Former Weinstein Company exec joins recently relaunched distributor.

Ben Friedman, formerly acquisitions vp for The Weinstein Company, has joined Icon Film Distribution (Ifd) as acquisitions manager with immediate effect.

It marks the latest senior hire by Ifd since its backing by New Sparta last autumn and the launch last month of its first slate of films for UK release.

Jolie's 'Unbroken' to be Yearlong Oscar Target

26 March 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Hitfix has a report from this year's CinemaCon where Angelina Jolie was on hand to promote her upcoming sophomore directorial effort, Unbroken. If you remember, I already placed the film at #1 on my early Best Picture predictions and her CinemaCon appearance reaffirms the film's early frontrunner status. Though, like Ncaa Basketball, being a preseason #1 only proves to put a target on your back, it's anything but a guaranteed victory. Unbroken won't be hitting theaters until December 25 and its star power behind the camera is impressive from Jolie in the director's chair, to screenwriters Richard Lagravenese, William Nicholson and Joel and Ethan Coen, cinematographer Roger Deakins and composer Alexandre Desplat. The film is based on the New York Times bestselling book "Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption" by Laura Hillenbrand ("Seabiscuit: An American Legend"), and follows the incredible life story of Olympian and war »

Katie Holmes’s Televison Return Will Ruin Marriages

11 March 2014 7:01 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

The descriptions detailing what Richard Lagravenese’s new ABC drama is about are a little messy and hard to follow, but I think any misunderstandings lie solely on my end because other people seem to find this project alluring. It’s been a long time since Katie Holmes starred on Dawnson’s Creek, but she has somehow been enticed into returning to television despite a movie career that ain’t nothing to scoff at. So whatever this untitled pilot is actually about, it must be pretty good if Holmes is getting onboard. Maybe I should meditate on this – sometimes meditating can open your mind up, allowing you to see things that were always there, which in this case seems to be the brilliance behind destroying somebody else’s marriage.

This pilot, which is set in New York City, tells the tale of the love and rivalry between two equally matched, »

Katie Holmes Cast in ABC Drama Pilot

7 March 2014 2:30 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Katie Holmes has been cast in an untitled drama pilot from Richard Lagravenese for ABC. The show is set in New York and revolves around "two equally matched, powerful socialites who play out their obsessive attraction and seduction of each other through their manipulation of others," according to the show's log line. Per Deadline, Holmes will play "a woman of education and breeding" who runs a charity with her husband and gets caught up in a Dangerous Liaisons–esque romantic entanglement. This would be Holmes's first regular TV gig since Dawson's Creek, so it'd be nice for all of us if they could cast another Dawson alum as her husband. Kerr Smith, maybe? »
