Quentin Tarantino Scraps 'Hateful Eight’ After Script Leak, Names Possible Culprits

January 22nd, 2014 11:57am EST
Quentin Tarantino
We all know how obsessive and private one can get when writing a screenplay. For someone to leak Quentin Tarantino's script for his new western film titled, ‘The Hateful Eight’ is absolutely ridiculous.

Here’s what Tarantino had to say about this:

“I finished a script, a first draft, and I didn’t mean to shoot it until next winter, a year from now,” said the Oscar-winning film-maker to Deadline.com. “I gave it to six people, and apparently it’s gotten out today.

“I gave it to one of the producers on Django Unchained, Reggie Hudlin, and he let an agent come to his house and read it. That’...

Tim Roth
Reservoir Dogs star Tim Roth is in talks to play Prince Rainier Of Monaco in a new Grace Kelly biopic.

Nicole Kidman will play the To Catch a Thief star who turned her back on Hollywood to become a European royal, and trade paper Variety reports Roth is slated to play her husband in the Olivier Dahan movie, titled Grace of Monaco.

The independent film will chronicle Monaco's 1962 clash with neighboring France over tax issues.

Frank Langella is also in negotiations to join the cast, while actress Paz Vega will play opera singer Maria Callas in the film.

Forgotten Friday Flick - 'The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover'

December 9th, 2011 12:45pm EST
The Cook photo
With a crop of both holiday fluff (see "The Sitter!") and forgettable art house fare (don't see "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy!") hitting theaters this week we thought we’d add a little five-star avant-garde experience for the couch crowd. Time for...Forgotten Friday Flick! Can there actually be a film that captures colors and visuals that scream beautiful, but is also immersed in some of the most explicit, disgusting, vile and downright jaw-drop shocking moments ever caught on celluloid? If your name is Peter Greenaway, master filmmaking craftsman, it’s not only possible, but can be foun...

'Lie To Me' 3.13 'Killer App' Review

February 1st, 2011 1:44am EST
Lie To Me
Man, Ashton Holmes must be really bitter about being killed off Nikita, because now he's turned the tables and knocking people off himself on the third-season (series?) finale of Lie To Me. Okay, I'm kidding about that first part, but he certainly plays bad so very well. In fact, he's made Gillian cry. You do not make Gillian Foster cry.

Two days earlier, Cal is busy annoying the daylights out of Zach Morstein (Holmes), who's one of the young wunderkinds behind a social networking program called SeekOut. He's there to tell Zach that he knows all about his evil plan, thanks to Zach's f...

'Lie To Me' 3.12 'Gone' Review

January 25th, 2011 1:01am EST
Lie To Me
If anything, tonight's Lie To Me proves that some people just shouldn't have kids.

The episode centers around a child abduction, and while the mother Collette (Episodes star Kathleen Rose Perkins) blames unknown assailants, her husband Lane (Doug Hutchison, who strangely also just appeared in the episode "Funhouse" two weeks ago as the victim there, at least if you believe FOX's official press releases) would rather hold her responsible for losing their daughter. The situation blatantly exposes how dysfunctional their marriage is, namely because of how emotionally abusive he is. To find...

'Lie to Me' Recap - 'Double Blind'

October 27th, 2010 3:13pm EDT
Lie_to_Me
It's getting a little old now to have the "Lightman falls for bad girl but is really playing her or is he being played" storyline. Especially since last week that exact storyline happened with the dirty cop. We get it. Lightman can be an idiot about women, and he has a fatal attraction to bad types. From now on we can assume that any woman he is attracted to will turn out to be evil in some way. It didn't exactly surprise the audience that Tricia Helfer was a con artist, since the previews for the episode indicated that as did the episode summary. So why spend half an episode trying to pret...

'Lie to Me' Recap - 'Dirty Royal'

October 20th, 2010 7:02am EDT
Lie_to_Me
It's the third season of Lie to Me, and there's a lot of warning flags going up even this early into the season that Lightman's getting too big for his britches. Yes, his arrogance is one of the things the audience loves him for, but there is such a thing as too far and he's slowly heading in that direction. It has more to do with the lack of connection he's had with the team so far. They were like an odd little family unit before, and now they seem very spread out. He's fighting with Foster constantly, Torres is usually just around to look confused and wide eyed, and Loker is trying to get...

'Lie To Me' Recap - 'In The Red'

October 6th, 2010 1:54pm EDT
Lie To me - FOX
It's a little jarring that Lie to Me ended its second season only a month ago, but circumstances picked up the new season early. You see, Lone Star was cancelled very, very quickly, and so FOX pushed up the premiere date. It wasn't supposed to be back until mid-November, but here it is, back to the slot right after House. In the finale of last season, the show was a bit shaken up by the brutal shooting of FBI Agent Ben Reynolds, and Torres and Loker hooked up but then split apart due to his promotion. Neither of those things are discussed in the premiere, which is annoying, and for some rea...

Tim Roth Discusses Season Two Of 'Lie To Me'

September 28th, 2009 10:00am EDT
Tim Roth interview, Lie to Me
Lie to Me became a midseason hit last Spring, offering an intriguing new perspective on crime solving. The Lightman Group specializes in recognizing facial micro-expressions. No matter what the suspect tells them, they know what he or she is really thinking. It's based on the real science of Paul Ekman. Tim Roth plays Cal Lightman on the show, the ultimate human lie detector.

Roth says he has no interest in using the science in real life. As soon as he's done for the day, he shuts off. On TV though, we've seen him call the falafel cart guy on not washing his hands and even warn a woman o...

A Conversation with 'Lie To Me' Star Monica Raymund

Monica Raymund
(TJAGS is a weekly column) Every year I try to pick a new drama to watch and make it my "new show" that I follow for the season. This does not always work out (see: Love Monkey and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip). I had decided that Lie to Me was going to be this year's show, based mainly on my appreciation for Tim Roth (Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction). Due to circumstances, I was out of town and I never got a chance to watch the two episodes I had recorded on DVR when, coincidentally, I was contacted and asked if I wanted to speak to one of the stars, Monica Raymund. I agreed, of course, and ...

Will 'The Dark Knight' Need Darker Villians For Future Films?

July 17th, 2008 9:20am EDT
The Dark Knight
Purple suit, caked-white face, delirious, hand-in-the-cookie-jar grin: the Joker. In 1989's Batman, Jack Nicholson played the role as a coked out 'toon far past loony, at ease in the company of rapists or ravers. In 2008's The Dark Knight, Heath Ledger plays the role like a congenitally hallucinogenic child tight roping over hellfire, dragging behind him the world like limp teddy bear. The newer version is obviously a dark turn for a character with such a light-hearted name, but, so it seems, the entire Batman franchise has taken a dark turn since Batman Begins. In honor of Ledger's, not t...

'The Incredible Hulk' Indeed Jacked Up on CGI Roids

June 13th, 2008 9:53am EDT
Incredible Hulk
(Hollywoodchicago.com) – Technology has done double-edged service and disservice to the legendary Hulk superhero character from Stan Lee’s Marvel Comics.

In peering at the CGI-created ripped body of nothing remotely reminiscent of Edward Norton, the 2008 film iteration of “The Incredible Hulk” has a leg light years up on Lou Ferrigno’s character in the 1978 television series of the “The Incredible Hulk”. Then, Ferrigno only had the luxury of makeup. The rest was the real deal.

On the other hand, Ferrigno – who treats 2008 audiences in a gasping reveal when he appears in...

'The Incredible Hulk': Will It Suck Or Satisfy?

Way back in 2003 Ang Lee, who would go on to helm the critically acclaimed Brokeback Mountain, lent his vision of sprawling epically long filmmaking to Marvel Comic's not-so-jolly green giant, The Hulk.

Before its release it seemed as if everything was coming together. A stellar cast that included Eric Bana and Academy Award winner Jennifer Connelly made up the leads, while a realistic-enough CG Hulk proved to gain support from the fan community. So where did things go wrong? Well, if you saw the film's opening weekend you probably spent the first 45 minutes wondering if you had stumb...

The Best & Worst Films By Quentin Tarantino

April 24th, 2008 8:30am EDT
Quentin Tarantino
The serendipitous career of eccentric movie producer, director and writer Quentin Tarantino is a complex one. Tarantino has made a name for himself by creating nonlinear storylines and filming multiple perspectives from different characters in his movies - a technique that strays from the more commonly used straight-time storyline.

His films are not off the wall, but they invoke an element of surprise that comes from the small details within a scene that catches one off guard and by adding mysterious elements that never get explained. A good example of this was in Pulp Fiction when M...

Celebrity Horoscope: Taurus

April 21st, 2008 8:00am EDT
Renee Zellweger
People who inhabit the Taurus sign (April 20-May 20) have a great work ethic and are reliable, honest, and determined. They don't take any unnecessary risks and are not easily distracted. In other words, they're taskmasters.

Take Cher, for example. She's been working since she was 17 - that's 45 years in the business and one heck of a work ethic. Although she "officially retired" following her 2005 farewell tour, she is contracted to perform over 200 shows over the next three years.

Those born under the bull sign also like to live comfortably. That's not a difficult thi...

"Iron Man" (May 2)

"Iron Man" is a good story, and with the film's decent cast it could be one of the best Marvel movies yet. With Tony Stark being one of the main protagonist/antagonist's in "Civil War," it's no surprise that his time has come.

Tony Stark is a fascinating character. He's not altogether different from Batman, at least on paper. He's a billionaire industrialist who uses his wealth and intelligence to become a superhero, standing among some of the strongest heroes in the world as an equal although he is but a man. Iron Man relies on technology, his wits, and a dark...

ROME (AP) - It is Francis Ford Coppola's first movie in a decade, and the Oscar-winning director said Saturday that audiences should be in no hurry before deciding if Youth Without Youth is good or bad.

Youth Without Youth is Coppola's first movie since The Rainmaker in 1997. It was having its public premiere Saturday evening at the Rome Film Festival.

At an earlier screening for the press, reactions were mixed, and Coppola asked people to see it more than once.
