Red Granite Pictures, the producer behind The Wolf of Wall Street, Dumb and Dumber To and other films, has agreed to pay $60 million to the U.S. government in order to settle allegations that it was funded in part by money siphoned from a Malaysian sovereign wealth fund called 1 Malaysia Development Berhad, or 1Mdb.

Red Granite was co-founded in 2010 by Riza Aziz, the stepson of Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, and Joey McFarland, previously an investor in a talent brokerage company.

Following a lavish launch party in Cannes, the company quickly established itself as major force in the...

Dumb and Dumber Mini Bike goes up for Auction on eBay.

To this day I’m still amazed what people will buy. The bike from Dumb and Dumber is up for auction on eBay and as of now the price is well over $29,000. I don’t know whether to shake my head or call out the people that are trying to sell it and wonder if they have a certificate of authenticity. The site has the photos and even has a picture of the mountain pass where they shot the scene of Lloyd and Harry making their way to Aspen, but I’m still not quite convinced. It’s simply too easy for people

Case Study: How a 1994 Nick Cave Song Became a Favorite of Music Supervisors

Case Study: How a 1994 Nick Cave Song Became a Favorite of Music Supervisors
“You’ll see him in your head/On the TV screen/Hey buddy, I’m warning you/To turn it off”

That’s the refrain to “Red Right Hand,” a clanging, gloom-and-doom, six-minute-plus blues noir penned by Nick Cave and his fellow Bad Seeds, guitarist Mick Harvey and drummer Thomas Wydler, for the band’s 1994 album, “Let Love In,” originally released on Mute Records. Some 24 years later, the darkly foreboding track, reputedly a nod to the vengeful hand of God in John Milton’s epic “Paradise Lost,” has gained an unlikely second act as a sync magnet for a wide range of high-visibility movies, TV shows and ad campaigns.

Mute Song’s David McGinnis has been working with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds for the past 18 years and helped engineer a variety of sync usages over that time. Mute Songs, the music publishing arm for Daniel Miller’s groundbreaking label, has published

Hollywood's oldest working actress, Connie Sawyer, died at home after an incredibly long and prolific career. Connie reportedly passed away at her Woodland Hills home.

Sawyer's been on a number of hit shows over her six-decade career,

53rd Chicago International Film Festival Review – I, Tonya (2017)

I,Tonya, 2017.

Directed by Craig Gillespie.

Starring Margot Robbie, Sebastian Stan, Julianne Nicholson, Paul Walter Hauser, Bobby Cannavale, Caitlin Carver, Bojana Novakovic, Paul Walter Hauser, and Allison Janney.


Competitive ice skater Tonya Harding rises among the ranks at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, but her future in the sport is thrown into doubt when her ex-husband intervenes.

Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street gave Margot Robbie a huge opportunity that she fearlessly seized, dressing up as Harley Quinn broke her into the mainstream as a Hollywood star, and now I, Tonya should net her a first-time Oscar nomination. Directed by Craig Gillespie (last year’s The Finest Hours), the biopic depicts the figure skating career of the infamous Tonya Harding, allowing for Margot Robbie to undergo a drastic physical and personality transformation shedding all that starlet glamour to bring out some old-fashioned white trash Americana.

Why Jim Carrey fought to cast Jeff Daniels in “Dumb and Dumber”

There was a very good and very simple reason why Jim Carrey fought so hard to bring Jeff Daniels into the Dumb and Dumber movie. He didn’t want another comedian trying to top him, he wanted an actor that was going to keep him on his toes, just as he would do to the actor in turn. Quite honestly Jeff Daniels is not a comedian. He can be funny, he can be a star in a comedic movie, but he’s not a comedian. And next to Jim Carrey he’s not even a novice. But if Dumb and Dumber would have

You Have to See The Walking Dead's Jadis in Her Other Big Role

Image Source: AMC Jadis, the head of The Walking Dead's junkyard dwellers, known as the Scavengers, is an odd, slightly comic presence in season seven, but she has been largely absent in season eight until Sunday night's "The King, the Widow and Rick," which could just as well have been called "The King, the Widow, Rick and the Weird Lady With Jim Carrey's Haircut From Dumb and Dumber." Played by Scottish actress Pollyanna McIntosh, Jadis appears early in the episode while working on a wire sculpture and wearing nothing but a red apron. When there's a knock at the Scavengers' outer gate, she changes into her usual black hoodie and pants before greeting her guest - Rick, there seeking her support in the war against the Saviors - and instead channels her weirdness through kooky koans like "trust you, shot you" and "why back after?"

Godless: This Actor Is Almost Unrecognizable as the Villain

  • BuzzSugar
Netflix released a new miniseries on Nov. 22 titled Godless, a Western hearkening back to the days of classics like The Searchers, Bad Day at Black Rock, and Shane. Like any good Western, it has a terrifying bad guy at its center. In the case of Godless, that man is Frank Griffin, an outlaw laying waste to the countryside as he tracks down his son-like partner who left Griffin's gang when he could no longer abide their brutal behavior. If Griffin looks familiar, that's because he definitely is - but Jeff Daniels is almost unrecognizable in the role. RelatedJeff Daniels Just Pulled Double Duty as 2 of His Most Famous Characters First of all, Daniels doesn't often sport such wild hair choices. But in Godless, it is 1884 and outlaws definitely did not have time to be well-groomed, what with all that killing and robbing and stuff. The shaggy hair and bushy beard are historically on point.

My 5: Corbin Bleu’s Favorite Modern, Holiday Classics (Exclusive)

My 5: Corbin Bleu’s Favorite Modern, Holiday Classics (Exclusive)
Only 28 years old, Holiday Inn had been out for nearly 50 years by the time Corbin Bleu was born. But that didn’t stop the former High School Musical star and Dancing With the Stars contestant from stepping into the role made famous by Fred Astaire in Broadway’s musical adaptation of the film.

In fact, Bleu brought a modern flair to the character of Ted Hanover, a professional dancer who loses his partner to an oil tycoon and later sets his sights on friend Jim Hardy’s holidays-only hotel performer and love interest, Linda Mason. In one particular number from the Broadway show, “Let's Say It With Firecrackers,” Bleu performs a solo tap dance with the accompaniment of firecrackers with so much pizazz and style that even Astaire would have been impressed.

“We were really giving a new birth to the new number,” Bleu tells Et about working with choreographer Denis Jones to morph it for his body

Jeff Daniels on His Outlaw Turn in Netflix's Feminist Western 'Godless'

When Jeff Daniels imagines all of the characters he has ever played standing together in one room, he knows that notorious criminal Frank Griffin, his role in Netflix's Western Godless, will stand apart from the others.

"At the end of my life when I’m looking back, and you want to invite everybody you’ve ever played to a party and you want to see who talks to who, you want to see Harry Dunne standing there with Frank Griffin when Will McAvoy comes up," Daniels tells The Hollywood Reporter. "Those conversations, I’d love to hear."

Doc NYC Review: ‘Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond’ is Hilarious and Unexpectedly Moving

Reflecting on a production that might have been just a little more interesting than the excellent film they were making, Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton is the hilarious and occasionally moving portrait of Jim Carrey’s time making Milos Forman’s 1999 Andy Kaufman biopic Man on The Moon.

Told through archival footage of both Andy Kaufman’s performances and Jim Carrey in character throughout the shoot of Man on the Moon (as Andy and his evil alternative persona lounge singer Tony Clifton), director Chris Smith frames the footage with a new interview with Carrey, bearded and reflexive about a dark period in his life. Hot off a triple success of broad comedies — Ace Ventura, The Mask, and Dumb and Dumber — the actor seeks meaning in his life in the wake of his father’s death. Writing a $10 million dollar check

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective to return, Young Guns and Major League reboots also in development

Ace Ventura is definitely a character of his time, one who launched the 90’s success story that was Jim Carrey, while grossing over $100m worldwide and creating catchphrases that have echoed through to today.

Now, off the back of the news that Morgan Creek Productions, the company behind the film and its sequel, When Nature Calls, are rebranding, comes the announcement from Deadline that they plan to revive the pet detective.

It’s highly unlikely that Carrey will return, having recently revealed that his old self doesn’t exist anymore, and with Man on the Moon documentary Jim and Andy: The Great Beyond set to underline his underrated strengths as an actor, he’ll probably concentrate on more serious projects, such as Michel Gondry directed Showtime half-hour, Kidding.

Morgan Creek Entertainment Group will move forward with the Ace Ventura franchise regardless, saying “we wanted to do a mainstream theatrical production relaunch,

How an Independent Filmmaker Went From Being the Farrelly Brothers’ Assistant to Making the Movies That Studios Wouldn’t

How an Independent Filmmaker Went From Being the Farrelly Brothers’ Assistant to Making the Movies That Studios Wouldn’t
Editor’s note: Nearly 20 years after making his feature directorial debut, Josh Klausner’s latest feature film, the musical “Wanderland,” is set for its world premiere. Klausner’s path from indie film and back again is a unique one, including stopovers in the studio world alongside big names like Peter and Bobby Farrelly, Paul McCartney, and Shrek himself.

We asked Klausner to reflect on his career so far, and what’s next for a filmmaker who has never taken the easy way.

My path to directing “Wanderland” was a bit like the rambling journey its main character Alex takes over the course of the movie. For me, it was about stepping off the path I was on as a studio screenwriter to reengage again as an independent filmmaker.

You’d never know it from “Shrek Forever After” or “Date Night,” but I always believed I’d primarily work in the world of independent film.

Batman Forever: Jim Carrey Says Tommy Lee Jones Hated Him On Set

Batman Forever: Jim Carrey Says Tommy Lee Jones Hated Him On Set
Jim Carrey was recently on Norm MacDonald Live where he revealed that Tommy Lee Jones hated him when they were making Batman Forever together. Carrey was playing the Riddler while Jones was playing Two-Face in the Joel Schumacher directed movie. The movie was seen as divisive after the Tim Burton movies with Michael Keaton starring as Batman, though it was not universally hated like the next installment in the franchise, which has definitely not aged well, so don't bother going back for a nostalgic viewing. Anyway, while Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones were getting ready to do a scene together, Jones decided to tell Carrey about his true feelings.

Jim Carrey has talked about the subject before in the past, but the subject came up again when Norm MacDonald asked him about it. Carrey maintains that he still has nothing but the utmost respect for Tommy Lee Jones, but

Jim Carrey to Star in New Showtime Comedy Series ‘Kidding’

Jim Carrey to Star in New Showtime Comedy Series ‘Kidding’
Jim Carrey will star in a new Showtime comedy series in his first regular television role since his days on the 1990’s sketch show “In Living Color,” Showtime announced Thursday.

The half-hour series is titled “Kidding,” in which Carrey will play Jeff, a.k.a. Mr. Pickles, an icon of children’s television, who also anchors a multimillion dollar branding empire. But when his family begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairy tale or fable or puppet will guide him through this crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope. Showtime has ordered a 10-episode first season.

The role further expands Carrey’s relationship with Showtime, as he currently executive produces the dramedy “I’m Dying Up Here,” which was recently renewed for a second season.

The project will also reunite Carrey with “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” director Michel Gondry, who will direct for “Kidding.” Dave Holstein–a writer and producer on both Showtime
