After writing the likes of Rust And Bone and A Prophet, script man Thomas Bidegain is taking the chance to make his film-directing debut with a drama called Les Cowboys. He’s just landed John C. Reilly to join the cast.Les Cowboys, which Bidegain wrote with regular collaborator Noe Debre, follows a father (Francois Damiens) who discovers that his daughter has disappeared after she started dating a young Muslim fundamentalist. He teams up with his son (Finnegan Oldfield) to find her, travelling around the globe from Lyon to Pakistan and ends up having to recruit help from an American headhunter (Reilly). As you might have guessed from his previous credits, this is not Bidegain turning to knockabout farce for his first turn in the director's chair.“Les Cowboys touches on serious issues which have social, political and religious implications but our primary endeavour with this film is to depict »
Alain Attal’s Les Productions du Tresor, the outfit behind Cannes players such as Guillaume Canet’s “Blood Ties” and Maiwenn’s “Polisse,” is lead-producing the movie. Belgium’s Lumière and Les Films du Fleuve, the Dardennes brothers’ outfit, are co-producing.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is out on DVD and Blu-ray today, and Yahoo! Movies caught up with director James Gunn during the press tour for the home-entertainment release, with Gunn taking a moment to discuss the villainous characters of the space opera – specifically, Karen Gillen’s Nebula, calling her “the Boba Fett of the film” and seemingly implying that we’ll be seeing plenty more of her in 2017’s Guardians of the Galaxy 2.
“I have so many plans for Nebula, in my personal life, and… I love Nebula. I fell in love with the design of Nebula. I cast the role around that design. I fell in love with Karen [Gillan] as a person, who I love, and I love the character of Nebula…. To me, she’s the Boba Fett of the movie, she’s the one that you really dig, she’s the cool one that we need to get more of, »

Despite the lottery-esque sounding odds, the U.S Dramatic Competition section which produces the finest American indie specimens such as Frozen River, Winter’s Bone, Blue Valentine, Martha Marcy May Marlene, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Fruitvale Station and Whiplash is fairly consistent in terms of quality. Last year’s crop of sixteen have almost all had their theatrical releases with Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter being the last one out of the gates (pegged with an early 2015 release). Last week we individually looked at our top 80 Sundance Film Fest Predictions (you’ll find 30 other titles worth considering in our intro) and below, we’ve split the list into narrative and non-fiction film items and have both identified and color-coded our picks in an AtoZ cheat sheet. You’ll find 2015′s answer to Whiplash located somewhere in the stack below. Click on the individual titles below, for the film’s profile. »

It was a movie that turned Chris Pratt into a household name and mega star, but there was a chance that he wasn’t going to play Star Lord in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Although the Parks and Recreation star did eventually take the role, Gunn has revealed who his second choice to play the part was.
“Glenn [Howerton] came along a little bit later, but there was a good chance that, if I didn’t cast Chris, that I would’ve cast Glenn Howerton in the role,” Gunn told GQ journalist Drew Magary.
If you’re unaware of that name, Glenn Howerton is one of the stars of TV’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
What do you make of this second choice? Would he have made a better or worse Star Lord than Pratt?

Sarah Silverman corralled a whole bunch of funny friends, including Seth Rogen, John C. Reilly, Key & Peele and Tig Notaro, to contribute to the inaugural episode of Rubberhead, a new comedy variety show from Vimeo and the comedy collective Jash.
Silverman hosts the first episode, and as she succinctly introduces it in the trailer, "Welcome to a night of weird." The succession of clips includes everything from Rogen and Silverman engaging in some some high-octane cop action to a man with a weirdly shaped head chucking a Big Gulp at an innocent pedestrian. »
Vin Diesel says exactly three words in Marvel's hit "Guardians of the Galaxy," but people allover the world never get tired of hearing them. We've already heard Diesel say "I am Groot" in a measly five languages, but now your entertainment will to be tripled as Marvel has released a new video translating the key phrase into no less than fifteen different tongues. The clip also spells out the phrase in each respective language, so you can learn such disparate languages as Hungarian, Italian and Japanese. It does not include Klingon, Elvish or Esperanto Watch it here: Directed by James Gunn, "Guardians" also stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, David Bautista, Glenn Close, John C. Reilly, Karen Gillan and Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon. "Guardians of the Galaxy" is available on various digital platforms, and arrives on DVD and Blu-ray December 9.

With Guardians of the Galaxy available today in Digital HD, Disney has released a featurette with Groot (Vin Diesel) saying his limited vocabulary of "I am Groot" in fifteen languages. Rather than just have the same clip play again and again with a different language each time, this bit is really well put together as it has the line at various points of the movie, and then puts up a graphic of the sentence in the respective language. I don't know this will spur anyone to buy the movie in Digital HD rather than just wait a few weeks for the Blu-ray (I admit it's tempting to buy the film now), but this piece is still entertaining. Hit the jump to watch the Guardians of the Galaxy featurette of Groot and his favorite phrase, and click here to watch our recent interview with director James Gunn. The film hits shelves on December 9th, »

Another deleted scene from Guardians of the Galaxy has been released for your enjoyment, and it’s pretty damn funny. In it, Rhomann Dey (John C. Reilly) has a little wardrobe malfunction with his Nova Corps costume. The clip is called “The Kyln Will Have to Do,” and you can check it out below. We posted another deleted scene from the movie last week featuring a confrontation between Nebula and Gamora. That scene is included in the video below as well, and it plays before the funny new clip with Rhomann Dey.

The Writers Guild Italia and the Black List have formed a new alliance, paving the way for Wgi members to list their scripts in the Black List database. The Black List has similar partnerships with the WGA West and East, the Writers Guild of Great Britain and the Writers Guild of Canada. However, this is the first time it has partnered with a non-English-speaking guild – a sign that good unproduced ideas come in many forms. An Italian film, The Great Beauty, of course won the Foreign Language Film Oscar last year — returning the statue to the country for the first time in 15 years — and local comedies are consistently hot at the box office. The Black List notes that although most Wgi members write primarily in Italian, many have great facility with the English language. Given the fluid language barriers, plus translation, and the unique point of view, culture, and style »

Without a shadow of a doubt, the most popular character to come out from Guardians of the Galaxy was not just Groot, but dancing Baby Groot. Appearing in the closing credits of the movie, Dancing Baby Groot shakes his little tree booty to Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” and became a sensation over night. So much so that the demand for a toy was immense. Well we’re finally getting one, and director James Gunn has spoke out about why it took so long.
“While we were still shooting the movie, I brought up putting Dancing Baby Groot out as a toy,” Gunn told Vulture. “The reason it didn’t happen is because you have some control in the film industry over secrets getting out there, but the people you don’t have much control over are the toy people, unfortunately. Those toy designs get out, always! And »
