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.
ABC held their upfront today, and they announced a crazy thirteen new shows. With five new comedies, seven new dramas, and a reality show, their primetime schedule is completely different. Let's dive into the new shows! OK! News: Watch the 5 funniest things Rebel Wilson has ever said! Super Fun Night is a comedy starring Rebel Wilson about a group of girls who have a standing appointment to hang out every Friday night. I would like to be invited to that party, please. Back in the Game is a family comedy, about a father, daughter, and grandson all united by the game of baseball. The grandfather winds up coaching his grandson, Bad News Bears-style. Just call it That 80s Show: The Goldbergs is about a crazy, loving family set in the '80s. Most importantly? It stars hilarious Bridesmaids actress Wendi McLendon-Covey! Trophy Wife is another comedy with a recognizable star—Malin Akerman plays a young party chick who marries a man and inherits his three children and two ex-wives in the process. Mixology is a comedy coming midseason, about an ensemble of hot young people (played by mostly unknown actors) interacting in a bar in Manhattan. On to dramas! Betrayal is about an affair with complications of politics, lawyers, and murder. I'm confused already! Killer Women is about the only female in thr Texas Rangers, and how her fellow cops support her (and try to destroy her!). Oh, and of course there's an affair on this show, too. Lucky 7 is about a group of seven gas-station employees who enter a lottery pool together...and I'm gonna go ahead and guess they win, right?! Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is Marvel's first TV series and will be produed by sci-fi genius (and Avengers writer) Joss Whedon. Need we say more? No. Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is what it sounds like—a sort of spinoff of Once Upon a Time, only with Alice! Mind Games, coming midseason, stars Christian Slater and Steve Zahn as brothers who perform a service: solving people's problems by psychological manipulation. Genius! Resurrection is a show about a small town in which people's loved ones start coming back from the dead. What a concept! I am intrigued. Are you intrigued by any of ABC's new shows? Which one can you not wait to see? Which one sounds the craziest? Tell us in the comments below or tweet us @OKMagazine. Photo credit: ABC
"CBGB," an upcoming cinematic chronicle of the famed New York music venue, features a veritable who's-who of stars playing the great and good (and bad!) of the punk rock scene which centred on the venue in the 1980s. Justin Bartha plays Stiv Bators (of Dead Boys), Malin Akerman plays Blondie lead singer Debbie Harry, Mickey Sumner plays Patti Smith, Rupert Grint plays the Dead Boys guitarist Cheetah Chrome, Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins is Iggy Pop with Alan Rickman as the legendary Hilly Kristal, the founder of CBGB. The film, directed by Randall Miller ("Bottle Shock"), will be out later this year and a collection of ten neon-colored posters (via Hollywood Reporter), as well as a handful of stills from the movies, give some strong hints as to what kind of movie we're in for.
