Yes, there’s even more. Hard to believe, since it was just Friday — a time, one that’s not so long ago — when rumors started to swirl of Antonio Banderas and Joe Manganiello shooting Knight of Cups for Terrence Malick, but the maverick filmmaker has pulled off another feat and added someone else to his lineup.
Ryan O’Neal tweeted (he’s on Twitter, apparently) that he was on the set of Malick‘s latest; you can see a photo of that activity to your right. (Later, for good measure, there was a little dropping of Christian Bale and Natalie Portman‘s names.) With this addition — one for which the details simply do not exist, I’m afraid — Cups has expanded a cast that already includes Cate Blanchett, Wes Bentley, Freida Pinto, Isabel Lucas, Felicity Jones, and Teresa Palmer. I can only expect it’ll grow more and more, right until the final shot is beautifully composed. [ThePlaylist]
Next, Variety reports that Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Lost, The Thing) is being roped into George Tillman Jr‘s. quickly-assembled The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete. His part in the film is not clarified, unfortunately — the inconveniences we must endure! — though it’s already known that Michael Starrbury‘s script centers on “two inner-city youths left to fend for themselves over the summer after their mothers are taken away by the authorities.” Let’s say he plays a helpful store owner, for the sake of it.
Anthony Mackie, Jeffrey Wright, Jennifer Hudson, Jordin Sparks, Julito McCullum (The Wire), and Eric Ruffin all lead Inevitable Defeat, which is currently in production.
What are your thoughts on O’Neal going to Cups? Is Akinnuoye-Agbaje another good sign for Inevitable Defeat?

In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]
Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week.

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
