'She's All That' Remake Coming from Spike Lee's Wife

8 April 2015 7:50 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

She's All That helped usher in a new era of teen movies, arriving at the tail end of the 90s and preceding American Pie by a couple of months. The film that originally starred Freddie Prinze Jr. and Rachael Leigh Cook is getting the remake it deserves, as a new twist on the tale gears up at the Weinstein Company. Spike Lee's wife Tonya Lewis Lee will produce with acclaimed stage director Kenny Leon directing. It is not stated in the initial report, but it is expected that the main cast will be African-American. The Wrap calls it 'diverse' casting.

The Weinstein Company and Miramax released the original She's All That in January of 1999 after a fairly long drought of teen movies, kicking the popular 80s genre back into gear. The film grossed more than $100 million worldwide. Represenatives at Weinstein Co. did not immediately comment on this new take on the romantic comedy, »

A 'She's All That' Remake Is in the Works: Report

8 April 2015 6:40 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Hit 1999 teen flick "She's All That" is getting a makeover, with reports suggesting that a remake starring a more diverse cast is in the works.

The Tracking Board writes that Miramax and The Weinstein Company are teaming up to remake the property, with director Kenny Leon attached. Leon is also directing NBC's upcoming live staging of "The Wiz," and has helmed several updates on classic films and plays, including the 2012 Lifetime version of "Steel Magnolias."

In addition to Leon, the creative team also reportedly includes Tonya Lewis Lee (wife of Spike Lee), who's producing the project. TheWrap reports that filmmakers are looking to cast more diverse leads this time around.

"She's All That" -- a take on the "Pygmalion" tale that inspired "My Fair Lady" -- starred Freddie Prinze Jr. as a jock who makes a bet that he can turn an ugly duckling (Rachael Leigh Cook) into prom queen. »

Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer Reflect at ‘The Sound of Music’s’ 50th Anniversary

27 March 2015 2:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Whether it was their first time seeing the film or their 21st, audience members Thursday night were treated to a magical 50th anniversary screening of “The Sound of Music,” Robert Wise’s beloved Austrian Alps classic that attending Oscar-winning star Christopher Plummer called “the primal family movie of all time” and a “fairy tale come to life.”

“It’s the last sort of bastion of peace and innocence in a very horrific sort of time,” the winsome actor told the crowd gathered at Tcl Chinese Theater Imax for the TCM Classic Film Festival Hollywood 2015 kickoff event.

Plummer’s co-star and close friend Julie Andrews was also at the fete, sparring jocularly with her onscreen Captain Von Trapp in a way so charming and effortless it begs the question how these two never ran off together in real life as they do in the film.

Christopher Plummer had his hands and feet immortalized at @chinesetheatres today. »

'Pretty Woman': 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Julia Roberts Classic

23 March 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

No one expected much from "Pretty Woman" when they were making it. It was a modestly-budgeted romantic comedy whose stars were Richard Gere (then in the depths of a career slump) and Eric Roberts's kid sister. But when the movie was released, 25 years ago this week (on March 23, 1990), the project was transformed from overlooked stepsister to box office royalty. Mirroring her on-screen Cinderella makeover, Julia Roberts went from little-known ingenue to queen of Hollywood. Plus, the film saved Gere's career and (along with 1989's "When Harry Met Sally") revived the romantic comedy genre in Hollywood.

A quarter-century later, "Pretty Woman" remains a fan favorite, one you've seen a million times on cable. Even so, there's much you may not know about the movie -- the difficulties in casting (Gere and Roberts weren't anyone's first, second, or third choices), crises on the set, what was left out of the final film, »

Daily | Leonard Nimoy, 1931 – 2015

27 February 2015 11:08 AM, PST | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

"Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut Star Trek, died on Friday morning," reports Virginia Heffernan in the New York Times. But of course, he was more than Spock, taking on dozens of other roles in film and television. stage. He was a photographer, a singer ("The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins"), a poet and director (Three Men and a Baby). More Halperin at Flavorwire: "Beyond the rest of his wildly extensive filmography, he was also greatly immersed in the theater world, appearing in such infamous plays as Equus, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Twelfth Night and My Fair Lady." We're collecting remembrances. » - David Hudson »

From "The Good TheBad And TheUgly.Ca, Sneak Peek '...the good, the bad and the ugly..." in director Matthew Vaughn's "Kingsman: The Secret Service", starring Colin Firth:

Michael Stevens for 'The Good' :

"Based on the 'graphic' graphic novel series by Mark Millar of "Kick-Ass" fame, director Matthew Vaughn's amusing take on the spy-film genre, takes delight in adapting the story of a gentlemen-run clandestine organization that recruits a 'Marty McFly'-like son (Taron Egerton) of a top field agent killed in the line of duty...

'Birdman' cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki joins exclusive club with Oscar win

22 February 2015 7:29 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

By winning the Best Cinematography Oscar for a second year in a row, "Birdman" director of photography Emmanuel Lubezki has joined a truly elite club whose ranks haven't been breached in nearly two decades. Only four other cinematographers have won the prize in two consecutive years. The last time it happened was in 1994 and 1995, when John Toll won for Edward Zwick's "Legends of the Fall" and Mel Gibson's "Braveheart" respectively. Before that you have to go all the way back to the late '40s, when Winton Hoch won in 1948 (Victor Fleming's "Joan of Arc" with Ingrid Bergman) and 1949 (John Ford's western "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon"). Both victories came in the color category, as the Academy awarded prizes separately for black-and-white and color photography from 1939 to 1956. Leon Shamroy also won back-to-back color cinematography Oscars, for Henry King's 1944 Woodrow Wilson biopic "Wilson" and John M. Stahl »

The Duff – The Review

20 February 2015 6:01 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I’m at a demographic disadvantage regarding The Duff, being neither an adolescent girl nor someone who enjoys comedies that aren’t funny. Based on the ads, you might expect this new teen clique comedy to have some bite – a Mean Girls for a new generation. Duff is an acronym for ‘Designated Ugly Fat Friend’, someone that more attractive girls let hang around with them for contrast – a “gatekeeper to better-looking friends” – which gives it about the most mean-spirited movie title of late. The title role is played by Mae Whitman, who is short, has distracting eyebrows, and is too old for the role, but she’s neither fat nor ugly, not anymore so than Audrey Hepburn was street trash because her face was dirty in My Fair Lady or Rachel Leigh Cook couldn’t get noticed because she wore glasses in She’S All That.

Interview: Husbands of the Stage Musical ‘The First Wives Club’

18 February 2015 11:33 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Like the recent movie-to-stage-musical adaptations, “The Producers” and “Young Frankenstein,” Chicago has become the proving ground before a Broadway premiere. The latest is almost a no-brainer, “The First Wives Club,” adapted from the 1996 film that starred Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton.

The big news is that the original song writing team of Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier and Eddie Holland (Holland-Dozier-Holland) have reunited to write new music for the show, adding to their familiar hits “Stop in the Name of Love,” and “Reach Out I’ll Be There.” 22 new songs have been added to “The First Wives Club” stage musical, representing the first new output in years from the famous songwriting trio.

DVD Review: "Kink" (2014), Inside The "Real" World Of Bdsm

16 February 2015 3:03 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

"Sex is only dirty if you're doing it right."- Woody Allen

Well, "Fifty Shades of Grey" has finally opened and- predictably- it looks to be an international blockbuster. All over the world, Bdsm ("Bondage, Discipline, Submission and Masochism", for the uninitiated) will be the flavor of the week as couples dabble in getting naughty. But the very notion that the real world of this peculiar sexual fetish could be accurately presented in a none-threatening, Harlequin romance-like manner is negated by the fact that the film is rated R and has been released by a major studio. True, there was a brief period of time when major movie studios did push the envelope in terms of depicting raw sexual freedoms. Bertolucci's "Last Tango in Paris" was made over forty years ago but would be considered un-releasable by the Hollywood suits who run the industry today. Even United Artists, »

Louis Jourdan, Star of ‘Octopussy,’ ‘Gigi,’ Dies at 93

15 February 2015 12:30 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Louis Jourdan, who crafted a Hollywood acting career in the footsteps of fellow dapper Frenchmen Maurice Chevalier and Charles Boyer and is best remembered for the musical “Gigi” and as the villain in James Bond pic “Octopussy,” has died at 93. According to his friend and biographer Olivier Minne, he died Saturday at his home in Beverly Hills.

Jourdan offered a certain effortless charm that worked equally well in light heroic roles and more sinister ones.

“He was the last French figure of the Hollywood golden age. And he worked with so many of the greatest actors and directors,” said Minne, who is working on a documentary and a book about Jourdan.

In Vincente Minnelli’s 1958 musical confection “Gigi,” Jourdan starred with Leslie Caron and Chevalier in an effort from the “My Fair Lady” team of Lerner & Loewe, turning the Collette tale into a Frenchified version of “Pygmalion.” The New York Times said, »

Kingsman: The Secret Service Is a Violent Fantasy of Weaponized Englishness

13 February 2015 6:30 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The kind of action extravaganza only a truly fallen civilization can produce, Kingsman: The Secret Service will both entertain you and send you running to the shower. Adapted (loosely) from Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons's gleefully brutal 2012 comic book The Secret Service with in-your-face visual bravado by Matthew Vaughn (who also turned Millar's Kick-Ass into a similarly deranged and beautiful killfest), this tale of a young tough getting introduced into a clandestine espionage network takes a familiar setup and upends it with comically stylized brutality. The film knows its story is an obvious one. "Have you seen Trading Places, Nikita, Pretty Woman?" Colin Firth's Harry Hart (code name: Galahad) asks our hero Eggsy (Taron Egerton), a council estate kid with a chip on his shoulder. Eggsy hasn't heard of those films, but he has heard of My Fair Lady, one of Kingsman's less intuitive reference points. Due to »

'Kingsman' Star Taron Egerton on Cyclops, 'Star Wars,' and A-List Mentors (Exclusive)

13 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In this weekend's deliriously entertaining spy movie send-up/celebration "Kingsman: The Secret Service," Colin Firth plays a seasoned veteran working for a private agency who goes out of his way to recruit Eggsy, the son of a former colleague who is more rough-around-the-edges street tough than gentleman spy. Part of the fun of the movie is watching the way that Eggsy transforms, turning into a refined young man like, to use a reference point of the film, "My Fair Lady" (except with, you know, explicit violence) and in turn watching the young actor, Taron Egerton, bloom into a full-fledged movie star.

Egerton is absolutely amazing in the movie, and the fact that he's a relative unknown actually adds suspense to the proceedings, since you're not entirely sure if he'll make it through the training process and actually become a secret agent. And Hollywood seems to agree: even before "Kingsman: The Secret Service" had been released, »

Theater Review: Brown Paper Box Co. Stages Pointed ‘Spike Heels’

29 January 2015 12:40 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – If you can remember the 1990s outside of childhood, you are in the glow of middle age, so congratulations. The Brown Paper Box Co. theater ensemble takes us back to those thrilling days of yesteryear with “Spike Heels,” a relationship comedy centering on the co-mingling antics of two couples, with a slight nod toward George Bernard Shaw and the play “Pygmalion” (or its musical counterpart, “My Fair Lady”).

Play Rating: 3.5/5.0

The script of the play is a bit slight and histrionic, but the performances rescue those tendencies, especially the whirling dervish in the center of the action. The character of Georgie is an indecisive-yet-strong character, and is portrayed with exceptional presence and depth by the rising Chicago theater star Jillian Weingart. Flitting from man-to-man, and consequence-to-consequence, Weingart as Georgie becomes the glue which holds the flimsy scenario together.
