    Sundance Dealbook: Searchlight Lands Martha Marcy May Marlene, Magnolia/Participant Get Page One

    During my panel today with Page One director Andrew Rossi and his star subject, NYT media columnist David Carr, at Sundance's Bing Bar on Main, a man came over and told me that Magnolia/Participant had acquired the film. So I broke the news to the press conference--if not in this blog. You can only do one thing at a time. On Saturday I had just told Participant's Jim Berk and Ricki Strauss how much I liked the doc, which I watched before the fest. They told me they were looking for movies to partner on. Participant effectively got word out to movie audiences on An Inconvenient Truth and Waiting for Superman through their activist outreach. T...

    Paddy Considine To Write & Direct Ghost Story 'The Leaning' For His Next Film

    Paddy Considine is a longtime character actor who really deserves some bigger exposure. He's disappeared into roles in a number of solid films including "In America," "Cinderella Man," "Hot Fuzz," "The Bourne Ultimatum" and more. Any time he appears on screen it's like we've never seen him before, but the actor is already taking the talent he's long displayed in front of the camera behind it. He's hitting Sundance this year with his debut feature, "Tyrannosaur." Starring Peter Mullan and Olivia Colman, the film chronicles the relationship between a violence-fuelled man in search of redemption, and a woman who works in a Christian charity shop...
