Tom Ford to Team with Jake Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams, George Clooney for 'Nocturnal Animals'

Many more details have emerged about Tom Ford's follow-up film project to the critically-acclaimed A Single Man.

Tom_fordThe Hollywood Reporter reveals:

Ford is attached to direct Nocturnal Animals, the adaptation of an Austin Wright book titled Tony and Susan. Ford wrote the script for the postmodern noir thriller and will direct while [George] Clooney will produce with his Smokehouse Pictures partner Grant Heslov.

Wright’s book was initially published in 1993 and tells of a woman named Susan who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband, a man whom she left 20 years earlier, asking for her opinion.

The book then tracks two stories: the story in the novel, titled Nocturnal Animals, which tells of a man whose family vacation turns violent and deadly; and the story of Susan, who finds herself recalling her first marriage and confronting some dark truths about herself.

Jake Gyllenhaal is attached to star and Amy Adams is in talks to co-star. "Insiders also say that Joaquin Phoenix and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are also being sought for leading roles," according to THR.

Ford told WWD last month that his shooting window for the film is September 15 to December, and if he misses it, the project must wait till next year because of his grueling fashion schedule.


Disney's New 'Tomorrowland' Trailer Shows A Future In Peril - WATCH

Let it never be said that Disney doesn’t know how to turn a ride, or in this case a land within its own theme parks, into what appears to be an epic film. The latest trailer for Tomorrowland gives us a better--though still cryptic--idea of just what Brad Bird has in store for his second live-action feature film.

The future, as luck would have it, seems to be in some sort of dire peril at the hands of a nefarious Hugh Laurie. Helpless to fend off the forces of evil himself, Amal Alamuddin’s husband enlists the help of a young girl whose imagination will probably save the day. Silly as it all may sound, the film’s visuals are absolutely gorgeous and just might convince you to give it a shot when it hits theaters in May.

The zoo’s decision created abacklash on social media on Wednesday, with some calling the zoo’s staff members “serial killers” and “murderers.” The zoo justified the killings of the two parents, ages 14 and 16, and their cubs on the grounds of genetic purity and conservation, noting that the new lion would invariably prey on the cubs, while there was a risk that the older male lion would try to breed with one of the female lions that were his offspring."

George Clooney Adds Voice of Support to Intensifying Protests in Ukraine: VIDEO

Kiev

Protests in Kiev over Ukrainian President Viktor F. Yanukovich's refusal to keep promises to sign agreements that would strengthen ties between Ukraine and the European Union intensified over the weekend, with protesters bringing down a massive statue of Lenin, the NYT reports:

International concern over the unrest in Ukraine appeared to deepen on Sunday, as the United Nations secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, telephoned Mr. Yanukovich and Western leaders continued to call on him to respond to the demonstrators’ demands. The European Union has been eager to draw Ukraine, a nation of 46 million, into closer alliance with the West, while Russia has sought to safeguard its major economic and political interests in its close neighbor. Making the crisis more acute, Ukraine is teetering on the verge of bankruptcy and is desperate for financial assistance from abroad.

The spreading disorder set off a new round of speculation that Mr. Yanukovich would declare a state of emergency and potentially turn again to force by ordering the removal of demonstrators who have occupied Independence Square and several public buildings, including Kiev’s City Hall. There were reports on Sunday that the security services were preparing to bring charges of treason against three opposition leaders in Parliament who have been at the forefront of the demonstrations.

Meanwhile, pro-government supporters are using gay rights as an excuse for their support:

Pro-government demonstrators deployed a new tactic Friday to counter protests in favor of European integration, marching through the capital, Kiev, to oppose homosexuality, which they said would accompany a greater European Union role in Ukrainian affairs. Carrying religious icons and singing hymns, the group of about 1,000 Orthodox Christian supporters of President Viktor Yanukovych filed out of a monastery and marched to a city park. Marchers said they favored allegiance to Russia rather than Europe because Russia more closely matches the cultural and religious heritage of Ukraine, which was once part of the Soviet Union. They intend to draw attention to what they characterize as overly liberal European social values, they said.

The protests have captured international attention, and are gaining some high-profile supporters. Actor George Clooney taped a message for the people of Ukraine which began spreading on the internet today.

Watch it, and the statue coming down, AFTER THE JUMP...

UPDATE: According to late reports, it appears as if riot police are preparing to storm the square.
