Jordan Peele's "Hunters" Trailer Starring Al Pacino & Logan Lerman

Honey Boy Starring Shia LaBeouf In Theaters November 8th

Amazon Studios will release Alma Har’el’s critically acclaimed Honey Boy in select theaters on November 8, 2019 and will expand in the following weeks. Shia LaBeouf wrote and stars alongside A Quiet Place’s Noah Jupe and Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Lucas Hedges. Har’el received the U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Vision and Craft at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.

From a screenplay by LaBeouf, based on his own experiences, award-winning filmmaker Alma Har'el brings to life a young actor's stormy childhood and early adult years as he struggles to reconcile with his father through cinema and dreams. Fictionalizing his childhood’s ascent to stardom, and subsequent adult crash-landing into rehab and recovery, Har'el casts Noah Jupe and Lucas Hedges as Otis Lort, navigating different stages in a frenetic career. LaBeouf takes on the daring and therapeutic challenge of playing a version of his own father, an ex-rodeo clown and a felon. Artist and musician FKA twigs makes her feature-film debut, playing neighbor and kindred spirit to the younger Otis in their garden-court motel home. Har'el's feature narrative debut is a one-of-a-kind collaboration between filmmaker and subject, exploring art as therapy and imagination as hope.

The film is produced by Har’el, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Daniela Taplin Lundberg, Anita Gou and Christopher Leggett. Executive Producers are Fred Berger, Rafael Marmor, Daniel Crown and Bill Benenson. Honey Boy is produced by Automatik and Delirio, in association with Stay Gold Features, Kindred Spirit and Red Crown Productions.

Amazon Studios will release Ritesh Batra’s Photograph on May 17, Nisha Ganatra’s Late Night nationwide in theaters on June 7, Nanfu Wang and Jialing Zhang’s One Child Nation on August 9, and Paul Downs Colaizzo’s Brittany Runs a Marathon on August 23. Additional titles this year include Scott Z. Burns’ The Report starring Adam Driver, Annette Bening and Jon Hamm, Tom Harper’s The Aeronauts starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones, Bert & Bertie’s Troop Zero starring Viola Davis, Allison Janney and Mckenna Grace, and Benedict Andrews’ Against All Enemies starring Kristen Stewart, Jack O’Connell and Anthony Mackie.

Netflix Nabs Beverly Hills Cop Sequel

The streamer nabbed the sequel rights from Viacom's Paramount Pictures via a one-time licensing deal, with Bruckheimer set to produce.

Netflix has picked up the rights to make a sequel to Beverly Hills Cop, with Eddie Murphy set to star and Jerry Bruckheimer set to produce, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The project comes after a one-time licensing deal between Netflix and Paramount to produce the latest reboot of the Beverly Hills Cop franchise. Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are on board to direct the long awaited fourth installment of the series.

As competitors like Disney and Warner Bros. withhold their movies from Netflix to feed their own streaming services, Paramount has become a ready supplier, or "arms dealer" of sorts, of content and licensing rights for the streaming giant.

Paramount previously took a planned Beverly Hills Cop 4 sequel off the beat. The studio pulled the planned reboot of the popular cop comedy from its scheduled March 25, 2016 release…
