    Internet Fundraising: Rocks Snakes

    Introduction by Peter Belsito, Guest BloggerThe below piece (really feels like a diary entry) by a filmmaker of our acquaintance introduces an interesting and worthy project attempting to raise funds over the internet. This indie feature, a dramatic film, is going through a process now that is becoming more established and useful in our indie world.What is the main problem today? As Ted Hope, profiled recently in this blog, eloquently said, "the rules for funding have fundamentally changed". Basically as we see it more and more films are coming on line every day and funding sources have not kept up (i.e. have not been increasing).What to d...

    Trent Renzor In Talks To Score & Star In 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'

    We'll be honest, we're still getting over Trent Reznor being an Oscar-winning composer -- he deserved it, we just never figured the Academy would be that progressive -- but it looks like the Nine Inch Nails frontman has found himself a very lucrative and prestigious gig scoring movies and what the h...

    Chris Pratt Joins Jason Segel & Emily Blunt In 'Five Year Engagement'; Rhys Ifans In Talks

    The last time we saw the names Jason Segel, Emily Blunt and Nicholas Stoller all together, it was for absolutely wretched "Gulliver's Travels." That said, the talent lining up for the Segel and Stoller-penned "Five Year Engagement" is proving to be promising, and if it lands anywhere in the ballpark...

    George Clooney's 'Ides Of March' Arrives On October 14th; 'Resident Evil 5' Hits Sept 14, 2012

    With shooting already underway on George Clooney's political drama "The Ides of March," Sony already has Oscar in their eyes (and are avoiding a potential marketing hiccup) by moving the film from the previously scheduled December 2011 bow to an October 14, 2011 release. In what we imagine will be a platform release (and pretty much guaranteeing a TIFF premiere for the film), the movie will run up against some major heavyweights that weekend including "The Big Year" with Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson, the remakes of "Footloose" and "The Thing," as well as the 3D swashbuckler "The Three Musketeers." The move out of December will al...

    Judd Apatow Says 'Knocked Up' Spin-Off May Include Members Of The Original Cast If Schedules Permit

    Filmmaker/Writer Also Talks Pee-Wee Herman Film He's ProducingDoing the rounds of press for the recent Blu-ray release of the 1996 dark satire "The Cable Guy" (thanks for including us guys), triple threat writer/producer/director Judd Apatow naturally fielded questions about the currently untitled "Knocked Up" spin-off that isn't a spin-off, but well, actually kinda sort of is (sorry Universal protesting). As you've heard, the film focuses on the other (and married) couple from "Knocked Up," Pete and Debbie, otherwise known as Apatow's wife Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd, and it will catch up with their relationship four or five years since the ev...
