Related: WGA Sets Thursday Rally For Striking ‘Fashion Police’ Writers The upcoming CW series The Hunt doesn’t premiere until July 31st, but its producers are already in trouble with the Hollywood unions. The Motion Picture Editors Guild, IATSE Local 700, sent an email to its members and sister IATSE locals today calling for a Thursday picket against Renegade 83 Productions’ Sherman Oaks offices doing post-production. The union claims that production subsidiary Triple Ridge Entertainment “has improperly interfered with its employees’ free exercise of their right to organize”. MPEG took to its Facebook page to put out a call for picketers. The Hunt is a wilderness competition in which 12 teams compete in a physical game for a $25,000 prize. It is executive produced by David Garfinkle, Jay Renfroe and Greg Goldman.
Robert Redford may not be eligible for any awards at Cannes this year where his new film, All Is Lost premiered to strong response out of competition on Wednesday night, but if the reaction on the Croisette is any indication he could be headed for the Oscars. The film, in which Redford is the only actor playing a man stranded at sea when his sailboat springs a huge leak, is a tour de force for the star and it won a 9 minute standing ovation at its debut tonight where even the return of the rain that has plagued this festival could not put a damper on the mood of the filmmakers , Universal International (releasing overseas) and Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions (releasing domestically on October 18th.) It is clearly an awards season play , not only for Redford in a role unlike any he has played but also Oscar nominated writer/director J.C. Chandor (Margin Call) who proves his first film was no fluke and shows a remarkable ability to pull off this one-man show with real filmmaking skill. Most reviews that came in after the afternoon press screening were very upbeat, making it even more of a head-scratcher as to why this film wasn’t put in competition. Redford certainly would have given the top notch list of Best Actor contenders at this year’s Cannes a ... Read More »
Even with films from big-hitters like Alexander Payne, James Gray, Jim Jarmusch and Roman Polanski still to come, it seems to us like it's been a pretty decent year at Cannes so far (with our personal highlights including "Inside Llewyn Davis," "Like Father Like Son" and "We Are What We Are"). But there's one film in particular that wasn't especially high on the radars of many, which suddenly blew up this morning when it first screened for the press; J.C. Chandor's "All Is Lost." The filmmaker broke out two years back with "Margin Call," an acclaimed Sundance film that proved to be a pioneering hit on VOD and in theaters, as well as picking up the first-time writer/director an Oscar nomination for his screenplay. He followed it up with something quite different; from a talky ensemble piece to a film featuring one person -- legendary star Robert Redford -- and almost no dialogue. The reviews for both Redford and the film have been buzzing around the Croisette all day, and now, the...
Thought that all the season finales happened already? Nope. There's still quite a few left this week and next as we start off the summer, with Modern Family being a major one. The season 4 finale airs tonight and is taking a serious turn as the fam heads to Phil's mom's funeral, so that's going to feel different and weird. Photos: 10 Horrible Things That Happened on Nashville But before you watch, read our OK! Catch Up below to see what you missed with the Dunphys, the Prichetts and Cam and Mitch this season. Call this your Modern Family speed round, if you will... OK! Exclusive: Get the Details on OK!'s TV Hangout Jay turned 65 at the very beginning of the season, which probably got suckier when Gloria found out she was pregnant. The fam welcomed baby Joe to the family mid-way through the season, making Manny a big half brother and Mitchell and Claire big half siblings, too. Weird. Haley stars off the season in college, but mid-way through, gets kicked out for under-age drinking. Now, she's living at home with her parents and siblings and working part time, so that's fantastic news. Mitch is working hard these days as a lawyer, but he suggests that Cam get a job, too. Cam works as the school music teacher and leads the school play that Manny and Luke star in, but eventually leaves his part time gig to do something else—flip houses. Claire decides to take on the house-flipping project too. Mitch and Phil are not too thrilled, but their let their wives go at it. They end up selling the house but for barely any profit, but that was fun while it lasted, we guess. Oh right, and Claire also had a little bit of a heart problem situation where she had to get some tests done, but she's fine. Not dying anytime soon.

Luke and Manny get their first girlfriends slash kisses, while Lily, meanwhile, gets into some trouble at school (which then works itself out). The big issue here though is Haley.
