Britton will play Faye Resnick in the upcoming FX miniseries, which also stars John Travolta as Robert Shapiro; David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian; Courtney Vance as Johnnie Cochran; Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark; and Cuba Gooding Jr. as Simpson.
Britton recently commented that she would “love” to return to Murphy’s “American Horror Story” franchise (she headlined its first season) if the scheduling worked out — but will make a more grounded reappearance in the new 10-episode true crime series, which is based on Jeffrey Toobin’s book “The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson. »

The main problem with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is right there in the title: “Part 1.” Even at 123 minutes, this is still just about half of Suzanne Collins’ final Hunger Games book, and it unfortunately feels like half a movie as well. It’s an introduction lacking a conclusion, all foreplay and no action, a film mostly concerned with tablesetting for its forthcoming sequel. In other words, it’s half the movie that fans of this franchise deserve.
What’s on offer in this partial outing isn’t bad, mind you. As it opens, embattled heroine Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence, brilliant as always) has escaped the clutches of the totalitarian Capitol and is in the keeping of District 13, an area she’d been brought up to believe was long since lost. Now, it’s a top-secret base for those hoping to overthrow the government of evil President Snow »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is the highest grossing film of 2014 (domestically), but as the third entry in an immensely popular four-film series that success was never really in doubt. We still have eight months to wait for the final movie, but Part 1 hits Blu-ray/DVD this week complete with a making-of documentary, featurettes, deleted scenes and more. Also included on the disc is a feature commentary by director Francis Lawrence and one of the producers. Sure he’s not the flashiest Lawrence they could have wrangled for the track, but he was handed the keys to a massive franchise so he probably knows what he’s talking about. Keep reading to see what I heard on the commentary track for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.

Lionsgate had an opportunity to take advantage of the crass commercial stunt of splitting Mockingjay into two films and enrich the world and characters. Somehow, though, they squandered the opportunity and turned out a leaden adventure that did little more than spin its wheels as we are forced to wait for the final chapter. Given the content of Suzanne Collins’ final installment in her Hunger Games trilogy, this could have been a done-in-one, albeit lengthy, final film. However, it was decided to split it into two and here, we should have gotten to know everyone a little better.
After being available for online viewing, Mockingjay – Part 1 arrives on disc Tuesday in the standard combo pack, giving you Blu-ray, DVD, and a digital copy.

It seems Richard Linklater is spending no time resting on his laurels following the Oscar nomination for acclaimed family drama Boyhood, after it was announced that the filmmaker has entered early talks to helm the big-screen adaptation of Maria Semple’s novel Where’d You Go, Bernadette.
News comes by way of The Hollywood Reporter, who state that the project is being overseen by Annapurna Pictures — indie studio behind such titles as Her, American Hustle and The Master — which, should Linklater sign along the dotted line, would mark a reunion between the two parties given that the director worked under Annapurna for 1980s basketball drama, That’s What I’m Talking About, which wrapped production late last year.
Sticking with the family drama, Linklater’s next potential project will orbit around the titular persona, charting her successful life through the eyes of her 15-year-old daughter Bee Branch. What makes the story so intriguing, »

Based on Maria Semple's 2012 best seller, the story follows an agoraphobic architect and mother named Bernadette Branch who goes missing prior to a family trip to Antarctica.
It's the way the narrative unfolds that's distinct, the story is narrated by her 15-year-old daughter Bee Branch and is told through a series of emails, letters, F.B.I. documents, psychiatrist correspondence, and even an emergency room bill.

Sources emphasize that Linklater has not fully committed yet but he has the offer and has shown interest in directing the pic.
The story follows a woman who flees her family after she learns that her daughter wishes to vacation in Antarctica. “The Fault in Our Stars” scribes Michael Weber and Scott Neustadter penned the script.
Linklater recently wrapped baseball-themed coming of age tale “That’s What I’m Talking About” which is also produced by Ellison and stars Wyatt Russell and Ryan Guzman. Though he’s known for personal projects such as “Boyhood,” “Dazed and Confused” and the “Before Sunrise” trilogy, he has also adapted material such as “Bernie, »

After many years as a top studio executive, Amy Pascal has suddenly found herself unceremoniously kicked out of Hollywood’s elite club of decisionmakers into a world that will be alien to her.
For any deposed studio chief accustomed to calling the creative shots — deciding which scripts get bought, which films get made and which ones don’t — losing that power is a crushing ego blow.
The phones will ring less, emails will decline (which in Pascal’s case would be a blessing), and those $300-plus flower arrangements from Mark’s Garden sent by those looking to curry favor will fall off precipitously.
Pascal, 56, will now find herself having to compete with the throngs of Hollywood producers, those with deals on and off the Sony lot, peddling projects and begging for a greenlight.
She will be competing with several heavyweight producers she recently recruited to Sony — including former Warner Bros. »

Lionsgate has today announced that the “next” chapter in the Hunger Games franchise, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, is to be digitally remastered for an IMAX 3D release alongside the standard theatrical edition from November 20th.
As part of the official press release, the first synopsis has also landed online:
With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin), and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.
