Film News Roundup: Louis Gossett Jr. Replaces James Earl Jones on ‘Foster Boy’ Drama
In today’s film news roundup, Louis Gossett Jr. replaces James Earl Jones in “Foster Boy,” David Wojnarowicz is the subject of a documentary and “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” gets a Norwegian director.

Replacement

Louis Gossett Jr. is replacing James Earl Jones as a judge in the reality-inspired feature film “Foster Boy,” currently in production.

Jones departed due to a competing commitment. Matthew Modine and newcomer Shane Paul McGhie star in “Foster Boy,” a legal drama about a high-powered litigator who takes on the case of a disadvantaged African-American young man. They uncover the abuses of the for-profit foster care system.

Other cast members include Julie Benz, Amy Brenneman, Greg Germann, Evan Handler, Jordan Belfi, Lex Scott Davis and Krystian Lyttle.

The script is written by attorney-turned-screenwriter Jay Paul Deratany, based on his experiences as a litigator in Chicago. “Foster Boy,” which is shooting in Los Angeles, is directed by Youssef Delara.

Matthew Modine and James Earl Jones join Foster Boy

Variety is reporting that Matthew Modine (Stranger Things), James Earl Jones (The Lion King) and newcomer Shane Paul McGhie are set to star in the indie drama Foster Boy, which is being directed by Youssef Delara (The Bounce Back) from a script by attorney-turned-screenwriter Jay Paul Deratany.

Foster Boy is based on Deratany’s own experiences as a litigator in Chicago, and sees Modine playing a character at the center of a trial revolving around a for-profit corporation, contracted by the state to provide foster children safe homes, that places a known sex offender into a foster home with other clients — with catastrophic results.

“There are an estimated 400,000 children in foster care in America,” said Deratany. “They are basically unrepresented, with few ways to shape their destinies. Why? One simple reason: they are children. They have no money and they have no voice. It’s not that they are bad kids.

Berlin: Market Forces Reshape Indie Biz — Again

Berlin: Market Forces Reshape Indie Biz — Again
The 2016 European Film Market isn’t without star power. Richard Gere toplines the Protagonist Pictures-sold psychological drama “The Dinner,” from Oren Moverman; Adam Driver (Rylo Ken to “Star Wars” fans) stars in Jim Jarmusch comedy “Paterson” from K5 Intl.; James McAvoy and Alicia Vikander grace Wim Wender’s “Submergence,” from Embankment.

But as indie film execs are getting ready for the market, which runs concurrently with the Berlin Intl. Film Festival from Feb. 11 to 21, nobody expects to see a bonanza of English-language star-laden vehicles for sale.

“There likely won’t be a crop of bigger new movies,” says Im Global’s Stuart Ford. “There will be a few. But I don’t think we’ll see a sudden boom.”

Blame the market forces within the international indie biz. In 2012, multiple sales companies launched as institutional investors and high-net-worth individuals moved into independent film finance — and needed sales agents to match equity with pre-sales.

Hayden Christensen And Nicolas Cage Soldier ‘Outcast’ To A Limited Weekend Bow: Specialty Preview

Hayden Christensen And Nicolas Cage Soldier ‘Outcast’ To A Limited Weekend Bow: Specialty Preview
The weekend is chalk full of new Specialty releases, though most will likely be low performers in terms of dollars at the box office. Entertainment One is opening Nicolas Cage and Hayden Christensen starrer Outcast with limited runs and will likely find tepid returns at the theatrical box office, though it may shine in the digital/on-demand space where it will also bow this weekend. Documentary Ballet 422 (Magnolia Pictures), meanwhile, has had solid buzz heading into the weekend and should score well in its niche market. Monterey Media is hoping to have traction with stars Wes Bentley, Vincent Piazza and Amber Tamblyn as it opens 3 Nights In The Desert in theaters and on-demand, while Freestyle Releasing is targeting the rom-com crowd for its debut, One Small Hitch. Other Specialty openers this weekend include First Run Features’ doc The Other Man: F.W. de Klerk And The End Of Apartheid In South Africa,

Exclusive: Clip From Thriller 'Enter The Dangerous Mind' Starring Nikki Reed & Jake Hoffman

Fusing the world of Edm, psychological thriller, and romance might not seem like an obvious choice, but that's the ambitious blend put together by directors Youssef Delara and Victor Teran in "Enter The Dangerous Mind." Today we have an exclusive clip from the upcoming film. Starring Jake Hoffman, Nikki Reed, Thomas Dekker, Jason Priestly, Scott Bakula, and Gina Rodriguez, the story follows a slightly unhinged Edm musician, weighed down a trouble past and voices in his head, who finds possible hope for the future when he strikes up a relationship with a social worker. But soon, he becomes obsessed by his new beau and violence surfaces. However, in the clip below, you can see the more innocent, early stages of the romance, before it goes down a dark path. "Enter The Dangerous Mind" opens on February 6th in theaters and on iTunes.

Repetitive Thriller Enter the Dangerous Mind Has Too Many Rote Beats Per Minute

Repetitive Thriller Enter the Dangerous Mind Has Too Many Rote Beats Per Minute
As indicated by its title's weak quasi-pun, Enter the Dangerous Mind riffs on the ubiquitous musical form Edm (a/k/a electronic dance music) as popularized by the likes of Skrillex and David Guetta. Yet it quickly becomes clear that the genre is being used by co-directors Youssef Delara and Victor Teran as little more than a trendy hook upon which to hang a narratively repetitive thriller suffused with movie-psycho clichés. A wild-eyed yet nondescript Jake Hoffman (Dustin's son) stars as Jim, a twitchy, reclusive beatmaker saddled with a Tyler Durden–esque imaginary buddy (Thomas Dekker) who pumps crassly misogynist invective into his ear. Jim briefly finds succor in a potential relationship with an inexplicably supportive social-work student (Nikki Reed), b...

LatinoBuzz: Actress Gina Rodriguez On Her New Show 'Jane the Virgin'

Back in 2012, a small indie film called "Filly Brown" premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Instantly it was a breakout hit. In Park City, on the internet, in trade publications, and on blogs people could not stop talking about the talented newcomer Gina Rodriguez. Her dazzling performance in "Filly Brown" as a tough, young rapper from East Los Angeles put her and the film, directed by Youssef Delara and Michael D. Olmos, on the map.

Rodriguez, who is Puerto Rican, was immediately courted by film studios and TV networks and soon after the fest signed a holding deal with ABC. She was presented various roles but turned them down. While promoting her new show Jane the Virgin during the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills this past weekend she was asked about her choice of roles. Her responses, in addition to being incisive and incredibly intelligent, made us want to be her Bff. Keep an eye on this talented Latina, very big things are to come.

On why she turned down Devious Maids

When I was presented with Devious Maids after Sundance, after I did a film at Sundance and I had an ABC holding deal, I found it limiting that that was the one that was available to me. I found it limiting for the stories that Latinos have. For the stories that Americans have, I feel like there’s a perception that people have about Latinos in America specifically — somebody growing up in Chicago, English being my first language, Spanish being my second — that we are perceived a very certain way.

On the perception of Latinos in America

Our stories have been told, and they’re not unmoralistic [sic], you know, being a maid is fantastic. You know, I have many family members that have fed many of their families on doing that job, but there are other stories that need to be told. And I think that the media is a venue and an avenue to educate and teach our next generation. And, sadly, right now the perception they have of Latinos in America are very specific to maid, landscape, pregnant teen.

On why she became an actor

I didn’t become an artist to be a millionaire. I didn’t become an actor to wear Louis Vuitton. I have to give this dress back when we’re done. I became an actor to change the way I grew up. The way I grew up, I never saw myself on screen.

On how she chooses her roles

So every role that I’ve chosen has been ones that I think are going to push forward the idea of my culture, of women, of beauty, my idea of liberating young girls, of feeling that they have to look at a specific beauty type. And I wasn’t going to let my introduction to the world be one of a story that I think has been told many times

On whey she said yes to Jane the Virgin

I wanted it to be a story that was going to liberate young girls and say, ‘Wow, there we are too, and we’re the doctors, and we’re the teachers, and we’re the writers, and we’re the lawyers, and I can do that too. And I don’t have to be a perfect size zero. I can be a perfect size me.’ And that’s what I live. So Jane, I waited for her patiently. And now she’s here. And thank you for being here with us. Because this is a dream come true to me.

Jane the Virgin premieres this fall on the CW. Check out the trailer here.

Latest Celebrity Kickstarter Film Fumble: Shemar Moore

Latest Celebrity Kickstarter Film Fumble: Shemar Moore
In the latest display of Kickstarter’s potential pitfalls for stars, “Criminal Minds” actor Shemar Moore’s $1.5 million campaign to produce the film “The Bounce Back” has collected less than $75,000 from just 384 backers in its first four days.

The news comes two weeks after Melissa Joan Hart cancelled a $2 million campaign for the rom-com “Darci’s Walk of Shame” one month into its 45-day run after earning only $51,605 from 315 backers.

The low “Bounce” and “Shame” tallies follow two of Kickstarter’s biggest campaigns—for Rob Thomas’ Warners-distribbed “Veronica Mars” (earning $5.7 million on its $2 million goal) and Zach Braff’s “Wish I Was Here” (earning $3.1 million on its $2 million goal)—which created an online backlash questioning why fans should fund millionaires’ passion projects.

Moore spent a decade on “The Young and the Restless” and eight seasons on the CBS’ “Minds,” garnering more than 265,000 Twitter followers and nearly a million “Likes” on his Facebook page.

Listen: Exclusive Song From Music World Drama 'Filly Brown'

Last month, we brought you an exclusive dubstep track from the SXSW thriller "Snap." Co-directed by Youssef Delara, the film featured msuic by longtime industry veteran and musician Reza Safinia, but it wasn't the first time they worked together. They had previously collaborated on "Filly Brown," which premiered at Sundance in 2012. And with that picture now out in theaters, we have another exclusive track to share with you.  Starring Gina Rodriguez -- who also sings on the tune along with Diamonique -- the film follows young Latina rap star who is offered a shot at the big time, but has to choose between compromising her artistic ideals and abandoning her friends or making her lifelong dream come true. This remix of "This Is My Life" adds some speaker shaking bass drops, adding to a whole other dimension to what had originally been a more straightforward hip hop song. "Reza drew
