Nicole Kidman Just Won Her First Emmy, but It Wasn't Her First Shot at the Gold

20 September 2017 5:40 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

To the delight of Big Little Lies fans everywhere, Nicole Kidman took home her first Emmy on Sunday night for outstanding lead actress in a limited series or movie for her performance as Celeste Wright. During her speech, Kidman fought back tears as she thanked husband Keith Urban and their two daughters, Sunday, 9, and Faith, 6. She also won the outstanding limited series trophy for her work as a producer on the HBO show. While it may have been the Australian star's first time taking home Emmy gold, it definitely wasn't her first shot at it. In 2012, Kidman was nominated for outstanding lead actress in a limited series or movie for her role as Martha Gellhorn in Hemingway & Gellhorn. Sadly, she lost to Julianne Moore, who won for Game Change, but we have a feeling she won't be losing sleep over that loss any longer. Now if only we could get »

HBO Films Redefined the TV Movie — Now It’s Poised to Redefine Itself

13 September 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

694 nominations. 162 wins.

No network has so dominated a category at the Emmy Awards as HBO has TV movies. Its unprecedented run dates back to 1993 with a double win for “Barbarians at the Gate” and “Stalin”; since then, it’s lost just four times.

This year, it has two high-profile contenders — “The Wizard of Lies,” starring Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer, and “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks,” headlined by Oprah Winfrey — as part of the cabler’s overall 111 nominations. Poised to play spoiler are a new iteration of PBS’ “Sherlock” (which won last year) and the “San Junipero” episode of Netflix’s “Black Mirror.”

“If you look at the category, we know there are a lot of things that maybe aren’t necessarily movies,” says HBO Films president Len Amato, a not-so-thinly veiled slight against the stand-alone episode of “Black Mirror.” “But we just continue to play our game.”

'Rebel in the Rye' Review: 'Spineless' J.D. Salinger Biopic Disappoints

8 September 2017 12:23 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Movies about writers so rarely work that it's a wonder anyone still tries to make them. Rebel in the Rye tries very hard to get inside the head of J.D. Salinger as he struggles to write The Catcher in the Rye. Solid idea; spineless execution. Danny Strong, in his feature directing debut, knows how to put a movie together. But his script is basically an overload of cliches that Salinger's writing avoided like Kryptonite. Strong, whose TV writing is exemplary (Recount, Game Change), is doing a by-the-numbers biopic drawn from »

‘Game Change’ Writer Danny Strong Wants to Make a Movie About Donald Trump (Video)

29 August 2017 5:55 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Danny Strong has written two successful movies about contemporary American politics, but the “Rebel in the Rye” director said he’d need a beat before tackling the presidency of Donald Trump. “I’m waiting to see what happens,” Strong said in an interview with TheWrap’s Sharon Waxman. “Every day is so chaotic and so many things happen. Every single day, literally there’s three different things.” Strong first broke out as a writer in 2008 with HBO’s “Recount,” the Jay Roach-directed film dramatizing the recount of votes cast during the 2000 presidential election. Four years later, Strong and Roach re-teamed for “Game Change, »

Rebecca Thomas Will Direct Sci-Fi Thriller “Intelligent Life”

22 August 2017 7:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Rebecca Thomas: Perri Nemiroff/YouTube

Rebecca Thomas will be taking the reins on another sci-fi film. The “Stranger Things” director — who signed on for the sci-fi action-thriller “Malignant” earlier this month — will helm Amblin Entertainment’s “Intelligent Life.” The Hollywood Reporter broke the story.

Originally written by “Jurassic World” scribes Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, “Intelligent Life” follows a Un worker who manages to communicate with a woman — who is possibly an alien — as he surveils outer space. Jay Roach (“Game Change”) was hired last year to touch up Trevorrow and Connolly’s script, and Thomas will also reportedly be contributing some re-writes.

“Rebecca beautifully captured the alienation we often feel amongst our fellow humans in her first feature [‘Electrick Children’],” Trevorrow and producer Frank Marshall said in a statement. “We can’t wait to see her explore those themes further in a story about our place in the universe.”

Ava DuVernay was originally in talks to direct Lupita Nyong’o in “Intelligent Life.” Neither woman is still attached to the project.

Based on the Boom! Studios comic “Malignant Man” and written by Zak Olkewicz, Thomas’ “Malignant” will center on a terminally ill patient who is tasked with fighting a secret army after finding out his tumor is actually an alien parasite.

Thomas has a number of high-profile films in the works, including a live-action telling of “The Little Mermaid” starring Chloe Grace Moretz (“If I Stay”), and an adaptation of beloved John Green Ya novel “Looking for Alaska.” In March she signed on to bring Cheryl Della Pietra’s semi-autobiographical novel “Gonzo Girl” to the big screen.

She made her feature debut with 2012’s “Electrick Children,” a drama about a Mormon teen who thinks she was impregnated by listening to music. Shorts “Ivan Sings” and “Las Vegas, West,” and an episode of Jennifer Kaytin Robinson’s “Sweet/Vicious” are among her other credits.

Rebecca Thomas Will Direct Sci-Fi Thriller “Intelligent Life” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

‘Rebel in the Rye’: Why Danny Strong Recut His J.D. Salinger Biopic After the Sundance Premiere

3 August 2017 11:16 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For his directorial debut, Danny Strong wanted to get a little more personal. The multi-hyphenate is known for his work on both sides of the camera, from acting in small screen fare like “Gilmore Girls” and “Mad Men,” to scripting features like “Game Change” (the HBO movie that earned him two Emmys), “Lee DanielsThe Butler,” and the final pair of “Hunger Games” films, in addition to creating a little show called “Empire,” but when it came time to direct, Strong sought out something closer to his own experience. A biopic of J.D. Salinger fit the bill.

But when Strong’s “Rebel in the Rye” premiered at Sundance earlier this year, the fact-based feature wasn’t a universal crowdpleaser. Fortunately, that’s not the movie audiences will see when it opens in September, and Strong is hopeful that the new version speaks more clearly to his original intentions when it came to telling the story. »

‘Rebel in the Rye’ Trailer Celebrates the Genius of J.D. Salinger

20 July 2017 12:16 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

IFC Films has released the Rebel in the Rye trailer. The upcoming biopic from writer-director Danny Strong (Game Change) follows J.D. Salinger (Nicholas Hoult) from aspiring writer through the creation of his defining work, The Catcher in the Rye. The story takes us through Salinger’s complicated relationship with his father, learning from mentor and professor Whit Burnett (Kevin Spacey), fighting in World War II, and returning home to cope with Ptsd by trying to finish Catcher in the Rye.

How to Cast the Inevitable James Comey Senate Hearing Movie

8 June 2017 10:54 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

FBI Director James Comey‘s appearance before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill was a real who’s who of Washington D.C., and the dramatic question and answer session had all the makings of a political thriller. While it remains to be seen whether the investigation into President Donald Trump‘s campaign ties to Russia will lead to a Watergate-like scandal, we’re already well on our way to casting the 2017 version of “All the President’s Men.”

Ed Harris’ ‘Westworld’ Turn Was A Perfect Late-Career Move For One of Our Best Actors — Career Watch

5 June 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Ed Harris, who’s doing what he’s always done: owning character roles in film, theater and television.

Bottom Line: Harris has an iconic masculine American gravitas. The camera loves him and you can count on Harris to deliver a character’s emotional spine with subtle and sturdy grace. That’s why this hard-working actor never falls out of demand. And he seemingly can do anything, whether stalwart hero (John Glenn in “The Right Stuff” or the Mission Control voice in “Apollo 13” or “Gravity”) or contemptible villain (see “The Firm,” “Enemy at the Gates,” “Swing Shift,” or “The Rock”).

Director Peter Weir (“The Truman Show,” “The Way Back”) once told me that shooting Harris is “spiritual, a man that has a past and regrets, »

TriStar developing TV series on Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential bid

7 May 2017 5:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that Hillary Clinton’s failed bid to become the first female President of the United States could be heading to the small screen, as TriStar Television has optioned the rights to the book Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign to develop as a limited series.

The official description for the book reads: “It was never supposed to be this close. And of course she was supposed to win. How Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election to Donald Trump is the riveting story of a sure thing gone off the rails. For every Comey revelation or hindsight acknowledgment about the electorate, no explanation of defeat can begin with anything other than the core problem of Hillary’s campaign–the candidate herself. Through deep access to insiders from the top to the bottom of the campaign, political writers Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes have reconstructed the key decisions and unseized opportunities, »

We already know that the next season of “American Horror Story” will be election themed, the team behind “Recount” and “Game Change” are developing a miniseries based around the Clinton/Trump race last year, and Annapurna and “Hurt Locker” writer Mark Boal are developing a project as well.

Yeah, Baby! ‘Austin Powers’ Shagged Its Way to Theaters 20 Years Ago

28 April 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery” opened May 2, 1997, Variety described it as an “odd mix of sophisticated and lowbrow humor” but was enthused about the Mike Myers-Jay Roach collaboration. The film had cost less than $20 million so it was profitable with a modest $67 million worldwide. There was no deal in place for a sequel, but New Line execs noticed the comedy was a huge hit in home video and on cable. When the studio greenlit a sequel, many rival execs were surprised: They were still defining success solely by domestic box office.

Boosted by massive marketing tie-ins, 1999’s “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” saw a spectacular domestic opening weekend of $55 million and completed its global run with $312 million. “Austin Powers in Goldmember” (2002) scored $296 million worldwide. After many years, rumors persist that a fourth edition is imminent. As Powers himself would say, “Yeah, baby!”

HBO has announced that it is developing a miniseries based upon the 2016 Presidential Election and Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in what has been described as one of the biggest political upsets of all time.
