William H. Macy and more join Stealing Cars

20 November 2013 11:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Screen Daily, William H. Macy, Emory Cohen, Mike Epps, Felicity Huffman, John Leguizamo and Paul Sparks are joining the long-gestating indie feature Stealing Cars.  The premise is about " a rebellious teenager who is sent to juvenile prison and learns to forgive himself in the wake of a tragic car accident."

Those already cast include Heather Lind, Al Calderon, Leopold Manswell, Jeff Lima, Grace Van Patten, Deema Aitken, Chance Kelly, David Holmes, Craig Grant, Chris Caldovino, Volney Steffire, Chris Cenatiempo and Black Thought.  The movie is currently filming now in New York.

Initially I was very skeptical about this movie, as a few of the cast have a rocky track record (Mike Epps and John Leguizamo can be a kiss of death for a movie sometimes). But hearing the premise, this sounds like the sort of sweet independent movie that would attract this many actors and names.  I do »

Long-stalled ‘Stealing Cars’ Draws Emory Cohen, Mike Epps, Felicity Huffman

19 November 2013 3:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Emory Cohen (“Smash”), Mike Epps, Felicity Huffman, John Leguizamo, William H. Macy and Paul Sparks are starring in ensemble indie feature “Stealing Cars” — 14 years after development started.

The project is directed by documentary filmmaker Bradley Kaplan (“Muhammad and Larry”), making his narrative directorial debut. Shooting began recently in New York.

Rachel Winter and Dan Keston are producing. Steve Levinson and Mark Wahlberg are exec producing, along with Erika Hampson.

Winter is a producer on “Dallas Buyers Club,” a film that had been in development since the mid-1990s before going into production a year ago. She first read the “Stealing Cars” script in 1999.

“Stealing Cars,” inspired by true events, centers on a tragic car accident that sends a confident yet rebellious teen (played by Cohen) spiraling downward into the grim injustice of the juvenile penal system. The script was written by Will Aldis and Steve Mackall.

Also starring are Heather Lind, »

'Blue Bloods' Season 4, episode 6: Jamie and Danny are still 'Growing Boys' ... and troubled cops

2 November 2013 8:10 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

For one Reagan police brother, the problem was an ex-gang mamber. For the other, it was an ex-girlfriend.

Jamie (Will Estes) and Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) each had concerns in Friday's (Nov. 1) episode of CBS' "Blue Bloods," "Growing Boys," directed by former actor Eric Laneuville ("St. Elsewhere"). Jamie's problem involved a threat to his career, while Danny's posed a mild threat to his marriage.

Shooting hoops with former gang member Tomas (Jeff Lima) in the Juvenile Robbery Intervention Program initiated by Frank (Tom Selleck), Jamie was dismayed to see the youth hassled by some of his earlier comrades. The trouble escalated when Jamie witnessed Tomas being chased by the others, prompting him to give pursuit and yell, "Police!"

The chase ended tragically when one of the potential assailants ran into the path of a car that struck him, causing injuries that left the sudden victim possibly paralyzed from the waist down. »
