Zach Braff to Direct ‘Going in Style’ Remake

Zach Braff directing Wish I Was Here

It took Zach Braff ten years to get from his first directing effort to his second, and even then he had to turn to Kickstarter for funding. But it looks like he won’t be waiting quite so long to make his third. And he won’t need crowdfunding to get this one going, either.

Braff has entered talks with New line to direct Going in Style, a remake of the 1979 caper starring George Burns, Art Carney, and Lee Strasberg. Hit the jump for more details on the Zach Braff Going in Style remake. Read More »

Age of Adaline

You’d think eternal youth and immortality would be gifts, but in TV and movies it’s as often as not a curse. Vampires and mutants alike angst over the unfairness of having to remain young and beautiful while the world spins on. And in The Age of Adaline, Blake Lively joins the pity party.

The Gossip Girl alum plays a 27-year-old woman rendered ageless thanks to a freak accident in the 1930s. As her loved ones start to grow old and die off, she becomes withdrawn — until a handsome man (Michiel Huisman, a.k.a. Daario Naharis v2.0 from Game of Thrones) draws her out of her shell. Ellen Burstyn and Harrison Ford also star. Watch the Age of Adaline trailer after the jump.

Steve McQueen Sets Paul Robeson Biopic as Next Feature

shame-steve-mcqueen

Hunger and Shame got director Steve McQueen some pretty great buzz, but it wasn’t until 12 Years a Slave that he really broke through outside the indie/arthouse crowd. The slavery drama took home Best Picture at the 86th Oscars and marked McQueen as a big deal. Now he’s using the clout he gained from that film to get his next one moving.

McQueen is set to follow up 12 Years a Slave with a biopic of performer and activist Paul Robeson. Harry Belafonte is already set to star. Hit the jump for more details on the Steve McQueen Paul Robeson project.

What Did Stephen Hawking Think of ‘Theory of Everything’?

The Theory of Everything (1)

As a theoretical physicist, Stephen Hawking isn’t usually one to weigh in on recent movies. But The Theory of Everything is naturally of special interest to him, seeing that it stars Eddie Redmayne as Hawking himself.

For their part, critics have been gushing about Redmayne’s performance. He’s widely considered a shoo-in for an Oscar nomination, and has been ever since the film’s festival debut. But Hawking would know better than anyone whether Redmayne really did a good job — so what did Hawking think? Get the Stephen Hawking Theory of Everything reaction after the jump.  Read More »

Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs movie

The Steve Jobs film to be directed soon by Danny Boyle isn’t a biopic, emphasizes screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, and we know that the structure of the film is unusual. Rather than tracing the entrepreneur’s life, the script looks in on his life at three specific points in time over more than a decade. We don’t know much else, however. Michael Fassbender is said to be the top choice for the starring role after Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale passed, and that casting should be firmed up soon.

But there’s an interesting new bit of information: while Steve Jobs’ daughter Lisa Brennan-Jobs did not speak to Walter Isaacson for the book upon which the film is primarily based, she did speak to Sorkin. He calls her “the heroine of the movie,” and that suggests that the film could add something new to our understanding of Jobs’ life, and not just rehash what we’ve already known. Read More »

Game of Thrones Tywin and Cersei Lannister

Even if you’re paying close attention, it can be very difficult to keep track of who’s who in Game of Thrones. There are a lot of characters, first of all. Some of them with very similar names. And then there’s the task of sorting out the various relationships between the characters. Who’s married to whom? Who’s that guy’s mom? Are those two siblings or lovers?

Well, fear not. A new Game of Thrones family tree lays out the interconnected lineages of nearly everyone we’ve met in Westeros. It’s a pretty daunting task considering we’ve met dozens in the show, and several dozens more in the A Song of Ice and Fire books. Hit the jump to see the Game of Thrones family tree.
