‘Jackie Brown’ at 20: Pam Grier Has a Better Idea for an Ending

‘Jackie Brown’ at 20: Pam Grier Has a Better Idea for an Ending
Quentin Tarantino’s acclaimed crime thriller “Jackie Brown,” which celebrates its 20th anniversary on Christmas Day, was the filmmaker’s valentine to stars Pam Grier and Robert Forster.

Grier came to fame as the groundbreaking female action superstar of such Blaxploitation films as 1973’s “Coffy” and 1974’s “Foxy Brown.” Though Grier continued working in film and television, she hadn’t had a meaty leading film role since the demise of the genre.

Forster, who starred in such classics as Haskell Wexler’s 1969’s “Medium Cool,” was primarily doing “B” films and didn’t even have a manager or an agent when “Jackie Brown” came along.

Both veteran actors found their careers revitalized by the film. Grier earned a Golden Globe nomination for “Jackie Brown” and since has appeared in such TV series as Showtime’s acclaimed “The L Word” and films including “Larry Crowne,” and published her autobiography. Forster received a supporting actor nom as bail bondsman

CAA Pledges 50–50 Gender Parity by 2020, Begins Defense Fund for Harassment Cases

CAA ignored Mia Kirshner’s complaints about Harvey Weinstein: “The L Word

Creative Artists Agency (CAA) is turning over a new leaf after last week’s New York Times story. According to the exposé about Harvey Weinstein’s wide-reaching network of allies and protectors, at least eight CAA agents were informed of Weinstein’s pattern of sexual misconduct but continued to schedule private hotel meetings between the mogul and their clients. Now, per The Hollywood Reporter, CAA has vowed to become part of the solution instead of the problem.

The talent agency has joined ICM in pledging 50–50 gender parity by 2020. CAA has also cancelled its annual Golden Globes party and will instead use that money to set up a legal defense fund for sexual harassment cases. The fund will support harassment victims in all workplaces, not just those in show business.

The drama sees William, Elizabeth, and Olive fighting to bring the powerful heroine to the masses — and fighting for their right to have an unconventional relationship despite intense social pressure and judgment.

The 20 Best Film Directors Who Came to TV in the 21st Century

  • Indiewire
The 20 Best Film Directors Who Came to TV in the 21st Century
While in recent years we’ve seen plenty of crossover between the film and television worlds, there have been a number of film directors whose engagement with this quasi-new medium has been truly groundbreaking, as they’ve found TV to be a far more creatively satisfying place than film. Thus, while they still may actively work in film from time to time, their TV efforts have proved unforgettable.

For the record, because we limited this to the 21st century, directors Nicole Holocenfer, Mimi Leder, David Lynch, and Tommy Schlamme were ineligible. But their accomplishments cannot be undersold.

Susanne Bier

Oscar winner Susanne Bier made her American television debut with the stylish and sexy John le Carré miniseries “The Night Manager.” Unlike Tomas Alfredson’s barren aesthetic for the Carré film “Tinker Tailor Solider Spy,” Bier opted instead to bring a golden-hued sensuality to nearly every frame of her Carré vision.

Bronwen Hughes on Providing ‘Hard Evidence’ Women Deserve to Direct More Movies (Guest Blog)
I met Bronwen Hughes (director of “Forces of Nature,” “Harriet the Spy” and “Stander,” as well as episodes of “The L Word” and “Breaking Bad”) on a video call, while she was in Atlanta shooting a TV series. The focus of our conversation was her latest movie, “The Journey Is the Destination,” now streaming on Netflix. The film recounts the true story of Dan Eldon (Ben Schnetzer), who was an incredible artist and a brave, socially active photographer who traveled the world. He died at only 22, in Somalia. However, it feels like he lived more than many other people. Also Read:.

“Empire” Showrunner Ilene Chaiken Has Two Women-Centric Shows in the Works at Fox

Ilene Chaiken: Entertainment Weekly/YouTube

Ilene Chaiken is putting the contract she re-upped this summer to good use. The “Empire” showrunner, writer, and Ep is penning two new series for Fox, The Hollywood Reporter confirms. One is a medical drama with a script plus significant penalty commitment that’s being compared to “This Is Us,” and the other follows an FBI agent and has a put pilot commitment.

“Triage,” the medical drama, “follows two women’s lives during three distinct periods: in 2008, when they’re surgery interns at Stanford, and in 2018 and 2028, as they explore cutting-edge medical techniques and face both professional and personal challenges,” THR summarizes. “But despite many obstacles, their epic friendship is the one constant in each other’s lives they can count on.”

Chaiken is adapting “Triage” from consulting producer David Cornue’s material. She will also exec produce alongside Jenna Santoianni, Courtney Hazlett, Tom Lesinski, David Ellender, and Steven Marrs. Sonar Entertainment and OutEast Entertainment are producing with 20th Century Fox TV.

The other series, “Mrs. Otis Regrets,” “centers on FBI Special Agent Clementine Otis — wife, mother, patriot — who is in the midst of investigating a domestic terrorism threat when an affair with a prominent government official shatters her life and career at the Bureau. While her former lover endures little blowback from the revelation, Otis is publicly shamed and loses her job, her reputation, her credibility, potentially her family, and even her access to the one person that could help her thwart a huge violent incident.”

Chaiken created “Mrs. Otis Regrets” with Melissa Scrivner-Love (“Person of Interest”). Both will Ep the series with the woman who inspired “Scandal,” Judy Smith. 20th TV is producing.

Best known as the creator of “The L Word,” Chaiken also exec produced, wrote for, and occasionally directed the pioneering Showtime series about a tight-knit group of lesbians in Los Angeles. She’s also set to Ep the “L Word” reboot that’s in the works.

Chaiken penned the original script for “The Handmaid’s Tale” for Showtime. The adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel ended up going to Hulu, and Bruce Miller rewrote the script and took on showrunning duties. Chaiken is still credited as an executive producer on the critically-acclaimed feminist series but is not directly involved in its creative development.

Reality showThe Real L Word: Los Angeles,” Showtime doc “L Word Mississippi: Hate the Sin,” and ABC drama“Black Box” are among Chaiken’s other credits.

Season 4 of “Empire” airs Wednesdays on Fox.

8 Lgbt Filmmakers Who Are Having a Great Year

8 Lgbt Filmmakers Who Are Having a Great Year
As we gear up for an awards season ripe with many quality queer films, it’s important to remember smaller successes who may get lost in the shuffle. Lgbt-themed film festivals Outfest and Frameline kicked off the summer, while New York’s own NewFest wrapped up last week. It’s always thrilling to see a gay film get awards attention, like the kind lavished on Luca Guadagnino’s “Call Me By Your Name” and foreign language contender “Bpm (Beats Per Minute).” But it’s been a banner year for nuanced queer films across the board, and especially ones from queer-identified filmmakers.

From up-and-comers making splashy debuts, to longtime favorites who have stepped up their game, the filmmakers on this list represent a varied swath of not only the Lgbt spectrum, but vastly different artistic styles. That means they have the potential to reach different audiences — and open up perspectives across demographics.

Kimberly Peirce Will Direct Underground Abortion Network Drama “This Is Jane”

Peirce: ScreenSlam/YouTube

Amazon’s abortion drama “This Is Jane” has found its director. “Boys Don’t Cry’s” Kimberly Peirce will helm the film about an underground abortion network in Chicago, which went by the name of “Jane,” Deadline writes.

This Is Jane” will tell the story of the network’s founder as well as the network itself, a group of self-taught women who provided abortions in Chicago in the pre-Roe v. Wade years. Jane also provided health education and counseling to its patients.

As previously reported, “This Is Jane” is based on Laura Kaplan’s book “The Story of Jane: The Legendary Underground Feminist Abortion Service.” The film is written by Dan Loflin (“Supernatural”) and is being produced by Peter Heller and John Lesher’s Le Grisbi Productions.

While the current administration is doing everything it can to strip women of their reproductive rights and access to healthcare, there are several projects in the works about the need for safe, legal abortion — and the lengths women will go to when that need isn’t met. Rachel Carey’s “Ask for Jane,” currently in post-production, is also about Chicago’s Jane Collective, as is the Elisabeth Moss-starrer “Call Jane.” And “Harlots” producers Alison Owen and Debra Hayward are developing a film about Roe v. Wade, the historic Supreme Court decision that granted all U.S. women the right to an abortion.

Peirce’s feature directorial debut, “Boys Don’t Cry,” is the true story of Brandon Teena, a young trans man who was murdered in 1993. The film was nominated for an Independent Spirit, won the Satyajit Ray Award and the Fipresci Prize at the 1999 London Film Festival, and earned lead actress Hilary Swank her first Oscar. Features “Stop-Loss” and “Carrie” and episodes of “The L Word,” “Halt and Catch Fire,” and “I Love Dick” are among Peirce’s other credits.

Kimberly Peirce Will Direct Underground Abortion Network Drama “This Is Jane” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Halloween 2017: Devil’s Night Double Feature – The Crow and House Of 1000 Corpses

  • DailyDead
[To get you into the spooky spirit, the Daily Dead team is spotlighting double features that we think would be fun to watch this Halloween season. Check here for more double feature recommendations and other Halloween 2017 coverage.]

In horror movies, things usually go so very wrong on October 31st when it comes to the Halloween-themed offerings of the genre. But what about the night before? October 30th, or “Devil’s Night”, can also bring about its own horrific consequences, which is the theme I went with when it came time to put together my double feature of Alex ProyasThe Crow and Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses. Both are coincidentally feature film debuts for each director, they feature killer soundtracks, and this pair of films is also centered around a storyline where the characters will never be the same after their experiences on the night before Halloween.

Based on the comic by James O'Barr, The Crow finds aspiring rock star Eric Draven (Brandon Lee) rising from the grave a year after his death to take revenge on the four thugs (David Patrick Kelly, Angel David,

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.”

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.

Professor Marston & the Wonder Women movie review: secret identities (#LFF2017)

MaryAnn’s quick take… A sweet, romantic story about the polyamorous triad that created a beloved superhero… and about the power of comic books to speak to our inner lives. I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast; desperate for stories about women

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Sorry, all you dudes who may have been expecting something salacious and debauched from a movie about the guy who created Wonder Woman for DC Comics. Cuz you’ve heard that he was into bondage and somehow managed to convince his wife to bring another woman into their lives and their bed: woo-hoo, threesome! But Professor Marston & the Wonder Women isn’t perverted, and it’s not pornographic, not even of the softest-core type. And this ain’t Fifty Shades of Grey, either. Thank Aphrodite.
