Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #181. Lenny Abrahamson’s Frank

4 February 2014 9:05 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »


Director: Lenny Abrahamson

Writers: Jon Ronson and Peter Straughan

Producers: Ed Guiney, David Barron, Stevie Lee

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Michael Fassbender, Domhnall Gleeson, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Scoot McNairy

Judging by the mixed response (with some critics calling this out as the best of the fest) it received at Sundance, Irish helmer Lenny Abrahamson’s offbeat comedy/fourth film will have a healthy festival future and as one critic told me, despite being an oddity can self-market itself. Look for Frank to outpace his first trio of films Garage, Adam & Paul and What Richard Did combined.

Gist: Jon, a young wanna-be musician, discovers he’s bitten off more than he can chew when he joins an eccentric pop band led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank.

Release Date: This received its world premiere debut at the Sundance film festival and should be picked up for distribution fairly soon. »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #182. Christopher Dillon Quinn’s Eating Animals

4 February 2014 8:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Eating Animals

Director: Christopher Dillon Quinn

Producers: Natalie Portman, Christopher Dillon Quinn and Jonathan Safran Foer

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

He landed on the docu-scene with 2006′s Sundance Grand Jury Prize/Audience Award winning God Grew Tired of Us and if Christopher Dillon Quinn adds more “bite” to the book to docu film adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals, then we’ll have a stronger discourse/kitchen table conversation about the wrongs of the farming industry and the rights of anti-Super Size Me plant-based diet. Sir Paul McCarthy is among the talking heads found in the docu.

Gist: Based on the New York Times best-selling book by Jonathan Safran Foer, this will explore the realities of contemporary animal agriculture alongside the complexities of food ethics and is an examination of our dietary choices and the food we put in our bodies.

Release Date: At this point, »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #183. J. Davis’ Manson Family Vacation

4 February 2014 7:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Manson Family Vacation

Director: J. Davis

Writer(s): J. Davis

Producer(s): Steve Bannatyne, Eric Blyler, J. Davis, J.M. Logan, Josh Polon, Alexandra Sandler

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Jay Duplass, Linas Phillips, Leonora Pitts

Among the newbie additions to the extended family of collaborators and conspirators related to the Duplass Bros., J. Davis’ previous cred was as the Kevin – the Jay Duplass directed short docu project. Davis and Duplass re-team on a funny bone project that could easily target next year’s Sundance-sxsw festivals as it has the girth of a film that was helped out with kickstarter coin and without much else (see co-star Bass Ackwards‘ creator Linas Phillips speak from the heart). on paper, the sharply titled Manson Family Vacation is the sort of perfect trifecta indie comedy as it includes: a. modes of transportation, b. confused souls in unique backdrops and c. family bonding. »
