“How do you have an 11-year-old
character who doesn’t speak in 90 pages? How does this
happen? Who’s going to playing it? [Director James Mangold] sent me a
tape. Actually, it was just a still of an audition room somewhere. You
could just tell by the look on her face. I was like, ‘Holy s—. This is
something.‘” - Hugh Jackman on Dafne’s X-23 audition
News broke Monday that White House national security adviser Michael Flynn had resigned from his position.
The news came after reports that Flynn had spoken to Russian ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak on the phone and discussed sanctions against Russia before the inauguration — and then misled senior members of the Trump administration about it.
The call may potentially putting him in violation of a 1799 statute called the Logan Act. The Logan Act is meant to prevent private citizens from manipulating foreign affairs without the permission or involvement of the U.S. government.
As of now, it remains to be seen whether or not he will face any legal consequences. Read more (2/14/17 9:30 AM)
Zazie Beetz has been cast as Domino in Deadpool 2! Domino is Cable’s sidekick, and she is a mutant who has the abilities of telekinesis, and manipulating things to go her way, like good luck (it’s much more complicated than that but I’m just trying to summarise it). Zazie Beets (who also stars in the hit show Atlanta) has been officially confirmed to be Domino by Ryan Reynolds, but there’s still no official announcement for Cable yet. The Deadpool sequel is currently in pre-production.
At the end of the season finale Wyatt seems to have had a big change of heart in terms of looking forward rather than looking back. The two seem to be on a romantic collision course, but we’ll use this hiatus to discuss if, and how quickly, that’s something we want to explore.
Shawn Ryan, on the possibility of a Lyatt romantic relationship if season 2 gets picked up.
'Logan' Breakout Dafne Keen on Audition Embarrassment and Her X-23 Future
1. She comes from a film-friendly family. Keen is the daughter of British actor Will Keen (The Crown, Wolf Hall)
and Spanish actress Maria Fernandez Ache, with multiple directors and
writers in her extended family. “I remember spending entire school
holidays in rehearsing spaces, watching my mum and dad working, and
followed them around on tour or on film sets all the time,” she tells Heat Vision. “I went to see Hamlet, which
they directed about 10 times, and I always loved it. I remember I used
to listen to the actors rehearsing and try to remember all their lines
while I played with the color filters they put in the lights.” From her
parents, she says, she’s learned about “being truthful, and the most
important thing being telling the story, and all working together for
the same thing. I love that.” (x)
Bleecker Street is partnering with Steven Soderbergh’s Fingerprint Releasing to distribute his upcoming comedy Logan Lucky, starring Channing Tatum and Adam Driver as two brothers who attempt to pull off a heist during a NASCAR race. The film, currently in postproduction is set to open wide Aug. 18.
The cast also includes Riley Keough, Hilary Swank, Seth MacFarlane, Katie Holmes, and Daniel Craig along with Katherine Waterston, Dwight Yoakam, Sebastian Stan, David Denman, Macon Blair, Jack Quaid and Brian Gleeson.
The film’s original screenplay was written by Rebecca Blunt. Gregory Jacobs, Mark Johnson, Reid Carolin and Tatum served as producers. Zane Stoddard of NASCAR is an executive producer, along with Michael Polaire and Dan Fellman.
The production shot at Charlotte Motor Speedway during the actual NASCAR Coca-Cola 600 and the Bank of America 500, as well as at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Six NASCAR stars pop up in non-driver cameo roles in the film.
Fingerprint Releasing, founded by Soderbergh, is piloted by Fellman, former longtime head of distribution for Warner Bros. In making Thursday’s announcement, Soderbergh said, “This is the result of 16 years of conversations I’ve had with Dan about creating a new distribution paradigm for star-driven, wide-release projects. With Logan Lucky I have the right movie, the right team and the right partner in Bleecker Street to test some personal theories I’ve accumulated. It’s put-up-or-shut-up time.”
Andrew Karpen, CEO of Bleecker Street, added: “We’re thrilled to be working with Steven and the team at Fingerprint to break new ground and bring such an exciting film to audiences this summer.”
The deal was negotiated by Karpen with Avy Eschenasy on behalf of Bleecker Street and Ken Meyer on behalf of the filmmakers.
Glen Basner of FilmNation is handling international sales. FilmNation previously handled Magic Mike and Side Effects for Soderbergh

“maybe you can afford to wait. maybe for you there’s a tomorrow. maybe for you there’s one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much time you can bathe in it, roll around it, let it slide like coins through your fingers. so much time you can waste it. but for some of us there’s only today. and the truth is, you never really know.”
Bleecker Street will distribute Steven Soderbergh’s “Logan Lucky” in partnership with Fingerprint Releasing, the director’s newly formed entertainment company. The heist comedy stars Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Riley Keough, Hilary Swank, Seth MacFarlane, Katie Holmes, and a platinum-coiffed Daniel Craig. It also marks Soderbergh’s return to the big screen after a four-year hiatus, during which he flirted with retirement, did a spot of painting, and oversaw the very bloody medical drama “The Knick” for Cinemax.
The film is about two brothers Jimmy (Tatum) and Clyde Logan (Driver) who set out to execute an elaborate robbery during a widely watched car race. “Logan Lucky” will hit theaters on Aug. 18. It will face off against “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” and “The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature.”
The film also stars Katherine Waterston, Dwight Yoakam, Sebastian Stan, David Denman, Macon Blair, Jack Quaid, and Brian Gleeson. The original screenplay is by Rebecca Blunt. Gregory Jacobs, Mark Johnson, Reid Carolin, and Tatum served as producers. Zane Stoddard of Nascar is an executive producer, along with Michael Polaire and Dan Fellman.
Fingerprint Releasing, created by Soderbergh, is piloted by Fellman, who oversaw distribution at Warner Bros. for decades.

“How do you think I met your father? We both come from good, strong, Rittenhouse familes. And that almost makes you royalty.“
There’s a lot we don’t know about Rittenhouse, but the way Lucy’s mom phrased this makes me think that they’re the sort of people who believe in ‘carrying on the bloodlines’. Could you imagine if that was being planned for Lucy’s eventual induction into Rittenhouse (maybe pre-time travelling shenanigans?)
I need Lucy reacting to that horror and Wyatt freaking out when she tells him.
Logan Lerman will star in new movie with John Hawkes, Sarah Bolger - End of Sentence. In the director’s debut Elfara Adalsteinsa.
Story, which is written by Beautiful Boy’s Michael Armbruster, follows a father and son reluctantly embarking on an eventful and emotionally fraught road-trip to Ireland, honoring the request of their late wife and mother. Adalsteins produces through his production banner Berserk Films, alongside Samson Films’ David Collins, Palomar Pictures’ Joni Sighvatsson and Berserk Films’ Gudrun Edda Thorhannesdottir. Eva Marie Daniels and Olga Segura are exec producing.
Thorsten Schumacher’s Rocket Science is handling worldwide sales for the title and launching it in Cannes this week.
End of Sentence sees down and out young ex-con Sean (Lerman) and his uptight but well-intentioned father Frank (Hawkes) thrown together on a road trip to scatter the ashes of their late mother and wife, Anna. Careening from Alabama to Ireland, the pair are forced to confront the flaws in their relationship and find a common ground. Between a disconcerting Irish wake, the surfacing of an old flame, the pick-up of the intriguing hitchhiker Jewel (Bolger) and plenty of unresolved issues, the journey becomes a little more than father and son had bargained for.
1) Why did preventing Jessica’s killer from being born not prevent her death?
2) In Season 2, are there plans to substantially advance (or wrap up) the storylines regarding Amy, Jessica, and Flynn’s wife and daughter?
3) We know that Rufus and Lucy were selected for the Time Team for specific reasons. Why was Wyatt picked? I would have thought that his emotional baggage (i.e. Jessica’s death, the mission where he was the lone survivor) would make the authorities decide that he’s unsuitable for time traveling, since he has things that he would go back and change, if given access to a time machine.
4) Any hints about how the characters’ personal stories will develop in Season 2?
5) The birth years (and therefore hard limits on what time periods they can travel to) of Lucy, Rufus, and Flynn have been established. Can tell us the birth dates for Wyatt, Jiya, Anthony, and Emma?
ShawnRyanTV: 1. Perhaps that wasn’t her killer, or perhaps someone else would’ve killed her instead? 2. TBD 3. Perhaps Wyatt’s emotional baggage is part of the reason they chose him. 4. Not until we spend more time in the Writers’ Room. 5. LOL. Not off the top of my head.
