Holt McCallany and Vincent Pastore Set To Star In “Iron Terry Malone”

Holt McCallany and Vincent Pastore Set To Star In “Iron Terry Malone”

Holt McCallany

Creative Alley Productions, in association with All Things Creative and Brazen Giant Productions, have announced that actors Holt McCallany (“MindHunter”) and Vincent Pastore (“The Sopranos”) will headline the upcoming dark comedy “Iron Terry Malone”. The screenplay, based on true events, hails from award-winning actors/writers Christian Keiber and Robert John Keiber. The film will be directed by award-winning filmmaker Johnny Greenlaw (Mommy’s Box).

Utilizing many of the same locations used by Elia Kazan’s On The Waterfront (1954), the film is set largely in Hoboken, N.J., with the owner and ?ve regulars teaming up to kill off one of their own to save their favorite bar from closing. McCallany, the acclaimed star of Netflix’s ‘’Mindhunter’’, plays a local mobster named Mean Mike, who with the bar’s owner Harry Moffet, played by John Doman (The Wire), hatch the plan to off the town beggar and drunk “Iron” Terry Malone, played by Pastore.

Befriending Malone by getting him so drunk he can’t think or remember where he is, the six would-be assassins ?rst try poisoning him. Then, they try freezing him. Then, they run him over with a car, but Malone will just not die! And as summer turns to winter, things go from bad to worse, as this unlikely group of killers begins to turn on each other and ?nd out just why their marked man is called “Iron” Terry Malone.

“What excites me about this ?lm, besides the stellar cast, is the story and screenplay”, says Greenlaw. “The fact that it is based on actual events, that took place many years ago, we get to look inside the depths of humanity and what you’re willing to sacri?ce just to get by in life. I look forward to bringing this dark comedy to the big screen.”

Adds writer Christian Keiber : “Iron Terry Malone”, is a true passion project of mine. To be able to bring this ?lm to life alongside my friends and family, both in the cast and crew, is the sole reason I became a ?lmmaker.”

In addition to McCallany, Pastore and Doman, the film’s superlative ensemble also includes, Christian Keiber (“Gotham’’), Bill Sorvino (“Who’s Jenna..?”), Kerry McGann (“Bloodrunners’’), Johnny Greenlaw (“Mommys Box”), Robert John Keiber (“Trust Me, Im a Lifeguard), Maureen Van Zandt (“The Sopranos’’), and Gary Pastore (“The Deuce’’). Sam Calagione, owner of Dogfish Head Brewery, the official beer sponsor of the film, will also appear in the movie.

Kerry McGann, Bill Sorvino, Johnny Greenlaw, Jason L. Koerner and Bryce C. Campbell serve as producers, with Christian Keiber as executive producer.

“Iron” Terry Malone begins production in Hoboken, NJ in November.- ENDS

80s Classic ‘Big’ To Return to Movie Theaters For 30th Anniversary Celebration!

80s Classic ‘Big’ To Return to Movie Theaters For 30th Anniversary Celebration!

Thirty years ago this summer, 12-year-old Josh Baskin uttered a secret wish to a carnival fortune-teller machine and made movie history as he grew up overnight, turning director Penny Marshall’s Big into a box-office smash and one of the defining films of the 1980s.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Big, Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies (TCM) and Twentieth Century Fox are bringing its magic back to movie theaters throughout the U.S. as part of the yearlong TCM Big Screen Classics series. This special presentation will also include pre- and post-film commentary by TCM Primetime host Ben Mankiewicz.

Tickets for Big can be purchased online at www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices.

Big will play in more than 700 U.S. movie theaters on Sunday, July 15, and Wednesday, July 18, at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. each day (local time), through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network (DBN). A complete list of theater locations is available on the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

Filled with the “zip and exuberance of a classic romantic comedy” (The Washington Post), Big is “funny, warm, sophisticated and, above all, imaginative from start to finish (Los Angeles Times). Tom Hanks stars as the 30-year-old Josh, whose desire to leave childhood behind and become a grown-up comes with consequences he never imagined, leading to an adventure that takes him into Manhattan, where he becomes an executive at a toy company.

For his role, Hanks received his first Best Actor Oscar® nomination. The film’s screenwriters, Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, were also nominated for their work on Big, which co-stars Elizabeth Perkins, Robert Loggia, John Heard, Jared Rushton, David Moscow as young Josh, and Mercedes Ruehl as his worried mother.

Big is the film that really cemented Tom Hanks’ place as a superstar, and it’s easy to see why – it’s one of the sweetest and most charming comedies ever made, and it’s a real pleasure to bring such a beloved film back to movie theaters as a summertime treat thanks to our partnership with Turner Classic Movies,” said Tom Lucas, Fathom Events Vice President of Studio Relations.

Director Drew Fortier Releases Never-Before-Seen Footage From ‘Attack of Life: The Bang Tango Movie’

A must-see rock doc!

Director Drew Fortier has just released a previously unreleased clip from his riveting 2015 documentary, ‘Attack of Life: The Bang Tango Movie.’

Of the clip, Fortier says: “This is from the rough cut of the movie and this clip does not reflect the personalities of those involved and is merely a snippet in time “in the moment” situation of a band on tour that many acts experience while on the road. Everyone featured in the clip are lovely, talented all around good hearted people. This is only shows a bit of the “taking the piss out of each other” moment which is more innocent than it seems.”

In The Mouth Of Madness [Collector’s Edition] boasts several exciting new special features, including a new audio commentary with director John Carpenter and producer Sandy King Carpenter, discussing the 1995 film.

Inspired by the tales of H.P. Lovecraft, this shocking story is, in the words of its acclaimed director, “horror beyond description!” Sutter Cane (Jürgen Prochnow, Dune, The Seventh Sign) is the best-selling author whose newest novel is literally driving readers insane. When he inexplicably vanishes, his publisher (Charlton Heston, Soylent Green, Planet Of The Apes) sends special investigator John Trent (Sam Neill, Daybreakers, Dead Calm) to track him down. Drawn to a town that exists only in Cane’s books, Trent crosses the barrier between fact and fiction and enters a terrifying world from which there is no escape.

Chevy Chase takes center stage in 1992’s Memoirs of an Invisible Man. Thanks to a nuclear accident, Nick Halloway (Chase) has become invisible. Invisibility makes it easier to spy on agents (particularly chief adversary Sam Neill) who’ve put him in his predicament.

John Carpenter directs and Industrial Light and Magic create eye-opening effects as Nick embarks on his manic quest.

In 1978’s Someone’s Watching Me, Los Angeles newcomer Leigh Michaels moves into a chic high-rise apartment building. She loves the view. So does the Peeping Tom who lives somewhere in the adjacent tower. John Carpenter writes and directs this thriller where the breath-catching suspense starts at the moment Leigh (Lauren Hutton, American Gigolo) is framed in the lens of a telescope. For Leigh, it’s the beginning of terrors that escalate from anonymous calls and gifts to lights that mysteriously flicker to prove that someone watches every moment of her life. Leigh fights back, matching her tormentor’s obsession with her own relentless drive to uncover his identity. The prey is now predator – and that escalates the stalker’s game to a deadly new level. Someone is watching.

BOONDOCK SAINTS: ORIGINS — Troy Duffy Promises To “Flip the Superhero Paradigm 180 Degrees” With New Series!

BOONDOCK SAINTS: ORIGINS — Troy Duffy Promises To “Flip the Superhero Paradigm 180 Degrees” With New Series!

Director Troy Duffy, the creator and driving force behind the franchise, has spent recent days providing fans with exciting new details of his highly-anticipated ‘Boondock Saints: Origins’ television series.

The latest update comes via the official ‘Boondock Saints’ Instagram account. Check it out below: 

“BOONDOCK SAINTS: ORIGINS Our series will flip the superhero paradigm 180 degrees. Rather than safeguarding the public from on high like the heroes of comic book lore, the Brothers will be part of the community they protect. And they will do it without the aid of vast wealth or supernatural powers. With an innate sense of right and wrong, the boys take it all on, from the everyday unfairnesses that infuriate us to the most extreme, gut churning injustices that seem to confirm the presence of evil in our world. In terms of the lower offenses that would certainly not require a bullet, think of the last few things you saw just going about your day that pissed you off; an incident of road rage, the loudmouth drunk in a restaurant cursing with children present, parents abusing their kids in public, the macho shithead who can’t take a hint, the unbending meter maid who gives a ticket to someone who was trying to make change, a cop or employer abusing their authority. These situations and hundreds more like them are familiar to all of us. Connor and Murphy will confront and rectify these everyday transgressions in their own unique way and give many of us a satisfying “do-over” each time. The boys’ solutions will run the gamut, from funny to smart, from brutal to touching, from compassionate to zero tolerance. But only in the extreme will it require a bullet to the head. And it is here, on their dark side when the kill switch is thrown, that a deeper seduction begins… more to come. T.duff #boondocksaints #justice#BoondockOrigins #ironsides

More on this as it develops! In the meantime, check out Duffy’s other recent posts on the series and keep your eyes peeled for new info via the Official Boondock Saints pages on Facebook and Instagram.
