Fallen Vampire Diaries Crew Member Vindicated! Midnight Rider Filmmakers Charged For Her Death!

Filed under: Legal MattersR.I.P.Sad Sad

midnight rider death filmmaker charged involuntary manslaughter

She is sorely missed, especially by those who loved her most and the family she left behind while working on Vampire Diaries.

We reported earlier how tragedy struck the set of Midnight Rider when 27-year-old camera assistant Sarah Elizabeth Jones was killed on a train trestle during filming after being struck by a freight train.

Just so sad!

Now, the filmmakers of this Greg Allman biopic, Randall Miller, Jody Savin, and Jay Sedrish, have been charged with involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespass.

If convicted they could face a sentence of 10 years in prison for manslaughter, and a year in prison potentially for criminal trespassing!

Randall was the director on the project, Jody, his wife, produced it, and Jay was an executive producer.

We'll see how this case develops after this recent indictment!

Opinionated documentary creator Michael Moore got SUPER DUPER pissed when he found out that his friend — the Oscar nominated Palestinan filmmaker Emad Burnat — had been DETAINED by LAX immigration because they did not believe he was actually in town for the Oscars!!

Emad, his wife, and their 8-year-old son were held at LAX for over an hour before FINALLY getting "permission" to stay in the country until the Oscars were over.

Yeesh.

Michael Moore tweeted EVERYTHING about the incident (his version of events), which we've collected for your reading convenience!!

Lana Wachowski Hopes Cloud Atlas Will Help The World Accept The Transgender Community

Lana Wachowski, one-third of the directing trio behind Cloud Atlas, gave a powerful speech about her transgender experience recently, but the famously shy filmmaker isn't done talking about the issue.

In fact, anybody seeing her newest movie should keep it in mind.

While Lana and her brother, Andy, normally avoid the press at all costs, she wasn't shy about comparing the characters in the $100 million indie to herself.

In a recent interview, she referenced a character named Sonmi who instigates a revolution and said:

No Dark Knight Rises Director's Cut Will Ever Be Released

Filed under: Film Flickers

Remember when we told you about that that sweet Dark Knight Rises scene explaining Bane's backstory that costume designer Lindy Hemming says was cut out of the film?

We're never EVER going to see it!

Fans of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy were sincerely hoping for an extended director's cut edition when the blockbuster was released on DVD, but the filmmaker's reps have confirmed there are no such plans.

It doesn't sound like there will be any deleted scenes either, as Nolan has said in the past:

AMAZING!

Tom Ford has teamed up with Brett Ratner and GLSEN to judge a contest of anti-bullying PSA's.

He's asking all aspiring filmmakers to submit their own Think Before You Speak video for a chance to win a trip to El Lay!

The winner will attend the annual GLSEN Respect Awards where their PSA will be screened and honored in front of top notch filmmakers. Brett will also give the winning PSA exposure through his social media outlets.

Tom says of the project:

“I am delighted to be working with GLSEN on this important and timely campaign to emphasize how powerful words can be and how crucial it is to think before you speak. I am excited to see the submissions from aspiring filmmakers around the world and look forward to picking the most compelling ones. This campaign creates a tremendous opportunity to help us all raise awareness of this issue.”

Very well said, Mr. Ford.
