Interview: Writer, Director Allison Burnett on ‘Ask Me Anything’

Chicago – The number of writers who have adapted and directed their own novels as films is a very small and elite club, and it includes writer/director Allison Burnett. His 2014 film, “Ask Me Anything,” is being released on DVD on March 3rd, 2015, and features Britt Robertson, Justin Long, Christian Slater and Martin Sheen.

Ask Me Anything” was adapted by Burnett from his 2009 novel “Undiscovered Gyrl,” and is a gritty and multi-layered story of a girl blogger whose truth telling gets in the way of her expectations. Up-and-coming actress Britt Robertson portrays Katie Kampenfelt, taking a sabbatical between high school and college. Along the way, she can’t help being attracted to older men, including characters portrayed by Justin Long, Christian Slater and the always virtuous Martin Sheen. “Ask Me Anything” is a modern and incendiary love story, if loving yourself becomes necessary for survival.

Jane Got a Gun

This one's already been pretty dramatic, what with most of the cast quitting and then director Lynne Ramsay departing the project on unamicable terms. So it'll be interesting to see what this femme western actually ends up looking like. Natalie Portman slings the guns, Rodrigo Santoro, Ewan McGregor and Joel Edgerton help and hinder, Gavin O'Connor is the sheriff/director who took over from Ramsay.

New Line Acquires Untitled Noir Thriller from Writer Allison Burnett

New Line Acquires Untitled Noir Thriller from Writer Allison Burnett
New Line Cinema has picked up an untitled noir thriller from screenwriter Allison Burnett, who recently wrote Gone for Lionsgate and Underworld Awakening for Screen Gems.

No story details were revealed, although the sensual project is being compared to the 1981 thriller Body Heat. The acquisition is also unique because it comes with no producers or actors attached, which is uncommon in today's Hollywood landscape where studios primarily lean towards package deals. The deal marks his first pitch sale, after making a career from spec screenplay sales and studio assignments.

Allison Burnett's other writing credits include Fame, Untraceable, Feast of Love, Resurrecting the Champ, and Autumn In New York.

No production schedule was released for this new untitled project.

MTV's #8 Movie Of The Year Is '50/50'

MTV's #8 Movie Of The Year Is '50/50'
I kept fearing "50/50" would take a left turn onto Sappy Boulevard, plod past Preachy Junction and come to a rest in a town populated by "Dying Young," "Autumn in New York" and "Sweet November," where everyone learns pat lessons and becomes better people (except for those who die; those unfortunate folks just help us learn something about ourselves before they pass into the Great Cheesy Beyond).

"50/50" is a movie about cancer, after all, about a young man with the disease. At a certain point star Seth Rogen would have to cease being Seth Rogen, and the whole film would become some Ya version of "Beaches," right?

Wrong, wrong, wrong. Based on writer Will Reiser's own experiences and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a young radio producer suffering from a rare form of cancer, "50/50" pulls off the magic trick of staying consistently funny, sweet, affecting and real — and never, ever cheesy.

‘Gone’ Trailer – Amanda Seyfried Hunts a Possibly Imaginary Serial Killer

‘Gone’ Trailer – Amanda Seyfried Hunts a Possibly Imaginary Serial Killer
[1] The first trailer has dropped for Gone, Heitor Dhalia's thriller about a young woman named Jill (Amanda Seyfried) who comes home to find that her sister Molly (Emily Wickersham) has mysteriously vanished. Jill is sure Molly's been kidnapped by the same serial killer Jill escaped from two years prior, but the police aren't convinced -- so Jill takes matters into her own hands to rescue her sister. It's a standard-issue thriller premise, and there's not much about the trailer that really sets Gone apart from dozens of similar movies. (The utterly forgettable, Seo-unfriendly title doesn't help matters, either.) Still, there's always the possibility it'll wind up a satisfying if not especially imaginative take on the genre, and Seyfried usually makes for a compelling lead. Watch the trailer after the jump. [via Collider [2]] What's there to say, really? The trailer is neither so awful as to be worthy of ridicule nor so

Happy 40th birthday, Winona Ryder; our Gen-x crush is unabated

  • Pop2it
Saturday (Oct. 29) is Winona Ryder's 40th birthday. We'd like to wish her a happy one, and also thank her for being a significant part of our pop-culture lives.

And by "we," I mean "I." I'm not (necessarily) speaking for the rest of the Zap2it crew here, but as a full-fledged member of Generation X, Ryder is something of a touchstone for me. Starting with "Beetlejuice" and continuing through the great "Heathers" and "Edward Scissorhands," her early work formed the basis of a pretty serious crush for my teenage self (along with, I'm guessing, a whole lot of other guys born between 1969 and '75).

Yes, she was very pretty, but the characters she played were also smart and sarcastic and gave as good as they got. She was basically the dream girl for a certain subset of the teenage male population. She was also the first movie star who
