Look Back at Ryan Gosling's Heartthrob Evolution

11 November 2014 4:38 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

With Ryan Gosling's 34th birthday on Nov. 12, we're looking back on his time in the Hollywood spotlight. He's been winning hearts and weakening knees for two decades, charming fans on screen and off with his witty one-liners and swoon-worthy smirk. Back in the early '90s, he captured the crowd's attention at a talent show before bringing his smooth moves to The Mickey Mouse Club. From there, Ryan became a teen heartthrob, a romantic leading man, and a fan favorite so lovable that people actually petitioned for him to be People's 2011 Sexiest Man Alive. Most recently, Ryan became a dad. Actually, let's rephrase that - Ryan is officially a hot dad. In honor of his approaching birthday, go all the way back to Ryan's adorable days on the Disney channel to see his heartthrob evolution from adorable crooner to Hollywood's hottest Dilf.

Ruben Fleischer To Direct Movie About 90-Year-Old Drug Mule

4 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Gangster Squad helmer Ruben Fleischer has been tapped to direct the story of Leo Sharp, the Indiana man who this year was caught running drugs for Mexico’s Sinaloa Cartel and was sent to the slammer at age 90. An award-winning horticulturist and decorated WWII veteran known for his prized day lilies, Sharp was busted by the feds in 2011 while hauling $3 million in cocaine down the Michigan interstate in his Lincoln pickup truck. He had been one of the cartel’s most prolific drug couriers.

Imperative Entertainment acquired rights to Sam Dolnick’s Nyt Magazine article on Sharp, “The Sinaloa Cartel’s 90-Year-Old Drug Mule.” They’re looking for a writer to tell the story of how the ex-war hero was tracked down by DEA agents who only had the nickname Tata, or Grandfather, to work with. Sharp’s lawyers convinced a jury his dementia sent him on the wrong path and he got three years. »

Zombieland 2 Gets A New Writer

1 October 2014 3:35 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

After Amazon's unsuccessful attempt to turn it into a TV show and director Ruben Fleischer's disappointing follow-ups, 30 Minutes Or Less and Gangster Squad, it makes sense that Sony are nutting up once more. That's right, hold on to all your remaining Twinkies, because Zombieland 2 is a-coming.With Fleischer definitely back on board, you'd hope the writers of the 2009 zom-comedy would be too, but Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have moved on to other things: they're making Deadpool, the Watch Dogs game adaptation and, um, G.I. Joe Retaliation. Taking their place for the zee-quel is David Callaham, hot off doing a rewrite for Ant-Man as well as penning Godzilla.Zombieland's worldwide gross came in at $102 million (off a $23.6 million budget), and until World War Z it was the highest grossing zombie flim ever released in America. Sony and Fleischer will be hoping for something similarly successful second time around, »

Leonardo DiCaprio to produce Yellowstone female alpha wolf movie

29 September 2014 2:27 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Leonardo DiCaprio is to produce American Wolf.

The film will be an adaptation of Nate Blakeslee's book about O-Six, the famous female leader of a wolfpack at Yellowstone National Park.

In 2010, there was an outcry as she was legally shot by a hunter, which led many to campaign for new hunting regulations.

The book has yet to be completed, but the Wolf of Wall Street star has already signed on to produce the film version.

DiCaprio will produce alongside Kevin McCormick (Gangster Squad), but while publishing rights were recently bought for a seven-figure sum by Crown in the Us and Knopf in Canada, no further details of the project have been announced.

DiCaprio has recently been appointed Messenger of Peace for the United Nations.

It was also revealed that he will star alongside Brad Pitt and Robert De Niro in a short film by Martin Scorsese. »

17 September 2014 1:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Indie romcom “Two Night Stand” features a wealth of players on a path to making a bigger name for themselves, from former “America’s Next Top Model” contestant Analeigh Tipton to Scott Mescudi, better known as hip hop artist Kid Cudi. But perhaps the most notable rising star at film’s Tuesday premiere at the Tcl Chinese Theatre was director Max Nichols, son of director Mike Nichols.

“My whole life I’ve had this incredible ongoing conversation with my dad about art and films and life and love,” said the younger Nichols, “and here was an opportunity to take all those amazing years around the dinner table and actually channel it into a specific work.”

Two Night Stand” marks Nichols’ debut feature effort, having mainly worked on music videos throughout his career. Producer Ruben Fleischer, whose directing credits include “Zombieland” and “Gangster Squad,” felt he was being overshadowed as a »

8 Stars Toronto Could Do Without at Tiff

2 September 2014 2:10 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's no secret that stars aren't always on their best behaviour at all times. After all, when the whole world worships you, it can pretty easily go straight to your head. It can make you believe that the same rules of etiquette (and even the law) don't apply to you. You're above it.

We've all heard whispers of Mariah's demands for white furniture, Beyonce's insistence on brand-new toilet seats and Britney's strict orders for Cheetos and cheeseburgers. But diva behavior isn't limited to divas. A handful of actors have infamously worn out their welcome on the Toronto Film Festival's red carpet with their diva antics and entitled behaviour. And hey, we're Canadian; that kind of attitude doesn't really fly at the film festival renowned for bringing stars and regular folks together to bask in a mutual love of cinema.

While most stars are nothing but gracious at Tiff, there are a few whose ridiculous demands, »
