Producers Guild Picks 2017 PGA Awards Date

28 June 2016 1:19 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Producers Guild of America (PGA) has set Saturday, January 28, 2017 for its 28th Annual Producers Guild Awards. (This year, the date was January 23.) The Producers Guild boasts more than 7,000 members. The 2017 Producers Guild Awards will cover the best in motion pictures, television and new media productions.

The motion picture members pick ten movies, which often reflect the Oscar nominees, depending on the number. Last year “Sicario,” “Ex Machina” and “Straight Outta Compton” didn’t make the Oscar cut of eight, which included non-pga-nominee “Room.”  The PGA winner usually matches up with the Best Picture Oscar — although in 2012 the PGA tied with “12 Years a Slave” and “Gravity,” while last year the PGA muddied Oscar predictors’ picks with a win for “The Big Short.”

The awards will be presented at The Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles, with Donald De Line (“The Italian Job”) and Amy Pascal (“Ghostbusters”) as Awards Chairs.

Durban: ‘Kalushi’ Tells Tale of South African Freedom Fighter

25 June 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Celebrated as a hero of the anti-apartheid struggle, the late South African freedom fighter Solomon “Kalushi” Mahlangu has life-sized statues adorning city squares and a soccer stadium named in his honor. It’s only now, though, that his story has been told on the big screen, thanks to the feature-film debut of Mandla Dube, whose biopic “Kalushi” was a hit this week at the Durban Intl. Film Festival.

Eight years in the making, the movie, which traces the short and revolutionary life of Mahlangu before his execution by the apartheid government at the age of 23, has already been hailed as a “hugely important film” by a leading South African film critic.

For Dube, who once mooted telling Mahlangu’s story in a four-part TV series, “Kalushi” offers a chance to pay tribute to one of the iconic heroes of the liberation struggle on the “large canvas” he deserves.

The end of the seventh Fast and the Furious film packed an unbelievable emotional punch as the character of Brian was written out. After the tragic and untimely death of Paul Walker fans were uncertain whether the franchise in which he made his name would continue. They didn’t have to wait too long though as the film amassed a mighty box-office, meaning that of course they’d be more. In fact an entire new trilogy was announced and whilst first thoughts were that a new crew would lead the action, that was quickly quashed as Vin Diesel announced his involvement.

Other cast members confirmed to return include Dwayne JohnsonKurt RussellNathalie Emmanuel and Jason Statham with both Eva Mendez and Lucas Black rumoured to be returning to the fold. »

F. Gary Gray's Fast 8 is going to be visiting a number of locales. Two of those are near and dear to me: New York (my home) and Cuba, where the maternal half of my family comes from. Pretty cool.

Charlize Theron will follow her role in "Mad Max: Fury Road" with a part in an even more high-octane action franchise: The Oscar winner has reportedly signed on to star in "Fast 8."

According to Deadline, Theron has just inked a deal to join the cast of the latest installment in the blockbuster "Fast & Furious" series. There are no details yet about just what her role entails, though the trade notes that she'll be playing "a new character."

The role will reunite Theron with her "The Italian Job" director F. Gary Gray, who's helming "Fast 8." She'll join returning stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, and Jason Statham.

As Deadline notes, Theron's casting continues a recent trend for the venerable "Fast" franchise, which has added more high-profile names to its ensemble -- including now-regulars Johnson and Statham -- in its last few outings in order to inject some new life into the series. »

Furiosa joins ‘Furious’: Charlize Theron signs on for ‘Fast 8’

7 April 2016 11:06 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In Mad Max: Fury Road, Charlize Theron drove with reckless abandon across a desert wasteland. It looks like she’ll have the chance to put those skills to the test again as Theron is joining the next installment of the Fast and Furious franchise. According to Variety, Theron is on board for the eighth iteration of the car chase movies - this one called Fast 8. While it’s uncertain what her exact role will be, the publication is reporting that she’ll be a villain fighting against Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez among others. The movie will be shot by F. Gary Gray, who previously directed Theron in the 2003 movie The Italian Job. Since the franchise began in 2001, the Fast movies have raked in more than $3.8 billion.  Furious 7 alone delivered $1.5 billion worldwide. The next (but certainly not the last) installment is slated for an April 2017 release. »

Charlize Theron Sought For Villain Role In 'Fast 8'

10 February 2016 7:18 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While Universal's "Fast & Furious" franchise is winding down, with three more movies to go (at least for now), don't think for a second they aren't going to try to make each one bigger than the last. And for "Fast 8," they've got their eyes on a major talent to play the villain. Deadline reports that the filmmakers are seeking out "Mad Max: Fury Road" star Charlize Theron to play the villain in "Fast 8." If it seems like an outlandish idea, Theron has previously worked with director F. Gary Gray on "The Italian Job," and apparently her schedule is open, so she could take the role if she wanted. This is also the studio that nabbed Tom Cruise to star in "The Mummy" and Johnny Depp to play "The Invisible Man." And no doubt, after enduring the tough shoot of 'Fury Road,' facing the testosterone of Vin Diesel and his crew should be no sweat. »

'Fast 8' Eyeing Oscar-Winning Actress To Play Villain

10 February 2016 6:59 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Fast 8 is getting ready to race into production, as the Universal franchise prepares to launch a final trilogy of films based on the adventures of Dominic Torreto and his band of merry misfits. But just who will they be facing off against this time around, in a film that will take place in locations like New York and Iceland?

According to a report from Deadline, the film's director and screenwriter are looking to land Academy Award-winner Charlize Theron. The actress is currently riding a very positive wave of buzz thanks to her bad ass turn in George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road, and she'd be a very high-profile "get" for the production. 

Something that could aide in landing her is that director F. Gary Gray already has a rapport with the actress, thanks to their work together on his The Italian Job. As of now, she's who they're »

10 February 2016 5:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Deadline, Universal Pictures is looking to introduce a female villain for the eighth instalment of the Fast & Furious franchise, with director F. Gary Gray and screenwriter Chris Moran said to be eyeing Mad Max: Fury Road star Charlize Theron.

The site reports that no offer has been made to Theron as yet, nor has the actress seen the script. However, she has previously worked with director Gray back in 2003 on The Italian Job, and the part is said to be a “juicy role and a primo spot for any actress.”

Fast 8 will launch a new trilogy of films when it hits cinemas on April 14th 2017, with Fast & Furious 9 set for April 19th 2019 and Fast & Furious 10 due to arrive on April 2nd, 2021.
