Alessandro Nivola Joins Civil Rights Biopic Selma

12 June 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With The CompanyCoco Before ChanelHowl, Ginger & Rosa, Devil’s Knot and American Hustle under his belt, and a role in J.C. Chandor’s upcoming A Most Violent Year, Alessandro Nivola is quickly becoming the go-to actor for directors working on period pieces. Now, he’s added another one to his busy schedule in the form of civil rights biopic Selma.

Nivola will play civil rights activist John Doar in the movie, which Ava DuVernay (Middle of Nowhere, ABC’s Scandal) is directing for Paramount and Pathe. Though the film is being marketed as a Martin Luther King Jr. biopic, it actually focuses on “the three attempts of black marchers to walk from Selma to Montgomery, the capital of Alabama, in 1965 in order to gain voting rights. The first two times they were beaten back by police, and by the third time it had become a national crusade.”

Miptv: ‘CSI,’ ‘Shameless’ Writers Team on ‘Spotless’ for Canal Plus, Tandem

8 April 2014 5:11 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cannes — French pay TV company Canal Plus has greenlit crime drama “Spotless,” which was co-created by Ed McCardie (U.K. version of “Shameless”), and Corinne Marrinan (“CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”).

The 10-episode series is to be produced by Tandem Communications, which is owned by Canal Plus’ production arm Studiocanal. Principal photography is set to begin this summer on location in London. The first two episodes will be directed by Pascal Chaumeil (“Heartbreaker,” “A Long Way Down”). Principal casting will be announced soon.

The show, which will be peppered with black humor, centers on a troubled man, Jean, whose tidy life is turned upside down when his outlaw brother, Martin, crash lands into his world, and gets both of them involved in the deadly dynamics of organized crime.

Played out against a backdrop of Jean’s niche crime-scene cleaning business, with gangsters, corruption, drugs and death a constant hazard, Jean, Martin »

Film Review: ‘Freezer’

20 January 2014 3:58 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A low-budget thriller that conserves its resources by restricting most of its action to the titular cold room, “Freezer” is a mediocre work built on a flimsy, nonsensical premise that squanders its modest potential with a cornucopia of bad plot twists. The film occasionally comes alive thanks to the strength of Dylan McDermott’s wise-cracking performance as a wronged man trapped by Russian mobsters, but the strained script rarely provides more than an occasional inventive moment. First theatrical feature in 15 years from prolific TV director Mikael Salomon (“Coma,” “The Company”) may find a niche genre audience on VOD.

Shot in an appropriately drab, low-grade style befitting the plot, the film opens with former con turned nice-guy mechanic Robert (McDermott) awaking in a meat freezer with ties around his hands and legs. He soon finds himself in front of two Russian thugs (Milan Malisic and Andrey Ivchenko) who only speak a single word of English: “money. »
