• Tom Hiddleston will star (and sing) as Hank Williams in an upcoming biopic about the country legend. I Saw The Light will be directed by Marc Abraham (Flash of Genius), who adapted the script from Colin Escott’s biography of Williams. Quite different than his role in The Avengers, Hiddleston will sing from the entire Williams catalog, with songs like “Hey, Good Lookin’,” after the rights were secured through a deal with Sony ATV. The film will follow Williams’ rise to fame before dying of heart failure at age 29. [Deadline] READ FULL STORY
Tag: Demi Moore (1-8 of 8)
Kevin Hart is ready — and I mean bursting at the seams — to be a sex symbol, and he may get his wish in the remake of About Last Night.
The ever-energetic comic gushed to EW recently while filming on the downtown Los Angeles set of his movie, which modernizes the 1986 original starring Rob Lowe and Demi Moore, based on the David Mamet play. Hart plays Bernie, a sidekick role inhabited by James Belushi in the original, who is friends with lead heartthrob Michael Ealy. Joy Bryant also stars, and Regina Hall plays Hart’s hot-cold love interest. The movie’s now in post-production.
“Being a comedian, I’m very clean cut in the roles that I’ve had thus far. This was actually a role that gave me an opportunity to be a little different,” Hart told EW. “I’m filthy, filthy to the point where my language is unacceptable, my opinion is very, I guess you could say, I’m outspoken, but about the wrong topics, … and I have sex in this movie, which is great! I’ve never had sex in a film. And the fact that I’m having sex is going to make me a sex symbol. I see it all. This is a big thing for me. … Ladies, you get to see my side profile!”

Filmmakers Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman tell EW that Sarah Jessica Parker has stepped into the role of feminist icon Gloria Steinem in the pornstar biopic Lovelace, replacing Demi Moore, who dropped out of the film this week.
It has been a unsettling couple of days for the film, which stars Amanda Seyfried as X-rated actress Linda Lovelace, who became a household name after her 1972 sex film Deep Throat went mainstream. Epstein and Friedman (Howl) announced Moore was joining the project on Jan. 2, but she had not yet shot any scenes for the movie. READ FULL STORY
Demi Moore is pulling out of the Linda Lovelace biopic Lovelace, her rep confirmed to EW today. Moore was slated to play women’s rights activist Gloria Steinem in the film. Earlier this afternoon, Moore reportedly entered a facility to recover from exhaustion after being rushed to the hospital Monday night.
It was announced that Moore would join the cast, which includes Amanda Seyfried, Adam Brody, and Sharon Stone, earlier this month. The Rob Epstein and Jerry Friedman-directed Lovelace, which follows the life of Deep Throat star and 1970s icon Linda Lovelace, began shooting in December.
Anthony Breznican contributed to this report.
When it comes to teenagers, timing is everything. Those fickle, unbearable, and downright terrifying beings live an ever-changing world of trends and mood swings that you’d better be able to keep up with unless you want to them to take you out of their Top 8 on MySpace.
So it was questionable how the long-in-the-works Miley Cyrus teen dramedy LOL (that’s Laughing Out Loud for the laymen, or lame, man) would fare considering its been in the works since 2010, which is so 2008, which is so two-thousand and late. Or something. Judging from the international trailer for the flick, which is remake of the French film Laughing Out Loud, teens actually haven’t changed that much over the past few years in that they’re still spouting inane nonsense (“If he kisses you on the lips, it means he’s cool being your boyfriend,” “I feel so real with him,” “It’s so good to love someone so much it hurts”), they’re still upsetting their mothers with bad behavior and report cards (Mom here is played here by Demi Moore, who has dealt with her share of unruly youths before) and Miley is still getting in trouble for her questionable partying habits.

Amanda Seyfried is getting more company in the pornstar biopic Lovelace, with Demi Moore joining the cast to play feminist icon Gloria Steinem and Adam Brody costarring as the mustachioed X-rated actor Harry Reems. READ FULL STORY
People are always asking me if I ever get tired of going to the movies. The honest answer is: No, I never get tired of going. But I do get tired of second-tier mediocre Hollywood product, and when you’ve consumed enough of it to wear you out, there’s only one thing that can trump that malaise: stumbling onto a movie that’s fresh, smashing, and original, the kind of picture that reminds you of why you fell in love with movies in the first place. Twenty years ago this week, in the middle of July 1990, was I ever starving for that kind of movie! Entertainment Weekly was just five months old, and though I’d found some films I liked well enough, like the amusing dregs-of-the-Cold War submarine thriller The Hunt for Red October and the fake-brainy futuristic action bash Total Recall, I longed, in the infancy of my connection to my readers, to share something special and exciting. I wanted to announce to them, and to myself, why a magazine like EW existed.
And then the gods of the movie world smiled, and along came Ghost.
It was a yuppie love story, an afterlife thriller with the special-effects ping of good sci-fi, a tale of corporate chicanery, a rude and rowdy trash-meets-class comedy, an old-fashioned swoonfest powered by a haunting unchained melody — and all of this, somehow, from Jerry Zucker, one of the co-directors of Airplane! (He was working from a lively script by Bruce Joel Rubin, but Zucker directed it with extraordinary flair; he was like a happy screwball action painter.) Ghost soon became branded a romantic fantasy for “chicks,” a weeper with a guilty-pleasure label attached. But I knew that it was better than that. READ FULL STORY
Demi Moore plays a wife and mother in The Joneses, and “plays” is the operative word. Not only does Moore act the part of a character named Kate Jones in the thin satire opening this weekend, but Kate (if that’s even her real name) is herself a fiction, an imposter housewife played by an employee of an insidious marketing company. Accessorized with a fake husband (David Duchovny) and two fake young-adult children, our “Kate” has got a job to do: She and her photogenic all-American “family” must, by flaunting their enviable lifestyle, persuade everyone who ogles their beauty (as well as the beauty of their expensive cars, golf clubs, handbags, jewelry, dinnerware, etc.) to want to be just like the Joneses, and buy the same luxury goods. Gotta keep up!
Me, I’m less interested in the stuff the Joneses are peddling — square, gadgety goods, nothing really cool or stylish or worth buying unless you’ve got conservative tastes and live in a suburban gated community– than I am in the almost eerie sight of sleek, glossy, age-retardant Demi Moore on the job. We’ve known the actor for a quarter of a century now (St. Elmo’s Fire came out in 1985, Ghost in 1990); we’ve seen her naked in Vanity Fair. And yet there is something profoundly opaque and perpetually red-carpet-ready about her presentation. She’s Demi Moore (real-life woman nearing the age of 50) playing “Demi Moore” (tweeter, spokesmodel, beauty standard, brand) playing Demi Moore (veteran movie actor in an industry that fetishizes younger women) playing in a movie in which she plays a woman whose life is all veneer.
The result? I’m fascinated by the star — and confounded by her. I’m impressed with her — and rarely feel warmed by her performances. I admire her toned, unblemished loveliness and am convinced she lives in a universe that exists only in photos, movies, TV, and tweets. I never think, “I’ll have what she’s having.” But I do wonder what it’s like, for real, to play the role of Demi Moore with such labor-intensive attention to detail. So I keep coming back for more. Which means she’s made a sale, right?
