Disney Producer Still Wants To Make Tron 3

11 August 2016 4:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though fans had been holding out hope for another Tron movie following Tron: Legacy for a while, we all eventually gave up on it after Disney pulled the plug on Tron 3, which was going to be subtitled Ascension and see the return of director Joseph Kosinski alongside stars Garrett Hedlung and Olivia Wilde.

Since the film was cancelled, talk of a sequel has mostly died down. Until now, that is. Speaking with Screen Rant in a recent interview, producer Brigham Taylor re-ignited hopes for a third entry into the series, saying the following:

I always hope for that. I just had a wonderful visit to Shanghai, where they have an amazing attraction based on Tron Legacy. The designers just did such an amazing job creating the feeling of stepping onto The Grid, and that indelible visual world that Lisberger created and Kosinski explored… and I think there’s a real »

HBO pulls the plug on rock & roll drama series Vinyl

23 June 2016 12:14 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

HBO has announced it is pulling the plug on its epic music drama Vinyl.

The Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger-executive-produced series, which recently saw the exit of showrunner Terence Winter back in April, had previously been renewed for Season 2 but, according to THR, those plans have now been scrapped.

Vinyl followed New York record exec Richie Finestra, played by Bobby Cannavale, as he attempted to navigate the murky waters of the music business in 1970s. The show averaged 760,000 viewers with its two-hour premiere back in February and ultimately never built up a strong audience. Modest ratings and a hefty price tag ($30 million dollar pilot and $100 million dollar first season) likely both played a role in the decision to throw in the towel.

“After careful consideration, we have decided not to proceed with a second season of Vinyl,” HBO said in a statement. “Obviously, this was not an easy decision. »

Spider-Man: why Elizabeth Banks didn't play Mary Jane

Elizabeth Banks was turned down from a lead role in the first Spider-Man movie because she was deemed "too old"...

She may now be an a Hollywood producer and director, as well as a firmly established actress. But Elizabeth Banks has revealed that she was actually told she wasn’t young enough to play Spidey’s love interest in 2002’s Spider-Man.

At the age of 28, Banks was hardly any older than webslinger Tobey Maguire, but the Mary Jane Watson hopeful was cast in a supporting role because of her age. It was then-18-year-old Kirsten Dunst who ended up being romanced by Peter Parker.

Banks was baffled. “Tobey [Maguire] and I are basically the same age - and I was told I was too old to play her,” she confessed to Glamour. “I was like ‘Oh, okay, that’s what I’ve signed up for.”

Vinyl: Cancelled by HBO; No Season Two After All

[caption id="attachment_51275" align="aligncenter" width="590"] Vinyl TV show; canceled, no season two. (Image via HBO.)[/caption]

The music has stopped. The Vinyl TV show on HBO has been cancelled. This reverses the decision HBO made to renew Vinyl for a second season, on February 18, 2016. Set in the 1970s New York City music scene, the drama stars Bobby Cannavale as Richie Finestra, a record label president who is trying to save his company and his soul without destroying everyone in his path.

The Vinyl TV series cast also includes Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, P.J. Byrne, J.C. MacKenzie, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Juno Temple, Jack Quaid, James Jagger, and Paul Ben-Victor. Created by Mick Jagger, Martin Scorsese, Rich Cohen, and Terence Winter, HBO describes Vinyl as featuring, "the sex- and drug-addled music business of the early 1970s at the dawn of punk, disco and hip-hop." »

Elizabeth Banks Says She Was Deemed ‘Too Old’ for 2002 ‘Spider-Man’ Role

22 June 2016 1:12 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Elizabeth Banks didn’t need “Spidey sense” to pick up on signs of age discrimination when she auditioned for Mary Jane Watson in 2002’s “Spider-Man” at the age of 28.

“Tobey and I are basically the same age — and I was told I was too old to play her,” Banks told Glamour UK, referring to the film’s lead, Tobey Maguire, who is about 16 months her junior. “I was like, ‘Oh, Ok, that’s what I’ve signed up for,'” she said.

The role would go to Kirsten Dunst, who was 18 years old. Banks was cast in the film, but in a supporting part.

Banks’ anecdote is the latest coming from a number of actresses who have spoken out about the age gap between male actors and their female romantic counterparts. In March, Olivia Wilde said she was deemed “too old” to play opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in “The Wolf of Wall Street. »

HBO Pulls U-Turn On Vinyl, Plans For Overhauled Season 2 Scrapped

22 June 2016 12:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

HBO surprised many a viewer back in February when it nailed down plans for Vinyl season 2 despite lowly ratings.

But it seems the network has had a change of heart, with Deadline today relaying news that HBO has pulled a u-turn on its decision, instead opting to pull the plug on the starry rock drama after only one season.

Vinyl, executive produced by Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger, was rooted in the ’70s music industry, revelling in its cocaine-fuelled glory with an ensemble that includes Bobby CannavalePaul Ben-Victor, P. J. Byrne, Max CasellaAto Essandoh and Olivia Wilde.

It was a music drama 20 years in the making, and both Scorsese and Jagger have remained attached from the get-go. In an official statement, HBO said, “after careful consideration, we have decided not to proceed with a second season of Vinyl. Obviously, this was not an easy decision. We have enormous »

Elizabeth Banks lost the Mary Jane role in 'Spider-Man' because she was 'too old'

22 June 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Gorgeous, youthful Olivia Wilde made news recently when she claimed to have lost out on the role of Leonardo DiCaprio’s wife in The Wolf of Wall Street because she was deemed "too old" by the powers-that-be — an especially outrageous story considering the actress is nearly a decade younger than her would-be co-star. Now you can add Elizabeth Banks to the list of actresses who have been judged too haggard and used-up to play the love interest in a major Hollywood film. “I screen-tested for the role of Mary Jane Watson in the first Spider-Man movie, opposite Tobey Maguire,” she told Glamour in a new interview (via the Independent). “Tobey and I are basically the same age and I was told I was too old to play her. I’m like, ‘Oh, okay, that’s what I’ve signed up for.’” To give you a sense of what a late-20s Elizabeth Banks looks like, »
