Lorax/Paperboy/TLO Roundup  
Lorax Posters, click for sources/bigger versions…

~from jacksonrathbone~

Lorax Music, from THR via MTV:
Christopher “Tricky” Stewart, who is best known as the producer behind such hits as Beyonce’s “Single Ladies,” Rihanna’s “Umbrella” and Justin Bieber’s “Baby,” has signed on as executive song producer for the forthcoming animated movie Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax. It’s his second foray into film. Last year, he served as executive music consultant on Burlesque…

Stewart has co-written the movie’s single with composer John Powell, screenwriter Cinco Paul as well as Ester Dean, who appears on Nicki Minaj’s “Superbass.”

“I'm a big kid and I have a 15-month-old daughter so I'm constantly listening to sounds at home and watching what intrigues a child mentally or visually,” Stewart tells The Hollywood Reporter. “And I love Dr. Seuss. That hat had mad swag.”

Paperboy, from CriticizeThis:
D Films appears to be filling the void left by the Alliance acquisition of Maple Pictures and is quickly becoming the “litte Canadian distributor that could."

…And just today they have announced they got the exclusive Canadian rights to Lee Daniels’ follow-up to Precious, The Paperboy, a thriller

TLO, from TLO FB, head there to ask Zac your questions:

Also, Taylor tells MTV that a day at work kissing Zac is hardly a chore (not surprising)...
MTV: First up for you this year is "The Lucky One," co-starring Zac Efron. Let's cut to the obvious question: Is kissing Zac as amazing as one might imagine?

Schilling: Oh my gosh. I'm not going to let you down. It's not a bad way to make a paycheck.

MTV: My favorite Nicholas Sparks movie motif is the rain-drenched makeout scene. From the trailer, it appears you and Zac share a steamy smooch under a showerhead, which is a bit of a twist. What I'm wondering, technically speaking, is if there's any special choreography to ensure you don't drown with all that water falling on you?

Schilling: [Laughs] No, there didn't seem to be a problem.

LOL there, I think I'm caught up mostly. I've got some big projects going on right now irl. I'm trying to retwitter things as we go but some are just not that new/central to Zac and a lot of these smaller, more tangential things will be kept for roundups, jsyk. I am very excited to hear more about Liberal Arts out of Sundance which starts soon.

I'm curious what else the Lorax promo brings. It's great so far.

The Lorax promotion seems to be going well. I'm glad that something is happening in terms of The Paperboy finding a distributor even if it doesn't have a distributor for the US, yet.

Well, for some of us, Canada is only a few hundred miles. If it comes to it, we can make a group grope out of it, everyone rally in Detroit and then caravan over to Windsor.

I hope Zac records a song for The Lorax soundtrack.

Gonna have to agree with the first person. That's probably not gonna happen.

It would be great to have a Zac/Taylor duet. But yeah, it's never gonna happen.

Watching American Idol, and there was just a commercial for The Lorax. Yay!

Semi-on topic, but the first time I heard this Coldplay song I immediately wanted it featured in The Lorax. It just seemed like a family/child-friendly movie would have it in their commercials or something, lol.

AND I hope Piper Picks goes to the LA premiere and gives Zac some of her silly bandz (people seem to get a kick out of it when she gifts those to them)!
