Martin Scorsese Talks With Joanna Hogg About Their History & How He Got Involved With ‘The Souvenir’

There is nothing better than two incredible artists discussing their shared love of art. And in film, it’s always great when two filmmakers are able to not only discuss their own work, but give commentary on the state of the industry and films that stand out. That’s exactly what happens in the new A24 podcast with directors Martin Scorsese and Joanna Hogg.

At first, you may wonder why the director of films like “Goodfellas” and “Raging Bull” would find himself in a room with a British filmmaker known for her intensely dramatic films like “Archipelago” and the upcoming A24 release “The Souvenir.” Well, Scorsese is actually a fan of Hogg’s and is one of the executive producers on the latter film, as well as its forthcoming sequel.

Joe Pesci May Return For Lethal Weapon 5

While Joe Pesci isn’t to everyone’s taste, the actor has earned his place in cinema history with roles in everything from Raging Bull to Goodfellas and Home Alone. In fact, Pesci has emerged from virtual retirement for Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman and now, may reprise one of his iconic parts for Lethal Weapon 5. The action franchise, which has recently spun-out a troubled television series, hasn’t had a new entry since 1998, but sources suggest that shooting may start later this year.

It’s fair to say that the Lethal Weapon series is problematic, given its association with some relatively dated 1980s humor, as well as original co-star Mel Gibson’s fall from grace. Still, from its launch in 1987 with Richard Donner’s first film, the series has generated almost a billion dollars in worldwide revenues for Warner Bros. And in Hollywood, money talks.

Young Tony Soprano Rocks His Iconic Gold Chain in The Many Saints of Newark Set Photos

Young Tony Soprano Rocks His Iconic Gold Chain in The Many Saints of Newark Set Photos
We have some brand new, rather exciting photos from The Many Saints of Newark. This movie serves as a prequel to The Sopranos, which remains one of the most influential movies in the history of television. Fans have always wanted some sort of continuation, though that became difficult when star James Gandolfini passed away at the age of 51 six years ago. However, creator David Chase has decided to move forward with a story set decades before the events of the series, with Michael Gandolfini, James' son, starring as a young Tony Soprano. And he looks spot on in these latest set photos, rocking his dad's iconic gold chain from the original series in all it's glory.

This isn't the first we've seen of Michael Gandolfini in character, but this is perhaps a better look at the 19-year-old actor's transformation. He's rocking a head full of long hair that Tony wasn't exactly known for,

Ryan Reynolds Pitches An R-Rated Detective Pikachu Movie, And It’s Hilarious

When Ryan Reynolds climbed aboard the live-action Detective Pikachu movie at Warner Bros., we were surprised.

Not because the actor isn’t suited to a voiceover role – far from it, in fact – but because Reynolds was coming fresh off Deadpool 2, and the transition from raunchy, R-rated action to family-friendly comedy seemed… stark. And yet, the excitement for Detective Pikachu will tell you that moviegoers are eagerly anticipating the moment when Reynolds and Co. breathe new life into the iconic Nintendo franchise.

But what if Detective Pikachu took a different course? What if we slipped into another dimension and Warner Bros. were instead releasing an adult-oriented version of the famed pocket monster? Well, it turns out the soon-to-be-released project has enough outtakes to create a full-blown R-rated version, as Reynolds tells ComicBook.com:

A whole bunch of us took passes on the script. I also took a pass on the script.

When I met with Aviva Kempner, the director of The Spy Behind Home Plate, at Soundtracks F/T, where she and Martin Scorsese mainstay re-recording mixer Tom Fleischman were putting in the final touches on her documentary, I had the chance to borrow her sound editor Ira Spiegel (Ken Burns's longtime collaborator) for a short while to clue me in on his work in creating the velvety flow of the picture.

What We Do in the Shadows Episode 6 Review: Baron's Night Out

Vampires show off Staten Island's nightlife in What We Do in the Shadows' "Baron's Night Out."

Culture

This What We Do in the Shadows review contains spoilers.

What We Do in the Shadows Episode 6

What We Do in the Shadows, episode 6, "Baron's Night Out," is the episode I was waiting for. It breaks the taboo of killing a member of the film crew, allows real peril to enter the series and finally unleashes Baron Afanas (Doug Jones) in all his inglorious flesh.

Afanas is a great character who has been kept on ice. He represents the real old world vampire of Nosferatu in the modern world. His approach to everything is anti-stealth. He offers no quarter and no one is safe. He gets very loud and boisterous and vampiry, drinking public urinators, doing shots direct from the tap of a carotid artery, and being an all-around over-the-top bloodsucker.

Just because

Peter Bart: A Memoir Coming, Irwin Winkler Burnishes His Legend By Bringing Scorsese, De Niro & Pacino To Netflix For ‘The Irishman’

Peter Bart: A Memoir Coming, Irwin Winkler Burnishes His Legend By Bringing Scorsese, De Niro & Pacino To Netflix For ‘The Irishman’
In January 2013, Martin Scorsese assembled the cast of his projected next movie, titled The Irishman, for a read-through of the shooting script. Their names — De Niro, Pacino and Pesci – did not resonate as “Irish.” Moreover, the actors, all in their 70s, would play ages 30 to 80 with the help of newly developed technology. The movie would likely be the most expensive non-superhero movie of the year — that is, if it found financing.

And that, the cast knew, was largely in the hands of producer Irwin Winkler, whose recent adventures in funding pictures had been more suspenseful than the plots of his films. Since Winkler has been defying the odds for some 50 years, it’s no surprise that The Irishman will finally get its release this fall, albeit seven years after the reading. The final cost is rumored to approach $140 million, due to its multiple locations set in different periods – a total

The film marks the second collaboration between Dylan and Scorsese, the first being 2005’s “No Direction Home.” Though best known for dramas like “Taxi Driver,” “Goodfellas,

The Irishman Producer Says Scorsese's Next Is Funny Like Goodfellas

The Irishman Producer Says Scorsese's Next Is Funny Like Goodfellas
It looks like there may be some Goodfellas similarities in Martin Scorsese's The Irishman after all. Producer on the project, Jane Rosenthal, states that both movies have a great sense of humor, despite Scorsese's long-time editor Thelma Schoonmaker trying to get away from the comparisons to the iconic director's earlier work. With the same actors and director on board, there are sure to be some similarities, and being compared to Goodfellas is definitely not a bad thing at all. However, Schoonmaker was emphasizing The Irishman is very much its own thing.

The Irishman will get a theatrical debut and Jane Rosenthal believes Martin Scorsesefans are going to want to see this one on the big screen as opposed to Netflix at home. To drive her point home, the producer compared the experience to laughing at home by yourself vs. going to a theater. It's a good comparison, but many

‘The Irishman’ Producer Teases Martin Scorsese’s New Movie: ‘It’s Very Funny’ Like ‘Goodfellas’

‘The Irishman’ Producer Teases Martin Scorsese’s New Movie: ‘It’s Very Funny’ Like ‘Goodfellas’
Martin Scorsese’s longtime editor Thelma Schoonmaker may not want moviegoers to think the director’s upcoming gangster drama “The Irishman” is anything like his genre classic “Goodfellas,” but producer Jane Rosenthal says the two Scorsese movies do share a wicked sense of dark humor. Rosenthal, who is also the co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, tells Variety the humor in “The Irishman” is one reason moviegoers will want to see the film in theaters and not settle for streaming it on Netflix.

“There will be some sort of theatrical component,” Rosenthal said of the movie. “You have to have that. It’s a different experience than watching it at home. In a theater, you may start to laugh at something because the people next to you are laughing — and ‘The Irishman’ is very funny, much like ‘Goodfellas’ was funny.”

Rosenthal continued, “Marty is a genius in the way his shots move.

If that weren’t enough, Rosenthal is gearing up for the 18th edition of the Tribeca Film Festival, the annual celebration of cinema and the arts that she founded with Robert De Niro in 2002 as a way of encouraging people to return to a lower Manhattan still reeling from the 9/11 attacks. Variety spoke with Rosenthal about the festival’s evolving mission, the rise of Netflix and who she’s supporting in the upcoming presidential election.
