The Trotsky – Trailer for Jay Baruchel’s indie comedy

Posted by LiveFor on March 6, 2010

Been a while coming (first reported on this film back in August) but there is now an offical trailer for The Trotsky.

Leon Bronstein (Jay Baruchel) is not your average Montreal West high school student. For one thing, none of his peers can claim to be the reincarnation of early 20th century Soviet iconoclast and Red Army hero, Leon Trotsky. When his father (Saul Rubinek) sends Leon to public school as punishment for starting a hunger strike at Papa’s clothing factory, Leon quickly lends new meaning to the term “student union,” determined as he is to live out his pre-ordained destiny to the fullest and change the world.

The Electric Church can give you eternal life….for a price

Posted by LiveFor on January 21, 2010

Sony Pictures has picked up the movie rights to a series of sci-fi novels by Jeff Somers, tapping Trevor Sands to adapt the first book, titled “The Electric Church.”

Jimmy Miller is producing the adaptation, which is working under the moniker of the “The Avery Cates Project,” named after the book’s main character.

Somers has so far written three books, all set in a near future where Earth is run by a federation of nations and governed by a council. Cates is a bodyguard-assassin who, in “Church,” is forced by the governing police force to kill the founder of a church that converts people by transplanting their brains into pliant robotic bodies.

Sands got the job after impressing the studio and producer with “Redemption Falls,” a Western spec that went out last year.

The scribe recently adapted the science fiction book series “Hyperion” for Warner Bros. and GK Films, to which director Scott Derrickson is attached.

The project marks a change of pace from the usual fare for which Miller is known. The producer made a name for himself in comedies and has Jay Baruchel’s “She’s Out of My League” coming out in March. He also is developing the comedy “Bad Teacher” for Sony, with Cameron Diaz attached.

Mad Max 4 – Teresa Palmer could me the lady in if. At least Jay Baruchel thinks so

Posted by LiveFor on January 17, 2010

Teresa Palmer is to play a leading role in George Miller’s hugely anticipated fourth Mad Max film Fury Road after her co-star in The Sorcerer’s Apprentice let details slip

Actor Jay Baruchel told reporters interviewing him for the new Dreamworks film How To Train Your Dragon that Palmer, who splits her time between Australia and Hollywood, was preparing for a gruelling shoot on the new Mad Max episode.

“She gets to work with him, and she’s (going to be) doing Mad Max 4 with Miller,” Baruchel said.

The actor, who counts Palmer as a very good friend after working with her on the Sorcerer film, said he didn’t know the character’s exact name, but believed it was the female lead.

“She’s the main chick in Fury Road,” he said.

“She’s going to be there for over a year. It’s really, really cool.”

It is not known if Palmer will replace or star with Charlize Theron, who signed on to the project last October. British actor Tom Hardy will play Max.

Miller previously cast Palmer (Bedtime Stories) and Baruchel (Tropic Thunder) as villains in his aborted 2008 superhero film Justice League of America.

The mammoth Mad Max production is scheduled to shoot for 30 weeks this year in and around Broken Hill.

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice – Trailer for Nic Cage Disney film

Posted by LiveFor on December 9, 2009

Not sure if this is better or worse than I thought it was going to look.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Jon Turteltaub, the creators of the National Treasure franchise, present THE SORCERERS APPRENTICE — an innovative and epic comedy adventure about a sorcerer and his hapless apprentice who are swept into the center of an ancient conflict between good and evil. Balthazar Blake (NICOLAS CAGE) is a master sorcerer in modern-day Manhattan trying to defend the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath (ALFRED MOLINA). Balthazar cant do it alone, so he recruits Dave Stutler (JAY BARUCHEL), a seemingly average guy who demonstrates hidden potential, as his reluctant protégé. The sorcerer gives his unwilling accomplice a crash course in the art and science of magic, and together, these unlikely partners work to stop the forces of darkness. Itll take all the courage Dave can muster to survive his training, save the city and get the girl as he becomes THE SORCERERS APPRENTICE.


What did you think of that?

The Trotsky premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival

Posted by LiveFor on September 4, 2009

trotsky_01I am really looking forward to this one. Great central idea for a film and Jay Baruchel is pretty cool. Really wish I was at TIFF as there are loads of films I want to watch.

The All Canadian (English) Central Executive Committee of Pictures That Move announced that Jacob Tierney’s The Trotsky, will have its world premiere as a Special Presentation at this year’s gathering of Activities for the Support of Proletarian Internationalism (this obviously does not include galas) or as they like to call it, the Toronto International Film Festival.

A Park Ex Pictures production, produced by the extremely bourgeois Kevin Tierney, The Trotsky is a contemporary comedy set in Montreal starring Jay Baruchel (Tropic Thunder, Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist, Knocked Up) as Leon, a 17-year-old high school student who believes himself to be the reincarnation of Russian revolutionary, Leon Trotsky.

The Trotsky screenings of the people for the people (otherwise known as Festival Screenings) are:

Public 1 Friday Sept 11 – 9:00 pm RYERSON (43 Gerrard Street East)
Public 2 Sunday Sept 13 – 12:45 pm SCOTIABANK (259 Richmond St West)
PRESS & INDUSTRY Sat Sept 12 – 2:00 pm Cumberland 1

The Trotsky also features an impressive array of Canadian actors, among them, Geneviève Bujold (Dead Ringers), Anne-Marie Cadieux (Maman Last Call), Colm Feore (Bon Cop Bad Cop), Emily Hampshire (Snow Cake), Michael Murphy (Away From Her) and Saul Rubinek (Wall Street).

Leon Bronstein is not your average Montreal West high school student. For one thing, none of his peers can claim to be the reincarnation of early 20th century Soviet iconoclast and Red Army hero, Leon Trotsky. When his father sends Leon to public school as punishment for starting a hunger strike at Dad’s clothing factory, Leon quickly lends new meaning to the term “student union”, determined as he is to live out his pre-ordained destiny to the fullest.

But will our young hero ever inspire his fellow students to care about anything? Will he ever convince the beautiful, and significantly older, Alexandra that she won’t be charged with statutory rape if they become engaged? And will he ever find his Lenin?

The Trotsky is Jacob Tierney’s follow-up to his feature directorial debut Twist, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival Critics’ Week section, before going to Toronto, Rotterdam and some 20 other festivals around the world. An actor turned writer-director, Jacob was most recently seen in the feature film Walk All Over Me and on TV as the title horseman in the CBC mini-series St. Urbain’s Horseman.

Infamous exploiter of workers, technicians and actors in both official languages, producer Kevin Tierney last made Canadian audiences laugh out loud with Bon Cop Bad Cop, the first ever bilingual film made in Canada, and the highest grossing Canadian movie in domestic box office history. Bon Cop Bad Cop won the Genie Award for Best Film of 2006. Other credits include the acclaimed TV movies Choice: The Henry Morgentaler Story and One Dead Indian, as well as Serveuses Demandees directed by Gylaine Dionne and the soon to be released Love and Savagery, directed by John N. Smith.

Thanks to Cynthia for sending me the news.
