Glow Trailer: Alison Brie & Co. Lay the Smack Down in New Wrestling Comedy

15 May 2017 7:58 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“Are you hiring actors to play wrestlers, or are we the wrestlers?” a confused Alison Brie asks in the first (slightly Nsfw) trailer for Netflix’s upcoming Glow.

The answer? “Yes.”

The series, a fictionalized behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the kitschy television series called Glow (aka Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling), follows Brie’s Ruth, a struggling actress in 1980s Los Angeles whose last-ditch attempt to land a role — any role — brings her to a casting call for “unconventional” women. She soon realizes she’s auditioning for a female version of the highly popular World Wrestling Federation, led by »

On working on educational movies at the start of his career:

It was an offshoot of Encyclopedia Britannica movies. They used to make these 16mm films for students….I did research and I wrote part of them, but I immediately said to myself, “What the fuck am I doing? I don’t even like these movies.”

‘Feud’ Season 2 Dream Cast: 12 Actors We Need to Play Charles, Diana, the Queen and More

1 March 2017 6:44 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Princess Diana

As played by Emily Blunt?

We already know that Emily Blunt can totally kill the Princess Di look, thanks to a Halloween costume she wore in “The Five-Year Engagement.” But Blunt is also an incredibly nuanced actress who deserves a meaty lead role like this — and if the film world isn’t going to give it to her, then we happily welcome her to the world of television.

Prince Charles of Wales

As played by Ben Mendelsohn?

Just look at that side-by-side above. Just look at it. Originally from Australia, the Emmy winner is simply perfect. We did briefly consider Tom Hiddleston, but then we looked at Ben Mendelsohn again. Yeah.

Queen Elizabeth II

As played by Jessica Lange?

The grand dame of Murphy-dom may as well have a literal crown at this point. »

‘Fist Fight’ Director Richie Keen Hired for LAPD Comedy ‘Partners’

16 February 2017 6:24 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

New Line Cinema has hired “Fist Fight” director Richie Keen to helm the long-in-development LAPD action-comedy “Partners.”

Keen is making his feature film directorial debut with New Line’s “Fist Fight,” which is expected to take in about $17 million over the Friday-Monday weekend at 3,185 North American locations. The comedy, starring Charlie Day, Ice Cube, Jillian Bell, and Tracy Morgan, is expected to trail the second weekends of “Lego Batman” and “Fifty Shades Darker.”

Partners” has been in development for several years at New Line with a script by Evan Turner in which an LAPD detective falls for a beautiful woman after a one-night stand and then learns that she is a FBI agent — and his new boss on a high-profile case. The most recent draft was written by Sam Pitman and Adam Cole-Kelly.

There are no producers on board “Partners” yet.

Keen has worked extensively »
