Salma Hayek on Donald Trump’s Immigration Remarks: ‘I Cannot Be Insulted by Stupidity’

31 July 2015 1:01 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Salma Hayek, who was born in Mexico but moved to Los Angeles in 1991, isn’t going to let Donald Trump‘s controversial remarks about immigrants put her down. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times on Friday, the “Frida” actress opened up on her thoughts about Trump’s comments, saying that “it’s a very simple tactic for self-promotion. What’s sad is how easily people are manipulated. I’m not insulted because I cannot be insulted by stupidity.” Moreover, Hayek says she will not easily be manipulated by uninformed people.

Taylor, Fincher Team On "Fight Club" Musical?

12 July 2015 12:53 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It's a teaming of three greats that will have many freaking out - "Fight Club" author Chuck Palahniuk, acclaimed "The Lion King" stage director Julie Taymor, and acclaimed filmmaker David Fincher.

Fincher famously helmed the beloved 1999 film adaptation of Palahniuk's "Fight Club", and now a tweet from the author suggests that Taymor is "working with David Fincher on a 'Fight Club' rock opera."

It sounds like Taymor, who has helmed a few films herself including "The Tempest," "Titus," "Across the Universe" and "Frida," is spearheading whatever this "Fight Club: The Musical"-style project is. How much Fincher is involved, who knows at this point but expect more news about it soon.

Julie Taymor working with David Fincher on a Fight Club rock opera? You didn’t hear it from me. :) #Sdcc

Chuck Palahniuk Teases A 'Fight Club' Rock Opera From Julie Taymor & David Fincher

12 July 2015 9:10 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Though she has occasional dalliances in the cinematic world — 2002’s “Frida” remains a highlight, though 2007’s “Across The Universe” has some fans — Julie Taymor is mostly thought of as a theater director. Her stage production of “The Lion King” is estimated to have been seen by over 45 million people, and she may be on her way to translating another pre-existing and already successful work to the stage. According to a completely unexpected tweet by author Chuck Palahniuk, Taymor is “working with David Fincher on a ‘Fight Club’ rock opera.” Cruelly, Palahniuk doesn’t elaborate, leaving us to our unanswered questions. Presuming Fincher is actually involved, is it a fair assumption that the rock opera will closely mimic the aesthetic of his 1999 adaptation instead of Palahniuk’s novel? Taymor is not only a director in her own right but also a titan of the stage, so how/why exactly is she “working with” Fincher? »

Composer Elliot Goldenthal Is Experiencing a ‘Dream’ Spring

19 June 2015 5:42 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As far as working couples go, director Julie Taymor and composer Elliot Goldenthal might be the most daring, experimental and sophisticated in the showbiz firmament. Their film, theater and opera collaborations combine complex soundscapes with highly stylized visuals.

Their latest phantasmagoria, Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” — a filmed record of Taymor’s staging of the play at the Theatre for a New Audience in Brooklyn that debuted at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival last September — is no different, despite the production’s spare trappings.

“It was really simple onstage,” explains Goldenthal, “just a few projections, and the audience surrounding the actors. It was mainly an actors’ piece.”

And yet the production — which is being presented event-style in approximately 85 theaters for one night only on Monday, June 22 — appears highly cinematic, bathed in stark, moonlight-blue lighting, and adorned with gorgeous costumes that bridge contemporary and period worlds with the spirit world of gods and fairies. »

Cannes: Salma Hayek On Producing ‘Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet’ (Exclusive)

14 June 2015 10:08 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Growing up in Mexico, Salma Hayek remembered seeing the “The Prophet,” the bestselling book of 26 prose poems by Kahlil Gibran, on her grandfather’s nightstand. “I was very close to him,” Hayek recalled. “And to me, when I see the cover, I cannot think of anyone else but him. There’s a very special meaning for me with the book.”

In 2011, when the project came across her producing desk, Hayek immediately remembered how special the story was to her. She signed on to turn the material, which was first published in 1923, into a 2D-animated movie. After countless conference calls and financing deals, a work-in-progress version of the film will screen tonight, during a festival presentation created for the project.

Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet,” which has a budget of $12 million, was a global effort in every way. Hayek recruited nine directors from around the world to animate and tell different vignettes from the book. »

Chris Pratt, Terrence Howard Crack Jokes at the Guys’ Choice Awards

7 June 2015 9:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A rock band trio of men in Yeti costumes, a chandelier made of deer skulls and live reindeer were among the décor at the taping of Spike’s 2015 Guys’ Choice Awards Saturday at Sony Studios.

Hosts Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard (co-stars on “Empire”) helped honor Chris Pratt as Guy of the Year, Liam Neeson as Biggest Asskicker and Ben Kingsley with the Brass Balls award.

Pratt joked about the winter theme of the awards show while accepting his prize. “Thank you to the Spike Guys awards. I don’t know if you can see this in the background,” Pratt said, referring to a giant deer skull above a fireplace on stage. “I shot that deer, and Spike owes me some money for having it on their fireplace.”

Henson and Howard said they hosted for one simple reason: Black people are taking over television.

Julie Taymor's Visual Extravaganza 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' Hits Theaters (Video)

5 June 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Taymor's latest Shakespeare film, shot by her "Frida" cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto, combines her 2014 acclaimed Brooklyn live theater production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" with hand-held close-up filming. (See video highlights of my onstage Q & A with her below.) Shakespeare is Julie Taymor's touchstone. She comes back to him not only in countless stage productions but on film as well, from the exhilarating visual and violent "Titus" with Jessica Lange and Anthony Hopkins to Helen Mirren's incomparable take on Prospero in "The Tempest." Taymor also loves the Beatles ("Across the Universe"), Frida Kahlo ("Frida"), "The Lion King" (the $1 billion-grossing Tony-winning musical), opera (Mozart's "The Magic Flute," life partner Elliot Goldenthal's "Grendel") and her swooping version of the Broadway hit "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark"--for which she successfully sued to get »

Krakow’s Film and Music Festival composes itself

3 June 2015 8:10 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

A celebration of film and television music was once again at the heart of Krakow’s Film and Music Festival, now in its eighth year.

Running from May 27-31, the event brought together more than 58 international composers - including Stephen Warbeck (Shakespeare in Love, Mon Roi), Ramin Djawadi (Game of Thrones), Jeff Beal (House of Cards), John Lunn (Downton Abbey) and Trevor Morris (The Borgias, The Tudors) – for a culmination of performances, panels and master classes.

“Composers are not often given the attention they deserve,” said Artistic Director Robert Piaskowski. “So we wanted to create a space that presents film music as art, and where audiences can come and appreciate a score’s symphonic sounds.”

Piaskowski is not alone in his interests. The festival now aligns itself as the start of the season, with similar musical events taking place in Tenerife and Cordoba in July and Vienna and Gent (that also hosts the World Soundtrack Awards) in October »

Diego Luna & Ben Mendelsohn Also Cast in 'Star Wars: Rogue One'

More casting news for the upcoming Star Wars Anthology spin-off titled Rogue One, being directed by Gareth Edwards. With shooting starting up soon, they're finalizing casting and so far we've seen them making some excellent choices: Felicity Jones and Riz Ahmed are confirmed. And now Variety can confirm a few others: Diego Luna and Ben Mendelsohn. The plot, revealed at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim a few months ago, follows a band of resistance fighters on a daring mission to steal the Death Star (plans). Luna will play a lead role alongside Jones and Ahmed, however Mendelsohn is apparently playing the lead antagonist (or "primary villain" as he's being called). Now this new movie is really starting to come together. Mexican actor Diego Luna has appeared in a number of roles in various movies, taking on more lead roles recently.

StreamFix: Movie classics on Netflix written by women over 40

21 April 2015 2:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Meryl Streep, who is officially a genius angel sent from a better dimension, is funding a screenwriting lab for women over 40. The initiative aims to create opportunities for that contingent, and it'll be run by New York Women in Film and Television and Iris, a collective of women filmmakers. Because this idea is so brilliant, we'll toast a bunch of 40+-year-old female screenwriters whose works are available on Netflix now. The Kids are All Right (Lisa Cholodenko) Aside from the fact that "The Kids are All Right" feels like a prime James L. Brooks feature, the 2010 family drama gives you a myriad of irresistible moments and performances. Annette Bening is biting and funny as an alcoholic lesbian mother; Julianne Moore is harried and loving as her conflicted wife. Mark Ruffalo, Mia Wasikowska, and Josh Hutcherson add perfectly pitched dramedy with their sincere roles. You want to hug this movie, but »

Salma Hayek Closes Women of the World Festival, Presents ‘The Prophet’

9 March 2015 4:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Actress-producer Salma Hayek capped off the Women of the World Festival at London’s Southbank Center on Sunday, delivering an empowering message to women from all walks of life, after presenting animated pic “The Prophet,” which she produced.

Hayek spoke of how the world “has been created by systems designed for men,” and constantly reiterated that women need to fight to break down barriers in their lives.

The Prophet” is an animated movie inspired by Kahlil Gibran’s poetry essays, in which each poem is presented by a different form of animation.

Hayek said of the film: “It’s a unique film experience, a childish story that takes you on a journey — a journey inside yourself.”

She admitted that the concept of the film had made it very difficult to sell, although she is no stranger to making films out of the ordinary. “I only do impossible films,” she said, »

Guns are awesome, hot girls are awesome, and the two combined together nearly defies the laws of all things awesome. That’s why Everly, starring one of the hottest gals in Hollywood, Salma Hayek, as a sexy defender of the second amendment, looks like a must-see!

This remix of the Vega, Baby! produced and Radius/TWC distributed action thriller perfectly captures the “gonzo” nature of the film. Relm’s masterful artistry transforms the dynamic soundscape in Everly from visual and audio samples into a darkly energetic sensory experience.

Film-by-film with Alfred Molina: Spider-Man, Love Is Strange, more

11 February 2015 7:20 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Since making his movie debut as Harrison Ford's doomed sidekick in Raiders of the Lost Ark, Alfred Molina has appeared in everything from critically-acclaimed dramas like Prick Up Your Ears to Hollywood blockbusters ranging from Species to Spider-Man 2.

His latest film, Love Is Strange, centres on a long-term gay couple who are forced to live apart while they search for a new home. It opens on February 13, a canny piece of counter-programming to the omnipresent Fifty Shades of Grey. To mark the occasion, Digital Spy took a trip down memory lane with Molina to speak to him about the roles that defined his career.
