Hulu’s 11/22/63 Adaptation Adds Josh Duhamel to the Cast

Posted by Debi Moore on July 29, 2015

Some casting news for Hulu’s upcoming “11/22/63″ adaptation has arrived with Josh Duhamel joining the project as a rather dubious character.

The “11/22/63″ mini-series follows James Franco’s Jake Epping, a high school English teacher who travels back in time to try to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. He finds his mission threatened by love, the infamous Lee Harvey Oswald (Daniel Webber), and the past itself, which does not want to be changed.

Per THR, Duhamel (pictured below) will play Frank Dunning, the father of Jake’s student Harry Dunning (played by youngster Jack Fulton and Leon Rippy) in 1960s Kentucky. Frank is the rakish town butcher, a ladies’ man with an effortless smile that everyone welcomes — except Jake, the only man who knows the full violence of which Frank is capable.

Other cast members include Chris Cooper, Cherry Jones, T.R. Knight, Sarah Gadon, Nick Searcy, George MacKay, Lucy Fry, and Brooklyn Sudano.

The nine-hour miniseries is a collaboration among J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions, author Stephen King, executive producer/writer Bridget Carpenter, and Warner Bros. Television.  Carpenter (“Friday Night Lights,” “Parenthood”) penned the script and will exec produce the drama alongside King and Bad Robot’s Bryan Burk. Bad Robot’s Kathy Lingg will co-exec produce, and Athena Wickham will produce. Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland) is directing the first two hours.  The drama hails from Warner Bros. Television, and Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution will distribute the series globally.

A premiere date for “11/22/63″ has still not been announced yet so stay tuned!

Vertical Entertainment Takes the Scenic Route

Posted by Uncle Creepy on May 17, 2013

Vertical Entertainment Takes the Scenic RouteAfter a very successful run at this year's South by Southwest Film Festival, Kevin and Michael Goetz's Scenic Route, starring Josh Duhamel and Dan Fogler, has landed itself some distribution. Read on for details.

From the Press Release
Vertical Entertainment has acquired all U.S. rights to the thriller SCENIC ROUTE, starring Josh Duhamel (Safe Haven, Transformers 1, 2, and 3) and Dan Fogler (Balls of Fury and Kung Fu Panda) at the 2013 Cannes International Film Festival. The film marks Kevin and Michael Goetz's directorial debut from a screenplay by Kyle Killen (The Beaver). SCENIC ROUTE first premiered at the 2013 SXSW Film Festival to strong reviews and will be released theatrically in August 2013. Vertical Entertainment’s Rich Goldberg announced the deal today.

“Josh Duhamel has over one billion dollars in box office to his name, yet somehow finds a role in SCENIC ROUTE, unlike any other he’s had before” said Goldberg. "He truly has brought himself to another level, and paired with the wonderful Dan Fogler, we felt the success of the film couldn’t be questioned in the independent market. We plan on utilizing every platform possible, from theatrical, digital and VOD, physical, as well as all other ancillary markets, to get this film to as broad an audience as possible.”

“Given the ever-changing landscape of domestic distribution, Vertical’s experience, spirited initiative, and resourcefulness simply places SCENIC ROUTE in the best position to find its audience and prosper,” said producer Brion Hambel. “Rich and his team leave no stone unturned…and in a time of slimmer margins, this is paramount to the overall success of an independent film.”

SCENIC ROUTE was produced by Brion Hambel and Paul Jensen of Best Medicine Productions (Natural Selection), Anonymous Content’s Luke Rivett (Something Real and Good), and Scott Freeman and executive produced by Duhamel, Keith Redmon (Rendition, The Beaver), and Paul Green (Fun Size, The Beaver).

The deal was negotiated by Peter Jarowey on behalf of Vertical Entertainment and Matthew Sugarman of Weintraub Tobin on behalf of the filmmakers. Premiere Entertainment is handling international sales during the 2013 Cannes International Film Festival.
