Q&A: Marvin Young (aka Young Mc) Discusses Making His Directorial Debut with Justice Served

  • DailyDead
One of my all-time favorite movie scenes is when John Candy walks through the house party in Uncle Buck while Young Mc's "Bust a Move" is blasting out of the speakers, so it was an absolute thrill for me to catch up with Young Mc himself, Marvin Young, to discuss his directorial debut Justice Served, a new "what if?" horror thriller that co-stars Lance Henriksen and is out now on DVD and VOD from Breaking Glass Pictures.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Marvin, and congratulations on your new film, Justice Served. How and when did you come up with the idea for the movie?

Marvin Young: It's my pleasure to talk to you. I came up with the concept for Justice Served from watching literally hundreds of movies in preview screenings with critics and live audiences. I got the chance to see

Be The Judge Of Stephen Dorff’s Accent In The New Trailer For Zaytoun

Stephen Dorff has been laying low in some pretty small movies over the past two years. In fact, the only two that most people are likely to have heard of are Brake and The Iceman, and even then, you’d probably have to strain to find someone who knows of them. Now, it seems that Dorff is continuing his streak of low-key films with his latest, entitled Zaytoun.

The film tells “the story of the unlikely alliance between a 12-year-old Palestinian refugee and an Israeli fighter pilot shot down over Beirut in 1982. Their initial distrust develops into friendship as they make their way across war-torn Lebanon on a journey to a place they both call home.”

Today, via The Playlist, we have a brand new trailer for the film that gives us a taste of what it will be like. From what we see here, it doesn’t really look like anything particularly special.

Review: ‘Detour’ Finds Its Way

The critical success of 2010′s Buried didn’t exactly cause a wave of claustrophobic copycats, but a few similarly structured films found their way into production in the past few years. Wrecked saw Adrien Brody trapped in his car after an accident, and Stephen Dorff was stuffed in a trunk (hurray!) for Brake. All three films, for better or worse, had storylines “outside” the single location (car, coffin) that offered additional narrative momentum beyond a simple survival story. Director/co-writer William Dickerson‘s feature debut, Detour, forgoes that additional layer to focus almost exclusively on one man trapped in a confined space and desperate to escape. Is that enough to keep viewers’ attention for ninety minutes? Yes. And no. And yes. Jackson (Neil Hopkins) awakens at the wheel of his car with the engine stalled and the airbag deployed. It’s pitch black outside his windows, but what he mistakes at first for nightfall is in fact

Casting lead roles for Universal Television series pilot 'Holding Patterns' - Los Angeles Acting Auditions |

Universal Television and Tbd Productions are in pre-production on a new 1/2 hour multi-camera hybrid 1/2 hour comedy series pilot titled "Holding Patterns". Casting directors in both Los Angeles and New York are conducting auditions for the series regulars. Possible recurring, guest starring and day player roles will be cast after the main roles are filled. The show will shoot in Los Angeles beginning in April, 2013. The extras casting director will be hiring general background performers throughout production. Starring in "Holding Pattern" is Chyler Leigh playing Leah Lund. Her best known role has been Dr. Lexie Grey on the hit ABC show "Grey's Anatomy". She began modeling and appearing in local TV commercials at eight years of age, and by nineteen she landed the lead role in the box-office success "Not Another Teen Movie" as Janey Briggs. In 2012 Chyler Leigh produced and starred in the indie film "Brake" starring opposite Stephen Dorff and Tom Berenger.

Grey’s Anatomy’s Chyler Leigh Crashes NBC’s Holding Patterns

If you’ve been paging Dr. Lexie Grey then you’ve been answered with silence since Chyler Leigh departed her Grey’s Anatomy gig, taking her character, Meredith’s half-sister, along with her. We can now report, however that the actress has scored her first major TV role since leaving the ABC medical drama. Her new gig is one of the lead parts in NBC’s new comedy pilot called Holding Patterns. We’ve got the details.

Holding Patterns comes from The Office scribe Justin Spitzer, but the material sounds more dramatic than slapstick. The project is a multi-cam ensemble featuring a group of friends whose lives are forever changed when they survive a plane crash. You’ve got to wonder at the coincidence here because Dr. Lexie Grey was killed in a similar catastrophe.

Leigh will play Leah, the quintessential slacker. She forgets things and is always running late.

FEARnet Movie Review: '247°F'

FEARnet Movie Review: '247°F'

There's a distinct sub-genre of horror/thrillers that can be easily described as "trapped in a Blank" movies, and you've probably seen most of them. Trapped on a ski lift? Frozen. Trapped underground? Buried. Trapped in a phone booth? Um, well, Phone Booth. Trapped in the ocean? Open Water or Open Water 2: Adrift. Trapped in a car? Try Wrecked with Adrien Brody or Brake with Stephen Dorff. And then of course there's the recent non-classic Atm, which is about four young idiots trapped in an Atm vestibule. It's a very simple hook, you see, whether you're a clever filmmaker or you're a lazy producer who simply wants to piggyback on, well, a very simple hook.   Which brings us to the newest entry into this claustrophobic catalog: 247°F, which is about three young idiots who get trapped in a sauna. Ostensibly based on a true story and boasting one of the clunkiest,

DVD Review: Brake


Review by Andrew McArthur

Stars: Stephen Dorff, Chyler Leigh, Jr Bourne, Tom Berenger, Kali Rocha, Pruitt Taylor Vince | Written by Timothy Mannion | Directed by Gabe Torres

Stephen Dorff stars in Gabe Torres’ claustrophobic thriller, Brake, which proves to be far more than another Buried. After recieving its UK premiere at this years’ Edinburgh International Film Festival, Brake hits DVD and Blu-ray next week, providing some highly entertaining B-Movie thrills alongside another stellar performance from Dorff.

Secret Service agent, Jeremy Reins (Dorff) wakes up trapped in the boot (or trunk, for the non-Brits) of a car, with no recollection as to how he got there. Reins is forced to endure a series of physical and mental tortures as terrorists attempt to extract the location of Roulette, the President’s secret bunker.

Tim Mannion’s screenplay may not be the most original piece of writing in recent years, with obvious parallels

Blu-ray Review: IFC’s ‘Brake,’ ‘Atm’ Confine Audience in Glass Trap

Chicago – The art of the confinement thriller is tricky to perfect. If it’s done right, the audience will feel trapped within the suffocating confines of a prison, while their heart rate will move at the same pace as that of the onscreen victim. Yet since the world of the film is limited to such a small space, one misstep will cause the entire experience to crumble in an instant.

Rodrigo Cortés’s “Buried” trapped Ryan Reynolds in a coffin for the entirety of its running time, and found multiple ways of opening up the world of its story without ever once cutting to an exterior shot. It played on the audience’s imagination much like the 1943 radio drama, “Sorry, Wrong Number,” while giving Reynolds the opportunity to deliver his best work to date. It wasn’t a masterpiece, per se, but it sure was an ingenious and effective thriller.

This Week In DVD: Jiro Dreams of Sushi In The Deep Blue Sea, and Stephen Dorff Fights Evil From the Trunk Of a Car

Welcome back to This Week In DVD! We take a look at fifteen new releases below, and a whopping eleven of them are good to great and worth your time! As always, if you see something you like, click on the image to buy it. Brake A man (Stephen Dorff) awakens in a plexiglass box that itself rests inside a car’s trunk. Confused at first, he soon learns his captors are after a very specific piece of information they need to complete a terrorist attack. Can he hold out against their threats and actions? This film bears thematic similarities to 2009′s Buried, but it’s a far superior experience (at least until the end anyway). Dorff does a fine job as the highly stressed lead, the story’s twists and turns are a solid mix of the expected, the smart and the unpredictable, and there are several genuinely exciting moments.

"Brake" Offers Stephen Dorff's Career Some Badly Needed Momentum

Stephen Dorff is an actor that deserves a better career as a second banana. He’s not a terrible performer, but he’s not a superstar, either. He lives in that weird middle ground occupied by talented dudes like Roy Scheider, James Spader, William H. Macy and Steve Buscemi. Not bad company to be in. Memorable performances in stuff like Blade and Cold Creek Manor have led to a career of B-movies and underutilization. It’d be nice to see Dorff find his way into higher-profile stuff, or, at least, more stuff like Brake.

Similar in concept to the Ryan Reynolds film Buried, Brake is the story of Jeremy Reins, a secret service agent trapped in a plastic box in the trunk of a car. The concept of claustrophobia and thrills is about where the similarities end with the Reynolds flick. After finding a Cb radio, Jeremy begins a journey

Blu-ray, DVD Release: Brake

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: July 24, 2012

Price: DVD $24.98, Blu-ray $29.98

Studio: IFC/Mpi

Stephen Dorff finds himself in a tight spot in Brake.

Stephen Dorff (Somewhere) stars in the 2012 independent thriller Brake, an entry in the currently popular “Confined Place Thriller” genre that also includes such recent films as 127 Hours, Buried and Wrecked.

When Secret Service agent Jeremy Reins (Dorff) wakes up in a cramped space with the only light coming from the digital numbers ticking away above his head, he knows he’s in trouble. Confused and disoriented with no one answering his cries for help, Reins soon figures out what’s going on: becomes clear: he’s trapped in the trunk of a moving car. As his captors reveal themselves and their motives, Jeremy realizes he won’t be set free until he gives up the whereabouts of a secret location where the U.S. President is taken in the event of a terrorist attack.

DVD Playhouse--July 2012

By Allen Gardner

The Samurai Trilogy (Criterion) Director Hiroshi Inagaki’s sprawling epic filmed from 1954-56 is an early Japanese Technicolor masterpiece, rivaling the scope of filmmakers like David Lean and Luchino Visconti. Toshiro Mifune, Japan’s greatest actor, stars as real-life swordsman, artist and writer Musashi Miyamoto, following his growth from callow youth to disciplined warrior. The three films: the Oscar winning “Musashi Miyamoto,” “Duel at Ichijoji Temple,” and “Duel at Ganryu Island” are an incredible story of human growth, tender love and sublime, blood-soaked action. Not to be missed. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bonuses: Interviews with translator and historian William Scott Wilson; Trailers. Full screen. Dolby 1.0 mono.

The 39 Steps (Criterion) Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 story of spies, conspiracies and sexual tension put him on the map on both sides of the Pond. Robert Donat stars as an innocent thrust into a deadly plot alongside a cool blonde (Madeleine Carroll

Edinburgh Film Festival Diary #6 – Sexual Chronicles of a French Family & More

‘Taboo-busting’ is a phrase that is often heard in connection with Film Festivals; I have seen several films at the Festival over the years that have tried to resolve the problem of ‘real’ sex in movies, usually to spectacular dull or unpleasant effect (the aptly-titled “Anatomy of Hell” springs to mind). The only film I’ve seen that features real sex that actually works as a movie is “Shortbus,” which had the good sense to include some humour and drop all the navel-gazing.

In most European countries films get higher certificates for violence than sex, and isn’t that fairly reasonable? That several of these movies are French may not be surprising, nor that the country that sees an orgasm as a ‘little death’ would make such glum movies. Perhaps they were so determined not to be pornographic they made sure the audience had a grim time, a trend continued

Eiff 2012: Brake Review

Jeremy Reins (Stephen Dorff) awakens to find himself locked in the boot of a car with nothing but a mobile phone, radio transmitter, illuminated digital countdown clock and an overwhelming lack of knowledge as to the reasons behind his sudden imprisonment. However, as time passes, it becomes clear that this nightmarish scenario is more than simply a hostage situation. Jeremy is an important target – a Secret Service agent who knows the whereabouts of the President’s secret bunker.

Boasting a conceit eerily similar to Rodrigo CortésBuried, Brake fails to break away from its shaky, see-through narrative and never seems to recover until, without revealing too much, the end, which will either be praised or condemned by viewers who have commendably reached that point. Until then, however, we’re led along on the ride of Jeremy’s life, as he’s forced to face his fears, use his smarts to

Chyler Leigh says goodbye to 'Grey's Anatomy': What's next for her?

When Lexie died in the "Grey's Anatomy" Season 8 finale this spring, fans were shocked -- and devastated. Creator Shonda Rhimes revealed that the death a decision she made in collaboration with actress Chyler Leigh, who felt that her time at Seattle Grace was over.

"Ultimately we both decided this was the right time for her character's journey to end. As far as I'm concerned Chyler will always remain a part of the Shondaland family and I can't wait to work with her again in the future," Rhimes said.

In an interview with TVGuide, Leigh adds that Lexie's death was the scene she was most proud of in the course of her run on the show. "It really was a chance for me to be able to go from the beginning of the character to the end. There's something that's very bittersweet about that. Something about being able to be there

The Inaugural Champs Elysees Film Festival has a Packed Line Up and a Full Program Showing in Renown Paris Arthouses

Festival initiative “U.S. in Progress” introduces four U.S. productions in post-production to European buyers.

American Independent films, French Independent Films and Oscar Nominated Foreign Language Films will be showcased.

The Weinstein Company’s Harvey Weinstein wil receive a tribute and will host a retrospective of his films.

Donald Sutherland will host a screening of Klute and will receive a Medal of Arts and Letters bestowed by Frederic Mitterrand.

The Champs Elysees Film Festival’s U.S. President is Michael Madsen

The French Festival President is Lambert Wilson

The discussions held so often about the sustainability of arthouse theaters, about the joining of forces between them and festivals and the ownership of festivals themselves, and sometimes of theaters as well, by distributors as a way to sustain the three key players of this precious triangle of culture, continue as the first Champs Elysees Film Festival presents a jam-packed line up and full program of events at its inaugural edition.

The seven day festival, June 6-12, has been formed and is owned by the independent distributor Sophie Dulac. It is exciting for me to go to see the arthouses we have already written about in the area of the Champs Elysees - the Balzac, its rival the Lincoln, the Publicis, and the two major chains, Gaumont Champs Elysees and Ugc George V. Another interesting aspect of this upcoming event is the festival's ownership by a French distributor, Sophie Dulac. This is one of two similarities between Gutek and Dulac. The New Horizons and the American Film Festivals are owned by Roman Gutek whose distribution company Gutek is the largest arthouse distributor in Poland. Similarly Sophie Dulac seems to "own" this festival. Somewhat analagous to this is the "owning" of distribution company Tribeca Films by the Tribeca Film Festival or the Sundance Select Distribution arm owned by the Sundance Film Festival. The New York Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festivals have yet to declare themselves distributors but do own the arthouses in which to show "their" films year round in festival settings.

Dulac explains the impetus to launch the Champs Elysees Film Festival, “As Paris’ first truly international film festival, our mission is to create a bridge between the independent American and French film industries. In the most beautiful city in the world and one with a worldwide association to cinema, the Champs Elysées Film Festival will be a celebration of film promoting the work of young filmmakers and honoring the work of established directors.” She adds, “We want to throw a spotlight on independent film from France and the U.S. We will welcome famous names, offer new films, open up discussions between members of the film industry, give short films a special showcase and invite audiences to gala previews.”

I personally hope the tourists of Champs Elysees see this as a special opportunity to share inside festival experiences with international professionals and that it brings in more business than ordinary theatrical fare brings to the same theaters, thus proving that festivals serve as a new branch of film distribution and that the joining of forces between distributor, exhibitor and festival point toward a new mode of profitability for all parties.

U.S. in Progress was first presented at the American Film Festival in Wroclaw Poland in November. This is the second similarity between Dulac and Gutek. U.S. in Progress will now be here as well. U.S. in Progress is in fact a joint initiative between the American Film Festival in Wroclaw, the Champs Elysees Film Festival in Paris and Black Rabbit Film, a company of Adeline Monzier who also created the association of European indie distributors called EuropaDistribution. It is the first and only industry event devoted to U.S. indies in Europe. Its aim is to present U.S. indie films in post-production to European buyers in order to foster the circulation and distribution of American indie films in Europe. This presentation of American independent films in post-production to European buyers to promote the distribution of American independent films in Europe is uniquely one of the top new developments in the industry. The program works to forge inroads between the generation of talented American filmmakers emerging today and European buyers. I am so proud to be serving on its jury as I did on the first edition as well.

The other sections are: Official Selection of American Independent Films, French Galas, American Galas, Oscar Nominated Foreign Language Films and Shorts. A tribute to Harvey Weinstein will be presented on June 6 at an event to celebrate his career. Weinstein will participate in a roundtable conversation to discuss French/American co-productions and a Retrospective of 11 of his films will be shown throughout the week.

The American independent films selected as part of the inaugural program include Richard Linklater’s Bernie (Isa: Hyde Park, U.S.: Millennium) with Jack Black, Shirley Maclaine and Matthew McConaughey; Jesus Henry Christ (Isa: Im Global, U.S. E1) with Toni Collette and Michael Sheen; Bruce Beresford’s Peace, Love & Misunderstanding (Isa: Voltage, U.S. IFC) starring Jane Fonda, Catherine Keener and Elizabeth Olsen and Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present (Isa: Submarine, U.S. Music Box). An Audience Award will be given out to the most popular American Independent. American Galas include Jennifer Westfeldt’s Friends with Kids (Isa: Red Granite, U.S. Roadside Attractions/ Lionsgate) and Wes Craven’s My Soul to Take (2010) in 3D.

French films include Comme Un Homme (Isa: Memento) directed by Safy Nebbou; Journal de France (Isa: Wild Bunch) directed by Claudine Nougaret and Raymond Depardon; Vous n'avez encore rien vu (Isa: Studiocanal) directed by Alain Resnais and Wrong (Isa: Kinology) helmed by Quentin Dupieux.

The Champs Elysees Film Festival has selected esteemed French Actor Lambert Wilson for the role of French President and Michael Madsen has accepted the role of the Festival’s U.S. President.

The festival will pay tribute to the actor Donald Sutherland who will be at the Festival to host a screening of the masterpiece Klute directed by Alan J. Pakula followed by a “Hollywood Conversation” with the iconic actor. Frederic Mitterrand will bestow Sutherland with the medal of Commander of Arts and Letters that evening.
