With John Cameron Mitchell, Charlie Kaufman, Rebecca Miller, Patty Jenkins, Kenneth Lonergan and more recently, Barry Jenkins recently moving out of the so called “inactive” period, we decided to compile a list of the top ten American filmmakers who, for the most part, we’ve lost sight of and would like to see get back in the director’s chair again. Most of the filmmakers listed below have gone well over half a decade without a substantial movement in this category. Here is
I really, really wanted to chirp Ian ruthlessly, but I didn't have to. He did enough damage himself. I understand that it doesn't feel good when feelings aren't reciprocated, but try and exit with some dignity. I have nothing more to say about Ian; I've already wasted enough time on him. Men Tell All should be fun.

Ahead of network upfronts next week, a number of channels put in notices for pickups and cancellations over the week. Fox’s Backstrom, CBS’ Battle Creek, The McCarthys, and Stalker, NBC’s Marry Me, One Big Happy, State of Affairs, and Constantine all became one-season shows. NBC’s About a Boy also got a cancellation notice this week, as did Fox’s The Mindy Project and The Following.
Fox has also given series orders to Minority Report and Lucifer, while CBS has picked up Supergirl. Among returning shows, The Simpsons got a two-season renewal, while IFC renewed Comedy Bang! Bang!, and The Playstation Network gave its original series Powers a second season. NBC also renewed The Mysteries of Laura and The Night Shift, as well as the sitcom Undateable, whose entire third season will consist of live episodes.
On the other hand, if the series is handled well it could easily take off like a rocket when released, so maybe this is a good time to tell you to make sure you know what everyone will be talking about.
Following Quentin Coldwater, the story will unfortunately be compared to the Harry Potter series by anyone who only gets the most cursory summary of what happens. It’s an edgier, darker spin on the general idea of going to school and learning magic really does exist, and the series of books tackle themes that are not only more relevant to adults, but in ways that create a far richer world.
A continuous stream of leaked information continues to be made public in the wake of the scandal, from Leonardo DiCaprio being labelled 'despicable' in an email chain to producer Scott Rudin calling Angelina Jolie a "minimally talented spoiled brat".
Wahlberg has now told Access Hollywood that executives should always address issues with talent face-to-face.
"Nothing is private these days and if you have something to say about somebody, you know, be able to say it to their face," he explained.
The actor went on to say: "I personally - because now I'm on the other side of things where I'm, as an actor and as a producer, I'm on the other side of the casting table - I've been in the room with studio heads and people who make real decisions who are often
"Nothing is private these days and if you have something to say about somebody, you know, be able to say it to their face," Mark told Access Hollywood at the junket for his new movie, "The Gambler," when asked about the Sony hack.
The 43-year-old actor said he's seen executives speak very bluntly about talent when making decisions, so he wasn't shocked to see harsh opinions in leak e-mails.

Based on the British show, The Syndicate, it’s the story of a group of coworkers at a gas station who have been playing the same numbers for years, and fear for the jobs as rumors abound that the station is closing. All with their own monetary woes, which are laid out for us in great detail, this rag tag assortment of characters is about to find out that there are a lot of problems that come with their sudden riches.
The main trouble this show is going to have is in the translation of format.
At the Comic-Con Lionsgate Panel, the big news may have been about Hunger Games 2: Catching Fire, but there was also a few updates on next year’s horror/sci-fi project I, Frankenstein. Written and directed by Stuart Beattie, the film is based on a graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux. Star Aaron Eckhart, who stars as the monster—who is named Adam in this version—gave an in-depth interview to IMDb.
IMDb: …so this role seems like the complete opposite from what I’d expect you to play.
Eckhart: It’s all the same stuff which is story. If I broke this down, it’s the same way I broke down Chad (In the Company of Men)or any other characters. It’s about a man who is unwanted,

Aaron Eckhart's day began as they all do: an hour in the gym, then same again with a cigar. Jetlag cannot disrupt that, snow can throw no spanners. "I was outside at 6am smoking with my hood on, watching everyone come to work, freezing my ass off. That's how dedicated I am."
Then breakfast, another cigar, four hours of interviews and lunch in his room, Moby on the deck, steak on the plate. "I ordered it medium rare. I got it medium beyond." Did he finish it? "Oh yeah, every little bit. I am a carnivore." Then another cigar. He'd like to be puffing on one right now. At least three more will get sucked before he sleeps.
"They're excellent to study to,
