‘Captain Fantastic’s’ Matt Ross to Direct ‘Tomorrow and Tomorrow’ for TriStar
Published in 2014, the novel is set in a near future world where humanity’s relationship with evolving virtual environments becomes isolating.
“‘Tomorrow and Tomorrow’ is prescient,” Ross said. “It posits a world not so dissimilar from today, a direction we are all clearly headed where technology has altered the ways in which we interact with each other and the world around us.”
He continued, “I hope to examine, following the book’s lead, the degree to which our lives are enhanced and deeply compromised by the technology that is already an inseparable part of our daily existence. Lynette and I couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with Hannah to translate »

The Batman: Matt Reeves Will Officially Direct and Produce
After an initial rumor, then having the negotiations break down entirely, Warner Bros. has officially hired Matt Reeves to direct The Batman, which will give the newest incarnation of the Caped Crusader a standalone story. Come inside to check out the announcement!
The film industry, like any other business, will go back and forth. We've seen people attached to movies drop out at the last minute, and "done deals" entirely fall apart. A couple weeks ago, after Ben Affleck dropped The Batman directing gig, word came out that Matt Reeves (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes) was in talks to direct.
The internet exploded at the possibility as he's a fantastic storyteller...but then last week, news came out that the negotiations had fallen apart and it looked like the WB would have to keep searching. So imagine our surprise today when they revealed, »

Look for Universal and Jason Blum to score another win at the box office this weekend with the micro-budgeted Get Out, a thriller and social commentary on race relations that marks the feature directorial debut of Jordan Peele (Key & Peele).

President Trump Continues Assault on Media at Cpac: ‘They Make Up Sources’ (Video)
President Donald Trump continued his on-going assault on the media Friday during his Cpac speech, saying, “There are some terrible, dishonest people” among the press and he is going to do something about it. “A few days ago I called the fake news the enemy of the people, and they are.

‘Morning Joe’ Accuses Kellyanne Conway of Being a ‘Leaker Extraordinaire’ (Video)
MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough accused White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway of being a “leaker extraordinaire” on Friday, shortly after President Trump tweeted about leakers in the FBI. Scarborough was discussing how Trump staffers Steve Bannon, Jared Kushner and Reince Priebus might have different views, but don’t leak information about each other. That’s when he threw Conway under the bus. “This could sound ugly but it’s just not. It’s just the truth. I am reporting.

Jordan Peele, James Corden and Nick Kroll’s ’90s Boy Band Only Sang About Hardcore Sex (Video)
Backstreet Boys, *Nsync and 98 Degrees dominated the summer of 1999. The three pop music groups were so popular, readers probably missed out on another star-studded boy band: Thr33way. James Corden, Jordan Peele and Nick Kroll formed the little-known crew back then — the first “honest boy band,” as they called it. And the trio took an interesting approach to the bubble-gum stuff. “We took existing boy band songs, cut through all the innuendo, and just got to the heart of what those songs were really about — hardcore sex,” Kroll said Thursday during a “Late Late Show” sketch.

‘Get Out’ Peels Off $1.8 Million at Thursday Box Office
Jordan Peele’s horror film “Get Out” earned $1.8 million at the Thursday box office when it opened in 2,240 theaters. Heading into the weekend, tracking analysts had anticipated Peele’s directorial debut to open in the high-teen millions with the potential to debut as high as $24 million. The thriller stars Allison Williams, Daniel Kaluuya, Bradley Whitford and Catherine Keener. The question this weekend will be whether “Get Out” can finally dethrone “The Lego Batman Movie” from the top box office spot. If “Get Out” makes $24 million, that would be enough for the film to take the No. 2 spot from “Fifty Shades. »

‘Top Gear’ Hosts Matt LeBlanc, Rory Reid, Chris Harris on New Season (Exclusive)
BBC car-show “Top Gear,” which airs in more than 200 territories and celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, is shifting gear yet again, with the latest season hosted by Matt LeBlanc, Rory Reid and Chris Harris, the latter two having been elevated from supporting roles following the departure of Chris Evans.
“We’ve got big, ambitious films,” series editor Alex Renton tells Variety, reeling off a list of locations where season 24 was shot, including Kazakhstan, Montenegro, Monte Carlo, Cuba and Dubai. “We’ve had more time to prep than we did last [season],” he adds. “It’s big – the ambition is there.”
Last season, the new hosts were only booked in February – following the departure of former frontmen Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May – and the revamped program was on air in May. “That’s terribly tight to turn a show around,” executive producer Clare Pizey says. Since then the team has had time to get to know »
