By filmmaker George Miller’s own account, Mad Max: Fury Road took 10 years to develop and an additional three years of production — totally worth it, based on the end result, which picked up 10 Oscar nominations (including Best Picture) and won six. Though Miller has expressed interest in returning to the franchise in the (relatively) near future, those plans may suffer the consequences of a recent lawsuit filed by the Australian filmmaker to recoup an allegedly unpaid debt from Warner Bros.
You’d be forgiven if — somewhere between Harvey Weinstein, Brett Ratner, Kevin Spacey, and the numerous allegations of sexual harassment and assault leveled against them (and others) in recent weeks — you had forgotten about Jeremy Piven. The former Entourage star was previously accused of sexually assaulting a woman on the set of the HBO series. Over the last several days, two more women have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct, while video footage of another woman accusing Piven of harassment in 2013 has resurfaced.
This afternoon, the New York premiere of Louis C.K.’s upcoming film I Love You, Daddy was canceled amid reports that the New York Times was on the verge of publishing a major story about the comedian. That story is, as many suspected, a damning exposé on C.K.’s history of alleged sexual misconduct. Five women went on the record with the Times to share stories of uncomfortable encounters with C.K., the oldest of which dates back to the late ’90s.
Say what you will about Kevin Smith’s recent films or his persona, but there’s no denying that the filmmaker made the right call when he announced his intention to donate all future Weinstein and Miramax film residuals to charity. And now he’s inspired longtime friend Ben Affleck to do the same, as the Justice League star has revealed that he will donate his own residuals from Weinstein films to Film Independent and RAINN (the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network).
Disney made an announcement on their official Twitter account yesterday, debuting the full voice cast ensemble for The Lion King, Jon Favreau’s live-action (-ish) reimagining of the studio’s animated classic — and perhaps the most exciting project on their upcoming (and growing) slate of live-action remakes.
Less than a week after Quentin Tarantino released a statement through friend and actor Amber Tamblyn, the filmmaker has finally opened up about Harvey Weinstein. Tarantino’s professional relationship with the former studio executive dates back 25 years to Reservoir Dogs; over the years, it’s transcended business and become personal, as well. And yet, despite knowing about some of the sexual assault and harassment allegations, Tarantino admits that he did nothing.
On Sunday evening, Icelandic music icon and magical human being Björk revealed that she was sexually harassed by an unnamed “Danish director” several years ago. The revelation came in the wake of over two dozen (and climbing) sexual assault and harassment allegations against disgraced former Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein. Given that Björk has appeared in relatively few films, and only one of those was helmed by a Danish man, the identity of the unnamed director was easy to deduce: Lars von Trier.
You can’t really deny prospective appeal of Kristen Stewart playing a gun-wielding, gadget-toting, ass-kicking super detective, which makes today’s potential casting news pretty exciting. Elizabeth Banks and Sony are reportedly eyeing Stewart to play one of the three leads in their upcoming big screen reboot of Charlie’s Angels, but she’s not the only awesome name under consideration — obviously.
IT may be the surprise box office hit of 2017, but it’s not the most surprising Stephen King adaptation of the year. That honor goes to Gerald’s Game, Mike Flanagan’s adaptation of what is perhaps the most un-adaptable novel in King’s bibliography — not necessarily in terms of the story’s graphic content, but by virtue of its narrative conceit. Approximately 98 percent of Gerald’s Game centers on one woman and her inner monologue as she desperately attempts to free herself from a dire situation.
Although Warner Bros. and New Line have yet to formally greenlight IT: Chapter Two, director Andy Muschietti and his producing partner (and sister) Barbara are already developing the follow-up to one of this year’s biggest hits. With a record-breaking opening weekend and screenwriter Gary Dauberman reportedly on board for the sequel, it shouldn’t be long before WB gives the go-ahead. Until then, Muschietti is spilling the beans on his plans for Chapter Two and how the young cast factors into the story, which is set 27 years after the first film.
