First Trailer for the Thriller 'Cold in July' Starring Michael C. Hall

IFC Films has released online the first trailer for Cold in July, the new thriller from Stake Land and We Are What We Are helmer Jim Mickle.

In the film, while investigating noises in his house one balmy Texas night in 1989, Richard Dane (Michael C. Hall) puts a bullet in the brain of a low-life burglar, Freddy Russell (Wyatt Russell). Although he’s hailed as a small-town hero, Dane soon finds himself fearing for his family’s safety when Freddy’s ex-con father, Ben (Sam Shepard), rolls into town; hell-bent on revenge. However, not all is as it seems. Shortly after Dane kills the home intruder, his life begins to unravel into a dark underworld of corruption and violence. Twists and turns continue to pile up as the film reaches its inevitable destination: a gore-soaked dead end.

Cold in July will see a limited release May 23rd, and also stars Don Johnson, Vinessa Shaw, Nick Damici, Wyatt Russell, Brogan Hall, and Lanny Flaherty.

'Mrs. Doubtfire' Sequel in the Works; Robin Williams to Return

Fox 2000 is gearing up for a sequel to the 1993 Chris Columbus-directed box office hit Mrs. Doubtfire, which starred Robin Williams. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio has tapped Elf writer David Berenbaum to pen the screenplay, with both Williams and Columbus attached to return for the follow-up.

Mrs. Doubtfire grossed over $441 million worldwide, and starred Williams as a struggling actor and recently divorced father of three, who disguises himself as a female housekeeper to spend time with his children held in custody by his former wife (played by Sally Field).

In 1994, Williams won a best actor Golden Globe in a comedy/musical, while the movie won the Globe for best comedy/musical.

THR notes, a sequel has been in the pipeline since at least 2001, when Bonnie Hunt was tapped to write a script. Many drafts were submitted and other scribes were hired, but the project slowly died and has been inactive for years.

Paul Walker's Brothers Helping to Complete 'Fast & Furious 7'

Universal Pictures has called on Paul Walker’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, to help complete scenes in Fast & Furious 7 that would have featured the late actor.

The film’s Facebook page announced the following, in regards to the addition of Walker's siblings:

A Note to the Fans of FAST & FURIOUS

The FAST & FURIOUS saga is about family. The characters are connected by the bond of family, and it is how all of us who have worked together for more than thirteen years feel about each other. It certainly defines how we feel about our fans.

Our family experienced an unthinkable shock in November. We had to take time to grieve Paul, the brother we love and lost, and to figure out if we should move on with our film.

We came together and all felt the only choice was to continue. We believe our fans want that, and we believe Paul would want that too. Paul had already shot his dramatic scenes and most of his action for FAST & FURIOUS 7, and it’s among the strongest work of his career.

We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our FAST family. Caleb and Cody are helping us complete some remaining action for their brother and fill in small gaps left in production. Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too.

We are just under a year away from the release of FAST & FURIOUS 7, and this film is the most important we’ve ever done together. It will allow the character of Brian O’Conner to live on and let us celebrate Paul in his most defining role.

We wanted to take a moment to speak to our fans directly and thank you for the love and support you always show us as we resume our work.

Directed by James Wan and slated for release on April 10, 2015, Fast & Furious 7 stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Tyrese Gibson, Tony Jaa, Kurt Russell, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Lucas Black.
