2014 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: James Franco’s Black Dog, Red Dog

Not unlike Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s rapport with the festival, Sundance has become a place where James Franco/RabbitBandini Productions gets to both test-drive and showcase his creative output.

Leather Bar. and kink, and while we fully expect to see the filmmaker there for Bukowski, with Holy Land as a possible outside shot, there potentially might be room in the New Frontier section for an anthology of films that were ultimately “patched” together by Nyu graduate students. Closer to Tar than the previous pair of mentioned titles, shooting on Black Dog, Red Dog began in early 2012 with a tally of ten, mostly inexperienced filmmakers that for at least nine of them had to win a contest to be part of the “larger” project.

Gist: Featuring Franco, Olivia Wilde, Chloë Sevigny, Logan Marshall-Green, this is based on Stephen Dobyns‘ book of poetry.

Hollywood Maverick Ed Bass Redefines 'Indie Films'

When they use the word maverick in Hollywood, producer Edward Bass certainly fits the bill. The producer of Emilio Esteve's “Bobby” and episodes with Lindsay Lohan, Kevin Spacey and many other celebrities, makes Bass one of a kind. Bass' indoctrination to the entertainment world began early in life when his family arranged backstage visits with notables such as Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Milton Berle (an artist he would later manage) and Harry Belafonte. He is a past President of the American Foundation for the Performing Arts, and with Dick Clark, managed to arrange his famous "Night at the Improv." The comedic all star audience included the late Sam Kinnison, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Paula Abdul, Red Buttons and Rosanne Barr. He spoke to TheImproper in a wide-ranging Q&A.

Ed Bass Tells the Story of Female Serial Killer Belle -- Women serial killers can be just as psychotic and prolific as men!

Written by Matt Goldberg There's the old saying that "Women: can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em." While homosexuals have done their damndest to undermine this empty maxim (along with undermining the publication "Maxim"), there's a smaller group that has also attempted to prove this saying wrong: murderers. And in the case of America's most prolific female serial killer Belle Gunness, the saying is merely, "Women: can't live with 'em because she will murder you." Working mainly from her farm base in La Porte County, Ind., around the turn of the 20th century, Gunness left a trail of buried bodies as she allegedly killed two husbands and dozens of suitors to whom she wrote love letters and who arrived at her farm with fat wallets. Several of her stepchildren mysteriously disappeared as well.* Now, according to The ...
