Brad Grey in Talks to Leave as Paramount Pictures Chairman

17 February 2017 1:56 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Updated: Paramount Pictures chairman and CEO Brad Grey is in talks with his bosses at Viacom to step aside and take on a new role with the company, a long-rumored shift that would come after five years of dismal results at the film studio, two sources confirmed Friday.

Grey’s possible departure comes after not only a long series of box office flops, far outnumbering hits, but also upheaval in the top executive ranks. Though a replacement has not yet been chosen, several sources said that it is possible the job will go, at least on a temporary basis, to Amy Powell, Paramount’s president of television and digital entertainment.

The talks between Grey and Viacom’s leadership, including CEO Bob Bakish, were continuing into the afternoon Friday and might not be resolved until Monday or Tuesday, according to one of the sources.

Grey, a former talent manager, has had a largely tumultuous run. »

Grey's Anatomy Recap: Wail to the Chief

16 February 2017 6:04 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Any other time, any other way that Grey’s Anatomy’s April could have been made interim chief of general surgery would have been fine. Fine and dandy, even. But, since it happened when she was in the middle of a revolt on Richard’s behalf against Eliza — and the temporary promotion came at the expense of coconspirator Meredith — it was neither fine nor dandy. In fact, it resulted in Kepner spending most of “It Only Gets Much Worse” wishing that it really was lonely at the top, because she was surrounded by colleagues who mostly were hopping mad at her. »

Diego Luna is set to star in the Scarface reboot, but director Antoine Fuqua is out

31 January 2017 5:13 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

The latest remake of Scarface has been on the cards for about five years. Martin Bregman, one of the producers of the classic 1983 Al Pacino film, has been working with Universal to develop a new interpretation of the legend and today it was announced that Rogue One’s Diego Luna has been cast in the lead role.

The actor will next be seen in another re-make-quel-boot, Niels Arden Oplev’s new version of Flatliners with Nina Dobrev, Kiefer Sutherland and Ellen Page. Universal’s new Scarface film should propel Luna to a new, wider audience however there’s a good chance Antoine Fuqua won’t be directing him. Variety report that plans to move ahead with a sequel for the 2014 film The Equalizer are moving ahead very quickly, and the desire for a quick sequel has caused conflict in the scheduling.

Later this week, Lrm will be attending this year’s Sundance Film Festival. While the festival tends to be a mixed bag of indie films, some will be picked up for distribution by studios and turned into mainstream hits, others will flounder and be lucky to get a VOD release.

Last year alone, Sundance held the premieres for The Birth of a Nation, Manchester by the Sea, Captain Fantastic, Love and Friendship, The Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Sing Street and many more films, some that appeared on The Weekend Warrior’s year-end Top 25. One or two of those might even receive Oscar nominations when they’re announced next week on January 24.
