Chloe Grace Moretz on the Staying Power of ‘If I Stay': ‘This Movie Is Going to Hit Home’

4 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“I think this movie is really going to hit home with a lot of people, they’re going to go and see it because it deals with life themes that we all know and we all have seen and felt and heard,” said Chloe Grace Moretz at the Wednesday premiere of “If I Stay” at the Tcl Chinese Theatre, based on the bestselling novel by Gayle Forman. Moretz plays the lead character of Mia Hall. “It’s not just silly, typical fodder. It’s different from anything we’ve seen yet.”

Joshua Leonard, who plays Mia’s father Denny, noted that “If I Stay” received a boost from the box office success of “The Fault in Our Stars.”

“This is embarrassing to admit, but I didn’t know that it was based on a young adult novel when I first read the script,” said Leonard. “Because it’s a very beautiful and evolved script, »

Venice 2014: Get ready for buzzworthy 'Birdman,' Andrew Garfield and Al Pacino

6 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As previously reported by my HitFix colleagues, 2014’s fall festivals represent something of a battle royale for various heavyweight Oscar hopefuls. The oldest fest in the big four, venerable Venice, is up against younger Us counterparts Toronto, Telluride and New York in the perennial fight to deliver a truly memorable Competition. Which films will be left standing once the critics have had their way with them? Contenders hoping to emerge victorious from La Biennale’s royal rumble include Alejandro González Iñárritu’s opening nighter "Birdman" starring Michael Keaton, David Gordon Green’s Al Pacino vehicle "Manglehorn" and Andrew Garfield vs Michael Shannon in Ramin Bahrani’s real estate showdown "99 Homes." As far as awards season goes, for me the big hitter to beat from Cannes is "Foxcatcher," an extraordinary and illuminating piece of filmmaking from Bennett Miller, a director I’ve not been personally persuaded by before now. In the documentary category, »

19 August 2014 12:27 AM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Two of the craziest Hollywood celebs took up the Als Ice Bucket Challenge and it was a treat to watch them!

The not-so-innocent James Franco performed the task pants less. Granted, he wasn.t butt naked like some of the other stars who.ve done the challenge, the Spring Breakers star was spotted wearing just a Moby Dick T-shirt.

You do not realize this until the camera zooms out and you see the soaking wet 127 Hours star dancing around, while holding a paper to shield his privates from view. The note named Zach Braff, Keegan Allen and Joey King as his nominees.

On the other hand, Miley Cyrus decided to tweak the challenge a bit. She completed the Ice Bucket Challenge without using any water! Instead, the rebellious star had a bucket of rice poured on her.

At first, you think it's just another innocently recorded celeb completing the Als Ice Bucket Challenge—but then you remember that it's James Franco and he doesn't do anything innocently. No, he wasn't naked (completely) like some of the other stars who have participated in the new phenomenon. Instead, he wore a Moby Dick T-shirt and, well, nothing else. But you don't realize that until the camera pulls back and all of a sudden, the Hollywood stud is standing there wet and giggling as he dances around with a drenched piece of paper being the only thing between your eyes and his junk.

New Images Of James Franco, Seth Rogen And Danny McBride In The Sound And The Fury

12 August 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

James Franco clearly feels a connection to celebrated author William Faulkner. Last year, he went to the Cannes Film Festival with his adaptation of As I Lay Dying, a project that our reviewers Dominic Mill and Matt Donato called, in turn, “a case of pretention over awareness” and “jumbled.” Now, Franco is taking another Faulkner-derived film to the festival circuit - The Sound and the Fury - and likely hoping for a better reception.

Excitingly, Franco has called on friends and This is the End co-stars Seth Rogen and Danny McBride to join him in the adaptation, which he both directed and starred in. Joey King, Tim Blake Nelson, Ahna O’Reilly, Keegan Allen, Loretta Devine, Scott Haze and Janet Jones all also have roles. Here’s the official synopsis:

Not only is James Franco due to receive the Jaeger-LeCoultre Glory to the Filmmaker Award at the Venice Film Festival in September, but he’s also got a film screening out-of-competition too, his adaptation of the William Faulkner novel, The Sound and the Fury.  With the 71st edition of the festival set to kick off on Wednesday, August 27th, promo material for the official selections is starting to surface and we’ve got four new stills from Franco’s film in the mix.

First look at The Sound and The Fury starring James Franco and Seth Rogen

11 August 2014 12:03 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite his success, and love for comedy, James Franco (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) is slowly making a name for himself as a director of book adaptation, notably the work of Cormac McCarthy and William Faulker, the latter of which is the subject of his latest film, The Sound and The Fury, adapted from the novel by the author.

In addition, and what is becoming a signature of Franco’s directorial efforts, he has called upon his plethora of famous friends, namely Seth Rogen (This Is the End), Danny McBride (Pineapple Express), Tim Blake Nelson (O Brother, Where Art Thou) and Joey King (Oz The Great and Powerful), to help him realise his latest ambitions.

Here’s the official press release, followed by some first look images…

Venice First Look: James Franco, Seth Rogen And Danny McBride In 'The Sound And The Fury'

11 August 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Alongside Cormac McCarthy, William Faulkner is the author of most interest to James Franco. Last year, Franco went to Cannes with his adaptation of "As I Lay Dying," which utilized split screens to capture to the many voices encompassing the story's narrative simultaneously. And while it remains to be seen what aesthetic tricks Franco will bring to his latest Faulkner-derived project, "The Sound And The Fury," the first batch of images from the movie indicate his inclinations. In typical Franco fashion, he's starring in and directing the picture, and he's also called up pals Seth Rogen and Danny McBride for roles alongside Joey King, Tim Blake Nelson, Ahna O'Reilly and more. Here's the official synopsis: Directed by and starring Academy Award nominee James Franco, The Sound and The Fury captures the lives and passions of the Compsons, a once proud Southern family caught in a tragic spiral of loss and misfortune. »

James Franco to be honored for innovation at 2014 Venice Film Festival

8 August 2014 9:04 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Despite his work being sometimes tepidly received at all corners of the globe, James Franco, the filmmaker, has been a major force on the world festival stage. He'll be showing up at Venice once again this year with his William Faulkner adaptation "The Sound and the Fury," but while he's there he'll be picking up some hardware. The festival has announced that Franco has been awarded the Jaeger-LeCoultre Glory to the Filmmaker prize, dedicated to a personality who has made an original contribution to innovation in contemporary cinema. Calling the multi-hyphenate a "relentless 'manufacturer' of cultural imagery" (problem a great, non-value-judgment way of putting it), Venice Film Festival director Alberto Barbera said that Franco "is one of the most versatile and multi-talented auteurs on the current American scene, as an actor in cinema and theatre, director, screenwriter, producer, soap-opera star, video-artist and much more." Barbera went on to note that Franco's latest, »

James Franco feted by Venice

8 August 2014 5:46 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Actor-director to receive Jaeger-Le Coultre filmmaker award.

Actor-director James Franco will receive the Venice Film Festival’s Jaeger-Le Coultre Glory to the Filmmaker award for 2014.

The prize is dedicated to “a personality who has made an original contribution to innovation in contemporary cinema”.

Venice director Alberto Barbera said: “James Franco is one of the most versatile and multi-talented auteurs on the current American scene, as an actor in cinema and theatre, director, screenwriter, producer, soap-opera star, video-artist and much more – indeed, a relentless ‘manufacturer’ of cultural imagery.

“The adaptation of the great classics of American literature, like his new film based on a novel by Faulkner which will be presented in Venice, is a major thread in his creative approach, characterized by boldness, lucidity, courage and self-confidence. These values transform his omnivorous verve into a concept of total art performance, founded on considerable curiosity and intelligence”.

‘Fargo’s’ Colin Hanks on His Emmy Nomination and Playing on Both Sides of the Law

7 August 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Despite “Fargo’s” total 18 Emmy nominations, as well as his own for supporting actor in a miniseries, Colin Hanks is still taken aback by the response the show has garnered.  “It’s an awesome feeling,” he says.  “This is on par with so many of these shows that I admire – that someone would think of ‘Fargo’ in the same breath is sort of surreal.”

Though the role of soft-spoken police officer Gus Grimley had only one scene in the pilot, Hanks was instantly in love with the script and the concept.  “Never mind if I get the part, that’s out of my control,” Hanks says he told himself back in the audition stage, “But this is a fun afternoon.  This is an audition I don’t mind driving across town for.’”

“That pilot script was so gripping and so much fun to read, but more importantly I think was »

Jump Into The UK Trailer For Zach Braff’s ‘Wish I Was Here’

5 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Zack Braff’s Wish I Was Here has already opened over in the States to positive reviews and now it’s set to hit the UK from September 19th, I’m looking forward to seeing the final product!

Veronica Mars was one of the recent success stories on Kickstarter and the power of the fans and Braff used the same model to get his new one going as well. Garden State was such an iconic hit that when it was suggested Braff wanted to follow it up, friends and fans alike jumped onto the project and gave what they could to make it happen, including this writer here.

Wish I Was Here is written, directed and stars Zach Braff, alongside starring Kate Hudson, Pierce Gagnon, Josh Gad, Joey King, Jim Parsons and Ashley Greene. It follows the life of Aidan Bloom (Zach Braff), an L.A-based mid-thirties husband, out-of-work actor and non-practicing Jew. »

Emmys: 'Fargo's' Colin Hanks on 'Demoralizing' Cold Weather and Mastering an Accent (Q&A)

4 August 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in a special Emmy issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Colin Hanks landed his first-ever Emmy nomination for his performance in FX's hit miniseries Fargo — which the actor said was a total "shock." In the 10-part Emmy-contending crime anthology, Hanks, 36, plays Duluth, Minn., police deputy Gus Grimly, a single father struggling with balancing his job duties and protecting his young daughter (Joey King). Here, Hanks reflects on shooting in the near-arctic climes of Canada, bonding with his onscreen love interest (Allison Tolman) and the difficulties of nailing an "inward" character.

The Last of Us movie: Who should play Joel and Ellie? - open thread

1 August 2014 5:36 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A film adaptation of The Last of Us is happening - and there is optimism that it could be great.

For starters, Naughty Dog - the developer behind the PlayStation 3 classic - has been given a large amount of creative control, including having the final say on casting and the director.

Taking place in a devastated, post-apocalyptic world populated by the Infected and hostile bandits, the story follows cynical survivor Joel, who escorts the young Ellie across the United States, in the process forming a close bond with her.

Maisie Williams from Game of Thrones is the frontrunner to play Ellie, but Digital Spy would like to know who you want to see as Joel and Ellie.

Josh Brolin is a fan favourite for Joel, with Hugh Jackman not far behind. But how about Mark Wahlberg, Matthew McConaughey, Hugo Weaving or Dylan McDermott? Perhaps it's a part made for Jon Hamm or Timothy Olyphant. »
