Selena Gomez on Being Bullied at the Disney Channel aka ‘The Biggest High School in the World’

22 March 2017 12:40 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Selena Gomez has revealed she was bullied while working for the Disney Channel in her breakout role on Wizards of Waverly Place.

“I think he understood that I knew what it meant to be bullied,” Gomez told NY Times, explaining how she convinced Thirteen Reasons Why author Jay Asher to let her and her mom option the rights to his book. “I went to the biggest high school in the world, which is the Disney Channel. And my mom had a lot of history dealing with [bullying]. I heard her stories growing up. She’s very open about it.”

“When I was growing up, I was always bullied because I was the outsider, the weird girl with the purple hair and combat boots,” added Gomez’s mother, Mandy Teefey. “Then I was a teen mom. You get really judged. I had counselors telling me how I’d ruined my life »

Spring Break to Continue Forever On Mysterious Streaming Platform

22 March 2017 11:22 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

What does a French billionaire want with James Franco?

The sun sets over these last and barren weeks of madness we call March. What remains of snowfall turns into slosh as students blink slowly into sobriety. “Spring Break, Spring Break, Spring Break forever,” an icy voice chants. But good news: that creepy voice just might have its demands met. A mysterious streaming platform called Blackpills has, per Deadline, now committed to distributing a scripted micro-episodic series based on Harmony Korine’s 2012 hyper-stylized meditation of life, love and spring break that starred James Franco, Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens.

The production company behind Spring Breakers, Fernando Sulichin and Chris Hanley’s Muse Productions (Buffalo ’66, Virgin Suicides), are more than thrilled. Hanley excitedly tells Deadline that the proposed micro-episode format is “the future of digital media.” Korine, on the other hand, has asserted his lack of interest in the project: busy, as he is, in »

‘Spring Breakers’ Digital Series In The Works

22 March 2017 6:28 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While “Spring Breakers” might not be Harmony Korine‘s most button-pushing movie, it brought a watered-down version of his filmmaking brand to his widest audience yet, thanks to the canny casting of James Franco, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, and Ashley Benson. The concept itself was pretty simple — beautiful young women get into trouble on spring break — and producers have been eager to try and milk it for more for years.

‘Spring Breakers’ Will Be Turned into Digital Series

21 March 2017 10:36 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Spring break forever, indeed. After James Franco, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine took us on a vacation like no other in Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers a few years back, the adventure will continue. Plans have been announced for a new project based on the 2013 hit, but it will be taking a different format than a big-screen follow-up.

Deadline reports that the original film’s producers Chris Hanley and Fernando Sulichin will be creating a digital series based off the film, but Korine — who is kicking off production this summer on The Beach Bum starring Matthew McConaughey — will not be involved. The series, one of four scripted shows coming to the soon-to-be-launched Blackpills, is currently in its casting stages, which we imagine will feature an all-new ensemble.

“Muse has always been a pioneer in detecting new young talents, so they perfectly complement our vision at Blackpills, »

‘Like Me’ Review: Addison Timlin is a Psychopath for the Viral Media Age — SXSW 2017 Review

16 March 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There may be no idea more contemporary than a demented character using the internet in the reckless pursuit of fame. Writer-director Rob Mockler’s debut, “Like Me,” distills that motif to a ferocious young woman so compelled to create online sensations that they drive her insane. It’s an obvious conceit and doesn’t offer new insights, but Mockler transforms the material into a solid thriller with an edgy vision of millennial lunacy, sketching out a psychopath unique to the viral video age.

That would be Kiya (Addison Timlin), a mysterious prankster first seen recording a convenience store clerk late at night as she puts a gun to his head and he begs for his life. The video instantly takes off, generating heated debates across the web and Mockler’s stylish montage captures the overlapping conversations with a knack for featuring the disorienting chaos of modern discourse.

Meanwhile, Kiya watches »

SXSW Film Review: ‘The Disaster Artist’

13 March 2017 8:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Like such kindred spirits in quantity over quality as Tyler Perry and Joe Swanberg, James Franco has made a crapload of movies. Sooner or later, he was bound to deliver a good one. But who would have thought his adaptation of Greg Sestero’s “The Disaster Artist,” an outrageous blow-by-blow account of the actor-turned-author’s friendship with the aggressively untalented and infinitely enigmatic creator of one of the worst movies of this century — “The Room” writer-director-star Tommy Wiseau — would turn out to be the best and most professional entry on his own résumé?

That’s a claim not without caveats, mind you. The version that world premiered at the South by Southwest film festival was presented as a “work in progress” — where it killed to a room full of “The Room” obsessives, many of whom stuck around for a midnight screening of Wiseau’s disasterpiece.

Beyond A24: How Hip New Distributors Are Targeting Millennial Tastemakers With Bold Films

8 March 2017 9:06 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No one will forget the Best Picture award ceremony at the 2017 Academy Awards, but there’s a detail lost in the shock and recriminations: It was the moment that announced A24 as an industry gamechanger. Five years after the distributor supported unorthodox indies like Harmony Korine’s “Spring Breakers” and Jonathan Glazer’s “Under The Skin,” A24 saw its $1.5 million poetic drama “Moonlight” pull off a surprise best-picture win — one that led to a stunning $2.5 million box-office take in the film’s 20th week of release. 

In less than five years, A24 has galvanized a young cinephile audience that seemed so elusive, some doubted its existence. A24 certainly wasn’t the first to identify this demo; predecessors such as Magnolia, RADiUS, and Oscilloscope saw the same potential, and created some of the marketing tactics that now have become playbook. However, A24 had the advantage of a business strategy, and backing, »

Is A24 the New Indie Powerhouse Thanks to ‘Moonlight’ Oscar Triumph?

1 March 2017 2:14 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The surprise Best Picture win for Barry Jenkins’ “Moonlight” on Sunday represents a victory for independent cinema; a triumph for queer stories broaching the mainstream; a needed rebuttal to the #OscarsSoWhite controversy that plagued the Academy for two years running; a hell of a surprise to cap off an otherwise predictable show. For industry heads, it also signaled the arrival of the four-year-old New York-based indie distributor A24. After all, this is the upstart distribution label popular among the art house crowd for quirky, eccentric features like Harmony Korine’s oddball teen caper “Spring Breakers” — a 2013 release that grossed $14.1 »

With a cast featuring Jason MomoaJim CarreyKeanu ReevesSuki WaterhouseDiego Luna, and Giovanni Ribisi, distribution shifted to the newly minted Neon and now they’ve launched the wild first trailer for the dystopic cannibal western.
