Wyatt Russell (‘Lodge 49’) on capturing the ‘magic of the mundane’ and pondering what the surreal show is ‘truly about’ [Exclusive Video Interview]

Richard Linklater to Write and Direct Bill Hicks Biopic

Tony Sokol Oct 25, 2018

Go back to bed, America. Late cult comic Bill Hicks' true roots are exposed as Richard Linklater bares his own.

"Watching television is like taking black spray paint to your third eye," early alternative comedian Bill Hicks observed, probably on a televised special. Movies are a different story, and filmmaker Richard Linklater, who took over ten years to make one coming-of-age flick, is a different kind of director. The Oscar-winnng director of Boyhood will develop, write and direct a movie about Hicks for Focus Features, according to Collider.

This is a passion project for Linklater. Both he and Hicks grew up in Houston, Linklater’s older brother went to the same school as Hicks, and the director has said he regretted he and the comedian never got to work together. According to reports, Hicks was a fan of Linklater’s Dazed And Confused, whichcame out a

17 Perfect End-of-Summer Movies and TV Shows for Labor Day Weekend (Photos)
The long Labor Day holiday is a perfect time to catch up on beach and back-to-school faves.

“Weekend at Bernie’s” is maybe the ultimate Labor Day movie, a dark comedy about two guys running around the Hamptons with their dead boss’s corpse (long story).

If you came of age in the ’90s, “Saved by the Bell” was unavoidable. Binge old episodes on Hulu.

If you like to watch good-looking people in bathing suits running on the beach, “Baywatch” is your Labor Day show.

John Belushi starred in “Animal House,” about a wild frat house in the early 1960s.

School Ties,” about an exclusive prep school in the 1950s, introduced the world to Matt Damon and Brendan Fraser.

The quintessential teen movie, “American Pie” has more than enough leers and puns to fill your weekend, along with a breakthrough part from Alyson “Band Camp” Hannigan.

11 Best Back-to-School Movies, From ‘Animal House’ to ‘Mean Girls’ (Photos)
There are hundreds of movies about going to school and growing up, but only a handful specifically capture the feeling of summer ending, entering into a new grade, meeting new people and starting fresh. Yes, it’s the waning weeks of August, and that means it’s time for back-to-school shopping, new school butterflies and making the most of the last few days you’ll get outdoors. And though you won’t find teen classics like “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “The Breakfast Club” or others on this list, you will find some great movies meant to get you into the back-to-school spirit.

Everybody Wants Some!!” (2016)

While Richard Linklater’s “Dazed and Confused” is set on the last day of school, his spiritual sequel “Everybody Wants Some!!” is set in the few days before classes begin. In 1980, a Texas college baseball team lives together in a house ahead of the start of the fall season.

Glen Powell Has the Best Reaction Ever to Losing ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Role to Miles Teller

Glen Powell Has the Best Reaction Ever to Losing ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Role to Miles Teller
Glen Powell is at the point in his career where he’s ready to lead a major studio tentpole, but it turns out “Top Gun: Maverick” won’t be the blockbuster to do the trick. Miles Teller has beat Powell and landed the much-discussed role of Tom Cruise’s younger protégé in the long-awaited “Top Gun” sequel. The character is the son of Goose, played by Anthony Edwards in the original. Powell reportedly screen tested for the role opposite Cruise (via Variety), but he lost out to Teller in the end.

Powell didn’t take long to react to the news of Teller’s casting. Minutes after Variety confirmed the “Whiplash” star was joining Cruise for “Top Gun: Maverick,” Powell took to his Twitter page to send the casting article to his followers with a caption that joked he was tearing down all of his Tom Cruise posters after being passed over for the sequel.

Oscars invite 928 new members in 2018: Complete list by branch (and 2014-2017 totals too)

Oscars invite 928 new members in 2018: Complete list by branch (and 2014-2017 totals too)
This year, a record 928 people were invited to join the motion picture academy and will be eligible to vote for the 2019 Oscars. Compare this intake to the totals of the previous four years: 774 in 2017; 683 in 2016; 322 in 2015; and 271 in 2014.

While Academy Awards nominees are automatically eligible for consideration, the rest of the candidates must go through a fairly cumbersome process. A candidate must meet certain branch specific requirements before even being eligible.

For example, actors must “have a minimum of three theatrical feature film credits, in all of which the roles played were scripted roles, one of which was released in the past five years, and all of which are of a caliber that reflect the high standards of the Academy.” For writers, directors and producers they need have just two of these credits.

The executive committee of the branch must endorse the application before forwarding it to the Board of Governors for final approval.

The Academy Invites 928 New Members, from Daniel Kaluuya to Sufjan Stevens

The Academy Invites 928 New Members, from Daniel Kaluuya to Sufjan Stevens
In an astonishing move to swell the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences membership ranks, a record 928 artists and executives from 59 countries have been invited to join this year. The branches have increasingly actively sought eligible people to invite to join the Academy, but the Board of Governors makes the final call; this year, they did not invite Kobe Bryant to join although he won an Oscar for animated short “Dear Basketball.”

Clearly, people of color (38 percent) and women (49 percent) are among the many invites, as the Academy continues to address its long-term white-male dominance. As always, actors make up the largest branch of the Academy, but many new members also come from overseas.

In 2017, the Academy invited 744 new members.

Seventeen Oscar winners are among the new members and 92 Oscar nominees. Nine of the 17 branches invited more women than men. The percentage of women in the Academy has risen

Podtalk: Actor Blake Jenner Nurtures ‘American Animals’

Chicago – One of the coolest-cat young actors is Blake Jenner. The versatile performer began his career on TV’s “Glee,” portraying Ryder Lynn. Since that time, three short years ago, he has broken out in a big way, landing in the ensemble cast of “Everybody Wants Some!!” and “The Edge of Seventeen.” His latest is a combination documentary/narrative film, the unusual and absorbing “American Animals.”

American Animals” tells the absolute true story of four college-age pals who decide it would be awesome to rob a nearby university of their rare book collection, including a John James Audubon first edition that is virtually priceless. Director Bart Layton began his career in documentaries, so he uniquely has the real perpetuators – 10 years after the event – telling their story doc-style, while cutting to the actors playing out the events. The film effectively blurs the line between how we think a heist should work,

Richard Linklater Shooting A Mysterious New 1960s Set Movie

Richard Linklater Shooting A Mysterious New 1960s Set Movie
As per usual, Richard Linklater follows nobody’s path but his own. His last few films have seen him zig and zag from “Dazed & Confused” spiritual sequel “Everybody Wants Some!!” to “The Last Detail” followup “Last Flag Flying” to the upcoming dramedy “Where’d You Go, Bernadette.” However, it looks like the filmmaker is going a bit undercover again, just like he did with “Boyhood.”

Announced at the end of December, but seemingly lost amidst year-end coverage and general exhaustion, The Houston Chronicle revealed that Linklater is currently at work on “a film set during the summer of 1969” in Houston.

Zoey Deutch Rebels in the First Trailer for Max Winkler’s ‘Flower’

Max Winkler’s debut Ceremony was an assured indie dramedy and now eight years later, he’s back with his follow-up. Flower, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year, has the impressive cast of Zoey Deutch, Kathryn Hahn, Adam Scott, Tim Heidecker, Joey Morgan, Dylan Gelula, and Maya Eshet. Ahead of release this March, The Orchard has debuted the full trailer. Telling the story of the Everybody Wants Some!! star as an L.A. teen who loves to rebel with her group of friends, and gets in a bit over her head, it looks like Winkler has cooked up another witty, well-observed comedy.

Rebellious, quick-witted Erica Vandross (Zoey Deutch) is a 17-year-old firecracker living with her single mom Laurie (Kathryn Hahn) and mom’s new boyfriend Bob (Tim Heidecker) in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley. When Bob’s mentally unbalanced son

‘Flower’ Trailer: Zoey Deutch Gets Rebellious

The coming of age movie follows plenty of familiar tropes, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be one well. A couple years back, we had the winning and refreshing “The Edge Of Seventeen,” which felt genuinely authentic to the teenage experience. Now comes “Flower” which offers another take on growing up.

Interview: Richard Linklater Talks ‘Everybody Wants Some!!,’ Spiritual Sequels, Music In His Films & More

In his 25-year feature career, Richard Linklater has consistently developed stories about transitional points in people’s lives, whether it’s the first inkling of a shift from adolescence to adulthood ("Dazed and Confused"), a couple’s shifts in relationship status (the ‘Before’ films) or the regular ebb and flow of many years of life in "Boyhood." Linklater’s latest film, "Everybody Wants Some!!," could almost be a direct sequel to "Boyhood" as it begins with freshman baseball player Jake (Blake Turner) arriving at college, and continues through his first few days spent with new teammates. It’s a fond look at a type of masculinity during the summer of 1980, when, for a moment in time, young men like Jake seemed untouchable. Laced through with autobiographical elements, the film continues Linklater’s gently ambling approach to script and character as it observes the competitive and chest-thumping teammates in various social settings.

Interview: Richard Linklater Talks Everybody Wants Some!!

“…Ah, but I was so much older then, I’m younger than that now.” -Dylan (My Back Pages) The song lyric Richard Linklater borrows for the tagline of his new film, Everybody Wants Some!!, comes from the two-hit-wonder band, Trooper. In the film, the song title is quoted by one of the team’s more aware players. “We’re here for a good time - not a long time”. As in Everybody Wants Some!!'s spiritual predecessor, music is an integral character in his college tale - and I use the word ‘tale’ loosely. But also like in Dazed and Confused, despite its double platinum soundtrack, the music is not at the forefront. It acts as the soundtrack of his characters' lives, providing atmosphere for the good times of...

'Jungle Book' and 'Barbershop 3' Seek Strong Opening Weekends

'Jungle Book' and 'Barbershop 3' Seek Strong Opening Weekends
Last weekend the top twelve at the domestic box office was down 24.3% when compared to last year. In fact, it was the first time since 2008 that the top twelve films at the box office failed to top $100 million in the 15th weekend of the year. This weekend won't have any such issues with Disney's The Jungle Book looking to become one of the top five April openings of all-time. Additionally, Warners' Barbershop: The Next Cut should deliver the largest opening that franchise has seen while Lionsgate's Criminal will likely finish just outside the top five. Disney has tapped into something special when it comes to adapting some of their most iconic animated movies into live action features in recent years. Last year's Cinderella opened with $67.8 million in mid-March, the year before Maleficent opened with $69.4 million and, in 2010, Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland opened with an astonishing $116.1 million before grossing over $1 billion worldwide.
