“The Return of Tanya Tucker, starring Brandi Carlile,” a documentary premiering Sunday at the South by Southwest film festival, has had its worldwide rights acquired by Sony Pictures Classics, the company announced Wednesday.

“I am thrilled that this special documentary has found such a perfect home with Sony Pictures Classics,” Carlile, who serves as both executive producer and subject of the film, said in a statement. “I don’t think there is a more fascinating human being on the planet than Tanya Tucker. I can’t wait for the world to fall in love with this legend all over again.

Sony Classics said the film represents “the birth of a major filmmaker in Kathlyn Horan”, the doc’s director and producer. Horan had previously worked with Carlile on shorter projects, including the 2018 short documentary “Brandi Carlile at the Washington Correctional Center for Women” and a music video from the same year, “Hold Out Your Hand.” Before that, she made a feature documentary about one of Carlile’s favorite artists, the Indigo Girls, in 2015.

Horan’s non-musical documentary credits include “The IF Project”, which focuses on how a Seattle police officer developed a writing project for inmates at a maximum-security women’s prison.

The Tucker / Carlile documentary largely focuses on the week-long production of Tucker’s comeback album, “While I’m Livin'”, in Los Angeles in early 2019. Carlile and Scooter Jennings served as producers of the album, with Carlile and band members Phil and Tim Hanseroth writing most of the material based on their understanding of Tucker’s life. The back half of the film depicts Tucker’s return to the road and his ultimate twin wins at the 2020 Grammys. Without intending to encompass Tucker’s entire life story, the film also includes a slew of archival footage. which Tucker and others provided for flashbacks.

The movie wasn’t one that benefited from anything resembling pre-production. horan said Variety in a recent interview that she was contacted by Catherine Carlile, Brandi’s wife, the day before the start of the sessions for the album. The filmmaker was able to hastily assemble a small crew in time to capture Brandi and her veteran heroine’s first in-person encounter the following day.

Horan’s TinFish Films is producing with Julie Goldman of Motto Pictures, Christopher Clements and Carolyn Hepburn, the team behind another recent music documentary, Todd Haynes’ “The Velvet Underground”, in association with Impact Partners and Artemis Rising.

Sony Classics said the deal was brokered with Submarine.

Horan said, “I am honored to be part of the Sony Pictures Classics family. I have always admired the caliber of their films. … One of the most exciting aspects of this project is the coming together of these two different worlds of country and American music. Tanya and Brandi are both agents of change in different ways, and the strength they represent and the joy they bring is something we are thrilled to be able to capture with this film.

Variety wrote in her review of the film, “It’s the season for people who enjoy flying recording studio movies, obviously, and ‘Tanya Tucker Returns’ is almost a bit like the anti-‘Get Back “in that he documents sessions where everything that could go well goes well. But the doc doesn’t get boring just because things get so nice. Carlile happens to be a really good Tucker interviewer, and it’s clear that the “radical empathy” she advocates in her own music and career is something she practices in real life…. The sidekick presses her hero for more details so Tucker can get in in touch with her emotions from life in the vocal booth. Or, maybe she’s just seriously fan-girling…but it works both ways.

The picture bowed at SXSW as part of the festival’s 24 Beats Per Second music series.

Halo TV series: The lead actor defends his decision to show the character’s face https://carolchanning.org/halo-tv-series-the-lead-actor-defends-his-decision-to-show-the-characters-face/ Wed, 16 Mar 2022 13:04:21 +0000 https://carolchanning.org/halo-tv-series-the-lead-actor-defends-his-decision-to-show-the-characters-face/ Halo TV star Pablo Schreiber has explained why the decision was made for Master Chief to remove his helmet in the upcoming live-action series.

Halo TV star Pablo Schreiber has explained why the decision was made for Master Chief to remove his helmet in the upcoming live-action series.

Kiki Wolfkill, head of studio at 343 and executive producer of Halo, previously confirmed to IGN that the Paramount+ series will reveal Master Chief’s full face for the first time in franchise history, prompting several fans to voice their concerns. on some of the creative decisions made behind the scenes of the TV adaptation.

Schreiber, who plays Master Chief on the show, has now spoken about the seemingly controversial decision to unmask John-117. Speaking to TechRadar, the actor said he “respects the opinions” of those who disagree with the decision, although he wants to assure fans that he thinks the face reveal is suitable for television support.

“One thing I learned early on is that there are as many different opinions in the Halo universe as there are Halo fans,” Schreiber said. “So obviously you won’t be able to please everyone. But what I would say is that we tailor an entertainment experience to fit the medium it’s intended for.”

It was previously said that the Halo TV show would not take place in the video game timeline and instead use a new “Silver Timeline”. The new timeline roots the series “into canon” and features everything you’d expect from the story of Master Chief’s fight against the Covenant, but it just comes from a “different perspective”.

Halo: The Series Gallery

“When you’re playing a first-person shooter, the way a character is developed is very different from what’s needed when you’re doing long-form television,” Schreiber added. “To go on this journey with your protagonist, you won’t be able to take an audience on a long story without having access to a character’s face, which tells you how they feel, what they think about This access to life emotion of a character, over time, is what makes you empathize and connect with a character.

“I’m sorry, but this is the only choice for long-form storytelling on TV. What I would say to anyone who disagrees with this, I totally respect that opinion. But it’s a pretty basic starting point when you’re talking about making a quality TV show.”

Cortana’s redesign has been another point of controversy around the series, although this choice has also been defended. The series creators explained that the decision was partly driven by technology, as the team likes to use the latest tools to make thoughtful design choices, just as they have throughout the series of games. that spans decades.

The TV series depicts an epic 26th century conflict between humanity and an extraterrestrial menace known as the Covenant, weaving deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure and a richly imagined take on life. ‘to come up. Paramount is clearly happy with that vision, as the show has been renewed for a second season ahead of its March 24 Paramount+ premiere.

With his long hair and big smile, Alex Barone has the movie star look you might imagine in a blockbuster movie.

But look a little closer and you’ll notice something a little different about this Los Angeles-based actor.

Most notably, he has only six fingers, three on each hand, which he jokingly compares to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

For more Human Interest news and videos, check out 7Human Interest >>

Over the past decade, Alex has pursued his love of acting, and while it hasn’t been easy, he says it’s finally getting easier for actors with disabilities to get roles.

born different

Born and raised in the American city of Baltimore, it was immediately clear that Alex was a little different.

“I was born with a condition called fibular hemimelia, so I was born with three fingers on both hands like a ninja turtle, and I was also born without the fibula bone in my right leg,” he explains. .

The condition causes the affected leg to become shortened, often resulting in amputation to prepare for a prosthesis. “

“Instead of amputation when I was a kid, which they wanted to do, I ended up doing something called limb lengthening, where they stretched my right leg and made it equal in length to my left,” says Alex.

“I had a total of 43 surgeries between the ages of 6 and 18.

“My parents never allowed me to believe that I was disabled in any way. So they really kept pushing me and telling me that I could do whatever I wanted,” adds Alex.

Acceptance and action

Alex admits for years he tried to hide his hands by keeping them in his pockets.

But after years of surgeries, he decided to challenge himself when he returned to high school.

“I had just completed my 30th or so surgery…I came back to school and needed to sign up for an elective course,” he recalls.

“I signed up for theater to put myself forward and face my fears and get on stage and that kind of stuff.

“I’ve found acting to be a great way for me to escape my insecurities and step into someone else’s shoes, which I think has ultimately helped build my confidence and my love for it.”

Years Later Would Be a Hollywood Eli Roth, the Writer and Director Behind Horror Hits cabin fever and Hostelthat would give him his big break.

“I walked up to him, tapped him on the shoulder and said, ‘Hey Mr. Roth, I’m Alex Barone, I’ve got these awesome hands’ which I pushed in his face.

“And I was like, ‘Knowing that you do horror, feel free to use me for anything, I’m a huge fan’, he thought that was awesome, and then this took off from there,'” he says.

Diverse cast

Alex says that while it can be difficult to get acting roles when you have a physical difference, the tide is starting to turn.

“I think things, even over the past seven years, are changing for the better for people with disabilities, actors with disabilities.

“When I first started acting it seemed like I only go out for handicap roles, which are one in a thousand.

“Now the casting directors, directors and producers bring in actors for all the roles and they change the role to fit the structure of the actor.

“So whether they’re disabled or not, they’re able to change the writing and work with that person and make it unique based on the game, not their physique or their difference, which is really cool. ”

“I noticed a really positive change with people recruiting me for all the roles, not just the disability (roles),” he says.

One of his biggest roles to date was a bit in the Hulu/Disney+ miniseries Drug alongside Michael Keaton.

It was a small but important role for Alex.

Drug was amazing – it’s such a good story, (but) a sad story about the opioid pandemic and how it started and its rise in the United States.

“During the audition, they asked why I was connecting to this content, and I told them how my biological father died of opioids and I really connected to that.

“That’s how it went, just being vulnerable and sharing my story.”

“And this role in particular, they were looking for someone with a limb difference, specifically missing fingers, so that was perfect for me.

“It was wonderful working with Michael Keaton and (creator) Danny Strong, and (executive producer) Barry Levinson, and the cast and crew were all amazing – it’s a great show.”

It’s not just Alex who is successful on the small screen.

His friend and fellow disabled actor Zyra Gorecki recently landed a lead role in the NBC drama La Breawhich filmed mainly in Melbourne.

After losing her leg in a car accident at the age of 13, Zyra became the first amputee actress to land a central role in a television series.

“I think it’s huge for Zara to get a steady lead in this series, and what I felt was great about La Brea When they met her, they thought she was an awesome actress, and then they put her on the show and adapted the story around her leg.

“What was unique about this La Brea and NBC did was he CGId (computer generated) his leg amputated into a real leg, which I thought was really cool.

“Usually it’s the other way around, where they’ll take a valid actor and CGI a member difference. instead of taking a member difference in the CGI to look “normal”.

“I thought it was awesome – it was huge and hopefully we’ll see a lot more of it on TV.”

Not a witch

Alex is also a disability advocate, who came to prominence after the release of The witches in 2020.

In the film, Anne Hathaway plays the Great Witch, who in her true witch form has only three fingers on each hand.

The performance provoked outrage from the members’ difference community, which saw it as further alienation for people with physical disabilities.

“The whole thing in a nutshell is that they made an able-bodied person look disabled, and they kind of made it a scary thing, a scary trait, or a quality about that person. …that someone with a limb difference would be portrayed as a witch or something evil or disgusting.

“People with limb differences don’t want it to be portrayed as a disgusting thing, especially in a movie like this, which is supposed to be a kid’s movie.

“How are kids supposed to react to a movie like this? Having nothing to admire that isn’t bad makes it look cool or awesome, or having three fingers on both hands is a superhero type quality, not a witch type quality.

Actress Anne Hathaway and the studio behind the Warner Bros. Pictures later apologized for the performance.

Accept your difference

Despite many years of trying to hide their differences, Alex’s advice to anyone with a difference is to embrace it.

“I was very unsure about it for a while, I didn’t want to talk about it, I kept my hands in my pockets, etc.

“Over time it became like an icebreaker – something unique, something cool about me.

“My hands made me, so everyone knew me as Alex, the ninja turtle guy, eventually it became a matter of trust.”

What about people staring at him and asking questions when he’s out in public?

“The way I see it is if people are watching, it’s almost like you’re going anywhere and you’re near someone with super shiny, spiky, mohawk, pink hair, you’re going to look at that person because they’re different.

“I find it’s the same if people look at my hands and wonder, because that’s not a common thing, especially when I was growing up, so of course they’ll look at me.

“It’s another thing if they’re whispering or pointing or laughing and making fun of me or someone with a disability.

“But watching, I don’t mind. I love educating people – I think that’s huge.

“It also empowers you and builds your confidence to talk to them and just give them a quick rundown of your story and then move on.”

The last word

“I would say put yourself front and center. Face your fear, whatever it is, and do it.

“Whether you want to be an actor or a dancer, singer, creative and you have a disability, don’t do what I did growing up and hide behind your inner wall and be so afraid to face it.

“Just confront that you are different, accept it, acknowledge it, and use it to your advantage.”

“Showing yourself off – that’s what makes you unique and special and different from everyone else.

“You don’t want to blend in, do you?” You want to stand out!

Drug is streaming now Disney+. You can also view Alex’s webseries on ICT Tac.

RICH HELDENFELS Tribune News Service

Q: It’s been 10 years since we heard that Leonardo DiCaprio will star in the movie version of “The Devil in White Town.” It’s been a long time coming. Is this film going to be made? I hope!

A: Still in the works is a screen adaptation of Erik Larson’s non-fiction tale of the murder and the 1893 World’s Fair, but not quite as originally envisioned. As Deadline reported, DiCaprio acquired the rights to the book in 2010, with an eye on a feature film directed by Martin Scorsese, a frequent DiCaprio collaborator. But in 2019, the project transitioned into a planned miniseries for Hulu, with DiCaprio serving as an executive producer along with Scorsese. There have been reports of a possible casting from time to time since then. Most recently, earlier in January, Keanu Reeves was reportedly in negotiations for the series; it was not said who he would play.

Q: We’ve always watched “The Big Bang Theory” and now we love watching “Young Sheldon”. We remember an episode of “Big Bang” featuring Sheldon’s twin sister, but we don’t remember any episodes involving a brother. Did we miss something?

People also read…

A: Yes. Jerry O’Connell played Georgie Cooper in several episodes of “The Big Bang Theory” starting with the 11th season in 2018. He was the successful owner of a chain of tire stores; “Young Sheldon”, where Montana Jordan plays young Georgie, showed the character’s business acumen.

Q: Perhaps you could help me find a very old movie. Between 1948 and 1950, I saw a movie called “Mickey” which lifted my spirits. All these years I’ve been asking people to see this movie, but no one has ever heard of it. It starred Lois Butler and, I think, Skippy Homeier and Anne Revere. I barely remember the plot or the storyline, but somehow it’s still a very positive memory. Is it possible to find a room to see this film?

A: “Mickey,” from 1948, starred Lois Butler as young Mickey Kelly. The headlining cast includes Bill Goodwin, Irene Hervey and John Sutton; Skippy Homeier is also in it, but not Anne Revere. You can find it on Amazon Prime Video; there are also recordings on YouTube; image quality isn’t great on any of them.

Q: Sometime in January, at the end of Days of Our Lives, there was a note saying it was in memory of someone (I think a woman). It passed so quickly that I didn’t understand the name. I was wondering if anyone from the cast had died.

A: I believe you saw a dedication to Elizabeth “Betsy” Snyder, who wrote about “Days” for a decade. The Emmy winner died after a brief illness last November. She had also written for other daytime dramas, including “Another World,” “General Hospital,” and “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

Q: I was a huge fan of the show “Fringe” and wonder if there was ever talk about the possibility of a movie version? I would also like to know why it does not appear on any of the streaming services like Amazon or Netflix?

A: To answer your last question first, you can find “Fringe” on IMDb TV and HBO Max. While fans often yearn for a favorite show to return as a movie or another series, I couldn’t find any discussion of “Fringe” that makes that likely.

It might be odd to think that some of the country’s biggest stars might have been known to our neighbors before they became household names.

Cambridgeshire has seen its fair share of celebrities born and raised in the county, from Aston Merrygold of JLS to Olympic medalist Louis Smith.

However, it appears that most A-listers who could once settle in Cambridgeshire have carved out careers in film and TV.

These people are nothing short of local legends; before they rose to fame, they grew up in our towns, went to local schools, or were perhaps members of local amateur theater groups.

Whether they’ve appeared in Marvel, Harry Potter, or Star Wars films, starred in a Netflix series, or been featured in many of our favorite TV shows, this list of 13 Cambridgeshire-born actors covers just about every area of ​​television and film.

In two new films, the Big Apple endures a multiverse and a musical | Movie https://carolchanning.org/in-two-new-films-the-big-apple-endures-a-multiverse-and-a-musical-movie/ Tue, 28 Dec 2021 02:30:00 +0000 https://carolchanning.org/in-two-new-films-the-big-apple-endures-a-multiverse-and-a-musical-movie/ As the kids say, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” (Sony-Columbia-Marvel-Pascal Pictures, 2021, 148 min.)

As the kids say, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” (Sony-Columbia-Marvel-Pascal Pictures, 2021, 148 min.) Is off the chain. When I wasn’t laughing, I had a big goofy smile on my face most of the time.

If you’ve been on board through Sam Raimi and Marc Webb’s web-slinger movies, you won’t believe what you’re looking for, so I’ll be as brief and spoiler-free as possible. You wouldn’t thank me for divulging these secrets. Picking up the ending of “Spider-Man: Far From Home” (2019), the whole world now knows that Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is the old Web-Head, so he asks Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to cast a spell. so that the world will forget about it. But something is wrong, and many of Spidey’s past enemies tumble into New York City from the Endless Multiverse.

Do you have it all?

Thanks to a great screenplay from “Community” veterans Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers and series director Jon Watts, the first half is jaw-dropping comedy and action, and the second half really raises the stakes for life or life. death from these kinds of stories. I really appreciated that MJ (Zendaya) and Ned (Jacob Batalon) were part of the dilemma and not relegated to the sidelines of the story. And since he’s my favorite Spidey villain, I was delighted to see Alfred Molina return as Doctor Otto Octavius ​​in Raimi’s “Spider-Man 2” (2004), the best film in this trilogy.

At the end, I turned to Constant Companion and said, “I don’t have any notes.” For millions of wall-crawler fans, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” is the perfect comic book entertainment.

***

My own preconceptions got the better of me this week. I assumed that Steven Spielberg’s “West Side Story” (20e Century Studios-Amblin-TSG Entertainment, 2021, 156 min.) Would modernize and update the classic musical. But after one of Spielberg’s typically gorgeous opening shots passing over twisted metal and rising higher and higher to reveal a huge construction site, when I finally saw the police cars at the old and street decor, I realized that Spielberg’s version was a perfect recreation of New York City in the mid-20th century.

Spielberg’s very first musical is not a carbon copy of Robert Wise’s 1961 Best Picture, a Broadway legend and bebop jazz interpretation of Romeo and Juliet. He and screenwriter Tony Kushner (“Angels in America”) brought in executive producer Rita Moreno, strengthened her role as the children’s only mother figure, addressed transgender issues that would never have happened at Wise’s creative team, and best of all, they didn’t translate Sharks gang Spanish to English for cheap seats. Believe me, you know what the characters are saying.

Time and space make it impossible to list the names of a new group of talented children. In other words, they do justice to the enduring legacy of the series. I like to think of a whole new generation of kids playing Tony and Maria and Anita and Bernardo in their high school musical and falling in love with the theater. It is a gift that keeps on giving.

“Spider-Man” and “West Side Story” are both showing at the mall’s Regal Cinemas. Visit https://www.regmovies.com/theatres/regal-ithaca-mall/0677#/buy-tickets-by-cinema?in-cinema=0677&at=2021-12-21&view-mode=list for show times.
