“I have this fundamental block — maybe I’ll always have it, maybe I’ll get past it — but I am essentially Chiron, I grew up like this kid and there are just certain ceilings that I never can imagine myself breaking through,” says Barry Jenkins, the writer and director of Moonlight, as we sit down in his downtown Los Angeles apartment to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “When they happen,” the 37-year-old continues, “they genuinely are an extreme surprise. And for whatever reason, I can’t get through this block that Chiron does not grow up and make a film that gets eight Academy Award nominations.” He then pauses, smiles and quietly adds, “But I guess he does.”

“On the one hand they are extremely close to me, and on the other hand they have nothing to do with me,” the actress Isabelle Huppert says of the many characters that she’s played, as we sit down at the San Ysidro Ranch near Santa Barbara to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. The Frenchwoman — an Oscar nominee for the first time, at the age of 63, for her portrayal of a rape survivor in Paul Verhoeven‘s 2016 French-language drama Elle — continues, “I have nothing to do with this woman from Elle who runs a video game company — I don’t even know myself how to work my computer — so I’m completely far from the character. I’m not a philosophy teacher [as in Things to Come, her other 2016 film], I never killed my father or my mother [as in 1978’s Violette], so I have »

“I could not have had a happier place to go when I wasn’t in the midst of the tsunami — the wonderful tsunami — that was Hamilton,” says the actor/playwright/composer/songwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda of writing seven original songs for the Disney animated film Moana while simultaneously appearing in the biggest Broadway phenomenon in history. Hamilton, which Miranda created and starred in through last July, won 11 Tony Awards, two of which went to him personally, as did a Pulitzer Prize, a MacArthur ‘Genius Grant’ and a Grammy Award. For Moana, meanwhile, he is nominated for the best original song Oscar, for his song “How Far I’ll Go” — and if he wins, he will become only the 13th — and, at just 36, the youngest — Egot (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony winner) in history.

“It was an experience of collaboration like I’d never had before,” says the actress Emma Stone of the making of La La Land as we sit down at Santa Barbara’s Biltmore Hotel to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. The 28-year-old won the best actress SAG Award and is nominated for the best actress Oscar for her portrayal of Mia, a struggling young actress in love with Ryan Gosling‘s struggling young musician Sebastian, in Damien Chazelle‘s original musical — one of a record-tying 14 nominations bestowed upon it by the Academy — which hits home for her as much as anyone. “I do understand a lot of what Mia’s going through,” she says, noting that reading Chazelle’s script for the first time both “lifted me up and broke my heart. »

Korea’s Star Directors Are Poised for Their Big 2017 Releases

8 February 2017 10:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After a strong year for Korean cinema during which diverse genre movies and returning works from top directors enjoyed popularity, 2017 is likely to see another set of blockbusters from big names.

One of South Korea’s best-known international filmmaker, Bong Joon-ho (“Snowpiercer”), is expected to be the first to make a return. Shot in Seoul, New York, and Vancouver, Bong’s latest, “Okja,” is an international production with an investment of $50 million from Netflix. Brad Pitt’s Plan B is involved as a co-producer. With Korean Ahn Seo-hyun in the lead, the picture also stars Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Lily Collins and Paul Dano.

In “Okja,” a Korean girl risks everything to prevent a multinational company from kidnapping her best friend, a beast called Okja.

The pic will premiere on Netflix in the first half of 2017 and will receive a limited day-and-date theatrical release in the U.S. A theatrical »

“It’s utterly overwhelming,” says the actor Dev Patel of his banner awards season as we sit down at the offices of The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of THR‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. Eight years after Patel first burst onto the scene with Slumdog Millionaire, he has, over the last six months, gone from the triumphant world premiere of the latest film in which he stars, Garth DavisLion, at September’s Toronto International Film Festival (where Slumdog also exploded onto the scene) to a best supporting actor Oscar nomination (his first, and only the third ever bestowed upon an actor of Indian descent), also picking up Golden Globe, SAG, Critics’ Choice and BAFTA noms along the way.

“What I hadn’t done before [Slumdog] was properly struggle,” Patel says, “and in-between that film and this film, »

30 January 2017 4:38 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Lily Collins has no hard feelings about passing the “Mortal Instruments” torch to Freeform’s “Shadowhunters.” The actress, who played Clary Fray in the original film based on Cassandra Clare’s Ya fantasy novels, says she hasn’t watched the series adaptation now airing on Freeform, but she gives it her blessing. “The stories speak for themselves. I love the books, I was so excited to play Clary. It didn’t pan out the way we wanted, but I think it works as a series,” Collins told TheWrap’s Stuart Brazell. “There are so many avenues to explore in the books. »

Sundance Sales Market: Netflix, Amazon Returned With Deep Pockets

29 January 2017 1:38 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Deep-pocketed streaming giants Amazon and Netflix made bold strategic moves and spent handsomely for Sundance Film Festival titles again this year. Netflix paid $12.5 million for Dee Rees’ “Mudbound” set in the post-wwii South, $8 million for the Lily Collins anorexia drama “To the Bone,” $5 million for the Toni Collette-Molly Shannon comedy “Fun Mom Dinner,” and picked up both Jim Strouse’s festival closer “The Incredible Jessica James” and the Teresa Palmer psychological thriller “Berlin Syndrome.” The company also spent big on documentaries, including $5 million for the Russian sports-doping doc “Icarus” — the priciest nonfiction acquisition in Sundance history — and »

Sundance: 13 Biggest Breakout Performances

28 January 2017 12:04 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Sundance Film Festival has an impressive track record of launching major careers — from Jennifer Lawrence (“Winter’s Bone”) to Michael B. Jordan (“Fruitvale Station”) to Ryan Gosling (“The Believer”). As this year’s Park City premieres come to an end, Variety’s critics and reporters offer their favorite breakout performances.

1. Kumail Nanjiani, “The Big Sick

The stand-up comedian and “Silicon Valley” actor proves he’s got the heart of a leading man in “The Big Sick.” Nanjiani partnered with his wife to write the heavily autobiographical story of a Pakistani-comic forced to shake off his arrested development when his girlfriend suffers a life-threatening illness. The film had the audience at its Sundance premiere howling, and went on to top that triumphant debut by landing the biggest deal of the festival, a $12.5 million pact from Amazon, after an all-night bidding war. –Brent Lang

‘To the Bone’: How Marti Noxon Turned Her Anorexia Battles Into a $8 Million Netflix Buy — Sundance 2017

27 January 2017 12:07 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For her feature directorial debut, Marti Noxon goes deep. Her Sundance premiere “To the Bone” is based on her own experiences with eating disorders and recovery, framed around the darkly funny journey of a young anorexic named Ellen (Lily Collins) as she attempts a radical treatment that offers her what is likely her last chance at survival. (No, really, it’s funny.)

Noxon is already a major name in the television space, best known for writing and producing series such as the beloved “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” (where she was mentored by Joss Whedon) and recent smash hit “UNreal.” She’s dabbled in film before, including penning scripts for Rick Rosenthal’s late-’90s romantic comedy “Just a Little Harmless Sex” and the 2011 remake of “Fright Night.” But she’s never done anything quite like “To the Bone.”

2017’s Sundance Sales Are In Overdrive: Here’s Why, Plus See Our Full Deal Scorecard

27 January 2017 8:38 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Sundance Festival reveals the state of the indie film market, and 2017 will be remembered as the year of Amazon Studios and Netflix. And given the festival’s robust TV and Vr programs,, which were dominated by Google and Facebook/Oculus, there’s further digital disruption ahead.

According to one indie distributor, Sundance 2017’s valuations and sales are almost a third higher than last year. Put the same titles into the Sundance market two years ago, and they would have sold for far less. That’s because Netflix and Amazon Studios on the narrative side are dramatically driving up prices. “It’s just ridiculous what the digital guys are doing to the marketplace,” said one veteran indie CEO. “‘The Big Sick’ is a great little movie but it’s a $4 million -$6 million buy. There’s no logic to this model.”

However, Sundance has always been about the haves and the have-nots. »

Exclusive: Lily Collins Makes Good on Golden Globe Promise With Sundance Drama ‘To the Bone’

26 January 2017 8:01 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Based on the real-life experiences of filmmaker Marti Noxon, co-creator of UnREAL and current executive producer of Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce, To the Bone tells the story of 20-year-old Ellen (Lily Collins) and her battle with anorexia. Ellen eventually joins a group home run by an unconventional doctor (Keanu Reeves), where she’s drawn to a male ballet dancer (Alex Sharp).

The film is an impressive and emotional feature directorial debut from Noxon and sees an alarmingly skinny Collins makes good on the promise of her recent Golden Globe nomination.

“I’m trying to start a conversation,” Noxon tells Et about the purpose of her new film. Not interested in normalizing (or glamorizing) anorexia, the filmmaker hopes it will cause more people to talk about the issue. “I’ve gone through it myself and I know a lot of people who have. The focus on body image and disordered eating, I just don »
