Feud (2017– )
David Greenbaum and Matthew Greenfield have been promoted to presidents of production for film and television, effective immediately. Searchlight Television said it would develop “scripted series, limited series, documentaries and more.”
However, about that timing. Once the Disney/Fox merger is consummated, 21st Century Fox employees will be in a state of wait and see. The future for all Fox content producers — Fox Searchlight, 20th Century Fox Film, 20th Century Fox TV — is unclear.
This also creates more TV production competition inside 21st Century Fox. Searchlight Television won’t fall under the domain of Fox Television Group chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman, whose oversight includes the Fox network,
De Havilland sued FX Networks last year, alleging that the miniseries “Feud” included a damaging portrayal of her. The case was closely watched because it appeared to threaten the ability of filmmakers to portray real events with fictionalized elements.

The 101-year-old actress sued in June, claiming the series Feud: Bette and Joan makes her seem like a vulgar hypocrite and gossip. Defendants asked the court to strike her claims under California's anti-slapp law, which aims to bring an early end to frivolous lawsuits designed to chill protected activity like free speech.
Judge Holly Kendig found Feud is protected speech, but also that de...

Susan Sarandon is swapping Bette Davis’ Old Hollywood glamour for ER scrubs. The “Feud” actress is toplining “Vulture Club,” a film about a veteran nurse desperate to rescue her journalist son after he’s captured by a terrorist group. According to a press release, the film will hit theaters later this year, followed by a release on YouTube Red.
The film’s synopsis reads, “After running into roadblocks with government agencies, [Helen] discovers a clandestine community of journalists and advocates who might be able to help her.” Among them are Charlotte (Edie Falco), another mother of a reporter, and journalist Sam (Matt Bomer, “American Horror Story”).
From Maryam Keshavarz (“Circumstance”), the film co-stars Lola Kirke (“Mozart in the Jungle”), Adepero Oduye (“Pariah”), and Sheila Vand (“Whiskey Tango Foxtrot”). Keshavarz wrote “Vulture Club” with Jonathan Mastro.
The project’s producers include Anna Gerb (“A Most Violent Year”).

YouTube announced the completion of principal photography on the movie, which co-stars Edie Falco (“Nurse Jackie,” “The Sopranos”) and Matt Bomer (“The Normal Heart,” “Magic Mike”).
The Google-owned video service plans a theatrical release for “Vulture Club” in 2018, which would make it eligible for Academy Awards consideration. That will be followed by its release on the YouTube Red subscription service later in the year.
“Vulture Club” was directed by filmmaker Maryam Keshavarz (writer-director of “Circumstance”), co-written with Jonathan Mastro. In the film, a veteran emergency room nurse (Sarandon) takes drastic measures to free her adult son, a war correspondent who’s been captured by a terrorist group. After being stymied by government bureaucracy, she discovers a covert community of journalists and advocates who might be able to help her.
Attorneys for De Havilland and for the cable channel FX appeared at a California Court of Appeal hearing to argue whether the actress’ lawsuit against producers of the miniseries “Feud: Bette and Joan” can move forward. A state superior court judge in August turned down FX’s request to have the suit thrown out. FX appealed, leading to Tuesday’s hearing. FX wants the suit tossed under California’s anti-slapp statute, claiming
The legal fight began in June, when the 101-year-old actress sued FX and Ryan Murphy over her portrayal by Catherine Zeta-Jones in Feud. The star says the series was meant to look like reality, but no one consulted her and the show makes her seem like a vulgar hypocrite and gossip.

Fox boss Gary Newman has claimed that Netflix has opened a “Pandora’s box” by agreeing a £215m deal with Glee creator Ryan Murphy.
The Fox Television Group co-chairman has claimed that the Murphy mega-deal symbolises “a change in the industry” in which cash-rich companies such as Netflix lure premium talent with whopping paychecks.
The exec, who oversees the 20th Century Fox Television studio as well as broadcaster Fox with co-chair Dana Walden, warned that the model will prove to be unsustainable.
