Rachel Griffiths to Make Feature Debut with Female-Led Horse-Racing Drama

Griffiths: Studio 10/YouTube

Oscar-nominated actress Rachel Griffiths is set to make her feature directorial debut. The “Brothers and Sisters” alumna is helming Teresa Palmer-starrer “Ride Like a Girl,” Deadline reports. Based on the story of Michelle Payne, the first female jockey to take home the esteemed Melbourne Cup, the drama is described by Griffiths as “‘Beauty And The Beast’ meets ‘Hacksaw Ridge.’”

Griffiths has been eager to step behind the camera for a long time, and discussed the prospect of directing with “Brothers & Sisters’” producers, but “just as I was getting there, I got pregnant for the third time and felt I wouldn’t be serving the show,” she recalled. She was inspired to make the leap after witnessing Payne make herstory in 2015. “It was an indescribable moment. Everyone remembers where they were during that race,” she explained. “I rang my producer and said, ‘We have to do this one.’ It tapped into so many things.”

The film follows Payne’s epic rise up against the odds. She was “always warned she could never be a world class jockey; not tough enough — not a man. But she fought for every opportunity to ride hard and race fast. Her father, Paddy (Sam Neill), and her family championed her ambition, despite early failures, broken bones, and a tragic family death on the racecourse,” Deadline writes.

“I’m having a moment where these stories are finding a place to land,” Griffiths said. “Women shouldn’t need permission to feel empowered to step up. In this moment I feel it, yeah, step up.”

The former “Six Feet Under” star previously helmed two shorts and three episodes of “Nowhere Boys,” an Australian series. She earned an Oscar nod in 1999 for “Hilary and Jackie.”

Other actresses with feature directorial debuts on the way include Kirsten Dunst and Carrie Brownstein. The former is helming an adaptation of Sylvia Plath’s “The Bell Jar” and the latter “Fairy Godmother,” a comedic revisionist take on the ubiquitous fairy tale character.

Rachel Griffiths to Make Feature Debut with Female-Led Horse-Racing Drama was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Harron on “Strombo”: YouTube

Mary Harron has a lot to celebrate. In a little over a week, “Alias Grace” — the Netflix miniseries she directed — will premiere. And in December Harron will receive the Creative Excellence Award at Women in Film & Television — Toronto’s (Wift-t) Crystal Awards, the annual celebration of women working in Canadian entertainment.

The prize “is presented to a woman in recognition of the dynamic quality of her work in screen-based media,” a Wift-t press release notes. In addition to features like “American Psycho,” “I Shot Andy Warhol,” and “The Moth Diaries,” Harron has previously helmed episodes of series such as “The L Word,” “Big Love,” and “Six Feet Under.”

Actress Tonya Williams (“The Young and the Restless”), screenwriter Karen Walton (“Orphan Black”), Guru Studio Evp Mary Bredin, and Digital Wizards prez Diane Williamson will also be honored at the Crystal Awards.

Williams is set to receive the Special Jury Award of Distinction, in recognition of her commitment to supporting diverse talent in Canada via Reelworld Film Festival, which she founded in 2001, and her production company, Wilbo Entertainment.

Walton will take home the Mentorship Award, which honors individuals who help women establish careers in screen-based media. The “Ginger Snaps” and “Queer as Folk” writer started inkcanada, a Facebook group for professional writers in Canada, in 2007.

The Outstanding Achievement in Business Award will go to Bredin for her leadership as an exec at Guru and, previously, at Nelvana, Telefilm Canada, Canal +, Pmmp, and Disney. And Williamson will receive the Digital Trailblazer Award for founding Digital Wizards Inc., where she also works as an executive producer.

“The Crystal Awards is the hallmark of Wift-t’s legacy,” said Heather Webb, the organization’s Executive Director. “For three decades, we’ve prioritized the recognition and celebration of women’s achievements; and the men who mentor, support, and advocate for women. Thirty years ago when women were rendered invisible in the industry, Wift-t led the way by illuminating the monumental contributions of women that significantly shape and advance Canada’s screen- based industry.”

Webb added, “These women have broken ground, demonstrated incredible visionary insight, and are an inspiration to their peers, audiences, and the next generation of women in the industry.”

The Crystal Awards Gala will be held December 5 in Toronto, Ontario. Event tickets will be sold on Wift-t’s website until November 20 or while quantities last.

One of the most distinctive voices of the independent film movement of the last 20 years, Mary Harron made her debut as a feature-film writer/director in 1996 with “I Shot Andy Warhol.” The film won star Lili Taylor a Special Jury Award at the Sundance Film Festival, and garnered Independent Spirit Award and London Film Critic Circle nominations for best first feature.

This week’s question: What is the saddest show? Which show makes you cry the most? (Old and current shows are all fair game.)

I just wrote something on this very topic! And I think these are two different questions. Which show makes me cry the most? In the balance across its entire series run? I think the answer has to be “Friday Night Lights.” I’m a sucker for underdog sports stories in general, but “Friday Night Lights” could make me cry in so many different ways, from what happens to Jason Street in the pilot to what Matt Saracen goes through in

Halloween 2017: Wtf: 10 Bonkers Movies to Watch on Shudder

  • DailyDead
As horror fans, we are constantly seeking out the new and the different. Because the genre is marked by so much sameness—sequels, franchises, remakes, copies of copies—it can sometimes be a challenge to find those horror films that truly carve out their own space. They don’t even have to be great movies, necessarily; many times, “different” is enough to make us happy.

With that in mind, here are 10 horror movies currently available on the terrific streaming service Shudder that are, if nothing else, different from almost anything else you’ll watch this October. They vary in quality from title to title, but what even the roughest among them lacks in technical polish, it more than makes up for in sheer maniac insanity. After you’ve cycled through all your favorites this October, why not add a little Wtf to your lineup?

The 28-year-old singer, whose real name is Alex Deleon and is best known as the former frontman for the band The Cab, just dropped his first single, "Six Feet Under," and its accompanying music video.

Jamie Lee Curtis to Star in, Co-Write, and Produce CBS Funeral Home Comedy

Six Feet Under” fans, take note: A new series about a family-run funeral business is in the works. Deadline reports that Jamie Lee Curtis has signed on to star, co-write, and executive produce “Quality of Life,” a multi-camera comedy that’s currently in development at CBS.

Described as a “multi-generational sitcom” about the family’s funeral home and “the unique perspective that growing up in a funeral home gives you,” the pilot will be co-written by Curtis and Janis Hirsch (“Will & Grace,” “Murphy Brown”).

While “Quality of Life” sounds like a lighter, more network-friendly take on the family biz than “Six Feet Under,” we can still expect some dark humor given its subject matter. It’s also great to see a series led by an actress who’s nearly 60 (Curtis is 58). As a recent study from the Center for the Study of Women in Television & Film reported, “Few characters of either sex age into their 60s and beyond.” In the 2016–17 season, just four percent of male characters and two percent of females were 60 or above on broadcast network series.

Curtis starred in Ryan Murphy’s “Scream Queens” from 2015–16. The comedic horror anthology series ran on Fox for two seasons before being cancelled. She earned an Emmy nod in 1998 for her role in “Nicholas’ Gift,” a TV movie.

Less than a week ago Curtis made headlines with the news that she’ll be returning to the “Halloween” franchise, reprising her iconic role as Laurie Strode. The latest installment of the horror series will bow October 19, 2018.

Jamie Lee Curtis to Star in, Co-Write, and Produce CBS Funeral Home Comedy was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Directors Guild of America Fines Jill Soloway, Amazon Over ‘I Love Dick’ Credits

Directors Guild of America Fines Jill Soloway, Amazon Over ‘I Love Dick’ Credits
The Directors Guild of America has leveled a six-figure fine against Amazon Studios and Jill Soloway over allegations of misconduct from directors on the “I Love Dick” series, sources have told Variety.

Representatives for the DGA, Amazon, and Soloway had no comment. A source told Variety that the directors complained that DGA rules had been violating as they did not receive credit for scenes they shot that subsequently appeared in other episodes. They also alleged that Soloway’s activities on the set had interfered with their jobs.

Soloway has extensive television credits as a producer, director, and writer dating back to “Six Feet Under,” “United States of Tara,” and “Grey’s Anatomy.” Soloway won the best director award at the Sundance Film Festival for the 2013 film “Afternoon Delight,” then won a DGA Award and two Emmys for episodes of “Transparent.”
