Brad Pitt to star and Robert Zemeckis to direct a sweeping romantic thriller from writer Steve Knight, to be produced by Graham King for Paramount pictures, GK films and New Regency

Paramount Pictures, GK Films and New Regency today announced that Brad Pitt will star, and Robert Zemeckis (“FLIGHT,” “FORREST GUMP”) will direct, an original story by Steve Knight (“THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY,” “DIRTY PRETTY THINGS”) to be produced by Graham King (“RANGO,” “THE DEPARTED”), who developed the project, alongside Zemeckis and Steve Starkey (“FLIGHT,” “REAL STEEL”).
The epic story will be produced through King’s GK Films banner with Jack Rapke (“FLIGHT,” “REAL STEEL”), Knight, Patrick McCormick (“BLACK MASS”) and Denis O’Sullivan (“THE 5thWAVE,” “THE YOUNG VICTORIA”) serving as executive producers.

Zemeckis’ credits at Paramount Pictures include the 1994 blockbuster “FORREST GUMP,” for which he won the Academy Award® for Best Director. The groundbreaking film grossed $677 million worldwide and won six Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Actor for star Tom Hanks. In 2012, the studio and Zemeckis partnered on the critically-lauded, live-action thriller “FLIGHT,” which starred Denzel Washington and received two Academy Award nominations. Presently, Zemeckis is in post-production on “THE WALK,” starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, slated for an October 2015 release.
King and Knight are also partnered on the action-thriller “THE RED CIRCLE,” a remake of the classic French film “LE CERCLE ROUGE” reset in Hong Kong. Knight wrote the script and King is producing under GK Films.

“The King of Comedy” starring Robert De Niro to Close Tribeca Film Festival

Still as groundbreaking as it was 30 years ago,Martin Scorcese’s newly restored “The King of Comedy” will close the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival.
The Tribeca Festival (TFF), presented by American Express®, is thrilled have Martin Scorsese’s The King of Comedy, restored in association with The Film Foundation, Regency Enterprises and Twentieth Century Fox, as the closing night film of the 12th annual Festival on Saturday, April 27 at Tribeca BMCC PAC.
Directed by Martin Scorsese, written by Paul D. Zimmerman, produced by Arnon Milchan, and starring Robert De Niro, Jerry Lewis, Diahnne Abbott and Sandra Bernhard, The King of Comedy was originally released in 1983. This darkly funny film was ahead of its time—most notably for its groundbreaking commentary on the reality TV culture and the fine line between fame and notoriety.
“I was a big fan of the script and was very excited to do it with Marty and happy that we finally made it. The fact that it’s been restored (hard to believe so many years have passed) is even all the better, and I can’t wait to see it on our closing night,” said Robert De Niro.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Top film of the weekend was once again

As I have been warning about for months, 10,000 releases all opened in this very weekend, with another 5,000 coming on Tuesday. Let’s just get right into it. The top film of the weekend was once again The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (review), but it actually took a massive dive from last weekend. The film earned $36 million, or down 59%.
It’s tough to compare this to the previous Lord of the Rings films because they all opened on *this* weekend and had the unbeatable holiday cushion to keep them afloat. Still, the film has $149 million in ten days, or well below the respective ten-day totals of The Two Towers ($168 million) and Return of the King ($190 million) and very much behind where they were at the end of their second weekends (IE – 12 days as they all opened on Wednesdays – $168 million and $200 million respectively). It’s not bombing, but it’s already proving that it’s not the box office second-coming ala Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace. Come what may, just with this year’s Spider-Man reboot, what was once the biggest franchise of all is now just another large fish swimming in the blockbuster pond.

“Zero Dark Thirty” wins Best Film from National Board of Review – OSCARS

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Is “Zero Dark Thirty” going to be this year’s “The Social Network,” or “The King’s Speech?”
Kathryn Bigelow’s searing, comprehensive docu-drama detailing the impossible hunt for Osama Bin Laden was named Best Film by the National Board of Review today, days after the New York Film Critics Circle handed the film the same award. (Bigelow, for the record, took Best Director from both groups, as well.) These are tremendous feathers in the cap of a film that expects to compete for Oscar gold as the campaign for nominations kicks into high gear.
But as you likely recall, David Fincher’s “The Social Network” also collected most – if not all – of the pre-Oscar critics love … only to be shut down (for the most part) by Tom Hooper’s “The King’s Speech” two seasons ago.
Hooper could halt another critical darling if his “Les Miserables” picks up steam. The film was named to the NBR’s Top 10 list, along with a bevy of titles we’ll list below.
At the moment, though, the frontrunner in the ongoing awards race is shaping up to be Bigelow’s masterful “Zero Dark Thirty.” Whether that works in the film’s favor or not remains to be seen.
And the Oscar race rolls on …
Here are today’s National Board of Review winners:
Best Film: ZERO DARK THIRTY

Nicki Minaj goes off on Mariah Carey during ‘American Idol’ judging

HollywoodNews.com: There were rumors that Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey weren’t getting along on the set of ‘American Idol,’ and it seems that those rumors might be true.
While the two recently denied any feuding, Minaj was recently caught on tape getting a bit fed up with Carey, states TMZ. “I told them I’m not f*ckin’ putting up with her f**kin’ highness over there,” Minaj is heard saying.
“I’m not gonna sit here every f**king minute to have you come down and harass me every minute everyday,” Minaj continued.
It is rumored that the two were arguing over a contestant’s performance. While Minaj continued to complain, Carey allegedly responded but it wasn’t caught on tape.
Executives with the show reportedly stopped auditions for the day after the blow up in order to keep the two under control.
Do you think these two will ever get along?
