We already know Kate Winslet is adept at surviving fiery situations, but can she outlast Mother Nature under the tutelage of Bear Grylls? We’ll all find out come July when season 2 of NBC’s surprisingly entertaining survival reality series “Running Wild” kicks off.

The show, which last summer featured stars like Zac Efron, Ben Stiller, Channing Tatum and Tom Arnold, will once feature Bear Grylls dragging some big name out to a remote part of the world to rough it for a few days. In addition to Academy Award-winner Winslet, we’ll also get time with Ed Helms, James Marsden, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Hudson, Michelle Rodriguez, and New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees. Locations revealed so far include the jungles of Panama, the Italian Alps and the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.

08/30/2013  •  Posted By Luciana  •  Comments Off on Labor Day: Telluride Review

My immediate takeaway from Jason Reitman’s “Labor Day,” which kicks off the Telluride Film Festival this afternoon at the annual patrons screening, was that it was an unexpected mature step for the filmmaker who has offered up such self-aware films as “Thank You For Smoking,” “Juno,” “Up in the Air” and “Young Adult.” There isn’t a whiff of that tone here whatsoever. The edge that has defined Reitman’s work has been set aside while a more refined, lived-in aesthetic has taken hold.

Those other films had a very distinct voice, and they were all great movies. This one is told in a completely different voice, however, and I guess that’s what I mean when I say the results are unexpected; it’s unusual to see a filmmaker tap another perspective on narrative so confidently this early in a career. Reitman is still under a decade in features, after all.

The work I was most reminded of was Clint Eastwood’s from the early-90s. Indeed, “Labor Day,” which is based on the novel by Joyce Maynard, feels like it was baked in the same oven as “A Perfect World” or “The Bridges of Madison County.” It sits with its characters, measured, patient with them.

The drama centers on Kate Winslet as Adele, the mildly reclusive mother of 16-year-old Henry (Gattlin Griffith). The two are taken captive by escaped convict Frank (Josh Brolin) in their New Hampshire home over a Labor Day weekend in 1987 (making the film’s debut this particular weekend all the more apt). But Frank isn’t what he seems to be and as we learn his story, the reason for Adele’s emotional neurosis and the impact the weekend has on Henry, the film becomes a story of family and, more profoundly, the burden of responsibility a young person has to the emotional well-being of a parent.

02/14/2012  •  Posted By Roberta  •  Comments Off on “Labor Day”, starring Kate Winslet & Josh Brolin, will shoot in Massachusetts this summer

Director Jason Reitman is gearing up for his next project, Labor Day, which will star Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin.

The movie is based on Joyce Maynard’s book of the same name and is set on a late summer Labor Day holiday weekend in the 1980s. It opens with a divorced, depressed single mom (Winslet) who encounters a large, bleeding man (Brolin) while shopping with her 13-year-old. He asks for a ride and against their better judgment, they agree. Meanwhile, they learn that police are searching their town for an escaped convict. The story is mostly told through the eyes of 13-year-old Henry, who spends most of his time daydreaming or watching TV.

As we reported last month, there have been rumors that the movie would be filmed in the Boston area next summer and now, based on the casting call below, it looks like the rumors are true.

Chrystie Street Casting recently issued a casting call for the part of Henry, which Reitman has stressed is crucial to the movie because, “we’ve got to find someone very special.” He has also implied that he has not ruled out using an unknown actor for the role.

But, the casting call also confirms that the movie will be filming in Massachusetts in June. You can check out the complete listing below:

Chrystie Street Casting is casting Labor Day, a feature film. Chrystie Street Casting has cast the films Young Adult, Precious, Shakespeare In Love, Good Will Hunting, Cider House Rules, Pineapple Express, The Wrestler, and 200 other major films, as well as the TV series Pan Am. Jason Reitman (Juno, Up In The Air), dir.; Suzanne Smith Crowley & Jessica Kelly, casting. Shooting begins June 2012 in MA.

Seeking — Henry: boy, 13 years old (submit ages 10-14), Caucasian, a true innocent, has taken over the role of caretaker and protector to his fragile and reclusive mother Adele, an observant boy who understands his mother’s loneliness, but is too young to understand why he cannot entirely fill it, when a new man enters the picture the friend-less Henry is both exhilarated by the relationship and threatened by the prospect that he is no longer needed by his mother, LEAD; Eleanor: girl, 14 years old (submit ages 10-14), Caucasian, a skinny girl, a product of a broken home, newly moved from a big city to live with her father and is already bored with the small town entertainments, an intelligent girl, learned how to get what she wants with wit, calculations, and her newly developed sexual awareness, to Henry she is the mysterious hot girl who seems to know everything about the world that he doesn’t, LEAD; Barry: boy, 15 years old (submit ages 12-17), Caucasian, mentally challenged, could be Down’s Syndrome or Cerebral Palsy, the wheelchair-bound son of Evelyn (the lead character’s only friend), can only communicate through gurgles and mumbles, is perhaps more engaged in the world around him than his mother realizes, seeking actors who have either condition described above, supporting role.

According to EWonline, the release date for James Cameron’s 3D re-release of his Oscar-winning film Titanic has been changed.

Paramount Studios had originally announced that the film would open in theaters on Friday, April 4th. However the studio has now decided it will release the new version of the film on Wednesday, April 2nd.

April will mark the 100th anniversary of the tragic sinking of the ship. The award-winning film starred Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio as fictional passengers aboard the doomed luxury liner. Written, directed and produced by Cameron, Titanic is the second highest grossing movie of all time. It is one of only three films to have received a record 11 Academy Awards® including Best Picture and Best Director; and launched the careers of stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.

Called “A spectacular demonstration of what modern technology can contribute to dramatic storytelling” by Variety upon its release in 1997, the long in the works 3D conversion is being overseen by Cameron and his Lightstorm producing partner Jon Landau who produced the hit movie.
Said Cameron, “There’s a whole generation that’s never seen Titanic as it was meant to be seen, on the big screen. And this will be Titanic as you’ve never seen it before, digitally re-mastered at 4K and painstakingly converted to 3D. With the emotional power intact and the images more powerful than ever, this will be an epic experience for fans and newcomers alike.”

The actress joins Jack Black, Nicolas Cage and Kate Winslet in the musical satire about Hollywood.

Elizabeth Banks, who stars in this weekend’s Man On A Ledge with Sam Worthington, has joined the star-studded cast of Frank Or Francis, Charlie Kaufman’s musical satire about Hollywood.

Banks joins a roll call that includes Jack Black, Nicolas Cage, Steve Carell, Catherine Keener and Kevin Kline in a story that follows a battle of wills between Frank, an intellectual film director (Carell) and Francis, an online blogger (Black) who still lives at home and who delights in attacking the other man’s films.

Cage plays an actor who is famous for his high-concept films while Kline will play the director of the world’s top-grossing movie as well as that character’s brother who turns into an animatronic head.

Banks will play a highly-regarded actress making formulaic comedy bombs who is having an affair with Carell’s Frank.

Anthony Bregman of A Likely Story is producing.
