Manis Film announced that production started on Big Sky, the English-language debut of Mexican helmer Jorge Michel Grau (the original We Are What We Are). The film will star Bella Thorne (upcoming The Familymoon with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, and Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day with Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner), Kyra Sedgwick (Emmy and Golden Globe winner for The Closer; The Possession; upcoming films Kill Your Darlings and Reach Me), Frank Grillo (The Grey; End of Watch; Zero Dark Thirty; upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier), and Aaron Tveit (Les Miserables; Howl; USA's Graceland). Principal photography commenced this week in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Jorge Michel Grau's Big Sky is the tale of Hazel (Bella Thorne), a teenage girl who suffers a mortal fear of open spaces. She never leaves her bedroom, which has put a strain on the relationship with her strung-out mom, Dee (Kyra Sedgwick), and is starting to take its toll on both of them. In a last ditch attempt to cure her daughter, Dee enrolls Hazel in a high-end treatment facility in the desert, hoping they will finally find the help they require so that Hazel can begin to move forward from the horrors of her past that triggered her illness. But help is the last thing that they get. When two brothers, Jesse (Frank Grillo) and Pru (Aaron Tveit), interfere with Hazel and Dee's plans in the worst possible way, Hazel must confront her paralyzing fears before they consume her and is forced to fight for her survival in the harshest conditions, all while avoiding the cunning schemes hatched by Jesse.Read More

The Possession brings this summer's movie season to a close this Labor Day weekend, with the haunting tale of an ancient demon looking for a human host, inspired by actual events. Originally entitled The Dibbuk Box, this thriller is based on several instances where people were tormented by demons known as dibbuks, who were trapped inside ornate boxes (one such instance happened right here in Los Angeles, back in 2004). Our story centers on Em (Natasha Calis), a young girl who picks up an antique box at a garage sale. Once she opens it, she becomes obsessed with her new toy, and begins lashing out at those around her, including her father Clyde (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and mother Stephanie (Kyra Sedgwick). As her behavior becomes more and more intense, Clyde and Stephanie come to learn the truth, that an evil force now resides within their little girl. I recently had the chance to speak with Natasha Calis, Kyra Sedgwick, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan about this supernatural thriller, opening in theaters August 31. Take a look at our exclusive video interviews to see what they had to say.
The Possession was released August 31st, 2012.Read More
