Sarah Paulson in negotiations to join cast of Ocean’s Eight

9 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sarah Paulson has been on quite the roll recently, starring in such critically acclaimed films and TV shows as Carol, American Horror Story: Hotel and The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, the latter two of which she earned Emmy nominations for in July, and, judging from a new report, it doesn’t look like she’ll be moving out of the spotlight anytime soon.

Deadline reports that Sarah Paulson is in early talks to join the already strong cast of Ocean’s Eight, an upcoming Ocean’s Eleven spin-off directed by Gary Ross (The Hunger Games). The movie has an all-female cast that includes Anne HathawaySandra BullockHelena Bonham CarterHelena Bonham Carter, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina.

At the moment, it’s unclear if Paulson’s role will be as one of the eight women who attempt to pull off the heist or perhaps as »

Sarah Paulson Being Eyed For Lead Role In Female Led Ocean’s Eight

25 August 2016 4:57 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The cast of Ocean’s Eight continues to get more and more impressive, with the latest addition being Emmy nominated actress Sarah Paulson. She’s been receiving some serious awards attention after playing Marcia Clark in The People Vs Oj Simpson, but has also delivered stellar performances in the likes of 12 Years A Slave and American Horror Story.

Deadline hasn’t shared any specifics on who the actress will be playing in Ocean’s Eight, but Paulson will presumably join the team which so far includes Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina.

Ocean’s Eleven director Steven Soderbergh is producing the movie which will be directed by The Hunger Games helmer Gary Ross. Plot details are also being kept under wraps, but it was recently revealed that it will actually be a continuation of the original trilogy rather than a female led »

Sarah Paulson in Talks to Join ‘Ocean’s Eight’

25 August 2016 3:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sarah Paulson is in negotiations to join “Ocean’s Eight,” the all-female spinoff of “Ocean’s Eleven.”

If the deal goes through, Paulson would join Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, and Awkwafina.

Gary Ross, whose credits include “The Hunger Games” and “Free State of Jones,” is directing. Bullock’s character will be the leader of a group of thieves and cons who try to pull off a major heist. Ross is directing from a script that he co-wrote with Olivia Milch.

“Ocean’s Eleven” director Steven Soderbergh and Ross will produce with executive producer Susan Ekins. Village Roadshow is co-producing and co-financing, as it did with the three previous “Ocean’s” movies starring George Clooney and Brad Pitt.

Greg Silverman and Jesse Ehrman are overseeing the film for the studio.

Production is scheduled to begin in October in New York.

From Beyoncé to Bowie: The Seven Best Music Videos Nominated at the 2016 VMAs

25 August 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

MTV’s annual Video Music Awards are set to air this Sunday night, and — as usual — the film world couldn’t possibly care less. And that’s understandable. After all, we have enough award shows of our own to worry about, and the VMAs are better known for Britney Spears tongue-kissing Madonna (what a scandal!) than they are for celebrating great art.

But perhaps we’re being a bit too hasty and dismissive. The interplay between movies and music videos has been thoroughly documented, but a glance at the list of recent Vma winners is enough to suggest that relationship is growing stronger, and might even demand a greater degree of critical attention. “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay” director Francis Lawrence may not be receiving many accolades for his film work, but the clip he created for Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” won MTV’s highest honor. “Detention” was widely »

Dwayne Johnson And Jennifer Lawrence Make All The Money

25 August 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In case you didn’t feel poor enough already, Forbes has gone and done their usual ranking of the highest paid actors in the world. At the top this year are two somewhat surprising names, with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jennifer Lawrence taking the top of the male and female lists respectively.

According to Forbes, Johnson tops out the list with a $64.5 million pay check, coming out several million ahead of the runner-up Jackie Chan, who only – ahem – brings in $61 million with films in China. Matt Damon came in third due to The Martian (he made $55 million this year), while Tom Cruise and Johnny Depp are just really slumming it with $53 and $48 million respectively.

Over with the ladies, Jennifer Lawrence made $46 million, given The Hunger Games finale, and the upcoming Passengers. Melissa McCarthy is right behind her with $33 million, while Scarlett Johansson lags behind on a scant $25 million. Are you feeling poor yet? »

Dwayne Johnson Named World’s Highest-Paid Actor

25 August 2016 8:31 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Dwayne Johnson is rocking Forbes‘ highest-paid actor list.

Johnson commanded $64.5 million between June 2015 and June 2016, more than doubling his earnings from the previous year and bumping Robert Downey Jr. from the top of the list, where he was perched for three consecutive years. A bulk of Johnson’s earnings come from his roles in the “Fast & Furious” franchise, the disaster movie “San Andreas,” and the HBO series “Ballers,” as well as upfront fees for “Fast 8” and the “Baywatch” movie

Johnson ranked No. 11 last year with around $31 million.

“Want to say two things about this,” Johnson tweeted about the news. “I started w/$7 bucks. If I can overcome, so can you. Waffle House on me!”

Box Office: ‘Don’t Breathe’ to Scare Off ‘Suicide Squad’

24 August 2016 1:12 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This is the way the summer movie ends. Not with a bang, but a whimper.

Facing little in the way of serious competition, Sony and Screen Gems’ “Don’t Breathe” should debut in first place this weekend, racking up $12 million across more than 3,000 screens. If those estimates hold, it will mark the lowest-grossing number one film since “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” topped charts for the fourth consecutive time on the weekend of Dec. 11th, a sign that blockbuster season is officially over despite the fact that summer hasn’t quite ended.

It is possible that “Suicide Squad,” the supervillain mash-up that vexed critics, but still drew crowds, could retain its crown. It will likely add $10 million to its haul, pushing the comic book adaptation ever closer to $300 million domestically. “Suicide Squad’s” stateside total currently stands at $264.6 million.

“Don’t Breathe” centers on a group of teenagers who »

Dead of Summer Season 1 Episode 9 Review: Home Sweet Home

24 August 2016 2:50 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

What the heck just happened?

I think we can all say after Dead of Summer Season 1 Episode 9 that we will never trust a pretty blonde girl ever again, right?

Watch Dead of Summer Season 1 Episode 9 Online

Turns out, Amy wasn't possessed after all. At least her behavior wasn't. She was the person who killed Cricket, Blotter, and Joel for Malphus, and now, Deb, too.

I guess I'll have to do this myself.

Malphus/Amy Permalink: I guess I'll have to do this myself. Added: August 24, 2016

That has to be one of the best plot twists in recent TV history. The girl that we all thought was innocent, that was unfairly being persecuted by Holyoke, was actually the one trying to summon Malphus. Who would've suspected her?

My disappointment stems from the fact that Amy was my favorite for all of the reasons that she decided to go down this dark path. »

Newswire: Once again, Jennifer Lawrence tops Forbes’ list of highest-paid actresses

23 August 2016 6:22 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

For the second year in a row, Jennifer Lawrence has found herself sitting on Forbes’ golden throne and wielding the magic scepter of box office glory, because she has just been named the highest-paid actress of 2016. Though she’s still the best, her overall take of $46 million is slightly down from last year’s $52 million—meaning she can only afford a slightly smaller number of rocket cars. According to the Forbes story, most of Lawrence’s money this year came from her getting a chunk of the profits from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 2 and a huge payday for her upcoming sci-fi love story Passengers.

Scarlett Johansson took second place last year, but this time she’s been busted by Melissa McCarthy, who reportedly got an “eight-figure payday” for Ghostbusters. She’s also the “biggest dollar gainer year over year,” leaping up $10 million from her ...

Jennifer Lawrence Ranked World’s Highest-Paid Actress for Second Year

23 August 2016 9:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jennifer Lawrence is still the girl on fire.

The Hunger Games” heroine has been named the world’s highest-paid actress by Forbes for the second year in a row.

Lawrence topped the annual ranking with $46 million — the pre-tax income was down $6 million (11.5%) from last year — thanks primarily to the final installment of her blockbuster franchise, “Mockingjay — Part 2,” which hauled $653.4 million worldwide, and a hefty advance for her role in the upcoming space adventure “Passengers” opposite Chris Pratt.

Lawrence, 26 (the youngest actor on the list), came in second place on the Forbes ranking in 2014.

Melissa McCarthy was runner-up on the list with $33 million — a $10 million spike (43.5%) from last year — making her the “biggest dollar gainer year over year.” “The Boss” star, who turns 46 this week, traded places with Scarlett Johansson, 31, who reeled in $25 million to land in third.

McCarthy reportedly scored an eight-figure paycheck for the female “Ghostbusters” reboot. Johansson, who »

Jennifer Lawrence tops Forbes list of highest-paid female actors with $46m

23 August 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Success of Hunger Games sequel puts Lawrence ahead of Melissa McCarthy, Scarlett Johansson and Chinese star Fan Bingbing, yet it’s half what her closest male actor received

Jennifer Lawrence has been named film’s best-paid female star for the second year in a row. The 26-year-old earned $46m (£34.9m) in the last year, according to Forbes. Her earnings, while decreasing 11.5% from 2015, were bumped up by a deal in which she took a cut of the $653.4m box office of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.

Lawrence, the youngest actor on the list, was followed by Melissa McCarthy, who – thanks to a reported eight-figure payday for Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot – had a 43.5% rise in her income. McCarthy, who was the third highest-paid female actor last year, earned $10m more than in 2016 than in 2015.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: 5 Other Franchises We’d Love to See on Stage

18 August 2016 5:36 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

If early reviews are anything to go by, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a resoundingly successful transition from page to stage. The new script, set 19 years after the final book in the original Harry Potter saga, brings back the magic of the series like never before.

Indeed, short of taking the excellent Harry Potter Tour (which actually lets you walk around inside the world of Pottermania), The Cursed Child is perhaps the most immersive Potter experience possible. Given the enormous success of the franchise prior to its release, it’s no surprise, then, that the play is enjoying such positive reviews early on.

Why can’t the same treatment be given to other favourites of fiction? Whether they be novels, movies or TV series, there are a whole host of other franchises which would flourish on the stage – here are five suggestions for any budding playwrights out there. »
