Chris Longo Tony Sokol Dec 13, 2018

Radiohead, Janet Jackson, and Stevie Nicks are among the new class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame made it official: Radiohead, Janet Jackson, Stevie Nicks, Def Leppard, The Cure, Roxy Music, and the Zombies are part of the 2019 inductee class.

The Cleveland-based Hall of Fame will host its induction ceremony at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on March 29th. HBO and SiriusXM will air edited versions of the ceremony at a later date.

Stevie Nicks becomes the first woman to be twice inducted into the Rock Hall. She was previously honored in 1998 as a member of Fleetwood Mac. Nicks’ 1981 solo debut, “Bella Donna,” yielded four hit singles, including “Edge of Seventeen.” Nicks released eight solo albums in her career, earning eight Grammy nominations.

Hear Why Def Leppard Loves Depeche Mode’s ‘Personal Jesus’

For many of us, 2018 was the Year of the Leppard. The hard rock band headlined and sold out Madison Square Garden for the first time, got nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and at long last, made their entire catalog available to stream.

Def Leppard marked the occasion at Spotify Studios by recording a cover of one of their live show warmup songs, “Personal Jesus,” by Depeche Mode. It felt like a surprising choice, but the connection between the two disparate Eighties bands is much deeper,

The Long Path to a Release Date Continues with Sci-fi Thriller Replicas: Second Trailer

Production on the sci-fi thriller Replicas began way back in 2014. In 2014, Tanya Wexler (Hysteria) was expected to director. THR reported that the film would begin shooting shortly after: "production [was] scheduled to begin in spring 2015." Likely, Replicas completed shooting that same year. And, post-production was completed in 2017, according to IMDb. However, the film was eventually shot by director Jeffrey Nachmanoff. In 2017, Replicas released its first trailer. During this same year, the film had an appearance at the New York Comic Con. Now, the film has a second trailer (found below), along with more release details. Notably, Keanu Reeves (John Wick 2) plays Will Foster, a renowned scientist. Will hopes to bring his family back, after their tragic death - involving a car accident. Eventually, he transfers their consciousnesses into automatons, with horrifying results. Since the film's completion in 2017, Replicas has sold in several foreign markets,...

‘Replicas’: Keanu Reeves’ Sci-Fi Thriller Releases a Teaser a Year After Its Full Trailer
Keanu Reeves signed on to star in the sci-fi thriller Replicas back in 2014. That was…*checks calendar*…four years ago, and the movie still hasn’t come out yet. Jeffrey Nachmanoff (Traitor) took over the director’s chair from original director Tanya Wexler (Hysteria), so that may have been part of the reason for the delay.

Hear Def Leppard’s Heavy Metal Cover of Depeche Mode’s ‘Personal Jesus’

Def Leppard recorded a nearly note-perfect rendition of the title track of their 1987 blockbuster album Hysteria, as well as a heavy cover of Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus,” at Spotify’s recording studio for the streaming service’s “Spotify Singles” series. “Hysteria” features a little bluesier guitar soloing here and there and it lacks the gargantuan wall of vocals on the original, but it’s an otherwise faithful performance of the song, which made it to Number 10 on the Hot 100.

Alice Eve Boards Sci-Fi Thriller Replicas With Keanu Reeves

Star Trek Into Darkness alum Alice Eve has closed a deal to star in Replicas, according to Deadline.

Eve, who is primed to have a busy 2016 thanks to roles in The Stolen, Bees Make Honey and James Oakley’s mob drama The Brits Are Coming, will play Mona, wife to Keanu Reeves’ male lead Will Foster.

Unfortunately, story details remain thin on the ground at the time of writing. That being said, Replicas is shaping up to be an old-school sci-fi that blends some thematic elements of Reeves-fronted thriller John Wick. Foster is a “neuroscientist whose family is killed in a traffic accident and will stop at nothing to bring them back — pitting himself against a government-controlled laboratory, a police task force and the physical laws of science.”

At one point, Replicas was set to be helmed by Tanya Wexler (Hysteria), although Deadline now reveals that it is Jeffrey Nachmanoff

The Horizon Award To Recognize Four Women Directors at Sundance 2016

Continuing their support for women directors, Horizon Award co-founding producers Cassian Elwes, Lynette Howell Taylor, and Christine Vachon, announced the winners of the second annual Horizon Award. Academy Award nominee Chloë Sevigny will bestow up-and-coming filmmakers Macarena Gaona, Juliette Gosselin, Shanice Malakai Johnson, and Florence Pelletier with the Horizon Award at a reception in Park City, Utah, with creative talent, producers, entertainment executives and media in attendance to celebrate these rising women directors and their achievements in independent filmmaking.

The Horizon Award ceremony and reception will take place on Sunday, January 24th, 2016 at 6:30 pm at the WireImage Portrait Studio at Village at the Lift (825 Main Street, Park City), co-hosted by Jeff Vespa.

The Horizon Award is an annual award that seeks to identify and mentor talented, up-and-coming female directors – the primary goal being to support women directors early enough in their development to help them overcome the hurdles in advancing their learning curve and careers.

In addition to the Horizon Award, the four winners will receive grants from the Adrienne Shelly Foundation. The Foundation supports the artistic achievements of female filmmakers through a series of grants that reflect Adrienne Shelly’s dedication to the art of filmmaking and her own successful transition from actress to filmmaker.

This year’s winners are:

Horizon Award First Place

Juliette Gosselin (University of Quebec in Montreal) & Florence Pelletier (Concordia University, Montreal)

Co-directors of "Mes Anges à Tête Noire"

Horizon Award Runners-Up

Macarena (Macqui) Gaona (New York University) Director of "Channel 999 and Channel 1000"

Shanice Malakai Johnson (Scottsdale Community College) Director of "End to the Suffering"

On making the announcement, Cassian Elwes said: “I’m so excited to announce the winners of the second annual Horizon Award. This year’s overwhelming number of submissions and caliber of work made it very hard indeed to pick just one winner – the jury identified one grand prize winner, and two runners-up. Additionally, we have added new partners to our already formidable team – proving that not only is the move towards gender equality in the zeitgeist, but that there are very real advocates amongst our peers. After the recent summit for systemic change (hosted by Sundance and Women in Film), I am more convinced than ever that we can make a difference and that history is on our side. I remain steadfastly committed to the idea that, one day soon, women will have exactly the same opportunities as men to direct movies.”

Franklin Leonard, Founder and CEO of The Black List and one of the award’s original advocates added: “We are passionate supporters of this award that recognizes fresh voices and perspectives in storytelling. This effort mirrors our own effort – the Black List's 500 Feminist Films project, created by our Director of Community, Kate Hagen. We look forward to mentoring the winners in the year to come.”

The jury was comprised of 38 influential directors, producers, and executives from the filmmaking community who viewed 483 short film submissions from over 200 colleges and universities world-wide, including the U.S., Canada, England, Australia, India, China, South Africa, Scotland, France, Mexico, Portugal, Columbia, Brazil, Russia, Serbia, the Ukraine, and more. This year, submissions increased by over one hundred from last year, with additional countries and universities participating. Submissions were received from Nyu, USC, UCLA, Chapman, Emerson, Penn State, Loyola Marymount, University of Wisconsin, University of Washington, Syracuse, Tcu, Ryerson (Toronto), Oxford, University of Sydney, University of Melbourne, University of Delhi, and more.

Now in its second year, the Horizon Award provides an all-expense-paid trip for the winning female college students to the Sundance Film Festival, where they will have the opportunity to present their films to some of the industry’s most influential names. The winners receive mentorship, festival access, and important introductions by Elwes, Howell, and Vachon to agents, producers, executives, festival staff, and other influencers throughout the Sundance Film Festival.

The Horizon Award was founded by producer, Cassian Elwes ("Margin Call," "All is Lost," "Dallas Buyers Club"), and Michelle Satter, Founding Director, Sundance Institute’s Feature Film Program, in response to a Sundance Institute and Women In Film Los Angeles study that revealed that only 4.2% of the top 100 films each year from 2002-2013 were directed by women. Elwes partnered with Howell ("Captain Fantastic," "Mississippi Grind," "Big Eyes," "The Place Beyond the Pines:), and Vachon ( "Goat," "Carol," "Boys Don’t Cry," "One Hour Photo," "Far From Heaven"), to create the award as an opportunity for young female directors to have mentorship and networking opportunities in conjunction with Sundance, the home of American Independent film.

You can see links for more info on the study:

Phase I and II

Phase III

Sponsors and Partners for the 2016 Horizon Award are: The Black List, CreativeFuture, The Creative Mind Group, Done To Your Taste Catering, FilmLA, Indiegogo, Mprm Communications, the Adrienne Shelly Foundation, Sundance Institute, Twitter, Verge, Vimeo, WireImage, Adina Design, and Women in Film. This impressive group has come together to support an award that they hope will continue to identify, nurture, and launch the careers of future female directors for years to come.
