Wow, that I call a fast movie. The Toronto International Film Festival announced additions to their Galas and Special Presentations programs, and among them is “Lucky Them”, a film that was shot this January. “Lucky Them” tells the story of Ellie Klug (Toni Collette), a rock journalist who is tasked with the painful assignment of exploring her own past. Joined by eccentric would-be documentarian Charlie (Thomas Haden Church), Ellie sets out on an emotional treasure hunt in order to finally rid herself of her “ghosts” and get on with her life. Toni’s other film at TIFF will be “Enough Said”. The full schedule will be announced on August 20. Three pictures from the film have been added to the gallery.
The theatrical trailer for “Enough Said”, starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, James Gandolfini, Catherine Keener, Ben Falcone and Toni Collette, has been launched by 20th Century Fox. The romantic comedy, which is unfortunately one of Mr. Gandolfini’s last films, will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival next month. You can watch the trailer in the video archive.
The film centers on a divorced, single mother and masseuse Eva (Louis-Dreyfus) who starts up a romance with Albert (Gandolfini). Things get complicated when Eva realizes Albert is the ex of her new client (played by Holofcener muse Catherine Keener), who plies Eva with all the nitpicky and more substantial problems she and Albert had during their marriage. Look out for this spot-on quote: Getting an ex-wife to spill the beans on one’s new boyfriend is “like a human Trip Advisor.” HD screencaptures from the trailer can be found in the gallery.
These last two days, Toni Collette has been in attendance at the CBS Summer TCA, promoting the upcoming series “Hostages”. Pictures from the shows’ panel and the CBS party have been added to the gallery. Additional coverage on the TCA can be found below the previews.
The following coverage has been posted by the Hollywood Reporter: Hostages, a drama led by Dylan McDermott and Toni Collette about surgeon Ellen Sanders who is forced to decide whether to kill the president or have her family killed, is hoping to take network television to a different level. The show is “a chance to do something new on network television,” executive producer Jeffrey Nachmanoff told reporters gathered Monday at the Television Critics Association press tour. The 15-episode order differentiates itself from the traditional series, which often sees 22 (or more) episodes, and follows the successes of similarly-modeled CBS’ Under the Dome and Fox’s The Following. But don’t call Hostages a miniseries. Executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer, as well as the other producers, have high hopes Hostages can sustain its story beyond a first season. “This is not a miniseries for us,” Bruckheimer said, adding that he hopes to get two seasons or more.

|James Gandolfini’s legacy lives on. On Thursday, July 25 — a little over a month after the star’s sudden death of a heart attack at the age of 51 — Fox Searchlight Pictures revealed a release date and movie poster for Enough Said, the second-to-last film Gandolfini shot before his untimely passing. Set to open in select theaters on Sept. 20, 2013, the movie finds the late Sopranos actor playing a love interest for Seinfeld alum Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Catherine Keener, Toni Collette, and Ben Falcone also star.|
“He played a divorced dad who doted on his daughter and was crazy about Julia’s character,” writer/director Nicole Holofcener told the Hollywood Reporter after Gandolfini’s death on June 19. “He didn’t believe he could play a romantic lead, even though everyone on the set thought he was sexy and hilarious. He was charming and self-effacing and incredibly talented. Not only did he pull off playing a leading man, his performance is subtle and moving and very, very lovely.”
Indeed, costar Collette told Cinema Blend recently that the actor’s work in Enough Said may be his most revealing ever. “I’m so excited for his fans to be able to see him in Enough Said, because he’s a total teddy bear in it. He’s the leading man,” she gushed. “He’s sought after, loved, talked about, and I just feel so lucky to have gotten to work with him.” “He was the real deal,” she continued. “He actually had a twinkle in his eye. He was cheeky and wonderful. I can’t believe how young [he was]. I mean, 51? It’s just too sad.” Enough Said will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September. Prior to his death, Gandolfini also filmed the movie Animal Rescue. No release date has been set for that project.
