There has been so much news in the last few days that we just haven’t been able to get to all of it. Here is a round up of stories that just didn’t make the /Film front page, or what we like to call…. Page 2!

Baghead, The Duplass Brothers’ follow-up to The Puffy Chair, had big buzz at the Sundance Film Festival this year and was quickly snapped up by Sony Pictures Classics.
