Clint Eastwood Is Returning to Acting

21 May 2017 3:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Clint Eastwood is one of those rare Hollywood stars who is a legend both in front of and behind the camera. While he's best known to most audiences as an actor, with decades of iconic performances, but he has also established himself as one of our finest filmmakers as well. In recent years, the multi-hyphenate has focused his energies more on filmmaking and less in acting, with his last on screen performance coming in his 2012 baseball movie entitled Trouble With the Curve, where he played an aging baseball scout. During an appearance at the Cannes Film Festival, the Hollywood icon suggested that he eventually will make his return to acting.

Variety attended a master class being put on by the actor-filmmaker at the Cannes Film Festival, where he discussed a variety of topics. The filmmaker stated that he does miss performing "once in a while but not often," while hinting »

Viggo Mortensen to star in thriller 'Unabomb'

15 May 2017 2:53 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Im Global fully financing and introducing to Cannes buyers.

Two-time Oscar nominee Viggo Mortensen will star in the thriller Unabomb for The Trouble With The Curve director Robert Lorenz.

Im Global is fully financing the project and lining up additional cast for a January 2018 production start.

Lorenz is producing Unabomb with Michele Weisler and Im Global’s president of feature film production Greg Shapiro.

Unabomb centres on one of the largest manhunts in history as FBI agent Jim Freeman, played by Mortensen, takes on the unsolved case of the Unabomber, who terrorised Americans with 16 bombings over the course of two decades.

Freeman and his unconventional team travel the country piecing together a profile of the infamous hooded suspect.

However the closer they get to narrowing down the terrorist’s identity, the more deadly and personal the attacks become. Randy Brown adapted the screenplay from the book Unabomber by Jim Freeman, Terry Turchie and Donald »

14 May 2017 9:17 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The night is dark and full of ways to keep exploring the Game of Thrones-verse: According to book series author George R. R. Martin, HBO has five writers — not four, as previously reported — working on possible spinoffs of the premium cabler’s fantasy drama.

“We had four scripts in development when I arrived in L.A. last week, but by the time I left we had five,” Martin wrote in a blog post Sunday. “We have added a fifth writer to the original four.”

Cannes 2017 Unveils Official Schedule, Adds Masterclasses With Clint Eastwood and Alfonso Cuarón

11 May 2017 6:40 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As is tradition, the Cannes Film Festival has unveiled its official schedule just days before the creme de la creme of festivals kicks off next week. Buried in an impressively stacked lineup are two brand new and delightfully unexpected additions: masterclasses with Clint Eastwood and Alfonso Cuarón, both listed as part of their Cannes Classics slate.

Eastwood’s class is slated for two hours on Sunday, May 21. The previous day, Cannes will screen Eastwood’s 1992 Western classic, “Unforgiven.” Eastwood is a long-time Cannes regular, screening films such as “Changeling,” “Pale Rider,” “Bird,” “Absolute Power,” and “Mystic River” at the festival over the years.

In 1994, he served as President of the Official Selection jury, which ultimately picked Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction” as their Palme d’Or winner.

Tribeca review: The Dinner serves up high drama with Richard Gere and Laurie Linney

1 May 2017 9:17 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

It’s a high drama between salad and entree in filmmaker Oren Moverman’s The Dinner. Set in the kind of restaurant that you have to kill someone to get a reservation, two couples meet for great food and even better conversation. And none of them will ever be the same by the time the check arrives. Richard Gere and Laura Linney head the cast as two alpha characters in roles that are a standard part of each actor’s standard repertoire. Think Gere in Arbitrage and Linney in Mystic River. Gere is a popular Congressman on the eve of his run for...read more »

Why Denzel Washington Could Make History with a Surprise Third Oscar Win

23 February 2017 9:12 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

With a best actor nomination for his tour-de-force performance in Fences, Denzel Washington is on the verge of making history — again. 

Should he win, Washington would have more Oscars under his belt than any other African-American actor. He is already the most nominated, having landed his seventh nod this year for Fences, and is also the only African-American to win multiple acting Oscars.

But with Casey Affleck’s gut-wrenching turn in Manchester By the Sea wracking up best actor nominations and wins throughout awards season, this year’s Oscars will see Washington playing an unfamiliar role: the underdog.

Tim Robbins Joins HBO’s Alan Ball Series

21 February 2017 9:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tim Robbins has joined the cast of HBO’s family drama from Alan Ball, Variety has learned.

The Academy Award winner will star alongside Holly Hunter in the untitled 10-episode series.

The series focuses on a contemporary multi-racial family: a philosophy professor, his lawyer wife, their three adopted children from Somalia, Vietnam and Colombia, and their sole biological child. This seemingly perfect, progressive family is in actuality harboring deep rifts. Then, one of the children begins to see things others cannot — is it mental illness, or something else? The series is described as a tragicomic meditation on the complicated forces at work on us all in America today.

Robbins will play the philosophy professor, Greg. He is questioning his life, his purpose, and the world in which he lives — a world in which it seems the bad guys have won — and his strained relationship with his wife Audrey (Hunter) adds to his overall anxiety.
