Chris Messina Reveals New Film's 'Mindy Project' Connection — Plus, Check Out the 'Alex of Venice' Poster

19 February 2015 11:11 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Chris Messina is no stranger to being in front of the camera -- he plays the curmudgable Danny Castellano on Fox’s The Mindy Project and has starred in The Newsroom, Argo, and Julie & Julia -- but for the first time, he’s stepping behind the camera. And it’s been a long time coming.

“I had wanted to direct for a while,” Messina told ETonline. “And I was kind of talking about it for a while. I was scared to do it, and I couldn’t ever find the right project.” Then came Alex of Venice.

The movie stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Smashed, The Spectacular Now) as the titular Alex, a workaholic environmental attorney who must learn to balance work life and familial duties to her ailing father and introverted son after her husband (played by Messina) unexpectedly leaves.

Here’s the exclusive debut of the movie’s poster:

A Rundown Of Buzzy Berlin Titles As Market Begins To Roll

6 February 2015 8:34 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

The halls are starting to hum softly here in Berlin as the European Film Market swings into gear. The first deals were announced yesterday before the event officially opened, with The Weinstein Co notably boarding Im Global’s The Man Who Made It Snow. This morning, FilmNation unveiled a series of offshore output deals for titles from Open Road, which will kick off with the Jamie Foxx/Michelle Monaghan-starrer Sleepless Nights.

Though it’s not likely to be a frenzy, and with currency concerns in the market internationally, Berlin should see more action in the coming days. Distributors are looking for product for 2016 and beyond, and some memorable buys have emerged here in recent years. In 2014, The Weinstein Company made a record-setting $7M deal for The Imitation Game which has now made about $140M worldwide and has an armful of Oscar nominations to boot.

Much of the pre-buy buzz »
