Amazon Studios has nabbed a feature pitch with “Wonder Woman” star Chris Pine attached to play John Dean, a pivotal figure in the Watergate scandal.

The film will follow the life and political saga of Dean, who served as White House counsel for President Richard Nixon from July 1970 through April 1973. Amazon bought the development project from producers Bob Cooper — a veteran Hollywood player — under his banner Landscape Entertainment and prolific screenwriter Billy Ray (“Gemini Man,” “Overlord” and the English-language adaptation of “The Secret in Their Eyes”) of Home Run Productions.

Dean himself will serve as executive producer on the project with his manager Rick Berg. Up-and-coming screenwriter Evan Parter, whose scripts have appeared more than once on the annual Black List, is penning the project.

Billed by the press as a “connoisseur of cover-ups,” Dean became a crucial Nixon whistle-blower by offering testimony that implicated the president in the historic cover-up. In exchange, he served four months of house arrest and plead guilty to obstruction of justice. He’s since written numerous books and serves as a political commentator. In recent years, he’s been highly critical of the Republican party and President Donald Trump. (Source)

Chris Pine is attached to play iconic CBS newsman Walter Cronkite in Newsflash. This is the Ben Jacoby-scripted drama that takes place on November 22, 1963, the day President John F Kennedy was assassinated in Texas. Similar to the cultural atom-splitting moments captured in films like The Social Network, Newsflash covers the day that television network news came of age, and that Cronkite became the most trusted TV newsman voice of America. Even if he wasn’t first to announce the president had died (NBC did that).

The drama also focuses on Don Hewitt, who was Cronkite’s producer and helped navigate the chaos in an unimaginably tragic day in America. The drama is being mobilized for a January start Greg Silverman’s Stampede, with Silverman producing with Adam Kolbrenner. Jacoby wrote a much admired script called The Ravine, a Chinatown-like look at how landowners were pushed out of Chavez Ravine to make room for the Dodgers baseball team that was moving out of Brooklyn.

The news has been reporting that a third Princess Diaries movie might come in our way, and while we’re SO excited for it, let’s put together everything we know so far about the rumoured sequel.

There’s already a scipt
Author of The Princess Diaries book series, Meg Cabot, told Entertainment Weekly that a script exists. She also said that if the film gets made, it’ll happen “kind of as a tribute” to Garry Marshall, director of the first two movies, who sadly passed away in 2016. But Cabot refused to reveal any further details, apart from saying that the film would likely deviate from the book series. She said, “I think of them as two different universes.”

Garry Marshall was planning the third instalment before he died
Last year, before his passing, Garry Marshall talked to People magazine about this time placing Princess Mia Thermopolis in Manhatthan. “I was with Anne Hathaway a couple weeks ago, it looks like we want to do Princess Diaries 3 in Manhattan. Anne is very pregnant, so we have to wait until she has the baby and then I think we’re going to do it.” Maybe they still follow his idea, as part of the tribute.

Anne Hathaway has an idea for the sequel
Julie Andrews, who plays Queen Clarisse Renaldi in the movies, told Buzzfeed in February 2017, “Annie [Hathaway] had an idea that she wanted to pursue about it, and I’m all for it, so if she’d like to… I would very willingly and happily do it.”

Chris Pine is open to it.
The most important thing of all this discussion is: will Nicholas Devereaux back on this 3rd movie? If Chris Pine has a voice on it, the answer is yes. In January 2016, during a fan Q&A for Entertainment Weekly, Pine was asked “Don’t you pray every night for a Princess Diaries 3?” to which he replied, “Have you been reading my diary?”

Mandy Moore would consider a cameo
In July 2017, Moore told ELLE.com, “If I’m going to be involved, I would be down for a cameo—maybe she could make amends with Mia and apologise for being a bully when she was younger. She was insecure, going through a difficult time in her life and [has now] reflected on why that wasn’t okay.”

Princess Mia’s best friend Lilly Moscovitz would come back
In July 2016, Heather Matarazzo, who played Princess Mia’s best friend Lilly Moscovitz, told Cosmopolitan that she would definitely return for another sequel. She said, “If Annie and Julie are down, of course.”

We’re ready!

Deadline can now confirm the cast for this long gestating, highly anticipated action thriller that will be the first of an anticipated franchise trilogy. It resurrects the popular Tom Clancy character of CIA analyst Jack Ryan last seen on film in 2002 and now played by Chris Pine in the role already made famous by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, and Ben Affleck. After various starts and stops, bad luck and good fortune, Deadline also has learned that Jack Ryan finally has come together for a release in the 4th quarter of 2013.

Paramount chose to wait for Pine to complete the second installment of Star Trek in this contemporized original prequel story that picks up Ryan before he joined the CIA. (Paramount long ago locked in Pine after he played Captain Kirk.) His love interest and the female lead is Keira Knightley. Paramount was intensely searching because it’s a high profile role — an older version of the character was played by Anne Archer in the Harrison Ford films — and involves options that would potentially put the actress in three pictures.

The Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle announced its nominations for the 2010 season on Tuesday. The Antaeus Company’s production of Shakespeare’s “King Lear” topped the list with five nominations, while Rogue Machine’s “Four Places,” Actors Co-op’s “Wit,” The Theatre @ Boston Court’s “The Twentieth-Century Way” and The Fountain Theatre’s “Opus” and “The Ballad of Emmett Till” each scored four.

As usual, Hollywood celebrities factored in to the choices: Ed Harris for Neil LaBute’s “Wrecks” at the Geffen Playhouse, Chris Pine in Martin McDonagh’s “The Lieutenant of Inishmore” at the Mark Taper Forum and “24” star Gregory Itzin for the Antaeus Company’s “King Lear” at Deaf West Theatre in North Hollywood. Tony Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda picked up a nomination — and a win — for his score to “In The Heights” at the Pantages Theatre. (He was the only nominee in the category.)

The awards ceremony is scheduled to take place March 14 at the Colony Theatre in Burbank, where it was held last year. Founded in 1969, the organization’s voting members include theater reviewers from around Southern California, including two regular contributors to the Los Angeles Times — F. Kathleen Foley and David C. Nichols.
