LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Wonder Woman" producer Charles Roven will receive the David O. Selznick Achievement Award at the Producers Guild Awards next year.
The Producers Guild of America chairs Donald De Line and Amy Pascal said Tuesday that Roven brings a seriousness of craft to every set he runs. The award recognizes a producer's body of work.
Roven's credits include Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy and "American Hustle," for which he received an Oscar nomination.
TORONTO (AP) — Aaron Sorkin was sitting in a restaurant with producers Amy Pascal and Mark Gordon, ticking off the names of top Hollywood directors who might be a good fit for the script Sorkin had just finished: "Molly's Game," a drama about the so-called "poker princess" Molly Bloom.
"When we got to the end, Mark and Amy said, 'But we think you should direct it,'" Sorkin recalled in an interview. "And I grabbed at the chance."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — In November 2014, then Sony chief Amy Pascal sent an email to the team behind their planned "Ghostbusters" reboot.
"I saw (Jerry) Weintraub last night and he told me that he and (Warner Bros.) were doing a female version of ("Ocean's Eleven"). We gotta beat everyone," Pascal wrote.
The twist on their new "Ghostbusters," of course, was that it was to star women as the paranormal hunters instead of men.
