ARC Entertainment plans to bring some life-affirming drama into moviegoers’ lives, having now acquired all North American rights to Andrew Levitas’ feel-good film “Lullaby,” featuring an acclaimed cast that includes Garrett Hedlund, Richard Jenkins, Amy Adams, Jessica Brown Findlay, Terrence Howard and Jennifer Hudson.
“Lullaby” explores the power of life, its transformative moments and reconnections between loved ones. Estranged from his family, Jonathan (Hedlund) discovers his father’s decision to take himself off life support in forty-eight hours. What follows is an unexpected and powerful journey of love, laughter and forgiveness.
“We are proud to release this highly-anticipated thought provoking masterpiece,” stated ARC Entertainment’s CEO Trevor Drinkwater. “Featuring a powerful all-star cast of Academy Award winners and nominees, ‘Lullaby’ is a unique film that will be enjoyed by all generations and is sure to bring you and your family closer together.” [Indiewire]

The Hollywood Reporter has some news regarding the future of Philip Seymor Hoffman’s projects, including Ezekiel Moss (which you know, was announced on Friday Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams had signed to star).
Exclusive Media had come aboard to handle international rights to the Prohibition-era film, and was planning to launch the project to foreign buyers at Berlin’s upcoming European Film Market. On Sunday, Exclusive announced it would not be bringing the project to Berlin, and producers would be re-grouping to explore the next steps for the film in light of Hoffman’s death.
“Exclusive Media is deeply saddened to learn the shocking news of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s passing,” said a statement. “He was a truly gifted actor and director who not only inspired his fellow colleagues, but audiences around the world and he will be greatly missed. We give our sincere condolences to his family and friends during this difficult time.”
From a Black List script by Keith Bunin, Ezekiel Moss follows a widow named Iris (Adams) who runs a boarding house to get by and provide for her spirited son, Joel. They reside in a small town overrun by religious fervor, and their lives are forever changed when she begins to fall in love with Ezekiel Moss (Gyllenhaal), a mysterious drifter who has the divine ability to channel and physically inhabit the spirits of the dead.
We just learned today that Philip Seymour Hoffman has been found dead at his apartment in New York City. For me, as a fan, this is devastating, but for the whole film industry, it’s a tragedy. Philip was one of the best of his generation, four time Oscar nominee (one win!) with some amazing roles under his extensive career.
Philip and Amy worked together three times, in Charles Wilson’s War, Doubt and The Master. It was just announced that they was going to work together again, in Ezekiel Moss.
My wish was to write a very good article in his honor, but I’m still speechless. Hope you’ve found your peace, Philip!
