23 February, 2017 Author: Catagories: Life, News & Headlines

Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds’ space thriller “Life” will land down at South by Southwest. The film will world premiere as the fest’s closing night movie on March 18.

“Life,” directed by Daniel Espinosa, also stars Rebecca Ferguson, Hiroyuki Sanada, Ariyon Bakare, and Olga Dihovichnaya. The film, written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, centers on a team of scientists aboard the International Space Station whose mission of discovery turns to one of primal fear when they find a rapidly evolving life form that caused extinction on Mars, and now threatens the crew and all life on Earth.

“We are thrilled to close out the 2017 SXSW Film Festival with such a special film as ‘Life,’” said Janet Pierson, SXSW’s director of film. “Our audiences will love this taut space thriller’s twists and turns as well as its amazing cast.”

Jake Gyllenhaal is joining Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly in “The Sisters Brothers.”

Jacques Audiard is directing the indie feature, based on Patrick deWitt’s novel of the same name. Reilly, Michael De Luca, Rosa Attrab and Alison Dickey are producing. Reilly optioned the rights to the book and will produce through his shingle with De Luca, who recently came on board as producer.

Canadian-born author deWitt’s novel won the 2012 Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for humor writing.

“Sisters Brothers” is Audiard’s follow-up to his Palme d’Or winning “Dheepan”. Production is set to start sometime this summer. The noir Western will be his first film shot completely in English.

Jake To Host Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony For New Broadway Theatre
31 January, 2017 Author: Catagories: News & Headlines, Sunday In The Park With George

Broadway’s refurbished Hudson Theatre will relight February 8 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony that will include Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford, stars of the Sunday in the Park With George revival. The ceremony will take place at 11 AM at the theatre, located at 139-141 West 44th Street.

The Hudson, which originally opened in 1903, became one of Broadway’s most sought-after smaller theatres, ideal for plays. The Hudson’s bookings declined in the late 1940s, and it was used off and on as a television studio until it played its final Broadway performance on April 20, 1968. Thereafter it was used as a cinema and a disco until, faced with possible demolition, it was landmarked by the City of New York in 1987. The playhouse was purchased by a hotel developer who incorporated it into a hotel, now known as the Millennium Broadway, and used as a conference center and occasional comedy club.
