An actress known for roles in Click and Soul Surfer, Lorraine Nicholson has quietly been working away as a writer and director of short films, establishing herself as a director to watch. Bringing her tense and engrossing short film Life Boat to Tribeca, the daughter of Jack Nicholson and Rebecca Broussard has demonstrated that she most certainly has the chops, finding herself among a cadre of young female directors making waves at Tribeca this year. In just 18 minutes… »
We have learned the full character cast thanks to a report from THR, including the fact that yes, Lockjaw (the teleporting dog) will be a player in the show.
The Inhumans were introduced by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby (of course his hand was in this) in 1965, but recently they have come on strong in the comics as a major adversary to the X-Men, and have been featured in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but not the same Inhumans that will be explored in the upcoming ABC TV show. Instead, this show will focus on the Royal Family of the Inhumans, who have considerably greater powers than the ones that we have seen on S.H.I.E.L.D.
A very cool thing about this show is that the first two episodes will be shot and featured in IMAX theaters over Labor Day weekend, which is a great promotional technique. Roel Reine will direct these first two hours, »

Usually, a movie in which the main character has some sort of notable health condition revolves around their struggle to either beat it or keep living in the face of the daily struggle (see: 50/50, The Bucket List, Soul Surfer—actually, don’t see Soul Surfer). But The Ticket takes the miraculous healing of a blind man as merely the jumping-off point for a much more ambiguous tale of what to do after you’ve triumphed. Dan Stevens (Legion) plays the protagonist as a man who rebounds from his surprise recovery by turning into an aggressive overachiever at work, only to see his personal life start to fall apart as a result. It’s the kind of story that sounds like after-school-special-schmaltz, but nothing about the trailer suggests any kind of moralistic simplicity. Instead, it all plays like an eerie thriller, one in which all the routines of home ...

Lieber Films has launched production in Hawaii on “Bethany Hamilton: Unstoppable,” a documentary following the life of the professional surfer, Variety has learned exclusively.
Hamilton was the subject of the 2011 biopic “Soul Surfer,” starring AnnaSophia Robb and Helen Hunt and inspired by her real-life experience as a teenager when a tiger shark claimed one of her arms — along with her determination to get back into the water after the tragic attack.
