Cottage Country is a dark comedy starring Malin Akerman, Tyler Labine, Daniel Petronijevic and Lucy Punch and directed by Peter Wellington. Victor Elizalde of indie Viva Pictures and Uncork’d Entertainment’s Keith Leopard said today they have acquired U.S. theatrical, VOD, home vid and digital rights while in Cannes. The story centers on Todd (Labine), who wants everything to be just perfect at the family cottage where he plans to propose to Cammie (Akerman). But things go awry with the arrival of Todd’s slacker brother Salinger (Petronijevic) and his free-spirited girlfriend Masha (Punch). When Todd accidentally dispatches his irksome sibling with an axe, Cammie is determined not to let murder stand in the way of their happiness. The pickup is the latest from the companies, which also acquired action film Get Lucky starring Luke Treadaway, Emily Atack and Craig Fairbrass; the comedy The Blackout from director Matt Hish and writer Keith Brown; thriller The Bates Haunting from director Byron Turk, starring Jean Louise O’Sullivan, Ryan Dunn and Zachary Fletcher; and romantic comedy Mariachi Gringo starring Shawn Ashmore, Martha Higareda and Kate Burton.
It’s been two years since a fighting game topped the videogame sales charts, but Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment landed a one-two punch with “Injustice: Gods Among Us” last month and a reboot of “Mortal Kombat” in 2011. “Injustice,” from NetherRealm Studios (also behind “Mortal Kombat”) pits DC Comics superheroes against its more notorious supervillains.

TORONTO, CANADA (May 16, 2013) – Mongrel Media announced today that the company has acquired all Canadian rights to INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS. Written and directed by Oscar winners Joel and Ethan Coen, and produced by Scott Rudin, and Joel and Ethan Coen, the film stars Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund, F. Murray Abraham and Justin Timberlake. INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) is at a crossroads. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles—some of them of his own making. Living at the mercy of both friends and strangers, scaring up what work he can find, Llewyn’s misadventures take him from the basket houses of the Village to an empty Chicago club—on an odyssey to audition for music mogul Bud Grossman—and back again. Brimming with music performed by Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan (as Llewyn’s married Village friends), as well as Marcus Mumford and Punch Brothers, INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS —in the tradition of O Brother, Where Art Thou?—is infused with the transportive sound of another time and place. An epic on an intimate scale, it represents the Coen Brothers’ fourth collaboration with Oscar and Grammy Award-winning music producer T Bone Burnett. Previous collaborations between the Coen Brothers and Rudin include the Oscar-winning Best Picture of 2007 No Country for Old Men and the multiple Oscar-nominated True Grit. INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS makes its world premiere on Sunday, May 19, ... Read More »
Damn it. Just when we thought we were going to be able to ignore Zach Braff's controversially crowd-sourced sophomore feature, he goes and casts Anna Kendrick. According to The Wrap, the "Pitch Perfect" star, so often the best thing in whatever she's in, has joined the cast of Braff's currently-prepping "Wish I Was Here." The actress will play the love interest of Braff's character's brother (Josh Gad), a young cosplayer named Janine. Manic Pixie Dream Girl alert! Mandy Patinkin is also in the cast (Mandy Patinkin Dream Girl alert!), and Kendrick will next be seen in the questionable-looking "Rapturepalooza," which opens on June 7th. Someone else we're a big fan of is British director Eran Creevy, who made an ace debut a few years back with "Shifty," and followed it up earlier this year with homegrown actioner "Welcome To The Punch." We've been tipping the filmmaker, who was one of our Directors On The Rise this year, for a Hollywood breakout for a while and it seems to have arrived...
