Over the course of a career that began as a Mouseketeer, Ryan Gosling has been to a great many places on screen, but for a new film, he.s getting ready to head somewhere he.s never been, where most people have never been, the Moon. Yes, that the Moon. He is orbiting the role of Neil Armstrong, the first human to ever walk on the lunar surface (or not, if you.re a conspiracy minded sort), in a project called First Man. Universal is developing the Neil Armstrong biopic with director Damien Chazelle, who burst onto the scene last year with the scorching indie drama Whiplash, and Deadline reports that they want the Drive and The Notebook star for the lead. If this happens, it will mark two projects back to back, or at least very close together, for the duo. Chazelle and Gosling are currently working on La »
Who doesn't adore Rachel McAdams? Hint: it's a trick question, because everyone loves her. Everyone. She totally rocked her roles in films like The Notebook and Sherlock Holmes, but our personal favorite just has to be her role as queen bee Regina George in Mean Girls. Come on, people. How can you possibly ignore her perfect portrayal of what was probably your worst nightmare going into high school? So much drama. So much attitude. So much cunning. So much… pink. In honor of the actress' birthday today, we've collected a few of our favorite Regina quotes, many of which we do not suggest that you take for serious life advice. Or do. Whatever. 1.

As Rachel McAdams rings in her 37th birthday today, we're pitching in to help the actress celebrate her special day by throwing it back to her biggest red carpet hits. Because whether she's at movie premieres, award shows or even the Met Gala (fashion's biggest night out, mind you), Rachel's red carpet style never underwhelms. Recall when The Notebook actress slipped into a floor-sweeping, white-and-lavender Roksanda gown? Or how about that dazzling long-sleeve, embroidered Marchesa number? And while those were both undeniably sleek, they pale in comparison to her 2014 Met Gala getup—a pale pink Ralph Lauren confection (ahhh, we're still completely mesmerized). Then at this »

Yes, The Notebook turns us into an emotional mess, but it's totally worth it, because Noah Calhoun - aka Ryan Gosling - is just so beautiful. Let's be real: Gosling is hot enough on his own without adding in that cute accent. We're looking back on some of the most gorgeous Noah moments from the movie, and there are quite a few. From his handsome, charming first-date smirks to his sexy, rugged days later on, there are plenty of reasons to swoon over Noah. To celebrate the leading man's birthday, check out the hottest Ryan Gosling eye candy from The Notebook! »

It's been over a decade since The Notebook hit theaters back in 2004, but Noah and Allie's heartwarming, heartwrenching love story still leaves us reeling. The the movie is being adapted for TV! We are always thinking about the romance because of the very sexy Ryan Gosling as Noah. With Summer love and soul mates and a complicated love triangle, the film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks's book triggered all kinds of feelings - and an even bigger crush on Gosling, of course. Even now, a decade later (and to mark Gosling's birthday this week), the movie's most quotable moments can make us tear up, so take a look back at 45 times The Notebook touched your heart. Because, as Noah said, it still isn't over! »

Gena Rowlands ("The Notebook," "A Woman Under the Influence") chased an acting career early on, but reading books really spurred her journey to the big screen. Ahead of accepting her Honorary Oscar at the Academy’s 7th Annual Governors Awards this Saturday, November 14, the actress gave a rare interview for the AMPAS web series, "Academy Originals." In Rowlands' "What Movies Mean To Me" segment, she recalls her admiration for "All About Eve" star Bette Davis's fierce independence: "it had a lot of bite to it." And she felt empowered to partner with her actor/director husband John Cassavetes to usher in a new wave of independent cinema — that broke the mold of traditional storytelling in movies. Finally, she says: "When you're loved, you're liable to do some of your better work." Actors revere Rowlands, among them Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, who hung out with the actress »

As part of a new series in which we offer careers advice to people in the movie business, here’s a two-or-three step plan for the Gozzle to regain his professional schizzle
Hey, guy, you’ve come a long way. You were cute as a Disney-branded button next to Justin Timberlake on the Mickey Mouse Club, before your first feature role (as a neo-Nazi teen in The Believer) won you near-universal acclaim. You turned fans’ pages in Nicholas Sparks weepie The Notebook, then hauled yourself out of dumb hunk purgatory by taking a couple of indie roles – a sex-doll seducing sweetie in Lars and the Real Girl and a lovelorn schlub in Derek Cianfrance’s Blue Valentine – that were as weird as they were satisfying. Then up popped Nicolas Winding Refn, jingling the keys to a part that would rev your stock to the stars. The nastier Drive got (your »

This year, the Oscars are almost as confusing as the 2016 presidential race. While many candidates have thrown their hats in the ring—from “Brooklyn” to “Carol,” “Room” and “The Martian”—there’s yet a frontrunner in the best picture race. And the acting categories are even harder to handicap. Will Johnny Depp manage to keep the momentum going, despite mixed reviews for “Black Mass”? Or will the soft box office for “Steve Jobs” hurt Michael Fassbender’s chances? Every year, the Academy throws some curveballs into the mix. Here are 11 performances that haven’t been buzzed about enough, but deserve Oscars consideration.
Best Supporting Actor, “The Intern”
De Niro could lock up a nomination for his supporting role in “Joy,” David O. Russell’s upcoming drama that hasn’t screened yet. But his strongest performance in years—even better than the last time he was invited to the Oscars, »

The present-day “Cruel Intentions” reboot will center around the 16-year-old son of the late Sebastian Valmont (played by Phillippe in the film) and Annette Hargrove (played by Witherspoon), named Bash Casey. Upon finding his late father’s journal, Bash learns of the family legacy he didn’t know existed. In search of answers, he trades his small-town Kansas upbringing for a scholarship to the prestigious Brighton Preparatory Academy in San Francisco and soon finds himself in a world of sex, money, power and corruption he never could have imagined.

In the fall of 2012, “Emily Owens M.D.” debuted on the CW. Its cast was attractive and appealing, but the medical soap failed to connect with audiences. “Emily Owens,” which was created by Jennie Snyder Urman (who would go on to birth “Jane the Virgin”) soon faded into oblivion.
Fast-forward to three years later, when the network has bagged a Peabody Award for one of its series — the critically acclaimed “Jane” — and is reaching ratings records for another — the superhero phenomenon “The Flash.” Under the stewardship of Mark Pedowitz, who was named president of the network in April 2011, the CW is arguably more creatively relevant and commercially competitive than it’s ever been.
Not only has it bagged multiple awards and noms, including a Golden Globe for “Jane” star Gina Rodriguez, it’s expanded its reach beyond its traditional female-skewing, 18- to 34-year-old audience. New series have turned up on critics’ top 10 lists, »

Variety reports that Ronda Rousey's Roadhouse remake has found its director: Nick Cassavetes, son of indie-film pioneer John and an industry veteran in his own right. Cassavetes's 20-year directing career has spanned comedies (The Other Woman), melodramas (The Notebook), and thrillers (John Q), but Variety reports that it was his facility with "strong roles for women" that landed him the Roadhouse gig, though "roles for strong women" would be equally applicable in this case. The new Roadhouse is expected to begin shooting next year, after Rousey's fight with Holly Holm in November. »

It’s been a full two years since Rob Cohen was attached to MGM’s remake of Road House, and the modern take quickly slipped off the radar once the director exited the project. Low and behold, by securing Ufc champ Ronda Rousey to lead the film, MGM has fired the cult classic back into the limelight, and now Variety is reporting that Nick Cassavetes has signed on to write and direct.
Throughout his writing career, Cassavetes has moulded a number of strong female characters on the big screen, and it’s believed that this impressive track record is what attracted MGM’s attention in the first place. While John Q and Alpha Dog feature on his résumé, it is writing credits on such films as The Notebook and My Sister’s Keeper that make him a fine candidate to take the reins of Road House.
As for Rousey, she »

He replaces Fast & Furious director Rob Cohen, who was originally attached to the project.
Sure, there was The Other Woman last year - 23% on Rotten Tomatoes - but let's just pretend that didn't happen.
The Road House remake has no confirmed release date, but is set to start shooting early next year. »
"The Notebook" author Nicholas Sparks is a true romantic in real life ... when it comes to his beloved North Carolina mansion, anyway -- and now he's making sure he keeps it in the breakup with his wife. According to docs obtained by TMZ ... Nicholas and Catherine Sparks both signed the deed for "Trent Acres" -- the massive family estate -- over to the Nicholas Sparks trust.

According to Variety, Nick Cassavetes (The Notebook, Alpha Dog) has signed on to helm the film, as well as penning the screenplay. It’s understood that MGM are fast tracking the project to shoot in early 2016.

Be in no doubt that the remake of Road House is finally happening after sitting in development hell for many years. Last month, we learned that Ronda Rousey was to take on the Patrick Swayze role in the new Road House. Now we know who's going to be directing it.
The job has gone to Nick Cassavetes, best known for the likes of Alpha Dog, The Notebook and John Q. We'd assume that production on the movie can't be too far away now it's got its key personnel in place.
As we hear more on the new Road House, we'll let you know. Might it yet sneak in for a 2016 release, we wonder?

As announced a month or so ago MGM is developing a new version of the Patrick Swayze action classic Road House, retooled to star Ufc fighter-turned actor Ronda Rousey. Now that project also has a writer/director. Nick Cassavetes will be sweeping up the eyeballs at the Double Deuce.Son of John, brother of Xan, Cassavetes has a long CV as an actor (he even played himself in Entourage, as did Rousey in the movie), but also has eight credits to his name behind the camera, with several other projects in the works. In terms of crunchy drama we might look to John Q or Alpha Dog for clues to what he might do with Road House. He also made The Other Woman and The Notebook, which Variety claim got him through the Road House door. "Strong female characters", y'see.The original Road House sees the owner of the sleazy bar, »
