Independent Spirit Awards: The Complete Winners List (Updating Live)

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

“Get Out” emerged as the big winner of the 2018 Independent Spirit Awards, held Saturday on the beach in Santa Monica, Ca.

Jordan Peele’s racially charged thriller — which captivated the country and became an unlikely indie blockbuster — took Best Feature at the annual show put up by Film Independent. Peele also took Best Director.

Top acting prizes went to Frances McDormand for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” and Timothee Chalamet for “Call Me by Your Name.” Best Supporting Male went to Sam Rockwell for “Three Billboards,” and Best Supporting Female went to Allison Janney of “I, Tonya.” That makes it a virtual clean sweep for the latter two actors on the eve of the Academy Awards.

Greta Gerwig won Best Screenplay for her coming-of-age darling “Lady Bird,” while Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani took Best First Screenplay for their autobiographical comedy “The Big Sick.”

Notable below-the-line prizes went to Tatiana S. Riegel, who took Best Editing for
“I, Tonya.”  Sayombhu Mukdeeprom, director of photography on “Call Me by Your Name,” won Best Cinematography.

Comedians Nick Kroll and John Mulaney (“Big Mouth,” “Oh, Hello”) returned to host the ceremony, an annual splashy gathering of Hollywood stars and indie film luminaries willing to brave the natural lighting of  a rare daytime awards show.

’48 Hrs’ Remake In The Works At Paramount Players

Read on: Deadline.

Paramount Players is mounting a remake to the 1982 film, 48 Hrs, with Good Time sibling filmmaking team Benny Safdie and Josh Safdie along with The Carmichael Show creator and star Jerrod Carmichael and Ronald Bronstein, both on board to co-write the screenplay with Josh.

Cannes 2017: 14 Directors to Watch, From Bong Joon Ho to Todd Haynes (Exclusive Photos)

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

“It’s the thing you always dream of, to one time be in Cannes,” director Maren Ade
told TheWrap at last year’s festival. “When you’re standing in the rain making a
film in your sweaty T-shirt, and you didn’t get the shot,’ you walk home thinking,
‘I’ll never be in Cannes.’ But then maybe you shoot a scene that you think is good,
and you start thinking, ‘Well, maybe…’”
Ade got in last year with Toni Erdmann, and she’s back this year as a member of the jury
to look at the work of other directors whose Cannes dreams are now a reality. For our
fourth annual Cannes Directors Portfolio, TheWrap caught up with a cross-section of those
filmmakers. More than dozen directors are included, shot in five countries and representing
five different programs in the Cannes lineup. And we’re just scratching the surface of a
festival that has more than 60 feature-film directors in the official selection and another
two dozen in the Directors’ Fortnight and International Critics’ Week sidebars.
This may be old hat to some of them (Todd Haynes, Michel Hazanavicius, Yorgos
Lanthimos, Andrey Zvyagintsev and Bong Joon Ho have all been here in the past couple of
years), but you’ll never convince us that they don’t still thrill at walking up the red-carpeted
stairs that lead into the Palais des Festivals.

Robert Pattinson’s ‘Good Time’ Acquired by A24

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

A24 has acquired the North American rights to Robert Pattinson’s “Good Time,” TheWrap has learned.

In the crime caper, Pattinson plays a bankrobber named Connie who is trying to evade the police as they close in on him.

Sebastian Bear-McClard of Elara Pictures produced ‘Good Time,” while Josh Safdie and Ronald Bronstein wrote the script and Josh and Benny Safdie directed.

Bear-McClard, Bronstein and the Safdies previously collaborated on the film “Heaven Knows What,” a hybrid picture that blends documentary and narrative. It features Arielle Holmes, a kid the filmmaker brothers met on the subway, playing a fictionalized version of herself. The film is currently in theaters.

Since starring in the “Twilight” franchise, Pattinson has focused largely on indie roles. He starred alongside Guy Pearce in the post-apocalyptic film “The Rover” in 2014. He also appeared in David Cronenberg‘s bizarre look at the entertainment industry, “Maps to the Stars,” in February 2015.

A24 is currently generating Oscar buzz for “Moonlight,” a coming of age drama from Barry Jenkins. Upcoming releases include “20th Century Women” with Annette Bening, “Trespass Against Us” with Michael Fassbender, and “Free Fire” with Brie Larson.
