28 April 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Three years after a tornado devastated the Little Rock suburb of Vilonia, its residents found themselves huddling in the dark early Monday wondering how they would rebuild again after the most powerful tornado yet this year carved a path through their city and others nearby, killing at least 16 people. The tornado touched down Sunday about 10 miles west of Little Rock at around 7 p.m., then carved an 80-mile path of destruction as it passed through or near several suburbs north of the state capital, including Vilonia.

Fisherman’s Friend; Affrm Nets Slamdance Preemed Vanishing Pearls

18 March 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The folks at Affrm are testing the docu-waters picking up the worldwide rights to Vanishing Pearls. Plans are to have Nailah Jefferson’s debut/Slamdance preemed break-out next month theatrically on April 18 NY & La.

Gist: This documents the ongoing, environmental ‘David and Goliath’ struggle between Bp (Beyond Petroleum) and the residents of the last surviving African-American fishing community in the Louisiana Gulf. Told from the point of view of the film’s ‘David’, businessman Byron Encalade, we learn how a once prolific and unique oyster fishing community has nearly vanished. The current story begins with ‘Goliath’, Bp, and the 2010 Gulf of Mexico Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster – which destroyed the livelihood of many Louisianans. Encalade and a small tribe of diverse Louisianans fight through legal channels and any other way they can to find justice.

Worth Noting: Nailah Jefferson previously worked for Lee Daniels Ent. (circa Tennessee, Precious).

Martin Luther King Jr. Biopic 'Selma' Moves Forward

25 February 2014 9:47 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Selma, the Martin Luther King Jr. biopic, is moving forward with Oprah Winfrey producing.

Martin Luther King Jr. was born in Atlanta, Georgia on January 15, 1929. He was an American pastor and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for the role he played in the advancement of the movement using non-violent civil disobedience based on his religious beliefs. He was also awarded with a Nobel Peace Prize. He was assassinated at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee on April 4, 1968, at the age of 39.

Lee Daniels was previously set to direct the project from a script by Paul Webb. The project also had an all-star lineup consisting of Hugh Jackman, David Oyelowo, Liam Neeson and Cedric the Entertainer, but it never received the green light.

Ava DuVernay wrote and will direct this project. Pathe UK and Plan B Productions will be producing with Christian Colson. Paul Greengrass »
