Written for the screen by Virgina Korus Spragg, Max Mayer (The West Wing, Alias) will direct the movie based on the contemporary coming-of-age novel by Pete Fromm. The story centers around Lucy Diamond, the spirited teen daughter of self-absorbed parents played by Marsden and Danes.
Shooting is set to begin May 9 right here in New Mexico. The Wrap reports today that the lead role of Lucy Diamond has yet to be cast. Full character description(s) and recent submission info. after the jump >> » Read the full post
While Fright Night holds tight to its official trailer the Wholly New Mexico film that’s destined for a limited release before hitting the DVD bin and Netflix circuit makes a great showing in this theatrical trailer!
Wily willed co-star Mickey Rourke made headlines last week yo-yoing between trashing the flick and reneging to reining-in powerful statements made about his leading lady, the lovely Megan Fox.
Last week Rourke told peeps at a Hollywoo party that PP is just a “terrible, terrible movie” and then later dropped the cool waters of ‘you ain’t all that’ on his previous statements about Fox being one of the most talented actresses of all time, by reemphasizing, “that I’ve worked with” then allegedly adding the patented Mickey Rourke f-you smirk that keeps us all coming back for more no matter what revision of his face we’re confronted with.
Here’s Mick’s rebuttal to the mag that printed his less than stellar review of Passion Play:
“Hey, guys. When I talked to you, I was at a party. It was loud and crowded, I was in a shitty mood and I was trying to get rid of your reporter. Mitch (the director of the movie) is one of my best friends since we were kids. I loved working with him and would do it again tomorrow. I don’t know why I said that stupid shit. I love Mitch, I love Megan. My bad.”
Congrats to all our talented locals that worked on this epic saga!
And whilst we wait to see the official Fright Night trailer here’s what the star of that flick said in front of a crowed screening the film to stick his foot in his gorgeous mouth over his latest Wholly New Mexico Movie:
“Meself, as a fan of the original, it doesn’t change. I don’t think I’ll have a copy of this version in my library, but I have the original at home…” – Colin Farrell
Later explaining to EW “What I meant was [I wouldn't own it] because I’m in the f-ing thing!” He said he cringes when he watches himself. “It’s always uncomfortable.”
Stir that pot boys! Keep ‘em talking, get ‘em watching! Go New Mexico Film! And now if you need a warm fuzzy, mosey on over to the eloquence of sexy Olivia Wilde’s love letter to NM here.
