The Best of SXSW Film Festival 2011

South By Southwest is largely awesome as a condition of place. Austin is an amazing case study that has much going right. It is a city of filmmakers, lovers and scholars with public and private support. An organization with the most visible influence is the Austin Film Society, which sponsors filmmaker financially through the new Texas Filmmakers Fund (partly funding two strong films I saw – Where Soldiers Come From and Five Time Champion) amongst other initiatives. I think SXSW Film has grown partly because Texas filmmaking has grown. There is a large display of strong work including the festival’s Lone Star States showcase. This is as much a local festival as it a national festival (and shockingly less so an international festival, with very little work from other non-traditional Hollywood funding bodies like Europe).

The flexibility of SXSW to discover new voices is one of their leading strengths. If

Sharlto Copley Written/Directed Thriller 'Spoon' Gets A Trailer

Sharlto Copley Written/Directed Thriller 'Spoon' Gets A Trailer
"District 9" was, in my opinion, one of the strongest movies of last year. Largely thanks to the performance of then-newcomer Sharlto Copley, a dude who has since gone on to land a lead role in "The A-Team." Making all of this even more impressive is the fact that Copley never even intended to act in the first place! As he told us last year, he was originally set to produce, and it was Peter Jackson who pushed for him to star. It's clear though that Copley has hopes of working behind the camera as well as in front of it.

In fact, he already has! A trailer for "Spoon" has surfaced online, a supernatural thriller starring Rutger Hauer and written/directed/produced by Copley. A debut trailer is now up online too, thanks to Twitch.

Trailer: Spoon | District 9's Sharlto Copley - Director? With Bonus Rutger Hauer!

  • Pajiba
Man, Sharlto Copley seems determined to take the world by force. First he blew us away with his surprisingly nuanced portrayal of Wickus in the outstanding District 9, next he's playing Murdock in The A-Team (Ok, they can't all be winners. Dude's gotta eat, I say), and now he's nearing the completion of his first directorial film, Spoon. Incidentally, I love the title. I'm a big fan of strange, cryptic titles.

Anyway, the film stars the blind Dutch samurai himself, Rutger Hauer (!) and a bunch of actors that I've never heard of. You gotta love Rutger Hauer, man. For every crapulent SyFy flick he does, he's also got things like roles in Batman Begins. The dude is ubiquitous. He'll outlive us all, the bastard. Anyway, the synopsis goeth thusly:

A thriller with supernatural overtones about a man with a medical condition that causes him to black out during moments of

Watch This: Teaser for Sharlto Copley Directed Thriller 'Spoon'

Way before we all came to know and love Sharlto Copley as Wikus in District 9, he was actually working on a budding career as a director. Back in 2006, Copley co-directed a feature with production partner Simon Hansen, a thriller starring Rutger Hauer and Darren Boyd ("Personal Affairs") called Spoon. And after many years of waiting, an early teaser trailer has hit the web, courtesy of Twitch, giving us our very first look at Rutger Hauer as Victor Spoon. It's kind of creepy in a sense, almost in a Cronenberg kind of way, and it's about a guy who blacks out during moments of extreme stress. So uh, just check this out, if you're curious.

Teaser for District 9 star Sharlto Copley's movie Spoon, starring Rutger Hauer

  • JoBlo
Before District 9 blew us away, the vast majority of us had no idea who Sharlto Copley was. But the hapless alien-displacer has bigger ambitions than just being in front of the camera. In fact, Copley has already completed co-writing, co-directing and co-producing an indie feature called Spoon, a "thriller with supernatural overtones about a man with a medical condition that causes him to black out during moments of extreme stress and leads him to make a remarkable discovery about...

Trailer: Sharlto Copley Puts Rutger Hauer In A Straight Jacket For His Directorial Debut

Prior to last August, if you were to mention the name "Sharlto Copley" to a friend, they would probably shoot you a confused look and ask if that.s the name of the new crater they've discovered on Mars. Now, of course, he.s becoming a major name thanks to both District 9 and the upcoming A-Team. But while the Neill Blomkamp exposed him to audiences as an actor, Copley has been trying to make a career as a director for years, having started work on his first film, Spoon, back in 2008. Now, two years later, the film is complete and here.s the teaser trailer. Spoon.s looks, to put it mildly, quite creepy. The trailer is only 34 seconds long and features a straight-jacketed Rutger Hauer speaking about humanity and sacrifice. The film is being described as a "thriller with supernatural overtones about a man with a medical condition

Sharlto Copley’s Spoon Teaser Trailer

South African actor Sharlto Copley came out of nowhere to amaze people with his performance as Wikus Van De Merwe in Neill Blomkamp's District 9 and has since gone on to land the role of Murdock in The A-Team. But did you know that before District 9 he was already hard at work writing and directing a movie of his own? Copley and partner Simon Hansen have been developing a mysterious project called Spoon for a few years now, and it sounds like it will finally be released sometime in the near future. The good folks over at Twitch [1] got their hands on the very first teaser trailer, and although it doesn't show much, the premise is intriguing. Spoon is a supernatural thriller revolving around a man with a strange medical condition who blacks out during periods of extreme stress, causing strange things to happen. It stars TV actor Darren Boyd (Saxondale,

Movie Trailer: Sharlto Copley’s Directorial Debut Spoon

Movie Trailer: Sharlto Copley’s Directorial Debut Spoon
Prior to his breakout as an actor in District 9, Sharlto Copley was pursuing a career intended to be located behind the camera rather than in front of it. He worked behind the scenes on Alive in Joburg and District 9 (and directed himself as D9's Wikus in a brief comedy piece) and has been working on his directorial debut for some time with co-director and production partner Simon Hansen. Called Spoon, the film is either complete or approaching completion, and there is a short teaser to announce the project to the public. The teaser, via Twitch, is all-too brief, but it is wonderful for focusing on Rutger Hauer, who plays one of the film's two primary characters. Spoon is "a thriller with supernatural overtones about a man with a medical condition that causes him to black out during moments of extreme stress and leads him to make a

Watch This: Teaser for Sharlto Copley's Sci-Fi Thriller 'Spoon'
You may know Sharlto Copley as the hapless bureaucrat who gets exposed to an alien chemical in Neil Blomkamp's District 9. But before winning some degree of stateside recognition as the star of that film, Copley was somewhat of a media magnate in his native South Africa, producing and directing shorts and commercials through his production companies. Somewhere in there, apparently before District 9 took off and Copley was cast in The A-Team, he also directed a feature: a science-fiction thriller called Spoon, starring Rutger Hauer and British TV vet Darren Boyd. "Spoon" is the last name of the two main characters -- Hauer the father and Boyd the son.

The movie is described on IMDb as about "a man with a medical condition that causes him to black out during moments of extreme stress and leads him to make a remarkable discovery about himself," which is frankly enough of

First Look At “District 9″ Star Sharlto Copley’s Directorial Debut “Spoon”

I didn’t know Sharlto Copley had any interest in directing. Since District 9, he’s landed the role of Murdock in the upcoming A-Team reboot. But he also found time to direct a “supernatural thriller” titled Spoon. The film is about “a man with a medical condition that causes him to black out during moments of extreme stress and leads him to make a remarkable discovery about himself.” Brit TV actor Darren Boyd stars in the lead as Daniel Spoon, and Rutger Hauer as his father Victor. The film is reportedly complete, although, no word on what happens next, other than the teaser below:

District 9 star debuts trailer for his first film Spoon

I gotta say, I’m loving the trajectory of Rutger Hauer’s career over the last few years. The aging action star is popping up in all sorts of great films and this could well be another.

South African actor Sharlto Copley (now semi-recognized for his performance in last year’s District 9 (review)) didn’t always want to be a movie star; he actually started his career as a producer with aspirations of directing and here’s his first effort. Spoon stars Hauer as Victor Spoon and Darren Boyd (familiar to me from his appearances in the great Canadian show “ReGenesis” though others may recognize him from his regular appearances on a number of British shows) as Daniel Spoon, a man with a medical condition which causes him to black when under extreme stress. When he sets off to figure out what's happening to him, he makes a "remarkable discovery about himself.

An Exclusive First Look At District 9 Star Sharlto Copley's Directorial Debut Spoon!

Before he rose to fame as the leading man in District 9 and long before he was cast as Mad Murdock in Joe Carnahan's revival of The A-Team, Sharlto Copley's future plans involved working on the other side of the camera. Along with Simon Hansen - his partner in South Africa's Inspired Minority production house - Copley had his beginnings as a producer and effects geek, with both Hansen and Copley heavily involved behind the scenes in both District 9 and Neill Blomkamp's short film precursor Alive In Joburg. Copley and Hansen are both credited as producers on Joburg and both were heavily involved in the effects as well, with Hansen later given directorial duties on the interview segments of District 9. And while fame and other projects have stretched out the timeline a bit the duo's post-Joburg plans revolved around co-directing a supernatural thriller titled Spoon.
