Lupita Nyong'o and David Oyelowo to Star in Romantic Drama 'Americanah'

18 December 2014 3:45 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Earlier this year Lupita Nyong'o acquired the rights to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's award-winning 2012 novel Americanah, signing on to star as Nigerian émigré Ifemelu, as well as produce along with Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment. David Oyelowo has also signed on to star as romantic lead Obinze. The book is divine: beautifully written, emotionally complex, swooningly romantic and often bitingly funny. It's also full of razor-sharp insight on immigration and cultural identity, the shifting concept of home, and blackness in America, Nigeria, and Britain.

The project is guaranteed to be a meaty opportunity for Nyong'o and Oyelowo, but is still several steps away from production. Some questions:

1. Should we worry that the project doesn't yet have a script? I'd say no, in part because of my love for the source material, but largely due to the strength of Plan B producing. They've got a respectable filmography, and the last »

Aaron Sorkin Still In Bed With John Edwards Exposé ‘The Politician’

18 December 2014 3:11 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Aaron Sorkin is reconfirming his dedication to chronicling the rise and scandalous fall of a presidential candidate. The Newsroom and West Wing creator, one of Hollywood’s most outspoken voices in the recent Sony hacking attack, has extended his option on Nyt bestseller The Politician, Andrew Young’s explosive 2010 tell-all about the adultery scandal that ended former North Carolina Senator John Edwards’ 2008 Democratic Presidential campaign.

Young exposed shocking details of the married Edwards’ secret affair with campaign staffer Rielle Hunter that yielded an illegitimate child. The Politician revealed how Young, a volunteer in Edwards’ 1998 Senate run who became his trusted right hand man, was asked to help cover up Edwards’ adultery, fake paternity test results, and claim the child as his own for the Presidential hopeful.

The lid was blown when a tabloid newspaper uncovered the affair, which blindsided Edwards’ cancer-stricken wife Elizabeth and led to the implosion of Edwards’ presidential run. »

Jonah Hill and James Franco go serious in ’True Story' trailer

18 December 2014 11:13 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jonah Hill and James Franco are both part of Judd Apatow’s comedy crew, together taking lowbrow to new heights (depths?) over the last decade. But they’re also Academy Award nominees; Hill being a two-timer, earning props for "Moneyball" and "The Wolf of Wall Street," and Franco earning a nod for his leading work in "127 Hours." So why don’t they ever act like it when they’re together? Well, now they do, thanks to the cold-as-ice, non-fiction drama "True Story." Just in time to bring audiences down from their "Serial" high, Fox Searchlight has released the first trailer for theater director Rupert Goold's feature directorial debut, based on journalist Michael Finkel’s 2005 autobiographical tome "True Story: Murder, Memoir, Mea Culpa." Hill stars as Finkel, who fell from his job at the New York Times after fabricating stories while reporting from West Africa. Looking for new opportunities, »

Scott Foundas’ Top 10 Films of 2014

17 December 2014 3:28 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It was a year of many tortured geniuses onscreen — Alan Turing, Stephen Hawking, J.M.W. Turner, Brian Wilson — and behind the scenes, where directors like Bong Joon-ho, James Gray and Paul Schrader fought producers and distributors over final cut, and the right to see their films properly released. Of course, the very idea of distribution has become nearly as diffuse in the digital era as that of film itself, a material on which few movies are still made and even fewer shown — unless you happen to be Paul Thomas Anderson, Quentin Tarantino or Christopher Nolan, who earned the ire of some theater owners when he demanded they reinstall 35mm projectors if they wanted to screen his “Interstellar” two days early. In light of the film’s $600 million worldwide gross (and counting), one can only say: poor them.

Speaking of “Interstellar,” if there was one undeniable constant at the movies in 2014, it was time, »

Leaked Sony Emails Reveal Nasty Exchanges and Insults

9 December 2014 7:03 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In the latest fallout from the cyber-attack saga that’s enveloping Sony Pictures, a nasty exchange between studio co-chair Amy Pascal and producer Scott Rudin, and an ugly bashing by the hard-charging producer of key figures in the industry, including Angelina Jolie and financier Megan Ellison, appeared in several emails that leaked online Tuesday.

At the center of the fiery back-and-forth conversation between Pascal and Rudin, from Feb. 27 to Nov. 19 of this year, is the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic written by Aaron Sorkin. According to the emails, Jolie objected to David Fincher directing the “Jobs” film instead of her bid-budget remake of “Cleopatra.” Pascal asked Rudin, a producer on “Jobs,” to talk to the Oscar-winning actress about it, but Rudin said he didn’t “want to waste [his] time on this.”

“You Better Shut Angie Down Before She Makes It Very Hard For David To Do Jobs,” Rudin said in one email, »

Jonah Hill to Star in Todd Phillips’ Arms And The Dudes

6 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The Hangover director Todd Phillips has been developing a true crime comedy for awhile now called Arms and the Dudes. THR reports that he has cast Jonah Hill (Moneyball, The Wolf of Wall Street) in the lead role. The Wrap adds that Miles Teller (Whiplash, The Fantastic Four) is being pursued to take on a co-starring role opposite Hill.

Phillips was initially set to just produce the film, but apparently he will now direct it from a script he co-wrote with Jason Smilovic (Lucky Number Slevin). The movie is being adapted from a Rolling Stone article by Guy Lawsom.

The film will tell the story of two stoners from Miami Beach who became arms dealers for the U.S. government. You can read Lawsom’s full article on his official site here.

Both Shia Labeouf and Jesse Eisenberg were up for the lead role in the movie, but they both dropped out of discussions, »

Jonah Hill In Talks For Arms And The Dudes

3 December 2014 4:01 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Back in September director Todd Phillips had Jesse Eisenberg and Shia Labeouf in the frame to lead his true-life stoner CIA farce Arms And The Dudes. A delay to the start date sadly means both have had to drop out citing scheduling conflicts, however, and Phillips is now talking to Jonah Hill and Miles Teller about stepping into the breach.The film is based on an article for Guy Lawson wrote for Rolling Stone in 2011. The stranger-than-fiction premise involves two Miami slackers, David Packouz and Efraim Diveroli, who penetrated the "grey world" of international arms dealing and ended up with the Pentagon as a client. But a $300m contract to supply arms to America's allies in Afghanistan soon sent them seriously out of their depth in a very dangerous world.Hill, of course, has a proven track record both in stoner comedies and dramatic pieces like The Wolf Of Wall Street and Moneyball. »

From the Gotham Awards floor: Overheard and witnessed at the Oscar season kickoff

2 December 2014 6:26 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Aimlessly wandering around Cipriani Wall Street, the lavish home of New York City’s Gotham Awards, I wondered if anyone knew the awards season was in full swing. That morning, a critics group handed out the first batch of accolades. Present company would soon receive statues swaying the race towards buzzed about thespian thoroughbreds. It was "on."  Yet, this crowd didn’t have that awareness. This was way too chill. I was the only one wondering if "Under the Skin" could upset "Birdman," weighing options in anticipation of the question mark-filled Breakthrough Actor category. Somehow, a run-in with "Boyhood" star Ellar Coltrane ended with us wondering out loud, "What does it all mean?" in the existential sense.  So this is why everyone was downing bellinis. The Gotham Awards owns its quiet-before-the-storm identity. The show isn’t the Golden Globes drunken circus, nor is it top tier enough to warrant an intense competitive edge. »

'Foxcatcher' Review: You May Wrestle With It, But It's Definitely Worth Seeing

28 November 2014 5:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Foxcatcher" isn't a film about trapping animals, but it is captivating, and in its own way extremely wild. Based on a true story involving Olympic wrestlers, an heir to a great fortune, and a smouldering conflict that soon caught fire, this is a challenging-yet-rewarding film with some impeccable performances.

This is the one with Steve Carell wearing a funny nose, right?

Yeah, that's the one. It also stars Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo. In fact, if there's three things to recommend about the film, it's these actors. Performance-wise the film is incredible, with each actor stretching in ways that put them all at the top of their game.

Carell's quiet sociopathy is riveting, and he portrays John du Pont with an unsettling air that's intoxicating. That snout he wears may be costume affectation, but it gives his face just the right amount of arrogant aloofness to give the film its core tonality. »

Bennett Miller, 'Foxcatcher' Director, on His Inspiration and Casting Channing Tatum

27 November 2014 2:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

When you meet Bennett Miller in person, his films seem to make a bit more sense. A quiet, intense man, the cadence of his answers can be charitably described as "deliberate," while others might simply wish for him to speed up slightly and get to the point.

The same charges have been levied against his works by detractors, but fans of "Capote," "Moneyball," and now "Foxcatcher" revel in the lugubrious tone and torpid pace of the dialogue, while sudden, kinetic bursts of physical exertion punctuate without warning.

Moviefone Canada spoke with Bennett about "Foxcatcher" at the Toronto Film Festival, and we started by discussing a key scene that takes place behind a closed door, a metaphor (perhaps) for much of the film's narrative opacity.

Moviefone Canada: In my opinion, the most remarkable scene is the one that takes place behind the window. It embodies everything that you're doing with the »

Oscars 2015 nominations: 10 early frontrunners for Best Picture

26 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's that time of the year again. Which is to say that it isn't, yet, but it's close enough for us all to start speculating.

The 2015 Oscar nominations won't be announced until January, and thanks to the peculiarities of transatlantic release schedules, many of these contenders will barely have reached UK shores by then.

But we've now seen enough of the heavy-hitters to have a decent sense of how the next awards season is shaping up, and below we've rounded up our best guesses for the ten films that will dominate this year's Academy Awards.

Scroll all the way to the bottom to see our complete list of predictions for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress.

Steve Jobs Movie Picked Up by Universal

24 November 2014 7:14 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal Studios has picked up the Steve Jobs movie project, less than a week after Sony put the high-profile feature into turnaround.

Producers recently set Michael Fassbender to star as the late Apple mogul after Christian Bale dropped out. Seth Rogen is also in talks to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.

Based on Walter Isaacson’s biography “Steve Jobs,” the real-life drama is directed by Oscar-winner Danny Boyle and adapted by Aaron Sorkin. Scott Rudin is producing “Jobs” alongside Mark Gordon and Guymon Casady.

Universal was widely expected to take over the project.

Sony decided to abandon the tech drama on Nov. 19. The studio, which acquired rights to Isaacson’s book shortly after the mogul’s death in 2011, has not explained why it pulled out.

Sorkin has publicly said the movie would be divided into three long scenes, each before one of Apple’s notorious product launches, and that Jobs »

Bart & Fleming: On ‘Birdman,’ Sony PR Tsuris, Mike Nichols And Bill Cosby

23 November 2014 12:26 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Peter Bart and Mike Fleming Jr. worked together for two decades at Daily Variety. In this occasional column, two old friends get together and grind their axes, mostly on the movie business. 

Bart: Critics don’t like to admit it, but the conditions under which you see a film strongly influence your opinion. Birdman is a good example: If you see a film like this with a pack of cinephiles like at Telluride, everyone gets every inside joke, and you instinctively go along with the crowd. I made it a point to see Birdman with a paid civilian audience and it was like screening it in a mausoleum. No laughs, just occasional grunts and lots of walkouts. Some reviews predicted Birdman “will captivate arthouse and multiplex crowds alike and send awards pundits into orbit” (the Variety review). Well that ain’t happening with the audiences; we’ll see about the awards. »
