'War of the Roses' adaptation coming to Broadway

30 June 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

There’s a war coming to Broadway—but don’t expect to see dueling Yorks and Lancasters.

Instead, this War of the Roses will see Warren Adler adapting his own 1981 novel, a black comedy that follows an affluent couple (yes, their last name is Rose) as they embark on a contentious divorce. The book was adapted into a movie in 1989, starring Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner, and Danny DeVito, who also directed the film. (It marked the trio’s third time working together, after 1984′s Romancing the Stone and its 1985 sequel The Jewel of the Nile.)

Adler, also the author of Random Hearts, »

Chris Colfer To Star As Noel Coward

14 May 2014 7:33 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

This morning Chris Colfer put this on his Instagram account with the hashtag “Noel”

We now know why. Screen Daily is reporting that Chris has signed to play the lead role in a biopic on the life of the iconic Noel Coward. And he’s not the only one …

Sir Ian McKellen, Vanessa Redgrave and Jonathan Pryce are in talks to join the cast of the feature, which portrays the early life and influences of the famously flamboyant British playwright, producer and wit who penned classics including Private Lives and Blithe Spirit and who worked on films including Brief Encounter and In Which We Serve, for which he was Oscar-nominated.

This could be a huge step forward in Chris’ career, and with Glee ending next year, it could be a perfect springboard for the actor/writer/director/singer/dancer.

‘The Americans’: The Private Lives of Spies

13 March 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

[This is a review of The Americans season 2, episode 3. There will be Spoilers.]

-

The core principle behind the Soviet Directorate S program, as depicted in The Americans, is to make the transition into American life by engaging in a façade so complete and outwardly flawless that no one would suspect deep cover Soviet spies were posing as an ordinary American couple. One of the key components to generating this veneer of sameness is to varnish it with a thick lacquer of the ordinary and the mundane that will give anyone taking a passing or prolonged glimpse absolutely no reason to pause and think about the inner workings of ...

24th Annual Festival of Films from Iran: ‘The Private Lives of Mr. and Mrs. M”

21 February 2014 7:10 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Private Lives of Mr. and Mrs. M

Directed by Rouhollah Hejazi

Iran, 2014

When asked what his wife, Ava, does for a living, Mohsen responds that she’s an interior decorator and graphic artist. It’s a lie, told only to impress Mohsen’s boss who has promoted him, and it’s one even Ava is impressed with later, praising her husband for endowing her with such an interesting occupation. During these early stages of The Private Lives of Mr. and Mrs. M, Ava, played by Mahtab Keramati, is meek and and quiet, taking harsh criticisms from her husband in dutiful silence – he thinks her clumsy and thoughtless and her hobby as a wedding table decorator is meaningless. These demeaning evaluations of Ava are poorly disguised as constructive criticisms meant to empower her, but instead keep her dependent on Mohsen’s “expertise.” However, Hamid Farokhnezhad plays Mohsen with a humorous »

DVD Release: Burton and Taylor

3 February 2014 1:11 PM, PST | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

DVD Release Date: Feb. 4, 2014

Price: DVD $24.98

Studio: BBC

Helena and Dominic are Dick and Liz in Burton and Taylor.

Helena Bonham Carter (The King’s Speech) and Dominic West (Centurion) star as Hollywood’s most famously volatile on-again-off-again couple in the 2013 TV movie Burton and Taylor.

The film is set in 1983, when Elizabeth Taylor and her ex-husband (twice over!) Richard Burton star in a Broadway stage revival of the Noel Coward play Private Lives. With the middle-aged Taylor’s pill-popping and lack of stage experience and Burton’s ongoing struggle to control his drinking and a new girlfriend who may become his wife, the lives—both private and public of the two legendary stars prove to be both tempestuous, dramatic and funny!

Directed by Richard Laxton, the BBC Drama/BBC America co-production was broadcast on BBC America in October, 2013, with Carter garnering a Golden Globe nomination for her take on La Liz. »

Donmar Warehouse extends Coriolanus run – using ticket ballot

16 January 2014 11:20 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Access to tickets for extra performances of acclaimed production starring Tom Hiddleston will be determined by online draw

Theatregoers will get one last chance to catch Tom Hiddleston's critically acclaimed performance as Coriolanus, as the Donmar Warehouse has announced an extension to its sell-out run. Josie Rourke's production will play a further six performances between 10-13 February – but you will have to enter a prize draw in order to win the opportunity to buy tickets.

The ticket lottery, designed to ensure fair access to the extra performances, is the latest measure aimed at improving access to the 250-seat theatre. One of Rourke's first moves as artistic director was the introduction of the Donmar Front Row ticket scheme, through which 300 tickets a week go on sale for performances that are taking place a fortnight later.

Coriolanus is also set for a live broadcast as part of Nt Live on 30 January. »

Seemingly loving this whole social media thing, Paul Schrader was a steady presence through 2013 on Facebook, during the highs and lows of getting his low-budget sizzler "The Canyons" out in the world. Now, he's kicking off 2014 by making a new film, "The Dying of the Light." The director revealed today, using Mark Zuckerberg's site, that Anton Yelchin, Irene Jacob ("Three Colors" trilogy, "The Double Life Of Veronique") and Swedish actor Alexander Karim have rounded out the principal cast for the movie, led by Nicolas Cage, which will start shooting on January 27th. Nicolas Winding Refn (who was attached to helm an earlier incarnation of the movie) will produce the Schrader-penned movie about a C.I.A. agent who starts to become afflicted with blindness while on his last mission. Schrader working with this cast on this material? Yeah, we're excited. Director Rebecca Miller—wife of Daniel Day-Lewis, and helmer »
