Willow Smith Sets Up 2 Fantasy Film Projects – Trilogy ‘Rebel of the Sands’ and ‘Menencholy’

11 April 2017 4:47 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Sixteen-year-old Willow Smith, who, lately, has been more focused on her music than on her acting (recall she was originally supposed to star in the 2014 remake of “Annie,” produced by her father Will Smith, but would opt out of… Continue Reading → »

“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” Co-Creator Aline Brosh McKenna Signs Overall Deal With CBS TV Studios

17 March 2017 11:02 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Aline Brosh McKenna: CBS Television Studios

This calls for a celebratory song and dance number. “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” co-creator, showrunner, and executive producer Aline Brosh McKenna is strengthening her relationship with the studio behind the critically acclaimed CW musical comedy series. Deadline reports that she’s signed a two-year overall deal with CBS Television Studios. The pact sees her developing new projects for the network and cable via Lean Machine, her production company.

“McKenna is one of the highest-grossing female screenwriters of all time with a combined box office total of over $850 million worldwide for films such as ‘27 Dresses,’ ‘Annie,’ and ‘The Devil Wears Prada,’” Deadline writes. And she probably has her biggest commercial success on the way: McKenna co-wrote Disney’s upcoming live-action “Cruella,” starring Oscar winner Emma Stone. She also penned a graphic novel that will be published this fall, a contemporary take on “Jane Eyre.” It seems possible that the multi-hyphenate will start directing features sometime in the future — she’s helmed two episodes of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” so far.

“I try to avoid what I call fauxmergencies,” McKenna has said of her job as boss on the set of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.” “As far as I’m concerned, if no one’s bleeding it’s not really an emergency because we’re just making a TV show.” Clearly that mentality is working out for her. The Golden Globe-winning series will return for a third season, most likely this fall.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” Co-Creator Aline Brosh McKenna Signs Overall Deal With CBS TV Studios was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

‘Baby Driver’: Edgar Wright’s Super-Diverse Soundtrack Is Your New Favorite Playlist — Listen

12 March 2017 10:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Baby Driver” premiered at South by Southwest last night, and early word on Edgar Wright’s latest is highly positive. IndieWire’s Eric Kohn calls the “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz” director’s fifth film “a wildly successful romantic heist comedy, propelled from scene to scene with a lively soundtrack that elevates its slick chase scenes into a realm of musicality that develops its own satisfying beat.”

Kohn isn’t the only one to draw attention to the film’s soundtrack, which includes offerings from the likes of Randy Newman, the Beach Boys, Beck, Queen and Simon & Garfunkel (from whose song “Baby Driver” takes its name). The film doesn’t open in theaters until August 11, but this Spotify playlist will give you an idea of what to expect from the Ost. »

‘Baby Driver’ Review: Edgar Wright’s Brilliant Car Chase Musical Casts Ansel Elgort As an Outlaw Fred Astaire — SXSW 2017

12 March 2017 12:35 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Like every Edgar Wright movie since “Shaun of the Dead,” the director’s fifth feature, “Baby Driver,” takes a ludicrous concept and turns it into a brilliant exercise in high style and a rush of big ideas. The director’s most ambitious work to date is a wildly successful romantic heist comedy, propelled from scene to scene with a lively soundtrack that elevates its slick chase scenes into a realm that develops its own satisfying beat.

If Busby Berkeley made “Grand Theft Auto,” it might look something like this exuberant comic caper, in which young getaway driver Baby (Ansel Elgort) speeds through highways and back alleys seemingly impervious to police advances so long as he has a smooth beat to guide his maneuvers. Operating under the employ of robbery maestro Doc (a stern Kevin Spacey), Baby quietly works off a debt to his boss by hauling two-bit criminals out of harm’s way, »

Oscars 2017: 'Moonlight,' Warren Beatty and the Perfect Hollywood Ending

27 February 2017 8:01 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Forget it, Jake – it's La La Land.

No wait, sorry, there's been a mistake. it's Moonlight! Our bad.

What a glorious only-in-Hollywood fiasco, and what a sublimely insane ending to an Oscar night for the ages. It was just like the end of Bonnie and Clyde: Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway bask in each others' glow, there's suddenly an awkward silence, they share a moment of doomed erotic eye contact ... and then oh, the carnage. The only thing missing was some sad banjo music. The Best Picture screw-up was »

Review: 'The Lego Batman Movie' is Gotham City's Finest Hour Yet

7 February 2017 11:21 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Before The Lego Batman Movie, Chris McKay (of Moral Orel, Robot Chicken) was best known as the animation co-director and editor of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller’s 2014 film, The Lego Movie. His work on the critically acclaimed film earned him the American Cinema Editors Eddie Award for Best Edited Feature Film, Animation, as well as an Annie Award nomination for Best Edited Animation Feature Film. Now, McKay will forever be known as the guy who saved Gotham City’s Caped Crusader from a dark and gritty existence with The Lego Batman Movie, perhaps the best film based on a DC Comics property since 2008’s The Dark Knight, and maybe the best pure Batman movie since Nolan's Batman Begins (2005). The story opens with The Joker, voiced by Zach Galifianakis, leading a full-scale attack on Gotham City with Batman's vast Rogues Gallery of bad guys, including heavy hitters Bane (Doug »

Halloween apparently comes early this year — February offers a quartet of promising horror movies, not to mention the latest chapter in the Fifty Shades erotic saga (which is its own sort of horror).

Martin Scorsese’s Mike Tyson Biopic Still A Go, Jamie Foxx Confirms

11 January 2017 7:53 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This week, Jamie Foxx will make his return to the big screen in Sleepless. Though it admittedly looks like a rather generic crime thriller – and has been dumped in January, which isn’t an encouraging sign – it’ll be nice to see the Oscar winner back in theatres. The actor’s been taking it easy lately, not having starred in a film since 2014’s mediocre Annie. It seems that he’s now back in full force though, with several exciting projects on his slate that we’re definitely looking forward to.

One of those happens to be a biopic about Mike Tyson. Believe it or not, the iconic boxing legend has never really had a notable feature film made about his life, despite it being quite ripe for cinematic adaptation. However, Foxx is looking to change all that. For a while now we’ve heard that he’d be starring »

Jamie Foxx describes 2018’s Robin Hood: Origins as gritty and real

5 January 2017 11:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Among the key players set to appear in 2018’s Otto Bathurst-directed Robin Hood adaptation, Robin Hood: Origins, it’s Jamie Foxx’s casting as Little John that has most fans clamoring to see the film. After taking a bit of a break from acting after 2014’s Annie, the actor will be back in full force this year with SleeplessBaby Driver and plenty of other movies moving forward; while promoting the former of those films, Foxx let some details slip about Origins and even talked some good-hearted smack about other Robin Hood movies in development.

The actor exclusively said the following to We Got This Covered when asked about Origins: “Those other Robin Hoods don’t mean shit. Our Robin Hood, it’s on. We’re battling, gonna drop the same day. What’s different about ours? It’s just a grittier take. With Otto [Bathurst] directing, it’s just a grittier take. »
