‘Me And Earl And The Dying Girl’ Takes Top Dramatic Honors At Sundance; Is It The Next ‘Whiplash’? – Winners List

14 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Updated with details and quotes: The Sundance Film Festival awards ceremony tonight in Park City saw a dramatic dual decision and strong political voices to put a cap on a hot-deals festival. Like last year, when Whiplash took both the U.S. Dramatic Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award on its way to an Best Picture Oscar nomination, the much-sought Me And Earl And The Dying Girl took both this year.

“I want to dedicate this to all the young filmmakers in my hometown of Laredo, Texas,” said director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon onstage. Fox Searchlight and Indian Paintbrush teamed to land the pic earlier this week after frenzied bidding, with a 2015 release planned. The Jesse Andrews script follows Greg, who is coasting through senior year of high school as anonymously as possible, avoiding social interactions like the plague while secretly making spirited, bizarre films with Earl, his only friend.

Partisan | 2015 Sundance Film Festival Review

29 January 2015 6:30 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Pledge Allegiance: Kleiman’s Intriguing Debut a Fascist Allegory

Sure to draw superficial comparisons to other famed pre-teen assassin films like The Professional (1994) or Hanna (2011), Australian helmer Ariel Kleiman’s directorial debut Partisan instead feels like what you’d imagine Yorgos Lanthimos’ version of The Village (2004) would feel like. Headlined by none other than Vincent Cassel and a cast of Euro accents speaking English, Kleiman and screenwriter Sarah Cyngler concoct a film that’s oddly obscure and perfectly menacing, with an unwillingness to explain itself, recalling titles by Lucile Hadzihalilovic, wherein groups of children are possibly being utilized for insidious means by the adult community. An allegory concerning the oppressiveness of Fascism, Kleiman’s film is also a coming-of-age-tale, spiked heavily with cold-blooded murder.

Opening with an ambient score that recalls Vangelis (utilized once more as a book end to the film), we observe Gregori (Vincent Cassel) in the midst »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Partisan’

26 January 2015 12:43 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A boy raised from birth to be a hit man begins to recalibrate his moral compass in “Partisan,” a confidently told and in some ways quite original debut feature from Australian director Ariel Kleiman. The movie resembles “Dogtooth” and another recent festival favorite, “The Tribe,” in the way it plunges viewers into a circumscribed world that has its own warped moral code. Although there’s clearly a genre hook (pint-size assassins), “Partisan” unfolds patiently and may have too little signposting for the mainstream. But discerning fests and viewers will take note of a film that marks the arrival of a filmmaker to watch.

Kleiman says he and his girlfriend/screenwriting partner, Sarah Cyngler (who also worked on production design and costumes), took inspiration from an article on child assassins in Colombia. The film is set in an unnamed, decaying urban environment, where Gregori (Vincent Cassel) heads what amounts to a cult in an isolated compound. »

Andrea Berloff will adapt Marisa Lankester’s memoir about her role in an offshore gambling empire

Warner Bros. is in exclusive negotiations to acquire “Dangerous Odds,” a red-hot package featuring Margot Robbie as Marisa Lankester, a beautiful insider within the world of illegal sports betting, multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap at Sundance.

Warner Bros. and CAA did not immediately respond to late-night requests for comment.

Andrea Berloff (“World Trade Center”) will adapt Lankester’s memoir of the same name that chronicles her role in the creation of the first offshore gambling empire, which had ties to the mob. »

‘Terminator Genisys’ Laeta Kalogridis And Patrick Lussier Make Skydance Deal

7 January 2015 3:00 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

After scripting Terminator Genisys for Skydance Productions, Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier have been staked to what Skydance is calling a two year first-look plus consulting deal. David Ellison’s production/financing concern wants to integrate the duo in multiple lines of its growing event-fare business. There is a first look at all theatrical and digital projects developed by the team, along with consultancy on overall content.

“Laeta and Patrick are first-class storytellers and world builders” said Skydance CEO David Ellison. “The work they have done to help us create the new Terminator trilogy is simply phenomenal and is only the beginning of the stories we are going to tell together. I am honored to welcome them into the Skydance family.”

Kalogridis and Lussier first teamed with Skydance in 2012 on an assignment to script an original science fiction adventure film hatched by Skydance. That led to the job writing Terminator Genisys, »

‘Tis the Season: ‘Foxcatcher’, ‘Big Eyes’ Latest Oscar Contenders Under Attack

1 January 2015 2:38 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Oscar voting opened Monday, and like clockwork, the haters have come calling. As Deadline’s Pete Hammond wrote on Monday, ’tis the season for controversy over fact-based awards contenders: Now, Bennett Miller’s real-life Olympian tragedy Foxcatcher and Tim Burton’s art exposé Big Eyes have joined Mlk Jr. drama Selma, the Alan Turing biopic The Imitation Game and Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken in ducking for cover over accuracy issues in mixing fact-based stories with narrative structure.

Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz, who’s played by Channing Tatum in Foxcatcher, publicly supported the film through its November theatrical release. That changed drastically in a series of angry online rants this week as Schultz turned on the Golden Globe-nominated pic, which won Miller the Best Director prize at Cannes. He blasted Miller and the film on Facebook after he read reviews dwelling on the suggestion of a sexual relationship between him and »
