Every Celebrity Son-Turned-Model Was on This Photoshoot
Kylie Jenner once sagely informed us that 2016 would be the year of “realizing stuff.” And if there’s one thing we’ve realized beyond a shadow of a doubt over the course of the past 10 months, it’s that the fastest way to land a major ad campaign is to be the son or daughter of a famous personality. Need further evidence? Dolce & Gabbana tapped celebrity offspring for their spring/summer fashion show front row — and now they’ll be fronting the brand’s new campaign.

By now, you’ve probably already seen Zendaya salsa down a cobblestone street on behalf of the brand,

Actor Woods Multi-Million Dollar Lawsuit Targets Twitter Users: Slander Case or Attack on Freedom of Speech Online?

James Woods in 'Videodrome.' James Woods in $10 million Twitter lawsuit feud: Crassly vocal right-wing actor goes after two crassly vocal users who attacked him In a letter dated Aug. 21, '15, Twitter attorney Ryan Mrazik ridiculed Surf's Up and Scary Movie 2 actor James Woods, while also highlighting the potentially dangerous precedent of a $10 million lawsuit the 68-year-old entertainer filed against a Twitter user last July. The lawsuit was followed by a subpoena demanding that the social media giant reveal the user's identity and that of another user with whom Woods has been embroiled in the (generally) no-holds-barred Twitterverse. In case you're unfamiliar with the name, these days the two-time Oscar-nominated Woods is best known for a supporting role as a right-wing sociopath in Roland Emmerich's thriller White House Down, starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx (as a liberal-minded U.S. president despised by Woods' character), and for his relentless,

How Lena Dunham is Launching an Empire for Comedic Women

How Lena Dunham is Launching an Empire for Comedic Women
Lena Dunham needs to change her outfit. On a recent Saturday afternoon, the star and executive producer of “Girls” slips out of a hip pantsuit from her Variety cover shoot, and dons a comfortable jacket. The denim coat is as colorful as Dunham herself, the back festooned with ’90s pop-culture icons (a Furby) and other whimsical objects, like a pair of women’s underwear with an anarchist punk saying, “No Masters,” in pink lettering. “I think it’s my best fashion garment,” she says, confiding that she purchased it from one of her Instagram followers. “You may notice it’s covered in aggressive female symbols. My boyfriend tried to steal it, and I was like, ‘Back off!’ ”

Dunham, 28, isn’t just the face of “Girls,” she’s also an out-and-proud feminist — a trait passed down from her mother, photographer Laurie Simmons — and a practitioner of “Lean In,” the Sheryl Sandberg

Miroslav Ondricek, Oscar-Nominated Czech Cinematographer, Dies at 80
Miroslav Ondricek, a Czech cinematographer who worked frequently with director Milos Forman and was nominated twice for Academy Awards, has died, according to several reports. He was 80.

Ondricek’s son David, who is also a filmmaker, announced the death to Czech television, though no cause was given.

Ondricek worked on more than 40 films in his career, about a dozen of which were shot in the U.S. He is perhaps best known for his work with friend Forman.

The two worked together on “Ragtime” and “Amadeus,” both garnering Oscar nominations for Ondricek for his cinematography. Ondricek won a BAFTA in 1984 for “Amadeus.” Ondricek and Forman, who currently lives in New York, also worked together on “Fireman’s Ball” early in Forman’s career and “Hair.”

Ondricek stayed busy throughout the ’90s, working with U.S. director Penny Marshall on 1990’s “Awakenings,” starring Robert De Niro and Robin Williams, and 1992 comedy “A League of Their Own,

Penny Marshall Returns to Directing with Baseball Biopic

Penny Marshall Returns to Directing with Baseball Biopic
Penny Marshall is set to return to the director's chair for the first time since 2001's Riding in Cars With Boys with a biopic that follows the life of baseball pioneer Effa Manley, who became the first woman ever to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Effa Manley rose through the ranks of the Negro Leagues in the 1930s and 1940s as the co-owner and business manager of the Newark Eagles, which went on to win the Negro World Series in 1946. She became the sole owner of the team after her husband and co-owner Abe Manley died in 1948.

Penny Marshall is obviously no stranger to baseball movies, directing the 1992 classic A League of Their Own, which followed the struggle to establish the first women's professional baseball league during World War II. Penny Marshall will also serve as executive producer of Effa, alongside screenwriter Byron Motley. Here's what the

Why We Are Excited About Penny Marshall’s Return to Filmmaking

Like her fellow Happy Days veteran-turned-director Ron Howard, Penny Marshall makes good but not exceptional movies. Unlike Howard, she hasn’t made very many, her last at the helm being Riding in Cars With Boys, which came out 13 years ago. In the meantime, she’s done some television, behind and in front of the camera, and a decade back she produced a few films, including Howard’s Cinderella Man. Now she’s ready to return to movie directing with the biopic Effa, about baseball Hall of Famer Effa Manley, and this is something we’re pretty excited about. For those who don’t know of Manley (and I admit I didn’t before hearing of the project), she was the first woman inducted into that honorable shrine to sports greats and she did so by being the co-owner and business manager of the Negro league team the Newark Eagles in the 1930s and 1940s.

Penny Marshall Returning to Directing with the Baseball Biopic 'Effa'

It's been 13 years since actress turned filmmaker Penny Marshall got behind the camera for Riding in Cars with Boys starring Drew Barrymore, but now she's poised to make a return to directing. Deadline reports Marshall is set to direct Effa, a biopic about Effa Manley, the first woman inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. The film will follow the woman who rose in the ranks of the Negro National League in the 1930s and ’40s as a co-owner and business manager of the Newark Eagles, a team that would go on to win the 1946 Negro World Series. Sounds like it would make a solid double feature to go with last year's 42. Here's what Marshall says about the story of Effa: “The story is a fascinating tale of a woman who broke through so many barriers and accomplished so much for the players and the game, during a time

Penny Marshall Back To Directing With Effa Manley Baseball Biopic

After more than a decade away from directing, Penny Marshall will return to helm sports-themed biopic, Effa. Per Deadline, the movie intends to tell the true story of Effa Manley, the pioneering baseball executive who was the first-ever female inducted into the Baseball Hall Of Fame.

Much like Marshall’s 1992 sports dramedy, A League Of Their Own, based around the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League from the World War II era, this movie will explore similar themes. Effa will zoom in on the specifics of Manley, an African American woman who rose through the ranks during the 1930s and 40s as the co-owner and business manager of World Series-winners, the Newark Eagles. “The story is a fascinating tale of a woman who broke through so many barriers and accomplished so much for the players and the game, during a time when the face of baseball changed forever,” said Marshall of the film.

Effa, which is gearing up to shoot in Savannah, Georgia early next year, will be financed and produced by Studioplex City LLC as the first in a two-picture deal the FONU2 subsidiary has signed with Marshall.

Why Lifetime’s Brittany Murphy Movie Is a Disgrace To Her Legacy

[Photo Credit: Getty Images]

By Christopher Rosa

Lifetime aired its buzzed-about biopic on the late Brittany Murphy — aptly titled The Brittany Murphy Story — Saturday night. Controversy reached a fever pitch last week when Murphy’s father Angelo Bertolotti told Examiner he is “outraged” by the “hideous, unauthorized, and completely untrue” film. However, after watching the movie, he isn’t too far off-base.

The Brittany Murphy Story is bad, and that’s an understatement. The film is plagued by poor acting (yes, even for Lifetime), choppy time jumps, and tonal inconsistencies. If we’re to believe Lifetime, Murphy (played by Amanda Fuller) was a too-trusting, insecure victim to paparazzi and shady con-artists — namely, her husband Simon Monjack, who died five months after Murphy in the same room from the same cause. The film is more exploitative than exploratory. Is any of this true? We might never know, but fans certainly shouldn’t be happy about it.
