Change of producers for Guy Pearce’s ‘Poor Boy’

Guy Pearce in ‘Jack Irish.’

Aquarius FilmsAngie Fielder and Polly Staniford have taken over as the producers of Guy Pearce’s directorial debut Poor Boy, in which he will also star.

When Screen Australia announced funding for the project in March Wildheart Films’ Al Clark and Andrena Finlay were listed as the producers.

Written by Matt Cameron and based on his play of the same name, the paranormal mystery-drama follows a boy who announces to his family on his seventh birthday that he is a stranger named Danny – a grown man who died seven years earlier.

Clark, who is still attached as an executive producer, tells If his decision to withdraw as producer was “prompted by a fundamental difference of perception. My involvement has changed to reflect this.”

Staniford tells If: “Angie and I are now producing and Al is still involved as an Ep. Happy to chat further

Emmy episode analysis: Michael Stuhlbarg (‘The Looming Tower’) deals with the aftermath of tragedy on ‘9/11’
Michael Stuhlbarg’s strong year isn’t over yet. Late in 2017 he appeared in three films that earned Oscar nominations for Best Picture: “Call Me by Your Name,” “The Post” and the ultimate winner “The Shape of Water.” Despite being a triple threat, Stuhlbarg wasn’t nominated for an Oscar himself, but now he’s nominated at the Emmys for Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actor for the Hulu miniseries “The Looming Tower.” Stuhlbarg plays Richard Clarke, the real-life former chief counter-terrorism advisor on the National Security Council. He has submitted the final installment of the series, “9/11,” to Emmy voters for consideration.

The episode begins with Clarke giving his opening statement before the 9/11 Commission in which he apologized to the families of 9/11 victims and famously proclaimed, “Your government failed you.” We then flash back to Clarke at the White House, refusing to leave even though the building is being evacuated in

‘Rake’ star Damien Garvey reflects on the end of the franchise

Damien Garvey and Mark Mitchinson in ‘Rake’.

As a regular in the ABC’s Rake since the second series, Damien Garvey has a ready explanation as to why the fifth series is the last.

“This series plays more like a documentary than a satire,” says Garvey, who plays Cal McGregor, the resilient former government minister, jailbird and now blow-hard TV show host.

“The scripts were written 12 or 15 months ago, depicting the most ridiculous scenes. Now you turn on the TV and what you see is very similar. You can’t make up enough stories like that about politics anymore.”

In Sunday night’s episode Cal was offered a vacant seat in the House and a ministerial portfolio while his ambitious wife Jane (Sonia Todd) has her eyes on the seat.

Garvey is a huge admirer of Richard Roxburgh – “he works very hard on the show” – and co-creator Peter Duncan and

Netflix Allegedly Bars ‘The Innocents’ Cast From Using The Term ‘Binge-Watching’

Netflix and the term ‘binge-watching’ have become virtually inextricable, but it turns out the streaming giant may not be too excited about that. While doing promo for his new Netflix original The Innocents, Guy Pearce told The Empire Film Podcast that “we (presumably meaning himself and other Innocents cast members) were strictly sort of instructed beforehand not to talk about ‘binge-watching.’”

“I don’t think Netflix likes the term ‘binge,’” Pearce added. Netflix has not yet provided a comment to confirm or deny Pearce's statements.

While Netflix's alleged new stance is a completely understandable one, given how the word “binge” is also commonly associated with unhealthy activities, it’s a bit of an odd position for Netflix to take. Or, rather, it’s an odd stance for the company to take now, because Netflix has used the term widely in its marketing — particularly on Twitter, and as recently as July.

Netflix Prohibits Actors From Talking About ‘Binge-Watching’ During Interviews, Says Guy Pearce

Ever since Netflix entered the original television game with the debut of “House of Cards” in February 2013, the term “binge-watching” has become the default word to describe the act of streaming multiple episodes of a series in a short period of time. The streaming giant singlehandedly popularized the act of binge-watching, but it turns out Netflix is not too fond of the word. Guy Pearce revealed on the Empire Film Podcast he was prohibited by Netflix to talk about binge-watching in interviews promoting his Netflix series “The Innocents.”

“I don’t think Netflix likes the term ‘binge,'” Pearce said when asked by Empire if viewers would binge-watch “The Innocents.” “When we did the promotion for [‘The Innocents’] in the [United States], we were strictly sort of instructed beforehand not to talk about ‘binge-watching.'”

While the term “binge-watching” refers specifically to television, the word has proven troublesome with some people since

Pepper Potts Has Killed More Marvel Cinematic Universe Villains Than Iron Man

For a character so rarely seen in the heat of battle, Pepper Potts sure has a lot of blood on her hands. While the Iron Man co-star and current CEO of Stark Industries has usually left the fighting to her partner Tony, fans on Reddit have pointed out that Gwyneth Paltrow’s character has been the one to deliver the final killing blow to Stark’s enemies on more than one occasion.

The observation arose in a thread pointing out how Spider-Man and the Wasp are the only titular heroes of the McU who are still yet to make their first kill (as far as we know). If that’s the case, then Peter and Hope have some catching up to do, because Pepper’s personal body count is on at least two so far.

’The Innocents’ Cast and Crew Discuss That Berserk Ending and Give Hope for Season 2

’The Innocents’ Cast and Crew Discuss That Berserk Ending and Give Hope for Season 2
[Editor’s Note: The following article contains spoilers from Season 1 of “The Innocents,” including the finale.]

The Innocents,” Netflix’s British/Norwegian series that puts a supernatural twist on the star-crossed romance, concluded on quite the cliffhanger. After eight episodes in which young lovers June (Sorcha Groundsell) and Harry (Percelle Ascott) ran away from home only to discover she’s a shapeshifter, their adventures came to a violent, disastrous end.

In the action-packed episode, after secrets are revealed and sacrifices are made, two people end up dead, one person is in police custody, two people are rendered comatose, and June is mortally wounded. IndieWire spoke to the cast and crew of the series about the finale and whether or not Season 2 is in the cards. While creators Hania Elkington and Simon Duric couldn’t confirm the series will continue, their caginess was perhaps the best indicator that a second season seems likely.

‘Memento’ Was Partially Spoiled for Guy Pearce Before He’d Even Read the Script

‘Memento’ Was Partially Spoiled for Guy Pearce Before He’d Even Read the Script
By now we all know the big reveal at the end of “Memento,” as well as its unique structural conceit; if you don’t, perhaps it’s best not to read on. It turns out that for Guy Pearce, the star of Christopher Nolan’s breakout drama, the twist was ruined before he’d even picked up the script: “When he sent it to me, my agent had written at the bottom of the letter, ‘By the way, it all goes backwards,’” the actor told Entertainment Weekly in a recent interview. “So I was prepared to be confused by it to some degree.”

“What was interesting is that in a normal film, you’re aware of where you’ve been 10 scenes before and how that affects where you might be now and where you’re going,” Pearce added. “This character clearly doesn’t remember any of that. So really he
