Bob Marley's Daughter Helping Jamaican Team Reach World Cup Dream

3 July 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

No, this isn't the plot of a Disney movie - at least not yet. But, somewhere, a screenwriter is probably getting ready to type the opening scene. Bob Marley's daughter Cedella is helping the Jamaica's national women's soccer team raise money so it can go to the 2015 Women's World Cup, Rolling Stone reports. The Reggae Girlz (as they call themselves) have launched a fundraising campaign on Indigogo, hoping to raise up to $50,000 for "coaching, housing, proper nutrition and proper training" to carry the team through the next round of qualifying. Marley has lent her talents - and her family's name - to the team, »

Sheffield Doc/Fest 2014: Finding Fela Review

11 June 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Alex Gibney’s joint ventures into music and politics in recent years continues with a new biopic of legendary Nigerian Afrobeat musician, and steadfast activist, Fela Kuti. Peddling out of The Armstrong Lie, Gibney turns his attention to Bill T. Jones’ Broadway musical Fela!, twinning it with archival and borrowed footage to lead us on an equally heart-racing journey. Finding Fela has the makings of a classic music biopic: as thorough and soulful as Kevin Macdonald’s Marley, thrilling as Scorsese’s The Last Waltz all those years ago, or more recently Morgan Neville’s euphoric 20 Feet From Stardom, but follows an irresistible character in the same way Malik Bendjelloul’s Searching For Sugar Man did.

As with so many celebrated black singers, Kuti’s origins were humble: the Church was where his music career started. History often dictates the lives of these icons however; Kuti was soon politicised through »

Bob Marley And The Wailers Biopic In Development

23 April 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

A film based on the true story of Bob Marley and the Wailers is reportedly in the works, set up at Mandalay Pictures, with writer Barry Morrow (Rain Man) and producer Cathy Schulman (Crash) both said to be currently attached to the project - this according to Production Weekly, which I subscribe to. Titled Buffalo Soldiers (named after song written by Bob Marley), the biopic, as it's being described, will follow Marley and the Wailers and their many struggles faced on their way to eventual success.  The title and lyrics refer to the black U.S. cavalry regiments, known as "Buffalo Soldiers", that fought in the American Indian Wars in the last 1800s/early 1900s.

Thn’s Top 5 Cinematographers Who Became Directors

23 April 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With Wally Pfister’s directorial debut Transcendence opening on April 25th this is the perfect time to take a look at some of the best cinematographers in movie history who’ve become successful directors.

Pfister has been working with Christopher Nolan since Memento (2000) and the two were inseparable up until this point, with Pfister being Nolan’s Director of Photography on Insominia (2002), The Prestige (2006), Inception (2010) and The Dark Knight (2005- 2012) Trilogy. He even found time for Moneyball (2011) and music documentary Marley (2012).

Transcendence is his first foray into the world of feature-film directing and he’s supported by an impressive cast that includes Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany, and Kate Mara, plus Batman-alumni Cillian Murphy and Morgan Freeman. The film centres on terminally ill scientist Will Caster (Depp), who decides to upload his mind into a computer. Once achieved, it gives him power beyond his wildest expectations but then events »

The HeyUGuys Interview: Kevin Macdonald talks How I Live Now

11 February 2014 3:30 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The celebrated Scottish director Kevin Macdonald is known for his magisterially mounted, adult-inclined works of fiction that are shaded in politics and personal hardships. His movies have leaned toward Oscar glory (Forest Whitaker won Best Actor for his terrifying turn in The Last King of Scotland), while other films have displayed his particular talent for singling out narrative greatness in true-life stories (Marley most recently, and Life in a Day and Touching The Void before it).

His latest film, How I Live Now, which was released last year, is being released on DVD on February 10th – and to celebrate that fact, he dedicated some of his precious time to give HeyUGuys the lowdown on why young actors are better than old ones, his fondness for pulling the rug from beneath the viewer, and what the future holds for him (submarines, apparently). Beware: minor spoilers ahead.

Happy Bob Marley Day! Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Makes the Reggae Singer's Birthday a Canadian Holiday

6 February 2014 4:01 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Today would have been Bob Marley's 69th birthday. So Rob Ford (the mayor of Toronto who admitted to smoking crack during "one of [his] drunken stupors" and still holds office. Really!) decreed it Bob Marley Day.  (Apparently the city of Toronto has been honoring Bob Marley Day for years now, but it's Rob Ford we're talking about here, so what do you expect?) "Now Therefore, I, Mayor Rob Ford, on behalf of Toronto City Council, do hereby proclaim February 6, 2014 as "Bob Marley Day" in the City of Toronto," he wrote in his declaration. He continues to say Marley's music "broke music barriers" and calls Marley himself "one of the greatest ambassadors of peace the »

Rob Ford Proclaims Bob Marley Day In Toronto, Takes Day Off

5 February 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Toronto mayor Rob Ford, who refuses to step down from office despite his crack-smoking scandal, has proclaimed Feb. 6 – Bob Marley's birthday – Bob Marley Day in the Canadian city.

Rob Ford Declares Bob Marley Day

"Whereas each year on February 6, we honour the legacy of Robert (Bob) Nesta Marley, an influential musician, advocate for human rights and international ambassador of peace," read the proclamation. “His early career began with friends, the legendary Wailers, "Bob Marley and the Wailers." His music captivated people of all cultures, broke music barriers and helped introduce reggae music to the world.”

Bob Marley became one of the greatest ambassadors of peace the world has seen,” the proclamation continued. “He used music to tear down the walls of apartheid and promoted African unity, culture and world peace both at home and internationally, with songs like One Love and Africa Unite.

Kate Hudson, Zooey Deschanel, Danny McBride & Shia Labeouf join Rock the Kasbah

30 January 2014 4:32 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Barry Levinson’s upcoming independent comedy Rock the Kasbah has just got a whole lot more interesting. And given that Bill Murray came on board late last year to lead the project, that’s saying something.

Ahead of launching the film’s international sales at the European Film Market in Berlin next month, it’s been announced that Kate Hudson, Zooey Deschanel, Danny McBride, and Shia Labeouf have joined the cast, which also co-stars Bruce Willis alongside Murray.

Story follows a burned-out music manager who goes to Afghanistan on the Uso tour with his last remaining client. When he finds himself abandoned, penniless and without his passport, he discovers a young girl with an extraordinary voice, whom he sneaks back to Kabul to compete on the popular television show, “The Afghan Star,” Afghanistan’s equivalent of “American Idol.”

The Oscar-winning Levinson (Good Morning, Vietnam) directs from a script by Mitch Glazer (Magic City, »

Daft Punk Wins Album of the Year, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Lorde Win Big at 2014 Grammy Awards

26 January 2014 8:59 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The music industry's biggest night was filled with skin, surprises and tons of high notes. But unlike other awards shows, most of the trophies are passed out before the actual ceremony. In fact, Cyndi Lauper announced a few early winners in a pre-telecast event in Los Angeles. So who took home Grammy awards before the show aired? Michael Bublé took home his fourth Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album Grammy, while Ziggy Marley and Steven Colbert also earned top honors. The Comedy Central TV host won for Best Spoken Word Album, while Marley was awarded for Best Reggae Album. Adele also earned a Grammy earlier in the night, but was not on hand to accept the coveted »
