Magnolia picks up Experimenter

Posted by admin with No Comments


The Wagner/Cuban Company’s Magnolia Pictures announced today that they have acquired North American rights to “Experimenter”, a new film written and directed by Michael Almereyda.

“Experimenter” stars Peter Saarsgard as Stanley Milgram, who shook the world in the 1960s with his famous Yale study on obedience to authority known as the “Milgram Experiment.”

“Experimenter” premiered this year at the Sundance Film Festival where it was heralded by critics as one of the best films at the festival. The film features a stellar ensemble cast, including Winona Ryder, Jim Gaffigan, Taryn Manning, Anton Yelchin, Kellan Lutz, John Leguizamo, Anthony Edwards, Josh Hamilton, Lori Singer, Vondie Curtis-Hall and Dennis Haysbert. The film was produced by Uri Singer, Fabio Golombek, Isen Robbins and Aimee Schoof. Magnolia is eyeing a theatrical release later this year.

In 1961, social psychologist Stanley Milgram conducted the “obedience experiments” at Yale University. The experiments observed the responses of ordinary people asked to send harmful electrical shocks to a stranger. Despite pleadings from the person they were shocking, 65 percent of subjects obeyed commands from a lab-coated authority figure to deliver potentially fatal currents. With Adolf Eichmann’s trial airing in living rooms across America, Milgram’s Kafkaesque results hit a nerve, and he was accused of being a deceptive, manipulative monster. EXPERIMENTER invites us inside Milgram’s whirring mind, beginning with his obedience research and wending a path to uncover how inner obsessions and the times in which he lived shaped a parade of human behavior inquiries.

In “Extraction” Lutz plays Harry, the son of Willis’ kidnapped CIA agent character Leonard.

Lutz said the opportunity to be Willis’ son is especially gratifying since he’s a huge fan and he really wanted to play the son of Willis’ John McClane character in 2013’s “It’s a Good Day to Die Hard.”

“This is my chance to play his son in a ‘Die Hard’-esque movie where you have Bruce and explosions, comedy, heart and the relationship between the father and son,” Lutz said.

Lutz was starstruck by his venerable co-star.

“Of course before (Willis) left, I was like, ‘Bruce, I’ve gotta get a photo with you,” he said. […]

Kellan Lutz Joins Bruce Willis in Extraction

Posted by admin with No Comments


According to Deadline, the amount of butt to be kicked in the Bruce Willis-led thriller Extraction has just gone up a notch as actress/MMA fighter Gina Carano (Haywire, Fast & Furious 6) and Kellan Lutz (The Expendables 3, The Legend of Hercules) are set to join the Steven C. Miller film, which will shoot in Alabama from a script by Umair Aleem and Max Adams.

Willis will play a former CIA operative who hasn’t been the same since his wife was murdered. His son is rookie CIA agent Harry Turner (Lutz) following in his footsteps developing a super-weapon called the Condor. When dad is kidnapped by a terrorist group, Harry launches his own rescue operation which leads to a conspiracy that will change his life forever.

Carano co-stars as Victoria, a tough field operative assigned to hunt down Harry. Dan Bilzerian, Lydia Hull and Tyler Olson also star.

Extraction is produced by Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films’ Randall Emmett and George Furla with Aperture’s Adam Goldworm. Tim Sullivan, Brandon Grimes and Gus Furla as co-producers. The movie will be released in the U.S. in 2016 through Lionsgate/Grindstone.

Carano was recently cast as opposite Ryan Reynolds as mutant Angel Dust in Tim Miller’s Deadpool, and is currently filming Kickboxer: Vengeance opposite Dave Bautista. Lutz has a co-starring role in the Stanley Milgram biopic Experimenter, which debuted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

Kellan Lutz play Alex Koves on the big screen adaptation of Sandstorm

Posted by admin with No Comments

From CBS Detroit:

DETROIT (WWJ) — A big screen adaptation of a novel written by a former longtime Detroit TV news anchor is slowly coming together.

Former WJBK news anchor and author Alan Lee spoke with WWJ Newsradio 950’s Zahra Huber about the latest casting for the lead role of his book Sandstorm.

Lee, who moved to Hollywood where he has been working on the script for the big screen adaptation, says they’ve chosen Kellan Lutz to play Alex Koves. Lee said that Lutz is just how he imagined his character.

“He’s wonderful to work with, he’s so personable, he’s not what you would have as any typical Hollywood actor in your mind,” Lee said. “He is none of those things — he doesn’t seem to have an ego, he just is very easy to get along with. He’s very charitable and is giving, and things of that nature.

“I could not have asked for a better choice,” Lee said.

Lutz is best known for his role in the Twilight series, as well as his most recent film, The Legend of Hercules.

“As a guy, I’m comfortable with saying this — he’s very easy on the eyes. That part I think he will definitely sell easily,” Lee said. “Almost at first sight you go, ‘this guy is perfect.’”

A filming date for the project has not yet been released.
