Columbus Circle (2012)
Selma Blair wants us to get lost. The “Kath & Kim” alumna and her production company, Sainted Productions, have snagged the rights to Sarah Beth Durst’s 2013 novel “The Lost,” Variety reports.
The book follows Lauren, a woman who finds herself trapped in a desolate town on the edge of a desert that’s “filled with things abandoned, broken, and thrown away,” according to its Amazon synopsis. When Lauren “tries to escape, impassible dust storms and something unexplainable lead her back to Lost again and again. The residents she meets there tell her she’s going to have to figure out just what she’s missing — and what she’s running from — before she can leave. So now Lauren’s on a new search for a purpose and a destiny. And maybe, just maybe, she’ll be found.”
Now seeking a writer to pen the script, Blair is “undecided” about whether or not she’ll topline the project, which may take the form of a film or a TV series.
Blair co-stars in TV Land’s upcoming “Heathers” reboot, which is expected to debut early next year. Her credits include “The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” the “Hellboy” franchise, and “Legally Blonde.”

The 2017 edition of Tribeca Film Festival came to a close on Saturday with an epic affair, which was kicked off with one of the greatest opening lines spoken in any American film ever: “I believe in America.”
The historic event that wrapped up the festival’s massively-scaled and star-studded 16th year was the back-to-back screenings of The Godfather and The Godfather Part II, followed by a panel discussion moderated by filmmaker Taylor Hackford. After a 7+- hour screening marathon with one intermission, writer-director Francis Ford Coppola took the stage, joined by his cast-members Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, James Caan, Robert Duvall and Talia Shire.

Tens of thousands of people were expected to participate in planned “Not My President’s Day” marches against President Donald Trump on Monday. The official Not My President’s Day protests took place in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago but other rallies of the same name were also reportedly held in Washington D.C., Missouri and Denver.
Organizers told am New York on Monday that some 13,000 people gathered outside Trump International Hotel at Manhattan’s Columbus Circle to protest the president.
This was Thursday night last week, at a rally in Manhattan’s Columbus Circle outside of a Trump hotel. I went, as I often do, to put my body on the line for something in which I believe. In this case, I wanted to stand with my fellow New Yorkers to express my horror about the Inauguration taking place the next day.
I stood there for about an hour. A woman sang, beautifully. Rosie Perez welcomed us. Alec Baldwin did his Trump impression. Steve Buscemi talked. New York City mayor Bill deBlasio spoke, followed by the mayor of Minneapolis. Michael Moore was very funny, but at this point, my back started to hurt, and I decided that I had been seen enough to make my statement.
Andy Warhol famously said that, in the future, everyone would be famous for 15 minutes. He did not explain why we should care.
The protest totaled from 20,000 to 25,000 people according to staff and stretched down six blocks of Central Park West. Organized by Fisher Stevens, Mark Ruffalo and Michael Moore, the event featured prominent speakers protesting the incoming Trump administration while calling for opposers to unite and continue to protest through Trump’s presidency.
After an opening speech by Rosie Perez, Oscar winner Robert De Niro came onstage to introduce New York City mayor Bill de Blasio. “I’m very happy
It’s been 13 years since “Bad Santa” bowed and now it’s back with even more raunchy jokes and loud-mouthed humor from its original faces – apart from the late Bernie Mac. Thornton reprises his role as Willie, who along with Kelly (who plays Thurman Merman) and Cox (who portrays Marcus), gets into even more holiday shenanigans.
This time around, they’re joined by big names including Kathy Bates, who plays Thornton’s mother, and Christina Hendricks, who is Thornton’s love interest.
Bates, however, is not your typical mom.
“She doesn’t take crap from anybody. She drinks hard, smokes hard, she’s a tough lady,
Levitt plays Edward Snowden in the political drama surrounding the whisteblower’s untold story of how he came to reveal illegal surveillance activities performed by the National Security Agency.
“First off, I was just flattered. But I really had a lot of learning to do. My personal opinion is what he did was a really positive thing for the country,” added Gordon-Levitt.
The Oliver Stone-directed film also stars Shailene Woodley, Zachary Quinto, Scott Eastwood, Lakeith Stanfield, and Ben Schnetzer.
Stone, who visited Russia nine times and consulted with the real-life Snowden on the project, told Variety that this film was created to shed light on the “human being” who is often called either a “traitor” or “hero.”
