Berlin: Vera Farmiga Boards ‘Prima’ Comedy

 

Pic joins a busy Highland Film Group slate at Berlin’s EFM

Vera Farmiga is set to star in relationship comedy “Prima,” which was written by Evan Greenberg(“Sex Farce”), who will also direct.

“Prima” (aka “Dance of the Mirlitons”) turns on 12-year-old Jesse Urchin, who shocks everyone when she gets into to a posh dance school, forcing her mother to adapt to her daughter’s new milieu.

Producer Daniel Dubiecki (“Up in the Air,” “Juno”) and Lara Alameddine produce along with Canadian Screen Awards winning producer Karine Martin (“Moth Diaries,” “Maina”) under her Mediamax banner.

Highland Film Group (HFG) reps worldwide sales rights at the Berlin Festival’s European Film Market.

Clea DuVall, Sheryl Lee, Emily Alyn Lind and Ryan Bingham have joined the cast of contemporary romance “Your Right Mind,” which HFG title is also repping in Berlin.

“Mind” stars Katherine Heigl and Ben Barnes. Ami Canaan Mann directs from her own screenplay. Principal photography is currently under way in Utah.

Molly Hassell is producing with Canaan Mann and John Jencks. Jon Avnet, Rodrigo Garcia, Highland Film Group’s Arianne Fraser and Delphine Perrier, and Main Street Films’ Craig Chang are serving as executive producers.

The HFG slate also features Kelvin Tong’s new suspense- horror film “Email,” with Nikki Reed; Kevin Connolly’s “The Wright Girls,” starring Jessica Alba; and “Sanctuary,” from Spanish director Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego.

“The Wright Girls” and “Sanctuary” are both from Atlas Independent, the affiliate company of Charles Roven’s Atlas Entertainment.

Vera Farmiga on At Middleton, Bates Motel and The Conjuring

 

With her recent appearances headlining New Line’s horror hit The Conjuring as well as the A&E prequel series Bates Motel, one could be forgiven for thinking that the chiller genre is Vera Farmiga’s exclusive wheelhouse. However, the Up in the Air Oscar nominee has a long and storied resume (including Higher Ground, her 2011 directorial debut), and her most recent turn in director Glenn German’s At Middleston (now playing) bespeaks her range as a performer.

The charming rom-com, about a meet-cute during a college tour, pairs Farmiga with fellow Oscar-nominee Andy Garcia, and also features her sister Taissa in the role of her daughter. I recently had a chance to speak with the actress about what drew her to this particular project, what advice she’d give to young women trying to get ahead in the industry, and whether she prefers to work in television or film. What follows are some highlights of that conversation:

3 New Images To Prepare You For ‘Bates Motel’ Season 2 Re-Opening

 

We’ve already had two brief teasers for ‘Bates Motel’s second season and now we have 3 images to share as well! The popular modern day origin story of Norman Bates has been a smashing success. Most likely due to the amazing performances of “mother and son” duo Vera Farmiga (‘The Conjuring‘,’Orphan’) and Freddie Highmore (‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’,’The Spiderwick Chronicles’) who have exemplified the creep factor of this twisted family quite perfectly.

The show returns on March 3rd, 2014, and will be including a slew of new faces such as: Paloma Kwiatkowski (‘Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters’, ‘Whatever It Takes’) who is going to be another potential love interest for the son who loves his mother more than anyone else. Michael Vartan (‘Alias’, ‘One Hour Photo’) as a love interest for Norma (another future victem of Norman’s?), Michael Eklund (‘The Call’, ‘Watchmen’) who will be involved in the drug business, Rebecca Creskoff (‘Hung’, ‘Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles’) as the first friend Norma will seem to have on the show and finally Kenny Johnson (‘Sons Of Anarchy’, ”Dexter’) who will be playing Norma’s brother.

Bates Motel: Season 2 premiere date revealed

 

The premiere date for “Bates Motel”Season 2 has finally been revealed. Coming in at around the same time Season 1 premiered in 2012, the A&E series will return on March 3.

There have been plenty of promotional images and teasers released for the second season of “Bates Motel.” The new season will deal with the death of Miss Watson and also the introduction of Norma’s brother, Carlton (Kenny Johnson).

When Zap2it spoke to Nestor Carbonell, he teased that Season 2 will resolve some of Season 1′s cliffhangers fairly quickly. “One of the great things about this show is, even with cliffhangers, they’re pretty much dealt with head-on, so the payoff is always going to be there,” he says. “We definitely tackle [Miss Watson's death] pretty quickly in Season 2 and the ramifications of what happened with the teacher at the end of Season 1. Not that it’s all wrapped up in a neat bow, but it’s definitely being dealt with for sure.”

Season 1 of “Bates Motel” was one of the best new shows of 2012, so the upcoming Season 2 is something people should either be counting down the days to, or catching up on what they’ve missed to get excited.
