‘The Big Sick’ Star Zoe Kazan Didn’t Want to Make Another Rom-Com, Until She Fell in Love With a Real-Life Romance

‘The Big Sick’ Star Zoe Kazan Didn’t Want to Make Another Rom-Com, Until She Fell in Love With a Real-Life Romance
In the thick of awards season, “The Big Sick” star Zoe Kazan maintained the kind of multi-tasking she’s known for. In this case, that meant stumping for the Michael Showalter comedy, while also preparing for the New York city premiere of her latest play, “After the Blast.” Kazan is no stranger to juggling projects, but the timing of these two very different obligations was still ambitious, considering that both projects resulted from years of work and personal investment.

A veteran of the film industry at just 34 – her film debut was the 2003 feature “Swordswallowers and Thin Men,” which she starred in two years before graduating Yale with a degree in theatre, and that’s to say nothing of her familial pedigree, which includes a pair of directors: mother Robin Swicord and grandfather Elia Kazan – Kazan is usually looking for something new. Her current slate speaks to that variety: she’s

The Leaves: Josh Radnor to direct new sci-fi drama

How I Met Your Mother's Josh Radnor is set to direct the upcoming sci-fi drama, The Leaves...

Josh Radnor, of How I Met Your Mother and Mercy Street fame, will be exploring uncharted (for him) territory as director of Lionsgate/Summit’s sci-fi drama The Leaves, the latest supernatural comic to come alive on the big screen.

This isn’t Radnor’s first time behind the camera (though it is his first paranormal one). His first venture behind the scenes was writing and directing the buzzed-about dramedy Happythankyoumoreplease, followed by Liberal Arts, which he also starred in. Both of his films received serious accolades even though neither was a box office smash.

In an uncharacteristic move, he won’t be making an onscreen appearance this time around. The Leaves is also a departure from his usual comedic material as he enters the world of science fiction.

Film Reviews: Opening This Week (Aug. 3-7, 2015)

Film Reviews: Opening This Week (Aug. 3-7, 2015)
Fantastic Four

Joining Spider-Man in the annals of dizzyingly rapid reboots, Fox’s second stab at “Fantastic Four” comes just eight years after the first try and its sequel, which didn’t set the bar inordinately high. Yet if this latest version, with a significantly younger cast (one’s tempted to call it “Fantastic Four High”), clears that threshold, it’s just barely, drawing from a different source to reimagine the quartet’s origins without conspicuously improving them. All told, the movie feels like a protracted teaser for a more exciting follow-up that, depending on whether audiences warm to this relatively low-key approach, might never happen. (Brian Lowry)

Film Review: ‘The Runner’

Film Review: ‘The Runner’
The 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill takes a back seat to the sticky personal and career complications of an idealistic Louisiana Congressman in “The Runner,” an earnest but lifeless political drama that makes an average hour of C-span seem like “House of Cards” by comparison. One of the innumerable low-budget indies Nicolas Cage has turned to in a combined move toward career revitalization and tax-debt payback, this uninspired directing debut for producer Austin Stark (“Happythankyoumoreplease,” “Infinitely Polar Bear”) features solid work by its star but is far too staid and familiar to earn either arthouse prestige or the kind of cult that flocked to Cage’s 2009 Bayou State romp, “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans.”

Cage reveals the same general desire to be taken seriously as an actor again here that was already on display in the recent “Joe” and “The Dying of the Light,” right from an early scene

Review: 'Unexpected' is slight, but Cobie Smulders and Gail Bean shine

Review: 'Unexpected' is slight, but Cobie Smulders and Gail Bean shine
The "How I Met Your Mother" Redemption Tour is in full effect at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Jason Segel has received the best reviews of his career for his gimmick-free performance as David Foster Wallace in "The End of The Tour." Cobie Smulders is proving her mettle as a leading lady in "Unexpected." And Josh Radnor is nowhere to be seen with a follow-up to "Liberal Arts." [Sorry. Easy punchline. I actually thought "Happythankyoumoreplease" was a perfectly respectable sign of Radnor's potential as a writer-director.] Meanwhile, Neil Patrick Harris has been too busy winning Tonys and preparing to host the Oscars to be in anything Sundance-y this year, while Alyson Hannigan remains chronically underused. Smulders also stars in "Results," which premieres at Sundance on Tuesday, but at least her Festival got off to a solid start with "Unexpected." Directed by Kris Swanberg, who co-wrote with Megan Mercier, "Unexpected" is a very slight movie, almost absurdly short

Nicolas Cage Will Be The Runner

Filmmaker Austin Stark is about to begin a whole new chapter of his career, as he makes his feature-length directorial debut The Runner, with Nicolas Cage now cast in the lead role.

Having long been making waves on the festival circuit as producer of such well-received titles as Detachment (starring Adrien Brody, Christina Hendricks and Marcia Gay Harden) and Happythankyoumoreplease (which won the 2010 Audience Award at Sundance), Stark has thus far been directing short films himself – namely Killing Pedro Rivera, and Love/Death/Cobain. However, as his latest film as producer – Infinitely Polar Bear – is readied for release, Stark is now taking the helm, armed with a script that he wrote himself, and a history of producing fascinating films.

Set in the aftermath of the devastating Bp oil spill in 2010, The Runner focuses on idealistic but flawed New Orleans Congressman Colin Price (Cage), who is forced to confront his dysfunctional

Nicolas Cage Next Set to 'Pay the Ghost' and Become 'The Runner'

Just recently we caught the trailer for a new Nicolas Cage thriller called Rage that seems bound for the bargain bin. Now news from Cannes has Cage pegged to start in two very different films. First up, THR has word that the National Treasure star will venture into political drama with The Runner, which will mark the directing and writing debut of Austin Stark, a producer of Sundance indie films like Infinitely Polar Bear and Happythankyoumoreplease. The film is set in the aftermath of the 2010 Bp oil sill and follows Cage as an idealistic but flawed New Orleans congressman who is forced to confront his dysfunctional life after his career is destroyed in a sex scandal. Sounds like new territory for Cage, which could be refreshing. Secondly, Variety reports Cage will also star in Pay the Ghost, a supernatural thriller set up at Voltage Films with Uli Edel (The Baader Meinhof Complex) directing.

Nicolas Cage will star in the political drama “The Runner,” Paper Street Films and Back Lot Pictures said Friday.

Over the course of How I Met Your Mother's run, Neil Patrick Harris hosted nearly 1,000 awards shows, Josh Radnor wrote and directed two indie movies, and Jason Segel made a Muppet movie. The cast hasn't exactly been sealed off in a Himym bubble. But now that the show has ended — and oh, what an ending it was — the stars are lining up new projects. What does the future hold for the former MacLaren's regulars?Josh Radnor: Radnor told Marc Maron last week that he's writing a movie that's "a love triangle set in Poland."
