29 August 2012 4:55 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

From my experience,  horror films are always the most interesting but least attended films at smaller film festivals as festival audiences seem to be more interested in stories about losing your virginity than werewolves and zombies. However, two venues in Telluride, Colorado hope to serve that small group of dedicated art-house horror fans with three days of horror films from around the world at the 3rd annual Telluride Horror Show.

Below is the list of films scheduled to screen at the Telluride Horror Show, which takes place on October 12, 13, and 14, 2012.

The 3rd annual Telluride Horror Show is a 3-day “genre fans will experience the latest horror films from all over the world in Telluride’s historic Sheridan Opera House and Nugget Theatre. The festival screens an average of 20 feature films and 25+ short films and hosts special programs, guests, and a party or two. The Telluride Horror Show was named one »

Max Minghella and Eloise Mumford Are ‘Not Safe For Work’ in Joe Johnston’s New Thriller

14 February 2012 10:42 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Director Joe Johnston has chosen to follow up his big-budget superhero flick, last summer’s Captain America: The First Avenger, with a new “micro-budgeted thriller” that will, unfortunately, be pretty hard to search for online. The film is called Not Safe For Work (or just Nsfw) and “it follows a young paralegal trapped in an office with a killer mission to destroy files and anyone that stands in his path.” Sounds like somebody’s got a case of the Mondays! (Forgive me.) The film is starting to come together, with Max Minghella (The Social Network, The Darkest Hour) in talks to play that put-upon paralegal, with Elise Mumford (part of the ensemble on the new TV show The River, and soon to be seen in that Miley Cyrus sorority flick So Undercover) also in talks to Minghella’s girlfriend, who just so happens to works in his office.

Max Minghella And Eloise Mumford Up For Joe Johnston's Micro-Budget Thriller

14 February 2012 9:16 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Action-adventure director Joe Johnston, who dazzled audiences last summer with Captain America: The First Avenger, is currently casting his next feature, a micro-budgeted thriller called Not Safe For Work, or Nsfw. True to form, Johnston, who has helped launch such talent as Chris Evans and Jake Gyllenhaal (October Sky), is pursuing some relative unknowns for the film's lead roles. Variety reveals that Max Minghella, whose most noteworthy role to date was a minor part in The Social Network, and Eloise Mumford, a cast member of the new TV thriller The River, have entered into talks to play Nsfw's drama-prone couple. The script, penned by horror-thriller creators Adam Mason and Simon Boyes, centers on a young paralegal who comes face to face with a dangerous killer, who is on a covert mission to destroy some top-secret documents as well as anyone who gets in his way. Minghella is up for the »

Max Minghella and Eloise Mumford Are ‘Not Safe’ For Joe Johnston’s ‘Work’

13 February 2012 5:43 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Less than two weeks after Joe Johnston boarded as the helmer, we’re hearing from Variety that Max Minghella — who emerged from his father’s considerable shadow with The Social Network — and Eloise Mumford (TV’s The River) are both being eyed to lead Not Safe for Work, a “micro-budget thriller.”

Produced by Blumhouse Pictures and written by Simon Boyes and Adam Mason, Work centers on “a paralegal who gets trapped in an office with a killer working for another corporation to destroy sensitive files.” Minghella would, of course, play said paralegal; if she signs on, we can look forward to how Mumford would handle the role of “his girlfriend, who works at the same office.”

Both of them, in fact, would probably acquaint themselves rather nicely to the project, and, what’s more, they’d be nice boosts to what already sounds like a nifty little project. (Sure, I »

13 February 2012 5:25 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Director Joe Johnston has gone from the big budgets of Captain America: The First Avenger down to the micro-budget of Not Safe for Work. He must be a good barterer because Universal Pictures has tapped Max Minghella (The Social Network) and Eloise Mumford (The River) to star in the Blumhouse Productions thriller.  Written by Adam Mason and Simon Boyes, Not Safe for Work centers on a young paralegal (Minghella) trapped at work while a killer is on the loose with orders to destroy certain files and neutralize anyone who tries to stop him. Mumford is in talks to play his co-worker girlfriend. In other casting news, Rafe Spall (Anonymous) is in talks to topline I Give it a Year for writer/director Dan Mazer (Da Ali G Show). The rom-com follows a young married couple trying to stay together through their first year of marriage. Production is scheduled to begin in London this spring. »
