Jog A Buck for The Jogger/Argo Awards/Central Park Trailer/Rust and Bone Clip/Coming Attractions

Good Thursday to All from the Oklahoma 5A State One Act Play Competition in Wagoner, OK!


Filming continues for friend of the blog Casey Twenter making his debut as a feature co-director shooting his script of "The Jogger" (co-written and co-directed by Jeff Robison).  Check their Kickstarter account they have ongoing to further enhance the film in post-production.  Drop a dime or two and support film in Oklahoma!  Here's the link:


It may just be the opening of the awards floodgate for Ben Affleck's "Argo" as the film was honored by the Hollywood Film Awards this week for Ensemble Acting. has that story here:


Official trailer for "The Central Park Five"

Ken Burns, Sarah Burns and David McMahon's documentary about injustice in NYC in the 80's has a n official trailer.  That's linked above and  I have also linked a couple of stories announcing the trailer here:

Awards Daily:


Continuing to build momentum towards its release here in the U.S. is Jacques Audiard's "Rust and Bone" and to that end a new clip from the film is out and featured at The Playlist.  It releases here in the U.S. on Nov.23.


This "Coming Attraction" is probably as close to a lead pipe cinch as you can imagine this far away from its completion.  This week's addition to the conversation about future Telluride possibilities is Alexander Payne's "Nebraska".  Payne has become a real fixture at Telluride.  So much so that he told me in September that he has the green light to pursue films that he finds interesting for possible presentation as part of the festival.

"Nebraska" stars an incredibly eclectic cast of Bruce Dern and Will Forte of SNL and MacGruber fame(?). Also listed in the cast are: Bob Odenkirk and Stacy Keach.  The IMDb description says:

"An aging, booze-addled father makes the trip from Montana to Nebraska with his estranged son in order to claim a million dollar Publisher's Clearing House sweepstakes prize."

So, here are the various links to stories about "Nebraska" that I've been hoarding for the past few months:

From The Hollywood Reporter:

From Get The Big Picture:

"Nebraska's" IMDb entry is here:

More on Monday...have a good weekend!
