with Emily Blunt in the lead.

“The first ‘Blade Runner’ was quite rough on the women; something about the film noir aesthetic. But I tried to bring depth to all the characters. For Joi, the holographic character,

‘Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool’ Trailer: Annette Bening Enters the Race for Her First Oscar

‘Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool’ Trailer: Annette Bening Enters the Race for Her First Oscar
It’s hard to believe that Annette Bening has never won an Oscar. The 59-year-old actress has been nominated four times and got incredibly close to landing her fifth nomination last year for her wonderful lead role in Mike Mills’ “20th Century Women.” The Academy snubbed her, but she’s not wasting any time out of the awards season. Bening is back with “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool.”

“Liverpool” is based on the memoir by British actor Peter Turner and recounts his romance with the legendary and eccentric Hollywood actress Gloria Grahame during the last years of her life. Grahame won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in 1952’s “The Bad and the Beautiful” and appeared in films alongside Humphrey Bogart, Robert Mitchum, and Kirk Douglas.

Bening takes on the role of Grahame, while Jamie Bell plays Turner. The supporting cast includes Julie Walters and Vanessa Redgrave.

Video: A Quiet Place – Teaser Trailer

Ssh! Don’t make a sound. The teaser trailer for supernatural horror A Quiet Place has been unleashed onto the inter-web and if you don’t like awkward silences, this one might not be for you.

The teaser doesn’t give too much away regarding the plot, but what’s clear is that a family living out in the country are forced to live in total silence in order to hide from an unknown evil that thrives on sound. File this one under “intriguing”. With such a unique concept it’ll be interesting to see how they tackle a horror film with restricted sound. Not much screaming in this one, I’m guessing.

A Quiet Place stars Emily Blunt and John Krasinski and will sneak into cinemas April 2018.
