Sources tell Variety that Alessandro Nivola is in negotiations to star as Dickey Moltisanti in “The Many Saints of Newark,” the prequel movie to the critically acclaimed and massively successful HBO TV series.

In the show, the character never appears, as he was murdered prior to the drama’s timeline, but is talked about as someone who, along with Soprano’s father and Uncle Junior, helped turn their small gang into the New Jersey crime family that Soprano eventually heads.
Alan Taylor is directing from a script that series creator Chase penned along with Lawrence Konner. Chase is also producing the pic.
The actress/producer made shared it on her Instagram on Tuesday. The full title is: “Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of one Harley Quinn).”

Sony Pictures’ family action-adventure, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, will be released on Dec. 21 in Chinese theaters. Before that, Screen Gems’ critically-acclaimed and sleeper hit of the summer, Searching, will be released on December 14.
Directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman from a screenplay by Phil Lord and Rodney Rothman, “Spider-Verse” introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where anyone can wear the mask. “Searching” is an old-fashioned chase thriller, told in a uniquely modern way via the technology devices we use every day to communicate.
The date for “Spider-Verse” is only one week after the film’s release in multiple international territories from Dec 12. and in North America from Dec. 14. “Searching” began its international rollout from late August.
Over the past 10 years, Hollywood has been hesitant to put much effort behind Christmas movies. There have even been years without a major studio release bearing any holiday themes or connections. The absence of the Christmas movie is often credited to the constraints of release windows and limited marketing opportunities: these titles only have relevancy in November/December and waiting a year between theatrical and home video is no longer an option.

In 2010, a plane crash in Russia killed Poland’s rightwing president, Lech Kaczyński, and plunged the country’s centrist prime minister into a crisis.
That man, Donald Tusk, went on to become president of the European council, a key player in Britain’s struggle to extract itself from the EU. On Sunday, he will chair the critical summit on Brexit. But away from Brussels’ bargaining rooms, Tusk remains locked in a bitter feud with his political rivals in Poland. Agata Popęda and Daniel Boffey join Anushka Asthana to discuss the details.

In the immediate days following the incident, glowing profiles in the likes of USA Today and think pieces over the race-themed film glossed over or entirely omitted mention of the incident. The actor, to his credit, was quick to apologize for using the word, which he uttered during a conversation with “Green Book” costar Mahershala Ali and Film Independent programmer and moderator Elvis Mitchell a little over a week ago.
“I was attempting to make the point that the extreme, dehumanizing ugliness that this word conjures, the hateful attitude behind it, has not disappeared just because white people generally no longer use it as a racist insult,” he wrote in a
