I don’t know about you, but I need another Indiana Jones movie. After the cinematic monstrosity that was “Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls,” I need the character to finish on a high note. And star Harrison Ford isn’t getting any younger. Judging from his turns in “Morning Glory” and “Paranoia,” the guy’s acting isn’t getting any better. Let’s do this thing before he starts spending the majority of his days watering plastic plants in his backyard. If recent reports are to be believed, then the folks over at Disney recently snagged the distribution rights to any new Indiana Jones features from the boys and girls at Paramount Pictures. Since Mickey Mouse already has his rodent fingers all up in Lucasfilm, procuring the series from the aforementioned studio was the final piece of the puzzle. Although Paramount will retain distribution rights on the first four films, »

DeMarco who, in addition to working with Chandor on his 2011 Margin Call , has a diverse list of credits that includes Roger Mitchell's Morning Glory and both John Cameron Mitchell's Rabbit Hole and Hedwig and the Angry Inch .

You would be forgiven for expecting a romantic comedy. Richard Curtis, the director of About Time, is a rom-com legend who wrote the screenplays for Notting Hill, both Bridget Jones movies, and (his masterpiece) Love Actually. Rachel McAdams, the female lead, is no stranger to the genre (Morning Glory, Wedding Crashers, and, though it's not a -com, The Notebook). The credentials are impeachable here, and that's before we even get to the ads: The overhead shot of two people lying in bed with the covers up to their necks is like the international sign for "rom-com." This has meet-cute written all over it. To be fair to About Time, McAdams and her (very charming) male counterpart Domhnall Gleeson certainly do meet cute, and it is indeed a sentimental movie about love. If you enjoy Ben Folds songs and family bonding, then you will certainly be crying by the end of »

Sally Wainwright, writer of the BBC drama series about two widowed pensioners who rekindle a passionate relationship that started decades ago, revealed the sale at a Broadcasting Press Guild lunch on Monday (Oct 28).
Wainwright said the series was awaiting a greenlight from the Us broadcaster but if it went ahead, both she and Red executive producer Nicola Shindler would be credited as associate producers.
However, a deal with HBO is understood to be on hold as a result of the broadcast of the original UK series on rival channel PBS.
Wainwright said she would not have any personal involvement in a remake.
“I’ll be interested to see what it looks like but I wouldn’t want to be involved. If you’re happy to sell the rights, you’ve got »
Boy is it good to see Harrison Ford back on the deck of a starship, even if this time he’s the stuffy old guy with the big speeches. With Ford stepping into the battle mantra of Colonel Graff for Gavin Hood’s adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s classic Ender’s Game this weekend, we thought it would be a great opportunity to look at some of his strongest—and weakest—performances over the years.
Where does one even begin when looking at Ford, who’s really a massive icon for anyone who grew up in the 70′s and 80′s? There are the classic and quintessential characters that he gave face and shape to—Solo, Indy, Jack Ryan—and yet there’s an entire wealth of strong work covering many different approaches and genres. If you’re given to Ford’s softer side you might have warm memories of Regarding Henry, »

Two beautiful young corporate executives engage in a dangerous and tantalizing competition that will take a deeply personal and violent turn in Passion, the latest erotically-charged crime thriller from Brian De Palma (Blow Out).
Christine (Rachel McAdams, Morning Glory) is a driven, devious executive at the sleek Berlin office of an international advertising agency. When her ambitious but outwardly shy subordinate Isabelle (Noomi Rapace, Prometheus) comes up with a brilliant ad campaign for a smartphone, Christine shamelessly takes credit for it, hoping it will bring her a promotion and a transfer to the New York office. While appearing strangely forgiving, Isabelle in fact takes her elaborate revenge on her superior—which leads Christine to counterattack by setting up her own elaborate and deliciously sexy scheme to ultimately get her way. »
Le Week-End marks somewhat of a return to smarts for director Roger Michell. After helming two disappointments in a row (the mildly entertaining Morning Glory and the dreary Hyde Park on Hudson), Michell reteams with regular screenwriter and friend Hanif Kureishi for their third feature collaboration and an altogether richer affair. Together, they’ve carved a resonant, heartfelt and adult drama that’s exponentially superior to Michell’s aforementioned missteps.
In celebration of their 30th wedding anniversary, Nick (Jim Broadbent) and Meg (Lindsay Duncan) return to their honeymoon destination of Paris. While there, as they bicker, tussle and snipe repeatedly at one another, it becomes increasingly clear that the spark that was once so alive between them has sadly dissipated. It’s only when they find themselves at a party thrown by Nick’s more successful friend Morgan (Jeff Goldblum), however, that they’re forced to confront the issues hanging between them head on. »

With Maleficent set for release next summer, Walt Disney Pictures is moving forward with another live-action rendition of a classic villain, Cruella, based on Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians.
Aline Brosh McKenna has signed on to write the screenplay, although no story details were given. The writer also provided the script for Disney's live-action Cinderella, which is currently in production. Andrew Gunn (Sky High, Bedtime Stories, Race to Witch Mountain) is producing.
Cruella de Vil first appeared in Dodie Smith's 1956 novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians, which was adapted into the 1961 animated classic 101 Dalmatians, where Betty Lou Gerson voiced the iconic character.
This won't be the first live-action adapation of the character either, with Glenn Close playing the villain, who steals the adorable puppies to make a coat out of dalmatian fur, in Disney's 1996 live-action film 101 Dalmatians, as well as the 2000 sequel 102 Dalmatians.
It isn't known if Disney is »

Richard Curtis has suggested, in the run up to the release of About Time, that it's the last film he will direct. If true, it's not bringing the curtain down on an extensive movie directorial career - this is just the third feature he's helmed, after all. Nonetheless, he does sign off with a film that stands defiantly in the face of those who've been less than keen on the world that Curtis presents on the screen.
Because arguably, the universe that most of the films Curtis has written and directed are based in is as distinctive as the Marvel framework, or anything of that ilk. It's a removed slice of Britishness, where generally decent people stumble through slightly unreal situations, that nonetheless »
Goodbye blonde and hello red! ‘The Vow’ actress debuted some bolder locks while stunning in a couture train straight off the runway! Do you love Rachel’s overseas outfit for her big movie debut?
Rachel McAdams, 34, hit the red carpet on August 8 in a long number for the world premiere of her new flick, About Time. The leading lady posed for photos at the Somerset House in London, sporting a futuristic and fiery look.
Rachel is no red carpet novus, but she really impressed us last night when she wowed in a lilac two-piece from the Roksanda Ilincic Resort 2014 Collection. The floor-length skirt featured a gorgeous train that made the actress appear elegant as ever!
The long-sleeve top was held together by a metallic belt that made the outfit appear to be a long gown. However, our favorite part was the two-toned »

Fresh from her time away from our screens Jessica Alba is busy filling up her schedule with new projects. Her latest role comes in upcoming action thriller Stretch, directed by Joe Carnahan (The Grey, The A-team) and produced by Jason Blum (The Purge, Insidious).
The character she will be playing is not yet known but it looks to be a supporting role alongside stars Chris Pine and Patrick Wilson. Wilson, star of Insidious and Morning Glory, will play a limo driver named Stretch trying to clean up his act once and for all. That’s all well and good until Pine steps into the picture as a customer from hell with some pretty freaky requests on Stretch’s last shift. Ed Helms is also in line to play a fellow limo driver trying to keep Stretch on the straight and narrow.
Alba had a small role this year in Sundance Festival favourite A. »

While it’s hard to imagine that there is a sizable interest in seeing the cinematic telling of a yet-to-be-published graphic novel based on Charlotte Bronte’s “Jane Eyre” that not only moves the action to modern times but also appears to focus on Jane’s paramour/boss Edward Rochester, Fox 2000 seems to think so, as the studio has just paid “a deal worth low seven figures” for the rights to just such a novel. Alrighty then. THR reports that the studio has nabbed the rights to “Rochester,” a new graphic novel coming from Archaia Publishing about that very subject, and already set Aline Brosh McKenna to pen the adaptation. Details on the project are slim, but we’re certainly interested in seeing a nineteenth century-set novel about governesses and sprawling estates and orphans and loons in the attic translated to the modern age. We are, however, less interested in seeing the book’s plot translated through »

Baseball Biopic Surpassing Expectations: Will Easily Top Domestic B.O. Chart This Weekend Written and directed by Academy Award winner Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential screenwriter), and starring Chadwick Boseman as pioneering black baseball player Jackie Robinson and veteran Harrison Ford as the Brooklyn Dodgers' team executive Branch Rickey, the biopic 42 was the no. 1 movie at Friday's domestic box office; it'll surely be the weekend's top film, too. As per early, rough estimates found on the web site Deadline.com, the period drama will be the only movie grossing more than $20 million at the domestic box office. (See below more information about Scary Movie 5 and last weekend's holdovers.) (Pictured above are an unrecognizable Ford as the Brooklyn Dodgers' team executive Branch Rickey and Boseman wearing Robinson's baseball uniform.)
