Martin Scorsese's Next Movie Is Heading To Netflix
Huffington Post - 4 days
Netflix has acquired its most prestigious title yet: a Martin Scorsese movie.  “The Irishman,” a $100 million gangster flick starring Robert De Niro, was initially set up at Paramount, which released Scorsese’s previous film, “Silence.” But with 12-year Paramount chief Brad Grey leaving the studio after a financially spotty 2016, Scorsese and his team opted to package the movie elsewhere, according to IndieWire. “Scorsese’s movie is a risky deal, and Paramount is not in the position to take risks,” a source reportedly told IndieWire. “This way, he can make the project he wants.” In other words, Scorsese’s team wants to work somewhere that executives won’t panic about box-office numbers. That’s presumably a response to “Silence,” which cost $46 million but earned only $7.1 million domestically after proving difficult to market to mainstream moviegoers. Given Scorsese’s status as one of the world’s most famous directors, this news represents a massive shift in distribution tre ...

Praise 'The Jesus': A 'Big Lebowski' Spinoff Is Reportedly In The Works
Huffington Post - 6 months
Dude. A “Big Lebowski” spinoff might be on its way.  John Turturro, who played Jesus Quintana ― aka “the Jesus” ― in the Coen brothers’ 1998 film, is reportedly writing and starring in a “Lebwoski” spin-off centered around his character, according to film news site Birth.Movies.Death. Sources tell the website that Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou and Susan Sarandon are attached to Turturro’s new project, reportedly called “Going Places.” The spin-off is based on the 1974 French film “Les Valseuses.” It will reportedly revolve around the criminal activity and love lives of two thieves (Cannavale and Turturro). Tautou will play the love interest, while Sarandon is set to play a criminal.  Variety reports that the project is currently filming in New York. It is unclear whether the Coen brothers are involved in the movie, or even whether they gave Turturro their blessing to continue the “Lebowski” legacy.  While teaching a class at an Italian film festival in 2014, Turturro expre ...

Rose Byrne Talks About The Time TSA Confiscated Her Breast Milk
Huffington Post - 9 months
Rose Byrne knows the challenges breastfeeding moms face in transit.  During an appearance on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," the actress said she's been traveling a lot to promote her new film, "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising" -- while also pumping breast milk for her 3-month-old son, Rocco. At one TSA security checkpoint, Byrne's breast milk was subject to additional screening. "They wave this weird thing over the top of it and there's a whole production going on," she recalled. "They take it very seriously that it could be something." In that moment at the airport, Byrne said she opted to "just stand there and smile and tell them that it's really breast milk and that it's nothing." According to the TSA website, breast milk is exempt from the 3.4 ounce requirements but may be subject to testing by X-ray or other measures at airport security. Parents are also instructed to declare these liquids to TSA. The actress didn't mention if the TSA seized ...

Eric Bogosian's 100 Monologues
Huffington Post - about 1 year
monologue: from the Greek μονόλογος; μόνος mónos or "alone, solitary" and λόγος lógos, "speech." The first recorded monologues and soliloquys go back at least as far as ancient Roman and Greek times. But unless you are someone with huge amounts of time on your hands and you love to surf the internet to discover acting gems that don't get theatrical releases-or you happen to live in New York and frequent the theater on a regular basis--It's often hard to see some of our most talented actors in this isolated, most intense form. Eric Bogosian's latest labor of love, which goes by the self-explanatory name of 100Monologues.com is here to remedy that, at least partly. In these one hundred sometimes hilarious, sometimes tragic but always revealing monologues written by the three-time Obie award winner and performed by his posse of A-List actors, you get glimpses into his psyche and that of performers that you may never get elsewhere. The themes presented will be familiar to Bogosi ...

Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese Talk About <i>Vinyl</i>, and the Good Music From New York's Bad Old Days
Huffington Post - about 1 year
New York in the 1970s was dirty and dangerous. Hey, wait, so was rock 'n' roll. That spells a potentially beautiful friendship for television, just as it did in real life, and HBO plunges into that deranged era full-tilt on Feb. 14 when it breaks out a loud new show called Vinyl. It's arriving with impressive lineage. The creators and executive producers are Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese, who will also be directing the first episode. "The genesis was an idea that I had years ago," Jagger told TV writers in Pasadena this week. "I took it to Marty and we first tried to develop it as a movie. We wrote scripts and scripts. "When TV started to become respectable, interesting and money-making, we decided to make a TV series out of it." Jagger also said that while it draws on his experiences in the music business, the specific stories aren't based on his own stories, or those of his musical quintet, the Rolling Stones. By 1973, when Vinyl begins, the Stones were al ...

Olivia Wilde Received Some Of Her Best Hollywood Wisdom From Tilda Swinton
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Olivia Wilde has worked with Martin Scorsese, Ron Howard and Jon Favreau -- names that would appeal to anyone in Hollywood with an ounce of sense. You'll notice they have one thing in common beyond great films: penises. Where are the women in Wilde's moviemaking life? Few and far between, as it turns out. Her new film, "Meadowland," in which she and Luke Wilson play a couple reeling from the loss of their child, is one of the few times a woman has steered a project with which Wilde is involved. That includes one season on "The O.C." and five on "House." She's optimistic about the attention being paid to equality in Hollywood, however, partly thanks to her collaboration with Reed Morano, who shot and directed "Meadowland." Morano also shot five episodes of Wilde's forthcoming '70s-set rock 'n' roll series "Vinyl," which premieres on HBO in January and is written by "Sopranos" and "Wolf of Wall Street" scribe Terence Winter. The Huffington Post sat down with Wilde for a deep dive on ...

Al Pacino Plays Aging Rock Star in "Danny Collins"
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
all phootos from Bleeker Street Last night, Friday, at the AMC 15 Theatre in Century City I attended a showing of Al Pacino's new film, DANNY COLLINS, from Bleeker Street Media. Pictures, which is getting a limited release starting today. I happened to be seated next to an old friend, and I made the ego-driven mistake of mentioning that I had actually discovered Al and put him into his first Broadway show. After the screening we caucused in the lobby and smiled at each other as we shook our heads in wonder at the excellence of what we had just seen. All in all, we decided that we really liked the movie a great deal. In fact I told old acquaintance Harris Katelman, who was entering the theatre, that I thought it was Pacino's best performance in years and one of the fjnest pictures I had seen thus far this year. (And my Huffington readers may recall that I wrote a lauditory review of Al's The Humbling just a few months ago.) Dannys' famaily in the film. Annette Bening is ...
