Exclusive: Nick Damici Discusses Late Phases, Upcoming Hap and Leonard TV Adaptation

21 November 2014 8:45 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In Late Phases, versatile actor Nick Damici (Stake Land, Cold in July) portrays a blind Vietnam vet who has recently moved into a senior living community that’s harboring a deadly secret- werewolves- and he must find a way to put an end to the beastly killings before it’s too late for everyone.

Daily Dead recently chatted with Damici about his experiences collaborating on Late Phases with director Bogliano and his co-stars as well as what initially drew him to the project and the challenges of playing a visually-impaired character. Damici also discussed his next project which has him re-teaming with Jim Mickle for a new television series on the Sundance Channel.

Written by Eric Stolze (Under the Bed) and helmed by Adrian Garcia Bogliano (Cold Sweat, Here Comes the Devil), Late Phases also stars Ethan Embry (Cheap Thrills), Tom Noonan (The House of the Devil, Manhunter), Erin Cummings »

10 Producers to Watch: Campbell-Grobman Films

11 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Friends Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell came together as producing partners in 2011 as Campbell-Grobman Films after working as exec producers to help set up films such as Lionsgate’s “Leatherface 3D” and Kat Coiro’s romantic comedy “A Case of You,” which stars Justin Long, Sienna Miller and Brendan Fraser.

Grobman also was an exec producer on the Michael Shannon-Chris Evans crime drama “The Iceman” and James Cox’s indie dramedy “Straight A’s,” both of which co-star Campbell.

The duo scored with 2013’s “Texas Chainsaw 3D,” which took in $47 million worldwide.

But don’t label them as horror queens.

“We’ve done a lot of different things,” says Campbell, whose acting credits include “Drive Angry,” “The Mechanic” and a fair amount of genre. “We were nominated for an Emmy for (documentary) ‘Brave Miss World,’ ” she adds, and their list also includes exec producing duties on “She’s Funny That Way, »

Mechanic: Resurrection, Starring Jason Statham, Set For January 2016; Criminal Also Dated

10 November 2014 7:09 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even as EuropaCorp prepares to relaunch the Transporter series, with the Ed Skrein-led Transporter Legacy set for next summer, the original Transporter himself is gearing up for a new action franchise. Jason Statham has been confirmed to reprise the role of Arthur Bishop in Mechanic: Resurrection, a long-planned follow-up to the rather forgettable 2011 actioner The Mechanic.

Shockingly, Statham will be joined in the sequel by the likes of Jessica Alba, Tommy Lee Jones and Michelle Yeoh. Resurrection finds the main character, a hit-man, pulled back into the business after the love of his life is kidnapped by a formidable enemy. Determined to rescue her, he embarks on a mission to “complete an impossible list of assassinations of the most dangerous men in the world.”

Dennis Gansel (The Wave, We Are the Night) is directing the film, which kicked off production in Bangkok, Thailand, earlier this week. So far, Resurrection »

Mechanic: Resurrection Release Date Set for January 22, 2016; Jason Statham, Jessica Alba, and Tommy Lee Jones Star

7 November 2014 4:11 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The long-discussed Mechanic 2 is finally coming, and it now has a release date and a cast.  Summit Entertainment announced today that Mechanic: Resurrection will open in theaters on January 22, 2016 with a cast led by Jason Statham, Jessica Alba, Tommy Lee Jones, and Michelle Yeoh.  Statham reprises his role from the 2011 actioner, and the story kicks into gear when someone from his past forces him back into the business.  He must then “complete an impossible list of assassinations of the most dangerous men in the world.”  I barely remember the first Mechanic even existing, and I’m kind of flabbergasted to see Jones listed as part of the ensemble for the follow-up.  Nevertheless, German director Dennis Gansel (Die Welle) takes the helm this time around, taking over from Simon West. Additionally, another Millennium Films production has been given a released date, as Summit will distribute Ariel Vromen’s (The Iceman) actioner »

Shannon, Weisz lead Joshua Marston drama

5 November 2014 2:01 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Parts & Labor-produced English-language drama sold by Protagonist.

Rachel Weisz and Michael Shannon are to star in Maria Full of Grace director Joshua Marston’s first English-language feature, which has come together ahead of the Afm where it is likely to be among the hottest indie packages.

New York production outfit Parts & Labor (Beginners, Love is Strange) will produce the as-yet untitled feature, also written by Marston, with Protagonist handling international sales.

Weisz will play Alice, the intriguing guest introduced at a dinner party hosted by Tom (Shannon) and his wife, celebrating his birthday.

Tom increasingly believes he knows Alice but by a different name and a different biography, and suspects that she’s not there entirely by coincidence.

The evening spins into a highly-charged reunion between a man in need of making a change in his life and a woman who desperately wants to stop changing.

Parts & Labor’s Lars Knudsen and Jay Van Hoy are producing »

'Texas Chainsaw' Prequel 'Leatherface' Lands French Directing Duo

31 October 2014 1:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just months after Seth M. Sherwood signed on to write the Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel Leatherface, Millennium Films is bringing on French filmmakers Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo to take the helm.

The story will focus on the teenage years of the iconic title character, although no other story details have been confirmed. Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo reportedly beat out another directing team, Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, the filmmakers behind the upcoming Starry Eyes.

Carl Mazzocone (Texas Chainsaw 3D), Christa Campbell (Stonehearst Asylum) and Lati Grobman (The Iceman) are producing for Lionsgate and Millennium Films, although it isn't known when production may begin.

Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo were previously in contention to direct the A Nightmare on Elm Street remake at New Line Cinema. Their French films include Inside, Livid, The Theatre Bizarre 2: Grand Guignol and Paris I'll Kill You. They also directed a segment of »

Venice: ’99 Homes’ Takes On The 1% With Andrew Garfield, Michael Shannon (Video)

30 August 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Prepping his Venice Competition title 99 Homes, helmer Ramin Bahrani says he was made “dizzy by the corruption” in the Florida foreclosure system. The film is set in 2010 Orlando and follows Andrew Garfield as an unemployed construction worker and single father whose family loses its home. Michael Shannon, who was warmly welcomed here in 2012’s The Iceman, plays the real estate broker who evicts him. The pair ultimately make a kind of Faustian pact that sees Garfield morph to the dark side. The visceral film is a response to the corrupt system that’s “been rigged for those who win,” Bahrani said. Reactions here have been widely positive, and while the movie is talked about as Man Push Cart and At Any Price helmer Bahrani’s best chance so far to cross over, it might be a tough sell to U.S. audiences reticent to revisit the period. However, the film »

Beth Riesgraf Has Become a Shut In

29 August 2014 11:51 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Being that 95% of the human race is comprised of idiots, I so understand the desire to never leave the house. Still, there are times when even our places of refuge are violated and become pretty damned scary. Read on for the first word on the new horror flick Shut In.

THR is reporting that Beth Riesgraf (pictured), who was one of the stars of TNT’s "Leverage," is starring in the psychological horror thriller Shut In, which began production this week in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Rory Culkin (Scream 4), Martin Starr (Veronica Mars), and Jack Kesy ("The Strain") are also starring in the indie flick, which is being directed by Adam Schindler (Delivery: The Beast Within).

Riesgraf is playing a woman who suffers from agoraphobia so crippling that when a trio of criminals break into her house, she cannot bring herself to flee. But what the intruders don’t realize is »

Gal Gadot is a 'Criminal'

13 August 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Gal Gadot made headlines when she was cast as a Wonder Woman in Zach Snyder's upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. I had my reservations (and I still do to some extent), but I must say she's looks great in the pic of her in costume as the Amazonian warrior. 

Until Dawn of Justice Gadot was primarily known for her role as Gisele in the last three Fast & Furious films. 

Today The Hollywood Reporter announces that Gadot has been cast alongside Kevin Costner, Ryan Reynolds, Gary Oldman and Tommy Lee Jones in Criminals. Gadot will play Reynolds wife in the film. 

From THR:

The film centers on a dead CIA operatives memories, secrets and skills, which were implanted into a dangerous prison inmate (Costner) in hopes that he will stop a diabolical plot. 

Ariel Vromen (The Iceman) will direct.

• It looks like Mike Epps may finally get the chance to play legendary stand-up comedian Richard Pryor after all. The comic has emerged as the front-runner to play the part in a biopic for The Weinstein Company directed by Lee Daniels (The Butler). Epps was previously signed on to play Pryor back in 2005 and met with the late comedian while he was still alive to prepare for the role, but that project fell through.

It’s ‘Criminal’ For Alice Eve As She Joins CIA Mindswap Thriller

8 August 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Kevin Costner’s upcoming project has just had a major shot in the arm casting-wise. Following news of Ryan Reynolds playing opposite the leading man milder than a supermarket cheddar at a school fete, Alice Eve has now been announced in a testosterone-countering move for an unknown role. She adds to the illustrious supporting cast of Tommy Lee Jones and Gary Oldman. Ariel Vromen (The Iceman) is directing this peculiar-sounding memory implant thriller via Millennium Films. The script concerns Costner’s hardman (an unusual part for him but one he’s brought us before in Clint Eastwood’s A Perfect World) who is offered a mind-swap-type deal by the CIA.

Having held her own against Bryan Cranston in Cold Comes The Night, Eve is hopefully doing more than decorating the set. She’s wrapped on Captain America Chris Evans’ directorial debut Before We Go and is currently producing Death Of A Farmer, »

Criminal Adds Alice Eve To Its Cast

8 August 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ariel Vromen’s next film – Criminal – is shaping up to be proof positive of the filmmaker’s ability to attract fascinating casting combinations. Where his previous movie – 2012’s The Iceman – featured Michael Shannon, Chris Evans, James Franco, Winona Ryder, Ray Liotta and David Schwimmer, his forthcoming venture is bringing in names even more legendary in nature.

The plot centres around a dangerous criminal, who is tasked by the CIA to complete a dead agent’s mission after they implant that agent’s memories and experiences into his brain. Kevin Costner will feature in the leading role, with Ryan Reynolds, Tommy Lee Jones and Gary Oldman also signing up. By anyone’s standards, that’s quite a lot of testosterone, so we now have the announcement that Alice Eve will also co-star.
