|Flea from The Red Hot Chili Peppers as Charlie in Pretty face|
I noticed on their website two familiar names starring in the movie-Val Kilmer and Lea Thompson.
The site is not 100% finished. Yet there is a trailer and shots of premier posters.
In the summer of 1969, Jenna, a rebellious fifteen-year old girl, abandoned by her deadbeat single mom, steals a horse from her best friend's family and runs away from their loving arms.
Her naive and very square best friend follows her on another horse and the two girls stumble across the Manson family living in an abandoned movie ranch.
Jenna, a street-smart budding singer-songwriter, is not fooled by their talk of peace, love and living free, but her sweet and innocent friend is gradually seduced by their siren call. The situation gets dangerous, but Jenna stands her ground against the infamous Charlie, Bobby and Tex and is forced to make a great and heroic personal sacrifice to save her friend from a horrific night with the wanton members of "the family."
Pretty face lives halfway between fact and fiction, blending factual details about the day-to-day existence of the Manson family in the weeks leading up to the infamous murders with the fictional coming of age story of a damaged, crass, but ultimately loving, teenage heroine.
Writer and Director-Jessica Jano
Producer- Fred Roos
EYES OF A DREAMER
|Lindsay Lohan rumored to play Sharon Tate|
|Tyler Shields is producing as well as playing Charlie|
|Marilyn Manson t/n Brian Warner is rumored to be playing Tex|
Tyler Shields is producing as well as starring as Charlie. I think he wrote it as well. Shields is a celebrity photographer and a good friend of Lindsay Lohan. According to gossip, shooting will start July 15, 2010.
But- Linsay Lohan has court at the end of this month. There is the potential she might have to serve some prison time for her habitual kleptomania. If that happens, she will be replaced. Marilyn Manson is rumored to be playing Tex.
THE MANSON GIRLS
Quote from Susanna Lo
"I decided I wanted to tell the story of eight of the girls, from their teenage years through to the minute before the Tate/LaBianca murders. Manson Girls is a movie about how neglect, rejection and abuse can transcend into hopelessness, despondence and ultimately, violence. Just to be clear, this is not a story about Charles Manson. It is the story of eight of the girls, told from their prospective, before the Tate/LaBianca murders take place. And I never show Charlie Manson's face in the film."
Update on Manson Girls- I spoke to Susanna again a few days ago. They are currently shooting in L.A. and Puerto Rico. I mentioned some rumors going around that her movie would not be made. She assured me it is being made as we speak.
|Scott Kosar to write and direct "The Family."|
|Ryan Kwanten as Charlie|
(yummy! works for Patty and I.)
He continued: "it is not a horror film, though the subject is inherently horrific. The goal is to do, finally,after forty years, the first authentic film about the so-called Manson Family. Unlike other films on the subject, 'The Family' will also spend time getting to know the victims, particularly Sharon Tate, who will be portrayed very sympathetically. This won't be a slasher film, but it won't gloss over the violence either. My film will concern the family itself. Who they were and what their lives were like with Manson."
