Remember the little boy who starred opposite Johnny Depp in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? It's been 10 years since Tim Burton's Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory remake hit theaters, but former child star Freddie Highmore is all grown up now! Highmore, who you might also remember from 2004's Finding Neverland and 2007's August Rush, is 23, and as you can see from the cover of Attitude magazine's Summer 2015 issue, he's definitely not a little boy anymore!

Martin Scorsese's scabrous showbiz satire "The King of Comedy" is one of the director's oft-unsung masterworks, even if it took a box office hit in 1982. Now, it is getting the Broadway musical treatment. Composer and lyricist Stephen Trask (“Hedwig & The Angry Inch”) and Chris D’Arienzo, book writer of the Tony-nominated jukebox musical “Rock of Ages" (which later became the 2012 film flop) will pen this stage version of the cult classic about a desperate comedian who stalks and kidnaps his idol, a late-night TV host. New Regency, whose founder Arnon Milchan produced the original movie starring Robert De Niro, will back the project.

This morning in central London, we were treated to around 15 minutes of new footage from director Joe Wright’s upcoming fantasy/adventure, Pan. The film, which stars Hugh Jackman as the movie’s lead villain Blackbeard, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lilly, Garrett Hedlund as Hook and newcomer Levi Miller as Peter, arrives in cinemas in October.
When Joe Wright‘s Pan was announced, I must admit to being one of those who rolled his eyes at the thought of a new re-imagining of J.M. Barrie’s classic tale. In the very near past we’ve had the likes of Peter Pan (2003), Finding Neverland, and even last year’s TV special Peter Pan Live on our screens, and it seems too soon to take a trip back. Does the world need another movie? It is very clear from the footage that Warner Bros. showed off this morning that director Joe Wright »

It's been nearly five years since the last Chronicles of Narnia film, Voyage of the Dawn Treader, hit theaters and almost two years since there was any word on a potential sequel, but now a little hope has been revived by way of screenwriter David Magee's twitter activity. As reported on NarniaWeb, Life of Pi and Finding Neverland scribe Magee announced on his private twitter page that he has completed his first draft of The Silver Chair after spending more than a year working on the project. See the full text of his tweet below. "Completed the final draft of The Silver Chair today. I’ve had the immense pleasure to work on the project for over a year now.

The Chronicles Of Narnia take another step back towards the big screen, as a Silver Chair script is finished...
The fourth The Chronicles Of Narnia movie has taken a step forward, with the news that a draft of the screenplay has been completed. Screenwriter David Magee (who received Oscar nominations for his Life Of Pi and Finding Neverland scripts) Tweeted the news, writing "Completed the final draft of The Silver Chair today. I’ve had the immense pleasure to work on the project for over a year now. So fulfilling".
The Tweet is no longer visible at his account, but the folks at Narniaweb have been in touch with Magee, and he's confirmed the news.
There's still a long way to go on this one, of course. The Mark Gordon Company is the new custodian of the Narnia films, and it has to decide if it's happy with Magee's screenplay, »
As reported by Deadline, Stanley Kubrick’s written script for The Downslope will now be made into a film series by World War Z and Finding Neverland director Marc Forster, who will serve as producer for all three films and director for the first. Kubrick wrote the script in 1956 after his film Fear and Desire hit theaters, and before he started working on Paths of Glory. The film is said to be “a sweeping, historical action-drama,” according to Deadline, and will revolve around the Civil War. The first film of the trilogy will be based on Kubrick’s script and concept, and the subsequent films will expand on his original ideas and focus on the after-effects of the Civil War.
Kubrick’s death in 1999 has obviously not stopped his ideas from reaching the big screen, as seen with Spielberg’s film A.I. Artificial Intelligence in 2001. That film was brought about »
New Stanley Kubrick movies?! Not just one, but an entire trilogy? Whoa! Cool. Deadline is reporting that Marc Forster, director of Monster's Ball, Finding Neverland, Stranger Than Fiction, The Kite Runner, Quantum of Solace, Machine Gun Preacher and World War Z previously, has signed on to develop a feature film trilogy based on Stanley Kubrick's lost original screenplay The Downslope, that Kubrick wrote in 1956. Forster will direct & produce the first movie in the trilogy, then will only produce the other two, with other directors being lined up (most likely, but as of yet unconfirmed). This will be a "sweeping, historical action-drama" during the Civil War about Confederate Army Col. John S. Mosby who goes after Gen. Custer. The legendary, seminal filmmaker Stanley Kubrick originally wrote the script for The Downslope in 1956, apparently spending years "studying, developing and writing the story." He wrote it after the release of Fear and Desire, »

Written in 1956 following the release of Kubrick's allegorical war film “Fear and Desire,” "The Downslope" was a sweeping Civil War action-drama based on historical events. But Kubrick chose to direct instead his Ww I anti-war Oscar-winner “Paths of Glory." "The Downslope" was another cautionary, anti-war tale, that was originally developed with renowned Civil War historian Shelby Foote, who later collaborated with documentarian Ken Burns on his hugely popular PBS series "The Civil War." Forster (“Finding Neverland,” “Monsters Ball") is attached to direct and produce the first in the series and will produce the remaining features. Producers Lauren Selig, Barry Levine and Reneé Wolfe are developing the material with Forster. Selig initiated the project with rights holders Phil Hobbs (“Full Metal Jacket”) and Steve Lanning, who are also producers on the project, which has the full support of the Kubrick »

Lauren Selig (“Lone Survivor”), Barry Levine (“Oblivion”) and Reneé Wolfe (“All I See Is You”) will be producing with Forster. Selig initiated the project with producers/rights holders Phil Hobbs (“Full Metal Jacket”) and Steve Lanning, who are also serving as producers.
The movie has the full support and encouragement of the Kubrick family. Kubrick wrote the script following the release of his allegorical war film “Fear and Desire” and prior to directing his World War I drama “Paths of Glory.” Both films were cautionary, anti-war stories.
“The Downslope” centers on a series of Civil War battles in the Shenandoah »

After winning the Best Actress Oscar for Stephen Frears' 2006 "The Queen," Helen Mirren was reluctant to reprise the role but unable to turn down director Stephen Daldry and writer Peter Morgan when they wanted her to topline their Broadway play "The Audience." But it paid off, as Mirren and her costar Richard McCabe both took home acting honors for the play. Meanwhile, veteran Hollywood producer Scott Rudin took home Best Revival of a Play kudos for "Skylight," whose stars Carey Mulligan and Bill Nighy walked away empty-handed. Rudin has also produced big Tony winners in the past, including "The Book of Mormon" and last year's revival of "Raisin in the Sun."
