Rich pickings: how Hollywood rivals will profit from Weinstein's downfall

20 October 2017 6:20 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Competitors are moving to snap up the imploding independent studio’s back catalogue, but the assets cannot be fully valued until the scandal subsides

The death knell may have sounded over The Weinstein Company (TWC) name but Hollywood rivals believe the business has a secure future – without its disgraced co-founder – due to a legacy of hits including The King’s Speech and Silver Linings Playbook, as well as a strong slate of upcoming releases.

The independent studio, mired in the Harvey Weinstein abuse scandal, has put itself up for sale and this week TWC secured an emergency injection of cash from private equity firm Colony Capital, which is also in talks to buy all or part of the business. Last year, Weinstein said that the business, including its library, was worth up to $800m (£600m) and had no debt. What is certain now, however, is that the brand is worthless. »

Jennifer Lawrence Says She Was Asked By a Producer to 'Lose 15 Pounds' After Doing a 'Nude Line-Up'

17 October 2017 5:43 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Jennifer Lawrence revealed exclusively to Et's Carly Steel that she is focused on "creating a community" of support for women in Hollywood after her own experiences with sexism in the industry.

At Monday night's Elle's 24th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration, presented in part by L'Oreal Paris and Calvin Klein, the Oscar winner gave an empowering speech where she revealed that the producers of one of her first films asked her to quickly lose weight and subjected her to an uncomfortable audition process. 

"When I was much younger and starting out, I was told by producers of a film to lose 15 pounds in two weeks," she recalled, noting that another actress had already been fired for not slimming down fast enough. "During this time, a female producer had me do a nude line-up with about five women who were much, much, thinner than me. We all stood side-by-side with only tape on covering our privates."

Variety is reporting that Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story), Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook), Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), Danielle MacDonald (Patti Cake$) and Lil Rel Howery (Get Out) have signed on to the cast of the sci-fi film Bird Box, which already has Sandra Bullock and John Malkovich attached.

Together, the three must make their way on a terrifying journey — 20 miles in a rowboat — while blindfolded, with nothing to rely on but the mother’s wits and the children’s trained ears.

13 October 2017 6:43 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Harvey Weinstein sexual-assault scandal has claimed a high-profile casualty: Amazon will no longer produce an upcoming drama series starring Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore, since it was produced by The Weinstein Company.

The streaming service announced on Friday it was cutting all ties with The Weinstein Company, according to our sister site Deadline, dropping the De Niro/Moore series and moving forward with Matthew Weiner’s The Romanoffs anthology series, but “without the involvement of The Weinstein Company.”

13 October 2017 6:38 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Amazon made a pricey $160 million bet on a new series from director David O. Russell starring Julianne Moore and Robert De Niro. But now it’s folding those cards.

Weinstein Co. was a producer on the untitled series, the details of which had been kept under wraps. The decision to cancel production also came a day after Amazon Studios boss Roy Price, who picked up the show, was placed on indefinite leave due to sexual harassment allegations.

Jennifer Lawrence to Receive Sherry Lansing Leadership Award

13 October 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Lawrence in “American Hustle

Jennifer Lawrence is following in the footsteps of women like Tina Fey, Helen Mirren, Halle Berry, Barbra Streisand, and Shonda Rhimes. The Hollywood Reporter announced that Lawrence will be the youngest person to receive its Sherry Lansing Leadership Award. The honor is given each year to “a woman who has been a pioneer and philanthropic leader in her industry.” Lawrence will be presented with the award at The Hollywood Reporter’s 2017 Women in Entertainment breakfast on December 6 at Milk Studios in La.

The Oscar-winning actress donated $2 million to start the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at Kosair Children’s Hospital in her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. Her foundation also supports various philanthropic endeavors such as education, health services, and support of abused and neglected youth. In addition to being a vocal advocate for gender equality in Hollywood, Lawrence is on the board of Represent.Us, an anti-corruption organization that unites individuals across the ideological spectrum in order to reform U.S. politics.

“Having Jennifer agree to accept the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award is a wonderful honor,” emphasized Lansing, former CEO of Paramount Pictures and the first woman to head a Hollywood studio. “In merely a decade, her remarkable professional achievements, her willingness to take risks, and her philanthropic generosity have inspired millions. She reminds young women all over the world that their voices are meant to be heard. The Hollywood Reporter could not have chosen a better individual to recognize.”

Lawrence won an Oscar for portraying a young, volatile widow in “Silver Linings Playbook.” The “Hunger Games” franchise, the “X-Men” franchise, “Joy,” and “American Hustle” are among her other credits. You catch Lawrence in theaters now as a woman terrorized by houseguests from hell in the controversial “mother!” Next, she’ll star as a woman forced to become a spy in “Red Sparrow,” out March 2.

Ghostbusters” producer Amy Pascal will be honored at the Women in Entertainment breakfast, too. She’ll receive the second annual Equity in Entertainment Award. The accolade is granted to “an individual in the show business community who has proved committed to providing opportunities for women and people of color.” Meryl Streep will present Pascal with the award, which recognizes the work Pascal Pictures does to ensure equal opportunity for women and people of color. Pascal’s next film, Jessica Chastain-starrer “Molly’s Game,” hits select theaters Christmas Day.

“Both Jennifer and Amy perfectly embody the driving force behind THR’s Women in Entertainment initiative,” said Matthew Belloni, the publication’s editorial director. “They continue to use their voices and their talent to create opportunities for women in the industry, and I can’t think of two more deserving individuals to honor.”

Angelina Jolie, whose war film “First They Killed My Father” was recently selected as Cambodia’s foreign-language Oscar submission, will deliver the event’s keynote speech. THR also plans to present $1 million in university scholarships to the young women participating in its Women in Entertainment Mentorship Program. Eighteen mentorship participants will receive $10,000 to attend the college of her choosing, while two others will receive full-ride scholarships to Loyola Marymount University.

Jennifer Lawrence to Receive Sherry Lansing Leadership Award was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Academy Governors Debate Revoking Harvey Weinstein’s Membership — Exclusive

11 October 2017 10:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Two Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences governors told me that Academy board members are discussing whether Harvey Weinstein should continue as a member. An impromptu board meeting is expected sometime this week. It’s worth noting that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences board of governors is now one-third female, with members who include Whoopi Goldberg, Kimberly Peirce, and Christina Kounelias.

This would be a stunning reversal: By the count of The Weinstein Company’s website, his companies earned 303 Oscar nominations and 75 wins over three decades. Harvey could be the butt of Oscar jokes, but historically was the second most-thanked person in acceptance speeches, after Steven Spielberg.
