Josh Hutcherson to Star in James Franco’s ‘The Long Home’ (Exclusive)

1 May 2015 3:16 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Josh Hutcherson will follow the blockbuster “Hunger Games” franchise with a much smaller film, securing the lead in the James Franco-directed drama “The Long Home.”

Based on the novel by William Gay, “The Long Home” is set in the 1940s in rural Tennessee, where a young man (Hutcherson) goes to work building a honkytonk for a charismatic and diabolical bootlegger, unaware that the man had murdered his father 10 years prior. He runs into further trouble when he falls for the young woman the bootlegger is grooming to be a prostitute.

Franco is also expected to star, and will produce alongside Rabbit Bandini’s Vince Jolivette and Jay Davis. Robert Halmi Jr. and Jim Reeve are exec producing.

Franco previously cast Hutcherson in another directorial effort, “In Dubious Battle,” based on the John Steinbeck novel. A release date for that film has yet to be announced.

ABC Family’s ‘Shadowhunters’ Finds Simon & Isabelle for ‘Mortal Instruments’ Series

1 May 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC Family’s “Shadowhunters” saga series is filling out. Alberto Rosende and Emeraude Toubia have been cast as Simon and Isabelle, Variety has learned.

The two actors join Dominic Sherwood, who will play Jace, whose leading lady, Clary Fray, is yet to be cast.

Simon, intelligent and very handsome in a non-calculated kind of way, is Clary’s longtime best friend. An accounting student by day, Simon spends his free time performing in a band. His loyalty and feelings for Clary are tested as he fights alongside her on an epic journey.

Isabelle is an exotic-looking, beautiful Shadowhunter. An expert with her whip, and a trained fighter who can kill it in high heels, she’s just as lethal as she is attractive. Her one weakness, however, is her choice in men, as she always goes for the bad boy.

Based on the bestselling “Mortal Instruments” books by Cassandra Clare, »

Jamie Campbell Bower: 'The Mortal Instruments axe is disappointing'

1 May 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jamie Campbell Bower has echoed the thoughts of fans who were disappointed that a sequel to The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones will not be made.

The British actor played Jace Wayland opposite Lily Collins in the 2013 adaptation of Cassandra Clare's book, with plans for a series of sequels to follow.

However, the series was scrapped after the film didn't perform as well as expected, making over $90 million worldwide. It was initially marketed to become the next successful 'young adult' movie series, following Twilight, The Hunger Games and Divergent.

Campbell Bower told Digital Spy that he was sad to hear the movie series had been scrapped, but that he enjoyed making the film.

"Of course I was disappointed, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't," he said. "We were greenlit for movie two. I think placement, timing, all sorts of different factors led to [that decision]. We did well, but we didn't do supremely well. »

‘Taken 3′ Takes Top Spot on Home-Video Sales Charts

30 April 2015 8:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In its first week in stores, 20th Century Fox’s action sequel “Taken 3” shot to the top of the national home video sales charts the week ending April 26, ending a weeks-long dry spell of high-profile new releases.

The film, which earned $89.2 million in theaters, finds Liam Neeson reprising his role as retired CIA operative Bryan Mills, this time clearing his name after being framed for the murder of his wife. Its domestic theatrical take wasn’t nearly as much as that of the first two installments in the franchise, but the film still managed to outsell its nearest competitor, Warner’s “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” by a margin of more than 7 to 1. That’s a function, no doubt, of the fact that “The Hobbit” has been available for more than a month but remains high on the charts because of the conspicuous lack of any »

People, Jena Malone does not have time to be bothered by such restrictions. She has stuff to do! The Hunger Games actress was spotted running errands around town yesterday in a cute and casual outfit, but one thing was very clear—Malone decided to ditch a bra for the day. Hey, can ya blame her? Sometimes you just wanna let the girls roam free instead of making them succumb to an over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder. Especially when the errand is a quick run to the grocery store to grab some essential items for lunch. Malone was photographed on her way back from the store as she carried a few items in her hands while walking home in Los Angeles. She seemed to have just hopped out of the shower, with her »

30 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Success in Hollywood is a tricky game!   Elizabeth Banks has enjoyed a super successful career as an actress and is now jumping behind the camera as she directs the highly anticipated a cappella sequel "Pitch Perfect 2".   But getting there wasn't easy, as the 41-year-old admits that not every actress in her "age group" has been so lucky.   "There was a group of us girls coming up. A lot of us are surviving. Some of us are not," she explains in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter. "I used to go to auditions with Tara Reid. So, you know, we didn't all make it. We're not all still here. I do love 'Sharknado,'" she quickly added.   Ironically, the two have a lot more in common than one would think. The "American Pie" actress starred in a recent parody of "The Hunger Games" called"The Hungover Game," spoofing Banks' character Effie. »

Jeff Daniels Takes Major Role in Two-Part 'Divergent' Finale 'Allegiant'

29 April 2015 7:21 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following the trend of Harry Potter, The Twilight Saga and The Hunger Games, we already know that The Divergent Series: Allegiant will be split into two films. Allegiant - Part 1 will arrive on March 18th, 2016 and Allegiant - Part 2 will arrive on March 24th, 2017. That meas the entire franchise will have been release in just four years. That would be more impressive if the films had a little more substance (they're not terrible, just underwhelming), but young adult sci-fi is all the rage right now. Anyway, the finale might up the ante as THR reports Dumb & Dumber and "The Newsroom" star Jeff Daniels has joined. If you haven't seen The Divergent Series: Insurgent yet, then stop reading. As we learned at the end of the sequel, the faction program was created in order find the best and brightest people who would join the rest of society, which is very much »

28 April 2015 5:46 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The Divergent films might not so far have been quite the runaway successes to match, say the Twilight series or The Hunger Games, but they are doing well enough to keep the franchise humming along. Insurgent director Robert Schwentke is gearing up to start shooting at least the first of the pair of films based on Veronica Roth’s third tome, Allegiant, and Jeff Daniels has signed on for a major role.Note the requisite Spoiler Warning here for anyone who hasn’t read the books and isn’t already au fait with the plot. Allegiant finds Tris (Shailene Woodley) getting to the heart of the mystery surrounding the future society she’s been standing up against and the factions at its core. Daniels will be David, the leader of the Bureau of Genetic Welfare, which originally created the various factions. As Tris starts to learn – more towards the end »

28 April 2015 2:43 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Last fall, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay . Part 1 began what promises to be a devastating denouement to the film series. Yet, it mainly focused on the story's political nuances and left audiences with a bit of cabin fever since much of the film took place within the claustrophobic confines of a bunker. However, director Francis Lawrence promises that the upcoming second chapter will be quite different, classifying it as a war movie. Sitting down for an interview with MTV News, Lawrence, the director of both films, dished a bit on the drastic differences in tone and focus between Mockingjay . Part 1 and this year.s Mockingjay . Part 2. Revealing that shooting for the film is all but finished, save for one scene, he candidly discussed what the second part of the franchise finale brings to the table. According to Lawrence: It.s thematically very different. [.Mockingjay . Part 1′] was about the manipulation of media »
