'Life' remembers Ingrid Bergman's landmark career

Cinephiles and casual film fans alike will have some familiarity with Ingrid Bergman’s large body of work. The actress is perhaps most widely remembered for her starring role opposite Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, but Bergman’s more than 40-year career is replete with memorable—and award-winning—roles. On the anniversary of her passing, Life has compiled a gallery of Bergman to celebrate her career.

In tracking Bergman’s time in the spotlight, which included three Academy Awards and appearances in films like For Whom the Bell TollsJoan of Arc, and GaslightLife recalls a 1943 interview with the actress in which she said, “I am an actress and I am interested in acting, not in making money.”

Bergman acted until late in her life, frequently appearing on television and onstage in addition to her work on film. But her time in the spotlight also put her personal life front and center for many of her fans.

Head over to Life‘s remembrance of the actress to learn more about her personal and professional life and see photos of her work.

The Dowdle brothers talk about shooting their horror-thriller 'As Above So Below' in the Paris catacombs

As-above-so-below

Ah, Paris. City of love, romance—and a terrifying network of skull-filled catacombs where filmmaking brothers Drew and John Erick Dowdle shot their new horror-thriller As Above So Below. “It is an extremely creepy place,” says director John Erick (Quarantine, Devil). “It really tweaks at the mind. You go down there and your pulse slows. It’s really weird.”

'X-Men: First Class' writers, Steve Carell join Looney Tunes 'Acme' project

While Bugs Bunny fans eagerly await news about whether Space Jam 2 will ever happen, another movie based on the Looney Tunes world is moving forward with a pair of writers and one of its leads.

EW can confirm The Hollywood Reporter‘s original report that the writers behind 2011’s X-Men: First Class and the upcoming Power Rangers reboot, Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, have signed on to write the untitled Acme film. Not much is known about the project’s plot, though it is expected to be a hybrid of live action and animation with Steve Carell in a starring role.

THR also reports that the writers of Carell’s Crazy, Stupid, Love, Glenn Ficarra, and John Requa, are in early negotiations to direct the project.

The Acme company is known in the Looney Tunes universe for developing ridiculous and impractical items most famously used by Wile E. Coyote in his endless pursuit of the Road Runner. Whether the two characters appear in the film, one of Coyote’s go-to weapons, an Acme-branded anvil, will surely make at least one cameo.

'Underworld' reboot scares up screenwriter

Before the Twilight franchise swept the box office, the Underworld series had a monopoly on the cinematic war between vampires and werewolves. Led by Kate Beckinsale, the original 2003 film spawned three sequels—and now it appears the series is getting rebooted.

As The Hollywood Reporter originally reported, the studio behind Underworld, Lakeshore Entertainment, has hired Cory Goodman to pen the reboot’s script. Goodman’s previous work includes the vampire-human war depicted in Priest, as well as the upcoming Vin Diesel film The Last Witch Hunter.

The last film in the series, Underworld: Awakening, debuted in 2012 and went on to become the franchise’s highest earner at the worldwide box office by a wide margin. But despite that recent success, Lakeshore should be sure to choose the reboot’s star wisely: The only Underworld film not to feature Beckinsale, 2009’s Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, finished its run as the worst-performing entry in the franchise.

Steve Carell replaces Zach Galifianakis in 'Freeheld'

Peter Sollett’s upcoming drama Freeheld is switching out one comedian for another, as Steve Carell is set to take over for a role previously filled by Zach Galifiankis.

Deadline reports that Carell will play Steven Goldstein in the film, which is based on a 2007 documentary of the same name. The documentary follows Laurel Hester’s battle against the New Jersey’s Domestic Partnership Act. Hester sought to amend the act in an effort to grant pension benefits to her domestic partner Stacie Andree. Carell’s character Goldstein, founder of the civil rights organization Garden State Equality, was a proponent for the cause.

The film also stars Ellen Page and Carell’s former Crazy, Stupid, Love co-star Julianne Moore. Freeheld has no release date yet, but Carell can next be seen taking a more dramatic turn in the buzzed-about Foxcatcher.
