Alex Ritman “May December” breakout Charles Melton has lined up another major feature and is set to star alongside Elizabeth Olsen in Todd Solondz‘s next film, the darkly comic “Love Child.” Killer Films (“Past Lives,” “May December”), 2AM (“Past Lives”) Volition Media (“Sam and Kate,” “Land of Bad”) and Gramercy Park Media (“The Fabulous Four,” “Blood for Dust”) are teaming with Rocket Science to bring the project to this week’s European Film Market. “Love Child” follows Misty, who is stuck in a loveless marriage to a brutish husband. Junior, her precocious 11-year-old is her only consolation.
When Easy, a handsome vagabond stranger, appears, Junior hatches a plan to get rid of his father so that his mother can marry him instead. But things end up backfiring, so Junior comes up with yet another plan, this one even more devious, and with more disastrous—and unexpected—consequences. Cindy Bru of Volition Media, Christine Vachon of Killer Films, David Hinojosa of 2AM and Ford Corbett of Gramercy Park Media will produce.
Michael Jefferson, Adam Beasley, Atilla Yucer, Joshua Harris and Steven Farneth will executive produce. The film is fully financed by Volition Media and Gramercy Park Media. Rocket Science is handling international sales at EFM; Cinetic Media and WME co-represent U.S rights.

Donna Summer has sued Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign for the alleged illegal use of ‘I Feel Love’ on their collaborative album ‘Vultures 1’.According to the Associated Press, the copyright infringement lawsuit was filed in federal court in Los Angeles, California yesterday (February 27) by Summer’s husband Bruce Sudano in his role as executor of the estate.The suit alleges that representatives of West had asked permission to use the 1977 song on the track ‘Good (Don’t Die)’. However, it claims they were rejected because the Summer estate “wanted no association with West’s controversial history”.Sudano claims that West and Ty then approached Summer’s record label, Universal Music Enterprises, in a bid to be granted permission, but the label also denied their request.Ye and Ty have been accused of “shamelessly” including re-recorded parts of the hit that were “instantly recognisable” on the ‘Vultures 1’ cut.The suit states: “In the face of this rejection, defendants arrogantly and unilaterally decided they would simply steal ‘I Feel Love’ and use it without permission.”The lawsuit names both West and Ty as defendants, as well as Yeezy Record Label, LLC, the company Yzy Snd, and 10 Does.

After cleaning house during awards season, major awards taken at SAG, The Indie Spirit Awards, the Golden Globes, the Emmys, and the PGAs, the Netflix series, “Beef,” once seen as a limited series, is coming back for season two, but more as an anthology series it sounds like. Initially starring Ali Wong and Steven Yeun, the series centered on a road rage incident between two strangers and the ensuing vengeful feud that makes them both go unhinged.
EXCLUSIVE: When Beef creator and EP Lee Sung Jin accepted the umpteenth award for the limited series at yesterday’s Spirit Awards, he said he underestimated the enjoyment of the dopamine that comes with winning, and that he will miss it.

Palme d’Ors don’t grow on trees, so it’s small wonder that the world has fallen for Justine Triet’sAnatomy of a Fall, and the outstanding lead performance of Sandra Hüller, since it won the Cannes Film Festival’s top prize. Hüller’s turn dominates the ‘sort of’ courtroom drama of the film, in which her German novelist — also called Sandra — is accused of pushing her French husband Samuel (Samuel Theis), also a writer, from the top floor of their alpine home. Sandra maintains he fell, or jumped, and the film spends much of its runtime chewing over the truth, though never revealing it.
Joseph Quinn‘s busy film slate gets even busier. Deadline reports that one of Hollywood’s fastest-rising stars adds another upcoming movie to his roster: an untitled war pic from A24, with Alex Garland and Ray Mendoza co-directing.

When Australian writer Lily Brett published her novel Too Many Men in 2001, critics marvelled at the light, comic tone she had managed to strike in a novel about the lasting impact of the Holocaust, passed down from one generation to the next. Families have their customary jokes; they squabble over the dinner table; they may be funny characters but, underneath it all, there is a consciousness of pain. That’s not an easy balance to strike, as a writer or as an actor.
Prince Harry's recent interview with Good Morning America, where he spoke of King Charles' recent cancer diagnosis, has left Royal friends furious.

Larry David, claiming that the latest episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm “lied” by portraying conservatives as “racists and rednecks”.The long-running HBO comedy series recently kicked off its 12th and final season, and the episode that angered Greene saw David (playing an exaggerated version of himself) arrested for offering a voter a sip of water while queuing at a polling booth on a boiling hot day.The gesture apparently violated the state law in Georgia, which prevents people from giving food and drink to voters waiting in line.In another scene, David is forced to go door-to-door in Atlanta, seeking a replacement for a racist lawn statue he accidentally damaged at an Airbnb, which leads to a confrontation with an angry Trump supporter in a MAGA (Make America Great Again) hat.In a lengthy post on X (formerly Twittter), Greene said that Curb Your Enthusiasm “lied” by painting conservatives and Trump supports as “racists and rednecks”.The right-wing politician also accused the episode of “making fun of our good new law that stops the Stacey Abrams vote pandering machine and prevents voter fraud”.“We in Georgia are fed up with disgusting Hollywood and their disgusting values and elite judgement in our state that is trying to turn GA blue!” she wrote.I watched this week’s episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm and it was a glaring reminder of why most Georgian’s resent Republicans in our state for inviting the nasty commies from California, the Hollywood elites, into our state by dishing out Hollywood tax credits.This week’s…— Marjorie Taylor Greene
