Amazon has ordered Sony’s “The Last Tycoon” to series. As first reported by Deadline, the TV adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s unfinished 1930s-set final novel will star Matt Bomer as young film exec Monroe Stahr and Kelsey Grammer as his mentor—and soon-to-be enemy—Pat Brady. Rosemarie DeWitt will play Rose Brady, Pat’s possibly two-timing wife, with Lily Collins playing Brady daughter Celia.

The Hunger Games” and “Shattered Glass” scribe Billy Ray will write and direct the series, which comes from Sony’s TriStar TV. The pilot, available to watch now on Amazon Video, drew good reviews from viewers, with 79% giving it a five-star rating.

“The Last Tycoon” already has one TV adaptation, as a 1957 play broadcast by CBS as part of the “Playhouse 90” anthology series, starring Jack Palance as Stahr. Harold Pinter adapted the novel for the big screen in 1976, nabbing Robert DeNiro for the role of Stahr and Robert Mitchum as »

Amazon 2016 Pilots: ‘The Interestings’ and ‘The Last Tycoon,’ Reviewed

17 June 2016 1:01 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The Last Tycoon

In the year 2016, it’s no secret that as glamorous as old Hollywood seemed on the surface, the truth was far less wholesome. With that in mind, “The Last Tycoon,” written and directed by Billy Ray (the under-appreciated talent behind such films as “Shattered Glass,” adapting a famously unfinished roman a clef by F. Scott Fitzgerald) might seem a bit rote, but it’s got an awful lot going for it.

Matt Bomer stars as Monroe Stahr, the idealistic production head of a motion picture studio who’s at odds with studio boss Pat Brady (Kelsey Grammer) while trying to get his dream picture made in the political and social climate of the 1930s. (Why yes, the subject of what’s happening in Germany does come up.) Monroe, we learn right away, is mourning the loss of his movie star wife even as he bounds around the studio, »

The professional wrestling world is in mourning today, after news broke last night that Joanie Laurer, best known as WWE Superstar Chyna, passed away at the age of 45. We showed you a number of social media posts that came in last night, from pro wrestlers past and present, paying tribute to this squared circle icon. As the news continued to spread, even more wrestlers paid their respects through social media, as you can see in the several tweets we've gathered below.

The former wrestler's manager told E! News last night that "she was found peacefully," and police couldn't find any signs of foul play. Authorities were called to Chyna's apartment in Redondo Beach, California on Wednesday afternoon, after a friend discovered she was not breathing. She was pronounced dead on the scene, and the cause of death is currently unknown.

On Mubi Off #5: "The Official Story" & "Spotlight"

7 March 2016 10:06 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

On Mubi Off is a column exploring two films: one currently available on Mubi in the United States, and the other screening offsite (in theaters, on VOD, Blu-ray/DVD, etc).On MUBIThe Official Story (Luis Puenzo, 1985)My instinct to stand, whenever possible, slightly outside the zeitgeist leads me to look askew at things like the Academy Awards. To my mind, they're a good excuse to have a party (heavily attended, so I can pay that much less attention to the ceremony itself), though I realize they have a certain fleeting cachet that can boost the prospects of a film or a career. As a metric of quality, however, they're about as worthless as any mass-consensus accolade.
