Palmer

I suspect that for a lot of people, Fisher Stevens is still best known as the white guy who wore brownface to portray an Indian character in the Short Circuit movies. But while he’s still acting (you may have seen him recently on Succession or The Blacklist), he’s also an Oscar-winning filmmaker who has produced and/or directed a handful of big documentaries over the past couple of decades. Now, for the first time since 2012, Stevens is once again directing a traditional narrative feature film – a drama called Palmer, which stars Justin Timberlake. AppleTV+ has just acquired the new movie, and you can read more about it below. Read More »

Greta Gerwig is on fire right now (not literally, thank heavens). The writer-actress-director’s new film Lady Bird has garnered some of the best reviews of the year, and might be a serious contender come awards season.

To land the music license rights to certain songs, Gerwig emailed several artists, and the letters are just delightful. Read the Greta Gerwig Lady Bird letters below.
