EW gets down and dirty with the gang from 'Horrible Bosses 2'

In 2011’s Horrible Bosses, Nick (Jason Bateman), Kurt (Jason Sudeikis), and Dale (Charlie Day) were hapless drones plotting revenge upon their sadistic overlords. But in the sequel (rated R, out Nov. 26), the trio go into business for themselves

Their plans to mass-produce an all-in-one bathing apparatus—the Shower Buddy—go astray when a SkyMall-style marketer (Christoph Waltz) and his selfish son (Chris Pine) set them up for ruin. There’s a kidnapping, a car chase, and the return of some familiar sinister faces: Kevin Spacey as the emasculating ex-boss, Jennifer Aniston as the sexually omnivorous dentist, and Jamie Foxx as “crime consultant” Motherf—er Jones. The trio discover that even the self-employed can be their own worst enemies.

With the setting sun casting gold and pink light across the palm-lined streets below, Bateman, Day, and Sudeikis sit down on the rooftop of the Beverly Hilton Hotel to chat. Although they’re technically on the clock, things get Not Safe for Work fast. READ FULL STORY

Steven Spielberg mourns Mike Nichols: 'For me, 'The Graduate' was life-altering'

Steven Spielberg is among those mourning his friend and fellow filmmaker Mike Nichols—the Oscar-winning director of The Graduate, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Catch-22, Primary Colors, and Charlie Wilson’s War, who has died at the age of 83.

Spielberg, who has known Nichols for decades, released a statement calling Nichols “a friend, a muse, a mentor, one of America’s all time greatest film and stage directors, and one of the most generous people I have ever known.”

Actors usually end up sharing the screen with countless colleagues over a lifetime, but being a director is a solitary profession. One film typically has one filmmaker. But that community is just as tight-knit off set, especially since it is such a relatively small profession. Directors may not work together, but they all know each other.

The director of Raiders of the Lost Ark and Schindler’s List said seeing Nichols’ early work helped shape his own ideas about what filmmaking could be.

John Lasseter will direct 'Toy Story 4' for 2017

One word, John Lasseter: Plastics.

The Pixar chief who changed the animation game with his innovative use of computer technology in 1995’s Toy Story will return to the directing chair to make a fourth movie about the adventures of Woody, Buzz, and the gang, Walt Disney CEO Robert Iger announced Tuesday.

The film is set to hit theaters in June 16, 2017, and in a somewhat surprising twist it will be written by Rashida Jones, formerly of NBC’s Parks and Recreation, and her screenwriting partner Will McCormack (who penned the 2012 indie romantic comedy Celeste and Jesse Forever.)

The story was conceived, however, by the Pixar brain trust: Lasseter, Finding Nemo‘s Andrew Stanton, Up and Monsters Inc.‘s Pete Docter, and and Toy Story 3‘s Lee Unkrich.

EW's 'Fabulous Baker Boys' reunion: The stars all sing a different tune

Truth is like a good jazz standard: a different version emerges from everyone who sings it. When you start reminiscing with the stars of The Fabulous Baker Boys 25 years later, a kind of three-part harmony emerges. Everyone hits a different note, but somehow they’re still in sync. “We get all mixed up. We have different versions,” Jeff Bridges says. “But when we talk, we hash it out.”

In Entertainment Weekly‘s annual reunions issue, we bring together Jeff, his big brother, Beau, and Michelle Pfeiffer, who plays the torch singer who both energizes and threatens to destroy their piano-dueling partnership. The 1989 film, which earned four Oscar nominations, is the only time this trio teamed up on film.

After a quarter century, their memories are a little fuzzy—although everyone is sure his or her version is the correct one. READ FULL STORY

Fox planning Channing Tatum 'Gambit' film

Fox is putting some kinetic energy into a new Gambit movie, with Channing Tatum set to star as the card-slinging mutant, sources confirm to EW.

The 21 Jump Street star has long been linked to the character, who has the power to imbue any object with a dose of explosive power. (His weapon of choice is a deck of playing cards.) He gave an interview to MTV stating, “Gambit’s the only X-Man I ever loved. He’s the most un-X-Man X-Man that’s ever been an X-Man … he loves women and drinkin’ and smokin’.”

The actor and the character also share a background as Southern gentlemen. Tatum was born in Alabama, while Gambit, a.k.a. Remy LeBeau is a cajun from bayou country.

'Showrunners' doc: What happens when tempers flare on hit TV shows

SHOWRUNNERS.jpg

In movies, if the cast and filmmaker don’t get along, at least there’s an end date. Television is a different story — specifically, it’s a long form story. Discord on set can last for years if you’re not careful.

So how do you solve that trouble once it starts? That’s one question explored in the new documentary Showrunners: The Art of Running a TV Show – which debuts today in limited release and is also available on demand. The film, directed by Des Doyle, takes fans behind the scenes of hit TV shows such as Sons of Anarchy, Boardwalk Empire, The Big Bang Theory and The Good Wife, putting their creators (and their headaches) in the spotlight.
