Oscar-nominated cinematographer Rachel Morrison ’s feature directorial debut Flint Strong has moved from Universal to MGM , with Brian Tyree Henry ( Atlanta ) coming aboard to star, Deadline can confirm. Henry joins an ensemble that also includes Ryan Destiny and Oluniké Adeliyi, as previously announced. The film will continue shooting next week in Toronto following a prolonged shutdown precipitated by the Covid pandemic. Henry takes over the role initially to have been played by Ice Cube, who worked on the project for just two days back in March of 2020, before production was indefinitely delayed. Flint Strong is a boxing drama based on Zackary Canepari and Drea Cooper’s 2015 documentary, T-Rex . It will tell the true story of Claressa “T-REX” Shields (Destiny), a 17-year-old Flint, Michigan native whose dreams of becoming the first woman in history to win an Olympic gold medal in boxing came to fruition at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Adeliyi is … [Read more...] about Brian Tyree Henry Boards ‘Flint Strong’, From Oscar Nom Rachel Morrison, As Project Moves From Universal To MGM

Matthew McConaughey , who was born in Uvalde, Texas, seemed to call for stricter gun control laws without expressly saying so in a statement following yesterday’s mass shooting at an elementary school in his hometown. “Once again we have tragically proven that we are failing to be responsible for the rights our freedoms grant us,” McConaughey wrote in a statement shared on social media. “The true call to action now is for every American to take a longer and deeper look in the mirror, and ask ourselves, ‘What is it that we truly value? How do we repair the problem? What small sacrifices can we individually take today, to preserve a healthier and safer nation, state, and neighborhood tomorrow?’ We cannot exhale once again, make excuses, and accept these tragic realities as the status quo.” View this post on Instagram A post shared by Matthew McConaughey (@officiallymcconaughey) Though clearly distraught and … [Read more...] about Matthew McConaughey Says We ‘Must Do Better’ After School Shooting in His Texas Hometown
They all hate one another, Leila (the magnificent Taraneh Alidoosti) tells her brother Alireza (Navid Mohammad Zadeh) when he returns to the family home. It is a rare visit; he works in an industrial plant somewhere on the other side of Iran. He isn’t going to tell his family that he has been laid off with the promise of pay that has never materialized; in the Tehran family that crowds Saeed Roustaee ’s long and absorbing clan drama Leila’s Brothers , he is supposed to be the properly functioning son. What can you say about the other three brothers in this Cannes competition film? There is Manouchehr (Payman Maadi) who, as they all like to say, thinks with his pectorals. Parvis (Farhad Aslani) is very fat and a heavy drinker; they all expect him to die any day, though he does seem to keep fathering children successfully. Farhad (Mohammad Ali Mohammadi) is a shyster who could barely lie straight in bed, which might have something to do with why his wife is divorcing him, taking … [Read more...] about Cannes Review: Saeed Roustaee’s ‘Leila’s Brothers’
Out in the jungle, no one can hear you dragging a body around. Mind you, nobody notices much what you do in the city, either. Colombian director Andres Ramirez Pulido ’s debut feature, La Jauria , screening in Critics’ Week at Cannes, opens with a grab-bag of images familiar from current Latin American cinema — a couple of teenage boys in neon-lit urban darkness, some elaborate sniffing and nose-wiping, a bike that shouts “stolen” as they careen down a highway — but soon detours into stranger and much more remote territory. One thing you can be sure of: wherever they are, these boys are going to be in trouble. Where they are, once that opening sequence has set a scene that will immediately be ripped from beneath our feet, is mysterious. Eliu (Jhojan Estiven Jiminez) previously seen under a streetlight with a bottle in his hand, is one of a gang working around a decrepit hacienda, emptying a stagnant swimming pool of weeds under the sun before going into a clearing to … [Read more...] about Cannes Review: Andres Ramirez Pulido’s ‘La Jauria’

EXCLUSIVE : The final TV show to be filmed in Ukraine before the war commenced is nearing completion in a bomb shelter. Porn, I Love You, a rare U.S./Ukraine co-production from Netflix’s Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight For Freedom producer Den Tolmor , was filmed in Kyiv just prior to the war starting and editors, sound designers, composers, directors and others are now putting the finishing touches in the shelter. These shelters have doubled up to serve a number of functions over the past three months while, in the reverse, FILM.UA’s Ukraine studio has itself been used as a bomb shelter. U.S. distributor Propagate is already shopping Porn, I Love You to buyers, with the hope that they will see the intense work that has gone into the show and appreciate its comic appeal at a time of hardship for the nation that won the coveted Eurovision Song Contest earlier this month. Starring Artur Ignatenko, Liliya Tsvelikova and Aleksandr Melnik, the show is an … [Read more...] about Last Ukrainian Show To Be Filmed Before Invasion Nearing Completion In Bomb Shelter; Propagate Shopping ‘Porn, I Love You’ In U.S.
The NFL has reportedly decided to bring mobile streaming in-house, creating an owned-and-operated service called NFL+ to provide in-market live streams of games on mobile devices. Sports Business Journal reported that league owners signed off on the NFL+ plan during their meetings in Atlanta, following media speculation earlier this year about the scenario. The price point is said to be $5 a month, though the report noted that pricing could change. Given the blossoming of podcasting as a medium, the offering will likely include podcasts along with other team content and radio streams. Under current broadcast regulations, regular season games must be offered within teams’ local markets on TV networks available without a pay-TV subscription. That means NFL+ is likely to primarily be a complement to that bigger-screen setup. Previous deals with Verizon and Yahoo had offered NFL livestreams to laptops and mobile devices. And the league-operated NFL Game Pass … [Read more...] about NFL Reportedly Sets July Launch Of Mobile-Focused Streaming Service NFL+, Its Own Version Of Previous Verizon & Yahoo Setups
