ANNABELLE Director To Direct "WISH UPON"


John Leonetti, known for directing ANNABELLE and for his cinematography on box office successes including THE CONJURING and INSIDIOUS, has signed on to direct WISH UPON, a horror thriller for Broad Green Pictures. The feature, named to the 2015 Black List, was written by Barbara Marshall (“The Listener”) and will be produced by Busted Shark Production’s Sherryl Clark (VIRAL, CLOVERFIELD). The movie is expected to begin production in the fall.

When 16-year-old misfit Claire finds a magic box that promises a chance at the life she’s always wanted, she never could have guessed that each wish would demand a deadly payment.

“We are thrilled that John has come onboard to direct WISH UPON,” said Broad Green Pictures’ Chief Creative Officer Daniel Hammond. “His impeccable eye towards realism and talent for catching audiences off-guard will, without a doubt, make this film unforgettable.”

The deal was brokered on behalf of Leonetti by CAA and Andrew Hurwitz, Frankfurt Kurnit Klein + Selz, PC.

First Look At Rene Zellweger As Judy Garland

Renee Zellweger would be taking on the challenge of playing Judy Garland in a new biopic called, simply, Judy. If you wondered what she'd look like, you now have the chance.

Director Rupert Goold has now kicked off shooting the film in London, working from a script by The Crown's Tom Edge. The story is set in 1968 as Garland arrives in chilly, swinging London to perform at a sell-out run of her show. It's 30 years since she appeared in The Wizard Of Oz, and if her voice isn't quite the same, her intensity has grown.

She faces battles with her management and charms the musicians she works with, while also starting a romance with Mickey Deans, who will go on to be her fifth husband. Yet she's also haunted by memories of a childhood lost to Hollywood and struggling with the desire to be back home with her kids.

Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock and Michael Gambon are also in the cast, with no word yet on a release date.
