‘Frozen 2’: Evan Rachel Wood, Sterling K. Brow…

Evan Rachel Wood and Sterling K. Brown are in talks to lend their voices to Disney’s “Frozen 2,” the sequel to the 2013 smash hit.

Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, and Josh Gad are returning to reprise their roles as Elsa, Anna, and Olaf, respectively.

Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck will also be back to direct. Lee is writing the script, while Peter Del Vecho is producing the animated film.

“Frozen 2” is set to bow on Nov. 27, 2019.

“Frozen” generated nearly $1.3 billion at the worldwide box office and has become a merchandising juggernaut, breaking sales records on home video and at Disney’s stores. The musical won the Academy Award for best animated film in 2014.

The movie has also been adapted for the stage, becoming a Broadway hit and earning three Tony Award nominations this year.

Lee was recently named chief creative officer at Walt Disney Animation Studios, following John Lasseter’s departure. She will split Lasseter’s duties with Pete Docter, who will oversee Pixar Animation Studios.

Both Wood and Brown are hot off the heels of their Emmy nominations, announced on Thursday morning. Wood is up for her work on HBO’s “Westworld,” and Brown is nominated for NBC’s “This Is Us” and Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”

Evan Rachel Wood, Reeve Carney to Star in Live…

Evan Rachel Wood and Penny Dreadful alum Reeve Carney are joining the ensemble of For the Record: Tarantino, the cabaret musical that will be revived July 12-15 for six performances at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills.

Four 7 p.m. shows went on sale last week and sold out within 24 hours. The added shows are on sale now at the Wallis site.

Since its creation by Shane Scheel and Anderson Davis in 2010, For the Record has been serving up live musical tributes to filmmaking icons, mashing up scenes and iconic songs from their greatest hits. John Hughes, Baz Luhrmann, the Coen brothers, Paul Thomas Anderson, Martin Scorsese, Robert Zemeckis and Garry and Penny Marshall have all received the For the Record treatment, but to mark the 25 anniversary of Pulp Fiction, the company is reviving its first production, a celebration of Quentin Tarantino’s canon.

Wood, who previously was featured in For the Record: Dear John Hughes, will star as “The Blonde Fox,” a character inspired by Pulp Fiction’s Mia Wallace and Kill Bill’s Beatrix Kiddo, while Carney will embody a character inspired by Pulp Fiction’s Vincent Vega and Django Unchained’s Dr. King Schultz. Ty Taylor, Dionne Gipson, Olivia Kuper Harris, Carrie Manolakos, TV Carpio, James Byous, Rogelio Douglas Jr. and Patrick Mulvey fill out the ensemble.

For the Record: Tarantino will be directed by Davis and co-produced by Scheel and Siobhan O’Neill. The production will feature songs including “Son of a Preacher Man,” “Stuck in the Middle With You” and “Bang Bang,” with musical supervision and arrangements by Jesse Vargas and vocal design by AnnMarie Milazzo. Michael Berger is designing the lighting, Ben Soldate the sound and Steve Mazurek the costumes.

Julie Taymor’s ‘Across the Universe’ Set for T…

Fathom Events has set Julie Taymor’s “Across the Universe” has been set for a re-release on July 29, July 31 and Aug. 1 at more than 450 theaters.

Fathom, which is jointly owned by the AMC, Cinemark and Regal chains, made the announcement Monday and said the 2007 movie is being shown to commemorate the 50th anniversary of 1968 — which served as the setting for the film and its 33 songs by The Beatles including “Hey Jude” and “All You Need Is Love.”

Evan Rachel Wood and Jim Sturgess star as Lucy and Jude, a couple whose love inspires them to become involved with the protests and counter-culture movement that dominated the cultural landscape in 1968.

“‘Across the Universe’ has developed an extraordinary following since its release in 2007,” Fathom Events VP of Studio Relations Tom Lucas said. “This theatrical re-release presents an amazing opportunity for those fans to see, hear and feel this revolutionary film in a very unique way on the big screen.”

Evan Rachel Wood endures hunger strike in prot…

‘Doing nothing’ wasn’t an option for Evan Rachel Wood.

The Westworld actress spent the weekend at the border between Texas and Mexico, helping families who have been separated as a result of President Donald Trump’s ‘zero tolerance’ policy for people caught coming into the United States illegally.

‘I felt like I had been kicked in the gut when I found out what was happening,’ she said in an emotional interview with ABC News on Sunday. ‘I don’t believe in families ripped apart; I just don’t.

The 30-year old added, ‘I don’t think it’s right and without a plan to reunite them – that’s completely unimaginable, and unthinkable and it’s wrong.’

She also signed-on to #BreakBreadNotFamilies, which is a 24-hour hunger strike and prayer chain that will last 24 days in honor of the 2,4000 children separated from their parents.

“It’s a small price to pay considering what families are going through,” she told People.  

Evan documented some of her journey on Instagram.

One picture shows her playing with a young boy at a shelter in McAllen, Texas with the caption: ‘Just hung out with some of the families at one of the shelters people are sent to while they are being processed or awaiting deportation. Played with the kids for hours. They were so sweet, insanely smart, and creative. They have obviously been thru a lot and need supplies and medicine.’ #EvanInTX.

In another photo she is seen carrying supplies inside a local store with a caption meant to inspire her 450,000 social media followers.

‘Certain organizations, like The Red Cross, have not been “given permission” to donate supplies. But you can.’ #EvanInTX.

Evan donated things like clothes, shoes, toothbrushes, shampoo, body soap, and diapers but she said the thing that seemed to mattered the most was showing these people that they were valued.

Amid the massive backlash to the separation policy, President Trump signed an executive order reversing his policy on Wednesday.

As of Saturday, the Department of Homeland Security maintain the U.S. government had reunited 522 migrant children who were separated from adults.
