Emma Watson Teaming With Francesca Gregorini for 'Your Voice In My Head'


Alison Owen and Michael Benaroya will produce the adaptation of the Emma Forrest memoir. Emma Watson has signed to star in Your Voice in My Head, the adaptation of the Emma Forrest memoir that Francesca Gregorini will direct.

Academy Award nominee Alison Owen, a producer on the upcoming Saving Mr. Banks, and Benaroya Pictures’ Michael Benaroya, whose credits include Lawless and Margin Call, will produce the drama, which will start shooting Nov. 4 in New York.
Watson was loosely attached to the project a few years ago when it was set up at Warner Bros. with Harry Potter director David Yates. Yates left in 2012 and Watson followed soon after, with Emily Blunt next being associated with the project.
The project moved out of Warners and is now on the independent track. And Watson is back with Gregorini, the daughter of famed Bond girl Barbara Bach, who co-helmed the Rooney Mara coming-of-age drama Tanner Hall. International Film Trust (IFT), the recently-launched division of Benaroya Pictures, is selling the project internationally in Toronto. CAA is repping domestic rights.
Head tells the story of a young woman living the fast life in New York who attempts suicide before being saved by a selfless psychiatrist who is hiding the fact he is dying of cancer.
Forrest, a novelist and journalist repped by CAA and Casarotto and Associates, wrote the script. Watson, repped by WME and UK’s Markham Froggatt & Irwin, recently appeared in Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring and cameoed in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s This is The End. Gregorini, repped by CAA and the Schiff Co., also directed and co-wrote The Truth About Emanuel, which starred Jessica Biel. Tanner Hall premiered at the 2009 edition of the Toronto International Film Festival.


Can TV Music Placement Save the Industry?


Music supervisor Chris Mollere talks about getting bands exposure on shows like 'Pretty Little Liars' and 'Vampire Diaries'

"It’s a crazy music world out there," Chris Mollere said during a recent phone interview with Rolling Stone. The in-demand music supervisor was fresh off of the Georgia set for the Vampire Diaries spin-off, The Originals, where he was overseeing a brass band brought on set to recreate a New Orleans street scene, and he was tired after the long days. But Mollere, who also works on the CW’s The Vampire Diaries and ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars, is used to the grind. "TV moves quickly," he said. "We’re probably mixing one episode of a show each week." Overseeing the music for two teen dramas means that Mollere has to read the scripts, work with the crew to spot where songs will go in the show, select the songs, clear the rights and then stick everything into the mix. Then he does it all again for the next episode.

While Mollere has always loved music, even managing bands while living in Austin, his start in the music supervision business was an accident. He had moved to Los Angeles and happened to cross paths with a frustrated director who was unable to find music for his film that worked within his budget. "I told him to give me a week and let me check it out. I sat down and worked it out and gave him a bunch of song options and he loved it. From that point on, I’ve been doing music supervision for film and then advertising and then for TV." Mollere’s first turn at music supervision for a network show was for Kyle XY, a teen-oriented sci-fi show that ran on ABC Family for three seasons. The soundtrack for the show featured cuts from American Analog Set, Mates of State and Earlimart among other indie fare that rarely found an audience on American television before the advent of the television soundtrack under Josh Schwartz’s The OC.

Robert Pattinson 'Enjoying Hooking Up Randomly On Nights Out' Following Split From KStew


Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart may have split earlier this year after four years together and despite the pair playing loved-up Bella and Edward in the Twilight franchise, as well as their relationship off screen, the duo are now apparently living very "separate lives", with Rob allegedly "hooking up randomly on nights out."

Rob has been linked to numerous ladies since his split from the On The Road babe and sources have now said that he's enjoying playing the field now that he's a single man.

“He isn’t dating anyone, he is focusing on work and randomly hooking up on nights out,” a source close to the couple claims to HollywoodLife, adding: “There is no one special girl in his life. As for Kristen, they don’t talk, they have separate lives."

Kristen is currently extremely happy in Berlin, sources say, with the actress arriving in Europe last month to begin filming new movie Sils Maria.

“Kristen is the happiest she’s been in a long time,” a friend told the tabloid, “She feels a sense of freedom being in Berlin and is having a really fun time on the set and just exploring the city and the countryside.”

Tom Hiddleston Explains How He Became A Shakespearean, Rocker Vampire


Fun fact: Tom Hiddleston can recite Hamlet on demand.

The formally-trained British actor, 32, has long been enthralled — and in the debt of — Shakespeare. Yes, he recently starred in The Hollow Crown, a production that stitches together four Bard-penned plays for PBS, but he’ll also tell you that he reached deep into The Globe Theater’s greatest hits to inform his performance as the evil god Loki of the Marvel universe; and, he borrowed just as heavily when shaping the character of Adam, a brilliant romantic poet and musician that is suffering through eternity as a vampire in Jim Jarmusch’s new film, Only Lovers Left Alive.

The film, which screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, is a pitch black comedy that centers on Hiddleston’s Adam — a dark, tortured, and morosely funny blend of Lord Byron and early British goth rockers — and Tilda Swinton’s Eve, a brilliant and sunny vampire who is his devoted, long-distance lover. Twilight, it is not; they drink real human blood and find their angst in the centuries of human potential they’ve seen wasted.

“Hamlet was a big inspiration because he is a doubtful, melancholic, sad sort,” Hiddleston said. “It’s amazing; when I was filling myself up with Adam, I went back and read Hamlet, and so much of Shakespeare’s poetry seemed to speak to me in a way I’d never reconsidered… All of his plays are a constant source of inspiration for me.”

And then, he provided proof, reciting a series of lines from the play that he found particularly helpful and had at the ready to plug into scenes upon Jarmusch’s request.

“How weary, stale, flat and unprofitable, Seem to me all the uses of this world!” Hiddleston began, suddenly finding himself in the midst of an impromptu and understated private performance, firing out two more lines as if from muscle memory. “O that this too too solid flesh would melt, Thaw, and resolve itself into a dew!” he whispered, “I have of late, but wherefore I know not, lost all my mirth.”

Kween Tilda Swinton Personally Believes We All Deserve To See The Unedited Version Of "Snowpiercer"

Jumping to conclusions before the facts are in is par for the course these days. As is the blind leap to vilify Harvey Weinstein over anything mildly controversial that he has even dared look sideways at (though yes, his track record is poor, but generally the dude knows what he’s doing), but at the Deauville American Film Festival in France, actress Tilda Swinton made some pointed, not-so-exactly subtle remarks about the brouhaha over Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-Ho's upcoming Weinstein sci-fi thriller, "Snowpiercer."

IndieWire Playlist's TIFF Review of "Rush" Starring Chris Hemsworth + Daniel Brühl

It's only "rebels, lunatics and dreamers" that decide to get behind the wheel and race for a living, so quips Austrian driver Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) in the early moments of Ron Howard's "Rush," and there's an undeniable logic to his observation. For who else would willingly strap themselves into a fiberglass frame, powered by a 500-horsepower engine to drive at unimaginable speeds around a racetrack, where even the faintest hint of a wrong move could end your life? And who else would embrace the odds where at the beginning of each race year, it's known that an average of two drivers will die out of a field of twenty-five? Well, Lauda is one of those people, as is Englishman James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth), and together they made worldwide headlines for their intense rivalry and passion for the sport. Howard's film matches that fuel-injected devotion in a film that goes beyond mere sports biopic to tale of two men forged by gasoline, jumpsuits and ambition.

Daniel Brühl really gets that Best Supporting Actor nod, and good for Chris Hemsworth getting praise as well for stepping outside of his Thor persona and showing great range.

Hayao Miyazaki Confirms His Retirement And Wishes To Still Stay With Studio Ghibli

Hayao Miyazaki, largely referred to as Japan's Walt Disney, both for his kindly public demeanor and the fact that he's made a collection of stone cold animated classics (among them "My Neighbor Totoro" and "Spirited Away"), held a press conference in Tokyo to confirm that, yes, he is retiring and yes, you should be really, really, ridiculously sad. Still (silver lining alert): he hopes to maintain a presence at Studio Ghibli, the production company that he founded.

"I'd like to work for at least 10 more years, but I think that making feature films is no longer my job," Miyazaki said. The filmmaker has made the same claim at least twice before, something that he acknowledged. "I'm going to be free. At the same time, as long as I can drive my car to the studio, I'll go. If there are things I want to do, then I will," Miyazaki said.

The animator, a meticulous perfectionist, “would take six or seven years. I’m going to be 73 years old and I would be 80 by the end.” He then joked that he might become a permanent exhibit at the studio's Ghibli Museum, a place we have every intention of visiting should we find ourselves in the area (following our walking tour of "Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift" filming locations).

Miyazaki's latest (and ultimately last) film, "The Wind Rises," premiered at Venice to raves (including our own), will screen at the just-kicked-off Toronto International Film Festival and play the New York Film Festival soon. The film will get a theatrical release from Disney sometime next year.


Really hoping he'll still stay in Studio Ghibli to make damn sure the stuff they put out are up to par with his illustrious back catalogue. What say you, ONTD?

Vanity Fair Officially Declares "Only Lovers Left Alive" As Infinitely Cooler Than "Twatlight"

Vampires have never appeared as cool, cultured, or frankly, human, as they do in Jim Jarmusch’s romantic-comedy drama Only Lovers Left Alive, which screened on Thursday at the Toronto International Film Festival. Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton star as Adam and Eve, a pair of sophisticated, centuries-old blood suckers who would put any of your mainstream vamps to shame during a round of Double Jeopardy—not just because of their intellects (no offense, Edward) but because they’ve interacted with history’s greats and live to tell the tales, such as how Adam, a musician, once gave Schubert a String Quartet. In one of many self-consciously clever lines in the film, Eve blames the modern-day stigma against vampires on “Shelly, Byron, and those French assholes I used to hang around with.

Charlie Hunnam Talks 'Fifty Shades of Grey' for First Time!

Charlie Hunnam makes his first official appearance since his casting in Fifty Shades of Grey while walking the red carpet at the premiere of Sons of Anarchy‘s sixth season on Saturday night (September 7) at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

The 33-year-old actor spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the upcoming film. Find out what he had to say:

On his first meeting with Dakota Johnson: “As soon as we got in the room and started reading with Dakota, I knew that I definitely wanted to do it, because there was a tangible chemistry between us. It felt kind of exciting and fun and weird and compelling, and so that was it.”

On if he has worries about the sex scenes: “My first job was on a Channel 4 miniseries called Queer as Folk. It was incredibly explicit sexual scenes with a man. I mean I’m 16 and 17 years wiser now. So if I could do it when I was 18 with a guy, I can certainly do it at 33 with a lady.”

On how his girlfriend Morgana McNelis helped him make his decision: “It’s very hard to be with an actor. She’s required to share parts of me that she wouldn’t really want to share. With the nature of this role, that’s going to be times 10… She read them and loved them and was really excited about the potential of the opportunity for me. If anything, I think it will make us closer. ”

Cillian Murphy: 'My foot's in the door... I hang out with musicians

We are living – so the story goes – in a golden age of television: long-form narratives sprawl and stretch over six, 12, 20 episodes, allowing ambiguity, nuance, subtle character development. Bigger budgets mean better production values, and hip soundtracks are de rigueur. From HBO big hitters to Scandi noir to British grime drama, television is the medium of the moment.

So mused Cillian Murphy to himself one day. His next thought was, "Why don't I ever get sent any [television] scripts?" Good question: after all, at 37 he's lit up the big screen in smart science-fictions such as Christopher Nolan's Batman movies and Inception, and Danny Boyle's Sunshine and 28 Days Later. He's done his time on indie movies, playing everything from a charming trans woman in Breakfast on Pluto to a 1920s IRA fighter in Ken Loach's The Wind That Shakes the Barley. Then there's the stage career – a lucky break in Enda Walsh's 1996 hit play Disco Pigs kick-started not only his career, but also another fertile, frequent collaboration; Murphy performed Walsh's one-man show Misterman recently, and will star in his new play, Ballyturk, next year.

Naomi Watts out, BFF Nicole Kidman in for Werner Herzog’s ‘Queen of the Desert’

Like a mirage that seems to vanish in the arid air, Naomi Watts has departed Werner Herzog’s new film, “Queen of the Desert,” but been replaced by someone of equally impressive star magnitude in Nicole Kidman. The news comes out of the Toronto International Film Festival, which is where all news should be coming out of this week. The film co-stars James Franco and Robert Pattinson and tells the story of real-life 20th century explorer Gertrude Bell. Expect lots of sand and those old timey explorer helmets.

The casting switcheroo isn’t unique for the project, which charts Bell’s involvement in the formation of the Middle East at the dawn of the 20th century, as Jude Law was originally slated for the production, only to be replaced by Franco.

Kidman will star as, in the words of the report, an “iconic explorer, writer, archeologist and attaché for the British Empire.” We can see Kidman really sinking her teeth into the role, which is described as having a similar vibe as “Lawrence of Arabia.” Sounds pretty killer to us.

The actress can be seen at Toronto in “The Railway Man” (you can read our review right now), which is currently seeking acquisition and will be all over the Oscar prognosticators' forecasts when “Grace of Monaco” (where the star plays Grace Kelly) is released by The Weinstein Company on November 27th.

nicki minaj @ new york fashion week

The major gossip in the scrum of reporters and photographers at Hervé Léger on Saturday afternoon was that Blake Lively was in the house.The answer is no. No, she would not. The rest of the front row felt fairly pedestrian — you've got your Giuliana Rancic, your Petra Nemcova, your Katie Cassidy — until all hell broke loose in the form of Nicki Minaj, her sunglassed and behatted boyfriend, and her two enormous, bald, hair-trigger bodyguards.

With all due respect to Nicki, who is quite small and could probably use a little hired muscle, her crew was acting as if they were members of the Secret Service and there was a credible threat to the president ... and that president was Nicki Minaj. They yelled at reporters to get out of their faces, manhandled those in their wake, and seemingly came close to decking a member of the press corps who tried to snap a front row photo of Nicki — a credentialed photographer, not some looky-loo with a camera phone, and he basically got the equivalent of, "YOU WANNA PIECE OF ME??!" from the more intense of the two bodyguards. (He did not; he retreated to the photo pit.)

Miley Cyrus and Little People Rock German TV

Miley Cyrus went big for the VMAs, but she decided to go small on the German TV show,Schlagg Den Raab. Literally.

After her controversial Video Music Awards performance complete with giant teddy bears, the singer takes things down a notch or two for a live performance of "We Can't Stop"—backed up by a band of little people!

And everybody involved seems to be having a great time, so it's hard to harp about it. As she stomps through the onstage fog in an uber-bedazzled top, cutoffs and thigh-high stockings, she takes time to playfully slap the backside of a tiny, shiny dancer and mug with the other musicians while one giant teddy bear lounges eerily in the background.

Cyrus is clearly having a gas. She even playfully scolds the bass player for sticking his tongue out in the Miley manner. And then does the same, natch.

Blind Gossip Item Revealed: Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Only Had Sex To Get Pregnant?

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West only had sex to get pregnant? According to a new blind gossip reveal, yes!

There was this bit of blind gossip shared back in June on Crazy Days and Nights:

"If you believe this guy, and you really really should because he knows everything that goes on, then this celebrity/reality couple have only had sex four times and none since she got pregnant. The only reason they had sex was so she could get pregnant."

And today the site has revealed the blind item to be about none other than Kimye!

There have been a lot of rumors since these two got together that it was more of a publicity relationship than anything else and that the pregnancy was just an arrangement between them.  If this bit of gossip is true, it looks like the rumor mill may have been right all along.


Zach Galifianakis Skips Movie Premiere as Wife Goes into Labor

Zach Galifianakis is about to have a big reason to pop open a bottle or two of champagne – his wife, Quinn Lundberg, is in labor.

E! News reports that the funnyman, 43, skipped the Toronto Film Festival premiere of his new film, You Are Here, on Saturday because he's about to become a dad.

"We literally found out on Friday," the film's director Matthew Weiner said, adding, "Zach is going to be the best dad in the world."

The low-profile couple reportedly tied the knot in Vancouver in August 2012, but never confirmed the wedding, or the fact that Lundberg was pregnant.

Parenthood has always been in the cards for the pair, however.

Superman fan has 19 surgeries to look like his favourite comic book hero

When Clark Kent wanted to transform into Superman, it was a fairly simple task.
He would step into a phone box, spin around and the switch would be complete.

But Herbert Chavez's change into the comic book hero has taken a bit longer - through 16 years of plastic surgery.

The 35-year-old, from Calamba City, Philippines, has had nose jobs, skin whitening, lip liposuction, jaw realignment, pec implants and even abdominal implants to become a real-life Clarke Kent after falling in love with the TV programme aged five.

He has splashed around 300,000 Pesos (£4,400) on his obsession - a fortune compared to the average 90p hourly wage in the Philippines.

Mr Chavez regularly takes to the streets around his home dressed in full Superman regalia, with his hair gelled in distinctive curly fashion.

Where’s the female Walter White?

The backlash against Skyler on "Breaking Bad" obscures a more pressing issue: TV's dearth of female anti-heroes

A recent NYTimes piece by Anna Gunn about the audience perception of her Breaking Bad character, Skyler White, has raised a number of issues about the misogynistic perception of many female characters in television dramas. Back in May, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan also addressed the issue, saying:

We’ve been at events and had all our actors up onstage, and people ask Anna Gunn, “Why is your character such a bitch?” And with the risk of painting with too broad a brush, I think the people who have these issues with the wives being too bitchy on Breaking Bad are misogynists, plain and simple. I like Skyler a little less now that she’s succumbed to Walt’s machinations, but in the early days she was the voice of morality on the show. She was the one telling him, “You can’t cook crystal meth.” She’s got a tough job being married to this asshole. And this, by the way, is why I should avoid the Internet at all costs. People are griping about Skyler White being too much of a killjoy to her meth-cooking, murdering husband? She’s telling him not to be a murderer and a guy who cooks drugs for kids. How could you have a problem with that.

Obviously, we were dying to get the deets on the lady behind the look, and Kenley was kind enough to fill us in! (P.S. Keep an eye out for more to Ariana x Kenley to come!

Serena Williams wins 5th US Open title in windy final

Top-seeded Serena Williams won her fifth U.S. Open championship and 17th Grand Slam title overall by beating No. 2 Victoria Azarenka 7-5, 6-7 (6), 6-1 in a windy final.

Sunday's match was the toughest test these two weeks for the No. 1-seeded Williams, who also beat Azarenka in three sets in last year's final.

Williams hadn't lost a set in her previous six matches but was bothered by the swirling air and Azarenka's strong play. Seemingly in control in the second set, Williams was broken while serving for the match at 5-4 and 6-5.

After Azarenka took the tiebreaker, Williams chucked her racket, and it bounced onto the court.

But Williams regained control in the third set, breaking for a 3-1 lead when Azarenka double-faulted.

What Oprah And 7 Other Celebrities Learned From Their Grandparents

After premiering in March, Justin Timberlake's recent music video, "Mirrors," gained attention for celebrating a somewhat unlikely subject: his grandparents' marriage.

The video for "Mirrors," which is the second single off his album, "The 20/20 Experience," chronicles his grandparents' 63-year love, with actors depicting their romance from courtship through old age. The beginning of the eight-minute-long clip features a dedication to the couple, which reads: "for William and Sadie."

Timberlake, who married actress Jessica Biel last October, has cited his recently deceased grandfather as a major role model, saying he taught him that "chivalry doesn't have to die with the birth of the Internet." This made us curious about what other celebrities have learned from their grandparents -- and how these lessons have contributed to their personal and professional success.

Director Steve McQueen calls Michael Fassbender the 'most influential actor of his generation'


It's no secret Steve McQueen is a fan of Michael Fassbender.

The British director has only made three feature films and Fassbender has been at the helm of all of them, including his role as an IRA prisoner starving himself to death in 2008’s "Hunger" and a man suffering from a sex addiction in 2011's "Shame."

But during a press conference Saturday at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) for his new movie "12 Years a Slave," in which Fassbender also plays a prominent role, McQueen went even further with his praise for the German-born actor.

"I think he’s the most influential actor of his generation. He’s like a pop star. Kids want to be that person."

"12 Years a Slave" depicts the incredible true story of Solomon Northup (played by Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free man living in Saratoga Springs, New York in 1841, who gets captured and sold into slavery.

In the movie, which is based on a memoir written by Northup, Fassbender plays Edwin Epps, a ruthless plantation owner in the Deep South who demeans and tortures his slaves. To get into character Fassbender read Northup’s book, worked with a dialect coach and went to New Orleans six weeks before the film began shooting to try and soak up the atmosphere.

Jared Leto talks about his dramatic weight loss & playing a transsexual.

Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto returns to the big screen this fall with his role in the upcoming film "Dallas Buyers Club."

The movie, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival this week, stars Leto alongside Matthew McConaughey, as Rayon, a transsexual woman who is HIV-positive.

Leto underwent a dramatic transformation for the role, losing more then 30 pounds for the shooting of "Dallas Buyers Club." He opened up to The Wrap about his weight loss at TIFF this week, explaining, "I stopped eating.”

"It was 30 or 40 pounds," Leto continued. "After a while I stopped counting. It changes the way you walk, the way you sit, the way you think."

This isn't the first time that Leto has spoken about his "Dallas Buyers Club" dieting. "Your body goes through weird stages," Leto told Vulture late last year. "Sometimes it's hard to hold on to water. But for me, it's not about the most weight I can lose, it's more to represent the character. I'm focused on what it means to be a transsexual woman."

For more on Leto, head over to The Wrap.

Gillian Flynn on 6 Dark Books That Actually Scare Her

Literarily speaking, we worship at the dark altar of Gillian Flynn. But what's a murky mystery-loving girl to do when she's already powered through all three of Flynn's novels—Gone Girl, Dark Places, and Sharp Objects—and still has a ways to go till the awesome movie versions come out?

Read the scary books that actually give Flynn the heebie-jeebies, of course. So we went straight to the source. "I've always had a fondness for the Gothic," Flynn said. "That's what kind of stories attract me: Why do people do bad things?"

Speaking of people doing bad things: Flynn is clearly thrilled about which actors will bring the ones she created to life. We spoke before Gone Girl finalized its castings, but Dark Places had already signed up Charlize Theron as Libby and Chloe Moretz as Diondra.
"Charlize is such a brilliant actress and about as far away physically from Libby as described in the book as you can get," Flynn said. "I can't wait to see her get down and dirty." And Moretz taking on the role of teenage mega-manipulator made total sense—especially considering a random observation Flynn's husband made years ago. "When Chloe was on 30 Rock, my husband turned to me and said, 'That's like baby Amy [in Gone Girl], if you ever need a flashback to Amy in high school." Fast-forward to today, and Chloe's taken it one step further—I think Diondra's a tad more evil than Amy would've been, but they definitely live on the same twisted spectrum.

But enough Flynn fangirling. Let's get to her recommendations for nightstand material that's like nightmares come to life—in the most addictive way possible.

Dare Me, by Megan Abbott

We love Abbott too; she wrote an exclusive short story for our August issue. Dare Me is set in the world of high school cheerleaders; it's kind of like the book world's Pretty Little Liars right now.

Danny Huston cast as Jessica Lange's love interest on American Horror Story

Ryan Murphy announced new casting on Twitter a little while ago

Coven stars Jessica Lange as a witch named Fiona; Kathy Bates plays historical personage Madame LaLurie, a Louisiana-born socialite and serial killer who kept slaves bound in her home; and Angela Bassett portrays voodoo expert/cult leader Marie Laveau. Coven tells the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America. More than 300 years have passed since the turbulent days of the Salem witch trials, and those who managed to escape are now facing extinction. Mysterious attacks have been escalating against their kind, and young girls are being sent away to a special school in New Orleans to learn how to protect themselves.

Wrapped up in the turmoil is new arrival, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Lange), the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.

Huston joins a female-heavy cast that also includes Sarah Paulson, Denis O'Hare, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Patti LuPone, Emma Roberts and Gabourey Sidibe. Coven premieres Oct. 9 on FX.

Too hot to handle: Cara Delevingne leaves set after false fire alarm disrupts filming

She's currently the hottest, most talked about model in the fashion realm, but Cara Delevingne is also ready to set our screens alight in her debut film.

But the 21-year-old English model may prove too hot to handle as on her latest film set the fire alarm went off and she had to exit the building alongside her co-stars.

Cara and actress Gala Gordan were spotted standing outside The Box club in Soho with the rest of the cast of Kids In Love, before all returning into the building after just ten minutes, on Sunday.

Cara's costume was cute and sparkly, dressed in a gold sequined halter-neck top, adorned with sequin daisies and gold penny tassels, and a pair of high-waisted black leather hotpants.

The Breaking Bad GQ+A: RJ Mitte on Walt Jr.'s Dad Issues and Trying to Avoid Spoilers

Walter White is the one who knocks. He is the danger. He is also, in effect, the cancer, his dark shadow poisoning everyone it passes over. Thus far, only one person in Walt's life has been spared: his son, Walter Jr. (played by RJ Mitte). The teenager has remained painfully innocent of his father's depravity. He senses that something is terribly wrong, but believes unconditionally that Walt is a hero, or at the very least, a good father trying his best. That's why it was so shocking to hear Walter Jr.'s plea on Sunday's episode: "Dad, please, can you just tell the truth?" It seems that Junior is catching on to Walt's game, though its true nature still eludes him. What role will Walt's son play in Heisenberg's inevitable downfall? Actor RJ Mitte isn't telling, but he promises that the final four episodes will take our breath away. We spoke to Mitte—a whip-smart 21-year-old in real life, with a milder case of cerebral palsy than his character—about the end of the Breaking Bad era.

Tom Daly, British Olympic diver, finally comes out... as straight.

If you listen closely you can hear the sound of millions of gay men's hearts shattering today.

That's because Tom Daly just came out... as straight.

The hunky British Olympic diver, who has long been at the center of gay rumors, told The UK Mirror:

I think it’s funny when people say I’m gay... I laugh it off... I’m not. But even if I was, I wouldn’t be ashamed. It wouldn’t bother me in the slightest what people thought."

Daly added, "But I’m cool with my gay following. It’s great to have gay fans even though my friends gently take the mick.”

Taylor Kitsch at TIFF for 'The Grand Seduction'


It may not be Tim Riggins' natural stomping grounds but for Taylor Kitsch, the red carpet is his natural habitat.

The "Friday Night Lights" star, who played the loveable boozehound on the beloved football drama, showed us his model good looks on Sunday at the TIFF 2013 red carpet premiere of his upcoming movie "The Grand Seduction."

Sporting a dove grey suit (did he shop with Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal?) with a matching sknny tie, the Kelowna, B.C., native took all the attention in stride and happily posed for photos with fans.

We're glad to see the 32-year-old get recognition at the Toronto Film Festival; the former Abercrombie & Fitch model had a dismal 2012 when three of his movies, "Battleship," "John Carter" and "Savages" took a beating at the box office. It was so bad that the New York Times said of Kitsch: "And just like that, a promising career seemed to lay in ruin."

Let's hope that "The Grand Seduction," which was filmed in Newfoundland, helps put Taylor back on the star map where he belongs. But until then, we can all just admire his flawless features, right?

Are The Vamps the new One Direction?

Who are they?
Clean-cut British foursome The Vamps’ hearty guitar-pop and youthful lyrics could make them the next big teenage music stars. This weekend they will support American pop singer Selena Gomez at two big London shows, ahead of the release their debut single, Can We Dance, which has already been viewed a million times on YouTube.

How did they get here?
The Vamps formed after the band members found one another via their respective YouTube channels. Guitarist James McVey, 19, approached singer Bradley Simpson, 18, and the pair began writing songs together. They tracked down Tristan Evans, 19, after watching the audition tape which helped him make the final of a national competition for aspiring drummers in 2010, and bassist Connor Ball, 17, joined earlier this year. As Simpson explains, "bands used to form through an advert in the NME, but now it’s amazing what you can find on YouTube". The quartet have since landed a record deal with EMI and begun work on their debut album with producers in New York and LA. They’ve also built a devoted fan base, judging by the ecstatic reception they received during a gig at London’s Westfield shopping centre last month.

Who are their influences?

The band grew up listening to US pop-punk bands like Blink-182, but are also fans of acoustic pop and folk artists like Ed Sheeran and Mumford & Sons. Their biggest influence is British pop band McFly, who they recently toured with: "Their debut album was a first in all of our collections", says Simpson, "they’re brilliant musicians".

What do they sound like?
Don’t be fooled by their fresh faces, tousled hair and adoring fans – The Vamps are no One Direction. They co-write all of their songs, most of which have a rockier power-pop feel than those of Harry Styles and co. Can We Dance is an honest tale of teenage awkwardness with a punchy, toe-tapping chorus, while another track, Wildheart, has a distinctive folk bent. Both are impressively anthemic for such a young band.

What do they say about themselves?
"[We] take pride in the fact we play our own instruments and write our own songs,” says Simpson. "We’re not just a pop act."

Can We Dance is released on September 29

Possible Director For Sony's The 5th Wave?


The search for a director for the film adaptation of Rick Yancey's popular young adult book, The 5th Wave, may have just ended.

J Blakeson is in talks to direct the sci-fi flick about a girl searching for her brother following an alien invasion. Fans of this book have drawn parallels between it and other famous young adult books like The Hunger Games and Twilight.

Blakeson currently has a 2009 cult favorite in The Disappearance of Alice Creed under his belt. He was also listed as one of Variety's 10 directors to watch in 2010.

Although the film has yet to be cast, it already has big names behind it. Susannah Grant, who wrote the screenplay for Erin Brokovich, is penning this screenplay. Meanwhile, GK Films (Argo, World War Z) and Tobey Maguire's Material Pictures are producing the film.

And like The Hunger Games and Twilight series, should The 5th Wave series (a planned triology) make any sort of bank at the box office, you can certainly expect to see a sequel... or two... or three...
