Screenwriter Eric Roth Says '8 1/2'-Style Spin-Off From Scorsese & De Niro's 'The Irishman' Never Came To Pass

22 December 2011 12:57 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Like an arrow straight to the pleasure center of the brain of Scorsese fetishists came the announcement a couple of years back of "The Irishman" (or, as it was known initially, "I Heard You Paint Houses") a film that would potentially reunite Martin Scorsese with Robert DeNiro, his long-time collaborator, for the first time since 1995's "Casino," for a story about real-life hitman Frank 'The Irishman' Sheeran, a man allegedly responsible for as many as 25 murders. And more excitingly, the movie was lining up a who's who of Scorsese and gangster pictures, with Harvey Keitel and Joe Pesci looking to reunite with the helmer, while Al Pacino was said to be involved too, marking the first time he would work with the great filmmaker. But less well reported at the time was the possibility of a second, connected project, said by DeNiro to be the idea of "Forrest Gump, »

Eddie Redmayne on My Week With Marilyn and the Quest For the Right Role

29 November 2011 8:20 AM, PST | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

He's won a Tony Award (for Red) and held his own onscreen opposite everyone from Angelina Jolie and Matt Damon (The Good Shepherd) to Julianne Moore (Savage Grace) to Cate Blanchett (Elizabeth: The Golden Age). But there's something about Eddie Redmayne's role in My Week With Marilyn -- as Colin Clark, a glorified film-set gofer mediating the relationship between Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams) and her Prince and the Showgirl co-star and director Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh) -- that hints at just the right screen role at just the right time. »

Eddie Redmayne On Which Old Screen Legend He Would Have An Affair With

22 November 2011 7:30 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

It's not hard to stomach Eddie Redmayne as a 23-year-old Colin Clark, the set gofer a 31-year-old Marilyn Monroe picked out to be her constant companion. At 29, Redmayne's chiseled looks carry a glimmer of the boy next door, comforting to someone as far from her comfort zone as Monroe was on the set of "The Prince and the Showgirl."

"My Week with Marilyn" is based on Clark's memoir, "The Prince, The Showgirl and Me," and follows his observations of and close interactions with the icon as she drove her director/co-star, Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh), mad, quarreled with then-husband Arthur Miller (Dougray Scott) and dragged the production along with her. The fragile Marilyn we see here, played by Michelle Williams, is funneled through Clark's view of her, as he becomes privy to Monroe's alternately depressed and carefree moments while sharing her bed.

Up to this point, the English actor »

David Fincher & Eric Roth May Reunite For ‘Cleopatra’ With Angelina Jolie

16 November 2011 11:07 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Word that David Fincher was a possibility to helm Sony Picture’s upcoming Cleopatra biopic surfaced earlier this year. The acclaimed filmmaker is reportedly still circling the project, which Angelina Jolie remains attached to headline.

Oscar-winner Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential, Mystic River, Robin Hood) penned an earlier draft of the film’s screenplay, which is based on Pulitzer Prize-winner Stacy Schiff’s decorated best-selling non-fiction book, “Cleopatra: A Life”. Now, another Academy Award-winning scriber is in negotiations to take a stab at the Cleopatra script.

Variety is reporting that Eric Roth is in “early discussions” to work on the screenplay for Cleopatra. Roth won an Oscar for his Forrest Gump script and has penned (or co-written) many a historical and/or biographical drama before, including The Insider, Ali, Munich, and The Good Shepherd. He also ...

Forecast: Sandler, Gods Challenge 'Puss'

10 November 2011 2:58 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Adam Sandler's box office draw is set to be tested this weekend when he squares off against Leonardo DiCaprio and a handful of Greek gods. Jack and Jill, which will open on roughly 4,700 screens at 3,438 locations, should manage to win the weekend, though it looks like it will fall on the low end of Sandler debuts. Fantasy epic Immortals will wage war on roughly 5,000 screens at 3,112 theaters, with 70 percent of theaters offering the movie in 3D. And, after a mid-week limited debut, Clint Eastwood's historical drama J. Edgar hits around 2,400 screens at 1,910 locations. Also in competition for the top spot this weekend is two-time champ Puss in Boots, which looks poised for another fairly light decline.Jack and Jill is Adam Sandler's fifth collaboration with director Dennis Dugan in the past four-and-a-half years, and second this year following Just Go With It.

‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ Helmer Rupert Wyatt In Talks to Poison Michael Fassbender for Producer Johnny Depp

4 November 2011 4:08 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

One would be remiss to argue that anybody emerged from Rise of the Planet of the Apes looking better than director Rupert Wyatt and star Andy Serkis. The proof is in the picture, but this was reinforced just yesterday when the actor was the first person signed by Fox for a return (the director and screenwriters were already attached for sequels). But Wyatt isn’t being limited to the Apes franchise; Deadline tells us that a new project has landed in his lap, and it sounds terrific.

This is Londongrad, a spy drama based on the true story of Alexander Litvinenko, the former Kgb operative who was poisoned and died in 2006. His demise was, as is always the case with spies mysterious. Litvinenko accused Russian secret service and his then-president, Vladimir Putin, of carrying out the hit, but the case was never solved — and likely never will be. If Wyatt signs on, »

Casting Watch: Hooper's Les Miserables Adds Redmayne to All Star Cast of Jackman, Crowe, Hathaway

1 November 2011 1:13 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Tom Hooper's The King's Speech follow-up, the screen adaptation of the global hit musical Les Miserables, just added Eddie Redmayne (My Week With Marilyn, The Good Shepherd) to its all-star cast. As Marius, Redmayne will join Hugh Jackman (Jean Valjean), Russell Crowe (Inspector Javert) and Anna Hathaway (Fantine). This eclectic mix of talent could be volatile. While Jackman is a delight to work with, both Hooper and Crowe have reps for being tough and demanding. The musical is aiming for Oscar season 2013 with a December 2012 release date (with good reason: The King's Speech dominated the 2011 Oscars). Bille August last put the period musical on celluloid in 1998 with Liam Neeson and Claire Danes. This edition of the Victor Hugo classic was written »

To solve a mysterious and macabre murder, Homicide brings in Brother Sam (Mos Def), a minister with a criminal past whom Dexter (Michael C.

1. The Good Shepherd - Dexter follows Brother Sam.

DVD & Blu-ray News: Transformers – Dark of the Moon (UK/R2)

30 September 2011 11:25 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Paramount Pictures have released details on the UK DVD and Blu-ray release of this summers biggest blockbuster, Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Released in the Us today – an extra-special Friday release no less – the film doesn’t hit UK stores until November 28th 2011. And that will, like the Us release, be a bare-bones affair sans any extras, I hate to say it, but no doubt swiftly released to cash in on the Christmas market. Hopefully there will be a special edition next year for the real Transformers fans out there like myself (and yes, before you ask, I did like the third film).

From the press release:

Spectacular action, stunning visual effects, non-stop thrills and fan-favourite characters including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Sam Witwicky rocketed Transformers: Dark of the Moon into the stratosphere, with the latest instalment of the wildly popular Transformers franchise surpassing its predecessors to earn over $1.1 billion at the worldwide box office. »
