2015 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Noah Pritzker’s The Quitters

13 November 2014 11:15 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Noah Pritzker first surfaced with his short Little Dad (SXSW ’12), and in the summer of 2013 (see set pic), plugged away in the fog with his directorial debut. The San Fran resident shot in his own backyard with a cinematographer worth noting in Jakob Ihre (Oslo, 31. august). Backed by a strong indie duo producing team, Pritzker had Moonrise Kingdom‘s Kara Hayward, Saffron Burrows, Mira Sorvino and Kieran Culkin as his set of players.

Gist: Co-written by Pritzker and Ben Tarnoff,  this explores the upper class San Franciscan society and centers on Clark (Ben Konigsberg), a high school student, struggling to come to terms with the demands of his family, society, love. Kara Hayward plays Etta, a high school freshman dealing with her parents divorce.

Production Co./Producers: Luca Borghese (Girl Most Likely) and Ben Howe (Gabriel)

Prediction: Park City at Midnight is a possibility, and SXSW will certainly we circling this as well. »

The Question Kieran Culkin Always Gets Asked About She's All That

24 October 2014 2:22 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There's one question Kieran Culkin gets asked a lot about She's All That. Surprisingly, it has nothing to do with with making the Shermanator hoover a pizza with some really disgusting seasoning. Nor is it a request for him to do the "Sega!" line. In fact, it's something more random than that, and it has to do with his ears. In an interview with The Daily Beast, when the subject of the 1999 teen rom-com She's All That came up, and Culkin revealed the question his friends constantly ask him... It.s one of those movies that always seems to be on.and I only know that because friends are always telling me, and then they.ll ask, .Why did you have hearing aids?. and I.ll be like, .I don.t fucking know!. And that's that. In the film about a dreamy guy (Freddie Prinze Jr.) who accepts a bet »

Kiernan Shipka, Meg Ryan Board Teen Comedy ‘Fan Girl’

23 October 2014 1:46 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Mad Men‘s Kiernan Shipka has been joined by Meg Ryan and Moonrise Kingdom‘s Kara Hayward in Fan Girl, about a 15-year-old post-Millennial teen who lives for making movies and idolizing her favorite band.

Scott Adsit (30 Rock, Big Hero 6), Joshua Boone, and Bill Sage (We Are What We Are) also star. Paul Jarrett is making his directorial debut with the semi-autobiographical film scripted by Gina O’Brien, whose own Sundance entry Once More With Feeling was produced by Jarrett.

Broadway Box Office: Nathan Lane and James Earl Jones pack 'em in. Mia Farrow? Not so much

6 October 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It's Only a Play doesn't open until this Thursday, but the backstage comedy revival is already minting money for its producers at Broadway's Schoenfeld Theatre. The star-studded show—featuring Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, Megan Mullally, F. Murray Abraham, Stockard Channing, and Harry Potter alum Rupert Grint—grossed an impressive $1.25 million for the week ending Oct. 5, according to figures from the Broadway League. That's a remarkable haul for a non-musical—and actually exceeds the potential earnings for the venue (thanks mostly to premium tickets sales and high demand).

Hollywood Heads to Broadway

16 September 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Every year, the glittering lights and unique experience of Broadway lures Hollywood actors to the East Coast; some are veterans of the stage and others are making their Broadway debut. Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), James Franco (This is the End) and Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) all made their Broadway debuts earlier this year, with O’Dowd receiving a Tony nomination for Of Mice and Men and Cranston winning a Tony for All The Way. Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), who hadn’t been on Broadway since his 2004 run in Assassins, scored his first Tony nomination and win for Hedwig and the Angry Inch this summer.

The Broadway lineup for the end of the year hosts a number of Hollywood actors making their Broadway debuts, and they are joined by an illustrious group of Broadway vets returning to the stage.

Theater Review: The Unexpected Greatness of Michael Cera, in This Is Our Youth

11 September 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Michael Cera, he of the turtle face and pipe-cleaner arms, has cornered the market on screen nerdism to the point you would think there was nothing left for him to mine from the indignations of the socially awkward. Turns out, given material deep enough, there is. He’s found that material in Kenneth Lonergan’s This Is Our Youth, and under Anna D. Shapiro’s superlative direction uses it to fuel an unforgettable performance, the more so for marking his New York stage debut. As the overliteral, quasi-Asperger’s lost-soul 19-year-old Warren Straub — Cera is 26 but passes just fine — he digs so far into the character’s drugged-out disappointment you see only the shadows of it rippling the surface. Surprisingly that’s enough; he’s a triumph.The rest of the production—which also stars Kieran Culkin and Tavi Gevinson — does not quite live up to that level, but then »

Michael Cera, Kieran Culkin Debut On Broadway; Off-Broadway ‘Booty’ Star Is Born

11 September 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

No play ever celebrated arrested development quite so amusingly as Kenneth Lonergan’s This Is Our Youth, a shambling off-Broadway hit from 1996 now revived starring Michael Cera, Kieran Culkin and an ingenue named Tavi Gavinson, all making their Broadway debuts. The production is the latest transfer by Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre, and as staged by Anna D. Shapiro, it’s typical of that celebrated troupe in its physicality combined with thoughtfulness.

The time is the 1980s and the setting is the apartment of Dennis (Culkin), who passes the time selling weed and coke while waiting for his life to happen. When his equally vacant but much milder friend Warren (Cera, of Juno and Arrested Development) shows up with $15,000 stolen from his possibly mobbed-up father, the boys consider several options: using the money to score a major drug deal and make even more money; return it before Warren’s father discovers »

‘This Is Our Youth’ Theater Review: Michael Cera, Kieran Culkin Get Serious in Broadway Debuts

11 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

How much does Judd Apatow owe to Kenneth Lonergan's 1996 play, “This Is Our Youth,” which opened Thursday at the Cort Theater, in its first Broadway engagement? The play has so many elements that were to become Apatow hallmarks: the awkward teenage sex (“Freaks and Geeks”), the vintage toy collection (“The 40 Year-Old Virgin”), the slacker abode (“Knocked Up”), and, of course, the drugs (all of the above). Lonergan was there first to document that odd, unnamed territory between school and a real life, which for his 25-year-old-ish character Dennis (Kieran Culkin in a Broadway debut that's a career breakthrough) may. »

Broadway box office: Andrew Rannells still packs them in for 'Hedwig'

25 August 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Neil Patrick Harris may have hung up his five-inch pumps, but audiences are still lining up for Hedwig and the Angry Inch. According to figures from the Broadway League, the Tony-winning musical revival took in $648,738 for the week ending Aug. 24—the first with Book of Mormon alum Andrew Rannells in the cross-dressing title role. While that’s a steep drop from Nph’s final week, when the show grossed a whopping $1.14 million, it still represents an enviable 82 percent of the potential earnings for the 1,007-seat Belasco Theatre. (Harris’ star power enabled producers to sell many more “premium” tickets for well above the average price. »

Mark Ruffalo After ‘Normal Heart': ‘If A Piano Dropped On Me Tomorrow, I Did Ok”

10 August 2014 6:07 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive, Updated At 6:06 p.m. with comments about Spotlight at end: You might call August, 2014 a full-circle month for Mark Ruffalo. His performance as Ned Weeks in Ryan Murphy‘s HBO version of The Normal Heart earned one of that film’s astonishing 16 Emmy nominations, with the winners to be announced on Aug. 25. He’s eager to catch the Broadway revival of the 1996 stage play that launched his career, Kenneth Lonergan‘s This Is Our Youth, which begins on the 18th with Michael Cera and Kieran Culkin.

Writing about his work in Lonergan’s You Can Count On Me, the New York Times’ Stephen Holden said, “Mr. Ruffalo’s star-making performance deserves to be added to the list of charismatic, grownup lost boys that includes the Marlon Brando of  A Streetcar Named Desire and the Jack Nicholson of Easy Rider.”

Steve Martin denies Father of the Bride 3 rumours

18 June 2014 1:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve not heard from George Banks since he was the father of the bride in the 1991 and 1995 comdies, but former Deadline Hollywood reporter (and founder) Nikki Finke claims that a third entry into the series was in development with Steve Martin reprising his role.

According to Finke, Father of the Bride 3 would see the now grown up Kieran Culkin (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World) come out as gay to act as the titular “bride” of the title. Something I’m sure the gay community would be thrilled about.

Finke wrote, “The twist in this threequel is that Little Matty is now 29 and gay and getting married to a Navy Seal’s son.  Father of the bride George is “thunderstruck and speechless” and has problems with the whole gay thing. So wife Nina kicks him out of the house, according to the pitch which Disney loved.”

She continues, “‘It’s a timely idea, »

Steve Martin Returns For Gay-Themed "Bride"

16 June 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Update: Steve Martin himself has denied the report in the best possible way - with a clever quip on Twitter, saying "So excited to read I'm doing Father of the Bride 3 since I haven't seen a script or been offered the role!."

Original: NikkiFinke.com reports that Steve Martin is reportedly set to reprise his title role as George Banks in the comedy "Father of the Bride 3" which will sport a slightly different twist this time.

Disney Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures are currently sorting out the rights to the franchise which began in 1991 in which Martin's character struggled with the emotional and financial burden of the wedding of his daughter Annie (Kimberly Williams-Paisley).

Now, his character faces a similar predicament when he has to throw his gay son Matty a similar wedding to his boyfriend, the son of a Navy Seal.
