Watch: First Trailer For Clint Eastwood's Musical 'Jersey Boys' Aims For The High Notes

13 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Music has always been a big part of Clint Eastwood's career, with the filmmaker also serving as composer and songwriter for a strong handful of his films, yet he's never actually made a musical. Outside of the biopic "Bird" and an episode of the PBS series "The Blues," Eastwood has never really had the chance to dig elbows deep into movie with wall-to-wall music, but now the director who seems to have done it all, will cross the genre off his bucket list. The first trailer for "Jersey Boys" is here, bringing all the songs of the hit Broadway show to the big screen. Starring John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, Vincent Piazza, Michael Lomenda and Christopher Walken, and penned by John Logan ("Hugo," "Skyfall"), the films will tell the tale of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, documenting the rise and fall of the successful rock 'n' roll group of the 1960s, »

Pierce Brosnan Doesn’t Think That He Was A Good James Bond

15 April 2014 2:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though not the best James Bond, Pierce Brosnan was far from the worst. In fact, I count Goldeneye as one of my favorite films of the franchise and was always a big fan of the actor’s portrayal of the iconic character. It turns out that not everyone feels that way though, as Brosnan himself says that he can’t even watch his 007 films as he doesn’t think that they were “good enough.”

“I felt I was caught in a time warp between Roger and Sean…It was a very hard one to grasp the meaning of, for me. The violence was never real, the brute force of the man was never palpable. It was quite tame, and the characterization didn’t have a follow-through of reality, it was surface. But then that might have had to do with my own insecurities in playing him as well,” said the actor. »

'Chimerica,' 'Book of Mormon' win at Oliviers

14 April 2014 5:48 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Irreverent musical The Book of Mormon and hit geopolitical drama Chimerica were the big winners Sunday at Britain’s Olivier stage awards, on a night when London’s small theaters flexed their substantial muscle.

The Book of Mormon — which stormed London just as it earlier wowed New York — won four prizes, including best new musical and best actor in a musical, for Gavin Creel.

Choreographer and co-director Casey Nicholaw said the success of the show — written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone — came down to its blend of “good contemporary satire and good old-fashioned entertainment.”

Learn More About Penny Dreadful's Dorian Gray and Brona Croft

13 April 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Several days ago Showtime released "Penny Dreadful" character posters for Dorian Gray and Brona Croft, portrayed by Reeve Carney and Billie Piper, and now they're back with a new video that reveals a bit more about them both.

"Penny Dreadful" is created, written, and executive produced by three-time Oscar nominee John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator, Gladiator) and executive produced by Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Neal Street's Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, "Call the Midwife").

Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Josh Hartnett, Harry Treadaway, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, and Eva Green star. Juan Antonio Bayona (The Orphanage, The Impossible) directs the first two episodes.

"Penny Dreadful" is set to premiere on Showtime on Sunday, May 11th, at 10Pm Et/Pt.

Penelope Cruz to Play a Bond Girl? (Dear Lord, We Hope So)

11 April 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Apparently, last summer there was talk about Penelope Cruz taking a role in Sam Mendes’ follow up to Skyfall. This week in things we hope are true, a French magazine has found proof(?) that the actress will be in the movie. Sony put her name alongside Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, and Naomie Harris on a release update that included Bond 24. It’s possible that it was an administrative error, but if it wasn’t, how mother-effing great is that news?

Given the franchise’s grittier, more character-driven take since Casino Royale and its ability to attract a well-respected director like Mendes, it’s no surprise that they are finding higher caliber actresses willing to play Bond girls. And no offense, Denise Richards, but Academy Award winner Cruz is a major upgrade. She has done her best work in smaller films, working with directors like Ridley Scott, Woody Allen, and her old friend Pedro Almodovar. »

Is Penelope Cruz in Bond 24?

10 April 2014 5:02 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Back in the summer of last year there was some talk of Penelope Cruz securing a role in Sam Mendes' developing follow-up to Skyfall. While no more was heard in the immediate weeks and months following, Cruz has now once again been linked to Bond 24, via what seems to be a credible source. The French Premiere magazine has spotted her name next to Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris on a Sony release update.If that's accurate, and not just an admin cock-up within Sony's PR, it marks a pleasing casting symmetry with Skyfall, which starred Cruz' husband Javier Bardem as the villainous Silva.As a Bond-girl - whatever that now means in these slightly more enlightened Bond days - Cruz would be an unusually high-profile choice, and the first Oscar-winner to take such a role (Halle Berry won her Academy Award post-Bond). But she's picking her roles carefully lately, »

Is Penelope Cruz the New Bond Girl in 'Bond 24'?

10 April 2014 12:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in June, Yahoo reported that actress Pen&#233lope Cruz was rumored to play the next Bond Girl in Bond 24, although that report was debunked just a few weeks later. As it turns out, that initial report may have been true after all, with Premiere France spotting the actress' name on Sony's recent release schedule update, where she was listed next to confirmed stars Daniel Craig (007/James Bond), Ralph Fiennes (M) and Naomie Harris (Moneypenny).

If it turns out to be true, Pen&#233lope Cruz, who turns 40 later this month, will be the oldest Bond girl in franchise history. Her husband Javier Bardem portrayed 007's nemesis Silva in 2012's Skyfall. Back in October, we reported that Kate Upton and Helen Flanagan were in contention for the coveted role, but we haven't heard anything else regarding their involvement since then. There is also a new report from Aftonbladet.se that »

Firth & Kidman Sign On For ‘Genius’

10 April 2014 12:16 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman are set to collaborate together again (after recently starring in The Railway Man) in Genius, alongside Michael Fassbender.

Directed by John Logan (the writer behind Skyfall), this biopic will focus on literary editor Max Perkins (Firth) and his friendship with Thomas Wolfe (Fassbender). It is currently unclear which role Kidman will take on. Adapted from Perkins’ biography, Max and Thomas were said to have a mentor/mentee partnership, so Colin and Michael will be working closely together.

As for Firth and Kidman, they’ve cemented themselves as an ‘onscreen husband and wife’. In Colin’s words:

“Once you develop a connection with somebody, it helps you from job to job. I think her versatility is extraordinary. It’s not just about the extraordinary results she produces, but also the choices she makes are a testament to the kind of mentality she has.”

Has Penelope Cruz Already Been Cast In Bond 24?

10 April 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Bond 24 gearing up to head into production this summer, casting news is starting to heat up. Last week, we heard that Chiwetel Ejiofor might be playing the lead villain and now, we’re learning that Penelope Cruz may have already joined film in an undisclosed role. It’s important to note that this has not been officially confirmed yet by the studio. Rather, it comes from France’s Premiere magazine, who spotted a listing for the film that included Cruz’s name on the cast list.

Despite the lack of an official confirmation, Cruz’s involvement makes sense. She was rumored for the film last year and her husband, Javier Bardem, played the main baddie in Skyfall.  As for which role she’s in (if she has indeed signed on), last year’s rumor pointed to her being the new Bond girl, which we can definitely see happening. »

Has Penelope Cruz Joined Bond 24?

10 April 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

This isn't the first time we've heard Penelope Cruz's name associated with Bond 24. Back in June of last year, a source for Yahoo! Movies informed the site that producers were in negotiations with the Spanish actress for a role in the next Bond installment. A few weeks later, a source for Us Weekly shot down those rumors. Now it appears as though Yahoo! Movies was actually right. "The eagle-eyed folks at France's Premiere magazine noticed that in a recent release schedule update from Sony, Penelope Cruz was listed in the cast alongside Daniel Craig , Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris." - blogs.indiewire.com If true, this would be rather interesting from the standpoint, Cruz is married to Javier Bardem. He played Skyfall's antagonist, Raoul Silva. Bond 24 will be directed by Sam Mendes ("Skyfall"), from a screenplay written by John Logan. The cast will include: Daniel Craig »

Penelope Cruz Reportedly Joins 'Bond 24,' More Names Rumored For Film

10 April 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"Star Wars: Episode 7" isn't the only franchise around town working hard to keep details under wraps. "Bond 24" is gearing up to shoot this summer, and with reports last week that Chiwetel Ejiofor was being considered for a villain role, now another big star has come into the casting mix. The eagle-eyed folks at France's Premiere magazine noticed that in a recent release schedule update from Sony, Penelope Cruz was listed in the cast alongside Daniel Craig , Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris. Is it a mistake? Perhaps, and let's not forget that as early as last summer, rumors swirled that Cruz would be joining the film (following her husband Javier Bardem's turn as the villain in "Skyfall"). We're sure confirmation or denials or (more likely) silence will come down from on high soon enough. But any rate, casting does seem to be moving along in earnest. Aftonbladet (via Bleeding »

Kidman, Firth, Fassbender Team On "Genius"

10 April 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Railway Man" stars Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth are set to re-team on the long-developing drama "Genius" which also stars Michael Fassbender.

Based on A. Scott Berg's National Book Award winning biography "Max Perkins: Editor of Genius", the story deals with the real-life tender and complex friendship between literary giant Thomas Wolfe (Fassbender) and renowned editor Max Perkins (Firth).

Wolfe became famous from a young age for both his talent and larger-than-life personality. Perkins is one of the most respected literary editors of all time who discovered talent such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway.

While most writers struggle with their words, Wolfe had the opposite problem and butted heads with Perkins who demanded he keep to a tight word limit. It was a volatile relationship, but one that changed both their lives.

John Logan ("Skyfall," "Gladiator") penned the script This would mark Kidman and Firth's third collaboration together, »

Benedict Cumberbatch Trades His Kingdom For A Horse In BBC Two Adaptation Of Richard III

7 April 2014 10:37 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We know him as Sherlock Holmes and Khan, but it’s sometimes nice to be reminded that Benedict Cumberbatch is first and foremost a proper actor. So proper, in fact, that he can make the choice to move away from a potential star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for a little while and take on a major part in a Shakespearean play. BBC Two recently announced that Cumberbatch will appear in a television production of Richard III as part of a trilogy of adaptations of Shakespeare’s history plays.

According to Deadline, Cumberbatch is in line to play the titular king who traded his kingdom for a horse in a telefilm executively produced by Sam Mendes (Skyfall) and directed by Royal Court Theatre artistic director Dominic Cooke.  The Richard III production will likely follow the previous Henry VI plays in the history cycle, concluding Shakespeare’s dramatic mapping of »
