Exclusive Interview: Muna Otaru Talks The Keeping Room

4 October 2015 4:34 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In The Keeping Room, we witness the true feature film arrival of actress Muna Otaru – and it is a powerful, seismic experience. The movie is a stinging, desolate look at the American Civil War from the perspective of three women, struggling to survive together on a farm in the south. Far from being a period drama, however, this is a deeply unsettling home invasion horror film which uses its Civil War setting to muse on universal themes – including gender roles, race, violence against women, and the devastating effect of armed conflict.

In the role of Mad – one of the three women at the centre of this horror story – Muna Otaru delivers a performance so brilliantly crafted that her warm presence envelops the entire narrative in a way that is rarely captured in cinema. Mad is a former slave to the family of Augusta (Brit Marling) and Louise (Hailee Steinfeld) – sisters »

30 September 2015 1:07 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

NBC’s “The Voice” returned for Season 9 this month, and the show is still finding brand-old reality tropes to infuse fatigue into the competition series. After impressing two of the show’s four judges with a blind auditions performance of “Seven Bridges Road,” Jubal Lee Young seized the opportunity to propose to his girlfriend and singing partner Amanda Preslar on stage. Borrowing a page from the playbooks of “X-Factor,” “American Idol,” “America’s Got Talent” and just about every other reality series ever, the show leveraged the emotional moment for manufactured surprise. “What just happened?” asked coach Blake Shelton, as »

New Projects: ‘The Comedian’, Prince Charming, and Muppets

10 July 2015 7:52 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Robert De Niro has been gearing up what’s been known as his “passion project” for some time, a film called The Comedian in which he would play an insult comic modeled off Don Rickles. De Niro has now secured a director for the film, Taylor Hackford (Ray, Parker). Deadline exclusively reported that Hackford came on board after director Mike Newell departed due to scheduling, and that casting for the film is now underway.

Roast comic Jeff Ross wrote all of De Niro’s stand-up material for the film, and the screenplay was penned by Art Linson, who previously wrote De Niro’s What Just Happened and has produced everything from Fight Club to The Untouchables to Into the Wild. It’ll be interesting to see De Niro take on the role, because it’s perhaps most closely similar to his underrated, almost cult performance as Rupert Pupkin in Martin Scorsese »

Taylor Hackford Directing Robert De Niro’s Passion Project The Comedian

7 July 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Robert De Niro is so widely respected in Hollywood that he could really do anything he wants at this stage in his career. To the Oscar winner’s credit, though, he’s not rolling over and taking easy paycheck roles all the time – for years, De Niro has been pushing to get The Comedian made, with an eye to starring in the Art Linson-penned drama. And now, he’ll finally complete that passion project, having recruited Taylor Hackford to direct the pic.

De Niro will take on the role of a self-destructive, acerbic insult comic inspired partly by comedian Don Rickles (De Niro’s co-star in Casino). It won’t be the actor’s first time playing a professional funnyman – he took on the role of aspiring comedian Rupert Pupkin to widespread acclaim in The King of Comedy.

7 July 2015 7:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Devil's Advocate" and "Proof of Life" helmer Taylor Hackford has been set to direct Cinelou's "The Comedian," the long-gestating passion project of Robert De Niro.

De Niro will play a toxic insult comic along the lines of a Don Rickles. Art Linson penned the script but Jeffrey Ross, a frequent celebrity roast guest and the writer of De Niro comedy "What Just Happened?," has penned the material that De Niro's character will spout.

Mike Newell recently signed on to the project but soon had to exit due to scheduling. Linson will produce alongside Mark Canton and Courtney Solomon. Casting is now underway and filming is slated to begin in mid-January in New York.

Robert De Niro Will Be The Comedian For Mike Newell

21 May 2015 7:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The great thing about being Robert De Niro is that any project you want to make will eventually get off the ground, even if based on your star power alone. Such is the case with The Comedian, an Art Linson-scribed drama that De Niro has been trying to make for years, first with Martin Scorsese then with Sean Penn. Now, the two-time Oscar winner is finally moving ahead with the project, having secured Donnie Brasco helmer Mike Newell to sit behind the camera.

De Niro will portray an accomplished insult comic, possibly inspired by Don Rickles. Linson previously penned Hollywood satire What Just Happened (which De Niro starred in), and he’ll also be producing here. Interestingly enough, the stand-up material was written by Jeffrey Ross, best known for his digs during Comedy Central and Friars Club celebrity roasts.

2015 is proving to be an unusually fruitful year for the veteran actor, »

Wamg’s Conversation with Composer Junkie Xl On His Spectacular Mad Max: Fury Road Score

13 May 2015 2:32 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Director George Miller has triumphantly brought to the screen Mad Max: Fury Road and it’s awesome. With its rich dimension and exhilarating ride, this is the film that so many have been waiting for.

It’s 45 years after the fall of the world. There is no rule of law, no power grids, no water, and no mercy. In “Mad Max: Fury Road,” civilization is a memory, and only to a few. The world’s great economies have fallen into dust, the coastal cities have been erased, and in the wake of wars for water and oil, food is scarce and air is poison.

What’s left of humanity roams the Wasteland in wild tribes or clings to survival at the foot of the Citadel, a fortress spun into a cave system where water is pumped from the only aquifer for miles around. By controlling the essentials, the Citadel and its allies, »

1 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

ABC’s Once Upon a Time threw curveballs at two frequently tested romances, by revealing that Zelena (as “Marian”) conceived Robin’s baby, while Rumple wore his (er, Belle’s) heart on his sleeve during a very tender moment.

Elsewhere, Emma reunited with childhood pal Lily, who it turns out is wholly aware of her fantastical lineage, and thus has a bone to pick with the Charmings.

Once co-creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis previewed for TVLine this Sunday’s penultimate Season 4 episode (ABC, 8/7c), which also marks the return of Barbara Hershey as Cora.

Lena Dunham Wants to Make a ‘Girls’ Movie — When She’s 40

21 April 2015 12:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Like “Sex and the City” and “Entourage,” HBO’s “Girls” could be headed to the big screen after the series wraps, Lena Dunham revealed in a new Variety profile.

But fans may need to wait a decade (or more) to see Hannah get the multiplex treatment. “I have fantasies of us all coming back and making a movie when we’re 40,” Dunham tells Variety in this week’s Power of Women cover story. “I think we’d want to wait long enough for something to have really gone down.”

Dunham spoke to Variety just as she was about to begin shooting season 5, and offered a few secrets about where the show is headed.

She revealed that “Girls” will resume after a jump in time. “It’s not a year,” Dunham says. “It’s just months. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we jumped forward to 2022, and everyone was in weird power suits of future fashion? »

Morgan is standing in for Ben Shephard on the ITV breakfast show this week.

"It's like sitting next to a mini tornado and I think whenever anyone gets interviewed by him, they feel like they've been through a tornado!

"You should see the looks on guests' faces after they've been interviewed by Piers. They're like, 'What just happened?!'"

Britain's Got Talent Calum Scott: 'My sister will get her opportunity'

Britain's Got Talent star Calum Scott has revealed that he expects his sister to be successful with her singing in the future.

Scott - who won Simon Cowell's golden buzzer after his cover of Robyn's 'Dancing On My Own' - had to audition just after his sister Jade had received four nos from the judges.

"It was tough because Jade's my inspiration for singing anyway, so for me to hear from Simon that she was a bedroom singer – I mean, I don't agree," he told Digital Spy today. "My sister is a brilliant singer. She was really, really nervous – I could see that she was so shook up by the nerves.

"And like I said to her afterwards, I've got four years on her. She's got four years to get her confidence levels up and get a handle on her nerves and things like that. She's got all »

'The Bachelor': The 22 Cattiest, Most Ridiculous & Wtf Quotes of the Night!

2 February 2015 11:40 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

"Hey hey hey hey—the party starts in Santa Fe!"

And with that deranged cheerleader chant, this week's episode of The Bachelor moved the eleven remaining women out of the L.A. mansion, and over to the beautiful town of Santa Fe, New Mexico. (A town that, according to Megan, is out of the country.)

The cattiness between the ladies rose to an all-time high on Monday's episode. From Kelsey's deluded infatuation with her own romantic tragedy, to Ashley I.'s general hatred of each and every girl in the competition, and the abrupt return of yet another previously eliminated contestant — the claws were most certainly out tonight.

Long story, short — The Bachelor was straight-up bonkers this week, and we at ETonline think that there is no better way to recap the crazy than with the ladies' own quotes, and a few winning observations from Bachelor Chris Soules.

Behold, the 26 cattiest »
