Dark PlacesComments Off on Chloe Moretz In Talks To Join Charlize Theron In Dark Places
Chloe Grace Moretz has been taking on dark roles for a while now. The actress has made a name for herself with strong performances in some fantastically dark characters, including Mindy Macready (aka Hit-Girl) in Kick-Ass, and the strange and predatory Abby in Let Me In. Possibly joining the list is Dark Places, the feature adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s novel, in which Moretz is in talks to play Diondra.
Charlize Theron is on board to co-produce the film, as well as star in the project, playing Libby Day, a woman who once testified against her brother, Ben, believing him to have murdered their mother and two sisters when she was just seven. Twenty-five years later, Libby’s confronted by a group called the Kill Club who are interested in learning the details of the murder in the hopes of finding proof that they might be able to use to free Ben. Deadline reports that Moretz is in negotiations to play the role of Diondra in the story, though they don’t offer any specifics on the character, beyond her name.
Fans of the book will likely have something to say on whether or not the role is right for Moretz. Regardless, we know she is well equipped to handle dark roles (or places). And her planned participation in Dark Places is just one of numerous projects coming up for the actor. Not only is she reprising her role as Hit-Girl for Kick-Ass 2, but she’s also set to play the title role in the upcoming new adaptation of Stephen King’s Carrie.

News & GossipComments Off on Jennifer Lawrence, Charlize Theron And Leonardo DiCaprio To Honour Bill Clinton For Promoting Gay Equality
The ex-President is to receive the first ‘Advocate for Change Award’ at the GLAAD Media Awards for his work promoting gay and lesbian causes. Clinton has reportedly been selected for the prize because he promoted LGBT Americans both while President and after he’d left office.
GLAAD spokesperson Wilson Cruz paid said in a statement: “President Clinton’s support of the LGBT community and recognition that DOMA, the so-called Defence of Marriage Act, is unconstitutional and should be struck down shows that the political landscape continues to change in favour of LGBT equality.” “Leaders and allies like President Clinton are critical to moving our march for equality forward,” he added according to Digital Spy.
The annual awards bash was estabilshed by the organisation in 1990, and has honoured the likes of Tracey Ullman, Antonio Banderas, Megan Mullally, Sharon Stone and Lady GaGa.
Hollywood has long been known for its campaigning on gay issues, with tinseltown’s stars including not just some of the gay community’s most famous names like Ellen DeGeneres, but also its most outspoken advocates like George Clooney.

News & GossipComments Off on Fred Savage to Direct Charlize Theron Vehicle ‘Ladies Night’ (Exclusive)
Fred Savage is in negotiations to direct Charlize Theron in the comedy Ladies Night.
David Ellison’s Skydance Productions is financing the film, which is being eyed as an early 2014 production.
The project represents another major jump in the unlikely career evolution of Savage, a one-time child actor who has morphed into one of Hollywood’s hottest TV directors. The Wonder Years star is bucking the trend of child actors with downward career trajectories and instead is following in the footsteps of Ron Howard, Jodie Foster and Brian Robbins, who became big-screen directors working with A-list talent.
The Bridesmaids-esque comedy also marks a departure for Theron, who rarely works in the genre (though she recently signed on for the Seth MacFarlane comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West). Theron will star in and produce Ladies Night, which centers on a woman who, when confronted with her longtime boyfriend’s inability to commit, decides to have one last night on the town with her girlfriends before uprooting her life and moving to New York.
David Caspe (Happy Endings) wrote the screenplay based on his original pitch. Theron has been developing with Beth Kono and AJ Dix through their Denver and Delilah banner.
Ladies Night has no distributor yet. Ellison will produce alongside Skydance’s Dana Goldberg. Upcoming Skydance projects include G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Star Trek Into Darkness and World War Z.
Savage’s TV helming credits include Modern Family and 2 Broke Girls. This pilot season, he was tapped to direct two pilots: Jacked Up for CBS/Sony/Happy Madison and The McCarthys at CBS — pulling off the rare double of doing a single- and a multicamera comedy.
Savage is repped by CAA and attorney Karl Austen.
Theron, whose upcoming credits include Mad Max: Fury Road, is handled by WME and attorneys Gretchen Rush and Steve Warren.

CharitiesComments Off on Charlize Theron Teams Up With TOMS for a Cause
For their third collaboration, philanthropic footwear company TOMS and the always-stunning Charlize Theron have joined forces to design a limited-edition espadrille that benefits the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project (CTAOP).
During last Friday’s launch celebration at the new TOMS flagship, the South African-born starlet explained to E! why she and founder Blake Mycoskie are a perfect pair: “We saw great opportunity to enhance each other’s dreams of change in a way that might not have been able to happen if we didn’t partner […] I’m not ever going to get married, but this is the closest I’m going to get to a marriage that actually works.”
The orange shoe, which supports vital HIV prevention programs in Africa, features CTAOP’s sunshine logo and motto. Watch Theron discuss the collab below and shop women’s ($58) and kids ($34) styles here.
Charlize was wearing Dior Couture in this years 85th Academy Awards. I’ve added 16 photos of Charlize in the gallery. I’ll add more once I get them. I’ll also be adding a video in the Video section! Enjoy!
