Cs Movie: How Starred Up Is Being Ascended With By Jack O'connell Is Star

David Mackenzie David Mackenzie could be one of England's more prolific filmmakers, maybe just behind Michael Winterbottom, but one thing you can say about the choices he makes in terms of the films he directs, he has never made the same movie twice. Whether it's the controversial Young Adam, the period thriller Asylum, the Ashton Kutcher drama Spread or the science fiction tinged Perfect Sense, each movie has been different than the one before. http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=121811

Stephen Gaghan to Direct White City Pilot for AMC

"White City" is an adventure story set in the somewhat surreal ex-pat world of near-present Afghanistan, one of the most discussed and least understood places on earth. The show focuses on Jon Liston, a war junkie who has spent the better part of the last decade in Kabul with a front-row seat to the carnage. In the pilot, against the advice of everyone from American embassy staffers to tweeting tribal leaders to the French journalist he's in a relationship with, Jon tragically overreaches in an attempt to talk with insurgent leaders. In the series, Jon must find a new role in Kabul as he attempts to address his guilt, frustration and doubts about whether there is good left for him or any Westerner to do in Afghanistan. The project comes from co-writers and co-executive producers Nick McDonell, a novelist ("Twelve," "An Expensive Education") and journalist who has covered Iraq and Afghanistan for TIME, and John Dempsey, former long-time resident of Kabul and senior advisor on Afghanistan to the late US diplomat, Richard C. http://www.comingsoon.net/news/tvnews.php?id=122189
