The Spy Who Dumped Me was one of the big winners at the E! People’s Choice Awards tonight. The hit film took home the award for Comedy Movie of 2018. The fans couldn’t get enough of the laugh out loud comedy and we don’t blame them at all. The Spy Who Dumped Me, starring Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon, tells the story of two best friends who accidentally become involved with an international conspiracy when one of the women figures out that her ex-boyfriend was a spy. Kunis took the stage to accept the award from Will Farrell and John C. Reilly and thanked the fans of course. “Guys, this is actually really cool. Thank you! We loved working on the film and are so, so happy you guys responded to it,” Kunis gushed on stage. “Thank you for taking the time to vote.” Kunis also took time during her acceptance speech to encourage fans to support people in need after the California wildfires. The Spy Who Dumped Me beat out Blockers, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again, Crazy Rich Asians and Love, Simon to win Comedy Movie of 2018 at the People’s Choice Awards. It was such a pleasure working with the post production team and we are so happy for the movie’s success!
Kathleen Turner, Ginnifer Goodwin and Kyle Bornheimer are set to star in Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings: These Old Bones, an episode of Netflix’s upcoming eight-episode anthology series that showcases the stories, memories and inspirations behind Parton’s most beloved songs. This is the second episode of the anthology series to have its cast announced following Jolene, which will star Julianne Hough as the title character, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Dallas Roberts and Parton. Scored by new and classic Parton music, each stand-alone episode in Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings will begin with an introduction by Parton talking/singing to camera (as herself) about the meaning behind each song. Each episode will feature a different cast, and Parton will star/guest star in some. They will vary in tone, from love stories and inspirational tales to family dramas, Westerns, and revenge comedies. We are so lucky to be working with the post production team and can’t wait to check out the series! All eight episodes will launch at once in 2019 on Netflix.
HBO Films’ long-in-the-works Deadwood movie has begun production 12 years after the end of the premium network’s Emmy-winning Western series from David Milch. Most of that original cast is returning for the film, which takes place 10 years after the events of the series that ran three seasons from 2004-2006. The film includes a new cast member, Jade Pettyjohn, who will play the character of Caroline. The plot, per HBO: The indelible characters of the series are reunited after 10 years to celebrate South Dakota’s statehood. Former rivalries are reignited, alliances are tested and old wounds are reopened, as all are left to navigate the inevitable changes that modernity and time have wrought. The Deadwood series was nominated for 28 Emmys during its run, winning eight. In July, HBO president Casey Bloys tipped an October production start for the film, and hinted at a possible spring 2019 debut. He called rustling up the original auspices for the movie “a logistical nightmare.” The network received a near-$4.2 million California Film & TV state tax credit for the production. The hardest part of getting the film up and running had been synching up the schedules of its large ensemble cast.
