6 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s never easy to cast young actors, but when John Carney found Ferdia Walsh-Peelo and Lucy Boynton to play Conor Lalor and Raphina in his new film “Sing Street,” he struck gold. Set in inner-city Dublin in 1985, the film follows Conor as he enters Synge Street CBS, a free state school, after his parents can no longer afford to pay for his private school education. While Conor encounters bullies and pedophiles in the institution, he catches the eye of Raphina, a beautiful girl who sits across the street. In order to impress her, he tells her that he has a band and needs a model for a music video. Soon, Conor starts a band called Sing Street with other friends and the group starts writing and recording songs, all the while Conor and Raphina start to fall in love and contemplating leaving Ireland for better pastures.

21 July 2016 12:07 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

In the second season of Sara and Erin Foster's VH1 comedy series Barely Famous, we witness two entitled, beautiful women – named Sara and Erin – hurl themselves through Los Angeles with little care for the pain and confusion they cause others. It's a faux reality show that takes all the bad and balls it up to throw it back in your face. 

So what prompted the daughters of the multi–Grammy-winning music producer David Foster – who has worked with everyone from Chicago and Alice Cooper to Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston »

Zach Braff to direct Black List comedy Bump

3 July 2016 5:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having recently wrapped production on Going in Style, Zach Braff has wasted little time in securing his next directing gig, with Deadline reporting that the former Scrubs star is teaming up with Working Title to helm Bump, which is based on the Black List script by Ori Guendelman and Rob McClelland.

The black comedy “tells the story of the single most important night in Thomas’ life, where one mistake sets into motion a series of absurd events that threaten to unravel the clichéd life he’s worked so hard to build. This wild ride calls into question the balance between ambition and morality and the dubious decisions made in pursuit of the American Dream.”

Going in Style is set to hit cinemas on April 7th 2017, while Braff will next been seen on screen in James Franco’s upcoming John Steinbeck adaptation In Dubious Battle, which is expected to arrive later this year. »

Zach Braff to Direct Black List Black Comedy ‘Bump’

1 July 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

As a director, Zach Braff has proven divisive. His first film Garden State opened to a warm reception, and its Shins-heavy soundtrack was an instant hit — but its quirky hipster vibe has not aged well, and these days it’s easier to find movie geeks who’ll claim they’ve hated it all along than ones who’ll proudly declare […]

Zach Braff To Direct Black List Comedy ‘Bump’

1 July 2016 9:56 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Certain pockets of the internet have a deep well of antipathy toward Zach Braff that I don’t quite understand. Sure, his crowdfunding campaign for “Wish I Was Here” was misguided at best, but no one was forced to hand over their money. And while some might say his particular strain of indie filmmaking is detestable, […]

‘Barely Famous’ Return Marks Victory for Producer’s Brand of Celebrity Comedy

28 June 2016 6:09 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The return of “Barely Famous” on VH1 Wednesday night is a victory for producer Jason Carbone.

Carbone, a reality TV vet who leads the Good Clean Fun production banner, had the idea for a hybrid reality-comedy series skewering the hypocrisy of being a celebrity in Hollywood. In Erin and Sara Foster, daughters of A-list tunesmith David Foster, he found the perfect leading ladies. The pair grew up in the world of red carpets, film sets and velvet ropes but were not boldface names in their own right.

However, over the course of its six-episode freshman season in March and April 2015, viewership of “Barely Famous” never rose above 150,000.

But the show struck a nerve in Hollywood for gently poking fun at the conventions and entitlements of the Beautiful People. The Foster sisters gained notice for their comedic chops on the show that is partly scripted and partly the two going about their regular business in Beverly Hills and »

Hollywood’s UK Community Debates Brexit: Should They Stay Or Should They Go?

21 June 2016 4:51 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Britain doesn’t have to choose between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, but our friends across the pond are nevertheless faced with a hugely significant political decision of their own. Thursday’s vote on Brexit — the colloquial name given to the United Kingdom’s upcoming vote on whether or not to remain in the European Union — is a divisive issue, of course, with the husband of slain MP Jo Cox saying that the 41-year-old politician was murdered because of her strong political beliefs. The Economist currently tracks the polls at 44 percent in favor of remaining (or “bremaining”), 43 percent hoping to leave (“brexit”) and 11 percent undecided.

As born and bred Angelenos raised amidst the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, sisters Sara and Erin Foster are uniquely qualified to playfully take on Tinseltown. On Barely Famous, their satirical comedy series which returns for a second season on June 29, Sara and Erin play sisters who "are on the outside of Hollywood," says Sara, 35. "All they want is to be on the inside, but they're just not." Naturally, hilarity ensues as the fictional sisters try and fail to make a name for themselves in the entertainment industry, often butting heads with celebrities (real life pals of Sara and Erin »

'Super Troopers 2' Poster Revealed: Cult Hit Sequel Moves Forward

14 May 2016 9:33 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"Super Troopers" first premiered at Sundance in early 2001, and for the last 15 years has been building its cult-movie bona fides as vocal fans endlessly quoted their favorite lines and demanded a sequel. That wish became a reality last year, when Broken Lizard launched a highly successful Indiegogo campaign to fund the next installment — asking for $2 million, the production ended up making more than twice that. Now, per co-writer/director/star Jay Chandrasekhar's Twitter, the film has its first official poster. Read More: 'Super Troopers 2' Crowdfunding Campaign Zooms Past Zach Braff The original film, released theatrically by Fox Searchlight in February of 2002, concerns five highly unprofessional state troopers in Vermont whose antics near the Canadian border inspire much laughter.
