Tom Holland's 'Uncharted' Moves Back 3 Months to 2021. The studio also removed 'Masters of the Universe' from its schedule. On Friday night, Sony shifted a few of its release dates, including Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg's long-gestating videogame adaptation Uncharted. The film has moved back three months and will now open March 5, 2021. The move comes after the exit of filmmaker Travis Knight late last year. The Hollywood Reporter reported earlier this month that Venom and Zombieland filmmaker Ruben Fleischer was Sony's top choice to take over the job. On Friday, the studio also took its Masters of the Universe off the calendar (it previously had been set for Uncharted's new date). Sony has been developing the He-Man project since 2007, but in October THR reported the studio was mulling selling off the movie to Netflix. It has Noah Centineo attached to star. In other moves, the studio shifted the rom-com Happiest Season back five days to Nov. 25 and moved Kevin Hart's Fatherhood a few days to Jan. 15, 2021. (Hollywood Reporter)

Billy Crudup Reveals He and Ex Mary-Louise Parker Starred in Son William's Student Film. From co-parenting to costarring! Billy Crudup and his ex-Mary-Louise Parker appeared in their 16-year-old son William's student film. "He's a creative engine and likes to write and direct his own material at school," the actor, 51, exclusively reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly. "One of his films recently starred me and his mom, so he gets all the best talent right there." While the teenager welcomed his parents' help with his project, William generally has "harsh" comments about the Morning Show star's work. "He likes to critique," the New York native explains. "He's 16, so that's what they do. So that's fun. But he's [also] incredibly supportive." Crudup shared some of his son's criticism, including, "You suck, Dad." The Tony nominee and Parker, 55, welcomed William in 2004, shortly after Crudup ended their relationship to date Claire Danes. The Weeds alum addressed her ex's infidelity a decade later, telling Savannah Guthrie: "It's private to me and always will be." Danes, 40, addressed the affair in October 2015 during a Howard Stern interview, saying, "I didn't know how not to do that. I was just in love with him and needed to explore that. I was 24. ... I didn't quite know what those consequences would be." The Homeland star went on to say that she and the Emmy winner are still on "friendly" terms. She went on to marry Hugh Dancy in 2009. As for Parker, the Dear Mr. You author adopted her daughter, Caroline, from Ethiopia in 2007. Crudup started working with Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon on Apple TV+'s The Morning Show in 2019 and praised the actresses. "It's impressive to see people who are at a point in their careers where they could do anything that they wanted to, [like] retire and maybe do easy projects, but take on something that's so ambitious," he tells Us. "The way that they [performed] as producers and as actors is staggering to me, and so I was just thrilled to be a part of the team."

'My Salinger Year' to Open Berlin Film Festival. Margaret Qualley stars as an assistant to J.D. Salinger's literary agent, played by Sigourney Weaver. My Salinger Year, a literary drama starring Margaret Qualley and Sigourney Weaver, will open the 70th Berlin International Film Festival. The drama, from director Philippe Falardeau, stars Qualley as an aspiring poet working as an assistant to literary agent Margaret (Sigourney Weaver). Qualley's main job is to answer fan mail directed to the agency's top writer, the notoriously secretive J.D. Salinger, author of The Catcher in the Rye. Douglas Booth (The Dirt) co-stars. The film, based on the novel of the same name by Joanna Rakoff, will have its world premiere out-of-competition in Berlin. "We are delighted to open the 70th edition of the festival with a coming-of-age story that takes the viewpoint of the protagonist who has a fresh perspective, which is in no way nave," said Berlin festival artistic director Carlo Chatrian. "Philippe Falardeau depicts the small NYC literary world of the 1990s with humor and a sweet note, but he never forgets the 21st century we are living in or the unifying role that art plays in all of our lives." Director Falardeau is no stranger to Berlin, having presented his 2009 drama It's Not Me, I Swear! in the festival's in Generation sidebar, where it won both the Crystal Bear for Best Film and the Grand Prix of the Generation Kplus International Jury. Falardeau's work includes the 2014 biopic The Good Lie starring Reese Witherspoon and the Oscar-nominated Quebecois drama Monsieur Lazhar(2011). "I'm thrilled that My Salinger Year will open the 2020 Berlinale. We couldn't have hoped for a better world premiere," said Falardeau. My Salinger Year was produced by Canada's microscope and Parallel Films in Ireland. Memento Films International are handling international sales with UTA handling domestic. The 70th Berlin International Film Festival runs Feb. 20-March 1. Berlin will unveil its full competition lineup next week. (Hollywood Reporter)
