    Guest Post: Money and Independent Film, Climbing the Financing Mountain by Elizabeth Dell

    There was a time when all I wanted to do was make my first movie. And when sweat, tears and a lot of luck turned into a movie, all I could think about was getting it out into the world – convincing distributors and Showtime viewers and DVD buyers (those brave, defiant three!) to love B-GIRL as I do...

    Jason Bateman & Melissa McCarthy To Commit 'ID Theft'

    It has been one helluva summer for R-rated comedies with some big successes ("The Hangover Part II," "Bridesmaids," "Horrible Bosses") and some notable misses ("The Change-Up," "30 Minutes Or Less") and Jason Bateman has been on the receiving end of both.

    Bradley Cooper Flies From 'The Crow,' Mark Wahlberg & Channing Tatum Sought To Go Goth

    The road to "The Crow" remake/reboot hasn't been without its bumps. Things seemed to moving along swimmingly with Relativity pushing the project ahead, with "28 Weeks Later" director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo at the helm and Bradley Cooper set to take the lead role. Things got derailed slightly when The Weinstein Company launched a lawsuit against Relativity regarding the rights to the franchise -- the case is now in arbitration -- it put the project on hold for a couple of months, enough time for Cooper to start booking his plans for the rest of the year, and even though the legal imbroglio is still being resolved, a new writer, Alex Tse ("Wa...
