        Jamie Dornan and Holliday Grainger to Star in John Patrick Shanley’s ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’

        Jamie Dornan and Holliday Grainger to Star in John Patrick Shanley’s ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’
        Jamie Dornan (“Fifty Shades of Grey”) and Holliday Grainger (“Animals”) have been tapped to star in John Patrick Shanley’s romance “Wild Mountain Thyme,” an adaptation of his Tony-nominated 2014 play “Outside Mulingar.”

        HanWay Films has acquired the international sales rights and will commence sales at Cannes, with CAA Media Finance handling the North American rights.

        “Wild Mountain Thyme,” Shanley’s love letter to his ancestral homeland, is set against the breath-taking landscapes of rural Ireland, where everyone is half mad with loneliness or love, and the weather is terrible. Dornan and Grainger will play obstinate star-crossed lovers, whose families are caught up in a feud over a hotly contested patch of land that separates their two farms.

        Acclaimed playwright, screenwriter and director Shanley is the author of more than 23 plays, including his 2005 Tony and Pulitzer-winning drama “Doubt,

        ‘Warrior’: Inside the ‘Hateful Eight’-Inspired Episode That Pits Kung-Fu Fighters Against Gunslinging Outlaws

        ‘Warrior’: Inside the ‘Hateful Eight’-Inspired Episode That Pits Kung-Fu Fighters Against Gunslinging Outlaws
        [Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers for “Warrior” Season 1, Episode 5, “The Blood and the Shit.”]

        Cinemax’s new Western action drama “Warrior” is adding to the renaissance of Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight.” Not only has his 2015 film been recut as a limited series for Netflix, but it also inspired the May 3 episode of “Warrior,” in which disparate groups of people become embroiled in a violent saloon shootout during a stagecoach stopover.

        The episode marks a departure for “Warrior,” which is set in the 19th century Tong Wars in San Francisco’s Chinatown. Directed by Kevin Tancharoen (“The Flash”) and written by Kenneth Lin (“House of Cards”), the episode’s concept came from showrunner Jonathan Tropper, who wanted to “open up the world” of the series at its midway point.

        “When Jonathan and I first spoke … we talked about a lot of Bruce Lee movies, but also just pulp films,” said Tancharoen. “Lots of Tarantino, a little [Robert] Rodriguez here and there.

        ‘Tuca and Bertie’ Voice Cast Guide: From Tiffany Haddish to Richard E. Grant

        ‘Tuca and Bertie’ Voice Cast Guide: From Tiffany Haddish to Richard E. Grant
        Led by Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong, “Tuca and Bertie” sports a truly interesting voice cast with some genuine surprises in the mix, including Oscar nominees, Emmy winners, and British TV favorites. The animated adventures of two best bird friends, created by Lisa Hanawalt, takes some sad and dark turns, but the actors prove more than capable of handling the challenges, bringing out the inherent humanity in their animal creations on screen.

        The large ensemble plays such a wide range of characters that it’s difficult to identify every single character that every single actor plays (especially since a number of them double up on roles). Beyond the cast members specified below for individual roles, credited cast members include Emily Axford, Shamir Bailey, Kate Berlant, Cole Escola, Jermaine Fowler, Karen Graci, Georgia Hardstark, Karen Kilgariff, Betsy Sodaro, Sheila Vand, Baron Vaughn, and David Wain, with Hanawalt and executive producer Raphael Bob-Waksberg also contributing voices.

        ‘Twilight Zone’: DeWanda Wise on the Greek Tragedy of Her Mission to Mars

        ‘Twilight Zone’: DeWanda Wise on the Greek Tragedy of Her Mission to Mars
        [Editor’s Note: The following article contains spoilers from “The Twilight Zone” Season 1, Episode 6, “Six Degrees of Freedom.”]

        Original “Twilight Zone” creator Rod Serling was so fascinated by the possibility of space and aliens that his very first space-adjacent episode aired two years before the first man even escaped Earth’s atmosphere. Now, Jordan Peele’s revival of the series carries on that storytelling tradition with the episode “Six Degrees of Freedom,” in which five astronauts blast off to colonize Mars.

        DeWanda Wise, best known for starring in Spike Lee’s Netflix series “She’s Gotta Have It,” is a longtime fan of “Twilight Zone” and had even asked her agents specifically if she would be able to land the show. Her favorite episode is “To Serve Man,” the classic entry in which seemingly benevolent aliens land on Earth, improve the lives of humans, and then are revealed to actually eat the people they were helping.

        When Netflix’s ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’ Went Interactive, Editing Met Accounting

        When Netflix enticed “Black Mirror” creators Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones to make their first interactive non-children’s episode, little did they realize what a complicated rabbit hole they were falling into. With “Bandersnatch,” though, life imitated art, as they created not only the ultimate “Black Mirror” story about the dark side of tech, but also a landmark achievement for Netflix with all sorts of future interactive programming possibilities.

        And what a tangled web it was to edit “Bandersnatch,” which had to compellingly satisfy as both a “Black Mirror” entry and an interactive journey. In “Bandersnatch,” viewers decide the fate of a young programmer from 1984, Stefan (Fionn Whitehead), who adapts a choose-your-own adventure fantasy novel into a video game. Along the way, Stefan collides with his widower father, Peter (Craig Parkinson), a legendary video game creator/mentor, Colin (Will Poulter), and several subsidiary characters. And each choice the viewer makes becomes progressively more dangerous,

        Luxembourgian director Anne Fontaine is an icon of Francophone cinema, with a 25-year filmmaking career glutted with César Award nominations and festival debuts.

        Jacki Weaver Responds To Anjelica Huston’s Snide Remarks About New Film ‘Poms’: “She Can Go F*ck Herself”

        Yesterday, we reported about a new interview where Oscar-winning actress Anjelica Huston pulled no punches when talking about the #MeToo movement, specifically how it involved filmmakers Roman Polanski and Woody Allen. You would think that would be enough to get the film industry talking, but in fact, it was another off-hand comment that Huston made that seems to have struck a chord with actress Jacki Weaver.

        Rhea Seehorn, the Beating Heart of ‘Better Call Saul,’ Accepts Her Uncertain Fate
        To all of those individuals who’ve experienced the heartbreak of falling in love and having to wait for new episodes of a weekly television series in this age of binge-watching and streaming on-demand, Rhea Seehorn feels your pain.

        The actress and unsung hero of AMC’s “Better Call Saul” told IndieWire in a recent interview that viewers might be surprised by how similar her experience of discovery with the show mirrors their own. “We don’t get our scripts in advance. We don’t get an outline. So I’m finding out things at the same pace that they are – weekly,” Seehorn explained.

        What that really means is that Seehorn, like the audience, is unraveling the mystery of who her character – Kim Wexler – is on a week-to-week basis, just like everyone else.

        As the series heads into its fifth season, we know Wexler is a literal bootstrapper. A small-town

        Review: Afterwards—Olivier Assayas's "Non-Fiction"

        Discussions of eternal virtues between characters with self-made problems, their self-articulated solutions and delusionary implementations, the real pitter-patter of the intelligentsia, fill up Non-Fiction, the new film from Olivier Assayas. Now the doyen of widely distributed art-house cinema, Assayas’s long and protean career has covered the waterfront of cinematic genres: the period piece (Sentimental Destinies), the inside-showbiz drama (Irma Vep and Clouds of Sils Maria), youthful romance (Cold Water and Something in the Air), the ghost story (Personal Shopper), a scuzzy espionage thriller (Demonlover), and, with Late August, Early September and Non-Fiction, two takes on the literary world. This genre globetrotting is indicative of Assayas’s lifelong closeness with cinema. Born to a screenwriter father in 1955, Assayas began as critic for Cahiers du cinéma in the late-70s and became a scriptwriter for André Techiné in the mid-80s before embarking on his long career directing features. His worldview

        ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Director Says Robert Downey Jr. Deserves An Oscar “More Than Anyone In The Last 40 Years” For His McU Work

        **Slight spoilers for “Avengers: Endgame”**

        There’s no denying that what Marvel Studios has done over the last 11 years is unprecedented, and likely never to happen again. The studio has released 22 films, made over $20 billion, and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. And arguably, you can say that the entire success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes down to one man. No, not Kevin Feige, but actually Robert Downey, Jr., who launched the entire thing with “Iron Man.” With that in mind, “Avengers: Endgame” director Joe Russo thinks that Rdj deserves some awards recognition for this accomplishment.

        ‘Wild Rose’: Jessie Buckley Soars In A Rousing, ‘Billy Elliott’-Like Tale Of A Star Being Born [Tribeca Review]

        Inspiring and triumphant, the music drama “Wild Rose” serves as a foot-stomping rebuke to the exasperating phonies who claim to love all music, “except rap and country.” From its opening moments, this stirring musical drama about an aspiring singer rocks, kicking off with a southern-fried cover of Scottish band Primal Scream’s “Country Girl” and running through songs originally sung by Wynonna Judd, Emmylou Harris, Chris Stapleton, and Patty Griffin.

        Future of Tiff’s Main Theater In Question: Festival Does Not Expect Impact for ‘Number of Years’

        The Toronto International Film Festival’s most recognizable venue might be getting a new look — in a few years. While a recent article on the local news website blogTO stoked fears that one of the festival’s primary theaters, the centrally located Scotiabank Theatre, will soon transform into a mixed-use building (read: no more Scotiabank Theatre), a festival representative assures fest fans that they are already planning for changes that may or may not materialize in the coming years.

        Earlier this week, blogTO shared that the venue’s current owner, the Canadian real estate investment firm RioCan, “has applied to the city for a zoning by-law amendment in order to construct two mixed-use buildings on the southwest corner of John and Richmond Streets, right where Michaels and the famous Scotiabank Theatre currently stand.” The outlet added that, “architectural plans published by the city this week show that RioCan intends to

        ‘The Place Of No Words’: Mark Webber Crafts A Heartfelt Fantasy About Death, Life & Children [Tribeca Review]

        Death will come for all of us at some point, but communicating the ideas of impermanence to children is a whole other scary, frightening bag. “Where do we go when we die?” That’s the concern of actor/director/writer Mark Webber’s personal and moving, “The Place of No Words,” an imaginative, funny, and sad examination of conceptualizing death to a child, that can really only come from a tortured parent’s perspective.

        ‘Les Miserables’: David Oyelowo Took His Role as Javert More Seriously than Dominic West First Realized — Watch
        Playing a character driven by obsession is not an easy task. When that role is driven by an all-consuming, dogged pursuit of another person, it can make for a tricky relationship on set.

        In the case of the recent TV adaptation of “Les Misérables,” Jean Valjean actor Dominic West was a little confused by David Oyelowo’s standoffishness in the role of Javert. In a Masterpiece interview, West talked about some of their initial reactions during production.

        “At first, I thought David was rather unfriendly, but I didn’t realize he was being in character!” West said. “He’s an amazing actor, but he’s an amazing human being, in terms of his discipline. I’m a big admirer.”

        The distance that the actors had from each other while the cameras were rolling speaks not only to Oyelowo’s acting techniques, but the underlying driving force of the novel. Though
