Courteney Cox: 'There's a lack of opportunities for female directors'

18 May 2014 2:56 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Courteney Cox has stated her desire for more female film directors.

The Friends star, who has helmed several episodes of her television comedy Cougar Town, will make her movie directorial debut with Just Before I Go.

When asked by Hello! magazine on the number of women directors in the film industry, Cox said: "I don't know why there's a lack [of female directors].

"There's a lack of a lot of things that women have not had the opportunity to do, but times are really changing. I think in the way we raise our children now, they're raised with such confidence and drive and so different, so hopefully that will change."

She added: "I hope there are more women directors. If women want to direct, they should be out doing it because it sure is fulfilling."

Just Before I Go stars American Pie actor Seann William Scott as a man on the verge of giving up on life. »

Tribeca: Courteney Cox On How David Fincher Helped Shape Her Directorial Debut, and Why She Won't Crowdfund

28 April 2014 9:24 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Ever since becoming a household name as Monica on the hit sitcom "Friends," Courteney Cox has been a persistent screen presence, most notably in film for her recurring role as the feisty survivor Gale Weathers in the "Scream" franchise. She currently enjoys a devoted fan base for starring in the TV comedy "Cougar Town," for which she also produces and often directs. It is no surprise, then, that Cox has now turned to filmmaking, with first the Lifetime movie "TalhotBlond" and most recently her theatrical feature debut, "Just Before I Go," which premiered last week at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. The film follows Ted (Seann William Scott) as he returns to his hometown to settle some unfinished business before committing suicide. Comedy ensues, as he develops new relationships and becomes more involved in the lives of his family -- particularly his unfiltered policeman older brother (Garret Dillahunt) and teenage nephew »

DVD Review – Revenge for Jolly! (2012)

22 April 2014 11:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Revenge for Jolly!, 2012.

Directed by Chadd Harbold.

Starring: Brian Petsos, Oscar Isaac, Gillian Jacobs, Kristen Wiig, Elijah Wood, Adam Brody, Garret Dillahunt and Ryan Phillippe.

Synopsis:

Owing some money to some bad men, Harry (Pestos) finds his dog, Jolly, dead when he can’t pay up. He sets about avenging his best friend’s death, with the help of his cousin Cecil (Isaac).

May I direct your gaze to that cast list above. Look at it. That’s an exemplary set of names – a heap of in demand dramatic, comedic and method actors. It’s Revenge For Jolly!’s main pull, especially with Oscar Isaac in the supporting role, fresh off the critical success of Inside Llewyn Davis. The film will be noticed, but you can’t expect a great deal of praise coming off that word-of-mouth. Sadly, that cast cannot inject any life into Brian Petsos’ lacklustre script.

Tribeca Film Festival: Courteney Cox on her 'out there' directorial debut 'Just Before I Go' -- Exclusive Video

21 April 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Just like film-fest siblings Sundance and Toronto, New York’s Tribeca Film Festival offers an opportunity for filmmakers and actors both new and veteran to debut their latest offerings. And while many of the films on this year’s slate are from up-and-coming talent, actress Courteney Cox is one of the big-name celebs at the festival as she heads behind the camera for her feature-film directorial debut.

Cox — whose comedic timing has been a fixture on Friends and Cougar Town — brought her sense of funny to Just Before I Go. The film features Seann William Scott (American Pie) as Ted, »

Revenge For Jolly! Blu-ray Review

13 April 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Chadd Harbold

Starring: Brian Petsos, Oscar Isaac, Elijah Wood, Kristen Wiig, Adam Brody, Ryan Phillipe, Garret Dillahunt, Kevin Corrigan, Gillian Jacobs

Running Time: 84 minutes

Certificate: 18

If blockbusters have taught us one thing it’s that the dog has to survive. Classic interpretations of the law have been found in such genre classics as Volcanoe and Independence Dance. Therefore it makes sense to build a revenge thriller around the murder of a dog, as every viewer will be able to root for the hero of the film. At least, that’s how it should be. If Revenge For Jolly! teaches us one thing, it’s that a surprisingly horrific act can result in absolutely no feeling and absolutely no involvement in a star-filled but messy and empty dark comedy. That’s a self-labelled ‘dark comedy’ by the way, as the humour seems to be non-existent.

Elementary, Ep. 2.20: “No Lack of Void” is a season high for Sherlock

12 April 2014 12:19 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Elementary, Season 2: Episode 20 – “No Lack of Void”

Written by Liz Friedman & Jeffrey Paul King

Directed by Sanaa Hamri

Airs Thursday nights at 10 on CBS

After a solid episode last week that gave Joan Watson some of her most interesting material this season, Elementary returns with a more Sherlock-centric episode that, barring his interactions with his brother and nemesis, stands out as one of this year’s highlights for the character. Viewers will be forgiven for not remembering Sherlock’s friend, Allistair (Roger Rees), from the sixth episode of the first season. It’s an unusual decision to bring a character like that back in this capacity, but it shows some strong series memory and gives Sherlock plenty to think about in the episode.

Learning that Allistair has died initially seems to not affect Sherlock that much (not that we would know anyway, since Sherlock doesn’t talk much about »

4 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Raising Hope will end its four-season run on Friday with an hourlong episode that takes the comedy back to its roots. The series was created by Greg Garcia (My Name Is Earl), who exited the 20th Century Fox TV comedy ahead of season four after inking an overall deal with rival studio CBS Television Studios. Longtime Garcia collaborator Mike Mariano was tapped showrunner of the comedy starring Martha Plimpton, Garret Dillahunt and Lucas Neff last March.
