Parks and Recreation actor Jim O’Heir joins Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky

22 August 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Actor Jim O’Heir took to social media on Sunday to announce that he will soon be shipping out to Atlanta, Georgia to work on Steven Soderbergh’s directorial return, Logan Lucky. While he didn’t offer up any clues as to who he’ll be playing in the 2017 heist film, he did mention that he’ll be needed “for a couple of weeks” of shooting, which could mean that he has a fairly sizable role. Read the actor’s message below…

O’Heir is best known for playing inept government employee and lovable punching bag Jerry Gergich on Parks and Recreation for seven seasons, but the actor has a multitude of other credits to his name, including roles in Curb Your Enthusiasm, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Veep.

He will be sharing the screen with some of the hottest stars in Hollywood right now, including Channing Tatum »

Matt Damon talks returning to the role of Jason Bourne

Matt Damon talks returning to the role of Jason BourneMatt Damon talks returning to the role of Jason BourneColin Covert7/25/2016 3:18:00 Pm

"Why would he come back now?”

So asks Tommy Lee Jones’ stern CIA chief about the surprise return of Jason Bourne, the tough-as-nails rogue field agent played by Matt Damon. After three films where the fugitive agent couldn’t be intercepted, followed by a decade spent off the grid (and movie screens), he’s back for the aptly titled Jason Bourne.

Why would he come back now? Damon, director Paul Greengrass, Universal Studios and a huge fanbase simply wanted to see Bourne born again.

Before Damon played Jason Bourne in director Doug Liman’s 2002 franchise kickoff The Bourne Identity, his career largely consisted of sensitive dramatic parts or supporting comic roles. Few of them showcased the Oscar-winning skills he displayed as co-writer and star of 1997’s Good Will Hunting. »

Steven Soderbergh to Produce Movie on Panama Papers Leak

7 July 2016 6:04 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Steven Soderbergh has signed on to produce a movie based around the leak of the Panama Papers, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Panama Papers encompass more than 11 million leaked documents from the Panamanian company Mossack Fonseca. The disclosure of the materials by an anonymous whistleblower revealed Mossack Fonseca's extensive efforts to help the world's super-rich conceal wealth and evade taxes. News outlets published the first stories on the documents in April.

The story of the massive leak will be chronicled in The Secrecy World, a forthcoming book by Jake Bernstein. »

Steven Soderbergh's Comeback

7 July 2016 5:45 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Steven Soderbergh is retired no more. The director, who had previously announced Side Effects (2013) as his last feature film, is making two movies in the next year or so. It was just announced that he will be directing a feature film about The Panama Papers, the leaked documents which revealed how many of the super-rich employ legal, but dodgy accounting systems to avoid taxation. Even some luminaries in the film world (Emma Watson, Pedro Almodovar and the estate of Stanley Kubrick) were named in that scandal. The film will be based on Secrecy World, a to-be-published book by the Pulitzer prize-winning reporter Jake Bernstein. The adaptation will be written by frequent Soderbergh collaborator Scott Z Burns (Contagion, Side Effects, The Informant!).

Sounds like another Contagion, no? Taking a global incident and examining it from different points of view. Before that he will make Ocean’s Fourteen -- well not exactly, »

Panama Papers Movie in the Works From Steven Soderbergh

6 July 2016 5:38 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Steve Soderbergh is producing and may direct an untitled movie about the Panama Papers along with Lawrence Grey’s Grey Matter Productions and Anonymous Content.

Grey, Michael Sugar, Scott Burns and Soderbergh are producing, with Burns writing the script. Sugar was one of the four producers who received a best picture Academy Award for “Spotlight” in February.

The project is based on the upcoming book “The Secrecy World” by Jake Bernstein, senior reporter on the team that broke the Panama Papers story. The book will be published by Henry Holt in fall of 2017.

UTA came on board in April to begin selling the film rights to “Secrecy World,” an account of the leak of 11 million documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca about dubious global financial transactions. The Panama Papers were leaked by International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and provided details of how the wealthy and powerful used the law firm to escape scrutiny. »

15 Great Ways Filmmakers Found Their Independence In The Last 20 Years

4 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Subverting the Unexpected

At the end of the 20th century, Bobcat Goldthwait’s legacy read like a cheap joke: He was a screaming comedian from the eighties best known as Zed in the “Police Academy” franchise who once tried at his hand at directing a movie (“Shakes the Clown”). Those achievements barely skimmed the surface of Goldthwait’s ability, as the ensuing years made clear, when Goldthwait completely transformed his career into one of the most provocative American filmmakers working today. With the microbudget “Sleeping Dogs Lie” (aka “Stay”), Goldthwait showed his potential to funnel taboo subject matters into oddly touching, relatable human dramas, a proclivity he kicked up to a whole new level with the subversive black comedy “World’s Greatest Dad,” which features Robin Williams in one of his all-time great roles.

Goldthwait has kept innovating, with each new movie offering a fresh perspective on the naive assumptions »

Rob Lowe on Grinding On After ‘The Grinder,’ and Why It Still Deserves Awards Love (Consider This)

20 June 2016 12:09 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The funny thing about the Emmys is how long the campaign season actually runs. Even though the first round of voting takes place in June (with nominations announced on July 14), the PR machines kick in as early as February – for awards that aren’t announced until September 18. That means some Emmy “For Your Consideration” interviews are conducted long before stars and producers learn the fate of their shows.

Such was the case of Rob Lowe and his exquisite experiment, “The Grinder.” Indiewire spoke with the talented thespian a month before Fox axed the critically-hailed comedy, and — while we spoke again for the season finale — what he had to say at the time is relevant to what happened to “The Grinder.” We talked to him again after news of the cancellation hit, and the below interview represents a lightly edited transcript of those two conversations.

John Travolta and Rob Lowe on Comedy, Favorite Roles and the Secret of their Long Careers

1 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When John Travolta sat down with Rob Lowe at Variety’s “Actors on Actors” studio, they bonded immediately. It wasn’t just about their impressively long careers, though they did swap tales about the pitfalls they’ve faced throughout. Or their ability to transition from television to film and back again. But Lowe stunned Travolta (and the audience) with his tale of being disappointed at missing out on the role of Christian Troy in “Nip/Tuck” — and confronting Ryan Murphy. When he finally met the producer, Lowe said Murphy told him, “Rob, don’t you know I wrote that part for you?” But the script never made its way to the actor, because, as Lowe recalled, Murphy was “not Ryan Murphy yet,” he said. “Isn’t that a great Hollywood story?”

Daniel Craig to star in Steven Soderbergh's Logan Lucky

Steven Soderbergh's Nascar-set action thriller is to be led by Daniel Craig...

Steven Soderbergh's return to feature movie directing has landed a strong cast, with the news that Daniel Craig will be headlining Logan Lucky.

According to Deadline, Craig will be costarring with Katherine Heigl, Adam Driver, Seth MacFarlane, Channing Tatum, and Riley Keough in the high-speed crime thriller about brothers who conspire to shake up a Nascar race by committing an almost unthinkable heist. Few details about the undercover plot that has been let out of the gate so far.

Logan Lucky is a new starting line for Soderbergh, who had previously said to THR in 2015 that “I don’t have an interest in making another theatrical film unless my attitude changes or the business changes…film is increasingly fear-based in its decision-making, and that’s not a good base to be creative".

Michael Lombardo to Exit as HBO Programming President (Exclusive)

20 May 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Michael Lombardo is exiting his post as president of HBO Programming, according to industry sources, ending a 33-year run that made him a major player in the pay TV giant’s growth and evolution.

It’s understood that the decision to step down was Lombardo’s. HBO has been under unusual pressure on the programming front in recent months but sources said Lombardo was not pushed. He’s expected to work out a production pact with the network, a shift he has considered making for some time after nearly a decade at the top of HBO’s vast programming operations.

It’s not immediately clear how HBO will reorganize to fill Lombardo’s responsibilities. He oversees programming for HBO and Cinemax as well as HBO Films, HBO Sports and HBO Documentaries and Family. He also oversees HBO’s marketing, legal and business affairs departments.

Jack O’Connell to headline Netflix’s new show Godless

12 May 2016 9:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jack O’Connell (Money Monster, Unbroken) is set to lead the cast of Godless, the new Western drama series from Netflix.

Steven Soderbergh (Behind the Candelabra) and Scott Frank are behind the new show which is reportedly set in 1884 and “centers on Frank Griffin, a menacing outlaw who is terrorizing the West as he hunts down Roy Goode, his son-like partner-turned-mortal enemy. While Roy hides at Alice Fletcher’s ranch, Frank’s chase leads him to the quiet town of La Belle — that is mysteriously made up of entirely women.”

Frank, the screenwriter behing Get Shorty, Minority Report and Soderbergh’s Out of Sight, is penning the script and directing, and will also executive produce with Soderbergh and Casey Silver. O’Connell, who appeared in Channel 4’s Skins, will take the lead role of Roy.

O’Connell will next be seen in Jodie Foster’s Money Monster alongside George Clooney and Julia Roberts, »

Adam Driver set to join Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky, Seth MacFarlane also in talks

12 May 2016 1:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Adam Driver is set to join the cast of Logan Lucky, the new film from formerly retired director Steven Soderbergh.

Driver’s Midnight Special co-star Michael Shannon was due to feature in the film but due to scheduling conflicts the actor has had to drop out. In addition to Driver, Family Guy and Ted creator/star Seth MacFarlane is also reportedly in talks to join the cast, which already has Channing Tatum (Magic Mike Xxl) and Riley Keough (The Girlfriend Experience) in its ranks.

Soderbergh had previously stated a few years ago that he war retiring from directing films, but the script has seemingly won him over for him to return for the first time since 2013’s Side Effects and Behind The Candelabra. The new film revolves around “brothers who plan a crime during a Nascar race.”

HBO’s Lgbt History: The End

11 May 2016 8:01 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It's the final episode as Manuel has worked his way through all the Lgbt-themed HBO productions. 

I began this project because, after watching and recapping Looking here, I became fascinated with the idea that, with that Andrew Haigh show, the cable network had somehow reached peak gay TV even as it also managed to alienate the very viewers it was trying to coax. I wanted to, in a way, put Looking in context by watching everything HBO had produced and aired that had tackled Lgbt issues.

This required a lot of scavenging—despite their shiny HBOGo and HBO Now ventures, a lot of the network’s older and more obscure TV movies and shows remain unattainable. And so I reached back and watched a lot of not so great TV movies from the early 80s, caught up with key “very special episodes” of their most well-known dramas and comedies, and »

Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Logan Lucky’ With Channing Tatum, Michael Shannon & Riley Keough Gearing Up

Earlier this year, the trades fell over themselves in a muddle, reporting conflicting information about “Logan Lucky,” a project that would see Steven Soderbergh directing his first feature film since 2013’s “Side Effects” (of course, “Behind The Candelabra” was made for HBO, and blah blah blah “retirement,” let’s move on). At any rate, the news […]

Cannes archives: Screen's Jury Grid 2013 - winners and losers

6 May 2016 4:23 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

As Cannes approaches, Screen casts its eye back at the winners and losers of 2013 according to our jury of critics.

Each year, Screen International’s Jury Grid collates the verdicts of an international panel of critics to provide an impressively reliable prophecy of the year’s top prizes.

In 2013, the Screen International’s jury grid of critics were in complete agreement with the Cannes jury, and gave their top spot to Abdellatif Kechiche’s coming-of-age romance Blue Is The Warmest Colour.

The film, which the jury grid gave 3.4 out of 4, went on to win both the Palme d’Or and the Fipresci prize. It also made Cannes history by being the first film to be officially awarded the festival’s top prize for the work of its leading actors - Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux – alongside director Kechiche.

In second place, with 3.3, was Joel and Ethan Coen’s black comedy Inside Llewyn Davis. It was the »

Makeup & Hairstyling Guild Awards: Will they preview Emmys?

19 February 2016 11:57 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Saturday's Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Guild Awards mark the  third year back of this kudofest after a nine-year hiatus. In 2013, “Behind the Candelabra” won Best Movie/Mini Hairstyling and Makeup as it had at the Emmys. However, the guild’s five other TV categories went to programs that either had lost the equivalent races at the previous Emmys or would not win at the following ones. Given the membership overlap between the guild and the Emmys, the discrepancies were likely the result of different voting systems. Like other guilds, this one polled its entire membership to determine winners; the Emmys assembled a different small panel for each category. -Break- Subscribe to Gold Derby Breaking News Alerts & Experts’ Latest Oscar Predictions The Emmys dropped the panel process last year and opened up voting to the entire makeup and hair branch, so the correlation in winners doubled to four (“Downton Abbey” for. »

HBO’s Lgbt History Oscar Break: 1993 Supporting Acting Races

17 February 2016 9:57 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel is working his way through all the Lgbt-themed HBO productions.

 Last week we looked at some of HBO’s period dramas to see how Lgbt characters fared in ancient Rome, New York in the 1920s, and in the wild wild west. But now, we’re taking a two-week hiatus to play a game I like to call “Oscars What If…”

HBO has been producing great films for decades now and give or take an Elephant, they’ve been content to solely screen their made for TV movies on their network without any theatrical release. (Curiously, their documentary branch has been more eager to nab gold, understanding perhaps that statuettes can do wonders for that genre’s visibility). And, really, some years, you’re just left wondering how certain performances and films from HBO’s roster could have crashed that year’s Oscar race.

The two most obvious recent examples »
