John Carpenter 's The Ward - FILMING


É cara, o mestre começou a filmar THE WARD dia 02/08, ou seja, o cara começou semana passada. O velho pra o seu regresso, nós tras um filme de puro terror, deixando os outros gêneros de lado, parece um ótimo primeiro passo para a sua tão esperada volta aos cinemas. Segundo passo, o carpinteiro me chama Amber Heard para ser a protagonista do filme (depois disso cada vez mais tenho vontade de dar sapecadas nela, foto) e Danielle Panabaker, que é gostosinha tbm.


Aqui postei uns comentarios feitos pelo pessoal envolvido na produção, e o mais importante dele é o primeiro.


“The Ward” is the kind of script that I’ve been looking for: a complex, visceral story, full of suspense and scares,” said Carpenter. “I am especially pleased to be working with Amber because I know she will create a powerful central performance.

“The Ward” is being produced by Doug Mankoff, Mike Marcus and Andy Spaulding of Echo Lake Entertainment, which recently wrapped production on “The Joneses”, co-starring Heard. Financing and producing alongside Echo Lake will be Peter Block and his recently launched company A Bigger Boat.

Working with John Carpenter on “The Ward” is a dream come true; fans everywhere, me included, have been waiting for just this kind of thriller from him. It’s great to be able to tackle it with the Echo Lake gang whose work I’ve also admired for years,” said Block.

Heard is repped by Endeavor, Hyler Management and attorney Karl Austen. Her credits include “Pineapple Express,” “Never Back Down,” and “All The Boys Love Mandy Lane” as well as the series “Californication”. Carpenter is repped by William Morris and Echo Lake Management. Writers Michael and Shawn Rasmussen are repped by Larchmont Literary Agency.

Echo Lake has added more commercial fare such as “The Ward” and “The Joneses” to its long track record of award winning arthouse films including titles like “Tsotsi”, “Water”, and “Away From Her”. “We are excited to bring our focus on quality to bigger, more mainstream films” says Doug Mankoff, President of Echo Lake. “We saw firsthand what a great job Amber did on “The Joneses” and we knew that she and John Carpenter would make a perfect combination for “The Ward”."

Joaquim Pedro de Andrade / O Padre e a Moça



























Um filme de poucas palavras, mas que bem poderia não tê-las. A única fala que realmente importa é o voice-over da moça (Helena Ignez) enquanto o padre (Paulo José) pensantivo, atordoado e sem direção pelo que acabou de fazer, caminha pelas partes planas das serras de minas gerais.
