This film will be Washington’s third movie at the end after The Great Debators and Antwone Fisher.

The principal photography will commence this month in Pittsburgh.

During the Paramount Pictures presentation, it showed a few photo slides of Washington and Davis. One of these photos included Washington in a batting stance with a baseball bat.

No ‘Silence,’ But Paramount Still Boasts Prestige Power at CinemaCon

12 April 2016 12:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Las Vegas — The oddest note in Paramount Pictures’ CinemaCon presentation Monday night, kicking off four days of footage reveals and seminars at the annual motion picture exhibitors trade show, was the exclusion of Martin Scorsese’s “Silence.” The Oscar-winning director’s latest film, expected to hit theaters this fall, is a presumed awards hopeful on paper. But it didn’t even warrant a mention. Nevertheless, the studio had plenty of prestige potential to show off.

Beginning with a bit of a surprise, Robert ZemeckisAllied was previewed with a solid assemblage of polished footage featuring Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard. The World War II drama was directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Robert Zemeckis (“Forrest Gump”) from a script by Oscar-nominated writer Steven Knight (“Dirty Pretty Things”). It’s also producer Graham King’s first real play along these lines since his last collaboration with Scorsese, 2011’s “Hugo.” He won the best »

Denzel Washington Lines Up Next Directorial Effort 'Fences'

4 April 2016 1:48 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It was a few years ago that Denzel Washington was talking about bringing August Wilson's celebrated Broadway play, "Fences," to the big screen, hoping to get behind the camera for the feature film adaptation. “The reason I did [the stage show] 'Fences' is that Scott Rudin sent me the script August Wilson wrote - the only one of his plays that he wrote as a screenplay - to act and direct. I really do want to direct [the film version]," he said back in 2013. And now it's coming together. Deadline reports that much of the stage cast will reunite for Washington's "Fences," marking his third directorial effort following “Antwone Fisher” and “The Great Debaters.” Mykelti Williamson, Russell Hornsby, Gabriel Maxson, Jovan Adepo, Saniyya Sidney, and Viola Davis are all on board for the picture that will also see Washington star. The Pulitizer and Tony award winning story follows Troy Maxon, a 53-year old trash collector from. »

Golden Globes Honor Denzel Washington With Cecil B. DeMille Award

5 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s one thing to achieve success; it’s more difficult to sustain it. But the trickiest feat is to use it smartly. On any of those standards, Denzel Washington is off-the-charts successful.

The winner of this year’s Cecil B. DeMille Award has been a star for more than 30 years. He could have played it safe, picking roles that tap into his likability and charisma, and he still would have had a good career. But he has continued to surprise his fans by taking on more complex characters. He has also stretched himself by returning to the stage, and adding on the jobs of producer and director.

But the most impressive thing is that he’s used his clout to help others, both by giving major breaks to some talented (but struggling) artists and by quietly giving time, money and attention to philanthropies.
