17 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Outfest will honor Tom Hanks and Lisa Cholodenko at ceremonies on Nov. 5 at Vibiana in downtown Los Angeles.

Hanks will be honored with the Trailblazer Award in recognition of his Oscar-winning performance in 1993’s “Philadelphia.” Outfest noted that it was the first major studio film to sympathetically portray characters with HIV/AIDS.

Cholodenko is receiving the Visionary Award, which recognizes artistic and creative contributions to Lgbt media visibility, for a body of work that includes “The Kids Are All Right.”

“More than two decades later, Tom Hanks’ performance as a gay man with AIDS in ‘Philadelphia’ stands as a landmark example of a risk well taken,” says Outfest Board Co-President and Legacy Awards Event Co-Chair Ari Karpel. “And his Oscar acceptance speech, in which he eloquently honored two gay men who were influential in his life, sent an essential message during a time of crisis.”

Cate Blanchett Will Be Lucille Ball

2 September 2015 5:44 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Here’s an enticing prospect: Cate Blanchett starring as Lucille Ball? It could happen, as production company Escape Artists is looking to put together a biopic package that includes Blanchett starring as the entertainment icon and a script that has Aaron Sorkin’s brand of wordplay. The Hollywood Reporter’s story mentions that Sorkin hasn’t definitely signed on yet, but Ball’s story is surely a tempting draw for the writer, particularly since he could use an outlet to demonstrate he can write great female characters after criticisms on projects such as The Social Network and The Newsroom. The actress and producer was a driving force alongside then husband Desi Arnaz for shows such as I Love Lucy, The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour, The Lucy Show, Here’s Lucy and Life With Lucy. Before her TV stardom, she worked extensively in film and is still regarded as a comedy legend. »

Chris Messina In Talks To Star Opposite Ben Affleck In Live By Night

28 August 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last we reported on Ben Affleck’s adaptation of Live By Night, it had slipped down the actor-director’s pecking order as he focused attention on donning the cape and cowl for Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. But with a November start date fast-approaching, Affleck is ready to assemble his cast and crew for the crime drama, itself an adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s (Shutter Island) eponymous novel.

The latest star to enter talks to board the thriller is The Mindy Project and The Newsroom alum, Chris Messina, who could reunite with his Argo co-star should this deal pan out. Rather than a tense hostage situation, Live By Night would have Messina step into the role of Affleck’s literal partner in crime. Then again, Elle Fanning, Sienna Miller and Zoe Saldana are all still circling the gestating project, which has suffered setbacks due to Affleck »

Chris Messina is in negotiations to co-star opposite Ben Affleck in Warner Bros.’ crime drama “Live By Night.”

Sources say that as cameras are expected to start rolling in November, more offers are expected to be handed out. »

7 Things We Learned From Quentin Tarantino’s New Interview

24 August 2015 2:44 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Quentin Tarantino is never one to hold back his opinion. The acclaimed filmmaker dished on everything from the possibility of another “Kill Bill” installment to his distaste for Cate Blanchett movies and “True Detective” in his interview with New York magazine. And if you ask Tarantino, Ben Affleck is no David O. Russell when it comes to casting films.

The writer-director also teased his upcoming Western thriller, “The Hateful Eight.”

Here are the most interesting tidbits from the colorful interview.

The “Kill Bill” franchise may still have some life in it:

“No, it’s not off the table, but we’ll see.”

Tarantino loved “How I Met Your Mother,” but hated “True Detective” from the get-go.

“The last two shows that I watched all the way were ‘Justified’ and ‘How I Met Your Mother.'”

“I tried to watch the first episode of season one [of ‘True Detective’], and I didn’t get into it at all. »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Actor in a Drama Series

20 August 2015 8:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

"Mad Men" has enjoyed a long and successful relationship with the TV Academy. Matthew Weiner's series won Best Drama at the Emmys for its first four seasons, among other numerous trophies. But its leading man has never won. Despite earning a nomination every year "Mad Men" has been eligible (plus guest star nods for "30 Rock" in three seasons and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" this year), Hamm has lost every single year (spurring him to create the "Losers' Party" with fellow snubee Amy Poehler). Will he join the ranks of the unjustly ignored like Jason Alexander and Steve Carell, or will the Academy finally reward him in his final year as Don Draper?  Read More: Jeff Daniels on the End of 'The Newsroom': 'It's Really Difficult to Do Well' The answer will be "no" if Kevin Spacey has anything to say about it.
