15 December 2014 4:26 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: John Stewart Muller’s thriller stars Mira Sorvino [pictured] and Cary Elwes.

Principal photography has commenced in New Orleans on Indiscretion.

John Stewart Muller’s thriller stars Mira Sorvino as Veronica, a psychiatrist who has an affair with Victor, a young sculptor who, when she calls off the affair, refuses to let go. The film also stars Cary Elwes, Christopher Backus and Katherine McNamara.

Written by Muller and Laura Boersma, Indiscretion is produced by Muller and Boersma for Granfalloon, alongside UK-based producers Alexandra Baranska, Kevin Lynch and Tim Rhys.

"As You Wisssssssh" - Missi's Favorites

14 December 2014 6:41 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Favorite Movie

-by Missi Pyle

I have seen The Princess Bride about 200 times. I remember I saw it in the theater as a Double Feature with my friend Christy Brown in the 8th grade. It was playing with Dirty Dancing randomly. And when both movies were over. My friend Christy was totally floored by Dirty Dancing and I thought she was an idiot. I was like - wait the Princess Bride is the Best Movie ever Made. And she was like - no- Dirty Dancing.

The friendship didn't last.

But I just kept watching that movie over and over. I think it's where I developed most of my sense of humor. I have gotten to meet several people from that movie: Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin, Wallace Shawn. I never know what to say. I just can't even handle it.

I know its a lot of people's favorite movie. I don't care. »

7 December 2014 2:00 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Fans of the 1987 film The Princess Bride are excited about star Cary Elwes's book about the making of the film, and it's been making us reminisce about the romantic fantasy classic.

We've rounded up the best ones, which, incidentally, you can still use in your everyday life. »

Atlantis series 2 episode 4 review: The Marriage Of True Minds

6 December 2014 2:19 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It's a darker episode for Atlantis this week, but a well-written and strongly acted one. Here's Dave's review...

This review contains spoilers.

2.4 The Marriage Of True Mind

Let's begin with a short recap of tonight's action. Having failed to secure Atlantis for herself, Pasiphae is worshipping the dark gods and it's revealed, in short order, that Telemon is working with the wicked woman. He’s been promised a place in her court when she comes to power as long as he leads Ariadne to her death.

Convincing Ariadne that he needs his father's blessing for the marriage, Telemon manages to draw the Queen out of the court, much to the concern of Jason. Unable to convince her she's doing the wrong thing, Jason, Pythagoras and Hercules set out to ensure the Queen remains safe and join the retinue that will escort her.

As chaos ensues, Telemon seizes the opportunity to attack, »

"Kundo" Hits The Bullseye

3 December 2014 4:25 AM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Neither Kevin Costner or Cary Elwes make an appearance in this Robin Hood story. From American distributor Well Go USA Entertainment, comes this South Korean import of a hierarchical time of tyranny and the warriors who rose against the wealthy to empower the lower classes. In his fourth outing, director Yoon Jong-bin confidently follows in the footsteps of recent Asian epics, a la Zhang Yimou’s Hero and House of Flying Daggers. With more aesthetic grandeur and matured filmmaking, these imports with their lush visuals and nuanced emotionality make Hollywood’s found footage and handheld films look like juvenile student films. The sensibility is undeniably different, and most people might still want Costner or Crowe to play the Prince of Thieves, but Kundo delivers on an exciting, vibrant ride.

‘Reach Me’ Review: Crowdfunding Gone Horribly Wrong

21 November 2014 8:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The majority of Reach Me writer/director John Herzfeld‘s credits involve television, from TV series like Rob Lowe’s Dr. Vegas to TV films such as 1997’s Emmy-nominated Don King: Only in America. He’s done a bit of film work, notably 15 Minutes and 2 Days in the Valley, both films with enormous, famous casts that follow the lives of many supporting characters – falling in line closely with his latest. More importantly, he’s buds with Sylvester Stallone, who helped him crowdfund this project. In the movie, a mysterious author (Tom Berenger) has written a self-help book, entitled “Reach Me,” that’s found its way into the hands of many unsuspecting Californians, slowly changing their lives and bringing them together in ways they could not have imagined. Its themes are relevant to all: freed inmates (Kyra Sedgwick), rich rappers (Nelly), and the journalists who pursue its elusive author (Kevin Connolly and Sylvester Stallone). The book will cause »

Film Review: ‘Reach Me’

19 November 2014 7:05 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

According to the press notes, “Reach Me” director John Herzfeld first wrote the script for this ensemble dramedy circa 2001, which makes sense given that the film bears more than a faint aroma of Herzfeld’s “2 Days in the Valley” (1997), one of the least offensive of the era’s many “Pulp Fiction” also-rans. Here again Herzfeld gives us a dozen or so SoCal dreamers and schemers — soulless gangsters, aspiring starlets, undercover cops, muckraking bloggers — whose wayward lives crisscross and collide whenever they aren’t being miraculously transformed by the words of a mysterious self-help guru. A misbegotten venture that constantly ups its own ante on histrionic overacting, ludicrous plot twists and insipid empowerment mantras, Herzfeld’s puzzling concoction is likely to make most viewers reach for the remote control when it opens in limited theatrical and VOD release Friday.

Title: Reach Me Director: John Herzfeld Starring: Lauren Cohan, Kyra Sedgwick, Thomas Jane, Kevin Connolly, Tom Sizemore, Nelly, David O’Hara, Terry Crews, Cary Elwes, Tom Berenger, Sylvester Stallone and Danny Aiello Incorporating well-meaning messages about the importance of truly embracing who you are while you strive to reach your full potential is often a riveting and inspirational plot element filmmakers infuse into their movies to make their stories more relatable to their intended audience. But integrating that all-important theme into a large ensemble action film that’s fueled by self-indulgent characters who often find themselves in morally corrupt situations can prove too be challenging.

Sony Loves ‘Elvis & Nixon’ Tender, Leads Strong International Sales – Afm

11 November 2014 1:11 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Elvis & Nixon is hitting the road internationally with Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions, which led strong foreign sales on the hot Afm title by taking multiple territories including Eastern Europe, Latin America, Portugal, Spain and Scandinavia. Alex Walton’s Bloom introduced the true-tale drama starring Oscar nominee Michael Shannon and Oscar winner Kevin Spacey to buyers this week in Santa Monica.

Elvis & Nixon centers on the historic meeting between Elvis Presley (Shannon) and President Richard Nixon (Spacey), when the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll came to the White House the morning of December 21, 1970. The two men, both at the height of their powers and conscious that they could not stay on top forever, shared one famous private moment in the Oval Office during which Elvis asked to be sworn in as a federal agent.

Liza Johnson (Hateship Loveship, Return) is directing from a screenplay by Cary Elwes and Hanala and Joey Sagal. »

Week in Review: Marvel subpoenas Google for ‘Avengers’ trailer leak

8 November 2014 9:11 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Need more proof Marvel controls the world? This week the movie studio even made Google (Google! of all companies) do their bidding when Marvel issued a subpoena to investigate the identity of a Google user named “John Gazelle” who may have been responsible for the low-quality leak of Marvel’s trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron. The subpoena alleges that “John Gazelle” may have uploaded the file to a Google Drive account, and they have now “commanded” Google to “produce at the time, date, and place set forth below the following documents, electronically stored information, or objects, and to permit inspection, copying, testing, or sampling of the material.”

Both Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter have copies of the court document. In it it’s clear that while the first request to produce documents was granted by the courts, Marvel was not granted the right to “permit entry onto the designated premises, »

Exclusive: Cary Elwes Reflects on the Saw Franchise & Discusses His New Memoir on The Princess Bride

6 November 2014 2:54 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“As You Wish.” Anyone who grew up during the 1980’s should immediately recognize those three iconic words from Rob Reiner’s timeless classic The Princess Bride and now, they’re also the title of a new memoir from the film’s star, Cary Elwes, which has been tearing it up on the New York Times’ bestseller list since it was released a few weeks ago.

Elwes has more to celebrate these days too; the long-time actor who has appeared in a variety of projects like Glory, Hot Shots!, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Twister, Dracula, Kiss the Girls, The X-Files, Shadow of the Vampire and Liar Liar, has also been spending some time recently reminiscing about his role as Doctor Gordon in honor of Lionsgate’s recent re-release of James Wan’s Saw.

This Elvis And Richard Nixon Biopic Just Hired The Best Possible Actors

6 November 2014 11:24 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The image above is a real moment in history, depicting the when the hip swinging singer and movie star Elvis Presley met the 37th president of the United States, Richard Milhous Nixon. And soon it'll be a movie starring Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey. Coming Soon reports Boardwalk Empire's Michael Shannon will play Presley to House of Cards star Kevin Spacey's Nixon in the docudrama Elvis & Nixon. The screenplay, penned by Hanala Sagal, Joey Sagal and Princess Bride star Cary Elwes, reportedly captures these two men--one a figure of pop culture, the other one of the most influential politicians of his time--at a moment when both were at the peak of their power, but fully aware of how short these heydays can be. Regarding the casting of Shannon and Spacey, producer Cassian Elwes said in an official statement, "After the enormous success of The Butler I have a »

Kevin Spacey and Michael Shannon Will Play Nixon and Elvis in Elvis & Nixon

6 November 2014 10:15 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Cary Elwes has written a movie about that time Elvis met Richard Nixon, and now he's gotten Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey to star as two of the Top 10 Most Outstanding Men in America. Shannon will play Elvis and Spacey will play Nixon, and it's hard to say which casting will provide for more scenery-chewing: Shannon glammed up and rambling about "Communist brainwashing techniques," or Spacey giving a paranoid spin on his weaselly House of Cards performance. This movie is going to be a glorious mess, or it'll win all the Oscars. Either way, we're so excited, we've created this exclusive preview image. Pin it to your Pinterest! »

Michael Shannon as Elvis and Kevin Spacey as Nixon in New Movie

6 November 2014 7:13 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

So here's a crazy-sounding film project with an amazing cast for us to keep our eye on. The movie is called Elvis & Nixon, and Michael Shannon (Man of Steel) has been cast as Elvis Presley, and Kevin Spacey (Superman Returns) will be playing President Richard Nixon.

This is some incredibly interesting casting, and just that alone is enough to get me excited about this film project. The movie is based on the fascinating true story about how Elvis's urgent request of Nixon. Here's the synopsis:

Two men at the height of their powers, conscious they could not stay on top forever, both ripped with fear of the inevitable, sharing one famous private moment in the Oval office.  Elvis & Nixon recounts the morning of December 21st 1970, when the King of Rock’ n Roll (Michael Shannon) showed up on the White House lawn to request a meeting with the most powerful man in the world, »

Casting: Michael Shannon & Kevin Spacey Are 'Elvis & Nixon,' Chris Cooper Is J.D. Salinger & More

6 November 2014 6:18 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Originally slated to star Eric Bana and Danny Huston, the long in the works "Elvis & Nixon" now has a new leading duo which should get it off the ground. Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey will star in the movie, co-written by Cary Elwes, that recounts the morning of December 21st 1970, when the King of Rock’ n Roll (Shannon) showed up on the White House lawn to request a meeting with the most powerful man in the world, President Richard Nixon (Spacey). He had a very urgent request: to be sworn in as an undercover Federal Agent at large. This intimate moment in the Oval office between two men at the height of their powers has never been told. Elwes had been planning to make his directorial debut with the project, but that gig has been handed over to Liza Johnson ("Return," "Hateship Loveship"). No word yet on when shooting might begin but financing is underway. »

Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey will be 'Elvis & Nixon' (respectively)

6 November 2014 4:45 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ron Howard’s "Frost/Nixon" disappointed with only $18 million at the domestic box office. So the logical thought was, "Sequel!?" Well, say hello to "Elvis & Nixon," the "Mothra vs. Godzilla" of the Richard Nixon franchise. Ok, "Elvis & Nixon" has nothing to do with Howard’s film, but it is an in-the-works docudrama starring two major talents that could prove even more fruitful than the Michael Sheen/Frank Langella pairing. Production company Bloom announced late Wednesday evening that Michael Shannon will play Elvis Presley against Kevin Spacey’s Richard Nixon in the based-on-a-true-story film. Liza Johnson ("Return," "Hateship Loveship") will direct "Elvis & Nixon" based on a script by Cary Elwes (of "Princess Bride" fame)and actors Hanala and Joey Sagal. Indie producer Cassian Elwes ("The Butler," Cary’s brother) will produce alongside Holly Wiersma ("Dallas Buyers Club").
