Catherine Keener in Trailer for Sundance Refugee Thriller 'War Story'

9 July 2014 7:42 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

"I know you, I want to help you!" IFC has debuted the trailer for a Sundance film called War Story, from writer/director Mark Jackson, starring Catherine Keener as a photojournalist who tries to help a young refugee, but seems to get in over her heard with some violent political affairs. French actress Hafsia Herzi also stars in the film. This looks interesting, but there's not much more to it than a shoddy story and some campy, ever-so-obvious dialogue about "but I had to get the story!" wait "there is no story." "What have they done to you?" It doesn't look terrible, just not that good. Take a look below, this might interest others more. Here's the official trailer for Mark Jackson's War Story, direct from IFC Films' YouTube: A battle-scarred photojournalist (Keener) risks her life to rescue a young refugee in this gripping, ripped-from-the-headlines thriller. War Story is directed by Mark Jackson, »

New Trailer For War Story Starring Catherine Keener

7 July 2014 1:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the greatest cinematic travesties of 2013 was the ‘blink and you’ll miss her’ casting of Academy Award nominee Catherine Keener (Capote) in Captain Phillips. Don’t get me wrong – it’s an exceptional movie – but you don’t put Catherine Keener in your film just to relegate her to one speaking scene, and an action shot of her running down some stairs. It’s a shameful waste of one of our most talented actresses. But, fret not. Almost by way of compensation, we have a trailer for War Story, in which Keener seems to own the screen in an honest-to-goodness leading role.

Keener also produces the film, which is the second directorial effort of Mark Jackson – after his 2011 debut, Without. The script, which Jackson also penned with Kristin Gore (Futurama), centres on Lee (Keener) – a war photographer in the midst of a period of self-exile in Sicily, dealing »

Channing Tatum To Produce And Star In Untitled Crime Thriller For Sony

7 May 2014 10:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sony Pictures is hoping to send Channing Tatum undercover once again, as the studio has just picked up an untitled crime thriller which the actor will both star in and produce. Inspired by a true story, the 1970′s set film will follow an ordinary family man who “risks everything by going undercover to take down the biggest mob boss in the country.”

Scripted by Kristin Gore (who penned David O. Russell’s incomplete Nailed), this project certainly sounds like it could be a good star vehicle for Tatum. After showing off both his comedic and action chops over the past couple of years, with films like White House Down, 21 Jump Street (and its sequel), Haywire and several others, it will be nice to see him return to a more serious, grounded and dramatic role.

Plus, a crime thriller is one of the few movies that Tatum hasn’t made yet. »

Channing Tatum Boards New Crime Thriller

7 May 2014 2:54 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Channing Tatum is a brilliant example of a fantastic actor to rise from obscurity to Hollywood stardom within the last ten years. After initially receiving criticism for poorly chosen roles in lightweight, underwritten films such as G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra and Dear John, Tatum is now one of the most highly regarded actors in Hollywood.

The Magic Mike star will next be seen in this summers Jupiter Ascending and 22 Jump Street, which are both looking to be brilliant popcorn flicks for a hopefully entertaining summer. It seems that the partnership between Tatum and Sony on the latter of his upcoming summer films, has lead to another upcoming project in the pipeline. It is being reported that Tatum will star in a brand new crime thriller for Sony which he will also produce alongside Reid Carolin, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (86th Academy Awards).

HBO to Launch Women in Space

1 April 2014 7:32 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In space, no one can hear your show be constantly compared to Girls. That astronomical fact is excellent news for screenwriter Kristin Gore, daughter of the illustrious Al, who has teamed up with HBO to develop the half-hour comedy Women in Space. The show purportedly tracks the journey of "a group of women exploring the final frontier on a mission to colonize another planet," a intriguing premise that would really have to go out of its way not to pass the Bechdel Test with flying colors. »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #54. Mark Jackson’s War Story

26 February 2014 7:30 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

War Story

Director: Mark Jackson

Writers: Kristin Gore, Mark Jackson

Producers: Kristin Gore, Catherine Keener, Matt Ratner, Shona Tuckman

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Catherine Keener, Hafsia Herzi, Ben Kingsley

A simmering indie gem that the international film fest circuit and indie industry folk championed, Mark Jackson’s psychologically twisted, stylistically polished Without might just be the perfect bedfellow for the Sundance preemed sophomore film. Working from a stunning, murky photographed palette, War Story is lead by a Catherine Keener who exquisitely deciphers the knee-deep psychotropic post-war affects in isolating, alienating, trenches.

Gist: Lee (Keener) is a war photographer who has spent her adult life in the world’s most treacherous conflict zones, documenting the catastrophes of others. When we meet her, she has recently experienced her own horror after being taken hostage and brutalized in Libya. Instead of returning to New York where her concerned colleagues and loved ones anxiously await her, »

'Nailed': The David O. Russell Film That Never Was

4 February 2014 12:56 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

A version of this story first appeared in the Feb. 14 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. A "Lost" movie from the director whose films have back-to-back Oscar nominations? Believe it. In 2008, as his follow-up to I Heart Huckabees, David O. Russell tackled Nailed, an adaptation of Kristin Gore's book about a woman who gets a nail in her head, which kicks off peculiar behavior and a crusade to Washington, where she meets a congressman who uses her for his own ends.

War Story – first look review

28 January 2014 10:03 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Rotterdam film festival: Catherine Keener exudes dark anxiety in Mark Jackson's tale of the European immigrant experience

Did Catherine Keener not sleep for weeks before shooting her role as Lee, the traumatised photographer on the run from personal tragedy in this drama by Mark Jackson? Because boy, does she look exhausted. Holed up in a Sicilian hotel, bruised and twitchy and ignoring the ringing phone, Lee is given a remarkably black and nervy energy by Keener, her whole body drooping as if more than usually susceptible to the inexorable pull of gravity.

Gradually, we learn that something went wrong in Libya, and that Lee was one of the luckier ones – a bracing truth with which she is confronted by fellow warzone veteran and possibly ex-lover Albert (a bafflingly underused Ben Kingsley). But did she even do any good? This most war-photographer-specific of dilemmas is what motivates her to snap out »

2014 Sundance “Trading Cards” Series: #22. Sydney Freeland (Drunktown’s Finest)

16 January 2014 1:30 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Eric Lavallee: Name me three of your favorite “2013 discoveries”…

Sydney Freeland: Her (Film), The Newsroom (TV), The Legend of Korra (TV)

Lavallee: Could you discuss what kind of visual strategy you had in place what were you looking to achieve with your dp Peter Holland? Freeland: This is interesting. The original influence for the film was Amores Perros and we talked quite a bit about using this as reference for a visual style (handheld, kinetic). That was our basically our game plan going into production, but we found that film wanted to be much quieter and static than that. It’s a testament to Peter’s skill because he was able to recognize that and adapt accordingly.

Lavallee: We all know how Robert Redford is a support system of his own with the festival and institute but here he took an extra, unusual step in becoming an executive producer. »

2014 Sundance “Trading Cards” Series: #21. Kristin Gore (War Story)

16 January 2014 1:00 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Eric Lavallee: Name me three of your favorite “2013 discoveries”…

Kristin Gore: The Eric Andre show, Rodriguez, Pulphead by John Jeremiah Sullivan.

Lavallee: Mark’s debut film “Without” was a revelation of sorts here on the site and in the indie sphere. How did you two come to collaborate on this and what special areas did you specialize in apart from what we imagine was giving the female characters a distinct female voice?

Gore: I met Mark through Catherine Keener. She and I worked together in 2008 on Nailed and have been close every since. She introduced me to Mark when they began collaborating on War Story at the end of 2012, and he and I clicked instantly and fell easily and naturally into working together. I loved Without and I believe War Story is an exciting and intriguing leap forward for Mark as a filmmaker. He’s extraordinarily talented, and Catherine »

Eric Lavallee: Name me three of your favorite “2013 discoveries”…

Jeremiah Bitsui: My top three 2013 discoveries are: High Intensity Interval Training, Beats Headphones, and Uber car service.

Lavallee: Could you tell me about how you landed the part of SickBoy ­ and your motivations for taking on the role…

Bitsui: I learned of Drunktown’s Finest and the role of Sickboy a few years back as Sydney Freeland (our director) had showed interest in me playing the role. Then Chad Burris jumped on board this project within this last year, we met at Sundance 2013 and have developed a friendship. He gave me the heads up the project would shoot summer 2013 and they still would like me to play. Then Mateo Frazier, director of Blaze You Out jumped on as a producer which we had just worked together. So when it all came together it seemed like the right fit. It’s »
