Gillian Flynn, who received a Writers Guild of America nomination for adapting her novel “Gone Girl,” has joined “12 Years a Slave” director Steve McQueen to co-write a heist thriller for New Regency.
The project is based on the British miniseries “Widows,” written by Lynda La Plante, and follows four widows of robbers who perished in a botched robbery who join forces and resolve to pull off the raid themselves.
McQueen will also direct the yet-to-be-titled film, which will be produced by Iain Canning and Emile Sherman of See-Saw Films. Canning and Sherman’s producing credits include McQueen’s “Shame” and his upcoming HBO project “Codes of Conduct.”
Flynn also wrote the novels “Sharp Objects” and “Dark Places,” the first of which is being developed for TV while the second was adapted into a film. She has been developing the HBO series “Utopia” with “Gone Girl” director David Fincher.

A version of this story first appeared in the April 10 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Two years ago, Ray Donovan executive producer Bryan Zuriff made headlines when he was arrested in a high-stakes sports-betting sting. With his two years of probation just up (Zuriff also was sentenced to six months of home confinement, 300 hours of community service and a $20,000 fine), he has three projects in play. Arms and the Dudes, a Warners movie with Jonah Hill and Miles Teller, is shooting with Todd Phillips, a good friend of Zuriff's, behind the camera.

Following their gate crashing of the Valentino show during Paris Fashion Week to announce the long awaited Zoolander 2, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson took dim witted male models Derek Zoolander and Hansel (so hot right now) for a spin around Paris to model the Valentino Spring/Summer 2015 collection with models Xiao Wen Ju and Tilda Lindstam. With Tropic Thunder and Iron Man 2 scribe Justin Theroux (who also played Evil DJ in the original) at the helm, filming begins in Rome in the next month or two. Stiller, Wilson, and Christine Taylor are all slated to return, with Will Ferrell all but confirmed to reprise his role as the original's villain Mugatu.

Jones, 31, said she has had "a fantastic, fantastic few months." She was nominated for a best-actress Oscar for her role as Jane Hawking in The Theory of Everything, and she says all the women nominated in that category supported each other.
"It felt very uncompetitive which was really nice," she said. "It felt like we were all supporting each other." (Julianne Moore won for Still Alice. »

Miles Teller was only paid $8,000 for starring in the Oscar-nominated Whiplash. But what’s the motivation for big names like Jennifer Lawrence and Cameron Diaz to work for low salaries (by Hollywood standards)?
While it might feel as though we’re still bombarded with a few too many enviable headlines touting the absurdly high fees taken home by actors, it’s not always quite as glamorous as it seems. In a recent interview with the Times, Miles Teller revealed that he was paid just $8,000 (£5,400), after taxes, for his role in Oscar-winning music drama Whiplash. But the plaudits attached to the film and his performance show that it was a sacrifice worth making for the actor and he’s not the only star to make a well-plotted gamble over his salary.

Once again, the original stripper showers Joe with praise. “He’s going to blow people’s minds in this movie,” Ct explains.
But wait, will all of his practice cause him to upstage Tatum? Is that even possible? We already know the True Blood star will be super naked in the sequel, but he told Et that his Latina lover Sofia Vergara inspired him to sex up his moves. “The Colombian people, they live life to the fullest,” he said. Sooo, she has inspired your dance moves? “The answer is yes.”
Don’t get me wrong — I’m tickled at the thought of this new and improved Joe, but I don’t know how I feel about all of this hype. »

Do Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson deserve seven-figure raises for Fifty Shades Darker? Dana Brunetti, who produced the movie with Michael De Luca and novelist E. L. James, isn't so sure. "Look, when I was starting out and had to cut my teeth and build my résumé to get in, I had to basically work for free on a lot of things. I still take reductions in my fees for the opportunities to do certain things. We got slack on Captain Phillips about how much Barkhad [Abdi] and those guys got paid. Look at Jonah Hill in Wolf of Wall Street. It was great for his career," he explains. "So I'm not going to cry for anybody who wants to be in this business just because a thing they were involved in did very well »

Before this review gets started, it’s best to say I am probably not the target audience for this spiky romantic comedy. Teens and twentysomethings may latch onto it like a classic rite of passage, whereas everybody else could feel a bit left out of the rapid fire battle of wits between a young couple in the aftermath of a brief sexual liaison. Having said that, it has enough redeeming features for all, so let’s get busy with the juicy details.
The story is simple. Megan (Analeigh Tipton) encounters Alec (Miles Teller) on an online dating site, and after the shortest courtship in movie history they wake up together in his apartment. Lust turns to hate and before long she flounces out. There’s one problem – a blizzard has taken over the city and »

Oh hey, Mark. Guess who did a Reddit Ama session? Well, kind of. Tommy Wiseau called someone from Reddit named Victoria, who evidently read him questions over the phone and transcribed his answers as best she could. (There are some hilarious instances of him responding with nonsense, and bless her soul, Victoria writes it all down like the saint she must be; also, Wiseau says "move on, next question," to almost every single question, which is incredible.) We've rounded up the best of Wiseau's/Victoria's responses so you can learn more about his cult flop The Room; his new TV show, The Neighbors (available on Hulu now); his nonexistent autobiography, The Disaster Artist; his branded underwear; and the forthcoming 3-D prequel/sequel to The Room.Who's the biggest celebrity to say they're fans of his work? Well, we met Jonah Hill at a grocery store and seth rogen. The others »

Judd Apatow has an impressive number of big hits on his resume, both as a director and as a producer, but one thing that he has never really specialized in is sequels. There is Anchorman 2, and semi-spinoffs like This Is 40 and Get Him To The Greek, but for the most part the movies he.s made have been largely one-and-done. If it were up to him, however, that wouldn.t be the case, as he has evidently spent a good amount of time trying to fight for a Superbad 2 With his new movie Trainwreck screening as a work in progress cut at SXSW this past weekend, I had the wonderful opportunity to sit down for a one-on-one with Apatow while in Austin, Texas yesterday, and it was during our chat that he revealed his long interest in bringing back Jonah Hill.s Seth, Michael Cera.s Evan, and »
