Charlize Theron Lines Up 'Everything Nice,' Idris Elba Joins 'The Jungle Book' & More

7 March 2014 11:31 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If the Internet can’t convince Eon Productions to cast Idris Elba as James Bond, perhaps his new role can land him a villain gig in Bond 24. Elba is set to voice Shere Khan in Disney and Jon Favreau's take on “The Jungle Book.” Favreau will use live-action and VFX to bring the story to the screen. Expect to see this sooner than later as Disney is neck and neck with Warner Bros. with their own version of Rudyard Kipling’s classic.

Warren Beatty’s Howard Hughes Biopic Takes Off

25 February 2014 10:30 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

You may remember Martin Scorsese’s Howard Hughes biopic The Aviator from a decade ago (feeling old), but at the time there were many rumoured Hughes biopics making the rounds, one of which was to be a labour of love from Warren Beatty. In fact, Beatty has been working on his own biopic for the last two decades. Beatty has received funding towards the $26.7 million budget via two billionaires Ron Burkle and Steve Bing, with support from New Regency and RatPac Entertainment.

Beatty is set to star as Hughes while also directing, but the focus of the film will be on Hughes’ assistant and their lover, played by Alden Ehrenreich and Lily Collins respectively. Beatty hasn’t appeared in a film since 2001′s Town & COUNTRYand hasn’t directed since 1998′s Bulworth. But then again, Beatty’s never overloaded himself with work.

The upcoming biopic has already shot some footage, but »

Psssst. Oscar voting closed 2 hours ago. Can you believe we're almost there?!

Film School Rejects good god, Warren Beatty is still going to make that Howard Hughes picture and it started shooting today (!!!) Lily Collins, Alden Ehrenreich, The Bening and the rumors go... Jack Nicholson to co-star

IndieWire porn stars pick the Oscars

E Online Jared Leto's mom reacts to going to the Oscars

/Film Sony wants to release a Spider-Man movie every year now. As I've predicted one day film and television will totally merge since tv got way more cinematic and nearly all movies Hollywood wants to fund are basically tv series with huge budgets that franchise their way across decades with new "episodes"

Variety Oscars are always under heat about omissions and hierarchies of the In Memoriam section. A sordid thing for controversy but it's true. People are always upset by something in it

Warren Beatty’s Long-Awaited Howard Hughes Project Finally Gets its Wings

25 February 2014 3:00 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It’s hard to imagine, but it’s been thirteen years since screen legend Warren Beatty has starred in a film, the last time being in 2001′s Town & Country. Even longer than Beatty’s absence from the silver screen is his desire to get a project off the ground centered around famed reclused aviator Howard Hughes. After 20 years of negotiating, Beatty’s got the financing and the rest of cast on board to go forward with filming his untitled pet project, in which he’ll direct and star as Hughes and be supported by a talented cast. The film isn’t a biopic of the iconic pilot — those duties go to 2004′s The Aviator, starring Leonardo DiCaprio — but rather a story about Hughes’ loyal (and likely long-suffering) assistant and the assistant’s love interest, played by Alden Ehrenreich (Beautiful Creatures) and Lily Collins (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones), respectively.

Warren Beatty’s Howard Hughes Film Finally Begins Production

25 February 2014 9:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Howard Hughes seems to be excellent fodder for cinema, and not just because of his involvement in the medium. He was the subject of Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator, the template for a James Bond villain (in Diamonds are Forever), and has been referenced in The Simpsons. Now, the iconic billionaire recluse will be played by another icon of sorts, as Warren Beatty finally gets things underway for his long-gestating Howard Hughes film.

Beatty still plans to take on the part of the influential icon, in a film directed by himself, but Hughes is not the focus of the film; that honor goes to Alden Ehrenreich, playing Hughes’s young assistant who falls for a young woman (Lily Collins) who may or may not also be falling for Hughes. Collins replaces Felicity Jones, the actress long attached to the project who has since dropped out. The rest of the cast »

Warren Beatty’s Long-Gestating Howard Hughes Film Begins Production; Alden Ehrenreich and Lily Collins to Star

24 February 2014 11:38 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Almost three years ago, we reported that Warren Beatty was planning to direct his first movie since 1998's Bulworth.  Initial reports said that the film might be a comedy about an elderly Howard Hughes (played by Beatty) having an affair with a younger woman.  At the time, Beatty's prospects for the cast included Andrew Garfield, Alec Baldwin, Shia Labeouf, Jack Nicholson, Evan Rachel Wood, Rooney Mara, and wife Annette Bening.  However, word on the film went silent, and it looked like it had slipped into development hell. But now it looks like Beatty has the budget ($26.7 million) and the cast to make the project a reality, and shooting is already underway.  Hit the jump for more. According to Deadline, Beatty will still play Hughes, but the focus of the film will be the love story between Hughes assistant (played by Beautiful Creatures' Alden Ehrenreich) and a young woman (played by »

Warren Beatty Begins Work on Howard Hughes Film with Alden Ehrenreich

24 February 2014 11:00 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It has been 16 years since we last saw a new feature film directed by Warren Beatty, but it seems the wait is now over as Deadline reports he's finally underway on his long-gestating Howard Hughes feature with production already underway. The film won't focus specifically on Hughes (to be played by Beatty), but instead center on Hughes' assistant (perhaps Glenn Odekirk) to be played by Alden Ehrenreich (pictured) and his romance with a young woman (Lily Collins). Also starring are Beatty's wife, Annette Bening, Matthew Broderick and word Jack Nicholson may even find a place among the cast. The casting, as far as I'm concerned, is very interesting. Especially considering Ehrenreich, to me, is something of a cross between Leonardo DiCaprio, who previously played Hughes in Martin Scorsese's The Aviator, and a young Nicholson. Should Nicholson sign on to co-star it would create a weird level of familiarity, especially »

Warren Beatty's Howard Hughes Film To Star Alden Ehrenreich & Lily Collins, Production Now Underway

24 February 2014 10:40 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

After more than a decade being Mia at the multiplex, bona fide legend Warren Beatty is coming back with a new film. Though recent reports suggested he might've abandoned playing Howard Hughes, not to worry, as Beatty will indeed play the famed billionaire recluse in a movie that's not quite about Hughes at all. But let's get some details out of the way first: Alden Ehrenreich and Lily Collins (replacing the long-attached Felicity Jones) will star in the flick, with Deadline adding that Annette Bening and Matthew Broderick are also expected to appear in the movie, with longtime Beatty pal Jack Nicholson also a (fingers crossed) possibility. As for the story, it will actually center on Hughes' assistant (Ehrenreich) who falls and his romance with a young woman (Collins). However, previous plot details for the film suggested the woman would eventually fall for Hughes himself, though it's unclear if that's still the case. »

Why You Should Fall in Love with Richard Lagravenese’s ‘Beautiful Creatures’

13 February 2014 9:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Launching a new take on the box office-saturated “Paranormal Teen Romance” genre in early 2013 was perhaps not a good idea. Twilight fans were still reeling from the end of their beloved franchise, The Hunger Games Mockingjays were busy gearing up to share what had become a hugely successful franchise, Divergent devotees were busy dream-casting, and Percy Jackson fans (fan?) were far too consumed with celebrating that their (his or her?) series was not dead. Even with strong shelf sales, Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl’s best-selling “Caster Chronicles” series didn’t seem poised to be the kind of cinematic juggernaut that could compete with Twilight and The Hunger Games and whatever would come next – it simply didn’t have the heat to push it over the top – which is a damn shame, because the duo’s Gothic romance spawned one hell of an underrated feature in Richard Lagravenese’s Beautiful Creatures.

Terence Johnson’s Top 10 Films of 2013

9 January 2014 6:36 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Terence Johnson

Managing Editor

Out of all the years I’ve been covering film, 2013 certainly ranks near the top of film years that make it hard to craft a top 10. There were so many different permutations of this top 10 list that I had to walk away from the computer for five minutes to regroup. However, I think that the battle was well worth it as the 10 films I selected accurately reflect the films that really spoke to me this year.

10. Beautiful Creatures dir. Richard Lagravenese

This was a late edition to my top 10. And by late I mean it was added last night. But much like back in February, I wasn’t able to resist the charms of this enough to leave it out of my 10. Beautiful Creatures is just a treat of a film from the Southern setting to the supernatural goings on to the pure scenery chewing of the acting, »
