The film begins shooting on March 22 in New York.

John David Washington to Star in Christopher Nolan’s Next Film (Exclusive)
Christopher Nolan has tapped “BlacKkKlansman’sJohn David Washington to star in his next “event film,” sources tell Variety.

Nolan recently finished the script for the movie and Warner Bros. quickly dated it for July 18, 2020 — a slot the studio often reserves for the director, most recently with “Dunkirk.”

The gig has become one of the more highly coveted in town, even though most of the industry has been kept in the dark about who has been meeting for the role and what the movie is even about.

Although rumors are swirling that the film is a romantic thriller in the vein of “North by Northwest,” sources have denied those claims, keeping plot details under lock and key. One insider described the pic as a massive, innovative, action blockbuster, which will again be shown in Imax.

Nolan is also producing along with his partner Emma Thomas. Production is set to commence later this year.

James Corden to host 2019 Tony Awards on June 9

James Corden to host 2019 Tony Awards on June 9
Three years after making his Emmy-winning debut as the host of the Tony Awards, James Corden is returning to preside over these top theater honors. The June 9 ceremony from Radio City Music Hall will air live on CBS. These awards celebrate the best of the 2018/2019 theater season. Corden won a Tony in 2012 for his comic turn in the play “One Man, Two Guvnors.”

In 2016, Corden rode the “Hamilton” wave to the highest ratings for this awards show in a decade. This season doesn’t boast such a super-sized hit. However, Corden’s fame has grown since then and he could use his late night talker to tout the Tonys telecast.

After his success with the Tonys in 2016, CBS tapped Corden to host the Grammys in 2017 and 2018. That gig is one of of the reasons why he passed on returning to emcee the Tony Awards in those years. As he told us last year,

Paramount Reveals Official Title For 'Terminator 6'

Paramount Reveals Official Title For 'Terminator 6'
This summer, Terminator 2: Judgment Day will celebrate its 28th anniversary, but in all the years since its release, the franchise still hasn’t given us another another installment that’s been particularly worth watching. And even though most fans are approaching the next Terminator film with a fair amount of skepticism, the involvement of James Cameron as producer does bode well for it.

Since filming wrapped last November, we haven’t seen any footage from the project and though we have witnessed a little behind-the-scenes content, we’re still pretty in the dark when it comes to what we can expect. One thing we do know now, however, is the official title, as Paramount has revealed that it’ll be called Terminator: Dark Fate. Without having any plot details to dig into and no explanation from the studio, we’re unsure of what the meaning behind the moniker may be,

SXSW Film Review: ‘Come as You Are’

The rare remake that’s actually a slight improvement on its predecessor, Richard Wong’s “Come as You Are” translates Geoffrey Enthoven’s 2011 Belgian “Hasta la Vista” to middle America. Other changes are less substantial, but this seriocomedy has a less formulaic feel than the original while remaining a crowd-pleasing buddy pic-caper with a soft-pedaled minority empowerment theme. Reception in real-world disabled communities may be somewhat muted by the casting of able-bodied actors in the lead roles. Nonetheless, it’s hard to entirely resist this loosely fact-inspired tale of three physically challenged men road-tripping to Montreal in order to lose their virginity at a “special needs” bordello.

Sticking close in outline to the earlier screenplay by Mariano VanHoof and Pierre de Clercq, Erik Linthorst’s script centers on a trio of protagonists all stuck living with their parents in adulthood. Paraplegic Scotty, whose congenital defect makes him particularly dependent on

SXSW Film Review: ‘Strange Negotiations’

In a era when some mainstream entertainers have transitioned to targeting faith-based audiences, David Bazan is moving in the other direction.

The gifted songwriter’s ersatz band Pedro the Lion was perhaps the most successful Christian indie rock act of its time, and the first to significantly cross over to secular fans. Then he ditched that persona (and lost much of his fanbase), not in an attempt to “sell out,” but rather amid public acknowledgement that he’d suffered a serious loss of religious faith.

Brandon Vedder’s “Strange Negotiations” is a music documentary whose interest goes beyond the usual realms of performance footage and personality, since Bazan is so forthcoming about the “breakup with God” that continues to impact his art, career and life. Particularly with U.S. evangelicals in greater political ascendance than ever before, Bazan’s personal issues lend a larger philosophical depth to this insightful Diy-style portrait.

Donald Trump announced this week that he donates his presidential salary to various government agencies, but Steven Colbert isn’t buying it, or rather, he isn’t buying the way the president announced it.

On Tuesday, Trump tweeted: “While the press doesn’t like writing about it, nor do I need them to, I donate my yearly Presidential salary of $400,000.00 to different agencies throughout the year, this to Homeland Security. If I didn’t do it there would be hell to pay from the Fake News Media!” The tweet included a photo of a $100,000 check made out to the Department of Homeland Security.

Disney Finally Closes Its $71.3 Billion Acquisition of 21st Century Fox

At long last, Disney has completed its $71.3 billion acquisition of 21st Century Fox’s film and TV assets.

With the deal wrapped up, Disney will take over ownership of 20th Century Fox film and TV studio, cable networks FX, Fxx and National Geographic, and certain cable and international television assets. Disney also acquires Fox’s 30 percent stake in Hulu, giving it majority control.

SXSW Film Review: ‘Bluebird’

As affectionate as a love letter but as substantial as an infomercial, Brian Loschiavo’s “Bluebird” may be of most interest to casual and/or newly converted country music fans who have occasionally wondered about the songwriters behind the songs. There’s a better than even-money chance that anyone who’s a loyal and longtime aficionado of the musical genre already has at least a nodding acquaintance with the history and significance of The Bluebird Café, the intimate Nashville venue often cited as a launching pad for both platinum-selling superstars and behind-the-scenes tunesmiths. On the other hand, even many of those individuals could be entertained by what amounts to a backstage tour.

Director-editor Loschiavo capably balances the household names and unsung heroes in the cavalcade of interviewees who, with degrees of enthusiasm ranging from nostalgic to reverential, tell the story of an improbable landmark in an unlikely setting.
