Farmiga plays a grieving daughter who finds herself trapped inside one of the films of her late 1980s scream queen mother (Akerman).
Reunited, the pair join forces against a killer haunting the film world.
A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas director Strauss-Schulson was first reported to be attached to The Final Girls in 2011.
Akerman has most recently been starring in the television show Trophy Wife.
Mark Fortin and Josh Miller wrote the screenplay. The story follows the grieving teenage daughter of an 80s scream queen. The young woman and her friends are sucked into her mother's most famous horror movie, where the two are reunited and must battle one of the decade's deadliest serial killers together.
Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions have picked 'Final Girls', a long forgotten horror-comedy project that's been sitting about kicking its heels for nigh on 3 years. Now as the project moves into pre-production a couple of hotties have been given the task of filling two of the main roles. They are namely Malin Akerman -below ('Watchmen', 'Rock of Ages') and Taissa Farmiga ('American Horror Story'). The premise of the movie will find a teenage girl and her friends getting sucked into the '80s slasher film that her mother starred in. Director Todd Strauss-Schulson ('A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas') is set to helm for the production that will kick off in Louisiana this April. He'll be directing from a script by writing duo Mark Fortin and Josh Miller. »
The last time we reported on The Final Girls was back in 2011. That was when Todd Strauss-Schulson, the director of A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas , was attached to the project for New Line. The story, from screenwriters Mark Fortin and Josh Miller, found a teenage girl and her friends sucked into the '80s slasher film that her mother starred in. It sounded like a fun premise that can bring two generations of horror together and it also opens the door to seeing a cool slasher back on the screen. Alas, things went quiet on the project, until now. Screen Daily says Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has picked up the project and Malin Akerman ( Watchmen ) and Taissa Farmiga ("American Horror Story: Coven") will star. We're going to guess Farmiga is the »

“American Horror Story” has made its mark as an anthology series. Each new season presents an entirely new setting with entirely new characters and a change to the name that gives DVRs fits.
This season, of course, American Horror Story decided to tackle the subject of witches. Coven is set in New Orleans. The story threads through three primary time periods, the 1830s, the 1970s, and the present day. Each of those distinct times has bearing on the current story, often in more immediate ways than you might think.
“American Horror Story: Coven” has kept Sarah Paulson, Jessica Lange, Lily Rabe, Evan Peters, and Frances Conroy just like the previous two seasons. Taissa Farmiga, Denis O’Hare, and Jamie Brewer are also familiar faces to anyone who has been following the show. While you might suspect that having a constant cast might get boring, the material and the characters are »
Academy Award nominee Andy Garcia flexes his comedic chops with Vera Farmiga in At Middleton, a light-hearted romance directed by Adam Rodgers about two people who fall in love while taking a college tour with their kids. When straight-laced George (Garcia) meets free-spirited Edith (Farmiga) at the idyllic Middleton College, the two unexpectedly hit it off and decide to ditch the official tour for a carefree adventure of their own. What begins as an afternoon of fun soon becomes a revealing and enlightening experience for both of them. Now in theaters, the film also stars Taissa Farmiga, Spencer Lofranco, Peter Riegert and Tom Skerritt. In an exclusive interview backstage at the Queen Latifah Show where Garcia was promoting his new film, he talked about how he fell in love with the beautifully written script, his producing partnership with Glenn German, the film’s financing, being directed by Rodgers, working with »

Chicago – Since the world has been clamoring for a film about high school seniors touring a liberal arts college, “At Middleton” fills the bill, and throws in a symbolic midlife liaison between characters portrayed by Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga, tripping across their own “life campus.”
The set-up of the story is better than the result of that set up. Andy Garcia plays against his hunky type as a repressed physician who is desperate to have his son go to Middleton College. Vera Farmiga’s character is more flaky, the motivator to get herself and the good doctor off the beaten path. When they get together, they change each other in odd ways, that doesn’t allow for a natural relationship to develop. It’s as if writer/director Adam Rodgers walked around the college, and made up stuff for his characters to do based on how the campus is laid out, »

At Middleton is a modest movie with modest aims, but at times it feels like a small miracle. A daylong romance starring Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga as two parents who meet cute while their kids tour the same small college, it takes a relatively undistinguished premise and sets itself apart with details that ring true. It’s all fairly predictable enough. Edith (Farmiga) and George (Garcia) meet as they try for the same parking spot on the grounds of the titular, pastoral liberal arts institution; he’s the type who backs into a parking spot, while she’s the type who rolls in without looking to see if anyone else got there first. Their kids, of course, are immediately embarrassed. George’s son Conrad (Spencer Lofranco) is a jockish type who thinks dad’s a total square, and Edith’s daughter Audrey (Taissa Farmiga, Vera’s sister) is an »

Directed by Adam Rodgers
The new drama At Middleton appears to be both for and created by the stereotypical teenager’s worst nightmare, their stereotypically embarrassing parents. Andy Garcia (who co-produced) and Vera Farmiga, in their best moments, have a decent enough chemistry, but for some strange reason, the script steers away from being something like a collegiate-themed Before Midnight and instead clutters the action with various vignettes that run the gamut from cloying and sentimental to downright painful. At best, this film is pleasantly familiar, but these moments are few and far between.
Garcia is George, an uptight heart surgeon bringing his son Conrad to Middleton College for an admissions tour. Farmiga is the flighty and more carefree Edith, bringing her daughter Audrey (Taissa Farmiga, Vera Farmiga’s sister in real life, which makes this an odd bit of casting) to the same tour. »

'American Horror Story' Spoilers
Jessica Lange, who’s been front and center in American Horror Story’s first three seasons, will be back for a third. In fact, she’s already been cast in the role of a “Marlene Dietrich figure” in the season’s 1950s setting.
Murphy told fans weeks ago that the last few episodes provided clues for what’s to come in Ahs’s next season – as does the decade it will be set in. “If you look historically what happened in the year 1950, there’s some more clues in that year,” Murphy told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s a period piece. We try and do the opposite of what we’ve done before.”

Well here we are, kids: the finale of the third season of American Horror Story, television’s high-gloss realization of Ryan Murphy‘s therapy bills. Who would have thought that what at the start appeared to be nothing more than a campy parade of haute couture and casual racism would turn out to be a gorgeously shot, utterly incomprehensible parade of haute couture and casual racism? Still, despite the season’s narrative fumbles, abandoned plot threads and Axemen, I still had a pretty damned good time. To quote Ahs head writer William Shakespeare: “Coven was a tale told by a maniac shoe-fetishist, full of sound and fury, signifying minotaur sex.”
Let’s give this Wonder Wheel a spin, eh?

And so the third American Horror Story has come to an end. The final episode of Coven crowned a new Supreme and significantly increased the season’s already-impressive body count. Co-creator Ryan Murphy tells EW’s Tim Stack that he’s already working on the fourth iteration of Ahs — not to mention making plans for a fifth. And why not? Coven was the highest rated edition of the series yet. It also expanded the Ahs repertory, with Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett devouring city-sized scenery in precisely the kind of larger-than-life roles they haven’t been getting from movies: You »

We all love ‘American Horror Story’ but let’s face it — at some point this year, ‘Coven’ just lost us. I’m not sure whether it was the endless resurrections, the stunt casting, the ever-changing rules of the show’s universe, or all of the above, but one thing has become abundantly clear — something’s gotta change if the show wants to return to its ‘Asylum’-level glory.
American Horror Story has become famous for its A-List celebrity roster, its refusal to back away from tough issues, its unforgettable imagery and, of course, Jessica Lange. However, something was a bit.. off… about the show’s third season, Coven.
