‘White Bird in a Blizzard’ Gets North American Distributor

Posted by Alexa on April 12, 2014 • Filed under Movies, White Bird in a Blizzard

Great news! Many apologies for the lack of updates on the site recently, I have been swamped under with work and other commitments but hope to have everything back up-to-date within the next few days. You can also expect to see our beautiful new themes launched very soon. Stay tuned!

VARIETY – Magnolia Pictures has acquired the North American distribution rights to the Shailene Woodley-starrer “White Bird in a Blizzard” and plans a theatrical release for later this year.

Gregg Araki directed from his own script, based on Laura Kasischke’s novel. The drama also stars Eva Green, Christopher Meloni, Shiloh Fernandez, Gabourey Sidibe, Thomas Jane and Angela Bassett.

The film was produced by Pascal Caucheteux, Sebastien K. Lemercier, Alix Madigan-Yorkin, Pavlina Hatoupis and Gregg Araki. Why Not Productions, Desperate Pictures, Orange Studio and Wild Bunch are the production companies on board.

Woodley stars as a college-bound teenager who is just discovering her sexuality when her mother (Green) disappears — an event that barely registers with Woodley’s character. But as time passes, she begins to come to grips with how deeply the disappearance has affected her life.

“White Bird” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in late January. Variety‘s Peter Debruge gave the film a mixed review, calling it “naughty, campy and wildly uneven.”

The deal was negotiated for Magnolia by Dori Begley and Peter Van Steemburg with CAA and Wild Bunch on behalf of the filmmakers.

First Stills from ‘White Bird in a Blizzard’

Posted by Alexa on February 22, 2013 • Filed under Gallery Updates, Movies, White Bird in a Blizzard

I’ve added to the gallery the first images of Shailene as Kat Connors in the upcoming thriller White Bird in a Blizzard, directed by Gregg Araki. Hopefully we’ll be seeing and hearing a lot more about the film in coming months.

Kat Connors is 17 years old when her perfect homemaker mother, Eve, a beautiful, enigmatic, and haunted woman, disappears – just as Kat is discovering and relishing her newfound sexuality. Having lived for so long in a stifled, emotionally repressed household, she barely registers her mother’s absence and certainly doesn’t blame her doormat of a father, Brock, for the loss. In fact, it’s almost a relief. But as time passes, Kat begins to come to grips with how deeply Eve’s disappearance has affected her. Returning home on a break from college, she finds herself confronted with the truth about her mother’s departure, and her own denial about the events surrounding it…

Christopher Meloni Joins “White Bird”

Posted by Alexa on November 21, 2012 • Filed under News, White Bird in a Blizzard

It’s been a few months since we heard anything about Gregg Araki’s latest film, which, back then had Shailene Woodley attached and was simply called White Bird. Now the full title appears to be White Bird In A Blizzard and the movie has added Christopher Meloni, Eva Green, Shiloh Fernandez and Gabourey Sidibe.

Not much is known about what they’ll all be doing, besides the fact that Woodley will be playing a young woman whose life is changed dramatically when her mother disappears. Araki wrote the script and is in pre-production on the film, which will shoot, we assume, soon in case Woodley has to go and report to the Amazing Spider-Man sequel set. Though even if she does finally lock in the Mary Jane role on Spider-Man, chances are she could also work on other things in between shooting blocks.

Meloni, meanwhile, is keeping his film career ticking along after a long stretch on cop drama Law & Order: SVU. With that now finished, he’s got plenty of movies set to arrive, including Jackie Robinson drama 42, comedy They Came Together and a tiny indie pic about some bloke who can leap tall buildings in a single bound called Man Of Steel, which arrives on June 14.

Shiloh Fernandez, Eva Green Join “White Bird”

Posted by Alexa on October 16, 2012 • Filed under News, White Bird in a Blizzard

“Red Riding Hood” actor Shiloh Fernandez and Eva Green have joined future Mary Jane Watson Shailene Woodley in indie drama “White Bird”, according to Deadline.

Gregg Araki will direct the film which revolves around Woodley’s character, a young woman whose life is upended following the disappearance of her mother. Last we heard, the search was on for the roles of the girl’s parents and the lead detective on the disappearance case, though we can’t say for sure either Green or Fernandez fits any of those roles.

Fernandez played Peter, aka Love Interest #1 to Amanda Seyfried, in Catherine Hardwicke’s “Red Riding Hood” and has wrapped up filming on Brit Marling’s eco-terrorist thriller “The East” alongside Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgard, indie dramas “Deep Powder” opposite Haley Bennett and “Syrup” opposite Amber Heard, as well as the new “Evil Dead” remake opposite Jane Levy.
