What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

14 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

'Boardwalk Empire' Showrunner Terence Winter Preps Final Season

30 September 2014 12:13 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Over the succeeding six years, Winter developed both, although "Boardwalk Empire" came to fruition far ahead of "The Wolf of Wall Street," which earned him his first Oscar nomination, for Adapted Screenplay, one of five nods for the movie.  Now Winter has executive produced the final Season 5 of "Boardwalk Empire." We spoke on the phone. Anne Thompson: You cut your teeth writing for David Chase on the landmark HBO series "The Sopranos"?  Terence Winter: Through the entire run. David, he's brilliant and funny. He and I clicked. We have the same sense of humor. We're both East Coast guys. We find a lot of the same things funny. We're still dear friends, he's so smart. David is a good writer: getting in the writers room with him, to learn and watch him and get notes from him, my writing exponentially got better over a two to three year period. »

Terence Winter Touts a Homefield Advantage for ‘Boardwalk Empire’

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

Terence Winter came of age in New York City during the bad old days of the 1970s and early 1980s.

The “Boardwalk Empire” creator/showrunner remembers a time when areas of Manhattan such as the Upper East Side and Meatpacking District were a “no-man’s land.” By the time he left for Los Angeles to take a flier at being a TV and film writer, he was convinced that New York City would never be revitalized to the degree it is today.

He’s glad to have been wrong. Now he’s happily raising his two young children in Gotham with his wife, “Dallas Buyers Club” producer Rachel Winter.

New York City is a Key Plank for ‘Boardwalk Empire’s’ Attention to Detail

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

The Bronx County Courthouse, with its neoclassical majesty, needs no dressing up to double for 1930s Chicago.

On a muggy August afternoon, the “Boardwalk Empire” team makes the most of the granite-and-limestone steps leading into the courthouse, converting it into the setting for a scene featuring Al Capone turning himself in to face the tax evasion charges that ultimately landed him in Alcatraz. Shot from the south side, all the location needs to evoke 1931 is an assortment of period cars, appropriately attired extras and a few window air conditioner units removed via CGI from an apartment building in the deep background.

Director Tim Van Patten and crew are set up in a pop-up tent off to the side. Van Patten scrutinizes his monitor as they shoot take after take of “Boardwalk’s” Al Capone, actor Stephen Graham, swaggering up the steps while being mobbed by reporters and onlookers. (This Al »

Terence Winter and the ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Team on the Mob Men’s Last Call

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

When it debuted, “Boardwalk Empire” looked like the answer to HBO’s prayers.

Another mob series with a glittering pedigree, including Martin Scorsese, who practically defined post-“The Godfather” crime movies; and “The Sopranos” alums Terence Winter and Steve Buscemi. A barrel full of Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe award quickly followed.

Yet despite early awards heat and critical accolades, the pay-tv paean to Atlantic City didn’t fully cash in. What HBO programming president Michael Lombardo dubbed “one of the most superb ensemble casts of any television show I can think of” nabbed eight Emmys its freshman year (one short of “The West Wing’s” record), but lost best drama to “Mad Men,” produced by Winter’s former “Sopranos” colleague Matthew Weiner.

“Boardwalk” has remained a critical favorite. Yet with the crush of prestigious new programs in the ensuing years, the show slipped off the best-series ballot the past two seasons. »

Desperate Housewives Emmy-Nominated Actress Lost Her Fortune Following Stock-Market Crash

22 September 2014 5:15 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Polly Bergen: 'Desperate Housewives' Emmy nominee; winner for 'The Helen Morgan Story' (photo: Felicity Huffman, Doug Savant, and Polly Bergen in 'Desperate Housewives') (See previous article: "Polly Bergen: Actress on Richard Nixon 'Enemies List'.") Polly Bergen began her lengthy — and to some extent prestigious — television career in 1950, making sporadic appearances in anthology series. She won an Emmy for Best Actress in a Single Performance – Lead or Supporting — beating Julie Andrews, Helen Hayes, Teresa Wright, and Piper Laurie — for playing troubled torch singer Helen Morgan (Show Boat) in the 1957 Playhouse 90 episode "The Helen Morgan Story," featuring veteran Sylvia Sidney as Morgan's mother. Curiously, Bergen's retelling of Helen Morgan's story was broadcast the same year that Ann Blyth starred in Michael Curtiz's Morgan biopic. Also titled The Helen Morgan Story, the film focused on the relationship between the singer and a »

Boardwalk Empire fails to Strike Back

21 September 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb….

With the return of Boardwalk Empire in the last fortnight, it is worth reminding ourselves that it was ultimately cancelled. Ryan Leas writes for The Concourse:

“It’s something of an inglorious exit—a truncated eight-episode run, a rushed time jump from 1924 to 1931 … Boardwalk Empire’s extravagant sets and period details made it expensive to maintain, and there’s no way to argue that HBO was getting the best possible return on that investment … Boardwalk’s de facto cancellation inspired little grief, and little surprise.”

Read the full article here.

Losing The Sopranos in 2007 was graceful and poetic. The final minute alone has been the subject of intense debate regarding the consequence of Tony’s actions. But from The Sopranos spawned two top-notch television series: Boardwalk Empire and Mad Men. The former led by Sopranos-producer Terence Winter and the latter by writer Matthew Weiner. »

Kennedy in the television hit series The Sopranos — died from "natural causes" on September 20, 2014, at her home in Southbury, Connecticut. The 84-year-old Bergen, a heavy smoker for five decades, had been suffering from emphysema and other ailments since the 1990s. "Most people think I was born in a rich Long Island family," she told The Washington Post in 1988, but Polly Bergen was actually born Nellie Paulina Burgin on July 14, 1930, to an impoverished family in Knoxville, Tennessee. Her father was an illiterate construction worker while her mother got only as far as the third grade. The family »

Tom Sizemore Launches Crowdfunding Campaign For Detroit-Set Thriller He’ll Star In & Produce

18 September 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Tom Sizemore has taken to crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to raise funds for his passion project An Honest Thief, a noir-ish thriller that the Heat and Saving Private Ryan actor is putting together as a starring vehicle. It’s his first film as a producer and a step toward rebuilding his up-and-down career following a public relapse in January, but Sizemore says he has refocused his sights on sobriety and is optimistic. “I want to get back,” he said over the phone Wednesday. “I want to make something I look forward to.”

An Honest Thief is written by the actor’s younger brother Aaron Sizemore and tracks three outcasts who plot to steal a prized baseball card collection from a local pawnbroker.

Drea de Matteo on Sons of Anarchy, Missing Adriana, and Why She’d Do Joey Again

16 September 2014 8:25 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Drea de Matteo is a little sad. She’s finally become a regular cast member on Sons of Anarchy as Wendy, Jax’s ex-junkie baby mama, and the show is riding off the air at the end of its current seventh season. “Now that I’m in there, I want to keep going!” de Matteo says. At least she’s getting lots of juicy scenes as she helps Jax (Charlie Hunnam) raise their son, Abel, as well as Thomas, his infant boy with now-dead old lady Tara (Maggie Siff). The Queens, New York, native talked to Vulture about Wendy’s life expectancy, The Sopranos’ still-controversial finale, and why she’s “too much of a whore for network TV!”Wendy busted herself out of rehab after 9 of 90 days. Is it possible she’s cleaned up her act or will this turn out to be a bad decision?Well, I don’t know. »

Examining 'American Beauty' at 15: A masterpiece, or a farce?

15 September 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Fifteen years ago this week, Sam Mendes’ film American Beauty arrived in U.S. theaters. In Florida, a film critic named Jay Boyar reviewed Mendes’ first full-length feature for the Orlando Sentinel—and he wrote that after seeing it, he “decided that the little satirical film would come and go without much fuss.”

However: “In the weeks since I saw the film, it has opened in a few places to ridiculously generous reviews,” Boyar mused. “Entertainment Weekly called it ‘bracing in its intensity’ and the New York Times praised its ‘eloquent flights of fancy.’ I’m sorry to say that »

"No Good Deed" Tops Weekend Box-Office

14 September 2014 5:12 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Whenever a major tentpole film dominates the box-office for several weeks, it's usually an unexpected and over performing smaller film aiming at a very different market that knocks the weakening giant off its perch.

It happened again this weekend as the Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson-led, black female audience-targeted thriller "No Good Deed" kicked Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" out of the top slot. 'Deed', costing just $13 million to make, nearly doubled its production budget with a $24.5 million haul over three days.

Family film "Dolphin Tale 2" came in second with $16.6 million, behind the $19.2 million opening of the original back in 2011 though that film had a 3D bump. The news wasn't all bad for 'Guardians' either as it became the first film of 2014 to cross the $300 million mark at the domestic box-office. It came in third with $8 million, and worldwide it also passed the $600 million mark this weekend. »
