Watch: First Trailer for J.K. Rowling's 'The Casual Vacancy', Coming to HBO in April

2 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Instead of a massive blockbuster cinematic event, J.K. Rowling's follow-up to her Harry Potter novels is getting a major small screen release courtesy of both HBO and the BBC as we have the first trailer for The Casual Vacancy based on Rowling's first adult novel. Starring Rory Kinnear, Simon McBurney and Michael Gambon, the story begins with the death of Barry Fairbrother (Kinnear) and the small town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty fa?ade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils...Pagford is not what it first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the »

Rolling Stone’s Uva Rape Story Review Will Be ‘Damning’

10 minutes ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The independent review of Rolling Stone’s “A Rape on Campus” story will be long and “damning” to the magazine. Politico’s Dylan Byers reports that the analysis, written by Columbia Journalism Review’s Steve Coll, is longer than the original 9,000-word story written by Sabrina Rubin Erdely. It will also provide “a blunt indictment of Rolling Stone’s reporting and its violation of journalism ethics,” according to Byers. Also Read: Uva Fraternity Considering Legal Options Against Rolling Stone On Sunday, Rolling Stone managing editor Will Dana said the review would be published in a few weeks.

Film Review: ‘A Wonderful Cloud’

15 minutes ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Those seeking a raucous, wholly improvised 21st-century “Annie Hall” need look no farther than Eugene Kotlyarenko’s ultra-indie “A Wonderful Cloud.”  Featuring the filmmaker himself as a transplanted New Yorker in Los Angeles and his real-life former g.f., actress Kate Lyn Sheil, as the visiting ex he can’t get over, the film trots out a succession of weirdos and encourages them to spin their alienated angst or trendy imbecility around the mismatched couple as they explore an implausible future together. This freewheeling, sometimes scatological comedy owes more to truth than wit but, not devoid of charm, could catch on.

Katelyn (Sheil) flies out to L.A. to obtain the signature of her ex-lover Eugene (Kotlyarenko) on papers transferring his half of their jointly held clothing venture over to her. Eugene, on his side, harbors hopes of rekindling their affair, though his first stabs at intimacy include taking a »

Ryan Phillippe Looks Back on His ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ Days

16 minutes ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ryan Phillippe launched into A-list territory as a murder victim in the 1997 teen hit “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” which Variety deemed a “polished genre piece with superior fright elements.” Almost two decades later, he’s starring as a prime suspect on ABC drama “Secrets and Lies.” Now 40, with kids old enough to watch the R-rated horror pic (though he says they haven’t), Phillippe admits he feels like a dinosaur, with a remake of the popcorn thriller in development.

As a twentysomething, was your first Variety mention significant to you?

Of course! That’s a huge deal when you’re a young actor coming from where I did — this lower middle-class family that had nothing to do with Hollywood or acting. I saved probably the first 10 or 15 times I was mentioned. My mom bought probably four or five copies when we were in New York, because you »

Gillian Flynn and Steve McQueen Team for Heist Thriller

31 minutes ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"Gone Girl" scribe Gillian Flynn has come aboard Steve McQueen's heist thriller for New Regency. This marks the British director's first feature film since his "12 Years a Slave," also financed by New Regency, won Best Picture in 2014. The yet-to-be-titled heist thriller thriller is based on the 1983 Brit miniseries "Widows," which was penned by Lynda La Plante, who wrote the original six-part series as well as Helen Mirren starrer "Prime Suspect." "Widows" is about a caper gone awry after four armed robbers are killed in a botched heist. Their widows team up to finish what they started. It will be interesting to see what McQueen does with what is perfect terrain for Flynn. According to THR, the film won't be titled "Widows" and it will be set in a modern-day American city that isn't London. This more commercial-sounding McQueen outing is expected to enter pre-production in the Fall, with Iain Canning and Emile Sherman. »
