Denis Leary Talks Season 2 of ‘Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll’ and the Heavy Burden of ‘Rescue Me’

30 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When I sit down with Denis Leary, the comedian and writer currently starring in his creation “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll,” he’s coming off of days of edits, watching each episode of Season 2 over and over again, looking for the minute changes that need to be made. Confronting himself on screen doesn’t bother him if he’s working, but he recalls going to the premiere of “The Amazing Spider-Man,” in which he played Emma Stone’s father, Captain Stacy. He had to watch himself in 3-D. “I put on these glasses, and I’m sitting with my kids, and everything was great until my first time my guy showed up. You should never have to watch yourself in 3-D. My nose!”

Over nearly three decades, Leary’s made a career as a stand-up, actor, and writer, lending remarkable pathos to the a–holes he became famous for singing about. His »

Mahalo to getting lei'd at movie premieres. That's what happened last night at the after party for Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates—leis were handed out to guests as they arrived to the bash at Hollywood sports bar 33 Taps. The colorful accessory was in honor of the raunchy comedy's Hawaiian setting. The film's stars, including Zac Efron (still very blonde from Baywatch), Adam DeVine, Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza, headed upstairs where they hung out with friends and family. Emma Stone was a surprise guest and huddled at a corner table with the movie's Sugar Lyn Beard. In the Jake Szymanski-directed movie, Efron and DeVine play two hard partying brothers who go searching »

Looking at potential Best Picture contenders

29 June 2016 9:14 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

We’re coming to the very end of June folks. Much like I said last year at the start of July, it’s one thing to read early Academy Award predictions to see what folks like myself think will happen at the end of the year, but it’s another thing entirely to actually know which films will be in contention. To that end, once a week (or maybe twice a week in certain situations) for the next month or so I’ll be running down some of the major contenders in each Oscar category. Basically, the format will have me saying a few words about what/who I feel are the top tier contenders right now in said categories, along with a longer list afterwards of many of the other hopefuls. Consider this a sort of pre awards season cheat sheet for you all. Today I’m beginning with the big one, »

Emma Stone and Alicia Vikander set for rival Agatha Christie biopics

27 June 2016 4:48 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Paramount is believed to be courting the Amazing Spider-Man actor, while Sony has reportedly sounded out the Danish Girl star

The Danish Girl star Alicia Vikander and The Amazing Spider-Man’s Emma Stone have both been lined up to play a young Agatha Christie in biopics being developed at rival Hollywood studios.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Vikander has been approached by Sony to play the celebrated crime author in her formative years as a “proto-feminist” unhappy with traditional wife-and-mother expectations. Stone, on the other hand, has been pencilled in for Paramount’s take on Christie’s “missing” 11 days in 1926 – a subject already covered in Michael Apted’s 1979 film Agatha, which starred Vanessa Redgrave and Dustin Hoffman.

Oscar Race at the 2016 Halfway Mark: Diversity and Confusion

24 June 2016 11:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As 2016 hits the halfway point, the Oscar race is even fuzzier than usual. Two things are clear: The studios are back-loading their awards hopefuls yet again, with launches at fall festivals and/or the fourth quarter; and there are more diverse films in the mix, with at least 16 potential biggies from filmmakers who are women, Asians, Latino-Hispanics, black and seniors (i.e., over 65).

In the past few years, “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Boyhood” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” had been widely screened and started industry buzz by late June. This year, there is a lot of industry enthusiasm for a few January-to-June titles such as “Zootopia,” “The Jungle Book” and “The Witch.” But best-pic contenders? Not so sure.

The festivals so far have offered possibilities like “Manchester by the Sea” and “Loving.” And some pundits anointed “The Birth of a Nation” as the Oscar front-runner last January (a mixed blessing for Fox Searchlight, »

Emma Stone is thinking about Orlando. The Oscar nominee was on hand last night to present to tennis legend Billie Jean King at the Logo Trailblazer Honors gala in New York City. "I just want to take a moment and give my love to the people of Orlando, especially the friends and families of the victims," Stone said when she first appeared on stage, adding, "And I want to thank the representatives who held the floor of the House to demand common sense gun laws. I am sure I speak for everyone in this room when I tell you that we stand and sit in solidarity with you. I don't think it's ever been more important to celebrate the heroes of equality than right now and this is what tonight is »

Alicia Vikander & Emma Stone Eyed To Star In Separate Agatha Christie Films

22 June 2016 10:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Agatha Christie is known as one of the best-selling novelist of all time, and now, both Sony and Paramount are developing two separate films about the author’s life. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony’s “Agatha Christie” is eyeing Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander to portray the English writer whose life “intersects with the likes of Sherlock Holmes writer Arthur Conan Doyle and Winston Churchill.”

Over at Paramount, the studio’s film, “Agatha,” will focus on what happened to Christie during the 11 days she went missing in 1926. Their top choice to portray the literary sensation is Emma Stone.

But getting things started on these productions require the approval of Christie’s estate, a feat that is no easy task. It took Fox seven years to gain approval to have Kenneth Branagh develop the remake of “Murder on the Orient Express. »

Rival Christie Biopics Seek Vikander, Stone

22 June 2016 8:05 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Sony Pictures wants Alicia Vikander and Paramount Pictures is after Emma Stone with both being lined up to play mystery author Agatha Christie in rival biopics currently in the works at both studios.

Both projects are set during her early career. Sony's version with Vikander follows a proto-feminist Christie uninterested in a traditional wife role and finds her life intersecting with the likes of Arthur Conan Doyle and Winston Churchill. Paramount's version with Stone looks into the famed eleven days where the author went missing in 1926.

The projects are not to be confused with adaptations of her work such as the recent "And Then There Were None" mini-series, the upcoming "Witness for the Prosecution" mini-series, and Kenneth Branagh's new film adaptation of "Murder on the Orient Express" at 20th Century Fox which begins shooting in November.

The two studios require approval from the Christie estate before receiving a green light, »
