Julianne Moore to star in After the Wedding remake

Oscar winner Julianne Moore (Still Alice) has signed on to appear in After the Wedding, a remake of Susanne Bier’s Academy Award-nominated Danish drama, which is being written and directed by Bart Freundlich (The Rebound).

“We are overjoyed to have Bart as a partner in this project that has been a long time labour of love,” said producers Joel Michaels (Terminator Salvation) and Silvio Muraglia (Black Butterfly). “He’s reimagined a brilliant retelling of Susanne Bier’s acclaimed and potent drama. We are further blessed to be working with Julianne Moore who remarkable talent brings depth and sincerity to every role she portrays.”

“Bart has written an emotional powerhouse of a screenplay,” added Alison Thompson and Mark Gooder from Cornerstone Films.

First Time Fest: Producers Panel

At the First Time Fest, accomplished filmmakers came to teach and advocate new filmmakers how to get their film made and how to make their film popular. As part of the How They Did It Panel Series, the “We Need A Bigger Boat-Producing Independent Cinema” panel had producers speak about the struggles they had not only making their first films, but also the films they’re working on right now.

Guests of the Producers Panel were Josh Astrachan, who produced Gosford’s Park, as well as Rose Ganguzza, whose latest and widely distributed film was Margin Call. Jonathan Grey was in attendance as well, having produced not only Margin Call but Machete as well recently. Dolly Hall, who produced 54, was there as well, with Bob Salerno talking about Arbitrage and Tim Perell, who produced The Rebound. The six producers spoke about their work as producers and how they had their films made with major problems,

Todd Phillips reveals Hangover 3 images

It seems everyone’s favourite Wolf Pack are one step closer to making it back onto our screens. With the third and final instalment of the hugely successful Hangover franchise due to be released next summer director Todd Phillips has revealed a few intimate photos from The Hangover Part III set via his instagram account Toddphillips1:

While the original Hangover movie was set in Las Vegas and the most of the sequel’s action set in Thailand, plot details for the third instalment have so far been kept tightly under wraps. There is widespread speculation that the movie will ditch the format of the first two movies which were both quite similar and go in a new direction.

However we will surely see all of our favourite characters reprising their roles such as Bradley Cooper (Limitless), Ed Helms (The Office), Zach Galifianakis (Due Date) and Justin Bartha (The Rebound) as the infamous Wolf Pack.

Blu-ray Release: High Fidelity, Grosse Pointe Blank

Blu-ray Release Date: Aug. 7, 2012

Price: Blu-ray $20.00 each

Studio: Walt Disney Home Entertainment

High Fidelity

Two of our favorite John Cusack (2012) movies are High Fidelity and Grosse Pointe Blank, and we’re thrilled to finally have them on high-definition Blu-ray.

2000′s High Fidelity and 1997′s Grosse Pointe Blank and both smart, fast-talking and very funny films.

Based on the book by Nick Hornby, High Fidelity tells the story of Rob (Cusack) a record store owner and compulsive list maker who’s having relationship issues. After his girlfriend (Iben Hjejle) leaves him for their older and very strange neighbor (Tim Robbins, Bull Durham), Rob recounts his top five breakups, visiting his exes (including Catherine Zeta-Jones, The Rebound) to find out where he went wrong.

Jack Black (Gulliver’s Travels) and Todd Louiso (The Switch) are great as Cusack’s record store sidekicks in the film, which was directed by Stephen Frears (Tamara Drewe

With Catherine Zeta-Jones, ‘Red 2′ Now Has 3 Oscar Winners Involved

Catherine Zeta-Jones took a hiatus from acting late last decade, but she’s been back in the game with The Rebound and Sundance Weinstein pick-up Lay the Favorite. Now, she’s continuing that working streak with Red 2. At 42, it might be a little early for her to retire. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Oscar-winner has signed on alongside Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker and Dame Helen Mirren who will be reprising their roles. The screenwriters, Erich and Jon Hoeber, are also back, but director Robert Schwentke is not. He’s currently working on R.I.P.D., which may or may not be the reason, but Dean Parisot will be taking his spot. Parisot is also an Oscar winner, having won for Best Live-Action Short Film back in 1989 and going on to direct Galaxy Quest and Fun With Dick and Jane. It’s an interesting background he brings, but the comedy angle is easy to see. So

DVD Playhouse--March 2012

DVD Playhouse—March 2012

By Allen Gardner

J. Edgar (Warner Bros.) Director Clint Eastwood provides a rock-solid, albeit rather flat portrait of polarizing FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, covering his life from late teens to his death. Leonardo DiCaprio does an impressive turn as Hoover, never crossing the line into caricature, and creating a Hoover that is all too human, making for an all the more unsettling look at absolute power run amuck. Where the film stumbles is the love story at its core: Hoover’s relationship with longtime aide Clyde Tolson (Armie Hammer). In the hands of an openly-gay director like Gus Van Sant, this could have been a heartbreaking, tender story of forbidden (unrequited?) love, but Eastwood seems to tiptoe around their romance, with far too much delicacy and deference. The film works well when recreating the famous crimes and investigations which Hoover made his name on (the Lindbergh kidnapping,

The Rebound

Catherine Zeta-Jones hasn’t been a major player in the world of romantic comedies for quite some time, and in her absence the likes of Katherine Heigl, Kate Hudson, and Jennifer Aniston have unleashed a stream of monochromatic fare. The Rebound had a chance to shake things up as an unconventional love story between a recently separated 40-something mother of two and her male 25-year-old nanny. An age gap of that size is typically used for laughs in romantic comedies, with a wily cougar pursuing a bewildered but not entirely unwilling young buck. In The Rebound, it’s a much more honest and contemplative coupling that gives Zeta-Jones and Justin Bartha a chance to shine with two quirky kids, but they ultimately fizzle out from a complete lack of any romantic spark and a script that flinches in the final act.

Review: 'The Rebound' Starring Catherine Zeta-Jones Is A Loose Ball That No One Will Want To Grab

You don't need to see many movies to understand that in Hollywood, once a woman hits forty, she suddenly lacks relevance. She's not sexy, she's not assertive, and if she doesn't have a man, there must be something wrong with her. Just recently, Twitter users collapsed under a Super Bowl-related avalanche of anti-Madonna tweets. As she played the halftime show, many wanted to discuss the abnormality of her body, and her biceps -- she was being punished for actively trying to stay relevant at an advanced age. We should all be so lucky. In Bart Freundlich's "The Rebound," credit must be given to the filmmaker who at least has the teremity to not portray luminous leading lady Catherine Zeta-Jones as a sex object. Her Sandy, a fussy career woman, just left her husband's side due to his infidelity, moving to the city with two chatty moppets. Her interest lies in the world of sports,

Catherine Zeta-Jones Reunites With Steven Soderbergh For The Side Effects

When Steven Soderbergh's Traffic came out in 2000, Catherine Zeta-Jones was at the top of her game. She was one of the biggest actresses in Hollywood and only two years away from her first Oscar. In the years since, however, Zeta-Jones hasn't been around nearly as much. She hasn't appeared in a feature film since 2009's The Rebound, but now she's starting to make her comeback. Stephen Frears' Lay The Favorite is currently playing at the Sundance Film Festival, Adam Shankman's Rock of Ages comes out in a few months, and Gabriele Muccino's Playing The Field will be arriving in December. Now, however, she's cemented her comeback: she's working with Soderbergh again. According to Deadline, Zeta-Jones has signed on to star in The Side Effects. A thriller written by Scott Z. Burns (who also scripted Contagion and The Informant!), the thriller is also set to star Blake Lively,
