Daniel Waters's novel brings to life a time when a breach between the spiritual world and our realm causes spirits known as Remnants to live alongside the living.
Steinfeld has the lead role in Break My Heart 1000 Times as a young girl who has no choice but to go on the run when threatened by one angry Remnant.
Sick of Young Adult novel adaptations based in the supernatural genre? Then you’ll hate the following news update…
True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld has joined the cast of Break My Heart 1,000 Times, based on a book written by Daniel Waters. The story centres around a world where humans and ghosts – Remnants – live side by side in peaceful cohabitation. However, when a young girl is sent a terrifying message by a Remnant she must take on a mission that’ll change her life forever.
Music video and Step Up Revolution director Scott Speer will take the helm. If you’re a fan of the novel then you need not worry (as much), as Speer is not only a director but an author too, having penned the trilogy of Immortal City books. If there’s one person you want behind the scenes of an adaptation it’s a fellow writer.

No stranger to adaptations of novels, Hailee Steinfeld is making a deal to star in another. She’s leading the cast for a new film based on supernatural romantic young adult thriller Break My Heart 1,000 Times. Daniel Waters – not the one who wrote Heathers – is the author behind this one, creating the story of a world in which a cataclysmic event leaves the barrier between our world and that of the dead torn asunder. The result is ghost-like essences of the deceased known as “Remnants” becoming part of every day life. But after years of relatively peaceful life together, one of the Remnants sends a young woman (Steinfeld) a threatening message, spurring her on a mission that will change her life. Jason Fuchs wrote the adaptation and Step Up Revolution director Scott Speer is aboard to call the shots in what Gold Circle Films hopes will be a franchise-spawning movie. »

Mary Steenburgen has left Harlan for Tucson.
The Justified scene-stealer boarded Last Man on Earth Sunday as the latest survivor of a virus that obliterated most of human civilization.
Though the Fox series’ premise is a grim one, “We really have fun,” Steenburgen says. “I’m kind of a laugh junkie. It’s what I appreciate in life, because life is rich and sometimes it’s hard, and I really, really love to laugh and gravitate towards people who make me laugh.”

With a keen eye open for a spiffy new potential franchise, Relativity has snapped up the rights to Realm, a new Young Adult dark fantasy pitch by director Scott Speer (Step Up 4: Miami Heat). Rebecca Sonnenshine (The Vampire Diaries) wrote the screenplay.Speer sealed the deal with a proof-of-concept short film which you can watch above. The story revolves around Claire Daniels (played in the short by Adelaide Kane), a sort-of-exorcist in sort-of Matrix threads.The slight twist in the set-up is that, while a traditional exorcism simply casts a demon out of the possessed to go elsewhere, Claire finishes the job and kills the supernatural bastards. She seems to do this by entering a coma-like state which gives her access to "the subconscious mind of the posessed, or the Realm of the Soul." Hence the name. So the Beckinsale Pvc and leather is her subconscious avatar, while outside »

“Nobody bats 1,000,” Lopez told Seth Meyers on Wednesday night as critics were preparing to pan her new thriller
While TheWrap‘s Inkoo Kang wrote “Lopez is far and away the best thing about the film,” she ultimately joined the majority of the critics panning this weekend’s wide release from Universal Pictures by concluding it’s “neither good nor bad, nor campy nor scary enough to be in any way memorable. »

The film mostly focuses on Lopez herself — a decision that robs it of the symbiosis of fear and attraction that makes an erotic thriller...
In the last two decades, the once-disreputable genre of the erotic thriller has improbably gone arthouse, resulting in critically lauded but largely unseen indies like last year’s “Under the Skin” and “Stranger by the Lake.” A throwback to such racy but scolding Adrian Lyne movies as “Unfaithful” and “Indecent Proposal,” “The Boy Next Door” returns the mainstream erotic thriller to the multiplex, but its thin T-shirts and thinner characterizations fail to make a convincing case for the genre’s resurrection. »
