‘Knock Knock’s’ Lorenza Izzo Signs With Paradigm (Exclusive)

20 March 2015 11:19 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fresh off Eli Roth’s Sundance premiere “Knock Knock,” an update of 1977’s “Death Game” for which she generated heat thanks to her performance as a sexual temptress-turned-home invader, sought-after Chile-born Lorenza Izzo has signed with Paradigm Talent Agency for representation.

In addition to starring in “Knock Knock,” an upcoming wide release from Lionsgate, which purchased the film at the Sundance Festival for a reported $3 million in one of the biggest deals of this year’s fest, Izzo will also be seen in the lead role, alongside Daryl Sahara and Sky Ferreira, in Roth’s awaited “Green Inferno,” an Amazon-set cannibal horror-thriller. In it, Izzo maintains much of the audience empathy as a well-meaning and plucky student activist who keeps her cool when captured by the same natives she’s come to protect.

Izzo recently starred opposite Haley Joel Osment in the romantic comedy “Sex Ed.” Prior to that, she »

Cuckoo Us remake casts Jane the Virgin actress Rachel Dipillo

11 March 2015 4:32 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

NBC's remake of the BBC sitcom Cuckoo has cast Jane the Virgin actress Rachel Dipillo.

Like the original, the Us Cuckoo will tell the story of a middle-class family who react badly when their daughter marries an irritating eccentric named Cuckoo.

Cuckoo - played by Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Andy Samberg in the UK series - will be portrayed by YouTube star Flula Borg in the remake.

Dipillo will play his new wife Rachel - a part held by Tamla Kari and later Esther Smith in the UK series.

Airing on BBC Three, the original Cuckoo underwent a revamp for its second series, with Twilight star Taylor Lautner replacing Samberg.

NBC's version is under consideration for a series pick-up alongside other comedy pilots including People Are Talking starring Saved By The Bell's Mark-Paul Gosselaar and a remake of 1990 film Problem Child with Matthew Lillard.

Scream: ranking the movies in order of quality

16 February 2015 1:56 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Which is the scariest Scream of them all? We’ve put the satirical, postmodern slasher series in order…

This feature contains spoilers for all of the Scream movies.

Do you like scary movies? Director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson decided most people probably did. In the mid 90s, they breathed life into a flagging genre by creating a new knife-wielding icon who, crucially, was aware of all the horror movie villains who’d gone before.

In fact, ‘Ghostface’ was so into his horror trivia that he quizzed his victims about it before striking. Could watching enough horror movies save you when your own life threatened to turn into one? According to Scream, maybe it could.

Although the first movie ends with – spoiler! – the death of both the killers behind the mask, the Ghostface persona proved harder to kill. In the tradition of so many other slasher villains, Ghostface came back for more. »

Match Movie Review

17 January 2015 11:28 AM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Match Director: Stephen Belber Starring: Patrick Stewart, Carla Gugino and Matthew Lillard People who have garnered respect and notoriety in their chosen career path may not always lead a glamorous life, as they can also easily face hurdles when the public begins to associate them with just one achievement or milestone in their lives. They also often face obstacles in forming meaningful, lasting personal relationships, as they continuously strive to maintain the success they’re grown accustomed to throughout their careers. This is certainly the case with one of the lead character in writer-director Stephen Belber’s new comedy-drama ‘Match,’ the movie adaptation of the filmmaker’s 2005 Tony-nominated play of the  [ Read More ]

Match Review

15 January 2015 7:10 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It is clear by the 15-minute mark of Stephen Belber’s drama Match that the film we are watching had its roots on the stage. The camera is mostly stationary, framing its actors in tight close-ups, and the dialogue lingers on the idiosyncrasies of the characters rather than propelling the story forward. However, the biggest give-away is that Patrick Stewart flamboyantly spits his lines and enunciates each syllable, as if a large audience existed where the camera stands.

Like many plays confined to a couple of settings that eventually transition to the big screen, Match struggles to find a directorial style or mark that differentiates it from the theatre. It also fails to deliver a real purpose to exist in a new medium. (Unlike 12 Angry Men, still the best stage-to-screen adaptation, you often notice that most of the drama is confined to one location.) Fortunately for Belber, strong acting from »

Review: Patrick Stewart Shines In 'Match'

14 January 2015 4:05 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In the fitfully entertaining “Match,” Patrick Stewart is Tobi, an experienced dance instructor who has arrived in New York City after a whirlwind globe-trotting lifestyle. His days are spent working with students craving approval and attention, barking orders through his thick brogue. When he returns home, it is to solitude, to knitting and the occasional deli visit. Tobi is a child of the sixties, and his liberation during that period has allowed him a contemporary peace. That peace is broken when Tobi accepts an offer for an interview with Lisa and Mike (Carla Gugino, Matthew Lillard). His restlessness is endearing, his social anxiety plucky and attractive. When he is joined by the duo at a diner, he exerts effort to make an off-color joke before profusely apologizing. Stewart's performance is of a man who has constantly found time to self-analyze, thinking it's the same as perceiving and understanding the needs of others. »

Stewart’s Eccentricity Barely Keeps “Match” Lit

Groomed and primmed ballet dancers create arches and points which are lauded and corrected by their instructor, kept sharp by his knowledge and dedication to the craft. The bustling bright city of New York as its backdrop, the liveliness of the city is matched only by its protagonist. Introduced at the beginning is a sense of high regard and careful perception which can only be achieved by a writer who like, Tobi, understands his or her own craft to the point where it becomes not just their livelihood but their life. Writer/director Stephen Belber’s start stems from theatre with plays such as Tape (which had its film adaptation directed by Richard Linklater) and The Laramie Project (in which he shares credit with multiple people) and a half dozen years after his film debut in Jennifer Aniston starring Management, he proves to »

Patrick Stewart Is Great in Match, a Stellar Indie Drama

13 January 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Writer-director Stephen Belber's inspiriting, generous Match is so good that it's like some kind of trick. In what can only be characterized as a verdant collaboration between the director and the irreplaceable Patrick Stewart, the film offers a vivid portrait of a huge-hearted Juilliard dance professor named Tobi Powell who loves his art and his students, but who has withdrawn from his friends and colleagues. He's agreed to an interview by Lisa (Carla Gugino) and her husband, Mike (Matthew Lillard), purportedly for her dissertation on the history of dance in the 1960s. But as their conversation progresses through several lengthy, discursive scenes, it becomes clear that the couple has a completely different agenda. As a man, Tobi has much to recommend him: He's convivial, extrov »
