Costner Planning Cartoon Project

1 December 2010 5:36 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Movie star Kevin Costner is drawing up plans to launch his own animated TV series.

The Bodyguard actor has developed a cartoon with a group of pals and is currently trying to find a backer to finance the project.

Costner is adamant fans will love his idea as he has taken inspiration from the works of sci-fi legend Jules Verne, English literature icon Charles Dickens and Arabian folklore.

He tells Entertainment Weekly, "I've developed a cartoon with a group of guys that I hope will see the light of day. It's very literate. I think that's why it's having so much trouble.

"I'm trying to find the right financing to put it forward. It probably represents about 50 hours of content. It's swashbuckling, it's violent, it's acidic. It's really cool. It'd be as if you were on an island, and you found three books: One was Jules Verne, one was Charles Dickens, and one was maybe Arabian Nights.

"It's high adventure and it's not based on any source material. It would start off as a series, but it would quickly mould into a feature because of the way it could be cast." »

'Skating With the Stars': Kevin Costner sees 'No Way Out' for Sean Young

3 November 2010 3:35 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Kevin Costner is intrigued that one of his first leading ladies is about to go "Skating."

The actor shared a hugely memorable limo ride with Sean Young in the 1987 melodrama "No Way Out," so it comes as interesting news to him that she'll be among the contenders when ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" spinoff "Skating With the Stars" premieres Monday, Nov. 22.

"I didn't know she had that skill set," Costner tells Zap2it. "You'd better have it for something like that, because you can't even fake that. I've played baseball in movies ('Bull Durham,' 'Field of Dreams,' 'For Love of the Game'), but I'd never do a hockey movie. I could never pull that off."

Still known principally as the Oscar-winning filmmaker behind "Dances With Wolves" -- and the star of such other hits as "The Untouchables" and "The Bodyguard" -- Costner has turned musical lately. »

'Dancing With the Stars': Brandy restrains herself from bursting into song

5 October 2010 10:12 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

If your hopes were high for a surprise performance when you saw Brandy standing behind that microphone on "Dancing With the Stars," you're not the only one.

"Oh my god, I wanted that mic to be on so bad," Brandy told Zap2it when we caught up with her backstage after her week 3 performance.

The pop star's selection for story week involved a retelling of "The Bodyguard," with Brandy playing Whitney Houston. Since she needed to focus on the choreography -- and showcasing her musical talents would clearly give her a leg up on the competition -- it was never a question. Not that that stopped her from begging to sing all week during rehearsals.

"Are you crazy?" asks partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who started dismissing her requests the moment the prop mic came into the picture. "Think about your feet."

Still, Brandy sang throughout rehearsals, on the hope she might change his mind. »

Diane Keaton, Kevin Kline, Richard Jenkins, Elisabeth Moss in Darling Companion

24 September 2010 12:52 PM, PDT | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

And more casting news! The writer and director best known from titles like Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and The Bodyguard, Lawrence Kasdan is set to direct Darling Companion.

The upcoming indie drama has Diane Keaton, Kevin Kline, Richard Jenkins and Elisabeth Moss all on board to star in it!

Movie will follow “a woman (Keaton) who takes in a stray dog as a companion to fill the void left by her distracted husband (Kline), only to see him lose the mutt after a wedding at their vacation home in the Rockies. A search for the animal includes several guests and a mysterious young woman.”

So, at this moment there’s not some detailed information about Jenkins and Moss, and their possible roles, but it’s no hard to guess who “a mysterious young woman” could be (no, it’s not Jenkins!).

Lawrence co-wrote the screenplay with his wife, »

Kasdan Talks Return to Directing with Darling Companion, Wiest, Duplass, Shepard Join Keaton, Kline

24 September 2010 12:36 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

No director better represents the sorry state of the current moviemaking scene than Lawrence Kasdan. For most of his career, the studios supplied him with steady work as a screenwriter (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, The Bodyguard) and writer-director (The Big Chill, Body Heat, The Accidental Tourist, Grand Canyon). The writing has continued--he's still a well-paid fixer-for-hire--but Kasdan has had a tough time getting arrested as a director. He is now one of many senior players who are no longer in demand at the studios, which chase young whiz kids with VFX skills who can deliver them what they want without demanding final cut. And it takes a while for once top-tier directors to admit that with »

Lawrence Kasdan Back In Saddle With Kevin Kline

22 September 2010 8:01 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Whether he's scripting Indiana Jones or The Bodyguard or directing The Big Chill or Grand Canyon, Lawrence Kasdan's always got something interesting on his mind. Nice to see he'll be back behind the camera directing Darling Companion, an indie that stars Diane Keaton as a wife who loves her dog more than her husband, and Kevin Kline as the husband who loses his wife's beloved dog. Richard Jenkins and Elisabeth Moss also star. The film begins production later this month in Utah. »

It’s Time to Forgive Some Infamous Movie scenes

18 September 2010 9:31 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Scott Mendelson

hollywoodnews.com: As one of the two highest-of-high holy days in the Jewish religion, Yom Kippur basically involves asking forgiveness for the past transgressions against God over the previous year. But arguably as important is Erev Yom Kippur, which is the day before the high holy day, which involves asking the actual people you’ve transgressed against for atonement. In that spirit, let us take a few moments to finally let go of a few alleged transgressions in recent cinema history. Don’t do it for them, do it for yourself.

Alleged Sin: Beating out Martin Scorsese at the 1990 Academy Awards

Alex Proyas (Knowing, I Robot, The Crow) has signed on to direct "Paradise Lost," an adaptation of the epic 17th-century English poem by John Milton.

Stuart Hazeldine developed the primary draft of the screenplay that was originally written by Byron Willinger and Philip de Blasi. Lawrence Kasdan (Wyatt Earp, The Bodyguard) provided a polish as well as Ryan Condal, who delivered the most recent draft. »

Costner Helps Save Unwanted Dogs

4 August 2010 9:03 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Animal-loving actor Kevin Costner has thrown his support behind a charity operation which rescues unwanted dogs from death row.

The Bodyguard star has given his backing to the Orange Dog organisation which saves homeless pets from being euthanized in overcrowded animal shelters across the U.S. by flying them to Canada for re-homing.

The charity works with the help of a private jet firm which allows the organisation to fly dogs around when the planes are not in use, and Costner is urging the public to support the good cause.

He tells Access Hollywood, "When this plane is operating at its best, it's not just taking people around the world, it's hauling animals... (It's) essentially an exchange of animals that were going to be euthanized. Instead of having that happen, (the dogs are) now making their way to Canada, having a second chance at life.

"(The charity) spoke to my heart. The last dog that we saved... in two hours was going to be euthanized, and believe it or not, before we made it to Canada, the pilot adopted the dog.

"I think the first trip (they) took 50-plus dogs, the second trip I think (they) took 115 dogs all on this plane, so you can imagine this luxury, five-star piece of transportation just filled with animals that are going to get a second chance at life." »

Costner's Lawsuit Against Music Promoter Dropped

22 July 2010 12:16 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor-turned-singer Kevin Costner has dropped a multi-million dollar lawsuit against a music promoter he accused of reneging on a deal to book shows for his band.

The Bodyguard star fronts the Kevin Costner Band in between making movies and signed an agreement with bosses at Mahee Worldwide Ventures Inc. to secure five concerts a year for the group and keep their website updated.

But the deal turned sour and Costner sued the company in a Los Angeles court in 2007, alleging the promoters failed to honour the contract to support his music career.

However, the $8.5 million (£5.7 million) case has now been dismissed, according to court filings lodged last week (ends16Jul10). No further details were given in the legal documents.

The lawsuit had been delayed for years after Mahee's bosses filed for bankruptcy.

Costner now jams with rock band Modern West. »

The Wtf Friday Video of the Week: And I ... Will Always ... Scare You

16 July 2010 9:45 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

With "America's Got Talent" in full swing, we figured we'd showcase a little talent from around the world. Our kind of talent. You know, the kind that leaves you shrieking and wondering when this hell will end, if ever!

Below you'll find the most stirring "lip synced" version of Whitney Houston's hit song from The Bodyguard, "I Will Always Love You", but we promise you, this version is much scarier than if Houston herself tried singing it today. You will never look at this little ditty the same way again, and that's a good thing!

This chick should be hired to perform at the weddings of horror fans around the world. If only to see the "normal" people in attendance grimace. So without further ado ...

Oil Bosses Testing Costner's Gadget

20 May 2010 5:06 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Kevin Costner's dreams of saving the Louisiana coastline from a mass oil spillage have moved a step closer - Bp bosses have agreed to test out his water-oil separation device.

The Bodyguard star jetted into the region last week with his scientist brother Dan after an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico ruptured, sending a huge slick drifting towards the state's shores.

The brothers run Costner Industries Nevada Corporation (Cinc), and have previously promoted a filtration system, designed by Dan Costner, to recycle oil.

Now Bp Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles has agreed to test out six of the devices on the oil spill this week (beg17May10).

At a news conference last week (end16May10), Costner said, "Years before I got involved, oil spills were coming and I was wondering why we couldn't clean this up. This is why it was developed... I'm just really happy that the light of day has come to this." »

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back 30 years on - where are they now?

19 May 2010 9:15 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

To celebrate the 30th birthday of The Empire Strikes Back this coming Friday, Ryan finds out what happened next for those involved...

How about this for making some of us feel old? The Empire Strikes Back got its maiden cinema release on May 21st 1980. That, at the time of this article going live, is tomorrow. Tomorrow, one of the finest science fiction blockbusters of all time is going to be 30.

It's testament to the many strengths of the movie that it's still talked about so frequently three decades on, and many, of course, rate it as the finest Star Wars movie of the lot. But what happened to those who worked on it, in front of and behind the camera? We decided to celebrate the film's birthday by finding out...

Khandi Alexander is a chameleon. She invests each role with such presence, such verve and realism, that we easily believe her as anything from a downtrodden drug addict to an overly maternal coroner. That need to inhabit such a full range of personas is, says the actor, one of the guiding forces of her career. "I don't like to be pigeonholed; I don't like when people won't see me for something because they don't think I can do it," she says. "I always feel like, at least give me the shot."She is so up for anything that she'll even throw herself into grueling real-life research. As prep for her current gig as no-nonsense barkeep Ladonna Batiste-Williams on HBO's "Treme," Alexander worked in a New Orleans watering hole during Mardi Gras. "[The producers] took me to a funky, lowdown, gutbucket bar and said, 'You work here, and you're gonna work here for »

The James Clayton Column: Robin Hood rides the Tardis of revolution

13 May 2010 2:01 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Could Robin Hood use a bit of help from our favourite Time Lord?

Doctor Who and Robin Hood: two British icons that go above and beyond the call of duty to fight for the common people. Both are still going strong and sitting pretty atop the pop culture thrones of television and the movie screen respectively, despite it being 2010 and not actually 1963 or 1192.

Of course, they're not completely similar. Robin steals from the rich to give to the poor whereas the Doctor only gives them a free ride through trippy time and space in his Tardis, but that's not the point. Crucially, both are beloved British legends that have appeared on screen with an array of different faces.

There's a core character - sharp arrow shooter with a desire for social justice or two-hearted eccentric with a sonic screwdriver - and then from there the choice is yours. You can »

Dolly Parton: 'I'm grateful to Houston'

15 April 2010 5:16 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Dolly Parton has revealed that she is "grateful" to Whitney Houston for covering her song 'I Will Always Love You'. The track was originally written and recorded by Parton in 1973 before being performed 19 years later by Houston as the theme to the film The Bodyguard. Houston's version went on to sell over 15 million copies worldwide. Parton told Smooth Radio: "A lot of people say, 'That's Whitney's song', I say that's fine. I want her to have it as long as she sends me my money! "I would be a fool not to be grateful because I had no idea that that song could be done in the way that she did it or that it could be taken to that level (more) »

Scenes (Songs) We Love: "I Will Always Love You"

9 April 2010 4:45 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

You may be wondering why I'm posting a cover song sung by a cherubic Taiwanese kid on a reality TV singing show halfway around the world, and since it's a slow-ish news day here's my rationale: 23-year-old Lin Yu Chun is singing a version of Whitney Houston's epic rendition of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You," as heard on the timeless soundtrack to the major motion picture The Bodyguard! Give a listen to this video (after the jump), which has already earned over a million hits on the Interwebs, and Tell Me Lin isn't the second aural coming of Whitney in her prime.

The clip comes from Taiwanese reality show Super Star Avenue, which is totally a street I want to live on. Lin Yu Chun is already being called Asia's answer to Susan Boyle of "Britain's Got Talent." I can't wait to see kids in bowl haircuts and bowties next Halloween. »
