'House of Cards' Screenwriter Beau Willimon Thinks Writing Is Like 'Grabbing at the Cosmic'

16 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The final installment of the BAFTA BFI Screenwriters' Lecture Series featured the screenwriter and playwright who brought audiences the political drama "The Ides of March" and the popular Netflix series "House of Cards." So, it came to a surprise to everyone that one of Beau Willimon's first admissions of the night was that he doesn't actually like politics. Read More: 'Why Pioneering British TV Writer Jimmy McGovern Thinks American Writers Are The Lucky Ones' Willimon candidly said, "politics was never like a 'thing' for me. I'm not a political junkie, I don't probably know more about politics than most of the people in this room. There's a lot of things I have to research in depth in order to write the show...The reason you guys probably showed up is because of 'House of Cards,' and so the two things that I'm most known for, 'Farragut North' »

‘House Of Cards’ Beau Willimon: The Obamas Watching The Show Is “Surreal” – Emmys

25 August 2015 8:02 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

House Of Cards showrunner Beau Willimon had written the play Farragut North, which became the 2011 George Clooney film The Ides Of March, but Willimon had, he says, "never worked on a TV show before." So it's perhaps all the more fun that House Of Cards has reaped awards and nominations at every turn since its 2013 incarnation. Cards was both the first Netflix original show and the first to release an entire season at once, pioneering TV binge-watching–a boon to Willimon… »

Marisa Tomei to Play Aunt May in New ‘Spider-Man’ Movie (Exclusive)

8 July 2015 11:02 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Now that Marvel and Sony have found their Peter Parker, the focus has turned to the aunt who raised him.

Sources tell Variety that Marisa Tomei is the choice to play Aunt May in the next installment of the “Spider-Man” franchise.

Sony and Marvel had no comment on the casting.

While insiders could not say where things stood in the deal-making process, they have added that an offer was made late last week for the Oscar-winning actress to join Tom Holland, who was recently tapped to play the web-slinging superhero.

Marvel and Sony recently hand-picked Holland to play Spider-Man after months of meetings and screen tests with eager young actors, in addition to selecting “Cop Car” helmer Jon Watts to direct the pic.

The studios are still in the process of finding a writer to join Watts in the screenwriting process but insiders explained that the top brass also wanted »

8 Reasons Why Tom Hardy Will Be The Biggest Actor Of 2015

1 May 2015 6:31 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Every so often, the stars will align in one particular year for an actor who’ll at last see their movie star status go supernova. In 2011, it was Ryan Gosling’s turn – as Drive, The Ides Of March and Crazy, Stupid, Love. finally tipped him over into superstardom – as well as Michael Fassbender’s, with X-Men: First Class, Jane Eyre and Shame bringing the Irish actor to the attention of the moviegoing public at large.

In 2015, it looks as though the year will belong to Tom Hardy. Already an actor of considerable acclaim amongst critics and serious cinema fans, Hardy’s impressive-looking line-up of upcoming projects this year should see his fame hit peak levels, as all the talk of him being “the best actor of his generation” at last reaches the masses.

It’s been coming for a while – Hardy hasn’t really stopped working since he »

From Actor to "Action!", Exploring the Debuts of 19 Actors-Turned-Directors

21 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the course of film history, we've seen plenty of long-time actors step behind the camera to take up their directorial ambitions. Clint Eastwood did it. Mel Gibson did it. George Clooney did it. What do these three have in commonc Well, for starters, they are all men, so there's that. Further, they are all white, but more on that later. More to the point of the article, these men all eased into their directorial careers by starring in their respective debuts, using their presence on screen to help market their talents off it. And with his feature directorial effort The Water Diviner, which hits limited theaters this week, Russell Crowe is just the most recent addition to a growing list of actors who have decided to try their hand behind the camera. Like Eastwood, Gibson, and Clooney before him, the Best Actor winner stars in his first feature as director, »

Actors-turned-directors: The good, the bad and the unwatchable

11 April 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

This month Alan Rickman's A Little Chaos, Ryan Gosling's Lost River and Russell Crowe's The Water Diviner see these performers make the dizzying leap from actor to director. But in which of their colleagues' footsteps might they follow?

We take a look at six different categories of actor-turned-directors.

The career-changers

Too handsome to be a supporting actor, and lacking the gravitas of a major star, Ben Affleck looked to be heading towards Kilmer-ville before he released Gone Baby Gone, a dark Dennis Lehane thriller he co-wrote and directed, with brother Casey taking the lead. Follow-up The Town proved solid, but his next effort, Argo, was a surprise Best Picture winner. The fact Affleck didn't receive a Director nomination suggests he's not yet been forgiven for the likes of Gigli, but the forthcoming Lehane adaptation Live By Night should fix that.

Ryan Gosling makes an intriguing directorial debut with “Lost River”

8 April 2015 11:59 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

I’m a huge fan of Ryan Gosling as an actor, frankly considering him to be among the very best of this generation. As such, I was very interesting in his first foray behind the camera, which happens to be the dark fairy tale of sorts Lost River. He’s worked with some top notch directors in the past, so some interesting things had to have rubbed off on him. Well, he wears a number of influences on his sleeve in Lost River, oddly enough including David Lynch in a huge way. His debut film is a divisive one, but it’s a debut that I think suggests a bright future as a filmmaker. Gosling has a who’s who list of directors that he’s worked with in his career so far, including Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Half Nelson), Nick Cassavetes (The Notebook), Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine and »

9 Things Ryan Gosling Stole From Ryan Gosling Movies in His Directorial Debut, Lost River

31 March 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Ryan Gosling's directorial debut, Lost River, will finally hit a (small) number of theaters, and VOD, on April 10. Gosling's freshman effort debuted at last year's Cannes Film Festival, where it was promptly slammed by critics. One of the main complaints? That the film, which Gosling also wrote, feels like a mishmash of styles cribbed from several more-established directors: David Lynch, Terrence Malick, and Gosling's Drive and Only God Forgives director, Nicolas Winding Refn, among them. That may be true, but when I caught the Cannes premiere screening of Lost River, I was struck more by all the elements in the movie that reminded me of elements from other Ryan Gosling movies. Here are a few devices, props, and people from Gosling's past work that pop up in subtle - and not-so-subtle - ways in his first behind-the-camera effort: Detroit Gosling returned to Detroit, where much of his film The Ides of March was shot, »

Ryan Gosling-Directed 'Lost River' Gets Extended Red Band Trailer

30 March 2015 9:51 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

"The wolves, if they're not already at your door, they're gonna be there very fucking soon." If you though the previous Us trailer and international trailer for Ryan Gosling's directorial debut Lost River were weird, then this new extended trailer for the Cannes selected film is really going to creep you out. For some reason, it's labeled as a featurette, but this is clearly an extended red band trailer with salty language, unnerving peeling of Christina Hendricks' face, Ben Mendelsohn dancing and some gorgeous cinematography. It certainly looks beautiful, but feels like it's trying to be weird for the sake of being weird. Here's the new red band trailer for Ryan Gosling's Lost River from Warner Bros. Pictures: You can still watch the first Us trailer for Lost River right here. Lost River (formerly known as How to Catch a Monster) is written and directed by Ryan Gosling (star of Drive, »

Adams, Gyllenhaal and Phoenix Line Up for Tom Ford's 'Nocturnal Animals'

26 March 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amy Adams is currently in talks for the lead role in fashion designer/film director Tom Ford's sophomore feature Nocturnal Animals, with Jake Gyllenhaal attached to play Adams' male counterpart. Further, Joaquin Phoenix and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are also being sought for key roles in the film, a bit of casting that would reunite Phoenix with Adams, whom he acted opposite in 2013's Her. With Adams, Gyllenhaal, and Phoenix potentially working together in the same film, I'd say that alone makes this worth keeping an eye on, but the fact it is a thriller, my favorite genre of film, piques my interest even more. Add in George Clooney and Grant Heslov (The Ides of March) as producers and you've basically got me stashing away funds for a ticket to the film, which Ford adapted from Austin Wright's 1993 novel "Tony and Susan". Below is the synopsis of Wright's novel, »

Ryan Gosling Opens Up About Being Arrested

14 March 2015 9:27 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Gosling has turned badass, well sort of.

In 2011, after rapping up the George Clooney directed The Ides of March in Detroit, the actor/director felt inspired by the grittiness of city, and stayed to do some R&D work for his upcoming directorial debut in the film Lost River.

Gosling, equipped with a digital camera, lurked around abandon factories snagging any useful footage he could use. On the other hand, the Detroit Police department must not get out to the local movie theater often, because they detained the actor for suspicion of stealing copper. Imagine that.

“I’m not proud that I was arrested, but it did give me one of the central pieces for the main character,” Gosling told The Hollywood Reporter.

He used to be so innocent. At least it wasn’t all for nothing. Ryan actually used some of the footage in the opening scene of the movie. »

Ominous & Odd International Trailer for Ryan Gosling's 'Lost River'

19 February 2015 7:57 AM, PST | | See recent news »

"The only way to break the spell is to bring peace to the surface." After the first peculiar trailer for Ryan Gosling's directorial debut Lost River arrived not too long ago, an international trailer gives us another look at the very strange film. Christina Hendricks, Iain De Caestecker, Ben Mendelsohn and Saoirse Ronan star in the film that is full of dark fantasy and gorgeous imagery. But it looks like Gosling just may have been trying too hard to make this one work in the end. It feels like the kind of film that sounded good and beautifully artistic on paper but doesn't end up connecting with the audience. Watch? Here's the new international trailer for Ryan Gosling's Lost River from The Film Stage: You can still watch the first Us trailer for Lost River right here.

First Trailer for Ryan Gosling's Peculiar Directorial Debut 'Lost River'

3 February 2015 10:11 AM, PST | | See recent news »

After debuting at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, Ryan Gosling's directorial debut Lost River is heading to theaters and VOD this spring. But if you're more of a mainstream fan of Gosling, this doesn't look like it's going to be something you'll enjoy. Gosling has opted to go with a surreal style for his first time behind the camera, and sadly it seems to be weird just for the sake of being weird. The buzz, or rather lack thereof, from Cannes seems to echo that sentiment. But there's a good cast here with Iain De Caestecker, Eva MendesChristina Hendricks, Saoirse RonanBen Mendelsohn and Matt Smith starring. Watch! Here's the first trailer for Ryan Gosling's Lost River from Warner Bros. Pictures: Lost River (formerly known as How to Catch a Monster) is written and directed by Ryan Gosling (star of Drive, The Ides of March, Crazy Stupid Love), making his feature directorial debut. »

Ryan Gosling's Directorial Debut 'Lost River' to Get Limited Release

2 January 2015 9:15 AM, PST | | See recent news »

There were rumblings just before 2015 rolled in that the directorial debut of Ryan Gosling, the Cannes selected film Lost River, would not get a theatrical release. However, THR reports that the film will get a limited release on the big screen after all, on the same day of the primary release on VOD. However, if you want to see the film in theaters, you need to live in New York City or Los Angeles. The film didn't really get much buzz after premiering at Cannes last year, but surely many are interested to see what Gosling does behind the camera with Christina Hendricks, Matt Smith, Iain De Caestecker and more in the cast. Lost River (formerly known as How to Catch a Monster) is written and directed by Ryan Gosling (star of Drive, The Ides of March, Crazy Stupid Love), making his feature directorial debut. Set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city, »
