‘Justice League’ Extensive Reshoots Causing Headaches for Star Schedules (Exclusive)
The studio, which had no comment on the scheduling trouble, is spending approximately $25 million on extensive reshoots that have dragged on for roughly two months in London and Los Angeles, according to multiple insiders. Like “The Avengers,” “Justice League” centers on a group of superheroes who band together to save the world. The ensemble nature of the comic book movie, and the fact that its cast includes several of the most in-demand actors working in Hollywood today, is creating scheduling headaches that have prolonged the shooting.
It’s standard for big Hollywood movies to schedule a few weeks of pick-up work, but the cost and time allotted to the work on “Justice League” is raising some eyebrows. Reshoots, or additional photography, to »

George R.R. Martin Says ‘Winds of Winter’ Could Hit Shelves in 2018
George R.R. Martin gave fans another update on his long-awaited next installment in the “Song of Ice and Fire” novel series.
“I’ve seen some truly weird reports about [‘Winds of Winter’] on the internet of late, by ‘journalists’ who make their stories up out of whole cloth,” Martin wrote on his Livejournal. “I don’t know which story is more absurd, the one that says the book is finished and I’ve been sitting on it for some nefarious reason, or the one that says I have no pages. Both ‘reports’ are equally false and equally moronic. I am still working on it, I am still months away (how many? good question), I still have good days and bad days, and that’s all I care to say.”
Martin also said that he is working on a two-volume history of Westeros’ history under the Targaryen dynasty, which is currently titled “Fire and Blood,” with »

James Cromwell was removed from SeaWorld in San Diego and then cited for trespassing for his part in a protest against the park on Monday, San Diego police told The Hollywood Reporter.
Cromwell was not arrested, just removed from the venue and ticketed, police reiterated to THR.
The Oscar-nominated actor was captured on video wearing a shirt that stated “SeaWorld Sucks,” with a megaphone leading the protest with a group from the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) on the same day it was announced a three month old killer whale named Kyara died.

‘Logan Lucky’ Review: Steven Soderbergh Returns With Well-Oiled Heist Flick
The biscuits-and-grits comic caper “Logan Lucky” is Steven Soderbergh’s return to movies after a self-imposed retirement from feature directing that no one really believed he would adhere to — especially considering how well-received his TV forays were during that time. (They included the strange and gaudy “Behind the Candelabra” for HBO and the evocative, period-immersive Cinemax series “The Knick.”) Like the proverbial top-drawer safecracker drawn by the lure of a juices-invigorating job, the “Ocean’s” movies’ steward has given first-time screenwriter Rebecca Blunt’s race-car robbery romp his undivided attention, and produced a precision-timed entertainment that, if not among his best efforts, »

Colbert Goes ‘Goodfellas’ Billy Batts in Anthony Scaramucci Impression (Video)
In case you couldn’t tell from his name, new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci is of Italian descent. His slicked back hair and designer suits probably aren’t going to slow down the mafia-esque stereotypes invoked when one impersonates the man nicknamed “The Mooch.” (That moniker won’t do Scaramucci any favors either.) Stephen Colbert stooped to that easy (some might say, “lazy”) level Monday night in his world-debut impression of Scaramucci.

Mexico’s Piano Bows Foreign Film Distribution (Exclusive)
Having carved out a reputation for its distribution of edgier Mexican fare, Piano Distribution, the auteur art pic distribution operation of Julio Chavezmontes’ production house Piano, has moved into international acquisitions, picking up Mexican rights to two high-profile Cannes titles: Ruben Ostlund’s 2017 Palme d’Or winner “The Square” and Rungano Nyoni’s first feature “I’m Not a Witch,” a Directors’ Fortnight standout.
“A thrilling milestone for the company, said Chavezmontes, the entry into international acquisitions dovetails, however, into plans for a far larger international expansion at Piano, kicking in over the next months.
Sold by The Coproduction Office, “The Square,” a social fable underscoring the valuelessness of modern life, marks final consecration for Ostlund, whose “Force Majeur” already topped Cannes Un Certain Regard in 2014.
Set in a small Zambian community, the Kinology-repped “I’m Not a Witch,” turning on a small girl who’s branded a witch, was one of the most talked-about titles of »

‘Morning Joe’ Snaps at Trump: ‘This Guy Is Spinning Wildly Out of Control’ (Video)
MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough lost it on Tuesday morning when he learned that Donald Trump was in the middle of a tweet storm, accusing the president of “spinning wildly out of control.” Trump slammed everything from Obamacare and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe on Twitter, and it appears Scarborough has finally had enough. He even spent some of his morning segment speaking directly to the president. The tweet by Trump that made Scarborough snap read: “Problem is that the acting head of the FBI & the person in charge of the Hillary investigation, »

Johnny Depp Stuns in First Photo From New Movie ‘Richard Says Goodbye’
We have a first look at Johnny Depp’s new film “Richard Says Goodbye,” and it’s a stunner. Not because of ghost-ridden pirate ships or Tim Burton pancake makeup and costumes, but thanks to how damn fine Depp cleans up for the indie (see below) about a prim gentleman who starts living honestly after a troubling diagnosis. Less than a week ago, the Academy Award nominee was beat up on social media and accused of looking rough posing with his “Platoon” costars Charlie Sheen and Kevin Dillon 30 years after the film was made.
