'Cruel Intentions' TV Sequel In The Pipeline


Cruel Intentions Reese Witherspoon Ryan Phillippe Sarah Michelle Gellar Selma Blair

Fans of the late nineties favourite Cruel Intentions will be delighted to learn that a TV sequel, focussed on the child of Annette Hargrove and Sebastian Valmont, is currently in the works.

According to Deadline on Wednesday (October 21st), NBC is picking up a series revolving around Bash Casey, the son of the characters played by Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe, the latter of which died at the end of the original movie. It would seem that Annette was pregnant at that point, and the storyline of the mooted series will pick up on the life of the now-16 year old boy.

Reese Witherspoon Wants To Change The Face Of Hollywood With Female-Driven Films


Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon is big on female representation in cinema, as she explained during a Produced By panel in Los Angeles. The Oscar winner has made a concentrated move towards production in recent years, having worked on films like Gone Girl and Wild, but she finds that it’s a constant struggle to find projects with well-rounded, interesting parts for women.

Reese Witherspoon
Witherspoon has very strict standards for the kinds of films she produces.

Still, Witherspoon explained why she thinks it’s just a reasonable expectation for filmmakers: “Women make up 50 percent of the population, so we should make up 50 percent of the [roles and stories] in movies. It’s not a crazy thought, it’s just a representation of reality."

Reese Witherspoon Sarah Michelle Gellar Selma Blair

Cruel Intentions fans got a treat this week with the premiere of the “unauthorised” stage musical.

Sarah Michelle Gellar
Sarah Michelle Gellar reunited with her former co-stars and the Cruel Intentions trio shared some love.

The musical, directed by Lindsey Rosin, is filled with iconic '90s songs like TLC's No Scrubs, Natalie Imbruglia's Torn, and Ace of Base's I Saw the Sign. According to E! News’ sleuths, the ladies sang along, applauded, high fived and generally looked like they loved the show.

Reese Witherspoon has been signed by Disney to star in a live action Tinkerbell film. The film, entitled Tink, will be a whole new take on the mischievous Peter Pan heroine.

'Hot Pursuit' Stars Reese Witherspoon And Sofia Vergara Admit An All-Female Production Team Is More Fun


Reese Witherspoon Sofia Vergara

The release of the Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon starrer Hot Pursuit may have caught movie-goers by surprise, but the pairing falls squarely within the “I didn’t even know how much I needed this until now” category.

Academy Award winner Witherspoon, also one of the film's producers, plays an uptight police officer who has to protect the more outgoing widow of a drug boss, played by Colombian-born Vergara. By the synopsis alone, we can lump this in with the kind of cop comedy we’ve seen with Bad Boys, Showtime and, on the “female-driven” front – because that’s a genre now –  Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy’s 2013 offering, The Heat.

Reese Witherspoon Helps The Cast Of 'Saturday Night Live' Apologise To Their Mothers


Reese Witherspoon

On last night's edition of 'Saturday Night Live' guest host Reese Witherspoon led the ‘SNL’ cast as they made some very public apologies to their mothers for for all those times they behaved badly, as well as embarrassing themselves a little in the process. The Hot Pursuit star was hosting the show for the second time in her career, 14 years after her first appearance in 2001.

Reese WitherspoonReese Witherspoon hosted ‘Saturday Night Live’ for the second time.

Introducing her own mother Betty, Reese apologised for a time she said she was going to sleep over at her friend Ashley's house, but was actually going to a hotel with her boyfriend. But proving she always really was a good girl, young Reese ended up feeling so guilty she just went back to Ashley's anyway.

"Hot Pursuit" Lags Behind Box Office Predictions And "Avengers: Age Of Ultron"


Robert Downey Jr Reese Witherspoon Sofia Vergara

This weekend at the box office – things went exactly as predicted, in that Avengers maintained its top spot, making bank with another $77.2 million, making it the film with the second highest sophomore weekend gross of all time. It surpassed the second weekend of Fox’s Avatar ($75.6 million) but fell behind predecessor Marvel’s The Avengers ($103.1 million).

Sofia Vergara, Reese Witherspoon
Despite receiving favourable reviews, Hot Pursuit didn't do too well at the box office.

Directed by Joss Whedon, Age of Ultron follows superheroes Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) as they battle  the new villain of the franchise, technological ultra baddie Ultron (James Spader). Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson also star in the film as twins Wanda and Pietro Maximoff, aka (this isn’t a spoiler, they were in the trailer) Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.

Reese Witherspoon Criticises Actors Who Won't Take On Gay Roles


Reese Witherspoon Sofia Vergara

Reese Witherspoon has criticised actors who refuse to portray homosexual characters on screen. The 39 year old star believes that actors who won’t take on gay roles need to “lighten up” and accept that part of their job is to “transform”.

In a joint interview with Sofia Vergara, her co-star on the upcoming movie Hot Pursuit, Witherspoon told Pridesource.com: “I think gay people are able to play straight roles; straight people are able to play gay roles. The whole point of being an actor is to transform. If people don't understand that we need to be malleable in our sexuality, then I think they need to lighten up.”

Our 5 Favourite Feminists, In Honour Of Reese Witherspoon's #AskHerMore Campaign


Reese Witherspoon Emma Watson Lena Dunham Angelina Jolie Lorde Patrick Stewart

Reese Witherspoon took to the 2015 Oscars to promote a new feminist campaign #AskHerMore, a movement created to encourage reporters to put more career centric questions to female celebrities on the red carpet, rather than just asking about their designer gowns.

We think we have a new favourite celebrity feminist. If it wasn't enough for Witherspoon to take on such an inspiring feminine role in her latest movie 'Wild'; a film based on the memoirs of Cheryl Strayed, a first time hiker who walked 1,100 miles along the Pacific Crest Trail in a journey of self-discovery; she is now encouraging other actresses and celebrities to want more from their public appearances. The star took to Instagram with a list of questions she hoped to hear as she appeared on the red carpet at the Oscars, including 'What's the biggest risk you've taken that you feel has paid off?' and 'What accomplishment are you most proud of?'.

Inherent Vice Review


Good

Like the Thomas Pynchon novel it's based on, this film remains infuriatingly evasive as its central mystery deepens. Also like Pynchon, writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson is more interested in characters than plot, expertly orchestrating a lively cast in a series of raucous scenes. That these moments never quite add up to a coherent bigger story may feel unsatisfying, but the groovy 1970s vibe is infectious, and there's a lot of fun to be had in watching these actors play around with the rambling dialogue and nutty interaction.

It's set in 1970 Los Angeles, where private investigator Doc (Joaquin Phoenix) is a stoner who'd rather not work at all. Then he agrees to help his ex-girlfriend Shasta (Katherine Waterston) find her missing property developer boyfriend Mickey (Eric Roberts). But this immediately puts him on a collision course with his long-time nemesis, Detective Bjornsen (James Brolin), a frozen-banana loving tough-guy cop known as Bigfoot. And the deeper Doc gets into the case, the more confusing it gets. Not only is the presumed-dead Coy (Owen Wilson) very much alive, but it's unclear whether a key clue about Golden Fang refers to a boat or a secret dental society. And suspiciously, Doc's DA friend Penny (Reese Witherspoon) always seems to be one step ahead of him on the case.

Anderson opens the film with a blinding flood of information and then simply never allows us to catch up, so like Doc we can't quite get a grip on what's actually going on. This effectively makes us feel as stoned as he is, bewildered by the way even the simplest revelations seem to contradict each other. But even as everything gets increasingly confusing, Anderson writes and directs scenes with a vivid intensity that's both hilariously entertaining and darkly involving. Each sequence carries a powerful punch, giving the superb cast plenty of quirky details to work with.

Wild Review


Very Good

Reese Witherspoon gives a beautifully stripped-back performance in this epic journey based on the memoir by Cheryl Strayed. The title has a double meaning, as it follows this wild child through the Wild West in a quest to find her centre. This metaphor is as obvious as Cheryl's badly over-loaded backpack, but while the messages are unmistakable the filmmaking and acting are raw and natural. And the settings are spectacular.

After a chaotic patch of wanton living, seen in flashback, Cheryl (Witherspoon) sets off to hike a thousand miles along the Pacific Crest Trail, from Mexico to Canada. She has no idea what she's doing, but bravely goes for it, overcoming feelings of loneliness before getting to know some fellow hikers along the trail as she traverses deserts, mountains and forests amid sunshine, rain and snow. All of this gives her a chance to make sense of a variety of memories involving her mother (Laura Dern), her ex-husband (Thomas Sadoski), her younger brother (Keene McRae) and her best friend (Gaby Hoffmann). And there are plenty of issues that need to be sorted out.

The film is structured in a way that lets us learn about Cheryl's past gradually. Important facts and events are dribbled in throughout the hike, shaping Cheryl's physical odyssey into a journey of self-discovery, which is more than a little gimmicky. Especially when "telling" quotes are printed right across the screen. Thankfully, Nick Hornby's script and Jean-Marc Vallee's direction never moralise about her history of promiscuity and drug abuse. These things are not the problem: they are symptoms of what's wrong with Cheryl. And this gives the film a maturity lacking in most Hollywood-studio films that are happy to find easy explanations and solutions.

The 2015 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards saw accolades going to some very well-deserved movies from the last year - with some even more well-deserved individuals picking them up.

 Unsurprisingly, the Ensemble Cast Award went to the actors from 'The Imitation Game'; a movie depicting the era-defining career of codebreaker Alan Turing during World War II and his subsequent arrest for being homosexual. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead role, with the likes of Allen Leech, Matthew Beard and Alex Lawther - the latter of whom plays Turing's younger self. Directed by the BAFTA nominated Morten Tyldum, the movie has already been nominated for five Golden Globes, and it definitely looks to be in line for an Academy Award.
