Will Smith Replaces Hugh Jackman in 'Collateral Beauty'

3 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Will Smith has signed on to replace Hugh Jackman in the new drama Collateral Beauty for Anonymous Content, PalmStar and Likely Story. Hugh Jackman backed out of the project last month, with Deadline reporting at the time that the filmmakers were going after Johnny Depp to replace him. That isn't happening anymore, with Will Smith now on board to star.

The story centers on a New York advertising executive who suffers a terrible personal tragedy that sends him into a funk. When his co-workers come up with an unorthodox plan to get him out of this depressive state, it works in ways they couldn't have possibly fathomed. Rooney Mara and Jason Segel are also attached to star, although no details were revealed regarding their roles.

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, who directed this summer's indie hit Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, is directing from a screenplay by Allan Loeb (Here Comes the Boom »

Will Smith Is Replacing Hugh Jackman to Star Alongside Rooney Mara in 'Collateral Beauty'

4 hours ago | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Will Smith is in talks to star alongside Rooney Mara in the independently-financed drama “Collateral Beauty,” from the director of the indie hit “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, and writer Allan Loeb. Should a deal be reached, Mr Smith, who will be replacing an exiting Hugh Jackman (who was previously set to star) will star as a New York advertising executive who suffers a personal tragedy, as his business colleagues work to break him out of his depression using an unconventional plan, which, until more is revealed about the film, we know nothing about. I'm thinking of films like David Fincher's "The Game." Also no word on what Rooney Mara's role »

Will Smith in Talks to Replace Hugh Jackman in ‘Collateral Beauty’

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

Will Smith is in talks to take over Hugh Jackman’s lead role in “Collateral Beauty,” sources confirm to Variety.

Rooney Mara is also starring in the drama, set to be the next film from “Me & Earl & The Dying Girl” director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon. The story follows a New York advertising executive (Smith) who experiences a deep personal tragedy. When his colleagues devise an unconventional plan to break him out of his depression, the plan works, but not in a way that anyone imagined.

Jackman dropped out of the project last month due to scheduling conflicts with his Wolverine project for Fox, set to debut March 3, 2017. At the time, Johnny Depp was also being eyed to take on the role.

Gomez-Rejon is directing from Allan Loeb’s script. Palmstar and Likely Story acquired the rights to the script in June, with PalmStar fully financing.

Principal photography is set to start in the fall. »

19 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

First wave of gala premieres also include Noah Baumbach’s Mistress America and Lance Armstrong biopic The Program.

The Zurich Film Festival (Sept 24-Oct 4) has announced the first six titles set to play at its 11th edition.

The gala premieres include the highly-anticipated High-Rise, Ben Wheatley’s adaptation of Jg Ballard’s 1975 novel that stars Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans and Elisabeth Moss.

The film, which is rumoured to be headed for a world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, is a dystopic depiction of a society that starts a class war in a high-rise apartment.

With its position in the festival calendar, Zurich typically secures a strong line-up of films fresh from Toronto and Venice, while also including the best of Cannes, Berlin and Sundance as well as several world premieres.

Lance Armstrong biopic The Program, directed by Stephen Frears, will first bow at Toronto and stars Ben Foster, Chris O’Dowd »

Cate Blanchett, Robert Redford Enter Oscar Race With Truth; Set For October

31 July 2015 1:54 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Conspicuously absent from the Toronto and Venice lineups was Truth, the star-studded journalism drama starring Robert Redford as reporter Dan Rather and Cate Blanchett as CBS News journalist Mary Mapes, and now Sony Pictures Classics has confirmed that the film will indeed enter the Oscar race with a newly set October release.

Zodiac scribe James Vanderbilt will make his directorial debut on the tense drama, about the last days Rather, an anchor, and Mapes, a producer, spent at CBS News after broadcasting a highly damaging and controversial report about how President George W. Bush, then seeking re-election, relied on his family connections to avoid serving in the United States National Guard for over a year during the Vietnam War. The story made national headlines, and its accuracy was soon called into question, resulting in Mapes’ firing and hastening Rather’s retirement from the news network.

Truth certainly has all the trappings of an Oscar contender. »

David Fincher's HBO series Utopia in jeopardy due to budget issues

30 July 2015 8:11 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

David Fincher can't seem to catch a break at HBO; first, production on his 1980s music video comedy Video Synchronicity was halted and now Utopia, an adaptation of the U.K. series of the same name, is in trouble as well. Utopia, which has already cast a number of actors, possibily including Rooney Mara, is dangerously over budget and HBO is struggling to figure out just how to proceed. At the... Read More »

David Fincher's 'Utopia' Starring Rooney Mara In Trouble Over Budget Issues

30 July 2015 6:09 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

While David Fincher is no stranger to small screen success, launching "House Of Cards" over at Netflix where he continues to serve as executive producer, his ventures so far at HBO have hit some major bumps. Last month, production was halted on the set of the '80s-based "Videosyncrazy," facing creative adjustments after the network saw footage from the first four or five episodes. In the meantime, Fincher began work on "Utopia," his ambitious remake of the cult U.K. series, the first season of which he would direct entirely himself, with scripts from Gillian Flynn, and Rooney Mara in the lead role. However, it seems as if things are not working out.

David Fincher HBO Pilot ‘Utopia’ In Jeopardy Over Budget Issues

30 July 2015 4:37 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Prospects appear grim for Utopia, HBO’s drama pilot from David Fincher, an adaptation of the Channel 4 series created by Dennis Kelly. The issue I hear is budgetary, as the director and the pay cable network are yet to agree on a budget for the high-profile, big-scope project. The pilot already has cast a number of actors, including Fincher’s Girl With The Dragon Tattoo star Rooney Mara, though all deals are contingent on a budget agreement, which has not been reached… »

The Weinstein Company’s chief operating officer David Glasser has resigned after seven years at the independent studio.

Glasser said he’s leaving the company in search of a new opportunity. He will stay on to find a replacement as TWC prepares for awards season.

“It has been an incredible run at the Weinstein Company, but I have decided to take some time and explore my options in the industry,” Glasser said in a statement. “I will remain with TWC until November, where I will work closely with our team to set up the incredible slate for 2015/2016.”

Bob and Harvey Weinstein said in a statement that they were “disappointed” to hear of Glasser’s decision. “He has been one of the best executives we’ve had the privilege of working with and we have had a tremendous run together,” the Weinsteins said in a statement. “David will be missed at TWC, »

The Weinstein Company Moves Up Awards Contender 'Carol,' Pushes Back Bradley Cooper-Starring Chef Comedy

30 July 2015 10:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Cannes Review: Todd Haynes' 'Carol' is a Masterful Lesbian Romance Starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara As awards season approaches at an ever-more rapid rate, The Weinstein Company has made a few changes to their upcoming schedule, including an earlier release date for Todd Haynes' awards favorite and Cannes hit,  "Carol." The drama will now open in limited release on November 20, moving up nearly a full month from its original release date of December 18. Starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, the feature will now go up directly against the final "Hunger Games" film, "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 2," but should benefit from an earlier start than was originally planned. TWC has also pushed back their Bradley Cooper chef comedy, once known as "Adam Jones," from October 2 to October 23. The film has also been retitled "Burnt," marking its second title change -- it was originally known as. »

Director Todd Haynes’ popular Cannes Film Festival entry Carol is now slotted to open November 20, the Weinstein Company announced today. That four-week head start positions it earlier than its previous pre-Christmas frame of December 18, but puts the movie starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara into a similar awards season slot as prior TWC successes The Imitation Game and The King’s Speech.

Omar Sharif in 'Doctor Zhivago.' Egyptian star Omar Sharif, 'The Karate Kid' producer Jerry Weintraub: Brief career recaps A little late in the game – and following the longish Theodore Bikel article posted yesterday – below are brief career recaps of a couple of film veterans who died in July 2015: actor Omar Sharif and producer Jerry Weintraub. A follow-up post will offer an overview of the career of peplum (sword-and-sandal movie) actor Jacques Sernas, whose passing earlier this month has been all but ignored by the myopic English-language media. Omar Sharif: Film career beginnings in North Africa The death of Egyptian film actor Omar Sharif at age 83 following a heart attack on July 10 would have been ignored by the English-language media (especially in the U.S.) as well had Sharif remained a star within the Arabic-speaking world. After all, an "international" star is only worth remembering »

Terrence Malick's 'Knight of Cups' Finally Gets a Release Date

23 July 2015 2:51 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Time to celebrate, Terrence Malick fans: the prolific director's long-awaited film Knight of Cups finally has a release date. According the The Hollywood Reporter, the film will hit theaters March 4, 2016 by way of upstart film distributor Broad Green Pictures. The first time we reported on Knight of Cups was back in November of 2011, and ever since then fans of the reclusive director have been clamoring to see the film. The first trailer dropped back in December, and after receiving a rating shortly thereafter, a detailed synopsis was released ahead of the film's premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February. Malick has his detractors, and I think I count as one of them. While I like The Thin Red Line it took me more than a handful of attempts to finally get through Days of Heaven, and I think the only reasons I enjoyed The Tree of Life are the »
