Amazon Studios Greenlights ‘Panic’ Series Based on Lauren Oliver’s Ya Novel

  • The Wrap
Amazon Studios has greenlit “Panic,” marking the studio’s first foray into young adult dramas. Based on the The New York Times best-selling novel by Lauren Oliver, “Panic” takes place in a small American town where every year, the graduating seniors engage in a competition they believe is their one chance to escape. But this year, the rules have changed–and they must decide how much they are willing to risk in order to get out.

This is Oliver’s first television credit. She will serve as creator, executive producer, and will also write each episode. Besides “Panic,” she’s known for other Ya novels including “Before I Fall,” which was adapted into a 2017 feature film starring Zoey Deutch, and “Delirium.”

“‘Panic’ tells a story aimed at young adults, but anyone would be pulled in by the compelling characters and high stakes drama brought to life by Lauren Oliver. She

Amazon Greenlights Young Adult Series ‘Panic’ From Lauren Oliver’s Novel

  • Variety
Amazon Studios announced Thursday that it has greenlit its first young adult drama, “Panic,” based on the 2014 novel by Lauren Oliver. The series will premiere globally on Amazon Prime Video.

“Panic” takes viewers to a small town in America, where every year, the graduating seniors engage in a competition they believe is their one chance to escape. But this year, the rules have changed — and they must decide how much they are willing to risk in order to get out.

For her first television credit, Oliver will write each episode and is the creator and executive producer.

“Panic tells a story aimed at young adults, but anyone would be pulled in by the compelling characters and high stakes drama brought to life by Lauren Oliver. She is a rare talent in her ability to capture this generation so authentically,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios.

Ry Russo-Young Found a Surprising Refuge in Ya Films, But Now She’s Ready for Something New

Ry Russo-Young Found a Surprising Refuge in Ya Films, But Now She’s Ready for Something New
When Ry Russo-Young arrived at Sundance in January 2017, the festival regular — she had previously debuted films in both the New Frontiers and Competition sections — returned to the annual Park City event with a surprising new feature: an adaptation of “Before I Fall,” based on Lauren Oliver’s Ya novel of the same name, a teenage spin on “Groundhog Day” with a dramatic bite. Featuring a breakout performance from rising star Zoey Deutch, the film pulled in mixed reviews, though nearly every critic singled out Russo-Young’s strong direction and ability to add new dimensions to a story audiences might have thought they already knew.

When it hit theaters two months later, the Open Road production made a tidy $19 million on a $5 million budget, making it the filmmaker’s biggest moneymaker yet in a career that had already seen the release of three earlier features. Moving to a teen-centric movie after

Johnny Depp Gets A Failing Grade For “The Professor”

It’s kind of interesting to see Johnny Depp in a movie like this. Years ago, the A-lister would take risks in smaller fare, playing oddball characters in simple character studies. However, it has been a long time since Depp has popped up in something of that sort. So, this week’s release of The Professor marks a return to the past for the man. Unfortunately, it’s also an incredibly forgettable work with little to offer. Pleasant enough to watch, it disappears from your memory as soon as the end credits roll. What’s worse, despite giving Depp a prime opportunity to go all out, he plays it oddly low key, opting for minor drunkenness over something more extreme and, frankly, interesting. The film (formerly known as Richard Says Goodbye) is a dramedy about how a college professor deals with a cancer diagnosis. When Richard (Depp) is told he has a terminal illness,

Zombieland 2: Double Tap Release Date Moved Back One Week to October 18th

Since Zombieland introduced the double tap survival rule in 2009, many fans have been hungry for a sequel, and last summer it was revealed that a follow-up to Zombieland would indeed be moving forward with the original cast returning. Originally slated for a theatrical release on October 11th, Sony has now moved Zombieland 2: Double Tap back one week to October 18th.

The slight release date change was reported by Exhibitor Relations. With an October 18th release date, Zombieland 2: Double Tap will still come out a little over 10 years after the release of the first film.

In the sequel, Emma Stone (Wichita), Woody Harrelson (Tallahassee), Jesse Eisenberg (Columbus) and Abigail Breslin (Little Rock) are all reprising their roles as the motley crew of zombie apocalypse survivors from the first movie.

In addition to reuniting the cast in front of the camera, key creative forces are also coming back behind the camera as well,

Sony Pictures has bumped the 2019 theatrical release of Zombieland 2: Double Tap, from Columbia Pictures, by a week, putting it into competition with a busy October slate.

Tribeca 2019: "Buffaloed"

Reporting from Tribeca once more here is Jason Adams...

I am not from Buffalo. I am from Rochester, which is one hour or so east of Buffalo. But I'm from close enough to Buffalo to know that Buffaloed -- a new comedy starring Zoey Deutch and Judy Greer -- knows Buffalo. So much so I had to spend some time googling the people that made it. Director Tanya Wexlermight be from Chicago (the Buffalo of the mid-west) but, sure enough, writer Brian Sacca is a ranch-soaked Buffalonian good ol' boy. And so Buffaloed knows its Anchor Bar versus Duffs chicken wing rivalries, and it knows "Go Bills" is how one expresses a goodbye. Its arteries are clogged with verifiable Upstate-isms. 

This might all seem trivial at the outset, but Buffaloed gets its sense of place, and what's so funny about its sense of place, so right that it builds its

‘Set It Up’ Stars, Writer Reteam for New Netflix Romcom

If you loved the Netflix romantic comedy Set It Up, there’s more where that came from. The dynamic duo of Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell are reteaming for another romcom at the streaming giant alongside Set It Up writer Katie Silberman, although it’s not a straight Set It Up sequel. Response to the 2018 film was so strong that fans and critics alike clamored for more from Deutch and Powell, who showcased a Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan-like chemistry in the refreshing (and highly rewatchable) romantic comedy. Deutch and Powell liked working together so much that they put …

The Pair From Set It Up Is Starring in a Brand-New Romantic Comedy on Netflix!

Good news, Set It Up fans (aka everyone who's seen Set It Up). Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell are teaming up for a new movie along with the filmmakers behind the popular Netflix romantic comedy, which premiered last June. It's not a sequel to the rom-com - which also stars Lucy Liu and Taye Diggs - but we have no doubt it will deliver on all of our heartwarming-meets-funny needs. The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that it's tentatively titled Most Dangerous Game, and it will begin production in early 2020.

"While it was clear that audiences were clamoring for a sequel, we are excited by the thought of creating a new, distinct film that explores different romantic comedy tropes while still being anchored in everything that we loved about the first movie," producer Justin Nappi said. Set It Up writer Katie Silberman, who also wrote Booksmart, will produce the film as well.

Tribeca Review: ‘Buffaloed’ is a Rough and Tumble, Funny Character Study

Set in the rough and tumble world of South Buffalo–the streets that raised tough guys like the crude former New York State gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino–Buffaloed is a surprisingly fun comedy about the rise and fall of an up-and-coming hustler, gleefully played with a thick (and accurate) Western New York accent by Zoey Deutch. Deutch’s Peg Dahl aspires to not be another house-wife raising her kids on five-cent wings and starts running minor cons in high school until selling bootleg Buffalo Bills tickets lands her in prison.

In jail, she studies the basics of distribution while learning to fend herself. Sales, she believes, is at the heart of everything. After her release she finds herself back in South Buffalo, living with her mom Kathy (Judy Greer), who runs an unregulated salon out of a laundry room at home and working at her brother Jj’s (Noah Reed) local dive bar.

Tribeca Film Festival: 9 Movies to Watch

Tribeca Film Festival: 9 Movies to Watch
The Tribeca Film Festival kicks off on Wednesday with a slate of movies from up-and-coming filmmakers and established directors that tackle hot-button issues such as gun violence, homophobia, and gender discrimination.

The annual celebration of film was originally founded by Robert De Niro and producer Jane Rosenthal to encourage people to return to a corner of Manhattan that was still reeling from the 9/11 attacks. Well, downtown is largely rebuilt, but the festival is still going strong, with a particular emphasis on inclusion and representation. Of the more than 100 features that will debut at this edition of Tribeca, 40% are directed by women, 29% by people of color and 13% by Lgbtq filmmakers.

Now in its 18th year, Tribeca has grown to encompass television series, shorts, gaming, and virtual reality. But it’s the indie movies that provide the biggest sizzle. Here’s a look at nine acquisition titles that could have buyers circling.
