Bregman, who actor Al Pacino once described in a Hollywood Reporter interview as "my guy," also produced Carlito's Way, Serpico and Sea of Love with the actor, and was slated to produce David Ayer's upcoming adaptation of Scarface.
Pacino has often credited the producer with offering him crucial early career guidance. "I'm missing a lot not having him around anymore," Pacino said in a 2014 ...
The filmmaker has also been ordered to pay Branco’s Alfama Films €10,000 in fees. He previously won a case that allowed him to screen “Don Quixote” at Cannes, though the victory was short-lived. ”The ruling means that the rights to the film belong to Alfama. Any exploitation of the film up until now has been completely illegal and without the authorisation of Alfama,” Branco told Screen Daily.
In the Chinese box office record books, “Fallen Kingdom” has now entered the top ten highest opening weekends for that market, sitting in the No. 8 spot. It ranks fourth among opening weekends for import films, sitting behind “The Fate of the Furious,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” and “Transformers: The Last Knight.”
Though Hardwick on Friday vehemently denied the sexual assault accusation, he mostly sidestepped her other claims beyond saying, “I’m devastated to read that she is now accusing me of conduct that did not occur.”
But major companies that work with Hardwick were quick to respond and publicly hit the pause button on their professional relationship.
Here they are (so far):
“If I had to base my career on what white men wanted I would be very unsuccessful,” said Kaling in an interview with Yahoo. “So there is obviously an audience out there who want to watch things like [Ocean’s 8], what I work on, what Sarah [Paulson] works on.”
The Peacock network on Saturday released a statement in light of allegations of abuse leveled against Hardwick by ex-girlfriend Chloe Dykstra. It reads as follows:
These allegations about Chris Hardwick took us by surprise as we have had a positive working relationship with him. However, we take allegations of misconduct very seriously. Production on The Wall does not begin until September, and in the meantime we are continuing to assess the situation and will take appropriate action based on the outcome.
Yet who would have guessed that “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?,” Morgan Neville’s transporting documentary about Fred Rogers and his quirky oasis of children’s television, would also turn out to be a tale for our time? Audiences lining up to see it are probably having the same experience I did: You walk in thinking that you
Starting this fall, Fox outlets like Fox Broadcasting, FX, Nat Geo and their digital counterparts will begin running inspirational videos that tell stories about people who have overcome adversity. These tales won’t take part over the course of 22 episodes, but will instead show up during advertising time, and Fox hopes to get marketers to sponsor them. Pharamaceutical companies, sports advertisers, insurance marketers and wellness firms are viewed as potential candidates
While Set It Up writer Katie Silberman and producer Juliet Berman met as Hollywood assistants, they insist they worked for wonderful bosses. But hearing horror stories of other assistants grappling with the unreasonable demands of their horrible bosses inspired them to turn those tales into the romantic comedy, Set It Up, now streaming on Netflix.
In the film, Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell play overworked assistants to a powerful sports reporter (Lucy Liu) and investment executive (Taye Diggs), respectively. Frustrated by having to tend to their bosses needs around the clock, they conspire ...
The film, which is nominated for Edinburgh’s prestigious Michael Powell Award in the Best of British category, follows a lonely young introvert, played by Laurie Calvert, who has a crush on a dancer, but can’t pluck up the courage to talk to her. His eccentric neighbor, played by Zane, offers to help him by using an experimental form of therapy called lucid dreaming. This helps the boy to be more daring, but the
In the extremely short video, Roberts pops into the frame dressed as Madison and basically makes an “Ahs” meme reality by saying “Surprise, bitch. Bet you thought you’d seen the last of me.” The video is set to auto-repeat which just feels so appropriate considering how apparently impossible it is to keep Madison dead.
While almost all of Travolta’s films in the last 30 years have been either in extremely limited release or with screen counts of 2,500 or more, this counts as the worst opening for the actor since the 1991 film “Shout,” which opened to $1.61 million on 968 screens and was considered one of the star’s biggest pre-“Pulp Fiction” flops.
But “Gotti” hasn’t been able to find similar success this weekend, posting a per-screen average of just $3,320. Analysts told TheWrap prior to this weekend that “Gotti” needed to make around $3 million — or a $6,000 PSA — to be considered a successful launch.
The monster movie grossed an estimated $112 million in the Middle Kingdom between Friday and Sunday. It played 175,000 screenings per day according to local data provider Ent Group, and claimed an astonishing 86% share of revenue on Friday. The score includes $10 million earned from 520 IMAX venues.
The film’s weekend score compares with $67 million earned in the official three-day opening of its predecessor “Jurassic World,” but which then added a further $30 million to its first weekend total through two days of previews. The RMB715 million local currency figure is the fourth highest ever achieved in China by an imported film in a three-day opening, behind “The Fate of the Furious” (Rmb 1.3 billion), “Avengers: Infinity War” (Rmb 1.2 billion) and “Transformers: The Last Knight” (Rmb 795 million).
This weekend, a French court ruled that Gilliam will have to pay €10,000 to Paulo Branco, the former producer on the movie who sued the “Monty Python” co-creator for breach of contract. Branco also sought an injunction to prevent “Don Quixote” from being released and from premiering at the Cannes Film Festival, though he was denied that request. Gilliam will therefore be able to distribute the film.
Gilliam argued that the contract was voided when Branco and his company, Alfama Films, failed to provide funding for the film’s production, giving him the right to find other producers for the project.

MacFarlane responded to a tweet from CNN’s Brian Stelter, who noted that this past week, Carlson told viewers on his show to not trust rival networks.
“If you’re looking to understand what’s actually happening in this country, always assume the opposite of whatever they’re telling you on the big news stations,” Carlson said.
“In other words, don’t think critically, don’t consult multiple news sources, and in general, don’t use your brain,” replied MacFarlane. “Just blindly obey Fox News. This is fringe s–t, and it’s business like this that makes me embarrassed to work for this company.”

On her Netflix show “The Break With Michelle Wolf,” the comedian joked that Trump’s recent foreign policy moves are pretty confusing. Trump insulted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Twitter after a chilly G7 summit, in which longtime U.S. allies were frustrated with Trump over actions like trade tariffs and frequent demands to allow Russia back into the group.
Right after that, Trump met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in Singapore, where he said Kim agreed to denuclearization. The summit didn’t actually set any firm rules for that process, however, and skipped any discussion of Kim’s human rights abuses against the people of his country.

Born in New York City in 1926, Bregman entered the entertainment industry first as a nightclub agent before moving into personal management. As a manager, his clients would eventually include at various times luminaries like Alan Alda, Woody Allen, and Barbra Streisand among others.
Bregman’s greatest impact on Hollywood was the result of his relationship with Al Pacino. Bregman discovered Pacino performing in an Off Broadway play in the 1960s, and became his manager. He helped Pacino land his first starring film role in the 1971 drama “The Panic in Needle Park.” It was that role which brought Pacino to the attention of Francis Ford Coppola, leading to Pacino’s breakthrough as Michael Corleone in “The Godfather.”
