Why ‘Death Note’ Is Guilty of Whitewashing, and What We Can Do to Prevent More Movies Like It

Why ‘Death Note’ Is Guilty of Whitewashing, and What We Can Do to Prevent More Movies Like It
So Netflix’s “Death Note” is finally available to stream around the world, and everyone is completely thrilled about it with no reservations whatsoever, the end.

Just kidding. While the release of Adam Wingard’s controversial manga adaptation has been overshadowed by everything from Hurricane Harvey to “Game of Thrones” and even a different story of Hollywood white-washing (albeit one with a happy ending, thanks to actor Ed Skrein agreeing to remove himself from the “Hellboy” remake), the movie has been kicking up a fuss ever since it was first announced that none of its major characters would be played by actors of Asian descent. The case may not be quite as cut-and-dry as it was with this year’s ill-conceived “Ghost in the Shell” remake, but the discussion around it may be even more valuable for that.

Below, IndieWire critics David Ehrlich and Hanh Nguyen dig into the issue.

July. It's (Almost) a Wrap

We started the month off wishing Olivia de Havilland a happy centennial. She's now our oldest living Oscar winner! Then we completed our our "halfway mark" year in review which is like a warm up for the Film Bitch Awards at years end. We'll close the month tomorrow with the Supporting Actress Smackdown of 1977. Otherwise July has been the usual array of randomness. We like a good variety at The Film Experience as long as that variety includes lots of actressing and films from multiple genres and eras.

But about this era for a moment: the summer blockbusters have been a little rough this summer but find a smaller release to see this weekend: Miss Sharon Jones opened yesterday; do Not miss Viggo Mortensen in Captain Fantastic which added over 400 theaters yesterday (it's now probably somewhere near you) and lives up to its title; and you might also want an opinion on the new Woody,

Nikki Finke's Hollywood Dementia Goes Live

Nikki Finke's Hollywood Dementia Goes Live
Mort co-wrote with director Bill Condon the HBO pilot for 'Tilda,' with Diane Keaton playing a reclusive blogger inspired by Finke, that never went to series. (I wish HBO could release that script for posting, I loved it.) Oddly enough, another writer posting fiction on Hollywood Dementia for $1 a pop is power attorney/novelist Bert Field, who was once hired by The Wrap's Sharon Waxman to fire off a legal response to attacking Finke at the height of their dueling diva phase. (I ordered the Field story "forever" via Amazon payments--other options include PayPal or credit card.)  Read More: Why Nikki Finke is Launching Her New Site Nikkifinke.com now redirects to Hollywood Dementia. Deadline's Mike Fleming posts an excerpt of Finke's hardboiled Hollywood fiction, "Dying on a Bed of Nails." Let's just say it's not escapist fare. She likes exposing the belly of the beast. Whether Finke's

Ja from Mnpp here, back from the holidays and welcoming everybody to the year 2015 with a brand new round of "Beauty vs Beast." This week we're tackling one of our most favorite actresses and her maybe probably most definitely most iconic role - yup it's Diane Keaton's 69th birthday today and so la-di-da la-la y'all...

So all of you left-wing Communist Jewish homosexual pornographers have got one week to make your voice heard - vote and then tell us in the comments which neurotic you wanna chase lobsters with. And happy birthday, Diane Keaton!

Previously I wasn't here last week and so Nathaniel took over and man, did he come up with a doozy - in The Battle of the Tildas, the winner was... Tilda! Snowpiercer Tilda, to be specific - the Minister Mason made like a good shoe and trounced over Wes Anderson's old-lady-drag competition.

Watch: Trailer For 'Deadline: The Nikki Finke Story' Starring Jean Smart & Christina Applegate

While we'll mourn that HBO's Nikki Finke-inspired "Tilda"—set to star Diane Keaton, Ellen Page and Wes Bentley, with the pilot episode directed by Bill Condon—never got to series, perhaps this is the next best thing. And with this past November filled with insider baseball-esque blog posts about Finke's exit from Deadline, what Jay Penske's next move will be and more, it's definitely time to laugh. So hats off to Funny Or Die, who have dropped a trailer for "Deadline: The Movie." If you've ever rolled your eyes over the scratching matches between the trades over executives you never heard of leaving agencies you could care less about, this is for you. If the words "soft pass" make you cringe, this will hit home. It's a fun goof on the daily trade game, with more than a couple big laughs. So check out the trailer featuring Christina Applegate and Jean Smart below.

Ryan Murphy's HBO pilot 'Open' adds Wes Bentley

Having conquered network television and basic cable, Ryan Murphy's trying his luck on premium cable -- and he's taking Wes Bentley with him.

The "Hunger Games" star has signed on to star in Murphy's "Open," a drama pilot at HBO. The project, co-written with Lauren Gussis ("Dexter"), is described as a modern, provocative exploration of human sexuality and relationships.

The Wrap reports that Bentley will play Evan Foster in the series, a character described as "handsome and knows it, arrogant and completely charismatic, a bit of a blowhard who loves espousing his theories on human sexuality."

"Open" marks a rare foray into TV for Bentley. Previously, the actor was attached to the HBO pilot "Tilda," starring Ellen Page and Diane Keaton, but the pilot never went to series.

Beyond his role as Seneca Crane in "The Hunger Games," Bentley's other film credits include "American Beauty" and "Lovelace."

Michael Douglas And Diane Keaton Team Up For Comedy And So It Goes...

Though he's never gone away, exactly, Michael Douglas is due for a comeback-- and seems to have it coming in spades, with a role playing Ronald Reagan in the political drama Reykjavik and, coming much sooner, a splashy part playing Liberace in Steven Soderbergh's biopic Behind The Candelabra, due on HBO next year. Diane Keaton, who's been acting almost exactly as long as Douglas has, needs a comeback much more-- she hasn't starred in a movie anyone actually saw since Something's Gotta Give nearly 10 years ago, and a splashy role in the HBO series Tilda failed to materialize when the show wasn't picked up. So maybe Douglas can help Keaton pick up a little steam, with the two of them teaming up for And So It Goes., a romantic comedy from As Good As It Gets writer Mark Andrus. According to Deadline Douglas will star as a "self-absorbed and

Jack Donaghy Had a One-Night Stand with Nikki Finke: Toldja!

Jack Donaghy Had a One-Night Stand with Nikki Finke: Toldja!
Has Alec Baldwin's Jack Donaghy got network TV's weirdest and most storied sex life? His on-screen romances have been with characters played by the likes of Isabella Rossellini, Emily Mortimer and Elizabeth Banks, but his many implied off-screen entanglements include Martha and Alexis Stewart, Condoleezza Rice, Peggy Fleming and, quite possibly, Dick Cheney. And last night the "30 Rock" protag confessed to a fling with a certain Hollywood journalist and blogger with a signature phrase: In response to that "I hate to say toldja, because it reminds me of my one night stand with Nikki Finke," Finke wrote at Deadline Hollywood: "Sorry, Jack Donaghy, you’re just not my type. Because Don Draper ruined me for other men." Finke had an earlier brush with scripted TV infamy in 2010, when HBO began working on the pilot for "Tilda," in which Diane Keaton was slated to play a very Finke-like...

Working Women: Keaton & HBO Try Again, New Development Deal; Rhimes Sells Period Drama Gilded Lillys

Working Women: Keaton & HBO Try Again, New Development Deal; Rhimes Sells Period Drama Gilded Lillys
While Tilda met an unfortunate fate at HBO, the cable channel just signed another development deal with Tilda's would-be star, Diane Keaton. (Here's why the Nikki Finke-inspired series got the axe.) What kind of vehicle will HBO create for Keaton? We like the idea of a starring series vehicle, even if she is one of the few actresses still working in their 60s. Coming up are small-scale films from Lawrence Kasdan (Darling Companion), Justin Zackham (The Wedding) and the Matthew McDuffie and Arie Posen scripted The Look of Love. It-girl Emma Stone may have dubbed her her idol (she told Vanity Fair she admires Keaton as “one of the most covered-up actresses of all time”), but Keaton is still one of a kind. Shonda Rhimes, ...

Diane Keaton heads back to HBO with post-'Tilda' talent deal

HBO may have taken a pass on "Tilda," the comedic pilot loosely based on Hollywood blogger Nikki Finke, but the network clearly remains interested in star Diane Keaton.

The 65-year-old actress signed a new talent holding deal with HBO, and Deadline reports writers are currently developing possible projects for her.

Keaton's history at HBO has thus far been full of misses.

Pilot production on "Tilda," which saw her filling the titular role, was marred with behind-the-scenes drama. Showrunner Cynthia Mort left after reportedly clashing with producer/director Bill Condon, making way for former "Six Feet Under" producer Alan Poul. HBO eventually axed the project altogether, chalking it up to the dreaded "not the right show for us at this time."

Before "Tilda," Keaton originally signed a deal with HBO that attached her to a comedy project from "Buffy" scribe and new "Glee" consulting producer Marti Noxon. The series was to

HBO Back In Business With Diane Keaton With New Talent Deal

HBO is high on getting a show with Diane Keaton on the air. Following the pay cable network’s decision not to go forward with the dark comedy pilot Tilda, which starred the Oscar winner, HBO has quietly inked a new talent holding deal with Keaton and has writers developing projects for her. The network first signed Keaton in a talent deal a few years ago. The actress became attached to a comedy project written by Marti Noxon about an old-guard feminist leader who tries to give new spark to the cause by starting a sexually frank women’s magazine. While the project ultimately didn’t go to pilot, HBO brass sparked to Cynthia Mort and Bill Condon’s script for Tilda and sent it to Keaton who signed on to do it.
