It was a few months ago we heard even David O. Russell was getting in on the TV game, flanked by none other than Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore, but the big break is finally here. Not only does the limited series have a two-season order locked up at Amazon, reports suggest it might be a mafia series.
With all the new reviews and interview coming out of Toronto this past week — it’s kind of like Comic-Con International, but for the arthouse crowd — it’s totally understandable if you missed some of the casting notices or odds-and-ends about upcoming productions. So here’s one important bit of news you might have overlooked: according to Deadline, Julianne Moore is set to headline a cast of impressive actors for the Paul Weitz adaptation of the bestseller Bel Canto.
Television is all about the limited series right now, and David O. Russell is cashing in on the trend.
Before Deadpool, Fox had another R-rated comic book movie that was a surprise success on Valentine’s Day weekend. Kingsman opened in theaters on February 12 of last year to over $400 million worldwide and it didn’t take long before Kingsman 2 was greenlit at Fox. With many of the characters from the original not surviving for a sequel, director Matthew Vaughn has had to cast some new actors, and he’s already found his new villain. Julianne Moore has signed on to star in the film as the latest supervillain to terrorize Eggsy.
Don’t play with our hearts like this, Clooney. Academy Award-winning actor and director George Clooney has begun making moves to get a production by the name of Suburbicon up and running, an exciting prospect for movie-industry observers. With a...
The good news is The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 contains less scenes of people sitting around and waiting for things to happen than The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1.
Julianne Moore has given some of her best work (and she has a lot of great work) in films directed by Todd Haynes. The actress appeared in Haynes’ exceedingly unnerving drama Safe and earned an Oscar nomination for her performance in Far From Heaven. For fans of the director’s collaborations with Moore, today brings very exciting news, as the actress is set to reunite with Haynes for his next project — which might result in something a bit different than what we’ve come to expect from Haynes.
The characters in Freeheld repeatedly tell one another that “life isn’t fair” — and with good reason. The film is about a decorated police officer who spent most of her life hiding her homosexuality to avoid discrimination and bigotry. After years in the closet, she finally falls in love and enters into a domestic partnership, only to be stricken with terminal cancer. All she wants to do is award her pension to her partner so that she can afford to keep their house, but the local government denies her request simply because her partner happens to be a woman. Every single aspect of this scenario is unfair.
Nicolas Cage makes a lot of movies. His IMDb page lists 15 roles since 2011, with another 10 more in various stages of production and development for the rest of 2015 and 2016. Dinosaur bones, haunted houses, and giant pyramid tombstones in New Orleans don’t come cheap.
The Freeheld trailer presents a “based on true events” period piece drama that is all about the social injustices of another era. Unlike most movies cut from this cloth, this particular case of social injustice isn’t being remembered several decades later, but only 10 years after the fact. The story of a lesbian couple’s battle for equal treatment in the eyes of the law, Freeheld couldn’t have landed in a more appropriate year. 2015 has been a year of victories for the LGBT community and this trailer is a reminder of how quickly change has come and just how many worlds away 2005 is from today.
