Meryl Streep, George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio File Objections In Weinstein Co. Bankruptcy
A Who’s Who list of Hollywood celebrities have filed objections to the Weinstein Co. sale, saying they’re owed money by the bankrupt studio — though the murky accounting makes it difficult to know exactly how much without conducting an audit.

Meryl Streep, George Clooney, Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bill Murray and Quentin Tarantino were among those filing documents raising concerns about outstanding payments ahead of the court-supervised auction of the studio.

Tarantino has had a long collaboration with The Weinstein Co. and its disgraced co-founder, Harvey Weinstein. He made four films for the studio — Grindhouse/Death Proof, Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight.

The writer-director estimates he’s still owed nearly $4.6 million for these films: $300,000 for Grindhouse, $575,000 for Inglourious Basterds, some $1.3 million for Django and $2.5 million for The Hateful Eight.

Tarantino is asking the court to forestall the sale until The Weinstein Co. lives up to its

Apple Tree Yard review – a thriller of sex, death and broom cupboards

Louise Doughty’s psychological thriller revolves around a passion that leads to a trial for murder. Plus: the timely return of Homeland

Emily Watson’s character, Yvonne Carmichael, looks out of the window as the vehicle in which she is travelling crosses a bridge over the Thames in London. She reflects on human nature, on the choices we make, how fear turns us into animals. The Thames can make you reflect, although Yvonne has more reason to do so than most. She is not on a bus, but in a prisoner transport van, possibly operated by G4S. She is cuffed and on the way to court, to be tried for murder. So begins this four-part adaptation of novelist (and Christmas University Challenge finalist) Louise Doughty’s psychological thriller Apple Tree Yard (BBC1, Sunday).

How did it come to this? Nine months earlier Yvonne, a successful genetic scientist with a comfortable home life,

Boris Becker's early life and career is to be turned into a TV movie.

The tennis icon has sold the rights to his life story, with the proposed film following Becker from childhood to his first Wimbledon title in 1985.

"There's a right time for everything in life," said Becker.

The picture will be produced by German company Pantaleon Entertainment, which described it as a "big-budget international tentpole TV event".
