Nicolas Cage’s ‘Vengeance: A Love Story’ Lands at FilmRise

21 June 2017 3:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

FilmRise has acquired the Patriot Pictures thriller “Vengeance: A Love Story,” starring Nicolas Cage as a detective seeking vigilante justice.

FilmRise is planning a fall release in theaters and on VOD. Cage had been attached to direct “Vengeance: A Love Story” in 2016, but later stepped aside.

The film, is based on the 2003 novel “Rape: A Love Story” by Joyce Carol Oates. The novel centers on the aftermath a gang rape, with the victim left for dead in a park boathouse. The woman is a single mother in her 30s, and the attack is witnessed by her daughter — whose credibility is attacked at the subsequent trial.

Patriot’s Harold Becker and Michael Mendelsohn developed the film for eight years. Anna Hutchison portrays the single mother and Talitha Bateman plays her 12-year old daughter. Don Johnson portrays the criminal defense attorney.

“Vengeance is an incredible story of the subsequent effect violence (and vigilante justice) have on multiple generations of women,” said Mendelsohn. “It’s a modern movie with super talented professionals, Nicolas Cage and Don Johnson, going head to head.”

Vengeance: A Love Story” was shot in Atlanta and directed by Johnny Martin, a former stuntman and second unit director in his feature directorial debut. The “Vengeance” screenplay was adapted by John Mankiewicz.

Vengeance: A Love Story” was produced by Cage and Mendelsohn. Executive producers are Harold Becker, Mike Nilon, Patricia Eberle, and Richard Rionda Del Castro; and co-executive produced by Martin J. Barab, Dama Claire and Randy Mendelsohn, as well as Etchie Stroh and Shahar Stroh of Moonstone Entertainment.  Mendelsohn’s Union Patriot Capital Management fully financed the film.

The deal was negotiated between FilmRise’s Danny Fisher and Max Einhorn with Etchie Stroh.

Sky 1 has announced that Lindsay Lohan will be joining Rupert Grint and Nick Frost for the second season of its upcoming comedy series Sick Note, which is due to launch its first season this autumn.

The series follows the story of Daniel Glass (Rupert Grint), a compulsive liar stuck in a failing relationship and dead-end insurance job, under the thumb of irrepressible boss Kenny West (Don Johnson). Just when things couldn’t get any worse, Daniel is wrongly diagnosed with a terminal illness by his incompetent doctor Ian Glennis (Nick Frost). When the error comes to light, Dr Glennis convinces Daniel to hide the truth of his misdiagnosis from colleagues, friends and family in a lie that spirals wildly out of control. Season two will see Lohan joining the cast as Katerina West, the daughter of Daniel’s boss.

Rupert Grint: First Still from Sick Note Season 2!

12 June 2017 9:58 AM, PDT | Rupert-Grint.us/ | See recent Rupert Grint - Ice Cream Man news »

une 12th, 2017, 1:05pm– Rupert Grint started filming season 2 of Sick Note last week and we already have an official first still from the new series. The picture was first released by Lindsay Lohan on twitter and several news outlets have picked up the story and supplied it with more exciting information (e.g. see here and here). The show has apparently switched from Sky Atlantic to Sky 1 and season 1 will air later this year at 10pm. The second series will then follow soon after and will consist of 8 episodes of 30 min (season 1 will have 6 episodes with 5 being 30 min and one lasting an hour). Jon Mountague, head of comedy for Sky, has this to say about season 2 of Sick Note: One lie leads to the next in this unsettlingly brilliant comedy that will hook viewers in and have them on the very edge of their seats. Filming for series two is already under way and we’re delighted to confirm Lindsay Lohan will be joining Rupert and Nick in this stellar comedy cast. Lindsay Lohan will play Don Johnson‘s daughter (who plays Rupert’s boss) Katerina West. Let’s hope we get loads of sightings from the set like we did last year when they shot season 1. Weirdly, another still – though very very similar to the first one – was tweeted by Now TV. See it Here. Now we can play “spot the difference” in the comments »

The Mighty Boosh’s Julian Barratt and Yonderland’s Simon Farnaby talk to us about their Isle of Man action comedy, Mindhorn...

When you get to chat to two comedy geniuses at once, it doesn’t feel much like an interview. It’s more like sitting in on some well-honed hilarity, and trying not to make a tit of yourself when you try and interject with a question. This is what it felt like when I sat down with Julian Barratt and Simon Farnaby for twenty minutes, in a snazzy central London meeting room, to talk about Mindhorn.

Crackle's most-watched original drama lands a second season, with Harry Potter's Rupert Grint set to return...

"Rupert, Luke [Pasqualino] and the rest of the cast have created memorable characters who truly resonated with our viewers," Crackle's manager Eric Berger said, "and we look forward to following their adventures in season 2 of Snatch."

Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint plays Charlie Cavendish in the organised crime caper, and it's the second piece of good news he's has this month, after his other show Sick Note was renewed earlier in April for a second season over at Sky Atlantic, before the first has even started airing. »
