After being one of the most beloved writer/directors of the 1970s and 80s, Woody Allen continued his success in the 90’s where five of his ten films received some form of Academy Award nomination. However, by this point critics had started to question his process of writing and directing a film every year and suggested it was beginning to take a toll on the quality of the end product.
Popular consensus on the quality of his work also declined as the millennium turned. It took until 2011’s ‘Midnight in Paris’ for one of his films to be universally regarded as a return to form. Not least because it also saw Allen himself win Best Original Screenplay at the Academy Awards for the first time since ‘Hannah and Her Sisters’ in 1987. In financial terms, it became his most successful picture to date, showing that the cinema-going public loved it too. »

It's almost a decade since Scarlett Johansson became a major star thanks to Sofia Coppola's "Lost In Translation," and the actress continues to confound expectations; her diverse pick of roles of late has included a Cameron Crowe rom-com, superhero epic "The Avengers," playing Janet Leigh in "Hitchcock" and, coming up, playing a cannibalistic alien in Jonathan Glazer's "Under The Skin." And now she's taking another curve; she' s going to direct. It's been in the works for a while, but it was confirmed this morning that Johansson will direct an adaptation of Truman Capote's 'lost' first novel "Summer Crossing." The film, which will shoot in the first half of 2014, focuses on a 17-year-old girl who falls in love with a Jewish parking attendant in New York in 1945. Johansson commented "Several years ago I began working alongside the Capote estate and writer Tristine Skylar to adapt 'Summer Crossing, »

Scarlett Johansson could have easily spent the last 10 years of her life resting on her laurels as a sex symbol and favorite muse of directors like Woody Allen (and now, maybe, Joss Whedon). But the actress has done a pretty impressive job of stretching herself, whether recording an album, helping earn an Oscar nomination for the original song from Chasing Ice, doing her best Janet Leigh impression in last year's Hitchcock, and making us believe her so much as an action heroine in The Avengers that we basically begged her to play Wonder Woman. Now she's working to develop her skills behind the camera too, finally ready to make her feature directing debut on Summer's Crossing, an adaptation of Truman Capote's novel. She picked up the rights a full year and a half ago and today THR announces from Cannes that the international rights are being sold at the »

"There's an interview where he talks about meat and how the flavour is limited; blood is what actually makes it tasty. Once you chew the blood away, it's just tissue, it doesn't keep giving."
As soon as showrunner Bryan Fuller found out he was going to be bringing Hannibal Lecter to TV, he knew exactly who he wanted to talk to. Not author Thomas Harris or Anthony Hopkins, but José Andrés, a Spanish chef who trained with El Bulli's Ferran Adrià and popularised a similar strand of show-stopping molecular gastronomy on Us TV cooking shows. They met at a party, Fuller explained what he was working on, and Andrés immediately decided to jump on board.
"I asked him what can you eat on a human being," says Fuller, "and he said, 'Everything is edible. »

The Look of Love, 2013
Directed by Michael Winterbottom.
The life of Paul Raymond, the controversial entrepreneur who became Britain's richest man.
With Michael Winterbottom at the helm and Steve Coogan in the leading role, The Look of Love was always going to be compared to 24 Hour Party People. They both follow influential men in their industries, they both contain sex and drugs and they both share the same issues: they're too long, they're too padded and, at times, they're both dull.
The main problem with The Look of Love is that not all of Paul Raymond's life was interesting so when you show those parts the film just comes to a grinding halt. The amount of padding is astounding. We know that Paul Raymond was considered to a 'porn king' (he was more of »
