Earlier this year, Jordan Peele (Get Out) was under consideration to direct Warner Bros.' Akira, the long-brewing live-action adaptation of the Japanese manga series about a biker gang and psychic powers. The series was adapted into an animated movie in 1988 (above). Instead, Peele signed a two-year deal with Universal, leaving the helming opportunity open. Now Taika Waititi is in negotiations to direct the project, according to Deadline. Waititi directed Thor: Ragnarok and we've heard glowing reports about the upcoming superhero adventure. In the past, directors like Justin Lin, the Hughes Brothers and Jaume Collet-Serra have been under consideration, while actors such as Dane DeHaan, Michael Pitt, Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart, Ken Watanabe and Helena...

With his highly-anticipated Thor: Ragnarok hitting theaters in November, director Taika Waititi has just landed his next high-profile project, Warner Bros.' Akira. The director has entered negotiations to take the helm of this manga adaptation, which has languished in development hell for several years, and has never been able to get off the ground yet. This long-gestating Akira movie last made headlines back in May, when Jordan Peele turned down the project, following the success of his hit movie Get Out.
Deadline broke the news today, also revealing that the studio has always planned to make two Akira movies, each of which would cover three books apiece in the 6-volume Akira graphic novel by Katsuhiro Otomo. The last we heard about this project was that Akira creator Katsuhiro Otomo has final approval over every aspect of the Akira movie, which may explain why it's taken so long to come to fruition. »

Why isn’t Evan Rachel Wood a major movie star? I mean a star on the level of Jennifer Lawrence, Kristen Stewart, Angelina Jolie? In “A Worthy Companion,” she’s got a bloom on her — clear eyes, ravishing grin, two-tone hair swept back and parted in the middle, a look that’s pristine in its punk elegance. (She suggests a more open, less halting Kristen Stewart.) Yet she gives a performance of such accomplished anguish that it seems dragged out of the lower depths.
Wood plays Laura, who works for her father’s company doing house-cleaning in an unnamed city that’s cozy, tree-lined, and overcast; it looks like it could be Portland or the Toronto suburbs. When Laura has to, she presents a face to the world that’s calm and sweet and happy, but inside she’s a wreck, a broken howl of rage from her childhood. What makes Wood a star is the way »

It’s been a banner year for Saturday Night Live.
While the show won two awards at this weekend’s Creative Arts Emmys — Dave Chappelle won for outstanding guest actor in a comedy series, while Melissa McCarthy’s energetic, scene-stealing Sean Spicer impression helped her win the outstanding guest actress in a comedy series — there are still plenty of awards left for SNL to take back to Rockefeller Center with them.
So, before the big night arrives on Sept. »

Fka Twigs is not a “rebound” before Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart get back together, contrary to a ridiculous report. Pattinson and Twigs have had a very real, long-lasting relationship, one that has nothing to do with Stewart. Gossip Cop can shut down this nonsense. “Fka Twigs May Have Been A Rebound Chick Before Robert […] »

We’ve gone ahead and officially dubbed 2017 the year of the buzz cut, and while there’s been plenty of adoptees of this bold new look, including Kristen Stewart, Cara Delevingne, and most recently Sanaa Lathan, the title for the most surprising actress to throw her hat into this hairless ring surely goes to Kate Hudson. And on Monday night, the How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days star proved she truly has her finger on the pulse of youth culture, sharing a photo of her and her son Ryder Robinson’s matching shaved scalps.
Hudson originally cut off all of her long, »

Kristen Stewart is accused of being a bad tipper in one of this week’s tabloids, but the allegation is entirely bogus. Gossip Cop looked into the claim and we can exclusively set the record straight. The actress is included among several other stars in a section of this week’s Ok! dubbed “Celebrity Cheapskates,” which features […] »

I love the rhythm of Kelly Reichardt's 2016 film, Certain Women. An unhurried triptych of stories about women in small-town Montana, Certain Women has the time (and the sense) to let moments hang, as tiny calibrations of feeling pass across its lead characters' faces. Anchored by rewarding performances by Laura Dern, Michelle Williams and Lily Gladstone (with Kristen Stewart running the anchor leg on the latter's story), the film rewards detailed repeat viewing -- which makes its addition to the Criterion Collection a great choice. Laura Dern plays a lawyer (also named Laura), who struggles with a client (Jared Harris) unwilling to let his grievance against a former employer go. Harris gives the showier performance but Reichardt's camera is much more interested in how Harris'...

HollywoodLife is turning Robert Pattinson’s new haircut into clickbait by asking fans to vote on whether he “rocks” a buzz cut better than Kristen Stewart. It’s an inane article that seeks to score traffic by encouraging their respective fan bases to duke it out in a poll and in the comments section. As Gossip Cop […] »

Olivier Assayas. Photo by Locarno Festival / Massimo PedrazziniAt this year’s edition of the Locarno Festival, French filmmaker Olivier Assayas was the head of the main competition jury. As the festival drew to a close, we caught up with Assayas in the lobby of his hotel for an informal chat about viewing habits, mobile phones in cinema, and his upcoming project Ebook.Notebook: Have you seen any of the Jacques Tourneur movies from the festival's retrospective? Olivier Assayas: I’ve seen Out of the Past (1947) and Berlin Express (1948).

It may have taken her 38 years, a crazy-toned set of abs and her own line of workout gear, but Kate Hudson has finally figured out the easiest way to look her best after the gym.
When asked in Cosmopolitan‘s October issue (she’s the magazine’s cover girl!) about her post-workout beauty secrets, the Fabletics cofounder‘s response was simple: “Shaving your head. Cuts down on time spent post-sweat,” she tells Cosmopolitan in an interview for the magazine’s October issue.
After years of sporting her iconic blonde, beachy waves, Hudson revealed a shocking new look back in July. »

Kristen Stewart’s second act isn’t just in the works, it’s here. The long-time actress — at age 27, she’s already been acting professionally for more than half her life — initially dreamed of being a filmmaker, a desire she’s lately been putting into practice through short-form directorial opportunities, including a Chvrches music video and her directorial film debut, the short “Come Swim.” The film bowed earlier this year at Sundance, before going on to screen at Cannes and, most recently, a slot as part of Sundance’s traveling Short Film Tour.
Produced as part of Refinery29’s Shatterbox Anthology — a collection of short films all made by women, and of every stripe, from well-known names like Stewart to rising stars like Courtney Hoffman — the film’s short synopsis bills it as “a diptych of one man’s day; half impressionist and half realist portraits.” Part dreamy (and often unnerving) fable, »
