In choosing its newest members, the film academy went for younger and more diverse.

Kevin Hart, Common, Emma Stone, Dev Patel and “Whiplash” writer-director Damien Chazelle were among the 322 new academy members announced Friday.

“It’s really gratifying to see the big increases in genre, people of colour, age and national origin,” academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs said in an interview.

Other new inductees include Benedict Cumberbatch, David Oyelowo, Sergio Mendes, Elizabeth Banks, John Legend, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Tom Hardy and “Dope” director Rick Famuyiwa.

Membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is by invitation only. Oscar nominees are automatically considered; others must be sponsored by two members of their branch of filmmaking. [more at source]

English actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw (‘Jupiter Ascending,’ ‘Belle,’ ‘Odd Thomas’), Keri Russell (‘The Americans,’ ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’), and Mahershala Ali (‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1,’ ‘The Place Beyond the Pines’) are set to join Matthew McConaughey on the cast of the historical drama ‘Free State of Jones,’ says TheWrap.

Gary Ross is attached to write and direct the drama, which tracks the relationship between Newton Knight (McConaughey) and a slave (Mbatha-Raw), exploring the impact the relationship had Knight’s life and the Civil War-set rebellion he led against the Confederacy.

The site has Russell stepping in to play Knight’s wife, Serena, and Ali playing Moses Washington, an escaped slave who becomes an integral ally of Knight’s rebellion.

Filming is underway in Louisiana with Scott Stuber and Jon Kilik co-producing the drama with Ross. [source]
