‘Orange Is the New Black’ Season 4: Lori Petty Talks Lolly’s Fate

10 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

[Spoiler alert: The following interview discusses plot points from the entire fourth season of “Orange Is the New Black.” Do not read until you’ve watched.]

Lori Petty’s Lolly Whitehill is such a central part of “Orange Is the New Black” season 4, that it’s easy to forget she hasn’t been there all along.

After a brief guest turn in the second season premiere (when Piper was on the plane to Chicago), Lolly returned last season to spook Alex (Laura Prepon), who thought she was sent to kill her. As it turned out Lolly was simply following the voices in her head — a paranoid schizophrenic, Lolly is convinced all government agencies are united in a conspiracy to kill her.

This season, Lolly saves Alex’s life by knocking out the prison guard who turned out to be an undercover assassin, helps Alex bury the body, and later bonds with Healy (Michael J. Harney), who convinces her that it was all in her head. Sadly, it wasn’t, and when the truth is revealed Healy is forced to escort Lolly to psychiatric »

The Bad Blood package - which included film rights to a book proposal about Holmes and Theranos - reportedly attracted bids from Big Short-distributor Paramount and several other studios and mini-majors as well as »

Oscar Race at the 2016 Halfway Mark: Diversity and Confusion

24 June 2016 11:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As 2016 hits the halfway point, the Oscar race is even fuzzier than usual. Two things are clear: The studios are back-loading their awards hopefuls yet again, with launches at fall festivals and/or the fourth quarter; and there are more diverse films in the mix, with at least 16 potential biggies from filmmakers who are women, Asians, Latino-Hispanics, black and seniors (i.e., over 65).

In the past few years, “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Boyhood” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” had been widely screened and started industry buzz by late June. This year, there is a lot of industry enthusiasm for a few January-to-June titles such as “Zootopia,” “The Jungle Book” and “The Witch.” But best-pic contenders? Not so sure.

The festivals so far have offered possibilities like “Manchester by the Sea” and “Loving.” And some pundits anointed “The Birth of a Nation” as the Oscar front-runner last January (a mixed blessing for Fox Searchlight, »

Michael Sheen will make his feature directorial debut on and star in QC Entertainment’s crime thriller “Green River Killer.”

Sheen will portray the serial killer Gary Ridgway, who pleaded guilty in 2003 to 48 charges of first-degree murder of women in the state of Washington during the 1980s and 1990s. He was spared the death penalty in exchange for cooperation in locating the victims.

Christine Birch Replacing Dwight Caines as Sony Pictures Marketing President (Exclusive)

24 June 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A makeover of the Sony Pictures Entertainment film marketing operation that began earlier this year gained steam Friday with the news that the unit’s president of domestic marketing, Dwight Caines, will be replaced by Christine Birch, who returned to the studio a little more than three months ago.

Josh Greenstein, Spe’s president of worldwide marketing and distribution, announced the management makeover in a memo to staff members. He said that Caines, whose contract is up this fall, “wanted to make a change and explore other opportunities after the ‘Ghostbusters’ marketing campaign is completed.”

The female-powered comedy remake premieres July 15 and Caines will leave later in the summer. Although insiders said Caines’ exit was voluntary, it had become clear since Greenstein lured Birch back to Sony — where she previously had worked for 12 years — that she and Caines had overlapping duties. A revamp seemed inevitable.

Legendary Scores McKay, J-Law's "Blood"

24 June 2016 7:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Legendary Pictures has won a heated bidding war for "Bad Blood," a new feature project about the Theranos blood testing company scandal.

Adam McKay ("The Big Short") penned and will direct the project which will star Jennifer Lawrence as 32-year-old entrepreneur Elizabeth Holmes, the founder of the company which at one time was valued at $9 billion.

That value dropped to effectively zero following news that the company is under investigation for inaccurate testing that took place at their California labs. Cms regulators are trying to ban her for two years from owning or operating a blood lab.

McKay, Lawrence, Will Ferrell and Kevin Messick are producing.

New X-men: Apocalypse Concept Art Shows Off Alternate Looks For Cyclops And Mystique

23 June 2016 8:18 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The conclusion of X-Men: Apocalypse saw the team uniting for a training exercise in the Danger Room, sporting some outfits that were a lot more comic accurate than any we'd seen in the franchise previously. As it turns out, we could have seen some even more comic-accurate costumes, as revealed in new concept art posted by Joshua James Shaw. The designs feature diffferent looks for Cyclops and Mystique. The first Scott Summers pic shows an outfit that's incredibly reminiscent of the character's 90's look, while the second is a lot more streamlined with blue highlights. Mystique is shown in a white and grey bodysuit that pays homage to her classic dress. Jennifer Lawrence's face is superimposed on to the concept, while Cyclops bears no resemblance to actor Tye Sheridan, which probably indicates these images were done before casting was complete. Do you like these looks better than what we got in the film? »
