Showcasing the finest in independent film, the lineup for the 29th annual Sundance Film Festival was announced on Wednesday (November 28).
This year's crop includes a lot of big name stars. According to John Cooper, director of the festival, "It's a reflection of the landscape. We notice that there's a very, very vital community of actors taking roles in independent films — well known actors in particular."
Taking to the red carpet to debut their latest project, Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller tended to press duties at the New York City premiere of "Tower Heist" on Monday night (October 24).
Joined in their efforts by co-stars Tea Leoni, Gabourey Sidibe and Matthew Broderick, who was accompanied by wife Sarah Jessica Parker, the Big Apple screening turned in to quite the well-attended affair.
Teaming up their talents for the first time since "Good Will Hunting," Ben Affleck is set to work alongside best friend Matt Damon in a project about New England’s most notorious gangster, Whitey Bulger.
Ben, who is looking to direct the Warner Bros. flick, will also take on co-starring and producing duties with Matt, who reported to play Bugler himself.
Facing even more legal problems, another woman has come forth in accusing Casey Affleck of sexual indiscretions.
The brother of Ben Affleck's latest woes have been brought forth by cinematographer Magdalena Gorka - who claims that Casey hopped in the sack with her and groped her as she slept while working together on "I’m Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix".
He usually does an excellent job of flying under the radar, but Casey Affleck has landed in the hot seat.
According to People magazine, “The Killer Inside Me” actor is being sued for sexual harassment by a female producer of his offbeat documentary about Affleck’s brother-in-law Joaquin Phoenix’s quest to become a rap star.
