Bamber, Lutz, Williams, Weixler Set For ‘Money’ (Exclusive)
Madrid – Jamie Bamber, Kellan Lutz, Jesse Williams and Jess Weixler are set to star in indie thriller “Money,” from “An Act of War” and “A Conspiracy on Jekyll Island” producer Atit Shah at Create Entertainment.

Initiating principal photography from June 9 in Woodbury, Long Island, “Money” marks the feature debut of one of Spain’s most talked-about shorts/commercials directors, Martin Rosete, who leapt to attention with the 2012 Tribeca Fest-selected sci fi drama “Voice Over,” which won over 100 prizes.

From a screenplay by Barcelona’s Josep Ciutat, “Money” turns on two affluent couples held hostage by a charismatic con artist who poses as their neighbor. Ensnared in a web of lies and embezzlement, their loyalties are severed and love destroyed for two suitcases full of cash.

Rosete’s brother Jose Rosete, who has collaborated with him throughout his career, will serve as “Money’s” cinematographer.

Equity financed, and to be shot at night,

Blu-ray, DVD Release: Labor Day

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: April 29, 2014

Price: DVD $29.99, Blu-ray/DVD Combo $39.99

Studio: Paramount Home Entertainment

Labor Day is a bit of romance and plenty of drama.

Kate Winslet (Carnage) stars as single mother Adele, who with her son Henry (Gatlin Griffith, The New Daughter) offers a ride to a wounded man, Frank (Josh Brolin, Gangster Squad), only to find out that he’s an escaped conflict. As police search the town, Adele and Henry learn more about Frank, as their options become increasingly limited.

Winslet was nominated for a best actress Golden Globe for her performance in the PG-13 movie, which also stars Tobey Maguire (The Great Gatsby), James Van Der Beek (The Rules of Attraction) and J.K. Simmons (Jobs). Jason Reitman (Young Adult) wrote and directed Labor Day based on the novel by Joyce Maynard.

Despite getting a wide release in theaters, the film grossed only $13 million, probably on the poor reviews from critics,

3 Days to Kill murders Kevin Costner's charisma at the Us box office

Limp thriller is not Kev's finest hour, while Pompeii blows up – in the wrong way, leaving The Lego Movie to carry on building

• More Us box office analysis here

Kevin Costner's waning appeal

He had a small but significant role in last summer's hit Man of Steel, but Kevin Costner has shown that these days he cannot be relied upon to carry a movie. The last time he headlined a movie was in 2008, with the lighthearted drama Swing Vote, which earned $16.3m (£9.72m) at the box office. That same year Costner starred in The New Daughter. What? Exactly. So it came as little surprise to see Costner's latest, 3 Days to Kill, debuted at No 2 on $12.3m (£7.38m). Suddenly the $55m (£33m) final gross of seafaring action-adventure The Guardian, which was hardly a massive achievement back in 2006, begins to look relatively impressive. Historically Costner headline movies have never opened strongly,

The Kevin Costner Renaissance Has Only Just Begun

It’s been some time since the heyday of Kevin Costner’s prime. I’m talking about those sweet years between 1987 (The Untouchables) and 1994 (Wyatt Earp), when he was a regular box office draw, an award-winning director, and the president of sports movies. It’s not that he disappeared exactly. In fact, Costner’s been remarkably consistent in appearing in almost a movie a year. It’s more that the quality and profile of those films has diminished, and him a bit too in the process. There have been exceptions of course – Thirteen Days, Open Range, The Upside of Anger, TV’s Hatfields & McCoys. But a look at his projects between 2006 and 2013 – The Guardian, Mr. Brooks, Swing Vote, The New Daughter, The Company Men &ndash...

Toronto: Imagina Grabs Global Sales Rights to ‘Bambi,’ ‘Wound’

Scooping up two awaited Spanish titles, Madrid-based Imagina International Sales has closed world sales rights to the Sony-distribbed “Who Killed Bambi?”, the latest film from “The Orphanage” producer Rodar y Rodar, as well as Fernando Franco’s “The Wound,” the only debut film in competition at the fast-approaching San Sebastian Festival.

A Nov. 17 Sony Pictures Espana release in Spain, “Bambi” receives a Toronto market screening. Toplining Ernesto Alterio (“Clandestine Childhood”), Quim Gutierrez (“Dark Blue Almost Black”) and Clara Lago (“Fin”), “Bambi” is a bungled kidnap comedy helmed by Santi Amodeo, director of two quirky mid-decade dramas — “Astronauts” and “Doghead” — that is loosely inspired by Mexico’s “Matando Cabos.”

Imagina sales director Geraldine Gonard describes it as a dark screwball comedy. “Bambi” marks “a move towards the mainstream” for Amodeo, per Rodar producer Joaquin Padro.

In “The Wound,” Franco delivers an intimate portrait of a woman battling a borderline personality disorder.

‘Enemy,’ ‘Vivir,’ ‘Cannibal’ At San Sebastian

‘Enemy,’ ‘Vivir,’ ‘Cannibal’ At San Sebastian
Madrid – Denis Villeneuve’s “An Enemy,” David Trueba’s “Vivir es facil” and Manuel Martin Cuenca’s “Cannibal” will face off in competition at September’s 61st San Sebastian Festival, the biggest movie event in the Spanish-speaking world.

A co-production between Canada (Rhombus Media) and Spain (Roxbury Pics), “Enemy” – Villeneuve’s follow-up to the Oscar-nominated “Incendies,” was shot in Toronto from April 2012 before Villeneuve took on Warner Bros.-distribbed “Prisoners.”

Enemy” stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a man who discovers his double, (Gyllenhaal again), lives close by. With “Prisoners” world preeming at Toronto, “Enemy’s” San Sebastian berth gives Villeneuve the singular distinction of having two movies in major near back-to-back festivals.

Produced by Cristina Huete for Fernando Trueba P.C., David Trueba’s “Vivir” sits as a companion piece to his Sundance-screened “Madrid 1987,” a humor-tinged portrait of recent times past in Spain, caught through the psychology of the characters. Here,

Frightfest ’12: Under the Bed, Tulpa, and Maniac (Remake)

Under The Bed (2012) “The Aggression Scale” director Steven C. Miller returns with “Under the Bed”, an homage to the much loved creature features and Amblin films of the 1980s, in particular “The Goonies” and “Poltergeist”. Of course, with Miller being one of the rising stars of Us indie horror, the film unsurprisingly also has a nightmarish quality, making for an intriguing mix that should catch the attention of genre fans who grew up during those heady days of kiddie danger cinema. The film follows a troubled youth called Neal (Jonny Weston, “John Dies at the End”) who returns to live with his father and younger brother Paulie (Gattlin Griffith, “The New Daughter”) in the house where their mother died years back – an event which Neal blamed on a monster under the bed which only Paulie has seen too. In the years since, his father has come to believe him to be mentally ill,

Blu-ray Review: The New Daughter Is Good-Looking But Ultimately Not That Great

Kevin Costner hasn’t worked as much as he should have since his career faltered during the late 90s (around the time The Postman was released to a frankly astonishing amount of bilious criticism), and yet for a while, during that decade mostly, he cemented his position as one of the most genuinely likeable leading men. The ability is still there – more recent films like Open Range and particularly Mr Brooks confirm as much, and his work has also included under-rated films like 3000 Miles to Graceland, 13 Days and The Guardian – and some in Hollywood are still clearly willing to give him a chance. Hopefully Man of Steel will reannounce Costner as a viable Hollywood commodity, and not a relic of fifteen years ago.

But for now (well two years ago in fact), his “comeback” is prologued by this horror film from Luis Berdejo, which won’t quite do what Man of Steel will for Costner,

As previously announced, Peter Holden (The Social Network), Musetta Vander (Sindel in Mortal Kombat: Annihilation) and Kelcie Stranahan round out the cast.

We Made a Movie! What Lurks 'Under the Bed'?!!
Outside of Bloody Disgusting, both Tom and myself produced a horror movie that we're pretty damn proud of. Over the past few month's we've been working insane hours on both the website and Under The Bed, our horror film inspired by classic Steven Spielberg films such as Poltergeist. Jonny Weston (John Dies at the End) and Gattlin Griffith (The New Daughter, Changeling, Green Lantern) topline the latest indie from up and coming genre producing outfit Site B. The duo will play brothers, Neal and Pauly, respectively. Ever since we discovered his $30k zombie feature Automaton Transfusion back in '05/'06, we've been huge fans of director Steven C. Miller, which is why we approached him to helm this love letter to the 1980's. The script was penned by Eric Stolze from a story we co-developed together. Peter Holden, Musetta Vander and Kelcie Stranahan round out the cast.
