Disney Offered Kevin Hart Aladdin Genie Role Before Will Smith

21 April 2017 3:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney is currently in the process of casting for their live-action remake of Aladdin and things are already pretty interesting. Earlier this week it was revealed that Suicide Squad star Will Smith is in negotiations to take on the role of the Genie in the upcoming remake, but it turns out he wasn't the first actor who Disney had their eye on. It has now been revealed that Kevin Hart was approached by the Mouse House for the part before Will Smith came into the picture.

The news comes from Variety reporter Justin Kroll on Twitter and, according to him, it looks like the Central Intelligence star and big-time comedian was the studio's first choice to play the Genie in this new version of Aladdin. He tagged fellow reporters Jeff Sneider and Simon Thompson in the tweet, who suggested Kevin Hart for the part of Iago, Jaffar's bird, in the movie. »

Will Smith Circling Genie Role in Disney’s Live-Action Aladdin

20 April 2017 5:40 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Will Smith might end up working his magic for Disney after all.

Having recently flirted with but never committed to starring in the studio’s live-action Dumbo movie, Smith is now in early talks to play the Genie in Disney’s live-action Aladdin re-imagining, EW has confirmed.

As Genie, Smith would follow in the footsteps of the late Robin Williams, whose freewheeling, side-splitting performance in the original 1992 animated film helped propel it to box office success and critical acclaim.

Guy Ritchie (Snatch, Sherlock Holmes) is directing the new Aladdin movie, working from a script by John August (Big Fish). The »

Kirsten Howard Apr 20, 2017

Crackle's most-watched original drama lands a second season, with Harry Potter's Rupert Grint set to return...

Only very loosely based on Guy Ritchie's 2000 movie of the same name, the Snatch TV series has been a hit for Sony streaming service Crackle, and they've decided to give it a second season.

"Rupert, Luke [Pasqualino] and the rest of the cast have created memorable characters who truly resonated with our viewers," Crackle's manager Eric Berger said, "and we look forward to following their adventures in season 2 of Snatch."

Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint plays Charlie Cavendish in the organised crime caper, and it's the second piece of good news he's has this month, after his other show Sick Note was renewed earlier in April for a second season over at Sky Atlantic, before the first has even started airing. »

Guerrilla: a complicated and timely UK political drama

12 April 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Caroline Preece Apr 13, 2017

12 Years A Slave's John Ridley has a new UK drama out on Sky Atlantic today. Here's what we learned at the launch...

Politically charged shows hoping to make an impact on audiences are in a uniquely difficult position. Be too connected to current events and face the inevitable backlash and skittish executives, but separate too far from the real world struggles of people across the world and face the chance of the story not feeling relevant to the wider public.

Myth Becomes Legend In New Character Poster For King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword

7 April 2017 5:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Not only is Charlie Hunnam’s would-be leader the core character of Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword, but he’s also been described as a “little bit of a motherfucker,” which ought to dovetail quite nicely with the director’s modus operandi.

Whether it’s Brad Pitt boxing to Oasis classic “Fucking in the Bushes” at the tail-end of Snatch or Robert Downey Jr.’s Sherlock Holmes solving crimes at the eleventh hour, Ritchie has developed a knack for characters that are, for want of a better phrase, a little rough around the edges. But Hunnam’s hero in the making isn’t the only iconic figure due to appear in Legend of the Sword, as there’s also Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey as Guinevere. Those familiar with the King Arthur lore will know that Guinevere is a key figure in the kingdom of Camelot, and goes on »

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword Poster Teases A Hero In The Making

4 April 2017 8:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Guy Ritchie is a filmmaker with a very particular, very stylish modus operandi. From Snatch to Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels to his surprisingly solid reboot of The Man From U.N.C.L.E., the British director has amassed a truly unique body of work that will soon carve out room for a medieval reimagining by the name of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

Much like Sherlock Holmes before it, Guy Ritchie is resurrecting a historical figure from English history in a way that only Ritchie could – gritty, fantastical and a little rough around the edges. As a matter of fact, former Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam – the man elected to pull Excalibur from the stone – described his title hero as a “bit of a motherfucker” during Warner Bros’ recent panel at CinemaCon, which ought to give you an inkling of what to expect when the lights go down on May 12th. »

Penthouse Founder Bob Guccione’s Life Being Turned Into TV Series (Exclusive)

4 April 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Penthouse founder Bob Guccione’s rise to the top of the media landscape and fall into financial ruin will be the subject of a new television series, Variety has learned.

Jerrick Media and Maven Pictures are teaming up on the project and are currently interviewing writers. The filmmakers say they are interested in providing a deeper understanding of Guccione, who they maintain was much more than just a pornographer.

Bob Guccione was more of an intellectual,” said Rick Schwartz, co-founder of Jerrick. “He was a complicated guy.”

Schwartz says that Guccione’s Upper East Side mansion wasn’t a Big Apple equivalent of the Playboy mansion. Instead of hedonistic parties, Guccione would host salons with the likes of astronomer and author Carl Sagan or attorney Alan Dershowitz. In addition to producing Penthouse, Guccione invested in cold fusion, backed a science and science-fiction magazine entitled Omni, and released “Caligula,” a notorious epic that blended erotica, history »

Final Trailer For King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword

2 April 2017 5:38 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Guy Ritchies’ fantastical, action heavy take on Arthurian legend, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, is almost upon us, and one final trailer that may tell us more about the story than we would have wanted. Ritchie has well and truly shirked off his Lock Stock/Snatch roots in the last few years, settling on a more polished, big budget look to his movies (though he does retain a slight grittiness compared to other blockbusters) and this is definitely stylish, chock full of slow-mo and massive battles. I am looking forward to this, but in a Summer full of highly anticipated blockbusters (including Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and War for the Planet of the Apes), will his own vision of the well known legend find an audience? Time will tell. Released: May 12th Synopsis: Acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy »

How Netflix, Amazon and Hulu are transforming the TV business

30 March 2017 3:14 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The scripted drama boom is changing the entire TV industry. But is it a change for the better?

“It’s an exciting time,” is a refrain now most commonly uttered by those in the business of making content for the Us streaming services.

Not only have Netflix, Amazon and co fuelled a surge in the volume of scripted content, subscription video on demand services (SVoDs) are also doing their bit, as they expand and evolve, to change the business and art of high-end television.

“Partly it’s driven by the SVoDs, partly it’s driven by the retrenching of the feature film business,” says Ted Miller, co-head of the television department at Creative Artists Agency (CAA), whose client Matthew Weiner is among the high-profile writer-producers working on streaming series.

“You have artists who want to tell great stories and if those stories are not being done in the movie business they are being done now »

‘Shots Fired’ Review: Fox’s Ferguson-Inspired Miniseries is Messy but Ambitious

22 March 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Given the success of  ABC’s “American Crime” and FX’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” it’s unsurprising that there’s another limited series about American race relations. However, not only is “Shots Fired” engaging and (mostly) well-executed, it also does a great job of making itself distinct from its predecessors, and stands out for the right reasons.

Shots Fired” opens on Deputy Joshua Beck (Tristan Mack Wilds), a scared cop pointing his gun at a body on the pavement. Blood pours from the unmoving victim as people pour out of their homes to get a better look; more officers arrive to section off the area. Phones come out and start recording. A cop new to the scene gets a little too rough with an onlooker. Tensions run high.

First Look Poster: Hollywood Film ‘The Black Prince’

20 March 2017 9:24 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

The first look poster of the historic film biopic on the poignant life story of the last King of Punjab – Maharajah Duleep Singh – also known as The Black Prince, has created a wave of excitement, as it promises a spectacular storyline into the life and legacy of the Maharajah in exile in the UK.

Produced by Brillstein Entertainment (Academy Award winning film 12 Years A Slave), The Black Prince, a period drama written and directed by Hollywood filmmaker Kavi Raz and filmed widely across the UK and India, carefully captures the tragic, yet fascinating true story and legacy of Maharajah Duleep Singh, providing a visual narrative of one of India’s most noble kings, and his fragile relationship with, Queen Victoria, who was Godmother to his children.

Acclaimed singer-poet Satinder Sartaaj marks his acting debut in The Black Prince, essaying the character of Maharajah Duleep Singh. He is joined by an »

This weekend sees the release of Beauty and the Beast, The Walt Disney Company’s latest live-action adaptation of their animated classic, just one in a long line of movies with new versions planned.

Sean Bailey, the president of Motion Picture Production at Walt Disney Studios, has updated us with news on the upcoming live action Mulan and Aladdin films in a recent interview with Vulture.

First up is Aladdin, which will be brought to the screen by Lock Stock and Two Smokin’ Barrels and Snatch helmer Guy Ritchie. The film is rumoured to be going before the cameras later this year. Here’s what Bailey had to say:

“Guy became interested in doing a Disney movie and we talked a lot about it. When we talked about Aladdin, he said, ‘My stories are really about street hustlers. That’s what I know how to do. And Aladdin is a »

Amazon Pilot Reviews: All the 2017 Entries, Ranked Worst to Best

17 March 2017 1:54 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Amazon released five new pilots on Friday, and it’s up to viewers to determine which ones get picked up. “The Legend of Master Legend,” “Budding Prospects,” “The New V.I.P.’s,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “Oasis” make up the 2017 Amazon pilot season. Some are good, some are bad, but the power lies with all of us to determine which are worthy of a full season order. Read our reviews below to get a little insight into each offering, and watch the episodes for yourself right here.

The Legend of Master Legend

John Hawkes can’t catch a break. When he nabbed the lead in Charlie Kaufman’s FX pilot — Charlie Kaufman — it didn’t get picked up. He landed an Oscar nomination for “The Sessions,” but his follow-ups have meant diddly-squat comparatively. Sure, he stole a few scenes in “Lincoln” and got to take part in Amy Schumer’s amazing sketch, »

‘Marvel’s Iron Fist’ Review: Season 1 Lacks Punch, Proves Incredibly Skippable

17 March 2017 9:29 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The problem with “Iron Fist” can be identified right from the very first moments — specifically in how its opening credits sequence compares to the other series in the Netflix/Marvel universe. “Daredevil’s” eerie viscous drippings reveal the various conflicting forces in Matt Murdock’s life — justice versus action. “Jessica Jones” is a moody stroll through Jessica’s New York, haunted by her demons. And the landmarks of Harlem ripple across “Luke Cage’s” body as he delivers a hell of a punch.

Here’s what happens in the “Iron Fist” opening sequence: A dude does kung fu. It’s mystical kung fu, clearly, and he starts off doing the kung fu in a forested area before eventually ending up in a city. But it’s a dude doing kung fu. And over the course of Season 1, that ends up feeling like all the show has to say.

‘Snatch’ Review: One Punch From Brad Pitt Had More Power Than Crackle’s New TV Show

16 March 2017 3:11 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It’s been 16 years since Guy Ritchie’s London crime story, “Snatch,” first debuted in the U.S., and, while the black comedy pulled in a decent sum, its primary accomplishment was of a cult fandom (and earning Guy Ritchie a shot at the big time). With that in mind, I don’t feel too bad for only remembering a few key moments from a film built on a sharp wit and distinct characters:

Alan Ford’s thick, creepy glasses; Dennis Farina’s crass American foil to all those classy Brits; Jason Statham proving he can do more than just beat the hell out of his co-stars; the tragic fate of Benicio del Toro’s Franky Four Fingers; and, of course, the sole iconic element of Ritchie’s first major studio film (aside from ultra slo-mo fight scenes): Brad Pitt’s gibberish-spouting gypsy boxer with a devastating right hook, »
