‘Got’s Emilia Clarke, ‘Hunger Games’ Sam Claflin To Star In MGM’s ‘Me Before You’

2 September 2014 11:42 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: MGM is negotiating with Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin to star in the Thea Sharrock-directed Me Before You, the adaptation of the Jojo Moyes best-selling novel. Karen Rosenfelt is producing Sharrock’s feature debut. MGM is partnered with New Line and Warner Bros, which has dated the movie for August, 2015 release.

Clarke, whose breakout came playing the mother of dragons Daenerys Targaryen in HBO’s Game Of Thrones, is playing Sarah Conner in Terminator: Genisys, and she is also going to star with Nicholas Hoult in Go Down Together, the Michael Suscy-directed revisionist take on Depression Era outlaws Bonnie and Clyde. Though a newcomer, Claflin’s track record is pretty remarkable: the final three The Hunger Games films, Snow White and The Huntsman and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

There was a lot of competition between young actors for this male lead, and he beat out »

Dench Joins Cumberbatch In "Richard III"

21 August 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Judi Dench is set to play Cecily, Duchess of York opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role of The BBC's upcoming TV adaptation of Shakespeare's "Richard III".

The telemovie will be part of the second series of "The Hollow Crown," following on from 2012's successful four telemovie adaptations of Shakespeare's historical plays. That series, starring the likes of Jeremy Irons, Tom Hiddleston and Ben Whishaw, adapted "Richard II," "Henry IV Part 1," "Henry IV Part 2" and "Henry V".

"The Hollow Crown: The Wars of the Roses" will adapt the other famed historical tetralogy of Shakespeare - the three parts of "Henry VI" and "Richard III". One difference this time out is that the telemovies will be trilogy with "Henry VI" being shrunk from a three-part play into a two-part telemovie.

Tom Sturridge ("On the Road," "The Boat That Rocked") has been cast as Henry VI in both parts of that production. »

Emmy Predictions: Movies and Miniseries Contenders Chase ‘Normal Heart,’ ‘Fargo’

9 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Two white-hot productions — HBO’s “The Normal Heart” and FX’s “Fargo” — explain why the Television Academy opted this year to break up movies and miniseries into separate Emmy categories once again.

The TV Acad combined the top longform categories in 2011 when miniseries were extremely rare creatures on TV. But just three years later, whether they’re called “event series” or “limited series,” multi-part longform productions are busting out all over the place, even on the broadcast nets.

HBO’s bold move to field its eight-hour romp in the Louisiana swamps, “True Detective,” as a drama series cleared the way for “Fargo” to be the undisputed frontrunner in the miniseries heat. And HBO’s “Normal Heart” is the one to catch in the movie race.

Indeed, the real footraces in the longform category this year are unfolding in the acting categories, which remain a combo plate of movies and minis. »

Allison Janney, Orange Is The New Black And Fargo Among Winners At 2014 Critics’ Choice Television Awards

20 June 2014 6:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The first major awards ceremony honoring this past year’s accomplishments on the small screen took place last night as Cedric the Entertainer hosted the 2014 Critics’ Choice Television Awards from the Beverly Hilton. I’ve always preferred the Critics’ Choice Awards to the Emmys, just because my views tend to line up more with the members of the Broadcast Television Journalists Association. This year was no different, as a number of highly deserving actors, actresses and shows were honored.

Allison Janney was the clear winner last night, taking home two Critics’ Choice TV Awards. The actress won Best Guest Performer in a Drama Series for her devastating work on Showtime’s Masters of Sex and also tied with Orange is the New Black actress Kate Mulgrew for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her performance as the title character on CBS’s Mom.

FX’s Fargo also had a great night, »

19 June 2014 7:35 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Some of the biggest shows on television went head to head. Here's who came out on top.

All the hottest names in TV turned out for the 2014 Critics Choice Television Awards on June 19, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Cedric the Entertainer hosted the gala event presented by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, and the night was really a battle between two cable channels.

Premiere pay-cable network HBO had a whopping 18 nominations, but in a show of strength for a smaller cable channel, FX topped that with 19. Meanwhile, the big contenders for individual shows were the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory, the CBS drama The Good Wife, FX's crime dramedy Fargo, Showtime's drama series Masters Of Sex and HBO's The Normal Heart, all getting five noms each.

Also, Netflix struck a blow against the traditional television hierarchy with their original series Orange Is The New Black competing in several key categories.

Hey Good Lookin’: Tom Hiddleston to Play Hank Williams in ‘I Saw The Light’

13 June 2014 9:27 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The tale of country legend Hank Williams is a cruel and heart wrenching little one. Thrust into stardom at age 14, Hank took Montgomery, Alabama by storm. But like all good teen idols, Hank took up drinking quickly, married his manager (sounds scandalous but they were actually the same age), released a bevy of hits, joined up with the Grand Ole Opry, sank deeper and deeper into the throes of alcoholism, and then added crippling prescription painkiller addiction on top of that when he started suffering from back problems. Williams shined bright with talent, known for songs like “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” “Hey Good Lookin’” and “I Saw The Light,” But any further success was cut short when Williams died at the age of 29 from drug and alcohol fueled heart failure. While hearing I Saw The Light probably now best conjures up images of Chapman beating the shit out of Pennsatucky in »

Should Brit Star Tom Hiddleston Take on Country Icon Hank Williams?

12 June 2014 5:34 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As high as I am on Tom Hiddleston, the idea of him playing all-American country music icon Hank Williams gives me pause. Somehow this role should go to an American actor. This casting feels like a foreign sales decision. Hiddleston, who is bankable thanks to playing Loki in two Thor films and "The Avengers," is set to play Williams in writer-director Marc Abraham's "I Saw the Light," based on Colin Escott’s biography.  Via Sony Atv, the biopic has secured rights to the Williams music catalogue including such hits as “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” “Hey Good Lookin’” and “Your Cheatin’ Heart.” Not that Hiddleston isn't a gifted actor and singer. After supporting roles in Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" and Steven Spielberg's "War Horse," Hiddleston starred opposite Rachel Weisz in Terence Davies' drama "Deep Blue Sea," in the TV series "The Hollow Crown, »

First Look: Maggie Gyllenhaal in BBC’s ‘The Honourable Woman’

10 June 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The BBC have revealed the first image from the new eight-part political thriller The Honourable Woman, which will see film actress Maggie Gyllenhaal make the move to the smaller screen. Set against the backdrop of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, this looks to be a very powerful new drama for the BBC and with Gyllenhaal leading the impressive cast, it seems everyone involved is very excited by this project.

Polly Hill, Head of Independent Drama for the BBC, has said:

Maggie Gyllenhaal makes a perfect Nessa Stein. Hugo Blick has created a complex character in Nessa, with an extraordinary story. The combination of Hugo’s stunning scripts and Maggie Gyllenhaal in the lead role is an exciting and powerful combination.”

The cast also includes Lindsay Duncan (The Hollow Crown), Andrew Buchan (Broadchurch), Katherine Parkinson (The It Crowd), Janet McTeer (The White Queen), Tobias Menzies (Game Of Thrones) and many more.

Dame Judi Dench to join Benedict Cumberbatch in Richard III?

2 June 2014 4:12 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Dame Judi Dench may be joining Benedict Cumberbatch in the BBC's adaptation of Richard III this autumn, after he asked her to star alongside him.

According to The Daily Telegraph, Dench was answering audience questions at the Hay Festival this weekend when she received one from Cumberbatch, who was sitting in the front row.

Cumberbatch asked the actress: "Would you like to be in Richard III with me?" After a theatrical pause, Dench answered: "Yeah."

The Sherlock actor has apparently been attempting to get Dench to co-star with him for months. She is rumoured to be playing the role of Queen Margaret in the BBC production.

The pair then performed a reading from Twelfth Night to the sold-out crowd in attendance at Dench's talk.

Richard III will conclude the BBC's series of Shakespeare history plays which began in 2012, and is being created by the makers of The Hollow Crown. »

Sophie Okonedo will play Queen Margaret in the BBC trilogy of films, The Hollow Crown - Queen Margaret being the queen who curses co-star Benedict Cumberbatch’s Richard III.
