Pregnant Liv Tyler is all smiles and rocking that maternity style at Paris Fashion Week! The 37-year-old star of the Lord of the Rings movies and the HBO series The Leftovers glowed and showcased her baby bump in a short sleeve, scoop neck, over-the-knee navy and periwinkle blue floral dress with white accents and a frilly skirt as she attended the Miu Miu Spring / Summer 2015 Womenswear show in the French capital on Wednesday.

At the Miu Miu runway show, Liv sat with Hailee Steinfeld of True Grit and Ender's »
Reports suggest that Telluride, Colorado beat out other locations such as Utah and Wyoming after their Economic Development Commision approved a $5 million incentive which will be offered to the film company. The movie is rumoured to be filming on a 900 acre ranch about ten miles west of the town, depending on permit approvals. This has the potential to be the area’s biggest film production since True Grit was filmed there in the late 1960s.
Tarentino’s latest foray into the world of Westerns is set for release in 2015 and if his previous films are anything to go by it’s going to be worth a watch.

Colorado has approved a $5 million incentive package to lure production of the upcoming Quentin Tarantino film The Hateful Eight. The state Economic Development Commission approved the package Friday. The Denver Post reports that Colorado's incentives beat out those of Utah and Wyoming. The film could be filmed on a 900-acre ranch west of the ski town of Telluride, depending on local permit approval. Budgeted at $44 million, the film would be the most significant production in Colorado since 1969's True Grit. That classic was filmed near three rural western Colorado cities. The Hateful Eight is set in the early 1870s

Update: Winning out over the western landscapes of Utah and Wyoming, the state of Colorado has secured the deal to welcome Quentin Tarantino's Hateful Eight. They tempted the production with a $5m incentive package that will, permits approving, see Tarantino filming on a 900-acre ranch near Telluride. Fittingly, it's the biggest film to hit the state since True Grit in 1969.There's news just in that Quentin Tarantino’s on-again, off-again Western, The Hateful Eight, will commence shooting in January – all in glorious 65mm. Harvey Weinstein, renewing his long acquaintance with the writer/director, is promising to pull out all the stops for the post-Civil War Western and afford it “the widest 70mm release for over 20 years”. Eat your pickled heart out, The Master.Said Harvey and Bob Weinstein in a statement, “We are incredibly excited to begin production on The Hateful Eight, as we know this picture will be as innovative, »
It’s funny to think that just a few months ago, the idea of Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight seeing the light of day was nothing more than a pipe dream. After the film’s script leaked earlier this year, Tarantino stopped production on the film, but quickly calmed down and set the wheels in motion once more. Now, it appears that things are moving ahead even faster than expected, as we’ve just learned that cameras will begin shooting a month earlier than previously reported.
The Denver Post is reporting that The Hateful Eight will film exclusively in Colorado thanks to a $5 million incentive package. This makes Tarantino’s new western the highest-profile pic to shoot in the region since 1969′s True Grit. Now that a location is in place, Tarantino will reportedly begin prep work and start shooting on December 8th at the Schmid Ranch in southwestern Colorado outside of Telluride. »

The state of Colorado is rubbing its hands at the somewhat bloody prospect of Quentin Tarantino coming to town. The director will park his wagon and convert a ranch to shoot his much-anticipated nineteenth century slugfest The Hateful Eight, commencing December 8th. Late 2014 was mooted as the start date, now this has been confirmed by The Denver Post. A frozen Wyoming is the scenario, that sees a stagecoach journey permanently halted by a remorseless blizzard. The carriage’s mismatched occupants – including a female convict and a pair of bounty hunters locked in a game of one-upmanship – must then presumably get locked in a fight for survival. As regular Tarantino viewers will know preservation of the species is not high on his list of priorities. Audiences got a taste of the action during a live reading earlier this year.
Wyoming itself must be fuming that Colorado got the jump on it, »

There have been multiple reports about when director Quentin Tarantino will start shooting his revenge Western The Hateful Eight, including a May report that revealed shooting will begin this November in Wyoming, and a story from earlier this month that indicated production will start in January. Today, The Denver Post reports that principal photography will begin on December 8 in southwestern Colorado.
The state of Colorado has put together a $5 million incentive for Quentin Tarantino to bring his project to the state, beating out neighboring states Utah and Wyoming. Colorado's Economic Development Commission approved the incentive package earlier this morning, with state film commissioner David Zuckerman confirming that The Hateful Eight will be shot entirely in Colorado. Here's what he had to say in a statement.
"The whole movie's going to be shot here, exteriors and interiors. They're going to build it on a ranch."
Out of the film's $44 million budget, »
Colorado film commissioner Donald Zuckerman tells The Denver Post: "The whole movie's going to be shot here, exteriors and interiors. They're going to build it on a ranch."
Set in a blizzard-engulfed Wyoming after the Civil War, the story follows a group of dangerous people trapped in a saloon after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route.
The project sports a $44 million budget and was granted a $5 million incentive package by the state. It's also the biggest production to film in Colorado since the original "True Grit" in 1969.
Pre-production is already underway ahead of filming beginning on December 8th. The project will take a break over the holiday, then resume production in 2015. »

Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage is set to star in an upcoming crime thriller called The Thicket. The movie is based on a book by Joe Lansdale, and according to the press release, the book is apparently one of the "best American crime novels to emerge in recent years." If you're not familiar with the book, it has been compared to other stories such as Stand By Me and True Grit. Here's a breakdown of the story:
Set in tough, turbulent and feral East Texas in the early 20th century, this dark thriller follows the story of Jack, an innocent young man, who goes on an epic quest to rescue his sister after she has been kidnapped by a violent killer, Cut Throat Bill, and his gang. Jack enlists the help of a crafty bounty hunter named Shorty (Dinklage), a grave-digging alcoholic son of an ex-slave, and a street-smart prostitute. »

A very simplistic Dystopia for Dummies — with a bit of Terrence Malick for Dummies thrown in — and inoffensive enough until it devolves into all kinds of stupid. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m a big fan of science fiction

It would be easy to let The Giver slide if its only problem were that it bears too close a resemblance to some of the other examples of young adult science fiction that have gotten recent transfers to the big screen. Such as (and most uncomfortably) Divergent, with which it shares a setting of a seeming utopia that shoehorns its happily conformist citizens into narrow roles until one oddball comes along who chaffs at the system. After all, the Lois Lowry novel this is based on was published almost 20 years before Divergent, »

In the newly created role, he will oversee Skydance’s finance, accounting and administrative operations. He’ll also support the analysis and execution of new initiatives.

Wasserman spent a decade at DreamWorks in a variety of senior posts. »

Remakes, reboots and reimaginings; in recent years, ‘re’ has certainly become Hollywood’s go-to prefix. In an age where nearly every high-profile movie that hits theaters is based on an existing property, original projects are continually being overlooked in favor of those with built-in appeal and name recognition. There are currently dozens of established properties in development that are being rehashed and updated for the current generation of audiences, with the trend showing no signs of slowing down.
With that being said, there have been plenty of great remakes over the years. Classic movies like The Fly, Scarface, The Thing and Heat were all based on existing movies, while Ocean’s Eleven, Cape Fear and True Grit all delivered updates that were superior to the originals. However, on the other side of the coin are the dozens of lazy and uninspired remakes that seem to think a recognizable »

Size definitely mattered for the teenage stars of "Ender's Game" ... who had a mine's-bigger-than-yours attitude on the set ... at least as far as their dressing room trailers were concerned. Both Asa Butterfield and Hailee Steinfeld made sure they didn't get stuck with a dinky or crappy trailer ... by including specific language in their minor's contracts. Studios are required to file these with the court for all actors under 18. According to the legal docs obtained by »

Greenstein will assume the role previously held by Jeff Blake, who was forced out in late July, and oversee the day-to-day management. He will report to Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment and chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group.
Friday’s announcement came three days after Variety reported that Greenstein, the former Paramount Pictures chief marketing officer, was in final negotiations with Sony to succeed Blake.
Greenstein, who has been at Paramount since 2005 and previously served as co-president of marketing and executive vice president of creative advertising, had already informed his bosses at the Viacom Inc.-owned studio that he would not be renewing his contract when it expires at the end of this year.
Before joining Paramount, he served as head of marketing for Dimension Films.

Update: That was quick. Sony just sent the release, which runs below the brief update.
Exclusive: I reported back on July 24 that Josh Greenstein was top choice by Sony Pictures to become head of worldwide marketing and distribution, and then again when Paramount Pictures announced Greenstein was leaving his chief marketing officer job as the studio promoted Megan Colligan to President, Worldwide Distribution and Marketing, reporting to vice-chairman Rob Moore.

He replaces Jeff Blake, who exited after launching Sony’s summer box office. Stay tuned.
