KEANU REEVES AND WINONA RYDER TO STAR IN DESTINATION WEDDING FOR DIRECTOR VICTOR LEVIN



DESTINATION WEDDING sees Reeves and Ryder renew a fan-favorite on-screen partnership that began with Francis Ford Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992) and has included Richard Linklater's A Scanner Darkly (2006).  Most recently, Reeves reprised his role in John Wick: Chapter 2 for Summit Entertainment and received critical acclaim in Marti Noxon’s To The Bone, which was released by Netflix last month.  Ryder has been lauded for her performance in the immensely poplar Netflix series Stranger Things, which earned her a Golden Globe® and Screen Actors Guild® nomination for her role as “Joyce Byers”. Stranger Things 2 will premiere on Netflix on October 27th.

Writer-Director Levin's debut film, 5 to 7 (2015) starred Anton Yelchin, BΓ©rΓ©nice Marlohe, Frank Langella and Glenn Close.  A Golden Globe winner and four-time Emmy nominee, his previous writing work has included Mad About You, Mad Men, Win a Date with Tad Hamilton (2004) and Then She Found Me (2008).  He is currently an executive producer, writer and director for the critically-acclaimed Starz comedy Survivor's Remorse.

Lyon and Dell teamed for this project.  Previous credits for Lyon include Gattaca, Erin Brockovich, Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!, and Edge of Darkness.  Dell’s credits include B-Girl, and the series Logan Paul Vs.

“The Fyzz is incredibly excited to work with Vic, Gail, Elizabeth and Cassian and to be a part of Destination Wedding," The Fyzz Facility’s Robert Jones said.  "When comedy is seated in character and truth it’s both funny and moving, and on that basis Vic’s screenplay is one of the best I’ve read in a long time. Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves are wonderfully skilful actors and their chemistry on-screen truly brings these irascible characters to life. Their unswerving commitment to the project is a testament to both material and director.”

“Elizabeth and I have both known Vic a long time," Gail Lyon said, "and it’s been our collective pleasure to work together, along with Cassian and The Fyzz, to bring this movie to life. Keanu and Winona bring a lot of
history and chemistry to their roles, which adds a wonderful dimension to their performances and their dynamic.”

Ambition is a powerful drug that can inspire positive change. It can force you outside of the comfortable boxes you place yourself in. It asks you to stretch and reimagine not only the person you are but the person you could be. Most great men and women have a deep relationship with what they see as their purpose. This is a personality trait never driven by or limited to the pragmatic and there in lies the problem. Logic be damned, when a sense of determination is your north star. 
Michael Vaughn (Sommer) is an ambitious psychic on the road promoting a book that no one is buying. Using parlor tricks and audience plants Vaughn helps people "connect" with loved ones who have passed on. Somewhere in between a traveling preacher and a low-rent John Edwards he sees himself as a man destined …

SONG OF SOLOMON Review

Exorcism films do not begin and end with William Friedkin's THE EXORCIST. With entries as varied as BEETLEJUICE, CONSTANTINE, and THE RITE, the exorcism sub-genre of horror films is far more diverse than many immediately recognize.  

With THE SONG OF SOLOMON director Stephen Brio has added a unique take on the possession movie. In his film, the Catholic church attempts to save the soul of Mary (Jessica Cameron) who appears to have been possessed after witnessing her father's brutal suicide.

Mary is off camera while her father takes his own life. In a scene that could play as a confessional or an accusation, the family's patriarch lists off the reasons why he is being forced to use his knife on Mary and himself. He details how they were a good, loving family and he can't understand why she is accusing him of abuse. Using demonic control as a metaphor for trauma survival is something so natural, I can't believe it's not woven into every film of this kind.
