The third season of “True Detective” is slowly coming together, with Mahershala Ali slated to star, and Jeremy Saulnier (“Blue Ruin,” “Green Room“) lined up to direct. However, fans have been wishing for a reunion of…

It’s absolutely an oversimplification to say no one does grumpy like Frances McDormand these days. Now don’t overact. That’s a compliment. McDormand gives her characters a nuance and depth her the screenwriters and directors she works with often can’t articulate.  When she’s playing cranky there is a fire behind her eyes that could stop a charging bear dead in its tracks.

Cameras are rolling again on Lucasfilm‘s Han Solo spinoff, after a very public hiccup that saw original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller exit the project after butting creative heads with studio executives. In their place, Ron Howard has stepped in, taking charge of the film as it winds down its final weeks of principal photography, and gears up for reshoots later this summer. It’s rare for any blockbuster to go through this kind drama, particularly when it involves a brand as valuable as “Star Wars.” But according to star Woody Harrelson, things will be okay.
