September 03 Brad Pitt Takes Son Knox Out for a Father-Son Day at the Race Track

There’s nothing better than a little father-son bonding!

Brad Pitt took his youngest son Knox, 7, to the MotoGP British Grand Prix race Sunday in Silverstone, England, just days before the release of the documentary Hitting The Apex, a film narrated by Pitt, 51.

The actor, who held on tightly to his son’s hand while making their way through the crowd, was accompanied by Hitting The Apex director Mark Neale. Though the duo were there to promote the upcoming film, Pitt couldn’t help but take some time to watch the race with Knox.

September 03 Venice Film Festival premiere of star-studded Martin Scorsese short canceled

The Venice Film Festival premiere of Martin Scorsese’s star-studded new short film that was set for next month has been canceled.

“The Biennale of Venice regrets to announce that the short film The Audition by Martin Scorsese will not be presented at the 72nd Venice International Film Festival,” festival organizers said in a statement to EW. “We have just been informed by the production that due to unexpected technical problems the film could not be here in time.”

Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, Brad Pitt, and Scorsese himself star in The Audition, which casts the high-wattage actors as themselves in a battle to win a part in Scorsese’s next (fake) film. The short was first announced back in August of last year, and was made, in part, to promote Melco-Crown Entertainment casinos in Macau and Manila. Terrence Winter, screenwriter of Scorsese and DiCaprio’s The Wolf of Wall Street, wrote the script for The Audition, which was produced by Brett Ratner.

Earlier this year, teaser trailers for the short debuted online, but were later removed.

August 29 Pitt sets pulses racing in sleepy Greyabbey village as filming picks up pace

Hollywood A-listers, catering, security, hundreds of trucks and even a pack of baying fox hounds, that’s what it takes to film The Lost City of Z in Co Down

They arrived under cover of darkness, a rumbling crowd of anonymous white vans, interspersed with Land Rovers, jeeps and catering trucks, packed with riggers, runners and security guards.

The cavalcade made its way along the winding country roads from Belfast to Greyabbey on beautiful Strangford Lough.

They edged along Newtownards Rd, too heavy for the little village and a bad bend at quaint Orange Tree House.

And finally parked up military fashion on farm land.

It was only as daylight broke that they could see the stunning surroundings of a piece of land rising out of the mist – they were at an island, or as locals call it, T’Island.

And bang in the middle of this remote beauty spot they could see a little white washed cottage with no electric or running water.

But it was here that Hollywood A-list Brad Pitt had agreed to film scenes for his movie, The Lost City of Z.

And for more than three days they camped out, enduring wind, rain, hail and just a little sunshine until filming came to an end on Friday morning.

August 29 ‘Lewis And Clark’ With Will Resume Shooting Next Spring

With production halted, and director John Curran (“The Painted Veil,” “Stone,” “Tracks”) and DP Rob Hardy (“Ex Machina,” “Tracks,” “Testament Of Youth”) booted for “creative reasons,” HBO probably had every reasonable right to look at “Lewis And Clark” and determine that maybe it’s best just to shutter the whole thing. It wouldn’t be the first time they’ve halted a show midstream (please see David Fincher’s “Videosyncrazy”) but it seems they’ve got faith the ship can be turned around.

Deadline reports that production will resume on the show next spring in Calgary, when weather will be more hospitable to the show which had been going through a “rough shoot” this summer. Produced by Brad Pitt and Tom Hanks, the six-hour miniseries starring Casey Affleck and Matthias Schoenaerts is adapted from the book “Undaunted Courage” by Stephen E. Ambrose, and follows the explorers Lewis and Clark on their journey down the Missouri River. Whatever was going wrong previously, it seems HBO believes that the foundation is strong enough to revive things next year.

August 25 A24 Teams With Brad Pitt’s Plan B for ‘Moonlight’

Three-year-old A24 is partnering with Brad Pitt’s Plan B and Adele Romanski to produce and finance coming-of-age story “Moonlight.”

Barry Jenkins will direct from his own his script, based on the Tarell McCraney play “In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue.” The movie is set in Miami during the war on drugs.

A24 is financing and owns worldwide rights with filming to take place in Miami in the fall. Jenkins directed 2009’s “Medicine for Melancholy.”

A24 announced in June that it was producing real-estate drama “The Liar’s Ball” with director J.C. Chandor, Neal Dodson and Anna Gerb. A24’s top box office performers have been “Ex Machina,” which has crossed $25 million domestically, and James Franco’s “Spring Breakers,” which grossed $14 million in 2013.

It also teamed with DirecTV to release release movies exclusively on the satellite TV provider before they hit theaters, including Ryan Reynolds’ “Mississippi Grind”; Charlize Theron’s thriller “Dark Places”; the Aubrey Plaza-starrer “Life After Beth”; Atom Egoyan’s “Captive,” starring Reynolds; and Julius Avery’s directorial debut, “Son of a Gun,” with Ewan McGregor and Brenton Thwaites.

“We are extremely proud to be involved with this heartfelt, groundbreaking film,” said A24 in a statement. “The opportunity to work with Barry, one of the most talented and daring contemporary directors, and Plan B, who consistently provide a home for filmmakers, is very exciting. We look forward to the collaboration.”
