Harvey Weinstein: His Career Timeline of Sexual Harassment Allegations

7 October 2017 11:39 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In this week’s missile of a The New York Times story about the many alleged indiscretions of Harvey Weinstein, one of his past colleagues, former Miramax Los Angeles president Mark Gill, describes Weinstein’s professional climb from indie producer to Hollywood titan. “From the outside, it seemed golden — the Oscars, the success, the remarkable cultural impact.” Yet Gill said the persistent whispers that Weinstein was mistreating women were in fact “the biggest mess of all.”

While The Weinstein Co. co-founder publicly championed women’s rights, his accusers say that he was a hypocrite, secretly propositioning them for massages, kisses and more. One month after Weinstein distributed “The Hunting Ground,” a documentary about rapes on university campuses, he allegedly groped a college-aged woman in his office. Weinstein, 65, has a well-documented, on-the-record history of unflattering behavior, even against women (like in 2002, when he publicly berated director Julie Taymor at a screening of her film, »

7 October 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No problem… just “Rush Hour 4.” Ten years after the buddy-cop franchise directed by Brett Ratner became a trilogy featuring a bizarre Roman Polanski cameo, Jackie Chan says that a fourth installment is indeed in the works — but what happens next depends on Chris Tucker.

“For the last seven years, we’ve been turning down the script, turning down the script,” Chan said during an appearance on Los Angeles radio station Power 106’s “The Cruz Show.” “Yesterday, we just agreed.” All doesn’t appear to be finalized, however: “The script probably at the end of this month will have a second draft, and next year, probably [we will] start. I hope — if Chris Tucker agrees.”

Harvey Weinstein Accused of Three Decades of Alleged Sexual Harassment Claims by Ashley Judd and More Women

5 October 2017 2:55 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Ashley Judd and more women have accused high-powered studio mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexually harassing them, in multiple claims that stretch over three decades.

Judd talks about her alleged experience 20 years ago in a bombshell report published in The New York Times on Thursday, which claims Weinstein has reached at least eight settlements with women over sexual harassment claims from 1990 - 2015. Judd claims Weinstein invited her to the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel for a business breakfast meeting, and says she was surprised when he sent her up to his suite, where she claims he appeared in a bathrobe. She then alleges that despite her repeated rejections, he continuously requested intimate favors from her -- including a massage, a shoulder rub and, eventually, allegedly asking her if she would watch him take a shower.

"How do I get out of the room as fast as possible without alienating Harvey Weinstein?" Judd says she remembers thinking. “I said no »

Weinstein Company Board Meeting to Decide Harvey Weinstein’s Fate (Exclusive)

5 October 2017 2:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The board of directors of the Weinstein Company will meet by the end of the day on Friday to decide if Harvey Weinstein will remain with the indie film and television studio he helped found, Variety has learned. Under one scenario being teased in the company’s upper echelons, Weinstein’s brother Bob will assume the leadership of the company along with David Glasser, the Weinstein Company’s chief operating officer and president. It’s unclear if Weinstein will be suspended or forced out of the company entirely. He has an ownership stake in the studio that could complicate any moves to oust him.

The potential leadership shift comes as the Weinstein Company has been rocked by a New York Times report that alleges that Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed female employees and women for decades. They include on-the-record allegations from actress Ashley Judd, as well as several former staffers. The piece claims that Weinstein reached at least »

Harvey Weinstein Lawyers Up for Bombshell New York Times, New Yorker Stories

4 October 2017 2:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Harvey Weinstein has hired a high-powered team of attorneys to push back on soon-to-be-published bombshell stories from the New York Times and the New Yorker detailing sexual allegations and improper workplace behavior against him. Some women making the charges are believed to be on the record.

Weinstein, the indie mogul and founder of the Weinstein Company, has retained star litigator David Boies, as well as attorneys Lisa Bloom and Charles Harder in an effort to rebut the claims. Jodi Kantor, an investigative reporter who wrote about harsh working conditions at Amazon, is working on the story for the Times, along with Megan Twohey, who wrote a piece about Weinstein’s questionable charitable work for amfAR, a charity involved with AIDS research. Ronan Farrow, the former MSNBC host, is doing the story for the New Yorker, according to multiple individuals with knowledge of the situation. One individual said that at least one of the stories could be published »

Here Are 59 Actors Who Landed Oscar Nominations For Portraying Characters With Disabilities

25 September 2017 2:31 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Triumph over adversity is drama defined, and Oscar nominations often go to actors whose characters find victory over physical or mental afflictions. The earliest example goes back to 1947; that was the year that non-pro Harold Russell won Best Supporting Actor and a special award for “The Best Years of Our Lives.” Russell was a WWII veteran who lost both of his hands while making a training film. Of note: Of the 59, 27 of these nominations went on to a win. This year’s roster of stars playing afflicted characters includes Jake Gyllenhaal as bombing victim Jeff Baumer in “Stronger,” Andrew Garfield as polio survivor Robin Cavendish in “Breathe,” Bryan Cranston as a millionaire quadriplegic in “The Upside,” and Sally Hawkins in two roles, as an arthritic painter in “Maudie” and a mute lab worker in “The Shape of Water.”

Are You Ready for the Most Exciting Oscar Race in Years?

19 September 2017 8:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The leaves are turning. The Emmys are behind us. The crowds in Venice, Telluride, Colo., and Toronto have dispersed. Oscar season is officially here.

As the industry spins out of the late-summer film festival circuit, which annually grinds the gears of the season to life, this year’s race is shaping up to be one of the most exciting ever observed in the early stages. There are plenty of strong contenders, but no out-and-out frontrunner. There isn’t even an agreed-upon trio of frontrunners, as there was last year when “Manchester by the Sea,” “La La Land” and “Moonlight” burst out of this corridor.

Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk” was the first slam-dunk on the scene in July. Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” was the first major festival splash after that, premiering on Aug. 31 within hours of another instant player, Joe Wright’s “Darkest Hour,” though they debuted thousands of miles apart; “Shape” landed in »

With 'mother!', Jennifer Lawrence Looks to the Next Phase of Her Career

15 September 2017 10:58 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from mother!]

Over the past few years, Jennifer Lawrence has vaulted to the top of the A-list thanks to roles in genre fare like The Hunger Games and the X-Men franchise. But Lawrence's breakout role, in the 2010 drama Winter's Bone, suggested that her strengths far surpassed sci-fi/fantasy titles, as did her collaborations with writer-director David O. Russell in Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle. This weekend, Lawrence is stepping further away from comic books and Ya dystopias, with her lead role in Darren Aronofsky's mother!, displaying more of the intense, fierce commitment that marked her »

And the First Ever Emmy for Music Supervision Goes to… a Woman

14 September 2017 9:09 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The first ever Emmy Award for music supervision was handed out on Sept. 10 to Susan Jacobs for “Big Little Lies.” In a field traditionally dominated by men, particularly on the composition side, the win makes the veteran curator and former label executive a trailblazer in the craft of putting song to picture. The episode that clinched it: the finale titled “You Get What You Need,” referencing the Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Gets What You Want,” which played knowingly in the background, but was sung by the artist Ituana. The show also featured a spine-tingling rendition of Elvis Presley’s “Don’t,” performed by Zoe Kravitz. Elvis’ classic “It’s Now or Never” was another highlight.

Jacobs has a distinguished resume that includes music supervision on such films as “Silver Linings Playbook,” “American Hustle” and “Little Miss Sunshine,” and TV series like Amazon’s “Mozart in the Jungle” and HBO’s “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst.” Among »

Jennifer Lawrence on Why ‘Mother!’ Is a Feminist Movie

12 September 2017 7:06 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Darren Aronofsky’s “Mother!” — about a woman (Jennifer Lawrence) who lives with her husband (Javier Bardem) on a deserted farmhouse — has generated more debate than any film to debut at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.

The Paramount Pictures release, which opens on Friday, has been shrouded in mystery, and critics are still trying to piece together what it all means. “I wanted to make a film about Mother Nature,” Aronofsky told Variety. “So we’re working on an allegorical level, where it’s dealing with these big symbols.”

When asked if she thought the film was a feminist story, Lawrence answered in the affirmative. “To me, this is incredibly feminist in the way that these Victorian, patriarchal novels show these loving, amazing husbands that are very slowly and delicately taking away their wives’ dignity,” said Lawrence, who was reading “Jane Eyre” during the shoot. “To »

How Emmy Rivals James Lipton and Neil deGrasse Tyson Chase — and Edit — Celebrities

28 August 2017 12:37 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

You wouldn’t think that National Geographic talk show “StarTalk,” hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, would have anything in common with its Emmy rival for Outstanding Informational Series or Special, 90-year-old James Lipton’s “Inside the Actor’s Studio,” which Bravo airs to a global audience of 94 million in 125 countries. “StarTalk” started as a Syrius podcast — NatGeo cherrypicks 20 episodes for the TV show — and is up for its third Emmy, while “Studio,” with 20 nominations and one win in 2013, is the sixth most-nominated show ever.

Both men wrangle celebrities, who submit to being interviewed on camera at length, and then edit the hell out of what they get. Lipton and Tyson use this celebrity wattage to lure viewers into watching subjects near to their hearts: the art of acting and the power of science, respectively.

Over 23 years hosting “Inside The Actor’s Studio,” Lipton has interviewed many of this year’s Emmy nominees, »
