Trevor Hogg chats with Marcelo Zarvos about the art of composing, The Good Shepherd, The Big C, Ray Donovan and being nominated for an Emmy... 

“When I was really young I remember watching The Sting [1973] and I loved that music,” recalls Marcelo Zarvos.  “It was one of those things which made me want to play the piano.”  The instrument would play a major part in obsession which would become a career for the aspiring musician.  “When I was a kid I played rock ’n’ roll in bands.  I left Brazil when I was 18 years old.  I used to write the music for the band and eventually I became interested in film.”  The native of São Paulo was fascinated by the effectiveness of the musical scores featured in The Godfather (1972), Taxi Driver (1976), The Mission (1986) and Blade Runner (1982). “There was a new wave of Brazilian movies that was very good and interesting »

Kevin Costner 'Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves' lawsuit to proceed?

6 August 2013 1:04 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kevin Costner is on the verge of winning the right to pursue a legal case against Morgan Creek, the production company behind Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.

Costner starred as the titular character in the 1991 film, based on the legend of the British outlaw.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a judge has issued a tentative ruling suggesting that the actor will be given permission to proceed with a fraud claim against Morgan Creek, which Costner's lawyers claim hid money from him by assigning foreign distribution rights to a company owned by Morgan Creek CEO James Robinson.

Costner has accused Morgan Creek of cheating him out of millions of dollars, by under-reporting home video revenue of Robin Hood, which grossed over $300 million internationally.

The 58-year-old actor is seeking an unspecified amount in damages from the production company, which has also been accused of shielding liabilities in the past in relation to »

Eddie Redmayne To Play Stephen Hawking In Working Title’s ‘Theory Of Everything’

12 June 2013 6:20 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: After crushing it on Les Miserables, Eddie Redmayne is being fought over for his next lead role. I heard that he’s going to land on Theory Of Everything, and that he’ll play physicist Stephen Hawking in the film that Working Title is fast assembling with director James Marsh, who shared the Best Documentary Oscar for Man On Wire. The film focus is on the relationship between Hawking and his wife and it marks a re-team of the actor and Working Title partners Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner from Les Miserables. They are actively discussing the female lead, with an early fall start being eyed. Redmayne has also been courted to star with Carey Mulligan and Matthias Schoenaerts in the Thomas Vinterberg-directed Far From The Madding Crowd, but I believe that his priority is the Hawking project written by Anthony McCarten. It is a potential tour de force role as Hawking, »

However, this can magnified when the talent is known for ground-breaking performances, in some of cinema’s most unforgettable masterpieces. Today, we’re celebrating the UK release of all-star romantic comedy, The Big Wedding, with a look back at some of the offerings of, arguably, the greatest living actor (although, Pacino will undoubtedly have something to say about that); two-time Academy Award-winner, Robert De Niro.

With an acting credit list of close to 100 films, we can’t look at them all, but we’ve focused on what we believe are Bob’s best, along with a few of his worst…

First coming to prevalence in Brian DePalma’s late 1960s cult trio Greetings, Hi Mom and The Wedding Party, before stand-out roles in gangster comedy, The Gang That Couldn’T Shoot Straight, and baseball drama, »
