Emily Mortimer Will Star In Spectral Alongside James Badge Dale

7 July 2014 12:09 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though her last big screen role was in 2011′s Hugo, Emily Mortimer has been keeping plenty busy on the small screen, starring on two HBO series, The Newsroom and Doll & Em, the latter of which she created and wrote. Now, we’re hearing that the talented actress will be making her way back to the big screen with a starring role in Legendary’s upcoming supernatural military thriller, Spectral.

Mortimer is set to star as a CIA mission leader in the movie, which is described as a supernatural Black Hawk Down and focuses on “a special-ops team that fights supernatural beings that have taken over a European city.” Dale, known for supporting roles in The Grey, Iron Man 3 and World War Z, boarded the project a few months back as a researcher.

It was previously reported that Spectral would find the special-ops team combatting a threat to New York City, »

'Bond 24' Production Delayed Due to Script Work from Purvis & Wade

27 June 2014 9:48 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Something's amiss in England. There's a report going around that the next Bond movie, currently untitled but known as Bond 24, is having a bit of early pre-production trouble that may end up delaying the film. The Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye, who is reliable with this kind of info, says there's a "polite turmoil" behind-the-scenes at Eon Productions, and subsequently the script is getting reworked before they move forward on production. They're bringing back co-writers Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, who have a long history with the Bond franchise, to rewrite the original script by John Logan, of Skyfall and Oscar nominated for Hugo. We've been covering updates on Bond 24 for the last few years, waiting for it to get into production to follow up the sensational Skyfall. At the moment, Sam Mendes will return to direct, as well as Daniel Craig as Agent 007 and Ralph Fiennes as the new M. »

The Academy Invites 271 New Members for 2014

26 June 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong'o among 271 Academy invitees

26 June 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years a Slave were two of the 271 artists and industry leaders invited to become members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which determines nominations and winners at the annual Oscars. The entire list of Academy membership—which numbers about 6,000—isn’t public information so the annual invitation list is often the best indication of the artists involved in the prestigious awards process. It’s worth noting that invitations need to be accepted in order for artists to become members; some artists, like two-time Best Actor winner Sean Penn, have declined membership over the years. »

Josh Hutcherson, Lupita Nyong'o, Pharrell and 268 others invited to join the Academy

26 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »

Disney's The Jungle Book Directed by Jon Favreau Casts Sir Ben Kingsley as Bagheera

25 June 2014 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

Academy Award-winning actor Ben Kingsley (Iron Man 3, Hugo) has been cast as the voice of Bagheera in Disney’s upcoming The Jungle Book. Directed by Jon Favreau (Chef, Iron Man) from a script by Justin Marks, The Jungle Book combines live action and animated filmmaking. Loosely based on Rudyard Kipling's book of the same name, Disney's The Jungle Book tells the story of a young boy Mowgli who was raised by animals in the jungle including the panther Bagheera and big lovable bear Baloo. When tiger Shere Khan threatens to return to their part of the jungle, the other animals decide that Mowgli must return to the man village in order to ensure his safety.

The Young and Prodigious Ts Spivet review dazzling tale of a wandering star

14 June 2014 4:04 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Innocence and intelligence animate this visually compelling film about a child genius

Jean-Pierre Jeunet's adaptation of Reif Larsen's book The Selected Works of Ts Spivet takes gleeful visual pleasure in the tale of a young genius from Montana who runs away to Washington to receive a Smithsonian Institute award after apparently inventing a perpetual motion machine. Like Martin Scorsese's Hugo, which also featured a young boy at large in an automated world, Jeunet's poignantly playful film uses self-conscious/aware 3D as a mechanical throwback a way into a lost world of machines (and situations), the complex workings of which are always on view. Thus, while Scorsese's stereoscopic adventure explored the birth of the moving image (remember, 3D is as old as cinema itself), Jeunet harks back to his own experiments with a View-Master as an eight-year-old, cutting and rearranging frames to construct his first homemade movies, uncovering in »

Taormina Film Festival: Gathering Place of Legends, Stars and Industry Players

13 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As part of the Roman Empire, Taormina was renowned for its fine wine and high-quality marble. Today the picturesque Sicilian town, with its sweeping view over the Strait of Messina, is best known for the film festival that bears its name — Italy’s oldest — that over the years has attracted such cinema legends as Marcello Mastroianni, Marlon Brando, Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant and John Huston.

This month the Taormina Film Festival celebrates its 60th anni by honoring the work of women in the movies, and female movie stars will play a prominent role in the festivities. The fest’s subtitle for 2014 is “60 years of women and their impact.”

“Women have contributed a lot to the movie business, and sometimes they are not as appreciated as men, and festivals forget to celebrate them,” says Tiziana Rocca, Taormina fest’s general manager.

Among the actresses who will be accepting honors at Taormina: Claudia Cardinale, »

First Image from the Set of The Legend of Barney Thomson

Actor Robert Carlyle is making his directorial debut on the new horror comedy The Legend of Barney Thomson (formerly The Long Midnight of Barney Thomson), and we have the first image from the set for you. Check it out!

Myriad Pictures announced Tuesday that principal photography has begun in the UK on the darkly humorous film which will star two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks, Sense and Sensibility), Ray Winstone (Snow White and the Huntsman, The Departed, Hugo), and Carlyle, who will also play the title role.

Q&A: Kerry Brougher on How to Make an Academy Museum

9 June 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In his first interview since being named director of the Academy Museum, Kerry Brougher outlined the broad strokes of how he and executives of the Motion Picture Academy envision the organization’s planned movie museum. Brougher, seated at the Academy’s temporary offices at the historic May Co. building in mid-Wilshire, which will house the new museum when it opens in 2017, points to a framed photo of Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo” on the wall. He says that in exploratory talks, several people have mentioned to him Scorsese’s 2011 film as a metaphor for the museum’s goals: The giant clock was shown in its surroundings, then the director took moviegoers inside the clock, to show how it worked. Brougher, who starts July 1, repeatedly uses the term “immersive experience” to describe the overarching theme for the museum. “A lot will come from inspiration from artists and filmmakers,” he says. “This museum »

‘Penny Dreadful’ Officially Renewed for Season 2

4 June 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Showtime’s new original program, the Gothic horror series Penny Dreadful, is a curious beast for sure, but also one that’s very much been resonating with most of the viewers who’ve been tuning in, during the month that’s passed since its premiere episode aired (read our review). The show is now confirmed to return for a second season, which show creator John Logan – Oscar-nominated screenwriter of such films as The Aviator, Hugo, and Skyfall – has already begun writing.

Penny Dreadful has, so far, lived up to its name; by offering a show that is heavy on the pulpiness and kink, in addition to embracing certain popular trends in pop culture right now (see: blending together multiple iconic characters and/or intellectual properties), ...

Q&A: ‘Penny Dreadful,’ Bond Screenwriter John Logan

14 May 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Playwright and screenwriter John Logan is known for his versatility — moving easily among pics as disparate as “Hugo,” “Rango” and “Skyfall” as well as the upcoming bigscreen adaptation of tuner “Jersey Boys.” He’s working on drafts for the next two Bond pics, but took a detour into Victorian London to birth the period horror drama “Penny Dreadful” for Showtime, with “Skyfall” helmer Sam Mendes. Logan spoke to Variety’s Cynthia Littleton about his inspiration for the show, which bowed May 11, and about the opportunity to stretch his writing muscles.

With so many film projects in the pipeline, what made you decide to stop and write eight hours of television?

I’m 52. I’m at the point in my career and my life where I want new challenges. I’ve always been agile in the things I’ve chosen. I’ve never wanted to write the same thing twice. Getting »
