Julie Delpy's become quite the renaissance woman in recent years. The French actress, discovered by Godard at the age of 14 before going into international stardom in "Europa Europa" and "Three Colors White," has worked principally in U.S. fare in the last decade-and-a-half, in films from "Broken Flowers" to, um, "An American Werewolf in Paris," but it's her behind-the-scenes achievements that are the most impressive. »

Sharon Stone was a big deal in the '90s thanks to Basic Instinct in 1992, but she's got a lower profile lately. She's been working very steadily, but it doesn't feel that way. I can't remember the last time I saw a memorable Stone performance. Probably either Broken Flowers ('05) or Alpha Dog ('06). Law & Order: Svu fans would probably point to her recurring role on that show. I don't know if anyone would point to Basic Instinct 2 ('06) even though the image above makes her appearance in that one look like a different version of the X-Men's Emma Frost. She might get more attention playing the mother of a porn star. Stone is now set to play the mother of Linda Lovelace (possibly played by Amanda Seyfried) in Lovelace. That's one of two Linda Lovelace films in development right now, and the one that will be directed by »

Gallery1988 is steadily becoming the premiere venue for pop culture saturated art that celebrates and often transcends some of our absolute favorite cult films.
Now their Melrose location is premiering a new exhibition dedicated to, dare we say, the most beloved comedic actor of the last several generations and counting: Bill Murray. The deadpan actor has made being a legend look easy since he lounge sang his way through SNL, slacked off in the army, busted some ghosts, right on through his more recent laconic "blue period" collaborating with the likes of Wes Anderson and Jim Jarmusch.
Whether the laid back superstar will actually attend the show tonight is questionable, but you can take a look at several of the amazing, dynamic pieces from "Please Post Bills" at Gallery1988 and Laughing Squid, especially the event poster below.
How big do we geek out on Murray? Well, for starters, we can »

Not many actresses would be able to recover from doing "that scene" in Vincent Gallo's "The Brown Bunny," but then again, Chloë Sevigny has hardly played by anyone's rules. She broke out in the controversial "Kids" and from there has amassed an impressive CV working with directors like Lars von Trier ("Dogville," "Manderlay"), David Fincher ("Zodiac"), Woody Allen ("Melinda & Melinda"), Whit Stillman ("The Last Days Of Disco"), Jim Jarmusch ("Broken Flowers") and Harmony Korine ("Gummo," "Julien Donkey-Boy"). She's also come on the radar of mainstream America with her role in the HBO series "Big Love." However, her next role… »
With the rise of Toronto and Venice, France's film festival may need all the big-name European friends it can get
Did Lars von Trier overstep the mark in his jokey association with Hitler? At a week's distance from the hoo-hah, it looks like the wrong question. What perhaps ought to be asked is: can Cannes afford to exile its own enfant terrible at a potentially vulnerable time for the festival?
For despite Von Trier's hat-trick of apologies, the board's decision to declare him persona non grata is beginning to look like an own goal. Von Trier is, along with Pedro Almodóvar and Michael Haneke, one of a few semi-mainstream European auteurs who've been championed by Cannes so long and so fruitfully they'd be damned if they were to defect to a rival event. Now, Von Trier's loyalty to the Riviera need never be tested.
What the incident does, now the dust has settled, »

The Cannes Film Festival is known for many things -- red carpets, star-studded galas, critics booing movies -- but this year it's become known for something new: vampires.
That's because two new high-profile vampire films, from famed directors Neil Jordan and Jim Jarmusch, were announced at this year's festival. And considering these are just the latest entries in the hottest film craze of the decade, we thought now would be a good time to take look at those projects as well as eight other upcoming vampire movies.
Vampires are immortal, after all -- which means this is one craze that could be with us forever.
Status: The original "Fright Night," which came out back in 1985, is something of a classic in the horror genre. So why remake the story of a teen who discovers his neighbor is a vampire? »

Are you ready for yet another romantic vampire movie? Ready or not, auteur Jim Jarmusch is set to direct Michael Fassbender, Mia Wasikowska and Tilda Swinton in what is described as a “crypto-vampire love story.” Jarmusch has directed big name stars in some of his prior movies – Johnny Depp in Dead Man, Forrest Whitaker in Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai and Bill Murray in Broken Flowers – and this cast is undoubtedly the most interesting and talented cast the vampire genre has seen in a lonnng time. The movie is set against the, “romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangiers,” and will shoot in Germany, Morocco and Detroit next year.

If anyone can break the currently stale and sparkling mold of vampire flicks, it's independent and uncompromising American filmmaker Jim Jarmusch so we couldn't be more excited about the news that Jarmusch is set to helm a toothy tale starring Tilda Swinton, Michael Fassbender, and Mia Wasikowska as his vampires and John Hurt in a featured role.
Jarmusch (pictured right, Night on Earth, Dead Man, Broken Flowers) describes the currently untitled project as a “crypto-vampire love story” set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangiers. Plans are to shoot in Germany, Morocco, and Detroit in early 2012.

Jim Jarmusch, the director of Ghost Dog, Broken Flowers and most recently Limits of Control has a case of vampire fever and will make a film about the blood suckers with Tilda Swinton, Michael Fassbender and Mia Wasikowska (as the vampires) and John Hurt.
The untitled film, which Jarmusch calls a .crypto-vampire love story. will shoot early next year in Germany, Morocco and Detroit.
News from Screendaily (via: /Film)
After directing a unique assortment of films including The Limits of Control, Broken Flowers and Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, it looks like director Jim Jarmusch will venture into vampire territory. Screen Daily reports the filmmaker is set to helm a vampire centric feature with Michael Fassbender, Tilda Swinton and Mia Wasikowska as bloodsuckers. Jarmusch describes the film himself as a “crypto-vampire love story,” so it's your average genre film, and is exactly the kind of peculiar film we've come to expect from Jarmusch. The film doesn't yet have a title, but is slated to shoot sometime early next year. The director says, "I’ve been imagining this film for years. I can’t wait to now realise it with these remarkable collaborators.” In addition to the aforementioned cast, it's also said that John Hurt will have some sort of "feature role." I have to say, even though »

Does the world need yet another vampire romance movie?
Yes. Apparently it does -- especially when it's loaded with top notch actors and grown from the mind of one of the craziest directors of all time.
Michael Fassbender ("Inglourious Basterds," "X-Men: First Class"), Mia Wasikowska ("Alice in Wonderland") and Tilda Swinton ("The Chronicles of Narnia" "Michael Clayton") will join forces with auteur filmmaker Jim Jarmusch for an untitled new film which he describes as a "crypto-vampire love story."
The movie is set against the "romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangiers" and ScreenDaily reports that it will shoot in Germany, Morocco and Detroit in 2012.
Jarmusch is a selective filmmaker whose movies walk the fine line between naturalism and hyperstylized, thanks to a blend of dialogue and visuals that have been his signature since his debut, "Stranger Than Paradise," in 1984. He's worked with big name talent in strange little pictures over the »

Adult oriented rom-coms are all the rage at the moment (cf. Bad Teacher, Bridesmaids, No Strings Attached), and here comes another one. The trailer for What's Your Number?, starring Anna Faris and Chris Evans, has just made it's debut online.The number in question is not a scrawled set of phone digits on a morning-after post-it note, but the score of romantic "liaisons" that Faris, approaching her twentieth, fears is about to get too high to ever see her married. Cue a vow to no longer put out for anyone but Mr Right, and a trawl through the ex-boyfriend list, which includes a puppeteer, a gynaecologist, Zachary Quinto, Martin Freeman and Anthony Mackie. It's like Broken Flowers, but not so road-trippy, and with more pratfalls, and minus the hangdog expression.As you'll have seen from the clip, Evans is along for the ride to give Faris support in her ongoing mission. »
