Kate Walsh to Mom It Up in 'Wallflower'

10 May 2011 11:56 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Fans of the young adult novel "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" have yet another casting decision to hotly debate in comments sections around the web.

"Private Practice" star Kate Walsh has signed on to play the mom of Charlie (Logan Lerman), the titular wallflower in Stephen Chbosky's beloved book. Walsh Tweeted how excited she is about the gig.

"I guess word's out," she wrote. "Yes, shooting 'Perks of Being a Wallflower.' It's Awesome. A perfect script, delicious cast & fanfrickintastic director."

Lerman is joined by Emma "Hermione" Watson who, along with her stepbrother Patrick, introduces Charlie to a slightly less wallflower-y life than he'd previously known. "Vampire Diaries" heroine Nina Dobrev plays Charlie's sister.

Another name floating around is Paul Rudd; the actor has joined the cast but there's no official report on who he'll play. However, it seems likely that Rudd, whose adorability quotient rivals that of a Labrador puppy, »

Peter Yates obituary

Versatile British film director known for Bullitt, The Deep and Breaking Away

The director Peter Yates, who has died aged 81, helped Steve McQueen achieve iconic status with the cop movie Bullitt (1968), enjoyed a massive box-office success with The Deep (1977) and made one of the most beguiling of all youth movies in Breaking Away (1979). He maintained a steady career throughout five decades, initially in the theatre and then in mainstream cinema, but he suffered the critical neglect so often accorded those who tackle a variety of subjects and genres and become known, somewhat disparagingly, as journeyman directors.

Pauline Kael described him as a competent director "with a good serviceable technique for integrating staged movie action into documentary city locations". David Thomson suggested that, in America, Yates had "done nothing more profound than send hubcaps careering around corners". Bullitt's famous San Francisco car chase (later revived by Ford as part of »

Four-time Oscar-nominated director Peter Yates has died at the age of 81 at his home in London. A statement from his agent Judy Daish says that he passed away following an illness.

Yates was nominated both as a producer and a director for the 1979 movie "Breaking Away" and the 1983 movie "The Dresser." He is also perhaps even more famous for helming the 1968 movie "Bullitt," starring Steve McQueen. "Bullitt" features a classic movie car chase sequences through the steep and winding streets of San Francisco, it's considered one of the best ever. Watch the video below.

Yates' most recent project was the 2004 made-for-tv movie version of "A Separate Peace," which was also actor Hume Cronyn's last project before he passed away in 2003.

Yates is survived by his wife Virginia and a son and daughter. The family has said a private funeral service will be held later this week. »

Moviemaker Yates Dies

10 January 2011 4:07 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

British moviemaker Peter Yates has died at the age of 82.

The director passed away in London on Sunday after suffering a long illness. No more details were available as WENN went to press.

Yates dreamed of becoming an actor in his youth, studying at Britain's Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and going on to star on the stage before working as an assistant director for Tony Richardson.

His feature directorial debut was 1963's low-budget Summer Holiday starring Sir Cliff Richard and he went on to direct Steve McQueen in acclaimed 1968 cop movie Bullitt.

Yates received four Academy Award nominations throughout his career, a double nod for Best Producer and Best Director for Breaking Away (1979) and another two nominations for The Dresser (1983).

More recently, he worked on a 2000 TV adaption of Don Quixote and 2004's A Separate Peace. »

Peter Yates, a director of distinction, passes away

10 January 2011 12:17 AM, PST | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

Late Sunday evening the news broke on Nikki Finke's Deadline that director Peter Yates had passed away. He was 82 and suffering from what the site only refers to as a "long illness."

Yates was one of those names on the periphery of becoming an A-list director, fully competent in his craft but never quite breaking through into the next level. While I'm on the border of speaking ill of the man's work (and I truly don't mean to do a disservice to his memory), as I look back at his resume, few of Yates' films ever stood out and most feel trapped in the eras in which they were made. Still, even though several of his films themselves aren't memorable or well regarded today, I always felt that Yates was able to impart a certain kind of classiness and sophistication to his work. That made his pictures stand out from »
