Sam Taylor-Johnson Not Returning to Direct 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Sequel

25 March 2015 7:47 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It's not a surprise, but Sam Taylor-Johnson will not return to direct Fifty Shades Darker, the sequel to this year's smash hit Fifty Shades of Grey, which is now over $558 million worldwide on a miniscule budget of only $40 million. The reports of Taylor-Johnson's head-butting with "Fifty Shades" author E.L. James were commonplace ahead of the film's release and James has even said she wants more control over the next film, including writing the screenplay herself as the first film was written by Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr. Banks) who is also confirmed to not be returning. Added to this is the equally unsurprising news Dakotah Johnson and Jamie Dornan want pay raises above the $250,000 they each received for the first film. Both are contractually obligated to return, but I fully expect those contracts to be renegotiated before the sequel gets underway. The Wrap amz asin="B00NCDVVLY" size="large" »

Thomas Newman to replace John Williams as composer of Steven Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies, first look image released

18 March 2015 11:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Steven Spielberg’s upcoming Cold War thriller, Bridge of Spies, has lost beloved and iconic composer John Williams.

Williams had to drop out of the film due to a minor health issue that has reportedly now been corrected. Due to the sudden interruption in his schedule, Williams was unavailable to provide the score for the film. In his stead, twelve-time Oscar nominee Thomas Newman, known for his scores in films like The Shawshank Redemption, Finding Nemo, Skyfall and Saving Mr. Banks, will compose for the film, which stars Tom Hanks.

Williams, who is now 83 and busier than ever, will re-unite with Spielberg for the director’s next film, The Bfg, which shoots later this year.

Spielberg's 'Bridge of Spies' Loses Composer John Williams

18 March 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

DreamWorks Pictures'/Fox 2000 Pictures' upcoming dramatic thriller directed by three-time Academy Award&#174-winning director Steven Spielberg (Saving Private Ryan, Schindler's List) and starring two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump, Philadelphia), has been, as previously announced, titled Bridge of Spies. In addition, 12-time Oscar nominee Thomas Newman (The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Saving Mr. Banks) has been signed to score the film, as John Williams' schedule was interrupted and he was unavailable to score the film due to a minor health issue, now corrected.

Spielberg-Hanks Cold War Film Titled ‘Bridge of Spies,’ John Williams Won’t Compose Score

18 March 2015 8:34 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks’ upcoming Cold War thriller has a title, “Bridge of Spies,” DreamWorks announced Wednesday.

The film is notable in that it is one of the rare Spielberg projects that will not feature a score composed by John Williams, whose soaring melodies have long been a staple of the director’s work. Instead Thomas Newman (“Saving Mr. Banks,” “The Help”) will handle music duties.

Williams was unable to work on the film due to what DreamWorks describes as “a minor health issue” that the company reports has been resolved. He has scored 26 of Spielberg’s 27 films — the only exception being 1985’s “The Color Purple.” Williams will reunite with Spielberg on his upcoming family film, “The Bfg.” Williams’ other credits include the “Star Wars” and “Harry Potter” films.

Bridge of Spies” centers on a Brooklyn lawyer (Hanks) who is sent by the CIA to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot. »

'Beauty and the Beast,' Arrives in March 2017, Gets Emma Thompson

16 March 2015 11:57 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After Cinderella crushed the competition at the box office this past weekend, Disney is sticking with spring releases for their live-action fairytales as the studio has just announced that their new adaptation of Beauty and the Beast (which will be getting a 3D release) will arrive in theaters on March 17th 2017. And with that news comes a couple new additions to the cast as well. Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks) will be playing Mrs. Potts while Kevin Kline (Last Vegas) will be playing the father of Belle (Emma Watson). But we're wondering who will play the bickering duo of Lumiere and Cogsworth in the adaptation. Otherwise, as we've previously reported, Dan Stevens (The Guest) will play The Beast, Luke Evans (The Hobbit) will play Gaston and Josh Gad will play his sidekick Le Fou. There's bound to be more casting announced very soon with some key supporting roles left to be filled. »

‘Beauty and the Beast’ Gets a Release Date as Emma Thompson Joins the Cast!

16 March 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast adds two more to the cast. And they are biggies!

News: 7 Reasons Why Emma Watson Is Perfect as Belle in 'Beauty and the Beast'

On Monday, Disney announced that Emma Thompson will join the cast as Mrs. Potts, most famously voiced by Angela Lansbury in the Oscar-nominated, animated version. The actress is no stranger to the world of Disney, as she played Mary Poppins author and creator P.L. Travers in Saving Mr. Banks.

Also adding Oscar pedigree to the cast is Kevin Kline, who will star as Belle’s father, Maurice.

The two stars join a growing cast, including Emma Watson as Belle, Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens as the beast, with Luke Evans and Josh Gad playing Gaston and his sidekick Lefou, respectively.

'Fifty Shades of Grey' Playroom Gets Renovated in Cut 'SNL' Sketch

3 March 2015 12:14 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey is currently being held up by negotiations with the source material's author E.L. James, who wants to write the screenplay to Fifty Shades Darker herself. However, that didn't stop "Saturday Night Live" from hypothesizing what might happen with Christian Grey's playroom in the sequel. The film's star Dakota Johnson hosted the late night sketch show over the weekend, but this sketch ended up getting cut for time. But thankfully, it's been posted online for us to enjoy. It's actually better than most of the sketches that aired for that episode, so I'm wondering why it ended up cut. Watch! Here's the unaired "Saturday Night Live" sketch for Fifty Shades Darker from YouTube: Fifty Shades of Grey is being directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy) and written by Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr. Banks), based on E.L. James' very popular, best-selling novel. The story »

Next thing I know, boom! Carly Rae Jepsen video."

Ethan Hawke Heads Out West For The Magnificent Seven Remake

2 March 2015 12:23 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Variety reports that Boyhood‘s Ethan Hawke has entered the final stages of negotiations for a role in MGM’s remake of The Magnificent Seven. Should he lock down the part, we’ll be in for a full-blown Training Day reunion, as his collaborators on the 2001 cop thriller – Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington – are already on board to direct and star, respectively.

Hawke now stands to appear alongside man of the moment, Chris Pratt, who signed on back in December, and The Equalizer‘s Haley Bennett, who recently snagged the female lead. The matter of who Hawke will be playing is under lock and key, but logic suggests he may be one of the titular seven.

With regards to the story, very little has been revealed so far. We know that the movie will remake John Sturges’ 1960 original, and, like that classic it will concentrate on a small town whose »

'Magnificent Seven' Reteams Ethan Hawke & Denzel Washington

2 March 2015 12:12 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Nearly 14 years after making Training Day with star Denzel Washington and director Antoine Fuqua, Ethan Hawke is reuniting with both the actor and filmmaker in MGM's The Magnificent Seven remake. Variety reports that Ethan Hawke is in final negotiations to join the cast, which also includes Chris Pratt and Haley Bennett. No details were given for Ethan Hawke's character.

The original Western classic The Magnificent Seven starred Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, James Coburn and Horst Buchholz as seven gunmen hired by a Mexican fishing village to protect them from the villainous Calvera (Eli Wallach). Director John Sturges' film was itself a loose remake of Akira Kurosawa's beloved 1954 classic Seven Samurai. This new version will be set in a gold mining town, with Haley Bennett playing a widow who hires seven gunman to protect her town from a gold baron and his thugs. »

Ethan Hawke and Denzel Washington Team for 'Magnificent Seven' Remake

2 March 2015 10:32 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

According to THR, Ethan Hawke is in "final negotiations" to board Fuqua's "The Magnificent Seven" starring Denzel Washington. Hawke and Washington made box office bank back in 2001's "Training Day," which earned both actors Academy Award nominations and Washington an Oscar win for Best Actor. Screenwriters John Lee Hancock ("Saving Mr. Banks") and Nic Pizzolatto (a double WGA winner for HBO's "True Detective") base their script on Kurosawa's 1954 "Seven Samurai" written by Kurosawa, Shinobu Hashimoto and Hideo Oguni. That tale of seven gunslingers banding together to protect a destitute village from blood-seeking bandits was first remade in 1960 as "The Magnificent Seven" directed by John Sturges and starring Steven McQueen. Chris Pratt and Hailey Bennett also boarded the project, which MGM began developing back in 2012 alongside a spate of other titles from its studio library including the forthcoming »

Weinstein Company to Distribute Michael Keaton's McDonald's Movie 'The Founder'

2 March 2015 6:01 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Should-be Oscar winner Michael Keaton may have been robbed of his divine right to win an Oscar for Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), but that doesn't mean he is out of the business. He is still lining projects up, and certainly more than he was a couple of years ago. So, I think, ultimately, everything is going to be all fine. And who knows, maybe his film The Founder will be the one that gets him that golden statue. The film will tell the story of how McDonald's became an empire started by Ray Kroc (Keaton) and The Weinstein Company has stepped in and will distribute. They certainly know how to make an Oscar campaign, and you pair that alongside director John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side, Saving Mr. Banks) and it's hard not to see this as a true contender in the future. Hopefully, that doesn't make it boring, »

Jamie Dornan Isn't Leaving the 'Fifty Shades' Franchise

25 February 2015 1:36 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After less than two weeks in theaters, Fifty Shades of Grey has already grossed $411 million worldwide, which could put it well on its way to being 2015's first $1 billion movie. Of course, the sequel Fifty Shades Darker is already in the works, and, last week, we reported that author E.L. James is demanding to write the screenplay, with the author and studio still reportedly arguing over who should write the script. While we wait to see how this scenario plays out, thankfully, a rumor which could have proved devastating to fans of the franchise has been put to rest. Gossip Cop is reporting that star Jamie Dornan is not planning on leaving the franchise, contrary to recent reports.

The rumor originated from an Australian website, which claimed that Jamie Dornan was backing out of the planned sequels Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed because his wife, actress/musician Amelia Warner, »
