Julia Roberts joins Billy Ray's remake of Oscar winner 'The Secret in Their Eyes'

Filming begins in October

You might recall an Argentinian film from a few years back called "The Secret in Their Eyes." It was a significant player in the awards season in that it bested both "The White Ribbon" and "A Prophet" in the Best Foreign Film Category, and ever since, Hollywood has been keen on an English remake. Now, the project has landed a high profile female lead with an eye toward sales in Toronto: Julia Roberts.

The Oscars are coming! The Oscars are coming!

Once more with feeling...

I'll try to be brief. With the triple threat of Venice, Telluride and Toronto, we've entered that foggy realm known to the industry as "awards season." And with it we're getting, like clockwork, self-satisfied dismissals of this time of year, pieces that surmise that the Oscar frame is "ruining movies," and that coverage of the prestige months (i.e., places like In Contention) are a root of the problem. I suppose it's time for a reminder that such a position is nonsense.

What kind of star will Jack O'Connell become?

What kind of star will Jack O'Connell become?

The 'Unbroken' star has already dazzled in 'Starred Up' and ''71'

In the space of a week I've finally caught up to David Mackenzie's "Starred Up," which premiered at the 2013 Telluride Film Festival and made its way to theaters and VOD via Tribeca Film last weekend, and Yann Demange's "'71," which premiered at the Berlinale in February and finally resurfaced again in Telluride last week. The common denominator is actor Jack O'Connell, and with his major break-out project "Unbroken" set for release this December, the question becomes clear: what trajectory will this promising new career take?

The CW's 'Arrow' finds its Ra's Al Ghul and it's not Liam Neeson

Aussie veteran of 'Killer Elite' and 'Riddick' will play the League of Assassins leader

Liam Neeson may have told reporters last week that he would gladly reprise his role as Ra's Al Ghul for The CW's "Arrow," but to the surprise of literally nobody a different actor has been set for the part.

On Thursday (September 4) morning, "Arrow" star Stephen Amell coyly tweeted "Please welcome Matt Nable to Arrow. You know who he's playing." And in case you didn't know who he's playing, Amell included a picture of DC Comics' supervillain and League of Assassins frontman Ra's Al Ghul, most famously played by Neeson in "Batman Begins."

Joan Rivers challenged Hollywood's stance on women directors with 'Rabbit Test'

Could she have had Woody Allen's career if things had gone differently?

Could Joan Rivers have had the same career as Woody Allen?

It might seem an odd question if you only know Rivers from her talk show omnipresence and her work on E!, but there was a time when she had a chance to break into film the same way some of her comic peers were, and I can't help but wonder what would have happened if "Rabbit Test" had worked.

When she broke through as a comic in the mid-'60s, she already had a fully-formed comic voice. She was from New York, and there was an edge to her work from the very start. She had an attitude about aesthetic beauty, about celebrity, about women in culture. She was one of those comics who straddled an older tradition of comedy, based on careful joke structure and a sort of surface level engagement and a newer tradition, in which taboos were smashed and society was fair game for deeper examination.
