Cary Fukunaga Out, Jakob Verbruggen In For TNT’s Adaptation Of The Alienist

23 September 2016 6:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Cary Fukunaga isn’t behind the lens directing – be it the brilliant inaugural season of True Detective or Netflix hit Beasts of No Nation – you’ll often find the prolific writer-director working to get other projects up and running in a producing capacity.

Currently, he’s poised to direct Maniac, a new series starring Jonah Hill and Emma Stone, while also hosting talks with HBO about the possibility of taking the reins of Napoleon. Elsewhere on the slate, you’ll find a miniseries adaptation of Caleb Carr’s thriller The Alienist, but we now have word of a change of plans.

Deadline has the scoop, confirming that although Fukunaga was initially in line to write and direct for TNT, he’s now switched gears to executive producer, paving the way for Jakob Verbruggen (Black Mirror, House Of Cards) to take point at the helm. It’ll be a relatively quick turnaround for all involved, »

‘Playback’: Jeff Nichols Talks Oscar Contender ‘Loving,’ Fox’s ‘Alien Nation’ (Listen)

22 September 2016 5:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Welcome to “Playback,” a Variety podcast.

On today’s show Jenelle Riley and I are back to chew on the season’s lead acting Oscar races. The best actress field is stacked with so many contenders it seems a guarantee that a few deserving candidates will be left out of the equation. From Emma Stone (already a prize winner for “La La Land”) to Natalie Portman (causing a stir in Venice and Toronto with “Jackie”) to great performances we’ve seen from the likes of Ruth Negga (“Loving”) and Meryl Streep (“Florence Foster Jenkins”) and possible contenders we haven’t, like Taraji P. Henson (“Hidden Figures”) and Viola Davis (“Fences”), it’s just incredibly competitive.

Meanwhile, the best actor race is uncharacteristically soft. No one, really, seems like a lock. Casey Affleck (“Manchester by the Sea”) is certainly a strong candidate among the performances we’ve seen, while Denzel Washington »

Cary Fukunaga Drops Out Of Directing ‘The Alienist,’ Will Helm ‘The Black Count’ Next

22 September 2016 1:48 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Cary Fukunaga hasn’t really rested a moment since releasing last year’s “Beasts Of No Nation,” and while there hasn’t been much news on the film front, he’s been very busy in television. Over the past year, he’s signed up to direct Jonah Hill and Emma Stone in the TV series “Maniac,” attached himself to HBO‘s brewing miniseries take on Stanley Kubrick‘s “Napoleon,” and lending his producing powers to Ira Sachs‘ limited series “Christodora.” Meanwhile, he’s also long been set to write and direct a miniseries adaptation of Caleb Carr‘s acclaimed thriller “The Alienist” for TNT.

Critics Pick the Best Films From the Toronto International Film Festival: And the Winner Is…

22 September 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Anyone who spends more than a few days at a major festival like the Toronto International Film Festival gets used to hearing the same question: “What’s the best thing you’ve seen?”

For this year’s edition of the Tiff Critics Poll, we asked a variety of writers covering the festival exactly that. The results, culled from 45 ballots, point to a particularly interesting mixture of awards season hopefuls and some of the festival’s standout international offerings.

The quartet at the top? Fan favorite “La La Land” (which was named by seven different critics), followed closely by Barry Jenkins’ tender coming-of-age story “Moonlight” (six), Maren Ade’s “Toni Erdmann” (five) and Denis Villeneuve’s “Arrival” (four). However, there were many other votes cast for under-the-radar titles.

Best Actress - Who will dance with Oscar?

22 September 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

While Best Actress remains the most impressively competitive category, the buzz has been so deafening on Natalie Portman and Emma Stone's work in Jackie and La La Land respectively, that we have our first acting nomination "locks" of the year. Yes, I hate to use the word so early -- i generally prefer not to use it until after a film has opened -- but in this case it applies.

Short of either of these well loved actresses murdering someone casually or becoming a spokesperson for Trump on his campaign trail their traction for Best Actress is a done deal. Having now seen both pictures it's tough to imagine either of them missing; their movies are probable Best Picture Contenders which hang on their every flickering bit of feeling. And they've both got multiple "clips" galore for award show reels, clips that will look like "of course she won the Oscar! »

Miles Teller and Emma Watson Join Long List of Alternate Hollywood Casts

22 September 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

By Daniel Crooke

If you've been wondering why Damien Chazelle didn’t cast Whiplash star Miles Teller in his Tiff’s People’s Choice Award winner La La Land, it looks like we have our answer: Teller wanted more money. Editorializing on a celebrity’s character is a tricky line to tow so let's just say this is not surprising. Of much more interest is the alternate casting of a different Emma as the female lead, Emma of the Watson variety.

We'll never be able to speak to what Watson and Teller would have done with the roles that are winning Oscar buzz for Ryan Gosling and (frontrunner?) Emma Stone but it does get the mind racing about favorite almost-casts or last minute drop-outs in movie history. There’s your classic Tom Selleck as Indiana Jones or Winona Ryder as Mary Corleone, or more contemporarily you’ve got Will Smith as Django or, »

The Best Actor Competition... What is Going On Here?

21 September 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Only two men seem to have even remotely locked up their positions in the current Best Actor race and one of those only on reputation / material alone since no one has yet seen Denzel Washington's adaptation of Fences. So is it really Denzel for this third Oscar versus Casey Affleck for his first or is there more going on? There had better be since there are five nomination slots. Ten if you think of it in terms of Golden Globe excitement come year's end.

Since romantic male leads have historically had a tough time finding Oscar nominations from the male-heavy Academy body (romance is for girls. ewwwww, cooties) I know it looks weird to suggest that both Joel Edgerton and Ryan Gosling are looking likely but at this stage the field is what the field is. Gosling in particular, an actor whose work I've always deeply loved don't misunderstand, »

‘La La Land’: Miles Teller Turned Down $4 Million Offer To Star In Damien Chazelle’s Musical – Report

21 September 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Damien Chazelle’s musical “La La Land” was praised at the recent Venice Film Festival, where Emma Stone was awarded the Volpi Cup for Best Actress, and at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it won the People’s Choice Award. The charming film is already garnering Oscar buzz and Stone and Ryan Gosling are a cinema match made in heaven. However, Miles Teller and Emma Watson were originally attached to the film before the “Crazy, Stupid, Love” duo came along. 

While it was known that the two actors had been circling the film, sources told the The Hollywood Reporter that the real reason Teller didn’t get the part was that he had been holding out for more money and wanted more than the $4 million offer. As he waited for a deal that never closed, the window of availability for him got shorter and instead did “Allegiant.” Plus, he »

Miles Teller Reportedly Turned Down $4 Million Offer To Star In ‘La La Land’

With “La La Land” riding out of the gate of awards season with not just critical praise, but adoration, and easily settling into the pole position (at the moment) for Best Picture at the Oscars, no one would’ve thought the same about a year ago. All we really knew was that the always charming Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone were teaming up to star in a musical from “Whiplash” director Damien Chazelle, which on the page sounded promising.

Nine movies that popped at autumn festivals

21 September 2016 3:36 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Screen’s chief film critic Fionnuala Halligan notes the films that stood out from the pack at this year’s Venice, Telluride and Toronto film festivals.1. La-La Land

La La Land

It opened the Venice Film Festival, charged into Telluride and continued to draw queues throughout its Toronto Film Festival run where it won the coveted Audience Award. Saturation coverage for Lionsgate’s uber-romantic Damien Chazelle-directed musical was assisted by Emma Stone’s Best Actress win at Venice. Now it heads to the Zurich and London film festivals before a limited release in the Us on December 2, opening wide on the 16th. Happy Christmas for all concerned: by the end of the fall festival guzzle, La La Land seems to be the one to beat for Best Picture.

2. Nocturnal Animals

A Brutally Honest Festival Breakdown: Winners, Losers, and Oscar Frontrunners

20 September 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Three weeks of film festivals and hundreds of movies later, one stands as the clear winner. Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land” won a prize for Emma Stone in Venice, wowed Telluride, and walked away with the Audience Award in Toronto —and by the end of that festival, people paid “Hamilton”-premiums for tickets to the last screening,

Now, that’s word of mouth.

Of course, “La La Land” isn’t alone in its accolades. Here’s how the players came out at the end of the three festivals.

Winners

A24

Established studio players like Sony Pictures Classics aim their sights at the loyal theatergoers who tend to be older; getting younger cinephiles to come to a theater is harder than ever. Nevertheless, A24 seems to have figured out a way. They acquire movies like excoriated Cannes entry “The Sea of Trees” to go out via their deal with DirectTV and iTunes, »
