    Toby Kebbell Joins Brit Marling, Ellen Page & Alexander Skarsgard In 'The East'

    There may be no sign of their first collaboration, "The Sound of My Voice," appearing in theaters yet -- the disappointing box office take of "Another Earth" probably means a rethink in marketing -- but that hasn't stopped Fox Searchlight, writer/star Brit Marling and director Zal Batmanglij from pl...

    Fox Searchlight Backing 'The East' From 'The Sound Of My Voice' Duo Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij

    The story of recent the Sundance and SXSW hit “Sound Of My Voice” is pretty straightforward. Concerning a couple of documentary filmmakers who infiltrate a cult, the film, on paper, seems suspenseful and ripe for a penetrating insight into the nature of perception versus reality and an exploration of the idea of how we form bonds that unite us. But onscreen, “Sound Of My Voice” demands even more attention, as director Zal Batmanglij and co-writer and star Brit Marling have created something altogether haunting and unexpected (as we noted in our review). When plot elements surface suggesting that this may be a sort of “genre” picture, the exec...

    'Sound Of My Voice' Director Zal Batmanglij & Co-Writer/Star Brit Marling To Reteam For 'The East'

    We were over the moon for Zal Batmanglij and Brit Marling's "Sound of My Voice" at SXSW, a queasy, often haunting story of a couple attempting to exploit a creepy underground cult. The expectation was that director Batmanglij and co-writer/star Marling would respectively move in different directions...
