Jared Leto Will Star in Brett Ratner's Hugh Hefner Movie

  • Movies.com
Hugh Hefner, who passed away last week, had a huge influence on movies. There's the work he did in film preservation, helping to restore prints of The Big Sleep and Pandora's Box. There's the pop cultural presence his publication had in such movies as Apocalypse Now and of course The House Bunny. And he's been a figure worth portraying on screen, from James Franco's brief role in Lovelace to Cliff Roberton's performance in Star 80 and even Stan Lee's cameo in Iron Man.  Now Hefner is going to finally get a proper biopic of his own. Brett Ratner, who has been trying to get the project made for at least a decade, has announced Jared Leto will star as the iconic Playboy mogul. Quoted by...

Exclusive: From 'Undressed' to 'StartUp,' a Career Retrospective With Adam Brody

Exclusive: From 'Undressed' to 'StartUp,' a Career Retrospective With Adam Brody
For better or worse, Adam Brody will always be remembered as Seth Cohen from The O.C. The affable and awkward teen is easy to find inside the weathered and wiser 37-year-old Brody, but the San Diego native might never be able to shake his early-aughts pop culture iconography. Despite that infamous role, Brody has had a pretty consistent career over the last two decades, playing opposite Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in Mr. & Mrs. Smith, being directed by famed playwright Neil Labute and making guest appearances on beloved TV shows like House of Lies and The League. This month, he’s in the buddy comedy Big Bear, where he gets to sport a pretty mean mustache, and returns with the second season of StartUp on Crackle.

With two such diverse roles coming out in the same month and nostalgia for shows like Gilmore Girls and The O.C. at an all-time high, Brody sits down

Maggie Betts to Co-Write and Direct Political Drama for Focus Features

Maggie Betts: Variety/YouTube

Novitiate” writer-director Maggie Betts has booked her follow-up to the coming-of-age nun drama. Deadline reports that she’s sold an untitled original pitch to Focus Features. Little is known about the project except that it’s a contemporary political drama and Betts will direct. She’ll also pen the script along with Andy Bellin (“Lovelace”).

Maven PicturesCeline Rattray and Trudie Styler are set to produce, while Josh McLaughlin will oversee the movie for Focus.

Novitiate,” Betts’ first narrative feature, premiered at Sundance back in January. She won the Breakthrough Director award at the fest. Sony Pictures Classics snagged the rights to the film and is planning a release this fall. The 1960s-set drama follows Cathleen (Margaret Qualley, “The Leftovers”), a young woman who is raised by a non-religious single mother in rural Tennessee. A scholarship to a Catholic School leads Cathleen down a religious path where she pursues a life devoted to God, but on her journey to becoming a nun, she begins to question her faith. The nearly-all-female cast includes Melissa Leo (“The Fighter”), Dianna Agron (“Glee”), Julianne Nicholson (“Masters of Sex”), and Morgan Saylor (“White Girl,” “Homeland”).

“Focus has made a concerted effort to bolster its roster of female directors,” Deadline observes. “Counting the new deal with Betts, it has put six such films in the mix: the Niki Caro-directed ‘The Zookeeper’s Wife,’ the Julia Decournau-directed ‘Raw,’ the Sofia Coppola-directed ‘The Beguiled,’ the Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre-directed ‘Mustang’ and most recently the Massy Tadjedin-directed ‘Circle Of Treason.’” In 2016 Focus released women-directed titles such as Lorene Scafaria’s “The Meddler,” Rebecca Miller’s “Maggie’s Plan,” Meera Menon’s “Equity,” and Maren Ade’s “Toni Erdmann.”

Betts previously helmed the documentary “The Carrier,” a portrait of an HIV-positive and pregnant mother, and “Engram,” a short about an elderly man and woman who reconnect after many years.

Check out a video of Betts and the stars of “Novitiate” discussing what drew them to the project. They explain how rare — and appealing — it was to work on a female-led story.

Maggie Betts to Co-Write and Direct Political Drama for Focus Features was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Michael Bay’s ‘Drone Warrior’ Biopic Finds Writer in Andy Bellin

Screenwriter Andy Bellin will adapt the military action movie “Drone Warrior” for Michael Bay and Paramount.

Sharon Stone Will Appear in a Marvel Movie, and We Hope It’s ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’

In the past 10 years she’s had parts in Alpha Dog, Bobby, Lovelace, Fading Gigolo and that awful Basic Instinct sequel in 2006. Stone even starred in her […]

Twin Peaks Cast Revealed! (And You’ll Never Believe some of the names!)

Twin Peaks Cast Revealed! (And You’ll Never Believe some of the names!)
David Lynch today unveiled the full cast list for his upcoming Showtime Twin Peaks follow-up — and is it a doozy. Two hundred and seventeen actors are credited, with both newcomers and returning thespians. Previously only Kyle MacLachlan had been confirmed as FBI Agent Dale Cooper.

Will Agent Cooper use a smartphone?

Let’s check out some of the more interesting names on the list, shall we?

Michael Cera: The erstwhile Scott Pilgrim has been keeping busy since his breakout role as George Michael Bluth on Arrested Development, but he usually sticks with comedy (Year One, Superbad). It’ll be interesting to see him tackle something so dark.

Will this hair get frizzier in perpetually damp Twin Peaks?

Trent Reznor: The Oscar-winning composer and Nine Inch Nails wizard has only two credits under his belt (aside from three video shorts): a 2000 Swedish thriller called Recycled and the 1987 Michael J. Fox

The 'Die Hard' Fan Who Bought an Ad to Pitch a Sequel Landed a Movie Deal

  • Movies.com
Here's another fascinating Hollywood success story that could only happen once. Last month, screenwriter Eric D. Wilkinson spent his savings and took out a full-page ad in The Hollywood Reporter with an open letter and his pitch for the next Die Hard sequel. That bold move attracted enough attention that he now has a first-look deal with producer Avi Lerner (The Expendables) through third party Eclectic Pictures (Lovelace), according to The Guardian. Lerner may not be associated with the Die Hard franchise, but he did make the White House-set Die Hard wannabe Olympus Has Fallen. Surprisingly, though, it's not another one of that oft-copied mold that Wilkinson will now be working on. After Lerner reached out looking for more ideas, Wilkinson and his writing...

Sharon Stone Joins James Franco’s New Movie; Do You Get It? Could You Explain It to Us?
James Franco's new film The Disaster Artist already has a stacked cast — Zac Efron, Alison Brie, Peeta, Hannibal Buress, Kate Upton, Ari Graynor, successful reboot of James Franco, Dave Franco — which makes the latest bit of news from the film all the more confusing: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sharon Stone has joined the cast. [Pauses for a laugh.] Wait, do you get it? Yeah, we totally get it. Stone, known for her role in the Basic Instinct movies, will play a Hollywood agent across from Franco's Tommy Wiseau, the man who created the infamously terrible film, The Room. The two will also deliver the Lovelace reunion you never knew you wanted. Wait, is that the joke? Is this all secretly a Lovelace promo? Well played, James Franco. Well played.

2016 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Jason Lew’s The Free World

Best known as the writer for the Gus Van Sant directed Restless back in 2011 and he also moonlights as an actor, Jason Lew originally mounted this directorial debut with major starlets in Cillian Murphy and Bryce Dallas Howard but it ended up being American indie players Boyd Holbrook and Elizabeth Moss who would transition into the roles of Mo and Doris. A film of broken spirits and strays (this includes a pooch) with criminal backgrounds, production on The Free World began this past July in New Orleans.

Gist: Mo (Holbrook) has finished serving his time for a brutal crime he did not commit—the murder of two young girls. In prison, his fellow inmates named him “The Cyclops” for his violent behaviour he called himself Mohamed, in homage to the prophet. Not entirely prepared for his new freedom and under constant suspicion by the small town community, he finds solace
