12 July 2016 9:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Singer-songstress Zendaya is circling a lead role in The Greatest Showman with Hugh Jackman, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Word of Zendaya’s potential casting comes only one week after My Week with Marilyn alum Michelle Williams closed a deal to star, rounding out a cast that currently comprises both Jackman and Zac Efron.

Chronicling the legendary story of one P.T. Barnum, founder of the modern circus who made a name for himself across Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, The Greatest Showman has already appointed director Michael Gracey at the helm, working from a script penned by esteemed screenwriter Michael Arndt, best known for his work on Toy Story 3.

Hugh Jackman, who has remained attached to the project for years at this point, is set to lead the charge as Barnum, while THR notes that Disney starlet Zendaya is in contention for the role of a trapeze artist. »

Why Kenneth Branagh Loves Mysteries, from ‘Wallander’ to ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ (Emmy Watch)

26 June 2016 10:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Kenneth Branagh fell into his love affair with the “Wallander” mysteries by Swedish author Henning Mankell (1948 – 2015) for “the sheer pleasure of the reading,” he told me over the phone. “It was novel by novel. I’m not usually a kind of completist in this regard, but each novel did send me to the next one, and I did read them in order, and I did find myself drawn in, hypnotically. I didn’t feel I’d met anyone quite like this before or this landscape.”

The novels are set in Sweden, in and around the town of Ystad, 35 miles south-east of the city of Malmö, in the southern province of Skåne. And that’s where the PBS Mystery series (four seasons, from 2009 through 2016) is also filmed. “It’s vast and flat,” said Branagh. “It has a strong regional dialect. It’s a curious, forgotten, unfashionable pocket of land. Over 60 percent »

Suicide Squad’s Margot Robbie Linked To Goodbye Christopher Robin With Domhnall Gleeson

19 May 2016 7:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been a busy week for Margot Robbie. Not only has the Suicide Squad actress hatched a Harley Quinn spinoff movie, replete with a handful of DC heroines such as Batgirl, Poison Ivy, Birds of Prey, but Variety brings word that Robbie is also in line to join Domhnall Gleeson in Goodbye Christopher Robin.

Simon Curtis (My Week With Marilyn) is the director behind the pic, telling the true-life story of A.A. Milne, the creator responsible for Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet and scores of fond childhood memories. Setting up shop at Fox Searchlight, it’s understood Robbie is circling the role of Milne’s wife, Dorothy de Sélincourt.

At the heart of Goodbye Christopher Robin, though, is the troubled relationship between Milne and his son, Robin. Indeed, during the early 1900s, A.A. Milne served in The Great War, and used his downtime on the frontline to nurture his flair for writing. »

Golden Globes Sharpen Rules For Comedy Category

19 April 2016 10:27 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As far awards season goes, the Golden Globes Awards are best understood as a high school prom, compared to the Academy Awards' being more like a formal dinner at the White House. The Golden Globes aren't taken very seriously, but it's a fun party, with the nominees often seem positioned more to guarantee celebrity attendance than any consideration based on merit. The Musical Or Comedy category at the Globes has been particular source of random nominees, with movies like "Alice In Wonderland," "My Week With Marilyn," "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind," and "Her" managing to qualify over the years. But perhaps the most egregious nomination in the category in recent memory was at this year's ceremony for Ridley Scott's "The Martian," which wound up winning over films like "Spy" and "Trainwreck." Well, it seems even the Golden Globes have their limits. Read More: 'The Revenant' Wins Big At »
