Incoming: Dallaire, “Hooligans,” sequel hell.

Posted by on

Timothy Treadwell and grizzliesTrailers: One for Werner Herzog‘s unbelievable-looking doc "Grizzly Man" is here; one for Berlin’s kick-off film "Asylum" (from "Young Adam" director David MacKenzie) here; for Michael Winterbottom‘s unsimulated sex/unsimulated rock and roll junket "9 Songs" here; and one for the starring-Steve Martin adaptation of the Steve Martin novel, "Shopgirl," here (looks rather "Garden State" meets "Lost in Translation" lite).

Via the Toronto Star, Téléfilm Canada has approved funding for a feature film based on retired Lt.-Gen. Roméo Dallaire‘s book, "Shake Hands With the Devil," which has already been made into a doc of the same name. The new film will be co-written and directed by Yves Simoneau.

Brian Brooks at indieWIRE reports that Elijah Wood-runs-wild vehicle "Hooligans" has finally acquired a distributor, the newly formed Odd Lot Releasing. The film, which we thought would have been snapped up a lot faster after it premiered at SXSW this past March, has been re-titled "Green Street Hooligans," and will open in limited release September 9.

Jim Sheridan, of "My Left Foot" and "In America," who’s currently filming "Get Rich or Die Tryin’," 50 Cent‘s acting debut (and the weirdness of that pairing never gets old, or less promising), is planning to make "Emerald City," a maybe period piece about New York City’s Irish immigrant "mafia." No word on whether or not this will get made before his planned remake of "Ikiru." Via the Guardian.

Djimon Hounsou tells the BBC that there’s rumblings of a "Gladiator" sequel. And via Empire, sequels to "Road House," "Hollow Man" and "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer" are all in the works over at Sony Pictures. We’ll go ahead and say it, since nobody else seems willing to: we’re sort of excited about the "Road House" sequel. Because you can’t tell us that when it’s on TV some lazy Saturday, you don’t watch that shit in its entirety.

Anyway, via Dark Horizons, there are also plans for remakes of "Sunset Boulevard" (possibly with Ewan McGregor (who seems a good fit) and Glenn Close (who doesn’t — we could see…maybe Faye Dunaway?)) and French horror film "Maléfique," about four prisoners who escape from jail using blaaaaack maaaaagiiiiiiic.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
