Maria Bello and Michael Sheen have a Beautiful Boy

Posted by LiveFor on December 17, 2009

Maria Bello and Michael Sheen have wrapped production on Beautiful Boy, an indie film directed by Shawn Ku. It has quite an eclectic cast as it also stars Moon Bloodgood (Terminator Salvation), Alan Tudyk (Firefly, Dollhouse), Kyle Gallner, Austin Nichols and Meat Loaf (Fight Club) according to Variety.

Bello and Sheen play a married couple on the verge of separation when they are hit with the news their 18-year-old son committed a mass shooting at his college, before taking his own life.

The film, which just wrapped in L.A., marks the feature directing debut for Ku, who created a stir in Sundance for his unconventional musical short film “Pretty Dead Girl.”

Bello was recently nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for “Downloading Nancy,” and Sheen most recently starred in “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” and “The Damned United.”

Sounds like an interesting yet harrowing tale and there are some cracking actors involved. Michael Sheen is always good as is Maria Bello (who seems to alternate between total sauciness as seen in A History of Violence to kid friendly The Mummy 3). Good to see Moon Bloodgood – pictured on the right – branching out from sci-fi such as Journeyman,Daybreak and Terminator Salvation).

The Informers – New trailer

Posted by LiveFor on February 27, 2009

In such works as Less Than Zero and American Psycho, Brett Easton Ellis brilliantly dissects contemporary American society, a culture in which too much is never enough. Now, adapting his own acclaimed novel for the screen, he returns to the Los Angeles of the early 1980’s with a multi-strand narrative that deftly balances a vast array of characters who represent both the top of the heap (a Hollywood dream merchant, a dissolute rock star, an aging newscaster) and the bottom (a voyeuristic doorman, an amoral ex-con).

Connecting all his intertwining strands are the quintessential Ellis protagonists—a group of beautiful, blonde young men and women who sleep all day and party all night, doing drugs—and one another—with abandon, never realizing that they are dancing on the edge of a volcano.

Filmed with uncommon glamour and grit by acclaimed Australian director Gregor Jordan, The Informers is an alternately blistering and chilling portrait of hedonism run amuck.

Director: Gregor Jordan
Cast: Billy Bob Thornton, Kim Basinger, Winona Ryder, Mickey Rourke, Austin Nichols, Amber Heard, Brad Renfro.
