Jane Roscoe, director of the London Film School (Lfs), will leave the school at the end of this term to join the University of the West of England as professor, pro-vice chancellor and executive dean of the faculty of arts, creative industries and education.
Gisli Snaer, currently head of studies, will step up as acting director and Dan Lawson, head of Lfs open, as acting chief operating officer.
The school will launch a recruitment process for a successor director over the summer.
Roscoe served three years at the school, whose previous alumni include Ridley Scott, Michael Mann, Mike Leigh, Duncan Jones and Tak Fujimoto.
Mike Leigh, Lfs chair, said: “There is never an easy time for a school to lose a director but Jane leaves us at a time of our greatest strength and we are very grateful for all that she has
The London Film School (Lfs) has found a new home on London City Island, the latest glass-and-steel Docklands neighbourhood to spring up on the capital’s eastern fringe.
The Lfs is following in the footsteps of the English National Ballet, and its associated school, which announced in May 2015 they would be swapping their Kensington home in West London for a purpose-built venue in the new neighbourhood.
The Lfs, which has been based in Convent Garden in central London for more than 50 years, has been looking for a new location for some time.
In 2015, it was forced to withdraw from a deal with the City of London to relocate to the Barbican Centre in 2017 after a $14m-$17m (£12m-£14m) project to convert a former exhibition space fell through due to a shortfall in private investment.
The Lfs said
It would appear that Miller better get comfortable living in London for a while. He's currently there filming Justice League with director Zack Snyder, and it is now being reported that The Flash will start filming there as well, starting in January of 2017.
There's plenty of reasons to be excited about this film, and the fact that Miller is turning his version of Allen into quite a scene stealer in Justice League, is a big part of that. The actor has made a strong impression on audiences in
In pre-production, Remstar Studios and National Bank of Canada are co- financing the film, which is being produced by Gabriella Tana (Philomena, The Duchess), Maria Theresa Arida (Arbitrage, City Island), Maxime Remillard and Aaron Ryder (Founder, Mud).

Fortitude International is handling foreign rights and sales at the European Film Market. UTA Independent Film Group and Wme are repping Us rights.
Paul (Rudd) and Erasmus (Coogan) are a bickering couple with an extravagant life. Erasmus is a demanding, popular celebrity, and Paul is his more hesitant partner and sidekick. But when Bill, the grandson Erasmus never knew he had, shows up at their high class dinner party with nowhere else to go,
Fast forward a few years and Jude, now played by Asa Butterfield, is a young man with troubles. He and his best friend,( apparently his only friend,) Teddy (Avan Jogia) like to get high and listen to Hard Core Punk Rock. Through the early part of the movie Jude has one
Lanky, unassuming Adam (Evan Todd) is an upstate New York garage mechanic who spends most of his off hours hanging out with longtime best friend, Chris (Parker Young). Alongside mates Ortu (Jon Gabrus) and Nick (Chord Overstreet, “Glee”), they form an inseparable quartet dedicated in classic heterosexual bro fashion to the pursuit of sports, beer, chicks and gay jokes. Only trouble is, Adam (who’s actually dated women in the past) is gay, and figures it’s finally time to break the news to his buddies. After a drunken night’s birthday celebration,
Lewis Black will play Ezra Merkin, a money manager who funneled billions into Madoff’s firm.
“Madoff” will follow the rise and fall of the investment adviser and convicted felon, and the subsequent fallout on his family, associates and investors.
Oscar winner Richard Dreyfuss has already been announced in the title role opposite Blythe Danner in the role of his wife, Ruth.
The project, which is currently in production, will be directed by Raymond De Felitta (“City Island”). “Madoff,” which is inspired by ABC News correspondent Brian Ross’ book “The Madoff Chronicles,” is produced by Lincoln Square productions, in association with ABC Studios. Linda Berman and Joe Pichirallo exec produce.
In a talk with MTV, Miller recounts how he was basically minding his own business on vacation in Costa Rica, when he received a call that would change his life.
The Flash doesn't have a writer or director attached at this time, but it will occupy one of two 2018 release dates (March 23, 2018 or July 27, 2018) that Warner Bros. set in August, with Jason Momoa's Aquaman movie taking the other slot. Ironically, the news comes just one week after The Flash TV series debuted on The CW, starring Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, but the show will have no connection to this burgeoning movie universe.
Ezra Miller is best known for his performances in indie films such as City Island,

In Rio 2, the loveable bird returns with a new flock of voice talent, including singer Bruno Mars, Kristin Chenoweth (You Again), and Andy Garcia (City Island).
Blu (Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network) and Jewel (Anne Hathaway, Les Miserables) return with their three kids, and take a walk on the wild side as they journey through the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit into his new surroundings, he goes beak-to-beak with the villainous Nigel, and meets the most fearsome adversary of all — his father-in-law.
Three years after the original Rio released, this animated film proved to be a huge hit at the box office, grossing more then $490 million worldwide and the DVD and Blu-ray is sure to follow for family viewers who didn’t make it to the theater.

Why the hell anyone thinks kids would be interested in the marital happiness of a bird boy is beyond me. But this is what passes for a children’s movie these days: a 1950s sitcom drawn in pretty tropical CGI colors with a few mostly forgettable songs tossed in. Nerd bird Blu (the voice of Jesse Eisenberg: Now You See Me, The Social Network) was happy when last we saw him, at the end of the stridently mediocre Rio, and clearly that could not stand. So here, in the oh-so-creatively entitled Rio 2,
