For fans of the TV drama Cold Case, here’s some news to keep you entertained; Variety reports that Kathryn Morris, who plays Lilly Rush on the show, is set to lead the indie rom-com Confections of a Discarded Woman, with Motion Picture Corp. of America producing.
Michael Damian will be helming the project, from a script he co-wrote with Janeen Damian. Morris will be playing “a pampered Manhattan housewife who has it all until her husband unexpectedly dumps her for his acupuncturist. Faced with an airtight pre-nup” she is forced to take “a job making cupcakes at her father’s bakery in Hackensack, where she discovers that true love can be even sweeter on the other side of the Hudson.”
Now it may not be my type of movie, but this could be a good way for Morris to make a stamp on the big screen. She had a part in Minority Report, A.I., as well as Moneyball, but her scenes were actually cut from the final film. Production for Confections will start next week in Bucharest, Romania.
Moving along to some other indie projects – Variety also reports that Game of Thrones actor Richard Madden will be taking on a different role besides Robb Stark; as he has been cast in the lead of the indie comedy Long Night’s Short Mornings. The film “follows a young man on an erotic odyssey through the streets of New York as he sleeps with seven women in seven nights.”
Relatively new director Chad Harboldd, who’s feature debut Revenge for Jolly! premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival to poor reviews, will be making is sophomore effort. Much like Morris, this could also be a good way for Madden to get some big screen time. His recent credits, aside from Thrones, include other TV shows such as, Birdsong, Sirens and Hope Springs – all of which exited screens quickly.
Do either of these projects grab your attention?

The actioner stars Keanu Reeves as an ex-hitman who is crossed by the son of his old employer. When everything is taken from him, he decides to […]

Composer Nathan Johnson is a master at making off-beat and imperfect instruments sound distant yet accessible on a number of vastly different narratives (see: Brick, The Brothers Bloom, Looper). His latest work is a pair of scores for films that were both released this month, Jake Paltrow‘s neo-western Young Ones and the journalistic thriller Kill the Messenger starring Jeremy Renner. Johnson has also been producing a couple albums and […]
