Female Screenwriter Tops 2014 Black List

17 December 2014 6:25 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here to share some of the best unproduced screenplays written by women (according to industry insiders).

The Black List, now in its tenth iteration, compiles an annual list of the most liked unproduced screenplays. Since 2004, some of the screenplays featured on here have gone on to become Oscar-winning films like Argo, Juno, and The King’s Speech, as well as modest successes like Lars and the Real Girl, Charlie Wilson’s War and 50/50. Even current Oscar-favorite The Imitation Game topped the list in 2011. Other titles like Recount, Things We Lost in the Fire, The Beaver and Snow White and the Huntsman have been featured. That is to say, it’s quite a mixed bag (this year includes a screenplay for Wonka, for example, “a dark, reimagining of the Willy Wonka story beginning in World War II and culminating with his takeover of the chocolate factory,” which… well, to each »

Newcomer Ruby Barnhill Lands Lead In Steven Spielberg’s The Bfg

16 December 2014 8:07 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After a lengthy search, Steven Spielberg has found the star of his upcoming Roald Dahl adaptation The Bfg in British newcomer Ruby Barnhill.

The 10-year-old actress, who has never appeared in a feature film before but has a role on the upcoming BBC children’s series Four O’Clock Club, will take on the part of Sophie, a young orphan from London who is befriended by a Big Friendly Giant and whisked away to the magical Giant Country.

“After a lengthy search, I feel Roald Dahl himself would have found Ruby every bit as marvelous as we do,” said Spielberg in an official statement. “We have discovered a wonderful Sophie in Ruby Barnhill.”

Barnhill herself expressed enthusiasm at the opportunity to play Sophie, stating, “Sophie gets to go on this wonderful adventure and I’m so excited that I get to play her. I feel incredibly lucky and I’m so happy. »

Keira Knightley Found Herself in the Middle of a Hot Brit Sandwich

14 November 2014 5:41 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Keira Knightley became the envy of women everywhere when she found herself in the middle of a British man sandwich at the Hollywood Film Awards on Friday night in La. She sidled up to Eddie Redmayne and Benedict Cumberbatch during the show to pose for photos with her fellow Brits. The actress was at the award show to be honored with the supporting actress award for her role in The Imitation Game, which also stars Benedict. Interestingly enough, Benedict and Eddie have worked together in the past as they both had small roles in 2008's The Other Boleyn Girl. While all three actors are on friendly terms in the tight-knit British actor community, many expect Eddie and Benedict to be lead contenders for the best actor award in the upcoming award season. (Eddie has been winning a lot of praise for his lead role in The Theory of Everything.) »

Hayward commented: “Caitlin Moran is the wittiest writer on the planet and her creation, Johanna Morrigan stands alongside Elizabeth Bennet and Bridget Jones as one of the great female literary icons.

Ladies and gentlemen, Eddie Redmayne is about to explode

6 November 2014 1:25 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

An actor or actress can be on the periphery of stardom for what seems like an eternity before the right role comes along at the right time and transforms his or her career. Do you know how many times you probably saw Michael Fassbender on screen before he technically broke out four years ago? Did you know Benedict Cumberbatch had been a working actor for almost a decade before he finally got Hollywood's attention after "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and "Sherlock" (2011)? Enter the latest star on the verge of global recognition: Eddie Redmayne.   Ironically a good friend of Cumberbatch's, the London native has been a fixture in front of moviegoers since he earned his big break starring alongside Matt Damon and Angelina Jolie in Robert De Niro's "The Good Shepherd" (2006). And, he’s actually worked pretty consistently since, starting with "Elizabeth: The Golden Age" (2007), starring as Kristen Stewart’s »

Back to her pre-baby figure and showing off her shorter ‘do, the ScarJo was all smiles.

Scarlett Johansson Shows Off Tiny, Fit Figure in First Post-Baby Public Appearance—See the Pic!

4 November 2014 8:23 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's hard to believe Scarlett Johansson gave birth to daughter Rose Dorothy Dauriac just two months ago! The 29-year-old mother of one showed off her slim, fit post-baby body Monday while hosting a screening of The Theory of Everything at the Crosby Hotel in New York. Sandwiched between Eddie Redmayne, her co-star in 2008's The Other Boleyn Girl, and singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright, the new mom was all smiles at her first public event since becoming a mom. As you can see, Scarlett looked quite petite in a chic black-and-white patterned dress, which she paired with strappy heels and natural-looking makeup. She's clearly got genetics working in her favor, but the new mom's also been hitting the gym »

How Eddie Redmayne Became Stephen Hawking in ‘The Theory of Everything’

28 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Eddie Redmayne always knew that the toughest critic of “The Theory of Everything” would be the man he portrays onscreen — Stephen Hawking. The 72-year-old physicist recently made the trek from his home in Cambridge, England, to Working Title’s production offices in London to watch the biopic based on his life. Hawking’s longtime battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Als) has left him a quadriplegic, and he speaks through a computer-generated voice amplifier. Before the screening, he met Redmayne. “He took a while to type something, then said, ‘I’ll let you know what I think — good or otherwise,’ ” Redmayne recalls. “I said, ‘Stephen, if it’s otherwise, you don’t need to go into details.’ ”

After the lights came up, a nurse wiped a tear from Hawking’s eye. He called the film “broadly true,” and even celebrated with the film’s director James Marsh and screenwriter Anthony McCarten »

Steven Spielberg Begins Principal Photography On Untitled Cold War Spy Thriller Starring Tom Hanks

6 October 2014 1:16 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Three-time Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg has begun principal photography on an untitled Cold War spy thriller starring two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks (“Forrest Gump,” “Philadelphia”).

The production, which also stars Tony Award winner Mark Rylance (“Intimacy,” “The Other Boleyn Girl”), Academy Award nominee Amy Ryan (“Gone Baby Gone,” “Win Win”) and Academy Award nominee Alan Alda (“M*A*S*H,” “Crimes and Misdemeanors”), will shoot on location in New York and Berlin.

Production in New York was possible due to support from state and local film agencies, and in Berlin, through the support of several film funds.

The film is the true story of James Donovan, an attorney who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible mission to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.

Filming Begins on Steven Spielberg’s Untitled Cold War Spy Thriller Starring Tom Hanks

6 October 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

DreamWorks and Disney have announced that principal photography has commenced on Steven Spielberg's untitled Cold War spy thriller starring Tom Hanks.  As we previously reported, the film tells the true story of James Donovan, an attorney who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible mission to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.  The film will also star Mark Rylance, Amy Ryan, and Alan Alda, and will shoot on location in New York and Berlin.  Following Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can, and The Terminal, this will mark Spielberg's fourth film collaboration with Hanks, and hopefully it will be a fruitful one, especially since they're working from a script by the Coen Brothers.  Hanks and Spielberg's most recent collaboration was as executive producers on HBO's miniseries The Pacific.
