Connie Britton joins Ryan Murphy’s O.J. Simpson series American Crime Story

24 March 2015 1:08 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Writer/director Ryan Murphy and Connie Britton must have enjoyed working together on American Horror Story because the duo are collaborating again on his upcoming Ahs companion series American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.

Last night Murphy tweeted the news saying, “Excited to announce my friend Connie Britton will play Faye Resnick” in the first season of his upcoming, highly-anticipated true crime miniseries. If you can remember that far back, Resnick was a friend of Nicole Brown Simpson who, as a result of her reported drug-related debts, became involved in the case when O.J.’s defense team argued they prompted hit men to murder Simpson and Goldman.

Britton is now the second American Horror Story vet, along with Sarah Paulson (to play Marcia Clark), to join the show. Also onboard for the series are David Schwimmer playing Simpson’s good friend and attorney Robert Kardashian, Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran, »

An Official Bruce Lee Biopic Is In The Works, Get The Details

1 March 2015 12:57 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Whenever we talk about action, stunt work, or martial arts in a modern context, the name Bruce Lee is one that always tends to come up. The talent and effort that he put into his performances was always something to admire, be it in such films as Enter The Dragon, The Way Of The Dragon, or even in the television version of The Green Hornet that inspired the 2011 adaptation. Yet despite his impressive legacy, there's never been an official film detailing the life and times of the legendary performer. At least, that was the case until today's announcement that his family is seeking to tell the full story of Bruce Lee's extraordinary life. Collider ran a press release naming Shannon Lee, Bruce's daughter, as a producer on the still developing project. Lawrence Grey and Janet Yang, of Leaving Las Vegas and The People vs. Larry Flynt fame . respectively, will »

Bruce Lee Biopic Being Developed by His Family

27 February 2015 2:37 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Shannon Lee, daughter of legendary martial artist Bruce Lee, announced today that his legacy will be brought to the screen in a new Bruce Lee Biopic, the first to be made with his family's full involvement in the production. Lee's company Bruce Lee Entertainment has partnered with Lawrence Grey and Janet Yang to produce a definitive biopic of the iconic Hollywood and Chinese star. Here's what Shannon Lee had to say about the biopic in a statement.

"There have been projects out there involving my father, but they've lacked a complete understanding of his philosophies and artistry. They haven't captured the essence of his beliefs in martial arts or storytelling. The only way to get audiences to understand the depth and uniqueness of my father is to generate our own material and find amazing, like-minded partners to work with."

Bruce Lee's classic films shattered records with each successive release in the early '70s, »

American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson Is “Going To Be A Hoot”

24 February 2015 7:19 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy announced plans to create a companion series centering on infamous crimes throughout national history, then revealed the title of the first season as American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson, we were all more than a little skeptical. Murphy is not known for his subtlety or grace, but the Simpson murder trial is a true story of murder and deceit, which impacted many people. Now, the more we hear about American Crime Story, the less it seems like it’s going to be a respectful retelling of the trial – instead, it will veer closer to satire.

Vulture recently caught up with the season’s writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (Big Eyes, The People vs. Larry Flynt), who adapted The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson by Jeffrey Toobin, and their comments indicate that there will be some »

American Crime Story’s Writers on How They Will Portray the O.J. Simpson Trial

23 February 2015 1:54 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The more we learn about Ryan Murphy's American Crime Story, the more we're convinced it will be a campy, TV cult classic. The true-crime anthology will cover the O.J. Simpson murder trial in its first season, subtitled The People vs. O.J. Simpson. Vulture caught up with the show's writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (Big Eyes, Ed Wood, The People vs. Larry Flynt), at the Independent Spirit Awards to discuss how the story will take shape."It's going to be a hoot," Alexander told Vulture of what to expect from a cast that includes John Travolta as Robert Shapiro, David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian, Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark, and Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson. "The strange thing about the trial is that they [the real-life characters] all shoved themselves onto television and so a lot of lawyers ended up becoming 'personalities,' which is very unusual. So everybody in America »

Golden Globe Winners vs. Oscars: The 2015 Update!

12 January 2015 7:55 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In what is now a new and continuing tradition, the Golden Globe Awards have been revealed ahead of the Oscar nominations, which will be made public this Thursday. Of course, voting for the Oscar nominations was closed before the awards were revealed so don't think last night's wins will have any effect on the nominees. But this isn't an article designed to look at nominations, though we'll certainly get into a little of that. Instead we're looking at what chance last night's Globe winners have at winning the Oscar based on the recent Globe vs. Oscar history. This post serves as my ninth installment of my "Globes vs. Oscars" column (2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014) and we'll take a look at the past 30 years of Golden Globe winner history compared to the Oscars and see where last night's winners may gain an edge and where they most likely won't and we'll begin with the lead acting categories. »
