    Guest Post: Step One: Finding the Right Producer by Zoje Stage

    In 2008, I won a Fellowship in Screenwriting from the New York Foundation for the Arts. As I left the party in my strapless black dress and uncomfortable shoes I had one thought: "Please dear gods let this be the beginning of my professional career, and NOT just the highlight of years of effort." I have had the same goal for twenty years: to make thought-provoking independent films that explore the complexities, frailties, and dichotomies of the human species. Winning a NYFA Fellowship was both the validation and kick in the ass that I needed, and I set myself a singular goal: to direct "The Machine Who Loved" as my first professional feature...

    Theater Review, Spider-Man: A Cheesy Vegas Spectacle

    After way more than $65 million, a near-death experience by one of the actors, the firing of director Julie Taymor and a windfall for late-night comedians, the newly refurbished Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark turns out to be a cheesy Vegas spectacle. To be blunt: Act I sucks. Really, really bad. Act ...

    Rob Lowe To Play Drew Peterson?

    So Rob Lowe is gonna play Drew Peterson in a Lifetime movie. At first I got him confused with Drew's fellow psychopath wife-killer SCOTT Peterson and things made a little more sense, but, honestly, how is this:

    Relativity Buys 'Machine Gun Preacher' From Lionsgate In Hopes Of Getting Gerard Butler An Oscar Nom

    Considering his run of recent performances... actually, let's strike that and start again. Considering almost every performance he's ever given, ever, perhaps bar a decent vocal turn in "How To Train Your Dragon," the idea of Gerard Butler as a potential Oscar nominee is a bizarre one: this is, afte...

    The Amazing Race: AMPAS Shake Up Oscar Race; Between 5 And 10 Films Will Get Best Pic Noms

    Movies Must Get More Than 5% Of Vote To QualifyThe decision, starting with the 2010 ceremony, to nominate ten films for Best Picture at the Academy Awards was, while not unprecedented, one of the biggest shake-ups in the 80+ years of the Oscars. Widely believed to be driven by plummeting ratings, and the failure of Christopher Nolan's critically praised superhero megahit "The Dark Knight" to pick up a nomination in 2009, the move widened the field, seeing both blockbusters and small indie films sneak in to the final selection. While ratings have picked up, particularly thanks to one of the biggest-grossing awards fields in recent memory this ...
