written by Jasper II.IV

After four years, Zeroville has been acquired for theatrical release by myCinema. The comedy film will hit cinemas in September. Also, visit our gallery for a still of Dave as Montgomery Clift.

DEADLINE – Originally, Alchemy took domestic rights at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival to Zeroville months before the company capsized due to bankruptcy. Since its pick-up at IFF, Zeroville unfortunately became entangled in Alchemy’s financial woes and was thrown into distribution limbo until the US distribution rights were recently acquired by NAGRA. The pic will hit cinemas in September. The comedy based on Steve Erickson’s novel about a young actor who arrives in Hollywood during a transitional time also stars Seth Rogen, Megan Fox, Joey King, Will Ferrell, Dave Franco, Danny McBride, and Jacki Weaver.

‘Easy’ Season 3 Premiere Date

written by Jasper XXX.III

Netflix has announced that the third and final season of the anthology series, Easy, will premiere on May 10th!

Creator Joe Swanberg’s “Easy,” returns for a third and final season on May 10, only on Netflix. This season of the anthology series consists of nine episodes and will feature some new faces as well as many returning fan favorite characters, all of whom are navigating the modern maze of love, sex, technology, and culture in Chicago.

From Creator, Director and Executive Producer Joe Swanberg: “EASY has been the most exciting and important project of my career. The anthology format allowed me to explore a range of stories and characters, but small moments of incidental overlap, or deep relationships between characters, connected the episodes enough that we were able to build a fictional community rooted in a real Chicago.

The support, flexibility and trust that Netflix provided, combined with their global reach, made this a completely unique experiment. The fact that I was able to collaborate with so many of my favorite actors took an already dreamy experience to the next level. I couldn’t be more proud of the new season and I can’t wait to share it.”

The new seasons stars Elizabeth Reaser (The Haunting of Hill House), Michael Chernus (Orange is the New Black), Jake Johnson (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) , Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Black Mirror: San Junipero), Marc Maron (GLOW), Jane Adams (Sneaky Pete), Melanie Lynskey (Togetherness), Kate Micucci (Another Period), John Gallagher, Jr. (The Newsroom), Megan Ferguson (Casual), Sophia Bush (Chicago P.D.), Kiersey Clemons (Lady and the Tramp), Jaz Sinclair (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Jacqueline Toboni (Grimm), Zazie Beetz (Atlanta), Aya Cash (You’re The Worst), David Franco (The Disaster Artist), Evan Jonigkeit (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Danielle MacDonald (Dumplin’), Kali Skrap, Lindsay Burdge (Her Smell), Cliff Chamberlain (Altered Carbon), and Nicky Excitement (Win It All).”

written by Jasper XII.III

Dave will be behind the camera on his next project as he makes his directorial debut in the horror film, The Rental. His wife, Alison Brie, and Dan Stevens are set to star. Sending the best of luck to Dave! We’re sure you’ll do great.

DEADLINE – Dave Franco is set to make his directing debut with the horror thriller The Rental, and Alison Brie and Dan Stevens will star with Sheila Vand and Jeremy Allen White. The film will be fully financed by Black Bear Pictures, which is producing along with Franco’s Ramona Films. Shooting begins April in Oregon.

Franco & Joe Swanberg wrote the script. Producing is Ramona’s Vince Jolivette, Elizabeth Haggard, and Dave Franco, alongside Black Bear’s Ben Stillman and Teddy Schwarzman. Joe Swanberg and Chris Storer are also producing and Black Bear’s Michael Heimler is executive producing along with Sean Durkin.

The Rental is a character-driven horror thriller about two couples who rent a vacation home for what should be a celebratory weekend get-away.

Franco confirmed for Deadline and said he “couldn’t be more excited about partnering with Black Bear and to be working with such an amazing group of actors for my directorial debut.”

Dave Franco Joins Michael Bay’s ‘Six Underground’

written by Jasper XX.VII

Dave has joined the ensemble cast of Michael Bay’s Netflix action movie, Six Underground. Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Adria Arjona, and Corey Hawkins have also signed on to the big-budget action film led by Ryan Reynolds. No further details, have been officially released, but being the first to report the casting, Collider shared some possible info about the film.

Not much is known about the actual plot of Six Underground, though the script was written by Reynolds’ Deadpool and Deadpool 2 scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, who will also serve as executive producers. Interestingly enough, the tone of the film is said to be in the vein of Deadpool meets Mission: Impossible. Reynolds will lead a team of four men and two women on some kind of mission to stop evil, so he’ll play One (naturally) and Franco is making a deal to play Six.

Six Underground will start filming later this month and will be released worldwide in 2019.

“The LEGO Ninjago Movie” is heading to San Diego Comic-Con!

written by Neide XXVIII.VI

Fantastic news for all our The LEGO Ninjago Movie fans! It has been announced that the movie will be making its way to San Diego Comic-Con, along with the TV show! While there is no confirmation yet of Dave’s appearance at the convention, he is part of the cast and so, there is a high chance we will be seeing him in San Diego next month!

The biggest question about this year’s Warner Bros. panel isn’t if it’s happening — but rather, what they’ll be bringing (beyond, of course, a certain Justice League). Today, that question has been answered in part.

The LEGO Batman Movie director and executive producer of The LEGO Ninjago Movie, Chris McKay, was asked today on Twitter if Ninjago would be at San Diego Comic-Con — and his answer? Yes!

While that doesn’t fully guarantee a Hall H presence, it seems like a lock-in. Both The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Batman Movie received time on the annual Warner Bros. Hall H panel, with cast and creatives on hand to offer a look into their respective films. Ninjago boasts a large voice cast full of Comic-Con friendly talent, including Dave Franco, Justin Theroux, Michael Peña, Kumail Nanjiani, Abbi Jacobson, Zach Woods, Fred Armisen, Jackie Chan, and Olivia Munn — so there would be plenty of cast to choose from.

Franco’s “Blood Meridian” Test Reel Online

written by Nika XXIV.VII

In honor of Child of God’s release on August 1, I’m posting a 25-minute test I did for the film version of Blood Meridian. Blood Meridian, by Cormac McCarthy, is my favorite novel. It marks the midpoint of McCarthy’s career, between the Southern Gothic stories of his Tennessee days (he grew up in Tennessee and went to high school with painter Josh Smith) and his later border-based stories (The Border TrilogyNo Country for Old Men, The Road) after he moved to Texas and then to New Mexico.

In some ways Blood seems un-filmable. It is almost Biblical in its prose. His terse prose utilizes vocabulary only found in the crannies of annals of the Old West and the specialized spheres of working men. He captures the slang of forgotten peoples so deftly, it’s as if they were his barroom friends.

I made my test for Blood Meridian three or four years ago. It stars Scott Glenn, Luke Perry, Mark Pellegrino (Lost), and my brother, Dave. We shot it in three days in some place near Yosemite that is the mule capital of the world. If you know the book, you’ll recognize that this is the sequence where Tobin recounts how the Glanton gang met the Judge, a Satan-like character and Glanton’s right-hand man. The gang was out of gunpowder and about to be caught by Apache warriors, whereupon they would be killed for lack of working weaponry. Enjoy.

Dave is the Cosmo Guy of July

written by Jenny XXII.VI

Dave is the Cosmo Guy in the July 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan. You can read the interview below and check out the scan in the gallery.

With back-to-back roles in Neighbors and 22 Jump Street, the Funny or Die regular (and James’s lil’ bro) is the man.

Your part in 22 Jump Street is pretty unforgettable …
Yes. I can confidently say that it’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever done on film — and I’ve done a lot of strange things.

Your Funny or Die videos are a riot. What cracks you up? 
Christopher Mintz-Plasse — no one makes me laugh harder than he does. Also, my two enormous cats. They are 17-pound tabbies who love to spoon. There’s a lot of cat incest going on in my house.

If you were on Tinder, what would your tagline be? 
“I go to sleep every night with 34 pounds of cat on top of me.” That would probably scare off 90 percent of the Tinder community, but for the 10 percent that embraces it, I’ve got nothing to hide from there.

Would you ever date one of James’s exes? 
No. It’s a lose-lose situation. Either I’m dating the girl he used to date and it ends up horrible, or it ends up great, we get married, and then have awkwardness for the rest of our lives when James is around.

Can we talk about dick pics — have you ever sent one?
I don’t think I’ve ever sent a full-on dick pic. Maybe a bulge pic? Like pressing up against those jeans. But never a full-skin, graphic, close-up dick pic. I don’t think any girl wants to see that! Bulge pics are the new black.

@AndreaKCC: What are your guilty pleasures?
I recently got into The Voice. But I only like watching the first couple of rounds, when all the power is in the judges’ hands. It feels like once the vote is in America’s hands, it’s more of a popularity contest.
