'Midnight Rider' Loses William Hurt Following Crew Member's Death

23 April 2014 4:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

William Hurt has dropped out of the Gregg Allman biopic Midnight Rider, two months after production was suspended following the death of 27-year-old camera assistant Sarah Jones. Since William Hurt was playing Gregg Allman in this adaptation of the singer's biography, it remains unclear whether or not the production will start back up again, as investigations continue into the tragic on-set accident.

Production was taking place in Atlanta, Georgia when, on February 20, a train collided with film equipment in rural Doctortown, Ga, where the crew was setting up for shooting on a train trestle that overlooks the Altamaha River, resulting in Sarah Jones' death and seven other crew members getting injured. According to Deadline, the movie's producers were apparently still trying to rally the crew to continue production in the days following, but shooting was eventually suspended.

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Boulevard’

22 April 2014 1:07 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In “Boulevard,” a middle-aged married man picks up a gay hustler on the Nashville street where hookers hang out, pays the kid for company instead of sex, and ever-so-gradually begins to confront the secret identity he’s suppressed for so long. Knowing that man is played by Robin Williams (in morose rather than manic mode) tells you everything you need to know about the film, which is well written, acted and directed, and yet somehow never manages to surprise. That approach has its advantages, however, making the unfulfilled character’s sexuality almost secondary to the ways in which straight audiences can relate.

As best friend Winston (Bob Odenkirk) puts it in the film, “Maybe it’s never too late to start living the life you really want” — an optimistic philosophy that may as well be the mantra for a project director Dito Montiel (“A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints”) felt »

Tribeca: Between Nas and 'Begin Again,' what are the festival's must-see movies

16 April 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The Tribeca Film Festival began as a way for New York to rebuild culturally after the World Trade Center attacks in 2001. For the first time since then, the area around Ground Zero is dominated by a sparkly, newly finished Freedom Tower, which represents so much more than the city’s resilience and recovery. The Tribeca festival played a small, but not insignificant, role in that recovery, inviting artists and film lovers to the city and reassuring New Yorkers that life can be beautiful even in the darkest of days.

After more than a decade of growth, Tribeca is also entering »

Those Who Kill: A&E TV Show Returning; Not Cancelled But...

26 March 2014 9:28 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Ratings-challenged Those Who Kill is coming back to television -- but it's not returning to A&E. While the show hasn't been cancelled, the move isn't exactly a sign of confidence from the cable channel.

The show revolves around a homicide detective (Chloe Sevigny) and an academic forensic psychologist (James D’Arcy) who work to solve crimes in Pittsburgh. Others in the cast include James Morrison, Omid Abtahi, Kerry O’Malley, Bruce Davison, Kathy Baker, Michael Rispoli, and Anne Dudek.

A&Amp;E pulled Those Who Kill from the schedule after two episodes had aired to low ratings. The premiere attracted 3.07 million but the second installment plunged to just 830,000.

On the show's Facebook page, it was quietly announced that the Chloe Sevigny series will return this Sunday on Lmn TV (Lifetime Movie Network). Lmn is a sister network to A&Amp;E.

Lifetime Nabs Indie Pic ‘Return to Zero’ for Global Push

17 March 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Return to Zero” was a labor of love for writer-director Sean Hanish, and now Lifetime is giving a global platform to the independently financed pic.

“Zero” stars Minnie Driver and Paul Adelstein in the story of a couple who are devastated and break up after enduring a stillbirth but wind up reuniting when the wife becomes pregnant again. Alfred Molina, Connie Nielsen, Sarah Jones, Andrea Anders and Kathy Baker also star.

Pic will bow May 17 in the U.S. and also be rolled out on Lifetime channels in Canada, the U.K., France, Spain and key Southeast Asian territories. A+E is also handling global sales of the title in other territories.

Pic was inspired by Hanish’s personal experiences. He self-financed the project, which piqued Lifetime’s interest in making it the cabler’s first global premiere. Paul Jaconi-Biery produced “Zero” with Hanish.

Pic premiered Sunday at an indie film fest in Rome. »
