What Happened to 'Lewis And Clark'? HBO Miniseries Resumes Production in Spring

26 August 2015 10:23 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The series depicting the epic early American journey of Meriwether Lewis (Casey Affleck) and William Clark (Matthias Schoenaerts) is back on schedule, Deadline reports. In early August production was halted due to "creative" and "weather-related" reasons, and director John Curran and director of photography Rob Hardy were taken off the project. Now it is set to resume filming in the spring in Calgary with the original cast, though this Plan B, Playtone and Class 5 co-production is still shopping for a director.  Curran was to be HBO's latest filmmaker turned television-maker. HBO has tussled with uncompromising filmmakers before, including most recently David Fincher, who had a rash of projects fall off the network.

Medicine for Miami: A24 & Plan B Take “Moonlight” Swim with Barry Jenkins

25 August 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Announced late last night, we’ve got an encouraging piece of indie feature backing news for Barry Jenkins and his long awaited sophomore project. Deadline reports that the Medicine for Melancholy helmer has chosen the Miami backdrop for Moonlight. Production will begin this fall. The great news is that this officially becomes indie distrib outfitter A24‘s first foray into film production, and heavyweight Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner’s Plan B will be producing alongside producer Adele Romanski. The indie producer who has Chad Hartigan’s Morris from America and Justin Tipping’s Kicks in post, was shepherding the project late last year — it was among the items we highlighted during last year’s Independent Film Week.

Gist: Based on Tarell McCraney’s play, In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue, this tells the story of Chiron and his coming of age during the War on Drugs-era Miami. »

Barry Jenkins Lands First Feature Since 2008's 'Medicine for Melancholy'

25 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

At long last, writer/director Barry Jenkins has a new feature film in the works. A24 Films is partnering with Plan B and Adele Romanski to produce and finance "Moonlight," Jenkins' adaptation of a play by Tarell McCraney called "In the Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue." "Moonlight" not only marks one of edgy distributor A24's first in-house productions, it's also the literary-minded filmmaker's first feature since 2008 SXSW premiere "Medicine for Melancholy," released quietly by IFC in 2009. That loving, walking-and-talking ode to San Francisco touched on race and class in the rapidly gentrifying city, following a man and a woman over the course of a day after a one-night stand. For whatever reason, Jenkins has struggled to get a film off the ground since making "Medicine" on a $13,000 budget, 80-page script and five-man crew, despite co-creating a commercial production company (Strike Anywhere Films) and getting boosts San Francisco »

'Under the Dome' Recap: Is Eva Pregnant?

13 August 2015 3:20 PM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

On this episode of Under the Dome, "Plan B," Julia tries to deprogram Barbie, Eva finds out some big news, Christine struggles to save the dome and Norrie, Joe and Hunter are betrayed.

Barbie uses his mercenary experience to lead a bunch of townies on a mission to take out a guy who can't walk, two teenagers, a plucky redhead and Big Jim. A bit overkill I'd say. Of course, when they bust into the Aktaion house on Bird Island, it's empty, making you wonder how skilled this guy really is since he didn't do some surveillance first.
