Exclusive Interview With Before I Disappear Actor/Director Shawn Christensen

19 July 2016 5:07 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

One in a great while, you come across a film that not only entertains you, but one that really resonates with you on a very personal level. When these films come along, it’s important as cinephiles and also just as admirers of personal storytelling, to embrace those films and champion them as much as you can. Last year, while going through what could be easily described as a hellish time in my life, I was skimming through Netflix and I was caught by the title Before I Disappear. Not knowing that it was spawned from the Oscar-winning short film Curfew, or that it was written/directed and starred Shawn Christensen, the vocalist for a band I was quite fond of for quite some time (Stellastarr*), I watched it. Experiencing the film was like those special experiences I wrote about above, ones that touch your soul in very profound ways. »

Kyle Chandler Is the Supple Spine of ‘Bloodline’ (Emmy Video)

27 June 2016 12:21 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Bloodline” Season 2, now streaming on Netflix, is a must-see. And much of the credit goes to its star, Kyle Chandler.

From “Damages” creators Todd and Glenn Kessler and Daniel Zelman, the feverish Florida neo-noir is a dysfunctional family drama that reveals how and why three siblings would turn on their oldest brother (Ben Mendelsohn). The writers were fascinated by the roles taken on by each member of a family, from the black sheep to the fixer. When volatile wild card Danny Rayburn re-enters the scene, he disrupts the Rayburn family, led by its hotelier and matriarch (Sissy Spacek) and local detective John Rayburn (Chandler). (Mendelsohn and Chandler both scored acting Emmy nominations for Season 1.)

In Season 2, John and his two agitated siblings (Linda Cardellini and Norbert Leo Butz) must deal with the aftermath of Danny’s murder. Danny haunts them in more ways than one, not only messing with their heads, »

Logan Lerman and Elle Fanning to Star in Shawn Christensen’s ‘Sidney Hall’ (Exclusive)

21 April 2016 12:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Logan Lerman, Elle Fanning, Michelle Monaghan, Kyle Chandler and Nathan Lane are set to star in Shawn Christensen’s indie drama “Sidney Hall.”

Christensen is on board to direct from a script he co-wrote with Jason Dolan. “Like Crazy” producer Jonathan Schwartz is on board to produce through his Super Crispy Entertainment banner with Christensen and Lerman exec producing.

Story follows three stages in the life of the title character, who writes the book of his generation before disappearing without a trace. The film begins production next week in New York City.

Sources say almost every young actor met with Christensen and Schwartz for the part after the script hit the market, but Lerman was particularly believable at playing all three stages of Hall’s life — he plays a 19, 24 and 30 year old in various parts of the film.

Fanning, who recently turned 18, has already gained recognition in box office successes like “Super 8” and “Maleficent. »
