With a title like Goats, there's no telling what a movie is going to be about, but, luckily, Reelz caught up with star David Duchovny at the Goats premiere to get the answer.
It is a true coming-of-age story, but it's realistic and it's a little harder-edged. It's just a smart, well-observed movie that parents and teenage kids would enjoy together.
More specifically, Goats is based on the novel of the same name by Mark Poirier and follows teenager Ellis (Graham Phillips), who is preparing to go to prep school, while balancing his neediness of his New Age, hippie mother (Vera Farmiga) and trying to bridge the emotional gap between himself and his straight-laced father (Ty Burrell). There's also Duchovny's Goat Man, Ellis' pot-smoking mentor, though Duchovny says that the character isn't your typical goat-trekking, pot-growing parental figure. more on Goats; plus watch the trailer >> Posted 08.10.12 by Ryan
Earlier this month, Demi Moore was cast as feminist author Gloria Steinem in Lovelace, the biopic about the life and career of the late 1970's porn star Linda Lovelace. Only three weeks later, Moore has dropped out.
Moore's recent hospitalization was cited as the reason for the actress' sudden exit and her recovery will be keeping her busy. "Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health," said Moore's rep in a statement to THR. "She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends."
Just as Moore has dropped out, Chloë Sevigny has joined the cast, THR separately reports. Sevigny will play a feminist journalist working for a men's magazine that is on assignment to uncover the real Lovelace (Amanda Seyfried). Livingston and Taylor to be haunted >> Posted 01.26.12 by Ryan
Writer-director Dylan Kidd made an impression with his 2002 debut movie Roger Dodger, but has been mostly absent since until co-writing and directing 2004's little-seen P.S. and, most recently, directing episodes of the Adult Swim series Children's Hospital. Now Kidd is looking to get back to directing movies with the comedy Get a Job for CBS Films.
Variety reports that Miles Teller (Project X) is in negotiations to star in the movie as a college graduate who, along with his friends, attempts to enter the working world during a recession. Offers have been made to Anna Kendrick (Up In the Air, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) and Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) for unspecified roles, while Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Kick-Ass) and Jay Pharaoh (Saturday Night Live) could appear in the movie as well. Jesse Eisenberg, who co-starred in Kidd's Roger Dodger, would appear in a cameo.
None of the actors are confirmed yet, as CBS Films has yet to give Get a Job the official greenlight. Therefore, the movie has no official start date, but, according to the report, shooting could start as early as next month. Newcomers Kyle Pennekamp and Scott Turpel wrote the Get a Job script.

Just when it seemed like Paramount's World War Z might be in financial trouble, the adaptation of Max Brooks' best-selling novel hired director of photography Robert Richardson (Shutter Island, Inglourious Basterds) and seemed poised for a June production start. Now, Brad Pitt has some company in the cast.
THR reports that Mireille Enos, star of AMC's critically acclaimed drama The Killing, has joined the cast of World War Z and will play the wife of Pitt, a U.N. worker, and the mother to two girls.

Considering the information lock-down that Warner Bros. and director Christopher Nolan are likely installing for The Dark Knight Rises, their upcoming sequel to The Dark Knight, fans will likely have to hear many rumors before any true details are presented (a "Marion Cotillard to play Catwoman or Talia Al Ghul" rumor already floated around in August). The latest rumor claims that Charlize Theron, Vera Farmiga, and The Burning Plain actress Kacie Thomas are being sought for two female lead roles in the highly-anticipated sequel. While the rumor remains unsubstantiated, the roles the actresses are rumored for definitely draw interest. What roles are they (supposedly) up for? >> Posted 11.04.10 by Ryan
