‘Rise Of Skywalker’ Second Unit Director Victoria Mahoney To Helm Lionsgate Action Drama ‘Shadow Force’

Victoria Mahoney, who is the first woman ever to direct a Star War movie, will direct the Kerry Washington-Sterling K. Brown action drama Shadow Force for Lionsgate. Mahoney served as the second unit director on Disney’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. 

Shadow Force, written by Leon Chills and Joe Carnahan, follows an estranged husband and wife with a bounty on their heads who must go on the run with their son to avoid their former employer – a unit of shadow ops that has been sent to kill them.

Shadow Force is being produced by Stephen “Dr.” Love, who is producing through his Made with Love Media company, along with Washington, who is producing through her production company Simpson Street; Brown, who is producing through his Indian Meadows Productions; and Simpson Street’s Pilar Savone. The film is executive produced by Indian Meadows’ Danielle Reardon, Jennifer Wiley-Stockton, and by Katherine Atkinson.

“Victoria is one of the most impressive and in-demand directors working today,” said Lionsgate Motion Picture Group President of Production Erin Westerman. “Like with all of her work, she will bring iconic action, warmth, style, and gravitas to Shadow Force. We know she, along with Kerry and Sterling and the talented production team will elevate this exciting production.”

“We are absolutely thrilled to be working with Victoria Mahoney,” said Washington and Brown in a joint statement. “Her vision is inspiring. Her enthusiasm is infectious. Her artistry and insight have already deepened this electrifying project.”

Mahoney has steadily been a director in demand, helming episodes of Lovecraft Country, Grey’s Anatomy, Power, American Crime, Claws, Queen Sugar, and I Am the Night, among others. During her career, she has been hired by JJ Abrams, Ava DuVernay, Patti Jenkins, John Ridley, and Debbie Allen.

Mahoney directed her first feature Yelling to the Sky in 2011, which made its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival where it was nominated for a Golden Bear. A New York City native, Mahoney developed Yelling to the Sky through the Directors and Screenwriters Sundance Institute Labs and was named an Auerbach Fellow, Annenberg Fellow, Cinereach Fellow, Maryland Fellow, Tribeca Fellow, and IFP Narrative Lab Fellow.

She is represented by CAA and Del Shaw Moonves Tanaka Finkelstein & Lezcano. Shadow Force is being overseen at Lionsgate by Aaron Janus, and Aaron Edmonds. Quinn Curry is overseeing the production for Made With Love Media. Lionsgate’s Robert Melnik negotiated the deal on behalf of the studio.

This Is Us season 5 release date: How many episodes are in This Is Us series 5?

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

This Is Us season five will be arriving on NBC very soon and viewers in the US have been waiting a long time for the next batch of episodes. The family drama series has been gripping fans in the US since it made its debut in 2016, and the series follows the families of two parents. Fans are keen to find out how many episodes are in season five, and Express.co.uk has everything you need to know.

How many episodes are in This Is Us series 5?

This Is Us has been such a success that in May 2019, NBC decided to renew the series for a further three seasons, meaning there is plenty more drama to come.

The fifth season lands on October 27 and the series will continue to follow the lives of Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca Pearson (Mandy Moore).

The episodes follow the children of Jack and Rebecca – Kevin (played by Justin Hartley), Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Randall (Sterling K Brown) – who was adopted by the family.

The start of season five will see the siblings celebrating their 40th birthdays, and the first two episodes have been aptly named Forty: Part One and Forty: Part Two.

Fans will be pleased to hear season five will follow suit when it comes to the number of episodes, as there will once again be 18 parts to the new season.

Usually the episodes are all given unique titles, however the names for the new episodes are yet to be revealed by NBC.

Fans were thrilled when they found out the series was being renewed, and the NBC co-chairman, Paul Telegdy, suggested there was no particular end in sight for the show.

Viewers fell in love with the show’s concept as it follows different characters over a number of different time frames.

The series has received countless Emmy nominations and Screen Actors Guild Awards since it started airing. Creator Dan Fogelman Tweeted following the news of the season renewal, saying: “Three years ago, we were live-tweeting the premiere of our TV show, hoping someone, anyone might watch…Today our friends at @nbc picked up #ThisIsUs for THREE more seasons, bringing us to six.”

He went on to add how the show has received a huge amount of support, adding: “It’s also due to our impassioned, dedicated fans. Some days you guys hate Miguel, some days you guys love Miguel, but we ALWAYS love you.” Miguel Rivas (Jon Huertas) is Rebecca’s second husband in the series.

Each episode usually takes place in the present day, and it includes flashbacks so fans can delve into each character’s past.

Kevin and Kate were two of three babies born to Rebecca and Jack – their third triplet, Kyle, was stillborn and so the family chose to adopt a third child – Randall.

A sneak peek from season five has been uploaded on Twitter and it shows Kevin visiting his sister Kate, and he is wearing a facemask to depict life during the coronavirus lockdown.

Kevin reveals to Kate that his partner Madison (Caitlin Thompson), is expecting twins, and Kate ‘air hugs’ the pair, congratulating them.

Fans are excited to see what happens next, with one saying on Twitter: “Madison and Kevin are adorable! Can’t wait to watch the new episodes! Randall and Kevin are making me nervous!”

Following the release of some first-look images, another fan said: “I know I am one of the few, but I like Madison and Kevin together! Look how sweet those pics are.”

Fans in the US have previously been able to watch the series on Hulu, however this year the episodes will air on the NBC service Peacock.

The new episodes will air a week after their initial release on NBC, so if fans wish to watch the series online, they will be a week behind.

Fans in the UK will also be able to watch the latest episodes on Amazon Prime Video, and the upcoming episodes are said to focus on the coronavirus outbreak, and the poignant Black Lives Matter protests.

Actor Hartley has been teasing parts of the latest season on his Instagram account, saying: “The best plans you’ll have all year kick off 10/27!.”

Actress Metz spoke to Entertainment Tonight Canada about how season five was created in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak.

She said: “We as a cast were like ‘Oh my gosh, what if the show doesn’t come back this year? We don’t want to miss a whole season.’

“I have to say I have never felt more safe on set because of the protocols. There has been such a process and so much energy and time and money into making sure we are safe.

“We are absolutely full-on addressing what is going on in the country and in the world right now. The pandemic, of course, and then all of the racial injustice and social unrest that’s going on.

“I’m really grateful that we are because I think it’s going to enlighten a lot of people and create a conversation.”

Yep, That's Nicole Kidman Singing Undoing's 'Dream' Theme — Watch

Holy Moulin Rouge flashback!

Oscar winner Nicole Kidman‘s considerable, rarely-heard pipes are being put to use in HBO’s six-episode limited series The Undoing, which premiered Sunday (read recap).

The sometimes-chanteuse recorded a cover of “Dream a Little Dream of Me” for the thriller’s opening title sequence, which features a young version of Kidman’s Undoing character Grace playing with bubbles and picking flowers and just generally being all innocent and childlike (watch the opening above).

The 1931 standard was first recorded by Ozzie Nelson, but became popularized by The Mamas & The Papas in 1968 (with Cass Elliot on lead vocals).

Mainstream audiences were first treated to Kidman’s vocal chops in Baz Luhrmann’s 2001 jukebox musical Moulin Rouge. Since then she has only occasionally put her warbler hat on, most notably in the 2009 musical Nine and in Netflix’s upcoming film version of the Broadway musical The Prom (watch teaser).

Based on the Jean Hanff Korelitz novel You Should Have Known and adapted for TV by Kidman’s Big Little Lies scribe David E. Kelley, The Undoing follows a well-to-do Manhattan couple (Kidman and Hugh Grant) whose existence is turned upside down when something tragic and super-spoilery happens. Edgar Ramirez (The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story), Donald Sutherland (Trust) and Lily Rabe (American Horror Story) round out the cast.

Chloë Sevigny Posed Nude While 9 Months Pregnant for Playgirl's New Issue

Chloë Sevigny bared all earlier this year — while nine months pregnant, no less.

On Monday, Playgirl unveiled its relaunched print edition, with the Oscar-nominated actress, 45, and her baby bump gracing the magazine's cover. Sevigny shot the stunning 21-photo spread back in March with photographer Mario Sorrenti, just weeks before she welcomed son Vanja on May 2 with boyfriend Sinisa Mackovic.

In the cover story, with an interview conducted later in May after becoming a newly minted mother, Sevigny opens up about her path to motherhood.

"It was just something that was supposed to happen, and in my early 40s, when it hadn't, I was like, 'I have to sort of actively try and make this happen' … and then I struggled for a while," said the We Are Who We Are star.

Added Sevigny of how she finally became pregnant: "We had a night out dancing and drinking and went home … and then it just happened, and it stuck, which I had had trouble with in the past. And I was like, 'Wow, this one — he/she — wants to be here.' "

Elsewhere in the story, Sevigny explained how she'll manage a work-life balance as a parent, saying, "I'm going to have to work, but I think I'll just have to pick and choose what that is, and hopefully it won't be that far from home."

Chloë Sevigny Says She 'Always Secretly Desired a Girl' Before Welcoming Son Vanja

News of Sevigny’s pregnancy first broke this past January, when her rep confirmed to PEOPLE that the actress was expecting her first child with Mackovic. The couple was spotted on a stroll in New York City, smiling with one another as Mackovic embraced her growing baby bump before they shared a kiss.

Mackovic, who is the director of Karma Art Gallery in New York City, has been in a relationship with Sevigny for more than a year.

In April, the American Horror Story alum said that she and Mackovic still hadn't decided on a name for their little one. "Our baby's due in eight days and we don't have a name yet," Sevigny said during a Q&A with Homme Girls. She also joked that her "idea of fun" at the moment would be "pushing this bebe out."

Chloë Sevigny Reveals Her Son's Name as She Shares First Photo of the Baby Boy

In an interview for WSJ. Magazine's September issue, Sevigny shared how she's been adapting to parenthood, explaining how her pre-baby organization has gone out the window since bringing home her new addition.

"I'm usually really good at time management. I'm actually really proud of how I get everything done in a day. I keep lists, and I'm very organized," said Sevigny at the time. "Since I've had the baby, I'm just like, I don't know how anybody gets anything done. I have to cook for everyone, then clean, then feed him, then clean him."

"We're lucky we have my mother coming and helping us a few times a week for a few hours," she added. "We've been lucky that Sinisa's been home from work, and he helps all the time. He's on Zoom calls 24 hours a day, half of them holding the baby."

2 Notre Dame Students Killed, 1 Injured, After Being Hit by Car Near Campus: 'So Shattering'

Two University of Notre Dame students were killed over the weekend after being struck by a vehicle just a mile away from their Indiana campus, according to officials.

In a press release, the university confirmed the fatal incident and identified the victims as Valeria Espinel and Olivia Lara Rojas, who were both 19-year-old first-year students.

A third student, who was a sophomore — identified by the St. Joseph County Prosecutor's Office (SJCPO) as 19-year-old Eduardo Jose Elias Calderon — was also struck by the vehicle but is currently hospitalized, according to the university.

"On behalf of the entire Notre Dame community, I express our deepest condolences and pray that our students’ families and friends may find God’s grace and solace after so shattering a loss," University of Notre Dame President Rev. John I. Jenkins said in a statement. "We also pray for a full recovery of our student who remains hospitalized as a result of the accident."

According to a press release from the SJCPO, the incident unfolded on Saturday morning just after 4 a.m. local time. Authorities said a Toyota Sienna minivan was traveling southbound on Ironwood Road when it struck three individuals.

According to The South Bend Tribune, the road that the individuals were walking on does not have sidewalks and is near an apartment complex where many Notre Dame upperclassmen and graduate students live.

After hitting the trio, the minivan made a "sharp left," collided with a house on the 54000 block of Ironwood Road and came to a stop against the front of the residence, the SJCPO's press release stated.

The owner of the house told The Tribune that he was sleeping at the time of the crash but felt the car come through his bedroom wall.

"I heard the boom, felt the house shake and heard stuff fall off the wall," said the man, who did not want to disclose his identity, adding that he called 911 and then went outside to see what had occurred.

Meanwhile, as the victims were lying in the roadway, SJCPO authorities said a second vehicle, a Chevrolet Impala, was traveling southbound on Ironwood Road and ended up striking Espinel again.

Both female victims — Rojas of Bolivia and Espinel of Ecuador — were pronounced dead at the scene, while Calderon of the Dominican Republic was transported to Memorial Hospital in South Bend, where he remains in critical condition, according to police.

As for the drivers, the SJCPO said the Sienna was being operated by Justin Cavallo of South Bend. Cavallo, 25, suffered minor injuries but remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators.

He also had a passenger inside the vehicle, whom police identified as Rafik Tannir of South Bend. Tannir, 24, was uninjured in the incident.

The driver of the Impala, Darlene Holden of South Bend, also did not suffer any injuries. Holden, 54, also remained at the scene of the accident, according to police.

"The St. Joseph County Fatal Crash Team (FACT) was activated, per protocol, to handle the investigation," the SJCPO wrote. "This remains an active and ongoing investigation, and toxicology results are pending. We will release further information to the public as we are able to do so."

Added the St. Joseph's County Police Department in a Facebook post: "Sheriff and the entire County Police Department send their condolences to the entire University of Notre Dame family and the families of the students involved in this tragedy. We also thank and pray for our SJCPD officers and all the other first responders whom made the scene to help this morning."

In the wake of the tragedy, the University of Notre Dame announced they would be offering counseling and campus ministry support to students, as well as a campus-wide prayer service on Saturday evening.

"Please wear a mask and practice physical distancing as we come together in prayer. A procession to the Grotto will follow the prayer service," the university wrote in an Instagram post. "We also encourage students to utilize the @uccnd and @ndministry as resources during this very difficult time."

‘Batwoman’ Unveils First Look at Javicia Leslie in the New Batsuit

The CW has released two first-look images for the “Batwoman” suit redesign based around actress Javicia Leslie’s character, Ryan Wilder.

The outfit will be featured starting in Season 2, episode 3, and is the first original design for the new Batwoman, as Leslie takes over the mantle from Ruby Rose, who led the show during its first season. Leslie is the first Black woman to portray a live-action version of the superhero on TV or film.

“I love the fact that Ryan is becoming her own Batwoman — it’s her style, her swag, and her moment,” Leslie said in a statement. “I felt it was important that viewers could tell by the silhouette that Batwoman was a Black girl. With the form-fitting suit and beautiful Afro, we definitely nailed it!”

The new outfit was conceptualized by Maya Mani and created by Ocean Drive Leather, while Janice Workman crafted the wig and Cory Roberts styled the makeup. Mani said the design is meant to highlight Leslie’s physical athleticism and offer a fresh take for the new character.

The black and red outfit features various new differences, but most notably, a new wig. Gone is the straight red hair, as the new design swaps in curly hair with red streaks. Also new to the character are the red gauntlets and a new belt with the bat logo. The laser-etched suit has other differences as well, visible in the first looks offered by the CW.

The suit embodies Ryan’s shift from using the Batwoman persona for personal gain to discovering the importance of the superhero as a symbol to Gotham City, said executive producer Caroline Dries in a press release. As she’s not the same person as Kate Kane (Rose), the woman who donned the suit before her, changes must be made to reflect her own style.

“As Ryan embraces everything that makes her special, she adjusts the suit to fit her physically and figuratively,” said Dries. “This meant creating a new body design and new cowl that was undeniably a statement that screamed ‘powerful.’”

Take a look at the images of Leslie as Batwoman below.

Alisson reveals God and wanting to prove Liverpool medical staff wrong helped him come back from injury early

ALISSON has revealed his mission to prove Liverpool’s medical staff wrong after being told he could be sidelined for six weeks.

The Brazilian keeper also admitted it was tough missing Liverpool’s 7-2 thrashing against Aston Villa after suffering a shoulder injury ahead of the clash.

Alisson gave Liverpool a boost when returning for Saturday’s 2-1 win over Sheffield United, just three weeks after picking up the problem.

Preparing for the home Champions League clash with FC Midtjylland, he said: “It is good to be back. I am really happy.

"As soon as the doctor said four to six weeks, I said ‘no doc, we go to two or three weeks maximum.’ Then I went for it.

“I pray a lot. I really do. Also, I had a lot of treatment. Everyday I was at the club for five or six hours and I was working with the fitness department.

“After two weeks, I was brought together with the goalie coach, doing catching but not diving. After two-and-half weeks, I started to dive.

"Three days later, I started with hard goal kicks and full diving and on Friday, I gave the boss the green light that I could play.

“I am glad it was only three weeks. Not being involved in every game, like the Atletico match last season or the Villa game, is always hard.

"As a player, you want to be out there helping the team”

Alisson admitted it will be difficult playing without defender Virgil van Dijk who has a long-term ACL injury.

Fabinho will once again deputise against the Danes.

The Anfield number one said: “Fabinho is a fantastic player but we will miss Virgil a lot. We cannot deny that.”

Apart from van Dijk, Liverpool will once again be without the injured Joel Matip, Naby Keita, Thiago Alcantara and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

As someone who’s interested in true crime, I spend a lot of time listening to podcasts. But as any true-crime fan knows, not all podcasts are created equal in terms of quality.

With these criteria in mind, here are 10 underrated podcasts to listen to after you’ve breezed through the big ones like Serial, Crime Junkie, or My Favorite Murder.
