James Corden and Jason Schwartzman Produce Aspiring Screenwriter’s Film in Funny ‘Starbucks Theater’

1 hour ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

On Tuesday night’s episode of “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” the host decided to make an aspiring screenwriter’s dream come true. In a sketch called “Starbucks Theater,” Corden headed to a local Starbucks to find the next best Hollywood script, produce it and film it on location.

“Our show is filmed in Los Angeles and in Los Angeles, every single coffee shop is full of aspiring writers on their laptops trying to to churn out the next great Hollywood screenplay,” he began. “But we thought, why wait for Hollywood when we can find and produce one of these scripts inside a local Starbucks.”

Corden then heads to the coffee shop, interviews writers and asks them what their screenplay is about. His selections include a “Terms of Endearment” meets “Mars Attack” project, another called “The Circumcisionist,” and his final selection, a western that takes place in Sicily in 1860 by writer Dante. »

Lee Daniels on His Audacious Approach to Fox’s ‘Star’: ‘This Is Singularly My Vision’

30 November 2016 9:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Lee Daniels wants to launch another “Star” into TV’s stratosphere.

Having created the Fox juggernaut “Empire” (with Danny Strong), Daniels hopes lightning will strike again with “Star,” a 13-episode musical drama about a girl-group struggling to succeed. He has dubbed it the anti-“Empire”: “If ‘Dynasty’ was my go-to when Danny and I were making ‘Empire,’” he says, “‘Good Times,’ ‘Maude,’ and Archie Bunker were my go-to when I was making this.”

“Star” is gritty, not glitzy. In place of Taraji P. Henson’s bombastic Cookie, the new show finds Queen Latifah as Carlotta,  mother hen to three young singers dreaming of fame and fortune.

This time, Daniels is going solo. Unlike “Empire,” which was shepherded with Strong, Brian Grazer, and showrunner Ilene Chaiken, this project is his alone. “This is singularly my vision, so if it fails, I’m failing,” he says. “I’m rolling the dice like I have in my entire career »

James L. Brooks Talks ‘The Edge of Seventeen,’ How to Best Serve a Movie, and Driving Jack Nicholson Crazy

21 November 2016 1:39 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Writer, director, and producer James L. Brooks has had the pleasure of producing some attention-grabbing debut films, including Say Anything and Bottle Rocket. The latest project Brooks felt compelled to support, The Edge of Seventeen, is the directorial debut of Kelly Fremon Craig, whose first produced script was the 2009 feature Post Grad.

Craig’s film is a refreshingly honest comedy. Its high-school kids actually look, talk, and act like high-school kids. Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld), her favorite teacher (Woody Harrelson), and her family and friends aren’t archetypes. Like some of James L. Brooks’ best characters, they’re immediately recognizable.

The Academy Award-winning writer-director behind Terms of Endearment, Broadcast News, and As Good as It Gets, recently discussed Craig’s film with us, his approach to producing, and how to best serve a movie.

The Film Stage: The second draft of the script was what really resonated with you, correct?

The Lrm Interview: Producer James L. Brooks on Making The Edge of Seventeen

18 November 2016 9:23 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Opening today is Kelly Fremon Craig’s directorial debut The Edge of Seventeen, and it is an impressive debut that works as a coming-of-age high school comedy in a way few others have

There’s a reason why it’s being compared to everything from Juno to Clueless to Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and much of that has to do with the central character, 17-year-old Nadine, as played by Hailee Steinfeld. She’s a bit of an outcast, sure, but the words that come out of her mouth, as written by Craig, makes her an immediately compelling character, as we see her face all sorts of adversity from the death of her father to other more mundane teenage angst with such a wry sense of humor.

Craig had a great mentor-of-sorts in James L. Brooks, who signed on as a producer fairly early on in order to get the movie made. »

Win Passes To The Advance Screening Of The Edge Of Seventeen In St. Louis

13 November 2016 1:56 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Remember being a teenager?! Today we can only smile about the emotional journey we went through. Teen movies are a fun escape to those good old days and after ‘Clueless’ and ‘Mean Girls’,

The Edge Of Seventeen could be the teen movie we’ve been waiting for”, says Vanity Fair. The coming-of-age dramedy stars Hailee Steinfeld as a high schooler who has to cope when her best friend falls for her brother.

Everyone knows that growing up is hard, and life is no easier for high school junior Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld), who is already at peak awkwardness when her all-star older brother Darian (Blake Jenner) starts dating her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson).

All at once, Nadine feels more alone than ever, until the unexpected friendship of a thoughtful boy (Hayden Szeto) gives her a glimmer of hope that things just might not be so terrible after all.

Film Review: Almost Christmas

9 November 2016 11:08 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It’s almost Christmas so, fittingly, family holiday films trim our multiplexes and fill our stockings.  First out of the gate this year is the creatively titled dramedy Almost Christmas, a well-intentioned but at times lackluster foray into five days in the life of a particularly effusive family.

Danny Glover’s Wayne Meyers is the patriarch at the center of the story, and he is surrounded by four children and some of their spouses, and the array of rivalries, dreams, and regrets that they bring to the dinner table. The family losses the mother figure at the open, and she casts a pall across them—in ways good and sad—throughout the movie and the Holiday season.

There is tenderness in the premise, which carries through symbolically as the family has misplaced the absent mother’s cooking recipes and is figuratively and literally lost without them. Along the journey, which »

Will ‘Fences’ Land Denzel Washington His Third Acting Oscar?

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

The elite circle of thespians who have earned three Oscars for their craft is quite small — but it could potentially expand come February 2017. Now that critics have finally gotten to see Fences, Denzel Washington has shot to the top of the list for the upcoming Academy Awards.

Throughout history there have only been three men to garner three Oscars with some combination of wins in the best actor and best supporting actor categories. And, at this point in the Oscar race, our very own Scott Feinberg calls the 61-year-old a frontrunner for best actor — putting him in a history-making position as he’d only be the fourth person to accomplish this feat.

The first person to win three statues for acting was Walter Brennan who managed to win three of the first five times the best supporting actor category was in existence. »

Mipcom: “Television is where it’s at,” says Kiefer Sutherland

Canadian actor talks Designated Survivor, rise of TV and how he nearly turned down 24

Television is the “most exciting medium” for actors in an era when Us studios have cut the number of films they make to focus on fewer big budget franchises, actor Kiefer Sutherland told delegates in Mipcom keynote on Monday.

Sutherland, who spent 20 years on the big screen in films such as Stand By Me and cult classic The Lost Boys in the 1980s to Flatliners and A Few Good Men in the 1990s, segued over to television in 2001 in the role of Jack Bauer in 24.

When asked why so many cinema actors were migrating to TV, he replied television was simply the “most exciting medium” in terms of the stories it was telling.

“When I started working, there were five studios and all five studios were making 50 to 60 movies a year. Now there are barely three studios and they’re making 15 movies a year »

Mipcom: Kiefer Sutherland on the Lessons of ’24′

17 October 2016 10:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cannes, France — The ghost of Jack Bauer haunted the Palais des Festivals’ Grand Auditorium in Cannes on Monday evening as Kiefer Sutherland talked in a masterclass Q & A about his new fall series, “Designated Survivor.”

“24” was a constant reference for Sutherland and for the audience, which created him with whoops of applause. But the crowd fell silent when Sutherland reflected on the upcoming U.S. presidential election.

“This has been the most bizarre and unfortunate political election cycle that I have ever witnessed in my lifetime, and I still remember Watergate. It is so negative, so polarizing and polarized,” Sutherland said.

In contrast, though it is make-believe, “Designated Survivor” has a point of view “from left, center and right,” Sutherland said, “discussed factually, correctly, calmly, and intelligently” – one of the reasons he agreed to do the show.

’20th Century Women’ Cements Annette Bening as Best Actress Frontrunner

10 October 2016 10:06 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As soon as Mike Mills’ “20th Century Women” screened at the New York Film Festival, Annette Bening’s performance became the one to beat in the most competitive Best Actress Oscar race in years.

While it’s never a struggle to identify five strong male performances that should vie for Best Actor, in some years, it can seem challenging to do the same for women: Too often, the best roles go to men. In 2016, that’s not the case. Emily Blunt’s movie star turn keeps audiences interested in mainstream thriller smash “The Girl on a Train,” while Meryl Streep clearly delights in using her chops as a musician in “Florence Foster Jenkins.”

But Bening will be hard to overtake. In writer-director Mills’ follow-up to “Beginners” (which yielded a 2010 Supporting Actor Oscar for Christopher Plummer), Bening gets a good shot at landing a win after four nominations (a larger-than-life actress in “Being Julia, »

Hailee Steinfeld is Miserable in New Red Band Trailer for ‘The Edge of Seventeen’

5 October 2016 12:56 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

When it comes to most closing night films at festivals, it’s usually a case of scheduling a left-over after most critics have cleared out and remaining audiences can easily lap up before heading back home after many days of non-stop movies. Consider our surprise then when the Hailee Steinfeld-led, James L. Brooks-produced comedy The Edge of Seventeen was one of the most well-received films of all of Tiff. Ahead of a release just in time for Thanksgiving, a new red band trailer has now landed.

We said in our review, “Festival films about teenage angst are a dime a dozen, or maybe a nickel at this point. The genre is as constrained by its expected tropes as horror or superhero films in today’s age, and as in those cases, it takes a guile filmmaker to either make them work or do something new. The Edge of Seventeen does both, »

The Accountant Images Oddly More Revealing Than Trailer

29 September 2016 5:52 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The Accountant is one of the most anticipated upcoming movies, but it isn’t revealing a lot of details, even in the trailer. The film has finally released a large set of images, and while it isn’t really the norm, you can get quite a bit more detail from them, including a look at a lot more characters and the situations Affleck’s character finds himself in.

We’ve got the basic idea that Christian (Ben Affleck) is a math genius who has some criminal clients and that he takes on a legitimate client to help an accountant (Anna Kendrick) who has found something funny in the books of a legitimate company. We also know that things go wildly wrong because Christian starts shooting people and goes a little “Bond.”

But, now we get some insight into how the story maneuvers, and the other characters. For example, Christian in »
