Sean Astin, Taryn Manning Join Rose McGowan in 'Napa'

9 November 2011 7:43 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

A slew of new faces has been added to the cast of Rose McGowan's next project, "Napa." Well, they're familiar faces, but faces nonetheless!

Variety reports that Sean "Samwise Gamgee" Astin will be joining Taryn Manning, Kevin Pollak and Johnathon Schaech in the indie thriller. Manning, who first broke through in "8 Mile," recently starred in "The Perfect Age of Rock 'n' Roll"; Schaech previously shared the screen with McGowan in Gregg Araki's hyper-violent and sexy '95 film "The Doom Generation."

The film is based on writer and professor Hans Ostrom's novel "Three to Get Ready," a title that will unfortunately get the Stray Cats stuck in your head for days. Ostrom, who's a professor at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington, and first-time director Michael Kerr worked together on adapting the novel. The two met in a screenwriting workshop in the '90s.

The Perfect Age of Rock 'n' Roll

8 November 2011 10:51 AM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

The Perfect Age of Rock 'n' Roll — the title refers to the so-called 27 Club of musicians — arrives with eerie timing, so soon after the death of Amy Winehouse at age 27. But that's not to say it's resonant or believable. With drugs, sex and betrayal, the road-trip drama — essentially the story of a superstar and the hometown bandmate he left behind — gathers up every rock-saga cliche, and throws in Route 66 for good measure.

Bracketed by scenes of a magazine interview with Spyder (Kevin Zegers), a hair-band legend felled by cocaine and guilt, this sub par debut from Scott unfolds in typical movie flashback. It’s 1991, and after releasing the best selling debut album of all time, Spyder’s second album has tanked. This requires a return to Long Island and the songwriting talents of his childhood friend Eric (Jason Ritter), the real composer of the songs on the debut and »

Scott Rosenbaum Hits the Right Chord With 'The Perfect Age of Rock 'n' Roll'

9 August 2011 10:34 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

For moviegoers, two topics that seem to never lose their magnetism are fraught relationships between two men as close as brothers and rock 'n' roll. Love and betrayal between the best of friends is high-stakes emotional drama that satisfies human fascination, and rock 'n' roll offers just the right mix of glamour, sex, and danger to grab audiences in concert halls and movie theaters. Director Scott Rosenbaum's debut feature, "The Perfect Age of Rock 'n' Roll," combines these potent threads into a richly entertaining and multidimensional film."It's something I've known I wanted to do my entire life," Rosenbaum says about the film he wrote, directed, and produced—a project he started nearly 10 years ago. A writer and journalism major in college, Rosenbaum had made films at home and in school as much as he could. But after graduating, "I went for the respectable day job and thought that I would. »

5 Questions with Taryn Manning

5 August 2011 9:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

You may have first seen Taryn Manning when she played Britney's Bff in the coming-of-age dramedy "Crossroads," but you probably know her best for the edgier roles that came later (and seemed to suit her better) in films like "Hustle & Flow" and "8 Mile."

Over the last decade, Manning has proven her staying power, transitioning from teen queen to leading lady with ease. These days she's prepping for the release of her film "The Perfect Age of Rock 'n' Roll," in which she plays a determined, if somewhat misguided, manager trying to save the career of a rock star (played by a guyliner-wearing Kevin Zegers) who's on the brink of losing it all. And trust us, it's not going to be easy to keep this ship from sinking.

We got the lowdown on what draws Manning toward music-centered stories, how she navigated from "It" girl to thespian and why every actor »

20 May 2011 1:46 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A Cimmerian warrior! Giant robots hell bent on destroying Chicago! A midlife crisis! Three horrible bosses! A wimp on steroids for his country! James Bond and Indiana Jones fighting Aliens in the Old West! Winnie the Pooh! And a bloody wizard m&#234l&#233e that will bring one of cinema's greatest sagas to a close forever!

It doesn't really matter how fast and furious things get on the big screen, the summer movie season doesn't officially kick off until May 6th. And this year Thor opened things with a lighting bolt blast of Marvel excitement. It doesn't come to an end until August 31st, when Sam Worthington sends us all back to school with The Debt. Between then and now, we will see some of the biggest movies of the year hit hard. »
