Director Miguel Arteta Visiting All The Bright Places

27 July 2015 9:24 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Since making his debut with 2000’s Chuck & Buck, director Miguel Arteta has generally stayed with comedy, making the likes of Cedar Rapids and Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. He’s ready to change things up a little for a new assignment, directing novel adaptation All The Bright Places.Novelist Jennifer Niven is aboard to adapt the young-adult romance tale herself. The film has Elle Fanning aboard to star as Violet, a teenager who, crushed by her sister’s death, is considering suicide up on her school’s bell tower. But it’s there she meets Theodore Finch, long considered the facility’s resident “weird” pupil, prone to violent, manic outbursts. Violet, on the other hand, had been known as a popular cheerleader, but the two form an unlikely connection. Theodore puts her name down as his partner on a class project to wander the state looking at tourist attractions, »

Elle Fanning Is Going To 'All The Bright Places'

27 July 2015 8:52 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While his CV is diverse, ranging from episodes of "Enlightened," "The Office," and "American Horror Story" to features like "Cedar Rapids," Miguel Arteta has shown he has a voice for tales of young people. He's helmed the pilot episode of "Freaks & Geeks," guided double Michael Ceras through "Youth In Revolt," and last year experienced "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day."  Now Variety reports he's going to take Elle Fanning to "All The Bright Places." Based on the Ya novel by Jennifer Niven, who will also write the script, the story follows the bond formed between the wide-eyed Violet and the suicidal Theodore, in what sounds like a story where you'll need to keep the Kleenex handy. Here's the book synopsis:  Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops. »

27 July 2015 8:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Alternating between indie-circuit hits (Young Ones) and blockbuster hits (Maleficent), Elle Fanning has worked steadily to emerge out of older sister Dakota’s Hollywood shadow, and she’ll be aiming squarely for the hearts and minds of the Ya crowd in upcoming project All the Bright Places. This morning, producers have announced that Fanning will team with Youth in Revolt director Miguel Arteta for the pic, an adaptation of Jennifer Niven’s novel.

Said Arteta:

“Violet and Finch’s achingly heartfelt and authentic story is the most convincing portrayal of teenage life I have ever come across. It’s such a privilege to bring it to the screen with the help of its engaging author and the »

This New Unfinished Business Red Band Trailer is Nsfw Like a Boss

2 February 2015 8:05 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

We complain about the concept of the teaser for a trailer, but when you’re a wildly R-rated comedy like Unfinished Business, you have to depend on the idea. Consider the deal: Fox wants to sell this movie to everybody watching the Super Bowl, but the most appealing bits are too racy for network television. So, they air an intriguing enough PG-rated spot cut perfectly to Lonely Island’s “Like a Boss” (seen here) that tells us to go to IGN for the Red Band version. Technically, that’s not the same thing as an ad dropping on a Tuesday to alert us of a full trailer arriving on Thursday, but it’s still basically an ad for an ad, albeit an effective one. I hadn’t paid any attention to this movie before yesterday. It’s by Ken Scott, the director of Delivery Man (and the movie it remade, Starbuck »
