First Image From Last Days In The Desert Features Ewan McGregor as Jesus In Exile

10 December 2014 3:07 PM, PST | | See recent news »

While absent from all of the big Sundance updates we were posting earlier this week, director Rodrigo Garcia's new film Last Days In the Desert will indeed be playing the festival next month.  Starring Ewan McGregor as Jesus, this film is bound to pick up the usual dust that accompanies movies that address this topic without self-identifying as "faith based."  What looks unimpeachable, however,  is the visual aesthetic of the film, which was shot by Emmanuel Lubezki. Hit the jump for a better look at the Last Days In the Desert image of Ewan McGregor as Jesus.  The film also stars Tye Sheridan, Ciarán Hinds, and Ayelet Zurer.  It premieres on January 25th at 6:30Pm at the Eccles Theater as part of Sundance 2015. Here's the official synopsis for Last Days In the Desert: Ewan McGregor is Jesus -- and the Devil -- in an imagined chapter from »

Cassian Elwes, Black List Pick Newbie Scribe To Mentor At Sundance 2015

10 December 2014 1:34 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: The Butler producer Cassian Elwes and the Black List have chosen Mike Harden to receive the Cassian Elwes Independent Screenwriting Fellowship in the award’s second year of making Hollywood dreams come true. The Cinderella honor grants a worthy new (and agent-less) voice in screenwriting with a whirlwind trip to the Sundance Film Festival under the mentorship of indie film veteran Elwes and the Black List staff.

Eligible writers can’t have earned more than $5,000 to date from their projects, and Harden fits the bill: The East Bridgewater, Massachusetts native was working as a part-time real estate agent, in the shipping department of a wholesale retailer, and writing corporate videos and small films while building his writing career on the side. He landed on the Black List’s radar with his script A Good Man, a violent crime thriller set in Brockton, Mass. A Good Man was one of »

This list is in alphabetical order.

Only Lovers Left Alive (voted by Rick)

Only Lovers Left Alive, the latest film from cult indie director Jim Jarmusch, stars Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton as Adam and Eve, two century old vampires. Adam is an underground musician with a dedicated cult following. In his past time, he drives through the city in his classic Jaguar, collects music memorabilia, photographs, books, vintage musical instruments and old vinyls. He lives in an isolated home in the ruins of Detroit Michigan where he reunites with his enigmatic lover Eve. There, he enlists the help of one of his most dedicated fans (Anton Yelchin) to help collect the analog equipment he needs, and his doctor (Jeffrey Wright) to provide him with a steady supply of his favourite drink, type O-negative. Immortality is weighing on him and thoughts of suicide slowly take over. Not much happens, and not much needs to. »
