Exclusive: Voltage Productions has set Gabriele Muccino to direct Fathers And Daughters, a Black List script by Brad Desch. Voltage is out to cast on the film and is looking to sell it here at Cannes. Muccino helmed the Will Smith films The Pursuit Of Happyness and Seven Pounds after coming to Hollywood off the success of L’Ultimo Bacio. The plot: a Pulitzer-winning writer grapples with being a widower and father after a mental breakdown. Much later, his grown daughter struggles to forge connections of her own. The film will be produced by Voltage’s Craig J. Flores and Nicolas Chartier and Busted Shark Productions’ Sherryl Clark. Clark, whose credits include Cloverfield and Morning Glory, developed the screenplay with Desch and it was one of the first projects under her new shingle Busted Shark. Voltage bought it after the script made the Black List. Desch separately set his script Shotgun Lovesongs at Fox Searchlight, »

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.) The 42 movie brought in an estiamted $8.5 million at 3,003 U.S. and Canada venues on Friday (April 12) and by Sunday evening may possibly »

42 is primed to strike a victory for quality this weekend, though there are plenty of variables that could give Scary Movie 5 a sneaky win. Let's break it down! Finding a comparable for 42 isn't an easy task. Is it Cinderella Man, Glory Road or The Blind Side? You've got openings in the neighborhood of $18 million, $13 million and $34 million, which is to say the results are far from conclusive. The reviews have been mostly positive, and a baseball movie is well-timed, plus we're still in the residual spring break time period. There aren't bankable stars involved (unless you want to argue Harrison Ford, in which case I'd throw Firewall and Morning Glory your way) and it is spotting Scary Movie 5 somewhere around 100 theaters. I'm predicting $29 million and a first place victory, but... Another scary factor in trying to call this weekend is I'm also trying to hit the exact moment »

Another big-name Hollywood star has been added to the "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" billing.
Rumors previously spread that Meryl Streep would be making a cameo appearance in "Anchorman 2," but Steve Carell shot those down. "When I did 'Hope Springs,' [Meryl] mentioned she was a fan and she said, 'Oh, I'd love to be in it,'" Carell, who plays Brick Tamland, told "Access Hollywood" in March. "But that's not gonna [happen] -- that's not a thing. She's actually busy -- she can't do it."

Harrison Ford is not a funny actor. He doesn’t do funny movies. But he certainly made us laugh in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, talking about two upcoming roles — as the man behind Jackie Robinson in 42, and a small part in Anchorman 2. The latter film, as we learn, stars “Applesauce Girl” and “Whatshisname.”
Poor Christina Applegate. At least Ford’s character won’t be like his jowly turn as a newscaster in 2010′s Morning Glory. “I hope it’s a little different. One hates to repeat themselves. They asked me to do it before they knew I had done Morning Glory, »

Harrison Ford was cast in "Anchorman 2" back in early March -- and spotted on the set soon thereafter -- but don't think he's definitely going to appear in "Anchorman 2" when it arrives in theaters this December.
"I hope it's a little different. One hates to repeat themselves. They asked me to do it before they knew I had done 'Morning Glory,'" he said. When asked if that bit of information gave producers Adam McKay and Judd Apatow pause, Ford joked that they hadn't "changed their mind," but did add that "it would be easy enough to cut out."
As for working on the highly anticipated comedy, Ford seemed nonplussed by the gig. "Bizarre," he said of the experience. »

"I hope it's a little different. One hates to repeat themselves," Ford answered. "They asked me to do it, before they knew that I had done Morning Glory."
He continued: "It'd be easy enough to cut out. I don't think it's critical… [It was] bizarre. They weren't all in the scene that I did. It was just [Ferrell] and the applesauce girl [Applegate]."
The movie »
It was almost a year ago that we saw the first trailer for the ensemble comedy, The Big Wedding. Originally set to be released late last year, Lionsgate opted to push its release back to the spring, and now its arrival is finally imminent.
Hitting theatres at the end of next month in the Us, and at the end of May in the UK, the studio have released a new UK trailer and quad poster to give you a taste of what to expect.
With an all-star cast led by Robert De Niro (Meet the Fockers, Analyze That), Katherine Heigl (27 Dresses), Diane Keaton (Morning Glory, Annie Hall), Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia) and Topher Grace (In Good Company), with Susan Sarandon (Shall We Dance) and Robin Williams (Good Will Hunting), The Big Wedding is an uproarious romantic comedy about a charmingly modern family trying to survive a weekend wedding celebration that »

"Anchorman: The Legend Continues" could include an appearance from another legend. According to Steve Carell, three-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep is such a big fan of "Anchorman" that she wants to participate in the new film.
"Meryl Streep told me she was a huge Anchorman fan and she’d love to have a cameo in the sequel," Carell told ShortList.com. "That could be really funny. There are going to be plenty of great cameos in this movie."
"Anchorman 2" is already chockablock with big names: in addition to original cast members Carell, Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd and Christina Applegate, "The Legend Continues" will also feature appearances from Kristen Wiig, James Marsden and Harrison Ford. The iconic Ford was recently cast as a veteran news anchor, a role that could be similar to the one he played in "Morning Glory."

Harrison Ford has signed up to play a veteran newscaster opposite Will Ferrell and Steve Carell in the forthcoming sequel to Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Ford, 70, also played a news anchor in the 2010 comedy Morning Glory. He will begin filming his role in Anchorman: The Legend Continues in Atlanta later this month. The sequel sees the return of Ferrell as misogynist San Diego news presenter Ron Burgundy, as well as Christina Applegate as erstwhile rival Veronica Corningstone; Paul Rudd, as fashion-oriented lead field reporter Brian Fantana and Carell as intellectually-challenged weatherman Brick Tamland. Also joining the cast is Bridesmaids' Kristen Wiig, who will reportedly play a love interest for Tamland.
The original 1970s-set Anchorman, which debuted in cinemas in 2004, saw Burgundy and Corningstone square »

News Flash: The Human Torch has been denied a bank loan...
Ford is fresh from the newsroom himself, playing an anchorman in the 2010 comedy Morning Glory. His character in Anchorman 2 is said to be a legendary newscaster in the mould of Tom Brokaw (for British readers, maybe think Trevor McDonald).
Anchorman 2 will begin shooting this month in Atlanta, and also stars the original's Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate and David Koechner, as well as other new additions Kristen Wiig, James Marsden and perhaps the recently-rumoured John C. Reilly.
Will Ferrell and Adam McKay have written the screenplay, with the latter once again taking up directing duties, while Judd Apatow is producing. The film is scheduled for a 20th December release later this year in both the Us and UK.
So until then, »

Harrison Ford, you might conclude, had rather a good time working on the recent rom-com, Morning Glory. It's not a bad little movie either, giving Ford one of his best recent roles as a gruff, miserable news anchor, who gets switched to breakfast television. And Rachel McAdams is great in it too.
Back to Ford, though. He's set to take on the role of a news anchor again for his next project, which just happens to be Anchorman: The Legend Continues. It's been revealed that he's the latest addition to the now-shooting comedy sequel, which is seeing Will Ferrell reprising the lead role of Ron Burgundy.

• Harrison Ford is set to play another seasoned, Tom Brokaw-esque newscaster, according to a THR report. Thankfully he’ll bring his curmudgeonly charm to Anchorman: The Legend Continues, and not a Morning Glory sequel. Things had been somewhat quiet for Ford since 2011′s Cowboys and Aliens, but he’s been ramping up his on-screen presence lately with roles in the upcoming Jackie Robinson biopic 42 and the highly anticipated Ender’s Game adaptation.

Harrison Ford as a possibility for Star Wars is one thing. But here comes something that could be even more fun: Adam McKay has long talked about gathering a great cast for Anchorman: The Legend Continues, but we didn’t expect a cinematic icon. Yet it’s true: Ford is on board!Following his grumpy turn as a news anchor in Morning Glory, Ford has signed on to the Anchorman sequel to play another legendary newscaster who will match wits with Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy.As McKay told us himself, the film finds Ron, Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), Champ Kind (David Koechner) and Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) headed to New York as the ‘70s dawn and cable news becomes big.Also aboard so far are James Marsden, Kristen Wiig, Dylan Baker, Meagan Good and, if the rumours are true, John C Reilly.

Thoughts by Tsr: Harrison Ford as a Tom Brokaw-esque newsman is something I can get on board with. It’s not unfamiliar territory for him – you may recall Morning Glory being a thing that exists – but he wasn’t bad playing a crotchety ol’ newscaster. Hopefully Will Ferrell and Adam McKay can bring out the best in him. He has quite a bit of stuff on the horizon – Ender’s Game, Paranoia, and Jackie Robinson biopic 42 all coming this year – so maybe he’s going to be getting himself back on track after nonsense like Cowboys & Aliens. While it’ll be cool to see Ford hopefully letting loose, »

Before he returns as Han Solo, Harrison Ford will strut his comedic prowess in everybody’s most anticipated comedy sequel, Anchorman: The Legend Continues. Ford will play a legendary newscaster, a role he’ll be familiar with as he played one in Morning Glory, a surprisingly enjoyable lighter variation on Network.
I can just imagine the brilliance we’ll see if Ford squares off against Will Ferrell. Ford will join newcomers to the cast that include James Marsden, Kristen Wiig, John C. Reilly, Meagan Good, and Terence Stamp.

We’re waiting to find out if 70-year old Harrison Ford is reprising his other iconic role, by playing a silver-haired Han Solo in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII. While debates carry on about the pros and cons of Ford and his fellow original trilogy cast members returning for more adventures in a galaxy far, far, away, the seasoned fan-favorite actor has agreed to stretch his comedy muscles with an appearance in the Will Ferrell sequel Anchorman: The Legend Continues.
Coincidentally, Ford’s previous (rare) foray into the genre was the Rachel McAdams flick Morning Glory, which Abrams co-produced. There, he played a curmudgeonly reporter/anchorman who’s drawn out of retirement, only to constantly bemoan and complain about the current state of news journalism and media affairs.
THR says that Ford has singed on for the Anchorman sequel, ...
