    New Line Picks Up Melissa McCarthy's Road Trip Script 'Tammy'

    Since her breakthrough role as the crass but loveable Megan in this summer’s “Bridesmaids,” Melissa McCarthy has already hosted “Saturday Night Live” and won a Primetime Emmy for her role on the popular (but insufferable) CBS comedy “Mike & Molly.” Having already completed a role in “Bridesmaids” pr...

    Chris Cooper & Dianne Wiest To Star In Noah Baumbach's 'The Corrections' On HBO

    While the multiplexes increasingly become a place to house event movies and continue to enable the infantilization of moviegoers' taste -- 3D spectaculars, toy franchises, Michael Bay movies, etc. -- HBO is happy to write checks for big name talent.

    Book Review: 'Drew Struzan: Oeuvre' Is A Beautifully Complete Look At The Master Illustrator's Work

    Last fall, the great "Art of Drew Struzan" book was released. It did a fairly comprehensive job of chronicling the career of the master illustrator and offered colorful commentary by the artist, giving us an exclusive peek behind the scenes of some of his most memorable work. Just as amazing as seeing early versions of his poster designs for movies like "Back to the Future" was learning some of the circumstantial anecdotes, such as how his concept for "Money Pit," featuring the house capsizing like the Titanic, was shelved because of a real-life ocean liner tragedy. But the selection was obviously chosen for specific reasons – to illustrate a...

    Channing Tatum To Get Murdered By Steve Carell In Bennett Miller's 'Foxcatcher'

    We've said it before, and we'll say it again -- Channing Tatum is nothing if not determined. The actor who launched to fame with "Step Up" has eagerly taken on any role he can just to work with a top shelf director. The roster of talent he has spent time with on set -- Kimberly Peirce, Michael Mann, Ron Howard, Kevin Macdonald, Steven Soderbergh (x2) -- speaks for itself. As a producer, he's throwing his weight around on upcoming films like "Ten Year," "21 Jump Street" and "Magic Mike," but he's continuing to seek out opportunities to grow as an actor. His physique doesn't allow him a chameleon presence on screen, but his quest to take on str...
