Jeff Bridges’ FX Pilot ‘Old Man’ Casts E.J. Bonilla, Leem Lubany (Exclusive)

  • Variety
The FX drama pilot “The Old Man” starring Jeff Bridges has added two new cast members.

Variety has learned exclusively that both Leem Lubany and E.J. Bonilla have joined the project. In addition to Bridges, they join previously announced cast members John Lithgow, Amy Brenneman, and Alia Shawkat.

Based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Thomas Perry, the series centers on Dan Chase (Bridges), who absconded from the CIA decades ago and has been living off the grid since.

Film Review: Will Smith in ‘Gemini Man’

Film Review: Will Smith in ‘Gemini Man’
Sharpshooter assassin Henry Brogan is 51 years old. Time to call it quits, he figures, popping the 72nd kill of his career from what looks to be at least a mile away. Only Brogan can make a shot like that. But his conscience is starting to catch up with him and now he’s going to retire, build birdhouses back home in Georgia, or whatever movie characters plan to do in their pension years. Seems like a waste of a very specific talent, but don’t worry. Before Brogan can attend his first Bingo night, the agency that employed him sends the highest-concept killer imaginable to wipe him out: Junior, a quarter-century younger clone of Brogan.

In theory, “Gemini Man” offers quite the novelty, a chance to witness an older A-list star (Will Smith) face off against a deadly computer-generated version of himself. In practice, it’s been a nearly impossible project to get made,

Movie Review – The Kitchen (2019)

The Kitchen, 2019.

Written and Directed by Andrea Berloff.

Starring Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, Elisabeth Moss, Domhnall Gleeson, James Badge Dale, Brian d’Arcy James, Margo Martindale, Common, Bill Camp, Jeremy Bobb, E.J. Bonilla, Wayne Duvall, Annabella Sciorra, and Myk Watford.

Synopsis:

The wives of New York gangsters in Hell’s Kitchen in the 1970s continue to operate their husbands’ rackets after they’re locked up in prison.

For a movie that tosses three women into the oven known as Hell’s Kitchen, a man’s world as the soundtrack reminds us over the opening credits, success sort of comes easy for the trio. That’s a shame considering these women (who are struggling financially after the FBI raids their mobster husbands placing them in jail for three years each) should be facing an uphill battle for obvious reasons; they are women in the 70s not just trying to work, but

This week sees the release of The Kitchen, a new film from Andrea Berloff based on the Vertigo comic book.

Left with little but a sharp ax to grind, the ladies take the Irish mafia’s matters into their own hands—proving unexpectedly adept at everything from running the rackets to taking out the competition…

‘The Kitchen’ Review: Mob Movies and Comic Book Adaptations Get a Violent, Vivid Gender-Swapped Entry

‘The Kitchen’ Review: Mob Movies and Comic Book Adaptations Get a Violent, Vivid Gender-Swapped Entry
Kathy is good at it. Claire relishes the violence. Ruby wants to control her own destiny. Drawn together by circumstance — or, more appropriately, because their individually unsatisfying husbands all worked together, badly enough that the cops busted them and now their women need to pick up the pieces — the trio at the center of Andrea Berloff’s “The Kitchen” sets about building their own criminal empire with surprising results.

Set in the grit and grime of ’70s-era New York City, mostly in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of its title, Berloff’s feature directorial debut adds a vivid, and yes, very violent new twist on the mob genre, swapping in scrappy ladies in a typically male-dominated world.

That’s the hook of both the film and the story that plays out within it, as Berloff’s film opens with an ill-fated mob job that throws Jimmy (Brian d’Arcy James

Win Free Passes To The St. Louis Advance Screening Of The Kitchen

New York City, 1978. The 20 blocks of pawnshops, porn palaces and dive bars between 8th Avenue and the Hudson River owned by the Irish mafia and known as Hell’s Kitchen was never the easiest place to live. Or the safest. But for mob wives Kathy, Ruby and Claire–played by Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, and Elisabeth Moss–things are about to take a radical, dramatic turn. When their husbands are sent to prison by the FBI the women take business into their own hands, running the rackets and taking out the competition…literally. Now they own the neighborhood. The gritty, female-driven mob drama “The Kitchen,” from New Line Cinema and Bron Creative, is written and directed by Andrea Berloff, who was nominated for an Oscar for Original Screenplay for “Straight Outta Compton.”

The Kitchen Trailer: McCarthy, Moss & Haddish Join the Mafia

New Line Cinema has dropped the first trailer for The Kitchen. The movie is a gritty, female-driven mob drama, written and directed by Andrea Berloff. Berloff is best known for her Academy Award nominated Straight Outta Compton screenplay, in addition to her acting and directing work. Right from the start, the movie doesn't look like what one would think it is with Melissa McCarthy and Tiffany Haddish leading the cast. Many instantly believe the project is going to be a comedy, but that definitely is not the case this time around.

The Kitchen stars Melissa McCarthy (Can You Ever Forgive Me?), Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip), and Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale) as three 1978 Hell's Kitchen housewives whose mobster husbands are sent to prison by the FBI.
