Additionally, The Girl Who Conned the Ivy League starring Amanda Seyfried is also gaining traction:

“That is getting a lot of momentum. That’s got Amanda Seyfried in it. It’s about a girl who reinvents herself. She’s a humble, humdrum girl who finally has enough. She reinvents herself and ends up attending an Ivy League school and dating the guy who’s a military cadet. She did so by stealing someone’s identity, and she never meant to cause any harm. But she realizes it’s very damaging. It’s a personal character study that I think Amanda is going to crush.”

According to Twitch, Amanda Seyfried has been offered the role of Cosette in Tom Hooper’s Les Miserables. In the musical, the character is the daughter of Fantine, who is set to be played by Anne Hathaway. The actresses are close in age, but their stories are told more than a decade apart, which explains why Seyfried, who is only three years younger than Hathaway, can play the daughter. Also already attached to the film are Hugh Jackman (as Jean Valjean), Helena Bonham Carter, Russell Crowe, and Sacha Baron Cohen. The screenplay was written by William Nicholson and the film is scheduled to arrive in theaters on December 7th.

“In Time” star Amanda Seyfried is in talks to play adult film star Linda Lovelace in Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s drama “Lovelace.”

Peter Sarsgaard, who was last seen as the villain in “Green Lantern,” is in early talks to portray her pornographer husband Chuck Traynor.

W. Merritt Johnson and Andy Bellin wrote the script, which is based on Eric Danville’s book “The Complete Linda Lovelace.”

Eclectic Pictures’ Heidi Jo Markel will produce with Untitled’s Laura Rister and Jason Weinberg, as well

as Jim Young of Animus Films. Millennium Films’ Avi Lerner will exec produce.

Lovelace is the infamous star of the 1972 porn flick “Deep Throat,” which is one of the highest-grossing independent films of all time. She was just a Florida schoolgirl named Linda Boreman when she met Traynor, a would-be filmmaker who transformed her into a world-famous sex star.

After years of being victimized, Lovelace quit the business and divorced Traynor, who she accused of taking advantage of her naivete and coercing her into porn and prostitution.

Epstein and Friedman’s “Howl” star James Franco and Kate Hudson were previously attached to star before Hudson became pregnant.

“Lovelace” is expected to start production in January, the same month that helmer Matthew Wilder’s rival project, “Inferno,” is slated to go before cameras. Based on Lovelace’s autobiography “Ordeal,” film stars Malin Akerman and Matt Dillon as Lovelace and Traynor, as well as Paz de la Huerta in a supporting role.

Seyfried, who next stars in Heitor Dhalia’s thriller “Gone,” recently wrapped Justin Zackham’s comedy “The Wedding.”

She’s repped by Innovative Artists, while CAA and Authentic Talent and Literary Management rep Sarsgaard.

Partners on the project are Millennium Films, Eclectic Pictures and Untitled Entertainment. Eclectic’s Heidi Joe Markel, Animus Films’ Jim Young and Untitled’s Laura Rister and Jason Weinberg are producing. Millennium’s Avi Lerner is exec producing.

While checking for Amanda news on IMDB.com I notice there is a new film listed for her Breaking Waves I am still looking for information but will let you know what I find. IMDB can be wrong at times but let’s hope for another project for Amanda.




This is the first I am seeing on this one so I will try to track down some more information but it looks like Amanda has another movie set up to start filming soon?

According to Wicked Leaked, a new movie called The Bullet will be shot in Boston this spring.

Though we have found little additional information about the movie, it is apparently “a dark thriller about a man only known as ‘The Clockmaker’ who devises the ultimate plot of revenge against a seemingly random group of people by manipulating them to kill one another.” Amanda Seyfried and John Cusack are set to star.

Michigan is also mentioned as a potential filming location but given the current state of their tax incentives, producers may be looking for a replacement location.

Another new project has been unveiled at the European Film Market in Berlin: Amanda Seyfried thriller Gone, from Summit Entertainment, Lakeshore Entertainment and Sidney Kimmel.

Summit has scooped up domestic distribution to the project. Lakeshore and Nick Meyer’s Sierra Pictures/Affinity will now begin selling the project to foreign buyers in Berlin.

Buzzed-about Brazilian filmmaker Heitor Dhalia begins lensing Gone in April from a script by Allison Burnett.

Hollywood has been wanting to get into business with Dhalia, who makes his English-language debut with Gone.

The thriller revolves around a young woman named Jill (Seyfried) who returns home from her night shift to find her sister’s bed empty. She’s convinced the serial killer who kidnapped her two years before has come back to finish the job.

But the police do not believe Jill, who knows time is running out. With no one to turn to, she sets off to find her sister and face her abductor once and for all.

Lakeshore’s Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi are producing the thriller alongside Sidney Kimmel, Chris Salvaterra and Dan Abrams.

Gone reunites Seyfried and Summit for the third time after Dear John and Letters to Juliet.

“We are very excited to be distributing this film and working once again with both Lakeshore and Amanda,” said Summit co-chair Rob Friedman, adding it is the first time the company has partnered with Sidney Kimmel.

Rosenberg said Seyfried is the “perfect actress to play the smart and fearless heroine in Gone.”

Seyfried is next in theaters in Catherine Hardwicke’s Red Riding Hood, which opens March 11, followed by Andrew Niccol’s Now in October.

Seyfried is repped by Innovative Artists. Dhalia is repped by WME, and Burnett, the Gersh Agency.

Unless you’re a die hard Scott Pilgrim vs. the World fan, the name Mark Webber may not sound familiar — but it soon will. The indie actor wrote, directed, and stars in an untitled film about a struggling single father who is trying to raise his two year old son in the wake of the child’s mother’s death. The movie mirrors Webber’s own life, and he cast his own two-year-old as his son in the movie.

Michael Cera, Jason Ritter, Shannyon Sossamon and Amanda Seyfried either co-star or cameo as “heightened versions of themselves.” The movie is being shot for well under a million dollars and has virtually no crew — just a director of photography and a sound person. Webber is producing the film through his company Poor Rich Kids.
