In Production: “The F Word,” “An Unkindness Of Ravens,” “Malavita” and “Mad Max: Fury Road”

“In Production” is a regular column which focuses on notable independent films that are currently shooting.

Daniel Radcliffe is stuck in the friend zone in Michael Dowse’s The F Word. Resuming his post-Harry Potter career, Radcliffe stars alongside Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks) in this romantic comedy about a young man who meets the love of his life only to discover that she is already spoken for — not the most uncommon circumstance. The cast also includes Rafe Spall (Prometheus), Megan Park (ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager) and the terrific Adam Driver (HBO’s Girls). Written by Elan Mastai (The Samaritan), The F Word is currently filming in Toronto, Canada, with David Gross (The Goon) producing and Entertainment One overseeing the project.

Amy Smart and Joshua Leonard Will Make ‘An Unkindness of Ravens’

  • The Film Stage
The Hollywood Reporter has informed us that Amy Smart and Joshua Leonard will be starring in the upcoming dark comedy, An Unkindness of Ravens. The project is written by Russell Friedenberg, with Randy Redroad taking lead as director. The comedy “concerns a group of friends whose lives are changed by their encounter with a strange nature photographer.” The pair will be playing a “troubled married couple hosting a group of friends at a Fourth of July weekend reunion.” Will McCormack will be playing the mysterious photographer, with Christian Campbell, Friedenberg, Victoria Smurfit rounding out the cast of friends. Natalie Imbruglia (yes, she acts too!), Calum Grant and Castille Landon have also been cast in various roles as well.

Although Smart and Leonard – who got his start in The Blair Witch Project – have had successful careers the past few years, I can’t really say that their presence in this film does little to excite.
