Todd Haynes to Direct Du Pont Family Drama ‘Dry Run’ (Exclusive)
Director Todd Haynes will take on one of America’s more famous families in his next film.

The “Carol” helmer is set to direct Participant Media’s “Dry Run,” a movie loosely based on the Du Ponts.

Participant and Mark Ruffalo are producing the pic from a script by Matthew Carnahan. Sources say Ruffalo is also considering starring in the film, but negotiations have yet to begin.

The family at the center of the story is expected to be modeled after the Du Ponts, historically one of America’s richest clans. E.I. du Pont moved to America in 1799 during the French Revolution and made his fortune as a gunpowder manufacturer, later expanding into dynamite, paints, plastics, dyes, and other materials. Some of his employees went on to invent nylon, Kevlar, and Teflon, leading to the family’s large fortune, which still totals in the billions today and is shared by more then 3,500 family members.

Marvel’s ‘The Eternals’ Taps ‘The Rider’ Director Chloe Zhao
After earning critical acclaim for her Sundance darling “The Rider,” director Chloe Zhao looks ready to step up to the big leagues as the up and coming director has been set to direct “The Eternals” for Marvel.

The two groups went on to battle each other throughout history to see which would eventually become the ultimate race.

Marvel sees this as the perfect transition into its next phase along with “Captain Marvel,” which released its recent trailer to huge acclaim earlier this week.

Marvel TV Chief Says He Gets Asked About a ‘Daughters of the Dragon’ Series ‘Daily’
How often does Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb get asked about Netflix doing a “Daughters of the Dragon” or a “Heroes for Hire” team-up series?

“Daily,” Loeb said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “It might be hourly if I had a Twitter account that I had to look at.”

“Daughters of the Dragon” refers to the team of Misty Knight and Colleen Wing, who are played in the Marvel series on Netflix by Simone Missick and Jessica Henwick, respectively. “Heroes for Hire” meanwhile, refers to the team-up of Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Danny Rand (Finn Jones).

France Selects ‘Memoir of War’ as Foreign-Language Oscar Candidate

France has selected Emmanuel Finkiel’s “A Memoir of War” (“La Douleur”) as its official entry for the foreign-language Oscar race.

The French Oscar committee’s choice was announced late Friday amid a dust-up over the ineligibility of Olivier Assayas’ new film, “Non-Fiction,” which did not meet the French National Film Board’s theatrical release criteria for consideration as an Oscar candidate.

“A Memoir of War” is an adaptation of Marguerite Duras’ semi-autobiographical novel “The War: A Memoir.” Music Box Films acquired U.S. rights to the movie in February, shortly after it opened in theaters across France on Jan. 24.

Represented in international markets by TF1 Studio, the film stars Mélanie Thierry, who plays a young Duras and delivers a breakthrough performance. Thierry stars opposite Benoît Magimel, Benjamin Biolay, and Grégoire Leprince-Ringuet.

“A Memoir of War” takes place in June 1944, when France was still under German occupation, and follows Marguerite,

Box Office: ‘House With a Clock in Its Walls’ Ticking to $20 Million-Plus as ‘Fahrenheit 11/9’ Falters
Jack Black’s “The House With a Clock in Its Walls” is ticking to a U.S. opening of $20 million-plus, early estimates showed on Friday.

Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s fantasy film is expected to debut at the higher end of estimates, which were projected to be between $18 million and $20 million at 3,500 North American locations. According to some estimates, the film could earn as much as $25 million in its debut.

The adaptation of John Bellairs’ children’s book is set to earn about $7 million on Friday, including the $840,000 it reeled in from Thursday night previews. The preview gross was comparable to another one of Black’s book-to-movie adaptations, “Goosebumps,” which earned $600,000 in late-night shows in October 2015 on its way to a $23.6 million launch.

“House With a Clock in Its Walls” follows 10-year-old Lewis (Owen Vaccaro), who goes to live with his goofy uncle (played by Black) in an old
