Interview: 'Faults' Director Riley Stearns Talks Cults, Facts Stranger Than Fiction, and More

30 June 2015 7:40 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

There have been a few movies about cults in recent years, but none quite as smart and funny and weird and disarming as Riley Stearns superb directorial debut, Faults. In it Leland Orser plays a man who specializes in deprogramming victims of cult brainwashing. He's seen better days and is having a rough go of things until he encounters a set of parents who want to hire him to deprogram their daughter, played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Once those two meet, however, things get... strange. Faults is out now on Video on Demand and is even a $.99 rental this week on iTunes, which is a heck of a great deal for a great movie. And that gives me a great excuse to finally publish an interview I did with Stearns earlier this year. In it we talk about other cult movies, what it's...

Daniel Radcliffe Recruited For Surreal Indie Swiss Army Man

29 June 2015 5:20 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Despite all his years of dealing with spells, spooks, strange creatures and Snape, Daniel Radcliffe might not be ready for the surreality of his next project. He, alongside Paul Dano and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, is all aboard Swiss Army Man.So far, so relatively routine, you might think.

The story follows what happens when a hopeless man struggling through a wilderness meets and befriends a dead body. Together, the pair undertakes a weird journey to get home. Told you it was odd. But then, we suppose Radcliffe actually does have the experience to deal with this one. Quite how he and the rest of the cast fit into the story has yet to be revealed, but the Daniels developed the film at the Sundance lab, »

No word yet on who is playing what but I'm going go with Dano as the man, Radcliffe as the "dead guy," with Winstead as someone who has to deal with these two.

PBS’ New Season Will Feature Walt Disney Documentary, Civil War Drama ‘Mercy Street’

3 June 2015 9:01 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

PBS this coming TV season will boast an unvarnished look at entertainment entrepreneur Walt Disney, a revival of Ken Burns epic documentary “The Civil War” and something that has been a rarity on the network in recent years: a drama financed by PBS set in America.

The network best known these days for pickups of British productions like “Downton Abbey” and “Call the Midwife” will in January debut “Mercy Street,” a six-part Civil War epic that is produced by Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions and is the first American drama to air on PBS in more than a decade. Such stuff “is expensive,” noted Beth Hoppe, chief programming executive and general manager of general audience programming at PBS, in an interview, but the network expects to monetize the product through international distribution. Josh Radnor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are among the members of the show’s cast.

I sit down with Anonymous Content veteran manager Michael Sugar, who handles the careers of Joe Wright, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Winona Ryder, Richard Linklater, Marc Webb, Gavin Hood, Patty Jenkins, Scott BurnsCary Fukunaga and Steven Soderbergh, among others. HBO's 2014 drama series "True Detective," entirely directed by Fukunaga, won three Emmys including director, and now has a second season coming up with new directors and a new cast.
