Martin Scorsese on Reuniting With De Niro for ‘Irishman,’ the Sinatra Biopic That Got Away

23 February 2017 4:17 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London – “The joy of creating a film has to be in making something, even in the worst circumstances. It’s about the passion,” Martin Scorsese told a packed audience at a special event celebrating the director’s career at London’s BFI Southbank on Wednesday night. “To retain that passion is the key.”

Scorsese spoke about his passion, his work with film preservation and how the industry has changed during his long career. The Oscar-winning director also spoke about his upcoming project “The Irishman,” though he avoided mention of the rumors currently swirling around financing and rights to the film, including the possibility that Netflix could take worldwide rights in an eyebrow-raising deal.

The long-gestating “Irishman” is set to reunite Scorsese with Robert De Niro for a ninth time and would mark his first collaboration with Al Pacino. “Al and I have been trying to get to do a »

The Oscar nominee, 45, shared a photo on the field prior to the game with his wife, Rhea Durham, and his two sons, Brendan and Michael.

The Furniture: Celebrating the Tackiness of "The Oscar"

23 January 2017 8:16 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

"The Furniture" is our weekly series on Production Design. Here's Daniel Walber...

Tomorrow is twice blessed. You’re probably already excited for the first reason, the Oscar nominations announcement. It’s also the centennial of Ernest Borgnine, an actor I have never particularly liked. But this coincidence makes today a perfect opportunity to talk about one of the worst movies ever produced by a Hollywood studio: 1966’s The Oscar.

The film begins and ends at the Academy Awards, where fictional Frankie Fane (Stephen Boyd) is as Best Actor nominee for Breakthrough, perhaps the most on-the-nose fictional title of all time.

Entertainment Feature: Top 20 Celebrity Portraits of 2016, By Photographer Joe Arce

13 January 2017 9:16 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The year 2016 was a dangerous one to be a famous person. In the past twelve months, one dozen of my former photo subjects passed away, celebrities who at one time or another famously posed for my lens. However, on a positive note, at least photos are forever. Or to quote the immortal words of Pee Wee Herman – “Why don’t you take a picture, it will last longer!”

The ranking of the portraits are based on a combination of the star power wattage of the subjects, the artistic results and the difficulty of landing the quarry…for those budding smart-phone-celebrity-stalkers who may wish to play along at home. So without further adieu, I present my top 20 celebrity portraits of 2016.
