City of Angels (1998)
Refn is always an interesting director to watch, not exactly a fan of the mainstream, the Danish filmmaker enjoys presenting unsettling imagery and surreal plots for his films.
And it looks like his next TV endeavour won’t be any different, with Amazon’s Too Old To Die Young exploring the criminal underbelly of Los Angeles by following various killers’ existential journeys in becoming samurai in the City of Angels.
William Baldwin has now joined the cast, linking up with the likes of Miles Teller, Jena Malone, and John Hawkes.
Refn updated the cast via his Instagram, posting a photo of the actors’ photographs with him holding Baldwin’s image while wearing his trademark white shirt and sunglasses.
Refn is set to direct the entire series and Baldwin’s character,
Roven will receive the award at the 29th Annual Producers Guild Awards on Jan. 20 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Roven’s credits include “Wonder Woman,” Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” and the upcoming “Justice League,” which opens Nov. 17 and stars Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, Amber Heard, Jason Momoa, and Ezra Miller. Roven received a best picture Academy Award nomination for “American Hustle.”
“Chuck Roven is a producer’s producer,” Producers Guild Awards Chairs Donald De Line and Amy Pascal said. “Whether he’s working with fiercely independent voices or within the heart of the studio system, Chuck brings a seriousness of craft and an incredible instinct for story to every set he runs.

The late singer was honored with her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in front of Capitol Records on Friday, with thousands of fans showing up to be part of this historic moment.
Accepting the star on her behalf was Selena's sister, Suzette, who told Et on Thursday how excited she was that the day was finally here.
"I’m a little bit emotional, but more so, excited that this is happening and that there will be a place where Selena will be recognized as an artist," Suzette explained. "And, what better place than to have her star in front of the Capitol Records building. It’s a full circle moment for me."
Also in attendance were actresses Angélica Vale and Angélica María; Edward James Olmos; Selena director Gregory Nava; Selena's husband, Chris Perez; and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, who proclaimed Nov. 3 as
None of them were particularly memorable, of course, as they failed to capture the look and feel of their predecessor – not to mention the fact that the late Brandon Lee left some pretty big boots to fill. But that didn’t stem the tide, and in 2005, director Lance Mungia whipped together The Crow: Wicked Prayer, which is arguably the worst sequel of the lot.
But had things panned out differently, and Miramax green-lit James O’Barr’s original pitch, film fans may well have received a follow-up to The Crow that was worthy of the 1994 classic. As O’Barr tells Screen Geek, the proposed sequel would’ve taken things in a “completely different direction.”
My intention was to take it to a completely different direction.

Director-producer Brad Silberling (“City of Angels”) will lead the Polish films competition jury, alongside cinematographers Andrew Dunn (“The Bodyguard”), Denis Lenoir (“Demonlover”), Claudio Miranda (“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”) and VFX supervisor Mark H. Weingartner (“Inception”).
Last year’s docu prize achievement winner Jay Rosenblatt (“Human Remains”) will preside over the docu features jury, serving with writer-producer-director Sheila Curran Bernard (“Slavery by Another Name”), Dp John Davey (“La danse”), producer Karen Konicek (Zipporah Films) and director-producer Kristine Samuelson (“Arthur and Lillie

Over the past 10 years, Gosling has starred in seven movies where Los Angeles not only serves as the setting, but as a character. And he's the first to admit that the sunny, messy, dynamic sprawl is one of the keys to his storytelling.
"'L.A. worships everything and values nothing.' That was something my lady said to me one day, and I thought it was so funny I asked her if I could put it in the movie," Gosling told Et's Denny Directo during the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, where he was promoting 2016's La La Land. (The lady in question, of course, is Gosling's longtime partner Eva Mendes, although this being L.A., we do love the noirish connotations of him not identifying her by name.) "She was kidding, but it's a funny thing to say... I loved when
"...when 'Kolchak' put a stake through the heart of vampire 'Janos Skorzeny' and all his victims were cremated, that was thought to have been the end of the line for the vampire.
"However, one victim, a call girl named 'Catherine Rawlins' was not found and after a road crew unknowingly freed her she begins a rampage of her own and eventually makes her way to Los Angeles.
"Kolchak heads for L.A. to hunt her down and tries to stop her before the 'City of Angels' becomes the city of the undead..."

The network series, which debuted as a midseason replacement in spring 2016, ignored all of the trappings and set him up as a police consultant who saw a shrink, and was annoyed by his brother.
