Directors on Their Teams: Alexander Payne on ‘Nebraska’

13 December 2013 2:53 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alexander Payne’s “Nebraska” has been racking up awards and nominations in the past two weeks, which is a long-delayed payoff for his work. The filmmaker waited nine years to film the script, and spent a year in planning before “Nebraska” went into official pre-production. He worked with scripter Bob Nelson, and spent much of that year in casting and driving around the state with the design team “to get the right look.” He and his team had to train their eyes about how various tones and textures look in black and white. They shot the film for $13.5 million, 36 days principal photography. Payne says, “I hope the picture does some business, not just for its own sake, but so other filmmakers can shoot in black and white. Every time you do something outside the box, you want it to do well, for the sake of other filmmakers.”

Writers and critics on the best books of 2013

23 November 2013 1:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Hilary Mantel, Jonathan Franzen, Mohsin Hamid, Ruth Rendell, Tom Stoppard, Malcolm Gladwell, Eleanor Catton and many more recommend the books that impressed them this year

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Five Star Billionaire by Tash Aw (Fourth Estate) is a brilliant, sprawling, layered and unsentimental portrayal of contemporary China. It made me think and laugh. I also love Dave Eggers' The Circle (Hamish Hamilton), which is a sharp-eyed and funny satire about the obsession with "sharing" our lives through technology. It's convincing and a little creepy.

William Boyd

By strange coincidence two of the most intriguing art books I read this year had the word "Breakfast" in their titles. They were Breakfast with Lucian by Geordie Greig (Jonathan Cape) and Breakfast at Sotheby's by Philip Hook (Particular). Greig's fascinating, intimate biography of Lucian Freud was a revelation. Every question I had about Freud – from the aesthetic to the intrusively gossipy – was »

Ahna O'Reilly on Working With "Incredible" Ex James Franco

1 November 2013 2:49 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Ahna O'Reilly really knows a thing or two about working with James Franco. Not only has she known him for years (they even dated), but she also worked with him on his feature-length debut, As I Lay Dying, which comes out on video on demand today and will be available on DVD on Nov. 5. We got a chance to talk to Ahna about working on the film adaptation of the classic of the same name by William Faulkner and learned about her new literature-related project with James. Popsugar: How did you get involved with As I Lay Dying? Ahna O'Reilly: I’ve known James Franco and [producer] Vince Jolivette for years, and I knew that they wanted to make this. At one point they mentioned to me that they wanted me to be Dewey Dell, but this was two years before it actually got made. I just didn’t want »

Global Showbiz Briefs: Deauville Fest Sets Pair Of Prizes; Universal Pics Int’l Entertainment; Smithsonian Channel; More

Deauville Fest Taps ‘Les Garcons Et Guillaume’ For D’Ornano Prize The Deauville Festival of American Film has announced Les Garçons Et Guillaume A Table! as the winner of this year’s Michel d’Ornano prize, which will be awarded during the festival on September 7. The d’Ornano prize is given to a debut French film and comes with a purse of €3,000 for the director – in this case Guillaume Gallienne — €3,000 for the producer and €10,000 for the distributor to use in promoting the film. (Full disclosure, I am a member of the jury that selects the winner.) Les Garçons debuted in Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes, where it scooped the Art Cinema award and the Sacd prize. Gallienne also wrote the film, a transfer of his autobiographical stage show about a young man who isn’t exactly what his family perceives him to be. Deauville, which runs from August 30-September 8, also announced »
