Woody Allen finalizes »The Bop Decameron« cast / International + US/UK DVD & Blu-ray release dates for »SUPER«

Just because he’s going on 76 this year doesn’t mean that Woody Allen is ready to slow down just yet. The famous writer/ director has assembled yet another top-notch ensemble for his latest film project, currently entitled »The Bop Decameron«.

The full cast, which was announced yesterday, includes Alec Baldwin (»30 Rock«), Roberto Benigni (»Life is Beautiful«), Penélope Cruz (»Vicky Cristina Barcelona«), Judy Davis (»Husbands and Wives«), Jesse Eisenberg (»The Social Network«), Greta Gerwig (»Greenberg«) and Ellen Page (»Juno«). Antonio Albanese, Fabio Armiliata, Alessandra Mastronardi, Ornella Muti, Flavio Parenti, Alison Pill, Riccardo Scamarcio, Alessandro Tiberi as well as a slate of other Italian actors are set to co-star. It has also been confirmed that the director himself will return to the screen after last appearing in his own 2006 film »Scoop«.

While details about the project are largely being kept under wraps, Allen mentioned the following at a press conference at the recent Cannes film festival in May:

"It's a broad comedy, not a romantic comedy, of various tales interwoven. I'm one of them, in one of them. All the parts are quite significant, there are no cameos. There just happened to be a part that I could play. I can't play the love interest anymore, which is tremendously frustrating. My wife and myself go to Rome because our daughter is going to marry an Italian boy that she met there, and we go over to meet him and meet his family, and what ensues. The film is very broadly funny."

In addition, Variety reported the film will be made up of four separate vignettes and the other stories will focus on an American couple and two Italian couples, although none of the individual storylines will intersect.

»The Bop Decameron« is Allen’s 47th directorial effort and shooting is expected to begin on location in Rome on July 11.

Here’s the official press release:

New York (June 20, 2011) – Woody Allen announced today the full cast for "The Bop Decameron," his latest film in pre-production. Starring, in alphabetical order, are: Woody Allen, Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penélope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page. Co-stars include Antonio Albanese, Fabio Armiliata, Alessandra Mastronardi, Ornella Muti, Flavio Parenti, Alison Pill, Riccardo Scamarcio and Alessandro Tiberi.

"The Bop Decameron" is a Gravier Productions film produced by Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum. This is Allen's first film to be financed by the Italian production and distribution company, Medusa Film. "The Bop Decameron" begins production on July 11 and marks Allen’s first time shooting in Rome. His latest film, "Midnight in Paris," is currently playing in theaters.

All »SUPER« fans from the United Kingdom have a reason to rejoice. G2 Pictures will not only unleash James Gunn’s eagerly awaited superhero comedy in UK cinemas on July 8, but will also release it on DVD and Blu-ray on August 1. This means it comes out one week before the U.S. launch on August 9. Although neither G2 nor IFC Films/MPI Home Video have announced any technical specifications or bonus features yet, Gunn has revealed both discs will include an audio commentary by him and actor Rainn Wilson, some deleted scenes and additional special features like a "Making of the Title Sequence" as well as hilarious behind-the-scenes footage from the sets in Shreveport and Los Angeles.

At the same time, the Japanese can look forward to fighting crime with the Crimson Bolt and Boltie starting July 30. The people in France, in turn, are less fortunate and have to wait a bit longer until they can see what happens "between the panels". French theater owners apparently became very squeamish about the violence in »SUPER« and decided to cancel the planned theatrical release. The film is still scheduled to arrive on DVD/Blu-ray some time later this year though. But don't worry, the Germans are facing a similar situation. We have a distributor, but there is no official word yet on how and when we will get to see it, except for some special screenings in a few major German cities in conjunction with this year's Fantasy Filmfest.

In this spirit, Shut Up, Crime!

Live Broadcast of tomorrow's MTV Movie Awards powered by Popsugar / Upgrade of the Usolved news script

This year’s MTV Movie Awards will air tomorrow night and, as usual, you can expect a whole bunch of crazy award categories that classier award shows like the Oscars and the Globes simply don’t provide. Although Ellen has received several nominations for »Inception«, there is no official word yet if she is going to attend this LA-based event. Popsugar will be going live from the red carpet at 4:00 pm PT/7:00 pm ET and will interview celebrities as they arrive. Follow the link below to tune into the live broadcast!

Even if there is no news about Ellen Page, the work on this website steadily continues. New images are added to the gallery, articles and interviews are added to the press archive, the fancorner is being updated with further items like the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray of »SUPER« and so on. In the past two weeks, I worked on upgrading the old news script to the latest version. Its author recently decided to merge the free "Lite" with the rather professional "Pro" edition making some new and useful features available to everyone. While I'm satisfied with the script in general, I also have to admit the user support isn't the best and there are still some minor bugs that need to be fixed. But unlike other webmasters I'm doing my own coding, so this isn't a big deal at all. The new script has already been upgraded since Thursday and works fine as far as I can judge. It may not look like much has changed at first glance, but if you dig a little deeper and you will notice a few differences. Here is a brief description of the new features, improvements and changes.

  • Improved RSS feed: The previous version was hands down a joke. It had no formatting and html tags as well as BB codes weren't interpreted correctly. Now each posting keeps its basic layout and URLs, images and other web elements are displayed properly. I hope the updated design will even increase the chance for EPO to become an IMDb NewsDesk Partner in near future. Take a look at the two screenshots below for a pre-post comparison:
  • Revised comment function: While the original formatting including paragraph breaks and line breaks of each comment were correctly saved in the MySQL database, the script didn't output them in a suitable way. I've manually fixed this problem, so the comments are now shown correctly. At the same time, a query has been added which checks the correct format of the given email address. Since some bots try to spam certain new posts almost every day, I've modified the captcha code by using a new DotMatrix font as well as gridlines in the background and activating case sensitivity. I think the current settings provide the best balance between readability and security. In case users can't read the given code, they can generate a new one by clicking on the icon next to it. And finally the form moved to the top of the page making it easier for you to find out if your comment was successfully added or not. Again, here are some illustrative screenshots:
  • Direct links: As you may know from other scripts and sites, you can add an "id" parameter to the news page URL to directly view a specific post (Example: www.ellenpage.org/newsscript.php?id=275). The previously used "rssid" variable is still available though.
  • Enhanced search results: The "Lite" script completely displayed all posts that included the entered search word on a single page. This was not only confusing, but also generated a temporary high load on the client computer. The new layout, which I created myself, simply outputs the title and the first 500 letters of each post making the search results more user friendly.
  • Wap portal: This brand new feature was requested by long-term fan Hera B. a few years ago and is now available at "wap.ellenpage.org." As I only own an old-fashioned Sony Ericsson K750i, I haven't had the chance to test it in practice. But I used an online testing website to give it a first shot. I think it will serve the basic purpose, although there are some minor bugs that should be fixed. On the one hand, images are still embedded causing a long loading time and on the other hand, the URL's destination instead of it's caption is displayed. However, I'm willing to invest some time into further developing and optimizing it, if this feature attracts wide interest.
  • Browser compatibility: The new script has been tested with all major browsers including Internet Explorer 8/9, Firefox 3.6/4, Google Chrome 11, Apple Safari 5 and Opera 11.11 to ensure optimal usability.
As always, please leave thoughts and feedback in the comment section!

Vanishing of the Bees LA Premiere Screening hosted by Ellen Page with the directors George Langworthy & Maryam Henein

Come join the buzz at the Barnsdall Theater for the LA Premiere screening of the award-winning documentary Vanishing of the Bees, narrated by Oscar-nominated Ellen Page. Following the film, directors George Langworthy and Maryam Henein will be joined by Ellen Page for a lively discussion and Q& A.

Ample free parking is available on the upper level of the Barnsdall Art Gallery Complex – located in the heart of Los Feliz on Hollywood Blvd - one half block west of Vermont. Come beforehand to mingle and enjoy refreshments, snacks and music on the beautiful patio.

Honeybees have been mysteriously disappearing across the planet, literally vanishing from their hives. Known as Colony Collapse Disorder, this phenomenon threatens the loss of much more than honey as we depend on honeybees to pollinate one third of the food on our tables. Vanishing of the Bees chronicles the innermost thoughts and feelings of beekeepers and scientists as they fight to preserve the honeybee and make it through another day.

Featuring experts like author Michael Pollan, the film also presents a platform of solutions, encouraging audiences to be the change they want to see in the world. This highly acclaimed documentary examines the alarming disappearance of honeybees and the greater meaning it holds about the relationship between mankind and mother earth.

Ellen Page

Ellen's outstanding performance as the lead in the film Juno earned her a Oscar Nomination and a tremendous fan base. She is also known for her starring roles in Inception, Hard Candy, Whip It, and X-Men: The Last Stand. Ellen grew up in Halifax Nova Scotia surrounded by nature and has a great appreciation for the wildlife and the outdoors. Her knowledge of the agricultural and scientific issues involved in the film is extensive. She cares deeply about honeybees and holds great enthusiasm for narrating and promoting their vital story.

Ellen Page and her »SUPER« buddies on »Doug Loves Movies« / 5th anniversary of »Ellen Page Online«

Doug Benson produced another »Doug Loves Movies« podcast in front of a live audience at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles and welcomed Ellen Page, Steve Agee, James Gunn, Sean Gunn and Michael Rooker last Tuesday. Although all five guests were involved in »SUPER«, they only spoke briefly about the movie, praising Ellen's amazing performance and mentioning the successful VOD release. Most of the time was spent playing the »Leonard Maltin Game«, a regular feature of the podcast, where Benson reads the cast of an unknown movie in reverse order (star of the movie comes last) from Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide and his guests have to guess the title after deciding how many names they need to do so.

You can listen to and download the entire podcast on douglovesmovies.com, iTunes or here on EPO.

For those who care, today marks the official 5th anniversary/birthday of EPO. I actually came up with the idea of making a website for Ellen a few weeks earlier, but the 30th April 2006 is the date on which the first version finally went online. It was a day in early March that changed my life. I watched the US trailer for »X-Men: The Last Stand« and there was this sequence in the Danger Room which I believe didn't make it into the final cut: A wall explodes and Kitty looks up into the camera while lying on the ground (at 1:47). And I was like "Oh my god. Who is this girl?" I remember I read about her in a movie magazine that featured 100 facts about the movie and one of them was "Canadian actress Ellen Page is going play Kitty Pryde and replaces Katie Stuart, who replaced Sumela Kay." But I never cared about Kitty until this moment. Probably because this character barely got screen time in the first two movies and therefore wasn't as interesting as others like Wolverine or Nightcrawler. I then started doing some research and only came across a few sites with mostly outdated information. Although I hadn't seen any of her movies at this point, I was immediately convinced this attractive actress deserved a decent online presence. Why? I don't know. Maybe looking at her flipped a switch in my brain. What happened afterwards is history. »Hard Candy« and »X-Men: The Last Stand« found a wide audience which significantly increased the number of foreign people visiting the site. It soon became clear that the German version wouldn't be sufficient in the long run. As a result, a completely translated version went online on the 10th December 2006. And oh my gosh, my English was so awful at that time. I ignored comma-placement rules most of the time and kept the sentences as simple as possible. Since there was no real proof reader, you can still read these masterpieces of writing to date. However, I believe people are able to get the essence of my postings and that's what really matters. In the following years, Ellen starred in an inconspicuous independent movie about an unexpected teen pregnancy, received a Best Actress nomination from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, did some other critically acclaimed film projects and "firmly established herself as one of the most talented young actresses in Hollywood." What was started as a website dedicated to a rather unknown actress from Halifax, Nova Scotia, has turned into the first port of call for every true fan who wants to stay up to date on one of his favourite A-listers. Today, EPO features 333 German and 273 English news postings, 825 video clips available via streaming and download, 3,866 English and 328 German articles in the press archive, two galleries with 25,508 images and 4,932 icons/wallpapers, the most comprehensive filmography around, an active fan forum as well as a unique fancorner with information on DVDs, CDs, books and much more.

I'm proud of what I've achieved in the past 5 years. EPO is not like any other fan site. It's different in a good way and far superior to anything else available on the net. It's not a simple Wordpress blog decorated with some candid postings and a biography taken from Wikipedia. It has a soul, a personal tone and offers everything a real fan needs. Lately, even other news and movie websites take a look at it to get the latest information or grab some material for their articles. Twitch re-posted a clip from James Gunn's superhero comedy, BeyondHollywood used some images taken from the gallery for its »SUPER« review and a NSFW site promoted the still of Ellen in her body tight superhero costume. At the same time, Backstage.com directly linked to EPO in its recent article on Ellen. So am I completely happy? Absolutely not! Mainly because not much has changed concerning the things mentioned in my posting in October 2010. There was a short period of time where people commented on articles and gave me some feedback. Now it mostly feels like I'm talking to myself while writing and publishing a news post. Despite the release of »SUPER«, only 13 different visitors have signed the guestbook in 2011 so far. Overall, the continuing lack of general support, and appreciation for the work I'm doing here every single day, from everyone who's reading this to the young woman this website is dedicated to, is anything but motivating in the long run. Wanna have a recent example? In April 2011, I asked people to watch out for articles and reviews on »SUPER« in their newspapers and make some photos and scans so they can be shared in the gallery for everyone to read. What have I got to this day? Three "Likes" on Facebook and no article at all. That's really, really great! I could easily go on with other grievances, but I think many have already been pointed out in the previously mentioned posting. Actually, I wouldn't expect anything if I'm running a fan site dedicated to an actress like Kristen Stewart, Miley Cyrus or Emma Watson and this is just one of many others. But it's safe to say that's not the case here. There is currently only one Ellen Page fan site which really deserves this description. So why is EPO still online? Because its webmaster isn't willing to give up that easy and still hopes some things can be changed in the upcoming months. Besides, he has put too much time and effort into the website to just leave it all behind from one day to the next. And to be honest, he wouldn't know what to do with all the stuff he bought and collected in the course of the past 5 years. This includes more than 130 DVDs of Ellen's movies and series from various countries, around 40 kilograms of magazines stored under his bed and some really hard to find movie memorabilia, promo stuff and other collectibles.

Let this be a further wake-up call for all of you. Please ask yourself what this website means to you, what the internet would be without it and what you can do to keep it alive and running for all of us to enjoy. As stated before, there are so many ways to show your gratitude, appreciation, and recognition for EPO and my work. You've found an article on Ellen in a magazine or paper which isn't available in the gallery yet? Scan it or take a good photo of it. I will gladly upload your contribution and give full credit to you. You've seen Ellen at a film festival or movie premiere and taken some photos or even a video you now want to share with her fans? Please send them! You would like to contribute something by buying a current issue of a magazine which has an article on Ellen for me? That's great, because since I live in Germany it's always expensive and time-consuming to get a copy. You're a TV junkie who knows the television program inside out or you're involved in organizing movie screenings or film festivals? Maybe you can help to keep the calendar up to date. Again, this won't work in the long run without the input, feedback, help and support of the visitors, fans and people who apparently care about this project. Please help keep EPO going!

Ellen Page, Jesse Eisenberg, Penelope Cruz and Alec Baldwin will star in Woody Allen's upcoming film [updated]

According to Variety, Alec Baldwin (»30 Rock«), Penelope Cruz (»Volver«), Jesse Eisenberg (»The Social Network«) and Ellen have been confirmed for Woody Allen’s next film project scheduled to shoot in Rome this summer. Allen is directing from his own original screenplay and is apparently also planning to appear on screen. While plot details, character names and even the exact title are unknown at the moment, some online journalists are already speculating based on the actor’s types and Allen’s previous works like »Vicky Cristina Barcelona« or »Match Point« what the film will be about. Kristy Puchko from The Film Stage imagines "Baldwin will be playing the unrepentant ugly American character he’s been perfecting on 30 Rock, possibly a father (or father figure) to Eisenberg. Likely he falls for the exotic but complicated Cruz character, and Eisenberg for the quirky/cool girl Page may play. Maybe for bonus twists (and to feed into a theme Allen is oft drawn to) Page will fall for Baldwin." "Eisenberg will be playing the lead as a young American who travels to Italy and discovers some life lessons and gets romantic entangled way above his head," is what Obsessed With Film's Matt Holmes has on his mind. But these are just wild guesses. With filming starting very soon, I'm sure more details will leak in the coming months.

Although his two most recent projects – »Whatever Works« and »You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger« – have been critical and commercial flops, Woody Allen is still a legendary cinematic icon and I believe it's an honour and gift for every actor to work with him. Ellen will without a doubt have a good time in Italy and hopefully will get the chance to visit her favourite milk bar once again.

Update 04/19/2011

In a recent interview with the French newspaper Le Journal du dimanche, Allen revealed the film will be called »The Wrong Picture.« Whether that’s a working title or the actual title remains to be seen. Commenting on the cast he said that "Eisenberg was "remarkable" in »The Social Network«, Page was a "revelation" in »Juno« and there is more casting to come."

Update 05/07/2011

In talk with director Woody Allen, USA Today learned that »The Wrong Picture« is the wrong title because there isn't one yet. He currently describes the project as "a comic picture, an out-and-out comedy." Meanwhile, it has also been confirmed Italian actor, comedian, screenwriter and director Roberto Benigni has joined the cast and will play a part in the Rome-based movie.

Update 04/16/2011

Coinciding with the on demand release of »SUPER«, UGO has posted a viral video featuring The Crimson Bolt and sidekick Boltie speaking with Personal Security Expert Frank Corpus about crime in the streets of Austin during the 2011 SXSW Film Festival. At the same time, the title sequence has been made available via the movie's official Facebook page. Enjoy the clips!
