Filmmaker David O. Russell is auctioning off a walk-on role in an upcoming movie to raise money for a Tibetan charity.

The Fighter director is expected to raise $15,000 (£9,300) for Tibet House by inviting the winning bidder to shoot a scene in his next project.

Hip-hop mogul and philanthropist Russell Simmons is also helping the cause by pledging to give an hour-long private yoga lesson in New York City - a prize expected to fetch $5,000 (£3,100) when it goes under the hammer on the Charity Buzz website.

Director Martin Scorsese has offered a visit to the set of his hit TV show Boardwalk Empire, while a meet-and-greet session with Maggie Gyllenhaal at the premiere of her comedy Hysteria is also up for grabs.

Rare prints of stars including John Lennon, Jay-z, Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix are also available in the auction for Tibet House, a charity which promotes and preserves Tibetan culture. »

Sony Pictures Classics Comes Down with Hysteria Starring Maggie Gyllenhaal

10 November 2011 5:01 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

This one’s for the ladies: Hysteria, the Tanya Wexler-directed picture starring Oscar-nominee Maggie Gyllenhaal, has sold its Us and South African rights to Sony Pictures Classics. The romantic comedy is based on the historically (and hysterically) accurate tale of Dr. Joseph Mortimer Granville’s invention of the first vibrator, all in the name of medical science. The heart of the film is about the realization that everyone is in control of their own happiness. Written by Stephen Dyer and Jonah Lisa Dyer, and produced by the all-female trio of Sarah Curtis, Judy Cairo and Tracey Becker, Hysteria also stars Hugh Dancy, Jonathan Pryce, Rupert Everett and Felicity Jones. Hit the jump for more on Hysteria. Our own Matt Goldberg reviewed Hysteria at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, although I doubt his comment of “inarguably the best movie you’ll see all year featuring Jonathan Pryce fingerblasting »

First image of Simon Pegg in ‘A Fantastic Fear of Everything’

25 October 2011 9:45 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard anything regarding the Simon Pegg starring ”psycho-comedy” A Fantastic Fear of Everything, which comes from musician-turned-filmmaker Crispian Mills, who both writes and directs the movie, his feature debut. He is joined by co-director and animator Chris Hopewell. The rest of the cast includes newcomer Alan Drake, Amara Karan (The Darjeeling Limited), Clare Higgins (Hellraiser) and Sheridan Smith (Hysteria).

Thanks to the folks at Dread Central, we now have our first look (albeit a small one) at Simon Pegg in his starring role – looking a little worse for wear and, given the films title, a little afraid…

Jack (Simon Pegg) is a children’s author turned crime novelist whose detailed research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck, persecuted by the irrational fear of being murdered. When Jack is thrown a life-line by his »

Martha Marcy's Extraordinary Hugh Dancy On Playing An Ordinary Guy (Video Interview)

17 October 2011 5:14 AM, PDT | James on ScreenS | See recent James on ScreenS news »

With leading-man looks and serious talent, Hugh Dancy is an actor with options. He’s one of the stars of Hysteria (opening later this year) as the 19th century doctor who invented the vibrator, and is currently in previews in the two-character Broadway play Venus in Fur. So what’s he doing in the frankly supporting role of the brother-in-law in Martha Marcy May Marlene? The attention-getting title character - played by the even-more-attention-getting Elizabeth Olsen - is a young woman who escapes a harrowing cult-like community and arrives at the upscale summer house of her sister, Lucy, and Lucy’s new husband,… »

Spc Get Off on 'Hysteria'; Post Tiff Deal is Perfect for Distributor's Demo

3 October 2011 2:35 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

"Stimulated" by their most recent pick-up in Tiff audience award's Where Do We Go Now?, Sony Pictures Classics are supposedly, as we had suggested prior to its world premiere, interested in another crowd-pleaser in Tanya Wexler's Hysteria. With Maggie Gyllenhaal, Hugh Dancy, Felicity Jones and Jonathan Pryce on board, producers should be able to fetch a good deal for the pic -- THR reports that a deal is near on U.S. and South Africa rights, so a confirmation for the deal and more thn likely a 2012 showing shouldn't be too far off. Gist: Based on a true story, set in Victorian England about the invention of the first vibrator. Victorian England, 1880. Mortimer Granville, a young doctor sick of his colleagues' medieval practices, starts working for Dr Dalrymple, who treats women's "hysteria" by offering them intimate manual relief... Demand is so great that Mortimer fears for the use of his hands. »

Toronto: Sony Pictures Landing ‘Hysteria’

30 September 2011 1:10 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Exclusive: I’m told that Sony Pictures Classics is near a deal to distribute Hysteria, the Tanya Wexler-directed romantic comedy based on the surprising truth of how Mortimer Granville came up with the world’s first electro-mechanical vibrator as an advance in medical science. The film created a — wait for it — buzz when it premiered September 15 at Roy Thomson Hall. Hugh Dancy, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jonathan Pryce, Rupert Everett and Felicity Jones star in the film. Samuel Goldwyn Films and Millennium also chased the title. Sony Pictures Classics partners Michael Barker and Tom Bernard have this evening’s opening-night film of the New York Film Festival with the premiere of Carnage, the Roman Polanski-directed feature adaptation of Yasmina Reza’s Tony-winning play. Polanski shot the film in Paris, with Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly starring. Hysteria was repped by Cassian Elwes and Elle Driver. »
