Channing Tatum and longtime collaborator and producing partner Reid Carolin were set to make their co-directorial debut with an adaptation of Matthew Quick’s YA novel Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock. The film was set up with The Weinstein Co., but in an official statement released today, Tatum and Carolin revealed that they are no longer developing the project at the studio in the wake of extensive sexual assault and harassment allegations against former studio head Harvey Weinstein.
The recent trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi gave us a pretty hefty preview of the latest chapter in the saga, but amid all that new footage, a few things were missing — chiefly Laura Dern, who plays the violet-haired Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo (what a name!). We’ve seen Dern in costume before, but a new image circulating online gives us a fresh sneak peek at her exciting Star Wars character…and reveals another BB unit.
Maybe it (allegedly) runs in the family. As the number of women accusing Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment, assault and rape continues to grow, his brother Bob has picked up an allegation of his own: Amanda Segel, a showrunner and executive producer on The Mist, has accused Bob Weinstein of sexual harassment while in production on the now-defunct Spike TV series.
There’s a lot to miss about the late, incomparably great Carrie Fisher: Her delightful screen presence, her sharp contributions to screenwriting, her brilliant wit and unapologetic candor, and her advocacy for those suffering from mental health problems and addiction. She was, for lack of a better word, a badass. And the legend of her awesomeness lives on through those who loved her, like Heather Ross — a screenwriter and friend of Fisher’s, who recently shared an amazing story about the time she was sexually harassed by a studio executive, and the artist occasionally known as Princess General Leia exacted revenge on her behalf.
With Harvey Weinstein’s extensive history of sexual harassment and assault recently exposed, more women have come forward with new allegations of abuse. As the number of Weinstein’s accusers continues to grow, the film distribution company he co-founded with his brother Bob is reportedly negotiating a possible sale. The Weinstein Company has nine upcoming films on its slate, including The Current War; over the weekend, the potential awards contender had its release date pushed back from this fall to an undetermined date in 2018. But that’s not the only film that could be affected by the growing allegations against the company’s former executive.
Every day, more women step forward to join the growing chorus of those who were sexually assaulted or harassed by Harvey Weinstein. The famed Hollywood executive has been accused of abusing his power to victimize dozens of women, but each new, horrible story is matched by another celebrity essay or social media post denouncing Weinstein and offering support to the (seemingly) countless number of women who survived him. We can now add Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson, Ryan Gosling (and more) to the list of their supporters.
Admittedly, this old video of Gerard Butler auditioning for the lead in Dracula 2000 isn’t new to the internet, but it is entirely appropriate viewing for this spoooooky season. It is so hilariously terrifying that you could easily put it on a YouTube playlist for your Halloween party and not a single guest would question why “Gerard Butler Dracula Audition” was queued up between “The Monster Mash” and a compilation of Freddy Krueger kills.
Cinema legend has it that if you say his name three times, Beetlejuice will appear. Given how often the Beetlejuice sequel has been discussed in the press, we should have like, eight more of these movies by now. And although the long-gestating project remains unofficial, Warner Bros. has brought on a new writer to take a crack at writing a screenplay worthy of luring Tim Burton and Michael Keaton back for more spooky fun.
Riverdale delivered on a few promises in tonight’s Season 2 premiere: A conclusion (more or less) to last season’s cliffhanger, the return of Hiram Lodge, and more HAWF action — for real, though, we all know it’s about our boy Jughead Jones, who easily had the best moment of the night. But just as the dust (or gunpowder) settled on Pop’s diner and it looked as though everyone was relatively safe, the final moments of the premiere yielded a surprising return…and a shocking death.
Due to some complicated rights issues, it remains unlikely that we’ll see everyone’s favorite angry green smashing machine in another solo movie anytime soon. But Mark Ruffalo and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige have apparently cooked up a plan that will allow the Hulk (and his puny alter ego Bruce Banner) to have his very own film trilogy of sorts. Think of it as a film-within-a-film trilogy.
As numerous women have come forward with extensive allegations of sexual abuse and harassment suffered at the hands of Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein, many more celebrities have weighed in — some sharing their own Weinstein horror stories and near misses, while others have applauded the bravery of his victims for speaking out; all of them condemning the actions of Weinstein and men like him. Not long after Ben Affleck issued his statement on Weinstein’s deplorable behavior, the actor was hit with allegations of his own.
It should go without saying, but just in case: SPOILERS AHEAD for Blade Runner 2049 — specifically the ending of Denis Villeneuve’s sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic, which has proven itself exceptionally faithful to its predecessor in that it’s already woefully underappreciated in its time. But if you’re one of the (very smart) few who paid to see Blade Runner 2049 over the weekend, you may be interested to learn a little more about the film’s ending, which wasn’t originally written that way.
