Ethan Hawke and Denzel Washington Team for 'Magnificent Seven' Remake

2 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

According to THR, Ethan Hawke is in "final negotiations" to board Fuqua's "The Magnificent Seven" starring Denzel Washington. Hawke and Washington made box office bank back in 2001's "Training Day," which earned both actors Academy Award nominations and Washington an Oscar win for Best Actor. Screenwriters John Lee Hancock ("Saving Mr. Banks") and Nic Pizzolatto (a double WGA winner for HBO's "True Detective") base their script on Kurosawa's 1954 "Seven Samurai" written by Kurosawa, Shinobu Hashimoto and Hideo Oguni. That tale of seven gunslingers banding together to protect a destitute village from blood-seeking bandits was first remade in 1960 as "The Magnificent Seven" directed by John Sturges and starring Steven McQueen. Chris Pratt and Hailey Bennett also boarded the project, which MGM began developing back in 2012 alongside a spate of other titles from its studio library including the forthcoming »

Happy 65th Birthday, Karen Carpenter: 10 Times She Blew Our Minds

12 minutes ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Just like me, you long to be close to Karen Carpenter, the legendary vocalist who would've turned 65 today. Yes, that's right: It's only now that Karen Carpenter, who died 32 years ago, would've been a senior citizen. It's impossible to over-celebrate this woman's contributions to popular music. With her brother Richard and his brilliant arrangements, Karen Carpenter left a legacy of beautiful, palpably emotional music that felt both vulnerable and steely. Her delicate enunciation was a trademark, but the brutal resonance of her smooth alto was always her most beguiling quality. She's the rare singer who felt more emotional the more she was note-precise. A sterling and timeless talent. Let's revisit ten times she blew our minds.  1. The isolated vocals of "Close to You" will make you shiver.  Yes, Whitney Houston's isolated vocals on "How Will I Know" are also a fabulous treat, but there is something about Karen Carpenter »

Netflix sets 'Orange Is The New Black' for June, 'Wet Hot American Summer' for July

20 minutes ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Netflix set its late-spring/summer release schedule on Monday (March 2) morning, setting premiere dates for a slew of specials, returning favorites and new shows. The highest profile of the launch dates is the June 12 drop for Season 3 of "Orange Is The New Black," which has emerged as an Emmy favorite and a SAG Awards winner since the second season hit last June. Although Season 3 will be premiering on June 12, "Orange Is The New Black" will, once again, be submitting for Emmy consideration a season behind. Netflix will also have an important decision on its hands with new Emmy regulations superficially defining comedies as half-hour series and hour-longs as dramas.  Netflix will have to specially petition if the streaming service wants "Orange" to be up for the Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy for the second straight year. "Orange" will also suffer in the newly redefined Guest Acting categories, since Uzo Aduba won »

Can Eric Martsolf ('Days of Our Lives') defend Daytime Emmys title for Best Supporting Actor?

22 minutes ago | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"Days of Our Lives" star Eric Martsolf pulled off an upset victory at the Daytime Emmys in 2014, winning Best Supporting Actor on his first nomination, and he's back on the ballot this year. Can he defend his title? -Break- Daytime Emmys return to TV: Pop Network will broadcast on April 26 Though he was never nominated before last year, the 43-year-old actor is actually one of the elder statesmen in this year's contest. In fact, he's one of only two pre-nominees who never previously competed in the Younger Actor category. "Days" has one other contender on the longlist this year: Blake Berris, who was nominated for Best Younger Actor in 2009. He's hoping for his first bid in the supporting race. But "The Young and the Restless" is the most represented soap on the longlist, with four citations, and three are past Younger Actor-champs. Veteran Kristoff St. John won that category in »

A new family moved into the Modern Family neighborhood on Wednesday night — and that show’s creator is not too happy about it.“Thanks for giving us this award before Empire premiered,” joked Steve Levitan as he accepted his honor from the Family Equality Council for Modern Family’s groundbreaking portrayal of a nontraditional gay family at the Council's annual gala on February 28. His show, which is produced by 20th Century Fox Television, airs on ABC, and it’s been getting pummeled by Empire, the new Fox family drama that recently moved to the same day and time slot as Modern Family. Last Wednesday, Empire scored a whopping 13.9 million viewers and a 15 share, while Modern Family lagged behind it with 9.32 million viewers and a 10. “I’d like to thank Dana Waldman, Gary Newman, and everyone at 20th Century Fox Television for their continued support,” Levitan said diplomatically to that »

Hugh Jackman just couldn't get that mullet to grow fast enough for 'Chappie'

55 minutes ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New York - Since bursting onto the international scene in "X-Men" 15 years ago, Hugh Jackman has almost always played the hero.  It appears 2015 will be the one year where he goes against type.  This summer he'll bring Blackbeard the Pirate to life in Joe Wright's "Pan," but first he makes Dev Patel's life hellish in Neill Blomkamp's "Chappie" which opens on Friday. Set in the near future, "Chappie" is the name of the world's first sentient robot.  Chappie is also the creation of Deon Wilson (Patel), the top robotics scientist at Tetra Vaal, a company contracted to provide non-sentient security bots to the Johannesburg, South Africa police force.  Vincent Moore (Jackman) is a former soldier turned robot designer who has come up with a much more aggressive option called "Moose" (think of a "Robocop" inspired drone with 10 times more firepower). Over the course of the film, Moore's »

An Oscar Voter Challenges Variety’s Suggestions To Fix The Show (Guest Column)

1 hour ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Feldman is a former studio executive, awards consultant, and 27-year member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ public relations branch. His views are his own.

We’ve heard it all before.

When it comes to the Academy Awards broadcast, everyone’s a critic. The show is too long. The jokes are lame. The wrong films were nominated. Everyone knows what’s wrong with the telecast and has at least one idea about how to fix it.

Luckily for the Motion Picture Academy, ABC, Hollywood in general and those of us who toil in it, many members of the press have lots of ideas. In Ramin Setoodeh’s Feb. 24 Variety essay “How to Fix the Oscars in Five Easy Steps,” for example, the journalist proposes improvements to save a ceremony that he says is “facing an identity crisis” as it becomes “more and more insular” each year.
