          Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley in Talks to Direct ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Movie

          Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley in Talks to Direct ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Movie
          Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley are in negotiations to direct the “Dungeons & Dragons” movie for Paramount Pictures.

          They’re replacing Chris McKay, who parted ways with the project to focus on the Skydance pic “Ghost Draft” starring Chris Pratt. The timing works out for the directing duo, as Daley and Goldstein recently left the Flash movie over creative differences, and Paramount moved quickly to jump at the chance to work with them.

          Michael Gillio will be penning the script. Hasbro’s Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis are producing.

          The film will be one of the first projects to go into production for the newly created AllSpark Pictures. Launched last October by Hasbro, the production company aims to transform itself into an industry player to rival Marvel Studios.

          In addition to the Dungeons & Dragons tabletop roleplaying game, Hasbro’s lines of toys and games include Mr. Potato Head,

          FX’s ‘A Teacher’ Limited Series Gets Green Light; Nick Robinson Joins Kate Mara As Co-Lead
          FX has given a formal green light to A Teacher, a 10-episode limited series based on Hannah Fidell’s buzzy 2013 Sundance feature, starring and executive produced by Kate Mara. Additionally, Nick Robinson has been cast as a co-lead opposite Mara in the series, which has been in development at FX since last year. FX Productions is the studio.

          Fidell, who wrote, directed and produced the 2013 film, will pen the adaptation, direct and executive produce the limited series.

          A Teacher explores the story behind the mugshot of a female high school teacher caught in an affair with her male student, revealing the complexities and consequences of these illegal relationships.

          Mara and Robinson star respectively as Claire, a popular young teacher at a suburban Texas high school, and Eric, an all-American high school senior.

          Fidell executive produces with Michael Costigan and Jason Bateman of Aggregate Films, Danny Brocklehurst and Mara.

          “Hannah Fidell is an exceptional filmmaker we have long admired for her intuitive ability to bring complex stories to life with depth and grace,” said Gina Balian, President, Original Programming, FX Entertainment. “We are thrilled to partner with Hannah, Kate Mara, Michael Costigan, Jason Bateman and Danny Brocklehurst to adapt A Teacher into a limited series for FX, with Kate leading an extraordinary cast along with Nick Robinson.”

          “Working with FX – truly the home of all my favorite shows – on A Teacher is a dream come true,” said Fidell. “I couldn’t ask for a more perfect partner who, from day one, has understood and embraced the inherent complexities and nuance required for such subject matter.”

          Robinson, who starred in features Love, Simon and Everything, Everything, was a series regular on the ABC Family series Melissa and Joey. Other credits include Native Son, Jurassic World, and Boardwalk Empire, among others. He’s next set to make his Broadway debut in the hit Aaron Sorkin adaptation of Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird, replacing the outgoing Will Pullen as Jem Finch in November.

          Mara is repped by Wme, Mosaic, Viewpoint, Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern. Robinson is repped by UTA, Management 360, Savage Agency and Fred Toczek.

          Winners and Losers on Night 1 of the Second Democratic Debates

          Ten Democratic presidential contenders took the stage at the Fox Theater in downtown Detroit for the first night of the second round of the 2020 primary debates — and churned out a memorable, marathon debate.

          The contest had offered the prospect of a faceoff between progressive champions Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. But instead of fighting, the two candidates with transformative plans for America stuck together, defending their bold agendas against the slings and arrows of can’t-do moderates, particularly former congressman John Delaney and ex-Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper.

          Democratic Debates: Moderates Swing at Warren, Sanders; Williamson Sets Internet Ablaze

          Anyone tuning into the Democratic primary debates on CNN expecting to see Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders take swings at each other was likely disappointed, but several less well-known candidates — Marianne Williamson in particular — garnered a perhaps unexpected amount of attention on the stage of 10 in Detroit on Tuesday night.

          Warren, Sanders and Pete Buttigieg scored the most talking time, according to NPR’s calculation, in a sprawling, more-than-two-and-a-half-hour debate that covered health care, gun violence, immigration, trade, education and racism.

          The two leading progressive candidates took a strong position advocating for Medicare-for-All. Sanders, calling the nation’s current health care system “dysfunctional,

          ‘Anything Less Than $100 Billion Is an Insult': Marianne Williamson on Reparations at #DemDebate (Video)

          • The Wrap
          At the Democratic primary debate on Tuesday, Marianne Williamson had a blunt response when asked to explain the $500 million she argues should be paid as reparations to the descendants of slaves: “Anything less than $100 billion is an insult.”

          Asked by moderator Don Lemon why she says $500 billion was an appropriate amount, Williamson said “It’s $200 to $500 billion dollars payment of a debt that is owed. That is what reparations is.”

          “It is time for us to simply realize that … when it comes to the economic gap between blacks and whites in America, it does come from a great injustice that has never been dealt with,” she continued. Then, referencing “40 acres and a mule,” Williamson added, “If you did the math today, it would be trillions of dollars, and I believe that anything less than $100 billion is an insult.” Watch the clip above.

          CNN’s Democratic Debate Was a Frantic Lightning Round, But Still an Improvement (Column)

          Tuning into the second round of Democrat debates on CNN, you’d be forgiven for briefly mistaking it for a boxing match. Bombastic highlight reels trumpeting a showdown between “The Progressives” (Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren), assorted moderates (chiefly Pete Buttigieg and Beto O’Rourke) and gauzy meme generator Marianne Williamson opened the night. Red, white and blue flashed by as a voiceover befitting a summer disaster movie blockbuster intoned that tonight, 10 candidates would be battling it out “for the heart of the party.” If the candidates walked onstage and immediately started brawling, I wouldn’t have blinked twice.
