TLO Updates - Music and Marines

Adelaide Now has a story about how local band Mayfield will be appearing in The Lucky One (and how they got the job):
The three-piece band will star as themselves in the latest Nicholas Sparks film adaptation, The Lucky One, and bassist Jett, the son of director Scott Hicks, says his father has some advice.

"Shut up and listen to the director," Jett says with a laugh...

The band features as one of the acts who entertain the troops. After an arduous year touring around Europe, Jett says the boys - which includes Ziggy West on guitar and Sam Knight on drums - are excited to be taking on another medium.

According to the article they left today for New Orleans.

This guy, Robert Hayes, has been twittering non-stop (tbh maybe too much? I hope he doesn't get in trouble) about working on The Lucky One with Zac. He says he is playing Victor, Logan's best friend.

Apparently they have been rehearsing and Collapse )

Black List Mentions of Zac-related projects

Easy Money (Snabba Cash remake) had 7 votes and Die in a Gunfight had 18.

And it gave us a new logline for Easy Money: “Based on the film Snabba Cash, a business school student with substantial ambition works in strategy for a New York City criminal enterprise.

The Black List, in a lot of ways, is more about how many people see the scripts and like them before voting rather than a list based on everyone reading the same thing and voting on quality. So basically scripts that are most widely circulated do tend to get more votes... which may explain why Easy Money has only 7 votes but should be a really good script (given the source and scriptwriter).

Other projects we think might be interesting for Zac: All You Need is Kill, 999, Your Bridesmaid is a Bitch, Get a Job and The 13th Man.

Zac and Vanessa split up

From ENews:
Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are over.

Sources just told me…

The two, who started dating when they were just teenagers costarring in the hit High School Musical franchise, recently called it quits.

"It's nothing dramatic," one source said. "There's no third party involved."

Says another source, "They were together for so long. It just ran its course."

Sources insist they remain friends.

I'm turning comments off for this for a few reasons.

Clearly this isn't a happy thing for Zac or Vanessa. And since I am still in the middle of writing a paper for tomorrow, honestly, I just can't moderate where this might go.

I will say, in general, this is never an easy thing to go through with someone you care about so much, so please be respectful of that across fandom.
