In what will be their first on-screen collaboration – Page and Mara have worked together on comedy sketches including Funny or Die’s hilarious Tiny Detectives – we understand the pair will find themselves butting heads in Ezer’s feature, with Page attached to the role of Lucy, the daughter of a shunned man on death row. Mara, meanwhile, will portray the title character who hails from the opposite end of the political cause. Sparks inevitably fly as Lucy begins to call her troubled father-daughter relationship into question.
Also starring Amy Seimetz, Pablo Schreiber and Elias Koteas, production on Mercy is expected to get underway in Cincinnati next month, lending Tali Shalom Ezer and Co. ample time to align the romantic picture for next year’s festival circuit. »

Ellen Page and Kate Mara are set to star alongside each other in Tali Shalom Ezer’s romantic drama “Mercy,” Variety reports. The film will also feature turns from Amy Seimetz, Pablo Schreiber and Elias Koteas.
Per Variety, “Page is portraying Lucy, the daughter of a man on death row falling in love with Mara’s Mercy character, a woman on the opposing side of her family’s political cause. As a result, Lucy’s value for truth is tested as her world begins to unravel.”
Ezer, who previously directed the Sundance drama “Princess,” will direct the film from a script by Joe Barton. The film will be produced by Christine Vachon and David Hinojosa for Killer Films, along with Page and Mara. And it sounds like “Mercy” is a passion project for everyone involved, »

"In this world, a man, himself, is nothing." War is hell. In late 1998, Terrence Malick release his third film, The Thin Red Line, set during World War II telling the story of a group of American soldiers fighting in the Guadalcanal Campaign in the Pacific Theater of World War II. The film was overshadowed by Saving Private Ryan, also released earlier in 1998, but earned a following in the years since as many critics have analyzed Malick's work even further. The war film has an incredible ensemble cast, including: Sean Penn, Jim Caviezel, Nick Nolte, Elias Koteas, Ben Chaplin, plus John Cusack, Adrien Brody, John C. Reilly, Woody Harrelson, Jared Leto, Miranda Otto, John Travolta and George Clooney. So far this re-release is only scheduled for France, but this is might be worth revisiting on your own time anyway. Here's the new re-release trailer for Terrence Malick's The Thin Red Line, »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows (barely) won the box office this past weekend and in celebration of the Heroes in a Half Shell making their comeback to the big screen, we're taking a look back at their first cinematic outing in a new episode of Pop-Up Movie Facts with 1990's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which starred Judith Hoag, Elias Koteas, Corey Feldman, and Sam Rockwell.

In our nerdy Ninja Turtle-lovin' opinion, Casey Jones is a character so important to the Tmnt mythology, he should play a huge role in all of the movies. And he does just that in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (June 3), as Stephen Amell (Arrow) portrays a live-action version of the hockey mask-wearing tough guy for the first time since 1993 (we love you Elias Koteas!), not counting this short fan film (Chris Evans voiced Jones in the 2007 animated movie). The notorious street vigilante gets a deeper origin story here, making him a corrections officer with aspirations to become a detective one day. "We don’t get in this movie the full-fledged, five-alarm fire Casey Jones that a lot of fans of the Turtles and the cartoon and the comics are...

During the WonderCon panel for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows back in March, it was revealed that Portlandia star/creator Fred Armisen would provide the voice of the iconic villain Krang. The casting took many by surprise, but it turns out that we won't be hearing Fred Armisen voicing Krang after all, when the sequel opens on June 3. A new report reveals that Brad Garrett has stepped in to replace Fred Armisen as the fan-favorite character.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Fred Armisen's casting was never officially confirmed, and he ended up dropping out over scheduling conflicts. It isn't known if the voice actor dropped out recently, or if Brad Garrett has already begun voice work for the sequel, which hits theaters in just a few short weeks. The casting switch may explain why we haven't heard Krang speak yet, even though he has been seen in recent trailers. »

As the debate rages on if Terrence Malick‘s recent work matches up to his earlier output (we fall firmly on the side that it’ll be greater appreciated as time goes on), today we have a documentary that explores his process — although, as one might expect, there’s no sight of him across the 90 minutes. Rosy-Fingered Dawn: A Film on Terrence Malick, fittingly named after a description of the goddess of dawn, Aurora, premiered back in 2002 at the Venice Film Festival, but has been hard to find since then.
Hailing from Italy and directed by Luciano Barcaroli, Carlo Hintermann, Gerardo Panichi, and Daniele Villa, it focuses on the making of the three films that had been made then: Badlands, Days of Heaven, and The Thin Red Line. Featuring interviews with Jack Fisk, Sean Penn, Martin Sheen, Sam Shepart, Sissy Spacek, Billy Weber, Haskell Wexler, Elias Koteas, Jim Caviezel, Ennio Morricone, »
