Rumour for a new project

What Not
By Mark Harris and Jason Gordon

Crash” meets “History of Violence” – at first glance a gangster film… but one that unfolds to explore important social issue of race, identity, and belonging. A groundbreaking, musically driven urban drama/thriller.

This is the true story of two brothers…connected by fate but divided by race. By night, Emanuel Jones works within the Italian mob who assume he’s one of their own. By day he is forced to be the caretaker for his black foster brother, Carlo, a musical savant that no one knows exists. When these two disparate worlds come crashing together for the first time, Emanuel finds a way to seemingly rid himself of each once and for all…

But he will soon learn that leaving his life behind and starting over with a woman with an equally tormented past won’t be as easy as it seems…

Producers: Henry Boger, James Gibb
Director: Mark Harris and Jason Gordon
(in talks) Actors: Winona Ryder, John Leguizamo
Location: Tennessee
Start: May ’09

Winona star of new Aussie documentary

Claire Danes, Michelle Williams, Winona Ryder and other Hollywood stars will feature in a new documentary about Australian singer Ben Lee.

Titled Ben Lee: Catch My Disease, the feature-length documentary paints an intimate portrait of the 30-year-old star who recorded his first album at age 14.

Lee is famous for hits like We’re All in This Together, Catch My Disease and Cigarettes Will Kill You, and has won several ARIA Awards.

The project, which has been seven years in the making, is by acclaimed documentary and short film director Amiel Courtin-Wilson, who has made video clips for bands like Gelbison, The Avalanches and Joel Turner.

The documentary is about pop music, spirituality, fame, family and celebrity, and includes archival, performance and interview footage with Lee and many of his famous friends, such as former girlfriend Danes.

It has received funding from the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) Premiere Fund, and will have its first Australian screening at MIFF next year. [Source]

May 22, 2008

Independent filmmakers Mark and Michael Polish said today that they have formed their own production company, Prohibition Pictures, and will be making two films back to back at Melody Ranch Studios in Santa Clarita, starting Tuesday.

“Manure,” a comedy about manure salesmen, will star Billy Bob Thornton, Téa Leoni and Kyle MacLachlan. “Stay Cool,” another comedy, will star Winona Ryder, Sean Astin and Chevy Chase.

Both scripts were written by the Polish brothers and will be directed by Michael, with Mark taking acting roles in each. The two films also will feature some of the same behind-the-scenes staff, including cinematographer David Mullen, production designer Clark Hunter and costume designer Bic Owen.
