The film is renowned for its shocking twists, and went on to inspire a spinoff reality TV series. Watch Catfish from May 20.

Relativity Media has secured a round of fresh financing from VII Peaks Capital ahead of its long-planned Ipo, sources confirm.
Ryan Kavanaugh’s film and television studio is getting an injection of $250 million in funding from the San Francisco investment management firm, which isn’t a usual source of finance for Hollywood.
The deal follows months in which Relativity made the rounds with hedge funds and investors amid what sources described as a cash crunch at the company. A source close to the company disputed that characterization and said the equity investment was sought as a means of strengthening its balance sheet in preparation for an Ipo sometime in 2016.
“We have executed a deal which will bring significant equity into Relativity ahead of a planned Ipo. Relativity is in a better position as a diversified global media company than ever, and it remains under Ryan’s leadership,” said VII Peaks »

It feels so good! After five episodes apart, Max Joseph and Nev Schulman are finally reuniting on Catfish's April 1 episode. (Cue the slow-mo run-and-hug!) But before we watch the Internet detectives meet again in a tearful embrace (just projecting, but that's 100 percent what we want to see), let's examine how each of the five guest hosts fared in Joseph's place. Joseph took a Catfish hiatus during the first half of season 5 to direct his feature film debut, We Are Your Friends (starring Zac Efron!). [...] »
While most of Teen Wolf‘s upcoming fifth season remains a mystery, one thing is clear: Scott’s pack will be down one (major) member when the supernatural MTV drama returns.
“Tyler Hoechlin decided he wanted more time to pursue movies,” executive producer Jeff Davis tells BuzzFeed. “We talked and creatively agreed that maybe this was a good season to refocus on the teens of Teen Wolf, and while he won’t be a series regular anymore, I can say that you probably won’t have »
With only two episodes left in Eye Candy‘s freshman season, time is running out for leading lady Lindy to expose the Flirtual killer and track down her sister — but first, a little boy drama.
Following last week’s reveal that Tommy and the cyber crimes unit concealed crucial information from her, Lindy is understandably keeping her distance in Monday’s episode (MTV, 10/9c), and star Victoria Justice tells TVLine it’ll be quite some time before her character is ready to trust anyone.

Nev and Max have returned for a fourth collection of heartbreaks and deceptions caused by so-called 'catfishes' on the internet, and the first episode has proven that the results are as shocking as ever.
Fans may be disappointed that Max was busy filming his new DJ film with Zac Efron for a large chunk of this season, but Nev is instead being joined by five celebrity co-hosts including MTV's Charlemagne and model Cassidy Wolf.
Digital Spy caught up with Nev to find out what to expect from the new season and what challenges he was met with this time around.
A fourth season brings a fresh challenge
"The challenge to find new and different stories becomes greater every season, obviously. For me, personally, I'm challenged by the show because »
From the covert texters of Pretty Little Liars to the not-so-caped crusaders of Arrow and The Flash, it feels like the hottest characters on teen TV shows today are going through major identity crises — and who better to tackle this subject than Nev Schulman, the King of Catfish?
The fourth season of Schulman’s addictive reality series continues tonight (MTV, 10/9c), as he and his revolving door of guest co-hosts — he’s joined tonight by former Miss Teen USA Cassidy Wolf — set out to trap some »
Listen up, ladies: Catfish host Nev Schulman is single and ready to mingle — with you! Well, sort of. "I'm single," Schulman, 30, confirmed during a recent visit to Us Weekly's New York City headquarters to promote the fourth season of MTV's Catfish, which airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. (Est) "If you live in small towns in Texas or Georgia, there's a good chance I'll be coming through [while taping Catfish]. Look for my 'Dating Tour' — I'll be posting that on my website soon," he joked. "It'll [...] »

Nev Schulman wants to make a UK version of 'Catfish'. The 30-year-old television personality - who presents the Us version of the hit show - believes the Great British public's love of dating app Tinder would be a perfect platform for the show to find deceptive lovers. He said: ''We definitely want to do a UK show. ''We could catch our first 'Tinderfish' with you guys.'' And Nev - who himself fell for an internet lover that turned out to be middle aged woman - has admitted he always has to remind himself of two things before he begins to track down someone's love »
Hopefully you checked out last Sunday's premiere of HBO's "The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst," which I gave an A- review and said had the potential to be the year's best new show. Director Andrew Jarecki's second attempt at unraveling the mysteries surrounding Robert Durst, including the three murders he's been linked to over 30 years, began as a slow-burn building to the revelation that, after seeing Jarecki's "All Good Things," Durst agreed to sit down with the filmmaker. This Sunday's episode relies heavily on Durst's recounting of his own biographical details, but also gradually shifts that focus to the "character" of Durst's wife Kathleen McCormack, missing since 1982. Even in her absence, Kathleen McCormack looms almost as large as Durst and, in an important role, Jarecki himself. I got on the phone earlier this week with "Capturing the Friedmans" director Jarecki to talk about the structure and narrative direction of "The Jinx, »

In a synopsis offered up by The Wrap, the movie “follows good-girl Vee (Roberts), who breaks out of her shell after plunging into an online game of truth-or-dare called “Nerve” with the sexy and mysterious Ian (Franco). However, Vee quickly finds the initial thrills turn dark as the stakes grow increasingly higher and the game turns personal – ultimately revealing just how far she will go to win Nerve.”
Both Roberts and Franco seem to have the clout and experience to instil their characters with the necessary fear and menace to make this adaptation worthwhile. It has to be said, the young adult phenomena »

Calling all Catfish obsessives...the MTV docu-series that tackles the world of online dating is going to look very different this season. Max Joseph, the Catfish cameraman and Nev Schulman's partner-in-crime, is leaving the show for five episodes in the upcoming fourth season, the network announced during its 2015 TCA Winter Press Tour presentation. So why is he taking such a long hiatus from the show?
