David Belle Parkour Brick MansionsEXCLUSIVE: The French action star, who co-leads Relativity Media’s upcoming Brick Mansions with the late Paul Walker, has signed with Paradigm. David Belle is well known on the European action scene for founding the movement discipline known as parkour, which he showcased by leaping up, over and through all manner of Parisian urban landscape in 2004′s Luc Besson-produced actioner District B13 and its 2009 sequel.

By | Friday March 14, 2014 @ 2:04pm PDT

Joel David Moore harrisMoore1(Bones, Avatar), Barbara Eve Harris (The Amazing Spider-Man) and Donnie Keshawarz (The Wolf Of Wall Street) have landed series regular roles on ABC’s drama pilot Forever, written by Matthew Miller and directed by Brad Anderson. It centers on Dr. Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd), New York City’s star medical examiner. But what no one knows is Henry studies the dead for a reason donnie1– he is immortal. His investigative work with recently widowed Detective Jo Martinez (Alana de la Garza), a recovering alcoholic, and relationship with best friend Abe (Judd Hirsch) will peel back the layers of Henry’s colorful and long life. Moore, repped by ICM and Underground, will play Lucas, a young M.E. tech who’s a bit of a hipster and easily tongue-tied around pretty women. Harris, with SDB Partners and Valeo Entertainment, will play Lt. Roark, an old-school NYC cop who is Martinez’s boss. The role originally was written for a male character. Keshawarz will play brash homicide Detective Hanson, who works with Martinez. He’s with Abrams Artists Agency and ATA Management.

As Predicted Here, Resolution Agents Adam Kanter And Martin Spencer Land At Paradigm; Which Clients Will Come?

By | Thursday March 13, 2014 @ 9:30am PDT
Mike Fleming

paradigmAs Deadline reported last Friday, Paradigm has confirmed that agents Adam Kanter and Martin Spencer have joined the agency after their abrupt exits from Resolution. Word had raced last week that this was happening, as the two agents did not want to take paycuts from their low-seven-figure salaries. The two joined Jeff Berg last year shortly after he left ICM to launch Resolution, and those agents came from CAA. At Paradigm, they should feel right at home alongside former CAA cohorts Bob Bookman, Ken Stovitz, Rand Holston and most recently Manny Nunez.

So now, the big question is which clients will join them in the move. Here are the ones I’m hearing are most likely to make the jump to Paradigm: Stuart Beattie, Stalingrad helmer Fedor Bondarchuk, Joe Johnston, Mark Steven Johnson, Malcolm Lee, Rob Minkoff, Evan and Shea Mirzai, Stephen Sommers, Joe Michael Straczynski and Simon West, with others still in play.

HBO Gives Series Order To Comedy Pilot ‘The Brink’ Starring Jack Black & Tim Robbins, From Jay Roach & Jerry Weintraub

By | Tuesday February 11, 2014 @ 2:04pm PST
Nellie Andreeva

timrobbinsjackblackEXCLUSIVE: In a very quick turnaround, HBO has given a series order to The Brink, its comedy pilot starring Jack Black and Tim Robbins, directed by Jay Roach and executive produced by Jerry Weintraub. Written by former Weeds executive producer Roberto Benabib and his brother Kim Benabib, The Brink is an epic dark comedy focusing on a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men: U.S. Secretary of State Walter Hollander (Robbins); Alex Coppins (Black), a lowly Foreign Service officer; and Zeke Callahan (Pablo Schreiber), an ace Navy fighter pilot. These three compromised souls must pull through the chaos around them to save the planet from World War III. Aasif Mandvi, Maribeth Monroe, Geoff Pierson, Esai Morales and Eric Ladin co-star on the series, executive produced by Roberto Benabib, Weintraub and Roach. Kim Benabib and Susie Ekins co-executive produce.

jayroach25th Annual Producers Guild Of America Awards - ArrivalsThis marks the first HBO series for Weintraub and Roach, who both have deals with the pay cable network and established relationships there. Weintraub executive produced HBO Films’ Emmy-winning movie Behind The Candelabra, while Roach directed and exec produced the Emmy-winning HBO movies Game Change and Recount.

The Brink’s road to HBO’s primetime started with an email Weintraub received while in Europe, which contained the Benabibs’ script. “I read it and I fell in love with it,” he said. When he came back to Los Angeles, Weintraub had lunch with Roach about a movie project where hbo45__130924185923-275x112Roach mentioned that he had been looking to do a half-hour comedy. Weintraub ran to his office and brought Roach The Brink script. Joking that Roach “is famous for taking three years to make up his mind” on anything, Wentraub heard from the director the very next day. “He calls me and he says, ‘I’m in, the script is too good’.” Read More »

Jay Leno’s Final ‘Tonight Show’: Obama Appoints Him Ambassador To Antarctica While Billy Crystal, Oprah Winfrey, Garth Brooks And More Serenade Host: Video

By | Thursday February 6, 2014 @ 8:00pm PST

LisaColumn__131015210634-275x198“I don’t like goodbyes – NBC does – but I don’t care for them,” an emotional Jay Leno said, kicking off a star-studded final broadcast show as host of The Tonight Show. “Tonight is our last show for real. I don’t need to be fired three times — I get the hint,” Leno joked to a friends-and-family studio audience as he ended his 22-year run Thursday night. It’s his second very-last-time-as-host — having been pushed aside in 2009 by NBC to make way for Conan O’Brien, who lasted seven months.

“I’ve got to tell you, the outpouring from people has really been touching. Anthony Weiner sent me a photo of his penis looking really sad.”

Oprah singingIn sharp contrast to the “last” time Leno celebrated his very last night as host of Tonight Show in 2009 — when, ever the team player, he had O’Brien as his final night’s guest — tonight’s show was packed with celebrities including President Obama. Longtime pal Garth Brooks performed his hit “The Dance.” And a cast of A-listers including Oprah Winfrey, Jack Black and Carol Burnett performed with Billy Crystal and The Shut Your Von Trapp Family Singers, the Rogers & Hammerstein tune from The Sound Of Music, “So Long, Farewell” with lyrics changed to suit the occasion. (Watch a clip below.) The show ended with Leno in tears as he thanked the audience, calling the Tonight Show crew his family and wishing his successor Jimmy Fallon well. (Video at the end of the post.)

But first, Leno mulled exactly how long 22 years is.

- “Here’s how long ago it is. When I started hosting, marijuana was illegal and you could smoke cigarettes anywhere you wanted.”

- “Twenty two years ago, guys actually had to go to newsstands for porn, can you imagine?”

- “So much has happened. You know the saddest part – OJ never found the real killers.”

Paul Walker Movie ‘Brick Mansions’ Pushed To April Release

By | Thursday February 6, 2014 @ 11:47am PST

BrickMansionsRelativity Media said today that Brick Mansions, one of final films completed by Paul Walker before he was killed in a car crash in November, will be released in theaters on April 25. A February date had been eyed for the pic, an English-language reboot of the 2004 French movie Banlieue 13, before Walker’s death. At the time, the film’s producer EuropaCorp told Deadline it was trying to maintain the production and release schedule of Mansions, which stars Walker as an undercover cop trying to take down a crime lord in a dystopian Detroit. The actor was in most of the scenes and had finished looping the pic only three days before his death, and a test screening the following week was scrapped as co-producers Relativity and EuropaCorp scrambled to regroup. “Paul is the big movie star in our movie — it is built around him. Paul is in about 80% of the scenes,” said CEO Christophe Lambert at the time. “For sure it’s going to be one of the last big movies of his life and it’s Paul at his best.” David Belle and Rza co-star and film editor Camille Delamarre (Taken 2, Colombiana) is making his directorial debut.

Relativity’s Earth To Echo, which had been on that April 25 date, is moving to July 2.

Relativity and EuropaCorp are making a donation — including the cost of the film’s world premiere — to Walker’s charity Reach Out WorldWide, and Walker’s manager … Read More »
