FOX SEARCHLIGHT PICTURES "READY OR NOT" Begins Production

Fox Searchlight Pictures Presidents of Production, Film and Television Matthew Greenfield and David Greenbaum announced that principal photography on READY OR NOT has begun in Toronto, Canada. The film stars Samara Weaving (THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI, “Picnic at Hanging Rock”), Adam Brody (CHIPS, SLEEPING WITH OTHER PEOPLE), Mark O’Brien (ARRIVAL, “Halt and Catch Fire”), with Henry Czerny (“Sharp Objects,” THE A-TEAM) and Andie MacDowell (FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL, SEX, LIES, AND VIDEOTAPE).

Of the Radio Silence team (SOUTHBOUND), Tyler Gillett and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin are directing with Chad Villella executive producing. The script is written by Guy Busick (URGE) & Ryan Murphy (MINUTES PAST MIDNIGHT). The film is being produced by Tripp Vinson (THE PRODIGY, EXORCISIM OF EMILY ROSE) and James Vanderbilt (THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS, ZODIAC).

“READY OR NOT is our kind of horror film. With its sly sense of humor this is a genre movie that will leave you terrified, but with a smile on your face, as you leave the theater,” said Greenbaum and Greenfield.

READY OR NOT follows a young bride (Samara Weaving) as she joins her new husband’s (Mark O’Brien) rich, eccentric family (Adam Brody, Henry Czerny, Andie MacDowell) in a time-honored tradition that turns into a lethal game with everyone fighting for their survival.

"We’ve assembled an amazing cast and crew who have come together to bring this incredible script to life,” said directors Gillett and Bettinelli-Olpin.

“We couldn’t ask for better partners than Fox Searchlight and Radio Silence as we embark on this journey,” said producers Vinson and Vanderbilt.

James Vanderbilt, Bradley Fischer, and William Sherak of Mythology Entertainment are also producers. Executive Producers are Tara Farney, Tracey Nyberg, and Radio Silence’s Chad Villella.

Sex Tape Review: Overly Sexual, Rude, Vulgar, and Absolutely Hilarious

The raunchy Sex Tape will divide audiences and critics, but who cares? Sex Tape suggests a growing practice among loving partners: that of making a raunchy testament of their escapades for posterity. But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln" for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children. The couple has a lot to lose: a burgeoning business relationship between Annie and Hank (Rob Lowe) could end if the iPad she's given to Hank exposes the video, and so the couple sets out to reclaim and wipe the incriminating …

Scarlett Johansson To Play A Sexy Alien
Scarlett Johansson as the perfect woman? A perfect alien woman?

That is what FilmNation is selling at AFM, launching Under the Skin, a sci-fi drama from Sexy Beast writer-director Jonathan Glazer.

“Johansson plays an alien on earth, disguised as the perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerizing woman. She scours remote highways and desolate scenery looking to use her greatest weapon to snare human prey -- her voracious sexuality.”
But, wait, there’s more. “She is deadly efficient, but over time becomes drawn to and changed by the complexity of life on earth. With this new found humanity and weakening alien resolve, she finds herself on a collision course with her own kind. Taking her point of view throughout, the film presents a unique look at our world through alien eyes.”

Glazer co-wrote the script with Walter Campbell and is eying a production late spring 2011.

In a statement, FilmNation CEO Glen Basner said, “We’re so very excited to be working on t…
