While the first two teaser trailers for Darren Lynn Bousman‘s upcoming thriller 11-11-11 focused on the scares, this new trailer highlights the story. That story is about an author (played by Timothy Gibbs) who heads to Barcelona to reunite with his family after a tragic event. Once there, he begins to fully explore how the number “11” is consistently a piece of events in his life. Seeking council within the church, he finds out that, if someone is trying to tell him something, it’s not a good thing. Oh, and look at the calendar. Guess what date tomorrow is? That’s right November 11, 2011. That’s also the planned release date for the film, though Bousman is still seeking U.S. distribution and he’ll have to go up against Tarsem’s Immortals. Check out the new trailer after the jump. Read More »
Casting Bits: Susan Sarandon in ‘Hemlock Drive;’ Julia Stiles in ‘Between Us;’ Justin Long and More in ‘Lumpy’

Rosanna Arquette is about to make her first dramatic feature, Hemlock Drive, after making a couple of documentaries. The film is “about an eccentric mother in Connecticut who learns she is dying and brings her three adult children back home for a weekend.” Part of the plot involves the matriarch getting her kids to throw a living funeral, Get Low style, although it sounds like this is meant to be a bit more funny than the climactic scene in that movie.
Now Susan Sarandon is in talks to play the main character, with Adam Brody in talks for one of her kids, and David Arquette negotiating a role as a nearby bar owner. The film, written by Jennifer Carta and Mandy Steckelberg, will shoot in Louisiana in September. [The Wrap]
After the break, Julia Stiles and three more join an indie adaptation of a play, and Justin Long is one of several new additions to an indie with an unfortunate name. Read More »

In the last two weeks, everyone was talk about the number one. We had 1-1-11 and then 1-11-11 but really, it’s all about 11-11-11. That’s when the unique repetition of the number 1 reaches its full potential and the director of Saw II-IV, Repo! The Genetic Opera and Mother’s Day is capitalizing. Darren Lynn Bousman is currently in Barcelona, Spain getting ready to shoot his upcoming horror thriller 11-11-11 and he’s just announced a cast full of relative unknowns, plus some moody concept art, intended to amp up the scares. Read who is in the film, see some of the art and refresh yourself with a plot description after the break. Read More »
