This is an odd duck of a film. Part coming of age story, part murder mystery, part Douglas Sirk melodrama and all told, the pieces do not really fit together. The mystery is not much of a mystery. Performances range from scenery chewing at its finest to naturalism at its most pure, and it ends up being kind of a mess when the credits start to roll. However, it was a captivating mess. It was a puzzle where the pieces were so compelling to look at that the fact they formed a picture of something rather ugly did not matter. The process of getting there was almost rewarding enough. White Bird in a Blizzard tells the rather familiar story of Kat (Shailene Woodley), an emotionally checked out seventeen year-old in 1988. She hangs out and drinks with her friends (Gabourey Sidibe and Mark Indelicato). She wants to have more sex with her stoner, »

John Cusack has been churning out Hollywood films for over three decades, but these days the actor is frustrated by the state of the industry. “You can't make it up,” Cusack told The Guardian in an interview published Thursday. “It's a whorehouse and people go mad.” See video: John Cusack, Thomas Jane ‘Drive Hard’ in Action Comedy Trailer The 48-year-old actor co-stars with “Twilight” lead Robert Pattinson in “Maps to the Stars,” a 2014 David Cronenberg drama that skewers a celebrity-obsessed Hollywood. Cusack lauded Pattinson for how the young actor has handled his oft-publicized career, claiming today's industry is more difficult for younger actors to. »

Over the summer, before Sylvester Stallone returned to the big screen with his action star goons in The Expendables 3, we got a look at a completely different kind of ensemble movie in the form of Reach Me. The drama looked like Crash 2.0 as it focuses on a motivational book written by a mysterious man (Tom Berenger) which goes viral and quickly gains popularity, inspiring a journalist (Kevin Connolly), his editor (Sylvester Stallone), a former inmate (Kyra Sedgwick), a hip-hop mogul (Nelly), an actor (Cary Elwes) and an undercover cop (Thomas Jane) and more to re-evaluate their choices and decisions by confronting their fears. If that sounds cheesy already, wait until you see this melodramatic trailer. Watch? Here's the latest trailer for John Herzfeld's Reach Me from Deadline: Reach Me is written and directed by John Herzfeld (2 Days in the Valley, Don King: Only in America). The drama follows »

After watching the trailer for Reach Me, a crowd-funded feature from 15 Minutes helmer John Herzfeld, I can't say I see any reason to see the entire film. The story centers on the idea that a motivational book written by a mysterious man (Tom Berenger) goes viral and inspires a group of people to re-evaluate their lives. This includes people such as a journalist (Kevin Connolly), his fancy-pants editor who also likes to paint (Sylvester Stallone), a former inmate (Kyra Sedgwick), a hip-hop mogul (Nelly), an actor (Cary Elwes) and a violent undercover cop (Thomas Jane). Yeah, it packs a large cast of names you remember hearing once and includes a few more where that came from such as Terry Crews, Kelsey Grammar, Danny Aiello and even Tom Sizemorec!c! Who put this thing togetherc Any way, check out the trailer below, but don't come complaining to me if you can't finish it. »

Wow. Fifteen years after Paul Thomas Anderson's valley opus Magnolia, we get the Millenium Entertainment take on Altman-esque sprawl with Reach Me. This film looks a bit out of its mind, but maybe it's in the service of some kind of mad genius. All I know is it doesn't look boring, even though it seems to be in search of a consistent tone (it oscillates wildly between serious pathos and comic relief). I will indeed be seeing it. Hit the jump for the Reach Me trailer and poster. The film was directed by John Herzfeld and stars Sylvester Stallone, Tom Berenger, Kevin Connolly, Danny Trejo, Kyra Sedgwick, Nelly, Cary Elwes, Thomas Jane, Terry Crews, Danny Aiello, Kelsey Grammer, Lauren Cohan, Ryan Kwanten, as well as Tom Sizemore.

There’s often times when you hear the mention of a particular filmmaker, and immediately recoil, as if the actual words have caused an indelible stain on your very soul. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that’s John Herzfield, because I quite enjoyed his 1996 ensemble caper, 2 Days In The Valley. But those with a more discerning and high cultural palette may not be interested to know, what has he been up to recently?
Reach Me is his latest affair with a starry cast – but has he learned from mistakes past? It’s hard to gauge his efficacy as a filmmaker from a brief trailer, so I’m gonna give him the benefit of the doubt. The basic premise concerns a large cast of characters, who all come into contact with a motivating self-help book called Reach Me. Penned by a reclusive author (Tom Berenger), the tome »

Guys, Sylvester Stallone is ready to touch your heart....again (don't forget about "Rocky"). He's just one of many actors in the crowdfunded "Reach Me," an inspirational drama about confronting your fears and becoming a better, more positive person. We just wish this trailer were more, uh, inspiring.... The particularly ragtag cast of Tom Berenger, Kevin Connolly, Kyra Sedgwick, Nelly, Cary Elwes, Thomas Jane, Terry Crews, Danny Aiello, Kelsey Grammer, Lauren Cohan, Ryan Kwanten and Tom Sizemore (wowsers) star in this thing about a book, written by a mysterious man, that suddenly goes viral and changes the lives of a bunch of a people who have problems. So, "The Secret: The Movie"? John Herzfeld ("15 Minutes," "2 Days In The Valley") wrote and directed this, and its his first feature in seven years. "Reach Me" arrives on VOD and in limited release on November 21st. Watch below. »

Exclusive: “There are six basic fears we all suffer from, and you’re really lucky if you don’t have all six.” A motivational book written by a mysterious man goes viral and quickly gains popularity, inspiring a disparate group of people to confront their fears. Millennium Entertainment picked up writer-director John Herzfeld’s Reach Me at Cannes and plans a November 21 day-and-date release in theaters and VOD. The drama’s large ensemble cast includes Sylvester Stallone, Tom Berenger, Kevin Connolly, Kyra Sedgwick, Nelly, Cary Elwes, Thomas Jane, Terry Crews, Danny Aiello, Kelsey Grammer, Lauren Cohan, Ryan Kwanten and Tom Sizemore. (It’s an Expendables 3 reunion for Stallone, Crews and Grammer.) The pic, which was crowdfunded for finishing funds after an investor left it $250,000 short, was produced by Rebekah Chaney, Cassian Elwes, Buddy Patrick and Herzfeld.

It’s difficult not to like John Cusack. Sure, the guy has not made the best cinematic choices over the past few years, but I do not think it’s for want of trying. Cusack still manages to bring an easy-going charm to the screen, regardless of whether he’s playing a hero or a villain; and boy, he’s been playing a lot of villains recently. In a new clip from his most recent role in Drive Hard, Cusack reminds us that even as a villain, he can still be very amusing on screen.
Drive Hard features the actor in the part of a criminal who gently persuades a former race car driver turned driving instructor (Thomas Jane) to drive the getaway car in a $9 million heist job. When Jane initially refuses, as we knew he would, Cusack explains that he’s going to shoot him…and then proceeds to do just that. »

Sometimes all you need is a simple premise, executed with a sense of fun. That seems to be what the action comedy "Drive Hard," starring John Cusack and Thomas Jane, is all about. Today we have an exclusive clip to highlight the film's easy vibe. The film revolves around a former racecar driver shifting gears to a 9 to 5 job as a beginners’ driving instructor. But he soon gets into some unexpected high speed hijinks when he's kidnapped and compelled to be the getaway driver in a $9 million heist. And in the scene below, you can see the very persuasive argument Cusack makes to Jane to take the job. "Drive Hard" is now on VOD, opens in theaters on October 3rd and arrives on DVD/Blu-ray on November 11th. »

Thomas Roach with five Marvel characters who should get their own Netflix TV series….
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is expanding fast with not just films being released each year but now shows on television. Next year we are set for two movies – Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man – but also we will be getting our first Marvel Netflix show, Daredevil. Marvel announced last year that it had made a deal with Netflix to produce four series which would all lead to a Defenders miniseries. So far Daredevil is the only one in production, with actor Charlie Cox playing the title role. We are also set to get Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones series on Netflix over the next few years.
As well as the Netflix shows, we are set to have an Agent Carter TV series on ABC, as well as the continuing series Agents of S.H. »
- Thomas Roach
The deal includes a proceed-to-production commitment.
Stacy Title (“The Last Supper”) will direct from a script adapted by Jonathan Penner from the short story “The Bridge to Body Island” by Robert Damon Schneck, chronicling the harrowing events experienced by three Wisconsin college students in the early 1990s.
Schneck’s story appeared in the anthology “The President’s Vampire: Strange-but-True Tales of the United States of America.”
TWC said the logline and plot details are currently being kept under wraps.

From rock operas to Wes Craven to Dazzler, here's some Marvel movies that never quite made it...
Recently, we looked at the DC movies that never got the greenlight. We saw hordes of Superman movies which didn’t make it to screen, along with Batman film ideas and whole hosts of other DC heroes whose movies plummeted out of production (You can read that piece here).
On the other side of the superhero cinema fence, we have the seemingly all-encompassing, game-changing Marvel Cinematic Universe at the height of its powers, the X-Men franchise in rude health and the still-fresh memory of Spider-Man’s hasty reboot. You could be forgiven for thinking that not as many Marvel movies have struggled to get made as their DC counterparts.
However, having delved once more into the ancient scrolls of cinema history (still better known as extensive Googling), we can confirm there’s plenty »
There’s only one director who can claim to have introduced the world to Nicole Kidman (in 1983’s BMX Bandits) and directed two Leprechaun films (1995’s Leprechaun 3 and 1997’s Leprechaun 4: In Space). That director’s name? Brian Trenchard-Smith.
The latest film from the prolific auteur and Tarantino favorite is the action-comedy Drive Hard, which stars John Cusack as a criminal who robs a bank run by criminals and Thomas Jane as an ex-race car driver he coerces into becoming his reluctant wheelman. How did the project come about? “Well, I’ve never met a green light I didn’t like, »
