Baby Driver” star Ansel Elgort has been cast in the lead role of Tony in Steven Spielberg’s “West Side Story.” The script is written by Tony Kushner and based on the famous Broadway musical of the same name.

Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy Gets 3-Year Contract Extension

  • Deadline
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, who has been the steward of the Star Wars universe since 2012, has signed a three-year extension that will keep her with the company through 2021.

Kennedy has been the lead figure for the cinematic reinvigoration of the Jedi universe under the corporate banner of The Walt Disney Co, and she would be the first to admit it has been a bumpy endeavor at times. Frequent backlash from dissatisfied fans, mixed reviews from critics and a few apparent retreats on strategic initiatives all have made Kennedy acutely aware of the different rules and expectations that apply to any chronicler of the Skywalker family exploits.

Disney has released four new Star Wars films with global box office revenues now approaching $4.5 billion. Big business, to be sure, but the most recent of those releases, Solo: A Star Wars Story, fell short of the legendary franchise’s usual expectations. Solo was

Toronto Film Review: ‘Hotel Mumbai’

  • Variety
Toronto Film Review: ‘Hotel Mumbai’
Who’s to blame for popularizing reenactments of real-life terrorist attacks? Should we point the finger at “United 93” director Paul Greengrass, or maybe Steven Spielberg’s morally gray “Munich” a year earlier? The entire genre traces back to Gillo Pontecorvo’s game-changing “The Battle of Algiers” in 1966, which challenged our ideas of on-screen realism by posing as a cinema vérité newsreel. Even so, such re-creations didn’t become chic until after 9/11, when action movies in which folks such as Sean Connery and Arnold Schwarzenegger saved the day from terrorist plots gave way to those in which successful attacks became the focus.

There’s little doubt that “Hotel Mumbai” director Anthony Maras has seen all these movies and then some, although what’s not so clear is why he felt compelled to tell the story of the 2008 Mumbai attacks — a series of 12 separate terror incidents that culminated in the bloody siege

Lucasfilm Boss Kathleen Kennedy To Receive Honorary Oscar

Lucasfilm boss and all-around Star Wars connoisseur Kathleen Kennedy is set to become the first woman to receive the coveted Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award.

The board of governors voted Tuesday night to honor Kennedy and her producing partner/real-life husband Frank Marshall at the 10th annual Governors Awards, which are due to take place on Sunday, November 18th. Among those honorees shortlisted for an Oscar are renown publicist Marvin Levy, composer Lalo Schifrin, and actress Cicely Tyson.

Per The Academy, these awards are designed to honor “extraordinary distinction in lifetime achievement, exceptional contributions to the state of motion picture arts and sciences, or for outstanding service to the Academy,” with The Thalberg Award, in particular, being handed out to those creative producers “whose body of work reflects a consistently high quality of motion picture production.”

And you can’t say Kathleen Kennedy isn’t worthy of such praise.

Rebecca Ferguson To Join Director Denis Villeneuve's Dune

Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible - Fallout) is in negotiations to join director Denis Villeneuve's feature film adaptation of Frank Herbert's Dune.

If everything works out and she officially joins, she will star alongside the previously cast Timothee Chalamet (Lady Bird, Call Me By Your Name), who will take on the lead role of Paul Atreides. Ferguson will take on the role of Atreides’ mother, Lady Jessica. Here's the story description:

Set in the distant future, Dune follows Paul Atreides, whose family assumes control of the desert planet Arrakis. As the only producer of a highly valuable resource, jurisdiction over Arrakis is contested among competing noble families. After Paul and his family are betrayed, the story explores themes of politics, religion, and man’s relationship to nature, as Paul leads a rebellion to restore his family’s reign.

Maybe Ferguson will play one of the Atreides family members. I

2018 Academy Governors Awards Include Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall, and Cicely Tyson

On Tuesday night, the Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voted for this year’s Governors Awards. Honorary Oscar winners are publicist Marvin Levy, composer Lalo Schifrin, and actress Cicely Tyson. The Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award will go to producers Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshal, all presented at the Academy’s 10th Annual Governors Awards on Sunday, November 18, at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center.

This was a relatively happy and carefree decision. Still on the table is the fate of the Best Popular Film award, which was the subject of much discussion at the Telluride Film Festival, where the Academy throws an annual party. Lucasfilm president Kennedy, who is no longer on the Board, wondered if it was an idea worth saving.

Toronto Kicks Off With Hot Package: Daniel Craig Stars, Rian Johnson Directs & Scripts Murder Mystery ‘Knives Out’
Exclusive: In a move that will surely swing some of the focus from awards season launches to the acquisitions market at this week’s Toronto International Film Festival, U.S. and foreign distributors will be bidding for Knives Out, a contemporary murder mystery that will star Daniel Craig as a detective assigned to solve the crime, with Rian Johnson directing.

Craig has committed to star in November, while his James Bond 25 film regroups following the exit of director Danny Boyle. Johnson, who wrote the script and is producing with partner Ram Bergman, will make the movie before setting off to direct a new trilogy in the Star Wars universe. Knives Out will be the first film he’ll direct since 2017’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which grossed over $1.3 billion.

The film is best described as a modern day murder mystery in the classic whodunit style, infused with Johnson’s

Film Review: ‘Operation Finale’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Operation Finale’
There’s a certain kind of true-life thriller that benefits from being made in a rough-around-the-edges way. “Operation Finale” is one of those films. It’s a drama about how Israeli agents from the Mossad and Shin Bet, in 1960, learned where Adolf Eichmann, the infamous Nazi war criminal, had disappeared to — Argentina — and went on a hunt to capture him. They extracted him from a suburb of Buenos Aires, where he was hiding in plain sight, and brought him to Israel, where he stood trial for war crimes in the famous 1961 courtroom marathon that was more than just the trial of one man. In many ways, it dragged the full awareness of Nazi atrocities onto the world stage for the first time.

The last thing you want a movie like this one to feel like is a slick Hollywood suspense drama with famous historical names plugged in. “Operation Finale” doesn’t feel like that,

‘Operation Finale’ Review: Oscar Isaac and Nick Kroll Hunt Nazis in Chris Weitz’s Uneven Historical Thriller

‘Operation Finale’ Review: Oscar Isaac and Nick Kroll Hunt Nazis in Chris Weitz’s Uneven Historical Thriller
Arriving hot on the heels of “BlacKkKlansman,” Chris Weitz’s “Operation Finale” is a major addition to American cinema’s oddest new sub-genre: Morally conflicted period pieces in which “Star Wars” actors of various ethnicities are cast as sexy Nazi-hunters. Adam Driver as Flip Zimmerman, a Denver cop who went undercover to infiltrate the Kkk in 1979? No complaints here. Oscar Isaac as Peter Malkin, the Mossad agent who caught Adolf Eichmann hiding in Argentina? Well…

If the willful obliviousness of the Trump era is inevitably going to result in a rash of new movies that investigate anti-semitism, the Holocaust, and/or the broader history of organized hatred, we could use Hollywood’s most relevant talent to help modern viewers appreciate why. “Operation Finale” may not be a particularly good thriller — it’s broader than the Jewish diaspora, and even pitchier than the delivery of my haftorah portion — but Poe

Prehistoric Shark Movie ‘The Meg’ Swims Onscreen After Two Decades

Prehistoric Shark Movie ‘The Meg’ Swims Onscreen After Two Decades
After two decades in the deep waters of development, prehistoric shark actioner “The Meg” is finally ready to swim into the late-summer box office.

Steve Alten, the author of the novel on which the film is based, thought many times over that the project might sink without a ripple. When Alten was 15 in 1975, he became a huge fan of Steven Spielberg’s smash hit “Jaws” — which inspired him to begin exploring the idea of a giant prehistoric shark species somehow surviving in today’s world.

Hollywood has produced plenty of shark movies since “Jaws,” but “Meg” was stuck in development hell for more than two decades. It’s finally being released on Aug. 10, starring Jason Statham, directed by Jon Turteltaub, and written by Dean Georgaris and brothers Jon and Erich Hoeber.

Like “Skyscraper,” which doubled its domestic launch in China, “The Meg” is a part-Chinese production that’s looking to

Timothée Chalamet to Lead Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’

For the first year since 2013, a new Denis Villeneuve film will not hit theaters, but the French Canadian filmmaker has a good excuse. After revisiting one celebrated sci-fi property with Blade Runner 2049, he’s prepping another massive-budget project in the genre with a two-part adaptation of Dune and he’s now found his star, an it’s perhaps an unexpected choice.

Coming off of his Oscar-nominated role in Call Me by Your Name, Timothée Chalamet is set to become a franchise leading man in Villeneuve’s sci-fi epic, Deadline reports. The actor will take the role of Paul Atreides, who Kyle MacLachlan portrayed in David Lynch’s original Frank Herbert adaptation. Eric Roth has scripted this new version, which will be a two-part film, but both parts will be shot separately.

“Eric Roth wrote the first draft and I worked on my part afterwards,” the director recently told La Presse.
