Will it ever end? WikiLeaks released thousands of Sony emails on Thursday, April 16 — and it's not pretty. In an October 2014 exchange with Sony Pictures Entertainment's now-former co-chairwoman Amy Pascal, famed director Cameron Crowe pokes fun of Bruce Jenner's gender transition. Crowe made the comment about the former Olympian, 65, while discussing his romantic comedy Aloha, which stars Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone. "Did you have something to show me this week?" Pascal asked Crowe. He replied: "Does Bruce Jenner want boobs? Hell yes I have [...] »
Steve Carell has officially completed his transformation from comedic actor to a dramatic one. No one is left doubting his talents as a versatile performer. Thus, whatever he does next is highly anticipated, and this latest project might just be the perfect fit for him to show both sides of his acting range.
The Wrap is reporting that Carell is now set to star in Marwencol, a movie based on a 2010 documentary planned over two years ago by Robert Zemeckis. Carell will presumably portray Mark Hogancamp, who as seen in the documentary is a man who was beaten brutally by teenagers to the point that he suffered brain damage and amnesia. He now spends his time creating miniature figurines of a scale, World War II era town. Here’s the full synopsis for the documentary:

Everyone's favorite Canadian actor, Ryan Gosling, is in talks to star in the Blade Runner sequel. Harrison Ford is already set to reprise his role as Rick Deckard. It's unknown what character Gosling would play.
Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners), and written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, the sequel takes place several decades after the 1982 original, which took place in a dystopian 2019 Los Angeles. Production is expected to begin next summer. The script is based on an idea hatched by Fancher, who co-wrote the original, and Ridley Scott, who's on as executive producer.
Gosling recently made his directorial debut with Lost River. He can next be seen in The Nice Guys, opposite Russell Crowe. He's also currently filming The Big Short, with Christian Bale, Brad Pitt and Steve Carrell. Earlier this week, rumors started to circulate that Gosling would reunite with Emma Stone for Damien Chazelle's La La Land. »

Denis Villeneuve's "Blade Runner" sequel, whether you want it or not, is quickly lining up its cast and the Canadian actor is in negotiations to star opposite Harrison Ford, who returns as burned-out bounty hunter Rick Deckard. Gosling may also sing and dance with Emma Stone in hot young "Whiplash" director Damien Chazelle's return to movie musical land, "La La Land."

You might’ve used the expression “The Real McCoy” and not actually known where it came from. Colloquially it refers to something being authentic, or the real deal. In fact, if someone were to name their movie after it, you might presume it was just a romantic comedy.
Well, now super-mega-star Chris Pratt is set to star in a movie about where that expression originated. The Real McCoy is a bootlegging drama about the life of Bill McCoy, a famous rum-runner during Prohibition who, as an American sea captain, shipped and sold illegal liquor across the coast until his capture in 1923. According to urban legend, McCoy touted that his liquor was never “cut”, or watered down, thus the expression “The Real McCoy”. But McCoy is also credited with having essentially created the six pack in order to better carry and ship bottles of rum and whiskey.

Been wondering where Andrew Garfield has been? Well, here's your answer: he's overseas on the set of his new movie. Andrew emerged in Taiwan last week, heading to the set of Silence, which is directed by Martin Scorsese. In the film, Andrew plays a Jesuit priest (who apparently has a lot of hair.) Andrew's busy schedule has kept him away from Emma Stone for the past few months and was credited as one of the reasons why the two are currently taking a break from their relationship. While Andrew has been staying focused on work, Emma has been enjoying a bit of time off after award season, even hitting up Disneyland with her brother before she gets back to the grind. »

Star-studded English-language dramas from Todd Haynes, Gus Van Sant, Denis Villeneuve, Justin Kurzel, Paolo Sorrentino and Matteo Garrone will vie for the Palme d’Or alongside new films by Valerie Donzelli, Jacques Audiard, Hou Hsiao-hsien and Jia Zhangke at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup on Thursday.
While there are only two U.S. directors in competition — Haynes with “Carol,” a 1950s lesbian love story starring Cate Blanchett, and Van Sant with his suicide drama “The Sea of Trees,” pairing Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe — this year’s Palme race looks to feature more high-profile Hollywood talent than any in recent memory. Canada’s Villeneuve (“Prisoners,” “Enemy”) will bring his Mexican drug-cartel drama “Sicario,” with Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin, while Australia’s Kurzel (“The Snowtown Murders”) secured a Palme berth for “Macbeth,” his Shakespeare adaptation toplining Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. »

Oh, hey Emma Stone! One of Hollywood's most famous (and favorite) redheads has been lying low recently, but resurfaced earlier today for the first time since the public found out about her shocking break with boyfriend Andrew Garfield (remember, it's not a breakup, and we refuse to call it that until it's official...which we hope is never). The 26-year-old was spotted taking a stroll in West Hollywood while grabbing a banana after finishing up an afternoon workout. Stone kept it cazh in an all-black outfit with a loose, white crop top over her gym clothes. Rumors of trouble in paradise for the fan-favorite couple didn't start making headlines until the last few weeks or so, but the »
Crazy Stupid Love brought together one of contemporary cinema’s most attractive pairings in the shape of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. Their electric chemistry outshone the sometimes-wavering material and left audiences feeling all warm and fuzzy at their cutesy story arc. As the duo are now circling a new project, that would fling them back together, will we see more of their romantic rapport onscreen?
By the sounds of it, that’s a resounding yes. According to Deadline, Stone and Gosling are the latest thespian couple in the crosshairs for Damien Chazelle’s romantic musical La La Land, which is described as “an old fashioned musical set in contemporary Los Angeles and centers on a love story between a jazz pianist and an aspiring actress.” Originally, the Whiplash helmer had his drummer boy Miles Teller set to co-star alongside Emma Watson, but the pair dropped out due to various commitments elsewhere. »

La La Land: Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, who previously showed great chemistry in Crazy, Stupid, Love and Gangster Squad, are now in talks to join the musical La La Land. The modern day-set but old fashioned song-and-dance style movie is writer-director Damien Chazelle's follow-up to Whiplash. The two actors would replace departed leads Miles Teller and Emma Watson. [Deadline] Untitled Shanghai Swat Project: Stuntmen-turned-directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, who made their mark last year with John Wick (pictured above), have signed on to a period-set action movie based on the true story of the first Swat team. The currently untilted movie will focus on real-life British soldier William E. Fairbairn, who is said to have been a major influence on the...

La La Land - a romantic musical set in contemporary Los Angeles - is expected to begin shooting in the autumn, according to Deadline.
The project would reunite Gosling and Stone, who previously worked together on 2011's Crazy, Stupid, Love and 2013's Gangster Squad.
La La Land will centre around aspiring and lonely actress Mia (Stone) and cocky, charismatic jazz pianist Sebastian (Gosling), who fall for each other.
However, the pair soon discover the challenge of making their relationship work in the cut-throat climate of the entertainment industry.
Last summer, we heard Whiplash star Miles Teller was looking to reteam with director Damien Chazelle for a Los Angeles set musical La La Land. At the time, Harry Potter franchise star Emma Watson was also in talks for the female lead, but they've both fallen away. Deadline is now reporting that Crazy Stupid Love and Gangster Squad co-stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are circling the film about an aspiring actress named Mia, who's lonely desperate to fit in, and a cocky yet charismatic jazz pianist named Sebastian, who fall in love in Los Angeles. It's a straight-up, contemporary, romantic musical. More below! La La Land is also written by Chazelle, and it certainly sounds different than his Best Picture nominated directorial debut Whiplash. This also sounds like an interesting change of pace for both Gosling and Stone, who we haven't seen sing on the big screen at all yet. »
