23 July 2014 9:04 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The hit Broadway production of Of Mice and Men is galloping to a close this Sunday.

Shapiro-directed revival.

Of Mice and Men—which also stars Gossip Girl alum Leighton Meester, True Blood alum Jim Parrack, and stage veteran Jim Norton—will be the first Broadway show filmed by the company. Screening dates will be announced later this year.

Kid’s Corner: Top 10 Steven Spielberg-Directed Child-Centric Films

8 July 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg has taken movie audiences on extravagant adventures of a lifetime during his lengthy course behind the camera when impacting the film industry with his captivating on-screen imagination. Spielberg has shown an amazing range of vision and scope when tackling various movie genres that tap in the collective consciousness of moviegoers. Science fiction, social issue dramas, action and adventure, period pieces, family-oriented fantasies, comedies, war movies–you name it and Spielberg has done it on the big screen in his illustrious film career in directing, producing, writing and promoting.

Although Spielberg has done his share of adult-oriented films that cater to the sophisticated masses he is primarily known for his whimsical kid-friendly fare or at least releases that feature children in some of his escapist gems that may not necessarily be considered kiddie-coated.

Release dates for Spielberg's new films confirmed

16 June 2014 10:42 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Bfg and Steven Spielberg's thus far untitled Cold War spy thriller now have release dates...

News

Ever since he directed Jurassic Park and Schindler's List back to back, Steven Spielberg has had periods where he's directed films in clumps. Most notably, he did The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Amistad and Saving Private Ryan pretty much back to back, pocketing an Oscar for the last of those three.

A few years later, he then went from A.I. to Minority Report to Catch Me If You Can, and in 2005 from War Of The Worlds to Munich. More recently, he shot War Horse and Lincoln without too much of a gap between them.

Now? He's set up a new pair of projects, and he's diving straight in, one after the other. The first is his thus-far untitled Cold War thriller, which is set to reunite him with Tom Hanks. The Coen brothers have penned the screenplay. »

Steven Spielberg's Untitled Cold War Thriller & 'The B.F.G.' Find Release Dates

16 June 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Having been so prolific for so long, Steven Spielberg's career tends to go in fits and starts these days. The director has spent much of his career making a film every year (and sometimes even two, with a gap of more than a couple of years being quite rare, but it took him three years to follow up "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull" back in 2008, after a number of other projects fell through. Still, a flurry of activity followed, with "The Adventures Of Tintin," "War Horse" and "Lincoln" all hitting theaters within a year, but another three year gap has followed the acclaimed latter film, as the great director has been cautious about picking his next project. But the Bearded One has made his decision, as we've known for a little while, and now we know when we'll be seeing the two new films, and »

Hey Good Lookin’: Tom Hiddleston to Play Hank Williams in ‘I Saw The Light’

13 June 2014 9:27 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The tale of country legend Hank Williams is a cruel and heart wrenching little one. Thrust into stardom at age 14, Hank took Montgomery, Alabama by storm. But like all good teen idols, Hank took up drinking quickly, married his manager (sounds scandalous but they were actually the same age), released a bevy of hits, joined up with the Grand Ole Opry, sank deeper and deeper into the throes of alcoholism, and then added crippling prescription painkiller addiction on top of that when he started suffering from back problems. Williams shined bright with talent, known for songs like “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” “Hey Good Lookin’” and “I Saw The Light,” But any further success was cut short when Williams died at the age of 29 from drug and alcohol fueled heart failure. While hearing I Saw The Light probably now best conjures up images of Chapman beating the shit out of Pennsatucky in »

While most eyes (and news crews) were focused on Robert Pattinson in Westwood for Thursday night's L.A. premiere of “The Rover,” co-star Guy Pearce and director David Michod weren't the only Aussies in film celebrating. Over at the Sls, Emile Hirsch turned up at the Heath Ledger Scholarship Dinner to reminisce about his “Lords of Dogtown” co-star. “He wasn't a know-it-all. He would sometimes come to me and be very insecure,” Hirsch said, speaking earnestly and without notes. “Am I a clown in the movie?

Should Brit Star Tom Hiddleston Take on Country Icon Hank Williams?

12 June 2014 5:34 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As high as I am on Tom Hiddleston, the idea of him playing all-American country music icon Hank Williams gives me pause. Somehow this role should go to an American actor. This casting feels like a foreign sales decision. Hiddleston, who is bankable thanks to playing Loki in two Thor films and "The Avengers," is set to play Williams in writer-director Marc Abraham's "I Saw the Light," based on Colin Escott’s biography.  Via Sony Atv, the biopic has secured rights to the Williams music catalogue including such hits as “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” “Hey Good Lookin’” and “Your Cheatin’ Heart.” Not that Hiddleston isn't a gifted actor and singer. After supporting roles in Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" and Steven Spielberg's "War Horse," Hiddleston starred opposite Rachel Weisz in Terence Davies' drama "Deep Blue Sea," in the TV series "The Hollow Crown, »

Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hardy Top Marvel’s List of Dr. Strange Actors

6 June 2014 8:08 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 

Marvel is moving along with their Phase Three plans, including the Dr. Strange film. Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hardy are at the top of Marvel’s list of people who should play the Master of the Mystic Arts, Dr. Stephen Strange.

 

 

According to Deadline, Marvel Entertainment has composed a wish-list of big-name actors who they would like to see in the title role of their planned Dr. Strange movie. Benedict Cumberbatch is high on the list, as is Tom Hardy.

 

Benedict Cumberbatch came on the scene with a splash due to his highly acclaimed portrayal of Sherlock Holmes on the BBC series Sherlock. He has also dived into sci-fi lore by playing that notorious bad guy Kahn Singh in Star Trek: Into Darkness, and into fantasy realms with voice-over roles in the Hobbit trilogy. He’s appeared in critically praised films such as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and War Horse. »

Now: In the Wings on a World Stage Review

6 June 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The line between theatre and cinema is becoming increasingly blurred, as while triumphant productions such as War Horse and Jersey Boys make their way to the big screen, classic feature films such as The Lion King, and more recently Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, are being reimagined on stage. There have been some plays that have even been screened in cinemas of late – and it’s a notion now explored in Jeremy Whelehan’s documentary Now: In the Wings on a World Stage, as the two mediums become almost interchangeable.

In what is effectively Kevin Spacey and Sam Mendes’ first screen collaboration since American Beauty, Whelehan follows the pair, along with the fellow members of the Bridge Project Company, as they tour the world with their stage production of Richard III. While fascinating to see such talented actors – not to mention the indelible, diligent crew – at the top of their game and honing their craft, »
