Girl in the Spider's Web Targets Claire Foy as Lisbeth Salander

Girl in the Spider's Web Targets Claire Foy as Lisbeth Salander
It seems Sony Pictures may have found their new Lisbeth Salander in The Crown star Claire Foy, despite reports from March that both Scarlet Johansson and Natalie Portman were up for the role. Claire Foy is reportedly in early talks, but she may not be set quite yet. Insiders claim that, while Claire Foy has in fact been offered the role, there are still scheduling issues that need to be worked out before she can sign on.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that this coveted role went down to both Claire Foy and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story star Felicity Jones. It's possible that Felicity Jones may be offered the role if these scheduling conflicts can't be worked out, but that has yet to be confirmed. Claire Foy has also been fielding interest to star in Universal's biopic First Man, starring Ryan Gosling as American astronaut Neil Armstrong, although it

‘Axolotl Overkill’ Is A Stylish, Striking Flame Of Youth In Revolt [Sundance Review]

24-year-old German filmmaker Helene Hegemann might be a little obsessed with her own life, the blissed-out teenage years of drugs, sex, night club escapades, strung-out mornings and all forms of her cathartic excess. Yet the writer/director is also a little fixated on magical beasts; a unicorn here, some llamas there, a cute little waddling penguin appearing out of nowhere and of course, the strange little axolotl.

The central metaphor of “Axolotl Overkill” is a little too on the nose, or perhaps too on the tail of the weird, translucent-looking creature.

Sundance Film Review: ‘Beatriz at Dinner’

Sundance Film Review: ‘Beatriz at Dinner’
I’ve been coming to the Sundance Film Festival since 1995, and if you asked me to pick the most audacious film I’ve ever seen here, it would probably be “Chuck & Buck,” the thrillingly twisted — but humane! — arrested-development stalker love story written by Mike White and directed by Miguel Arteta. (White also starred in it.) It played here in 2000, and though other films grabbed bigger headlines, it was enough of a landmark that White and Arteta recognized what they’d brought out in each other and decided to team up again. Two years later, they were back with “The Good Girl,” a solid but much safer comedy (it starred Jennifer Aniston). Now, after 15 years, they’ve reunited for “Beatriz at Dinner,” a small-scale but elegantly deft squirmfest that features a luminous performance by Salma Hayek. It also has the distinction of being the first dramatic comedy that’s an explicit

Dock Ellis Biopic in Development With David Permut (Exclusive)

Dock Ellis Biopic in Development With David Permut (Exclusive)
Hacksaw Ridge” producer David Permut is developing a movie about the life of the late Major League Baseball pitcher Dock Ellis.

Permut has acquired Joey Poach’s spec script “Dock” through his Permut Presentations company and brought on board Dock Ellis’ son, Dock Ellis III, as a consultant.

Ellis played in the major leagues for 12 years, nine with the Pittsburgh Pirates, and was an outspoken advocate for African-American players, continuing Jackie Robinson’s fight for racial equality in Major League Baseball. He gained notoriety after he retired by disclosing that he had pitched a no-hitter in 1970 while high on LSD.

In 1973, pictures circulated of Ellis wearing hair curlers during pre-game warmups, which led to a magazine story about his hairstyles.

Ellis played on World Series champion teams in 1971 with the Pirates and in 1976 with the New York Yankees. He retired in 1979 and subsequently admitted that he had never pitched a

Gotham, Ep. 2.04, “Strike Force”

Gotham, Season 2, Episode 4, “Strike Force

Written by Danny Cannon

Directed by Tj Scott

Airs Mondays at 8pm (Et) on Fox

Gotham enters a new arc as Theo Galavan begins to implement phase two of his plan to seize control of the City. The first part of his plan was to bestow chaos by unleashing the Maniax and his next move involves making himself appear as a hero to win the hearts and minds of the citizens. The extent of this plan was accomplished with the surprising twist in last week’s “The Last Laugh”, which also disposed of one of the show’s most interesting villains. This turn has reaped rewards for Galavan, as well as created a new shift in the direction of the season.

Galavan’s staged heroism has won him a candidacy for the Mayor’s office which will give passage for the next phase of his evil plan.
