Top Three: Future Arrests in Development with Louis C.K.’s “I’m a Cop”

12 hours ago | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Creator of a show de rigueur, comedian and art-house junkie and lover of films with subtitles Louis C.K. will write, direct and star in an indie budgeted film project. Titled I’m a Cop, his third feature film will be produced by Hollywood titan Scott Rudin, Dave Becky and Blair Breard. While no production start date was mentioned, we’re imagining that the next piece of news will be the casting the mother role. Susan Sarandon would be a great fit.

Gist: A depressed middle-aged man (C.K.) who is a volunteer police officer living in the shadow of his mother, a highly decorated retired officer. When she dies, her continued influence forces him to become a real police officer, which is something he never wanted to be.

Worth Noting: They surely share a strong affinity for the 7th art, C.K. last directed 2001’s Pooty Tang with Chris Rock »

Why 1988 was the best year in movie history

29 April 2015 8:12 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century. Click here for a complete list of our essays. While I tend to think of the '80s as a crassly commercial lull between the artistic adventurousness of the '70s and the independent experimentation of the '90s, there were things about the '80s that i hold dear in terms of what I love about movies. And if you're talking about the best of the '80s, the year that crystallized all the things the decade did well was 1988, a year that looks upon closer inspection like an embarrassment of riches. One of my twenty favorite films of all time, as outlined in this article, was released in 1988, which automatically makes it a year worth closer consideration. The '80s may have begun with one of his strongest films, but »

Marion Cotillard, Lea Seydoux, Vincent Cassel & More to Star in Xavier Dolan's Next Movie

28 April 2015 8:44 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It appears Xavier Dolan has been busier than expected as not only is he preparing to shoot The Death and Life of John F. Donovan this fall, but Seville Films announced today he'll begin shooting It's Only the End of the World (Just la Fin du Monde) in May, following his duties as a member of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival jury. Inspired by the play by Jean-Luc Lagarce, the film will tell the story of a writer (assumed to be Vincent Cassel) who goes back to his hometown, planning on announcing his upcoming death to his family. As resentment soon rewrites the course of the afternoon, all attempts of empathy are sabotaged by people's incapacity to listen and love. Making up this cast along with Cassel are Marion Cotillard, Lea Seydoux, Nathalie Baye (who starred in Dolan's Laurence Anyways) and Gaspard Ulliel.

Seydoux, Cotillard Join Dolan's "World"

28 April 2015 5:55 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Lea Seydoux, Marion Cotillard, Vincent Cassel, Nathalie Baye and Gaspard Ulliel are all set to star in MK2 and Telefilm Canada's "It's Only the End of the World," the sixth film from young Quebecois filmmaker Xavier Dolan.

Based on a play of the same name by Jean-Luc Lagarce, the story follows a writer who goes back to his hometown when he plans to announce his upcoming death to his family. As resentment soon rewrites the course of the afternoon, all attempts of empathy are sabotaged by people's incapacity to listen and love.

Filming is slated to begin in late May and Dolan will shoot the project before he gets to work on his previously announced first Hollywood film "The Death and Life of John F. Donovan" starring Kit Harington and Susan Sarandon.

Dolan, coming off great praise for last year's Cannes entry "Mommy," has also directed the likes of "Tom at the Farm, »

Riviera Maya Film Festival Brings Best of the Fests to Mexico

23 April 2015 6:14 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In three Mexican cities along the Yucatan Peninsula in the state of Quintana Roo, the Riviera Maya Film Festival launches its annual program of free screenings for the public. Most theaters in the region screen commercial films, but Rmff believes that people deserve to see other kinds of movies, and so the festival brings films from many of the heavy hitters: Cannes, Toronto, Berlin and Venice among them. Riviera Maya has managed to attract some starry talent, too. And why not? It's in a temperate environment, away from the flash bulbs of Hollywood. Last year the red carpet rolled out for Peter Sarsgaard and Maggie Gyllenhaal, and in the past the festival has recruited Ethan Hawke, Clive Owen, Susan Sarandon, Patricia Arquette, Stephen Dorff, Vanessa Hudgens and Christian Slater. The festival also has its own Lab, which bolsters emerging independent film projects and invites "work-in-progress" screenings, giving filmmakers a chance »

Susan Sarandon Exec Producing Feminist Nun Doc ‘Radical Grace’

16 April 2015 9:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Susan Sarandon has boarded “Radical Grace” as executive producer in advance of the feature documentary’s world premiere at the Hot Docs Festival in Toronto, Variety has learned.

“Grace,” the feature bow of Chicago filmmaker Rebecca Parrish, follows three American feminist nuns whose work for social justice causes sets them against the conservative hierarchy of the Catholic church.

“This film comes at a major crossroads in the Catholic church, and the nuns are everything that’s right with the institution. They stand with the marginalized, and won’t be bullied by a hierarchy that still doesn’t treat them as equals,” commented Sarandon, who received the lead actress Oscar in 1996 for her portrayal of Sister Helen Prejean in “Dead Man Walking.”

“I was raised Catholic,” Sarandon continued, “and while I couldn’t stay in a church that sidelines women and the Lgbt community, spirituality is still an important part of my life. »
