    Charlie Kaufman To Write & Direct HBO Series Starring Catherine Keener

    Charlie Kaufman's been a very busy bee recently. It's almost exactly four years since "Synecdoche, New York" premiered at Cannes, and for a long time, there was little-to-no news as to what the writer-director, who made his name penning the screenplays for "Being John Malkovich," "Adaptation" and "E...

    Paul Dano Joins Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender & Brad Pitt In Steve McQueen's 'Twelve Years A Slave'

    If you're going to make a film about slavery, one of the last great taboos, it's going to help if you have an all-star cast behind you. It's what Steven Spielberg did with "Amistad," which starred Anthony Hopkins, Morgan Freeman and Matthew McConaughey. It's what Quentin Tarantino has done with his ...

    Nicholas Stoller To Direct Seth Rogen & Zac Efron In 'Townies'

    Judd Apatow has made no secret of it for some time: he and his family love Zac Efron. It's a move that semi-legitimized the young actor who seemingly has been trying to bust out of the teen hearthrob ghetto with only mixed results thus far (though "The Paperboy" is right around the cor...

    Tom Cruise To Star In Remake Of 'The Magnificent Seven' For MGM

    "The Seven Samurai" is, as we recounted not long ago, a film that has been ripped-off and remade many times before. But the most famous of them is "The Magnificent Seven," the 1960 John Sturges Western that took Akira Kurosawa's classic and moved it to the Old West, for the story of a Mexican villag...

    Lots of chatter on- and offline about the 7-minute preview of Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained that screened for audiences at the Cannes Film Festival today; lots of excitement, and from all I've read from those who were in attendance, nothing but praise for that short glimpse... as...

    The working class are a little funny in “The Angels’ Share,” English director Ken Loach’s new bluecollar comedy. “The Angels’ Share” is Loach’s (“Kes”) latest film to play Cannes after his “The Wind That Shakes the Barley” won the 2006 Palme D’Or and both "Route Irish" and "Looking for Eric" played ...

    Harvey Weinstein Says "Surprise" Co-Stars Could Still Join 'Django Unchained'

    We've all got to hand it to Harvey Weinstein. The guy plays an Academy voter room like a fiddle and he knows exactly what to say to entice the press as well. The Weinstein Company just showed off roughly 10 minutes of Quentin Tarantino's Western/slave drama "Django Unchained" to press today in Canne...

    Things Heat Up In Latest Poster For 'The Dark Knight Rises'

    If it weren't for the vocal fans who've decided that you can only like one of "The Avengers" or "The Dark Knight Rises," not both, as if they were football teams or opposite sides of civil war, we'd have almost forgotten about the closing part of Christopher Nolan's Bat-trilogy.
