Film Review: 'Love, Rosie'

23 hours ago | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆Etching another notch on the bedpost of the already crowded ‘will-they-won’t they?’ vein of romantic comedy, Love, Rosie (2014) boasts a fresh-faced cast whose star power will inevitably be bolstered by appearing in this heinious exercise in ignoble triviality. Directed by Christian Ditter and adapted from Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 novel ‘Where Rainbows End’, Love, Rosie is ostensibly the iPhone generation's When Harry Met Sally (1989) - a saccharin-drenched drama that rarely merits the chemistry its central cast ably displays. The film sees Lily Collins plays the titular Rosie opposite Sam Claflin’s Alex, two best friends who’ve grown up together side by side. »

Love, Rosie review: Sam Claflin and Lily Collins's romantic comedy

22 October 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Christian Ditter; Screenwriter: Juliette Towhdi; Starring: Sam Claflin, Lily Collins, Christian Cooke, Tamsin Egerton, Suki Waterhouse, Jaime Winstone; Running time: 102 mins; Certificate: 15

Will they? Won't they? Can men and women ever just be friends? Are they going to make it to the airport on time? Just about every romantic comedy cliché gets ticked off in Love, Rosie, a new British film based on Cecelia Ahern's novel Where Rainbows End. The destination may never be in doubt, but thanks to likeable performances from stars Lily Collins and Sam Claflin this predictable film has a heart and soul that keeps it watchable for the duration.

The two up-and-coming leads play Alex and Rosie, school pals whose tight bond is more brother/sister than boyfriend/girlfriend. A kiss between them on Rosie's birthday is forgotten thanks to the effects of alcohol, and the duo carry on as normal, making plans to »

Lily Collins Learning from Failed Relationships

20 October 2014 5:06 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Lily Collins learns from her failed relationships, but admits ''heartbreak sucks.'' The 25-year-old actress, who previously dated Zac Efron and Jamie Campbell Bower, said: ''You can get different things out of different relationships with different people. You can take every experience and try to learn something about yourself - maybe something that was making you happy or unhappy, qualities you did or didn't like about that person - and take that with you, so at least you know the boundaries of what works for you.'' But the 'Love, Rosie' star insists she doesn't have type when it comes to dating. She told online magazine The Edit: ''When you're just being yourself, that's when you attract someone with the qualities that are most suitable for you. The second you write someone off because they're 'not your type,' you shut yourself off from a person and an experience that might be perfect for you. »

Film Review: ‘Love, Rosie’

18 October 2014 3:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A full quarter-century has passed since Nora Ephron deftly articulated the pitfalls of platonic friendship between men and women in “When Harry Met Sally…”. Yet if “Love, Rosie” is to be believed, a whole new generation of adults has arrived at much the same conclusion Ephron did: In the movies, at least, the sex part always gets in the way. A thoroughly likeable English-language debut for German comedy helmer Christian Ditter, this marzipan-sweet adaptation of Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 bestseller “Where Rainbows End” is elevated by vibrant visuals and the winsome chemistry of Lily Collins and Sam Claflin. Cast as childhood BFFs who dance around their true feelings for each other through multiple decades, countries and partners, this inordinately pretty star pairing lends youthful appeal to a rom-com that could also woo the adult chick-lit crowd.

With its twelve-year narrative timeframe, comfy middle-class Britishisms and sparky pairing of striving, pure-hearted girl and raffish, »

The Mortal Instruments Will Be Revived . . . as a TV Show

13 October 2014 11:35 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones failed (pretty spectacularly) at the box office last year, but the Ya novel is getting a second shot at an adaptation. This time, it's coming to the small screen as "a high-end drama series." In case you haven't read Cassandra Clare's books or seen the movie, the story follows a young girl (played by Lily Collins in the film) who discovers a dangerous and magical city under New York called Downworld. The fantasy books have been bestsellers, so hopefully the show will connect with the built-in fan base more than the movie did. »

'Resident Evil' and 'Mortal Instruments' TV Series in Development

13 October 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

German production company Constantin Film revealed at the Mipcom TV market in Cannes this weekend that they are developing TV show spin-offs for their film franchises Resident Evil and The Mortal Instruments. Here's what Constantin's Martin Moszkowicz had to say in a statement.

"We are moving rapidly. Constantin has a lot of feature film brands and we are moving them into television. For instance, we own the rights to the book series The Mortal Instruments, and we just hired a showrunner in Los Angeles, and our offices in Los Angeles and Canada are starting production next year on at least two or three international shows."

Ed Decter, who most recently produced TV shows such as Unforgettable and The Client List, is reportedly the showrunner attached to The Mortal Instruments, according to The Hollywood Reporter, with production slated to begin sometime next year.

The Mortal Instruments was initially slated to be a feature film franchise, »

‘The Mortal Instruments’ Couldn’t Cut It as Movie Series, So Now It’s a TV Show

13 October 2014 9:06 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Talk about immortality! (Sorry.) The Hollywood Reporter shares that The Mortal Instruments, Cassandra Clare’s bestselling and beloved Ya book franchise (that first started as Harry Potter fan fiction, lest we forget), is bound for the small screen. And, no, you’re not misremembering things here – the series has already made one attempt at adaptation, with last year’s underperforming feature film, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. The Lily Collins-starring feature was originally imagined as a franchise starter, but the film made less than $32m at the American box office (interestingly, the feature did make a grand total of $90.5m with worldwide receipts, but such a take still puts it in the bottom half of Ya adaptations). Although there has been some chatter about lensing a second feature, it now appears that these Instruments are pointing in a different direction. Constantin Film, the rights-holding production company, will now revisit the series as a “high-end drama »

'The Mortal Instruments' Franchise Will Continue as a TV Series

13 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" was a box office disappointment last year, delaying production of its sequel, "City of Ashes." But fans of the Cassandra Clare Ya books will still have a chance to see an adaptation of the series, which is set to move to the small screen as a TV show.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that "The Mortal Instruments" is being developed by production company Constantin Film as "a high-end drama series," which will begin production next year. No network is attached to the project yet.

When it bowed in 2013, "The Mortal Instruments," which starred Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower, banked only $31 million at the domestic box office, a disappointing total that put its big screen follow-up on an indefinite hold. But now, Martin Moszkowicz, head of film and TV projects at Constantin, tells THR that a television adaptation will be more beneficial to Clare's stories. »

"Mortal Instruments" Becomes A TV Series

13 October 2014 1:32 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

After fizzling at the box-office as a potential film franchise, Cassandra Clare's young adult fantasy novel series "The Mortal Instruments" is being re-developed as a TV series.

Ed Decter ("Helix," "Unforgettable," "The Client List") is developing the small screen version for Constantin Film who controls the rights and produced the previous film which starred Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower.

No broadcast partners are yet onboard the new version which is being billed as a high-end drama series that will be able to more faithfully translate Clare's work to the screen. Production aims to get underway next year.

Love Rosie London Premiere Report

7 October 2014 2:46 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Based on Cecelia Ahern’s novel Where Rainbows End, Love, Rosie sees best friends Rosie and Alex continuously miss chances to become a couple – yet their friendship remains. The lead roles in the adaptation are played by Lily Collins and Sam Claflin and the pair, along with other cast members and German director Christian Ditter were on hand in London to talk about the film for the premiere.

Director Christian Ditter

Making Love, Rosie was a big deal for Ditter, who went to Ireland for the first time in his life in order to make it. He explained that he packed only ‘weather gear’ for the journey but was surprised when they didn’t have a single day of rain!

The director had nothing but praise for his lead actors, saying that Lily and Sam were ‘the best people to work with’. His trust allowed him the freedom to improvise »

Let's Cast the 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' Reboot!

16 September 2014 1:13 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Who is the new Jennifer Love Hewitt? Who is her Freddie Prinze Jr.?

We'll always know what you did last summer*. Because Sony won’t let us forget.

Deadline recently reported that the studio is rebooting I Know What You Did Last Summer, the 1997 slasher film about a group of college kids (Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Ryan Phillippe) who cover up their hit-and-run, only to be stalked and slayed by the very person they thought they killed.

Now our ultimate dream cast for this reboot is present day J.Love, Smg, Freddie Prinze, and Ryan P. playing the same roles they did two decades ago (most are available), but since that definitely won’t happen, we brainstormed a few suggestions:

11 September 2014 4:44 PM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Will Christina Applegate star in a spin off from Married with Children? The actress got her start on Married with Children as Christina starred a as the slutty Kelly Bundy and with rumors of a spin off, fans are curious. The original stars were Ed O'Neill, Katey Sagal, Christina Applegate and David Faustino. Here's what we know according to the Hollywood Reporter, the studio "that produced the Fox series is taking out a pitch for a follow-up to Married … With Children" but it won't be based on Christina Applegate's character,  it will be based on Faustino's Bud Bundy. But that could mean cameos or recurring roles for any of the four stars. More TV notes… Lily Collins thought it was the "end of the world" when she lost out on a role in 'Gossip Girl'. The 25-year-old actress was devastated when she failed to land a part »
