Glow Star Alison Brie Might Be In The Running For She-Hulk Role

Glow Star Alison Brie Might Be In The Running For She-Hulk Role
The She-Hulk series that’s headed for Disney+ has been a hot topic as of late, and the speculation on who will be playing the titular character has spread like wildfire. The latest news to drop on the subject though has to do with Glow star Alison Brie and the apparent direction they’re taking the hero in.

Twitter influencer Daniel Richtman released the scoop exclusively on his Patreon account, and while he noted that they’re looking to cast an Alison Brie-type for the part, many have begun speculating that they’re actually considering the Community alum herself.

Brie would definitely be a solid choice for the role of Bruce Banner’s cousin Jennifer Walters, too. She’s done an outstanding job on series like Community and Glow, both showcasing her ability to take a hit and make viewers laugh. Brie has the charm and wit it seems is

Streaming: where to find Joan Didion gems

Streaming: where to find Joan Didion gems
The Us writer’s acerbic crispness is ill-served by a new adaptation of her 90s thriller The Last Thing He Wanted – but other Didion works are just waiting to be streamed…

There are certain novels that get widely branded by critics as “unfilmable” – usually only after someone has gone to the trouble of trying to film them. The term is rarely justified: even the most abstract and abstruse prose can translate to the screen with enough interpretive bravado and rich visual imagination. Still, it is more often attached to films that can fairly be regarded as failures, and it’s with a heavy heart that I add Dee Rees’s perplexing new adaptation of Joan Didion’s The Last Thing He Wanted to that list.

The second of Netflix’s fresh-from-Sundance titles to head to the streaming service – after the lower-profile but superior Horse Girl, discussed last week – was raked

Horse Girl Tackles Alison Brie's Own Mental Health History

  • Popsugar
Alison Brie is the producer and star of Netflix's feverish new drama Horse Girl. Brie plays the titular horse girl Sarah, a socially awkward woman who spends her days working at an arts and crafts store called Great Lengths and her nights binge-watching a supernatural crime show called Purgatory. She has a roommate (played by Insatiable's Debby Ryan), who doesn't quite understand her, and a close coworker (Molly Shannon) who tries her best to.

When Sarah is suddenly plagued by a string of lucid visions so surreal that she can't tell her dreams from reality, we're taken along on her haunting and emotional journey - one that encourages us to help Sarah distinguish what's real and what's in her head, exhibit empathy for her struggles, and reflect on our own self-truths. Horse Girl delves into mental illness and psychoticism so deeply that the audience has no choice but

‘Shirley’ Director Says Elisabeth Moss Was Always the ‘Top Choice’ to Play Author Shirley Jackson (Video)
For “Shirley” director Josephine Decker, Elisabeth Moss was always the “top choice” to play author Shirley Jackson in her drama.

“You were my top choice!” Decker told Elisabeth Moss at TheWrap’s Sundance Studio. “We were all like, let’s get Elisabeth Moss to play Shirley!”

Moss was drawn to the project due to the Sarah Gubbins screenplay, as well as the other actors attached.

“It’s funny because it is a version of Shirley Jackson, I think about Shirley as if she had many versions of herself,” Moss told TheWrap’s Steve Pond. “Michael [Stuhlbarg] has always been one of my favorite actors of all-time, so to be able to work with him finally was incredible. Then we got Odessa Young, this beautiful young actor, and then we had Logan [Lerman], who brought so much to that character.

‘Horse Girl’ Review: Alison Brie, From Daffy to Dangerously Unstable

‘Horse Girl’ Review: Alison Brie, From Daffy to Dangerously Unstable
Do you know that romantic-comedy cliché in which the mousy young woman whips off her glasses — and suddenly the brainiac “ugly duckling” blossoms into a beautiful swan that turns heads and gets the guy? That’s not what happens to the title character of Horse Girl, though for the first 15 minutes or so of Jeff Baena’s movie, you assume some variation of this is lurking just around the corner. Our heroine, Sarah (Alison Brie), is single, sweet but slightly socially awkward, and works at an arts & crafts store. In her off hours,

As soon as the cast of Natalie Erika James’ “Relic” read the script for the horror film, they were all on board.

“The script was just extraordinary,” star Bella Heathcote told TheWrap’s Beatrice Verhoeven at the Sundance Film Festival. “It just seemed so strange that no one had made a horror film about Alzheimer’s before and I needed to be a part of it.”

Emily Mortimer, who plays Heathcote’s mother in the film, added: “It didn’t read like a horror film. What was exciting about reading the script was that it just felt like a really good script — you weren’t thinking of the genre of it… it just happened to be a horror film but it was a film about people and relationships and death and it was just so brilliantly done, and just a no-brainer especially when you meet Natalie and talk to her

‘Run Sweetheart Run': Shana Feste on Turning Her Worst Date Ever Into a Horror Film (Video)
Shana Feste added every woman’s nightmare to the Midnight section of the Sundance Film Festival in the form of “Run Sweetheart Run,” her newest horror film starring Ella Balinska and Pilou Asbaek.

The film, which will be released by Universal later this year, stars Balinska as Shari, a single mother who decides to re-enter the dating scene. Asbaek plays Ethan, a man who seems to be charismatic and charming when he meets Shari for a date but soon reveals his sinister nature. Desperate to escape, Shari runs out onto the streets of Los Angeles after dark and soon discovers that Ethan is not only dangerous but well-connected, too.

“It was based on a bad date that I went on when I was attending UCLA,” Feste told TheWrap’s Steve Pond. “I literally — without a purse, shoes, cellphone — just ran home from Hollywood Hills to West Los Angeles. I think

‘Horse Girl’ Star, Co-Writer Alison Brie on Writing an ‘Almost’ Completely Improvised Film (Video)

‘Horse Girl’ Star, Co-Writer Alison Brie on Writing an ‘Almost’ Completely Improvised Film (Video)
Alison Brie had an interesting task with “Horse Girl”: She had to write a script for the drama, but given that it’s mostly an improvised film, they had to be very specific in describing the actions of the characters.

“Almost all was improvised except for the TV show in the movie, ‘Purgatory,'” director and co-writer Jeff Baena told TheWrap’s Steve Pond at the Sundance Film Festival. “That was completely scripted.”

“It was certainly different for me this time around having written it together,” Brie added. “Basically, we created a very detailed 35 page outline, and the scenes are thorough — they talk what the characters come in and talk about. It’s pretty complex, there are major objectives that people have to get across in scenes, so it’s pretty specific. Then we start out shooting a wide shot, and then workshop the dialogue in the first few

The 7 Best Movies New to Netflix in February 2020

  • Indiewire
There’s no shortage of great movies coming to Netflix in February 2020, as the streaming giant’s typically eclectic release slate runs the gamut from recent favorites like “Good Time” and “Anna Karenina” to unimpeachable ’90s classics like “Jerry Maguire” and “Starship Troopers.” And while Netflix’s library of older films continues to dry up, the addition of must-see ’80s movies like “Blade Runner” and “Purple Rain” might help to ease the pain, or at least keep you busy while you figure out what to watch next on The Criterion Channel.

This month will also see the release of a recent Sundance premiere (Jeff Baena’s “Horse Girl”) along with a few highly anticipated Netflix originals such as “To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You” and of course “A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon,” and at this point we can only assume that Lana Condor and Aardman Animations won’t let us down.

‘Horse Girl’ Review: Alison Brie’s Best Performance Is Trapped in a Peculiar Mental Health Dramedy

‘Horse Girl’ Review: Alison Brie’s Best Performance Is Trapped in a Peculiar Mental Health Dramedy
Initially playing out as something of a gender-bent “Napoleon Dynamite,” the first 20 minutes of Jeff Baena’s “Horse Girl” lean into a quirky character study before tipping into unexpectedly darker spaces. Star Alison Brie, who also co-wrote the film alongside her “Little Hours” director, turns in her best big screen performance yet, imbuing her Sarah with a compelling sweetness, and selling both her awkwardness and kindness in equal measure, keeping the film afloat when it makes more baffling leaps. And

Sarah’s obsessions are minor and sweet: she loves crafting, her horse Willow, her weekly Zumba class, and a schlocky supernatural crime show starring Robin Tunney and Matthew Gray Gubler in clever cameos. Her social life is nonexistent, but she loves her job at a local fabric store and her co-workers. That Sarah is something of an object of pity even before she begins experiencing mental and emotional instability sets
