Morning Brew - Tues. Nov. 27: Martina Navratilova to guest star on "Portlandia," Dolly Parton still denying lesbian rumors

Good morning!

What do you call your partner once you get married? I say "my wife," but apparently some lesbians call their partner their husband. Some straight people call their spouses their "partners" and confuse me so it's fine.

Guinevere Turner has adapted a sad but moving stage play into a film that need your help getting funded. Check out Facing East and see if it's something you'd donate a few bucks to.

Every year or so Dolly Parton is asked, yet again, if she's a lesbian. She just loves her Bff Judy!

Judy and I have been best friends since we were like in the third and fourth grade. We still just have a great friendship and relationship and I love her as much as I love anybody in the whole world, but we're not romantically involved. »

Nyff: Noah Baumbach Explains Why 'Frances Ha' Is Like A Paul McCartney Record & More From The Cast

21 September 2012 11:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The Noah Baumbach Fanclub was likely pretty disheartened this year. "While We're Young" had casting rumors buzzing around it, but soon went quiet (to make matters worse, he states here that it likely won't go for awhile) and his pilot for Jonathan Franzen's "The Corrections" was ultimately not picked up by HBO. But then something funny happened. Buried in the schedule for Telluride and Tiff was "Frances Ha," a brand-new feature from the "Greenberg" director, something shot on the sly with Greta Gerwig. Even better? The movie received mostly high marks and extremely positive praise. "Frances Ha" features Gerwig as the titular character, a 20-something Brooklynite with an unhealthy dependent relationship with her best friend Sophie (Mickey Sumner). But when the dynamic duo split after Sophie acquires the Tribeca apartment of her dreams, Frances finds herself unmoored in the Big Apple -- her dance company »

Tiff 2012: Simon’s 30 most anticipated films

30 August 2012 2:48 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Toronto International Film Festival is a ludicrous bounty of cinematic riches, showcasing hundreds of potentially amazing films both old and new. That it’s all crammed into only 10 days means it’s too much for any one mere mortal to even get a proper grasp of. With that “problem” in mind, here’s a painstakingly narrowed list of 30 to try and catch.

Antiviral

David Cronenberg’s son Brandon’s first feature, Antiviral may well sate the appetites of Cronenberg fans who lament the director’s late-career turn into (relatively) middlebrow fare. The creepy teaser promises eerie, creeping body horror, artfully executed, of the sort Daddy used to make.

The ABCs of Death

Horror anthologies are always a tantalizing prospect, but rarely do the segments come together to form a satisfying whole; usually, a weak effort or two sours the bunch. The ABCs of Death might well be the most ambitious film of its kind, »

'Entourage' Movie News, 'Curb' On Hold & More HBO Scoop

1 August 2012 3:07 PM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

HBO co-presidents of programming Richard Plepler and Michael Lombardo kicked off HBO's portion of the Television Critics Association press tour Wednesday, with news of a Rolling Stones documentary movie, more scoop on Larry David's latest project for the network and much, much more.

Now, some updates on upcoming projects, shows that are now dead (for real this time) and, yes, it wouldn't be an HBO TCA session without an update on the "Deadwood" movie.

The "Entourage" movie

What's the status of the "Entourage" movie? "Doug [Ellin], as of this week, is on page 65. He's excited about it," Lombardo said -- but it's not a done deal just yet. "After we take a look at the script ... we still have to make deals with the cast and see if this is something we want to do."

Scott Rudin and HBO have ended their exclusive deal, HBO told TheWrap.

HBO And Scott Rudin End Their Deal

25 July 2012 6:22 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: I love meta-producer Scott Rudin because he always makes news. (And gives everyone around him heart palpitations every time I call.) So here’s the latest: HBO and Rudin have ended their exclusive deal. Rudin’s reps tell me the reason is so that Scott can have “more flexibility” during his first foray into television. ”You know how full they are. He wants to sell elsewhere.” But another source emails me this, which Rudin’s camp strenuously denies: “HBO is so tired of Scott Rudin’s antics that they terminated his overall deal yesterday.” The end follows such Rudin dissapointments as HBO in May deciding not to go forward with the Noah Baumbach/Rudin pilot The Corrections. Based on Jonathan Franzen’s acclaimed book, it boasted one of most star-studded casts ever assembled on television: Chris Cooper, Dianne Wiest, Ewan McGregor, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Rhys Ifans and Greta Gerwig. »

First Look at Greta Gerwig in Noah Baumbach’s Secret Film, Frances Ha

25 July 2012 7:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It’s not often we get to see big-name directors fly under the radar and shoot an entire film in secrecy, but when they do, you know it’s likely to be brilliant.

Not only will Joss Whedon be unveiling his micro-budgeted adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, Noah Baumbach will also be treating us to a project that we only discovered yesterday, when the official line-up was announced.

Following that wonderful surprise, we’ve now got our first look at the wonderful Greta Gerwig in the lead, who co-wrote the script with Baumbach, and stars alongside Mickey Sumner (The Borgias).

“An aspiring dancer (co-writer Greta Gerwig) moves to New York City and becomes caught up in a whirlwind of flighty fair-weather friends, diminishing fortunes and career setbacks, in the new film from director Noah Baumbach (Margot at the Wedding, Greenberg).”

Noah Baumbach Didn’t Finish Corrections Pilot

10 July 2012 10:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

How much longer are we going to talk about The Corrections TV show that wasn't? A little longer. HBO passed on the show in May, and now Noah Baumbach, who was an executive producer and director for the show, explains a little more about what happened. "We shot a pilot, but we didn't shoot a whole pilot, even," Baumbach tells IndieWire. "It was never finished," he says. Oh, that is weird bummer. Not unlike The Corrections. »

Noah Baumbach Says 'The Corrections' Is Unlikely To See The Light Of Day, 'While We're Young' Won't Be Next

10 July 2012 7:03 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

HBO might be turning into something of a safe haven for the kind of smart, adult programming that's increasingly rare in theaters, but not everything gets to make the cut. With shows like "True Blood" and "Game Of Thrones" becoming long-running hits, and newcomers like "Girls" and "The Newsroom" getting second season pickups, there's only so much room on the schedule, and it means that even high-profile shows aren't necessarily getting the go-ahead. Perhaps the highest-profile casualty of late has been Noah Baumbach's "The Corrections," an adaptation of the greatly acclaimed novel by Jonathan Franzen, which would have featured a cast including Ewan McGregor, Chris Cooper, Dianne Wiest, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Greta Gerwig, Rhys Ifans and, potentially, LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy. But HBO ultimately passed on the show, and it seems like any chance of it reemerging at another network, or even at a film »

LCD Soundsystem star James Murphy: 'I was going to star in HBO series'

9 July 2012 3:32 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

LCD Soundsystem singer James Murphy has revealed that he was in talks to star in a HBO series. Murphy would have provided the music and potentially played a lead role in The Corrections - based on Jonathan Franzen's 2001 novel - but the project was dropped by the cable network. "I was potentially going to play [the character of] Gary," Murphy told The New York Times. "I was excited about it, but I don't think I was going to get it." The Corrections pilot was directed and adapted by Noah Baumbach (Greenberg), a personal friend of Murphy. The (more) »

LCD Soundsystem Frontman James Murphy Could Have Taken A Major Role In Noah Baumbach's 'The Corrections'

6 July 2012 12:19 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We were pretty much champing at the bit to see "The Corrections," an adaptation of the book by Jonathan Franzen, acclaimed by many as one of the greatest Great American Novels of the last couple of decades. Under the shepherding hand of super-producer Scott Rudin, with a home at quality-factory HBO, writer-director Noah Baumbach ("The Squid And The Whale," "Greenberg"), practically a perfect fit for the material, was bringing it together. And he rounded up a top-flight cast including Chris Cooper, Dianne Wiest, Ewan McGregor, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Greta Gerwig and Rhys Ifans, with the prospect that the show would run for four seasons of ten episodes each. But sadly, it never came to pass; Baumbach directed a two-hour pilot, and the network liked it, but ultimately thought that it would be too tricky to translate the book's sprawling, time-hopping narrative into TV form, and passed on the show, leaving it »

James Murphy Was Maybe Going to Act in The Corrections

Today in What Might Have Been: Former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy tells the New York Times that he was in talks for Noah Baumbach's now-defunct adaptation of The Corrections. "I was potentially going to play Gary, which I was excited about. But I don't think I was going to get it. Although since it didn't happen, Noah was just like, 'Just say you got it. We didn't have another Gary.'" That counts. »

Has Cable TV Taken the Place of the Mid-Budget Indie?

5 July 2012 7:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

In May, it was announced that one of the most buzzed-about new filmmakers, Sean Durkin, would be shopping a TV series based on "The Exorcist" as his next project. Durkin’s debut feature "Martha Marcy May Marlene" was the indie to see in 2011, but the news that he was following it up with a move to the small screen didn't come as much of a surprise. Plenty of artistically gifted filmmakers who would in the past have focused on making mid-range arty indies have been shifting instead to the more domestic medium. Last year there was Todd Haynes’ "Mildred Pierce" miniseries; Lena Dunham’s comedy "Girls" and Noah Baumbach’s attempted "The Corrections" series followed not long after. More recently, Cary Fukunaga (of "Sin Nombre") signed on to direct a detective show with Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. (Of course, these are all HBO projects -- more about the other networks momentarily. »

Damon Lindelof Developing ‘The Leftovers’ For HBO

29 June 2012 3:24 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Not long ago, Lost writer and producer Damon Lindelof announced he would return to television-based projects after venturing into big screen endeavors like this summer’s Prometheus along with lending his pen to the upcoming Star Trek 2 and the beleaguered World War Z. Now, Lindelof has announced that his televison project will be to adapt Tom Perrotta’s 2011 novel The Leftovers for HBO.

As long as you overlook Noah Baumbach’s adaptation of Jonathan Franzen’s The Corrections, HBO has a history of successfully transforming best-selling novels into hit television shows, and now, with the help of Lindelof, the network is hoping to make the quasi-religious mystery of The Leftovers the next program eating up an hour of your Sunday evening.

Perrotta’s novel concerns a small town dealing with the aftermath of a Rapture-like event known ...

Damon Lindelof And Tom Perrotta Take The Leftovers To HBO

28 June 2012 9:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Damon Lindelof, co-creator and showrunner on Lost, is making a return to TV after a brief foray into writing for the big screen. This time, he’ll make the switch to cable along with novelist Tom Perrotta as they adapt Perrotta’s book, The Leftovers, for HBO. This news comes after the announcement that Lindelof had signed a three year deal with Warner Bros. Television to commit all of his time to writing for TV.

Perrotta’s novel is a sci-fi product of sorts. It tells the story of a fictional American suburb called Mapleton which carries all the trademarks of an idealised suburban landscape: beautiful people living in beautiful homes residing in an idyllic setting. But as usual, things are not what they seem. One day, millions of people disappear from the Earth while others are left behind, a collective of these leftovers are the residents of Mapleton. From there, »

Who Else Has Settled Their Beef With Oprah?

15 June 2012 10:00 AM, PDT | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

By Cristina Recino

On this week's episode of "Oprah's Next Chapter," the big O and 50 Cent finally squashed their beef. In the candid one-on-one interview, they discussed 50's tough childhood and his pledge to feed 1 billion people through the sales of his Street King energy drink.

Oprah has continuously denounced the view of women in hip-hop culture and the use of the N-word, which at one point instigated a beef between the talk show titan and the rapper. During the interview, 50 explained that he saw O’s stance as an attack on him personally. "I would see moments where you would discuss your feelings on the culture, and everything that was wrong with the culture was on my CD," 50 said. "And I was like, 'She doesn't like me.'"

At the time, 50 responded to Oprah’s stance by saying she caters to middle-aged white women and doesn't understand hip-hop culture. »

Sunday Reads: Jonathan Franzen, D’Angelo, and Moonrise Kingdom Prep

27 May 2012 1:45 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It's Sunday afternoon, or: Your last chance to read all that stuff you meant to read last week before Monday (or in this case, Tuesday) brings a new deluge of things you will want to read. Below, some of our recommendations: "What Your Favorite Wes Anderson Movie Says About You," by Richard Lawson and Jen Doll (The Atlantic Wire): Self-explanatory, really, not to mention something to contemplate going into Moonrise Kingdom. "Jonathan Franzen: The Path to Freedom," by Jonathan Franzen (Guardian): The Corrections author answers — at length — "four unpleasant questions novelists get asked," so no one ever has to ask him those again! Then, he describes the breakup of his marriage, and the challenge of combining autobiography and fiction. "Amen! (D'Angelo's Back)," by Amy Wallace (GQ): We may have already mentioned it this week, but this thorough, sometimes quite dark chronicle of D'Angelo's descent into addiction »

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard Walk Brooklyn With Baby Gloria!

3 May 2012 6:53 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard welcomed daughter Gloria Ray Sarsgaard two weeks ago, and the happy trio took a walk yesterday near their Brooklyn home. The little one was bundled up and carried on her dad Peter's chest, protected from the rain. Gloria's big sister Ramona wasn't able to join in on the fun, since it was a school day. Maggie's brother Jake was in the Big Apple around Gloria's arrival, and was seen hanging out in Manhattan last week. Aside from her growing family, Maggie's also had two big projects to focus on. Her Hysteria screened at the Tribeca Film Festival, and will be out in theaters on May 18. Maggie was also one of the stars of HBO's miniseries The Corrections, a small-screen adaptation of the Jonathan Franzen book. The network recently decided, however, not to move forward with the Noah Baumbach-directed production that was also set to star Ewan McGregor. »
