True Blood was on location today filming episode 2 for their final season. On location were Anna Paquin, Ryan Kwanten, Chris Bauer, Sam Trammel and Joe Manganiello. The location used was an art colony made to look like an abandoned city. The street signs showed “Saint Alice Parish” and the windows were all boarded up on the businesses. Continue reading

Main Street Films Aquires Joe Manganiello’s “LA Bare”

MAIN STREET FILMS ACQUIRES JOE MANGANIELLO’S “LA BARE” FROM 3:59
 
High profile Slamdance premiere results in competitive deal-making for theatrical release
PARK CITY, UT – Main Street Films announced today the acquisition of Joe Manganiello’s La Bare.  Manganiello’s production company 3:59 Inc., run by brother Nick Manganiello, produced the crowd-pleasing documentary.  The Magic Mike star’s directorial debut gives an insider’s look at the history, the lives and the culture of the most popular male strip club in the world, La Bare Dallas.
The movie premiered Sunday night as one of the most high-profile films in Slamdance history.  The appetite was strong and tickets were hard to come by for the sold-out, raucous premiere, which was attended by the La Bare dancers featured in the documentary, and followed by a Q&A with Elvis Mitchell after the screening.  Slamdance’s President and Co-Founder, Peter Baxter, had this to say about the screening, “During programming, we knew the audience would go wild for La Bare and they certainly did!”

Main Street Films’ Chairman, Craig Chang, and President, Harrison Kordestani, were amongst those in attendance, and after seeing the audience reaction to the film, made their opening offer in the lobby of the Treasure Mountain Inn less than five minutes after the credits rolled.  The deal is mid-six figures for North American and Chinese rights and said to include a theatrical guaranty and commitment for a minimum 20-market US release to take place in Summer 2014.
“Our mantra is ‘engaging entertainment’ and that’s across all genres,” said Harrison Kordestani, President of Main Street Films. “From indie, action, romance, drama, comedy, and now documentary…Main Street Films is committed to creating a diverse universe of films that have a unique voice and vision.  We are really impressed with what Joe has produced and are excited to partner with him on distributing La Bare in North America.”
“I was immediately impressed by Main Street’s excitement, vision, resources and character,” said the pic’s director Joe Manganiello.  “I got that sense in my gut right away that this was the right company to help launch 3:59′s flagship film La Bare, as well as form a strong partnership for future projects.”
World-renowned DJ, Zach “Z-Trip” Sciacca, composed the music for the film, enhancing the project with an additional layer of emotional depth and hipness, and played the packed after-party where multiple distributors were trying to find time to discuss a deal with the Executive Producers and film reps, Shaun Redick and Ray Mansfield, of Movie Package Company.
Pic adds another dimension to an already over-achieving career for Manganiello, who can count television star (True BloodHow I Met Your Mother), film star (upcoming SabotageMagic Mike, Raimi’s Spider-Man series), and successful author (Evolution with Gallery Books, a Simon & Schuster company) amongst his career accomplishments to date.  Now add film auteur.
The deal was negotiated by Harrison Kordestani on behalf of Main Street Films and by Executive Producers Shaun Redick and Ray Mansfield of Movie Package Company.

True Blood Season 7 Meet the New James

blog

True Blood has found it’s new “James”. Nathan Parsons has been cast to play the role of James. Luke Grimes who had played the character and love interest for Vampire Jessica had asked to be released from his contract.

TVLine reported that : “He initially joined the show because he wanted to work with [his Forever co-star] Deborah Ann Woll,” explained a source close to the actor. “But when he started reading the scripts for Season 7, he was disappointed to learn that they were going in a completely different direction with James.”

Per Ausiello:  ”According to a True Blood insider, James will find himself at the center of a surprising love triangle in Season 7.”

Another love triangle! Hmm Jessica/James/Jason perhaps?

True Blood Season 7 On Location Filming Photos Morrocan Flair

DSC_0025 (1)

True Blood season 7 filming started this week. Earlier in the week Stephen Moyer and Chris Bauer were spotted on location filming for the final season premiere episode.

photo-10Last night I was able to see the show filming in another location at a hotel in Los Angeles. The hotel was built in the 1920′s and was originally a YMCA. The decor is a Moroccan theme with vivid colors, detailed tile work and many Persian style rugs. (felt as if I were back in the Middle East where I lived for 2 years).

DSC_0028 (1)

This location seemed very suited for the action that was listed in the casting call for episode 7.01 titled “Jesus is Gonna Come”.

DSC_0029 (1)

The shots were interior ones towards the back of the hotel and also downstairs (those images are above).

DSC_0027

It was great to see Kristin Bauer van Straten. When she saw us she came right over and was all smiles for our photos.

photo-5

There was a car with a cute dog waiting with it’s owner and Kristin rolled down her window to say hi to the pup. She is such a big animal lover (and great activist for animal rights). The pup was so cute and was all wags and even ‘talked’ to her (cute little barks).

TBS79Spotted Audrey Fisher busily putting the finishing touches on the wardrobes of the many extras on location. She really out did herself with all the different looks for this episode. There were a few extras milling around and came over to us. It was fun seeing them break character with us and then go into their ‘character’ and speak a few words of Arabic.

Saw a few other possible spoilers so I won’t post about them yet. They work so hard on the show I don’t want to ruin all the action. It will be sad to see the show in the final season. Waiting sucks but at least they are busy filming now!

The gallery below contains photos from the on location filming for 01/08/14. The images with watermark are the ones I took. There are a few from the hotel website that I included to show some of the areas we were unable to see due to the filming.

UPDATE:  This actor was seen at the location. Could not tell what his role was but sure it was a vampire one. Found this on tumblr stating that he has been cast as Nizor : Not confirmed if he is playing Nizor but I can see that part for him.  imdb has him listed as playing Nizor for the True Blood season 7 premiere. I am not sure he will be in any other episodes (see casting call..)

Casting call stated:
[NIZOR] Male, Persian, late 30s to 50s. This burly vampire involved in a game of Russian roulette in a Moroccan bar derives courage and comfort from his faith in Allah…GUEST STAR

Walking With the Wounded UPDATE Race Suspended

WWTWDay 5

A new update from Walking With the Wounded-

On Day 5 of the Virgin Money South Pole Allied Challenge, as the teams arrived at their first Checkpoint, it became obvious that underneath the concrete determination of all the team members, the harsh reality of the Antarctic was starting to take its toll.

With the safety of all those involved at the forefront of Expedition Director, Ed Parker‘s mind, the following decision has been made going forward for the Virgin Money South Pole Allied Challenge:   Continue reading

Here’s an update from Ed Parker after Day 3:

 

Ed Parker, Team Noom Coach, updates the voice diary on day three and talks about how the teams are progressing in the race and how they manage to stay warm over night in Antarctic temperatures.

“Good evening, it’s Ed Parker from Team Noom Coach, end of Day 3. The US Team has done just about exactly the same distance as yesterday: 21.7 miles. We find ourselves camping this evening right next to the Commonwealth team, who’ve had a good day. They started 3 kilometers behind us and have managed to catch up during the day. But very nice to see them this evening. The Brits are still up front and going well. The weather’s still very very nice but the, the terrain is really really hard. Sastrugi all day long, which just takes it out of your legs a bit, and a real challenge for Ivan. But we’re getting there. We’re all pretty knackered. It’s been a long day but we’re now putting up our tents. The extraordinary thing about the tents here is because of the sun the radiation and the 24 hour daylight. The inside of the tents are really lovely and warm, and so actually at night these extraordinary sleeping bags we’ve got are rather over the top. It can get a little hot, rather in contrast to the rest of the day when we’re out skiing. But all is going well. We hope people are following what we’re up to and we are very much looking forward to reaching our goal in I hope 10 or 11 days. Many thanks. Bye.”

True Blood Season 7 TVLine Chats with Stephen Moyer

Michael Ausiellos spoke with Stephen Moyer and tried to get some more True Blood season 7 spoilers. Interview excerpt below:

TVLINE | When I spoke to Brian at the end of Season 6, he mentioned that this final season would be a reset of sorts for Bill. He specifically said that he doesn’t want to see Bill be an a–hole anymore. Reaction?
I think that it’s really hard. The characters can’t [always] be who the audience — or the actor — wants them to be at all times. That would be dull. A bunch of people loved Bill and Sookie together, but a whole bunch of people didn’t. So you can’t just please this bunch or that bunch. As [series creator] Alan Ball once said, “I’m not interested in people being happy.” And I’ve always said, as soon as you see one of our couples get together, you know [they're] f—ed. As soon as Hoyt and Jessica got together I was like “No! They’re going to f—ing kill this, I know they are!” Because [that relationship] was so beautiful… I loved playing [Bill]. I love him. Whether they’re were things that I feel were done well or badly or right or brilliantly, I love him.

TVLINE | Brian also said the final season will focus more on Bill-Sookie, specifically the Bill-Sookie-Alcide triangle.
I know nothing. I’m directing the first episode, as you probably know, and I haven’t seen [the script]. We shoot [The Sound of Music Live] on the fifth of December and I start prep on True Blood on the ninth.

TVLINE | Wow, no break for you.
No. [Laughs].

TVLINE | Personally, do you think Bill and Sookie are the endgame?

I don’t know whether they can be, given everything that’s happened between them. What Bill did was open up something inside her that she had never had before. He was the key to a new world for her. And maybe that’s all he was supposed to be — a window into that world. I don’t think that there is a right or wrong answer. I think a bunch of people would be happy if that was the story and a bunch of people would be pissed off if that was the story. I don’t read that s–t, so I don’t care, ultimately. All I want to do is do the show and have fun doing it.

TVLINE | What does Anna think?
She would have a completely different answer. She would probably say, “Sookie should go off and become a barwoman in New York.”

TVLINE | How are you feeling emotionally about this chapter of your life coming to an end?
Sad… You know what a crazy group of people it is. Around Episode 4 or 5 [of every season] we always start getting panicked about that season ending, because it’s a f—ing family. That word is bandied about a little bit too much, but it really does feel like [a family]. I’m going to be very excited about what’s to come [career-wise], but slightly bereft that it’s all going to be done.
