First Trailer: "The Scribbler"

5 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The first trailer has arrived for "The Scribbler," the upcoming indie film adaptation of the Image Comics graphic novel.

Katie Cassidy ("Arrow"), Eliza Dushku ("Dollhouse"), Michelle Trachtenberg ("Buffy"), Gina Gershon ("Showgirls"), Garret Dillahunt ("Deadwood"), Michael Imperioli ("The Sopranos"), Billy Campbell ("Helix") and Sasha Grey star in the story of Suki (Cassidy), a young woman confronting her destructive mental illness.

Suki is using the 'Siamese Burn,' an experimental machine designed to eliminate multiple personalities. The closer she gets to being 'cured,' the more she's worried by the thought that she may end up being the last unwanted identity to be erased.

These Are the 30 Best Movies Set in New Jersey

8 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

I live in New Jersey -- go ahead, get the jokes out of the way now. ("Which exit?" Heh heh heh.) After all, for much of its history, Jersey's been the butt of jokes, not just because easy targets like Chris Christie and Snooki live here, but also because of a tradition of unflattering portrayals in movies and TV shows. Lately, however, a more complex picture of my much-maligned state has emerged, thanks in part to movies like those released 10 years ago this week: "Garden State" (on July 28, 2004) and "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle" (July 30, 2004).

The turning point actually began earlier, on TV, with the 1999 debut of "The Sopranos," which found in the Jersey suburbs inhabited by its fictional mobsters a metaphor for nothing less than the state of the American Dream at the turn of the millennium. A decade later, reality shows like "Jersey Shore," "Jerseylicious," and »

Jamie Foxx To Play Mike Tyson In Film Biopic

11 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Having put on the specs and wobbly head for his Oscar-winning turn in 2005′s Ray, Jamie Foxx is set to take on the role of another iconic, real life pop culture icon in a film about Mike Tyson. The guy from The Hangover, remember? Yeah, he used to be a boxer. And one with a…colourful life. Which means that Terence Winter, fellow Academy Award winner and creator of The Sopranos, is a screenwriter perfectly poised to get into the nitty-gritty of Tyson’s ear-biting, prison-serving career.

Foxx joins the as-yet-untitled film written by Winter, who just wrapped up penning Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf Of Wall Street, and produced by Foxx’s manager Rick Yorn. The boxer’s life story has already been told in the 1995 TV movie and 2008 documentary – both called Tyson, rather unimaginatively – which focussed on both his time in and out the ring, not shying away »

Jamie Foxx to star as Mike Tyson in upcoming biopic

13 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having won an Oscar in 2005 for his portrayal of Ray Charles in the superb biopic Ray, Jamie Foxx has set his sights on his next acting challenge as boxer Mike Tyson.

The Wolf of Wall Street and The Sopranos writer Terence Winter and Foxx’s own manager Rick Yorn are supposedly working on the project together, with a view to have Foxx star as the controversial sportsman.

No distributor or studio are involved with the project just yet, however it would seem very likely that the film will get the go-ahead, given Tyson’s whirlwind of a career that includes six years of prison for rape, bankruptcy, drug and drink offences, as well as the infamous incident in 1997 when in a rematch with fellow boxer Evander Holyfield, Tyson big off a chunk of Holyfield’s ear. Should make for a hell of a film.

What are your thoughts on a new Tyson biopic? »

15 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A biopic of Mike Tyson is on the way, with Jamie Foxx set to take on the role of the controversial boxer.

Having won an Oscar for taking on one real-life role, with his portrayal of Ray Charles, Jamie Foxx is being linked to another biopic. This one is of boxer and convicted rapist Mike Tyson, in a project that's being written by Terence Winter (best known for his work penning The Wolf Of Wall Street and lots of episodes of The Sopranos).

Foxx will reportedly take on the role of Tyson in a film being produced by Rick Yorn. No director is yet attached to the project, nor is it clear just which areas of the boxer's life the film will focus on.

Foxx will next be seen in the remake of Annie.

Jamie Foxx To Play Mike Tyson

20 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Mike Tyson has been cheerfully playing himself in recent years in the Hangover and Scary Movie films, Rocky Balboa and Grudge Match. But in a newly developing biopic, Jamie Foxx is set to take on the mantle of the controversial former heavyweight champion of the world. Foxx's manager Rick Yorn is currently putting the as-yet untitled project together.Terence Winter (The Wolf Of Wall Street, Boardwalk Empire, The Sopranos) is writing the screenplay, although details of his particular angle of approach are not yet known.Tyson's life is a gift for any screenwriter. His rise as a boxer was stratospheric: he won numerous prestigious belts by the time he was 20; won his first 19 professional bouts by knockout, 12 of them in the first round; and was Undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the World by the time he was 21. He held on to the title from 1987 until 1990.Famously though, there was a dark side, »

Jamie Foxx to play Mike Tyson in Terence Winter biopic

30 July 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Variety reported Wednesday that Terence Winter, writer and producer behind shows like Boardwalk Empire and The Sopranos, is throwing his proverbial hat into the literal boxing ring by writing a biopic on boxer Mike Tyson.

And a source told Variety that Tyson would be portrayed by none other than Jamie Foxx. The film is untitled as of yet.

Tyson’s been making his own comeback story in the cultural scene for the last few years, including his infamous cameo in The Hangover, the eponymous documentary Tyson by James Toback in 2008, the release of his one-man Broadway show Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth and most recently of all, a bizarre turn as a cartoon detective on the upcoming TV show Mike Tyson Mysteries.

That still leaves plenty of territory for Winter to mine in his screenplay, be it his seedy complications with the law, his title fights with Lennox Lewis or Evander Holyfield »

Jamie Foxx Playing Mike Tyson for the Writer of The Wolf Of Wall Street

30 July 2014 1:17 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

This could work.  This could really, really work.  Jamie Foxx is now attached to play Mike Tyson in an as-yet Untitled Mike Tyson Movie.  Equally good news?  Terence Winter is writing the project.  Even if you’re not familiar with Winter’s HBO work on The Sopranos or Boardwalk Empire, you’ve surely seen The Wolf of Wall Street by now.  Even if this movie follows the standard, tired bio-pic formula can you imagine the panaché they could pull this off with?  Winter wrote the hell out of Wolf of Wall Street.  It’s true that Tyson is in some ways even more reprehensible than Jordan Belfort, but that doesn’t mean there’s not an interesting story there. There isn’t a director yet, but I imagine it won’t be too hard to find one with this combo.  Hopefully they don’t sanitize the less than savory aspects of Tyson’s life but, »

Emmy Guest Star Nominees Prove Integral to Storytelling

25 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A long time ago in another TV galaxy — we’re talking eight, even 10 years ago — the “guest star” appearance was a pretty well-defined event; the famous Hollywood actor or Broadway actress would turn up on an episode of a hit show, interact briefly with the well-oiled cast, toss off a few bon-mots, and depart, never to be seen again.

That’s all changed. Today, series creators, writers and showrunners carefully craft stories and arcs for “guest” spots, as evidenced by such varied turns as Jane Fonda’s in HBO’s “The Newsroom,” Nathan Lane’s in “Modern Family,” Joe Morton’s in “Scandal,” Diana Rigg’s in HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” Beau Bridges in Showtime’s “Master of Sex,” Bob Newhart’s in CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory,” and Paul Giamatti’s in PBS’ “Downton Abbey,” all Emmy nominees.

For Lane, who just earned his third nomination on ABC »

How to watch TV like a world leader

24 July 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Does the Queen watch Game of Thrones? No. But Cameron bases policy on crime dramas and Biden likes Honey Boo Boo

All hail the golden age of television, in which complex series like The Sopranos and The Wire have been crowned (by some) as the new novels, and the proliferation of DVRs and instant streaming services means we can watch whatever we want, whenever we want. TV is enjoying an unprecedented intellectual moment even our presidents, prime ministers and monarchs cant help but admit they tune in.

Naming your favorite TV shows is a deeply personal revelation, an act that can be both politically and culturally charged even if youre not naming them on a global stage. So heres how more than a dozen world leaders have answered that question. Which would you rather share a sofa and a bag of popcorn with?

Appreciating the relaxed genius of the late James Garner

20 July 2014 1:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There have arguably been bigger stars in television history than the late James Garner, but none who ever made it look quite so easy. Garner, who reportedly died in his home on Saturday at the age of 86, first hit it big in 1957 with "Maverick," a comical Western in which he played Bret Maverick, a Wild West cardsharp who was as quick on the draw as he was with a quip. At a time when TV was dominated by Westerns — and very solemn ones, at that — Garner was happy to play the same material lighter, to occasionally be the clown or the guy who gets punched in the face, and yet always made it clear  that Maverick could easily kill you if he wanted to — it just wasn't his preferred way of doing things. Garner left Maverick after only a few seasons (and had spent much of that time alternating episodes »

Jamie-Lynn Sigler’s Ex-Husband Charged in Sopranos Style Scam

Jamie-Lynn Sigler played a mobster’s daughter on the hit HBO series “The Sopranos,” but her ex-husband, Abraxas Discala, allegedly ran a real-life Sopranos-style scam, before the feds busted him. Nothing was sophisticated about the alleged scam. It was a simple mob-style pump-and-dump scheme, similar to one run by Jordon Belfort, who was featured in the Martin Scorsese film “Wolf of Wall Street.” ...Read More »

Watch: Massive 4 1/2 Hour Talk With 'Boardwalk Empire' & 'The Sopranos' Writer Terence Winter

15 July 2014 2:06 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We're run featurettes, behind-the-scenes videos and making of documentaries here at The Playlist, but we'd wager there's been nothing quite like what you're about to watch below. Four and a half fucking hours, undiluted, with Terence Winter, the writer behind "Boardwalk Empire," "The Sopranos," "The Wolf Of Wall Street" and much, much more.  Recorded last year by Archive of American Television, the lengthy talk finds Winter going very, very deep on his entire life and career. The conversation covers his school days, stand-up comedy dreams (really), early writing gigs (on stuff like "The Cosby Mysteries" and "Xena: Warrior Princess"), and of course, lots and lots about "The Sopranos" and "Boardwalk Empire." This is a guy whose career has taken him from specs for "Doogie Howser, M.D." to becoming a collaborator with Martin Scorsese. Epic indeed. Go to the bathroom first and watch below. »

Universal Calls MGM’s James Bond Lawsuit ‘Extraordinary and Needless’

11 July 2014 6:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal is again slamming MGM and James Bond producer Danjaq Prods.’s copyright infringement lawsuit over U’s “Section 6″ project, calling the litigation “extraordinary and needless.”

With a court hearing looming on July 28 on their effort dismiss the MGM-Danjaq case, Universal and screenwriter Aaron Berg, the author of the “Section 6″ script, challenge the claim that the mere acquisition and copying of the script as part of the development process constitutes infringement and a ripoff of the 007 franchise.

“Since the movie may never be made and, if it is, the screenplay will be very different from the existing one about which plaintiffs complain, there is no need to use a significant amount of judicial and legal resources at this point,” Universal said in a filing with the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles.

MGM and Danjaq filed suit in April, claiming that the “Section 6″ script, set around »
