Richard Linklater Frontrunner To Direct 'The Rosie Project' Starring Jennifer Lawrence

27 July 2015 1:44 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While Richard Linklater has always bounced back and forth between studio projects and indie movies, you have to go back to 2005's "Bad News Bears" to find his last full-fledged picture for a major Hollywood outlet (not counting indie arms). However, in the wake of the success of "Boyhood," it is interesting to see how the studios are coming back to Linklater. Paramount is distributing this next movie, which was just dated for spring 2016, and now Sony is eyeballing the filmmaker. Deadline reports that Linklater is the frontrunner to direct "The Rosie Project" starring Jennifer Lawrence. Phil Lord and Chris Miller were originally attached before they got too busy conquering Hollywood, and I have to say, this seems a little safe and dull for Linklater. Based on Graeme Simsion's bestselling book, with a script by  Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber ("The Spectacular Now," "The Fault In Our »

Jennifer Lawrence’s ‘Rosie Project’ Eyes Director Richard Linklater

27 July 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony is eyeing “Boyhood” director Richard Linklater to helm Jennifer Lawrence’s dramedy “The Rosie Project.”

The movie, based on the Graeme Simsion novel, centers on a socially awkward genetics professor who devises a science-based survey to find the perfect mate — only to see those theories splintered when he meets the spontaneous Rosie Jarman (played by Lawrence), who possesses the opposite qualities.

Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, who teamed on “(500) Days of Summer,” have revised Simsion’s  adaptation of the novel. “The Lego Movie” co-directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were initially interested, but have opted to take on Disney’s Han Solo “Star Wars” standalone movie.

Sony acquired the film rights to “The Rosie Project” last year and set it up with Sony-based producers Matt Tolmach and Michael Costigan.

Paramount announced Monday that it will release Linklater’s baseball comedy — formerly titled “That’s What I’m Talking About »

Richard Linklater Baseball Comedy to Release April 15

27 July 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount has set Richard Linklater’s baseball comedy — formerly titled “That’s What I’m Talking About” — for an April 15 release.

The studio also moved its untitled comedy, which had been starring Leslie Mann, out of that release slot with no new date set.

Megan Ellison is producing the baseball movie along with Sean Daniel, Linklater, Sandra Adair, John Sloss and Ginger Sledge. Daniel and the late Jim Jacks partnered with Linklater on his breakout 1993 teen comedy “Dazed and Confused.”

The pic is the first film for Linklater following his Oscar-nominated family drama “Boyhood.”

Blake Jenner stars as a new pitcher on a highly ranked college baseball team that also parties extensively. Tyler Hoechlin, Wyatt Russell, Ryan Guzman, Zoey Deutch, Will Brittain and Glen Powell also star.

The movie — set in the 198os in Texas — has also been informally titled “Everybody Wants Some.” It’s Linklater’s second baseball comedy »

'Kids': The Oral History of the Most Controversial Film of the Nineties

16 July 2015 10:29 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It was the summer of 1995. Bill Clinton was president, Rudy Giuliani was mayor of New York, and Oj Simpson was on trial. That summer’s youth-oriented movies included Pixar's first movie Toy Story, the Disney musical Pocahontas — and Kids, in which wayward, stoned teens fuck each other senseless and head-stomp random strangers.

It might be hard to remember just how notorious Larry Clark's indie-skater odysey was. The movie grossed a modest $7 million at the box office that summer — a wild success when you account for the fact that it »

27 May 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Former child star Tatum O'Neal is opening up about her surprising dating life. In a new interview with People, the "Bad News Bears" alum gets candid about her sexuality -- telling the mag, "I definitely have been dating mostly women recently." While she doesn't label herself as a lesbian or straight, she adds that she's "not one or the other." O'Neal, 51, goes on to say that she thinks women are "the most amazing creatures on earth. They're gentle, and also more intelligent than the men that I've met recently. I don't have a steady right now, but I look forward to it." The actress has only been linked to men in the past, famously dating Michael Jackson back in the '70s and marrying tennis pro John McEnroe. That marriage lasted from 1986 until their separation in 1992, the former couple welcoming three children together before the split. O'Neals drug abuse led »

New Look at Rob Zombie’s Halloween-Set Horror Film ‘31’

1 May 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With Rob Zombie's upcoming film 31 taking place in a setting known as "Murder World", you can expect to find plenty of malevolent monsters (of the human variety) around every corner, as evidenced in the latest still from the film, which shows someone who looks like they came from Dr. Frankenstein's lab.

Revealed by Bloody Disgusting, the new still from Rob Zombie's 31 features a very memorable member of the Murder World proceedings. Though the official cast member and character in the still haven't been announced, there are physical similarities between this character and Richard Brake's Doom-Head, who was revealed in a shadow-shrouded still in March, so they very well could be one and the same.

Zombie's 31 was recently acquired for North American distribution by Alchemy. No release date has been revealed at this time, but stay tuned to Daily Dead for further updates on Zombie's latest film. »

Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

27 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

Flashback: Richard Linklater's Experimental Approach in 1995's 'Before Sunrise' Was Sundance's Real Breakout Hit

27 January 2015 9:10 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Most Richard Linklater fans can tell you which film – and sometimes which scene – ignited their enthusiasm for the director, whether it was 1991’s influential indie Slacker, 1993’s high-school classic Dazed and Confused or 2003’s comedy School of Rock.

But, it all began with Before Sunrise.

Released 20 years ago this week, Before Sunrise boasted fresh-faced actors and a swoon-worthy premise: An American man (Ethan Hawke) meets a French woman (Julie Delpy) on a train, and they spend one magical evening together in Vienna. That alone was enough to attract my 17-year-old self to the theater, as was the case with many of my peers.

News: Julie & Ethan Reunite 'Before Midnight'

The true magic of Before Sunrise, however, lies beyond the picturesque scenery and smitten gazes. Building upon his gift for crafting relatable and engrossing conversation, Linklater’s characters feel fully formed, discussing everything from philosophy and religion to love and their hopes for the future.
