    Aline Brosh McKenna To Adapt Graphic Novel 'Rust' For 20th Century Fox

    There are quite a few screenwriters that we here at The Playlist think are incredibly overrated. Someone like Allan Loeb ("21," "The Switch") comes to mind, but Aline Brosh McKenna wouldn't be far behind him. She's a rom-com writing star, penning films like "27 Dresses" and "Morning Glory," though s...

    Sean Bean To Bring Awesomeness To Untitled 'Snow White' Project

    "Snow White and the Huntsmen" seems to have all the buzz, adding multiple actors as the dwarves in separate announcements over the past few days. By increasing the film's pre-production profile, the picture vaulted over the surprisingly buzzless untitled "Snow White" film currently shooting under director Tarsem Singh, and slated for a release almost three months earlier. While the film boasts Julia Roberts as the wicked queen menacing Lily Collins as our heroine, Armie Hammer as the dashing Prince Alcott and Nathan Lane as the oh god stop right there you're sold on Lane. Fortunately, it does appear that the Singh project will have that extra...

    Guest Post: Joke and Biagio "How to Build an Emotional Connection with Your Audience"

    Posts about how to use crowdfunding effectively have become a bit of mainstay in the indie film blogosphere. But that doesn't make them any less crucial. Crowdfunding has become the most-talked about new tool in a filmmaker's arsenal for getting your movie financed. It's an intimidating commitment, particularly if you want to do it well. Luckily we all have a community to turn to, a community that has been very generous with their shared knowledge. Joke and Biagio, a husband & wife filmmaking team, collected their favorite & most helpful crowdfunding posts recently -- and having included a post from this site SPRANG to my attention. The...

    This Saturday, Check Out the Last Panel on Distribution You Ever Need to Attend.

    I've had a great time putting together a series of events this month to celebrate indieWIRE's 15th anniversary. Although I've only been involved with the site a fraction of that time, I'm always amazed when I hear from longtime readers of the site. indieWIRE has been around to cover some of the biggest accomplishments in (largely American) cinema in recent years. That's what the indieWIRE at 15 series at 92YTribeca and the premiere of the Sundance hit "Bellflower" on Friday are meant to recognize. But there's another aspect of this world--the business side--that indieWIRE has also followed closely. We'll tap into that side of the story on Sat...
