Katie Cassidy Talks The Scribbler, Fighting for the Role, Tattoos and Piercings, Arrow Season 3, and More

2 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Based on the graphic novel of the same name, The Scribbler follows Suki (Katie Cassidy), a young woman who is confronting her destructive mental illness by using an experimental method, called The Siamese Burn, that’s designed to eliminate multiple personalities.  Surrounded by a colorful cast of characters who keep ending up dead, Suki begins to wonder just which personality might turn out to be her.  Directed by John Suits, the film also stars Garret Dillahunt, Michelle Trachtenberg, Michael Imperioli, Gina Gershon, Eliza Dushku, Billy Campbell and Sasha Grey. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Katie Cassidy talked about how she fought for this role, how hands-on the development of the character was, how much the tattoos and piercings helped her become Suki, that she wanted to burn the wig when she was done with the shoot, working in Linda Vista Community Hospital, which is said to be haunted, »

Film Review: ‘The Scribbler’

19 September 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Despite a game lead performance from smallscreen star Katie Cassidy (“Arrow”) as a young woman with multiple personality disorder and an incorrigible punk attitude, this latest low-budget outing from helmer John Suits simply doesn’t have the imagination or resources necessary to pull off its clumsy stabs at visual pizzazz. Instead, the result resembles what Zack Snyder’s maligned curio “Sucker Punch” might have looked like if it had been made by “Sharknado” producers the Asylum. Prefabricated for a cult following unlikely to ever materialize, “The Scribbler” faces a bleak future beyond the margins of a Sept. 19 day-and-date limited theatrical/VOD release followed by a homevid bow one month later.

Schaffer adapts his own source material here, opting to tell a paper-thin story in a frustratingly convoluted way. Pic opens with Suki (Cassidy) defending herself to a crusty cop (Michael Imperioli) and sympathetic criminal psychologist (Eliza Dushku) after a string »

The Scribbler Review

14 September 2014 10:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite acknowledging that The Scribbler boasts a title fitting only the wussiest superhero imaginable, this indie graphic novel adaptation somewhat holds its own against bigger Marvel/DC bullies who command the comic book genre. It’s not easy for a little fish to swim with the sharks, as even larger-budget films like The Spirit couldn’t hack it, but Dan Schaffer’s multiple story layers are able to provide enough groundwork for director John Suits to build a heavily saturated, psychotically seedy world around. There are certainly heroes and villains, but not in the way comic book movies have taught us to recognize, which is somewhat refreshing with so many spandex-clad hard-bodies running about and being all disgustingly charming – give me a cynical, conflicted hero any day of the week.

Katie Cassidy plays Suki, a woman with multiple personalities who currently is undergoing a continuing procedure called “The Siamese Burn »

Pantelion’s ‘Cantinflas’ Tapped As Mexico’s Foreign-Language Oscar Submission

11 September 2014 3:45 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Mexico has named Cantinflas as its Best Foreign Language Film Oscar submission, just in time for the film’s theatrical push into Mexico and Latin America this month. The biopic of famed Mexican comedian Mario Moreno aka Cantinflas was released by Pantelion in the U.S. on August 29 and has grossed $5 million stateside in 400 theaters. Director Sebastian del Amo co-wrote the script with Edui Tijerina. Óscar Jaenada (The Losers, Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) stars opposite Michael Imperioli in the tale of the oddly mustachioed icon who rose from humble beginnings, earned the nickname “The Charlie Chaplin of Mexico,” and helped launch the country’s golden age of cinema.

Pantelion’s been pushing Cantinflas hard for months, attaching its trailer to screenings of studio blockbusters and marketing to multigenerational Latino audiences. The film opens in Mexico on September 16 via Videocine Distribucion and will release in 14 Latin American countries during the next few months. »

11 September 2014 10:04 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Mexico's film academy has picked Cantinflas, a biopic about iconic comedian Mario Moreno, as its foreign-language Oscar submission. Starring Oscar Jaenada alongside Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos), the Sebastian del Amo-directed Cantinflas opened in the U.S. on Aug. 29 and it will bow in Mexico on Sept. 16. Should the film land an Oscar nomination, Cantinflas will be looking to make history as Mexico's first winner in the foreign language category. Mexico has won eight Oscar nominations in the category, but has walked away empty handed every time. Recent nominees include Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's drama Biutiful in 2011

I’m Scribbling as Fast as I Can: Suits Unsuited for Comic Book Adaptation

Within minutes of its meager running time, which opens with a disorienting barrage of monotonous narration, John Suits’ The Scribbler makes good on the asinine promise of its silly title. Starting out as producer, Suits has a trio of other direct-to-dvd quality horror titles under his belt, this time adapting a celebrated graphic novel by Dan Schaffer with a handful of notable names in the cast that would indicate some semblance of worthwhile quality, but alas, there’s nary of whiff of enjoyable screen time in this tonally awkward, amateurish handling concerning a disorder that’s been long out of pulp fiction fashion for several decades.

Suki (Katie Cassidy) suffers from Multiple Personality Disorder and has checked into a halfway house for troubled individuals. Her physician (Billy Campbell) has prescribed a controversial treatment known as “The Siamese Burn, »

Win The Sopranos complete series boxset

4 September 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

To mark the release of The Sopranos 15th anniversary complete series on 8th September, we’ve been given 1 boxset to give away.

Tony Soprano (Gandolfini) is the head of two families and sometimes the pressure is too much to bear. As head of the Sopranos crime family, he deals with conniving underbosses, rival families, and the occasional dead body. As husband to his wife, Carmela, and father to his two children, Meadow and Anthony Jr., he deals with financial difficulties, infidelity, and trying to keep his “professional” life from colliding with his family life.

In addition to the outstanding performance from Gandolfini, The Sopranos features a critically acclaimed cast including Lorraine Bracco (Goodfellas, The Basketball Diaries) as Tony’s therapist Dr Jennifer Melfi, Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie, Copland) as Tony’s wife Carmela Soprano, and his mobster pals Michael Imperioli (Goodfellas, The Lovely Bones) as Christopher Moltisanti and Steve Schirripa »

Biopic Cantinflas Lacks All the Irreverence of the Man

2 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

While Cantinflas the man was famous for irreverent, improvisatory comedy, Cantinflas the film is an uncritical, stiff biopic. The only thing memorable about the film’s depiction of Mexican movie star Mario "Cantinflas" Moreno’s rise to mega-popularity is its bifurcated plot. Cantinflas begins in 1955 with the story of would-be Hollywood producer Michael Todd (Michael Imperioli) and his struggle to bankroll an adaptation of Around the World in 80 Days. Michael’s search for international stars leads to a series of decades-spanning flashbacks revealing how young Moreno (Óscar Jaenada) transformed into the performer who saved Todd’s film. Todd’s half of Cantinflas is consistently unbearable, since so much of it relies »

Even after seven years, the series finale for HBO's "The Sopranos" has had fans debating whether Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini) died or not.
