Cold in July, Based on a Novel by Joe Lansdale, Has Been Selected for the Sundance Film Festival

  • Sundance Film Festival: Looking at the U.S. Dramatic Competition program, is there a cohesion to this year’s slate of films similar to what we’ve seen in the past?
  • Director of Programming Trevor Groth: Another thing we noted this year is the use of genre elements in films throughout all of the sections. We've got riffs on horror, thrillers, musicals, sci-fi, even westerns, and you see that in the Dramatic Competition. Life After Beth, for example, fuses zombie and young love. Cold In July and Sleepwalker are both thrillers, which you might expect to see in Park City at Midnight, but they’re playing in Dramatic Competition.

A Single Shot, adapted from the novel by Matthew F. Jones and starring Sam Rockwell and William H. Macy, is now in theaters.

I tried to excerpt an exchange from this conversation, but I just couldn’t. It’s too wide-ranging, too thoughtful, and too self-referntial for a quick soundbite. Read it for yourself!

What do North by Northwest, Apocalypse Now, and Inception have in common? They inspired Nicholas Mennuti and David Guggenheim during the writing of their debut suspense novel, Weaponized.

Breaking news! Read an excerpt from Weaponized, and you’ll see why Universal and Scott Stuber were so quick to snap up the film rights.

Well THIS has nothing to do with us, at all. But sometimes, you just have to share. (via reddit)

Apparently 1970 was THE year to be a film buff—if we’re reading this chart right, anyway.
