misc. upcomings and goings  
Jeff Wells recently posted about Liberal Arts wondering why there hasn't been any publicity or website given it is coming out in two months and suggested the distributor, IFC, wasn't that keen on it.

IFC responded with:
Update: IFC Films bigwig Ryan Werner says "everything is coming momentarily on Liberal Arts. We've been working with Josh this summer on the materials, etc. And we just did a NYC screening and party at BAM Cinemafest and the film played huge. We remain super enthusiastic."

So that's good news. I can't wait :)

In less positive news, I'm a little concerned about This is Where I Leave You. Last we saw, Adam was scouting locations a month ago. In the meantime though, Rock of Ages underwhelmed both financially and critically. And Jason Bateman tweeted on July 10th that filming of Arrested Development "starts in four weeks" which to me indicates he'll be busy filming that in the fall, overlapping the intended filming period for TIWILY. Further Adam has said nothing and responds to no questions about the project, which is unusual for him, and I haven't seen any production info popping up on any of the databases. So it seems like something fell apart somewhere along the way. I have mixed feelings if this did happen. My main reservation has always been Adam. I love Adam for Hairspray and supporting Zac but his track record otherwise as a director is pretty dim. Otherwise though, I liked the cast, the book, and Zac's character. I liked that it was comedy more than romance for him. And Zac could definitely use a studio project. I guess hopefully it was just pushed back a bit. But I really can't wait for Zac to get back to real work, not just promo. So whatever is happening, I hope he gets back on set soon.

In better news, we should hear next week if At Any Price made it into Venice and TIFF. Fingers crossed. I'm also curious if The Paperboy might screen at TIFF. As a side note, in the upcoming weeks, Liberal Arts will screen at the Traverse City Film Festival, the Melbourne International Film Festival and the New Zealand 2012 International Film Festival.

On a side note...
Last night I was really pissed Zac Efron was cheating on me in my dreams, but this morning when I realized that meant that I was bonking Zac Efron, I was perfectly okay with it.

Oddly, even with my long interest and daily attention to The Zefron, he has never appeared in my dreams. I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing.

Re: On a side note...
It's normal not to see the dreams of the idol. I am personally familiar with one well-known Canadian singer. Many times, saw him, interviewed, doing publicity for him... 3 years completely devoted to him, and his promotion in Russia and Ukraine. But I only saw him two times in a dream. But my mom to see him in a dream very often. :)))
