19 November 2014 9:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

After the Doc NYC press screening of Amy Berg's latest film An Open Secret was cancelled on November 4, it looked as if the world premiere would not see the light of day. On a chilly fall night in New York City at the Sva Theatre in Chelsea, not only was the film screened on schedule 10 days later as a Special Event but Amy Berg, along with Evan Henzi, one of the film’s subjects and his mother Anita Henzi, BizParentz founders Anne Henry and Paula Dorn, Joey Coleman and journalist John Connolly came for a Q&A after the movie.

Watch: Gina Prince-Bythewood on Gotham Nominee 'Beyond the Lights' (Exclusive Video)

15 November 2014 11:27 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

There are many talented women directors working--if not often enough--in Hollywood today. One of them is writer-director Gina Prince-Bythewood, who broke out of UCLA winning prizes, writing and directing shorts and television (HBO's "Disappearing Acts"), and delivering a well-reviewed Sundance hit for New Line Cinema, "Love & Basketball" (2000), starring Omar Epps and Sanaa Lathan, which scored Prince-Bythewood an Indie Spirit award and a Humanitas prize and grossed $27.4 million domestic. After producing 2003's "Biker Boyz," Prince-Bythewood followed up with Fox Searchlight's 2008 literary adaptation "The Secret Life of Bees," starring Dakota Fanning and Queen Latifah, which played better for audiences ($37.7 million domestic) than critics.  It's been another long stretch until "Beyond the Lights" (November 14), which played to raves in Toronto and Urbanworld, and just earned a Gotham Best »

14 November 2014 10:10 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

CAA’s co-head of film finance and sales Micah Green was talked into going to the first Los Cabos Film Festival in Cabo San Lucas three years ago mostly as favor for an actor client who was working with the founders to try to make sure the first edition had a decent turnout.

Though Cabo is still recovering from the big hurricane Odile, with scaffolding everywhere and several major resorts still undergoing repairs, the festival continuing full-steam ahead with the hopeful hashtag #unstoppable much in evidence.Three years later, he’s such a convert that he’s brought a delegation of about 30 assorted agents, producers and financiers to the five-day long festival based in the Mexican resort town.

Discovering or meeting with the talent showcased at screenings of some 40 features is one major part of why Green is here; the other is his belief that it’s the ideal place »

2015 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Andrew Renzi’s Franny

12 November 2014 10:15 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Moving from producer hat-wearing days (AfterschoolTwo Gates of Sleep) to firmly stippling Park City with a metaphysical, deeply humane and serene portraits The Fort (2012) and Karaoke! (2013), Andrew Renzi saddled into feature filmmaking earlier this year with dual projects, the birth of Fishtail, the docu 16mm set in Montana and narrated by Harry Dean Stanton was the first to push out (’14 Tribeca/ Karlovy Vary), while his narrative feature debut appears to be close to going into labor. Production on the 2013 January Screenwriters Lab Franny began last October, with Richard Gere, Dakota Fanning and Theo James balancing on a tightrope act. On the tech side we find cinematographer Joe Anderson (Simon Killer), plus a Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans signed score (Enemy).

Gist: Gere will play a fun-loving, hedonistic philanthropist who works his way into the lives of a newlywed couple (Dakota Fanning, Theo James) to recapture the life he once had. »

Dakota Fanning Not “Dissing” Kristen Stewart; Robert Pattinson Controversy Made Up By HollywoodLife

10 November 2014 12:44 PM, PST | GossipCop | See recent GossipCop news »

HollywoodLife is at it again. The webloid, which at this point is largely fan fiction falsely advertised as "news," wants to know whether Dakota Fanning was "dissing" her friend Kristen Stewart by allegedly attending an Fka Twigs concert with Robert Pattinson over the weekend. The blog will use virtually any excuse to set up feuds and fights between celebrities, especially if they're friends. That's because HollywoodLife loves to get cheap clicks and can do so by pitting fan bases against each other. »

Holy hot pants, Batman!  The almost always demure Dakota Fanning stepped out to the 18th Annual Accessories Council Ace Awards in Manhattan on Nov. 3, but she seemed to have forgotten one important wardrobe staple: a slip. The Effie Gray actress, 20, walked the black carpet in what was essentially a T-shirt bra and high-waisted undies, a coupling barely obscured by the netted, navy blue Proenza Schouler dress she pulled over her delicates. Fanning also added accessories from the brand—a fringed clutch and black sandal heels. Keeping the focus [...] »

Non-Twilight Film Roles That Will Restore Your Faith in Kristen Stewart

16 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

With Camp X-Ray hitting theaters this weekend, Kristen Stewart is finally exploring life beyond Twilight. The indie drama, which tells the story of one soldier stationed at Guantanamo Bay detention camp, is a far cry from Bella and the world of vampires Stewart became so famous for over the past five years. During that time, Stewart became pigeonholed and often hated on for her participation in The Twilight Saga. And for those who only know those films are doing themselves a disservice. Her latest film — the first of three high profile films she has coming out this year — has earned the actress accolades on the festival circuit and reminded many of the promise she showed in roles, such as Sarah Altman in Panic Room or Emily in Adventureland. It’s those films that fans (and the haters) should watch if they want to restore their faith in Stewart.
