James Franco Used Tommy Wiseau’s Voice While Directing ‘The Disaster Artist’ — Literally
James Franco is a man of many interests and inclinations. Among his various pet projects — the advanced degrees, the literary adaptations that no one asked for and no one watched — few seem better suited to his sensibilities than “The Disaster Artist,” a dramatization of the making of Tommy Wiseau’s “The Room.” A hilarious detail about the film just emerged from an interview with one of its stars: “Franco directed the whole movie in character as Tommy Wiseau.”

‘Long Strange Trip’ Gets Box Office Boost from Deadheads

‘Long Strange Trip’ Gets Box Office Boost from Deadheads
This Memorial Day weekend at the specialty box office is dominated by niche releases without much crossover theatrical appeal, often available for home viewing. The strongest performer: Sundance entry “Long Strange Trip: The Untold Story of the Grateful Dead” (Abramorama), which opened in two cities, combining Thursday night event shows and full-week dates to overcome its four-hour running time.

While “The Tree of Life,” “Moonrise Kingdom” and “Before Midnight” all opened on this date, since 2013 top distributors have chosen not to launch major releases over the three-day holiday.

June will bring some top releases to flesh out a slow schedule, including Sofia Coppola’s Cannes success “The Beguiled” (Focus Features). Cannes competition films from Bong Joon Ho (“Okja”) and Noah Baumbach (“The Meyerowitz Stories”) will hit Netflix and select day-and-date theaters in June, and sometime after that, respectively.

Kelly Carmichael to Head Production & Development for Jessica Chastain’s Freckle Films

Jessica Chastain in “The Zookeeper’s Wife”

Consider us pleasantly unsurprised. Jessica Chastain’s production company, Freckle Films, has hired a female president of production and development: former Weinstein Company and Miramax production exec Kelly Carmichael. Deadline broke the news. “In her new role she will oversee the New York-based production and development company’s original slate with a focus on nurturing and supporting female talent across all aspects of production,” the source writes.

Carmichael is the co-founder of indie film and TV production company 375 Pictures. Currently overseeing production on Benedict Cumberbatch-starrer “The Current War” and Bryan Cranston-starrer “Untouchables,” her previous producing credits include “My Week with Marilyn” and “The Nanny Diaries.” Carmichael most recently served as head of production at Ivanhoe Pictures.

Chastain is a long-time advocate of women in film, both on-screen and behind the scenes. She recently penned an essay on Hollywood’s wage gap, and has been very outspoken about the industry’s sexist attitudes. She launched Freckle Films in February 2016 in order to develop female-driven material. The “Miss Sloane” actress has gone public with her goal to work with a female filmmaker every year. “They’re not given the same opportunities, so if I have any influence in choosing a film or a script or finding a director, I’m absolutely going to make a difference,” she said. The two-time Oscar nominee also serves on the advisory committee of We Do It Together, a nonprofit production company dedicated to financing and producing media content that empowers women.

Deadline writes that Freckle Film’s launch “came with a first-look overhead deal with Trudie Styler and Celine Rattray’s Maven Pictures. Among the projects in the works from that partnership is ‘The Magician’s Lie’ by Greer Macallister, being adapted by ‘Mr. Holmes’ scribe Jeffrey Hatcher, about a renowned female illusionist who must clear her name when she’s accused of murder; and ‘Life And Other Near Death Experiences,’ based on the book by Camilla Pagan, being adapted by Laura Terruso (‘Hello My Name Is Doris’) with Patricia Riggen (‘The 33’) attached to direct. That one centers on a newly single woman, whose husband has come out of the closet, [when she] receives an aggressive cancer diagnosis and heads to the Caribbean in an attempt to rediscover herself.”

Other projects being developed at Freckle Films include an adaptation of Nancy Horan’s “Loving Frank,” a portrait of the doomed love affair between translator Mamah Borthwick Cheney and architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and a film inspired by the Black Mambas, an all-female anti-poaching unit in South Africa.

You can catch Chastain in Niki Caro’s “The Zookeeper’s Wife,” now in theaters. The drama is based on a true story and centers on zookeepers who saved hundreds of lives during the Holocaust.

Kelly Carmichael to Head Production & Development for Jessica Chastain’s Freckle Films was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

The Lrm Interview with Hidden Figures Director Theodore Melfi

  • LRM Online
One of the nicer surprises of the year is Hidden Figures, the inspirational true story of three African-American women working at Langley as “computers” (i.e. mathematical experts) during the early ‘60s helped get the first American into orbit around the earth.

Taraji P. Henson plays Katherine Johnson, a math whiz from an early age whose knowledge of analytical geometry puts her in the coveted position of working with the top scientists and engineers at Langley on the Mercury project. Octavia Spencer is Dorothy Vaughan, who runs the West Computing group where all the colored women work, but who sees the opportunity to advance her place as Langley brings in the first Ibm computer. Singer Janelle Monae plays Mary Jackson, a woman who would make a great engineer at Langley, but she would have to take classes at an all-white school where they don’t even normally accept women students.
