Sarah Paulson may sit out American Horror Story: 1984

Back in April, Evan Peters announced that he’d be sitting out the ninth season of American Horror Story, and now Variety is reporting that the show’s only other cast mainstay may also be absent from American Horror Story: 1984.

According to the site, Paulson “will not appear in a significant role” in season nine, if at all, although it is possible that she’ll make a cameo. The actress has starred in all eight of the previous seasons, although she only guest starred in three episodes of season one Murder House, before being upped to a series regular from season two onward.

Paulson is currently shooting the FX series Mrs. America and will reteam with American Horror Story and American Crime Story’s Ryan Murphy on the Netflix series Ratched, a prequel to One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. She also has the feature films The Goldfinch

Annecy: Netflix Premieres Footage from First Original Animated Feature ‘Klaus’ In Innovative 2D

Netflix offered up work in progress footage from its first original animated feature, “Klaus,” at the Annecy Animation Festival on Wednesday. The wacky Santa origin story, from director Sergio Pablos (creator of “Despicable Me”), boasts innovative 2D. The streamer’s first animated Oscar contender will qualify theatrically this holiday season.

In “Klaus,” a young, lazy Scandinavian postman named Jesper (Jason Schwartzman) gets exiled by his father to a contentious village in the cold north to launch the postal service, where he meets a mysterious, white-bearded toymaker named Klaus (J.K. Simmons). The retro look has a definite Disney vibe, full of classic squash-and-stretch and illustrative design. But it’s enhanced by stunning lighting and texturing, courtesy of new tracking software from Pablo’s studio in Madrid, which takes 2D into the 21st century with some digital flourishes.

Amazon’s Awards Hopeful ‘The Report’ Hitting Prime Two Weeks After Theatrical Debut

  • Variety
Amazon’s Awards Hopeful ‘The Report’ Hitting Prime Two Weeks After Theatrical Debut
Amazon Studios’ “The Report,” a political thriller starring Adam Driver and Annette Bening, will have a two-week exclusive run in theaters starting Sept. 27 before landing on Amazon Prime Video on Oct. 11.

Amazon intends to continue rolling out the film in theaters even after its release on Prime as the studio continues to test the waters with various release strategies. The condensed window is surprising given that Amazon Studios is the only digital player that has displayed zero qualms about giving American movie theater owners a full 90-day exclusive for films before releasing them on their own streaming service. What’s more, “The Report” is perhaps the most commercially viable film Amazon bought on their Sundance shopping spree this year, thanks to its dramatic true story and awards potential.

Directed by Scott Z, “The Report” chronicles a Senate staffer who investigates the CIA’s methods of torture, from water-boarding to sleep and sensory deprivation.

Annecy: DreamWorks Animation Touts ‘Abominable’ Feature and ‘Marooned’

DreamWorks Animation screened 25 minutes of its upcoming Yeti feature, “Abominable” (September 27), along with its third short, “Marooned,” at the Annecy Animation Film Festival on Tuesday. And, for good measure, the studio also trotted out rough footage and the first trailer from “Trolls World Tour”, in which Poppy (Anna Kendrick) and Branch (Justin Timberlake) step into a musical troll war with rivals from rock, country, cool jazz, classical, and funk. IndieWire got an earlier sneak peek at the Glendale campus.

Abominable,” co-produced by Shanghai-based Pearl Studio, is a gorgeous-looking adventure about a teenage girl named Yi (Chloe Bennet), who discovers a child-like Yeti on the roof of her Shanghai apartment while playing the violin. Yi then embarks on a quest with two friends to reunite the magical creature she calls Everest (which controls nature as an expression of beauty) with its family in the Himalayas. They’re pursued by the evil

DreamWorks Animation’s ‘Abominable,’ ‘Trolls World Tour,’ ‘Marooned’ Warmly Received at Annecy

  • Variety
Annecy — “·Hello, I’m Margie Cohn, and I am president of DreamWorks….”

By that time, as she walked onto the stage at Annecy on Tuesday for a DreamWorks Animation presentation of upcoming titles, Dwa president Cohn’s self introduction had been drowned by a barrage of applause and yelps of approbation.

It’s hard to underestimate the goodwill that Universal’s DreamWorks Animation has built up over the years at Annecy, first by creating a studio as an alternative to Disney, and most recently by one of its crowning achievements, the “How to Train Your Dragon” movie trilogy, presented as works in progress at Annecy to reverent appreciation, and celebrated this year by a medley of special moments from the three movies and the presence on stage of director Dean Deblois.

That said, the two upcoming movies that Cohn and creatives previewed at Annecy – a full 25 minutes of “Abominable” and

Annecy Presents a Global Animation Slate

  • Variety
Like the art form it celebrates, the Annecy International Animated Film Festival has been growing creatively and commercially by leaps and bounds — increasingly attracting attention from Hollywood’s expanding roster of animation studios.

Annecy artistic director Marcel Jean says the number of festival goers has nearly doubled since 2013 to 11,700 in 2018. The number of projects has also soared, prompting the addition this year of a competition called Contrechamps for lower-budget, indie feature films.

And while the Mifa market at the Imperial Palace drew nearly 3,800 badge-holders last year, an annual increase of 22 percent, it’s the festival’s appreciation of and openness to the creativity of animation that draws an influential audience too tempting for studios to pass up.

“It’s really about the art of animation there, not so much about the business of animation,” says Melissa Cobb, VP of kids and family at Netflix, which is officially attending the festival
