Recently, our own cinema bon vivant, Jeremiah Wierenga, spent a few hours on the set of the movie Buhl, Idaho, which is being filmed In the little town from whence it takes its name. We'll have more on that in this week's issue of Boise Weekly.
The movie brings with it some big names, including producer Heather Rae, who Variety reported will be a juror in the 19th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards, which are happening tonight in New York City.
Rae and actors William H. Macy and Rosie Perez, director Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace), cinematographer Matthew Libatique and editor Christopher Tellefsen will judge the category of Best Breakthrough Director.
Up for the award of Best Breakthrough Director are Cruz Angeles for Don't Let Me Down, Frazer Bradshaw for Everything Strange and New, Derick Martini for Lymelife (which stars Alec Baldwin) and Robert Siegel (who wrote the screenplay for The Wrestler) for Big Fan, which is also up for Best Feature and Best Breakthrough Actor, (Patton Oswalt).
Other jurors include directors William Friedkin (The Exorcist) and David O. Russell (I Heart Huckabees), composer Stewart Copeland, actors Ellen Burstyn and Oliver Platt and more.
