April, 29 2018        Posted By Veronique        Comments Off on TriStar Acquires Rights to ‘Happiest Season’ From Clea DuVall and Mary Holland

TriStar Pictures has acquired worldwide rights to “Happiest Season” from writing duo Clea DuVall and Mary Holland, with DuVall on board to direct.

For DuVall, the pic will mark her first directing job at the studio level. Marty Bowen and Isaac Klausner will produce with Jaclyn Huntling overseeing for Temple Hill.

“Mary and I are beyond thrilled to be working with TriStar and Temple Hill,” said DuVall. “‘Happiest Season’ is extremely important to us, and we could not ask for a better team to collaborate with to bring it to the screen.”

The pic tells the story of a young woman whose plan to propose to her girlfriend while at her family’s annual holiday party is upended when she discovers her partner hasn’t yet come out to her conservative parents.

“Teaming up with Clea to write ‘Happiest Season’ has been a highlight of my life,” said Holland. “I am so proud of what we created, and am thrilled to be partnering with TriStar and Temple Hill in bringing it to life!”

DuVall, who was recently recognized as one of the Alice Initiative’s top 20 rising filmmakers, currently stars in the Emmy Award-winning HBO series “Veep” and recurs in Hulu’s hit “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Her directorial debut, “The Intervention,” which she also wrote and stars in, premiered in dramatic competition at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

Holland, previously named one of Vulture’s 50 Comedians You Should Know, is a veteran of the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater and recently developed the comedy pilot “Romancing the Globe” for YouTube Red.

“Happiest Season’ is a refreshingly modern comedy about the complexity of navigating romantic relationships and family dynamics,” said Hannah Minghella, president of TriStar Pictures. “Clea and Mary have written a hilarious and heart-warming movie full of emotional truth that is sure to become a holiday classic. We’re proud that TriStar is partnering with Clea and Temple Hill to make this film.”

“In ‘Happiest Season,’ Clea and Mary have come up with a brilliant twist on the Christmas comedy that is laugh-out-loud funny and deeply moving,” said Marty Bowen. “It manages to be both timely and timeless in the best of ways and we think it’s a holiday classic in the making.”

Minghella and Shary Shirazi will oversee the project for TriStar Pictures. TriStar Pictures has been a major advocate of getting more female filmmakers on their movies, and have gotten behind the #FemaleFilmmakersFriday that has taken off in the wake of the #TimesUp movement.

DuVall is represented by Gersh and Ginsburg Daniels Kallis. Holland is represented by ICM Partners, Primary Wave Entertainment and Ziffren Brittenham.

Premiering April 2015, Ricci and Clea DuVall Reprise Roles from Hit Original Movie; Jonathan Banks, John Heard, Cole Hauser and Jessy Schram to also Star

PASADENA, CA – January 9, 2015 – Lifetime has ordered two additional episodes of its new limited series The Lizzie Borden Chronicles (#LizzieBorden), in which Golden Globe(R) and Emmy(R) Award nominee Christina Ricci (Monster) reprises her role as the notorious murder suspect from the network’s hit original movie Lizzie Borden Took An Ax. Screen Actors Guild Award(R) winner Clea DuVall (Argo) also reprises her role as Lizzie’s sister, Emma, in the eight-part series, which premieres April 2015.

The Lizzie Borden Chronicles delivers an intense and fictionalized account of actual events and people surrounding Lizzie’s life after her controversial acquittal of the horrific double murder of her father and stepmother in 1892, when the exonerated figure lives a life awash in newfound celebrity filled with scandalous love affairs. But when numerous people close to Lizzie – ranging from her half-brother William (Andrew Howard, Hatfields & McCoys) to Broadway luminaries and her business associate/underworld kingpin Mr. Flowers (Emmy nominee Jonathan Banks, Breaking Bad) — start to mysteriously die under brutal and strange circumstances, legendary Pinkerton detective Charlie Siringo (Cole Hauser, Good Will Hunting) becomes determined to prove her involvement in their ultimate demise. Jessy Schram (Falling Skies) plays Nancy O’Keefe, an alluring and ambitious actress and dancer who befriends Lizzie, and Emmy nominee John Heard (The Sopranos) will portray William Almy, the business partner of Lizzie’s murdered father Andrew.

The Lizzie Borden Chronicles is produced by Sony Pictures Television and executive produced by Judith Verno (Lizzie Borden Took An Ax) and Ricci. The limited series is written by Greg Small & Rich Blaney (Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret), Barbara Nance (House of Lies), Jason Grote (Mad Men) and David Simkins (Grimm). Stephen Kay (Sons of Anarchy) directs episodes one and two, while Russell Mulcahy (Teen Wolf) directs episodes three and four, and Howard Deutch (American Horror Story) helms episodes five and six.

In its January 25, 2014, world premiere, Lizzie Borden Took An Ax averaged 4.4 million Total Viewers. Among social media, it was the evening’s most-tweeted program across television, while it also drove the highest traffic to a movie premiere on mylifetime.com since November 2012. Lizzie Borden Took an Ax was cable’s second most-watched movie telecast of 2014 among Adults 25-54, second only to the Lifetime Original Movie Flowers in the Attic.

Clea DuVall Fan will be back online soon!
January, 07 2015        Posted By Veronique        1 Comment »

Hi, this is Veronique. I am changing hosts with Clea DuVall Fan. My old host decided to delete my website without talking to me first. Luckily I have found a new host: Flaunt Network, that is the good news!

There is some more bad news. I didn’t have everything saved on my laptop from the site, so I have to start over again. So keep checking back soon for the launch of the new Clea DuVall Fan website. I will try to have it back up and running in a few days. I will already start adding the photos that I had saved to the gallery. And I will start making new screencaps from all of Clea’s movies and TV show appearances.
