1 hour ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Zooey Deschanel and Anton Yelchin are to play the leads in an adaptation of Tom Drury’s 2006 dark comic novel. Sounding like a variation on Blue Velvet with a an influx of hipster talent, the plot sees a bartender Pierre (Yelchin) returning to his home town only to fall for a mysterious beauty (Deschanel), which in turn puts him on a collision course with a psychotic criminal, to be played by John Hawkes (Winter’S Bone).

Keith Kjarval of Unified Pictures will be producing the film with Bron Studios and is waxing lyrical about the upcoming project:

“We are quite excited about making this film as it is so darkly humorous and wrought with atmosphere and frankly, I am excited to be telling such a delicious story with some of my favorite actors.”

Deschanel and Yelchin are far from your typical movie couple and the prospect of seeing Deschanel subvert »

Zooey Deschanel And Anton Yelchin To Star In The Driftless Area

15 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Zooey Deschanel and Anton Yelchin have been added to the cast of The Driftless Area, an upcoming dark comedy from Unified Pictures and Bron Studios. Based on Tom Drury’s novel of the same name, the script for the film was written by Drury and Zachary Sluser, who will also be directing.

The Driftless Area will follow Pierre (Yelchin), a quiet bartender who goes back to his hometown after his parents die. There, he meets the mysterious Stella (Deschanel) and falls madly in love with her. Unfortunately for him, that means he’s unwittingly sucked into a circle of fate which ultimately pits him against a volatile criminal (John Hawkes).

I know that current popular opinion is split on Deschanel, since some people don’t buy into the whole adorkable act, but I’m a fan of just about everything she’s ever done. With New Girl taking up a good chunk of her time, »

While Frozen is the highest grossing animated film of all time, and the third highest grossing film of 2013, with a tally of $399 million domestically and over a billion dollars worldwide, Disney currently has no plans for a sequel.

Disney CEO Alan Horn, speaking at the Bloomberg Business of Entertainment Breakfast, revealed this morning that a sequel hasn't even been discussed.

Disney currently has a lot of live action films on its plate, with Alan Horn talking Star Wars: Episode VII, Marvel movies that include Avengers: Age of Ultron and Guardians of the Galaxy, and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. But no other animated films were put on the table during today's sitdown.

The Sea review 'lugubrious' adaptation of John Banville novel

19 April 2014 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Ciarán Hands is a little too insistent in his grief in this glum bereavement drama

John Banville adapts his own 2005 Man Booker-winning novel as a glum bereavement drama of the rain-on-windowpanes variety. Ciarán Hinds plays a widowed art critic who returns to the scene of a sun-kissed but ultimately painful summer of his childhood a lost world inhabited by louche bohemian adults (Natascha McElhone, Rufus Sewell, both ripe as all hell) who seem to be trapped for eternity in a Jack Vettriano painting. Hinds plays the bibulous grief a little too insistently with jowls a-quiver, but Sinéad Cusack, pithy as the dead wife, and a silky Charlotte Rampling bring some tone. Otherwise, a lugubriously literary affair.

The Sea Review

18 April 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Following on from John Jencks’ absorbing drama The Fold, comes another low-budget British production studying grief in a quite fascinating manner, as debutant Stephen Brown’s The Sea provides an insight into one man’s suffering with the loss of his wife, and how he revisits an old tragedy to help himself get over a new one. The death itself, however, is merely a catalyst for him to explore a range of other emotions, and to trigger a series of old memories.

The man in question is Max Morden (Ciarán Hinds), who decides to head back to the beachside resort where he spent his summers as a child, staying with Miss Vavasour (Charlotte Rampling), in the very same house he used to play in. His reason for returning is the death of his wife Anna (Sinéad Cusack), though while searching for serenity and peace of mind, his trip brings up a host of painful memories, »

Film Review: 'The Sea'

17 April 2014 1:56 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆John Banville is one of Ireland's greatest literary sons of recent decades. In 2005, he won the Man Booker Prize for The Sea, a tale of a man in later life consumed by both a dark secret from his youth and the recent death of his wife. Banville now adapts his own work for the big screen, directed by Stephen Brown. A heady meditation on grief and nostalgia, Banville's poetic masterpiece is transformed into a middling drama with Ciarán Hinds in the lead as art historian Max Morden. After the death of his wife, Anna (Sinéad Cusack), Max is compelled to return to the coastal village of his childhood in order to lay to rest the ghosts of the past, visiting a boarding house governed by Miss Vavasour (Charlotte Rampling).

The Sea review glum psychodrama adapted from Booker winner

16 April 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

John Banville reduces his Booker prizewinner to jumbled pound-shop Proustisms in this choppy adaptation

Reading on mobile? Click here to view The Sea trailer

More proof that writers should be kept from adapting their own work comes with Stephen Brown's glumly listing psychodrama, in which John Banville reduces his Booker prizewinner to jumbled pound-shop Proustisms. Grieving scribe Ciaran Hinds's return to the coastal getaway of his youth strands us amid oddly artificial, advert-coloured flashbacks; there, we're left waiting for some formative trauma to reveal itself, while rent-a-rake Rufus Sewell struggles to pull off an Adge Cutler-like hat-and-neckerchief combo. Hinds is a strong, wounded presence, but the laboured structure cuts insistently around him to get at a psychology mostly scrambled in translation. This Sea's just too choppy.

The Sea Review

14 April 2014 12:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Stephen Brown.

Starring: Ciaran Hinds, Charlotte Rampling, Sinead Cusack, Natascha McElhone, Rufus Sewell, Bonnie Wright.

Running Time: 86 minutes.

Certificate: 12A.

Synopsis: Max (Ciaran Hinds) returns to a seaside spot where he spent his childhood, following his wife’s (Sinead Cusack) diagnosis with cancer.

Adapted from the Man Booker Prize winning novel of the same name, Stephen Brown’s feature debut deals with the demons that haunt our past and present. Opening to an expression of abject horror, we witness Max letting the seawater engulf him and his ostensible problems before snapping to a well-dressed version of himself. In the process of receiving terrible news, Max turns to drink and begins trudging through the past. Revisiting a picturesque estate he frequented as a child, the elegant Miss Vavasour (Charlotte Rampling) helps him through his addiction, while family secrets are uncovered with less than deft precision.

As Max struggles through this difficult situation, »
