Breast cancer is one of the worst thing a woman could ever go through and is beyond hard on the women that undergo the treatments and the pain and the suffering that comes with it. But while this is horrible, and it is without a doubt, the lives of the people that take care of those afflicted with such cancer are also impacted a great deal as they must watch and support their loved ones while seeing just what kind of damage is being done in the process. Despite the hardships his wife Tran went through, Ken Jeong still managed

Patty Jenkins Funnels Ideas of Female Empowerment Into Anti-Recidivism Efforts

10 October 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After making the 2003 independent film “Monster,” about serial killer Aileen Wuornos, director Patty Jenkins started to correspond with prisoners around the country. “I became educated in how incredibly difficult it can be for people to get out of prison — even when they are innocent, even when they are reformed,” she says. “The world brands a person a prisoner forever.”

While doing research for another project, she connected with producer Scott Budnick, who experienced a similar epiphany when he volunteered to teach creative writing to incarcerated juveniles in Los Angeles. In 2013, Budnick officially started the nonprofit Anti-Recidivism Coalition to help men and women leaving prison navigate ways to reenter society.

Arc offers counseling, mentoring services, education and assistance with housing. It also has partnered with chains like Starbucks, Home Depot and The Cheesecake Factory to facilitate job placement. Budnick uses his connections to the movie industry when he can. “I had a few folks straight out of prison »

Crazy Stupid Love and Focus directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are currently developing Pandemonium, a biopic of WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon, and a new rumor says that The Hangover and American Sniper star Bradley Cooper has been offered the role of the boisterous and media-savvy personality.

Awesome New Art Imagines Tom Hiddleston As The Joker

1 October 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

DC fans had their minds blown when it was announced a month ago that an origins movie for the Joker was in the works. Sitting outside the DC Extended Universe, the film is set to feature a new actor as the Clown Prince of Crime in place of Jared Leto. Furthermore, The Hangover’s Todd Phillips is directing with legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese on hand to produce.

By leveraging Scorsese’s involvement in the spinoff project, Warner has reportedly set sights on Leonardo DiCaprio for the title role, which would mark the actor’s first major foray into Hollywood’s bustling superhero genre. It would undoubtedly be a historic coup for the studio, but at least at the time of writing, there’s been no mention of Warner Bros. tabling an official deal between both parties. As the rumors continue to swirl though, we now have some more fan art emerging, »

DC Confirms That The Joker Movie Is Not Connected To Dceu In Any Way

29 September 2017 3:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Today’s interview with DC Creative Officer Geoff Johns and DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson explained that, post-Justice League, Warner Bros. is planning to de-emphasize the shared universe across their films. Now, we know a little bit more as to how it’ll be structured.

You’ll still have movies that are technically within the same universe, but we probably won’t be seeing events in one film influencing another. On top of that, there’ll be a separate line of pics with no connection to the Dceu whatsoever – like the upcoming Joker project.

Perhaps the most intriguing prospect on the DC radar, the film has The Hangover director Todd Phillips attached to co-write and helm, with none other than Martin-freakin-Scorsese apparently in talks to produce. Not only that, but it’s been said that Warner Bros. is targeting Leonardo DiCaprio to play the title role. We’ll see »

Geoff Johns talks Warner’s standalone DC movies, Dceu to focus less on interconnectivity

29 September 2017 2:41 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in August it was announced that Warner Bros. is set to launch a new DC Comics division, focussing on standalone movies separate from the wider DC Extended Universe and beginning with a Joker origin film from director Todd Phillips (The Hangover) and producer Martin Scorsese (Silence), which will see a new actor cast as the Clown Prince of Crime.

During a new interview with Vulture, DC’s chief creative officer – and co-head of DC Films – Geoff Johns and DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson have been chatting about the studio’s plans for their comic book properties, with Johns providing a brief overview of what they are looking to achieve with this newest venture:

“They’re outside the mainstream film universe and they feature different actors and worlds and takes on the characters. They’re most likely all going to be one-offs. We’ll be announcing the name of it soon-ish, »

Wrinkle in Time Gets Game of Thrones Composer

28 September 2017 6:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney's adaptation A Wrinkle in Time is shaping up to be one of next year's most highly-anticipated films, as fans wait for the next batch of footage following the first A Wrinkle in Time trailer that dropped at the D23 Expo back in July. There has been no confirmation as to when the next footage may arrive, but director Ava DuVernay just recently dropped an interesting piece of news on social media, confirming that Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi has come aboard to do the score. The director included a photo of herself alongside the composer in the editing bay, where fans can get a new glimpse of Storm Reid's pivotal character Meg Murry.

The director revealed on social media that she has "listened to his music for years and swooned," before confirming that he will compose the score for A Wrinkle in Time. It's possible that the »

‘Father Figures’ Trailer: Owen Wilson & Ed Helms Are Brothers Looking For Their Father

28 September 2017 6:06 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Father Figures” is another addition to the stable of raunchy studio comedies that made stars Owen Wilson and Ed Helms’ names, and caps off a year wherein Wilson is also looking for awards recognition in the weepie “Wonder.”

A new trailer has arrived for the Warner Bros. comedy which marks the directorial debut of “The Hangover” cinematographer Lawrence Sher — here’s hoping that this film can recapture some of that first film’s gonzo charm and less of the seedy and misogynist humor of the following films in that franchise.

Todd Phillips’ Joker origin movie script to be turned in next week

22 September 2017 5:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Almost a month ago to the day, it was revealed that Warner Bros. had tapped Todd Phillips (The Hangover) to direct a Joker origin movie, which would be separate from the DC Extended Universe.

Well, it seems the project may be further along than we thought, as Justin Kroll from Variety is reporting that Phillips and his co-writer Scott Silver (8 Mile) are set to turn in their script next week, and may even be looking at shooting the project in 2018.

The Joker Origins Movie Already Has A Completed Script, May Shoot In 2018

21 September 2017 8:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

DC fans had their minds blown when it was announced a month ago that an origins movie for the Joker was in the works. Sitting outside the DC Extended Universe, the film is set to feature a new actor as the Clown Prince of Crime in place of Jared Leto. Furthermore, The Hangover’s Todd Phillips is directing with legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese on hand to produce.

Still, there wasn’t initially any guarantee that the project would see the light of day anytime soon. After all, plenty of other DC films have been announced only to never end up materializing (see: Lobo and Justice League Dark). That won’t be the case for The Joker, though, as we’re now hearing that it’s being fast-tracked into production.

Variety’s Justin Kroll confirmed via Twitter that sources have informed him the script is set to be handed in to Warner Bros. next week. »

The Joker origins movie screenplay nearly ready

20 September 2017 10:08 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Sep 21, 2017

Warner Bros might just have its Joker origins movie ready to film next year at this rate...

It looks like news broke of the planned The Joker origins movie that Warner Bros is setting up long after work had actually begun on the film. This is the movie that won’t feature Jared Leto as The Joker (although he will be back in at least two films, including Suicide Squad 2), will be overseen by Martin Scorsese in some capacity, and that The Hangover’s Todd Phillips is set to direct.

Furthermore, it looks like the project may be on the fast track.

Variety is reporting that the screenplay for the movie is expected to be handed over to Warner Bros next week. It’s a fair assumption that the studio will want to do some tinkering work with it, and the script that lands may, of course, »

Margot Robbie Calls Joker and Harley Quinn a Messed Up Love Story

19 September 2017 1:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Harley Quinn Vs. the Joker is definitely happening. And while David Ayer had some fun last week sharing an old image from Suicide Squad that showed Harley in her Jester outfit, and got everyone speculating about his return as a director, it sounds like writer/directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa might actually be taking on this iteration of the two characters. Out promoting Goodbye Christopher Robin, Margot Robbie confirmed that she's also heard that this director duo is on board for the super villain spin-off.

As nice as anyone wants to be to DC Films, there's no denying that their impending Dceu slate is an outright mess. There are movies in development all over the place, but none are a sure thing. We've heard that Shazam, which is technically a New Line movie, will be the next to go into production after Aquaman. And from there it is anyone's guess. »

New Fan Art Imagines Christian Bale As The Joker

10 September 2017 6:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. looks to be swinging for the fences when it comes to The Joker.

Not only has the studio entered negotiations with legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese about the possibility of producing the “super dark” origin movie, one which Todd Phillips (The Hangover) would direct, but just the other week we heard that WB brass are targeting none other than Leonardo DiCaprio for the gig.

Details are scarce, and it’s unclear how the studio plans to incorporate the A-list star into the mix if The Joker is to be an origin story involving the Clown Prince of Crime, but given that The Wolf of Wall Street actor hasn’t been confirmed for the job just yet, fans have been putting forth tons of suggestions for who could take the role, and one person who’s found himself with quite a bit of support is none other than Christian Bale. »

Joker Origin Movie Has Jared Leto Very Confused

7 September 2017 9:34 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Jared Leto recently revealed that he was just as "confused" as the rest of us when Warner Bros. announced a standalone Joker Origin Movie that would not have him portraying a young Joker. Warner Bros. has also officially announced that there is a Joker and Harley Quinn movie in the works, but we're getting a sequel to Suicide Squad first, which will see The Accountant director, Gavin O'Connor, take over the screenwriting responsibilities as well as directing the project. Filming isn't expected to start on Suicide Squad 2 until fall 2018, but Leto is expected to have a pretty full plate of Joker material in the next few years, just not in the origin story.

It was reported last week that Warner Bros. is actively pursuing Leonardo DiCaprio to play the Joker in the origin story, but that just seems like a really crazy long shot to see DiCaprio jump head first into that project. »

Jared Leto is “a little confused” by Warner Bros’ Joker plans

6 September 2017 11:21 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Sep 7, 2017

Jared Leto has been chatting about playing The Joker, and touches on Warner Bros' Joker plans...

A quick catch-up. Last week, we learned that Warner Bros is planning a Joker origins movie, that Martin Scorsese is to produce, and The Hangover director Todd Phillips will helm. It’ll explore the early days of the Joker, and how he became the infamous villain he’s known as.

Jared Leto, the incumbent Joker following Suicide Squad, will not be playing the character in that film. However, he will be reprising the role in what looks like two further projects. Firstly, there’s Suicide Squad 2, that Warner Bros wants to get moving next year (and Gavin O’Connor has just been handed the gig of directing that one). And there’s also a Harley Quinn and Joker spin-off movie.

“I’m a little confused too”, Leto has confessed to »
