The 65th Annual Outer Critics Circle Nominees

20 hours ago | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Outer Critics Circle, the organization of writers and publications covering NYC theater outside NYC, honored the finest talent on and off Broadway with the announcement of this year’s nominees. Led by Broadway stars Raúl Esparza and Katie Finneran, the announcement ceremony took place at Manhattan’s Friars Club. Winners in all 24 categories will be announced on May 11, and the 65th annual Gala Awards Dinner will be held at Sardi’s Restaurant on May 21. New musical “Something Rotten!” led the pack with 12 nominations, followed by “On the Twentieth Century,” “An American in Paris,” and “Wolf Hall.” Because “Disgraced,” “Fun Home,” and “Hand to God” received nominations in previous seasons, those productions were not under consideration this year. Acting nominees include Bradley Cooper, Patricia Clarkson, and Alessandro Nivola for “The Elephant Man,” Elisabeth Moss and Bryce Pinkham for “The Heidi Chronicles,” Ben Miles for “Wolf Hall,” Kelli O’Hara and Ruthie »

The Conversation: Drew Morton and Landon Palmer Discuss ‘The Straight Story’

11 April 2015 1:54 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Conversation is a feature at Sound on Sight bringing together Drew Morton and Landon Palmer in a passionate debate about cinema new and old. For their fourth piece, they will discuss David Lynch’s film The Straight Story (1999).

Drew’s Take

I am in the midst of my 1999 class and I assigned two films I had yet to see from the acclaimed year – the year that Entertainment Weekly claimed to “change movies” – Kimberly Pierce’s Boys Don’t Cry and David Lynch’s The Straight Story. I like doing this as a Professor, because it varies the class and keeps me from getting too settled into a comfort zone. It challenges me to be more spontaneous and in the moment, a zone I typically find stimulating and energizing. Needless to say, the sixteen year old legacy of Lynch’s The Straight Story created a certain predisposition. Having seen all of Lynch’s other films, »

In ‘Skylight’, Bill Nighy & Carey Mulligan Spark And Smolder In David Hare Revival

2 April 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Bill Nighy made his Broadway debut almost a decade ago in David Hare’s The Vertical Hour. He returns in Skylight, an earlier but better Hare play from 1996, and it’s cause for celebration. In a season marked by alpha stars in beta plays (Bradley Cooper in The Elephant Man; Hugh Jackman in The River), Nighy and co-star Carey Mulligan have a brilliant vehicle worthy of their complementary talents. Piloted with exceptional sensitivity by Stephen Daldry and beautifully… »

Bradley Cooper set to make his directorial debut with A Star Is Born remake

25 March 2015 4:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper (American Sniper) is in talks with Warner Bros. to make his directorial debut with a remake of classic musical A Star Is Born.

In the works for a while now, the new version of the film was initially set to be directed by Cooper’s American Sniper director Clint Eastwood, but went on the back-burner after Eastwood chose to make Sniper and last year’s Jersey Boys instead. Word is that once Cooper has finished his run in The Elephant Man, which moves from Broadway to London’s West End very soon, he will start work on the film.

In addition, the studio are hoping that Cooper will take on the male lead in the film, which had Tom Cruise (Edge of Tomorrow), Leonardo DiCaprio (The Wolf of Wall Street), Will Smith (Focus) and Christian Bale (Knight of Cups) all rumoured for at different points, »

Bradley Cooper May Direct Beyonce in 'A Star Is Born'

24 March 2015 5:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Bradley Cooper is in talks to make his directorial debut with the long-planned A Star Is Born remake for Warner Bros. The film originally had Beyonc&#233 Knowles attached to star, with Clint Eastwood directing. Though Clint Eastwood is no longer involved with the project, the hope is that Beyonc&#233 Knowles will return, and Bradley Cooper will co-star alongside her.

Beyonc&#233 Knowles is wanted to take the lead as a young woman whose dreams of stardom are helped along by a former Hollywood icon (Bradley Cooper) whose better days are behind him. Bradley Cooper was originally interested in the role when Clint Eastwood was attached to the project. The actor is set to take a pass at the screenplay with writer Will Fetters, who penned the most recent draft. He will dive into the project whole heartedly once he wraps his Broadway role in The Elephant Man, which he is currently performing in London. »

Bradley Cooper in talks to star and direct ‘A Star is Born’ with Beyonce

24 March 2015 4:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Could the Queen B be teaming up with the current king of the box office? Deadline reported Tuesday that Bradley Cooper is in talks to make his directorial debut with a remake of the classic showbiz drama and romance A Star is Born, and that Beyonce will be approached to star alongside Cooper in the film.

Nothing is confirmed yet, but Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. hopes he can jump into the project, along with producing and taking a stab at the script by Will Fetters (The Lucky One, Remember Me) once he is finished starring in the Broadway production of The Elephant Man.

The bigger complication however may not be securing Cooper, but Beyonce. Clint Eastwood has long been attached to this project, but he recently revealed in an interview with THR’s Stephen Galloway that Beyonce is obviously very busy being a super-megastar, and that Warner Bros. »

Bradley Cooper in Talks to Direct and Star in 'A Star is Born' Remake

24 March 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Before Beyonce got pregnant she was going to star in a remake of A Star is Born for Clint Eastwood. When the project was delayed as a result of Beyonce's pregnancy, Eastwood went on to make Jersey Boys and American Sniper, but now the film is bubbling back to the surface, though Eastwood isn't the one Warner Bros. is looking at to direct, no, it's his American Sniper star Bradley Cooper. Deadline reports Warner Bros. is in negotiations with Cooper to make his directorial debut on the remake with hopes for him to also star in the film. After that, the goal is to hopefully re-approach Beyonce to take on the role of the starry-eyed girl dreaming of being a star only to have to scrape out a living as a waitress until she finds a helping hand from a alcoholic movie idol. The screenplay was written by Will Fetters »

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper Attend New York ‘Serena’ Premiere

22 March 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It would seem like a surprise that “Serena,” the long-troubled project starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, which debuted on VOD and iTunes on Feb. 26, would even have a New York premiere. But on Saturday night, both of the film’s stars gamely attended a screening at Landmark’s Sunshine Cinema, prior to its limited March 27 U.S. theatrical release from Magnolia Pictures.

The onscreen duo — who previously appeared together in “Silver Linings Playbook” and “American Hustle” — spoke to red-carpet journalists as a team. Lawrence said she got the script for “Serena” during the 2012 shoot for “Silver Linings” and convinced Cooper to take the male role in the 1920s North Carolina-set drama based on Ron Rash’s novel. “I forced him to be in the movie,” she teased. They also fielded questions about their dietary habits (“we’re both the biggest eaters in Hollywood,” Lawrence said), horseback riding (Lawrence said »

Bradley Cooper Only Shot for One Day on Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer Series

11 March 2015 5:46 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The 2001 cult comedy classic Wet Hot American Summer featured so many up-and-comers on the verge of their big breakouts — including Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, and Elizabeth Banks — that when Netflix announced the whole gang would reunite for an eight-episode Wet Hot series set to air this summer, many industry observers wondered when those in-demand actors would find the time to film their parts. Cooper, for one, is now a full-blown movie star who not only toplined 2014's biggest hit, American Sniper, but was busy acting in Broadway's recent revival of The Elephant Man while Wet Hot shot its new season. Could he really make it work?The answer is yes, although just barely. Vulture has learned that Cooper shot a single day on the Wet Hot series, since his Broadway commitments initially prohibited a trip to Los Angeles, where it was filmed. In fact, the Wet Hot team »

Stage Door: Bradley Cooper in 'The Elephant Man'

13 February 2015 3:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jose here for a special weekend edition of Stage Door, starring one of our Best Actor nominees...

The stage directions for Bernard Pomerance’s The Elephant Man strictly call for “no prosthetic makeup” to be worn by the actor playing the severely deformed character of Joseph Merrick. It's only during a scene in which surgeon Frederick Treves explains to the audience what his deformities consisted of, that we get to see the actor playing Merrick become “the Elephant Man”.

Seeing Bradley Cooper play the part of Merrick, it's tough to believe it's as same actor you've just seen in his Oscar nominated role as Chris Kyle in American Sniper. [More...]

Oscars: Campaigning Still Going Strong As Academy Has One Week Left To Make A Decision

9 February 2015 5:49 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

It’s getting down to the wire.

Academy online voting officially started Friday, though members who requested paper ballots have had them for a week now. Whichever way you are voting, they are due in by 5 Pm Pacific on Tuesday, February 17, but snail mailers should make sure ballots are posted by Saturday at the latest since Monday the 16th is Presidents Day, a postal holiday. Advertising for the big contenders still seems pretty fierce as now with BAFTA and all the major guilds having weighed in — with the exception of WGA, holding off until Valentine’s Day — the race for Best Picture appears as wide open as it has been all season. With Birdman taking key honors at SAG, DGA and PGA (it is ineligible at WGA) vs Boyhood’s critical love and wins at the Golden Globes and especially yesterday at BAFTA, these two could fight it out to a photo finish, »
