Garry Marshall On ‘The Odd Couple’ & ‘Pretty Woman’ The Broadway Musical – Conversations With Jeremy Gerard

8 December 2014 10:14 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Updates with Runaway Bride and Jack Klugman fixes.

Exclusive: “ ‘Eff You!’ ” I answered. Garry Marshall already knew when he asked me, but he wanted to see whether I knew what I was talking about. We were discussing Neil Simon, who I said had written the all-time funniest line ever. “Which line?” Marshall asked. “F.U.,” I answered.

“I can’t take it anymore, Felix, I’m cracking up. Everything you do irritates me. And when you’re not here, the things I know you’re gonna do when you come in irritate me. You leave me little notes on my pillow. Told you 158 times I can’t stand little notes on my pillow. “We’re all out of cornflakes. F.U.” Took me three hours to figure out F.U. was Felix Ungar!”

Marshall concurs and reminds me that the line is from the Broadway script of The Odd Couple »

Hocus Pocus 2? Here's What Bette Midler Has To Say

11 November 2014 6:46 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Bette Midler has revealed that she would jump at the opportunity to star in a sequel to the 1993 Disney hit Hocus Pocus. However, she has declared that it is now up to the millions of fans of the film to make it happen. The legendary singer and actress made her comments during a Reddit Ama, which had been orchestrated to help promote her upcoming new album. During her chat with her legion of fans, the topic of Hocus Pocus 2 was raised on numerous occasions. The top comment on the thread actually sees user CooperCam ask Bette Midler, "Hi, Bette. Can you just do a Hocus Pocus II so my girlfriend can make me stop watching the original every Halloween?" This then provoked the Beaches actress to respond: "Chuckles. You have to go to send in your cards to the Walt Disney company. The ball.s in their court." After her »

Bette Midler's Rules for a Successful Hollywood Marriage

2 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Six weeks after they met, Bette Midler and Martin Von Haselberg tied the knot - at a 2 a.m., $45 ceremony in Las Vegas. But don't laugh: This Dec. 16 will mark the couple's 30th wedding anniversary - practically a record-breaker by Hollywood standards. "It's rare," Midler, 68, tells People. "I think the secret is giving each other a lot of lead and a lot of room and not being in each other's faces all the time," the singer, actress and comedian - whose first album in eight years, It's the Girls, debuts Nov. 4 - says in the "What I Know Now" section »

What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

1 October 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

Bgt Andrew Derbyshire revisits Pop Idol: 'Simon's face still moved then'

28 April 2014 7:49 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Britain's Got Talent contestant Andrew Derbyshire sent us back to 2001 this weekend when he revealed during his audition that he had previously competed on Pop Idol, the granddaddy of TV talent shows.

After watching him wow the judges, Digital Spy took Andrew on a trip down memory lane, presenting him with cringeworthy images of himself, Simon Cowell and Ant & Dec from the Pop Idol days as we discussed how things have changed over the last 13 years...

Andrew's reaction to... himself on Pop Idol

Rachel Weisz And Director Catherine Hardwicke Join Miss You Already

22 April 2014 2:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Rachel Weisz and Toni Collette are two fine actors who should have made a deeper impression in Hollywood by now. Both bring their A-game to each film they are in, but they do not always pick the right projects. Occasionally though, we see a masterful performance (Weisz in The Deep Blue Sea, Collette on Showtime’s The United States of Tara) that reminds us of their talents. Now, both actresses are attached to Miss You Already, a drama following two best friends going through an emotional crisis.

Collette has been linked to this project since 2012, when Jennifer Aniston was signed on. Weisz, however, is only now coming on board to take Aniston’s role, as one of the forty-something friends who gets diagnosed with breast cancer, while Collette is a woman who becomes pregnant for the first time and starts a family. Both are lifelong friends torn apart by the changing world around them. »

Bette Midler Reissues Her 1980 Memoir A View from a Broad

26 March 2014 4:15 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

She wowed at The Oscars and now Bette Midler, 68, is reminding fans of her wit with the reissue of her 1980 memoir, A View From A Broad. "I read it again about six months ago and it's really charming to revisit [that time]," she tells People. "In a funny way, it's the diary that I would have written if I had lived in wonderland." Midler's memoir reads like a scrap book chock-full of fun and raw anecdotes from her life on the road during her first world tour. It was eight years before she released the Blockbuster Beaches, and she was ready to make her mark. »

James Gandolfini, Paul Walker and Philip Seymour Hoffman were among the late stars who were honoured at last night's Oscars 2014 ceremony (March 2).

The Academy paid tribute to Hollywood actors, writers, directors, producers, crew members and others associated with cinema who have passed away over the last 12 months.

Oscars: Bette Midler Sings ‘Wind Beneath My Wings’ (Video)

2 March 2014 10:13 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Bette Midler graced the stage to sing “Wind Beneath My Wings” as part of the Academy’s annual “In Memoriam” honoring those who Hollywood has lost this past year. Also read: Oscars: The Complete Winners List Although Midler has been nominated for two Academy Awards, the performance marked her first at the Oscars. While the song first surfaced in 1982, it was Midler’s version for the 1998 film “Beaches” that topped the charts and boosted the tune into national consciousness.

Oscars 2014: Bette Midler lends a mighty 'In Memoriam' assist

2 March 2014 8:55 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The annual "In Memoriam" segment honoring recently deceased talents had extra emotional punch at Sunday's 86th Academy Awards, for several reasons.

Introduced by Glenn Close, the tribute was bound to have impact through its spotlighting of unexpected deaths during the past year, such as those of "Capote" Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman and "The Fast and the Furious" franchise star Paul Walker.

Presented without the audience applause that sometimes accompanies mentions of particularly beloved talents, the segment was set to John Barry's memorable theme music from "Somewhere in Time." That was an especially meaningful choice, since veteran fantasy writer Richard Matheson -- who died last June, and was included in the salute -- adapted that film's screenplay from his novel "Bid Time Return."

Stylized photos of the late actors, directors, writers, musicians and other craftspeople often were accompanied by clips of their work, as with Peter O'Toole ("Lawrence of Arabia »

Nyquil Spokeswoman Katherine Heigl’s Latest Film is on Indiegogo

18 February 2014 6:53 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Katherine Heigl, formerly of Grey’s Anatomy, formerly of Judd Apatow and Seth Rogen‘s good graces, formerly of a slew of successful romantic comedies and currently of a Nyquil commercial and some truly unfortunate casting choices, has a new film on the way. Called Jenny’s Wedding, Heigl stars as a lesbian who has been hiding her sexuality from her family for years, until she decides to take the next step in her relationship with her longtime girlfriend, Kitty, played by Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls, Mad Men). The news of Jenny’s impending nuptials is enough to tear her family apart, especially since they’re small-town conservatives who have believed up until this point that their daughter’s girlfriend is her roommate. Sounds like a cute little wedding flick that plays right into Heigl’s repertoire. Here’s the kicker. The film is up on Indiegogo to the tune of raising $150,000 to cover post-production costs.

Katherine Heigl Film Producer Seeks Indiegogo Funding to Complete Project

12 February 2014 5:42 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“Jenny’s Wedding,” a film starring Katherine Heigl and Tom Wilkinson, has turned to Indiegogo to raise money for post-production costs. “Beaches” filmmaker Mary Agnes Donoghue finished production on the film last month, but she and her cohorts now want $150,000 for music, titles, color and sound. The movie does not have a domestic distributor yet, so one presumes it will use some of that money for film festivals as well. “Many wonderful indie movies disappear because the quality of work in post-production fails them,” the campaign avers. “Don’t fail us.” Also read: Indiegogo Founders on Their $40 Million Raise: ‘We Don’t Really. »

Michelle Manning Explains Why She's the Latest Hollywood Producer to Indiegogo

12 February 2014 2:38 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

More Hollywood producers are starting to come around to the idea that crowd funding sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo can help them get their independent projects made. On Wednesday, writer-director Mary Agnes Donoghue ("Beaches"), producers Michelle Manning and Gail Levin are launching a new campaign on Indiegogo to raise post-production finishing funds for indie romantic comedy "Jenny's Wedding," starring Katherine Heigl, Grace Gummer and Alexis Bledel. Here's the link.  The movie, which wrapped production in Cleveland, Ohio last November, is about what happens when Jenny (Heigl), the daughter of a close-knit family, finally decides to marry. Her old-fashioned parents (Tom Wilkinson and Linda Emond) want her to settle down, but react badly when she announces that she is going to marry a woman. While the producers successfully financed the film via Merced Media Partners and PalmStar »

Garry Marshall Tapped for WGA’s Paddy Chayefksy Award

8 January 2014 10:34 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Garry Marshall — the man behind “Happy Days,” “Laverne & Shirley” and “Mork & Mindy” — will receive the Writers Guild of America West’s 2014 Paddy Chayefsky Laurel Award for Television Writing Achievement.

The honor will be presented at the Writers Guild Awards’ West Coast ceremony on Feb. 1 at the Jw Marriott Los Angeles.

Garry Marshall’s filmography – from ‘The Joey Bishop Show’ to ‘Happy Days’ – is a virtual history of American television comedy,” said WGA West president Christopher Keyser. “Both of-their-time and timeless, his shows are a gentle, generous, comic mirror held up to late mid-century America. And no one is a finer or funnier chronicler of friendship – male or female (or alien) – than Garry Marshall.”

Marshall created or co-created and executive produced “Happy Days” (1974-84), “Laverne & Shirley” (1976-83), “Joanie Loves Chachi,” “Mork & Mindy,” “Angie,” “Makin’ It,” “The Brian Keith Show,”  and “Hey, Landlord!”

He also developed “The New Odd Couple.” His other »
