New Empire Season 4, Episode 5 Is Getting Delayed

Hey, "Empire" fans. Unfortunately, we have some pretty bad news to deliver in this article. It turns out that it's that time of year again where your favorite show is going to have to take a back seat to Fox's coverage of the Major League Baseball World Series. Yep, that's right. The upcoming episode 5 of this current season 4 is getting delayed for a possible two weeks! It's definitely not going to air next Wednesday, October 25,2017 due to Fox covering the big Game 2 of the World Series. What could make this even worse is if the series is driven to seven games. That means the show would not air on Wednesday night, November 1,2017 as well! This is a big "if" though. It has happened in the past. In fact, it just happened last year causing Empire to be delayed for two weeks. We certainly hope that doesn't happen this year, but

Carol Morley to Direct Patricia Clarkson-Starrer “Out of Blue”

Carol Morley: Paul Marc Mitchell

A neo-noir mystery toplined by Patricia Clarkson and helmed by Carol Morley? Count us in. A press release has announced that Clarkson will star in “Out of Blue,” Morley’s follow-up to 2014’s “The Falling.”

A radical adaptation of Martin Amis’ “Night Train,” “Out of Blue” centers on homicide detective Mike Hoolihan (Clarkson), who is called to investigate an unusual case —the shooting of renowned astrophysicist and black hole expert Jennifer Rockwell. Mike “is affected in ways she struggles to comprehend,” the press release details. “Revolving around contemporary Atlanta and the mysteries of the universe,” the film unravels “a metaphysical mystery, in which Mike’s quest for the truth destabilizes her view of the world, and herself.” Morley penned the script.

Mamie Gummer (“The Good Wife”), Teyonah Parris (“Dear White People”), and Toby Jones (“Captain America”) will co-star.

Camp’s Cairo Cannon (“The Falling”) and Independent’s Luc Roeg (“We Need to Talk About Kevin”) are serving as producers.

“‘The Falling’ established Carol Morley as an exciting and unique voice in British Cinema and it’s a privilege to be producing her new film ‘Out of Blue,’” said Cannon and Roeg. “Carol has written such an original and distinctive screenplay that ‘Out of Blue’ will be sure to consolidate her reputation as one of the UK’s most dynamic directorial talents. Patricia Clarkson is an actor we have always admired and we know her Mike will be an iconic character, a complex woman on screen to watch again and again.”

Set in 1969 at an all-girls school, “The Falling” stars Maisie Williams (“Game of Thrones”) as a student in a high school overtaken by a twitching and fainting epidemic. “Dreams of a Life,” “Edge,” and “The Alcohol Years” are among Morley’s other credits.

Clarkson’s recent credits include “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials,” “Annie,” and “Learning to Drive.” Her latest film, Sally Potter’s “The Party,” premiered at the Berlinale in February. The dark comedy hasn’t found distribution in the U.S. yet. Clarkson has a number of projects in the works, including HBO’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s “Sharp Objects,” and Isabel Coixet’s “The Bookshop,” a drama about a woman who opens a bookstore despite opposition from locals.

Carol Morley to Direct Patricia Clarkson-Starrer “Out of Blue” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Dear White People's biggest success? Getting to grips with colorism

The original film was criticized for the way it dealt with skin-color prejudice within the black community, but the new series shows why skin tone matters

Spoiler alert: plot details of Dear White People are revealed in this blog

In 2012, when Justin Simien was trying to fund Dear White People, the response from black millennials was one of excitement and disbelief: could Simien and his crew really succeed in making such a provocative movie? Two years later, we had our answer. While the film was roundly celebrated, there was criticism for the shoddy way the film handled colorism. It missed the mark with the dark-skinned Coco and her struggle to find acceptance, which was surprising given the film’s overall ability to dismantle stereotypes. Coco is presented as a foil to the wokeness of the main character, Sam: she is the black person fawning over whiteness with the shallow goal
