Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant team up for Stephen Frears' 'Florence'

1 hour ago

After a few weeks' worth of rumors, Pathé International has announced that Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant will officially be teaming up for Stephen Frears' biopic, Florence. Florence stars Streep as the real-life New York heiress Florence Foster Jenkins, whose dreams of becoming a renowned opera singer are stymied by her laughable lack of talent. Grant will play her live-in partner and manager, the English actor St. Clair Bayfield, who guides Jenkins away from the real truth, which proves challenging when Jenkins decides to perform live at Carnegie Hall. The film is currently in pre-production. Michael Kuhn and Tracey Seaward will produce, »

New Line shifts 'Conjuring 2' release date

4 hours ago

Fans of The Conjuring will now have to wait a little longer to watch the further battles of Ed and Lorraine Warren against the supernatural. EW has confirmed that New Line Cinema has moved The Conjuring 2 out of its originally scheduled Oct. 23, 2015 release date. Instead, the company has slotted in an untitled horror film to debut on that day, while the sequel to James Wan's 2013 horror film will now release sometime in 2016. This untitled film will still only have competition from the recently dated Jem and the Holograms adaptation, though the audience crossover shouldn't undermine either film's chances at the box office. »
