'American Hustle' Producer Megan Ellison Developing TV Series on Greta Garbo & Marlene Dietrich

4 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

After making a big splash in the independent film community by personally financing, expertly producing, or generally saving art house driven films like "Killing Them Softly," "The Master," "American Hustle," and the just announced Cannes-inclusion "Foxcatcher," Megan Ellison is taking her first stab at television. Her company, Annapurna Pictures, is developing a TV series based around the lives of Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich, two iconic Old Hollywood actresses whose lives intersected not only with each other but also many important figures of the 1930s and '40s. Angela Robinson ("True Blood") and Alex Kondracke ("The L Word"), both of whom worked on HBO's "Hung," are writing the series with Ellison as executive producer and Annapurna's Stephen Feder overseeing production as well as day-to-day operations.  "We're so excited this project found a home at Annapurna," Robinson and Kondracke told Variety.

Review: 13 Sins, An Ambitious, Gruesome Thriller

5 hours ago | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Nicely-demented, Daniel Stamm's 13 Sins functions best as a gruesome thriller with a sense of humor. The deck is stacked quite heavily against Elliot (Mark Webber), a salesman who's preparing to marry his pregnant girlfriend Shelby (Rutina Wesley, from True Blood). Elliot is fired, cruelly and unexpectedly, by his arrogant, macho boss. That means Elliot will no longer be able to care financially for his mentally-disabled brother Tom (Devon Graye). To add to Elliot's financial and emotional woes, his bitter, racist father (Tom Bower) is about to be evicted from an assisted living facility. Elliot feels he has no choice but to move his Caucasian old man into the home he shares with Shelby, who is African-American, and his mentally-disabled brother. Sitting alone in his...

Will Anna Paquin be showing up in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ after all?

19 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Fans who watched the final trailer for "X-Men: Days of Future Past" through to the end credits may have noticed the appearance of a somewhat surprising name: Anna Paquin, whom director Bryan Singer revealed in December had been cut from the Fox sequel because her “sequence became extraneous.” While he expressed hope that Rogue’s scene might pop up as a DVD extra, it turns out the fan-favorite mutant will show up in theaters after all, if only briefly. Spotting Paquin’s credit, BuzzFeed contacted a Fox representative, who confirmed her inclusion in the film: “Essentially, [it’s] a cameo.” Perhaps better known now for her turn as Sookie Stackhouse in HBO’s "True Blood", Paquin played a prominent role in the original X-Men movie trilogy, even if fandom seemed split on her performance as Rogue. With this news, Paquin once again joins a sprawling cast that includes Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, »

Ellison will executive produce. Annapurna’s Stephen Feder will be the executive overseeing day-to-day development and production.

Robinson and Kondracke are both repped by Wme. The deal »

TV Show About Greta Garbo And Marlene Dietrich Planned

22 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures has earned a reputation for helping to fund films that other companies weren’t willing to risk, like Spike Jonze’s Her, Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master and Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty. The company is now looking to get into television, setting up an untitled project about Hollywood icons Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo.Annapurna has True Blood writer Angela Robinson and The L Word’s Alex Kondracke scripting the project, which is mostly being kept under wraps in terms of content and where it might end up. That's not surprising, since the project doesn’t yet have a network or channel involved.But we can imagine there being considerable interest in a series that would delve into the lives of two such fascinating screen legends, including their rivalry and the circles in which they mixed during Hollywood’s Golden Age.

'True Blood' star Amelia Rose Blaire talks final season (and being turned by Eric) -- Listen!

16 April 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The stars of True Blood are halfway through filming their final season (which premieres June 22 on HBO), and according to Amelia Rose Blaire, who plays Willa, it’s already a “jaw-dropper.” While she she’s predictably tight-lipped on what’s to come, she will say Willa comes into her own as a vampire with Tara (Rutina Wesley) as her teacher, and that she’d like Sookie to end up single. (If she had to root for someone, it would be Bill or Eric. Sorry, Alcide.)

Anna Paquin Back In ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’

16 April 2014 6:38 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It was reported earlier this year that Anna Paquin, one if the main stars of the original trioligy, had been cut from the latest X-men film. During the edit of X-men: Days Of Future Past, director Bryan Singer confessed that due to time constraints he has unfortunately had to cut the only scene to star Paquin’s mutant alter-ego Rogue. It would seem that something has changed though as Fox have confirmed that she will make an appearance albiet in a much smaller cameo role.

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed the True Blood actresses name in the credits of the final trailer. If you didn’t then why not re-watch it here and see for yourself.

Considering the time-travel element of the story that will essentially bridge Singer’s branch to the Matthew Vaughn’s, it was not at all surprising that someone got cut. Let’s just »

Being Human: Fourth & Final Season Bids Fine Farewell to Beloved Monster Roomies [Review - ★★★☆]

10 April 2014 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

After four seasons, SyFy has decided to hit the killswitch on their Us version of the British series of the same name. Being Human was a show that always surprised me, mostly in part because of it's stellar main cast that I came to love over the years. Even when the stories were sometimes mediocre, I was still captivated by these characters and that adoration never faltered. In the series, leading everyday lives is a lot harder than it looks for three supernatural roommates – vampire Aidan, ghost Sally and werewolf Josh – who share their secrets and a Boston brownstone. Together they learn that there are fates worse than death and more to life – and the afterlife – than most "normal" humans could ever imagine. Being Human could be described as a successful mix of True Blood and Friends, »

Only Lovers Left Alive: Jim Jarmusch's Hipster Vampires Have It On Vinyl

8 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

The vampires that walk among us — and they do — are not the Twilight kind, or the True Blood kind, or even the Buffy kind. In the world of Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive, the director's most emotionally direct film since Dead Man, and maybe his finest, period, vampires are people who prefer to own their music in some tangible form rather than entrust it to some unseen librarian in the Cloud. They care about the exact age of beautiful things — silk dressing gowns, string quartets — and about how they were made. They surround themselves with stacks of books. They like to know the Latin names of flora and fauna. They stay in love for a very long time, even through periods of long separation. And though they may be youngster »

Amy and Greg Poehler talk Skarsgards, doggy bags, 'Welcome to Sweden'

8 April 2014 5:33 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It turns out that doggy bags don't necessarily translate as a concept overseas. When a reporter at the NBC summer press day recounted a story about how a friend was met with a horrified expression when asking for one in Sweden, "Welcome to Sweden" (premiering July 10) creator/executive producer/star Greg Poehler laughed. "Yeah, you don't take food home from restaurants in Sweden. We didn't put any doggy bag jokes in the show season one, but we may use it in season 2. Can we use that?" His sister Amy Poehler, who is also an executive producer of the show, got immediately to business. "Are you in the WGA?" she asked.  "Welcome to Sweden" may have some familiar faces -- Amy appears in a recurring role, Lena Olin and Patrick Duffy play parents of the main characters, while cameos from Gene Simmons, Will Ferrell and Aubrey Plaza also pop up in »
