Written by Jim Beggarly (The Kitchen), and produced by Eben Kostbar and Joseph McKelheer for Film Harvest, the film tells the story of a law-school dropout who fills in as a server at her friend's ice cream truck, doling out free samples to locals and oddball friends alike, including a man courting her who she barely remembers from the night before. »

It's been a long time since filmmaker Eli Roth's last directorial effort, but the hiatus is officially over — and judging by the title alone, the results are bound to be explosive.
The Hollywood Reporter has the news out of Cannes that Roth's next slated to direct "The Green Inferno," a horror thriller about... well, we don't know, actually. The story is being kept a secret for now, but Roth's certainly enthusiastic about his top-secret plans.
"I've had an amazing few years producing, writing and acting, and am very excited to get back in the director's chair. I've been working on this idea for several years, and was inspired by filming in [Chile] and cannot wait to get back," he said in a statement, referring to his recent experience shooting the movie "Aftershock" in South America.

The lead love interest for Richard Lagravenese's "Beautiful Creatures" — an adaptation of the young adult supernatural romance novel (also a series) by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl — has been replaced. Jack O'Connell has left the project due to scheduling conflicts, and Alden Ehrenreich is stepping in.
The "Twixt" and "Tetro" actor will be starring as Ethan — in love with local girl Lena. Both teens uncover dark secrets about their families and the town they live in. Ethan also happens to have a nasty ex-girlfriend, who enacts some "Mean Girls-style" revenge against Lena. We previously reported that Jeremy Irons is also starring in the film, along with Viola Davis, Emma Thompson, Thomas Mann, and Emmy Rossum. Are you in the mood for a supernatural star-crossed lovers story, or have you had your fill of all things "Twilight-esque" for a while?

Title: The End of Love Director: Mark Webber Cast: Mark Webber, Issac Love, Shannyn Sossamon, Michael Cera, Jason Ritter, Amanda Seyfried, Aubrey Plaza, Jocelin Donahue and Smyth Campbell Reviewed by @Rudie_Obias During the Sundance Film Festival, there are a lot of mopey, twenty to thirty-something men trying to come to terms or deal with their current or past relationships. I try to take these movies as they come and try my hardest not put them in a corner. Sometimes they work wonderfully, take Mike Birbiglia “Sleepwalk With Me,” and sometimes they don’t at all, take Paul Dano in “For Ellen.” In the directorial debut of actor Mark Webber, “The End »

Tribeca Alum Ti West knows how to pick his leading ladies: Vanessa Horneff in The Roost; Jocelin Donahue in The House of the Devil; and now, Sara Paxton in The Innkeepers. Sara Paxton, a budding veteran of the genre, really comes into her own as Claire, an adorable, gawky and neurotic slacker, whose boredom and obsession with ghosts - to put it mildly - lead to eerie and perilous consequences. She appears in almost every shot of the film, and it is through her point of view that the audience enters the realm of the paranormal. Paxton's electric turn in The Innkeepers is not her first foray into the horror genre. Her role as Mari, the battered heroine of the 2009 remake of The Last House on the Left, proved that she has the chops to become a series genre actress. In The Innkeepers, her doe-eyed beauty contrasts starkly with the »

In The End of Love director and actor Mark Webber creates a reality steeped in grief. At the center of the story is Mark (played by Webber) who has become a full time dad in the face of his girlfriend’s untimely death. His love and affection for his son, played by Webber’s real life toddler feels genuine. This is a film that is improvised but has the feel of a written script in that the dialogue is often very compact, funny and poignant. Perhaps there isn’t anything that could be written for a child of this age that wouldn’t feel forced or counterfeit. Webber and son’s back and force wavers between love and frustration. The character has no one to share this burden or joy with.
It’s the desperation that stems »
