Precocious Indie Like Sunday, Like Rain Is as Fussy as Its Title

10 March 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Unsurprising given its laughably affected title, Like Sunday, Like Rain boasts what may be the most insufferably precocious protagonist in cinema history. Reggie (Julian Shatkin), a twelve-year-old boy genius, proclaims that art is dead, casually questions adult "mores," and composes classical music that he then practices on his cello in his Upper West Side mansion's empty indoor swimming pool. Actor-turned-writer/director Frank Whaley employs studied tracking shots and a mind-numbing piano theme to chart Reggie's quasi-romantic relationship with twentysomething Eleanor (Leighton Meester), who's hired by Reggie's cold, wealthy mom (Debra Messing) to be the kid's nanny. That job involves listening to Reggie prattle on about museum paintings and his vegan diet, al »

Josh Stewart, Christopher Lloyd Starring in ‘Cold Moon’

10 February 2015 6:13 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Josh Stewart and Christopher Lloyd are starring in the supernatural revenge drama “Cold Moon” with shooting starting later this month in Louisiana, Variety has learned exclusively.

Griff Furst directs from a script he wrote with Jack Snyder, based on the 1980 novel “Cold Moon Over Babylon” by Michael McDowell (“Beetlejuice” and “The Nightmare Before Christmas”).

Furst produces under his Curmudgeon Films banner. Pixel Magic is handling special effects.

“Cold Moon” also stars Robbie Kay, Candy Clark, Frank Whaley, Rachele Brooke Smith, Laura Cayouette and Sarah Catherine.

“Cold Moon” takes place in tiny Babylon, Fla., where the granddaughter of Clark’s character is murdered by a mysterious assailant, her body sunk into the black waters of the Styx River — the river where her parents disappeared from their boat a decade earlier. Suspicion falls on a duplicitous banker and his wealthy father, played by Stewart and Lloyd.

Watch: Leighton Meester Takes Charge in Exclusive 'Like Sunday, Like Rain' Trailer

2 February 2015 6:30 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Well-known actor Frank Whaley has taken another step behind the camera: "Like Sunday, Like Rain" stars Leighton Meester as a young, seemingly lost woman who is hired by a busy, rich mother (Debra Messing) to care for her son. The son is played by newcomer Julian Shatkin, who is earning accolades for his breakout performance. Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong also co-stars as a troubled boyfriend. The film's synopsis, courtesy of Monterey Media, reads: "Surrounded by wealth and living with abundant resources in Manhattan, 12-year-old cello prodigy and all around genius Reggie, lives a solitary, bookish life lacking only frequently absent parents and friends.  Estranged from family, having slacker boyfriend troubles, and fired from her waitressing job, sometimes musician 23-year-old Eleanor needs a new place to live and a new job. Fate winds her lovely fingers around these two lives to unexpectedly place the inexperienced Eleanor as the new au pair for a skeptical. »
