Obama hasn’t even been out of the White House for six months and already nostalgia for what used to be has hit its zenith amongst a good portion of the country. Anonymous Content and Universal Pictures are teaming up to adapt a book proposal written by a former White House stenographer, titled From the Corner of the Oval.
Meryl Streep is getting another opportunity to spit some political fire all over the Dolby Theatre on Sunday. Today the Academy revealed that yes, of course Streep would be among the presenters at this year’s ceremony, probably hoping for another rousing speech from the actress who’s made it known that she won’t take any nonsense from anyone, not even from the highest office in the land.
Kong: Skull Island is a kind of sequel to 2014’s Godzilla, and, since it’s also about a giant monster, has a lot to live up to in terms of creating a ridiculously huge sense of scale. Kong is bigger than anything should be allowed to be, and it’s sometimes tough to make a monster look big without making it look silly and unbelievable. A few new clips from Kong: Skull Island show us that this movie will have the same sense of wonder and awe as Godzilla — and maybe even more.
Nowadays, actors are often straight-up forbidden from doing their own stunts so that they don’t suffer from any lasting injuries. Some, like Tom Cruise, have the star-power needed to convince a director he wants to be strapped to the side of a jetliner while it takes off, but most of the time it’s the stunt-doubles doing all the work. Not so for Burt Ward, who played sidekick Robin in the original 1960’s Batman TV show. He recounts a time during production during which he had to perform a stunt so dangerous he was sent to the emergency room.
No, this is not a drill. Paramount shelving the new Friday the 13th so soon before production was supposed to begin came as a somewhat sudden disappointment, but, to paraphrase Julie Andrews, when Hollywood closes a door, somewhere they open a window. As it turns out, that window is a Halloween reboot, which already has a director, a screenwriter, a studio, a release date, and, quite possibly, a score from the horror master himself, John Carpenter.
Batman v. Superman. Godzilla vs. Mothra. Kramer vs. Kramer. Throughout film history we have been treated to the battle royales of battle royales, the feuds to end all feuds, but there may be one that stands above all others. Earlier this year, Fox News host Megyn Kelly, along with other female employees of the network, both names and unnamed, accused now-former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes of sexual harassment. The ensuing waterfall of accusations combined with a lawsuit leveled against him by Gretchen Carlson caused Ailes to resign form his position in July. If you’ve been hungry for all the hot deets on the scandal to be brought to light, perhaps on the big screen, get ready for your dreams to be realized. The Ailes-Kelly feud is being made into a movie by one of the screenwriters behind The Big Short.
The one thing Hollywood loves more than biopics is literary adaptations, and when the two combine, it’s even better. Paramount recently acquired the rights to the book Sam Phillips: The Man Who Invented Rock ‘N’ Roll by Peter Guralnick, about the producer who launched the careers of artists like Elvis Presley, Ike Turner, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Johnny Cash. You might’ve heard of them. And who better than Leonardo DiCaprio himself to play the titular producer?
Tom Hanks is making the most of all the Sully buzz: earlier today, it was revealed that Hanks has written a script for a movie called Greyhound, and also hopes to star in the picture if he can get it picked up. Aaron Schneider (director of Get Low and director of photography for Titanic) has signed on to direct.
