Cobie Joins Netflix Series “Friends From College”

Netflix has found its preliminary cast for Nick Stoller’s upcoming half-hour comedy series Friends From College, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Stoller, who knows a thing or two about engineering bankable frat comedies following both Neighbors and its sequel Sorority Rising, initially hatched the eight-episode ensemble piece alongside wife and producing partner Francesca Delbanco, and it didn’t take long before Netflix began circling.

Now, Friends From College has founds its preliminary cast in Keanu star Keegan-Michael Key, Cobie Smulders – returning to serialized content following her long run on beloved sitcom How I Met Your Mother – Annie Parisse (Vinyl), Nat Faxon (Married), Fred Savage (The Grinder) and Jae Suh Park (The Mindy Project).

A reunion comedy at its core, Stoller and Delbanco’s new venture revolves around a group of Harvard graduates. Now teetering on the edge of their 40s, college is but a distant memory for Netflix’s Friends From College, as they stare down the mouth of adult life, not to mention the “interwoven and oftentimes complicated relationships with each other, the series is a comedic exploration of old friendships, former romantic entanglements and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past.”

New York will play host to Netflix’s Friends From College when production kicks off in the fall. No word yet on a release date, but we’ll be keeping track of this one as it develops. (Source)

“The Intervention” Critics Reviews

Cobie’s latest film — Clea DuVall’s debut feature as writer-director The Intervention was released in limited theatres and iTunes over the weekend. The movie features a fantastic cast of Clea Duvall, Natasha Lyonne, Jason Ritter, Ben Schwartz, Alia Shawkat, Vincent Piazza and Melanie Lynskey. Take a look below at what the critics have to say about the film:

RogerEbert.com — “The Intervention” is no embarrassment, and any time a woman is allowed to direct a film benefits the cause. But if DuVall’s purpose was to provide a snapshot of her generation, she should have sharpened her focus and dug a little deeper.

IndieWire.com — Clea DuVall’s directorial debut “The Intervention” is the perfect indie to watch on VOD this holiday weekend. Featuring one of the year’s strongest indie ensembles “The Intervention” is a clever riff on “The Big Chill.” [The movie] is a sweet delight from start to finish.

TheWrap.com — DuVall’s focus is clearly on her actors, she’s at least gone to the trouble of making sure “The Intervention,” which was shot by cinematographer Polly Morgan, has a thoughtful visual style: She likes to strand characters at the edge of her widescreen frames, underlining their isolation and lack of balance.

Variety.com — While the tone does gradually shade a bit darker, DuVall never abandons humor entirely, save for a couple of climactic speeches (notably Smulder’s) that are admirable for their concision and emotional directness. “The Intervention” treads familiar terrain, yet its frequently droll dialogue, brisk narrative progress and well-drawn if not wildly deep characters consistently avoid the feel of formulaic dreamed.

“Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” Weird Family Dynamic

You’ve seen Cobie Smulders play a badass government-type in her ongoing role as SHIELD agent Maria Hill in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But in Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Smulders gets to play an action hero in a world without flying men and skyscraper-toppling green giants. “I’m not competing fight-wise with superheroes,” she laughs. “It is so exciting to see these superheroes fight one another. The [human characters] are, like, ‘I’m just gonna make some phone calls.’ So it was really fun to be in a movie where you had to fight for your life at every opportunity. No weapons, no superpowered gear, no SHIELD agency beyond you. You’re on the run.”

In the Jack Reacher sequel, Smulders plays Major Susan Turner, a confirmed military badass with Ranger training. When the film begins, Turner has taken over from Tom Cruise’s Reacher as the head of an internal military investigation unit. Turner and Reacher know and respect each other…and there’s the spark of something more. “These are two people who don’t have much time to date,” says Smulders. “They started a relationship just by being friendly and helping each other out, and that blossomed into more. Reacher decides to seek out Turner, and maybe ask her out.”

Things quickly go awry, as they so often do in Reacher’s world, and the two find themselves on the run from an elaborate conspiracy. “It’s an interesting dynamic between these two characters, who are so used to being alone and being in charge. Now they have to work together. Initially, that goes horribly wrong, and they have to reconfigure themselves.” And then comes a further complication: A teenaged girl, played by Heroes Reborn’s Danika Yarosh, who claims to be Reacher’s daughter. “She becomes a big part of the story,” says Smulders. “So now we’re in this weird family dynamic. My character did not ask to be saddled with this type of responsibility, and so there’s a constant clashing of ideas. At the same time, they’re all being hunted, all being chased.” Eat your heart out, Modern Family!

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back opens October 21st. (Source)

“The Avengers: Infinity War” to Be One Film

Disney has confirmed that it will make only one Avengers: Infinity movie rather than the two it had announced previously.

Disney said on Friday that it still plans to release Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War as planned on May 4, 2018. But what was slated to be the second part in that story, Avengers: Infinity War Part II, has now been renamed as an Untitled Avengers project while retaining the May 3, 2019 release date.

The two “Infinity War” movies were announced together in October, 2014, with both directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. Two months ago, the Russo brothers told the Uproxx site that the third and fourth Avengers were being retitled in part to clarify that the films would be two separate films rather than one large film split in half.

Production of “Avengers: Infinity War” is expected to begin later this year. The Russos are directing from a script by the writing team of Christopher Marcus and Stephen McFeely with a back story based on immensely powerful Infinity Gems described in various Marvel stories.

Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner starred in both movies. Downey and Renner have been confirmed to appear in “Infinity Wars.” No word if Cobie will return as Maria Hill. (Source)
