A Marlon Brando Biopic Is in the Works - Here Are 8 Smoldering Casting Ideas

Over a decade ago, Marlon Brando's best friend, George Englund, released a memoir about their enduring friendship titled The Way It's Never Been Done Before. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the memoir is officially being optioned by New Republic Pictures as a biopic about the life of the American actor, film director, and activist. The production company is the same one that's been behind critically acclaimed films such as Black Swan, Hacksaw Ridge, and more, so we have faith the story is in good hands. Once the project gets greenlit, the difficult task will be finding a classically handsome actor with the right depth, complexity, and furrowed eyebrows to portray the iconic star. As for that, we have a few ideas. Fortunately, there are plenty of babes who seem to have what it takes for this epic leading role. They make our job so easy. Related14 Books Becoming Movies

New to Streaming: ‘Princess Cyd,’ ‘Dawson City: Frozen Time,’ ‘mother!,’ ‘The Adventures of Tintin,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

The Adventures of Tintin (Steven Spielberg)

Leave it to Steven Spielberg to eke more thrills out of an animated feature than most directors could with every live-action tool at their disposal. The Adventures of Tintin is colored and paced like a child’s fantastical imagining of how Hergé’s comics might play in motion, and the extent to which viewers buy it depends largely on their willingness to give

Alice Eve (Star Trek: Into Darkness) has joined the cast of Marvel’s Iron Fist as… your guess is as good as ours.

Record Opener ‘Disaster Artist’ and ‘The Shape of Water’ Lead Specialty Box Office Surge

Record Opener ‘Disaster Artist’ and ‘The Shape of Water’ Lead Specialty Box Office Surge
The hits keep on coming. Both “The Disaster Artist” (A24) and “The Shape of Water” (Fox Searchlight) opened strong, despite the usual strong-fall off in post-Thanksgiving audiences. Last year the month of November saw only one specialized release, “Manchester By the Sea,” pull an opening platform per theater average over $60,000. This year has already seen five.

The Disaster Artist” (in 11 markets) showed the best performance in New York/Los Angeles of any title this year (nearly $120,000 per theater), besting last weekend’s numbers for “Call Me By Your Name” (Sony Pictures Classics). They join other Oscar-bound strong openers including “Lady Bird” (A24) and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” (Fox Searchlight).

This marks unprecedented strength over such a short period, with “Lady Bird” and “Three Billboards” already performing well in wider release. At some point exhibitors are going to be challenged to handle so many hits (all will not go wide

Grammy Nominations: Can ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Baby Driver’ Run Over ‘La La Land’ in Film/TV Music Categories?

Grammy Nominations: Can ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Baby Driver’ Run Over ‘La La Land’ in Film/TV Music Categories?
La La Land” may feel like old awards news, but it still has one last chance to get called out — correctly — at an awards podium. The music from the film is nominated in all three of the Grammys’ Visual Media categories — only the third time in the last 10 years that Grammy voters cited the same film for compilation soundtrack, score and song.

The “La La Land” music is contending in two of those categories against “Moana,” which may feel like a rerun of last year’s Oscar music competition. But it’s also up against some possible future Academy Awards contenders, like the songs from “Fifth Shades Darker” and “Marshall.” That oddity is a result of differing eligibility periods: the Oscars are strictly by calendar year and the Grammys are drawn from October 2016 to September 2017 releases.

The apples-and-oranges mixture in these categories extends to mixed media: Since TV is a factor here, too, [link

The Big Sick (Michael Showalter)

From start to finish, The Big Sick, directed by Michael Showalter, works as a lovingly-rendered, cinematic answer to the dinner party question: “So how did you two meet?” Based on comedian Kumail Nanjiani‘s real life (he co-wrote the screenplay with his wife Emily V. Gordon), we meet Kumail (Nanjiani) as he finishes a stand-up set in Chicago. He becomes fast friends with a

Idfa Film Review: ‘Over the Limit’

Idfa Film Review: ‘Over the Limit’
Nina Sayers, the tortured heroine of Darren Aronofsky’s prima ballerina psychodrama “Black Swan,” might just thank her lucky stars if she saw “Over the Limit,” another relentless portrait of young female performers mentally and physically savaged in the name of perfection. This is no heightened horror film, however. The intense abuse captured in Marta Prus’s brilliant, diamond-hard documentary portrait of a Russian rhythmic gymnast’s punishing road to the 2016 Olympics is all too vividly real — just watching it induces veritable stomach cramps, though it’s impossible to turn away from the film’s whipcrack construction and expert manipulation of perspective.

A former rhythmic gymnast herself, Prus seems to equally adore the exquisite physicality of the discipline and abhor the psychological torment that goes into it. That said, no interest at all in the subject is required to find “Over the Limit” coolly riveting: If anything, the less you know about its beleaguered heroine, Margarita Mamun, and

All the Sweet Things Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky Said About Each Other
Throughout their 14-month-long courtship, Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky — whose split was confirmed by People on Wednesday — went to great lengths to keep their relationship under wraps, dodging each other on red carpets and staying mum about their love in the press.

But in August, Lawrence, 26, gave insight into their romance, telling Vogue she was immediately drawn to Aronofsky. “We had energy,” the Oscar winner said of meeting the director on the set of their film mother!. “I had energy for him. I don’t know how he felt about me.”

Critics Pick the Best Movies That Should Be Made Into TV Shows — IndieWire Survey

Critics Pick the Best Movies That Should Be Made Into TV Shows — IndieWire Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In light of recent “Galaxy Quest” and “Lord of the Rings” news, which movie/movie franchise should be rebooted as a TV series? (question courtesy of Allison Keene)

Pilot Viruet (@pilotbacon), Vice

I have so many ideas for this! During that season we got “Minority Report” and “Limitless,” I got angry about how many of these reboots/remakes/sequels are male-skewering and male-dominated and started making a list of all the movies I’d rather see instead – obviously ones that are more focused on telling stories about women and non-binary folks. “Whip It” could be a fantastic Freeform teen drama series (I’m still angry that

‘Mother!’ Director Darren Aronofsky: Why His Home Invasion Thriller Is Like Kindergarten

‘Mother!’ Director Darren Aronofsky: Why His Home Invasion Thriller Is Like Kindergarten
Darren Aronofsky’s mother! is that rare movie that comes along every once in a while, a completely polarizing event that you have to experience, even if you ultimately think it is a train wreck. Count me among the admirers of a movie that is 69% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes but drew an 'F' on CinemaScore. The director of such films as The Wrestler, Black Swan, The Fountain, Requiem for a Dream, Noah and others doesn't care about either group, but wears the disparate opinions…

Who From Stranger Things Will Have the Best Career when the Show Ends?

Netflix has struck viewer gold with fan favorite series, Stranger Things. It’s now enjoying it’s second season as well as it’s own after show. With all the hype around the nostalgic show, it’s got us wondering, who is going to have the biggest career when all of this is over? Winona Ryder obviously had quite the career before Stranger Things ever came along (Girl Interrupted, Black Swan, Edward Scissorhands to name a few), but she has fully revived her status as a leading lady with the role as Joyce Beyers. She even has a new movie coming up (in post-production),
