Carole King Broadway musical ‘Beautiful’ getting big screen adaptation

23 March 2015 10:06 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

If you caught Carole King performing with Sara Bareilles at the 2014 Grammys, you’d know just how timeless an artist King and her work are. Her Diamond graded pop-album Tapestry from 1971 is a masterpiece, and one of the best selling albums of all time. And though today King maybe doesn’t get the indie cred as some of her ’70s, singer/songwriter female contemporaries like say, Joni Mitchell, that may be about to change.

Broadway World was the first to report that Sony has just secured the rights to adapt the Broadway hit Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, along with King’s life rights, her songwriting collaborators’ life rights, and the rights to many of her hit songs including “The Locomotion,” “One Fine Day,” “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” “So Far Away,” “I Feel the Earth Move,” and “You’ve Got a Friend.”

‘Network’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Academy)

20 March 2015 2:33 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Faye Dunaway, William Holden, Peter Finch, Robert Duvall, Wesley Addy, Ned Beatty | Written by Paddy Chayefsky | Directed by Sidney Lumet

In the cynical age of the Internet we’ve grown to understand how the news works and how the networks manipulate information into a form that will try to persuade the people watching just what the truth is (in a totally biased way of course).  If you’ve not worked it out yet, then maybe you need to take a few notes from Arrow Academy’s latest release, Sidney Lumet’s Network.

When Howard Beale (Peter Finch) the news anchor for the Ubs Television Network finds he is losing his job because he no longer pulls in the ratings he announces live on television he will commit suicide live on television next week.  Causing controversy the network give him another chance, only to lead him to yet another rant to the audience. »

Steve McQueen’s HBO Drama ‘Codes Of Conduct’ Picked Up As Limited Series

See Michael Fassbender As Steve Jobs In New Promo Poster

17 March 2015 8:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After Christian Bale exited Danny Boyle’s upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, many believed the project to have lost its driving element. Bale’s resemblance to the Apple founder is perhaps greater than the man who would actually go on to play him; Michael Fassbender. Regardless, in this first leaked poster it appears as if Fassbender is right at home in the shoes of the technological pioneer.

The poster is a replica of the original promotional ad for Jobs’ NeXT computer. In the snap, Fassbender occupies the same space that Jobs did during that round of marketing and while he doesn’t look remotely like the man, this is a movie. Disbelief has to be suspended just a little.

For those of you who may need a refresher, the movie is scripted by Aaron Sorkin who has repeatedly affirmed that the finished feature won’t resemble a traditional biopic. Instead it »

Limitless TV show: Jake McDorman to star

12 March 2015 1:39 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The TV series based on Bradley Cooper’s Limitless film will star Jake McDorman, also seen in American Sniper

Here’s an interesting coincidence – Jake McDorman, who starred alongside Bradley Cooper in American Sniper (he played Biggles) will now take the lead in the TV version of Limitless, the Bradley Cooper vehicle from 2011.

Jake McDorman will play FBI employee Brian Sinclair, who “is coerced into using his newfound drug-enhanced abilities to solve weekly cases for the FBI,” after gaining Nzt-enhanced abilities.

Deadline describes this character as “the role Cooper originated in the Limitless movie.” However, as our commenters have pointed out before, Cooper’s character was an author called Eddie Morra. As far as we can remember, the FBI didn’t feature at all either.

It’s a bit of a mystery, then, whether the show will be linked to the film at all, or whether it will be a »

Chris Chalk Joins Gotham As Lucius Fox

11 March 2015 12:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Gotham has already introduced several characters that will play a key role in Bruce Wayne’s future vigilante career as the Batman, including Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Camren Bicondova), Harvey Dent (Nicholas D’Agosto), a handful of famous members of his rogues gallery, and even the Joker (Cameron Monaghan). Now, the series has added yet another important DC Comics character to the series: Lucius Fox.

Fox is, of course, Wayne Enterprises’ tech genius and its future President/CEO. He’s instrumental in Bruce’s nighttime crime-fighting hobby, as he helps design several of the Caped Crusader’s gadgets and weaponry. In Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, he was played by Morgan Freeman. On Gotham, his younger counterpart will be played by The Newsroom and 12 Years A Slave actor Chris Chalk.

Chalk will make his debut as Fox in the penultimate episode of the current season, with »

Gotham: Chris Chalk cast as Lucius Fox

9 March 2015 1:37 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Another iconic character from Batman lore is joining GothamChris Chalk will play Lucius Fox…

Anyone hoping that Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller would introduce several potential Lucius Fox actors over a period of several years and never reveal who the true Lucius was, your absurd hopes have sadly been tarnished – Chris Chalk will definitely portray the iconic Batman character.

It’s the first Gotham casting nugget we’ve reported in quite a while, seeing as the debut season is nearly complete in the States. With only four episodes left to go, we’ve been told to expect Lucius to appear in episode 21 (the penultimate instalment). Presumably, he will show up when Bruce gets even further involved with investigating Wayne Enterprises.

Indeed, this is where Lucius will be based, as the character description we’ve seen (“Wayne Enterprises resident tech genius [who] emerges as a moral beacon for young Bruce”) veers very »

"Gotham" Casts A Young Lucius Fox

7 March 2015 9:40 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Yet another key character in the Batman universe is joining Fox's "Gotham" series, and one that is actually more credibly slotted in than some of the other characters that have showed up so far.

"12 Years A Slave" and "The Newsroom" actor Chris Chalk has been cast as Lucius Fox, the resident tech genius at Wayne Enterprises. Fox emerges as a moral beacon for young Bruce Wayne, and his desire to help Bruce uphold his father's legacy eventually makes him one of the boy's most important confidants.

Chalk will appear in the twenty-first episode of the current first season with an option to return in the second season. Morgan Freeman played the character in Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight" trilogy.

'Gotham' Gets 'Homeland' Actor Chris Chalk as Lucius Fox

6 March 2015 4:25 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fox's Gotham is bringing in yet another DC Comics character towards the end of Season 1, with actor Chris Chalk signing on to play Wayne Enterprises tech genius Lucius Fox. The character will debut in the second-to-last episode this season, Episode 21, who "becomes a moral beacon" for Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz). Like Bruce, Lucius wants to uphold Thomas Wayne's legacy, and in the comic books, Lucius eventually becomes the Wayne Enterpries CEO, after Bruce becomes Batman.

Morgan Freeman played Lucius Fox in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. Throughout the first season of Gotham, it's been made quite clear that the Wayne Enterprises board members don't quite see eye-to-eye with young Bruce's philosophies. In last month's episode "Red Hood", Bruce and Alfred (Sean Pertwee) were paid a surprise visit by Alfred's old military buddy Reggie (David O'Hara), who we learned was actually acting as a spy for the Wayne Enterprises board members, »

Kristin Cavallari Thinks She's Hotter Than Olivia Munn

6 March 2015 9:04 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Kristin Cavallari is defending her hotness.

After her husband's teammate Kyle Long -- Kristin is married to Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler -- hosted a Twitter Q&A with fans on Wednesday and implied that he thinks 34-year-old former Newsroom star Olivia Munn is "the hotter girlfriend" (Olivia is dating Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers), the former Hills star jumped in herself to disagree.

It all started with this seemingly harmless fan question: "Who has the hotter girlfriend -- Cutler or Aaron Rodgers?," to which Long responded, "Well Cutty is married. And I love the newsroom.. Sooo."

“@JayDubWard: .@Ky1eLong who has the hotter girlfriend -- Cutler or Aaron Rodgers?” Well Cutty is married.. And I love the newsroom.. Sooo

— Kyle (@Ky1eLong) March 4, 2015

And Kristin clearly took offense to that response.

"Ummmm excuse me," the 28-year-old mother of two responded.

@Ky1eLong @JayDubWard ummmm excuse me

What nickname did Maggie Smith give Dev Patel while filming 'Second Best Exotic'?

6 March 2015 1:14 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you're heading to the multiplex this weekend there's a good chance that you'll be catching a movie starring Dev Patel.  It's a rare occurrence for any actor, but the "Slumdog Millionaire" breakout has the fortune of having two different films open in the U.S. today.   In Neill Blomkamp's "Chappie," Patel plays a robotics designer and computer programmer who brings the title character to life in a dangerous and unstable environment.  His other new release is Fox Searchlight's "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," where he reprises his role as Sonny, a young entrepreneur who runs what is effectively a retirement home for British Expats in Jaipur, India.  The surviving members of this geriatric crew, including Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Penelope Wilton and Celia Imrie, are all back for more life affirming adventures as Richard Gere checks in to stir things up.  Don't worry, the venerable Maggie Smith »

‘Baby,’ ‘Matriarca,’ ‘Suria’ Join Brazilian Powerhouse 02 Filmes’ TV Slate (Exclusive)

27 February 2015 2:55 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Underscoring the rapid consolidation of top-echelon Brazilian producers as diversified multi-project film-tv production houses, Sao Paulo’s o2 Filmes, whose credits include Fernando Meirelles’ “City of God” and “The Constant Gardner” and Stephen Daldry’s “Trash,” has eight TV fiction dramas in development, including half hour comedy “The Friends of My Baby” and the corruption-themed “Matriarca.”

Meirelles began his career working in TV. But the size of O2 Filmes’ current development slate suggests that Brazil’s top companies are taking the opportunities for TV production based out of Brazil very seriously indeed.

In early development, “The Friends of My Baby” is a comedy about a single father and a baby. Gnt, Brazil’s most prominent femme-targeting cable TV channel and one of the jewels in the crown of Globosat, Globo’s giant pay TV operator, has acquired Brazilian rights.

“Matriarca” is a “dark humored” fiction drama about Brazil’s political classes and corruption, »
