First Official Photos Released For Charlie's Angels with Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska

Thanks to EW, we have our first official look at director Elizabeth Banks’ upcoming reboot of Charlie’s Angels. This include photos featuring the main cast of Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska. As you’ll see they are sporting different outfits and the movie looks like it will have vibrant tone.

Stewart is taking on the role of Sabina Wilson, “the hard-partying, highly skilled wild card”; Balinska is playing Jane Kano, ”the ex-MI6 muscle of the group”; and Scott will play Elena Houghlin, “the MIT-trained scientist who, Banks says, serves as the ‘heart of the movie.’”

When talking about these character in the film and what she was looking to accomplish, Banks explained that she wanted to showcase the teamwork of the characters:

“It was important to me to make a movie about women working together and supporting each other, and not make a movie about

Will Ferrell and Adam McKay End Partnership After Holmes and Watson Bombs

Will Ferrell and Adam McKay End Partnership After Holmes and Watson Bombs
Holmes & Watson was an outright bomb that had audiences walking out in the middle of the movie. Sure, it was awful, but who could have predicted that it would end the longtime working relationship between the movie's star Will Ferrell and its producer Adam McKay?

Having first met in 1995 on the set of Saturday Night Live, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay have enjoyed a long partnership on quite a few movies and TV shows, some of them deemed outright classics. So Holmes and Watson is a sour note to end the legacy on. But the pair have mutually decided to disband their production company Gary Sanchez and its female-centric offshoot Gloria Sanchez.

The dubious duo will now branch out and go their own separate ways, but they remain close friends and there are no hard feelings. Gary Sanchez has enjoyed a 13 year history that includes such comedy hits as Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,

Longtime Partners Will Ferrell, Adam McKay To Go Their Separate Ways

Longtime Partners Will Ferrell, Adam McKay To Go Their Separate Ways
Exclusive: Will Ferrell and Adam McKay have mutually decided to branch out separately and refocus their creative efforts. This will wind down one of the longest creative partner relationships in town. The duo met when they were hired the same day on Saturday Night Live in 1995, and 13 years ago they formed with Chris Henchy the multi-platform comedy generating production company Gary Sanchez, later branching into a female-centric offshoot, Gloria Sanchez. They also teamed on a bunch of comedy classic hit movies, including Anchorman, Talladega Nights, Step Brothers and The Other Guys. McKay directed those films and Ferrell starred in them.

I’m told they remain close friends, but it is expected that their Paramount-based production labels will wind down over time. They will continue to see through their existing projects to completion and develop them with the attached producers. They will work together on their extensive slate of shared projects,

Charlie's Angels Reboot Gets a New Release Date

Charlie's Angels Reboot Gets a New Release Date
Looks like director Elizabeth Banks' reboot of Charlie's Angels starring Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska has been pushed back, if only slightly. Following DC and Warner Bros. decision to move Wonder Woman 1984 from November 2019 to summer 2020, this reboot was at one point planned to fly into your local multiplex on November 1, 2019. That was because the original Drew Barrymore movie hit theaters over the first weekend in November 19 years ago. So, you know, legacy and whatnot. But today we have word that the powers that be behind the scenes have now sent the film over to a November 15, 2019 release date.

The release date shuffle is said to have come to light due to producer James Cameron and director Tim Miller's upcoming direct sequel to Cameron's Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Terminator: Dark Fate landing on November 1st as well. Not only that, but the studio gave the

Aaron Paul, Chelsea Handler and Meg Ryan Topline Sun Valley Film Fest
Aaron Paul is an Idaho boy at heart. The three-time Emmy winning star of “Breaking Bad” and producer and actor on Nickelodeon’s bawdy, subversive animated series “Bojack Horseman” currently makes his home in Los Angeles, but Paul was born in Emmett, a sleepy city about 30 miles outside of Boise, and escapes to the spud state to unwind and visit with family every chance he gets.

“I’ve lived in California for most of my life,” Paul told a packed crowd gathered at the Argyros Performing Arts Center in Ketchum, Idaho on March 15. “I love California. But Hollywood can be crazy. Coming back to Idaho is like a sanctuary for me.”

Paul’s Coffee Talk was one several standout events at the eighth annual Sun Valley Film Festival, which ran March 13-17 in the snowy playground for skiers and snowboarding aficionados. Paul, whom Variety honored at the fest with the Svff 2019 Pioneer Award,

‘Catastrophe’ Bosses on Audience Involvement in the Series Finale Ending, Paying Tribute to Carrie Fisher

  • Variety
Spoiler Alert: Do not read unless you’ve watched the fourth and final season of “Catastrophe,” streaming now on Amazon.

The central relationship on Amazon’s comedic “Catastrophe” began in the first season when Rob (Rob Delaney) got Sharon (Sharon Horgan) pregnant. The duo that barely knew each other was thrust together in a much longer-lasting way than they ever could have expected, with Rob taking up permanent residency overseas to be with Sharon, and the two of them eventually getting married and having another child. So, it was only fitting that the fourth and final season came to a close with Sharon learning she was pregnant again and Rob getting a job offer that could see them relocating to his home turf in America. But what exactly the characters decide to do will go unwritten.

“We didn’t want to answer every question,” Delaney tells Variety. “Hopefully we made

According to THR, Sam Rockwell and Octavia Spencer are set to star as Joe and Lucy, “a couple who, while desperate for cash, agree to take the job of delivering a human heart from New York to Florida in 24 hours. When they realize that their delivery is destined for a black-market buyer who illegally skipped the donor list, they try to reroute the heart to its rightful recipient, only to be hunted down by insane criminals.” Allison Janney will play Spencer’s ex-boss who is one of the criminals after the couple.

The Heart will be written and directed by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, who were the duo that debuted their writing and directing skills with the hit coming-of-age classic The Way, Way Back that also starred Rockwell and Janney.
