The pair will take the title roles in Gary Michael Schultz's crime drama.
The Unified Pictures movie centres around the romance between down-on-their-luck rebels Roxxy (Kravitz) and Vincent (Hirsch).
Their love is threatened when the violence of their past catches up with them.
Hirsch was most recently seen in the Bonnie and Clyde television miniseries.
Gary Michael Schultz will direct from his own screenplay. Shooting will start in Louisiana in December.
International sales are being handled by Fortitude International, which will present the project to buyers at the upcoming Afm. Wme represents the film’s domestic distribution rights.
The film follows a down-on-their-luck pair of rebels who fall in love and fall apart when their violent pasts catch up with them. “’Vincent-n-Roxxy’ is a very personal story for me and, at its core, it is a story about love, family and the unrelenting presence of violence,” said Schultz.

NBC is bringing in the holiday spirit with the stop-motion hourlong animated special Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas, set to air Tuesday, Dec. 16 at 8 p.m. Based on the popular film Elf and the hit Broadway show Elf: The Musical, the special will star four-time Emmy Award winner Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory) as Buddy.
Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas combines the humor and spirit of both the beloved 2003 holiday film, which drew glowing reviews and earned $173 million at the domestic box office, and the hit Broadway production. The special is an all-new retelling of Buddy's delightfully absurd yet heartwarming story and blends the look and feel of the stop-motion animated Christmas specials of the past with the sharp sensibility of the modern-day classic holiday film.
Santa narrates the story of Buddy's travels to New York City to meet the father he never knew he had. Along the »
It’s up in the air whether New Girl will live to see another season, but considering it’s the best comedy on Fox by a mile, I would hope they’d recognize that fact and give it another pick-up. The star of the show, Zooey Deschanel, has moved from film to TV for the part, and it’s done wonders for her career. Deschanel is famous for her bangs and her eyes, in addition to her acting talent, and that got me thinking about a ridiculous photoshop opportunity, as I’m always on the hunt for new experiments. Today’s experiment? An eye transplant, taking Deschanel’s iconic peepers and seeing how well they’d fit on a number of other famous TV actresses currently starring on the most popular shows on television. Ever wonder why Deschanel’s eyes would look like if they showed up in Castle, The Walking Dead »
Tea Leoni is a "diva" on the set of "Madam Secretary," claims Star in yet another false story from the same outlet that fabricated similar rumors about Zooey Deschanel, Shailene Woodley, Lucy Hale, and virtually every other perfectly nice actress working in Hollywood. According to the magazine, Leoni's "ego needs some checks and balances." A so-called "set source" tells Star, "Tea told producers that she wants final approval over her costars -- she doesn't want anyone who's a bigger name on the show. She has a fear of being outshone or outperformed." »

The World Series gets underway tonight, and we know which celebrities will be watching.
The 2014 World Series between the Kansas City Royals and the San Francisco Giants finally kicks off Tuesday night.
The players are excited.
The fans are ecstatic.
The team mascots Sluggerrr and Lou Seal are definitely ready!
When it comes to October baseball, it doesn’t get any better than this. Everyone is ready, including the celebrities who just happen to be long time fans of either the Giants and the Royals.
Rooting for the Royals will be longtime fans Paul Rudd, Jason Sudeikis, and Rob Riggle, along with Anchorman star David Koechner and Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet (who is also a big Los Angeles Dodgers fan). But it’s not just the team that means so much to these five guys, it’s Kansas City as well.
If you've ever wanted to dress like a super chic version of your favorite Saturday Night Live character, Saks Fifth Avenue has you covered. Especially if your favorite SNL character is Gilly. The department store's "Live From New York" collection, which was guided by SNL's costume designer Tom Broecker, features items from a variety of high-end designers that were inspired by classic SNL sketches. In some cases, the connections to SNL are tenuous at best. (Hello, Coneheads beanie.) In others, they're obvious—which is good news for those who can spend upwards of $1,000 to look vaguely like Mary Katherine Gallagher. »

We all know and love Zooey Deschanel as Jessica Day on New Girl right now, and in my opinion, it’s one of the best comedies currently on the air. Or at least one that for whatever reason, makes me laugh out loud consistently. Deschanel is much of the reason for that, though credit is more than due to her excellent supporting cast as well. It’s not easy to be the lead woman in a comedy almost entirely populated by males (other than the rare Cece appearance), but she does a fine job of it. And yet, when it was announced Deschanel would be leading her own show, it was something of a surprise. Granted this was back in 2011 when the first migration of film-to-tv actor was just starting to emerge, but most of us had remembered Deschanel largely for her movie roles, outside of brief guest spots on shows like… »
Langella will play the role of Gabriel, Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth’s (Keri Russell) former Kgb handler who comes out of retirement to take back responsibility for overseeing the two Kgb operatives from their previous handler, Claudia (Margo Martindale).
“We’ve been huge fans of Frank’s work for a long time, and it’s been such a pleasure getting to know Frank himself in the beginning stages of working together on the character of Gabriel,” said executive producers Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields in a statement. “We look forward to a great season together, and to what we’re sure will be a phenomenal creative collaboration.”
Langella is repped by Paradigm, and is set to appear in three films slated for release in 2015: the romance “5 to »

Last season, New Girl dropped in the ratings -- but not nearly as much as many other Fox shows. Will this quirky sitcom remain a bright spot on the network's schedule. Is it essentially guaranteed a fifth season renewal (because of syndication profits) or could it actually be cancelled? Stay tuned.
New Girl revolves around free-spirited educator Jess (Zooey Deschanel), her four single male friends (Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris, and Damon Wayans Jr.), and her childhood best friend who's now a model (Hannah Simone).
The higher a show's ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- typically the following morning, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.
10/15 update: You can see the rest of the latest night's ratings. »
Julian Morris, Once Upon a Time's Prince Charming Phillip, made his entrance on Tuesday's New Girl. And Charming it was indeed. As Ryan Geauxinue (cheekily pronounced Goes-in-you), the "distractingly handsome" Brit science teacher brought in to replace a newly promoted Jess (Zooey Deschanel), he will test Jess's professionalism as a Vice Principal—not to mention her resolve as a woman with functioning eyes and ears—as the colleagues grow closer over the next several episodes. Which isn't to say Jess and Ryan got off to a smooth smart. Sure, there was a brief, work-inappropriate shoulder rub in Morris's first episode, »

When the teacher becomes the student... As Jess (Zooey Deschanel) continues to adjust to the power and responsibility that comes with being a Vice Principal, she finds herself tasked with enforcing the school's non-fraternization policies. The catch? Jess engages in some borderline inappropriate hands-on learning with the school's "distractingly handsome" new teacher (new recurring star Once Upon a Time's Julian Morris) during a staff training session. In an exclusive sneak preview of New Girl's latest episode, find out how Jess feels the tingling in her stomach and tries to "Shut it down." New Girl airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. »

A quick review of last night's "New Girl" coming up just as soon as I shoot candy into a baby.. Last week's episode and "Micro" have me wondering if the "New Girl" writers room is having a contest to see who can take the most tired and hacky sitcom plots and find a way to fit it into this show's weird sensibility. And weirdly, it's working. Schmidt and Coach being pranked into becoming male models is perhaps the dumbest story the show has ever told — and also violates the notion that all of Winston's pranks(*) become needlessly violent in a hurry — while the only vaguely new element of the title story was the show's ability to be blunt about Matt's micro-penis (there have been many variations of the larger dilemma, like Liz Lemon trying to dump Wayne Brady because he was boring, not because he was black). Yet before both »

In the wake of their cruise ship breakup during the season 3 finale, it's been inevitable that Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) would eventually find love—or at least lust—back on land, and the latest episode shows our New Girl closer to bagging a new man than ever before. After Jess' pitiful attempt at a wedding hookup and Nick's not-so-smooth flirting over sponge hatred (sex doesn't count if we didn't see it, show!), Jess finds an incredibly handsome new prospect played by The Hunger Games: Catching Fire star Alan Ritchson. But, as an episode called "Micro" suggests, there's »

"Men always say that as the defining compliment, don’t they? She’s a cool girl. Being the Cool Girl means I am a hot, brilliant, funny woman who adores football, poker, dirty jokes, and burping, who plays video games, drinks cheap beer, loves threesomes and anal sex, and jams hot dogs and hamburgers into her mouth like she’s hosting the world’s biggest culinary gang bang while somehow maintaining a size 2, because Cool Girls are above all hot. Hot and understanding. Cool Girls never get angry; they only smile in a chagrined, loving manner and let their men do whatever they want. »

A to Z lays out its hand in the opening minutes of the pilot. Narrator Katey Sagal explains that lead characters Andrew and Zelda "will date for 8 months, 3 weeks, 5 days, and 1 hour. This television program is the comprehensive account of their relationship, from A to Z." The show has an endgame in mind from the start and seems overly aware of its existence as a romantic comedy—those frequent (500) Days of Summer comparisons in recent months are more than apt. While the show can't quite live up to its predecessors in the initial outing, the first episode, "A is for Acquaintances, »

School is back in session for a lot of folks, so we've got academia on the brain, particularly its role in movies and TV. Some of our favorite films and TV series feature inspirational teachers, but right now we're highlighting those teachers who are more than just good at educating - they also look good doing it. With their horn-rimmed glasses and elbow patches, teachers are some of the big and small screens' sexiest characters. From Ryan Gosling to Zooey Deschanel, here are the actors who've played teachers and used blackboards and classrooms to highlight their hotness. »
Jessica Biel showed off her body in a bikini during a day at the beach with her family in Maui last week. The actress wore a loose tank top and pants on the sand before wading in the ocean in a black two-piece. We last saw Jessica in a bikini during her birthday getaway in Barbados back in March, and it seems as though her beach body still has people talking. Jessica's recent vacation come on the heels of her big return to TV; she appeared alongside Zooey Deschanel in the season four premiere of New Girl earlier this month, marking the first time she's hit the small screen since starring on 7th Heaven in the '90s - coincidentally, Jessica reunited with her former costars for a sweet family-style dinner that same week, and her onscreen sister Beverley Mitchell shared a cute photo via Twitter. While Jessica is hitting the beach in Hawaii, »
