Damien Chazelle attached to TV musical drama 'The Eddy'

48 minutes ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Musical drama takes place in contemporary multicultural Paris.

Oscar-winning La La Land director Damien Chazelle is attached to direct The Eddy.

The story takes place in a contemporary multicultural Paris that revolves around a club, its owner, the house band and the volatile city that surrounds them. 

Jack Thorne, who recently wrote the play Harry Potter And The Cursed Child with J.K. Rowling, will write the project. 

Grammy-winning songwriter and producer Glen Ballard, best known for co-writing Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill and Michael Jackson’s Man In The Mirror, and Six Feet Under showrunner Alan Poul are attached as executive producers.

Chazelle became the youngest best director Oscar winner for La La Land at the age of 32 in February, and rose to fame with Whiplash, which he wrote and directed.  

Upcoming projects include a reunion with La La Land star Ryan Gosling (pictured with Chazelle) on First Man, Universal Pictures’ [link »

A24 After ‘Moonlight’: Why They’re Finally Ready To Conquer the Older Arthouse Crowd

50 minutes ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A24 cemented its perception as the new-model indie distributor when Barry Jenkins’ “Moonlight” won three Oscars, including that dramatic best-picture win. So what does the upstart indie, hailed for holding the skeleton key that unlocks the precious millennial demo, do for an encore?

The Tribeca Film Festival showcased three upcoming A24 releases, all of which seem oddly retro. There’s Yiddish-language Hasidic family drama “Menashe,” World War II costume drama “The Exception,” starring Oscar-winner Christopher Plummer as Kaiser Wilhelm II, and “The Lovers,” starring Debra Winger and Tracy Letts as an unhappy older married couple. Suddenly, the new boss looks a lot like the old one.

What gives? This older-demo arthouse trio could easily carry the signature blue-and-white logo of venerable specialty distributor Sony Pictures Classics. But don’t be deceived by appearances. A24 is a far cry from older-generation studio indies like Spc and Fox Searchlight, which tend to follow an established playbook. »

Bethany Ashton Wolf’s “Forever My Girl” Acquired by Roadside

1 hour ago | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Bethany Ashton Wolf and “Forever My Girl” star Jessica Rothe: Wolf’s Instagram account

Forever My Girl” has found a home. Variety writes that Roadside Attractions has acquired domestic distribution rights to Bethany Ashton Wolf’s romance about high school sweethearts, missed opportunities, and the lure of fame.

Based on Heidi McLaughlin’s 2012 novel of the same name, “Forever My Girl” centers on a country music star “who left his bride at the altar choosing fame and fortune instead,” the source summarizes. An unexpected trip back to his hometown forces him to face “the consequences of all that he left behind.”

“We fell in love with this special movie the moment we saw it,” said Roadside’s Howard Cohen and Eric d’Arbeloff. “‘Forever My Girl’ is the kind of film that will play everywhere but we believe it will play especially well in the heartland. It has tested through the roof around the country — far above the norms with sensational reactions across the board.”

Alex Roe (“The 5th Wave”) and Jessica Rothe (“Mary + Jane,” “La La Land”) star in the feature.

Jennifer Monroe (“The Zookeeper’s Wife”) is among the project’s producers, and its EPs include Alison Semenza King (“Powder Blue”) and Nicole Stojkovich.

Wolf’s first feature, “Little Chenier,” premiered at the 2006 Austin Film Festival. She’s written and directed a number of shorts, including “Midnight Juliet” and “Love Scene.”

Bethany Ashton Wolf’s “Forever My Girl” Acquired by Roadside was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

What is the piece of pop culture we all need right now?

26 April 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Everything from 1984 to La La Land has been called the thing we need right now, but what is the definitive answer? We take a forensic look at the situation

Look at the headlines. “The Handmaid’s Tale is the prestige miniseries we need right now”, says Yahoo. “The Handmaid’s Tale is just the book we need to see on-screen right now” says Bustle. “A Handmaid’s Tale is the dystopian warning we need right now”, says some blog I’ve never heard of.

From this, we can assume one of two things. First, The Handmaid’s Tale is an important and timely piece of culture that we actually do need right now. Alternatively, the fad for proclaiming that things are what we need right now desperately needs to stop. For example, here »
