The genre-blender, written and directed by Erik Peter Carlson (The Toy Soldiers), stars a ton of familiar faces including Najarra Townsend (Contracted), NY stage actor Kevin Pinassi (star of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks revival) , Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan), ex-con actor Dave Vescio (Hick) and horror star and veteran Maria [Continued ...]
Portes’ debut novel “Hick,” published in 2007, was basis for the 2011 movie of the same name (pictured above), starring Chloe Moretz, Alec Baldwin, Eddie Redmaye, Juliette Lewis and Blake Lively. She then teamed up with Silverman on setting up screenplays adapted from her novels “Anatomy of a Misfit” and “Liberty.”
Harper Collins announced last month that it had committed to Portes’ multi-book franchise “Henry and Eva,” set in Big Sur and following the titular 9-year-old brother and 11-year-old sister as they attempt to solve the mystery of their parents’ deaths. They do their sleuthing under the watchful eye of their greedy uncle, his tacky wife and ghosts.
Their talents are enhanced by their ability to communicate with ghosts – the first being those of their murdered parents. The
Check your expectations at the opening credits with The Curse of Downers Grove, a muddled teen scream mix of urban legend meets self-fulfilling prophecy metaphor. Many will be unable to bypass taking a look, however, upon learning the schlocky titled genre effort was penned by Bret Easton Ellis, his first cinematic project following the infamous and ultimately ill-fated Paul Schrader/Lindsey Lohan experiment The Canyons (2013). An ambitious thread of something greater sometimes resonates in this adolescent angst tale spiked with violence and a smattering of watered down sexuality (at least compared to what we know Ellis can imagine), but is ultimately lost in the tonally awkward jumps between genre elements and out-of-touch flourishes as concerns law-enforcement and teenagers.
The eponymous suburb of Chicago is the home of a deadly curse, or at least that’s the urban legend of the
In the titular Chicago suburb (though the production was shot in Southern California), there’s an alleged curse on a high school recently built on contested Native American land: Each year, one senior dies just before graduation. It’s a subject of endless fascination for students,
Twenty years ago, Terry Zwigoff’s Crumb claimed the Grand Jury Prize Documentary award, Living in Oblivion‘s Tom Dicillo was honored with the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award, and Edward Burns’ micro-budgeted The Brothers McMullen (there is a read-worthy, lively, eleventh hour account on how it was submitted to the fest in Ted Hope’s “Hope
Eddie Redmayne has been on a quick ascension path in his film career, while also conquering television and theater in his native England. After notable roles in the last three years in “My Week with Marilyn” and “Les Misérables,” Redmayne has took on the difficult task of playing Stephen Hawking from a healthy, genius-level university student to the wheelchair bound and computer-voiced theorist with a degenerative nerve disease (Als, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease). The performance is remarkable on many levels, but especially in communicating the soul and love – beyond a physical handicap – upon which a human being exists.
Eddie Redmayne is
The four will star alongside two-time Academy Award nominee and two-time Golden Globe winner John Travolta, Oscar winner Christopher Plummer (Beginners, The Last Station) and Venice Film Festival Award winner for Best New Young Actor Tye Sheridan (Joe, Mud, The Tree Of Life).
The film started shooting today, October 7th on location in Boston, Massachusetts.
BAFTA and Emmy Award-winning director Philip Martin (BBC’s “Wallander”) is directing from a script by Richard D’Ovidio (The Call).
The Forger tells the story of a former child art prodigy and second generation petty thief, Ray Cutter (Travolta) who arranges to buy his
If I was asked to name a young actor or actress that I thought was going to be a big deal in the coming years of cinema, I’d have a few to choose from, but one name at the top of that list would have to be Chloe Moretz. Her performances in films like Kick-Ass, Hugo and Let Me In have been memorable and she seems to just keep getting better as she gets older.
Hick, in which Ms. Moretz is the main star, is a funny sort of film. An independent movie filmed in 2011, prior to Hugo, Hick was made on a fairly small budget and directed by Derick Martini, a guy whose directing chops are limited, very limited. This made for an experience
When small town teenager Luli (Moretz) escapes to Las Vegas, she leaves behind her alcoholic and abusive parents. Armed with her smarts, a pistol and pocket money, she hitchhikes her way west. Along the way, Luli crosses paths with Eddie (Eddie Redmayne), an unstable rebel with questionable motives and Glenda (Blake Lively), a cocaine-snorting drifter on the run.

If she signs on, Moretz will play the female lead, a character named Teri. Apparently, director Antoine Fuqua was looking for an actress that was a bit older to take the part but Moretz recently participated in a table read for the role and blew everyone away. Of course, the character of Terri immediately draws parallels to Jodie Foster’s role in Taxi Driver and we can easily see
It looks a lot of fun, with those country hints of Killer Joe but with Moretz on fine form. There’s also the addition of Redmayne, the Les Miserables star who’s in high demand after a great performance in the musical epic.
