Toni Collette’s Vocab Films and Radical Media are partnering to bring Julia Dahl’s novel Invisible City into series form with Collette having already written the pilot script. The actress optioned the book which is a psychological murder mystery set in Brooklyn’s old world Hasidic community. Invisible City is the first of Dahls’ many novels and follows an aspiring journalist, Rebekah, who is searching for her Jewish mother who had abandoned her and her Christian father to return to her religion. The journalist is asked to cover a story of a murdered Hasidic woman and that’s when she is immersed in this cloistered world where her mother grew up. The book has won numerous awards and, in 2014, The Boston Globe named it as one of the best of the year. Collette will serve as executive producer along with Jen Turner. Jon Kamen, Jon Doran, and Justin Wilkes serve as executive producers for Radical Media. “I love Julia Dahl’s novel because it’s about fighting for personal freedom and living an authentic life. It couldn’t be a more relevant time to tell this story about acceptance and integration, or lack thereof. These complex female characters are honest, flawed and inspiring. We can always use more of those,” Collette said in a statement. Deadline broke the news exclusively.

Channel 7 has released a first teaser for their upcoming miniseries “Blue Murder: Killer Cop”. “I kow more about criminals and how to catch them than any 10 other blokes in the country. Makes you wonder how I got here?” Richard Roxburgh, as crooked cop Roger Rogerson, asks this of the audience, in the first trailer released by Seven of its hotly-anticipated telemovie, Blue Murder: Killer Cop. It’s a bloody good question and has all the makings of the must watch true crime drama of the year — an unexpected but utterly compelling sequel to the original miniseries, which introduced the talents of Roxburgh to local audiences and will remind a new generation of the shocking past of one of Australia’s dodgiest detectives. Rogerson’s 2016 conviction on murder and commercial drug supply charges provided a stunning twist to this infamous crime tale, which finally brought down the former NSW detective after the 75-year-old and his accomplice, Glenn McNamara, 57, were found guilty of the murder of Jamie Gao during a drug deal gone wrong. After the duo’s arrest, producers of the first Blue Murder series immediately got to work on a sequel, which now looks to be fast-tracked to air by Channel 7 and co-stars Toni Collette, Love Child’s Andy Ryan and Hyde and Seek star, Matt Nable.

Momentum Pictures has launched the official theatrical trailer for “Fun Mom Dinner”, which will release US theaters and on-demand platforms on August 4, 2017. Four moms, whose only common ground is their kids’ preschool class, decide to get together for a harmless “fun mom dinner.” The night begins as a disaster, but the combination of alcohol, karaoke, and a cute bartender, leads to an unforgettable night where these seemingly different women realize they have more in common than motherhood and men. Additionally, they have posted an on-set interview with Toni Collette and Katie Aselton, which can be found in the video archive. Screencaptures from both the interview and the trailer have been added to the photo gallery.

Entertainment Tonight has exclusively launched the poster for “Fun Mom Dinner”, which will be released in select theaters and on demand on August 4. ET also has an interview with its writer, Julie Rudd. You’ve met the mom that isn’t like a regular mom, she’s a cool mom. You’ve met the self-proclaimed bad moms. Now it’s time to meet the fun moms of Fun Mom Dinner. To celebrate the unveiling of the movie’s poster, debuting on ET, screenwriter Julie Rudd (yes, her husband is Paul Rudd) phoned ET to introduce us to her mom crew, played by Katie Aselton, Molly Shannon, Toni Collette and Bridget Everett. Here’s what she said about casting Toni Collette:

She’s incredible! I’ve always admired her from afar and think she’s an incredible actress. The fact that she’s in the movie still blows my mind a little bit. When the idea of Toni playing this part was brought up, obviously I thought it was an incredible idea, but I didn’t really understand until she came to set and started inhabiting this part how much she was going to bring to it. She’s got like an inherent toughness, but I don’t want to be misquoted about that! I mean that in the best way! In that way that, when she is around, you just so want her to like you. You so want her to be your friend. She is as cool as can be and she is not trying at all. And so she brought so much more to Kate, because she is the toughest of the four and resistant to being with all these moms and having mom friends. And Toni made Kate so much better than anything I ever could have imagined.

Last week, “XXX: The Return of Xander Cage Blu-Ray” has been released in the United States on demand, DVD, Blu-Ray. It’s not your typical Toni movie, but since there are no typical Toni movies anyway it has been fun to see her doing some popcorn action gun-wielding (that was a spoiler) flick opposite Vin Diesel and a bunch of performances straight out of a video game. Screencaptures from the Blu-Ray as well as from the making of featurette have been added to the photo gallery.

Yet another new project for Toni on the horizon which, once again, sounds very intriguing. According to Deadline, Toni Collette has just optioned the novel and screenplay The Best of Adam Sharp from red hot author Graeme Simsion who also penned The Rosie Project set up over at Tri-Star. Adam Sharp, which is kind of a High Fidelity for 40-somethings, is one of the first that Collette has brought to her newly formed production company Vocab Films. Her producing partner is Jen Turner. The Best of Adam Sharp (published via St. Martin’s Press) is about a man (Adam) on the cusp of fifty who is restless as his marriage has gone stale. He can’t quite forget a romance he had twenty years ago with an intelligent and strong-willed woman named Angelina Brown who taught him what it meant to find—and then lose—love. He wonders how different would his life be if he hadn’t let her go. Out of the blue, he gets a one word email from Angelina. He responds and his life takes a significant turn. Collette will play the lead female role, Angelina.
