Before he begins filming Doug Ellin's Entourage movie in earnest, Kevin Connolly decided to go on an unusual solo adventure: to sell a project to foreign buyers for the first time. During back-to-back buyer meetings at the Ritz-Carlton, Connolly explained his vision for his film, which follows two female sitcom stars and roommates who find themselves vying for the same role. In a boost for the film's financial profile, the Highland Group has sold the movie in a number of key territories, including Germany and South Korea, and is in final negotiations for Japan, France and Latin America.
Since Woody Allen’s “Blue Jasmine” was released last summer, actress Cate Blanchett has been an Oscar frontrunner for her portrayal of a Manhattan socialite who loses everything. But now that Dylan Farrow, Allen’s adopted daughter with former partner Mia Farrow, has publicly renewed sexual molestation charges against him, it’s Blanchett who could wind up the loser. “Blue Jasmine” received three nominations this year — lead actress for Blanchett, supporting actress for Sally Hawkins, and original screenplay for Allen. For her performance, Blanchett has already won her third Golden Globe, her second Screen Actors Guild Award, and several other festival awards.
Comedy Central's Nathan Fielder has been revealed as the individual behind the "Dumb Starbucks" pop-up shop in Los Feliz, Calif., where the baristas just gave everything on the menu away for free. One might wonder whether the network's legal brass had signed off on the stunt. A spokesperson for Comedy Central parent Viacom told The Hollywood Reporter, " The episode relating to 'Dumb Starbucks' constituted protected free expression. Viacom takes intellectual property rights seriously, and also recognizes the important constitutional protection afforded to expressive works characterized by social commentary." The expression of support came after a wild weekend that saw lines of "Dumb Starbucks" customers winding around the block.
