First Look: ‘Hunger Games’ Star Amandla Stenberg in ‘Everything, Everything’ (Watch)

14 February 2017 12:18 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A trailer has dropped for “Everything, Everything,” the first leading role for “The Hunger Games” alum Amandla Stenberg. Based on the book of the same name by Nicola Yoon, Stenberg plays a hermetic illness-struck 18-year-old, kept in her home by her mother (Anika Noni Rose), allegedly for her safety and health.

But, as shown in the trailer, it’s hard to keep a teenage girl from adventure and exploring. Stenberg’s Maddy falls in love with boy-next-door Olly, played by Nick Robinson, as he tempts her with stories and images of a world outside the confines of her home. They text and write notes, using Maddy’s home as a sort of playground for romance. When they finally meet face to face with no glass between them, Maddy realizes she doesn’t want to live in the bubble her mother has created.

Newswire: Aubrey Plaza to star in new film from director of The Greasy Strangler

8 February 2017 5:58 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Aubrey Plaza (alongside Emile Hirsch, Craig Robinson, Jemaine Clement, and Snuff Box’s Matt Berry) has signed on for a new film from Jim Hosking, the director whose gross-out debut The Greasy Strangler provoked a mixture of laughs and gags from critics last year. Hosking’s new feature, An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn, sounds just as strange, if slightly less obsessed with shoving disgusting sausages down audiences’ throats.

Plaza stars as Lulu Danger—no relation, presumably, to the illusive Janet Snakehole—whose boring marriage takes a “fortunate turn for the worse” when she’s invited to the titular show. Frankly, we have no idea what happens after that, but Hosking was apparently able to sell people on the film’s promise, given the number of big name comedy stars he’s drawn in for his second film.

Mia Wasikowska, Léa Seydoux, Aubrey Plaza, Eva Green & More Get New Roles

8 February 2017 12:38 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Following up his harrowing debut Eyes of My Mother, according to Variety, director Nicolas Pesce has just finished wrapping his new film Piercing with stars Mia Wasikowska and Christopher Abbott (James White). An adaptation of Ryu Mirakami’s novel, the film follows Abbott’s crazed protagonist who plans on murdering an unsuspecting call girl at a hotel. Unfortunately for him, he becomes allured by the mysterious woman who shows up (Wasikowska), which starts a dangerous game of chance and chase. Mirakami’s works are often dense and psychological, and it will be interesting to see how Pesce handles the material.

In more adaptation news, Léa Seydoux has joined Colin Firth and Matthias Schoenaerts in a film based on the book Kursk, which tells of the gripping real-life events of a Russian submarine disaster, according to Screen Daily. Helmed by director Thomas Vinterberg (The Hunt), Kursk is penned by Robert Rodal »

The Crane men spend the better part of the episode arguing in a dreamlike courtroom over whether or not Ichabod should be found guilty for Abbie’s death. And while I’ll »

Early Casting Cuts Through Pilot Season Clutter

27 January 2017 4:02 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Felicity Huffman, Courtney B. Vance, Zach Braff, Reba McEntire, Alan Cumming, Mark Feuerstein, Craig Robinson, and Adam Scott.

These actors all signed onto network TV projects before pilot pickups — and now, their pilots have in fact all been given the green light.

This development season saw a growing trend of casting stars well before pilot season began, giving the potential series a leg up against the hefty competition.

While certain projects have always been developed specifically for a star, the bulk of TV shows are typically put into development without talent, then greenlit to pilot and then casting begins. But for the 2017-2018 season, studios were strategic in attaching more actors than ever before to projects in the midst of the development cycle.

Now at the halfway point of pilot season, some of the first pilots to be picked up were McEntire’s ABC series with Marc Cherry, Feuerstein’s CBS comedy “9J, 9K »
