Arkie update

Posted By on Sat, Sep 16, 2006 at 8:21 AM

Joey Lauren Adams has her directorial debut Come Early Morning out this fall.

Billy Bob Thornton has School for Scoundrels out later this year as well as two films The Astronaut Farmer and Mr. Woodcock in post production. 

Josh Lucas had two films Glory Road and Poseidon released in 2006 as is currently working on an untitled project to be directed by Tod Williams (The Door in the Floor).

Wes Bentley, you ask?  Remember him?  He's the guy who was plucked out of a RENT audition line and got a prime time role in American Beauty.  He followed that up with a few stinkers including The Four Feathers and after a three year hiatus from the big screen, he's got four projects in the works including Ghost Rider, based on the Marvel character and starring Nicolas Cage.

Mary Steenburgen has 5 films in pre or post production.  Nobel Son, starring Alan Rickman, Danny DeVito, and Bill Pullman looks promising.  It's directed by Randall Miller, who recently directed Steenburgen in Marilyn Hotchkiss Ballroom Dancing & Charm School.  The same goes for The Dead Girl, which has an impressive cast including Toni Collete, Brittany Murphy, Marcia Gay Harden, James Franco, Giovanni Ribisi, and Kerry Washington.

And I have to mention my old friend Kathryn Francis Tucker.  While not acting, she is lighting up the production and directorial scene.  She's recently wrapped work on Oliver Stone's World Trade Center, Idlewild as well as a slew of televison programs including Grey's Anatomy. 

Any others?

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.

  • Football for UA Little Rock

    Andrew Rogerson, the new chancellor at UA Little Rock, has decided to study the cost of starting a major college football team on campus (plus a marching band). Technically, it would be a revival of football, dropped more than 60 years ago when the school was a junior college.

    When the world threatens to get you down, there is always baseball — an absorbing refuge, an alternate reality entirely unto itself.
  • Another Jesus

    If you follow the logic of Jason Rapert and his supporters, God is very pleased so many have donated money to rebuild a giant stone slab with some rules on it. A few minutes on Rapert's Facebook page (if he hasn't blocked you yet) also shows his supporters believe that Jesus wants us to lock up more people in prison, close our borders to those in need and let poor Americans fend for themselves for food and health care.
