Mark Ruffalo Tweets SAG Awards Acceptance Speech from Bed in London

26 January 2015 9:13 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Mark Ruffalo couldn’t make it to Sunday night’s SAG Awards ceremony to accept in person his prize for outstanding male actor in a TV movie or miniseries, but thanks to Twitter, he was able to share a makeshift acceptance speech from his bed in London. He’s currently across the pond filming “Now You See Me: The Second Act.”

Ruffalo — who beat out Billy Bob Thornton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Adrien Brody and Richard Jenkins in the category — wrote that his wife and children woke him up with the news four hours before he had to be back on set.

Ha ha ha! Sunny and my kids just woke me up to tell me I won a SAG award. Have to be at work in 4 hours. Thank you! @SAGawards

25 January 2015 6:47 PM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Mark Ruffalo missed the SAG Awards on Sunday when he won the Actor for outstanding performance in a television movie or miniseries for The Normal Heart, but he didn't miss his chance to acknowledge his win or thank his peers. Ruffalo took to Twitter moments after the win and got to chime in on his victory. First, he tweeted a cute message about how his wife and kids woke him up to tell him the big news, mentioning that he had to be at work in four hours, implying that's the reason he missed the show: Ha ha ha! Sunny and my kids just woke me up to tell me I won a SAG award. Have to be at work in 4 hours. Thank you! @SAGawards — Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) January 26, 2015 Then, he took the opportunity to thank The Normal Heart director Ryan Murphy.

Mark Ruffalo Asleep When He Won 2015 SAG Award, Gives Speech on Twitter

25 January 2015 1:25 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Mark Ruffalo was nominated for two Screen Actors Guild Awards, but not only did he skip the Sunday, January 25 show, he apparently slept through it. About halfway through the show, Mark won the SAG Award for "Performance By a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries" for his role in "The Normal Heart." They had to do the classic "Mark Ruffalo couldn't be here ... we accept the award on his behalf."

However, Mark did accept the award shortly after he won - via Twitter. Here's his six-part (so far) speech:

Ha ha ha! Sunny and my kids just woke me up to tell me I won a SAG award. Have to be at work in 4 hours. Thank you! @SAGawards

Thank you @ryanmurphy24 for giving me the incredible part! Thank you Larry Kramer teaching is all a little more about love.

‘Birdman’ Soars As PGA Sets A New Course For Wide Open Best Picture Oscar Race

25 January 2015 3:10 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

During the cocktail reception before Saturday night’s Producers Guild Awards began I ran into Oscar-nominated Screenwriter (and Director) Dan Gilroy and wife Rene Russo, there supporting one of the ten PGA Darryl F. Zanuck Best Picture nominees, Nightcrawler. Russo, admittedly not a staple at this type of awards-season banquet, asked me if they were going to serve food at this event. “Yes,” I replied, “it’s a dinner.” “So what do you think will win, Boyhood or Birdman?” she wondered. That was an interesting and somewhat surprising way to distill what has been thought to be a wide open race to Oscar until Boyhood basically cleaned up on the critics circuit, capping its run with Golden Globe and  Critics Choice Movie Award wins, while Birdman scored for Michael Keaton but actually lost to Fox Searchlight stablemate The Grand Budapest Hotel in both respective comedy categories. But now with the »

Steven Knight Says 'World War Z' Sequel is Starting with Clean Slate

20 January 2015 8:59 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Early last summer, we learned that Locke director and writer Steven Knight was hired to script a sequel to the intense zombie epidemic thriller World War Z. But since then, we haven't heard anything new on the project. But Thompson on Hollywood recently sat down with the writer, who's still at the treatment stage of writing, and the conversation turned to the progress on the gestating sequel which Brad Pitt will produce again through his Plan B production banner. However, as we've suspected, it doesn't sound like he'll be starring as Knight says, "It’s not quite like the other, we're starting with a clean slate." Read on! Unfortunately, Knight didn't elaborate on what that meant, nor was he asked to go into more detail. But it sounds like the sequel will be more of an anthology companion to World War Z, perhaps following someone else in pursuit of a »

World War Z sequel 'a clean slate', says screenwriter Steven Knight

20 January 2015 7:18 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

World War Z sequel screenwriter Steven Knight has shared an update for the forthcoming blockbuster.

Knight, creator of Peaky Blinders and writer-director of Tom Hardy's Locke, revealed that Paramount's planned follow-up could depart significantly from its predecessor.

Discussing his decision to take on the project, Knight told Indiewire: "I thought, 'Why not? What fun.' It's not quite like the other, we're starting with a clean slate. When they've signed off we're on."

The World War Z sequel will shoot in October for release in 2016.

The Impossible's Ja Bayona will direct the film with Brad Pitt producing through his Plan B company. It is unclear if Brad Pitt will reprise his role as Un investigator Gerry Lane.

World War Z earned more than $540 million at the worldwide box office from a budget of $190 million. Watch the trailer for the film below: »

Controversy From SAG To The Academy As Issue Turns To Diversity: Is It Fair? – Oscar Watch

18 January 2015 1:21 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

One week from today, the #allwhite SAG movie awards will take place at the Shrine. For the film categories that will appear on the Jan. 25 telecast, the actors union managed to nominate not a single black actor in any of its four film acting categories. SAG also didn’t nominate any black performers among the 42 additional actors named as part of its Outstanding Performance By A Cast In A Motion Picture (nominees are Birdman, Boyhood, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Imitation Game and The Theory Of Everything).

So that’s a total of 62 performances nominated, all of them white, with the closest thing to any level of diversity being Grand Budapest Hotel co-star and Cast nominee Tony Revolori, a Southern Californian of Guatemalan descent.

Yet did SAG, a union run by white actor Ken Howard, get anywhere near the level of flak and criticism and outrage the Academy of Motion »

Writer-Director Steve Knight Moves from Indie 'Locke' to TV Hit 'Peaky Blinders' and the Sequel to 'World War Z'

17 January 2015 6:38 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Knight's also the creator of Netflix Brit import "Peaky Blinders," a seedily atmospheric turn-of-the-century look at gangster life. (Our review here.) Charismatic tar Cillian Murphy used to be able to walk around in New York unrecognized but can't do it anymore. One obsessed fan is Snoop Dog, who Knight recently took out in London. "He told me how he related to his experience with gang culture," he says. "It's been one of those things that's gone off like a rocket. He says it's going down so well with black people that they are getting into the way of dressing. The same thing happened here on the East End, people dressed like Peaky, wearing caps." Knight wrote Bleecker Street Media's upcoming Ed Zwick chess thriller "Pawn Sacrifice," starring Tobey Maguire as Bobby Fischer and Liev Schreiber as Boris Spassky, which played well at Toronto. He's writing the treatment for the sequel »

16 January 2015 6:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After news broke earlier in the week that the heavyweight trifecta of Christian Bale, Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling were teaming for new drama The Big Short, the ensemble has swelled even more with news from The Hollywood Reporter that newly-crowned Academy Award nominee Steve Carell (Foxcatcher) is in talks to join them.

The film, which is a adaptation of Michael Lewis’ (Moneyball) book, would see Carell play “Steve Eisman, a money manager who shorted subprime mortgages” in a movie that “chronicles multiple storylines and juggles various characters against the backdrop of the housing and credit bubbles of the 2000s that led to the 2007-08 global financial crisis.”

Anchorman and Step Brothers director Adam McKay is writing and directing the film, with Pitt’s production company Plan B, producing the film. No filming schedule has yet been confirmed, but early word suggests a 2016 release.

It’s Triple The Testosterone As Pitt, Gosling And Bale Topline ‘The Big Short’

13 January 2015 11:30 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

America’s financial meltdown of the late Noughties is set to receive the Hollywood treatment again, this time with a stellar ensemble cast under the banner of Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B. Not only will Pitt be onscreen but he’ll share that poor expanse of white with Ryan Gosling and Christian Bale – enough acting intensity to burn a hole through a cinema wall.

The Big Short is an adaptation of The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine by Michael Lewis. That took a blistering look at the movers and shakers whose catastrophic irresponsibility led to the housing and credit bubble that went pop in 2007. Roles are yet to be confirmed but more big names are expected to join the rogues gallery in due course.

Tinseltown covered similar ground in 2010’s The Company Men, though that was criticized in some quarters for being somewhat on the mild side. »
