Music Biz Satire ‘Kill Your Friends’ Starts to Shoot in London

10 March 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Satirical comedy “Kill Your Friends,” about the era of Britpop music, has started lensing in London for a five-week shoot.

Pic is set in London in 1997, when the British music industry is on a winning streak. A&R man Steven Stelfox is slashing and burning his way through the biz. Fuelled by greed, ambition and drugs, he lives the dream, as he searches for the next hit. But as the hits dry up and the industry begins to change, he takes the concept of “killer tunes” to a murderous new level.

Screenplay is penned by John Niven, based on his cult novel. Pic is the feature debut for director Owen Harris, whose previous credits include TV series “Misfits.”

Nicholas Hoult (“X-Men: First Class,” “Jack the Giant Slayer”) takes the lead role of Stelfox, and is joined by an ensemble cast that includes Craig Roberts (“22 Jump Street,” “Submarine”), Tom Riley (“Da Vinci’s Demons, »

Filming Begins On ‘Kill Your Friends’ Starring Nicholas Hoult & Craig Roberts

8 March 2014 2:50 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Thn have received the news from AI Film, Altitude Film Entertainment, Unigram, Pinewood Productions, and World’s End (that’s a lot isn’t it?) as they announce that the principal photography begins next week on dark and satirical comedy Kill Your Friends about the infamous era of Britpop music with Warner Music Group on board to produce the film’s soundtrack.

That era is exactly when I spent my time going to gigs, fighting my corner for the likes of Pulp and Blur (and then equally Oasis) – so this is right up my alley. This the first-time feature for Owen Harris who’s been working in TV but with good titles including Misfits, Secret Diary of a Call Girl and Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror.

It’s written by John Niven and based on his cult novel of the same name, Nicholas Houlttakes the lead role of Steven Stelfox »

'Spinal Tap' Cast: Where Are They Now? (Photos)

1 March 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

When "This Is Spinal Tap" opened on March 2, 1984, it made a modest $4.7 million, but the cast and crew behind this "rockumentary" likely had no idea what an oft-quoted, cultural touchstone it would become. ("This one goes to 11.")

At the time, maybe the send-up of big-hair heavy metal bands was too close to reality, and many moviegoers thought Spinal Tap was a real band. Actually, the film did have a soundtrack (with such classics as "Sex Farm Woman") since the comic geniuses of Spinal Tap wrote and performed their own songs. They even took the group on the road in 2009 for the film's 25th anniversary and even opened up for themselves as their other musical persona, The Folksmen from Spinal Tap's folk sequel of sorts, "A Mighty Wind."

The clueless hard rockers -- Michael McKean (as lead singer David St. Hubbins), Christopher Guest (as tongue-flicking guitarist Nigel Tufnel) and Harry Shearer »

The 15 Best Oscar-Losing Songs (Of The Past 50 Years)

28 January 2014 9:34 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

The Academy Award for Best Original Song has gone to some legendary movie anthems — “The Way We Were,” “Take My Breath Away,” “Beauty and the Beast,” and “My Heart Will Go On” all notched the Oscars’ highest musical honor. But what about the anthems that don’t win? The winners among the losing nominees? Today we honor the best losing songs of the past 50 years since some of them are, um, the greatest songs ever. (I’ve limited this tally to the past half-century since the rock & roll era is what we really care about, no?)

15. “I Have Nothing” from The Bodyguard

Lost to: “A Whole New World” from Aladdin

Two songs from The Bodyguard‘s soundtrack were nominated for Oscars (this and “Run to You”) but “I Have Nothing” is a decade-best belter that will live on forever in part thanks to its innumerable American Idol performances. Though Whitney Houston »

Inside Llewyn Davis – review

25 January 2014 5:30 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Coens' tale of a of a once feted folk singer on the slide has brilliant elements that don't quite make a satisfying whole

"How does it feel, to be on your own… Like a complete unknown… ?" Llewyn Davis knows exactly how that feels. Dragging his self-pitying butt around the freezing backstreets of early 1960s Greenwich Village, he is indeed "without a home", a formerly feted singer who made his name as one half of a popular duo until his partner threw himself to an early death, a result, perhaps, of spending too much time with Llewyn. He's an arsehole and everyone tells him so – from fellow folk singer Jean (Carey Mulligan), who is pregnant with his child and wants money for an abortion, to John Goodman's aggressive jazz fiend who callously mocks Davis's former partner's suicide ("You throw yourself of the Brooklyn bridge, traditionally. George Washington bridge? Who does that? »
