Casting Net: Jamie Foxx to play Mike Tyson

• Jamie Foxx will reportedly play Mike Tyson in an untitled biopic. Terence Winter is set to write. Rick Yorn, Foxx’s manager, will produce. The project is still in the works and is currently without a studio. Though HBO released 1995’s Tyson, this is the first feature film to follow the controversial boxer. [Variety]

• Dakota Johnson will star in the Luca Guadagnino-directed A Bigger Splash. Tilda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes have signed on as well, and Michael Costigan will produce. The film, based on the 1969 French crime drama La Piscine, follows a triangle that develops between a couple and a younger woman on the couple’s vacation; it doesn’t end well. David Kajganich is writing the script. Shooting begins in Italy next month. [Variety] READ FULL STORY

The 'Fifty Shades of Grey' trailer has arrived

Fifty-Shades-Of-Grey.jpg

In the first trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey, Dakota Johnson is a mousy girl with a notepad who makes an impression on Jamie Dornan’s laser-gazed billionaire Christian Grey. If I recall correctly, his corporation puts her bookstore out of business and they become unlikely online pen-pals after meeting in a chat room. And then they have lots of sex. The end.

Enjoy. READ FULL STORY

Video: Lucy Hale recalls awkward 'Fifty Shades of Grey' audition

This Valentine’s Day, Fifty Shades of Grey hits theaters with Dakota Johnson occupying the lead role of Anastasia Steele alongside Jamie Dornan as title character Christian Grey. The steamy S&M flick is currently in post-production, so it seems odd to recall a time without Johnson as its leading lady. But before Johnson was set in stone, there were a number of young actresses rumored to be vying for the role, including Pretty Little Liars‘ Lucy Hale.

Hale sat down with MTV News to discuss her audition (see clip below). In a word, Hale describes it as being “awkward.”

New 'Fifty Shades' pic shows Ana kissing Christian -- PHOTO

First there was the filming photo of Christian (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia (Dakota Johnson) having a cup of tea (shockingly, not a euphemism), and the newest filming candid from Fifty Shades of Grey shows the actors embracing while Ana goes for a kiss outside what is likely Grey Enterprises. (For those that have remained blissfully unaware thus far, that’s the company where Christian is CEO.)

What’s next? Well, considering the subject matter, perhaps soon the behind-the-scenes photos won’t be quite so PG…as fans of the series are no doubt hoping.

Fifty Shades of Grey, directed by Sam Taylor-Wood, will be in theaters Feb. 13, 2015.

Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson film hot, steamy 'Fifty Shades' scene -- PHOTO

Get it? Because of the tea?

Okay, so maybe this first photo from the set of Fifty Shades of Grey pictures stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson filming the movie’s least explicit scene. Still, seeing it should be exciting to fans — who know that as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele sit for a cup of tea at the Portland Coffee House, the story’s heroine is thinking some very dirty thoughts:

“I surreptitiously gaze at him from beneath my lashes as he stands in line waiting to be served. I could watch him all day… he’s tall, broad-shouldered, and slim, and the way those pants hang from his hips… Oh my. Once or twice he runs his long, graceful fingers through his now dry but still disorderly hair. Hmm… I’d like to do that. The thought comes unbidden into my mind, and my face flames. I bite my lip and stare down at my hands again not liking where my wayward thoughts are headed.”

Oh my indeed!

'Need for Speed' trailer: Aaron Paul on stunts and pushing his own limits -- VIDEO

Need for Speed might be based on a video game, but director Scott Waugh wasn’t interested in digital representations for his feature film. Nearly everything you see on-screen is real, whether it’s a car jumping a medium or flying off a bridge. What else would you expect from a veteran stuntman turned director?

The wild card was getting an actor to sign up for that.

When Waugh first approached Aaron Paul to star in his first post-Breaking Bad film, he didn’t mince words: “I told him, If you really want to do this movie, I need to teach you how to drive. And I’m not talking straight. I’m talking 150 miles an hour drifting,” Waugh told EW in October.

Driving school came next, and Paul was a quick study.”My first true day on the film was out at the race track. By the end of the first day I was doing 360s. Then the next couple of days were learning how to trick around corners or doing reverse 180s,” Paul said.

Dakota Johnson on 'Fifty Shades:' 'I really understand it'

It was day one of trying on her new brown locks as Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey, a role that could come to define up-and-coming actress Dakota Johnson. The 24-year-old daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson was approaching her first photo shoot and interview for EW’s cover story in a very relaxed manner: joking with her future on-screen boyfriend Jamie Dornan; snapping photos for author EL James who was visiting the set, and trying to stay away from the tempting desserts that filled the craft services table.

The actress did acknowledge that it was a bit strange to embody a character for a role she hasn’t even had a chance to rehearse. “At first it felt like what are we doing because we haven’t done anything yet: How are we supposed to be in character when I don’t even know what’s going on,” said Johnson about the photo shoot. “But then everyone chilled out and that was good.”

Jamie Dornan on Christian Grey role: 'I don't fear it' -- EXCLUSIVE

In a matter of weeks, Jamie Dornan will suit up to play the damaged billionaire Christian Grey — opposite Dakota Johnson’s Anastasia Steele — in the adaptation of  E L James’ bestselling novel Fifty Shades of Grey. The Northern Irish actor landed the role through a circuitous route, replacing Sons of Anarchy actor Charlie Hunnam after he dropped out of the film in mid-October. In this week’s cover story, he spoke with EW exclusively about his trek through the audition process and how he’s prepping his body for the part.

It’s the most high-profile role of Dornan’s career, one he’s approaching both rationally and with a great degree of excitement. “I certainly don’t fear it,” Dornan says. “I already got a glimpse into working with [director] Sam [Taylor-Johnson] at the test, and I’d met [co-star] Dakota [Johnson] by then. So I had a glimpse into how I felt it would be if I got the part. None of it scared me.”

Dornan initially performed an audition on tape for the first round of casting but didn’t progress to a face-to-face meeting until Hunnam bailed last month. “You know, one door closes, another opens,” Dornan says. “When he dropped out, I didn’t instantly think, ‘Oh here we go, maybe I should cancel that holiday,’ but I did feel that maybe we’d revisit the idea of me.”

Revisit they did. Dornan was flown out to Los Angeles for an intense, day-long audition opposite Dakota Johnson, who had landed her role in early September. The two re-enacted the initial interview scene when Ana first meets Christian at his spacious office in Seattle, followed by the climactic scene near the end of the book.
