‘Freaky Friday’ Musical Gets Premiere Date On Disney Channel
August 10 will be Freaky Friday for Disney Channel. The cable net has set that midsummer date for the premiere of its musical version of the classic mother-daughter body-swap.

Directed by Steve Carr, the latest take on Mary Rodgers’ classic book stars Heidi Blickenstaff, who played the mom role in the stage version, and Cozi Zuehlsdorff of the Dolphin Tale films as the bickering mother and daughter who both wish they could switch places with the other for a day. But be careful what you wish for: they magically wake up one freaky Friday in each other’s body and begin a journey of self-discovery and empathy neither one could have imagined.

Disney also made Freaky Friday theatrical features in 1976 starring Jodie Foster and Barbara Harris, and in 2003 with Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis. Its 1995 telefilm version starred Gaby Hoffmann and Shelley Long.

Bridget Carpenter wrote the Freaky Friday screenplay based on her stage adaptation,

‘Wesley The Owl’ Book Getting Screen Adaptation By The Jim Henson Company

  • Deadline
The Jim Henson Company has acquired the rights to Stacey O’Brien’s bestselling memoir Wesley the Owl: The Remarkable Love Story of an Owl and His Girl, with Dolphin Tale co-writer Karen Janszen attached to pen the adaptation.

Wesley recounts the true story of young Caltech biologist Stacey O’Brien. In 1985, Stacey is asked by her mentor to raise Wesley, a baby barn owl with a wing injury that will prevent it from surviving in the wild. What’s intended to be an objective study of owl behavior blossoms into a unique, hilarious and incredible story of discovery, persistence and love spanning 19 years.

Described as part Marley & Me, part Fly Away Home, Wesley dives inside the one-of-a-kind relationship between “an owl and his girl” and redefines expectations of what it means to love, to survive and, ultimately, to become whole. When O’Brien develops her own life-threatening illness, the

‘The Florida Project’: How Sean Baker and His Collaborators Used Instagram, Target, and Motels to Find its Cast
Despite casting Willem Dafoe and working with a $2 million budget — the biggest in Sean Baker’s career — the director knew that his sixth feature, “The Florida Project,” couldn’t abandon what’s become his personal trademark: populating his films with untapped talent.

“For me, Spike Lee was always one that really did it right,” Baker said. “He would have big A-list stars in his films, and then he would always give fresh faces to some of the bigger supporting characters. He would be introducing so many new faces to the world, new talent to the industry, which is I think really important.”

The Florida Project” has received glowing reviews (IndieWire gave it an A-, and it’s currently rated 95 percent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes) and received multiple awards, including Golden Globes and SAG nominations for Dafoe.

Afm: International reps discuss incentives, filming opportunities

Afm: International reps discuss incentives, filming opportunities
Panelists were attending Screen’s World of Locations breakfast at Afm.

Film commissioners from Panama, Namibia and St Petersburg/Clearwater in Florida told an audience of producers and festival programmers of their desire to boost their industries at Screen International’s World of Locations breakfast and panel here on Friday.

“Our industry is growing and we have so many stories to tell,” said Maria Antonia Vergara of Panama Film Commission, which offers a 15% cashback incentive that could rise to 25% within a year once the measure is approved by lawmakers.

Narcotics drama Escobar: Paradise Lost starring Benicio del Toro was the first film to apply for the incentive. The France-Belgium-Spain co-production invested $5m into the local economy and qualified for the incentive because it met the requirements of a $3m minimum spend. That threshold could change to make more productions eligible. This will be of use to local film-makers and meets the mandate of the commission, which was set

Former The Walking Dead Actress Juliana Harkavy Joins The Cast Of Arrow Season 5

According to Variety, Juliana Harkavy (The Walking Dead, Constantine, Dolphin Tale) has joined the cast of Arrow, and will make her debut during the back half of the current fifth season. Harkavy will play a detective named Tina Boland, who doesn't appear to be an established DC Comics character (I may be wrong about that, so please feel free to set me straight). Though it doesn't seem like she'll be a villain, from the sounds of this character description she will most certainly be a thorn in Oliver Queen's side. "A detective formerly of Central City, Boland is brash yet tactful, tough, speaks her mind, and is not the easiest person to impress. She also has a problem with vigilantes like Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) and his new team of recruits: Wild Dog (Rick Gonzalez), Artemis (Madison McLaughlin), Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and Ragman (Joe Dinicol). Arrow returns tomorrow night with "The Human Target.

Why 2016 Has Turned into Film's Year of the Wild Child

Why 2016 Has Turned into Film's Year of the Wild Child
Pete’s Dragon officially marks the Year of the Wild Child. The Aug. 11 release is about the discovery of a 10-year old boy living deep in the forest under the care of a dragon. In the last 10 months, the Orphan Raised by Wild Animals story has popped up in four films: Spot in The Good Dinosaur, Mowgli in The Jungle Book, Tarzan in The Legend of Tarzan, and now Pete in Pete’s Dragon. Here’s why it’s become a popular trope… · Kids love animals in movies. The more connected the young protagonist is with the animals, the more kids tend to connect with the film (see Dolphin Tale, Air Bud movies). The idea that they are equals with creatures – or even “be the boss” over large, wild animals – is more exciting than eating pancakes for dinner. · Living amongst untamed creatures and becoming one of them is one of our deep-rooted survivalist fantasies.

Vicetone Team Up With Cozi Zuehlsdorff On “Nevada”

Vicetone have returned with a new single this week, teaming up with actress and vocalist Cozi Zuehlsdorff for their latest effort on “Nevada.” Zuehlsdorff first made a name for herself starring in the Dolphin Tale films, before kicking off a career as a singer. She previously collaborated with Monstercat artist Hellberg as well, so her presence on “Nevada” is not as unlikely as it may seem.

Vicetone have returned to their roots for their latest effort, blending their early progressive house influences with catchy pop songwriting. “Nevada” opens with a twinkling synth progression, ringing out an enticing melody as Zuehlsdorff’s lighthearted vocals join the mix. The production is airy and consistently dancey, creating a suitable backdrop for the radio friendly elements while bringing plenty of energy along for the dance floors.
