“Never, Ever, Just Mary” Clip From ‘Saving Mr. Banks’ – Starring Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson & Colin Farrell
Walt Disney Pictures has debuted this new clip from ‘Saving Mr. Banks,’ the account of Walt Disney’s twenty-year pursuit of the film rights to P.L. Travers’ popular novel, ‘Mary Poppins’, and the testy partnership the filmmaker develops with the author during the project’s pre-production in 1961. Two-time Academy Award-winner Tom Hanks plays Disney (the first time the entrepreneur has ever been depicted in a dramatic film) alongside fellow double Oscar-winner Emma Thompson in the role of Travers.
Before actually signing away the book’s rights, P.L. Travers’ demands for contractual script and character control circumvent not only Walt Disney’s vision for the film adaptation, but also those of the creative team of screenwriter Don DaGradi and sibling composers Richard and Robert Sherman, whose original score and song (Chim-Chim-Cher-ee) would go on to win Oscars at the 1965 ceremonies – the film won five awards of its thirteen nominations.

According to The Wrap, ’Hugo’ and ‘Ender’s Game’ star Asa Butterfield is in talks to star opposite Clive Owen and Jacki Weaver in the indie comedy ‘King of the Kastle.’ Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka co-wrote and will direct the movie, which stars Owen as a philanderer who is blackmailed by a teenager. Butterfield is in line to play Owen’s teenage foil, while Weaver will co-star in an unspecified role. Gatewood and Tanaka will make their feature directorial debuts with ‘King of the Kastle.’ The duo previously wrote the Jonah Hill comedy ‘The Sitter’ and the upcoming Jackie Chan movie ‘Skiptrace,’ as well as Paramount’s planned ‘Baywatch’ movie.
Deadline are reporting that Shawn Levy has been tapped to develop and direct ‘City That Sailed,’ a 20th Century Fox adventure film that now officially has Will Smith aboard to star. Audrey Wells is writing the script for the tentpole and Smith and James Lassiter’s Overbrook Entertainment will produce. The story centers on a father and daughter on the island of Manhattan as it breaks loose and sails across the Atlantic Ocean.
Shawn Levy begins production early next year on the third installment of the lucrative ‘Night At The Museum’ franchise that is set for a Christmas 2014 release. Will Smith’s name had been attached to ‘City That Sailed’ for some time among many starring vehicles — as far back as 2010, after finishing up shooting ‘Men In Black 3.’ This makes him officially aboard. Levy recently wrapped ‘This Is Where I Leave You’ for Warner Bros, directed Fox’s comedy ‘The Internship’ that came out this summer, and produced ‘The Spectacular Now.’ His director credits also include ‘Date Night’ and ‘Real Steel.’
