In today’s roundup, Selma Blair has been cast in “Heathers,” and Katrina Law joins Crackle’s original drama “The Oath.”

Casting

A Man Called Ove review: Dir Hannes Holm (2017)

26 June 2017 12:17 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

A Man Called Ove review

A Man Called Ove opens with the titular Ove (Rolf Lassgård) at his lowest ebb. Six months previous, his loving wife, Sonja (Ida Engvoll) died of cancer and now he has just been let go from his job of 43 years in a very unceremonious manner. It is this moment that brings him to the decision to take his own life and join his wife. If is a rather morose opening, but like the main character himself, the stoic, hard exterior soon breaks away to reveal a film that has an enormous heart and a neighbourhood of characters that Ove and you will come to greatly care for.

Throughout Hannes Holm’s adaptation of Fredrik Backman’s novel, a dark streak of wit persists as we witness Ove’s numerous failed attempts at ending it all. Each attempt is used as a catalyst for an extended flashback, »

Clint Eastwood Is Returning to Acting

21 May 2017 3:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Clint Eastwood is one of those rare Hollywood stars who is a legend both in front of and behind the camera. While he's best known to most audiences as an actor, with decades of iconic performances, but he has also established himself as one of our finest filmmakers as well. In recent years, the multi-hyphenate has focused his energies more on filmmaking and less in acting, with his last on screen performance coming in his 2012 baseball movie entitled Trouble With the Curve, where he played an aging baseball scout. During an appearance at the Cannes Film Festival, the Hollywood icon suggested that he eventually will make his return to acting.

Variety attended a master class being put on by the actor-filmmaker at the Cannes Film Festival, where he discussed a variety of topics. The filmmaker stated that he does miss performing "once in a while but not often," while hinting »

Not the same old story… A look at films in which the elderly are portrayed as active and able

14 April 2017 11:05 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Andy Furlong

The Hatton Garden Job,which is released in cinemas this week,is a film based on a real life robbery that has been called the “largest burglary in English legal history”. A daring heist from an underground safe deposit facility in London that captured the public’s imagination as much due the advanced age of the criminals involved as the brazenness of the crime itself.

With that in mind we take a look at some other films in which the characterisation of the elderly is defined beyond the usual physical limitations and vulnerability associated with senior citizens.

 

Gran Torino

In many ways Clint Eastwood has been channelling the spirit of a grumpy old man as early as his 40s when he played Harry Callahan in the Dirty Harry series. Eastwood, perhaps more than anybody else, has cultivated the persona of the ageing hero for sometime now in films like Unforgiven, »

Interview: John Caroll Lynch for The Founder

8 February 2017 12:17 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

In The Founder, John Carroll Lynch stars as Mac McDonald – who, partnered with his brother Dick McDonald (Nick Offerman) – created the first McDonald’s restaurant in California in the 1940s. Based on a true story, the new film from director John Lee Hancock (Saving Mr. Banks), follows the trail of how traveling salesman Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton), impressed by the brothers’ innovative assembly-line approach to the kitchen, maneuvered himself into a position where he was ultimately able to take control of the company, transforming himself in the process to the ‘founder’ of an economic empire.

The Founder

Appearing in over 50 films and television productions, John Carrol Lynch first sprang to prominence in 1996 with the Coen brothers’ critically acclaimed, Fargo. His films include Gothika, Things We Lost in the Fire, Zodiac, Gran Torino, Shutter Island, and Crazy, Stupid, Love. On television, Lynch has starred in such popular series as The Drew Carey Show »
