Derek Cianfrance’s The Light Between Oceans to Film in September; Drama Stars Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander

17 July 2014 7:51 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

2015 will be filled with some ridiculously-sized blockbusters, and while those are all well and good, I'm definitely going to be keeping an eye on The Light Between Oceans.  The story takes place on a remote Australian island following World War I and “follows a lighthouse keeper and his wife who are faced with a moral dilemma when a boat washes ashore with a dead man and an infant.  When they decide to raise the child as their own, the consequences are devastating."  The adaptation of M.L. Stedman‘s debut novel is being directed by Derek Cianfrance, who previously helmed the haunting Blue Valentine and the powerful, family epic The Place Beyond the Pines.  Furthermore, he's attracted yet another talented cast.  Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander are attached to play the lighthouse keeper and the wife with Rachel Weisz in talks to play the child's mother. That's a lot of talent for one film, »

Why Richard Linklater Deserves an Oscar for ‘Boyhood’

11 July 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Even though it’s only July, it’s hard to imagine watching a better-made movie in 2014 than “Boyhood.” Shot in secret over 12 years, director Richard Linklater captures the journey, and struggles, of growing up — his lead actor Ellar Coltrane ages in real time, from 6 to 18 onscreen. No other film has ever been made this way. Coltrane could have bailed from the project once he hit puberty, since even the strictest contract couldn’t keep him on a project for so long, but he stuck it through to the end (along with Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke, who play his parents).

For millennials and movie buffs, Linklater, who is 53, is one of the most influential directors of the arthouse boom of the early ’90s. When I recently interviewed Chris Evans, he said he modeled his upcoming directorial debut, “1:30 Train,” on “Before Sunset.” You could argue that Linklater, who was influenced by the French New Wave, »

Rachel Weisz FInds 'Light Between Oceans' with Michael Fassbender

10 July 2014 3:43 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Earlier this year, we learned that Michael Fassbender was going to team with Blue Valentine and The Place Beyond the Pines director Derek Dianfrance for The Light Between Oceans, an adaptation of M.L. Stedman's novel of the same name set up at DreamWorks. The story follows a lighthouse keeper and his wife in Western Australia after World War I when they find a dead body in a rowboat along with a 2-month old baby girl. While the husband wants to report the deceased and the baby, his wife decides it's a gift from God. And now THR reports Rachel Weisz is being lined up to take the role of Fassbender's wife. More below! Everything seems to be going smoothly as two enjoy their isolated life at the lighthouse, raising the baby Lucy as their own, until they take a trip to the mainland, and see that their choice to »

Rachel Weisz In Talks To See The Light Between Oceans With Michael Fassbender And Alicia Vikander

10 July 2014 11:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After taking on roles in thrillers like Dream House and The Bourne Legacy, then a supporting part in the big-budget blockbuster Oz the Great and Powerful, Rachel Weisz is getting back to smaller dramatic fare by joining Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander in the Derek Cianfrance-directed The Light Between Oceans.

The drama, an adaptation of the bestselling novel of the same name by M.L. Stedman, is set on a remote island off the coast of Australia in the years following World War I. It centers on a lighthouse keeper (Fassbender) and his lonely wife (Vikander), who are faced with an unexpected moral conundrum when a small boat containing a dead man and a two-month-old infant washes ashore. When the pair decide to keep the child and raise it as their own, the consequences of that choice are devastating.

Weisz is set to play the mother of the infant, who »

Rachel Weisz Sees 'Light Between Oceans' With Michael Fassbender For Director Derek Cianfrance

10 July 2014 11:37 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Michael Fassbender has so many projects coming up—"Slow West," "Macbeth," "Assassin's Creed," an untitled Terrence Malick film—we nearly forgot about "The Light Between Oceans." And shame on us because it's directed by Derek Cianfrance, who has knocked it out of the park with his last two films, "Blue Valentine" and "The Place Between The Pines." And the project is adding another exciting name. The Wrap reports that Rachel Weisz is in early discussions to join the film, which also has Alicia Vikander on board. Based on the book by M.L. Stedman, and set in the West Coast of Australia around Wwi, the story centers on a lighthouse keeper and his wife and the moral consequences they must face when they find a 2-month-old girl and a dead body in a rowboat, and decide to raise the baby as their own. The blessing soon turns tragic and presumably rips the relationship apart. »

With news that Eva Mendes is having a baby with longtime boyfriend Ryan Gosling, we're celebrating the couple's upcoming addition with a look at Ryan's cutest interactions with kids. On screen, in The Place Beyond the Pines, Ryan and Eva's characters have a child together, and stills from the film show Ryan sweetly holding onto the baby boy.

How do we fix the movie rating scale?

8 July 2014 12:38 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Use the F-word twice in a movie? That’ll cost you. Don’t remember to count the number of pelvic thrusts you showed? Now you’re in trouble. Showing full frontal female or male nudity and don’t have good distribution? You’re done before you even started.

Hollywood’s rating scale is broken. The MPAA’s system of G, PG, PG-13, R and Nc-17 has meant increasingly less since it came into use in 1968. For years there have been cases of major studio pictures with obscene stretches of violence passing as PG-13 to boost summer box office receipts, while the harmless Oscar winner The King’s Speech was slapped with an R-rating for fear children would be corrupted by hearing Colin Firth use profanity.

Even the little used Nc-17 rating has seen controversy in recent years, with movies like Shame, Blue Valentine and last year’s Blue is the Warmest Color »

Ryan Gosling Once Asked For Rachel McAdams To Be Kicked Off Set Of 'The Notebook'

2 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Nick Cassavetes, director of The Notebook, revealed that stars Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams frequently fought while filming, and it got so bad that Gosling once asked to have McAdams removed from set.

To celebrate the film’s tenth anniversary – The Notebook came out in 2004 – Vh1 spoke with director Cassavetes about the production of the film, including the casting of the two leads, McAdams and Gosling.

Ryan Gosling Asked For Rachel McAdams To Leave

Despite their off screen relationship, Cassavetes revealed that Gosling and McAdams would often butt heads on set. In fact, one day, tensions ran so high that Gosling took Cassavetes aside and asked if McAdams could be asked to leave the set.

“Maybe I’m not supposed to tell this story, but they were really not getting along one day on set. Really not. And Ryan came to me, and there’s 150 people standing in this big scene, »

The Academy Invites 271 New Members for 2014

26 June 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong'o among 271 Academy invitees

26 June 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years a Slave were two of the 271 artists and industry leaders invited to become members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which determines nominations and winners at the annual Oscars. The entire list of Academy membership—which numbers about 6,000—isn’t public information so the annual invitation list is often the best indication of the artists involved in the prestigious awards process. It’s worth noting that invitations need to be accepted in order for artists to become members; some artists, like two-time Best Actor winner Sean Penn, have declined membership over the years. »

Josh Hutcherson, Lupita Nyong'o, Pharrell and 268 others invited to join the Academy

26 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »

Academy Invites 271 New Members

26 June 2014 11:49 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has invited 271 individuals to become members, with the list reflecting the org’s determination to bring more diversity to its ranks.

Every year, the list of invitations includes several recent Oscar nominees. That’s true this year as well, with letters going out Wednesday to a cross-section of people including 2013 contenders Barkhad Abdi, Lupita Nyong’o, Hayao Miyazaki, Pharrell Williams, Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, plus such creatives as Megan Ellison, Chris Rock, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Steve Coogan, Jason Statham, William Chang Suk Ping, Joan Sobel, Tracey Seaward, Mads Mikkelsen and Chantal Akerman.

Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs told Variety Thursday, “This is a continuation of an initiative to bring in new voices. Filmmaking has gotten more diverse, and audiences have been responding. There are terrific filmmakers around the world at the top of their game and we want to recognize them and bring them into the Academy. »

SundanceTV Revs Development with Projects from Alan Cumming, Todd Field, Patrick Dempsey

25 June 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

SundanceTV is embracing television’s auteur moment with an ambitious development slate that aims to capitalize on the new flexibility offered by limited-run series.

The cabler is building on the foundation of its first two original series, “Rectify” and this year’s “The Red Road,” as it looks to greenlight its next wave of original series. The glowing reviews for the second season of “Rectify,” which bowed earlier this month, have gone a long way to convincing creative talent that a six-episode order on SundanceTV can make a big splash, if the material has the goods.

Sarah Barnett, SundanceTV prexy, said the combination of new revenue sources from Svod and international players and the openness of creative talent to taking non-traditional approaches to scripted production has greatly expanded the horizons for niche cablers.

“We are at a fantastic moment in the business where we no longer just have to monetize our shows through advertising on-air. »

Newbies, Habituals & James Ransone Are All Ripe for Sean Baker’s “Tangerine”

19 June 2014 7:10 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Moving from unlikely friendships in Starlet, to perhaps the likeliest of neighbors, Sean Baker appears to have found a cosmos that is inspiring to him in the rarely depicted Los Angeles backdrop. While still mum on plot details, Deadline has learned that Tangerine will include the filmmaker’s preferred mix of first timers and old-timers. Newbie thesps Kiki Lee Key and Mya Taylor are supported by Mickey O’Hagan and Karren Karagulian – both appeared in Baker’s films (including Prince of Broadway and Starlet) and oft used Spike Lee character actor in James Ransone.

Production on his fifth feature began earlier this year with Mark and Jay Duplass once again proving their love for American indie as exec producers alongside hubby & wife team Marcus and Karrie Cox’s Through Films. Darren Dean and Shih-Ching Tsou (who co-directed Take Out with Baker) are producing as well, while Freestyle Productions’ Kevin Chinoy »

Laff Review: 'Comet,' Starring Justin Long and Emmy Rossum, is a Cosmic Romance Worth Watching

16 June 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A star-crossed romance that often feels cosmic and intimate within the span of a single scene, “Comet” rhymes images from five different eras of a relationship that begins during a meteor shower and may or may not end more than half a decade later. It carves out a space for itself between the drawn-out conversations of Richard Linklater’s “Before” trilogy, the jumps between a turbulent couple’s honeymoon period and their eventual decline in “Blue Valentine,” and the whimsical dream logic of “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” And it’s as appealingly strange, funny, and melancholy as those components suggest. Dell (Justin Long) and Kimberly (Emmy Rossum) first meet at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles for a celestial viewing party. Long before they’ve shared their first kiss, we’re transported to a later, less blissful point in their union. Feelings have evolved, the dynamic has shifted. »

Warner Bros. May Sell Ryan Gosling’s Lost River Following Dismal Reviews from Cannes

22 May 2014 7:41 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ryan Gosling has always been one to go a little against the grain.  He could have easily been leading big studio tentpoles at multiple points in his career, but time and time again he’s opted instead to take challenging roles in films like Lars and the Real Girl, Blue Valentine, and Drive.  Most recently, Gosling took things even further by setting out to make his directorial debut on an ambitious film called Lost River.  Possibly due to their relationship with the actor on Gangster Squad and Crazy, Stupid, Love., Warner Bros. agreed to distribute the offbeat film, which was admittedly a bit out of character for the studio given its propensity for shepherding larger-scale films. Well now the studio appears to be rethinking its decision, as the strongly negative response to Lost River at the Cannes Film Festival has the studio looking to sell the project to an indie distributor. »
