2016 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Travis Mathews’ Oscillate Wildly

25 November 2015 11:30 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Slowly moving away from the docu world, but keeping with real life subjects, filmmaker Travis Mathews first gained entry into Sundance with the New Frontier played Interior. Leather Bar. back in 2013. Fast-forward a couple of years and he might be headed there again. While Oscillate Wildly has been on the Sffs/Krf fast track and landing several West Coast grants and it was reported that shooting took place during the summer, unless this was shot completely off the radar, we believe we’re a tad too early with this one. If not, then we called it.

Gist: Written by Travis Mathews and Keith Wilson, Ben is a hot-headed young gay man with a mild form of spastic cerebral palsy that expresses itself in his swaying walk and intermittent muscle spasms. He lives a solitary and routine life in a working-class neighborhood of Austin, Texas, with no family and few friends. »

24 November 2015 6:24 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While the film has already been released in France, China and several other international markets, Paramount Pictures set a March 18, 2016 release date for this animated adaptation in the U.S. Today the studio has unveiled another trailer for The Little Prince, which could be a huge hit when it arrives in theaters next spring.

2016 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Wayne Roberts’ Katie Says Goodbye

24 November 2015 1:30 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Take two thesps from the previous Sundance film festival who both broke out big and then pair them up for your directorial debut. This is the chance that was afforded to Wayne Roberts. Grand Jury Sundance winning Me and Earl and the Dying Girl‘s Olivia Cooke and Next section winning James White‘s Christopher Abbott were enlisted for Katie Says Goodbye back in March for the New Mexico production. Included on the Blacklist’s weekly top read scripts and described as a blend of coming-of-ager, a modern Western and the first part of a possible trilogy, this appears to visit some dark matter and tonally could be the antithesis of The Girlfriend Experience.

Gist: Katie (Cooke), a kindhearted seventeen-year-old turns to prostitution to overcome poverty and fulfill her dream of a new life in San Francisco.

2016 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: James Franco’s In Dubious Battle

24 November 2015 12:30 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The unpredictability with this filmmaker-actor is that he has got plenty of projects stoking the fire and we never know which item might push forth next. Prolific, inexhaustible, enervating and stoic with literature’s greats, James Franco‘s selected career path merits its own NYC course of its own. Franco could probably fit it in his schedule and teach it. After tending to the rabbits on Broadways’ Of Mice and Men, it’s Steinbeck follow in the footsteps of Cormac McCarthy and William Faulkner as book to film interests. Production began on In Dubious Battle at the beginning of the year. Mostly shot in Atlanta, this amassed a crew of players comprised of Analeigh Tipton, Josh Hutcherson, Selena Gomez, Bryan Cranston, Vincent D’Onofrio, Ashley Greene, Nat Wolff, Ed Harris, Duvall, Zach Braff, Austin Stowell, Keegan Allen, Darin Cooper, Ahna O’Reilly, John Savage, Beth Grant, Scott Haze and of course Franco himself. »

2016 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: James Schamus’ Indignation

24 November 2015 12:00 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

A veteran player on the independent film scene dating all the way back to Todd Haynes’ 1991 release of the seminal queer film Poison, the head honcho for the Good Machine and Focus Features had a steady set of hands on many indie productions including nearly all of Ang Lee’s entire back catalogue. This past June, James Schamus tried on a different hat, so we would not be a surprise to see Indignation featured at a high profile festival and it would certainly not impossible that we are treated to his bowtie and parka combo this January. A high value acquisitions title is actually one of two (the other being Ewan McGregor’s American Pastoral) Philip Roth novels that will show in 2016. In a larger budgeted, perhaps more showy and equally awards friendly piece taking place in the 1950’s backdrop as last year’s Brooklyn, this features Logan Lerman, Sarah Gadon »

2016 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Andrew Neel’s Goat

24 November 2015 10:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

You can only have an actor attached for so long until they “grow” out of the role and you can only have a director on board for a short lapse until they move onto other projects. The wobbled history of Goat, a book to film adaptation begins back in 2004 when we first reported that David Gordon Green would direct the project. A 2005 update that Emile Hirsch would topline and then the baton was passed onto Jeff Nichols in 2007 when he was suppose to have taken over the director’s chair. Flash-forward to late last year when James Franco joined forces with Killer Films, and Andrew Neel (a fiction and non-fiction filmmaker with already five features under his belt including 2012’s King Kelly) was hired – thus landing the coveted directing gig. Production took place in May in Cincinnati, and if this takes a truly savage, rough hewn approach, no doubt that »

Mindy Project Recap: Danny's Home — and Why That's Maybe a Bad Thing

24 November 2015 8:10 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Absence makes the heart grow fonder — and it definitely makes the heart forget about how the heart’s fiancé wants the heart to give up her professional goals and dreams.

That’s the situation on this week’s Mindy Project, in which Danny is back after a long visit with his ailing dad (yay!) and wants to set a date for the wedding (yay again!) but completely reverts to AggroDan upon hearing that Mindy has started a side business while he was gone — after all, won’t Leo just shrivel and grow up to be a serial killer if she’s not a stay-at-home mom? »

2016 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Ian Olds’ The Fixer

24 November 2015 8:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

It would be a futile exercise to try to pigeonhole this filmmaker into one category and just looking at the work samples that have crossed into Sundance territory he has

2007’s short Bomb, brought an unproduced screenplay The Western Habit at the 2011 January Screenwriters Lab and was the editor on the 2013’s kink. However, Ian Olds is better known for his docu features contributions in Occupation: Dreamland (winner of a 2006 Independent Spirit Award) and Fixer: The Taking of Ajmal Naqshbandi. He has two different films on the burner with the Sffs backed (2011 Sffs / Hearst Screenwriting Grant Recipient and Fall 2013, Spring 2014 & Spring 2015 Sffs / Krf Filmmaking Grant Recipient)  The Fixer (the feature film version) that might break in early 2016. Starring James Franco, Rachel Brosnahan, Melissa Leo and Dominic Rains, they were still making casting announcements in early August, but we’re feeling that this might have crossed the finish line in time. »

Sony Employees Speak Out One Year After Hack: "An epic nightmare"

23 November 2015 7:05 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"An epic nightmare." "[A]n Earth-shattering change." "[T]his terrible, awful experience that would stretch on forever and ever.” So Sony employees—speaking almost exclusively on the condition of anonymity, save for CEO Michael Lynton—describe the hack heard 'round the world one year later, in an illuminating and thorough report from Slate's Amanda Hess. The North Korean-directed data breach, presumed to be retaliation for the negative depiction of leader Kim Jong-un in "The Interview," starring James Franco and Seth Rogen, was, as our own Anne Thompson wrote at the time, "the most significant entertainment story" of 2014. And the revelations continue to be parceled out: before it debuted at AFI Fest, critics worried that "Concussion" had been softened by the studio to placate the NFL (it wasn't), and now Hess' piece paints a picture of corporate chaos that hit Sony's rank-and-file hardest.    Read More: "Sony »

Seth Rogen's throwing a 'Sausage Party,' and guess who's writing the theme song

23 November 2015 5:15 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When Seth Rogen was at our offices last week to discuss his new film 'The Night Before," we touched on a number of subjects, and the conversation turned at one point to "Sausage Party," an animated film directed by Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon. For those who haven't heard of the film, it's understandable. It's not due in theaters until August of 2016, but it's been in production for a while now. The film tells the story of Barry, a hot dog voiced by Michael Cera, who begins to suspect that the entire ideological afterlife that has been explained to him for his entire existence is, in fact, a lie. What that lie is and how his adventure peels back the layers of reality is something you'll have to see for yourself, but it's a blisteringly filthy script, and very, very funny. It's got a great voice cast, including Rogen, »

10 Little Known True Stories From The Golden Age Of Porn

22 November 2015 3:03 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Miramax Pictures

When David Simon, the mastermind behind HBO’s The Wire and Treme, was told by a former location manager that he really needed to meet with a guy who had once worked in the mob-controlled adult film industry in New York’s Times Square in the 1970s he thought, “I’m married with kids and lawn furniture. I don’t want to go there, man. That’s dark.”

Indeed. To the wider world, there is something undignified about someone who concerns themselves with the history of dirty movies. What’s to know? They were once short movies sold under the counter, then they became full movies watched in public and now porn is seemingly the reason the internet exists (well, that and cat pictures).

Along the way, the mob controlled everything until they didn’t, the drugs remained plentiful despite so many people dying, the FBI spent millions »
