A quick reminder that tonight here in the US, ACCESS HOLLYWOOD will be the site where viewers in the US can see the trailer to David Mackenzie's "Spread," starring Ashton Kutcher and Anne Heche. Then as I first reported last night, the trailer will be online in glorious high quality via APPLE on Thursday. Woot!
Also, Edinburgh Guide is reporting that David was unable to attend the screening of "Spread" at the Edinburgh Film Festival, sending a note saying he was busy with all the prep work for "The Last Word." As reported here several times, this is a new SIGMA FILMS production with David reuniting again with Ewan McGregor; production is due to start in just a few months and there is much to be done before the late August/September production based out of Film City Glasgow.
More good words on Spread at Edinburgh continue, as seen in this review from The Herald, notably:
With its impossibly attractive cast, Spread might have been as shiny and insubstantial as Nikki is when we first meet him. Thanks to a whip-smart script that's full of witty one-liners and really has a feel for its millieu, it's anything but. In the hands of Scottish director David Mackenzie, the film comes across as effortlessly cool and stylish while maintaining real edge. Mackenzie, who's shown a predisposition for raunchy dramas ever since making Young Adam, seems the perfect fit. All that and a killer ending, too.
FINALLY, a word of thanks to a long time reader who sent the most fabulous mail encouraging me to keep on with this blog. Ive not hidden how discouraged I am of late, but was heartened to have received such encouraging thoughts expressed in such a lovely fashion -thank you so so much! Its really really hard to get info out of Glasgow, can only imagine the frustration of the filmmakers there because they get scant attention as it is! Anyway, thanks again! xxxxxxxxxx
