When Oscar-winner Adrien Brody finally found his dream home, it was in the form of a run-down castle in upstate New York. Despite the dilapidated appearance, Brody set out to restore the enchantment that he saw the structure held. He decided to team up with filmmaker Kevin Ford to document the seven-year process, and the result is Stone Barn Castle.
Brody was at SXSW for the premiere of the film, and afterwards we had a chance to sit down with him. We discussed his motivation for this documentary, what he got from the process, how life changes post-Oscar, and much more. Check out the full interview below!
Boyhood got a lot of hype for taking 12 years, you took what? Seven?
Are you expecting the same kind of hype?
Brody: There’s no fictional element unfortunately. There is no fiction here. Seven years of long hard truth of my own journey I guess. »

Landing between SXSW and the Cannes Film Festival, it would be easy to overlook the Tribeca Film Festival, but that would be a mistake. The festival has developed a reputation for being the place where hidden gems are discovered, and where movies that weren't on the radar before, suddenly fly into view. One that could gain some attention is the supernatural "Backtrack," and today we have an exclusive clip from the film. Written and directed by Michael Petroni ("Till Human Voices Wake Us"), and starring Adrien Brody and Sam Neill, the story follows psychologist Peter Bower, whose life is thrown into turmoil when he discovers that the patients he has been seeing are ghosts, which leads to uncovering a terrifying secret from his past. In this exclusive clip, Peter witnesses first hand the fear that grips his clients and is appropriately spooked by what he sees. "Backtrack" will have its »

Legions of dedicated Hannibal fans have suffered an agonizing wait since the show’s season 2 finale. A bloody, savage closer, it hinted at a brand new era for the series which is set to debut its third season in a little over two months.
From the small spatter of details revealed via casting announcements and teaser posters, it’s been fun assembling a rough image of what to expect from season 3. There’s been a time-hop tease, a nudge toward territory previously broached in the movie adaptations, and the biggest drop of all from series creator Bryan Fuller, who jokingly referenced the “second biggest” character in the entire Hanni-verse making an appearance.
Fuller’s propensity for dishing the dirt on his creation continued last night over on Twitter. In a series of hint-heavy Tweets, he revealed a wealth of new info on the show’s forthcoming season 3.
On the basis of the first teaser poster, »

Adrien's Gf got real uncomfortable so he stepped up and confronted them. There was pushing and shoving, but eventually hotel security calmed the situation down. »

Hollywood headed down south for the 2015 SXSW film, interactive and music festival in Austin, Texas, for the annual 10-day event, which wraps up on March 22.
“No one wants to go up those flights of stairs over and over and over again. Once you’re up, you kind of just stay here,” star Shane West joked about the jam-packed rooftop soireé, which was complete with aerialists (a.k.a. levitating enchantresses) and apothecaries — better known as multiple bars — as he sipped on a cocktail.
“It’s funky-town,” new cast member Lucy Lawless told Variety, hours after arriving at SXSW with her co-stars (the entire “Salem” cast took a six-hour road trip together from their Shreveport, La., set to Austin, thanks to their flights being canceled at the last minute). “[Austin] has got so much character. »

Hollywood headed down south for the 2015 SXSW film, interactive and music festival in Austin, Texas, for the annual ten day event, which wraps up on March 22.
SXSW kicked off on Friday the 13th, very fittingly with a haunted house party, hosted by Wgn America’s supernatural thriller “Salem.”

In 2007, Adrien Brody went out to the woods in Upstate New York to find himself— and a partly burned stone barn. Having just come out of filming Rian Johnson's whimsical caper comedy "The Brothers Bloom," and feeling his career adrift, the Oscar winner bought this enchanting, decaying early 20th-century structure, built by a Roman, which has been used as a nightclub, a museum and an amusement park. For seven years, Brody took on the ambitious and soul-churning process of restoring and turning it into what it now is: "Stone Barn Castle," Brody's home away from the noisy energy of acting and of New York City, and the title of the SXSW premiere doc he made with filmmaker Kevin Ford. Cinematographer/editor turned director Ford, whom Brody met when he was shooting behind the scenes on "Brothers Bloom," documents this herculean, yeoman's effort with gentle artistry, making room for the »

Houdini and Doyle is a ten-part supernatural crime drama inspired by the pair's real-life friendship, reports Deadline.
ITV has picked up the series in the UK, while Fox will air episodes in the Us, and Shaw Media will handle the show in Canada.
Illusionist Houdini and Sherlock Holmes writer Doyle found friendship via their mutual interest in spiritualism, although they had a bitter public fall-out when Doyle refused to believe that Houdini's stunts were simply illusions.
The series will see the duo work together on supernaturally-tinged crimes, despite their differences.
House creator David Shore is executive producer on the project alongside his former colleague David Hoselton, who will serve as writer. David Titcher (The Librarians) is also writing Houdini and Doyle.
The friendship between the two was »

South by Southwest starts tomorrow, Friday, March 13, and my pores are beaming with excitement, though that could just be a medical condition. I am looking at a very packed schedule of films over the nine day festival, with a total of 38 in all (36 reviews to write). So, I basically will be drowning in movies. But, then again, I can't complain too much, as I wouldn't have it any other way. You can take a look at what I hope my schedule ends up being below. Obviously, things could change as the festival progresses, with some titles getting more buzz than others and overtaking current films and so forth. But, I think, this is how I will be spending my SXSW. I will be updating this post throughout the festival with schedule changes and links to my reviews, so maybe bookmark this page if you're interested. I hope you enjoy my coverage, »

Things are looking nowhere near as competitive in this category as they were last year, where Billy Bob Thornton, Mark Ruffalo and Benedict Cumberbatch were among those battling it out for the Emmy. With "Fargo" (and "True Detective," the next season of which will be eligible here) taking an eligibility period off, it's a pretty wide open race. Read More: 'True Detective' Season 2: Everything We Know Right Now (Almost) Veteran actors Richard Jenkins (who has somehow never received an Emmy nomination) and Bill Paxton seem like the arguable frontrunners for "Olive Kitteridge" and "Texas Rising," respectively, though definitely don't count out Adrien Brody ("Houdini"), Ricky Gervais ("Derek: The Final Chapter"), Damian Lewis ("Wolf Hall"), Mark Rylance ("Wolf Hall"), Timothy Hutton ("American Crime") and even Kiefer Sutherland ("24: Live Another Day"), all of whom would probably »

One of the more intriguing documentaries scheduled to premiere at SXSW is Stone Barn Castle, which depicts Academy Award-winner Adrien Brody’s restoration of a damaged stoned barn in upstate New York — “reminiscent of a European castle” — over the course of a seven-year period. As the short clip above details, the documentary appears to be as much about community, physical work and personal achievement as it is about design. The official blurb is below: In 2007, Academy Award winning actor Adrien Brody fell in love with a partially burned stone barn, reminiscent of an old European castle, hidden in […] »
