Matt Bomer Will Become One Of The Nice Guys For Shane Black

17 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Casting’s heating up on Shane Black’s upcoming period actioner, The Nice Guys, as Matt Bomer has signed on to the Warner Bros. production.

Co-written by Black and Anthony Bagarozzi, the film harkens to the noirs of times past. Bomer will join Ryan Gosling, who plays Holland March, a troubled private detective in 1970s Los Angeles. When March hooks up with tough guy Jackson Healy – played by Russell Crowe – the pair unite to track down a missing girl and solve the seemingly-unrelated death of a porn star. Somewhere in the mix, Bomer’s character makes an appearance. As yet, we’re not sure who he’s slated to play.

We do know that as well as Gosling and Crowe, he’ll be joining The Leftovers’ Margaret Qualley who’s set to take the female lead. Currently back on set for Magic Mike Xxl, Bomer will start shooting after principal »

Matt Bomer Joins Ryan Gosling & Russell Crowe In ‘The Nice Guys’

18 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Matt Bomer has been set to star opposite Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe in The Nice Guys, the action drama that Iron Man 3‘s Shane Black wrote and is directing with Joel Silver producing at Warner Bros. I would say that Bomer plays the heavy, but he’ll be carrying little if any body fat as he comes right from Savannah after he wraps the sequel Magic Mike Xxl. I can still remember when Bomer, a complete unknown, was verging on being The Guy when Brett Ratner tapped him to be Superman in the trilogy of films that got grounded. It has taken some time, but Bomer is getting his movie chance now. As his USA show White Collar ends this fall after its six-season run, Bomer now is focused on big-screen opportunities. That effort was helped by the chops he displayed in a heartbreaking turn as Felix »

Did You Even Realize How Hot FX’s Leading Men Are?

17 September 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

View Photo Gallery

There’s no doubt that one of the hottest basic cable lineups belongs to FX. The channel as a whole is home to some of the boldest shows, and in its 20th year, it still takes major risks. The network has been rewarded with plenty of fans — who come back season after season, show after show, to not only see great scripted dramas and hilarious comedies but also some of the sexiest men on TV. There’s a reason Sons of Anarchy is such a major success: Charlie Hunnam. (Why else would he have originally landed the role of Christian Grey in film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey?) And then there are all the men in Ryan Murphy‘s rotating cast of American Horror Story. Joining Denis O’Hare and Evan Peters this season are Finn Wittrock (The Normal Heart) and Wes Bentley (The Hunger Games »

Ryan Murphy on 'Ahs: Freak Show': 'This season, once you die, you're dead'

15 September 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

By now, avid TV watchers know that each season of American Horror Story is an entirely new plot but with much of the same group of actors. Each installment also most importantly stems from the brilliant and imaginative minds of co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. For EW’s Fall TV Preview, on stands now, Murphy offered up some details from the New Orleans set of Ahs’s latest installment, Freak Show—about the titular group of entertainers in 1952 in Jupiter, Florida—which premieres Oct. 8 at 10pm on FX.

Sound off on 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' controversy: It's a prequel to 'Asylum''

12 September 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

(Left to right: Pepper in a 1952 freak show and Pepper in a 1964 asylum.) TV producer Ryan Murphy ("The Normal Heart," "Glee," "Nip/Tuck") is no stranger to controversy, but this week's "American Horror Story" news is one of the more shocking to come from his wheelhouse. Despite FX billing "American Horror Story" as a stand-alone anthology series every year, Murphy confirmed today that fan-favorite "Asylum" character Pepper (Naomi Grossman) would return in the upcoming "Freak Show" season, thus making 1952-set "Freak Show" an indirect prequel to "Asylum," which took place in 1964. Are you happy that "Freak Show" will be a prequel to "Asylum," or should "Ahs" have continued its stand-alone legacy? Vote in our poll below! -Break- "[We'll see] what happened to Pepper before she went to the asylum," Murphy told Entertainment Weekly. »

Somehow, Ryan Murphy’s ultra-sexy drama series is not getting made at HBO — despite starring Anna Torv, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jaimie Alexander, Michelle Monaghan, Scott Speedman and Wes Bentley.

HBO has shut the door on Open, the Glee and American Horror Story co-creator’s risque take on modern romance that was described as “a multicharacter exploration of the complex, ever evolving landscape of sexuality, monogamy and intimacy in relationships.”

The premium network’s programming president Michael Lombardo said in a statement: “After such a triumphant collaboration with The Normal Heart, everyone felt that Open was not the right next step for all involved. »

Toronto Spotlight: ‘Foxcatcher’s Bennett Miller On Wrestling with Psychosis And Dislocated People In His Non-Fiction Films

9 September 2014 6:48 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Many saw Foxcatcher when Bennett Miller and Sony Pictures Classics premiered it at Cannes. I saw it yesterday at Toronto, and the tale about two Olympic Gold Medalist brother wrestlers who get entwined with the bizarre Du Pont family scion John is just as soul crushing when it veers from a quirky character study to tragedy. The human need that gets twisted and corroded in the relationship between Mark and Dave Schultz with Du Pont is every bit as powerful as the strange bond between In Cold Blood killer Perry Smith and Truman Capote in Miller’s first narrative film. Capote got five Oscar noms and won Philip Seymour Hoffman his Best Actor Oscar, and Miller’s follow-up, Moneyball, got six Oscar noms including Best Picture. Foxcatcher’s had Oscar buzz on it since Cannes, where Miller was named Best Director and the film was a Palm d’Or nominee with praise for Steve Carell, »

Tiff 2014: In shapes of all kinds, Mark Ruffalo hits a stride

7 September 2014 7:53 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Mark Ruffalo is transforming.

With a string of films, from the lauded AIDS drama The Normal Heart to the musical rebirth tale Begin Again to the upcoming wrestling drama Foxcatcher, the man many know as the Hulk has muscled together a shape-shifting string of roles.

"You push and you work hard, you stay positive and eventually all the stars sort of align," Ruffalo said in an interview. "I feel like I'm kind of in one of those moments where everything converges at one time. It's been an interesting few years for me and kind of tough, just my inner-life. I feel like I had kind of a midlife thing going on. People close to me died. It's just been a really reflective time and a growing time, so where I'm at right now feels like, 'Ok, I'm coming out of the other side of that and I survived it.' »

Toronto: Julia Roberts Joins Chiwetel Ejiofor, Gwyneth Paltrow in ‘Secret in Their Eyes’ Remake

4 September 2014 4:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Julia Roberts is in talks to come on board Billy Ray’s remake of “The Secret in Their Eyes” opposite Chiwetel Ejiofor and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Im Global, which is fully financing the project, is selling the rights to the project at the Toronto Film Festival.

The project had moved forward at Cannes when Ray, the writer of “Captain Phillips,” signed on to direct with Ejiofor and Paltrow attached to the adaptation of the Argentinean pic that won the 2009 Academy Award for foreign-language film.

The original, directed by Juan Jose Campanella and starring Ricardo Darin, was based on the Eduardo Sacheri novel about a romance between a retired judiciary employee and a judge who work to solve a 1974 rape and murder two decades after it took place.

Mark Johnson will produce along with John Ufland. The remake, described as a sophisticated crime thriller, is scheduled to start production this fall.

Julia Roberts Will Star In The Secret In Their Eyes Remake

4 September 2014 3:57 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With festival season taking a hold of all things cinema at the moment, the slew of casting announcements is showing no signs of slowing down. Straight out of Toronto, Deadline reports that America’s sweetheart, Julia Roberts, is set to star in a remake of Oscar-winning Argentinian flick, The Secret In Their Eyes. The actress is on something of a winning streak lately, following on from her killer turn in last year’s August: Osage County and HBO’s The Normal Heart. Now, that trend looks set to continue with today’s news.

With Billy Ray (Captain Phillips) on board to direct, the movie has been passing through the development process at a steady pace. Plus, it already had a female lead – Gwyneth Paltrow. So, what does this mean for Gwynnie?

Even more interesting is that the report goes on to say they’re currently searching for a male lead. »
