Miles Teller is doing a movie with Marc Webb. The Amazing Spider-Man director has balanced a commitment to Fox Searchlight and the desire to do other indies with his work for Sony. Now he’s prepping a return to the indie scene with The Only Living Boy in New York, about a young man who gets involved with the same woman his father is having an affair with. The Whiplash star is going to rock the lead role. Read More »

Even if you don’t know the name Ilya Naishuller, you probably remember his work — the Russian musician/filmmaker made two high-energy POV videos for his band Biting Elbows, the second of which hit the internet like an action explosion. The first, dubbed ‘Office Escape,’ has been seen over five million times on YouTube alone; the follow-up has tens of millions of views. Now Naishuller is working on a feature, called Hardcore. It follows the same POV setup, and you can see the first Hardcore POV teaser below. Read More »
Nicolas Winding Refn has officially announced the female-led horror movie he’s been developing for over a year, and the film has a new title. What was once referred to as I Walk With the Dead is now The Neon Demon. The film will be at the American Film Market, which begins shortly in Los Angeles, and should shoot early in 2015. Read More »
The picture above isn’t a Halloween party shot; it’s a behind the scenes pic from James’ Franco‘s film adaptation of the novel Zeroville. And Seth Rogen isn’t really playing screenwriter and director John Milius. In fact, he’s playing a character called Viking Man… who is a very thinly-disguised representation of Milius. Zeroville features quite a few such figures. Some of the book’s characters are famous (Martin Scorsese is represented, for instance) while others are fairly obscure.
See the full Zeroville shot, complete with an appearance from Will Ferrell, below. Read More »
Rob Zombie launched a crowdfunding campaign for a new film, 31, earlier this year. (The film’s title, perhaps obviously, references Halloween, but this is not a Halloween film.)
That campaign, despite launching with an undefined financial goal, was evidently a success. Now Zombie is pushing forward with international sales planned for the American Film Market, starting next week. And then, assuming things go well the film, about a kidnapped group of people forced to compete in and hopefully survive a place called Murder World, will shoot in February of next year. Read More »
Starry Eyes answers an old question — what would you do for fame? — with brutal and visceral intensity. The film, written and directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, features Alex Essoe in a figurative and literal star-making turn. She plays Sarah, a young woman whose own self-destructive tendencies play right into the odd desires of one casting director, leading to what could be her big break as the lead actor in a horror feature. But things get really really weird as Sarah is asked to do more than she ever expected to keep her new gig. The film also stars Noah Segan, Pat Healy, Amanda Fuller, Shane Coffer, Fabianne Therese; check out a great Starry Eyes trailer below.

We’ve featured artist Joshua Budich many times in the past few years on /Film. I even own Budich’s Ferris Bueller’s Day Off poster from Gallery 1988. To celebrate the DVD/iTunes release of Wish I Was Here, filmmaker/actor Zach Braff (who seems to follow the pop culture print scene) commissioned Budich to create a limited edition poster print for the film. Joshua Budich’s Wish I Was Here poster print is now available, find out more after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Written and directed by Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement, What We Do in the Shadows is a funny mock documentary that exposes the nighttime world of New Zealand’s vampire underworld. Though in fact, the scene is more like a dysfunctional flat than an “underworld,” even though the flatmates are all, technically, monsters. As monsters go, some of them seem pretty OK. Now, just a few weeks before the film opens in the UK, we’ve got the first six minute of the comedy for your enjoyment. Watch the What We Do in the Shadows opening below.
