Kate Beckinsale on Harvey Weinstein: "He Couldn't Remember If He Had Assaulted Me or Not"

12 October 2017 8:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Kate Beckinsale has shared an account of meeting Harvey Weinstein, after which "he couldn't remember if he had assaulted me or not."

The actress, who starred in The Weinstein Co. titles Serendipity and The Aviator, took to Instagram to recall when she met with the Hollywood producer at the Savoy Hotel when she was 17 years old. She assumed it would be a business discussion in a conference room, but she was then sent up to a hotel room, with Weinstein greeting her in his bathrobe.

Academy Governors Debate Revoking Harvey Weinstein’s Membership — Exclusive

11 October 2017 10:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Two Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences governors told me that Academy board members are discussing whether Harvey Weinstein should continue as a member. An impromptu board meeting is expected sometime this week. It’s worth noting that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences board of governors is now one-third female, with members who include Whoopi Goldberg, Kimberly Peirce, and Christina Kounelias.

This would be a stunning reversal: By the count of The Weinstein Company’s website, his companies earned 303 Oscar nominations and 75 wins over three decades. Harvey could be the butt of Oscar jokes, but historically was the second most-thanked person in acceptance speeches, after Steven Spielberg.

Leonardo DiCaprio Responds to Sexual Assault Allegations Against Harvey Weinstein

10 October 2017 6:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Leonardo DiCaprio has weighed in on the shocking sexual assault allegations against the ex-mogul Harvey Weinstein with a statement of condemnation.

“There is no excuse for sexual harassment or sexual assault — no matter who you are and no matter what profession,” the actor said Tuesday on Facebook. “I applaud the strength and courage of the women who came forward and made their voices heard.”

DiCaprio has starred in several high-profile films that were distributed by Weinstein’s companies, including 2002’s “Gangs of New York,” 2004’s “The Aviator,” and 2012’s “Django Unchained.”

Earlier Tuesday, the New Yorker published a report detailing rape allegations against the mogul by three women, five days after the New York Times story detailing sexual harassment claims leveled against Weinstein, including Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan. The executive was fired on Oct. 8 by his own company.

The allegations have led to a massive condemnation of Weinstein by A-list stars including Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, [link »

10 October 2017 5:54 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Any man in a position of power or authority who thinks it’s his prerogative to threaten, intimidate or sexually assault any woman he encounters or works alongside needs to be called to account. It is never easy for a woman to come forward in such situations and I wholeheartedly support those who have,” Blanchett said.

Blanchett worked with the Weinstein Co. on films such as “Carol” and “The Aviator,” for which she won the best supporting actress Oscar. Earlier in her career, she starred in Miramax films such as “The Talented Mr. Ripley” and “The Shipping News.”

She is currently appearing in “Thor: Ragnarok” and has “Where’d You Go Bernadette” coming out in 2018.

And I want to thank them for their bravery to come forward.”

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese to reteam for Teddy Roosevelt biopic

1 October 2017 6:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like Martin Scorsese will follow up his currently-in-production mob epic The Irishman by reuniting with Leonardo DiCaprio, although it may not be for the previously reported FBI tale Killers of the Flower Moon or the Dr. H.H. Holmes serial killer film The Devil in the White City.

According to Deadline, the duo are set to collaborate on a biopic of the 26th U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt, which was first set up way back in 2005. Originally it was to take its inspiration from the Pulitzer Prize-winning Edmund Morris book The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, with Nicholas Meyer (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan) penning the screenplay. However, this new take will instead be based on a script by Scott Bloom.

Here Are 59 Actors Who Landed Oscar Nominations For Portraying Characters With Disabilities

25 September 2017 2:31 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Triumph over adversity is drama defined, and Oscar nominations often go to actors whose characters find victory over physical or mental afflictions. The earliest example goes back to 1947; that was the year that non-pro Harold Russell won Best Supporting Actor and a special award for “The Best Years of Our Lives.” Russell was a WWII veteran who lost both of his hands while making a training film. Of note: Of the 59, 27 of these nominations went on to a win. This year’s roster of stars playing afflicted characters includes Jake Gyllenhaal as bombing victim Jeff Baumer in “Stronger,” Andrew Garfield as polio survivor Robin Cavendish in “Breathe,” Bryan Cranston as a millionaire quadriplegic in “The Upside,” and Sally Hawkins in two roles, as an arthritic painter in “Maudie” and a mute lab worker in “The Shape of Water.”

Martin Scorsese to Teach First-Ever Online Filmmaking Class

22 September 2017 10:33 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese is launching an internet-based course in making movies — his first foray into e-learning.

The Oscar-winning director will debut the class in early 2018 through online-education startup MasterClass. The class costs $90 for unlimited access to more than 20 video lessons; pre-enrollment is available starting Friday at masterclass.com/ms.

In addition to the videos, Scorsese’s MasterClass course will include a downloadable workbook with lesson recaps and supplemental material. Students enrolled in the class will be able to upload video questions to Scorsese, who will provide feedback to select students.

“I was excited by this project because it gave me a chance to pass down my own inspirations and experiences and practices and evolutions,” Scorsese said in a statement, “not as a blueprint for how to make movies but as a guidepost, an offering to young people attempting to find their own way.”

Another Devilish Piece Of Fan Art Paints Leonardo DiCaprio As The Joker

4 September 2017 7:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Providing you haven’t been living under a rock since Friday, chances are you’ve caught wind of Warner Bros.’ tentative plans to cast Leonardo DiCaprio as The Joker. And it all centers around legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese.

The Oscar-winner and frequent DiCaprio collaborator has entered talks to produce a “super dark” origin movie involving the Clown Prince of Crime, and though early rumors pointed to a much younger rendition of the DC mega-villain, we’re now learning that Leonardo DiCaprio has landed at the tip-top of Warner’s wishlist.

And after working together across The Aviator, Gangs of New York, The Departed, Shutter Island and The Wolf of Wall Street, news that DiCaprio and Scorsese could potentially reunite for a sixth time – in the breathless world of comic book movies, no less – has transformed The Joker from a fairly divisive idea to one of the most talked about DC projects in the industry. »

Will Leonardo DiCaprio Give the Green Light to Joker Movie?

1 September 2017 3:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. would love to see Leonardo DiCaprio as the Joker in the studio’s planned origin tale, according to sources. But it’s way too early to predict whether the versatile star might be interested, and no offer has been made.

The studio’s Joker standalone film, to be directed by Todd Phillips, is expected to have Martin Scorsese on board as an executive producer.

It makes sense that a Scorsese-led Joker would look to involve DiCaprio — they’ve teamed on “Gangs of New York,” “The Aviator,” best picture winner “The Departed,” “Shutter Island,” and “The Wolf of Wall Street.”

But the Joker project could be a real longshot since DiCaprio, who hasn’t made a movie since he won best actor for “The Revenant,” has been attached to numerous projects that never got made, some with Scorsese. The duo are currently in development on “Devil in the White City” and “Killers of the Flower Moon »

Warner Bros. Eyeing Leonardo DiCaprio for Joker

1 September 2017 3:10 PM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

Now that Warner Bros. and DC have a Joker origin film in the works with Martin Scorsese as producer, it looks like they are eyeing one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, Leonardo DiCaprio. Sounds awesome right? Well that’s the plan at least.

Reports say that there is no offer on the table yet for DiCaprio to play Batman’s most famous nemesis but that WB will use Scorsese as bate to reel in the Oscar-winning actor. Funny enough is that THR‘s sources say that the deal for Scorsese to produce the film “isn’t even done yet.”

If all happens to workout, remember this is Hollywood so it’s a big If, this will mark the sixth time the dynamic duo of DiCaprio and Scorsese have come together. The two have worked together on films such as Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, Shutter Island »

Warner Bros. Reportedly Sets Sights On Leonardo DiCaprio For The Joker

1 September 2017 6:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. is reportedly swinging for the fences when it comes to The Joker.

Not only has the studio entered negotiations with legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese about the possibility of producing the “super dark” origin movie, one which Todd Phillips (The Hangover) would direct, but we’re now learning that the studio’s brass has targeted none other than Leonardo DiCaprio for the gig.

Details are scarce, and it’s unclear how WB plans to incorporate DiCaprio into the mix if The Joker is to be an origin story involving the Clown Prince of Crime, but sources close to the nascent project now suggest Warner Bros. wants DiCaprio or another big-name star to play the Joker as “a gritty crime boss in a Scorsese-esque Gotham underworld.” Where do we sign up?

It’s worth keeping in mind that, should a deal place, this would be the Oscar-winner’s first true »
