The 70-year-old veteran producer has been looking to secure a new home for his movie releases since October, when Disney opted not to renew his deal beyond this year.
“Jerry Bruckheimer is one of the most creative and prolific producers in motion picture history,” said Paramount Pictures Chairman and CEO Brad Grey. “His signature style has attracted huge global audiences and we are thrilled to have him back in the Paramount family.”
“It is great to be back at Paramount,” Bruckheimer said. “I look forward to working with Brad Grey and his entire team.”

Last month we reported that Jonah Hill and Emma Stone had both been offered roles in Sony’s very long gestated Ghostbusters 3. The news came as a sign of good luck for the forever plagued project that has hit speed bump after speed bump, well now it seems that Stone has declined the chance to appear in the film.
Hill is reportedly still considering the role and has yet to respond to his offer, although things aren’t looking too good for Sony’s third phantom-phasing film in their long dead franchise. Ever since Bill Murray declared his lack of interest in returning for Ghostbusters 3 in any capacity the film has had no small amount of trouble receiving the green light, with Dan Aykroyd seemingly never losing hope that the project will one day be made. It’s currently unknown why Stone declined her offer assuming of couse »

If you’re the sort of person who has enjoyed Jonah Hill’s acting but always felt like maybe he wasn’t quite goofy-looking enough, The Wolf of Wall Street just might be the movie for you. A new clip from the film features Hill in all his awkward, goofy glory as Donnie Azoff, a man who falls under the spell of stock broker Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) after learning that he makes a hell of a lot of money.
Just a little manners tip for the socially awkward: don’t walk up to a stranger in a restaurant and ask him how much money he makes. That’s way rude, man.
In Azoff’s case, though, it leads to him working with Belfort to make millions of dollars by defrauding investors. That makes The Wolf of Wall Street a little bit different than all the previous films about Wall Street, »

A few weeks back it was reported that both Jonah Hill and Emma Stone were offered parts in Ghostbusters III. Today more non-news surrounding this casting update has come to light, and we still don't care.
According to Schmoes Know and their tipster known as The Phantom, Emma Stone is passing on the role of “Anna,” but Jonah Hill still has an offer out for “Jeremy”. Interesting enough, Sony wants two big stars signed on, or they will not greenlight the picture."
More as it inevitably comes.

With the lead actors taken care of (for now) we move to Best Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress, two races that are likely to be the most competitive this season as neither can claim they are locked in. While Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) remains my #1 in the Supporting Actor category any number of contenders could move into that slot should someone enjoy a good run in the precursors or end up snubbed at the upcoming SAG or Golden Globe nominations. In the Supporting Actress category for the longest time it was a race between Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave) and Oprah Winfrey (Lee Daniels' The Butler), but things have changed a bit over recent weeks and it's becoming increasingly difficult to call anyone a frontrunner in this category. I still have my Screenplay predictions to update today and they are coming shortly, but if you missed my Best Picture »

Jerry Bruckheimer is reportedly looking to set up a lucrative film production deal at Paramount Pictures, returning to the studio where he and former producing partner, the late Don Simpson, had a long run in the 1980s. »

The precursor awards are underway and I waited until seeing the likes of American Hustle, Saving Mr. Banks and Love Survivor before rushing to update my predictions once again. That said, after the Gotham Awards, New York Film Critics Awards, and National Board of Review announcing their favorites it's time to start offering some updates as the only major Oscar player I have yet to see is Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street, but even that we have some advance buzz concerning and even more is on the way as additional New York and Los Angeles critics will be seeing it over the weekend. Now for today's action where I'll be updating all the major categories from Best Picture to Best Animation over the course of the day. First off, we'll begin with Best Picture and Best Director, which are detailed below along with links to browse my complete, »

It seems that everyone in the film community is buzzing for The Wolf Of Wall Street and for obvious reasons. You've got Martin Scorsese directing, Terrence Winter writing, and Leonardo DiCaprio starring in a real-life gangster-ish tale of greed, corruption, and excess. What's not to love? Added to this bouquet of awesome is a stellar roster of co-stars, one of which includes Jonah Hill, who has really made a go of his career from comedy to drama (and back again). Playing »

We might be going out on a limb here, but we suspect that 2014 is the year that Ghostbusters 3, in one form or another, finally gets going. You don't need us to tell you that the movie has been in gestation for a very, very long time.
The latest we'd heard on it was the rumour that both Jonah Hill and Emma Stone had been offered key roles in the new Ghostbusters film. They were being offered the roles of Jeremy and Anna in the movie, and SchmoesKnow is now reporting that Emma Stone for one has turned down the role.
Furthermore, the site reports that Jonah Hill is still to decide whether he wants in or not, with its source saying that "Sony wants two big stars signed on or »
Ghostbusters 3 has been in the works for nearly 20 years, but only the past ten have seen any real movement on the project – and none of it has been particularly significant. Once it was revealed that Bill Murray wouldn’t be involved (for the third time, at least), Internet enthusiasm for the film sort of deflated.
Still, casting rumors have been popping up in the time since, the latest of which involved Superbad stars Emma Stone and Jonah Hill possibly reuniting for Ghostbusters 3, playing an “Anna” and a “Jeremy,” respectively. Other than the characters’ names, nothing is known about the roles, but based on Dan Akyroyd’s ...

Last month, we reported that Emma Stone and Jonah Hill were offered roles in Ghostbusters 3. Today we have word that Emma Stone has passed on the role of Anna, while Jonah Hill has not decided whether or not to take the role of Jeremy.
Here's what Schmoes Know's source dubbed "The Phantom" had to say.
While no story details have been confirmed by the studio, it has been long believed that the plot follows a new crop of Ghostbusters, trained by Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson from the original trilogy.
We also reported last month that production was being eyed for a spring 2014 start in Cleveland, although it seems this long-gestating sequel is still »
The Schmoes' scooper "The Phantom" is back with an update on the progress of the Ghostbusters threequel, and there's more bad news for the already very troubled flick. It seems Emma Stone has passed on the role of “Anna” and although Jonah Hill still has an offer out for “Jeremy”, word is that without at least two big name stars locked in Sony will not green light the picture. So if Hill also passes it will Not bode well for this movie to ever see the light of day unless two suitably starry replacements scan be found sharpish. More at the link below. »

Though Martin Scorsese has been branching out into a number of genres over the past few years—including psychological thrillers (Shutter Island) and family films (Hugo)—he’s returning to the world of black comedy with this month’s The Wolf of Wall Street. The film is based on the memoir of Jordan Belfort and stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a hard-partying, drug-addicted stockbroker who was indicted in 1998 for security fraud and money laundering and served a 22-month federal prison stretch. THR has been doing a number of roundtable interviews for this year’s awards contenders, but today they’ve unveiled a treat by way of a 25-minute video interview with Scorsese, DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, and screenwriter Terence Winter about all things Wolf of Wall Street. The interview is a great watch, as they discuss their first meetings with each other, how Hill won the role, Steven Spielberg showing up on set, »

We've highlighted one of the awards season roundtables from The Hollywood Reporter featuring the directors of some of the likely Oscar contenders, and the trade has plenty more extended talks that you can check out with writers, actors, actresses, cinematographers and more right here. Now we have a roundtable focusing on one specific film: The Wolf of Wall Street. Legendary director Martin Scorsese sits down with Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and screenwriter Terrence Winter for a 26-minute chat about the film, including the difficulty of cutting down the film from an initial 4-hour cut and much more. Watch! Here's the 26-minute roundtable for Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street from THR: The Wolf of Wall Street is directed by legendary Academy Award winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese, of everything from Taxi Driver to Raging Bull to Cape Fear to Goodfellas to Casino to Aviator to Departed to Shutter Island and Hugo recently. »

The wolf is almost upon us. Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf Of Wall Street,” that is, the director's “Goodfellas”-esque look at the gangster-like cheats and liars in the New York stockbroker world in the mid 90s. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Jean Dujardin, Margot Robbie, Kyle Chandler and many more (including directors Rob Reiner and Spike Jonze) as a tease, a new poster and TV spot have been unveiled along with a almost 30 minute THR roundtable interview with Scorsese, DiCaprio, Hill and screenwriter Terence Winter (the creator and head writer of Scorsese’s “Boardwalk Empire”). What do we learn in the Q&A? Lots. We know the movie almost got an Nc-17 rating, and the 3-hour-long movie underwent "multiple rounds" of cuts with the MPAA. Though Paramount chairman Brad Grey says, "There were really not major cuts in this movie; there were trims." DiCaprio calls it a “hard R [rated]” film. »

In this exclusive clip from Martin Scorsese's latest film, based on former stockbroker Jordan Belfort's memoir of the same name, a wide-eyed Donnie Azoff (Jonah Hill) approaches Jordan (DiCaprio) with one question: "You make a lot of money?"
After all, Jordan has a gleaming new Jag sitting outside in the parking lot, yet they live in the same building.
"Yeah, I do all right for myself," Jordan answers nonchalantly. Of course, to him, "all right" means $72,000 a month. We wonder what "doing great" would mean.

There are a lot of exciting films set to premiere this December, but I think just about everyone in the film community is ready for The Wolf Of Wall Street. Martin Scorsese’s latest feature has been a long time coming, facing its share of adversity and a number of drastic cuts to keep down the runtime. Clocking in at a final three hours (give or take), the film will finally hit cinemas on Christmas Day. The director and stars of The Wolf of Wall Street certainly seem to think that the wait has been worth it, as they express their thoughts on the production in a 25 minute roundtable discussion of the film.
Director Martin Scorsese, screenwriter Terence Winter, and stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill recently sat down with THR (via The Film Stage) for an extended conversation about their upcoming movie. Scorsese as always talks a mile a minute, »

This story first appeared in the Dec. 13 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. In 2007, Leonardo DiCaprio won a bidding war against Brad Pitt for the rights to Jordan Belfort's memoir The Wolf of Wall Street, which followed the downward spiral (and eventual jailing) of one of the Street's brightest stars as he got hooked on drugs and prostitutes -- while the FBI nipped at his heels. “It was almost like a modern-day Caligula," says DiCaprio, who stars as Belfort alongside Jonah Hill as his henchman Donnie Azoff in a movie that also features Matthew McConaughey and Margot

The director has revealed that, despite an extended silence regarding the project, the Frank Sinatra biopic is not off the table.
"That project's still going strong," he told Swide.
