Magic Magic, 2013.
Directed by Sebastián Silva.
A delicate and fragile young woman takes a Chilean roadtrip with some of her cousins’ friends, with unsettling and unexpected results.
Juno Temple could never be accused of choosing easy roles. The St Trinian from somewhat humble, inauspicious beginnings has developed as an actor by diversifying wildly by genre and tone. From a creative family (mother producer, father director) it comes as no great surprise that she has ended up pulling faces for money as a chosen profession.
Even at the tender age of twenty-five, she already has an enviable CV of roles, such as the aformentioned St Trinians, The Dark Knight Rises, Greenberg, Killer Joe, Lovelace and this project to name but half a dozen in a career littered with influences from a host of directors that have given her a solid grounding. »

Deadline is reporting that Salma Hayek has joined the voice cast of the raunchy animated comedy, Sausage Party. The R-rated film was written by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir, and stars a pretty impressive line-up of talent, including Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, Michael Cera, Edward Nortan and David Krumholtz.
Coming to us from Sony and Annapurna Pictures, Sausage Party will be directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan and follows a sausage that, after falling out of a shopping cart, embarks on a dangerous mission with some friends to make their way back through the grocery store and onto their aisles before the Fourth of July sale begins.
Sure, it sounds like an absolutely ridiculous premise for a movie, but with Rogen and Goldberg involved, you can be sure that the laughs will be plentiful. The duo has collaborated on projects such as Superbad, »

I love how movies make you feel certain emotions as you watch them. It's one of my favorite parts about going to the movies. I always find it interesting, though, when I get vicariously embarrassed during awkward moments. Meaning I am embarrassed for the characters in the movie in the positions that they are put in. I started thinking about this while I was watching Goodfellas over the weekend. Is it just me, or does it seem like this movie is on every other day? Anyway, There's a scene where Joe Pesci starts to get pissed off at Ray Liotta for telling him he was a funny guy. The scene went from being fun to uncomfortable very fast, and I started to feel embarrassed for Liotta's character.
I started to think of what other movies that made me feel like that, and came up with the following list of films. »

Outcasts. Underdogs. Outsiders. There’s nothing quite like an isolated character taking a kicking and coming back fighting to win our hearts over. Take the traumatic and emotional experience that seems to be your average movie high school ride and combine it with these detached characters often looking for acceptance and you have all the makings of a classic.
In upcoming action sci-fi Divergent, in a world divided by factions based on virtues, Tris (Shailene Woodley) turns sixteen and takes an aptitude test to decide her virtue, only to learn she’s Divergent and won’t fit in. When she discovers a plot to destroy Divergents, Tris and the mysterious Four (Theo James) must find out what makes Divergents dangerous before it’s too late.
Not all our teen outsiders have to face an aptitude test to discover their fate; in fact many are often left wondering why they are outcasts at all. »

With Breaking Bad long gone and Mad Men set to head off the air in spring 2015, the executives at AMC know that they cannot sustain their impressive growth purely through the success of The Walking Dead. That’s why the cable network announced on Wednesday that they will push forward with scripted comedy and are developing around a half-dozen new shows.
Among these potential hits is Random Acts, an adaptation of Andrea Abbate’s play about thirty-something girlfriends Katie and Lisa – who make their living as contract killers. Abbate will write and executive produce the single-camera comedy, which could be on the air as early as 2015. Further, executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Superbad) are helming Sober Buddies, about a pro surfer turned sober coach who has to deal with own problems as he goes off the wagon.
Meanwhile, AMC greenlit its first series pilot, the intriguing We Hate Paul Revere. »

It seems that Zach Galifianakis is always just one joke away from his next big movie. His recent skit ‘Between Two Ferns‘ with President Obama was a viral explosion with more than 15 million views. Now only days after the skit’s release, news has broken of a new Galifianakis movie coming our way.
Teaming up with Jon Hamm, Zach is attached to star in Keep Up With The Joneses, which was recently picked up by Fox 2000, with Superbad director Greg Mottola at the helm. While Zach and Jon are still negotiating the terms of their deals, it has been reported that Mottola has already closed his.
Keeping Up With The Joneses is written by Mike LeSieur (You, Me And Dupree) and follows the story of an idyllic suburban neighbourhood couple who discover that their new neighbours are undercover agents.

Fresh off the success of his uproarious viral video interview with President Barack Obama on his popular web series Between Two Ferns, Zach Galifianakis has lined up a new film project. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the portly funnyman will star with Jon Hamm in the Fox 2000 comedy Keeping Up With The Joneses.
Greg Mottola, director of the critically acclaimed and commercially beloved smash hit Superbad (as well as the Simon Pegg/Seth Rogen alien invasion comedy Paul, and the criminally slept-on Jesse Eisenberg coming-of-age dramedy Adventureland), is confirmed as director. Additionally, Walter Parkes and Laurie McDonald are on board as producers.
Parkes and McDonald have been developing the project for two years now, and have secured the involvement of Galifianakis and Hamm within the past month. Mottola has already closed his deal to direct, while the two stars are still in the process of negotiating their deals.

If you were to crack open the Big Book Of Standard Comedy Film Ideas, the concept of warring neighbours would probably be sitting in there, nestling alongside a hefty list of movies that have utilised the idea. Still, Fox 2000 thinks that Superbad director Greg Mottola and stars Jon Hamm and Zach Galifianakis can bring a little fresh life to the idea in Keeping Up With The Joneses.No writer is listed on the project, which will follow a settled yet bored couple discovering that their new suburban neighbours might be more than they appear on first glimpse. Depending on which trade mag story you read, they could either be spies or criminals. Or both, but we’ll have to wait and see how it pans out. From the sounds of it, Galifianakis could be one half of the regular couple with Hamm as one of the newcomers. Though this being a comedy, »

The comedy gods are smiling down on Hollywood, as an almost surefire success is in the quickly moving developmental stages. Fox 2000 is teaming up with the super-producer couple Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald for the suburban comedy Keeping Up With the Joneses, and they.ve landed two whopper male leads in Zach Galifianakis and Jon Hamm, two guys who should become an official comedic duo at some point in the future. Both actors are still negotiating their deals, but the deal has already been completed with director Greg Mottola to helm this feature. Having most recently handled Larry David.s awkwardly enjoyable HBO movie Clear History, which also starred Hamm, Mottola is more recognizable for such riotous gems as Superbad and Adventureland, and his work on series like Arrested Development and Undeclared. This trio is just oozing with potential, although the only plotline THR has is generic enough to go »
After making waves across the internet by having President Barack Obama on "Between Two Ferns," comedian Zach Galifianakis is teaming up with Bridesmaids and "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm for a new comedy from Superbad director Greg Mottola. THR has word that Fox 2000 has just picked up a project called Keeping Up with the Joneses about a couple living the dream in an idyllic suburban neighborhood who learn that their seemingly perfect neighbors are actually undercover agents. We're betting Hamm is the husband secret agent while Galifianakis is the patriarch of the neighboring household. Funnily enough, Jon Hamm appeared on "Between Two Ferns" years ago, and you can watch here: The project sounds promising with the talent in front of and behind the camera, especially with producing duo Walter Parkes & Laurie MacDonald (Gladiator, Men in Black, Flight) involved. But the real joy will be having Hamm taking a lead role in a comedy like this. »

Exclusive: Fox 2000 has set Superbad helmer Greg Mottola to direct Keeping Up With The Joneses, and the studio is getting ready to make offers to cast. I’ve heard that Zach Galifianakis and Jon Hamm are atop their list. Studio says no cast is set. The logline: a quiet, suburban cul de sac is turned upside down when an unfulfilled married couple begins to suspect that there’s something nefarious afoot with their sexy and charismatic new neighbors. The film’s being produced by Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald through Parkes/MacDonald. Mike Lesieur wrote the script, Marc Resteghini is exec producer and Greg Mooradian is steering the pic for the studio. »

It turns out Jonah Hill's mischievous behavior seen in the high school comedy “Superbad” was largely based on his real life exploits. A new White House video posted Friday features the mothers of Hill, Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, and Adam Levine, and encourages young people to sign up for health insurance by the March 31 deadline. While the other moms give glowing assessments of their children, Hill's mom, Sharon Feldstein, was not as upbeat, dishing the dirt on the actor's controversial childhood.

Austin -- There is no more unbeatable comedy duo in Hollywood right now than Seth Rogen and his longtime writing, directing and producing collaborator, Evan Goldberg. The creative partnership of the childhood friends from Vancouver, B.C., first came to fruition with 2007's semi-autobiographical Superbad, a script they had written together as teenagers. They scored again with Pineapple Express (2008), and, after stumbling with The Green Hornet (2011) and The Guilt Trip (2012), returned to form with their apocalyptic comedy, This Is the End, which grossed more than $100 million in the summer of 2013.
