New trailer for Trash (2014, dir. Stephen Daldry).
Universal Pictures, O2 Filmes, and Working Title co-produced this mostly Portuguese-language film in Rio. Co-produção fascinante!! Has two of Brazil’s biggest film/TV stars. Also, note Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen.
Will open in Brazil in October and hit the festival circuit this fall. Curious to see how this plays both domestically and internationally. Should make a great case study for the book about Rio as a film capital.
The Swedish folk-pop sister act stopped by the KCRW studios just before the release of its latest album, Stay Gold. Watch First Aid Kit perform the title track for Morning Becomes Eclectic.

Don’t wait for anything. Don’t wait till some magical story idea drops into your lap. That’s not where ideas come from. Go looking for an idea and it’ll show up. Begin now. Be a fucking soldier about it and be tough.

Rainy weekend writing time. Thinking about the story of Orfeu & Eurídice in Black Orpheus and listening to Arcade Fire, of course.
