Lily Collins to Receive Lacoste Spotlight Award at Costume Designers Guild Awards

emily 0 comments Articles, News, Press

INSTYLE – We’re a big admirer of Lily Collins’s red carpet style and definitely aren’t the only ones. The actress has a solid track record of wearing even the most intricate couture looks with ease, which means all eyes are on her this awards season.

But twirling in high fashion and landing high atop the world’s best dressed lists aren’t the only big moments for which the actress will be making waves next month. At the 19th Costume Designers Guild Awards taking place on Feb. 21, Collins will be honored with the Lacoste Spotlight Award—given to those who have an awareness and appreciation for costume design. And she’s in great company: previous honorees include Cate Blanchett in 2016 and Naomi Watts in 2015.

At the last Costume Designers Guild Awards that Collins attended in 2013, the Mirror Mirror actress donned a gorgeous Paule Ka gown with an oversize white bow accenting its sleek black silhouette: an homage to the hit film’s costume designer Eiko Ishioka who passed away that year and also won the Excellence in Fantasy Film award that evening.

Right now, Collins is at the Sundance Film Festival, celebrating the premiere of her new film To the Bone. She will also be releasing her memoir in March; thus, it’s a momentous and busy year for the star.

The 19th Costume Designers Guild Awards will take place on Feb. 21, so mark your calendars and just imagine what Collins will wear.

Warren Beatty’s ‘Rules Don’t Apply’ To World Premiere As AFI Fest Opening Night

emily 0 comments Film Projects, News, Press, Rules Don't Apply

DEADLINERules Don’t Apply, which was written, produced, directed by and co-stars Warren Beatty in his first film in 15 years, has been selected to open the 30th edition of American Film Institute’s AFI Fest. The long-awaited film from New Regency and 20th Century Fox will bow November 10 at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood before it hits theaters two weeks later on November 23. This pick was a no-brainer for AFI as Beatty has a storied history with the organization having been the recipient of their prestigious 2008 Life Achievement Award.

The new film, in which Beatty plays Howard Hughes and is set in 1958, has been a longtime dream project for the star and represents the first time he has directed since 1998’s acclaimed Bulworth. His last acting job in a movie came in 2001 with Town & Country. An Oscar-winning director for Reds in 1981, Beatty was also the recipient of the Academy’s Thalberg Award and holds the distinction of having been Oscar nominated for Actor,Director, Picture and Screenplay all in the same year — not just once but twice, for 1978’s Heaven Can Wait and Reds.

Warren Beatty has charmed and challenged moviegoers from his first moment on screen, and his talents as an actor, director, writer and producer have always transcended trends,” AFI president and CEO Bob Gazzale said. “AFI is honored to present the world premiere of his newest gift to America’s cultural legacy.” AFI Fest director Jacqueline Lyanga added that this was the perfect film to open the 30th year of the perfectly timed fall festival (smack in the heart of awards season) since the film also takes place in Hollywood. “On opening night, the TCL Chinese Theatre, the quintessential temple of cinema in Hollywood, will shine a light on Rules Don’t Apply,” she said.

The film is about an aspiring young actress (Lily Collins) and her ambitious young driver (Alden Ehrenreich) who struggle “hopefully” with the absurd eccentricities of eclectic billionaire Hughes, for whom they work. It has a sterling list of supporting players including Alec Baldwin, Annette Bening, Candice Berger, Steve Coogan, Ed Harris, Haley Bennett, Matthew Broderick, Dabney Coleman, Oliver Platt, Taissa Farmiga, Megan Hilty and Martin Sheen.

With awards season set to kick off tomorrow in Venice followed by the Telluride, Toronto and New York film festivals, AFI Fest has become an important stop later in the game — especially for movies with high Oscar hopes that aren’t quite ready to premiere at the earlier festivals. It will run November 10-17 and you can expect several more prime contenders to be announced soon.

The full festival lineup and schedule will be unveiled in October.

‘The Last Tycoon’ Drama Picked Up To Series By Amazon

emily 2 comments Articles, News, The Last Tycoon

DEADLINE – With a well-known title and formidable lead cast, Amazon’s The Last Tycoon pilot has been a strong contender for a series pickup. Now the project, toplined by Matt Bomer, Kelsey Grammer and Rosemarie DeWitt, has been ordered to series by the streaming service, I have learned. It comes from Sony TV’s TriStar Television. I hear Amazon’s other drama pilot from the batch, The Interestings, is not going forward.

Written and directed by Billy Ray based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s final unfinished novel, The Last Tycoon was inspired by the life of film mogul Irving Thalberg, on whom the book’s protagonist Monroe Stahr was based. The project centers on Stahr (Bomer), Hollywood’s first wunderkind studio executive in the 1930s as he climbs to the height of power pitting him against his mentor and current head of the studio, the brawny, imposing, charming and vain Pat Brady (Grammer), a character based on Louis B. Mayer. Having come from the streets, Brady has no intention of returning to his misfortune, and is determined to make sure his studio is successful, no matter what personal morals he compromises. Dewitt plays Pat Brady’s wife, Rose Brady, who may be involved with Stahr.

In The Last Tycoon‘s 1976 big-screen adaptation directed by Elia Kazan and written by Harold Pinter, the roles of Stahr and Brady were played by Robert De Niro and Robert Mitchum, respectively.

Bomer, Grammer and DeWitt all have toplined TV series before, USA’s White Collar (Bomer), Frasier and Boss, among others (Grammer) and Standoff (DeWitt). This marks Emmy winner Grammer’s return to drama series following his Golden Globe-winning turn on Boss. Bomer also won a Golden Globe, for HBO’s The Normal Heart, and recently co-starred on American Horror Story: Hotel. DeWitt has been focused on movies for the past few years, recently starring in Poltergeist.

Ray executive produces The Last Tycoon alongside Chris Keyser, who serve as showrunners, as well as Josh Maurer, David Stern and Alix Witlin. Pulitzer-winning author and F.Scott Fitzgerald scholar A. Scott Berg served as consulting producer on the pilotThis marks TriStar TV’s second series at Amazon, joining Good Girls Revolt.
