Another gallery update: There are screen caps for all of Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day along with a few from the DVD extras (Lee isn’t in it much). Many thanks to Crystal for taking the time to cap the film for LPO!
I’ve done an exhaustive amount of additions in the gallery, including film stills (many of which are HQ) to the following: Ceremony, The Fall, Infamous, Marmaduke, Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day, Possession, The Resident, and The White Countess. In coming days, I’ll be adding screen caps for at least Miss Pettigrew and Soldier’s Girl, including the DVD extras.
Less exhaustive, but I’ve also updated the public appearances galleries. Included in this update are the following: ‘Promises, Promises’ Opening Night (04/25/10) featuring Kristin Chenoweth and the Pushing Daisies cast/crew, ‘Red’ Opening Night (04/01/10), and his appearance at a Parisian Calvin Klein Party (07/06/09) with 30 Beats costar Vahina Giocante.
Along with the aforementioned screen caps to be added, I also hope to have photo shoots and photos from his theatrical performances uploaded soon. Sit tight!
Good news, fans eager to see Lee Pace in a new project: Ceremony – produced by NALA Films – only premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival a month ago, but it has already found a U.S. distributor. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Magnolia Pictures has picked up distribution rights to writer-director Max Winkler’s debut film.
Magnolia’s recent releases include I Am Love, Ondine, and the controversial Casey Affleck-directed film I’m Still Here, starring Joaquin Phoenix. Additionally, in November, the company will also release Client 9: The Rise And Fall Of Eliot Spitzer and All Good Things.
There is still no determined release date for Ceremony.
From November 3-10, the American Film Market (AFM) will host its 31st annual marketing event in Santa Monica, California. Here, The Resident – staring Lee along with Hilary Swank, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Sir Christopher Lee – will make its market premiere! It is not currently known whether or not Lee is expected to make an appearance.
For eight days, many screenings, seminars, red carpet premiers, networking, and parties will be held at the AFM while deals are made to distribute and even produce films. Various types of industry professionals – from acquisition and development executives to film festival directors – are to be in attendance. There are to be 409 films screened; of those few hundred, 49 will be world premieres while 287 will be market premieres. In this must-attend industry event, representatives from 70-plus countries will have the option to close production and distribution deals, with more than $800 million in deals sealed by the end of the eight days.
The rumors had been floating around since late July, but Summit Entertainment officially announced the news today: Lee Pace will star in Twilight: Breaking Dawn as Garrett, one of the American Nomads. His fellow nomads include Toni Trucks (Mary), Bill Tangradi (Randall), Erik Odom (Peter), and Valorie Curry (Charlotte).
THE AMERICAN NOMADS
Turned during the Revolutionary War, Garrett has chosen to live a nomadic existence, wandering the world on his own. Garrett has never lost the rebellious spirit of his human life, and loves a good fight, always rooting for the underdog. Though not a vegetarian, Garrett is among Carlisle’s closest and oldest friends.
Mary and Randall are American nomadic vampires.
Peter and Charlotte are nomadic vampires and mates. They were created during the aftermath of the Southern Vampire Wars, in which Jasper was a key player. They have remained friends with Jasper ever since.
Bill Condon (Kinsey, Dreamgirls) will direct both parts of the film, while Melissa Rosenberg will again write the screen adaptation of Stephanie Meyer’s popular franchise. Along with Wyck Godfrey and Karen Rosenfelt, Meyer will also be producing the films. This next and final chapter of The Twilight Saga will be released in two parts, with the first tentatively scheduled to hit theaters November 18, 2011 and the second following a year later on November 16, 2012.
Waiting For Superman is a documentary on the crumbling American school system and how the youth are being affected by it. Filmmaker Davis Guggenheim “follows a handful of promising kids through a system that inhibits, rather than encourages, academic growth.” Below is a clip of various celebrities – Jon Hamm, James McAvoy, among others – talking about their appreciation of education and, specifically, teachers who helped shape their lives. Lee shows up for a brief moment near the end to thank his own mother, Charlotte Pace.
Say goodbye to the standard template and hello to a gorgeous new layout, with many thanks to Tran at Transfixx Productions! I couldn’t believe how quickly the entire site was finished – less than one day – and am deeply impressed by how smoothly everything runs together. I’ll be doing some further edits on content in the upcoming days but, in the meantime, feel free to ooh and ahh over LeePace.net’s facelift. (And, of course, if you’re looking for someone to design your site, I highly recommend Transfixx.)
Worldview Entertainment, “a New York City-based motion picture investment and production company,” has debuted a poster for Lee’s upcoming film, 30 Beats. Although there is no additional information provided on the website, the poster may provide brief hints of the plot due to the various pictures forming the hearts. Take a look at revealed poster above (and click for the larger size).
What could make the Pushing Daisies comic whimsical? How about a soundtrack! Michael Ausiello posted some new information about the upcoming Pushing Daisies comics in his September 23rd edition of Ask Ausiello. According to Bryan Fuller, licensing fees for the songs still need to be worked out, but he and others working on the project are aiming for a multimedia experience. Below is the direct quote from Fuller:
“Issue number 1 will hopefully be out in early 2011, issue number 2 is being colored as we speak, and issue number 3 is being written. Our Emmy-award-winning composer Jim Dooley and I have been talking about giving the audience a multimedia experience with the comic—specifically a score. We have no idea whether we can actually afford to do an actual Pushing Daisies comic soundtrack (because the cast has agreed to sing songs and those licensing fees are expensive), but Jim has already started composing musical cues that we will either release officially or stream for freesies online when the comic book is published. I’ve already heard the track for Lee Pace’s cover ditty and it’s fantastic.”
We’ve heard Lee sing in Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day and Soldier’s Girl, and it looks like there may be another opportunity forthcoming. Any guesses on what Ned may be singing?
