The critical failure of Cameron Crowe’s last cinematic venture somewhat changed the conversation around the Almost Famous director’s upcoming Showtime Roadies, and it seems Mrs. Holloway will no longer be helping with PR. Following Christina Hendricks’ earlier exit from the project, Carla Gugino has stepped in as Roadies‘ new production manager.

Cameron Crowe Apologizes For ‘Aloha’, Casting Emma Stone as a Native Hawaiian

Aloha may have opened to scathing reviews and poor box office, but the latest film from writer/director Cameron Crowe did touch a nerve. It just so happened to a nerve that no one ever wants to touch. Despite being set on Hawaii, the cast is chock-full of the whitest white people in Hollywood, including Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams, John Krasinski and Alec Baldwin. That wouldn’t have been a problem if the only character with a distinctly Hawaiian background wasn’t played by the ludicrously pale Emma Stone. Yes, Stone was cast as a character named Allison Ng, so you can see why feathers were ruffled, especially since Hollywood already has a poor track record with racial representation in movies.

Cameron Crowe keeps remaking Jerry Maguire. Elizabethtown. We Bought a Zoo. And now his newest movie, Aloha. Three times in a row now, Crowe has returned to the formula that yielded his biggest financial hit: A good-hearted screwup hits rock bottom and then redeems his disastrous professional mistakes by winning the heart of a great woman.

Aloha, Cameron Crowe’s eighth feature, opens in theaters tomorrow. Its arrival has been met mostly with indifference from both audiences, who seem unaware of its existence, and the studio releasing it, who seems to be hiding it from that audience. In an attempt to raise Aloha’s profile, Crowe took the highly unusual step of making an appearance at the film’s Los Angeles press screening, where he defended his work and called it a “love letter” to Hawaii. Actually, that last part was not that unusual, at least for Crowe, who calls his movies “love letters” any chance he gets.

‘Aloha’ Trailer: Say Hello to Cameron Crowe’s New Film

When we compiled our most anticipated movies of 2015 here at ScreenCrush, I fought hard to include Cameron Crowe’s new movie ‘Aloha.’ True, ‘Elizabethtown’ was sort of a disaster (about a disaster, so it was thematically appropriate, if hugely disappointing), and ‘We Bought a Zoo’ wasn’t a whole lot better, but after ‘Jerry Maguire’ and ‘Almost Famous,’ I just refuse to give up hope that this guy will find his way back to that genius he’s shown repeatedly throughout his career.

Amid all the major blockbusters and new superhero movies we’re excited about this year, there’s one film we’re looking forward to that’s a little different: Cameron Crowe’s latest film which stars Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone, and was previously operating under “Untitled Hawaiian Project” during production. Crowe’s latest effort, which hits theaters in late spring, has now been given the appropriate title of ‘Aloha.’

It’s been years since we’ve considered the cast of AMC’s ‘Mad Men’ in the market for a new gig, but with Matthew Weiner’s period drama coming to a close after seven final episodes, one of its biggest stars is headed to a new agency. Christina Hendricks has officially joined the pilot cast of ‘Almost Famous’ creator Cameron Crowe’s Showtime ‘Roadies,’ trading Sterling-Cooper for something with a bit more edge.

Over the summer Showtime committed to a pilot order for ‘Almost Famous’ creator Cameron Crowe’s new concert industry dramedy ‘Roadies,’ alongside Bad Robot and executive producer J.J. Abrams, though we haven’t heard much since. Now, the pilot has reportedly set sights on Luke Wilson and Imogen Poots for two of its leading characters, but who might they play?

Now more than ever we've seen TV looking to classic films of the '80s and '90s for the next great small screen series idea, whether by reboot or sequel, but a proposed 'Say Anything' TV sequel may have trouble getting its boombox up in the air. NBC has begun development of a potential followup to the classic 1989 Cameron Crowe film, though Crowe is outspokenly none-too-pleased about it.
