Sundance Favorite 'Me & Earl & the Dying Girl' Set for July Release

24 February 2015 4:24 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Briefly: Fox Searchlight has confirmed (via @ERCboxoffice) a release date for the upcoming indie sensation Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, which won both the Audience Award & Grand Jury Prize at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, and won our hearts too. The film earned a top spot on our list of the Best of the Fest, as well as plenty of glowing reviews by the end of the festival. It's definitely going to find an audience outside of the fest, and Fox Searchlight is banking on its success. The studio has scheduled a limited release starting on July 1st, 2015 this summer, which is when they usually open one of their new Sundance gems. We'll be following this release closely as it's one of our favorites, too. In related release date news, Open Road Films has scheduled Oliver Stone's Snowden film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt for release starting Christmas Day, »

Nicolas Cage Joins Edward Snowden Biopic

24 February 2015 1:52 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Cathleen Allison/AP

An appearance from Nicolas Cage in a good film now seems as common as a unicorn sighting or finding a Freddo that’s still only 10p. Whilst we still await the other two occurrences with great anticipation, Deadline have revealed that Cage will be making a potential comeback, courtesy of the Edward Snowden biopic from Oliver Stone which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Based on Luke Harding’s book ’The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man’ and ‘Time of the Octopus’ by Anatoly Kucherena, Snowden will tell the story of the U.S. whistleblower who sought asylum in Russia after leaking classified files from the Nsa to the media in 2013. Levitt is set to star as the titular secret-spiller, whilst Cage is down to play a former U.S. Intelligence official.

The Oscar winning star (yeah, that happened once) is just the recent »

Nicolas Cage joins Oliver Stone’s Snowden film

23 February 2015 11:00 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Nicolas Cage is a Us intelligence officer in the new Oliver Stone film on Edward Snowden. Joseph Gordon-Levitt also stars.

Nicolas Cage has not been in a strong film for a while, yet given the subject matter of his newest project, this is hopefully about to change. Indeed, Cage has been cast in the new Oliver Stone film, Snowden.

On the heels of Edward Snowden’s story striking Oscar gold last night, when Citizenfour took home the statuette for Best Documentary Feature, Stone’s narrative account on the man is taking increasing shape.

Cage has been cast in the role of a former Us intelligence officer that becomes entangled in the Snowden case. This further builds an impressive cast that is led by Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the titular role of the man who leaked classified information about Nsa wiretapping citizens. The ensemble also includes Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, »
