It seems that Garry Marshall is ready to continue what's probably best described at this point as his "Holiday Trilogy." It began in 2010 with the star-studded ensemble comedy Valentine's Day; continued with 2011's star-studded ensemble comedy New Year's Eve; and now we have word about Mother's Day - a brand new star-studded ensemble comedy that has already begun putting pieces of its cast together. So who are the folks that will be populating this brand new project? Deadline has released the info about the project, and you can find our rundown on the cast so far below: First up we have Julia Roberts, who is not only a veteran star of Garry Marshall movies, but even had an earlier role in the Holiday Trilogy. The actress and director previously found huge success together working on both 1990's Pretty Woman, and 1999's Runaway Bride (both co-starring Richard Gere), and they most »
First there was Valentine's Day. Then there was New Year's Eve. Now, there's Mother's Day. Gary Marshall is developing a star-studded feature film focused on the intertwined lives of mothers as the holiday approaches, with Julia Roberts attached to star. The star's casting, which was first reported by Deadline Tuesday, will reteam her with the director for the fourth time after they worked together on 1990's Pretty Woman, 1999's Runaway Bride and 2010's ensemble rom-com Valentine's Day. The Academy Award winner won't be the only marquee name to appear in Marshall's latest endeavor, of course. Horrible Bosses 2 actress Jennifer Aniston is also in negotiations, a source »
Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and Jason Sudeikis are in talks to star in 'Mother's Day'. The string of stars have all entered negotiations for Garry Marshall's latest ensemble holiday movie, which is being written by Anya Kochoff-Romano and Lily Hollander, Deadline reports. As with previous movies 'New Year's Eve' and 'Valentine's Day', the film will tell a series of intertwining stories, this time about the lives of several mothers, leading up to the titular holiday. Wayne Rice, Gulfstream Pictures' Mike Karz, and Kevin Frakes of PalmStar Media will produce the film, with Ankur Rungsta of PalmStar serving as executive producer. The film is scheduled to begin production. If she does sign on, the picture will mark a re-team between Julia and the director, who helmed her 1990 hit 'Pretty Woman', the movie which launched her as the highest-paid actress of the time. »
The script, written by Anya Kochoff-Romano (“Monster-In-Law”) and Lily Hollander, centers on several intersecting stories on a single day — in the style of Marshall’s “Valentine’s Day” and “New Year’s Eve.”
CAA is representing the film’s domestic distribution rights. The agency reps all four stars.
Roberts is also represented by Engelman and Co. Marshall is represented by ICM Partners and RPMedia’s Rick Nicita at RPMedia. Aniston and Sudeikis are also represented by Brillstein Entertainment Partners. Hudson is also represented by Untitled and Jackoway Tyerman.

Now officially a sort of anthology franchise, Garry Marshall's ensemble holiday movies have just reached episode three. Mother's Day will be the follow-up to Valentine's Day and New Year's Eve, with Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and Jason Sudeikis all in negotiations to head up what will undoubtedly be another large cast.Not to be confused with the Mother's Day in which Rebecca De Mornay killed a number of people, this one will, unsurprisingly, tell the intertwining stories of several mothers as the day approaches and they wait for their bunch of daffs. Or whatever. Marshall aside, the film has slightly different DNA to its predecessors. Anya Kochoff-Romano (Monster In Law) and Lily Hollander replace Katherine Fugate as the writers, and while the previous two films came out of New Line, that's not a done deal this time. The "package" is "going out to buyers" shortly.It will, »
Richard Gere has enjoyed — and is still enjoying — the sort of hugely successful, long, eclectic career that nearly every actor would kill for. Gere started gathering serious attention in Terrence Malick’s “Days of Heaven” in 1978, but it was his role as the titular “American Gigolo” in Paul Schrader’s now-iconic 1980 film that vaulted him to Hollywood stardom. He went on to sweep Debra Winger off her feet in “An Officer and a Gentleman,” and saved Julia Roberts from a life of prostitution in “Pretty Woman” (reteaming later with Roberts on “Runaway Bride”). Gere tackled song and dance with “The Cotton Club” and “Chicago,” danced around the law as a corrupt cop in “Internal Affairs” and donned armor as Lancelot in “First Knight.” More recently, he’s walked on the seamier side of Wall Street (“Arbitrage”) and stayed over at “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.”

The couple have reportedly been dating for over a year. The couple stepped out together for the first time on the red carpet at the 61st Annual Taormina Film Festival in Sicily last week and were also spotted on a yacht off the coast of Acitrezza on Monday where they were pictured kissing and relaxing in the sun. Speaking of the new relationship, a friend of Alejandra told Spain's ABC: ''They've been together for about a year but have been very private about it.

Richard Gere: “Outstanding contribution to world cinema” award in Czech Republic Photo: Richard Mowe
Actor Richard Gere, 65, is to receive a Crystal Globe for his “outstanding contribution to world cinema” at next month’s Karlovy Vary Film Festival, celebrating its 50th anniversary.
Gere stars in the event’s opening film by Oren Moverman, Time Out Of Mind, in which he plays a homeless person in contemporary New York whose long estranged daughter (Jena Malone from Hunger Games) offers him his only strand of hope - if they can be reconciled. Both will be on the red carpet for the gala opening on 3 July.
The actor's reputation rests on stand-out performances in American Gigolo by Paul Schrader, An Officer And A Gentleman (Taylor Hackford), Cotton Club (Francis Ford Coppola), Internal Affairs (Mike Figgis) and opposite Julia Roberts in his mega-hit Pretty Woman (Garry Marshall).

Headey opted out of going naked for the harrowing six-minute sequence "for several reasons", one of which was so she could fully focus on the emotions in her performance.
The actress also wasn't involved in the casting process for her double, adding: "I was like, 'Listen guys, she happens to have a beautiful body, but I don't do casting'. If somebody is brave enough to do this, I applaud it."
We've found 11 other actors and actresses who've spoken candidly about choosing a body double instead of baring their naked bits on the big screen.
And you may find some film scenes quite surprising (it wasn't really Kevin Costner frolicking naked in a waterfall!).

The life of a Hollywood screenwriter might sound like a glamorous one, but it's not all premieres and champagne.
As one of the smaller cogs in an often complex machine, the writer can often find his or her work changed almost beyond recognition by other hands. Such is the case with the following movies, which were all changed quite drastically in one way or another between their original draft and their final cut.
Some scripts were pressed into service as sequels. Some began in one genre and wound up in another. Rather than put together an exhaustive list, we've chosen a few examples of the script changes that intrigued or bemused us most.

The first and most important thing that happened as a result of the staging of "Sticks and Stones" at the Met Theater as part of the Act One Festival was that Scott Swan and I got our first agent. Barbara Baruch worked for Ambrosio/Mortimer, a smaller boutique agency at the time, and from the moment we met her, she seemed like what I imagined an agent to be. She was nurturing, she was a cheerleader, she was a ballbuster, and she was always, always, always in our corner. Our time with her was unfortunately too short, and by the time the agency imploded in accusations of embezzlement, we were already repped by Gersh out of New York. Barbara was first, though, and she was the first one to start pushing people to come see our show and to read our work. The strangest thing about those early days is »

Hadley Freeman's latest book has harnessed her love of 80s movies, and gone into detail about just why they work so well. Entitled Life Moves Pretty Fast, you won't be surprised to hear that Ferris Bueller's Day Off features in there. But then so does Dirty Dancing, Top Gun, Ghostbusters, Back To The Future and Eddie Murphy.
So what makes 80s movies so special? That seemed a logical place to start, as we caught up with Hadley for a chat...
Can I start by throwing a paraphrased movie quote at you? That line in The Truman Show about accepting the reality with which we're presented? At what point did you come to accept and realise that the movies of the 80s were so special to you? As you grew up with them, »
