  • A special benefit reading of Thornton Wilder’s classic play Our Town (produced by the John Gore Organization) has been announced for Atlanta’s iconic Fox Theatre on Monday, November 6, featuring Scarlett Johansson along with her Avengers co-stars: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Mark Ruffalo.

    The evening, directed by Tony winner Kenny Leon and organized by Ms. Johansson, will include additional, surprise appearances by celebrities and friends. All proceeds from the one-night-only event will be donated to support the relief efforts in the wake of the devastation left by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.

    The struggle faced by Puerto Rican residents since their island was ravaged by Hurricane Maria is terribly heartbreaking and has left many feeling hopeless and helpless. It is a great privilege to be able to participate in whatever way I can, to provide some relief to those that are struggling to access even the most basic of human needs in the aftermath of this disastrous event. Please help me and my co-stars in coming together for an extraordinary, one-time-only evening to raise lifesaving funds for a devastated island and to help celebrate the true meaning of community with this unique reading of a great American classic.

    Tickets for the reading will go on sale this Monday, Oct. 23 at 10 a.m. ET and can be purchased online at FoxTheatre.org/OurTown, by phone at 855-285-8499, or in person at the Fox Theatre Box Office.

  • The movie stars launched “100%,” a campaign aimed at making energy from renewable sources available to everyone – and making it affordable.

    DiCaprio has spent much of the last few years toward environmental and animal conservation efforts. At Thursday night’s event, the actor said the clean energy movement was no longer about politics, but humanity.

    “This is a grassroots people’s movement but the ambition of this movement is absolutely revolutionary. Clean energy grows local economies,” he told the crowd.

    The event was held at a community garden in New York City. Musicians and dancers entertained the crowd while a solar-powered pizza truck provided food. A solar powered cell phone charging station was also available.

    Ruffalo – a co-founder of the campaign – called it a “serious issue.” [more at source]

    Are you over your “Age of Ultron” hangover? Well, get excited True Believers because filming is already well underway on Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War.” The sequel has becoming highly anticipated not just because its following up one of one of the studio’s most critically acclaimed productions, “Captain America: Winter Soldier,” but because it may end up being an unintentional mini-“Avengers” movie.”If Robert Downey, Jr. says I’m in ‘Captain America,’ I’m in ‘Captain America’ dammit,” Ruffalo says laughing. “And I will wait for the day that my call sheet shows up at my doorstep or my script. At this point, I’m told that I’m in it by Robert, which I’ll take as biblical, but I just haven’t heard or seen from production yet.” [more at source]

  • Foxcatcher will Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday, September 8 at 6:00PM. Mark is also expected to attend the festival.

    TIFF

    When we first meet Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum), he’s already on the far side of his career peak. Since winning the gold at the 1984 Olympics, his life has been reduced to a lonesome routine of training, enlivened only by the occasional speaking engagement. When Mark is invited by John du Pont (Steve Carrell) to join the US team preparing for the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, he asks his brother to take part, but the smarter, more seasoned Dave (Mark Ruffalo, also appearing at the Festival in Infinitely Polar Bear) refuses to uproot his family for the sake of glories already achieved.

    Mark moves to du Pont’s sprawling estate and becomes enveloped in a cocoon of wealth and eccentricity. Gun-loving, self-aggrandizing, and fiercely patriotic, du Pont spoils Mark with gifts and praise, even while pushing his limits with relentless training. Dave is eventually coaxed into joining Mark on “Team Foxcatcher,” but there is something disquieting about du Pont’s generosity. As they near a triumph at the Seoul Olympics, Mark’s pent-up rage threatens to collide with du Pont’s fevered paranoia, and the combination is disastrous.

  • A 3-D film by Jean-Luc Godard, a hotly anticipated wrestling thriller by Bennett Miller and new works by the seasoned directors David Cronenberg and Mike Leigh are among the 30 films that will make up the main slate of this year’s New York Film Festival, the Film Society of Lincoln Center announced Wednesday.

    Along with Mr. Godard’s “Goodbye to Language,” his 39th feature film, and Mr. Miller’s “Foxcatcher,” about a schizophrenic coach, the 52nd annual festival will show Mr. Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars,” starring Julianne Moore, and Mr. Leigh’s “Mr. Turner,” about the English artist J.M.W. Turner. All four works won awards at the Cannes Film Festival this year.

    Additional titles include “The Wonders,” an Italian film about a family of beekeepers that won the director, Alice Rohrwacher, the Grand Prix at Cannes, and “Whiplash,” by Damien Chazelle, which looks at the struggles of a young musician and collected the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The festival will also show the United States premiere of “Time Out of Mind” by Oren Moverman, who directed “The Messenger” and wrote “Jesus Son” and “I’m Not There.”

    As previously announced, the festival will open with the world premiere of David Fincher’s “Gone Girl,” based on the best-selling book by Gillian Flynn, and close with “Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance,” starring Michael Keaton.

    Its centerpiece film, “Inherent Vice” – described by Kent Jones, director of the New York Film Festival as “a phantasmagorical journey through the past” – was directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and is based on the novel by Thomas Pynchon.

    The festival runs Sept. 26 to Oct. 12. A full list of the main slate films is here.

  • Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton and Stanley Tucci are all in talks to star in Tom McCarthy’s “Spotlight,” which follows the Pulitzer Prize-winning Boston Globe journalists who exposed the Catholic Church’s decades-long cover-up of child molestation in Massachusetts, multiple individuals familiar with the prestige project have told TheWrap.

    Ruffalo is nearing a deal to play Michael Rezendes, while Rachel McAdams is being eyed for the female lead of Sacha Pfeiffer. McAdams has an official offer, though she has not started formal negotiations yet.

    Liev Schreiber and Aaron Eckhart are also circling key roles in the ensemble drama, which McCarthy co-wrote with Josh Singer (“The West Wing”).

    Participant Media is financing the project, which is being produced by Anonymous Content and Rocklin/Faust. Open Road has come on to handle domestic distribution.

    Steve Golin and Michael Sugar of Anonymous Content are producing with Nicole Rocklin and Blye Faust. David Mizner, who brought the project to Rocklin/Faust, will consult and serve as an associate producer. Participant Media’s Jonathan King and Jeff Skoll will executive produce with Open Road’s Tom Ortenberg and Peter Lawson.

    Producers have secured life rights of the Globe reporters responsible, including Spotlight Team members Rezendes, Pfeiffer and Matt Carroll, Spotlight Team editor Walter “Robby” Robinson (Keaton), special projects editor Ben Bradlee Jr. and Globe editor Marty Baron (Schreiber).

    When Baron saw an article in the Globe just after starting as editor about a Boston priest who had molested children, he realized a bigger story could lie behind it. He spurred a team of reporters to spend a year interviewing hundreds of victims and poring over thousands of documents.

    The Globe team eventually discovered that Cardinal Bernard Law had hidden years of serial abuse by moving guilty priests from one parish to another, where they often abused again.

    The team’s articles won them the Pulitzer Prize in 2003 for meritorious public service and set off a wave of revelations around the world.

    The project was announced in April 2010 and described as being in the vein of the classic journalism movie “All the President’s Men.”

    Bradlee Jr. is the son of legendary Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee, who stood behind Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein when their Watergate reporting was assailed by President Richard Nixon and his White House staff.

    Ruffalo and Tucci earned Oscar nominations for their supporting performances in “The Kids Are All Right” and “The Lovely Bones,” respectively.

    Ruffalo and Keaton could find themselves in contention for Oscars again this year between “Foxcatcher” and “Birdman.” The duo are both having strong years.

    Ruffalo starred in HBO’s “The Normal Heart,” John Carney’s “Begin Again” and the Sundance movie “Infinitely Polar Bear,” and he also reprised his role as the Hulk in Marvel’s “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” which hits theaters next year. He’s represented by UTA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

    Keaton co-starred in “RoboCop” and “Need for Speed,” while “Birdman” is scheduled to open the Venice Film Festival and close the New York Film Festival. He’s repped by ICM Partners and Anonymous Content.

    Tucci has also kept busy, co-starred in “Transformers: Age of Extinction” and the “Hunger Games” sequels, in which he plays Caesar Flickerman. He’s repped by CAA and Anonymous Content.

    McAdams can currently be seen opposite Phillip Seymour Hoffman in “A Most Wanted Man,” and next year, she’ll share the screen with Bradley Cooper in Cameron Crowe’s Hawaii-set romantic comedy. She’s represented by WME and Magnolia Entertainment.

  • It’s official. The world will get its first look at “Foxcatcher” at the Cannes Film Festival. The lineup is being announced today and the movie shot in Western Pennsylvania is on the list.

    “Foxcatcher” stars Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Sienna Miller, Vanessa Redgrave and Anthony Michael Hall. Miller directs a screenplay by Dan Futterman and E. Max Frye about a real-life chemical fortune heir who went to prison for killing an Olympic gold medalist and wrestler.

    In January 1996, John du Pont shot and killed David Schultz, a 1984 gold medal winner who came to live and train at the state-of-the-art Foxcatcher National Training Center that du Pont had built on his 800-acre property in Newtown Square, Pa. Wilpen Hall in Sewickely Heights was the stand-in for Foxcatcher Farms during 2012 filming.
