Steve Carell’s “Foxcatcher” will debut at the 58th BFI London Film Festival for its U.K. film release on Oct. 16, 2014. Read on to learn more about it.
According to Variety, the “Foxcatcher” cast members including Steve Carell (“Crazy, Stupid, Love”), Channing Tatum (“Magic Mike”), Mark Ruffalo (“The Avengers”) and Sienna Miller (“G.I. Joe”) along with director Bennett Miller will be attending the gala sponsored by American Express.
“Foxcatcher” is a biographical drama film based on the screenplay was written by E. Max Frye and Dan Futterman. It follows the true to life story of Olympic Wrestling Champion Mark Schultz and how paranoid schizophrenic John du Pont killed Schultz’s brother, Olympic Champion Dave Schultz. The film competed for the Palme d’Or in the main competition section at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival where it debuted, with Miller bagging the Best Director Award.
One of my favorite books when I was a young kid was Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by author Judith Viorst (who I would learn later in life actually grew up in the same town as me). Like many of you, surely, I could easily relate to the story of a boy having an unbelievably bad day, leading to dreams of escaping off to Australia. The book has always stuck with me – so naturally it was a bit surreal when I, along with a small group of other journalists, got to visit the set of the movie adaptation of the story last summer when the production was filming in Los Angeles at the legendary Melody Ranch Motion Picture Studio.
Directed by Miguel Arteta (Cedar Rapids), the big screen version of the classic children’s book stars newcomer Ed Oxenbould as the 11-year-old Alexander Cooper, who runs into one of those dreaded days where absolutely nothing goes right. When he’s unable to get any sympathy from the rest of his family (Steve Carell, Jennifer Garner, Dylan Minnette, and Kerris Dorsey), however, the fates decide to have a bit of fun and “curse” them each with a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day of their own. Obviously some of the original story elements have been stretched and changed to fit a feature length film, but the core message is staying the same.
Peter Sollett’s upcoming drama Freeheld is switching out one comedian for another, as Steve Carell is set to take over for a role previously filled by Zach Galifiankis.
Deadlinereports that Carell will play Steven Goldstein in the film, which is based on a 2007 documentary of the same name. The documentary follows Laurel Hester’s battle against the New Jersey’s Domestic Partnership Act. Hester sought to amend the act in an effort to grant pension benefits to her domestic partner Stacie Andree. Carell’s character Goldstein, founder of the civil rights organization Garden State Equality, was a proponent for the cause.
The film also stars Ellen Page and Carell’s former Crazy, Stupid, Love co-star Julianne Moore. Freeheld has no release date yet, but Carell can next be seen taking a more dramatic turn in the buzzed-about Foxcatcher.
X-Men: First Class scribes Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz are going a little looney, and directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa may soon join them.
The power writing duo has been hired to write the untitled Acme movie project being developed by Warner Bros. At the same time, Ficarra and Requa, who directed Crazy Stupid Love for the studio, are in early negotiations to direct the project, which has its roots in Warners’ classic Looney Tunes cartoons.
Steve Carell, who toplined Crazy Stupid Love, is attached to star in the project, which is being produced by Dan Lin and Roy Lee. The latter two were behind the mega-successful and franchise-launching The Lego Movie, and the studio and producers are envisioning the Acme project as an event movie that will also launch a franchise.
Plot details are being kept under an anvil, but the Acme Corporation is a fictional manufacturer of crazy and sometimes dangerous products (that also tend to malfunction at the most inopportune times) that are used by many a Looney Tunes character. The company’s products are most commonly used by Wile E. Coyote in his never-ending quest to capture the Road Runner.
The movie, however, would not center on the Looney Tunes characters and is being planned as a CG/live-action hybrid.
The art on display in the North River Art Society’s GAR Hall is a little different than in most galleries.
The walls inside the Marshfield Hills facility are decorated with more than 200 small pieces of art by as many artists ranging from teenage artists to local celebrities, including comedian Steve Carell.
Each of the works, done on 8-inch square gator board are now up for sale in a silent auction, but there’s a catch — none of the works are labeled.
This is the North River Art Society’s OTB, Outside The Box.
The anonymous exhibit, now in its fourth year, welcomes artists of all ages and backgrounds to create something, in any medium they choose, on the small canvas.
Mary Curran, one of the exhibit’s co-chairwomen, loves the idea of the event because she often has seen people buy art simply because of who created it and that strategy can’t apply here.
