Channing Tatum has set up the tear-jerker memoir “Two Kisses for Maddy” at Sony’s TriStar label to produce and possibly star through his Free Association production company and Temple Hill Entertainment.
The father-daughter drama is based on Matthew Logelin’s memoir “Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss and Love,” which centers on his marriage, the death of his wife 27 hours after she gave birth to their daughter and his experiences of raising his daughter as a single parent.
“Two Kisses,” which took its title from the kisses Logelin gave his daughter each night, landed on the New York Times bestseller list when it was published in 2011.
The project was set up in 2012 as a Lifetime movie with Marta Kaufman and Denise Dinovi as exec producers but did not go forward.

Exclusive: As fans of the show and Breaking Bad know, there always been a self-promoting connection between Saul Goodman and billboards. And now AMC's Better Call Saul is inaugurating its 2015 Emmy efforts with an interactive campaign on and above the streets of the City of Angels. The first billboard went up this week outside the Andaz Hotel on Sunset in West Hollywood with more to follow next week. There also will be posters at Metro bus stops throughout Los Angeles… »
With shooting close to wrapping up in Los Angeles and plenty of interest shown in the film at Cannes, the first images from Nicolas Winding Refn’s new thriller The Neon Demon have arrived online via Screen International.

In short, “Her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women that will do anything to take what she has.” So pretty much business as usual in La, then. Refn is about to kick off post-production on the film, which should be with »

Some were worried that NCIS: Los Angeles being moved to Monday nights, away from the NCIS mothership, would lead to the show's cancellation. Well, the ratings have dropped quite a lot but the series will return for a seventh season.
Based in the City of Angels, NCIS: Los Angeles follows the members of an elite division of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS), one that specializes in undercover assignments. This drama stars Chris O'Donnell, LL Cool J, Linda Hunt, Daniela Ruah, Eric Christian Olsen, Barrett Foa, Renée Felice Smith, and Miguel Ferrer.
Oh, dance fans, I had a hard time watching this episode of "Dancing with the Stars." Don't get me wrong, there's actually a lot of great dancing here for America's Choice and a trio round. The problem is, every couple to perform reminds me of last week's travesty: the heart-breaking elimination that sent home our beloved Willow. She should still be here, and it's disgusting to me that she's not. It's particularly hard to be objective about Chris and Robert when I'm still so angry over Willow's ouster.
But there's still lots to admire in this exciting "race to the semi-finals" episode, filled with chills, spills, high pressure, and even two birthdays. Yes, Erin is presented with a cake for her birthday, which she doesn't eat herself (women almost never eat on television) but shares with Tom for his 60th birthday on Wednesday. It's also America's Choice, as the fans »

Nicolas Cage has a formidable reputation, which is unsurprising given that he has been performing onscreen since 1981, but that was long before the internet got hold of him and his work. Now, in the fourth decade of a distinguished career, the Academy Award winner and his back catalogue are the inspiration for a range of ‘memes’ based on everything from his hair, to his tendency to deliver performances that seem to be somewhat off-the-wall.
He may not have enjoyed much box office success in recent years, but Nicolas Cage has a very devoted fan base that have a particular appreciation for projects and scenes in which he has a chance to go ‘Full Cage.’ This usually involves making some scary faces – often with wide eyes and a ghoulish grin – shouting very loudly, and gesticulating wildly. There may be screaming involved, and another person is very often the focus of his menace. »

“Something Rotten” a musical comedy send-up of both Shakespeare and Broadway musicals, is hoping to defy the odds by opening cold on the Main Stem without an out-of-town tryout. (The show’s producers scuttled a planned Seattle run this spring to open at the St. James Theatre.) -Break- It’s a tactic that used to be pretty common. Four of the Best Musical winners in the 1990s opened cold (“City of Angels,” “The Will Rogers Follies,” “Passion,” and “Titanic”). But more recently, producers have tended to prefer working out a shows kinks away from the blitzkrieg spotlight of Midtown Manhattan (and the endless-preview fiasco of “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” reinforced the soundness of that strategy). In the last 15 years, only one cold opener has managed to take the top Tony prize: “The Book of Mormon” in 2011. Like that show, “Rotten” has the m »
Some of you may have already seen this video, but I still feel it is worth sharing. Kaipotainment (the same peeps who do the X-Cats videos) has created a very awesome short called "Star Wars: Invasion Los Angeles." It's pretty much Jonathan Liebesman's Battle: Los Angeles, but shorter, and featuring Imperial Forces invading the City of Angels instead of generic looking aliens. The special effects are a little spotty and definitely not on par with what »

As if parking in Los Angeles wasn't bad enough. Plastic Jesus, the artist who is quickly making a name for himself as the Banksy of the City of Angels, is at it again with his latest art installation—this time taking aim at the Kardashians. Signs have begun popping up all around L.A. that read "No Kardashian Parking Anytime," prompting many to take to social media to share the hilarious posters. Plastic Jesus, who first became famous with his "Stop Making Stupid People Famous" signs, spoke to E! News about what prompted his latest installation. "It's double-sided. It's intended to criticize us as consumers and the media," he shared. "Without us, »
The cameras have already started to roll on Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn’s latest stab at the dark heart of the world. He’s currently conjuring up female-led horror movie The Neon Demon, and has just added Desmond Harrington to the ensemble.Elle Fanning leads a cast that also includes Jena Malone, Karl Glusman, Bella Heathcote, Abbey Lee, Christina Hendricks and Keanu Reeves in the story that finds aspiring model Jesse (Fanning) moving to the City Of Angels only to find that it hides some very dark terrors. In short, “Her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women that will do anything to take what she has.” Which, weirdly, is paraphrased from a slogan on one of the greeting signs when you land at Lax.“I very much look forward to the odyssey I’ll be taking with all these wonderful actresses (and a few »
The first teaser for the much-anticipated “Walking Dead” spinoff aired Sunday night, showing Los Angeles as the center of a deadly virus. “Morning Los Angeles, hope you got your flu shot,” the radio host says at the open of the 15-second teaser, alerting La citizens a virus is swirling around 5 states and headed for the City of Angels. A zombie-looking man then appears in a pitch-black tunnel, apparently in L.A.

Directed by Hubert Cornfield
It is a wet, late night. Raindrops fall down on the sleepy Utah countryside like a hail of bullets on a battlefield. Five men in two trucks drive silently to a mysterious location, each wrestling internally with the rising tension befitting a major heist scheme. They are Eddie (Gene Raymond), Commando (Wayne Morris), Skeets (Elisha Cook Jr.), Roly (Stafford Repp) and Frankie (Steven Ritch, who also serves as screenwriter). Amidst the impressive storm they successfully halt a speeding train, blow up the outside wall to one of its cars and make away from a hefty sum of gold bullion. This is but the first part of their plan, for now the group must traverse police roadblocks along the way to the City of Angels, all while under the guise of various types of truck drivers (liquid chemical transportation, »

Mama's got her hands full! Kourtney Kardashian was spotted running errands with her adorable daughter, Penelope Disick, earlier today near her home in Calabasas. The mother of three donned workout clothing for the outing and managed to make balancing a toddler and a handbag look like a piece of cake. The eldest of the Kardashian sisters has been out and about after taking some time to focus on her second son, Reign Aston Disick, who was born this past December. Kourtney was seen grabbing lunch with her longtime partner Scott Disick yesterday, wearing a pair of flattering skinny jeans, nude pumps and a matching tank top. And even though it was fairly warm in the City of Angels, the »

AMC announced March 9 that it had picked up not one but two seasons of the new series, which will debut its six-episode first season in late summer 2015.

After what seems like years of La-bashing, Lena Dunham may be trading in her New York hustle-and-bustle for a little bit of that City of Angels lifestyle. Rumors have been floating around that the Girls creator is about to close on an almost-$3-million-dollar house in Hollywood, which is a major change from her current digs in Brooklyn. The star isn't commenting on why she's making the switch, but it would make sense that she's finding herself in Tinseltown more and more these days. Either that or she found that a New York City without Beyoncé and Jay Z is not a New York City worth living in. Regardless, Dunham's legions of fans are no doubt sitting on pins and needles wondering »
Grace Helbig and Hannah Hart will soon have a claim to fame as two female superheroes. The YouTubers have teamed with Legendary Digital Media and Fullscreen to bring the online video masses a reboot of the 1970’s TV show Electra Woman and Dyna Girl.
Electra Woman and Dyna Girl tells the story of two superheroes who leave Akron, Ohio, for Los Angeles, California, to find better crime-fighting opportunities. However, the two women endowed with unique powers reach the City of Angels only to find far more competition (both internal and external) than they were expecting. Helbig will star as Electra Woman and Hart as Dyna Girl.
While the format and platform of the Electra Woman and Dyna Girl project is yet to be determined, Fullscreen is on board to release the project in the U.S., with Legendary Television Distribution handling global distribution. Music video director Chris Marrs Piliero is set to helm the project, »
