The ‘Finding Neverland’ Non-Equity Tour Is Casting All Roles

Finding Neverland,” the hit 2004 movie starring Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet, has been transformed into a successful stage musical. A new tour—completely different from the currently-running Actors’ Equity Association tour—is casting for all roles. The story follows J.M. Barrie, a Scottish playwright, whose relationship with a family inspires him to create the story of Peter Pan. All roles are for non-equity actors, and currently cast performers in the Aea tour will not be considered for the new tour. Some of the most prominent roles being cast include lead J.M. Barrie, open for a male actor, aged 30–45, with a pop-rock tenor singing voice. Barrie is a humorous, kind hearted man whose whimsical nature and love of fantasy leave him at odds with the world. Another principal role is open for male talent, aged 40–60, to double up as the antagonist, Hook, as well as Charles Frohman, an American impresario who supports Barrie.

Is Dwayne Johnson Hollywood’s Most Bankable Star?

Is Dwayne Johnson Hollywood’s Most Bankable Star?
With less than stellar reviews on top of an already cursed genre, it’s a wonder “Rampage” wasn’t a total flop at the box office.

Well, it’s not a total wonder. After back and forth projections showed “Rampage” wrestling with “A Quiet Place” to see who would come out on top at the box office last weekend, there is one main reason the video game adaptation secured the crown: Dwayne Johnson.

“It’s good old star power at work here,” box office analyst Jeff Bock said. “There’s not that many people in this day and age who can pull this off.”

Did Johnson break the video game adaptation curse? Probably not. Did his sheer star power push “Rampage” to the No. 1 spot at the worldwide box office? It seems likely.

Rampage” bowed with $34.5 million in North America, along with an impressive $114 million overseas for a global total of $148.6 million.

Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’ and Ang Lee’s ‘Gemini Man’ Are Changing the Face of Digital De-Aging

Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’ and Ang Lee’s ‘Gemini Man’ Are Changing the Face of Digital De-Aging
Digital de-aging is Hollywood’s latest tech toy. However, the controversial CG process faces a major test next year with Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” and Ang Lee’s “Gemini Man.”

Robert De Niro and Al Pacino face off as real life mob hitman Frank Sheeran and labor union boss Jimmy Hoffa in Scorsese’s gangster biopic, as Industrial Light & Magic digitally removes decades from their appearances for a series of flashbacks. And elite 50-year-old assassin Will Smith gets stalked by his 23-year-old clone (created by Weta Digital) in Lee’s cutting edge sci-fi thriller.

Obviously, there’s more at stake here than the successful de-aging of Sean Young and Kurt Russell, or Johnny Depp in “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” Robert Downey Jr. in “Captain America: Civil War,” and Michael Douglas in “Ant Man.” Any misstep into the Uncanny Valley could prove fatal. Then again,

Guillermo del Toro’s Antlers Said To Be Inspired By Halloween And The Exorcist

Having captured an Academy Award in the Best Achievement in Directing and Best Motion Picture categories earlier this year for his passion project, The Shape of Water, Guillermo del Toro isn’t interested in spending any time away from the world of cinema.

Recently acquired by Fox Searchlight, Antlers, written by Henry Chaisson and Channel Zero creator Nick Antosca, will see the director serve as a producer. It didn’t take long for del Toro to make his presence felt, either, appointing Black Mass and Crazy Heart director Scott Cooper to helm the supernatural horror.

In a recent sit-down with Collider, Cooper revealed that the project is inspired by a pair of the genre’s staples, John Carpenter’s Halloween and William Friedkin’s The Exorcist.

“Well I’m currently developing Antlers. I’m working with the writers now before I start writing on it, but I’m in the

‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ Official Trailer

A film twenty years in the making finally has a trailer! Terry Gilliam‘s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote has had a slew of misfortune since in production. Scheduling and budget issues, Nato aircraft target practice taking place in the area, flash floods and one of the original lead actors, Jean Rochefort, was injured and suffered a herniated disc halting the filming altogether. An award-winning documentary Lost in La Moncha was made about the problem ridden production.

The original attempt had Johnny Depp as the lead role of Toby but this time around Star Wars actor Adam Driver serves as lead co-starring with Jonathan Pryce. Check out the official trailer below.

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote tells the story of a deluded old man who is convinced he is Don Quixote, and who mistakes Toby, an advertising executive, for his trusty squire, Sancho Panza. The pair embark on a bizarre journey,

"Blasphemy!" It's finally, finally, finally, finally here!! Can you believe it?! The very first international trailer for Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote has arrived out of nowhere, just a week before the Cannes Film Festival line-up announcement. Word is the film will play the festival, but until it's official, this is our first look. Terry Gilliam has been trying to make The Man Who Killed Don Quixote for decades, (in)famously starting production and then shutting down once before in 2000 with Johnny Depp. Now he's finally finished it and it's ready for release this year. Rejoice! The film is about an advertising executive who jumps back & forth in time between 21st century London and 17th century La Mancha, where Don Quixote mistakes him for Sancho Panza.

Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote Tralier

Terry Gilliam has been trying to make The Man Who Killed Don Quixote for so many years the film has become cinema legend before it's even premiered. These kinds of passion projects come with a lot of baggage so I hope Gilliam is able to put what he always wanted on screen.

The first trailer for his film has premiered and it looks like everything a Gilliam fan might expect. It's lavish and carnivalesque and delirious and wonderful.

Synopsis:

An advertising executive jumps back and forth in time between 21st century London and 17th century La Mancha, where Don Quixote mistakes him for Sancho Panza.

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote: trailer for Terry Gilliam's long-awaited film finally released

Trailer emerges 18 years after bedevilled project first went into production – but a legal dispute could still prevent its release

The first trailer for The Man Who Killed Don Quixote has finally been released, 18 years after director Terry Gilliam’s long-gestating film first went into production.

Adapted from Cervantes’ “unfilmable” novel Don Quixote, Gilliam’s film has become one of the most famous examples of “development hell”. The former Monty Python man has attempted to make the film on eight occasions – most notably in 2000, when flash floods, Nato plane flyovers and a prostate infection that struck actor Jean Rochefort (who died last October) disrupted filming of a Johnny Depp-starring effort. That troubled production was the subject of a documentary, Lost in La Mancha.
