Academy Award Winner Morgan Freeman is set to star in director John Moore’s (A Good Day to Die Hard, Behind Enemy Lines, Max Payne) The Manuscript, which is based on a script by Louis Rosenberg and Joe Rosenbaum. Principal photography is set to begin on October 9th. The project is being produced by Mike Witherill (John Wick) and Mark Williams (The Accountant) and financed by The Fyzz Facility. Highland Film Group is handling international sales and will introduce the film in Toronto. Highland is co-repping the U.S. sales with CAA.

A cat and mouse style thriller, The Manuscript centers on a jailed genius convict (Morgan Freeman), who leads an ambitious junior book editor, through clues in his memoir, to the 20 million in missing diamonds he stole years earlier. As the junior editor gets closer to finding out the truth about the mystery, he falls into a greater criminal ploy that leaves his life in danger.
Freeman recently co-starred in Going in Style with Michael Caine and Alan Arkin for Warner Bros. and is currently in post-production with the film Villa Capri, which is set to be released later this year. Some of Freeman’s other notable credits include: Now You See Me, Lucy, Invictus and Batman Begins. Moore helmed A Good Day to Die Hard starring Bruce Willis, which earned over $300 million at the box office worldwide and Max Payne starring Mark Wahlberg – both for Twentieth Century Fox.
Freeman is represented by CAA. Moore is represented by Paradigm. Rosenberg and Rosenbaum are represented by Zero Gravity Management.

Richard Armitage interview on SLEEPWALKER

SLEEPWALKER is the latest film from director Elliott Lester. Troubled by bouts of sleepwalking and disturbing nightmares, graduate student Sarah Foster goes to her university's sleep research center for help. When she wakes up after her first night of being monitored, the world she lives in seems to have changed in subtle, Twilight-Zone-esque ways. In fact, every time she goes to sleep now, she wakes up in a slightly different version of her world. With the help of sleep researcher Dr. Scott White, she tries to work her way back to the reality she started in. But when they finally succeed, it’s revealed that Sarah’s world is not what she thought at all.

Today my guest is one of the stars SLEEPWALKER, Richard Armitage. Tonight we talk about his work on that film as well as his work as Thorin Oakenshiled in The Hobbit Films, as John Proctor in The Crucible, and his upcoming films Ocens 8 and the Julie Delpy directed film My Zoe.

Directed By: Savannah Bloch
Starring: Tania Nolan, Rachel Crowl, Mary Holland, Karan Soni, John Kassir, and Anne Gee Byrd

Alyssa (Nolan) wakes up to find her home pillaged and her husband missing. The burglars have taken everything, down to the photos of her husband. The police offer little help so she turns to a friend of the family Eve (Crowl) for assistance. The film is less of a "who done it" and more of a "what happened."

The prolonged second act of the film focuses on the relationship between Eve and Alyssa. The suspense of the film lingers in the background while their relationship grows. In fact, clues of what is to come are clearly laid out in a way that allows the viewer to see where the film is headed before it gets there. I'm not sure if this is by design but the effect of having the stories trajectory clearly laid out gives the audience permission to accept this blossoming relationship.

Nolan and Crowl both give stunning performances that anc…


SWEET PARENTS review 2017
Directed By: David Bly
Starring: David Bly and Leah Rudick
Written By: David Bly and Leah Rudick

Moving to New York City with ambitions of making it as an artist is an uphill battle. Hell, moving to New York with ambitions of breaking into fast food is an uphill battle. Exorbitant rent makes it difficult if not impossible to get a temp job while you audition, paint, write, or sculpt. And paying $28 for an artisan PB&J not only has a heavy tax on your pocketbook, over time it can carry a greater burden on your soul. Spending tons of money to only feel like you are barely keeping your head above water is a crushing way to exist.

SWEET PARENTS is the story of a young couple who have been living the artists struggle in NYC for close to 8 years. Will has dreams of making it as a Chef and Gabby wants to become a professional sculptor. Both start side relationships, as last ditch efforts to support their careers, in what becomes a choice between ambition and lo…
