Jennifer Lopez to Star in and Produce Romantic Comedy ‘Second Act’

22 June 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jennifer Lopez will star in and produce the romantic comedy “Second Act” for STXfilms as part of the company’s efforts to focus on female-driven movies.

STXfilms touted the movie as being in the vein of “Working Girl” and “Maid in Manhattan.” Lopez will portray a big box store employee who reinvents her life and her lifestyle, which gets her the chance to prove to Madison Avenue that street smarts are as valuable as a college degree.

“There are so many things I love about this project and script,” said Lopez. “People try to put women to sleep at a certain age. ‘Second Act’ is a story that empowers the every woman to do more, to be more, and not limit their dreams. I am thrilled to partner with Stx as they continue to create and empower the female audience.”

Veteran comedy director Peter Segal will direct the film. His credits include “50 First Dates,” “Anger Management,” and “Get Smart.”

The project was developed by Stx with Lopez from an idea conceived by Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Justin Zackham. The two wrote the script for “Second Act,” which will be produced by Lopez, Goldsmith-Thomas, Zackham and Benny Medina.

Adam Fogelson, Chairman of STXfilms, and the studio’s president of production Sam Brown made the announcement Thursday.

“When Jennifer, Elaine and Justin came to us with this idea, we loved it right away,” said Fogelson. “The premise of reinventing yourself and creating a career and life-defining second act is hugely relatable and aspirational. Jennifer’s talents as a film and television actress, producer and recording artist are legendary. She is a true global superstar and and we think she is perfect for this role.”

Lopez starred in several successful romantic comedies and dramas between 2001 and 2005, including “The Wedding Planner,” “Maid in Manhattan,” “Shall We Dance,” and “Monster in Law.” Other key credits include “Out of Sight,” “The Cell,” and “Anaconda.” She starred opposite Ryan Guzman in 2015’s erotic thriller “The Boy Next Door.”

Stx noted in the announcement that its next six releases feature women in leading roles — “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,” “Molly’s Game,” “Gringo,” “A Bad Moms Christmas” and “The Happytime Murders.”

British TV Rules Monte Carlo TV Fest, With Double Wins for ‘Victoria,’ ‘Fleabag’

20 June 2017 1:27 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

British television dominated the 57th Monte Carlo Television Festival where ITV’s glossy period drama “Victoria” won Golden Nymph Awards for both best TV drama and actress, while edgy series “Fleabag,” from the BBC and Amazon, scooped the best comedy prize and the actress nod in that section.

The actress statuettes went to Jenna Coleman, who plays the titular queen in “Victoria,” and to Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the star, creator and writer of “Fleabag.”

Scottish comedian Robbie Coltrane took the prize for best actor in the long fiction section, which comprises TV movies and miniseries, for his performance in Channel 4’s four-part “National Treasure.” Coltrane plays a beloved television comedian accused of rape. The show goes out on Hulu in the U.S.

The fiction jury headed by Argentina’s Juan Jose Campanella (“The Secret in Their Eyes”) also awarded the Golden Nymph for best long fiction to French Isis-themed telepic “Ne m’abandonne pas” (“Don »

Why Avengers Worked & Suicide Squad Didn’t, According To Chris Pratt

25 April 2017 7:48 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Like it or not, we live in an age of shared universes. Yes, it sounds like yet another Hollywood trend, like 3D or superhero movies, but in my opinion it's anything but. Growing up, I dreamed of a time when a Batman movie could work its way into a Superman movie. However, given the limitations of Hollywood at the time, we simply couldn’t make it work at the time. The closest thing we ever got to something like that was seeing Michael Keaton play Ray Nicolette in Jackie Brown and Out of Sight. Other than that, all we had to rely on was sequels, and even then, the same actors coming back was an unlikely prospect. The fact that we do it now is a huge plus in living in an era like today, even if they aren't all perfect.

Anatahan (Josef von Sternberg)

Josef von Sternberg called Anatahan his best film. Borne from more than a decade’s worth of frustration with the studio system, it was, as the last picture he completed, his stamp on his time as a director. Even then, when released in 1953, it was only released in a butchered format, and, as it often goes in such cases, was subsequently abandoned by popular consciousness. But a few times each year, cinephiles (at least »

Crime Heads South In This New Photo From Steven Soderbergh’s Heist Comedy ‘Logan Lucky’

21 April 2017 8:51 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While Steven Soderbergh is notoriously indecisive when it comes to the type of filmmaker he would like to be — causing him to move suddenly and irregularly between blockbuster, independent, and micro-budget projects — the one consistent throughout his career has been his knack for films about criminals. From the “Ocean’s 11” franchise to his underseen adaptation of Elmore Leonard‘s “Out of Sight,” Soderbergh is arguably at his best when making films about people who find themselves on the wrong side of the law.

Donnie Darko (Richard Kelly)

Last year marked the 15-year anniversary of Richard Kelly’s debut cult curio, Donnie Darko. While the film’s cult-status has elevated it into its own separate canon alongside other 21st-century indie-cult hits, Kelly’s two other films — the positively delirious and daring Southland Tales and the labyrinthine sci-fi period piece The Box — prove that he is a director deserving of much greater consideration. Sadly it’s been about eight years since a new »

Don Cheadle to Star in Historical Drama ‘Prince of Darkness’

10 April 2017 4:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Don Cheadle will star in and produce “Prince of Darkness,” a biopic of 19th century black millionaire Jeremiah G. Hamilton.

Steven Baigelman, who co-wrote the “Miles Ahead” screenplay with Cheadle, has been tapped to adapt the “Prince of Darkness” script from Shane White’s book “Prince of Darkness: The Story of JeremiahJeremiah G. Hamilton, Wall Street’s First Black Millionaire.”

White’s book portrays Hamilton as a larger-than-life character who defied convention during the period and amassed a $2 million fortune by the time of his death in 1875. He dealt extensively in the white business world, married a white woman, bought a mansion in rural New Jersey, and owned railroad stock on trains he was not legally allowed to ride.

When Hamilton died, he was often referred to as the richest black man in the U.S. White’s book was the winner of the 2015 Society for Historians of the »

20th Century Women (Mike Mills)

That emotional profundity most directors try to build to across an entire film? Mike Mills achieves it in every scene of 20th Century Women. There’s such a debilitating warmness to both the vibrant aesthetic and construction of its dynamic characters as Mills quickly soothes one into his story that you’re all the more caught off-guard as the flurry of emotional wallops are presented. Without ever hitting a tonal misstep, Mills’ latest »

Love Actually: Close-Up on Albert Brooks’ "Modern Romance"

‘Logan’ Review: Hugh Jackman Puts the ‘R’ in Wolverine

17 February 2017 1:30 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The worldwide success of last year’s “Deadpool” has apparently opened the door for R-rated superhero adventures, and director James Mangold (“The Wolverine,” “3:10 to Yuma”) takes full advantage. Our hero (played once again by Hugh Jackman) drops an F-bomb in his first line of dialogue, and soon thereafter he’s fighting off some would-be car thieves by sinking his claws directly into their skulls. But the screenplay — credited to Mangold, Scott Frank and Michael Green — feels more like the product of the guy who wrote “Green Lantern” (Green) than the one who wrote “Out of Sight” (Frank). It’s a perfectly. »

In a previous life, Steven Soderbergh must have been a thief

17 February 2017 10:45 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Behold the first image from Lucky Logan which is Soderbergh's first post-retirement theatrical feature. It's yet another heist picture from a director who is very fond of stories about professional thieves and or elaborately planned ambitious crimes. See also Haywire, Oceans franchise, Out of Sight.

Pictured are Adam Driver and Channing Tatum in the background (why are they barely featuring a star as big as Chan in the first still?) and platinum blonde Daniel Craig in the foreground. They're doing an elaborate heist during a Nascar race. 

Are you excited to welcome Soderbergh back to the movies?  »

Paris – Liam Neeson, European group Studiocanal and producer Michael Shamberg are teaming for “Hard Powder,” a Rocky Mountains-set action revenge thriller that is likely to prove a hot ticket at next month’s Berlin Film Festival market.

Directed by Hans Petter Moland and written by Frank Baldwin, “Hard Powder” will go into production in March in and around Banff, Alberta, and other locations in Canada.

It stars Neeson as Nels, an upright snowplow driver, awarded a Citizen of the Year prize by his glitzy Colorado ski town, whose life is turned upside down when his son is murdered by a powerful local drug kingpin.

“Fueled by an unwavering drive for vengeance and armed with heavy machinery, this unlikely hero sets out to dismantle the cartel with extreme prejudice, and he’s not stopping until he gets to the top of the food chain,” “Hard Powder’s” synopsis reads.

Scott Derrickson Explains How Dan Harmon’s “Striking Analysis” Helped ‘Doctor Strange’

Out of sight, and thus out of mind, I kinda forgot about “Doctor Strange” entirely until the film popped back up in the conversation yesterday when it earned a deserved Oscar nomination for Best Visual Effects (say what you will about the movie, but the VFX were certainly impressive). But one fact you might have forgotten in the run-up to the release of the film is that “Community” creator Dan Harmon was brought into the film at the very last minute to help out with the script.

‘I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore’ Filmmaker Macon Blair Turns His Talents Behind the Camera — Sundance Springboard

19 January 2017 12:00 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

IndieWire’s Springboard column profiles up-and-comers in the film industry worthy of your attention.

You know Macon Blair’s face. The Virginia native frequently pops up in childhood pal Jeremy Saulnier’s films — including recent offerings like “Blue Ruin” and “Green Room” — and he even has the requisite “Law and Order” credit under his belt (he appeared on “Svu” back in 2008), but these days, Blair is eager for film fans to check out something different: His directorial debut. The new feature, “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore,” will open this year’s Sundance Film Festival as one of its slew of “Day One” offerings, before popping up on Netflix just a few weeks later.

For fans of Blair’s acting in Saulnier’s films and those familiar with his writing work on offerings like Brett Simmons’ horror feature “The Monkey’s Paw,” the new feature should »
