‘Midnight Rider’ Filmmakers’ Safety Claims A “Lie”, Says Former Crew Member

22 July 2014 11:20 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

In an exclusive interview with Deadline, a crew member who suffered serious injuries on an earlier film by Midnight Rider director-producers Randall Miller and Jody Savin has called their “safety first” claims “a lie.” Katie Dover, a costumer who was hurt on the set of Miller and Savin’s 2013 film Cbgb during pre-production, says Miller and Savin’s recent statements regarding safety on their films don’t jibe with her experience. Days ago, Midnight Rider director Miller and his wife-producer Savin — two of the three filmmakers charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of 27-year-old camera assistant Sarah Jones — went on the record stating that since […] »

Amusing Full Trailer for the Comedy Dear White People

22 July 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A full trailer has been released for writer and director Justin Simien's Sundance hit, Dear White People. I've heard a lot of fantastic things about this movie, which is a comedic satire about race relations in modern America. I really like the humor that I'm seeing in the trailer, and this looks like a really entertaining movie worth checking out.  Here's a synopsis for the movie:

Winner of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival’s Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent, Dear White People is a sly, provocative satire of race relations in the age of Obama. Writer/director Justin Simien follows a group of African American students as they navigate campus life and racial politics at a predominantly white college in a sharp and funny feature film debut that earned him a spot on Variety’s annual “10 Directors to Watch.”

All Good Cretins Go to Heaven: The End of the Ramones

12 July 2014 11:07 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

And then there were none. The death of original Ramones drummer and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member TommyRamone (nee Erdelyi) at the age of 65, following treatment for cancer of the bile duct, brings to an end one of punk rock's enduring myths, and like the band's two-minutes-and-a-cloud-of-dust repertoire, it's one that leaves us all just a little earlier than expected.

Funny Trailer for Dear White People

20 June 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Dear White People was a hit at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to see, but I've been hearing nothing but great things. The movie is a comedic satire about race relations in modern America, and it was written and directed by Justin Simien. As you'll see in the trailer, he's willing take on sensitive topics and bring some humor to it. Here's a synopsis for the movie:

Winner of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival’s Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent, Dear White People is a sly, provocative satire of race relations in the age of Obama. Writer/director Justin Simien follows a group of African American students as they navigate campus life and racial politics at a predominantly white college in a sharp and funny feature film debut that earned him a spot on Variety’s annual “10 Directors to Watch.”

Donal Logue Lands Role On Law & Order: Svu, Show Instantly 5000% Cooler

10 April 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

You know, at the very beginning I was a fan of Law & Order: Svu. It probably goes without saying that I’m not inclined to be a fan of anything after 40 or 50 seasons (or whatever this show is on), but beyond the general boredom of a show that has outlived its usefulness, Svu started going downhill after two seasons, and simply wasn’t the same show anymore.

Well, whatever, such is my humble anyway.

As if to specifically mess with me, the show is now forcing me to watch it again, as Donal Logue has been given a recurring role. Fresh off of three of the coolest shows, and roles, you’re going to run into (Copper, Vikings, and Sons of Anarchy), Logue will continue the role as acting commander of the Svu.

The show returns on the 30th, and the Grey’s Anatomy-esque fun continues as Mariska Hargitay‘s character… »

Questionable Safety History of Midnight Rider Production Company Lends New Light to Sarah Jones Case

8 April 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

A few more details have emerged over at Deadline regarding the on-set negligence that led to 2nd AC Sarah Jones’ death in Doctortown, Ga. Midnight Rider was the third feature to be shot in the Savannah area by director Randall Miller and his Unclaimed Freight production company, and it appears that this tragic instance of reckless conduct was no isolated incident. During filming of 2012′s Cbgb, Miller and his crew reportedly dropped a grand piano down a homeowner’s staircase without permission, and went the entire shoot without a safety bulletin. They illegally removed a stop sign, blacked out another, and didn’t bother […] »

Suzanne Vega on Coming of Age in the New York Music Scene

26 March 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As told to Kera Bolonik. I went to Laguardia High School—then The High School of Music & Art—in the 1970s, and in those days David Bowie, Patti Smith, and Lou Reed, were the biggest things ever. My best friend Susannah asked me if I wanted to go see Patti Smith, and I just didn’t really get rock-and-roll music at that time—I couldn’t relate to it. I liked the acoustic guitar. I grew up on the Upper West Side in an apartment, the oldest of four kids, with rebellious parents who made a lot of noise, so I didn’t want to stand around making a lot of noise. I preferred to take my guitar and go into my room and write quiet songs in A minor. That seemed more like me. So that’s partly why I didn’t go down to the Cbgb scene. I »

Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth of the Talking Heads on Opening for the Ramones, Cbgb, and Working With David Byrne

26 March 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As told to Jennifer Vineyard Chris: Our first show was opening for the Ramones at Cbgb. We had been going to Cbgb from pretty much the first night we moved to New York. One weekend Patti Smith performed, and she didn’t really have a band together. It was just Patti and Lenny Kaye on guitar, and it was really exciting. Totally a beatnik thing, which I loved. Lenny was just playing out of a little tiny amplifier, and Patti was doing versions of the songs from her first album, but they were kinda raw. And then I went back the following weekend, and the Ramones played. And the Ramones were also in their formative stages, and they would stop and argue with each other in the middle of a song! But when they were playing, it was so great. To my way of thinking, it was really advanced artistically, »

Nikki Reed Will Open A Haunted Email In New Horror Flick

30 January 2014 8:30 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Twilight Saga may have been a shamefully terrible chapter in teen-targeted cinema, but the series did act as a launch-pad for multiple actors and actresses, most notably Ashley Greene and Nikki Reed. Greene has demonstrated considerable acting talent in projects like Cbgb and ABC’s short-lived Pan Am, while Reed was one of the best parts of recent action fare like Catch .44 and Empire State. Greene already made her bid to become a Hollywood scream queen with 2012 flop The Apparition, and now, it’s Reed’s chance. The actress has just signed on to topline a Singapore-set horror film called Email, which will start shooting on location in Singapore this May.

Singaporean director Kelvin Tong will helm the flick for Spj Enterprises, a production company also based out of Singapore. Tong previously directed The Maid, which was widely considered to be one of the country’s first horror »
